Friday.

Fuck yeah. And next week I only have to work Monday and Tuesday.

I need a break from this. It hurts my head, there's so little thinking involved.

I feel like today is Friday. It's not Friday but it really feels like it is.

Every time I remind myself it's not Friday, my motivation to do even the smallest tasks just tanks.

It's so close though! I get it... today was suppose to be my hubs day off which meant we could go out and about, however no such luck... not sure when he is going to have one now which means the child and I are stuck in the hotel room still. The only down fall of traveling is it can be boring at times. Of course, it is a small stupid complaint at the end of the day. There are so many worse scenarios for others. I am just being whiny about it. lol.

Your own trials don't have to be compared to the trial of others for them to be significant in your life. I used to travel a lot for work too. If someone traveled with me I usually allowed them to take my rental car for those days so they weren't stuck...

It's odd - a lot of the Dublin side single pot still whiskeys like Jameson for example, wouldn't exist without the financial stability provided to them by the Powers family. Yet so few people in America are familiar with Powers. It has a far more unique and rich palate than Jameson and other regional distills.

My favorite breakfast place is closing permanently next month. Very disappointing. The current owners just took it over about 2 years ago. They seemed to be doing well. Always a little busy in there...

There's a lack of good breakfast places within biking distance from here. My neighborhood is very bike friendly, and walkable. But if there's no place to bike to, there lacks a point to it. Fortunately another cafe just opened within the last year, but they're considerably more expensive and not quite as "family" like.

I figured out what I wanted to do last night.

I wrote a 6 page movie script based on my interpretation of the story told in the song Hotel California.

If you could imagine, it is a story about a vampire society.

Very cool question. Classically, shibari and kinbaku require a partner to receive feedback from. Whether too tight or loose and the like. How the rope texture is preferred to others.

I suppose normally this kink would be practiced better with another. But I still practice knots and ties. Arm restrains and bracelets, some cuffs. I suppose in this manner one could still practice without a partner.

Absolutely. Rope work is as much an art form as it is a kink. A painter doesn't only paint if he/she has a model to pose.

I found out today that a person I have been friends with for 30 years passed away in her sleep Monday night.

Younger than me. Three kids, all about the same ages as my three kids. Just poof. Gone. No warning. At least none that she ever let on outside of her most personal circles.

I just did graduation photos for her daughter, and family portraits for her family a couple summers ago.

She was a wonderful mom. Wonderful person. When we were younger, she was the pot stirrer. Always looking for trouble. The one I couldn't get to quit smoking no matter what I tried.

Story time?

We worked together when we were young. I had my own place (lived with just my widowed grandmother) but I had to be the everything for that household, while balancing full time school, and full time employment. Every Memorial Day I hosted a picnic/party for my friends and co-workers. Had a sand volleyball court with lights - we'd make a bonfire and play until the neighbors called the cops. Dinner, desserts, drinking games, music and friends all being friends.

One year I wasn't planning a party because I had tickets to see a Metallica show about a 60 mile drive away. My friend (who I mentioned above) said I had to have a party. She would host it as long as the party was at my place. I pondered that. I told her, "You have to take care of my grandmother. If she gets angry about anything... hell to pay." My friend agreed.

The day of I got the grill going and had the food prepared. She showed up with the drinks, and a few friends, and I left for the show. By all accounts, it was a party just as I would have had it. I got home close to 1AM, and there were about 10 people left, sitting around the bonfire, listening to music and just hanging out. My friend put together dinner for my grandmother. Everything was cleaned. Leftovers in the fridge. I had no need to worry.

That's the kind of person she always was.

Today is a sad day.

A couple folks said they want to hear the story, so here it goes:

Way back then, I felt like I didn't have very much communication in my life that wasn't business oriented. I ran my own business. Most of my time each day was tied up with making business happen. I had a spouse who didn't talk to me unless she wanted me to do something, or had a complaint, so I was looking for social interaction that could be had a bit passively while running my business.

I found these forums. I forget what the name of them was, but the parent website was broken into dozens upon dozens of forums that you could join. The forums all had their own topics, and individual members could petition the site to open their own forum. Most of them were pretty immature. A few were interesting and I found interesting people in them, but over time I grew to realize that the majority of members were trolls, and shit stirrers. and most of the forums were just places where lonely people went to vent their life problems. The forums had chat areas, which were almost unbearable woe-is-me pissing contests daily.

So someone that I met made the suggestion that I try out this new'ish place, Vampire Rave.

My reaction was... "Vampires? WTF? Are you serious?"

But I scoped it out. Honestly, there was still a pretty good level of woe-is-me pissing contests here, and as you probably know, a number of trolls... but not nearly as bad. I did meet some pretty outstanding people here. A couple right away, and they seemed surprised that I honestly didn't have any ulterior motives beyond just getting to know people, and trying to have intelligent discourse.

And that is what kept me here. The people I met. A small circle of people, that made this interesting. A short time after joining, with my business, I landed a contract that got me doing work all over the United States, so I was able to meet many of those people face to face, and truly get to know them as people, not just members of this site.

And often met them in such unusual ways.

"Hey, just got kicked off my flight and I'm stuck in a city nearby you. Want to grab dinner?"

Shit like that.

Amazing how many people agree. I could have been a crazy serial killer. Or actually a VAMPIRE! And they would just be like, "Shit yeah, let's hang!"

Life is weird, man.

But 17 years later and this account, however infrequently signed into, is still here.
