there are just some words in the slang vocabulary that seem to really make sense. the British have the term “gutted,” the Japanese really have no word for “no.” and in the united states, we really are pretty good at taking something from somewhere else and putting a twist on it, usually that adding hot sauce, lard, or sugar. lately, we excel at being a global entertainment freakshow with the behavior of our president and the Kardashian family is called, “ American royalty” in today’s NY tabloid.
when I think of yesterday, and all the strange workarounds, odd wasted time from changed minds and missing parts and put it in a bowl. you get a national, “sh*tshow.”
heck, just my stuff alone was a nice pile of merde, but when you pull back to a larger perspective in the USA and that someone actually published the Kardashian family as royalty – well, pt Barnum is probably smiling from wherever he is in the afterlife…”yup, now that is all one big sh*tshow! the merchandising possibilities are endless!”
what can I say, if I get what I want to be done in the time I have left…it will be a sort of divine intervention. all this renovation simply reminds me why I like skunkworks spaces and having all the tools you ever want in one spot. the amount of time you can think about things and not waste it traveling around between stores that closed at noon, one and even the big box stores didn’t have a valve…well. it is why I am behind right now.
you always plan on things taking more time and money, yet, when the planning was pretty good going into all this – and some odd circumstances changed the dynamic. you just sit there like I did yesterday, you pull up your boots and grab a shovel and start shoveling. it is funny, as I think I am more concerned and worried about it being functional for my parents when they get back more than anything. I can deal with shoveling – even though I can think of far more interesting things to do – but I just realized, I want them to have minimal disruption to the process, which already has been a story in itself.
while I am learning a great deal of aging and the physiology and psychology of it all. it has me wonder about controlled environments and humans. change is good to keep people growing. what I don’t see is a lot of people pushing themselves each day to change, rather, many want a comfortable world where they can bank or plan on everything.
I don’t think the later really does well for preparing people for when sh*tshows happen and you have to shovel the manure. it is like our vertical farming things – soil? what? shovel soil? yet, I will always have a super soil garden that can grow whatever, wherever I am on the planet. the tomatoes this year are wonderful.
now…it is time to push myself and just see where we end up shoveling till tomorrow afternoon.
that is the “sh*tshow weather report.” I feel better knowing I am not special and it appears to be more of a national thing – not just localized to me.
