Saturday, I worked on my letter to Stephanie J. I never quite got the [guts] I needed to tell her how I feel. But I hinted pretty strongly, and used choice quotes from my old letters to her. I also included some of the newer poems I’ve written to her. Maybe she’ll get the point.[…]
Gilbert handed out our paychecks as soon as we got to work & then let us go (since it’s inventory weekend — we don’t have to be back till Tuesday at 08:00.) So I cashed my check then drove to OKC (& went to Best Buy) & bought a DVD player, “End Of Days” (on[…]
Another beautiful day has come and gone, and what did I do with it? Not much. I had an “okay” day at work, finishing 40 bundles by 2:00pm, which is when I left the plant. I came home & typed in a few of my journals, through December 2000. Then I watched “News Radio” reruns.[…]
NOTE: I was just reading my old letters (as I converted them from WPT to Word97), and I came across a reference to Sonya Bryant in a letter to Stephanie J., dated Jan. 16, 1998. So, apparently, I met Sonya earlier than I’d thought.
YES! I’m finally typing CURRENT journals into MY OWN computer! What a relief! Of course, I still plan to use my notebook on occasion. For instance, if I’ve already readied myself for bed and the computer is shut down — if I have a “final thought of the day”, I may jot it down, then[…]
finished converting “Adult Journal” files, through Nov. 2000. Now, I just need to type in the journals from this notebook (“Darker Blue Notebook”) and all my future journals will be on computer. Watched “News Radio” reruns. Realized that if I drink two Tequizas per day, that’s $60 per month for beer, so I will discontinue[…]
“Poetry on the Rocks” at NG’s canyon — very enjoyable, especially the cowboy poems. Again saw Rachel, one of the cute girls from NG’s class in Shawnee (the one I spoke at last fall). Helped D & Z with hauling some fallen trees to brush piles. Watched Spurs win Game 1 of the first round[…]
Steak dinner at MDZ’s; talk to D about jobs, bosses, difficulties in communication.
Warmer today. Work went well. Bought groceries and more beer and Gordon Kent’s book “Rules of Engagement” (war novel). Converted old files, emptied old floppy disks. Ate BBQ beef sandwiches (3) for supper. Watched “Billy Madison” (starring Adam Sandler). While urinating, for some reason, I thought about what I would do if I ever quit[…]
Ice on the car this morning. Work: okay. French toast for supper. Finished “Adult Journals” through October 1999. Within days, I’ll be caught up (maybe a week from now). Watched my old recorded episodes of “News Radio” — very funny. I’ve had a few story ideas recently, but no drive to complete them or even[…]
Work: good. Weather: cool. Finished “Interim Journals”, spell-checked. Converted more old letters. Ate ramen noodles. Listened to my old compilation tapes. Drank two beers. Gas went up to $1.60 per gallon.
Work: good. Weather: perfect, only growing cooler in the evening. Typed in journals through Aug. ’95.
I had Good Friday off work, so I spent a part of the day at MDZ’s trailer. Heather & Jason were down to visit. Joshua & Mark are in fine shape. I did a load of laundry, then we had Spanish rice for dinner. Zane and I went to G’s where we used her chainsaw[…]
Thunderstorms last night. Yesterday, bought “X-Men” and three CDs.
87°F for the high. Work did not completely wear me out, although machine trouble held me back. I got my Federal Income Tax Refund check in the mail ($235) today, then paid my car insurance and my OK income tax, then bought some groceries. I watched “Scary Movie” (rented) and “Flashback” (mine). It really made[…]
Yesterday (April 6), I cashed my check after work and bought a scanner at Wal-Mart. My conscious mind was not in control of that action. I dumbly watched from inside myself as I walked in, looked at the scanner (which I planned to buy next month), then bought it, along with a Black Crowes CD.[…]
It was cloudy today, but still the temperature remained idyllic and relaxing. I haven’t turned on the heat or A/C in my apartment for 3 or 4 days now. We’re supposed to have thunderstorms tomorrow. I didn’t fall asleep until after midnight last night for some reason, but I managed to blow away the competition[…]
It was even warmer today than yesterday! Lunched in my car again. Dave Coker invited me to play pool tonight, but never called. I ate KFC for supper, watched TV, typed in old journals, and mailed off my phone bill. I also had a good workout, with pushups, crunches, curls & other exercises. The girls[…]
