My life is not a fucking tragedy

Fish & ChipsThis afternoon
, on my way to pick up a craigslist item downtown, I sat down in the sun by the California Street cable car place.

I was on my way from a meeting (people who work graveyard should be exempt from having to go to company daytime meetings, dammit) to go pick up a craigslist firewire burner. Knowing I had a little time to kill, I dawdled on my way.

I am one lucky sumbitch. In the warm sun, I leisurely opened up my steaming package of creamy Fish and Chips, done authentic English Style at Old Chelsea Fish and Chips on Larkin, and people-watched. And then when I was done, I liesurely sniffed my fishy and vinegary and tater smelling fingers, the smell driving my bench neighbors to distraction as they kept looking over to what I was munching on, wiped them with a knapkin, then powered on the camera and started shooting.

Yeah yeah. I wasnt getting any sleep, and the firewire drive, I dont have a 6 pin cable like I thought I did so I cant use it immediately and and...

Yeah, right. My life is a fuckin' tragedy.

I am in San Francisco with no serious worries, following my path.

I stopped my bitching, leaned back and enjoyed the afternoon in the sun.

Rashid: Isn't this where you normally get really enigmatic and I get frustrated? :-)
JPennant: yup

Came to an epiphany last night, finally figuring out something that's been on my mind since last year.

I was mad. So mad, I couldnt move forward on the personal level. That anger was a block, blocking me from getting to where I wanted to be.

So, last night I found out where the anger was coming from. Kinda nice to know why.

Whoo. About time.

Rashid: you STILL on yer Oddessey, eh?
JPennant: yeah, but now Im on the positive and productive side of it

Rashid: that's extreme patience, I think :-)
JPennant: sure is
JPennant: It works for me tho
JPennant: The flip side of that is that Im allergic to moving faster than my own pace
JPennant: which is glacier-like compared to the rest of the world
Rashid: LOL

Today's horrorscope sez:

This is still one of the best times of the year for you, but good things won't just fall in your lap - it is up to you to reach out your hand and take them. Don't listen to those who urge caution.

Im at a cross-roads of sort. Now is the time to push forward, pick up the pace - but Im still procrastinating.

Fear of success?
JPennant: Do I look like I bet on anything less than a sure thing? :-)
Rashid: I haven't seen you in five years. How the hell would I know what you look like?
JPennant: heh, you know me fine
Rashid: Only I can complete me.
Rashid: so I guess you're right.
Rashid: I'm looking for me.
Rashid: You seen dat nigga?
JPennant: who, Andrew?
Rashid: no...
JPennant: you?
Rashid: ME!
Rashid: LOL
JPennant: Youre right there
Rashid: god. you always were one to waste a good punch line.:-)
JPennant: Virgo, man. Wit: Dry, never shaken
Rashid: Tru.
Rashid: Sag: Doesn't give a shit. Jokes anyway :-)
JPennant: Corny ass jokes. :-)
Rashid: Opinions are like ass holes... everybody's got one...
JPennant: Sag's: Never sure if people are laffing with them or at them. ;-)
Rashid: Good one!
Rashid: (but a Sag doesn't worry about that shit, either)
JPennant: Good times, man :-)
Rashid: always.

As I walked over the bridge last night, a storm front passed through.

They say walking the bridge can be a life-changing experience, but this was ridiculous.

Gale winds, horizontal rain, salt spray.

Now I know how Alaskan Deep Sea fishermen feel.
