The construction upstairs is apparently going to last through the beginning of September. I am only working here through the beginning of August. So I am going to spend the next month and a half fighting a constant headache. The drilling is particularly lovely today.

I need distraction! And amusement! Leave me anonymous comments! Give me topics to write about! Ask questions! Tell me stories! Tell me secrets!

Pretty please?

I have the feeling something very bad is going to happen. Something very bad on a very large scale.

(But that could be my birth control off-week hormone withdrawal talking.)

Eek! I hope not. Though I keep expecting someone to fall through the ceiling, but I don't think that's the kind of thing you meant.

It may be the weather; we've had three days of heavy rain, and the river is starting to flood. I feel sort of stir-crazy, trapped in this town.

That certainly doesn't sound pleasant. I can understand why you're developing a sense of forboding.

Okay, this morning I woke up to an emergency broadcast system check on my alarm radio and immediately assumed that there was a nuclear war on.

I think I would, too!

But it could have been zombies, too. There have been a lot of them around this week.

I'm scared for my future.

Me too.

But why are you scared?

I'm not the original poster, but I'll add a "Me too!" to this one.

I'm scared of the impending end of my long-distance-relationship hell, because of the slight possibility of the "I wasted a year on *this*?" outcome.

So it's now going to be short-distance? That will be a big change, but I hope it turns out well for you.

I don't think there's anything good there. I fear I'll be wandering in the forest forever, without direction, never knowing what to do, and always being alone.

I don't know what I want to do as a career. The only thing I know that I want is to be part of a community.

The good thing about life is that nature provides directional clues. Sun rises in the east, and shadows can work approximately like compasses in the daytime, and major constellations can guide your way at night.

Plus - Mother nature provides you with birds and other friendly things in the woods for company. I bet if you stop worrying about the lions and tigers and bears you'll find a friend to go with you.

Once upon a time, there lived in Boston a woman whose spirit shone with more force than your average star cluster.

There lived in remote northwest Canada a Mountie whose face was more beautiful than those of most famous sculptures. His body had some lovely chiseling, as well.

Sometimes bad things happen to good Mounties. This one had once been exiled to Chicago. Many interesting events occurred during his years there, all involving Ray-shaped men, but those stories do not need exploring at this juncture.

He'd been back in Canada for some time, when strangely he found that, on occasion, he missed the noise, the activities, the stimulation of being around other people. Dief had made his interest in returning to the States well-known, as miles from anything but nature didn't have anything resembling food made entirely from chemicals. Dief did take a very feral pleasure in consuming those chemicals, and in licking their wrappers; mostly he enjoyed tormenting his human-shaped superego.

When he received an invitation for a law enforcement conference in Boston, sent to him as a joke (the crime in major population centers not resembling the crime in remote Arctic Canada), he decided it was time to use a weeks's worth of the months of vacation time he had (having not taken a vacation in any of the 25 years he'd been with the RCMP).

The shining spirit he detected there took him by surprise.

I'm in the market for noise-cancelling headphones. There's a NYTimes Review of 10 pairs up on the 'site right now: Noise Cancelling Headphones (http://www.nytimes.com/2007/06/14/technology/14pogue.html?ex=1339646400&en=f5d1ad13ce991095&ei=5124&partner=permalink&exprod=permalink) by David Pogue

Thanks for the link! I will have to look into some of those.

You didn't mention it as an option, but do you mind if I send you a hug? I hope that's ok. *hug*

Aw, thanks, hugs are always very welcome. *hugs you back*

[livejournal.com profile] orionnebula tends to have that effect. She has special happy-making powers, I think.

Okay, now I'm blushing.

Aww, that's a lovely thing to hear.

Waffles wearing pants eating monkeys!!!

I have no idea what that means, but it's still very amusing!

my brain turned it into a picture of monkeys wearing pants and eating waffles - but the prepositions don't parse that way.
