Dream on

Listening to Massive Attack as a break from the Peeping Tom marathon I've been going through.  Why do I always end up only liking bands well after they've come and gone?  Another one like that for me is Postal Service.  I just recently discovered them and I love them.  Honestly, I don't think I would have appreciated or even liked either Peeping Tom or Postal Service when they came out.  I just wasn't into that music at that point in my life.  Maybe I've matured musically.

So, Katya's mom's condition is getting worse.  I don't really know how to tell her but I know I am going to have to tell her something. I already know her Grandmother and rosie aren't gonna be helpful.  I feel really bad for her because the only family Katya has is her mom and her grandma.  No aunts or uncles.  No dad.  So, it's extra rough.  She seems to be having a good time at my house, though, so that is good.  I'm a little scared.

Rangers for a Zombie-Free Workplace

I found a pink cigarette on the bed the day that you left

So, slumber party at Asher's house last night!  Yeah...even on a school night.

Here's the skinny.  Basically, the girl that Roro watches with Asher, Katya, came and spent the night last night.  She is on spring break this week so it worked out pretty okay.  She's probably spending tonite and maybe tomorrow and the next night and who knows how many nights. 

Poor girl.  Her mom is in the hospital with pneumonia in ICU.  I guess she can't breath without breathing tubes.  Katya is scared and upset but I think she is being a pretty good sport about the whole thing.  She's been in the hospital for 4 days already and she isn't getting better.  I'm pretty worried about her.  Her heart rate is wrong, too, and they can't seem to figure out why.  I hope this isn't a case for Dr. House.  It's kind of a funny coincidence, too, she is in the same hospital that she works for. 

Either way, I wasn't going to let Katya sleep on Roro and Richie's floor for the next week so I decided she could come home and stay with us, at least we have a spare bed and bedroom.  Plus, I don't know if Ro and Richie could handle the additional stress of being full time parents right now.  Roro thinks this is super good and awesome training for our next child.  I said, I hope our next child isn't born as a seven year old.  I don't know if I could handle that.

I hope Katya's mom gets better soon.  :(

More Mike Patton for you today.  I told you, I'm on a kick.  I love this song.

I really like the way it feels, the motion, heavy wheels

Lovage is great.  Why isn't there more music like Lovage? 



I'm feeling なつかしtoday, it's kind of a nostalgic feeling but more like reminiscing about nothing in particular, just random things from your past that make you happy.

It might be the peeps I had squirreled away in my desk.  Probably not.  Perhaps the lack of sleep from working a double yesterday?  Maybe.  I have a million things to do today and no time to get them done. 

New podcasts I found that I like:  99%invisible and too much information.  I actually haven't listened to a whole episode of tmi yet so I can't really report on it but 99% invisible is really good.  It's a short podcast (about 3 minutes) that talks about things you might see everyday but are so normal to you that you might overlook them.  It's based out of San Fransisco so it has a lot of references there but it's an interesting show to listen to anywhere you live. Listen to one episode, you'll know what I mean.

I don't expect to feel regrets from this

There's really not a whole lot to talk about today, I'm working a double so I'll be here all day.  And night.  I wore my pajamas to work this morning because I figured there's no reason to get dressed when my day is going to go as follows: get up, go to work, change into uniform, work all day, go home, go to bed.  So, why get dressed, right?  Ry asked me if I was really gonna wear my jammies to work.  I told him yea, for the reason above.  He just shrugged. 

Anyway, weren't you proud of my two real blogs in the last week?  The Diva Cup one and the list of job skills for the coming Zombipocalypse.  Two in a week, that is really impressive for me. 

So, thinking on Zombipocalypse, I'm in the party planning stage.  I'm thinking May 6th.  If you read this, you are obviously invited, even if I never met you before.  Because you are that cool.  Just hit me up in the comments section and we will figure out something. 

Ideas for menu?  I'm open to suggestions.

Boys beware! Diva Cup, girl stuff, don't say I didn't warn you

I'm serious.  If you have a penis and don't want to hear a detailed review of my new Diva Cup (it has to do with periods), turn back now.  And ladies, this might be too much information for you, too, if you are feeling a bit squeamish.  Fair warning. 

