corto...wake up!

Cold... gray... rain... lots of rain.
Late... oh yeah, woke up plenty late... climbed back in bed just to spite the clock. Had a dream about work... except serraph was there... she walked in pushing a bright yellow thing with her name on it... talking about her brother...
Woke up again... 8:11. um... Geo’s bus comes at 8:15... yup, I’m late.

~ black ftls
~ beige p-z jeans
~ white company T
~ p-z long sleeve (my coworkers say the red sleeves look like I just walked down a freshly painted, red, narrow corridor)
~ eventually getting to work... it's 9:17, and I'm stuck in some killer traffic tie up, typing one handed, waiting to inch up on whatever the hang up is... (oh I see fire trucks now... oyi it's bad)
[flash forward 30 minutes]
~ god. As our cars inched past, nothing could compete for eye time with the car seats (baby) broken and laying beside the crunched car that had firemen hanging out of four doors... I am completely deflated. I know it’s nothing I can do anything about but I couldn’t "not see" the seats... it just kills me to have to process the neurons that run the range of possibilities... I want to hug my kids right fucking now... shit.
~ another day of really goofy volumes of work ... still writing proposals, documenting the stress client and trying to solve an internal problem with the "BorgCube" (a solaris box)
~ oh, and the cam thing... so yesterday it would have helped if I put a link to my actual cam versus a broken link... (slaps forehead)
~ I could fix something with a "lost lj friend"... not sure if I can, but I’m feeling like it’s worth a shot.
~ I had a coffee... um... wait... I’ll be right back.
~ ok, I have a coffee now... I even have some deep fried fat... er, I mean, a donut.
~ to send out some nice warm vibes to my friend movingforward... just ‘cause.
~ that my universe unfolds in such a way that I will, someday, meet stephiechai... of course that would also mean I get to travel around to the other side of the planet... yeah. :D
~ that all is well and safe with my friend ly... who in my thoughts daily.

Before the big bummer on the highway... I was singing along with Tom Petty in the car... doing the most horrific nasal voice thing... it was fun.

Ok... I’ve a tonne (that’s the Canadian "ton" btw) to get done today... so see ya muchachos et muchachas...

drank coffee...
.... wrong tube...
... shot out my nose
... started coughing...
basically ... it's disgusting.


all better now.

(exciting huh...)


Homeward bound...

I'm thinking I need something forcefully descriptive then "wrapped and slapped" to describe the very very hardest days...

Fortunately, today included the blooming of two individual flowers in the garden of me.
One is precious in the way that the bloom takes me back to summer.... blossoms everywhere.
The other is special because it carries with it the promise of a new summer.

So no matter how I slice it... today has been a good day.
I'm happy.

I hope you are happy too.

see ya.
