Friday By The Numbers

1. Are you getting tired of hearing about my sleep problems? I would If I were you all. It's a major deal when you are going through it, though. I slept on and off last night. The RLS was there on and off. I did get my Ambien prescription filled this morning, so I will be resting well this weekend.

2. The weather is supposed to be nice for my hiking and bird counting tomorrow afternoon. High of 48 expected, and partly sunny. I'm looking very forward to it. I know that birding sounds a bit nerdy, but what the hell.

3. Do you feel akward if you wave to someone and they don't see you, but someone else sees it? I do. Akward.

4. It's a slow night at work tonight. We all know how I feel about that. Yuck. Maybe I'll get some writing done.

5. I'm beginning to think that I need a hair cut. The sides kind of stick out as the hair goes past my ears. And the back is very curly. Still, I don't want to just yet. In a way, I like it how it is. I guess that's what matters most, right?

6. I just read an article about this poor guy who died of a heart attack at his desk at work and no one noticed for five days. Truly unbelieveable. How could you not notice? Do you know what happens to your body when you pass? That poor bastard.

7. Just when I get a little money- my expensive guitar amplifier that I've had for years is not working. The sound cuts in and out, but the power is still on. That will probably cost several hundred dollars to fix. I really can't afford it. Not right now.

8. Then there is this: According to PSE&G, I used $450 worth of gas and elecrtricity last month. Simply not possible. Billy Boy has not been home, it's just been me and I still have my handy-dandy electronic programable thermostat set to 70 degrees. It has to be a big error. I'm sure that this will be a lot of fun to deal with.

9. Everyone have a great, great weekend. I know that I plan on it.

  2. Hope you get a good night sleep now that your Rx is filled. If you like your hair the way it is, then don't cut it. You're the one who has to live with it. If you're thinking that when a person passes away, that all their muscles relax, and they wet themselves, among other things, that's not true. I've been around people when they died, and that never happened. That's an old wives tales. Have a great weekend. Hugs.

  3. Bobby- Thank you very much! I'll email you directly about the amp. I know you are right about the sleeping. I always sleep soundly the night after a workout. I wish I could get to the gym every day. I kind of do have a lot on my plate. It's not easy being single. In fact I don't like it that much. I've been single for the last three years after being married for 26, and it's no picnic. There is work and all of it's pressures, the long commute, the dogs to take care of, the house and property. Then making times for friends and leasure. I could go on and on, but I won't. Again, thanks.

    Xanadu- That is what I was referring to. It's what I had always heard. You see, I've never been in the room when someone has actually died. Maybe I've been sheltered, or just lucky. I stand corrected. You have a great weekend, also.

  4. Well it does happen eventually, but not always RIGHT AWAY. Especially if it's someone that's et's say been on an IV for days/weeks, or they have been so sick they've not been eating or drinking much, etc. But I've been told it can take more than an hour or two, as well.

    Either way, can you imagine being the type of person that nobody notices is gone for five days in their OWN PLACE OF WORK? That makes me sad for the guy, even if he was a jerk or something.
