draining sun....

probably THE last day to sit in the street in the sun...looked at upcoming forecasts and rain, then in the 60s....and i did NOT get enough sun this summer! i made today count!!

20160925_125908

little before 5 as the sun was getting out of street range and it was getting chilling....bye summer sun!!! you will be truly missed!!!

P9253335

i could find the cult's video for 'sun king', they have an actually video for it but it's on the tubes of you....and one MUST watch ian astbury, oh yes...fire woman will suffice.....



started another book today....oh wait, i've read like 3 others in between the last i mentioned....maybe i didn't even mention the last one....no idea...i'll figure that out when i post them to my pinterest 'books read 2016' board....no, not quite capable of doing that now....

the smaller research project has really done a number on me....everything compiled but it's mentally and emotionally draining to even to begin to cohesively put all the parts together....i know i need to do that before i get back to the other one....that one isn't draining at all....rather invigorating....i think i'm going to have to go talk to someone about the first one---how to deal with the emotional draining aspects of it because mr. google is not being my friend when i try to ask/find answers how to deal with this....no, that's not being made public.....if i KNOW you and trust you, you will be able to read it all when i'm finished with that....the other one will be totally public....some people are waiting for it already.....

ugh, it's depressing to think that soon---a month or so---i won't be able to be barefoot outside....why i don't live somewhere where it's warmly sunny year round i have no idea....oh wait, yeah i do....i'm a misfit toy and this is the land of....i'm in my place....

best go medicate baby and pan and go to bed and read....

too much black mold....

to the person who had lost my email, THANK YOU for commenting---i'm not making that comment public---and i emailed you at the email addy you left me....the other commenter, i replied, but i'll post it here too: TRIPLET BLIMPS?!?!?! NO!!! i got the one i posted a thank you here....but TRIPLETS?!? missing triplet blimps!!!!

very slow going today....could have been out in the sun or even doing yard work---haha, yeah i even find that funny at this point....got up really late as i was up late out in the hood talking to neighbors, plus i was exposed to black mold for a little too long yesterday.....Wendy messaged me that a door was missing from a vacant house---that is filled with black mold....uh WHAT?!?! yep....hood rats took the damn door right off!

P9233317

so....after looking around all over for some plywood, another neighbor and myself got it sealed up the best we could....we expect them to come back to get the copper pipes and appliances for scrap....now this pix isn't very focused as i was using the flash and was sniffling up a storm; but i'm okay with that, as you can't CLEARLY identify my neighbor who helped....though yes, he posed and he suggested i post it....

P9233321

it's booby trapped on the inside too....cuz, well, gee, i'm known for my hood rat booby traps.....we obviously left the house in a different manner....booby trapped that too....city and police notified of the missing door....gotta get the top portion covered as the black mold smell just wafts for a hundred feet or so depending on the wind's direction....

fucking DOOR just GONE!!! DAFUQ?!?! what a weird ass week around here! furniture dumped in Wendy's back yard by movers in the middle of the night, door stolen....oh wait, this is the land of misfit toys....okay, never mind.....

didn't go to kent....also learned yesterday that the blue line marathon is no longer the roadrunner marathon, now it's first energy and children's hospital....uh WHAT?!?! first energy who keeps changing their story with PUCO as to why they need to increase rates or they'll close their akron headquarters and lay off all the workers here---yet they're sponsoring a marathon?? like eaton was a cleveland art museum sponsor!! then what the fuck is children's hospital doing sponsoring anything??? they have their hand out for any/every dollar they can get!! they got the city to give them a steam plant, they just got them to give them, IIRC, $9 million building----wouldn't even tell them what it was going to be for....give us give us give us....then they sponsor stuff? WHY?!?! they have a total monopoly!! parents have no choice but to take their kids there!!! grrrrrrrr......

alright, it's 4:30 and aside from going to da store i've done diddly.....need to do some dishes, get some laundry going, and i guess dive back into my research project....ah, but which one? well, one i've completed the research, i need to compile it in a dossier---cuz that sounds cloak and dagger like---and only a few people will receive that....nope, it'll never EVER be made public....don't even ask.....that's the one that is making me thinker though....the other one, i'm still compiling and yes, it'll be public...yet another miss tia public service project....

my mind, currently....too much information, driving me insane(r)

blah blah bah.....

someone left me a comment the other day saying they had lost my email....i replied to the comment....i have no idea who it is though, so if you could give me a clue--i won't unscreen that comment---i'll find your email and contact you if you wish...

so yesterday i truly was determined to do some yard work....alas, i got into a very pleasant conversation for about an hour with a neighbor's visiting dad....and then? well gee, i thought it just best i sit in the street....

aside from THEY saying it's gonna be partly cloudy today, i just see the sun a shining....haven't even taken a bath yet as i slept late...to avoid distractions and diversions i think i'll stay in the backyard til i accomplish some work....

gotta look up tomorrow's road closings as it's the 'blue line' AKA roadrunner marathon....i call it the blue line marathon as, yep, there are blue lines painted along the side of the roads that they run on....they close intersections and streets for IIRC 30 minute periods...they come thru north hill, last year down gorge which entails closing tallmadge over rte. 8 for a bit, then cuyahoga falls avenue....since i wanna go to kent to finally get my tire situation sorted, i need to know 'safe' times to leave...