Seriously, turn back now, don't click on the 'read more' or whatever it says when I do the 'you have to click here to read more' bar on my blog settings. 

I warned you.

It's things like this that I make me not cool

So, me, davey and ry went to see Henry Rollins spoken word at the Cleveland Art Museum last night (which we all thought was a weird place for the venue to be located *shrugs*) and I felt motivated to email him this morning.  I'm usually not very into the emailing famous people kind of thing, I feel that they are way too busy doing things that make them famous then to hear some complete stranger (me) tell them that I really like them and how they influence my life or whatever.    So, what did I do this morning?  It might have been from the lack of sleep or the enormous headache I have that convinced me that this would be a good idea but I wrote one to Henry.  Here it is, just so you can make fun of me for today.  Today's normally an off day for blogs, too, but this was too embarrassing not to share with all of you.

Thanks for stopping in Cleveland, I really enjoyed the show last night.  I have seen your spoken word shows three times now and every time they are always awesome.  I know you aren't necessarily trying for 'motivational speaker' but I really do feel moved and motivated after going to your shows.  Also, you make me feel better about humanity as a whole.  I am a little envious of you that you can go all over and meet so many interesting and diverse people with such an open mind and kind heart.  You make me want to be a better person and I will strive to do so. 

Sorry this came off as kind of sappy. 

I have listened to several of your CDs and, as I mentioned before, have been to several of your shows.  You are just so open and candid when you speak that I feel that you are a good friend of mine who I haven't seen in a while and last night we just got a chance to catch up.  I am sure that might sound kind of creepy, so sorry about that as well, I'm not trying to be creepy... 

Anyway, this is the first time I've written to you (and probably the last time since this email is sounding more stalkeresque and less like a normal person of which I'd like to assure you I am the latter).  I just wanted you to know that I really enjoyed the show last night and always appreciate the chance to see you when your travels take you out this way.

Thanks!

So, there, make fun of me all you want.  I am already embarrassed. I'll post his response if I get one from him.

I wrote this for the three of us

bonus zombipocolypse photo blog!

Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.7

Maybe it's the same fucking moment, the same notion

Hmm...I'm a little sad that no one made any comments about what you guys think I have to offer the world.  I mean, other than an awesome (mostly) daily blog.  I know you all appreciate that regularly.   But in the event of Zombipocolypse 2011 I fear that Internet availability may be difficult to come by...

Either way, I worked on my homework even if you, my faithful and most important readers (in some ways the only way I know I even exist, it's like the axiom if a tree falls in the woods...if a blog isn't read on the Internet, did it ever really exist at all?), failed to do so.  Shame.  Okay, enough shaming, let's move on, shall we?

So, obviously I'm either not incredibly skilled at a whole lot of useful things or I am overlooking skills that obviously make me a shining star.  It's really your call, I suppose. Most of you know me so you can make your own decisions about the accuracy of my chart and it's possible missing components. 

I've probably wasted enough time at work today...I know I wanted to write more on this but there's always later and tomorrow.  At least until the zombipocolypse. Then there will still be tomorrow but it won't be the same.

I must be good at something,I mean, there must be a reason for me, right?

First off, I can't find a video of the song I'm referencing in the title line of my blog today.  Gah.  I'll substitute with another song by the same band but it just doesn't have the same affect, you know?  You know.

So, I am using the title today, either way, because I was recently listening to a podcast about Freegans and dumpster diving on stuff you should know.  So apparently there is a website that you can go to if you are a freegan and find ways to volunteer your time to earn free services from other people volunteering their time as well, it's called timebanking.  Basically you say on this site that you can provide this service or training or whathaveyou and when you do you claim it for timebank dollars that you can later trade for other services from other people doing the same thing as you.  

Which made me think about what services I have for the public.  What I can teach people.  I mean, I'm not going to go freegan, I just like to think about how I can be useful.  For example, in the case of the impeding zombie apolcolypse of 2011, what skills to I have that will help further the pursuits of survival for the human race?  I work alone all day so I have these little thought excercises to keep me thinking and stuff.  Or I'd be the first zombie of the apocolypse and that is just unacceptable.  

