A band and dancing



  • A band and dancing = Abandoned dancing = Abandonment = A good Bridget Jones story. Abandoned bike wheels locked to bike racks - I don't know whether the bike frame was stolen, removed, or whether the bike owner lost his/her key to the lock. And quite frankly, I don't care. Just get rid of it so you don't take up space on the rack.
  • IT people who, upon being asked about tweaks to computers or installation of software that's needed for what you have to do, say, "I don't recommend it" should be cast into the 6th circle of hell forthwith.
  • When you can buy Motrin because of strict budgetary guidelines and Aleve does weird stuff to your epithelial lining - that's the definition of a bad start to the week. Even worse is when you speak of the start to week on a Wednesday. 
  • Overly dry apricots and overly wet soil.
  • Scattered crocuses that remain scattered and not buried.


And from here, I could very easily spiral down and become even crankier than I already am. However, I shall take the high road and reboot the day (not the computer though cos that's part of the second bullet point above) by doing the following - simple steps to get out of powerful vortices.


  • Listen to Lulu's Independence (CJ Mackintosh Club Remix).
  • Make a list on Keep.
  • Add histology slides for PDX.
  • Dream little (tiny really) dreamlets of sunny, warm and sandy beaches.
  • Add new abstracts to old abstracts.
  • Plant more crocuses.
  • Give the worms some paper to snuggle into and nestle within.
  • Make an NFC tag for toggling bluetooth.
  • Read another paper or two.
  • Write an agenda for the good Drs.
  • Go to final meeting of persuasion.
  • Stop watching Modern Family.
  • Dream little baglet dreams of mango-tango.
  • Remember that "Food is not love", as Irma what's her face said.
  • Go to Momma and be traumatized.
  • Watch Omelette and send it out to someone what should watch it too.
  • Ignore what George Bernard Shaw said about youth being wasted on the young.
  • Lay dying dreams (like marigolds) to rest.
  • Use commas better.
  • Look up Angiogenesis and memorize the definition.
  • Send out a letter and let the wild pack of journals be released, not in a controlled manner.
  • Get the remaining four wilderbeest out into the wilderness.
  • Don't explain yourself. 
  • Make and appointment with the good Drs.
  • Tick off items on the Keep list.
  • Ask whether anybody wants an invitation to Inbox.
  • Drink more water.
  • Hydrate and freeze assets. Seriously. 
  • Make a deal with self - buy Motrin and freeze assets. Don't buy Motrin till November and keep assets liquid. Yah. I can do this.
  • Vacuum and mop the floor without a thought for what goes on in Hades.
  • Piss over the balcony if necessary to maintain order.


There. I feel better already.
