Today's date is October 22nd, 2022. This is a cool date, you must admit. So I wanted to do something special.

I wonder what time it is right now. Hold on a sec. I'm gonna go check real quick. Be right back. Don't go anywhere.

Okay, it's 10:22. It's getting late. Good thing I didn't dawdle. I need to get busy right away.

» I Do Some of My Best Work When I am Trying to Impress Industrial-Strength Talent such as Yourself

Sometimes I will go back and read something I havent seen for a long time.

Here is where I am looking at something that I previously wrote. Now I am looking at it from the outside looking in, as a reader .. instead of from the inside looking out, like I do while I am writing.

Reading and writing are very different things for me.

Here is where I will sometimes see something that strikes me in such a way that I will say to the writer in me (while I am reading, not writing).

Here is where I will say to the writer in me, "Who are you, dude? Who writes like this? Who says things like that? Who are you really?"

Not always, but many times this will happen while I am writing something to an industrial-strength talent such as yourself.

Hi Lisa.

I was planning to post this entry on the equinox, which arrived last week on the 22nd of September at 6:03 PM.

Timestamp Worldclock Thursday 22 September 2022 at 9:22 pm local San Diego time

That's a cool date » 22 Sep 2022. And the autumn equinox is when the seasons change from summer to fall.

But October is the month when I posted those two entries titled »

So October is like your month. But I didn't want to wait until the 22nd.

I Feel Your Pain

The time right now is 11:43 pm here on the left coast and this page is live .. today being the 22nd of August, 2022.

You know what they say about the journey of a thousand miles » it begins with a single step.

I would not use such a cool, once-a-century date such as this on just any kind of writing.

No. Not hardly. Au contraire.

I would have to do something special on a date like today. Something extra special.

I would have to bring the kind of smoke that nobody has ever seen before. I might even have to do the impossible. (I've done it before.)

» You Know That's What Crazy People Think, Right?

I can feel something going on with her .. with industrial-strength Elena.

I know, folks, that this is exactly the kind of thing that crazy people think. I know .. but I can nevertheless still feel it. Should I indulge this insanity?

And truth be told, dear reader, I like the way it feels. I like it a lot. I mean, who wouldnt?

I can assure you that there is a part of me right now that is very happy to be flirting with Elena Fraules.

It seems too good to be true, but I'm not going to let that stop me.

» The Importance of Developing a Sense-of-Self as it Applies to the Intimate Relationship

Along these lines, I am seeing the importance of a fully-formed sense-of-self that you can feel comfortable operating in and from.

I am convinced that much of the problem you happen to find in intimate relationships springs from a self-image that does not feel up to the task before him.

Which leads him to compensate for his sense of deficiency by constructing artifices in the relationship that leverage his sense of self in dysfunctional ways.

This page continues from an entry titled » The 100-Year Anniversary of What is Generally Considered the Finest Novel Written in the English Language During the Entire Twentieth Century (22 Jan 2022).

You know, back in October 2020, I used an image of Elena Fraules sitting at a table (where she is obviously looking for me) in an entry titled » Soul Capture (1 Oct 2020).

Here is that image.

Elena Fraules looking fine, seated at an outdoor table with a glass of bubbly and a basket of bread, where she is obviously looking for me (22 Sep 2020)

She obviously does it for me .. in a big way. She knows I have a thing for her. (Diana knows what I am talking about.)

It was on that page where I addressed some gnarly topics. Where I took on some challenging concepts.

» The Saving-of-the-Soul is a Lifelong Process

It was on that page, on the page where I included an image on Elena, that I happened to address the concept of the » saving-of-the-soul .. which is something that the believer himself does.

The saving of the soul is a life-long process that can get ugly at times. It is not for the faint of heart, no. Pussies need not apply.

February 2nd, you know, will be the 100-year anniversary of Ulysses (1922), which is generally considered the finest novel written in the English langauge during the entire Twentieth century.

Ulysses by James Joyce, pub in Paris by Sylvia Beach on 2 Feb 1922, Joyce's 40th birthday, first edition copy of limited edition printing

That's a mouthful .. is it not? I am already feeling the sense of swag that must come from such a thing.

This image that I included, this is an original first-edition copy of a limited edition printing, that was published in Paris by Sylvia Beach.

» I Know Sylvia Beach (Shakespeare & Co.)

In Hemingway's Moveable Feast, you actually meet Sylvia Beach. You meet her at her bookstore, Shakespeare & Co.

That's where she was telling young Ernest to make sure he has himself a good, hot meal .. because he was looking a little thin.

This page continues from a section lifted out of an entry titled » How You Like Me Now, Girly? (1 Aug 2021) .. where I was referencing a similarly-titled song by Blackpink.

» Her First Solo Release

Oh, look at her here » Lalisa (9 Sept 2021) .. her first solo release. Wow.

Lisa from Blackpink | Lalisa song release, image from Genius lyrics page (10 Sept 2021)

She is feeling me .. in a big way. I can see that I will have to flirt with her.

I have never seen anything the likes of her before. Good thing that I just up'ed my game for Ariana.

She has never seen anything the likes of me before .. and now I am all warmed up, too.

How You Like Me Now, Girly?

The theme of this page continues from an entry titled » Now I'm Warmed Up (4 July 2021).

Seven years ago today I posted an entry titled » Flirting in the Digital Age (1 Aug 2014).

I used the 100-year anniversary of the beginning of World War One .. as the date for that entry.

"What does the beginning of World War One have to do with flirting in the digital age?" you ask?

That's a good question.

I remember how quickly that entry took me out of my comfort zone and sent me wandering into new pastures, new writing pastures .. for a number of reasons.

» Only Entry I Could Not (Did Not) Wrap

It is the only entry that I never did wrap .. that I could not complete. I simply labeled the first page » Part 1/x and the second » Part 2/x.

It is difficult to wrap an ever-expanding thing. When you finally get your writing rope wrapped around most of this thing ..

.. you find yourself standing there with the other end of your rope lying on the ground over there, and you discover that your writing has grown too large for your rope.

So you go at it again. And again. And you keep coming up short.

Failure brings lessons with it, and I did indeed learn some valuable things there. Some valuable writing lessons .. about how to better deal with topics that challenge me and demand that I up my game.

Now I'm Warmed Up

This page continues from an entry titled » The Darkness Didnt Get It (19 June 2021).

When I am really feeling myself .. when I am feeling my oats .. after I have successfully completed a complex task that is challenging and demanding and maybe even a little zeitgeisty ..

.. which means that it needs to be completed in a timely manner.

» How You Like Me Now, Girly?

This is where I will sometimes say to one of these super-hotties .. I will say, "How you like me now, girly?"

This is how I flirt with them. One of the ways. The many ways. So, so many. Wait .. what was I talking about?

Oh, yeah .. speaking of flirting with talented super-hotties in a timely fashion .. I wonder what time it is right now.

I'm-a go check real quick. Be right back. Dont go anywhere.

Time-n-date timestamp World clock San Diego 7:04 am on 4 July 2021

It's still early. Plenty of time for play and whatnot .. before the festivities begin tonight.

Or my ego might say, "Girly, you have never seen anything the likes of me before. And I'm just getting warmed up."

But while I was prepping myself to write today's entry, I said instead, "Oh, now I'm warmed up."

And you can betchur ass that my arms were cocked back when I said that.
