After all of my ranting on racism in the last few days, I feel drained of words. I have a fabulous idea for (another) book though. I seem to have more books in my head than I have time to put them on the page.
I slept without drugs last night. I think I should get a One Day Pin for this. I’m quite proud of myself. I haven’t slept without drugs in weeks now. Heavy drugs too, like codeine and dextromethorphan. God, I love that word….dextromethorphan. But even though I love saying it, I need to stop taking it. It can be habit forming, and I don’t want to form that habit. I can see, though, why one might want to form that habit if their cough lasts for two months. It gets so old.
One thing I will not miss about this job (among dozens) is the constant paging over the intercom system. Oregon PC on zero five! Oregon PC on zero zero! Eric please call Nicole at ten! Scott please kill Monica on eleven! (Oops, I don’t think they say that!) You’re sitting at your desk, trying to attempt some work (or typing on your blog) and the pager squawks some summons. Gads.
Oh my God. My dog is sitting on my lap and he just farted. That is so gross. Piper! Seriously. You couldn’t wait to do that?
