The Mind's I


Someone wrote on ScribeTribe: Right now, off the top of your head, name 5 things you want more than anything. And don't think about it...just answer.

Well. I did. Here are my brainless 5 things.

  1. I want my partner to get a job.
  2. I want to live in my own place (not my parent's house).
  3. I want to be thin.
  4. I want my own car.
  5. I want a kick-ass website.

Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.
[Anyone know who originally said that?]

An English professor wrote the words, "Woman without her man is nothing" on the blackboard and directed the students to punctuate it correctly. The men wrote: "Woman, without her man, is nothing." The women wrote: "Woman! Without her, man is nothing."

To the pain...

Iko's hand Not a picture of my face today. I think that other body parts than my face can probably express what's going in my life more than just my face. Today it is my hands. I am not at work today because of my hands. On occasion, my hands and feet and knees and elbows and ankles and wrists can be the bane of my existance. I have something akin to arthritis, although the doctors say that it's not arthritis. All I know is that my joints hurt like hell when the weather gets funky or if it is exceptionally wet and rainy or if I experience hot/cold conditions in a short period of time.

So, I spent today being home and being a real bum just lying around, sleeping, trying to force myself to sleep. Typiclly when I sleep, my joint pain goes away when I wake up. Recently, it hasn't been working that way which is kind of frightening to me. I don't like being young and having these body problems. My father blames it on my lack of exercise. <sigh> I think I just have to learn to sleep in a warm environment without the fan on.

Yesterday was A Day Without Art. It wasn't hyped up in the news, so I had forgotten all about it. <sigh> I feel bad about forgetting it. It's an important thing for me. Well, if it was important to me, I wouldn't forget it. It used to be important to me. Now that the day has past, it's still important to me. Funny how people are like that. They say something is important to them after their day to prove it passes.

Not a long entry today. My fingers can't really take it.