I'm having a hard time coming up with a list of things that I contribute to society.  I'm going to think on this all day and try to come up with a list and post it tomorrow.  Any suggestions?

Just to be absolutely sure of the facts

I am actually working on two for real blog posts, not just slice of life stuff.  Aren't you proud of me?  I'm not sure when I'll have them done but you'll be the first to know, like usual.

So, Rachel's bday party.  Was awesome.  We went to Claddagh.  Or however you say it.  I think I need more nasal pressure to say it right, honestly.  Ry and I had never been there and so we parked in the completely wrong side of the shopping place and had to walk all around, but the weather was nice so it wasn't so bad, except we were running late.  There is a fence that blocks the restaurant off from the rest of the shopping center that we had to go around, too.  That was just annoying.

Either way, it was lots of fun, just me and my bro, rachel, ry and davey.  Wine was half off if you got a whole bottle so me and the bro split that and dave and ry had Guinness.  Fish and chips for the win! We had a super nice and cute gay guy waiter, too.  Very amusing. 

After we ate we walked around Legacy Village for a while but all the stores we wanted to visit were closed.  We did go to the awesome toy store there and bought Asher dinosaur stuff.  Cause we can't go anywhere and not buy him stuff.

The weather has been so nice the last few days, I'm sad that by Thursday it will be snowing again.  Makes me sad.  Oh well.  Pretty soon I'll be complaining it's too hot.  You just watch.

Earth and sky your cradle, earth and sky consume you

So...

Went to a birthday party for Kattie yesterday at Tulse Gym in Twinsburg.  I was under the impression that it was at a "little gym" style gym, you know, where little kids can play around and not worry about dying every two minutes (or less in our case).  Um...no, it's a real gymnastics gym.  With the uneven bars and lots of trampolines and a huge half circle whole in the ground 4 feet deep with a bar of doom.  All of those things. 

So, Asher was the only little one there, all the other kids were between 5-8 years old.  No one wanted to play with Asher, not even Katya.  He really wanted to play.  They wouldn't let him do anything with the parachute (other than just hold onto the handle).  Then they kids started doing trampoline stuff and Asher's 2.2 tantrums a minute began. (Sorry if my typing or grammar sucks today, someone turned the heat in my office off and it's currently 34 degrees in here.  Fuuuuu.....)  I mean, I understand, he really wanted to play and play with the big kids.  But...

So, one of the ladies let him swim in a big pit of foam blocks for a while and that was good but it wasn't enough.  And after about 35 minutes and 500 tantrums later, it happened.  The moment. 

Let me preface this with the fact that Ry decided he had to be at a fight party during the middle of this.  I guess this goes to show I am incapable of handling my child at children's parties by myself because he was fine at the last one he took asher to.  Mind you, it was at a jump house of inflatables so it was a little different but not different enough.  Anyway, he leaves and I have no support.  Rosie and Richie are there but...well...yea.

Anyway, at almost 40 minutes in, everything I do isn't good enough and Asher is melting down like a popsicle on hot pavement and he finally snaps. He was trying to run to other children as they trampolined into the air and into the foam block pit.  They wanted nothing to do with him and were ignoring him.  I could just see him taking a front kick to the head.  So I grab him and pull him back.  And he bites me, hard enough through my sweatshirt to leave a mark in my skin for a half hour afterwards. 

I am done.  I'm stressed out, frustrated, upset.  All of the kids parents are watching this whole horror show that asher and I are starring in, and I grab asher up, swing him over my shoulder and drag him kicking and screaming, telling him we don't bite and since we did we are going home.  Did I mention half the people there are related to Ryan? Joy.  So I hand him off to Rosie and she gives me "the look", you know the one, it's specially reserved for mother in laws to give to their daughter in laws when they don't approve.  She holds him down while I put on his shoes and coat.  He is crying and saying 'sorry, sorry, kattie, sorry, blocks' over and over making me feel even more like shit but I'm upset and I'm not going to spank him (like my mom said I should have) so I need to discipline him some way, so we leave.  Like, you bite people and now you have to leave the (not so) fun place.

