Not your average lap pet!

While I was working out on my hike yesterday, I was heading home when I stumbled across this little guy. I wonder if these are more useful than a club to prevent your car from getting stolen??

Sometimes, no matter what kind of day, even a good day, i just feel so isolated.

I hate it when i feel this way.  Nostalgic, lonely, antsy, despondent and yet at the same time hopeful.  I think also a huge contributing part is bordom and the stagnent place my life and especially my social life is in.

Usually… in fact i would say about 90% of the time i am quite content. I am usually EXTREMELY independent.  I like to do my own thing and in fact am a sort of loner (that does not count against my kitty though… we are a team!  Except when people are around!  lol).  However, once in a while, i get so depressed about the friends that i have had and the friends that i have lost and the friends that i am surrounded by now.  It all just gets a bit gloomy and overbearing on my poor little brain.

Justify SF buying a GAS STATION to make a PARK in the dense-d parked part of sf….??

I came across this article today talking about having the city of SF buy a gas station on the south east corner of Divisadero st. and Fell St.  This gas station sits directly across the street from a BP and adjacent to a Shell.

Here is the full article for you if you want to check it out.  http://district5diary.blogspot.com/2013/03/plan-to-turn-arco-station-into-park.html)

Gee… Isnt it interesting that they are trying to buy the busiest AND CHEAPEST of 3 gas stations on that block and the only one that is not owned by the hugest oil companies on the planet.

If they (SF) are going to buy a gas station, go across the street to the BP on the west side of Divis.

Since that one changed from being a 76 station, it is the most expensive and the least busy of the gas stations on the whole block. Not to mention that the Bi-rite would then have some adjacent land for people to buy a picnic and eat lunch.

Let that end of fell, oak, divis and scott be the gas end. That way you keep it all on one side of the street on a block that has little in beauty going for it since the other 2/3 is a shell and a carwash.

I just do not find it surprising that they want to eliminate the markedly cheapest gas in that whole part of town. Plus… When did we have enough money to buy a gas station (to make a park 2 blocks from GG park and 1 block from Alamo square. Not like they are lacking in parks around those parts!) Fishy!!

Something smells fishy… AGAIN!!  surprise.. no.  sad face… :(

It has been like over a month but I AM BACK and with only maybe a couple hours before the end of the world!

 

 

 

 

The past month plus has been a very surreal experience for me.  Two months ago, i had 2 perfectly working computers.  Within 2 weeks I had zero.  The last month and a half i have gotten to learn the jump in with both feet kind of learning curve, just how much my life and my anchoring to my life is based through my computer.

I have just been sort of drifting this last month and a half.  I have been scattered, disconnected, out of touch and just kinda unhinged through this time.  I have also had to do a lot of traveling back and forth to see my dad which really throws off my whole life schedule… but with no computer, no blog, no writing, no photos uploaded, no local news & no easy typing (the reading on my iphone was not ideal at this age either!)… I had nothing to anchor me down and so i just kinda spun.

The first section home between the first and second trip i partied my ass off.  Staying up till dawn and just basically partying like i did in my early 20′s.  It was fun, but boy oh boy did my room get messed up.  I still have not fully recovered from it!  All of the packing and unpacking and present wrapping and computer parts and machines in various states of repair has not helped the mess get fixed either though.

The next time i came home, i knew i was not going to party like i had the weeks before.  That second period i was home, i tried to get up motivation so i restarted more seriously my exercise plan.  Hiking longer and more regularly.  It feels a lot better living life with exercise but it did not bring back my motivation.  However, i did pick back up… and thanks to my friend Kenny, broke through my block & started drawing again, the first time in many months.  It felt good.

The other thing i got back in with was cooking.  It is the holidays so i made cookies and fudge and soup and cupcakes.  It has been fun and, surprisingly, i have not had an unquenching urge to eat all that i have just cooked.  It has been more fun feeding those around me which sure helps my waist line!

I am absolutely rusty and in all honesty, am totally surprised that i did not fuck my macbook up completely.  I thought i had.  I will go into detail the perils we survived to get us back online in a future post, but,  It is late and it may be the end of the world tomorrow and if it is, i dont want to spend it in silly details of the luckiest girl with the toughest laptop in the world and instead tell you all just how much i have missed my place here with you.  I have missed the conversations and the points of view.  I have missed the friendship and the fantastic attitudes of you all.  I am SO glad to be back to writing for you all!  Like i said, i was not really thinking that i would have a working laptop tonight, so i have sorta had to wedge my brain back into the thinking and typing mode which has been on hiatus now for a while, but i am ready to start sweeping the cobwebs and getting back to the grind.

On one last note, i leave again Sunday evening for my dads for Christmas.  This is awesome and at the same time sad for me because on Christmas eve of this year, it is going to be my little baby kitty Arthur and my one year anniversary.  Unfortunately for us both, he will be home alone with my roommates on this day.  I think i will be way more saddened on this day than he.  But it does make me a little sad that we will not be spending our one year marker together, so for that reason, i am dedicating this posting to him.  Here is to another year and as much progress as we have made this for next!

I love you Arthur!
