It Begins Anew

It’s Monday morning and I’m about ready to walk into work. It was a nice weekend, not too hectic, not too boring. I got over the emotional wear and tear of the week pretty fast, and feel very well rested and content. That dream I had last night was so insane I had to stop everything and write about it. I guess my very fiction-oriented mind can create multiple tangents of strange logic and twisted storytelling for me to follow. I’ve had vivid dreams like that before. Sometimes I feel like I glimpse the core of some distant truth in those nightly adventures, but having no way to substantiate my dreams, I tend to just let them go.

I have a positive outlook on my week. I’m in a good frame of mind to (no doubt) be posed new challenges both mental and emotional. Also, I get to go shopping for myself sometime this week, though it’s really only breakfast and lunch stuff I need. I have a massive amount of frozen meat to go through before I’m officially “out” of things to eat. My healthy living log should come in handy when the time comes. Probably after work sometime this week.

I hope you had a nice weekend. I went 2-0 in my fantasy football leagues this week, bumping my work record to 7-1 and pulling myself back up to .500 in the family league at 4-4. I’m currently the 4th seed if the playoffs started today. Next week I might be getting A.J. Green back which would be a huge boost to my potential. And Megatron will be back for weeks 10-17, just in time for the postseason push. I know the World Series is happening but I could really care less about baseball. It’s a one-dimensional sport, and not nearly as exciting as the NFL.

I hope you all have a good week as well. I’m bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and ready for calamity to strike me back into humility. Yorf.

**UPDATE 3:40 pm**

What a zooming day. I’m already here? Really? I feel like I just got here. I’ve been highly productive today. I published more tasks to Oracle than I ever have before in one sitting, and I did it all right. As far as I can tell. Hope your day doesn’t make your head spin off its axis. Bai.

  1. I’m glad you are feeling better and had a good weekend!! Just a little piece of simple pleasure for you: I found Maple cotton candy up here! That is sooo exciting! I can’t wait to try it! (I know, I know I’m supposed to be cutting back on sugar, but it’s vacation!)
    Have a good night!

    • Hahaha I would totally break my diet to try that at least once. Sounds like you’re having a good time. I was in need of that weekend break to feel refreshed and recharged again. Been a little stressed at work (and it doesn’t help that I take it very seriously). I’ll pop by your blog later, as I expect you have fun things to share.

      • Nice. Yeah everyone here is going nuts for Halloween and I don’t even think I’m doing a costume. It’s not a holiday that I give much time to, being all about sugar consumption and tomfoolery. But I’m content with being boring. I had my time in the sun already. Hehe. Have a great night.

      • Yes!!! Another kindred spirit!! I’m only doing an event that day because my family is having a gathering of all the kids and they could use my “escorting” abilities. I’d rather see them be safe, then wandering through dark neighborhoods. You know? But I’m not at all interested in the so called holiday. Agreed.

      • I’m kinda sour to just about every holiday with the exception of Christmas, and not for the religious reasons, but rather, the moral implications of the holiday. It’s an unprecedented time of generosity and good will, and I admire the effort. People are happier around Christmas, everyone gets all gooey about it. So it’s fun. And people are generally in a great mood. But to hell with the other holidays, and even Christmas ventures on being just SO commercialized. Some people think Christmas is a capitalist holiday, where the effort is made to shower people in meaningless gifts and material possessions. Blah, no thanks. It’s one holiday I celebrate, and I celebrate it differently and (largely) alone.

      • I’m not a big holiday person myself. The only ones I like are Thanksgiving because for me of is all about family. I like Christmas for the religious piece and my birthday! ;) in case you didn’t know that is a holiday. I’m in talks with the president to make it national haha

      • HAHAHA, are you dead on the 25th? Or nearby? Birthdays are awesome, just wait until the big number in front changes… very exciting. I’d vote for Sashaday.

      • For me, birthdays are personal milestones. After having been suicidally depressed, I don’t take them for granted. If in going to be alive, it’s relevant to get to my next birthday and appreciate the fact that I made it there. It could have been over at 24, so all these years since then, I’ve had a personal reason to celebrate, even if no one else does. Its my special survival holiday, so it must be my favorite day of them all. As if to say “you made it bud, now get to the next one.”