Outside katya's grandmom comes out, a sweet little russian lady, and lectures me on not to be mad at him and just calm down and relax and so forth and so on.  I just want to leave at t his point.  I'm feeling humiliated and ashamed alone and asher is freaking out and  I just want to get home.  I'm on the verge of tears (I didn't cry though, bully for me). 

Finally we get home and I give Asher a popsicle and we watch yo gabba and things are okay.  Until it's time to put on Jammies.  Apparently we have entered the terrible twos.

Thanks to Ann for all the support last night.  It was much needed.

I had wanted to write about how awesome Rachel's birthday was but this was fresh and upsetting and kind of took over.  I'll try to write about it tomorrow.  Cause it was pretty awesome.

You think you've got it all worked out

I heard from my friend in Japan yesterday.  What a relief.  She and her family are fine, scared and shaken but fine.  I haven't checked the news yet but hopefully nothing worse has happend overnight.  Well, it would have been daytime there but you know what I mean.

Had a meeting about nothing yesterday, I think it was supposed to give us moral and make us feel better but our boss's boss told us he didn't expect any of us to have moral right now and he could understand why we didn't.

I'm so glad today is Thursday.  Even though I only worked 3 days this week it feels like it's been a long week.  It really has.  Blarg. 

oh, and happy saint patty's day.  I've never really celebrated and will continue to not celebrate today.  I'm just not a big green beer fan I guess.

The mood it changes like the wind

I found $126.00 in the pocket of the pants I put on this morning.  Talk about scoring, right?  Usually if you find money in a pocket it's only like 5 bucks or 20 at the most.  You would have thought I'd noticed that I misplaced $126.00.  Well, past tense me is a sucker.  Thanks past tense me! Maybe that means today will be a good day.

I sent an email to my friend in Japan a few days ago and now I find myself obsessively checking my email to hear back from her.  She lives in Yokohama, a suburb of Tokyo.  I know they are having massive blackouts and stuff and that she has bigger things to worry about then checking her email but I still worry.  I hope she is okay.  I actually found a thingy for my igoogle page so that it translated everything I said in English to Japanese text since I couldn't write the whole email in Japanese (I have forgotten a lot of it, watashi no nihongo wa warui desu ne!) and I don't know how much English she remembers so I just made it easy for both of us, writing in English and putting Japanese after it. 

I offered her to come and stay with us if they needed to get out of the country.  I know it's ridiculous to think that she would take me up on it but I'm serious.  I mean, I do have a condo that no one is living in or buying, her family could come and stay there for a while.  And spare rooms in my house, even if we are down a massively large basement room. I don't know.  I get like this sometimes, where I have stupid over-idealistic ideas that are...well, they just are, right?  Yeah...so...

The nuclear meltdown is scaring me pretty badly, too.  I'm very afraid for Japan, for the environment, for the world.  It's very terrifying.  I'm going to research how to treat radioactive contaminated water.

Oh, and by the way, thanks to Rachie for the music today.  :)

This song may be particularlly good for the youngsters

I'm feeling crappy again today.  I couldn't call off again since I had already used two days, a third would require a dr's note which I am not going to waste health care professional time obtaining.  I know they will just tell me to get some rest, it's a cold.  Or a sinus infection.  Same difference to me, being that the treatment for both is to rest and drink lots of fluids. 

Anyway.  Made homemade rolls yesterday from scratch.  It was nice.  Relaxing.  There's something about kneading dough.  Also, I zoned out in front of the computer for most of the morning, I really couldn't tell you what I did other than try to write an email in Japanese to my friend in Japan, fail miserably, get the google translator thingy on my igoogle page and then have it write in Japanese for me. 

Then I played 4 hours of dead space 2.  It's so awesome I can't even put it into words.  How awesome it is.  I freaking love it so much that I know I'm not even good enough to have it's babies. 

Came back to work, got in trouble.  Isn't that just the way shit goes down around here?  I'm really glad they missed me so much here. 

Monday, March 14, 2011

Is out of the office today, please leave a message after the beep.

I'm sick.  two days in a row of calling off work.  I feel a little better today but I woke up feeling the worst that I have felt yet.  I've noticed that that's usually a good sign for me, once I get the "worst I've felt" out of the way it's pretty quick for me getting better. 

