One Week

Hey y'all

I was hoping to start this off with a "Cub's WIN!", but they didn't....damn. On the other hand, I just put in a new Dave Matthews Band album, Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King, and so far it's pretty damn good. Today I was able to sleep in, and that was nice. But once I took the covers off, and put my feet on the cold floor, the celebration of no alarm clock abruptly ended. I felt a quick shiver course through me, and reality struck again. That's right, still no carpeting. I've been living here for a full week now, and I still feel like nothing more than an extended stay guest. I'd really like to know when the carpet guys are going to show up! I have no place of my own at the moment. My bedroom has nothing more than a bed in it, and for several years now I have not spent any time in my bedroom for anything but sleeping. I am not feeling content. I need my own space to dwell. But until the carpeting is installed downstairs, I've got no such place. It's damn near impossible to make one's self comfortable in the main living room for that matter. I have patience to spread around, but at the moment it seems to be running quite thin.

I have the house to myself at this moment. The other two are out attending a Beatles concert. Okay, a cover band, not the ghosts of the real band. I found out about this event last night. I told Brent that I was planning to get all the fixings for a revival of my grill, and he told me that they wouldn't be home because of said concert. Go figure. So my poor grill has yet to be fired up.

Knowing I wouldn't be cooking today, I set off to do some other things. I took a large garbage bag containing the carpeting from the basement stairs to the dumpster at my work. Then I headed to Goodwill, to donate some clothes, and buy a couple of things. Among which is a Star Trek pinball game. I haven't played it yet, and I'm not sure I'm going to tonight. I have had a dull headache roaming around my head all day, okay more like all week. Again I ask, when are the carpet people showing up???! After departing Goodwill I headed to a contractor store, to try and find something to protect a couple of structures in the basement, but I was unable to find anything suitable. So the search goes on. Having no luck at that store, I crossed the expanse of the parking lot to a book store. It was there that I got the tunes I'm listening to now. I wanted to get the latest Dresden File's book, but they wanted $26 for it, and although I had the money, I decided to wait for it to come out in paper back. After leaving that store I headed back here. As predicted, the house was empty of other life (except for Marley that is). So I cleared off a small portion of the couch and caught the rest of the Cubs game on the boob tube. I think I'm gonna go face the cold now, take a shower and read a few pages, and then get some sleep. I tried finding a space heater today as well, but it seems that they have all been pulled from the shelves in favor of fans and air conditioners. Oh well. Maybe tomorrow I'll find one. For now I bid you all adieu. I hope everyone is having a good weekend, and that the good music flows and laughter ensues!

Peace out y'all!

And to think I was wearing a Cubs shirt, a Cubs hat and my Cubs shoes. Oh, well. I still love ya, Cubbies!

Star Trek pinball? WICKED!

punkati: That's weird, I didn't know Ati was into punk. Well, you learn something new every day.

Hope the carpet arrives soon! And that your grill will forgive you for not reviving it yet and gets lots of use from here on!

Merlin came to live at my house yesterday. (I'll let you stew on that one for awhile, any maybe I'll get a call from my favorite son!)

MOTORRE - a place where you can go to dit around in a smokey room listening to music - in your car.
