    I'm an asshole.

    An asshole that knows when he's about to be an asshole, stops himself, but is still amazed at the level of asshole-y he is.

    To wit -- one of my friends wanted to make a meme where people superimposed her face on random things. One of her friends put her face on Jesus Christ and a Catholic friend said, quote, "Im sorry [REDACTED] not much offends me but that picture of Our Sacred Heart of Jesus with your face imposed and with a cigarette is not one bit funny. Im Catholic and that is just so wrong."

    I wanted to respond with something petty like, "Get over it, sugar. Learn to have some fun. I'm Episcopalian and I thought this was hilarious as fuck. Also, [name of friend who made the post], don't worry about causing offense. Do what you want."

    I mean, I did catch myself before I actually said it. Just...damn.

    Brief reminder:

    If your brain ever tells you that you don't deserve to be happy because of whatever reason it concocts -- it is, of course, full of complete and absolute BS. You are allowed to be happy.

    This is why I could never be a city-dweller.

    This lady said it pretty well, I think, G.S.:

    Pink - "Perfect"

    I came to the conclusion that I'm going about writing my WIP in the wrong way. The problem is that I have to convince myself that what I write is worth reading, but if I am actually writing about my own past experiences and activities how do I make it interesting enough to read myself? I just keep thinking "Yeah, the same thing happened to me once. So what?" which isn't particularly helpful.

    Reading through my emails and notes from the past I found a reference to the occasion when our next door neighbours showed us a photo of a UFO that had been circling our homes a few nights earlier. It was barely a smudge on the digital image of course but I became very doubtful when they told us that they'd seen it on a previous occasion. Even if aliens had crossed the galaxy to fly around our homes what had been so interesting that they came back, or were these some friends that they'd told about us? I mean, we just aren't that special, so far as I know.

    So, I think I'll junk the three chapters already written and anyway I have a brand new idea for the introduction, so I ought to get started on that. The only trouble is that I'm not even sure that I want to write any of it. That's significant as the work is about the apparent link between my feelings and future events in my life, so there may be some problem ahead blocking it. It's either the way that I'm writing it or the fact that I am, but I don't know which yet. So far as I know it isn't when.

    Oh well, with the Autumn season starting there may be something worth watching on TV until this fog in my mind clears.
    'Sharing an experience creates a reality.' Create a new reality today.
    'There has to be some give and take.' If I can take my time I'm willing to give it.
    'The most difficult criticism that a writer has to comprehend is silence.' So speak up.

    Fixed the shotgun. Takin' it back to the neighbor as soon as he's home.

    Had to make a screw for it, since it's so old and new parts won't fit.

    First day of eighteen days on my own, took the missus to the airport last night, she is off to Rwanda to see gorillas, then by truck across Uganda to Kenya and the Masai mara game reserve.

    My co-worker got a call and left early. His wife was sick, and he had to rush home to take care of her.
    Rick is just two months from retirement. I am really praying that his wife's ailment is neither serious nor chronic. They've been planning so many things for his retirement.
    Fate can be cruel.
    I am looking forward to seeing Rick tomorrow, and laughing at this non-event. I'm not a very positive person. This is hard.