Got my girl scout cookies yesterday.  Rock.  I miss being a girl scout some days.  It was fun.

I have been dwelling on the tragedies in Japan a lot.  Ry says I'm obsessing.  I think that I am but I have always been horrifically fascinated by nuclear threat and devastation.  It bothers me a lot, ever since I watched the movie Grave of the Fireflies.  That, and I have friends who live in Japan, a few of whom live in Tokyo, who I am worried about. 

Also, sometimes it's hard for people to understand tragedies of large scale in places they can't relate to (such as Haiti and the middle east).  At least, I figure it is.  What I mean to say is, it is for me.  I don't understand the way people in the middle east think culturally (which may make me sound stupid but a: I'm sick and obviously not phrasing things right and b: maybe I am stupid, but it's my blog so there) and so it makes it hard for me to comprehend the tragedy in the way that I can with the Japanese crisis that is happening now.  Also, I've never been to the middle east or to Haiti but I have been to Japan.  And the Japanese may be different than we are culturally but they have a lot of similarities to us here stateside, too, and I can relate to those. 

I don't know.  It makes me very anxious and worried.  I've been following the nuclear (and yes, I can't help myself, I always say it wrong before I say it right...nucular first and then nuclear, probably because I'm stupid) crisis obsessively

This ain't your typical nook

Just a quickie post today.  I'm looking at putting in a book nook in the currently still soggy and much mildewy basement when it's all said and done.  Here are some pictures I found on the internet I'm gonna use for inspiration.  Anyone out there do any of this kind of construction that can help me out?

It would be going in a corner with a window for natural lighting.  I kind of want to combine these two styles together into something that would be perfect for the basement.  I just wish I had more money to work with...come on Condo, sell!

It doesn't matter where they touch you

Overwhelmed with things today.  It's actually a good feeling. Like I'm being productive.

How do you know if someone respects you as a person?  I wonder.  Sometimes people leave me feeling flat, just kinda 'eh' and confused. 

Other than that, things are just peachy.  Water in the basement again.  we are up to 2 inches when I left this morning.  So that's gonna rock.  Ah, basement, we need to come to an agreement.  Seriously.  Water stays on the outside! Well, not in my house.  Maybe I should install a basement in-ground pool?


Wednesday, March 9, 2011

Don't tell me don't tell me don't tell me.

So, no one missed me yesterday?  Well, one person did.  But, well, no internet at work yesterday and I didn't have time to write on my phone since I was out in the field sampling all day. 

Water is still high, in case you were wondering.  Crazy high. Oh, and more rain today?  Just great.  More rain all week?  Yup.  Thanks Ohio weather. 

I'm reading garbage urban fantasy again, too.  The series I'm reading right now isn't very good but I find myself still wanting to see what happens.  Don't worry, there are only 9 books in this series (so far).  I just started the second one.  I suck. I was re-reading the George R.R. Martin books (newest one comes out July 12!  and the TV show starts sometime this year, too!) but I keep finding stupid crap to listen to (audio books) and then if the audio book for the next one isn't available then I just download the ebook.  Yup.  Shame shame shame.

And I am kicking ass and taking names in Dead Space.  I finished two chapters last night.  I'm on 9 now.  I just got Dead Space 2 so I'm looking forward to playing it soon, too.  Dead Space is sooooo good.  I don't know why I didn't play it sooner.  *Shrugs*

On the ground, raining down...the drain. And the record's skipping.

NASA found evidence of alien life.  How cool is that? Well, maybe found it, maybe it's a hoax.  But...it's still cool in my book. 

So, we are going to redo the basement I think, since we will probably have to rip the paneling off the walls to reseal the basement.  I want to put in a comfy book nook.  I'm taking suggestions of cool things to do with the basement.  Anyone have any? 

Flood water is still pretty high around work.  Maybe if it stops raining long enough I can actually find the road again.  Two middle aged men, under dressed for the situation, were kayaking the river yesterday (which is stupid and deadly in itself with the water so cold and so high) stealing wood by collecting it from drifts and floating it behind their kayak.  I guess it isn't really stealing but it is trespassing and pretty freaking stupid.  Is some nice free lumber really worth hypothermia, frostbite or death?

