Perhaps You Think It Would Be Better To Be A Duck, Well It Wouldn't.

First things first, as always on Fridays. My new article is up. You can read it here.

Pancake Land and I were talking last night about how quickly the days seem to be going lately. Perhaps it is because the initial move is over and we have unpacked enough of our crap to function like normal human beings. Thereby allowing ourselves to fall into the dangerous routine of get up, go to work, come home, eat dinner, watch television, go to bed, repeat. We feel at home, but it is a stranger’s home. Perhaps we are trying to create a routine in order to make ourselves feel more comfortable. Sort of make it our own. Find our groove in the new house. Whatever it is we are doing, it is stupid.

Hey, I forgot to tell you that there is a new photograph in the Rogue’s Gallery. You should check it out. And while you’re at it, you should send me your picture as well.

Well, it’s Friday so that means it is time for lunch with Word to Me. There is no telling where we are going to eat at this week. If I were to put money on it, I’d say we’re probably going to eat Mexican food. Just a guess.

As far as the work that I have to do in order to make it to lunch goes, I have no idea what I will be working on today. We’re going to be firing the kiln today. Other than that, I have no idea. Probably working on Le Duke’s house. Heavy lifting! Hooray. The good news, well, possibly good news, is that our dishes are in the this kiln. Months ago I ordered dishes for my new house. You know, something to eat off of other than paper plates. The first go round with the dishes went astray when the glaze was not thick enough. All of the dishes looked like poop instead of the minty poop that they are supposed to look like. Anyway, because of the crazy schedule Le Duke has had recently, he hasn’t had a chance to remake them until now. So, cross you fingers that these come out right. Are they crossed? Crossed.

Another weird thing that is going on is that Pancake Land and I have been sleeping for crap lately. Perhaps it is due to the sitting around until bed time thing that I’ve been doing. Normally, I do the running around the house until bed time thing which leaves me so exhausted that I will fall right to sleep as soon as my head hits the pillow. Maybe it is the transition into Spring. The weather cannot decide if it is hot or cold. Therefore we shift manically between hot and cold all night. We get too hot with the covers on so we cast them off and the cold air hits our sweaty bodies causing us to quickly grab for the covers again.

Last night I stayed up past my bed time talking about the upcoming trip we will be taking in honor of Pancake Land’s birthday. We had been talking about taking a cruise to the Bahamas, but for that price we can go to an all inclusive hotel on the beach somewhere. That’s all she wants for her birthday. To bask in the sunlight on the beach. We literally will be going to some remote location to do nothing, but lie around. Isn’t that the point of a vacation? If I wanted to do stuff, I could stay at home and do stuff for free. I want to go somewhere and pay handsomely for someone else to do stuff for me. Hopefully, I will be doing a lot of reading. Catching up on the hundreds of books in my “To Read” pile. If I can whittle it down, then I can lift the stupid book buying ban that I instituted around Grismas.

Well, I guess I should go find out what Le Duke has in store for me today. More soon. ~SC
