FRAGMENTS FROM AN ODD DAY
well, the laundry has to be done. i bet i can fit all the towels, socks and underwear into this one laundry bag and carry it down the street to that laundrette across from flore. the bag slipping out of my arms. it is so damn heavy. maybe this wasn't a good idea. are my feet tripping over each other? shit. yes. they are. SPLAT.

"Hey! Are you okay?"

am i okay? "Yes! I just tripped. No big deal. Thanks!"

"Man! That is a big bag of laundry!"

"Yeah..." ...why, yes, it is. shit. can i get up? maybe it was my shoes. diesel shoes are kind of strange.

i've got that bag, i will not drop it and i will not fall down again. shit. is my back out? ok. my back, like, totally hurts right now. i'm okay. i can do this. $10 just to wash these loads? i still have all the shirts and jeans to lug down here. how am i going to ever get these loads back to our apartment? my back so hurts. shit.

"You know you can get a rolling cart down at the ace hardware store on market. Looks like you might need one."

yeah, right.

"You mean that doesn't come assembled? I have to pay $50 and it does not come assembled?" oh, good. they are assembling it for me. is that my phone ringing? maybe it's B.

"Sure, I would love to meet with you on Monday!"

"You know, we are very busy here and we don't put up with bullshit so don't be late for this interview! Do you understand?"

"You know, I don't think this is going to be a good fit. I am going to pass on this position. Best of luck and thanks for calling me."

click

bitch. what was that all about?

B called. now, i've got his voicemail. oh well.

"Are you sure you want me to use '1'? Have you used it before?" jesus. i do know how i want my hair cut. leave me alone. just cut my hair.

why would someone send me the DVD of MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH and not tell me who they are? why do people do that? it is really cool and sweet, tho. isn't it?

i forgot to eat. maybe that is why i feel odd. this chair is so ugly but the vibrating feature feels so good on my back. i love this chair.

have i been doing laundry all day? i have. i really should eat. wait. i did have a cookie and a diet coke in between the second set of loads. who needs real food? i think i do. i wonder if alan and ing are free tonight. nope. they are not. nor are they free for tomorrow night. wait. i forgot to ask them if them if they were free tonight. oh well, my back hurts.

does this beard look good are really bad? is scott caan cute or not? he's like one of those frat boys that you would want to avoid because they are so dull and stupid.

isn't it sad that the film directors think it is so unusual for a lower middle class family would have an office in the side of the living room? "We love the idea that they had an office in the living room! How strange, but oddly 'real'!" ...yes. these two LA filmmakers understand real life. not.

...is that supposed to be that soft? yeah. maybe that's the way it is supposed to be.

maybe i fell to earth. no. i just fall on the earth. ...a lot. ...and damage my back.

Proof positive that we are totally related somehow, somewhere along the line...

Hugs and Motrin and Ice Packs, Matty. Feel better!

Karyn -- We share many bonds! And, our eternal grace is one but a few. I don't have any ice --- but I've laid about on the floor and pillows and in the vibro-chair. It feels a bit better. ...as long as I don't move. Which goes against my nature. I'm on my way out the door, baby! ..and let's hope I don't fall down and go boom again or have anymore mean HR phone interviews where I am warned to not bullshit. oy.

Robert -- Thanks! Naw, I think I just pulled/sprang a muscle. I've been trying to get it to relax. No insurance so no doc visit. Sigh. But, I've been laying about all of the weekend thus far. I ventured out twice today and had to come back -- hurts too much as I walk. I have plans for tomorrow night so it better feel better by then. Pain in the head and back can never be underestimated. Pains there just suck. Why o why am I such a klutz!?!?

There is almost no ache that cannot be helped with the application of massive amounts of Ibuprofen, coupled with an intensive hug. Keep applying both until the pain goes away.

"Why o why am I such a klutz!?!?"

Silly, it's so you can apply my remedy.

Hi Matt,

Sorry it's taken me so long to thank you for allowing me the opportunity to once again, say hello to Sandy. It's been a long time.