Here's a video of the awesome churning water action in the river right now.  It's kind of crazy.

I feel the knife going in, I feel like it's not enough to kill me

So, basement is flooding at my house.  The finished side, not the side with the sump pump, of course.  Nope, it's coming in the walls just behind the entertainment area.  So, of course Ry and I dealt with it like civilised adults. 

Nope just kidding, he flipped the fuck out.  Hard core.  Like, balls to the wall flipped out.  Massive angry freak out.  I was like, find your inner calm dude and let's deal with this.  Put on your coping hat and grab the freaking shop-vac.  It's really not something to flip out over, you know?  It happens. 

Ryan told me it doesn't happen to him.  Well, I told him, now it does, calm the fuck down and deal with it.  You know, zen gardening in soggy carpetting and stuff like that.

A fun fact about new carpeting that gets wet you might not have known.  It smells like cat pee.  I know this because I work in the water industry and our #1 water complaint during flooding events is that their new carpet smells like cat pee when it floods.  It's from a chemical that is used to treat the fibers to keep them all perky and plush and happy to be downtrodden that when combined with water in more than just a little spill smells like your cat just came by and took a steaming piss all over your floor right in front of you to let you know that he doesn't approve of all this flooding in your basement. 

So we are going to have to pull the panelling off the walls once it drys out and re-seal the walls.  Hopefully it's not the floor, too, because I don't really want to re-carpet the basement.  I told him that I know we weren't planning on remodeling the basement just yet but now we are.  I need to find some people to help us move the couches upstairs for now so we can really get going on the basement once it dries out.  Yeeha. 

And flooding at work.  More photos?  these are from thursday, I haven't yet taken the photos from today.  And more snow.  Yes!  Wait, no, I was kidding.  What I meant to say was 'please make it stop' while groveling to the powers that control the weather on my hands and knees in 4 1/2 feet of water going over Ravenna Road right now.  Icy cold 34 degree water.  It's gonna be a good 16 hour shift today.  Wish me luck.

I don't know, it makes me feel like, makes me feel like shit

So...another failed attempt at the EPA thing.  I was getting good reviews at first so I thought I had done well...but no, not so much.  So, I'm kind of bummed out today. 

Also, still flooding everything and now everyone is an expert on how to have prevented it. Where were they when I was asking for guidance two or three weeks ago? Wanna see some flood pics? Here you go.


Also, does anyone know what I am doing wrong that all my photos lately seem to be coming out pink?  I didn't change anything on my camera but the white always comes out as pink, and yesterday afternoon I couldn't get the camera to take a good picture to save my life. 

And check out the video at the bottom.  It's of the very tippy-top of the Cuyahoga River, which normally runs like a small intermittent stream (resembling a small creek, really).  I narrate it like a dork, too.

It's time to lose your mind and let the crazy out.

Kesha is pretty unattractive.  More so than Lady Gaga.  And her lyrics?  Dumb as hell.  But the beat is catchy.  Damn her. 

"Munster is like edible lactose gold"  The best line in the whole video.  Don't believe me?  Just watch.  How can you not, when you will get to see Kesha make out with a unicorn in a suit with a nose ring while trying to make James Van Der something jealous (I still don't recognize him, btw... tho he is pretty hot)?  See, now you have to watch, you can't stop yourself.  And I didn't even mention the crazy rainbow shootout.  It's seriously one of those velvet unicorn color-by-number posters all done up into a music video.

I'm pretty sure she was on crack while making that video, too.  Crack cocaine. 

I missed doing anything special for my 300th post.  It was my lazy yesterday phone post.  Sad, isn't it?  Hooray for 300?  Hip hip, hore-listen to your goddamned Ke$ha and get back to work, eh?

this place is a prison

Man, i really have nothing today. I can't get motivated at work, I can't focus. I bought a new book yesterday that I had been excited about the release of for a while and instead of getting stuff done I pretty much found every excuse I could to read it, including not sleeping very much at all last night (I might have stayed up waaaay too late). I finished it today and it was really good but now I feel a little empty inside. Do you ever feel that way when you end a really good book? I often feel that way. It will pass but for now its gonna be a morose and probably unproductive day.
