Fuck It .. Let's Do This Thing

You didnt think I would let our anniversary pass without notice .. did you, girly?

Especially seeing how it was such a cool date » 19 Mar 2021, with the sequential » 19 » 20 » 21.

Timestamp Worldclock San Diego Friday, 19 March 2021 at 3:19 am

I didnt forget .. even though I might have "a lot on my plate" right now .. as both cousin Patti and my therapist have said.

I guess I do have a lot on my plate. But I tend to respond well to plates piled with these kinds of things.

I am actually feeling happy of late .. for a number of reasons. (More on that later.)

I even had the thought a few days ago that I might be feeling "too happy" and maybe I should cut back, or even quit taking the antidepressants altogether. All the meds. I mean, why pussy around?

Now there is a thought that I have never had before. It's a foolish thought, to be sure .. because you never want to change anything with your meds without first consulting a trained mental health professional.

And I have already begun tapering down my dose of Zoloft .. for a few months now .. from 200 to 150.

I normally use the 11th of January (1-11, or 'one-one-one') as a place, or as a convenient time, where I will challenge myself. Where I will attempt something I have never attempted before.

Speaking of the date, I wonder what time it is. Hold on a sec. I'm going to go check. Dont go anywhere. I'll be back in a jiffy.

Okay, I'm back. Looks like it's 1:11 pm. Here on the Left coast.

Time-n-date timestamp Worldclock San Diego Monday, 11 Jan 2021 at 1:11 pm

It's later than I thought.

Now I will be the first to admit that sometimes I bite off more than I can chew, particularly when I might be trying to impress a super-hottie.

Now You've Really Gone and Done It

Girly, what am I going doing with you? (I mean, that I havent done already.)

You are in so much trouble, young lady. You cannot possibly imagine how much trouble you are in right now.

You girls with tattoos .. I shouldve known better. You seem to actually enjoy getting in trouble.

Einstein was always getting in trouble, too, you know. So at least you're in good company.

After I finished viewing the trailer for your Netflix special (releasing tomorrow) I thought, "Now you've really done it."

Girly, you know that you cannot be doing shit like this ..

Ariana's Winter Solstice, Grand Conjunction, Netflix Special - excuse me, i love you - on 21 Dec 2020

.. and think you will get no response. No retaliation. Certainly not with something this provocative.

Ariana lays back lusciously and deliciously during her winter solstice netflix special excuse me I love you (10 Dec 2020)

You know this better than anybody.

When I saw this clip above, where you do that lay-back thing that you do .. when I saw that clip, I started thinking about things.

About this thing, and that thing, and, of course, the other thing.

Before I knew it, I was a million miles away. Maybe more. I wouldnt be surprised. I mean that is certainly the way it felt.

And I would be lying if I said that I was in any kind of hurry to get back, either. No. I was definitely diggin' it out there.

Would you like to know, Ariana, what kinds of things I was thinking about out there? Out there in La La Land.

I feel confident that you would indeed like to know.

I very much feel provoked when I see you doing this. This kind of thing, where I feel provoked, this makes me feel aggressive. And aggressive can easily become predatory under the right circumstances.

What do you know about evoking these things?

Soul Capture

It is actually still only the 30th of September right now.

Timestamp Wednesday Sept 30 2020 10:02 PM PDT San Diego

It won't be the 1st of October for a few more hours.

I was outside a little while ago and it was still very warm. The air is warm and dry and still. It reminded me of the nights I spent in the desert.

Hotel California weather. Colitas werent the only thing I was smelling those nights.

» Held Up Again by Super-Hotties

You know, I tried to capture this image here at exactly 10:01, as a way of mirroring the date, which is also 10-01.

(It's a quirky thing of mine.)

But I missed it. I was late by a minute. I was busy flirting with a super-hottie, and she wouldnt let me go.

I said, "I need to go. I need to go chronicle the end of the world."

She said, "Just five more minutes."

I said, "You said that an hour ago."

She said, "I know, but this time I really mean it."

I am not making excuses here, and blaming super-hotties .. but this is why I am late.