best go start my day....have my one big research project i'm working on, but have since got diverted with another research project....i obviously don't research while sitting in the sun, though i will outline the info i've gotten so far, for a bit, and start to put puzzle pieces to together...."stat jockey", ffs, that still just flummoxes me....

thinkering furniture moving is tiring....

new neighbor mentioned in this morning's post is a-okay with being called Wendy....so from now on, Wendy, is the new neighbor....

she got there around 9:15am and i got down there a few minutes later and by 1pm we had it ALL in by ourselves!! some of it was heavy ass furniture too as it's solidly built....of course it's all on the 1st floor for now but it's not IN THE BACK YARD!!! i told her she added to the land of misfit toys' lore today with the furniture dumped in her backyard in the middle of the night....

went to watch the crows, as their traffic crowtrollers were ensuring the homeward bound crows started to take the fall path home, and they were directing them to the clock out tree and a tree by Wendy....i'll go out tomorrow around the same time and be where i am NOT treed in, to try to video that as it's really fascinating to watch....saw Wendy outside and she's obviously exhausted, having drove all night, then moving furniture, and only getting a few hours sleep....i hope she gets a good night's rest tonight....those ding dong movers...

i came home after helping and then sat my ass outside in the sun....mused about statistically odds with a friend on the phone....i agree, that's an odd thing to talk about....but it was very relevant to something....

tomorrow partly sunny and very warm....should i plan on doing some yard work?? best not....the only thing that aches after all the furniture moving is my right shoulder and arm....that's not bad actually, considering all the lifting of heavy stuff...if it's achy tomorrow i might try to do some left handed yard work....if it's not too cloudy, then we know where i'll end...six letter word, starts with s and ends in a t....STREET....

alright, gotta give baby her antibiotic--she's really fighting getting her meds now, that is good in a way, but also bad cuz she needs 'em....and give pan her meds...

have lots to thinker about, in a couple different areas....in one case my mind is totally made up about something and i know what to do....in another case, it's beyond a DAFUQ and i think it's gonna to be awhile before i can process it all, think it through, get feedback from a friend or two, and then thinker more....bugger! thinking too much is something i can't turn off....i wish i could...then trying to see the other side impartially....oh for an off button....or perhaps to be like a lot of people and never think things through thoroughly, never consider everything, never try to rationalize things, never reflect on things....to just sort of shrug over something and then go about your merry way to dump furniture in people's back yards in the middle of the night.....i sometimes think i'd prefer that....ultimately i know i wouldn't....

"won't get fooled again"



"history never repeats, i tell myself before i go to sleep"



"happens all the time"

things that just make you go DAFUQ?!

got up really early 5:30--which is early if you were reading til 12:30 or so...but sometimes you wake up and know you aren't gonna get back to sleep....looked at the phone and saw i had a text from the new neighbor---i'm gonna have to ask her what name she'd like to known as here....i'll suggest perhaps wendy, a la wendy testaburger from south park....anyway, still for now 'new neighbor' had texted me around 3:30am asking if i could check to see if her furniture had been delivered as the movers were being dicks and she was on her way here....she said they had threatened to leave it outside instead of waiting til she got there and/or when someone else could be there to take it inside....

hadn't wandered the land of misfit toys in my bathrobe in quite awhile, so i went to look around 6am, after i got one cup of coffee in me, and holy fucking shit, they left it all outside!!!! i'm still just dumbstruck by that....i took a couple pix and texted back and she phoned me....i walked around and told her what all i saw....from the condensation on it, compared to the condensation on the ground, i'd say it'd been there probably most of the night....she said she knew it hadn't been there at 10pm when someone went to check....i know it wasn't being dropped off at 11:30 as i heard nada when i let the dogs out at bedtime....

they left no paperwork that i could see either....they barely left a path to the door....i had to go sideways to get around there...

so i said i'd be 'on call' for when they got here and wanted to start hauling stuff in....i think we two can get most of it inside....a couple things will require assistance, i think, yeah, pretty sure....we can round someone up around here to help....

i had already thought of not doing yard work today--as it's suppose to be sunny today and party cloudy tomorrow....so hey , that works out....after moving stuff, i can rest from that in the street in the sun....wanna finish the book i'm reading....also working on a research project...as in real research and not being a "stat jockey" for someone....i really gotta write about the convention hell experience...

i had mentioned to the person who caused me the most problems i loved to research, so gee, they made me an incredible offer based on that: they'd send me website links and i could take statistic numbers from the sites for them being a "stat jockey" and they'd publicly thank me as payment....when i replied, aside from pointing out that by the time they linked all the sites, they could just get the stats themselves, i made clear the type of research i do....in depth research, analysis, cross referencing of things, etc mostly with public records of government employees...though i've researched other things, i always try to be thorough no matter what the project is, ensure i have primary sources, etc....fucking "stat jockey"? dafuq?! of course they then backtracked....eye roll....really gotta write about that....probably would also be therapeutic too....should write about some of my previous research too....the government dox work....i did that for free, as i consider/ed it a public service....i know what i can and can't publicly say there...

ah, the new neighbor had to confirm the name of the movers....just got a text with that--they're still on their way here....JJS transportation are the fucktards who dicked her around, fucked her over, then dumped her stuff outside....their motto: Our Reputation is Your Guarantee! ...well their reputation is total shit, so their guarantee is total shit....JJS must stand for Joker Jerk Shitheads....

now off to check clothes in the dryer, feed the dogs, take a bath and be 'on call'....

the quest for an accurate tire read....

