When I was a kid, we got embarrassed if our knees ever showed in our shorts. My how styles have changed. Now I'm just happy to keep my inner-thighs covered.


Flint and Tinder made in Texas Oxford, American Giant t-shirt, Flint and Tinder shorts

I think my shorts match, but they don't really "go" with the outfit. Looked better on the hanger! I think maybe a darker top would have worked better, or lighter bottom. Hm.

Socks? Yeah, don't think they match. I don't have many short socks to choose from.

I hope someday I get used to shorts that only go to the top of my knees. Any longer is now fashion murder, according to the kids, almost as bad as wearing black with brown! (I still don't get that one.) Maybe once my knees get a little more sun it'll be okay. I am such a strangely-colored person.

I can't sleep. Too much staying up late on the weekend. :(

I have to leave the house in 7 hours. I suppose I'll be lucky to sleep 6. It will suck tomorrow, but it seems like it always sucks a lot more the day after, and by Friday, I'm a wreck. Then I spend all weekend exhausted, avoiding doing anything or seeing anyone, and I the cycle repeats

Oh well.

It seems like I need more sleep than other people.

Starting August 1st, here in ND, anyone who has a gun can "conceal carry" it (except on State property, or on private property that specifically prohibits it).

Doesn't that make you feel safe?  If you're 21, you can buy a gun.  It's not hard.  And now, you can buy guns and strap them all over your body and carry them around with you hidden (or open! we have "open carry," too!), like you're in some kind of damn action movie.

We are one of the safest states in the Union.  Most violence that occurs is domestic violence (not that I'm encouraging that).  I rarely feel unsafe here (to be fair, I'm a white man, of an age where no one hassles me).  But I feel a little less safe every time I think about all the guns and all the lax gun laws.  I have to wonder now if bars will put up "no guns" signs, or if we'll see a bunch of shoot-outs at the O.K. Corral, or neither.

Sometimes I want to move, but nowhere I want, wants me.

I encountered my coworker in the restroom. He asked me how it was going. I said, "I pissed down my leg. Other than that, it's going pretty well."

He was silent for a long time, then said, "At least it can only look up from there."

As I was leaving, I repeated an ages old aphorism. "No matter how many times you shake it, a little always goes down your leg."

He laughed with relief, which is when I realized, he'd thought I'd actually pissed myself.

I wish.

Life?

I hope there's more to life than just:

0 - 30 years of making plans that won't come to fruition,

then -30 - 100 years of trying to soothe yourself until you slip into oblivion.

--when your family thinks that, because you are on vacation, you are sitting around bored and clearly need every second of your life occupied by them.
