and the oak branches all look like great places to hang a noose if you want to know the truth.
Even Elvis looks dispirited. And grim.
Well, the camellias are continuing to bloom and that's a flat-out redeeming quality of nature.
Yes. That looks amazingly like the last picture of a camellia I posted but it's not the same bush and it's not even the same variety but don't ask me what it is. Sure, I planted it but that was about seven years ago so forget me remembering.
Hey! You're not going to believe this- I WENT TO GOODWILL YESTERDAY!
After I got my teeth cleaned (and tip of the day: schedule your teeth-cleaning for noon because your hygienist will not be lollygagging with those instruments of torture because she will be wanting to go eat her lunch) I decided to (oh god, oh god, oh god!) go shopping. I went to the big Goodwill right down the road from where my dentist's office is and for once, it wasn't packed and they weren't playing crap music on the sound system and I spent a very peaceful hour going through stuff and I even bought two things. A blue cotton turtleneck which I mostly chose because it's a lovely color and not even black, and also a pillow because it's just about the happiest pillow I ever saw. Here's a picture.
Both the pillow and the turtleneck seem barely-used and I'm happy with both although I have no idea where the damn pillow should go in that it doesn't really match any of my decor.
Like I have a decor.
Deer heads, fish mounts, kids' toys, dog beds, and all with a sort of Civil-War era tropical theme. With many mermaids and Virgins of Guadalupes and other assorted Madonnas. Which means that the pillow will fit right in.
Ah, so what? So the fuck what?
I guess we're having our Thanksgiving Eve party here again this year. People keep telling me they're coming despite the fact that, well, I'm not planning a party. It always seems to happen no matter what. And we're having actual Thanksgiving at Lily's house this year. Which is going to be very, very strange but wonderful, too. The only downside to that plan is that I won't have leftovers. Maybe I'll cook a tiny turkey just for me and Mr. Moon.
WHAT THE HELL AM I SAYING? Christ. I'm nuts.
Okay. I'm obviously not quite right in the head and obviously, I don't have anything of importance to inpart, despite the fact that I've watched more TV in the past week than I've probably watched in a year and you'd think I would learn something of value there but it's not like I'm watching The Genius Channel, which of course there really isn't one because there's not enough geniuses to make something like that viable. And I certainly wouldn't qualify.
I'm sure I'll have something to talk about later as I am about to go to Monticello and that place is a veritable hotbed of geniuses or at least friendly people which is even better than geniuses and NO! I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT SO I'LL SHUT UP NOW.
Happy Friday, y'all.
