Drivel to the left Drivel to the right

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 27, 2015, 4:42 PM

There is no path to peace, peace is the path

Hang on, I think it is dribble.  I never was much good at organized school spirit.  I was in the marching band in high school and, for the most part, the band never watched the football game.  I think the band conductor did because he would cue us for fight songs and such, or maybe he had a timer go off in his head and just played at random times since a fight song is appropriate for a losing team, maybe less appropriate for a winning one, but hey, it was Philadelphia…”yo Adrian”. 

I am back on DA looking for a specific journal entry.  Do you know how many journal entries I have?  I don’t.  I would guess it at somewhere between “lots” and “that’s a lot of drivel”.  Here’s the thing, DA achieves only go back to 2010 and this was written during my very early days here…very…early.  I have grown up on DA *cough*.  Unfortunately, all of my backup files were corrupted, and while I would have had them somewhere in the either, now, my only hope of finding this entry is in a hard copy, printout.  Let that be a lesson to the digital agers.  You are only as good as your last back up, and maybe not even. 

By the way, have I mentioned yet how much I hate windows 8 and HP laptops?  S’truth.  I might be eligible for a free upgrade to windows 10.  Yes, free because Microsoft is that embarrassed by 8.

As I write, himself is watching a dvr’d world cup game.  He is speeding through because he knows who won.  He says the real world cup will be on Tuesday between Germany and USA since they are 1 and 2 ranked despite being paired in the semifinal.  I don’t care other than it makes himself happy.

Once again, I had to explain my stance on not buying anything that promotes a company, i.e. logo, unless said company pays me to wear it, or gives it to me for free.  My nephew, the beneficiary of this world view, pointed out that I was wearing a Boba Fett shirt.  Almost touché.  You see, it was a Woot shirt where the artists barely get by creating something, but not quite not copying it even though everyone and their grandma knows what’s what.  Proceeds go to the artist, and not fed into the Disney profit machine, those management bastards making their fired employees train their own (cheap foreign labor) replacements or not receive severance.  What needs to be replaced is management, and they need to be replaced by nothing, give the workers a raise.

I have accepted the fact that I have gone from middle of the road to republican to screaming left socialist.  I did not want to, I was forced by the general incompetence, greed, and downright meanness of the party over the last 15 years.  Plus, I don’t like corporate oligarchies.

Mercy, I’ve never met so many people who wish the south had seceded, or at least give Texas back to Mexico, then they wouldn’t have an illegal immigrant problem, would they?

People are either happy with the latest SCOTUS or wanting an impeachment (can they impeach a SC justice?)  The thing is, it wouldn’t matter what SCOTUS did, the same number of people would wish them well or ill, just not the same people.  What some seem to forget is that the function of the SC is to interpret, because if everything was black or white, there would be no need to interpret.  Of course, in Scalia’s case, he is senile and forgets opinions he wrote before he worked for the Koch brothers.

Anyway, HRH is expecting her 4th, count em 4, baby anytime between now and 4 weeks.  My nerves are set on edge every time she hiccups.  Ted has gone back to school for welding at the suggestion of his brother who may have ulterior motives.  Hey, whatever the motives, if this child can pay some of his FA student loan, I will be happy, a more useless degree, there is not.

I sprained my ass a couple of weeks ago prying up some counter top.  I cannot imagine how my ass got involved in that action, but I felt it protest and it has been doing it ever since, even pulling in the sciatic nerve from time to time for emphasis.  I just finished a week at the beach with my brother’s family and Wild Thing, and all of that sand walking and board walking have me hobbling about like a peg leg pirate.  We have our own little family excursion to the beach, but that is not until after this baby, and, hopefully, I can sit on the porch, watch the waves, and sip my mint julep, or beer…whatever.  In my dreams, I visualize me rocking a sleeping baby, handing her back to her mother when she fusses.  As I said, in my dreams.  Dreams rarely match reality.  The best you can hope for is a ground rule double, and I don’t even know what that is having explained my aversion to sports.  Speaking of, do you believe my nephew’s kids made us watch the NBA draft?  Excruciating, yet stupidly fascinating at the number of people who seem to pay to get into the venue to watch.  Some people really will pay to watch paint dry.

Bless me DA for I have strayed.  It has been one year since my last journal. Enough drivel has been produced to power a small town, but I understand, some towns are charging for off the grid power generation so I don’t know what I am going to do.

Thanksgiving is day after tomorrow and I am not even close to ready, or the house isn’t close, I am well stocked with food, and so is everyone else who is afraid of the snow we are not going to get.  Other areas are getting snow and so this is sort of a snow shopping support group.

Jess, Ted and I have discussed forming a design company; my vision, his execution, and her marketing.  Ted and I need to stop aggressively agreeing.  Perhaps, if we ever get a product, I will put some up, idk.  Even Ian has offered to contribute if we need welding or plasma cutting.  We will at least get him to let us practice welding.  The cutter, that is too expensive to mess with.

After thanksgiving, and a minor surgery, I will start working on a design for a custom pantry cabinet.  In the meantime, we are trying to finish up some upgrades on kitchen cabinets for Jess, with a cement countertop and probably subway tile backsplash.

I have found sort of a new interest….wood.  We shall see where this interest takes me; hopefully I can get Ted trained in something other than house painting.  He is an excellent painter, neat and fast, but the guy he does work for owes him $1000, and because of his own money trouble, may not pay Ted.  I think they will be parting ways in the near future.

Jess is pregnant for the 4th and final (she tells me time) it is a secret til thanksgiving even though everyone and everyone else’s grandmother knows.  Not Wild Thing because she is a blabber mouth.  They had their first teacher’s conference, and her teacher says WT likes to tell stories and it is very hard for her to contain herself.  I can’t imagine where she gets that.  The baby, Her Grace, is a sweetie; the Viking is everything his nick name implies and more.  I enjoy them, and I enjoy even more when I can just have grandma duty, and not the 3 of them, all to myself, over a weekend.  WT calls them sleep overs.  Everything is a party to her.  When the teacher asked the kids what they were all grateful for for Thanksgiving, she answered “make up”.  Oy.

 I guess there is too much to catch up on in one journal entry, so we shall see what we shall see.  I write as much for posterity who probably won’t read it, as I do for anyone on DA who happens to read it.