I won't mention any names, but she knows who she is.

I will try not to let it happen again .. because I know how important timing can be. (Eddie Glenn knows what I am talking about.)

<ignore this intentional body-text marker>

Today is actually the 13th of September, but I want to get a week's worth of a running headstart on 20 Sept 2020 .. because I have a few things I want to say. And this could take a while.

You cannot possibly imagine how much I enjoyed writing today's title. There is just something about telling assholes to go fuck themselves .. that I find so wonderfully therapeutic. Cathartic, even.

John Oliver knows what I am talking about.

Everybody knows that repression plays a major role in a number of psychological disorders and mental illnesses.

Maybe this is why I am feeling so psychologically healthy right now. Heck, I might even skip my anti-depressants today .. I am feeling so happy right now.

I am going to have so much fun writing this that I can hardly stand it. I wouldve done this long ago .. had I known it was going to feel this good. Live-n-learn.

<ignore this intentional body-text marker>

Today is 20 August 2020. I could not resist posting an entry with such a rare, cool date.

Next year we will have » 19 August 2021. That is also a cool date.

But in order to get 3-of-a-kind on the date in August, you will have to wait 101 years for the year 2121 [ 21 Aug 2121 ].

I wonder if anybody took notice of the date back in 1919? [ 19 Month 1919 ].

We should do something extra special today .. as a way to help celebrate the day. Just you-n-me .. nobody else.

» Exploring the Entire Range of Moral Experience

I was thinking earlier about doing a little exploring today. I always enjoy the exhilarating sense-of-adventure that comes from exploring new things. From exploring new places.

Particularly when I am able to hook up with a beautiful creature who isnt afraid to join me .. and who doesnt mind getting in trouble now-n-again.

The last time I set out to explore new things .. I was joined by this dancer-chick. Ooh la la .. let me tell you. What a thoroughbred.

It always helps, I have found, to have along a super-hottie whenever you are exploring such realms. (Indiana Jones knows what I am talking about.)

» Fond Memories of Intimate Times

One of my favorite explorations .. was into a question that arose from a genuine curiosity. (On 23 Feb 2017.) She has been such a trooper. She seems to evoke a different part of me.

If you happen to run into her while you are out-n-about, tell her that I am sucking on a Godiva chocolate right now ..

I somehow feel like I am cheating on her .. every time I tear open another one of these wrappers and pop the heart-shaped chocolate in my mouth.

And especially while I am sucking on the creamy center.

For what it's worth .. time right now is » 2:20 PM, here on the left coast. And this page is live.

Timestamp 2:20 PM for Saturday, 20 June 2020, San Diego time, summer solstice

Today is the summer solstice. The word solstice means 'sun stopping.'

This is the exact moment when the sun appears to reach its northerly-most point of 'travel.'

World map clearly identifies Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn

( It's really just a cool illusion .. because you and I here on planet earth, we are actually the ones doing the traveling. )

I am talking about the point-of-travel where the sun arrives directly over southern Baja California.

This is the point where it comes closest to those of us living here to the north  ..

Looking along the line of the Tropic of Cancer at the monument marker in southern Baja California

.. and then appears to turn around and head back south .. to the distant land of Capricorns .. that time is » 2:43 PM. So we got another 23 mins or so.

Time stamp 11:51 pm Pacific Daylight (13 June 2020) and this page is live.

I have not yet written anything here .. but I will be very shortly.

"What am I planning to write in this entry?" you ask? .. here in this page with such an inviting title?

I am sure that you will not be able to handle it.

<ignore this intentional body-text marker>

It probably matters to nobody but me .. but the HTML for this page was posted live at 11:58 PM on 1 June 2020 (Pacific daylight).

Time-n-date stamp 11:58 PM on 1 June 2020 (PDT)

My previous entry was posted on 19 Mar 2020. It is titled » Extreme Levels of Inequality Exert Unsustainable Levels of Stress Upon the Very Fabric of Society.

As coincidence would have it, this is the same day that the governor of California, Gavin Newsom, issued an order to shutdown the state in response to the CoVid-19 pandemic .. the first such state to do so.
