trials of a troll trying to get by in a world messed up by humankind [ I'M AT UTC -5]

I’m p*ssed tonight…well maybe not p*ssed but very annoyed…a few of the people I have chosen as close to me could have made a choice that would have given me a little human contact…I live alone…except for my two cats and there was an opportunity to allow me human contact that was denied…because…well I don’t know why…


It’s late but I don’t have a “wake up” call tomorrow…don’t have to be anywhere until I decide I have to be somewhere…a little TV tonight…a little blogshares…a little #blogshares…and a bit of stronghold crusader PC game…a snack of an pears and peanut butter…if I have fresh pears…probably my favorite fruit…I like them raw with a large potion of blue cheese…if heated…blue cheese and balsamic vinegar…if canned then with peanut butter…the latter is a hold over from my youth and mom’ cooking…occasionally as a dessert but more often as a salad with a meal she would serve canned pear halves on lettuce with a spoon full of peanut butter in the hole that was made by the pit…one of the two fav memories of my mom’s food as a kid…the other…well we’ll talk about that at another time

Today has been several disjoined days in one…I slept poorly yet well last night…went to bed early but never slept more then an hour and a half at anyone stretch…a bad dream here, too long in one position there and a run to the can there…the whole workday was just as disjointed…a very busy…very frustrating morning…followed by a bit less distressful but strange afternoon…why do the work peeps demand a response/responsibility from me on things that are totally out of my control…dang…

A few errands…an a bit of TV…and the rather constant presence of cat aggie on my lap…just a very strange and weird day…but two off and I hope to get some stability in what was a weird week…

I got more p*ssed off then I’ve been in a long time tonight…I’m a forum moderator for blogshares forum (a link to my blogshares profile can be found somewhere in the right sidebar under” listed on blogshares” …

Well the peep posted a message accusing the moderators of a particular board of an action that he himself took…maybe I’m over tired…and in a lousy mood but it really p*ssed me off…I haven’t got that aggressive in months but I backed him down…but still despite the fact that I accept his apology …I still have a raw taste in my mouth so to speak…

A nice dinner of sausage gravy over toasted English muffins… a very nice store bought brand at a dollar store which IMHO is better then name brand products…

And a gentle night…I have basically chilled out tonight…except I still harbor a bit of resentment for the unwarranted attack on blogshares…whether I will get over it…gently…or attack the guy legally within game rules…(trollie flips a coin and the dang thing lands on edge)…nuts

I have been involved as of late in an ongoing email chain with a bunch of guys I’ve know for almost 40 years…actually my brother knows most of them better then I do…he was 8 when we moved to Watertown and I was 18…but it’s been a blast remembering the good and the bad times…I’m the oldest of the group by a bunch…but at our gathering last year I made the best pasta salad…

A very frustrating workday…things are sliding to the end of the week…and tomorrow and particularly Friday promise to be monsters…and a bunch of nagging issues today that there seemed to be no explanation for…and a bunch more that there were the same explanation for the last time they cropped up…dang…I have explained the same mistake to the same peep at least a half dozen times and the same mistake gets done every time…if you don’t really understand how to accomplish a task on the software that you do 6 times a year and I do 100+ times a year then ask me to do it…rather the make the same dang mistake you make every time…it’s a minute job done right and a hassle done wrong…

Was so blown out by days end that I got take out…just had not the energy to even consider cooking…

I hate to admit it but I have gotten addicted to the “Charmed” reruns on TnT…

Watched the new episode of “Top Chef” on bravo-tv…have no problem with the guy who went home…have a major problem with the winner of the last challenge…

Made an appointment to get to get my car inspected on Monday morning…now the trick is to remember Monday that I go to the dealership at 8 AM…and not to work…

I have spent most of the night whether watching tube or on the computer with a cat on my lap…my two “babies” have spent the night rotating on and off said lap…a common occurrence…which I accept…I leave them alone most of the day…but do they really need to sit on my face so I can’t see anything but their hairy butts…

Nite all
Today was one of those days when nothing went terribly wrong…but nothing went more then marginally right…a neutral day…and they bug me more then anything…I’d rather be neck deep in crap then have a neutral day…

I made a very simple but vey elegant pizza for supper tonight, if elegant can be proper applied to pizza…a store bought shell…I have neither the time nor the ability to make the shell myself…well I f truth be told I have the ability but not the patience…a little evoo. A bit of garlic…a tad of Romano cheese and a toping of sun dried tomatoes and 12 minutes at 475*…a beautiful thing…. And a delight to the pallet…

I’m listening to a little Holst…a tad of Tchkaik…and if I stay awake that long a tad of Britian…

Live with it…I rarely listen to anything outside the classical domain

I’ve got to admit regretfully that I am impressed with the work I’ve seen of the actress Anne Hathaway okay so maybe silly chick flicks and teenier fare but she is a babe and a very good sight comic

Not a bad day…not a good day…just a day.

I am never going to watch the next food next work star on the food channel again…they pulled the same crap they did last year…they chose when push came to shove an ethic cook to advance and sent home a “white bread” cook who’s style and dishes were better, simply because they need an “ethnic star” and frankly while I understand the move from the corporate stand point…it’s simple crap…

I have had a bad couple of days physically…although I have felt better a of late…Easter Sunday…services and class went fine even though I I way below par…went to the daughter’s for dinner…a fine meal…roast pork done with a honey glaze, which was very nice and one done with a cherry glaze that was out of the park…nice meal…
