So finally feeling normal after Hurricane Irma. Even though my area was not hit dead on, there was a lot of damage around town, mostly downed trees and fences. Power was also out for nearly a week. I feel bad for the Caribbean because they got hit HARD by Irma and just now Maria. Look at the before and after (This is ONLY after Irma):


St. John, more

I am rewatching Twin Peaks and picking up on small nuggets that I can appreciate having seen the ending. Being in this certain TP group on facebook really gets many theories and ideas in everyones' heads that helps me feel better at times. There really is no explanation and I know it was Lynch's intention to not have to explain anything as we are to interpret it how we individually choose to. It's in our nature to have reasoning behind everything but some things we cannot and that is life and that is what TP was likened to. Life, and how it doesn't always add up. I've been doodling a Twin Peaks tattoo idea because I've wanted a TP tattoo for years and I'm getting the itch again. I have a $100 tattoo place gift certificate that's just burning a hole in my wallet. I hope it didn't expire because I won it years ago.


My mom had to go to the ER due to an allergic reaction to a generic medication. She does fine with it if it's name-brand but what the hell filler did they put inside to set her off? It looks like there are fleshy tea-bags under her eyes now. I know they will take over a week to go down. I had a reaction once and got one bag under my eye. It seemed to only affect half of my face, but it took a while for that to look normal again. I will spare her her dignity and refrain from posting a pic.

I'm getting the itch to start drawing portraits. We used this method in a portfolio class I had in high school in which you overlay your image of choice with a grid and then transfer it to a larger piece of paper with a larger grid to scale. Basically you draw one square at a time instead of being overwhelmed by the whole picture. I'm thinking some Twin Peaks related characters or maybe horror movie related things. Mine from high school was pretty good, it was black and white paint. I am not really at ease with paint but I may give it a shot once the basic sketch is done. But, it's not like photoshop where I can delete mistakes, so there's that. I also want to get my TP bracelets made again, I have two new 3d charms that were made from polymer clay that will be awesome lookin'.

I'm reading No Death, No Fear by Thich Nhat Hanh. It was a gift from a friend because I'd expressed I've dealt with death anxiety. The book can apply to life so it's worth a read even if you don't worry about death/dying. This is a quote that really hit home for me:
“When conditions are sufficient, we manifest. When conditions are no longer sufficient, we no longer manifest. It does not mean that we do not exist. Like radio waves without a radio, we do not manifest.”
Thich Nhat Hanh

I've always like the spacesuit analogy which is basically just like this one with other terms. We are not our bodies, we are within our bodies, like a car or a space-suit. What are your thoughts on this?

I am also reading a book called The Book Collector by Alice Thompson which I actually heard of from a dream-friend [personal profile] beautyizdead via Goodreads. I'm digging it so far! It's a short one so hope to be done today or tomorrow, time permitting. This is getting TL;DR so consider this entry at a close.

So far I haven't got a good night's sleep since checking into the hotel. Getting all the animals over was a trip, especially the cats because they cried most of the way there. One has been hiding on the bed pretty much non-stop. Neither have eaten much at all. But, tomorrow is the day we will be in our new place for good!

I found a piece of a 100$ bill in our new backyard, but sadly never found the rest of it :( Boooo!

Friday we get a truck and move all of our stuff that won't fit in my hatchback to storage. Monday we are checking into a studio hotel with the animals for a few nights before we can move into our new place! Super excited because there is a small backyard area for the dogs. I think they should get to roam free to an extent when they are outside but they are always tethered to a leash. I may even look into a doggy door. I am also grateful for the small fenced courtyard we will have up front and most importantly, NO HOA! Here are the she-mutts:


Just started reading this and in searching for the image, I saw that it's been made into a movie with my on-screen crush Chloë Moretz :D! If you know of books along these lines, please recommend them!

It's so quiet right now. That's the great thing about coming in early on occasion. Not a peep will happen until about 8am. My workplace is never devoid of sound or vox-boxes. I should honestly salt the fuck out of this room, I'm surprised there isn't a poltergeist running amok from all the negative energy up in here.

