I was gonna go out and do yard work. But the next door neighbor is out doing yard work. I can’t deal with that kind of social pressure.

Well, there’s one on each side. The west one will come over to the fence and wait for me to join him in conversation. The east continues to mow in her floppy hat, but judges me with a side eye the whole time.

Reflecting deeply on experiences

tcr! · Sep 17, 2020 at 7:17 pm

Reflecting deeply on experiences - MP4

Yesterday I was reading in a book the therapist recommended that certain types of people have a preference for reflecting deeply on experiences and that reflection is almost more valuable than the original experience.

And as I was reviewing this today I thought to myself “Yes! I enjoy doing certain things just so I can think about them later.“

I need to get better about the whole recycling the grocery bags thing. At one point I had like almost ten grocery bags filed with even more compressed groceries bags. They compressed well enough inside of their parent grocery bags but then I felt like some 70s Beverly Hills vagrant wandering into Super Target to recycle them, with the naive hope of getting 2 cents for each crumpled, crunchy bag. They fell on the floor in said Target and then I kicked them outta people’s way like a soccer buffoon. In short, everything’s terrible.

the best thing for the environment is to steal a shopping cart and take your groceries home in it without any bags

tcr! tcr! · Aug 27, 2020 at 9:33 am

WOAH. Pure genius

chambers · Aug 27, 2020 at 9:34 am

the grocery store corporate machines get mad when you do this because they’re invested in big grocery bag.

chambers · Aug 27, 2020 at 9:35 am

nothing to do with the theft, they’re just losing profits from the creation of more plastic bags.

Having a party of one

tcr! · Aug 18, 2020 at 12:20 pm

Audio (MP3): 20200818 - Having a party of one

Video (MP4): 20200818 - Having a party of one

20200818 Having a party of one

Not long ago I was in the 7-Eleven in Geneva. There was maybe three other people waiting to pay. One of the guys was five-ish years younger than me and barely-stand-up drunk. He was having a party of one, talking to himself, and talking to the other people even if they were doing their best to: not encourage him. To ignore him. And wait out his staggering around non-sense. Like when you tough out a deep cleaning at the dentist.

7-Eleven had their ambient classic rock playing over the ceiling speakers and the drunk dude turned around and asked the guy in front of me, “Who sings this song? Damn, this is good. I can’t remember what they’re called.” The second guy is like, “I don’t know who sings it” in all out pretty much disgust with drunk dude.

The final, final last webinar call

tcr! · Mar 31, 2020 at 8:58 pm

I’ve been doing a lot of video conferences since the shelter-in-place put me along the working at home.

You can really get a feel for people by watching how quickly they exit the meeting. People like Jeffrey bail the second it’s over. I assume he does the same in real life, up from the table and out the door the very second the last slide is finished. Others like Marcy politely express their extended gratitude for the opportunity. But most of the attendees simply vanish, mixed in with the herd of the others.

So in the spirit of keeping things awkward I found it enjoyable to stay on video conferences even after the presentation and/or discussion ends.

Like everybody says their thank yous and their goodbyes and then I just stay on the line. Watching the attendees drop off two by two, one by one. Typically the host the ends the meeting and I’m forcibly kicked off.

I wonder how many people notice that I’m just chilling there in the participants sidebar until the end days. Until the final, final last webinar call. Until my connection is silently terminated.

I wonder more if the host (or other random straggler like Kelly) thinks maybe I forgot to log off, or if I wanted to have a few more minutes of their time. Maybe to talk about how rude Jan was. Or maybe because I had something personal on my mind and needed to confide in someone. In anyone.

Some day I’m going to get the courage to blurt out “hello?” when it’s just me and another last caller.

And then make a hasty exit of course. 👍

I was hosting a call today and people just kept hanging out. I didn’t want to shut down the meeting but I also really wanted to leave. It’s like the awkward last party guest.

Except for the Ripple

tcr! · Nov 15, 2019 at 12:10 pm

I always felt kinda ashamed of myself when I went into the liquor store before noon. But after sitting across the street from one for the last month and a half, I don’t anymore. All kinds of folk in and out of there all day long.

In other news, in another era I drank way too much of all of these except for the Ripple.

I’ve bought and drank MD in the morning. In a major chain grocery store full of mostly women buying their grocs. I was feeling all right and made the cashier chuckle. She got ready to swipe the 2nd bottle in a kind of cavalier manner and I said, “Careful! Don’t bruise those grapes!” She actually laughed out loud.

One of the worst days of my life started out with two bottles of Orange Jubilee around 10AM. The rest of that story will never be fit for print.
