I'm Here

Hrm. It's 11:30 and the time stamper up top there popped up as 4:30. That's 7 hours difference now. Insanity. It felt like it's been a while so I thought I'd pop in and say Hi. You'd figure with all the junk rattling around in my brain I'd have a ton of stuff to blog about. Ah cruel fate. There is very little in my brain that I'm being able to organize or articulate and rarely both at once. Also, I've taken to talking to "people" so I can sleep and once it's been said . . . it's been said. Hrm. Okay, an explanation. One of the things that keeps most people from falling asleep when they're ready to is all of the day-to-day crap in their brain. I've been combatting this (for years now) by concentrating on a make-believe scenario in my head. Mentally role-playing myself to sleep. It's really helpful, you should try it. By concentrating on one thing and shutting out everything else, eventually your brain gets bored and off to sleep you drift. Lately, though, things have been nagging at me; so I just take someone from my scenario and dump on 'em. It's like having a mental psychiatry session before bed. Cuz sometimes that's all we really need. Someone to listen. No solutions, no arguments; just good old fashioned listening. That's been helping too, although my dreams just seem to be getting weirder and weirder. I'm not sure if it's connected or just coincidence.

I'm almost done with 'Carrot Cake Murder' and about 1/3 done with 'Duma Key'. 'Duma Key' is really good. I'm just waiting for it to turn bad. All the pieces are there, they just haven't magnified themselves enough yet. (No, I'm not going to ruin it for anybody who plans on reading it.) Oh, and all of my onions have gone kaputt. No more onions. The garlic is still growing, as far as I can tell, and the tomatoes are doing really well. I'll get a pic of them soon. Still nothing discernable from my herb terrarium. I may have to move it to a window that gets more light.

So there you have it. We're still alive and chuggin' along. One of these days I'll pluck out something good from my strained brain so you can read something more interesting than "we're good" for a change. Honest.
