Tom Waits — A Sweet Little Bullet From A Pretty Blue Gun.
What’s on your mind?
happy almost friday pups!
Hi Girl. Hope you are staying warm. It’s really lovely down here on the south central coast. And “Scandal” is back, so there is some salacious diversion on the teevee.
hey dearie — i’ve not seen it but i hear good things about it… how ya doing tonight?
Hi Suzzzz, Dearie
hey ppd — got any plans for the weekend?
Kind of a crazy work week. Drove to Santa Maria only to find that the interpreter didn’t show up. Waste of time and drive. Then today’s deposition got canceled. No earnings this week. Well, there’s always next week. Busy taking care of my dad. He’s working his physical therapy with enthusiasm.
Aloha, Suz, Dearie, PPD, and lln pups…!
Great tune, Suz…! ;-)
yikes — i hope the cancellation came before ya headed out on the road…. tis good that you are able to help take care of your dad
aloha tut — thank you for liking it. how ya doing tonight?
My rambunctious daughter and son-in-law bought another car today…! When it rains it pours…! ;-)
Oh, no. I got up there and spent some time with our client. It’s the breaks of the game. I usually insist that I be scheduled for two depos in case of such an ‘incident.’ The a.m. depo got canceled last week and I though, “What are the odds that the second depo will fall through?” You know….. life is such a trip. It doesn’t happen (those No Shows) that often, but this was one of those times. No fault of our client or attorneys. Never had an interpreter No Show before. I’m hoping this No Show trend has played out!
Might get in a ride on Saturday after some work; having brunch with brother & sister-in-law on Sunday . So far, that’s the plan
did the paperwork go easy?
well double crap – that sucks
training ride? isn’t the marin century coming up?
I swear Murphy is my first cousin…! ;-)
then we must be related because i know that forker is mine
Life can really suck.
My girlfriend let me know Feb 13 she was heading out for the weekend on the 14th. I got her a Valentine’s gift early… she’d been avoiding seeing me since the 3rd… I’ve been a bit depressed from the lack of a job offer and them deciding they didn’t want me for another role on the 7th…
Today I get an email:
I am not rejecting you as much I am rejecting a relationship and any commitment. It doesn’t feel right for me to be involved with anyone right now. I want to fly solo, which I have never done in my entire life. Could be my own little mid life crisis, but I am trying not to overthink it that much. 50 is coming up soon and I am shifting a little. Or of course it could be because mercury is in retrograde … Lol. There is really no reason for my change of heart right now (at least not an explicable one) other then I just want to ponder and dwell a little bit. I am not a particularly deep or introspective person like yourself, but maybe this is me gaining that. Not sure. I am sorry you are the brunt of this juncture in my life, but I don’t feel we should be at this intense period after 2 1/2 months of dating, although I can see and feel that is not the case for you and for that I am sorry.
So yeah, lots of lemonade to make soon.
That totally bites, wmd…! 8-(
fuck (((wmd))) got any tequila to go with those lemons?
Dear John, It’s not you, it’s me.
I’ve told her we need to meet face to face before I’ll accept it.
Honestly I think she’s been working herself into a depressed state, then got an old friend and mentor to advise her that she uses relationships to avoid working on herself.
Which may have some validity, but rejecting a relationship for that reason when it is otherwise good is foolish.
I plan to ride five centuries this year, Marin’s in August.
Heavy irony: I was planning on telling her “I love you” on valentine’s day. And I will do so when we talk face to face.
still sucks big time – and the its not you its me … i never did like that – tis better to just be honest
is there one in april? for some reason that month sticks in my mind
It is her. She’s depressed and may very well have been using a relationship as a way of avoiding some work on herself. But having a partner to mirror and call BS can be very worthwhile. And it’s something I’m good at.
“I love you”
Maybe that is what she was afraid of, wmd…! 8-(
if she’s willing to accept the help
Here’s a reality check: two and a half months of dating is the ‘just getting to know you’ phase. Sometimes it just doesn’t fit, you know?
heart attack and vine
It did fit. Or a bit less vulgar by the same artist.
And Tuttle is onto something with the fear of something working. Sure I’m struggling right now. I’m also a damn fine man and a good partner.

I have no doubt that you are a fine man and a fine partner. It gets ‘interesting’, doesn’t it, while in mid-life. I hope you will find a worthy partner. Maybe this experiment was just a teaching experience. Hugs.
Primavera is at the end of April, Suzzz
that must be the one i was thinking of…
I look at my relationship history and I find that most of the time I let go easily. Statistically of 10 relationships since 2005 only 2 were hard to let go, and this is one of the two.
Sorting into duration buckets – 10 months, 4 months (x2), 2 months (x4), 3 weeks, 1 night stand (x2)
Both difficult ones were short duration 3 weeks, 2 months. Hmmm.
sometimes the short ones burn the hottest but the intensity can mean they burn out faster or can scare someone off as too intense
I’ve been hijacking LLN into an advice for the lovelorn blog. lol. Just a little more ( I wrote this to her ):
I’ll be clear: You have many wonderful qualities. You are fun to be around. We have good conversations. You are into stuff like the trans-humanist conference we went to, and that’s interesting to me as well. You’ve got a body that excites me. We’re comfortable together, almost like we’ve been together a long time already (it’s uncanny how quickly we found snuggling comfort). So yeah, you’ve got it going on as far as I’m concerned – mind, body, spirit are aligned with what I want in a companion, lover and possibly a long term partner. I’ve dreamed of a lover like you, with three nights in particular that stand out as OMG this woman is out of my fantasies.
So yeah just getting to know that I want to get to know her much more deeply. And that may be the problem for her as Tuttle suggested.
not a hijack dood — lln is where ya talk about what ya wanna talk about
For some reason John is very apropos right now. Love is a flower, you gotta let it grow.
She needs to put away the damn herbicide.
gonna bail pups — the pork chop is ready and my taters still need mashing…
g’nite all — happy colorful dreams (as dearie says)
I’ve got to figure out how to sleep tonight.
Good night. First step to sleep is get in bed.
Sweet dreams, Suz…!
Best of luck, wmd…!
Climbing the wall – SJ side of Calaveras is steeeep
Night, Suzzz – be well
