Tonight I sat in my favorite coffee shop’s university location like I have been on Wednesday nights since the girl started school in August. I sit there and work on whatever I need to work on. Last week I worked on some book page pumpkins, this week I rewrote my notes from last weeks Italian class. There is a new girl working down there and she is one of the most annoying people I have ever met. She talked non stop….extremely loudly, which she had to do because she had the music so loud. Once most of the people left she started playing with the stations. She would listen to two Lady Gaga songs and then switch to another station while singing and dancing all over the place. I’m fairly certain that the owner does not know she behaves this way…..will I say something? Probably not? Let’s hope next week she isn’t working Wednesday night. Just saying that out loud seals the fact that I’m old….yep…it’s official.
We came home and had to let the dog out. We are in spider plague over here so it’s a crap shoot what’s going to happen whenever we open the back door. I chased away the one by the door with my peppermint spray while these two observed three feet away….
I hear the cat swatting at the fast one that I can never stomp on in the kitchen….I hope the girl doesn’t see it, she will freak out. He’s been living under the pet food storage for the last week. Why can’t it be the weavers that we have an excess of? I can live with this pretty girl….
There is one outside of my bedroom window and I love to watch her when she gets something in her web. She is the first OCD spider that I have ever come across. Look at her straight line of preserved food.
The other night I had a pretty intense dream involving an Orca. I was never afraid of her and she never hurt anyone in my dream but it was still intense. There was that part with the idiot man that freaked out and jumped in the water. I seriously woke up and said “what an idiot!” Just your average attention loving, drama causing, wasting my energy on man. I guess I still have a problem with men….I thought I was mostly over that…I guess not. Mountain woman said that as a shamanic totem the Orca is pretty powerful. I’ll have to take her word on that one.
Yesterday was my six year anniversary of my last cigarette. Do I still miss it? Sometimes? I know I can never have just one…..I liked it too much. It was a horrible experience to quit and that’s the biggest thing that keeps me from picking one up again…..Zia
