Slowly Sinking Slanted Sunlight

*Good luck to the Tag-a-Longs with their downstate relocation. Be sure to rub Abe's nose for me, guys!

*OK, with a big project in the works with a short timeline, I should not be spending time playing video games. The basement already looks like Milton Bradley and the Parker Brothers exploded down there, and there's no sign it's going to get any better any time soon. But, I have found that when doing editing on the computer in the office, I can be working on my project, listening to my I-Pod, drinking beer, and downloading Puzzle Quest 2 all at the same time. The bad part is that after the download was done I found myself doing nothing but playing PQ2. Not really a good thing. So, I guess it's back to the basement for me.

*Slowly but surely it seems the hair in my eyebrows is turning into something reminiscent of animal whiskers. In a year or so, I should be able to find my way around in the dark with them if this trend continues. It's a shame they aren't prehensile.

*Good to hear from Kittyluv and Eve this week.

*There is not a single movie out in the theater that I would pay to go see. Worse than that, there is not a single movie out in the theater that I would make anyone else pay for me to go see. Rental market is looking pretty uninteresting as well. Maybe Iron Man 2. Maybe not.

*I had already made the comment that the spider population was bordering on freakishly huge this year, which is a sentiment I have heard from others as well. What I failed to realize was that this must also be the year that spiders are determined put forth that extra ounce of web building effort. I knew this to be the case when I looked out the kitchen window the other day and saw a spider web shining in the sun that was attached to either the gutter or the eave of the roof. Not a big deal, I thought, since ballooning spiders tend to get hung up on all sorts of things depending on how the wind is blowing on any given day. But this strand wasn't moving in the breeze. So I lean over the sink to take a better look, and I can see this strand of web is going from the bottom of the gutter alll the way down to the bush over by the air conditioner. And down by the bush was this nice triangular web. This is 12, maybe 15 feet or so that this thing spans vertically. It's ridiculous. I just hope that spider isn't compensating for something.

*Starting next week, it's Paula up, and Denise down. Another changing of the guard on second shift.

*I had kinda noticed how far the sun has been coming into the house lately, but it must have never really sunk in what that meant. Sunday night was the first night when I left work and I could see me breath outside. The squirrels are just crazy active all over the place. If Fall isn't officially here, it's right around the corner. Makes sense when I look at the past month or so in retrospect. Don't wanna do much other than sleep. Sheri and I are arguing more often. No appetite, no motivation, no interests, no nothing. She's been asking if I'm taking my meds. Moods are intermittent and unpredictable. I can just see Mike sitting there with that look on his face as he tells me we have plenty of room to go up on my dosage. I really used to like fall. Now it seems more like my brain wants me dead at this time of year. It's just too early for this to be happening already. I could just crawl under the table right now and sleep for who knows how long. Not a good sign. If I bottom out this early in the year...

*I thought my I-Pod was having issues, but now I'm thinking that when I was using that CD-ROM drive that was on it's way to the boneyard it screwed up the file transfer. If that isn't the case it means that I have listened to that Damn Yankess CD so much over the past 2 decades that I wore it out.

*The cartoon was called Justice Friends. Apparently it was a subset of Dexter's Laboratory. I had thought it was it's own show. Anyway, the characters were Major Glory, Valhallen, and Crunk. Yes, Crunk. Why I didn't remember that before this week, I have no idea.
