Two For One!

Two posts in one day? My what has happened to me??

I'm alone on a Friday night, that's what happened to me. The Lover is back home celebrating his mother's birthday and it just didn't work out for me to go with him. I tend to not go home with him whenever he does for several reasons.

So this weekend it's just me and you! Plus maybe the dog. Which I just bathed at 8 o'clock on a Friday night because my life is just that exciting. I can hear the old time music outside my windows of the classic car show that gathers every Friday evening. It's a reminder that oh I haven't gone to shoot any of them next to their cars in a loooooooooong time. Meh, if I went it'd most likely be like the other times with everyone ignoring me as I take amazing pictures of their cars. Oh well.

I'm sipping on a tall glass of skim milk because I never drink alone. Hell I hardly drink when with others! If I do drink I usually get toasted to the point where the walls jump in the way of my path. It's probably funny to others but not so much to me, especially the next morning.

I'm also in my pajamas. Curled up in my recliner in front of a tv that rests while The Lover is away. If I get really desperate I may turn it on to drown out the background but usually it's just silence in these walls. I've tried to follow tv shows and I always find that life intrudes the regular scheduled episodes and end up missing too many to care. Of course there's that new fangled dvr that we did indeed own at one time but that can be synonymous to a ball and chain. We started dvring so many shows that we were always playing catch up and always watching the tube. Nah, no thanks.

I wouldn't even have cable if I didn't think it was a good way to find out what was happening locally right now. I remember wanting to watch the weather channel when we first moved because all the local news station websites sucked donkey butt.

I think this means I'm old. I'm surprisingly okay with that.

On nights that I'm stuck alone, I feel that music soothes the savage beast. Especially oldies, that make me reminisce of the days of
