in the estimable words of dinah washington...

'what a difference a day makes'

i should really get that tattooed on my stomach (upside down so i can read it when i look down) as a reminder that just when you feel life has hit that plateau of mediocre shitiness, something or someone crops up out of nowhere (or from right in front of you) bringing an amazing and much needed breath of fresh air and reality into your midst. and makes you happier than you thought possible.

thank you.

"funny, whenever i hear the phrase 'striking coal miners' i always envision incredibly striking coal miners!"

i tried so many times this afternoon to take a nap & it was just not to be.
which ultimately is good because i must get up early tomorrow so getting to bed early tonight is a must. luckily the main reason my nap was interrupted was because my union rep called to talk about some stuff (explain) to me. it's such a confusing process & i am about as clueless as to how all of it works as i possibly can be. it's a bit overwhelming. but it was great to get someone on the phone who explained it all to me, discussed my different options once i get all my days & seems quite amiable about helping find work for those last 3 days that seem to be eluding me. all in all —very good and helpful. i'm going to meet with him sometime between xmas & the new year to sit down & look everything over.. and with any luck i will be a gainfully employed union 44 gal before 2020! haha. god i hope it doesn't take that long.

mid-morning repulsion.

i think we're going to have to add a few more levels to the tower of douchebaggery and reinforce the supports because the current social structure is buckling under the weight of reality

it just never seems to end. it amazes me, it makes me pause in bewilderment, and it makes me wonder 'what the fuck is wrong with people?'

i really just can't fathom some of the bullshit and double standards that take the place of 'personality' in some people. it's repulsive and embarrassing.
