DAY 135

Drove back from Rockville, feel as though I've driven back from Pittsburgh.

Saturday, May 29, 2010

DAY 134

We are into Memorial Day weekend. Do I need to feel guilty about wishing people "happy" Memorial day?

Friday, May 28, 2010

WEEK 22

Beautiful weather for the most part, but still feeling kind of tired. And the oil spill in the Gulf has gone on as long as the biblical flood. That and this month's death still has me thinking of death, grief and parallel universes among other things. Or rather obsessing over them.

I'M IMPRESSED

The PEPCO guy replied to my tweet and asked if I had power. Of course I had to resort to using the word "fuck."

KUDOS

To the guys at the Connecticut Avenue BP-Amoco station.

janedoe@seductive.com
DAY 133

More than nine hours without power. Fuck you, PEPCO.

MADE MY DAY

Having someone you went to elementary school with refer to you as "awesome" is awesome.

JOISEY BOWL

So it looks as though Meadowlands Stadium will be the venue for the 2014 Superbowl. Why not Lambeau Field?

LOST IN PURGATORY

I was never a big "Lost" fan, but with the end of the series and a recent death I have been thinking about the show. And the idea that it might be purgatory: http://www.losttvfans.com/page/Purgatory

So what is your deal anyway? Are you looking for a date or an interview?

DAVE'S WORLD

I knew Dave Barry was a great guy, and here is more proof: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/marystrunck/journal

Bohannon says "Yeah, Dave is awesome. Just had him on the show the other night.
But he doesn't have a fine ass."
LOVE IS IN THE AIR

But the wrong kind. And so is mold. And pollen.
WORTH THE PRICE OF ADMISSION
Mac's at 6:30 AM in my neighbourhood = freakshow:

1) A couple my age, no wedding rings, all over each other. Neither was very attractive.
2) The woman in front of me in line with hair dyed a weird shade of red-blonde, orange-coloured lipstick, turquoise eyeshadow, multiple piercings and a neck tattoo.
3) A guy behind me with a flourescent orange T-shirt.
DAY 130

Musta been a wild night in Adams Morgan last night.

Monday, May 24, 2010

DAY 129

Still coming to grips with a recent death. Am now able to pray for the deceased, his widow and child.

DAY 128

Went to a party with a "gypsy" theme last night. Most of the people there were white Americans. Wonder if Romany ever hold parties with a "white people" theme.

WEEK 21

Beautiful weather for most of the week, up and down market, feeling tired, sore throat a lot of the week.

janedoe@seductive.com
DAY 126

"Requiem æternam dona eis,
Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis."

"Eternal rest grant unto them,
O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them."

May G-d have mercy on your soul, because I sure as hell am having trouble doing so.

DEATHBLOG

Got news of a death a couple hours ago, am processing, thinking about death. And life.
DAY 125

The Alpine restaurant closed last week. We lived in one of the houses directly behind it. R and I went there with our prom dates, T gave J her engagement ring there and we had my massage school graduation dinner there.

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

DAY 124

Trying to get as much sleep as I can, resting up for the big weekend.

DAY 123

Relapse. And my census crew leader has a nasty stomach bug.

Monday, May 17, 2010

DAY 122

"Garp was convinced that the mainstream of his fans consisted of waifs, lonely children, retarded grownups, cranks and only occasional members of the citizenry who were not afflicted with perverted taste."

John Irving

Alas, I feel that way about a lot of the people with whom I deal.

DAY 121

Spent most of the weekend at the Andrews AFB air show.There's something inherently sexy about military aircraft and weaponry, especially weapons strapped to the thighs. I tried not to stare.

Hmmmm. In the last three weeks I have been to one correspondent's dinner, three embassies and one Air Force base.

Friday, May 14, 2010

WEEK 20

Quiet compared to last week, but I needed the rest as last week was a big one and next week will be, too. Over the last couple weeks I have learned to not take people or things for granted. Ever. And it only makes me wonder what REALLY goes on in some of the fanciest of houses.

janedoe@seductive.com
MEDICAL FACTOID

"Emesis" and "vomitus" can be used interchangeably. We learned that in massage school.

janedoe@seductive.com
DAY 119

We had a storm tonight. The weather guy on Channel 9 was warning people to "stay away from windows." Reminded me of John Irving's "keep passing the open windows."

DAY 118

Not much going on -- resting up for the weekend.

X-OFFENDER

Said sex offender is a frequent caller to our station: http://www.wusa9.com/news/local/story.aspx?storyid=101245&catid=188

What they don't mention is the stroke he suffered was from smoking crack.

EN FRANÇAIS, S'IL VOUS PLAIT

It's so lovely to hear people speak French, even if they're just talking about government stuff.

janedoe@seductive.com
DAY 117

"Cerumen" ("ear shit") is a word from massage school that is coming back to haunt me. We learned about eye boogers, too, but that term escapes me.

HOLY MACKERAL

People are actually THANKING me for working on the Census.

MR. BROWN IS STEPPING DOWN
(Referring to the British Prime Minister)

Does anyone else think this sounds like something Dr. Seuss would write?

And can he moo, too?


DAY 116

Beau Biden is apparently in Christiana Hospital after having suffered a mild stroke. I had at least one ultrasound there and my ex's father died there. Hard to believe he's 41. He was 21 when I first met him. Tempus fugit.

WEEK 19

Beautiful weather, a terrible week on Wall Street, a lousy cold (allergy?) for me. Hanging in there as best as I can.

janedoe@seductive.com
DAY 112

Got a plug of snot in the back of my head that won't loosen up, despite putting eucalyptus oil and pepper up my nose.

Started field work with the Census Bureau. Anything more and I am subject to fine and or imprisonment.

DAY 107

Had to get fingerprinted again. I can relate to the fingerprinting scene in "Raising Arizona." It's actually kind of sexy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IaMenWnYgPo