....went to the tire place...this is pathetically funny....their NEW gauge wasn't working today! they checked with the 'old' one and the one guy who might have a side hobby of playing banjo in the woods, filled them, actually over filled them....sigh....

got home and called vet to request a refill of pan's pred....now i figured the doctor would give her one, since he'd seen her a few weeks ago for her shots, she was on pred in july, and this is her 'thing'--chronic skin infections that obviously i can't stave off or i'd do whatever...the lady said they'd call back if it was ready, or he wanted to see her...that was 'normal'....

then i went into the yard and picked up some dog shit, then, fuck it....ah yes, the street was calling....yeah, sure, the street calls 'tia, tia, bring the chair out and sit on me'....if it DID call that, that's certainly reasonable and so i got in a nice 4 hours of sun time....no call from the vet...huh....was gonna call around 4, but figured i'd wait til around 5....called a little before 5 and gee, it was up front ready for me for a few hours....i knew this how?...well, they admitted there was no note to call me back, so their mistake....

i could have waited til tomorrow but, but, i could go to the same tire place i went to friday to get the pressure checked!! now yes, i could have done that tomorrow too, and perhaps this is anxiety based, though it might be 'normal' to want to determine IF you have a tire leaking air so you can get it FIXED and not worry about it being a problem when going somewhere....i have read that the light might need reset and that's fine but i wanted a VALID READING before i reset the light...and when it comes to SOME things trying to determine if they're anxiety based---due to my PTSD---or 'normal' worries....sometimes i have no idea...does anyone know what 'normal' really is? if it's not outrageous, i'll file it under 'reasonably normal' anxiety and act accordingly, such as today....just go today, get the tire pressure checked, get pan's pills, be done with it!!

wanted to make dinner, it was 5, but nah, i'll go and eat when i get back....i had a tallmadge police officer behind me for a bit and i swear i have NOT gone that slow---the speed limit---in a long long time!! happy when he turned the other way....

go to the tire place first....well, gee, every tire was different....and really really overfilled....40# was too much---they should be 32#....but one was 50#....they said the pressure can increase 3-4 or so pounds when driving a distance and the roads/day is hot....today was pleasantly hot---baking quite nice out front today!....so with their DIGITAL reader, no dueling banjos, every tire was lowered to 36#....he thought the tires were fine and i'd probably have to have the light reset...yes, i have to go back....not tomorrow....hell no....fingers crossed, knocked on wood, and all that, i said saturday would work for me....i don't have anywhere to go until then, unless something happens and most certainly hope not! i can take a couple books back to the library....i have one read and will finish another probably tomorrow and i have a short one i should have done by saturday...i like to take back more than just 3 to the library, but hey, that will be my 'mission'...ones i'd like to get aren't available via ohio link--yet---though there's a couple i could get now in lieu of the ones i REALLY want and they wouldn't arrive til monday anyway....oooo maybe i can do that....yes, thinkering while i blog....yeah, i'll do that....plus i told a friend i'd get them a book from ohio link as it's in limited release and they can't get it around here....yep....plan....

anyway, get pan's pills....wait, how much were they? where the receipt...$16....no i didn't even look, just handed 'em a card....high maintenance bitch!

yard work tomorrow? 'twould be nice....especially if i do it in the morning, so i can answer the call of the street....must savor that while i can!

think i might get another layout for here....feel like a change....and since it came up twice with 2 different friends, i think i might reminisce sometime soon about a vacation i took....the location came up in conversation....sort of strange too, cuz it's not a real popular destination....THAT was fucking bliss laying on a beach for 5 hours a day watching surfers and listening to this skrew tape....yes, tape...way in the long ago before even cells phones---well non-brick cell phones....

evil eye does not compute....

waiting for bath water to cool off a bit....yes, that's weird....but um, that's par for my course....once i get dressed, off i go to the tire place and hope to fuck they have the same tire gauge! then yard work for a bit....lunch....maybe some more yard work and then street sitting! and since i have a 'plan' that means it more than likely will get blown to hell...."you get nothing done by planning" ~karl pilkington....

current ear worm...



pan's skin allergy is flaring up....sigh....she's on yeast pills...but she needs some pred now, cuz of course....she got her shots the beginning of the month....gotta keep her utd in case she grabs a trespassing critter in the yard....i'll call the vet and see if i just the rx without bringing her ass in since she was there a couple weeks ago....of course that'll entail a trip to the vet....maybe my tire situation will be sorted by then? nah, that sounds logical and that doesn't compute around here...

i go to the tire place for them to see if any tire had lost air and, of course, they got a new gauge....yes, since saturday.....so every tire was reread/filled so it's at 40# on the NEW gauge and gosh, i'll go back tomorrow....i almost said, take off the back passenger tire--as the place in kent friday said that was the problem one; but i'll wait til tomorrow....light still on....went to giant eagle and came back and that was enough for the light to go off....alas, no.....

