Jesus rides beside me
he never buys any smokes
hurry up, hurry up, ain’t you had enough of this stuff
ashtray floors, dirty clothes and filthy jokes
Unrelated to my sudden listening to the Replacements and the wonder that is “Can’t Hardly Wait”, but maybe not entirely unrelatedly, my bff pointed out to me that we’ve known each other for ten years this month. We haven’t been bff that entire time, of course, and hardly spoke for a few years, actually, but still. Ten years. Weird. I’ve been rolling that over in my head since he mentioned it.
In the meantime, Team Jameson is breathlessly awaiting a big ol’ snowstorm due to arrive this evening here in fabulous Omaha, Nebraska, and I’m okay with it. I mean, it’s the weekend. Poor Mr. J has an all-hands meeting at his store in the morning but my plans are pretty much to kick it and look at the purty snow while drinking copious amounts of tea. Maybe we’ll build another snowman.
I’m trying to think of interesting things to tell you but it’s been an uneventful little bit of time here. I’m sloooowly getting over the Death Plague that I had for a while. Will’s boss was in town the last few days and we’re buddies so that was fun. Other than that, I’m just waiting out winter. I’m going to St. Louis for President’s Day weekend and there’s been a flurry of planning around that. Mr. J will not be joining me since it’s a big sale day at work on Monday but that’s okay. I think he thinks it can get a little silly, anyway, and I think he hates the way those weekends are structured. When we go visit his family in Arkansas, it’s pretty chill. We just hang out. When we visit St. Louis, every single minute of every single day can feel pretty jam-packed and that’s just not how he rolls. Sadly, I think he feels obligated to hang with me so I don’t know if he has as much fun as he could on those little whirlwind trips. Me? I’m psyched. It’s TWO WEEKS.
Which kind of illustrates that I’ve been 30 for a little under a month. So let’s review my goals: I stopped eating meat and lost a few pounds, I’ve been better about work lately and I haven’t really purchased anything for a while. Also, I don’t feel like a complete jackass, which is saying something. I feel like I spend a lot of time feeling like an idiot sometimes and I haven’t for a while. That feels like progress.
So happy snomageddon, I suppose. And hi. How are you?
