    We had Grifters practice last night. I didn't really want to but Scott is lonely so... I got there early and moved everything out of our small practice room and into the warehouse by the opened garage door of the loading dock so it was fairly pleasant. If it's hot outside it's even hotter in the warehouse. Well, we sucked. We hadn't played in three months and it was apparent. Scott had a new song but it was rather bluesy which I just don't care about playing anymore. If we were good blues musicians that'd be one thing but I'd rather rock out. So at the end of the night we're starting to take everything down and move it all back into the room. I was out of the room and I heard a commotion. Stan fell off the loading dock. Probably a five foot drop. Not sure how it happened. I had the drums set up right next to the edge of the dock. I think Stan was leaning over to grab his drink then just kinda rolled out and landed on his back. He was in pain and it took him about ten minutes to get back on his feet but he managed to. Ugh. Fucking old men..

    Jeez, I hope Stan’s ok.

    I admire that part about you
    Wow! I don’t think anyone has ever told me they admire anything about me before. You just made my day a lot better.

    Just got back from the dentist. It wasn’t that bad. I’m a little sore, but I’ll live. I miss the days when dental procedures came with an automatic prescription for Vicodin.

    I've been a ball of stress for forty four hours.

    Either I get this new job and suddenly make enough that we can stay afloat even if Tilda doesn't get rehired or I don't and I'm five weeks out from getting laid off and joining her on the dole.
  • Jurf_WurburJurf_Wurbur Posts: 4,042
    Should find out today
  • moetownmoetown Posts: 2,305
    I really hope you get that job. I’ve been reading about the high demand for contact tracers. If my program gets killed buy covid-19 related budget cuts, I think I’ll look into that.

    JPs to you and PMAs to Stan. C'mon Friday energy... let's do this!!
  • moetownmoetown Posts: 2,305
    I meant by not buy.

    I go back and forth between thinking it's a sure thing and thinking there is no way.
  • moetownmoetown Posts: 2,305
    I’m going to keep thinking it’s a sure thing.

    Headline:
    Tennessee Republicans vote to keep KKK leader bust in Capitol

    Good. I hope they all get voted out of office.

    How can you call yourselves The Party of Lincoln and constantly stand up for Confederate iconography?
  • moetownmoetown Posts: 2,305
    Yeah, I’m not enthusiastic about voting for Biden, but I am enthusiastic about voting President Fuckface out of office.
  • moetownmoetown Posts: 2,305
    Pundits talk about the ‘enthusiasm gap,’ but I think most of them are confused about what Dems are enthusiastic about.

    I’ve done nothing today except lay here on the sofa scrolling through news stories and posting on crappity. I don’t need pot to be a lazy sod.
  • captqitncaptqitn Posts: 2,763
    Attaboy!! I would if I could.
  • LefunesteLefuneste Posts: 5,764
    Shouldn't you be practicing your guitar?

    Yes, that’s something I should be doing, but Zzzz...

    Still no word. On the one hand, that isn't awesome. On the other, I have come back around to feeling confident mostly thanks to taking a Xanax and chilling the fuck out.
  • moetownmoetown Posts: 2,305
    Yum, Xanax.

    It's probably connected to being suddenly not stoned, but I'm definitely feeling sadder than usual today. I had some disturbing dreams last night featuring my ex. Maybe that has something to do with it? Listened to Purple Mountains, Maybe I'm the Only One for Me, which didn't help, but to quote another Dave Berman song, "That's just the way that I feel."
  • moetownmoetown Posts: 2,305
    OK. I dragged out the trampoline and did 30 minutes of hopping. I’ve been doing strength exercise 3 days a week with push ups and pull ups every other day, but I haven’t done any bouncing since I don’t know when. Going from not doing it at all to a 30 minute session is not something I’d recommend. The last 29 minutes were somewhat agonizing. Totally kicked my ass, but I was able to lose the extra sad. Maybe I can start hopping a few days a week.

    I guess crappiteers do family stuff on Saturdays.

    Purple Mountains is terrific music but it is an express train to feeling sad.

    Yeah, I went out with Little S. and I played guitar. Sorry, Ev.
  • moetownmoetown Posts: 2,305
    No man, you should be doing stuff with Little S. on Saturday.

    Daniel Johnston is also hot wheels to sadness.

    I listened to the new Built to Spill album of D. Johnston’s songs. It’s good, although I’d probably like it more if I’d never listened to Daniel Johnston.

    Guitar practice is still happening, but I’m not spending as much time on it as before. Hitting alternating bass strings using a pick is kinda tricky. Some days I do ok, and some days I make lots of mistakes. I need to spend less time getting sucked into the news vortex on the Internets.

    If I had a nice acoustic I'd be playing more.