then went to sit in the sun!! YEAH!!!! no wait....grinch ring tone of doom.....once AGAIN edward forgot how to upload a photo to facebook....he went months just fine and now? i have no fucking clue....yes you can bring it over and bring over 50 cents---he wanted to dispute that but thought better of it, as the other couple times i've done that he knows he has no argument....that's also just a token amount.....

last time he brought over that piece of shit laptop i created a hotspot with my cell phone for there to be internet....well, that didn't work today----i later tested it with my tablet out front and it worked fine, so his laptop was the issue there....it took about 24 minutes to get an internet connection, as for reasons unknown you can't connect to my router even if you are right below the window of the room it's in....that doesn't bother me normally but obviously today it did....had to go 2 houses down to get connected to HIS router and gosh, it took 1 minute---if even that---to post the fucking photo....25 fucking minutes....i told him next time to "try turning it off and on again" and if it still doesn't work, don't call me!!! my prices are gonna go up....

should have stayed out in the sun longer but that shit aggravated me....so i only got about 3 hours of working on my skin cancer time in [my doctor now refers to my sitting in the sun as 'working on skin cancer' to me]....the time to work on that is dwindling so hopefully tomorrow it'll be sunny....yes, i am aware skin cancer is real, but we all die eventually and i enjoy sitting in the sun...maybe i'm a lizard person basking in the sun? i'll check with david ickes....

saw a wooly bear today in the street and i picked them up and put them in the yard so they wouldn't get run over...the crows were on patrol today quite a bit and then there was a hawk around--they were warning about the hawk for awhile and then talking amongst themselves....of course that's when edward had his "how do i post a photo on facebook moment"....i did tell him if i heard the hawk get closer that took priority....no need to forewarn about the blimp as he knows that one....

so tomorrow, after i get my tires checked---AGAIN----and hopefully that one fixed, then i'll work in the yard and then plop my ass in the street....if i hear the grinch ring tone of doom i'm gonna ignore it....actually i might just block calls....only my goodyear base blimpologist friend will be able to contact me! ....priorities!! haven't had a blimp sighting in awhile....that's vital info that must get through!!

oh yes, haven't mentioned it but i got a samsung galaxy phone a few months ago....i can even get online now....amazing....i play pokemon go too....i think the fighting is lame---as fighting always is no matter online or real life---but i like collecting them, evolving them, etc....i don't really go online much but it's nice to have mr. google available at any time...and though i prefer my camera, i can indeed take pix...perhaps tomorrow i'll post about the fun fun day with EDWARD a couple weeks ago--the 7th--and yes, referring to it as 'fun', that's sarcasm....up at 5am....then ended up taking him to the ER about 13 hours later...obviously he's fine---well fine for him....

Swearing Butt Full Moon Reprise

ran a couple errands last wednesday....well, just 2 stores, that's a couple, right? went to bj's first for a loaf of bread and tofu...i had my cell phone in my back pocket....i've had way too much fun with a ringtone making app and my default ringtone is now a snippet from this song--from 4:35 to 5:00 is my ringtone....



so someone calls me...i'm grabbing tofu and there's a woman looking at the frozen food...she looks at me with a pearl clutching face and says "Your butt is swearing"....no, she wasn't elderly....i wanted to burst out laughing but instead smiled and said "Yeah, I know, thanks" and then remained in that aisle until the "mother fucker" cuz we know I'm a mature individual in that way....

eddie is considering getting a smart phone.....he wants that ringtone....also, i pointed out to him if he had a smartphone he himself could find out where he is when he goes to a park, gets lost, then calls me in an attempt to determine where he is....he could even bring up the park's website and and view the trail online....yes, i've had a couple more of those such calls....i don't even really bother to try to look anymore, cuz how CAN you try to locate someone at a park they don't know the name of? "I'm in a park with horse trails" doesn't really narrow it down when there's 18 such parks in the area they're in....sigh.....

this past friday had continued full moon fuckery, cuz why not? i did not end up sitting in the chair in the sun and did yard work for a couple hours until i messed up my back....came inside and baby [Mithras] was waiting in her usual place to be carried upstairs for afternoon snack time....she likes to be carried, though sometimes she'll cart herself upstairs....this time, she went up on her own and i was right behind her.....everything was normal with her....since i was gonna go do dishes and then make dinner, i came in here while they ate in the bathroom, so they wouldn't be in there longer than necessary....

about 20 minutes later i open the bathroom door and baby was looking around like she had no idea where she was, who she was, what she was, etc....i don't think she could hear me nor see me....she was listing to the left when walking....took her downstairs, sat her in the kitchen while i got the carrier, and she was looking around there with a 'where am i? what's all this?' look....get her in the carrier and call the vet....get her in the vehicle and she had started to wash up!! about 10 minutes max, from 'dafuq is going on?' to being able to recognize me visually and audibly....

she's had toxoplasmosis several times but not in a few years....i was thinking it was a flare up of that....it MIGHT be because of that, but the doctor didn't think it appeared to be a flare up of it....her pupils were D-shaped instead of almond shaped and her left back leg was stiff....he said those symptoms pointed to neurological damage from either a mini-stroke or a seizure....a seizure could have been brought on by the toxoplasmosis though she never had one before....he didn't think it was necessary at this point to do a seizure panel--blood work---on her....she's on liquid pred and antibiotics and will be rechecked in a week....her gait was improved within a day....so that's good!!

