recycling babble entry


cuz i woke early (and have extra awake time) thanks to wet dreams (who said tmi?... you're obviously in the wrong place, narf) and am on a pizza stuffed roll since yesterday and love the babbling and was lead back in time by an anonymous comment and am celebrating comments (which is part of the stuffing babbling uploading celebration, of course), i decided to present the comment conversation (which inspired some irreverent babbling, which, egocentrically, might be why i decided to recycle it here and i wonder if i alread did that here way back some other time or somewhere else, for that matter, but that doesn't matter here nor there cuz we're here now and i'm enjoying it and hope you are too) and entry that started it right here for you today as if it has merit and worth and poignancy for us here today (maybe it does, aye?)...

so we set the wayback machine to early 2008 and we find the following comments left for the entry that follows the following comments following the entry that follows the following comments:

hi :)

it's nice to return here to the comfort of a babble of daily life, sort of like being reminded that in all there is to make things complicated there is also a lot to just wrap up in and be, and remembering how there can be no better time spent than lying in the grass and staring up at the clouds and having the warm sun on your face and having time stop and knowing that there isn't anything really so very complicated when you are in the clouds and in the grass and feeling warm and safe and relaxed and just you.

Anyway, my ear hurts and itches, and both ears won't pop and are giving me vertigo which I have all the time now and all of the other stuff that can immerse me in my own self pity is also there as it always is and yet at the same time there is always the grass, and the clouds, and the sun, and the ducks in the swimming pool, and the memories, and the hopes, and giggling, and also, there is glee :)

Hey, I just randomly got that same text and I googled it to see if it was spam (at first I was terrified my number had somehow ended up on like a prositute website). Anyway, it was that identical quote except it said the email was mcconnell at mars-tm dot com and then it linked me to carissa dot everdayintheend dot com with the same 36245 id or whatever. I bet they sent it from a website where you can send texts for free and can either choose to type an email address (regardless of if it's real) or even put annonymous... Anyway, just wanted to thank you for giving me some piece of mind and help you confirm it was indeed spam :)

j - ears hurt big time ouch when they hurt, i hope yours feels better real soon... and you don't fall over too often... take a tip from the Weebles :)

take care of you and thank you so much for saying just what the voices in my head want to hear once again... you are so good at that, i am getting quite spoiled :)

anon - i suppose it was only a matter of time before text message spam (or spim, as it is known in the current cutting edge slang) became commonplace... since it potentially could cost people money, like phone solicitations, the phone companies are going to have to come up with ways to curb it like the no call list... the ebb and flow of technology may never end, or we just might destroy ourselves, whichever comes first...

cynicism amuses me when i don't take it too seriously :)

i can be at the rosen shingle creek resort where the conference is, but then they might not pay for my car, so what do you say?

pick another hotel for me that's convenient for you then, but not incredibly complicated for me to get to conference grounds either.

i can be there the weekend before or the weekend after. so please advise: apr 4* - 10 or apr 6* - 13.

*:evening

PS: If we can't do stuff, I won't stay weekends. Also, prepare to move in with me, I'll have two queens and we need to figure out once and for all if we can get married :)

ah, much like bubble blowing children, life is strange (moody blues) and people too (doors),and i suppose the subtleties of language and nuance and inflection and facial expressions would help in understanding, but forge ahead anyway and let the bubbles land where they may...

a - it happens all the time :)

no really, it happens all the time even when people pay no attention or do not notice... everything is connected much more than we are aware, even in chaos, bumps bump other bumps and the infinite collective chain reactions keep going and going and...

and we just paint the bulls-eyes around where the arrows land and feel special...

it's quite magical, really :)

q - me and the bunny have a deal, i don't get famous and the bunny doesn't steal my chocolate... we both like it that way cuz we are both irreverent and faux-random like that... and we want to believe the truth is out there... mulder would understand...

z - and the excitement continues to build... do i need a truss?...

we can do stuff... what stuff do you want to do?...

so wait, you are at the convention center rosen shingle creek?... but no car?... i can pick up and drop off and drive everywhere, but a nice ferrari would be cool to zip around in too :)

and i know how you love to drive fancy sports cars too :)

seriously, if i take the week off and you can stand being a passenger for a week in an old chevy cavalier, you don't need a car... but if you insist on getting your lamborghini reventn (i still prefer ferrari), there are lots of hotels in that area higher and lower priced - but i don't know enough about them to make a recommendation...

