Yeah it's been a while since I've been here. It's been a grueling two weeks for me. Work and home. Work and home. Odd shifts. Truthfully I just didn't have the energy to write anything or really to do anything. Today I am finally off. I haven't done much though there is much to do. I have been eating a lot though. Basically I have used the day to decompress. I also have the feeling that I won't finish this tonight. I have made two other attempts to write over the last two weeks but my heart wasn't in it. I don't want to give the impression that I am in a bad place. I'm fine. I'm just tired mentally and physically.
A friend of mine emailed me a story he found on the web. It seems that a policy officer stopped a man for speeding. Looking in the car he noticed a leafy substance on the floor of the car. Long story short he was arrested. The guy arrested was also suspected in trafficking crack cocaine. A further search of the guy revealed that he had 28 grams of the stuff up his butt. Now there's an enviable job. Anyway this was the resulting headline.
Spartanburg Police: Crack Found In Man's Buttocks.
I have a question concerning two possibly four words. Is it a lot or alot? Is it anyway or any way? Or is it both ways?
On today's (Monday) local news I heard what possibly could be something disturbing. Traces of radiation from Japan have reached Massachusetts. According to local officials it's just trace. Still it does make you wonder. Japan is on the other side of the world from me and yet it has been detected here. Now I'm not in a panic mode nor is anybody else but it does make you wonder. Where I live I am between two nuclear power plants. One in Plymouth Ma. and one in Seabrook New Hampshire. I don't think we have any major fault lines around here though I'm sure there are some. It does make you think. Japan is a highly advanced technological power and the third largest economy in the world and yet they went ahead and built power plants on literally shaky ground. I am sure they will eventually solve the problem but it does make you think.
I finished the the two loaves of Italian bread that I bought in the North End of Boston a couple of weeks ago. Boy they were fabulous. Also on that St. Patrick's I bought a chocolate mousse cannoli. I know that sounds a bit strange, buying a cannoli on St. Patrick's Day but when you go to Quincy Market/Fanieul Hall the very Italian North End is a 10 minute walk. Besides, if you're in Boston you have to go there. It's where Paul Revere left on his ride. It's the very start of this country. I get goosebumps every time I go there. Besides the multitude of restaurants there are the pastry shops. I had to have a cannoli. It was wonderful. It took me two tries to eat it all as it was a big cannoli about 6" long. OK. Quiet down. I can hear you all snickering out there.
Well I guess that's enough for no It's Tuesday morning and I'm off to work. See you about 5 or 6 tonight.
I'm outta here.
