stunningly missing


really?... this box is so tiny... i know, i can click on a link and change the settings so the box is bigger, but it's just so old school to type in this tiny box... remembering way back when i first started here (well, actually, here, but that's beside the point as this one started with some of my favs like nebs who may not find this for a hundred years, or tomorrow, but that is the nuance of this world, or land, time is relative... there, the box is full...

a full box for each paragraph might stifle the babble, but then, i've not been babbling for some time, i mean, this is not exactly babbling, though it might not always be the brevity it was intended to be... this was the middle child, though there are many others (as in hundreds, though only a hundred or so have made it online... yes, i am talking about blogs, diaries, journals, and other assorted books... need i mention i babble?... really?... did you think all i did was ellipse?... or play in parenthetic asides?... did you wonder how long it would take for me to use that term i tend to use a lot?... are you following the stream of consciousness?... how about the steam of consciousness?... curly would understand, too bad he's not my type... i'd like to be idolized in bed again... i mean, don't get me wrong, casual sex has its place, as long as it's good, but there is still something to be said about bonding on every level... like wow... i think i went beyond the tiny box with this paragraph... maybe it's time to step out of my subconscious, or this parentheses, even, and get on with the entry that was in progress before it was ever so not subtly interrupted)... what?...

actually, this was the middle child, but that's another story... catching up on the life loosely sprawled through this diary for many years, it was ten years after this diary began, almost to the day, that i started the latest chapter of this multiphasic life as i started another new career as a health care facility administrator after about sixteen months of yet another early retirement (not as long as taking almost a whole decade off, but then, who's counting?) which followed almost a dozen years as a director of risk management and performance improvement at a psychiatric hospital for children and adolescents (yeah, i have looked at life from both sides now and then, and inside out too) which followed that almost decade of early retirement (retirement is wasted on the old, retire when you are young enough to enjoy it and let the chips fall where they may down the line), but i think we've been here before... loopy?...

yes, so as i've said, this is a self-indulgent trip through the daily life of an ordinary stranger in a strange land who is currently wallowing in ambivalence and practicing procrastination as an art form... if you read regularly you deserve a medal (and a hug... and you can get one if you know how to look) which is part of the introduction or description or whatever we call it

candoor

looking for a few good friends...

(and the silence screams so loudly once you hear it)...

narcissist altruistic dichotomous and usually meandering ramblings that only a mother could love (are you my mother?)...

(I'm not really human, I just play one in this life)

no really, this is a self-indulgent trip through the daily life of an ordinary stranger in a strange land who is currently wallowing in ambivalence and practicing procrastination as an art form... if you read regularly you deserve a medal (and a hug... and you can get one if you know how to look)...

"I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman where the Self Help section was. She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose." - Steven Wright

and then, 42.

breathe deep, the settling mist...

about favorites... to begin to find my favorites, and yourself, see my multitude of other diaries for other favorites lists (I am going to try not to duplicate, for I will never have room for you all in any one place)...

and remember your towel

your caring matters much more than words can say and probably much more than you will ever know unless you visit offline...

(just tell us you love us, so we don't feel alone)

so many referencesm so many memories... so we all know that babble lovers believe that repetition is the simplest form of charity, or was that flattery, and imitation is the sincerest, perhaps, but as we've never seen anybody who quite does the babble as this babbler does (many have tried, few have follied... and while we're on the subject, many have followed, few have follied) so give us a kiss, pookie, aye?...

but first, random links...

link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link (locked) link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link link


more may appear at any moment as there are many missing links (get it?) in literal and figurative and metaphoric terms... and there is the one lone word, locked, as a kind of tribute to the locked ones that i can no longer access... it is not all about linkage, though there is ego strokes and such in being popular in that way and the irony (if it's irony) that all this wonderful babbling has not been noticed by the most popular kids on diaryland over the years (i mean, how nelse would you explain them not adding me to their favorites list, right?... shhhh, don't blow the ego bubble... but if you must blow something i can, well, nevermind)... seriously though, it is a fact of life that while the popular kids converse with me from time to time, having been around since the beginning, the popularity was never bestowed on me... which only goes to show that babbling loses audiences faster which proves that we are more add and adhd than ever as a culture... yeah, that's the links story and it doesn't have to make sense, it's babble... but if you look closely beyond the links, or rather, before and after the links, which are merely a distraction for you and a deeply woven memory for me that will be rumunated over some other time, there is an obvious thread of consciousness and sense or sensibility and even rational mind (got reason?... we've got a prayer for that... mind?) running (or at least strolling, if not meandering) through this entry as if there was a purpose and

but we all know it can (and sometimes does, oh my, say it is not so?) end just as quickly as it began (just think, we were #1 at goggle for a while there, ya know?)... even after years... cuz imagination is infinite, after all...

of course it could just continue elsewhere :)
