May 24th

Well…another day and I’m still really sore for some reason…hope I can get rid of this back tightness…I’m moving like an old guy and I refuse to accept that that is what life is going to be…might have to take a day or two off riding to let the soreness in the legs heal up…maybe that will help the back? Had a fun night last night out with G…went back to the Chance but the atmosphere is not what I remembered so we moved back to GL to finish the night…and I was good when I got home so I don’t feel bad this morning…I do need to go out and get a new headlight bulb…have had a bright out for a month and, with the lights being so dim on the wreck, I really do need to replace it…sounds like a project for the day…not much to do other than that…have Tuesday on Tuesday today with pool out in Cascade but that is about it…the rest of the week looks kind of light and I may have to have cocktails at least one night…or more…there will be topics later today…don’t know what they are yet but I know something will strike me….hope it’s not a car…

May 23rd

Well…a complete veg day yesterday in recovery from the party on sat and I was a good boy…but, I still feel kind of strange today…I did sleep okay waiting for the storms and there were dreams again that had me looking for a motorcycle that I owned 30 years ago…yeah, pretty weird but you know that’s me. I think I’m going to take the week off from looking for work since it is so depressing to keep it up with no results…and it’s a great race weekend with F1, Indy cars, and Nascar all racing; traditionally, I watch them all Sunday..especially Indy….and I still hate Versus since I used to be able to watch qualifying and the rest of the process for the Indy 500 and now I only get to see the race. I hope the rain cleaned the car so I don’t have to wash the ashes off….not much to do today..might have a couple with G later and I am going to make chicken for lunch and get some cleaning done around here…I am still in the middle of switching out the winter clothes so I think I should get that done…and a couple more of these out, of course…

Okay…I did want to add one last thing…watched “The Black Swan” yesterday and I was not impressed…an okay movie but all of the hype surrounding it was just that…hype…I’ve seen many better movies in my life and even the throwaway ones from the 40′s were better than that one…and Natalie Portman for best actress? Sorry…but having one expression through the entire movie does not make an oscar winner….I felt the whole thing was contrived and predictable…

May 22nd

Well…it was a fun day yesterday but the fun kind of ran out around 10 so I decided to come home instead of staying in MP and that was a really good decision…felt good to sleep in my own bed and get up and into my normal routine…so I thought I’d get one of these out while I wait for the coffee and the F1 race to start…it was kind of a long drive to do 100 miles after being in the sun all day…well…kind of sun…it showered all day and with the bonfire, everything I had on smells really bad…and just noticed that my car is kind of a grey from all of the ashes it has on it…I don’t feel that bad today and it will be good to get out on the bike before the rains come….coffee is done and I am going to get to relaxing and reading the paper….more later…oh, not much to do today…bike ride, of course, and maybe out for a SF later in the aft…we’ll see…

May 21st

Well…I’m not running late this morning since it is the weekend…I had to read the papers first and get some coffee in me to get jump started on what appears to be a pretty fun day….going to MP to hang out with C and D for their housewarming party that is going to be a pretty big deal..going to stay overnight which, if you know me, is something I never do since I don’t sleep and even after a day of fooling around and partying, I’ll be up at 6 or so when everyone else will be in bed til 10….I’ll be taking off out of here around 1 or so and they don’t have wi-fi so you may not see another of these until I get back tomorrow aft…I do need to get a bike ride in and pack some stuff..I can’t wait until I find a job and get a new phone so I can update from the road…so, I’m going to watch the F-1 qualifying, have another cup of coffee, and then get the bike out…maybe more later…

May 20th

Well…I don’t know when it’s going to stop raining but I hope it’s soon…I need some sun or I think I’m going to go crazy…other than that, it was an okay day yesterday…doing the grocery run hurt, though..93 bucks but that included supplies for the party at C’s tomorrow so I guess I shouldn’t bitch too much…and there is food here again…I’m still having a hard time eating enough…but you’ve heard that before so I’ll stop complaining….not much to do today….I have to go out and find a new cord to connect my walkman to the car stereo but that’s about it….will probably lie out in the sun for a while to even out the skin color but that not really any other plans…was bad last night so I’m going to end here and get some ice water…more later…

