Randomness XVII: The Madness of the Quorum

Recommended Posts

I got a call, right as my alarm clocks were starting to go off, from my dad telling me that is sister (my aunt) had died. No idea what the cause is but I have very mixed feelings about this.

Let me put it to you this way: I have a character in Deadlands named after my aunt, Nona "Cookie" Calhoon (not her last name). The "cookie" part in the character is because she's a tough one. When I was coming up for the name, I told my friend "I'm going to name her after the biggest B in my family." So... You can see why things are mixed for me.

I doubt that my dad and I would be invited to attend a funeral (I'm going to assume there's not going to be one with The Plague around) seeing as my aunt's husband told my dad a while back to "Stop calling the house."

And people wonder why I don't talk with my family... <_<

needed to mope, sorry bout that.  put it behind spoilers because it really is a first world problem but life is really beginning to wear and, once again, there is not even anyone i can rail against or get angry at.

Ever get the feeling that there is some higher power out there that just doesn't like you?  Was planning on a vacation at a nice little cabin on the edge of the Smoky Mountain national park complete with isolation, hot tub, views and a game room.  Today i get a call that the current tenant managed to short out the electrical system and what they have available is a much smaller house, basically in town with no hot tub, no game room and only two bedrooms.  My wife cant move her vacation so now I'm stuck in a location with insufficient space with the everybody tripping over each other the entire week or stuck going nowhere, again, for the entire week.  And, of course, not one person in the family has lifted a finger to help with the vacation planning or getting anything done for it.

 

what i love is the realtor calling to tell me the issue is going on about how this is better: smaller house, less amenities, poor view, less seclusion, same price.  I fail to see how this is an improvement just because its closer to a town.  I rent a cabin because i want to get away from people, not because i want to be near a city in lockdown.  

 

Sorry for the downer,  I really should be happy that i am still around and as healthy as I am but it would be nice if things occasionally worked out at least close to what i was looking for.  
 

 

 

no need to be sorry. we all have our moments. we are family here and we all pretty much understand. sometimes is VERY hard to see the good when something crappy happens. I hope things work out for the best.

No need to be sorry. That's a really sucky situation. And no way I'd pay full price for less. Maybe you and the Mrs. can find somewhere else to stay? AirBnB?

First break of the day. Finally getting to sit down for a few. Everyone is doing as well as can be. Moved dad out to the main room with the big TV... how one person can watch so much golf is beyond me (see Robin Williams' bit on the invention of golf for my feelings on the game... be warned, lots of swearing/vulgar language for those who don't like that). Otherwise, nothing else has changed around here.

 

Oh, except now there are at least two giant bees in the basement that I have to figure out how to either capture or kill before they make a nest... if I can find them, they only come out randomly when I am putting laundry in the dryer.

 

Decided to write on my dad's cast (when he finally gets it, still working on the swelling) "It wasn't the fall, it was the sudden stop" and numerous other things.

Sure feels like a Monday to me. ::(: Tempted to get stupid drunk, but I have to get mini's ready for tomorrow morning's Airbrushing class & I'm not that drinking & airbrushing would be a good mix.

If you saw the room you would probably  think that a change was needed. Harley Orange & Black.

Sorry for the rotten day.

Probably a good call on the not drinking and airbrushing, though.

I was going through my writing folder in Drive and found a thing that was based off a dream I had a long time ago. I could've sworn I'd started writing it. I remember, or think I remember, vague details of what I'd written but can't find the doc anywhere. These are the notes I have about the dream:

 

  • Today. Today was the day the fish left. It happens most years but this year was different. The fish were just gone.//
  • Today the black birds left the forest. I think they’re gone for good.//
  • You can’t see the forest for the black hole.
  • That’s what they tell me but I’ve never seen either. This island is barren. I want to see this forest and ever illusive black hole.//
  • It rained today. No sound came but it rained. No pitter patter on the roof, just silence.//

 

Should be enough to get me going. Might map out some stuff if I can but might just run with it.