didn't get home from the vet til almost 7pm....for added mirth and merriment on the way THERE the tire pressure warning light came on....stopped at a tire shop down the road from the vet and one tire was 4# too low....

went over to the neighborhood tire place on saturday and a different tire was 3# too low, the one from the day before was 2# too low....dafuq?? the tires have just a little over 6K miles on them.....gotta go back over there today to see if they went down, how much, etc.....the guy filled them all to 40# and then i drove straight home, not even a mile....probably not even a 1/2 mile....let me check my phone with the google map stalker....it's .6 of a mile away....

suppose to be sunny and warm today....if the yard is still wet from yesterday's rain i SHALL be sitting in the street....actually suppose to be nice and sunny all week---so they say as of now! ah, just let the dogs out and my garden shoes are wet....so yeah, i can't see yard getting done....well i could do some...sounds like a reasonable procrastinating excuse to me! i could start cleaning out my garage though....that's always an option....

was laying in bed around 5:30am and saw the flashing lights of the trash truck....went out front to grab a trash can to bring back but um, they hadn't picked it up....checked recycle bin and that hadn't been picked up either....i thought perhaps they got the trash on the other side of the street but i saw a neighbor's trash can with the lid sort of up filled with trash on that side further down....huh....

went up to columbia friday and snagged a pix---well i certainly took more than one---of the 'harvest moon'....

P9163217

full moon fuckery....

still not outside....will be there in about 15 minutes after i post this, make a PB sandwich, fill water bottle and away i go....

was going to get in bath, saw city truck outside....go out and it's street cleaning....they said they were doing dead ends---trimming by fire hydrants and making their clear....all well and good....go to dryer and get my clothes, take them up to the bedroom, look out a window and see a butterfly bush branch!!!! my butterfly bush is/was in front of the fence in the middle, no where NEAR the fire hydrant!

fly out thru the yard and go thru gate by dead end...in those few seconds ALL the branches that had been flowering were cut off and he was cutting the morning glories that were ON the fence--again in the center of the fence no where near the dead end....."WHAT THE FUCK?!?!?!" well apparently the butterfly bush was blocking the sidewalk and was in the street---by about 6".....it's a dead end, do you notice that no one could even use these sidewalks as they're about 12" wide?....they point to vaughn's house [yes, it'll always be called that despite his passing] and claim it might be in their way.....uh, no, i've asked them and the property owner, they have no problem.....i notice the hosta and a raspberry bush i had in front of the fence were gone too....WHAT THE FUCK?!?!?!? they were fully in front of the fence!

he wanted to target my rose of sharon, which yeah, that's like 3 feet over the street.....i reiterated it was a dead end....the fire hydrant was STILL visible if you approached the dead end---that's the important thing---and the other neighbor's [in vaughn's house] had no problem with it....had they NOT brutally murdered my butterfly bush i probably would have been okay with them trimming the rose of sharon....but NO!!!

then they sprayed weed killer all over the dead end up to my front yard.....now, when horrigan was still our council person he got us on the 'do not spray' list as the LAST time that happened 'someone's' kid had a legitimate [no faking] asthma attack, as did myself.....i think my asthma is fine today but i have a metallic taste in my mouth.....yes, i sprayed the weed killer all off when they left....

i really want to do yard work today but FUCK! talk about full moon fuckery.....i'm really tired too....i'll try to muster on for awhile outside though as it's gonna rain tomorrow and apparently also sunday...

oh, here's the kicker, they didn't remove the ivy covering the fire hydrant!!! they're there to clear the hydrant area but not the hydrant itself?? uh???

grrrrrrrr........i should have a warning label today.....yeah, i know, every day.....

Tidbits

...Edward has a job reprieve until November!!!!! Yes, the crowd goes wild!!! That's when they'll probably be fully shut down.

...my right shoulder/arm has been bugging me for almost a week and I have zero idea what I did to aggravate it. It's sort of prohibited me from getting much yard work done, as I don't want to aggravate it more. Today though, it'll have to get aggravated as I'm doing yard work dammit. Since I got up so early, I can foresee myself ceasing such endeavors early afternoon, if it's sunny, to sit in the street reading. Suppose to rain tomorrow, so I would like to get some work done in the yard and bundle up more tree branches. Not many left, though I'm eyeing more tree branches to cut down!

...Melon had a huge honkin' mouth abscess. I had no idea what it was and was fully prepared for that vet visit to 'not end well'. It formed really quick, and the doctor says that happens. He showed me where it was draining. We were both VERY relieved --I'm sure Melon too. She got subQ fluids, a pain shot, and antibiotics. She was eating again that afternoon and within a couple days you could hardly tell there was ANY abscess!! YEAH!!!!

...was very excited to watch the new episode of South Park yesterday. DAMN!!! Kyle's dad, dafuq?! Looks like it's gonna be another great season!

...speaking of South Park, there's a new neighbor in the Land of Misfit Toys and they love South Park. YEAH!! Finally someone I can discuss episodes with! Yes, they got a brief history of the neighborhood too, including what I call it.

