the day before the day before


yesterday (which was yesterday based on the day above, but the entry before the previous entry if you are reading in real time and I suppose it doesn't matter too much if you are reading in some future time because tomorrow, everything is yesterday, or something like that), I woke in time to see most of 24, which is Precious's favorite show at the moment... reruns of that and Friends could play for weeks and she'd be a happy camper... with some Dawson's Creek slipped in and she'd be in TV heaven...

and then it was Tuesday, which makes this date accurate even though this is being uploaded a few days late and after the previous entry which is dated tomorrow, according to the calendar... yeah, time is weird)...

the fantasy baseball bug bit Rasputin again... it appears that I have developed an immunity to the fantasy sports bug, since I barely pay any attention to any of the teams in the basketball leagues this year (surprisingly, I am still competitive in one league simply because the team I drafted is scoring well even without making any substitutions)... on the other hand, Rasputin seems to be increasingly succeptible to the call of the draft as he impulsively lept into another fantasy baseball league before I got home from work today... with coaxing, I was suddenly in another league myself and before I knew it, it was the afternoon and I still was awake (working night shift, i try to sleep in the morning so I can be awake in the evening for some sort of life)...

and then the phone rings and surprise, surprise, it is Minnie and her new fancy, or fiance and they are in town (from Chattanooga) and can I meet them for dinner tonight... sure, who needs more than a few hours sleep anyway... they want to go to the Rainforest Cafe, which is about fifty minutes away (and expensive) and guess who, like a good adopted daddy, is gonna treat?... yup, poor little ol' me...

and so I decide to shower and hit the bed for a few hours sleep and just as I am nodding off, there's the phone... Precious needs a ride home... I go wake Rasputin (somehow calling me seemed like a better idea to her than calling her dad... do I have soft touch written on my forehead or something?)... I figured since he kept me awake all day, he can lose the sleep this time... meanwhile, I realized I had less than two hours before I had to leave and felt semi-wired cuz I was excited to see Minnie (it's been a half a year or so, at least)...

it was about a year and a half ago that I drove up to Chattanooga to give her away at her wedding to her long time (since their teens) boyfriend... alas, that did not last long... he got the dog, she got the new boyfriend, and her brother got the apartment (her brother has a way of moving in and taking over spaces and he did it again when he moved up there to stay with her for a little while)...

so anyway, back down here... I did not get to sleep at all... I think I may have written an email, or part of an email, and I know I copied a few more CDs... and mostly Precious told me about her day (after she got home and Raspy went back to bed)... and then I drove out to Disney (the restaurant is on Disney property... it really is a world unto itself) for dinner...

dinner was great, expensive, but great... and I broke the vegetarian pattern with some of the best ribs I've had in a long time... my taste buds love barbecued anything... so for the first time in at least two weeks, maybe longer, I ate meat... ribs... very excellent ribs, if you like ribs... my taste buds like ribs... it was a horrible divergence from the rather light vegetarian fare I'd gotten this body quite content with and the body was rather puzzled by the change... not to mention lack of sleep...

but still, wonderful...

somehow, after not being on Disney property for months, at least, I found myself wondering through the Disney marketplace for the second time in almost as many (or few) days... sleep-walking, was more like it, but still... memories, may be beautiful and yet... la la la... I'd have cried if I was awake enough to realize how many memories deserve much more reverence and reminiscing than I give them (and more, how much I miss a few people in this life who somehow drifted out of touch)... and then, how much I miss sharing and you know the old song and soft shoe I dance to that tune by now (you know, that is, if you're not new to this reading place)...

yeah, sigh...

eventually I got to work and somehow made it through the night with the help of Berry who mocked me as only she can to help me stay awake... and then, tomorrow...
