Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained

Happy Birthday AGW I am so sorry I forgot to mention you in my last blog....Grandpa I would also like to apologize to you. I misunderstood the actual date of your birthday and I apologize. If you want both you and your friends can flog me with a cat o'nine tails when I get back home. I am a bad person and I am sorry. So as I am sure you all know by now... the Bengal’s lost. 17-31 Steelers... sigh... So I paid the Sexy Idahoan. Obviously I was sulking. So yeah this morning SI asked me if I wanted to bet against the Steelers again this week... I told him football is dead to me. Is that bad sportsmanship? Eh what ever... So my whole not sleeping caught up with me today... When I came back from breakfast I laid down to stretch a little bit... That was at about eight this morning... I woke up around four thirty this afternoon.... that’s like eight and a half hours... So now I am wide awake... although I don't have a lot to talk about. I have a question... How many of you make your bed right when you get up in the morning? I mean literally wake up and start straightening the blankets... I do that on a normal basis and today I realized I was doing it despite the obvious pee dance that I was performing. Do you have any idea how difficult it is to make your bed when you have to pee??? And it isn't like the bathroom is just across the hall from me. The closest restroom is at lest 200 feet from here.... and the one that I prefer to use is more than twice that. so instead of waking up and walking like a normal person to the bathroom ... I make my bed (with its oh so cool Spiderman bed set) and than I do the pee dance all the way to the bathroom where at least once, someone will stop me and want to talk about something completely inconsequential (when you have to pee everything is inconsequential) As I mentioned before I have been watching Charmed for the past couple of days. And the more I think about it the more I wish I had some kind of mental power like telekinesis or the ability to freeze time (when I brought this up around here I learned that most people would abuse the power to freeze time to use it for their benefit. i.e. gambling, cheating in some form or another.) has there ever been an ability that you wished you had that you thought would make your day better??? I have wanted to be able to freeze time ever since that girl Evie could do it on Out of this world... I haven’t seen that show in like years and still the theme song is stuck in my head (Would you like to swing on a star, or carry moon beams home in a jar... or would you rather live on earth.) You know one day I am going to wake up and realize that fiction is just that and boy am I going to be bummed....

Random fact of the Blog:
Congressional and Nobel Prize Winners' medals are made of solid gold, Olympic gold medals are gold plated silver... And suddenly everyone understands Tonya Harding just a little better....

You are not a bad person!!! You are just "not perfect" as we all are "not perfect".
You have no idea how much troublesome laughter you caused with your "pee dance" story. We laughed so hard we couldn't stop, even when I was trying to put the glaucoma drops in my eyes and got the drop on my eyelid instead of in my eye, and, even when I was trying to put my sleep t-shirt over my head and hit my elbow on the oh so sharp edge of the dresser. I was doubled over with pain and laughter and Gramps kept saying through his laughter "I'm really not laughing at your pain, I'm laughing at the fact that you are in such pain and laughing so hard that neither of us can stop." Gramps has now placed a black duct tape "X" in the middle of the bedroom floor between the computer and the dresser, and I am supposed to stand on the "X" when I am dressing (or undressing).
Gramps has completed his first full week back at work and is a little tired but feeling good. We are going to the annual installation dinner for the chorus tomorrow night, at Ft. Shafter.
More later.
