Dept. of Long Time, No Post

Again, I'm Trying Again

Perhaps I should stop using Twitter; my attention span has melted like snow, and my ability to think cogent, long-form thoughts has melted along with it.  Three times I've tried to write a post worth someone's time; three times I've failed. And we're not talking about the multiple days that I just didn't try to begin with, or the multiple days I didn't read my f'list, or, reading, did not comment.

Ah, me. As we are wont to say in our house about whinging too damned much: Grumble, grumble, grumble, whale meat again.

(Hey, it's a thing. A kaffyr and BB and FB thing. ... Ahem ... Perhaps one had to be there?)

In new TMI news, I went through roughly a week of intermittent nausea that became absolutely awful on Saturday. One doctor's visit later, I need to get a gallbladder scan, and I've been told to lose a little weight, cut the caffeine and cut my stress. Cut my caffeine? Eurgh. I already don't drink coffee much anymore. Cut my weight? Yeah, probably.

Cut my stress?


Oops. Thinking out loud again.

Do keep trying. If it's easier to start by posting short, post short. I enjoy your thoughts.

We have family phrases like that one too, mostly quotes. "I think we'd know normal if we *saw* it..." (usually while looking at the kids, stolen from Calvin & Hobbes) and anyone who in our household says "This must be Thursday" is immediately answered with a chorus of "I never could get the hang of Thursdays" (the late great Douglas Adams).

Is the whalemeat from Moby Dick, or Shackleton's Antartic voyages, or somewhere? Or is it just one of those things?

I enjoy your thoughts.

And I yours; I just don't say that nearly enough, to you or others.

We have family phrases like that one too, mostly quotes.

Indeed, I think we many like that, including "I don't think anyone actually saw the candidate eat the rat." (Paraphrased from a long-ago National Lampoon - and, unfortunately, all too real this year, now that I think on it. Depressing ....) As well as "Dear God, perfect ice-cubes again!" from a cartoon of a woman weeping for joy at the door of her refrigerator. We don't even know why it makes us laugh. As for the whale meat quote, I was made curious, and went a-Googling and found out that "Whale Meat Again" was the name of Jim Capaldi's second album. It's also, apparently, the punchline for a rather old, rude, and possibly racist British joke, but there was less about that.
