Ain’t that always the case? Time to write, nothing to write about. Stuff to write about, no time to write. Still haven’t heard anything from the home office since they told me to be ready for lots of work, and that clients had been requesting my services specifically (apparently I have a rep for doing good work). I’m also still waiting for some backorders of parts for the Sprint-T. The bad part about the backorders is leaving the money in my bank because in my mind I spent that money ages ago, but I don’t get charged until it ships. So I have about $300 just sitting there that I already spent, but hasn’t been taken out yet. I mean, I placed the order in early June, but here it is middle of August and that money has just been sitting there taunting me.
Money and I have a contentious relationship. There are lots of things to spend it on but there’s never enough to spend. Most times I barely have enough to spend on the “needs”, and hardly any to spend on the “wants”. But somehow we manage. A big problem is stuff that when done regularly is a “want”, but put off too long becomes a “need”, like getting a haircut, or getting my toes done. I mean sure I can live indefinitely without getting my hair cut, but eventually my appearance with take a hit and I start looking like a homeless person no matter how often I wash it. I can go several months between pedicures but eventually my toenails get caught on the insides of my shoes and I can’t walk. One wonders what our ancient ancestors did before the technology to trim toenails existed, particularly since the method most likely used for fingernails requires either incredible flexibility or cooperation for toenails. Biting fingernails is easy, biting toenails is difficult to impossible without a partner. But then again the reason why excessively long toenails are a problem for modern man was not a thing for ancient man, closed-toe shoes for the most part did not exist prior to the creation of cutting tools that could also be used to trim toenails.
And I have just about bored myself to sleep, so I’m putting this to bed now.