Speaking of boxes, I need to arrange to get some from Barnes&Noble. Since working there YEARS ago, I've always maintained my box connect! I'm moving at the end of July and things are still up in the air. This should get interesting. I have to remind myself that the sky will not fall, and the Earth will not disappear out from under me, no matter what happens. I emailed the only rental community I could find to elaborate on their pet policy. Again, it's like pulling teeth to find landlords that will accept two LABS.

My brother has suggested I come to Maine sometime in November with his father. My mom would instantly feel left out. I bet if I said I was going alone, she would want to come with me again. Not that it was shitty at all, but when I scheduled it before she hijacked that shit! The vibe would be less stressful for my brother, but what can you do? That's up to him to work on. Besides, I would feel awkward traveling with his father all by myself. We don't have 1-on-1 time at all, and never have.

I just came across this on reddit. This is apparently honey from bees that have collected sugars from the dumpster of an M&M factory. What a lovely addition :/


Here's the full article from NatGeo

Fare thee well, for now.

A musical artist from very close to where I live had a shitty concert ending when a suicide bomber hit the venue and killed over 20 people; many of them children, and many still missing. No news of any affiliation with terrorist organizations at this time, or motive, but the fact remains that it happened and pretty much renders any "reasoning" behind it null and void.

I rewatched part 1 of the new Twin Peaks and it is definitely worth repeating this episodes after going through once. It gives perspective and makes this a little less bonkers (if that is possible of a Lynch film). I plan on watching the rest of the episodes as time permits.

I have been reading books less than 100 pages to help keep up with my challenge on Goodreads. Do you think that is cheating? I mean they are books. Those among them are:



That about covers it; two of these are still in process. Not sure what to move onto next. What are you reading?

When I was in elementary school, which was a private Christian school, we learned the maypole dance. It wasn't mentioned, of course, that the dance represented a pagan festival of fertility; the pole being the penis and the ring the vagina. I find it interesting and surprising we did this, looking back. It was a lot of fun, though.

It's crazy to be out and about when I'm usually unconscious and probably snoring. The blackness of the sky at 4:30am and the empty streets is kind of peaceful. The energy that everyone gives off during the busy day is so overwhelming in comparison. It's almost like existing before the rest of the world is born.

I started reading A Wrinkle in Time a few nights ago. I had the book on my shelf as a kid for years and never read it through. I must say, some visuals and vibes I'm getting from the story are genuinely creeping me out. There's a scene in which children from a neighborhood in some other place/time are all playing in unison. Balls are hitting the pavement when jumping ropes do, all feet hitting the ground at once, everything in tandem. Then mothers all simultaneously open their look-a-like houses and call for the kids and they all run up in unison. Also when anything describes a scenario where people are just propped and not moving like mannequins, I think of a few scenes from Insidious:




This doesn't really seem scary at first, but what the fuck is going on? It's funny what gets to me sometimes.

My allergies are basically a year-long thing, and things seem to be worse in the morning. And when spring/summer hits it gets insane with all of the tree/flower jizz floating along the wind.

I don't know if it's a coincidence, but I have been using Flonase Sensimist the last four days and in those last four days I've felt great. These aren't the cheapest but I found 5 bottles on eBay for $31! If your life is ruled by face-fucking allergies, please give it a shot! You only use it once a day. I should get a coupon for the positive review, no?

I don't know if I'm the only one with weird sandwich layering hangups, but this is how it's gotta be. If not, I will straight up take the sandwich apart and rearrange it before I can enjoy it.



If the sandwich is cold (top to bottom):
Condiments (No Mayo!)
Cold stuff (like lettuce, pickles, etc...)
Meat
Cheese


If the sandwich is hot (top to bottom):
Cold Stuff
Condiments
Cheese
Meat

So help me god if someone puts lettuce, pickles, and other cold stuff on the bottom of a sandwich, hot or cold. Either way, flip a sandwich around and see what you want to hit your tongue first. It really changes the whole sandwich-eating experience.

It's amazing how dead the communities are here, but the site gets approximately 4mil visitors a month. In browsing communities, most haven't been updated in hundreds of weeks. I had shit-tons on LJ but probably not worth bringing them over right now. I'd love some new jornals to follow. Whose journal do you recommend? A few entries are not showing on my reading page. This is serious business.

Every time I attempt to start a regular journal again, I fail miserably. I came over here, despite not having used LJ in years, because of their recent censorship horse-shit. It's 2017 for fuck's sake.
