It's been one day and I feel better already!! I have no idea WTF is going on in the world today and, quite honestly, I don't really give a damn! I had to travel down to Tacoma today on assignment and brought along Faith No More "King for a Day," Pixies "Bossanova" and Jane's Addiction "Ritual de lo Habitual." Yes, a little 90s nostalgia. Where the hell is kerrcarto and CD?
We had a fuggin monsoon up here last night and another one this morning. During the night I woke up to the sound of multiple waterfalls! Damnit to hell! My gutters were clogged again! This is three times now within the last six months and I've had it. Those two evergreens next to the garage are about to get whacked! Quote's in and it's gonna run me about $600 but it will be worth it. The others are too big and bad azzzz to whack but at least these two will alleviate about a quarter of the problem. Hell, I'm getting some serious firewood out of the deal for next winter. Anyway, when I got back home I brought out the Craftsman wet/dry vac and started suckin'. It's OK for guys to suck; it's only when dudes start blowin' that's when, you know, issues. Anyway, I had to climb onto the roof to hand clean the very top part. Note to self: cedar shake is slippery when wet! On my way back I pretty much slid on my ass all the way to the ladder. It took almost three hours to complete the job and none too soon because right afterward, I cracked open a cold one and then the monsoon returned. Damn it's really pouring out there. No waterfalls tonight bitches.
Here's some toonage from my personal collection...
So that's day 1 without news and I have, what, six more days to go? All news is bad news. Good news never makes the news but, in my case, no news is good news. But I'll at least get in this one plug...FUCK OBAMA! Had to say it because, after all, it is fuckin' Monday!
One more thing: I don't miss my kids, yet. Maybe in a couple of days I'll start missing them but right now this break is just what the doctor ordered.
