we use strength wisely;

and we can't afford not to....

else it turns on us.



Eh, a tolerable day, I guess.



I was up at 01:00... I had gone to bed at 22:00....



But I took a nap from 08:00 to 10:00... giving me a grand total of five hours of sleep.



I was going to go walking, but it was cool and misty and I'm not really for the shorts-to-jeans shift yet, I… Continue

Color me pink - tickled pink!



But first... the rest of the story from yesterday:



When they were putting the dressings on my puncture sites, I was able to see the clock... 18:00! Where had the time gone?



Drugs... wonderful things in the right hands.



Contrary to what is supposed to… Continue

Interesting day, yes.



I got to sleep about midnight, set the alarm for 06:00; got up at 06:15, at breakfast, did the dishes, waited for the call.



Lynn called about 08:15, I was on for 13:00.



So it was clear liquids for the rest of the time at home, and in fact until about 18:30,… Continue

Nilknarf Daily Haiku

The storms will roll in,

we stand naked before them;

powerless, fearful.




Got to sleep at 02:00 last night, got up at 06:00.



Damned naps. I love 'em!



It was a good day, nonetheless.



I'm going to get my legs fixed tomorrow!



Lynn, the radiologist's nurse, is going to call me at 07:30 to tell me if it's gonna be 10:00 or 13:00, it's most likely to be… Continue

signs and confused minds

three hundred sixty degrees...

just pick the right one.



Damn, it got late fast tonight.



Pretty laid-back day, for one that started at 02:00....



I did get a nap, though, from about 11:00 until 13:00, and now it's late and I'm not sleepy at all.



Well, maybe a little bit....



Watching the storms, the systems are lining up now from Africa to… Continue

Another pleasant day... nice wake-up, gentle sun... nice breakfast, just perfect weather early, although the heat/humidity went up later on....



I'm feeling strange, though, and I don't really know why; just a little disconnect between my mind and reality, and I have to use my intellect to decide which is… Continue

Veracity replete

Common honest truth suppressed

Follow the money.



Really nice day, for various reasons, including the weather.



Lana came over about 18:00, she had been cleaning house today and was tired... we watched Across the Universe and it was excellent... just about every Beatles song that they made, I think.



We started watching Silver Streak but she was too tired to stay for… Continue

in love, the birds sing;

with love, all the wrongs righted...

love is everything.




Nice day, in many ways.



To start off, I got eight straight hours of sleep.



Felt damned good when I got up, except for the bruised places... and I think that I might have a coupla cracked ribs, too.



The price you pay for being stupid, heh.



I really made the right… Continue

Even in summer,

the hints of fall always there...

knowledge of winter.



Not a bad day, and it kept getting better until a little bit ago, when Lana had to leave.



Started at 02:00, though.



And so far, no fainting today... yes, I think that I broke the streak.



I think that the main problem has been that my electrolytes are way off kilter... with a lot less sweating... but I've… Continue

sugar in the blood...

not too much, not too little;

got to be just right.



Well, it's not the BS, so it must be the BP.



I did get some more sleep. about two hours after 08:30.



Had a normal day, didn't go out much; worked and played on the computer.



Lanas' mothers' funeral was today, but I wasn't invited, heh... she hasn't told anyone about me yet, and it would have been… Continue

First, a confession: this was not really written on Tuesday but on Wednesday morning at 04:00.



I did get a good nights' sleep Monday night, like seven hours or so... felt pretty good when I got up at 06:00.



Beautiful day, and I even got out a little bet, went to the store, did a few chores....



Lana got… Continue

by love and understanding...

alone in sorrow.



Dammit, I need to remember to spell-check and edit every fucking entry....



And I forgot to mention in yesterdays' entry that it was Moms' ninty-first birthday. I miss her so much.....



I was awake at 03:00 today, got up at 03:15 and met the day.



Went out the motel that Cleata an Norm were staying at about 06:45... Cleata… Continue

Lanas' mother died last night.



I had never met her.



I really feel for Lana and her family... even though you know it's coming, it's hard, very hard, to say goodbye to a loved one.



My day started at 03:00... I had gone to bed and right to sleep at 22:00 last night.



I tried to sleep for about two hours, but it… Continue

twice the energy

maybe three times, wasted on hate;

but love wastes nothing.



weird night... I went to be about 20:00, being very tired.



Fucking woke up at midnight. Irrevolkably.



We had a nice storm come through from the northwest, kinda unusual; got quite a bit of rain and a little wind, and it lasted for quite a while. Lotsa lightning.



I decided to start the crock pot… Continue

death: fucking unfair,

life: fucking temporary.

In the middle: cool!



Another beautiful day, though a little bit warmer than I like it.



Lana called about 08:15, and I was shrill half-asleep, and hit the wrong button on my phone which was charging on my headboard.



I had steak and eggs for breakfast... Mmmmm, good.



I went to see the psychologist at 11:15 and mt MD at… Continue

What a day... I got some sleep... from 02:00 until 11:45, and it was good.



Lanas' mother is in the hospital... I am so helpless to help her, but I really want to.



She has a lot of family... and that is great.



And I am still here, wanting to help. not knowing any of them, but feeling for all of… Continue

trust, often assumed,

for granted? No, better is....

doing it yourself.



Long night, short sleep.



Finally got to bed at 23:00 the first time, but I was up and down until 022:00.



And then up again until 04:00.



So, start the day, what the hell.



But about 08:30, I thought that maybe I could go to sleep... and I did, and slept until noon.



Lana had similar… Continue

Yes, the sleep will come;

but not when you expect it...

not when you need it.



Dammit, Denver doug has died.



There are many tributes to him online today, and I'll send you to Michael at Bunt Sign, which is the last one that I read.



I don't think that I'll read any more... I don't handle grief that well lately.



Hardly any sleep last night, so this will be short, because I want… Continue

Another day... in which I didn't make anything interesting happen.



The evening was different though... I got to spend it with Lana.



Yeah, I'm pretty much smitten.



Callie has been acting strangely lately... won't jump on my lap for petting, but she still sleeps with me, and wants her scritches. She… Continue

Strangeness will prevail;

dogma, superstition dies...

reality borne.



And yet another beautiful day here in Kansas!



I did not get to sleep until about 05:00 this morning... and I slept hard until noon.



Lana called about 10:00 to let me know that she was going to KC with friends, and I only heard about the last two rings and then went right back to sleep.



It was another day of… Continue
