long and winding recovery disk


ok, where were we?... try to reconstruct a genius entry? (yeah sure, that's easy to say now that there's no evidence to prove anything even was coherent)... I woke to a start, a dream almost pounding my heart, then I had to fart...

actually, the dream was rather incongruous, or at least not of this world... maybe my alien genes clicked on for a moment... that's what happens when rather incompatible images and events come together in the split seconds of dream-time... there I was saving children running from their beds diving into a shallow pool while simultaneously debating the philosophies of humanity, control, and freedom with some narrow minded boss while playing some odd card game with Einstein, Edgar Allen Poe, Shakespeare, Cleopatra, Robin Williams, Osama Bin Laden, Socrates, Ceasar, and a few others and observing all this over cocktails with Jesus and his parents, Hitler, Homer (Simpson and the Greek), Harry Chapin, Machiavelli, Ghandi, Wacko, Yacko, Dot, and a few others who's name tags simply read God while running a marathon in the nude and sharing euphoric passion with several libido fantasy people, when I almost fell out of bed...

all through the dream I was glancing around for the one, mumbling something about the lack of women in writers and historic figures in the brief history of mankind... remember, this was a recounting of a recap of a rather foggy memory of a dream, after all...

so I came out to sit at the computer a while and check on the status of my library materials... the library computer is down, great, so the pattern continues... I usually forget to check again and a week or few go by and I donate another $20+ to the public library system... patron of the arts that I am, this is ok, except when I realize that I really could use the money for something else, like survival... I make a mental note to check again later, hoping that the intra-cranial post-it doesn't not get lost in the chaos of my mind...

and then Rasputin came out of his room asking about power for apparently his power went off twice in the past hour and he seemed rather disgruntled about it... I was no help, not having any information because I was not noticing the power in the place during my dream and this laptop has a battery so it showed no sign of power going off... he added another empty Diet Pepsi bottle to the other two on the kitchen counter (I guess there's just no keeping it clean and uncluttered while living with him, though Precious did, with some coaxing, take out three of the bags of garbage I filled when I cleared the counters and emptied trash yesterday and she wiped a spot or two, missing most of the meat grease)... but I am more concerned about his caffeine addiction as he put away more than 64 ounces of Diet Pepsi in the last 18 hours and this was a night off for him... he did not seem in the right frame of mind for my health related comments to have any positive effect, so I just nodded and smiled and said hope it doesn't turn off again and he went back to his room...

I did send him here (I even did one of those about caffeine and chocolate once, but I am not sure where the link is... I think it's in the old journals) a couple of times over the past few years and again recently and he said he read it all including the links and now his daughter is here and I pointed out that she seems to drink almost as much regular Pepsi as he drinks Diet... he nodded and smiled and went back to his room... so I went to a garden party...

and then the dang computer decided to open a link I clicked on in this window and clicking back showed me what I knew would be here, nothing, an empty white box where a whole long profound meaningful lottery-winning entry once was... and the answer, my friend, like that lottery ticket, blew away in the wind once again... and I ever so eloquently vented my frustration in the previous entry, followed by some browsing distraction that lead to memories (and memories and before and later blips, queries, vital information and other odd ends stored in the corners of the drawers in my mind (among random blasts from the journals past and others... then I came here and did this mock up job of accessing the long and winding recovery disk in my head and summarizing the genius that was lost in whatever was that other entry that shall never be, probably...

and now, the rest of the crew around here is awake, frying up bacon (splatter) and eggs (at least the frying pan that's been sitting on the stove since last weekend full of steak grease was cleanish for a few seconds), with Pepsi, of course... breakfast of Americans... I did tell Raspy that I loved him and wished he'd consider cutting back his Diet Pepsi intake to less than two gallons a day, he took it well and I can feel I did what I could to save his life... the TV is on, Small Soldiers (could have sworn this was watched yesterday), and when the kitchen is empty I just might close my eyes and stick something in the microwave...

so whatcha doing today?...
