time free

Between the storms rolling in and it being a dead week for FSU, I have an unexpected day off. On the down side, no work no pay. On the up side, I am not the least bit mad about having time that is unassigned to any task or triviality.

To daywalkers, it's getting on toward evening. You're thinking of supper and how you wish you hadn't already watched all of Stranger Things. But for me the day stretches out into possibility and a beautiful, thunder and lightning sort of night. I'll attempt to gather in a few friends, play a few games, drink the beer that's lingering in my fridge. Or read a book or maybe cut a stencil for a project I'm working on. Get high and read Steven Universe fanfic. Design a new flyer for trivia night. Sit on my stoop, fight with the cat.

And I even have a fresh haircut. Mine is a good life.

  1. Well, this daywalker just had a nap. It was awesome. But then I had to get up. That was not. Supper is probably going to be pork chops. Shake and Bake. Of course. Will the organic sweet potatoes I'm going to cook make up for the processed food sins of the Shake and Bake?
    I need to repair a rug. How's that for exciting? I'm really looking forward to it.
    No I'm not.

    2. Haha. No. It is a little rug that I got at a Goodwill that I stand on when I brush my teeth. I still haven't fixed it.

  2. Who usually wins when you fight with the cat? Are the outcomes different when you are high? What about when you are both high? (Pot and catnip)

    1. Oh, we almost never fight. And I imagine I lose, because he's a cat and cats give no fucks.

  3. Seriously is Winona not absolutely epic in Stranger Things? My black kitty says hi to your black kitty.

  5. All those things sound fantastic, especially drinking the beer and getting high.
    I always think I am too old for that stuff - but maybe not.
