I hate when I’m taking the garbage down to the garage right when the neighbor is pulling up to his garage.

Like I don’t have enough guilt and shame to deal with in life.

Oh man. I totally wait for the neighbours to clear out before I go outside. They’re nice people, but who needs the stress?

tcr! tcr! · Feb 19, 2018 at 6:46 pm

Totally! I think they’re watching my movements, learned my traffic patterns, etc.

I shallwould start taking the trash out in the morning to disrupt their sensors.

keamoose keamoose · Feb 19, 2018 at 6:53 pm

For a moment I thought you said that you were going to stop taking the trash out, and I was concerned.

tcr! tcr! · Feb 19, 2018 at 7:19 pm

I would if I could but I shan’t. I would like one of those bank tubes that suck my checks up and over to the tellers but for my garbage bags. Just a shoot shute that whisks it away like the trash it is.

keamoose keamoose · Feb 19, 2018 at 8:11 pm

Wow, up here we just hand the cheque to the teller. Like an animal. Also, we spell it cheque… Like, I guess, a British animal.

Bonus trivia since I’m already talking about spelling: the word “teller” comes from a Norse word for counting!

tcr! tcr! · Feb 19, 2018 at 9:01 pm

We’re too lazy down round these parts. We like to sit in our cars and avoid physical contact with the Norwegian counters. I would like to use the British animal cheque spelling though. I would pronounce it “le cheque” though. Because I’m fancy.

Wait is Norwegian the right descriptor for Norse?

keamoose keamoose · Feb 19, 2018 at 9:31 pm

Really, I prefer to deposit cheques by taking a photo on my phone and not even leaving the house.

I meant Old Norse, the precursor to Norwegian, Swedish, and Danish. English inherited a few words from the ol’ Vikings. 😊

tcr! tcr! · Feb 23, 2018 at 8:54 am

I used to deposit my checks via my bank’s app, too. And then they went top-secret complicated to even sign-in to the app and now I’m forced to use the vacuum tubes. Although, I do kinda enjoy the satisfaction that comes from watching analog hi-tech in action.

I started watching the Viking series not long ago. It was pretty good but I felt like it was competing for space in my head with Game of Thrones.

Porkchop Express by John Carpenter

Peeps, I’ve been on a John Carpenter kick during working hours. I’m really needing to go see him live before he croaks. Seriously, Big Trouble in Little China clips in the background… πŸ’ͺ

Cosmos: here’s what you should do

tcr! · Feb 19, 2018 at 9:07 am

Last night Waterline Writers was hosting their Feb 18th reading event. My plan was to go and do the Open Mic thing after listening to the main authors do their thing. I picked out a couple of pieces to read and as I was reviewing, practicing, preparing my sermon it didn’t feel right.

It’s not that I didn’t feel confident in my material or anything but what I’d picked out were better reading pieces and not speaking pieces. And then I knew I’d be nervous, too. I still get nervous before I speak at 12-step meetings and I know all of them people. Plus, I can yap all day long about recovery once I get started.

As I laid in bed with my printouts I knew I could power through an Open Mic, though. It’d be awkward and not my best performance but whatever. I don’t want to eat the same caterpillar leaves I always have. It’s important to put myself out there. Out in the real world and not just out on Facebook or the other online social clubs.

But still, some little part of me wasn’t “all in” like I am or can be in life. Sometimes I just “know” what I’m supposed to do and then other times I don’t. I run back and forth between opposing sides of the teeter totter because I’m not sold on which seat I’ve currently settled on.

Sometimes I’ll struggle with the a- is this just not a good idea or b- is my anxiety standing in the way.

And then the cosmos pointed out which teeter was the better totter.

Conversation with Sara Re Waterline Writers

I used to go to three meetings a week. And then it went down to two for sure. And then I started to loose track.

Before last night I couldn’t remember the last meeting I went to. That’s never a good sign.

So to wrap this up: I’ll never go wrong doing for others when me myself am not sure what to do.

“Sometimes I’ll struggle with the a- is this just not a good idea or b- is my anxiety standing in the way.” 100% understand this. And then there’s the times where it’s b, and there’s the second part of the question, “is it really necessary/important/helpful to push past it, or can I let this one go?”

tcr! tcr! · Feb 19, 2018 at 11:14 am

Yep, there’s sometimes another set of teeter-totters when I get to the end of the first totter. If that makes sense.

I went to the first open mic I’ve been to in years yesterday afternoon. I didn’t read, but I had the best time I’ve had in years. I will definitely read at the next one. I’ve got some favorite pieces of mine but I really need to start bleating again.
Doggies of goodness!

tcr! tcr! · Feb 19, 2018 at 1:25 pm

What kind of open mic was it?

It took me 2+ hours to lay these two pages out for the upcoming issue.

Thank god for Sunday afternoon coffee and Parov Stelar’s electric swing.

This morning as we’re watching Wyatt and Gary create Lisa by ‘hooking electrodes to a doll and hacking into a government computer system for more power’ Maggie says, “you can’t do that with an 80s computer. I can’t watch this.”

I can’t get enough of snow on trees. The oak in particular.

It’s about the only good thing of winter.

You’re welcome! We have no shortage of snow on trees up here. That’s tism featured in the last pic.

Is all this within walking distance from you guys’ place?

keamoose keamoose · Feb 22, 2018 at 8:05 am

Yeah, this is all within about a 1 minute walk. The last one was taken on the way home from work.

tcr! tcr! · Feb 22, 2018 at 9:02 am

A glorious wilderness indeed! I especially like the dark navy blue sky in that last one. It’s almost a fairy tale to Narnia with the wooded path and all.

keamoose keamoose · Feb 22, 2018 at 9:32 am

I have been known to refer to it as the magic forest.

Sara​​ and I have been watching Fences and I had to take a break. I told her that I feel like Denzel has been yelling at me for the last two hours.

To spoil the spiritual message for all of you, Fences is about unwarranted forgiveness.