...and it's 6:38am and still dark out. Ugh.

elephant mammogram....

this is from a few months ago....actually the beginning of june....as i sit here waiting for daylight i finally got the pix off my phone---captured the situation better than my camera---and figured i'd write about this finally....

so beginning of june i got my LAST mammogram ever---seriously i will never EVER do that again...first one i had (this would be my second) was at akron general and it DID NOT HURT....i had no idea why people bitched about them....now i do....this time i went to city hospital, since i no longer trust akron general, and it was beyond painful and barbaric....the woman said that akron general did them the same way and no, they don't.....when i said i'd never get another one she said "you have too!"....the fuck i do!!! my doctor pretty much said the same thing....she got the same reply....

akron city did not call the day before to denote you shouldn't wear deordorant....i remembered that from years prior and confirmed that with mr. google....when i got there, they didn't even tell me then!! buried behind a bunch of gowns was a sign saying to use a wipe to remove deodorant....there were no wipes....

a few days before this tit crushing experience i had lugged an air conditioner up to the computer room---yes, i have a window AC in here now....since the AC weighed about 50#s and at the time i weighed about 90# it was a struggle to get up stairs and as i sort of dragged it up the steps the box was braced on the inside of my legs.....

pix from my phone looked better than pix from camera, but even these don't quite capture all the bruising....

so i've got all these bruises on the inside of my legs....the mammogram woman asks me what happened and somewhere from my apparent very dark twisted subconscious, before i get the words out that i had hauled an AC up to the 2nd floor, i blurted out "i was gang raped by elephants"....her face was quite a sight....she didn't ask a follow up and continued her torture.....i bet my face was a sight too, cuz i was thinking 'where dafuq did that come from?'....

when i told my doctor that of course she laughed....she made me tell the other office staff who also laughed....one said she bet that tech was telling that to everyone and i surmised that perhaps not, cuz who the hell said anything like THAT?!?!?!? apparently i do.....

SAINT Mother Teresa?!

Bullshit



She's really Hell's Angel



In short [no pun intended], as Hitchens said, she was "...a lying, thieving Albanian dwarf".

sign o the inner city quitters: stay away

mercury is in retrograde....that might probably i'm totally sure explain things...yeah, i'll blog about stuff...eventually, sometime, i have no doubt...i won't blame it for my cold though, but that is annoying as fuck and is affecting my usual sunny happy happy joy joy demeanor....plus i wanted to work in the yard today but was achy....maybe it's the flu? i dunno....i doubt either is fatal....perhaps next time....maybe next year we can have a centennial celebration of the spanish flu? sign me up now.....

did run my couple errands today since it's go broke day....got a couple things at vmac and the cashier was either new and/or totally clueless....so that was annoying....walk out and you know how sometimes they have people wanting money for who knows what, i rarely pay attention....today there were a couple guys out there and i walk out and one says "we're collecting money to get people off drugs"....uh what?!...."we're collecting money to get people off drugs"....

they looked like they were ON drugs and probably decided to stand out there to get money to get more drugs....since i'm slightly cantankerous today i said "i don't like quitters" and continued on my merry way....



today would have been a perfect day to work in the yard....grrrrrrrr....not wise to do so when you're achy, feel like shit, etc....i might just go ahead and do it anyway tomorrow as i have lots to do in the back/side yards....oh the front? 97% done and i could post photos but that would entail effort and that's not happening...no, posting vids takes no effort....finding photos does....i'll post them eventually....

probably safe for society if i just stay away from peoples for a bit.....yeah, i could snap....if that happens yes i'll video.....



nina simone covered prince's sign o the times....she passed on april 21 too (in 2003)....



one more cover than i'm off to bed....gil scott heron doing inner city blues....i love marvin gaye but DAMN! this cover is it!

Good intentions for the day...

...but it's one of THOSE days, so fuck it all....

Thank you kindly newspaper clipper!!

To whomever sent me the photo of the two BLIMPS!!!!!!!! at Wingfoot from the newspaper, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Very much appreciated!! Got it the other day and I apologize for not posting here right away!! It's on my fridge so I have double blimp vision in the kitchen!!! YEAH!!! I've yet to see them fly together. I hope I do before Wingfoot One goes back to Florida!! If I miss it though, I know at least I'll have another chance for that, unlike last year with Spirit of Innovation who's not returning and will be decommissioned next year when Wingfoot Two goes out to California at the end of next summer. :( The thought of that is just sad, SOI is the last of her kind. The unicorn of blimps! (Icon is WF1 and SOI last August 21).

Other news, yes, obviously I'm here. Working on my 'find front yard' endeavors. I actually hit dirt the other day!! Yes, that's something to get excited about as that entails cutting out individual honeysuckle roots one by one. Very tedious. Still more of them to go. Also found the steps to the street today! Amazing!! Gotta find something to safely tie up my rose bush---like nylon so it won't cut into the stem. Yes, there'll be photos, as I said when I started this endeavor.

Suppose to be muggy tomorrow so who knows how much I'll get done--if anything--outside. Got out early today (10am) and worked til around 2pm. Then the sun was full on, which is great if you're sitting in the sun; but NOT great if you're working. Trying to figure out what to do with the bare slope I have now. I at least will put something at the base to try to stop erosion. There's things I can pilfer (with permission--I know that's not pilfering but I love that word) for that.

Gotta stop typing as my left arm--mostly elbow--is aggravated cuz I stupidly didn't put my phone on speakerphone yesterday and held it to my ear. Having my elbow bent like that, it was about 15 minutes, makes it very angry!! Yard work doesn't bother it. Holding it in a bent position is not good! I was so surprised by who called me though! My good friend Tammy, who lived down the street years ago, is now back in Ohio with her husband and 2 sons. YEAH!!!!