May 19th

Well…that’s four days in a row of being good a night here and the benefits are piling up…well…not really but I want to think that…I’m not sleeping much but I still feel better when I get up so that is a plus….have been up since 5 though, and I will need a nap later to make up for it….something to look forward to…I did watch “the Kings Speech” yesterday and while it was a good movie I still can’t understand why it won the oscar for best picture…must have been a pretty weak field….maybe that’s what I’ll do over the next week or so…get all of the oscar nominees from last year and see for myself…or, not, who knows? Not much to do today…have to get groceries and this one is going to hurt since I didn’t buy much last week…and there is no food here so the list is twice as long as normal…oh, well…might have HH with K but that might wait until we are up in MP Sat…oh, I’ll fill you in on that one tomorrow…more later…

May 18th

Well…an okay day yesterday…I lost at pool but was good when I got home so I feel okay other than not sleeping too well…so I am still a little tired this morning….and the rain falling doesn’t help make me smile….the weather looks better later in the week so that is something to look forward to since there is not much else that I can think of…..my back is getting better and it has improved a hundred percent over the last day or so…this was a weird one…normally, it hurts on one side or the other but this time it was all across it and not so much pain as just stiffness…but really bad stiffness that had me walking like an 80 year old and I hope I don’t look that old yet….not much to do today…G’s taking the week off since she has an interview tomorrow so it’s going to be just a take it easy day and night…and it looks that way for the rest of the week until C’s party on Sat…but that is not a bad thing….I don’t need the calories from the cocktails and I feel a lot better when I get up….I am still a few behind for the month but I’m not going to force it…there will be a least one more today…I think I may lay our in the sun today to start getting rid of the biker’s tan I’m getting….more later…

May 17th

Well…a fun lunch with T yesterday and that made the day a pretty good one….I did make some progress yesterday morning..got the tires rotated on the car but didn’t find where the noise is coming from in the rear of it…it has been there for almost a year so it can’t be too serious…I was good last night so I feel okay this morning other than getting up at 5 or so and not sleeping that well…I have been trying to eat a lot more and it has been working…I’ve lost some weight since I’ve started this plan so maybe there is hope for the summer…not much to do today…going out to Cascade for pool later and I do have to work out and ride so I’ll at least have the morning covered…going to be good when I get home tonight to get started on eliminating those calories and let the liver repair itself some…will try to get another one or two out today but, as you know, it depends on what grabs me in the news….more later…

May 16th

Well…had a somewhat fun day yesterday out with K and V playing shuffleboard out in Cascade…K and I won both games so that puts us at 27-4 all time….I was good when I got home so I feel okay today…I did forget to put the heat on when I went to bed last night so it was about 50 in here when I got up this morning…the heat feels good now but the furnace is doing some weird two-step when it shuts off so I may have to have the service folks come…..not much to do today….I think I may have lunch with T but it hasn’t been confirmed yet and I haven’t heard from Tom so I don’t know if Tuesday is going to be Tuesday this week….so, I guess I’ll just have to let the day unfold at it’s own pace and take it as it comes….okay, mixing metaphors again but I’m sure you get the idea….I’ll have two topics later today since I do need to keep up….more later….

May 15th

Well..it’s Sunday so you know the pattern…waiting for the coffee to finish so I can put on Pandora and read the paper….man, it is so depressing to have it rain constantly for two days…okay, right now almost everything is depressing so I guess I shouldn’t blame it on the weather…I was pretty good last night do I feel better today than I have in a long time and I am looking forward to taking a lazy day and watching a movie I’ve had sitting in my mailbox for a couple of days…the problem is the movie is “Casino Jack” and I just watched the documentary of the same name so it’s going to be hard to believe Kevin Spacey as Jack Abramhoff…but I will give it a try later this morning….not much to do today…going to make ribs with G’s recipe today and I am looking forward to having something other than chicken….but I still do need to clean and get the garbage out…not walking out in the rain, though, so that will be much later from the way the radar looks…..I am behind on these for the month do maybe today will be a catch up day, who knows?