of course being sensible, we can get a corvette convertible for about $1500 a week :)

serious?... ok, convenience makes the rosen your best bet...

and if you really want a car and don't care what you drive, weekly rentals (economy) can be had for are about $150 a week around here for april (add $13 a day if you want their rental insurance)... maybe cheaper if i shop around...

we shall use our vocal chords to continue the conversation about places and transports and such bizness stuff...

so it's sunday to sunday (6-13) or friday to thursday (4-10)?... do we need to look at the calendar again? :)

my only definite plans so far are softball games (two hours on sunday afternoons and you are welcome and we can do stuff before and after depending on your flight time in you leave on a sunday... i'm good for picking up sunday evenings) and Rent (the musical) in Lakeland the evening of the 9th - you can come if it fits into your convention schedule)

so i can see about taking the week off and going on vacation in my home town, aye?...

but i always wanted a couple of Presidential Suites and the Concierge Lounge with the spa package and everything for my wedding...

where's my phone?

excuse me... i'm just here because google-blogger will not let me sign in with my blogger account on the main blogger sign in page because i have a google account and it demands my google account information, but then will not find my blogs from that account... i've merged more than once, it doesn't work... probably because i've had accounts with blogger and google for too long, way before google bought blogger, and they just don't have their account associations going back that far... i've heard horror stories about bloggers losing their blogs when trying to merge them too many times, so i just leave it alone and settle for the crap service i'm used to in this modern computer age...

all that to say, i am just here to sign in because for some odd reason, google allows a blogger to sign in on a comment page with a blogger account...

idjits...

google, not you... meanwhile, the previous comment is there for your perusal and response, as you see fit... and this one should just be ignored as it was not meant to be but only appeared because i had to shut down and reboot because apple demanded i upgrade itunes and, well, you can see the next entry for the rest of that story...

party on, people :)

I found this site using [url=http://google.com]google.com[/url] And i want to thank you for your work. You have done really very good site. Great work, great site! Thank you!

Sorry for offtopic

2:23 AM

candoor said...

just like it was yesterday and, please note, there is no offtopic in my world... everything's connected somehow and if the connections, are not obvious, i'll find a way to bridge them if requested or if i am in the mood or something to that effect...

like the kids screaming outside my window for no apparent reason other than to exercise their vocal cords and garden some attention from someone... human kids are really weird, but big humans are a whole lot weirder, they just try to hide it more as they grow...

i really am an alien in my mind, which might mean i am actually an alien and i admit it like this to dissuade anyone from actually believing i am an alien so they won't get scared and violent cuz one of my goals in life is not to be dissected before this body dies...

google brings a lot of people here, but rarely do they comment... this happens to be an entry where there've been more than a few comments, yay, at a time when i was writing more daily and keeping in touch a whole lot better... my curiosity wonders what search terms bring you (or anyone) to this place (in general and to specific pages) cuz i am fascinated by the random connections the internet affords...

i miss the old friends who were commenting back now (at the time of this blog entry, not at the time of this comment, cuz time is relative, after all) and some are still listed in the blog family section on the right, but some are gone from their sites or gone from the web even and some are listed below on the right in the suddenly defunkt section but the links on the right have not been updated in more than a year and i haven't had time to explore them in some time (like the links on my diary and come to think of it you, or someone like you (an anonymous commenter) got me thinking about the online babbling i've done over the years and this happened, i mean, cuz i name drop from time to time and i am narcissic enough to drop my own) so who knows what's working these days...

anyway, these were the days of the comment conversations and much more babbling and perhaps, much more creativity (cuz rhymes were a daily way of life for the writer in my head and i didn't even link those except for the main crossroads links to almost everything which also has not been updated in a long time cuz i have not had the time)...

as you see, it does not take much to get me to pondering and babbling on about just about anything and i love it when my mind and fingers work together to present some literary poop cuz i am that easily amused, so thank you for the words and i hope your day is fun too :)

narf :)

12:15 PM


and all that (i know, not really a lot of comments considering some of my favorite bloggers and many others i never read have hundreds of comments to every post they upload no matter what they put in the post and i wonder how much of that is habit and how much is an actual reflection of the quality or substance or meaning or value or anything to do with the actual post itself, which is why i take the concept of net popularity even less seriously than i take the concept of popularity in general cuz, after all, we're people and people are so easily swayed and amused and fad-following fools (no offence intended cuz, after all, even if i am a real alien, i am a people too (cheesy grin included, ya know)...

anyway, here's the original entry:
