I haven’t been on the train for five minutes and the guy next to me after taking a drink of his coffee whispered satisfying to himself, “Oh Jesus.”

I’m going to throw his traveling coffee mug out the window. He keeps screwing the lid on and off, all the way up and all the way down. I can hear the rubber seals straining each time he needs a drink. Apparently the overly complicated lid with its pulleys, levers, and hinges is too much for one man.

He just pulled out a Tupperware with six hard boiled eggs. I’ll wager he pounds all six down — he *is* wearing sunglasses after all.

It didn’t get really bad until he took off his shoes and then asked the train conductor how fast we were going.

I KNOW him! Did the pharts have a significant malty nose? Dirty laundry, tobacco smoke, too many pets with too little square footage and a yeast infection. Am I right? Cleetus. Cleetus Johnson. And the eggs were brown.

Some great epiphany

tcr! · Jun 17, 2017 at 9:01 am

Vader silhouette

I used to rely on “forever.” Rely on it so much that I didn’t appreciate what was right in front of me. When I think this or that, people or things, or whatever are always going to be there, that life will always be like this… I take it all for granted.

But really for the “rest of my life” I got nothing.. I don’t have anything forever.

So right here, in this very moment, I do my best to remember that I only have this person for “now” and I want to be the best me I can be when I’m with them. Okay, I’m not so spiritual to savor every single moment with ever single friend. It’s more like these chapters, these eras of life — they’re not permanent so I better be here. This era of Maggie being 11, that’s going to go away. She’ll be off to her teenager era soon and I’ll see her less than I already do.

It’s also not that I think people are gonna fall off a cliff or something. A more likely scenario is that we’ll just have different shit going. I’ll be busy, you’ll be busy, and then we won’t see each other anymore. Days will go by, or weeks, and our schedules won’t sync up and then a year later I’ll think of you out of the blue, a heart string will tug with “I miss that guy” or “she was really fun.”

People move on and go their separate ways because that’s what happens. I have a pocket full of friends who I haven’t seen or talked to in eons and then I look them up on Facebook and they’re getting on with their lives, same as me.

So wanna know when I realized the importance of “now” ? It wasn’t when or because I had some great epiphany that life’s too short or fast or that I’m getting older or whatever. It was when I realized I’d hurt somebody. After the fact. Somebody that I truly cared about. Making someone cry is good way to have the cosmos snap its fingers at my soul.

Alas, remorse is like a French-horn player in an orchestra: often too late.
—Jeremy Denk, There’s a Skeleton in My Closet, Literally

So there’s that.

Anyways, I make that effort to be a good friend in the here and now simply because I’ve taken too many people for granted and then they left. And then I was really sad because now they’re gone. And generally when people go, they don’t come back. And it’s worse when they’re gone because of something I did, intentionally or not.

Anyways × 2, I don’t have a triumphant climax for this so I’ll borrow somebody else’s.

This morning before the coffee was even ready I was thinking about the movie Scrooged, as I do… Thinking about the ending with Murray’s epiphany.

What are you doing watching television on Christmas Eve?

It’s never too late, peeps. Never too late to say “I’m here, what are we doing?”

Green army trench coat

tcr! · Jun 16, 2017 at 9:26 am

I think it’s time I gave up this army trench coat, that I got decades ago, that I’ve never worn, that I thought was cool.

It does have NATO sizing, though, so I could keep it just in case that ever comes up.

HE JUST NONCHALANTLY CARRIES HIS PIZZAS

Pizza Story (with tweets)

“I’ve never hated anyone in my life except this next guy.”

If you read anything today, let it be this.

This is for me, for tony, for Guatemala.

My dying wish is to utter something such as epic.

Toilet paper hanging over the stall door

Toilet paper hanging over the stall door

Not sure what’s going on here. But okay.

This probably means the stall is out of toilet paper. The paper is both a signal plus extra TP if you really need to go and the other stall is occupied.

Ah… It’s like a white flag of surrender but a “send TP” flag instead. Makes perfect sense.

Mirror In The Bathroom by The English Beat

tcr! · Jun 14, 2017 at 2:51 pm

Peeps, here’s your you-can-watch-yourself-while-you-are-eating Wednesday jam. I was thinking of this song while writing the You won’t feel any better saga. Specifically the line:

Recompense for all my crimes of self defense

I can’t remember where and when I first heard this song but I need to listen to it every six months. And ya, 80s fashion. 80s dancing. Obviously recorded on 80s video tape.

//Set the sequence number

tcr! · Jun 14, 2017 at 1:08 pm

You’ve got to be kidding me.

//Set the sequence number
$squence_number = $values['insert_sequence'];

//If the sequence is less then 10 put a zero in front of the number.
if ($squence_number<10) {$squence_number = "0".$values['insert_sequence'];}

The // indicates that line is a comment and they’re used when the code isn’t self-explanatory or obvious.

Regardless of “how” they’re to be used, developers leave comments for the next guy like this ALL THE TIME.

Let’s document code that’s ridiculously simple and leave code that’s ridiculously complicated undocumented.

Bonus points for → $squence_number ← 😍

I’m not sure if that’s a typo or the developer was trying to be fancy and save space or what.

Regardless × 2, he should be consistent with ['insert_sequence'] because consistency.