I couldn't figure out why my elbow hurt so bad last night and didn't realize it was cuz of the phone until Klein's called me today to basically ask if they fucked up my prescriptions I picked up yesterday. Eddie said that's sort of nice they call to make sure everything is right; but also fucked up they sort of have to do that. True. They did NOT fuck up! But when I was on the phone, not on speaker as I was making lunch, holding back Windsor from aforementioned lunch, trying to call Oreo back to the kitchen, and Pan emptied the water bowl right then and started to whine. ::eye roll:: Hang up and THE PHONE DID IT YESTERDAY!!!!!! So my calls later today were on speakerphone.
Two fights in the land of misfit toys the past two days. Step right up and place your bets! Land of misfit toys residents Edward and Panacea each faced adversaries in two different battles!

DING! Bell for fight one: Edward vs Yellow Jackets

Eddie was weed whacking a neighbor's yard yesterday. He stirred up a yellow jacket's nest and they swarmed him. He did the logical thing and tried to punch them. He got stung a couple times on his face. He did the next logical thing, which was to try to weed whack them. He got stung a couple more times before he retreated. No, obviously I didn't see this, as there's no video--which would have been basically me laughing my ass off. This was self reported by Eddie.

His stings are still slightly swollen and red today.

Edward 0 Yellow Jackets 1

DING! Bell for fight two: Pan vs Castanets?

Get up and let the dogs out back this morning, shutting the door behind me. Then I go to the basement to get my laundry out of the washer to put in the dryer. Had to put my bikini tops in my dryer bag so they don't get all knotted together.

Come back up and open the back door to let the dogs in. Pan has her head between the back steps and Poli is hoping around behind her 'what do I do?' 'put me in coach!' I hear 'click click click' clicking from under the steps. No clue what she had under there, though I immediately thought of castanets that ran away from a band. My main priority was to get Pan away from whatever and inside. I pull her head out of the stairs to guide her up the steps and no, of course not. She stuck her head right back under the steps and braced herself so it made it harder for me to get her. 'Click click click' clicking from under the steps. Had to practically drag Pan the 6' to the back door. Poli obediently followed me while I pushed and pulled a dog determined to stay where she was. She seems to forget that I'm the head bitch here.

Get them in and am faced with the decision 'do I want to know what's under the steps?' I glance under the top step and see nothing there. Still heard a couple click clicks. I really didn't want to know but figured I needed to know for future reference and the odds of it being castanets were probably nil. Suddenly a ground hog comes from under the steps!! So their teeth were making the click sounds. They gave me a very dirty look then strutted off like they owned the yard. I yelled at them that they should be thankful I saved their ass. Geesh. The little raccoons have more gratitude than that little punk groundhog. Wish it had been castanets instead. Escaping castanets are welcome to take refuge here!!

When I let the dogs back out later Pan, of course, stuck her head in the steps. Seeing they were gone she stuck her nose to the ground and followed the groundhog's trail. I've no doubt she has their scent memorized for future reference.

shit!!

thought i heard fireworks downtown as the AC was on in here...go to check the weather before i get the dogs ready for bed and shit!! not fireworks, thunder rumbles....hold on trees!!!!!!! bow don't break!! out with camera to see if i can see lightening like last week...before it rains...

shit

went out and watched the storm roll in...when it got closer and started to rain a bit, the wind picked up A LOT....it keeps getting really humid then like a cold chill....no tornado watch or warning though but damn if that isn't iowa storm weather....

there's a storm [no tornado] warning now....i've told the trees AGAIN to hold on!! i went out on the back porch and they were gyrating...i couldn't watch....the window is now open in here, but i have the curtain closed....can't see much in the dark, but i can see during lightening flashes....do NOT want to watch!! raining harder now....and rolling thunder overhead....

ah, i'll just go to bed....fuck it....

FUCK EATON!!!!!!!!!





FUCK


EATON!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Edward is unemployed on or before September 24, 2016. He just got his 60 day notice. Fuck Eaton--did I say that already?? Well let me say it again:

FUCK


EATON!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Fuck Bill Clinton for signing NAFTA as all these jobs are going to Mexico. Where gee, they get like $2 an hour and the product is so poorly made the companies send it to the AMERICAN plants to be fixed/redone. Eaton doesn't give a fuck though. I have no doubt the big wigs will get nice bonuses for closing 2 plants in NE Ohio this year unemploying hundreds of people. They don't give a fuck. Yes, I already said that; but it's true and bares repeating. Eaton does not give a fuck!!

Fuck Hillary Clinton for supporting the TPP which will send MORE jobs overseas. They're making similar claims about that like they did NAFTA. Politicians don't give a fuck. They don't care if more people lose their jobs.

Now, Eddie will get unemployment, extended thanks to NAFTA---and I can hear some politician saying that's a great thing. NO IT IS NOT!!! People would rather have their jobs!!! He gets severance pay too. His main concern is his health care. Eaton's current plan is basically where he pays everything out of pocket---cuz they're fucks. Yes, they blamed Obama-care for that. So he's cut back his doctor visits. He's gotten discounts on prescriptions though. So that's a huge thing there. He's requested paperwork from the VA to see if he can get medical or even prescriptions from them. His medical coverage will last for 6 months after his last day.

