He was born with a gift of laughter and a sure sense the world was mad.
One of the blast from the past callers.
1.4 million per day is being spent by the industry to lobby Congress against a public option for healthcare. Hmmm...........what do you think will happen?
What's up with people who put you on their friends list on facebook that have no idea who you are? Why is it so important to have a kazillion 'friends' that you have no kind of connection to. In the case of having me as an unknown 'friend', the other person is very likely to get offended and upset at some point. I just did it again yesterday. If they knew me, they wouldn't be surprised or upset. I didn't ask them to be my 'friend'.
I have had two experiences in a week's time of people from the past contacting me out of the blue. One was amazing enough, but two? It leaves a person feeling a little off balance. An oft stated idea that things happen in threes is playing through my head.
My burst of energy in the early summer has, well, burst. I am filled with ennui, a lethargy I don't seem to be able to escape. I could blame it on heat and humidity, but it hasn't been too bad the last couple of days. But still I remain inactive. This is not a way to live a life.
I'm currently listening to business news. It leads me back to the thought that when we went to being an economy based on consumption (70% of our economy is consumer based), we sealed our fate. Too bad some of the money tossed at Wall Street didn't go toward getting those idle factories operating again.
Mark has been gone a lot this summer: vacation with his large family at Myrtle Beach SC, as well as business trips. I miss Atlas. I never gave a thought to being alone with him around. I don't want another dog though, so I will have to get used to the fact.
When I first met Kristina, she was so somber. She never smiled, much less laughed. Odd, because now she laughs a lot, mostly at me! She finds me unusual and I suppose I am. She has told me she looks forward to reaching the age where she can be a walking contradiction and get away with it. Somehow, I can't picture Kristina ever becoming a strange little semi-reclusive crazy person. Kristina has a great laugh and I'm pleased I have given her reason to use it.
I'm late today and my work is waiting, from the sound of them, not so patiently. It's supposed to storm today, so the equines will remain inside. My horses are treated as semi-delicate flowers where weather is concerned. I don't like them out in storms. Of course, because I'm leaving them in the storm will pass right over us.
