We are weighed down, every moment, by the conception and the sensation of Time. And there are but two means of escaping and forgetting this nightmare: pleasure and work. Pleasure consumes us. Work strengthens us. Let us choose.

Good Morning & Happy Friday,
The weather is good & not enjoying it is bad.
Today is Friday 04/18/V3.4 & it is Melissa & Alex’s Birthday. No relation.
Back to normal, don’t have to drive into work today. Back with my friends.
The word of the day is dyad which is a group of two; couple; pair
Turkey, bacon, swiss, with mayo & pickle on 12 - Grain
Look at that boy.
Well it is Friday & I currently don’t have any
post work plans. I also didn’t plan on making plans. You know how to reach me.
Have a good weekend.
You can’t hold a man down without staying down with him.

Aren’t those flowers pretty?
Good Morning & Happy Thursday,
The weekend is here, celebrate.
Today is Thursday 04/17V3.4 & it is just a normal-Vernon J type day.
Technically this is my 3rd blog post. I didn’t do it this morning before leaving home & I drove in.
I’m on lunch now.
The word of the day is analphabetic which is not alphabetic. I don’t know who make these things up.
Does anyone want to go to Shendoah today?
The chariot leaves my current location at 1507. Come aboard the hangout with Vernon J train for 3 hours.
You can tell me secrets & I can tell you mines.
A good day is being had at work, how about yourself?
Well we are the best babies.
Unless you marry me & your birthday isn’t in June.
We’ll discuss it on our honeymoon.
Strictly speaking, one cannot legislate love, but what one can do is legislate fairness and justice. If legislation does not prohibit our living side by side, sooner or later your child will fall on the pavement and I’ll be the one to pick her up. Or one of my children will not be able to get into the house and you’ll have to say, “Stop here until your mom comes here.” Legislation affords us the chance to see if we might love each other.
Maya Angelou (b. 1928), African American author and performer. As quoted in I Dream a World, by Brian Lanker (1989).
Do I drive into work?
Good Morning & Happy Wednesday,
I don’t have to work tonight at this moment, but I might. Tina (roommate) usually picks me up from work, but she is o.o.t. & left the car. If I do have to go to work, I’ll have to come home & get the car, but I don’t want to drive into work by myself.
Today is Wednesday 04/16/V3.4.
The week has been Grand so far.
Tomorrow is guaranteed to be interesting. I don’t know how today will go.
Yesterday the fundraiser was fantastic. Great to hear Gwenn’s vision for the Nebraska Unicameral & residents of Nebraska. If you live in District 8, I’m asking you to vote for Gwenn.
The word of the day is picayune which is of little value or account; small; trifling
The weekend is coming.
I didn’t get any soundtrack suggestions, what’s up with that?
Have a day.
Only during hard times do people come to understand how difficult it is to be master of their feelings and thoughts.