Now, he HAS said he's going to go to take some of those educational classes available. Then he doesn't have to go thru the charade of filling out applications--who would hire a 60 year old man? He's said he will take computer classes. I so want to watch that. Though he might call me during it to have me translate his computer speak to the instructor. I'll laugh. About the only laughable thing here.

And yes, my grey hair watch starts September 24 too. No, I still don't have any. My doctor looks about every other visit 'grey hair check'. Nope, none.

Now Eddie might bitch about his job; but he's liked working. He's been there 20 years and he, and everyone else there, and those from the Berea plant they closed early this year, will be tossed away. Some people have worked there 30-40 years. Such loyalty is no longer valued in companies. Eaton doesn't have an union. They moved their 'headquarters' to Ireland for tax purposes; but have a brand new $100 million headquarters built outside Cleveland to celebrate their 100th anniversary a few years ago. It's over half empty now. It's when they started doing that that they started having financial problems cuz gee, ya think?? So who pays for big wigs mistakes?? THE EMPLOYEES!

Who encouraged companies to get cheap labor? NAFTA!!! Who signed NAFTA? Bill Clinton, who's wife is just awaiting to be coronated sworn in as president and she supports the TPP too. The Clintons, though, are elitists, the 1%, and who cares about the unemployed people? The people that a policy they signed/are supporting has decimated the middle to lower class of blue collar worker? They don't give a fuck. Oh, for a photo op, campaign stop, sure. Other than that? They don't give a fuck.

FUCK 2016. Just fuck this fucking year.

pan vs. baby raccon round 2 DENIED!!!

i saw the strangest scariest looking bug today EVER....i was gonna post pix/blog about it but alas, it's now a hour later and i need to change my sheets before i go to bed so i'll write about what transpired to take up an hour.....

i thought i'd let the dogs out a little past 8:30pm because it was still light out and i figured it'd be before the raccoons were in the yard....hahahahaha....pan went back to the ghetto patio area where she usually goes but then suddenly CHARGE!!!!!!!!! poli right behind her with her 'what can i do? put me in coach!' attitude....

2 raccoons ran up the locust tree they're usually hanging out in....i start yelling PAN PANACEA PAN COME NOW PAN PANACEA GET BACK HERE....no barking by her---i guess she was going for a deadly silent attack? i had my camera in my hand as i had went up front to see if that bug was still there---before i knew what it was i dubbed it a stephen king bug as it was like something from one of his stories---but i didn't turn my camera on, as i needed to get PAN STAT as i knew there were at least 3 other baby raccoons and MAMA....suddenly this little raccoon ran right past me and was in the patio area--i had started going to the side yard to get pan---and the poor fellow was basically having a panic attack....the little guy/girl didn't know what to do and was just starting to go one way, then turned and started the other way and repeat....i ran over to them and they didn't run from me, they were in a total panic and i swear their face said "help!!!" ....i told them as i sort of scooted them "get up the tree, get up the tree, get up there now!!!" and they went to the locust by the garage---the other 2 were in the other one---and they climbed up about 3 feet and then froze....they needed to get higher than that as pan could reach them...."get up, GET UP THERE!! she can get you dude!!" they went up and then i went to go to the side yard....

i heard no 'shake shake shake'....which was good...i started yelling PAN PANACEA GET BACK HERE NOW again and i saw poli hopping around looking all over and before i got around the cherry bushes PAN WAS COMING BACK!!!!!! holy shit!!!!! AMAZING!!! obviously only because she didn't get a raccoon....got them in the house and then i did a head count....knew there were 3 in the locust trees, so i knew there was 2 other babies and possibly mama around....i found the other 2 and mom in the mulberry tree....thank the stars pan did NOT get a hold of one of those babies as it would have been a repeat from a few years ago where that mom scratched her up (that baby was fine, shook up--pun intended--but fine, as was pan)....

the other 3 eventually joined 'em in the mulberry tree....it was difficult to take pix in the mulberry tree as it was after 9pm now and there was a lot of branches in the way, plus the little ones were running all over playing....

quintuplet mom was taking a well deserved break...

P7110589

then a baby came to bother her....probably telling her "the dog was 20 feet high but i didn't run and stood up to her"....

P7110599

after they played for a bit, mom led them down the tree, thru the yard, over the fence and golly gee whiz, right to joyce birr's house to eat at the 24/7 buffet she has out for cats and wildlife.....

now i wouldn't want any harm to come to any critter, but joyce is not doing anyone any favors--including the critters---by having that out....i think my raccoon traffic thru my yard would drop 75% if she didn't have all that food out....and now i have to go out around 8pm and ensure there's no raccoons in my yard before i let my dogs out---ridiculous....and yes, i will, if need be, continue to ensure the baby raccoon's safety....that poor little fellow....basically frozen in fear....yes, i washed my hands when i got in...i think pan got a whiff of raccoon but i wouldn't let her sniff my hands as she doesn't need that scent in her little mind!!!

now i gotta change my sheets and go to bed....i'll post the stephen king bug tomorrow...::shudder:: weirdest fucking bug i've ever seen....oh wait....this is the perfect neighborhood for it!
