59 and steady

I hate days when I’m so tired that I feel absolutely nothing. Nothing good. Nothing bad. Just feel a voided disconnection.

And then it’s grey and rainy out and the only thing I want to do is crawl in bed after work and watch John Wick.

It’s not that I don’t want to respond to emails or messages. It’s just that I don’t have the brainpower.

Feeling empty reminds me of when I was drunk at four in the morning in the basement watching Radar Men from the Moon.

I felt nothing.

I hate feeling nothing.

Buying someone a pack of gum isn’t good enough. Even if it’s their favorite.

Also, this is where my mind goes when I’m tired and it’s rainy.

Very well could be. On this particular mat I particularly enjoy the critter hanging up side down particularly on the far right.

Siri doesn’t have an answer

tcr! · Oct 10, 2017 at 10:00 pm

Siri doesnt have an answer

Uh-huh.

My question was prompted by something a “behavioral economist” said on NPR. Something along the lines of…

How will we know when AI becomes conscious? They could be conscious or they could be pretending.

I immediately rejected his question because the moment robots turn on you, you’ll know.

Steel belted tires

Steel belted tires

Well, I suppose I should get new tires now that I can see the steel belts everybody’s always raving about.

Your tires are making me cringe. I’ve never seen a tire that worn, probably because it would literally be impossible to get out of the driveway with them during a Canadian winter.

When it rains while I’m driving, the front end will often sway left and right because it has very little grip. That makes me a little nervous and even more so when I’m going over a bridge.

I live on the edge, though. I don’t even have valid license plates.

keamoose keamoose · Oct 10, 2017 at 1:58 pm

The license plates don’t bother me at all. Stick it to the man. I’m just all about the safety. I think it’s the engineering training.

tcr! tcr! · Oct 10, 2017 at 2:43 pm

I did try to get new tires before I drove for an hour and 45 minutes to the Lake House on Sunday afternoon. And then back on Monday morning. I really did!!

Don’t try this at home.

I drove on a “spare” tiny donut tire an entire Iowa winter. Circa ‘90-‘91. I drove all the tread off of it. People were alarmed. They would see me pull into work again tonight on that little thing and they couldn’t believe it.

This tireless (i know, i’m not so good at these) piece of rubber was mounted on a Mercury Bobcat, the glamourous version of the Ford Pinto. (I hope I got my models right.) I was in love with a girl when I had that kind of machinery. I was IN love with THE girl during this madness. I see kids today that say they can’t do this or that until this or that falls into place and I remember times like this. I was probably just shy of 6 ft tall and weighed a whopping 130 lbs. I had the original Jerry Seinfeld “do” or what I hoped looked like it and I felt like I invented p***y. Just a man and his machine.

Oops…was that out loud? This stream is flooded and raging out of control.

I’m sure I like the music from these days so much because it reminds of all the other good things from those days.

**** said that if the tape played through again she was gonna stop. (!)

tcr! tcr! · Oct 11, 2017 at 1:14 pm

All of this, “yes.” A man and his machine and his love for a girl.

I had a girl named Mary and a Mustang named Black.

Sweet beard trim from Beardsgaard Barbers

Sweet beard trim

Sweet beard trim from Beardsgaard Barbers … you guys should totally go.

Note: I was at home when I took the black and white photo since I have to take at least ten selfies to get the perfect one.

However, the Drunk Octopus photo below was in their shop.

Drunk Octopus

Beardsgaard is just the right kind of quirky, the right kind eclectic for a person like me to feel right at home. Not only feel at home when admiring their stuff but the feeling of, “I want! No, I want that, too. And then that!”

Anyways… Thanks Natalie and Tyler. You guys are great people.

Thankies. Sometimes I have to schedule time to be present with Maggie and I don’t like that. But I do like it when the schedule comes around.

My friends bought a lake house in Delavan, Wisconsin so I spent the night with them last night.

The two photos below were taken yesterday afternoon.
