In a slightly better mood tonight despite the fact that I'm still awake and posting at 1am. Finally got the last stuff moved out of the old place, turned in my key, and now waiting for ex-landlord to mail me my deposit. I'm not holding my breath any more. I'm still waiting for a check from the Associated Press for a job I did on February 3rd, and it's coming up on April 1st.
00 was laughing at her boyfriend over the pipe. She told me when she was talking to him that there was no WAY I would buy the 'incidental' line. His response was that he didn't want me to think he's a pothead. Hell-LO? I wasn't born yesterday.
Incidentally, I think marijuana should be legalized. I know, it sounds hypocritical of me, but I consider it to be on the level of alcohol. I just don't want it in my house, not only for the legal issues it raises, but also because smoke of any kind just about kills me. 00 may smoke like a chimney, but NEVER EVER inside the house. I don't care if it's 120ºF outside.
I have no beef with someone who takes a toke now and then. My issue is that this is my home, I pay the @$%*& bills, and there are some rules that aren't negotiable. And when someone knows them up front and pulls something like this, then hell yes I have issues.
I should probably go to bed now because I'm dead on my butt and have to work again tomorrow. I didn't get home from the other place tonight until midnight, but it's finally cleared out and I'm in a better place (and loving it).
Rats... free time's up for tonight, kiddies. Got to get my two minutes of sleep before getting up and starting all over again.
Before - After
In the grander scheme of things, no soul can truly be replaced. Each one of us has a place in the universal tapestry. We each contribute our own color and texture. When one thread is snipped too soon, it distorts all the threads around it. Other lives can unravel and tear. If the wrong thread is ripped away, the whole fabric of life becomes dangerously fragile.
