I made this little graphic because I like having images with my posts but couldn't find one that communicated my state of mind with any accuracy. Then I decided that I could use this over and over and just change the message to suit my mindset. But this has been it for a while now.
Sure, I have stupid little tidbits of news that I could post, but I just keep asking myself why anyone would want to read about these things. If I imagine myself on the outside looking in, I can only hear myself saying, "who cares..." as I close the browser page and begin looking for more stimulating reading. But then again, I'm pretty bereft of stimulation in general these days and am finding it hard to be stimulated by things that used to hold my interest very well in days gone by.
My whole life seems to be about a big nothing right now. I'm stuck in an seemingly endless holding pattern waiting for the insurance company to play their next card with their engineer's visit. Waiting for contractors and roofers to return my calls. And they don't. Again and again. And while I wait, there is nothing to do. There is nothing new. Every day is Groundhog Day. Nothing changes. Ho hum. Blah, blah, blah. I hate this.
So, rather than bore you with the stupid little things that have come and gone, I'll let this post serve as a notice that I'm still around. Maybe I'll see it differently tomorrow and I will post all the stupid little things. But I still can't figure out why anyone would care when most of it doesn't even interest me and it's my life.
By the way, even if I'm not posting, I am visiting your blogs, though I'm showing up in your stats these days as a visitor from all kinds of non-New Orleans locations, such as Denham Springs or Gretna, Louisiana and Atlanta, GA. It seems my cable ISP has actually gone to dynamic IP addresses, as they've claimed was their practice for years but really wasn't. Now, if I unplug then re-power the modem, who knows what IP address I'll pull or from where it will appear to originate. But even if it says Gretna, you can still tell it's me, (unless you have scads of readers in New Orleans using Cox), because the address looks like this: ip70-171-122-130.no.no.cox.net (Cox Communications) No matter the city shown in the header, that no.no thing is New Orleans. And if I am around, I promise I won't ever use AOL and make myself completely anonymous in your stats. I want you to know I am visiting, even if the null-bug keeps me from commenting.
Sorry for this waste of your time. I'll try to come up with something better to write in the next post. Surely somewhere inside me, there is something worth reading.
