Good, Bad, and Random


AFriendlyFace

Blah, so for some silly reason I thought it'd be fun, or therapeutic, or interesting, or...something to write a blog entry in that style. Probably because I have a lot on my mind, I'm tired, and my thoughts aren't well organized. Anyway:

 

Good:

I up staying in town this weekend and did catch up on my rest.

 

Bad:

Major, expensive car trouble.

 

Random:

It sorta sounds like I'm driving a racecar now...I like it.

 

 

Good:

I thought on it awhile and decided to take the plunge. Sunday I 'officially' became a member of my church. It was really wonderful! Everyone was so positive and friendly, and it's a really cool church. I was joining with my two best friends and I guess I was standing too closely to one of them, because one of the ministers asked, "Are you joining together?" As in, like a couple, like several of the straight couples. LOL, the answer was no, but I got a kick out of it.

 

Bad: (well sorta)

After joining I promptly made several commitments to my young adults/discussion group. Nothing too major, but I'm taking on more responsibilities...don't know what I was thinking considering I already have no time to begin with.

 

Random:

I think I suck at being a part of the background, regardless of what group, organization, gathering, party, whatever I'm at. I think it's some sort of weird social pressure I feel. If things get uncomfortable, people get bored, or something needs to be done, and no one else says or does anything I feel compelled to hurl myself into the mix and take care of the matter.

 

 

Good:

I have a date Friday

 

Bad:

Just when I thought things were quieting down with my friends Luke had a MAJOR emotional breakdown, and now we're all afraid to leave him alone :(

 

Random:

Why does everything happen while I'm asleep and then get reported to me in a load of vague but foreboding text messages?

 

 

Good:

I'm about to begin posting my new story!! It's a serial, and it's COMPLETE. I'm going to release (at least) one chapter a week until it's done.

 

Bad:

I haven't actually been able to write anything in the last several weeks since I finished it :(

 

Random:

If I can save the Oxford Coma from extinction I wonder if they'd rename it "The Houston Coma" or perhaps given my SN they'd call it "The Friendly Coma"...I'd like that; I think writing is much friendlier with it.

 

 

Good:

I've been doing a lot more reading lately

 

Bad:

My eyesight seems to be getting much worse

 

Random:

I refuse to wear glasses, Donald.

(Okay, I know it's unlikely that any of you are named 'Donald', but I didn't think that was a sufficiently random comment given the good and bad, so I thought by adding 'Donald' to the statement it'd bump up the weird/random quotient a good bit)

 

 

Good:

Whole wheat spaghetti

 

Bad:

Attending a dinner event with VERY little vegetarian food

 

Random:

"Do you remember checks?"

This question was posed by one of my instructors today. The very sweet, very adorable (but very straight :( ) boy sitting next me got very confused, glanced at the bag of Check's mix he was eating, and inquired if that's what the professor meant. Turns out he was actually referring to 'checks' as in 'cash, check, credit, or debit', apparently he thought they might have become so archaic that a classroom of young twenty-somethings might literally not remember them...considering the boy's initial reaction this suspicion doesn't seem completely groundless.

 

 

Good:

Falling asleep to the sound of the rain on the roof

 

Bad:

Waking up to the sound of someone walking on the roof and misinterpreting it as someone walking in the hallway outside your room. (I live alone)

 

Random:

Lucky likes to sit on the window sill and meow at birds.

 

 

Good:

Chatting until early into the morning with friends

 

Bad:

Doing so because one of them is afraid to be alone

 

Random:

I love being alone! But then I also love heights and confined spaces, so I guess I'm just fond of all sorts of things which freak other people out.

 

Good:

The internet

 

Bad:

Keeps going down

 

Random:

I called and complained that my dishwasher wasn't working... :blink:

Yeah it wasn't either and a call to maintenance was next on my list, unfortunately I was on hold so long, and spent more time thinking about the dishwasher, so when the tech guy asked what wrong... :*)

About freaking time. I'm not getting any younger, you know. I guess 'Nags R Us' worked. ;)

1) Congrats on joining your church! It's so great to hear about gay-friendly congregations too for a change... :)

 

2) I hope Luke is feeling better -- and great that you're there for him.

 

3) The Oxford coma?? Hmm that sounds rather... comatose. :P Or is there an Oxford coma that has been concealed from me in some sort of elaborate cover-up? (Where people go to Oxford and... faint? Or something?)

 

Anyway I'm with you in your fight for the Oxford, um, yeah. We can still name it the Friendly Com(m)a though, that sounds so good and friendly. :D

Whew! Sounds like the roller coaster from hell.

 

I don't envy you, Kev, but I sure as heck admire you. :)

Aww thanks, Dion! It really isn't so bad at all. I'm doing just fine :)
