Icy Fingers

Do you like to be alone? Walking, sitting, thinking? This past work week had it all for me--- boring routine, pressure points, confusion at a few contrary turns, and here at the end it's zanytime: the Super Bowl. It's a fine time to get away and refresh. Every once in a while, I find it so invigorating to just step back for a few hours, a few days. Walk a different way, sing a crazy tune and perhaps visit an unknown venue. Suggestions? Think out of the box? Heck no! Throw the box in the wood stove. Say hi to the 'elephant in the room' and toss him some peanuts! This weekend it's a 'bachelor weekend' me, and it comes at a perfect time. Elenka is away in Jersey, and I'll have to fend for myself. I love it! The house is all mine. Play my music LOUD! Don't pick up my clothes. Eat some fried food(shhhhh!). Sit and stare at lonely trees out back. And later today, get a bit crazy with good friends, and let's see... oh ya, make sure the house is picked-up before tomorrow evening. I better, or I'll find myself in a very bad place. I think they call it Lonelytown!

  3. You need help! Or you will if you get lost in the woods or in the dirty clothes piles all over the floor. I hope E left you a GPS. And I hope you told her to call you when she was within an hour of arriving back home. :-)

  10. I enjoy to be alone. But I think there's a difference between men and women: a woman will keep her house clean,even if she's alone! No mess needed to feel happy!:o)
    Anyway, I've heard about the Super Bowl,and I know how important it is for US boys and men. so, enjoy your week-end!

  15. It's unusual for me to be alone and I love those rare times. Not that my behavior changes much but it's so wonderful to be able to concentrate on something without interruption.
