I am in the process as we speak of tempting them back with bits of breadcrumbs and worms and such, so things should be back to "normal" any day now. Meanwhile I am attempting absolutely no frustrating technological things and I am avoiding trying to untangle anything (cords, shoelaces, wires, etc.) I am not getting on the scale or checking the calorie content of my food. Yes, Fuck Menopause, indeed. Here Shen, Here Shenny Shen Shen!
Meanwhile, I am taking advantage of my lack of shen by filling the spot where they used to be with creativity in the form of writing. I decided to try my hand at songwriting, mostly because a live-in musician comes in very handy while engaging in these kinds of pursuits - as many of you, but not all of you know, a good music producer can make turn water into wine, or perhaps in some cases, poop into gold. whatever.
Now, on a totally unrelated note but of interest to those of you who like to keep up with the latest trends, during our last visit with Dave's kids, his son let us in on a fun, relatively harmless activity called "That Guy." This, from Urban Dictionary is a definition of the term "That Guy" used in this particular context:
So, here is a picture of Dave doing his best That Guy Face. I think it's funny, but you know, I'm a bit immature.
During the kids' visit, we took them out to dinner and while the family across from us was taking picture after picture (said pictures, unfortunately all included the family matriarch who, quite frankly looked like Gary Oldman in Bram Stoker's Dracula, and I'm not talking about the totally cool young Dracula, with the great top hat and awesome blue sunglasses, but the old Dracula with that ridiculous white wig - only hers wasn't a wig and it was shoe-polish black.) During this photo shoot, Dave's son, yes, chip off the old block as they say, was doin' da That Guy Ting all over da place.
It was awesome.
Ok, so it's obvious that I don't have a particular subject for this blog entry and I am more or less, rambling I will do you all a favor and shut the fuck up now.
Enjoy your day.
