I hope so too...

In the mean time, my sister has her old best friend from high school over at our place, she hasn't changed a bit!

I'm sorry to hear about your woes Bonny. Hope it gets sorted and you are on the mend.

I'm okay. Working, paying bills, keeping the lights on.

Just had an exam and in spite of all the stress it went quite well. That's one down and one to go and then I can get back to my music again.

Went to my eye doctor's today. She found my astigmatism is not the cause for my recent problems, but thinks that it's been there for a long time and that it's why my left eye is dominant. So she's on a dead track. I had retina photographs, but there was nothing special on it. Next Friday (the 13th, yes...) I'm getting another test, for the vision field.

Welp... got a busy day tomorrow, today I folded a lot of cranes.

Today I had class, got to visit a stylist and had an application talk with Manpower. Not every woman gets two pairs of shoes in one day!

After almost 11 years in this neighborhood in Pleasanton CA I have to move out. My landlords are selling the place and gave me very little notice.
My family is going to have to all go their own ways now. Both kids are adults but still this sucks.

I have decided to move back to my hometown of Martinez CA as I have childhood friends there and not many here in this town. Plus there is a pretty good music scene there and I will be able to play music again.

I do have one restaurant that is interested in meeting me and giving me a try out.

I will be staying in a friends garage until I can find a place.

Very unsettling Huck, but who knows what might come out of it.

On another note altogether, I'm totally shattered about Paris. My wife and I were on our way to Alenšon while the Hebdo thing was happening and arrived to the reactions of my relatives there. We had just been in Paris for a week, two weeks earlier. Now this.

People are banging on about peace time attacks and acts of war, but, since at least the end of the Cold War, the West has been involved almost perpetually in wars somewhere in the world other than the West, with no casualties for themselves except soldiers. For many countries, growing up with death and destruction is the norm and that destruction is caused by weapons made in the West. Surely we must expect that there will be consequences for this behaviour. These people are nutcases but what situation has created them?

The second world war, was a war that led to massive suffering on all sides. The wars we have been involved in since, have been very different, and very one sided, and that is why I believe this kind of terrorism is on the rise.

that's exactly what I was telling to a buddy of mine on another forum, when the west will stop playing with fire, perhaps they won't get burnt anymore, but natural resources are so important to us...

Plook at zappa.com seems to think that all we need to do is isolate them and then blow them all up. I've always found him a wee bit ignorant, but that takes the cake.

Anyway, I need to concentrate, my next exam is only three days away and I'm nowhere near as prepared as I was with the last one.

Good luck with the work Poly!

First day of work at external location - spent 8 hours ironing. I'm now the Ironing Master, not to be confused with the Irony Master, that is still my achilles heel. And I only took a couple of burns for damage. Less damage than I got from wearing heels earlier.

It is a heel-face-turn, yes. It's about 45 mins of cycling away and since I have to be there at 8 and wanted to take my tendency for getting lost into account, I had to get up at 6AM. It's a major company called Ergon who make a fortune by getting free labour like that.

hey! have you ever tried wearing those big foam sneaker-shoes? I call them boats, instead of boots and You'd have to get used to the bigger shoe/ toe-point ... but that might be easier than high-heels? :bouncy:

Poly - how about before WW2? Between the wars and just before WW1 there was the mass colonisation which left us with a fair share of tensions in the colonies in Africa and Asia. And WW1 was an extension of the Franco-Prussian war and the fall of the Ottoman empire.

I was not intending to come across as absolute. Many an imperialist war has been won without weapons, requiring merely a suit, a briefcase, a little paperwork and a pen. The point we are discussing is the current upsurge of terrorism and trying to make sense of that, but yes, imperialism has been around for a long time along with various reactions to it.

Anyway, I finished my last exam for the year this morning and all of sudden felt somewhat empty.

Found Danzig's album 4 in a second-hand shop today but decided to hold with buying it until I'd tried listening to it first. Am trying it out now, can't say I like it.

Just busying myself with all the boring chores I've been putting off while studying. I'm just working my way through all my online accounts that use a certain email address which I'm going to dump because it gets drowned in spam. Told you it was boring ...
