The Dream About People I’ve Not Thought of in Years High School Reunion

Monday, 28 February 2005

I had a dream last night about all the peo­ple I was mere­ly ac­quaint­ed with in high school or the friends I’ve not talked to since high school last night. It is pret­ty ob­vi­ous what trig­gered this, I went through a bunch of my pic­tures yes­ter­day and put a few up for me to look at. So I saw all of their mugs whilst milling through.

Chili TVP

I helped my friend Lauren move to Tremont on Saturday and then fixed a batch of chili for every­one to eat af­ter­ward. It turned out pret­ty good, and though I was a bit leery of us­ing some­thing as strange as TVP, it didn’t roil me gut like to­fu tends to do. Actually it was pret­ty good. Even bet­ter re­heat­ed the next day.

Now that I’ve opened my eyes and start­ed look­ing around, I’m re­al­ly amazed at how much there is to be in­volved in around the Greater Cleveland area. It makes it hard to choose. I’ve gone to a cou­ple blog­ger mee­tups and they have been quite eye-open­ing in re­gard to eco­nom­ic de­vel­op­ment in this area. While I’m still too wet be­hind the ears in re­gard to civic ac­tion and pol­i­tics, their fer­vor is in­fec­tive.

Haiku/​Poetry Contest Planning

Thursday, 24 February 2005

The 4th Annual Organic Mechanic Haiku con­test is ap­proach­ing. I’m try­ing to de­cide whether or not I should keep it strict­ly haiku, change it to a dirty lim­er­ick con­test, or make it a po­et­ry con­test prop­er. What would you like?

From A to Z: Some Family Ties

Wednesday, 23 February 2005

Any broth­er can dream. Ego fra­ter­ni­ty grates his id.
“Just kid­ding!”, laughed my niece, open­ing presents.
Quietly read­ing, sis­ter turned up very well. Xeroxed years zip.

On the way in to work this morn­ing I re­al­ized that the phrase “your name is ‘mud’” ap­plies to me in a a quite re­al sense. My name is mud. I love puns. But that’s not im­por­tant right now. Entropy. It has been on my mind late­ly. So many things are on the old nog­gin and lit­tle bits ap­pear in my oth­er ram­blings un­til I re­al­ize there is a filet mignon cut up in­to all the ham sal­ad of my oth­er posts. Or at least a sir­loin.

Doctor Roulette

People make a big deal about want­i­ng to pick their doc­tor as a part of their health plan. I guess so they can get the per­son they want who will pro­vide the care they want. Ostensibly. I’ve not been to a den­tist in at least five years [since be­fore I got my braces], and it has been at least three since I went to an eye doc­tor. So in that time I’ve moved to Cleveland. And I don’t know jack­shit about any docs around here.
