How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

Today has the makings of a good day only by default and not actually because it has earned the merit... yet. The reason? I have 3 days off and thanksgiving is one of those. I havn't had 3 days off for awhile. I feel like a child on the last day of school before summer vacation. I had to come to work early today. I woke up and got out of bed early, made some coffee, and chomped on some pop tarts. I feel better for having done more than drag myself out of bed, put water in my hair and run to the bus. I even had time to take a shower and listen to Neu while sweeping the leaves off of my porch. I felt very domestic and accomplished. Chris came and picked me up. Ichi wouldn't come inside this morning (it was sunny and she was sitting on the neighbors porch mocking me and sniffing the neighbors cat's smells)They have a big white cat and a bigger headed maybe just as fat black cat both inside alternately staring at me then Ichi as if to say,"Scum!" Anyways, Chris came and picked me up and we listened to the Beach boys Smiley smile and half of Wild Honey. Good stuff. So anyways we get to the work and Chris realizes he forgot his work shirt, luckily someone else left an extra one on the coat rack... problem: It's huge he looks like David Bryne in Stop Making sense with the giant suit(see picture below) Further more, that's work and that's my day I'm excited to say hello to Madeline tonight. We have plans for a thanksgiving eve dinner, I'm excited to eat cranberry sauce from a can (my mom tends to make it fresh and it's just not the same.. good.. but no jello like consistency.)
my only bad news is that my sinuses and throat are dry and a I have a gnarly case of post coffee jitters. One more thing, I saw "shim" today. I think shim is a she but they have every mannerism that a man has and it wears big 80s suits like David bowie. Old looking and with a mullet. I don't know what her job is except that she wears a badge, talks to people, and smokes cigarettes. I think she's important though because she's always looking down on people, but maybe that's just because she's taller than everyone else. It's been a long time since I've seen her but I feel more comfortable knowing that she's around. The world really does need people like her in order to continue turning.
