me, myself, and I


well here we are again, does it get more exciting than this? (oh please tell me it does, a reason for living other than coming online to pour out my every thought or feeling anytime there is time to tap some keys, there must be something more than this... life on other planes of existence, perhaps?... a fine thing for fingers to do, I am sure, but these hands have other uses, don't they?... I've heard about people actually talking to each other with their mouths, just imagine, a world where people communication in other ways... oh what sort of alien life forms might we meet if we ventured beyond the confines of these computer screens... would they be friendly?... more advanced?... who will take my hand and venture forth into the unknown just beyond the cyber universe?... is it even possible?)...

hello number two, what is your name please?

ok, so this is what happens when I get a little sleep and go to work and play cards and have fun (what?... fun at work... don't let that get around or there'll be a memo banning whatever it is we might be doing to stay awake, alert, and happy)... but I should consider sleep... in just over five hours I have to return to work for a meeting... then another four or five hours and I am back at work again for another shift... the perils of working nights when a manager doesn't care to come in a half hour early for a meeting... she's not a morning person, she says... so we are mid-afternoon people?... 2PM for the night shift is the equivalent of just about midnight for the day shift... so how about it all you nine to fivers, how many meetings do you go out and attend at midnight?... and then at 3PM when the meeting is over you head home to turn around and be back at work at nine again, right?... just as sampling of the kind of management we've got...

but I am not sleepy right now (and there wasn't even any slight whine in the thought that might bely some fatigue)... are we bored yet?...

today might be a good day to remember to take the Ethernet card back to the store for an exchange since it is not working and wasn't working right out of the box... and maybe consider... no, another expense is not what I need at the moment, USB cables for the desktop computer will have to wait until Sally pays half the bills I paid this month... ah, sweet poverty, what would I ever do without you... have a lot fewer decisions, or at least more enjoyable decisions, that is for sure...

today would be a good day to get a little sleep too...

sigh...

how can there be so much to do in such a boring life?... I suppose I should wonder why anyone would want to keep me company when I am getting bored with myself, but remember, I've been alone with myself a long time and you haven't... it might take years for you to get bored with me... it certainly didn't happen overnight for me... why, I remember enjoying the heck out of me and being all excited about waking up every day to spend time with myself... we were the best of friends, me, myself, and I...

so what happened?... a little falling out over some misguided romantic investments, perhaps... some disagreable chatter about over-doing theselfless bit and perhaps being a wee bit too altruistic without any sort of back up plan or safety net, I'd say... a few self-destructive decisions that were allowed to lead to a few self-destructive habits, even... but all in all, I love me... myself, well, we might have had our words, but I love myself too... I think I am just indulging myself too much and that may be causing me some grief... group counseling?...

I know, I can look for the rest of my snail mail... I opened much of it this week and found bills (and actually paid some) and mostly junk, but I remember seeing a few envelopes that looked like they contained personal-type letters (you know, the kind that existed and sometimes even flourished before they invented email?) and I put them in a safe place and now I am not sure where that safe place went to (did you ever notice how safe places seem to have minds of their own and move around on you?... maybe that's how they stay safe)... I did the same thing with a library cassette book I think, because I received one of those weird envelopes from the library telling me I am overdue... I returned all the CDs, but forgot I had a couple of books and the audio version of Stephen King's Gunslinger that was to be my re-entry into the Dark Tower series in preparation for the release of books Six, Seven, and Eight in the series coming up this fall... the best laid plans, huh? (or in this case, mis-laid library materials, ha)...

today would not be a good day to stop for dinner or lunch just because I will be out and about in the middle of the day... besides the fact that I just ate fat-free turkey with fat-free ranch on reduced fat Ritz crackers (what can I say, there's no bread in the house and I did not want to find the will power to uncrave some bread)... and the fact that I am trying to drop some weight and will most likely be rather stationary after returning from the meeting because I will try to get a few hours of sleep before heading back to work again tonight... there is the budgetary issue... yes, poverty is everywhere... fun, not...

without sleep, exercise becomes challenging, even dangerous... would somebody please suggest to me that my eyes are getting heavy?... I would appreciate it... and I am speaking for myself... yes, we all agree, sleep would be good now...

we interrupt these seemingly mindless dots for a word from (or at least about our sponsor (hmmm, sponsor?... what's the opposite of sponsor?)... anyway, now, as ado-less as possible, the word for you or andrew)...
