My fingers are sore trying to redo some John Prine stuff.

I can't believe how much my dog sleeps. I think she's only awake about 90 minutes of the day.

SHADY!

I'm glad that you're here.   I feel bad about the way things ended between us.

We know so little about you. Tell us more about the man, the myth, the legend.

Yep so after my 2 week quarantine me and Linz were reunited for the Easter long weekend. We had basically 4 exhausting days together, with a few breaks for me to stop and feed the cat (which is not a euphemism, it's me taking care of my actual feline companion.) So things are good in that respect.  She's so annoyingly sweet and positive. She's constantly reading the latest news, she's very up to date on all of the COVID stuff. While I try to keep working, she provides me with COVID news. "The stuff about the long term care facilities? Don't read it. Just... don't read it," she tells me. I go read it anyway. It makes me furious, but I can't tell her I feel furious because then she'll know that I didn't listen when she told me to not read it. So... I dunno. I pretend I don't know anything and make sad faces when she tells me the latest.

Oh yeah, my dad is in the hospital. Not for COVID, but because of kidney problems.  I inherited bad lungs from dad, now I am wondering if I inherited bad kidneys as well. I'm barely on speaking terms with my parents. So this isn't super emotional for me. But wondering how much more genetic junk I've inherited is a little stressful.

"I'm Rick James, ****."  Google it, Michael.  I don't think you're fully part of the Interwebs until you've seen Charlie Murphy's "True Hollywood Stories" starring David Chappelle as Rick James.

"CHARLAYYYY MURPHAYY!!!"

Once of the truly iconic videos from the earlier ages of the internet, when videos going "viral" was still a new notion.  In the same rarified air as the SNL "Cowbell" sketch, the Superfriends "WASSAAAP!!!" video, and "All Your Base".

So dad is home from the hospital now. He's not dead, which is good I suppose.  They used laser beams to fix his kidney, or something like that.

We had our second family counseling session and I am hoping that the therapist is thinking we're wasting our money.

The issue of me throwing dirty yogurt cups in the sink has been mediated...l  ::)

But I care... It's just that it seems that we will spend $1000 discussing... As we fix things as we always have...

So, uh...

 ...my boss's wife had this idea that she wants to introduce me to someone.   This isn't a first... lots of people have tried to play matchmaker for me.  What's unique is that this is the first time someone has offered to introduce me to a woman.

I have had a strange tingly feeling for about 4 hours.  Not at the idea of meeting potentially a new partner. This isn't my first rodeo. It's different, hard to put into words. I feel ... accepted?

People I have worked with for a while and feel comfortable with know that I prefer to be with women... my first serious girlfriend even came to a company Christmas party one year. Nobody has said anything negative, at least while I was in earshot. Everybody is polite and tolerant and I even get some good-natured teasing from time to time. So it's not that I have felt negative feelings from my co-workers.  But this was different. This wasn't just tolerance, this was someone reaching out and acknowledging and accepting and supporting me for what I am, and it felt strangely wonderful in a way I had never expected.  A half hour after we had talked, I replayed the conversation in my head, and almost cried from happiness or relief or something. I felt as if some kind of weight had been removed from me. I didn't know I needed this in my life.   


So that lady died unexpectedly this week. I'm kind of in shock over it.  I wasn't close with her, but it still hit pretty hard.

I heard that it was a gall bladder thing that went untreated until way too late. With the covid situation, people don't want to be a burden on the medical system so they are keeping their aches and pains to themselves. People aren't going to see the doctor even when they should.
