It's Fri...something.

So…it’s…..Fri….day….and….it….is….moving…entire…ly…too...slow…ly. The clock keeps going “tick”, but is forgetting the all important “tock” that should follow and advance time. I think today is the perfect day to lose my mind and have a mental breakdown at the office. Not due to pressure, but rather just to break the day up into “before Kanrei lost it” and “after Kanrei lost it.” Will make the day easier to talk about and create the illusion that something, anything actually happened today.

There are not even patients this weekend. Everyone is still on vaca or something it seems; everyone but me. I am trapped in a boring and uneventfully quiet office. The only action right now is patients calling up to reschedule for a later date. This means that those few techs who I called this morning to confirm are probably going to get another call in an hour or so to cancel. The worst part is that it is an hour that will not come until the clock finds its missing “tocks.”

To quote Dante’ from “Clerks”, I am not even supposed to be here today. I am supposed to be on my way to Tampa right now. In fact, it being 1:40 means I would be just about there right now. Why am I still in Miami and not in Tampa? Well, because G-d is a funny deity. I told you that I never make it to Tampa to visit my dad and you are starting to see why. Last week was my bleeding problem and now that my problem is taken care of my father has the flu and 102 temperature. Can you believe this? The same thing happened last year. I failed to make it first because my car died on the turnpike and then he got sick the following week. This year I get sick and, once I am healthy to go he gets sick the following week…again.

Is this maybe a sign that he and I are apart for a reason? Maybe the combined sarcasm of the two of us together will create a sarcastic tsunami that will overtake southern Florida and cause mass deaths. Who knows, but it is comical in some cosmic sense. It makes me believe there are no random occurrences in life. It makes me lean towards some deity in charge of it all. Maybe a failed comedy writer or something got a promotion to G-d. Stranger things have happened.

Lastly, I want to say how sorry I am to all the wayward lemmings that became a bit more wayward over the last month. The Lemming House is collecting some cobwebs and the dust is getting thick. I have quite a bit of spring cleaning ahead of me. It is not for lack of trying though. I have not even found anything to send into Blogcritics. I am in a drought of inspiration right now, but I am also giving birth to a new writing bug so who knows which will win out. December is always a quiet month for me so stay tuned. The fun starts anew now.

I don't know, it does sort of seem that the great Cosmos wishes you to remain in Miami and your father in Tampa. Don't have a breakdown, though. There are lots of other things to do that are more fun.

Happy birthing to your writing bug.

My writing bug thanks you. I know why I have had such a hard time updating. I got my last piece thrashed very hard at Blogcritics and my confidence is shaken. My writing voice is very pompous. I hear Bill O'Reilly in my head when I type my political stories. Actually, Bill McNeil from NewRadio, but same thing really. I am getting my mojo back though.

Breakdowns are fun sometimes. It is the full moon so I have a cover story.

I understand how you feel Kan, I have been on a perpetual breakdown for about 2 years now....

Thank god, I have blogging to 'relax me'....Stick with it brother, you are a fantastic writer, you have real talent.....I don't care what Serena says about you.....

Now cue the Silence of the lambs music, I got some tucking under to do......

Gotta cheer up Rex. Be positive and life will rise to meet you. I am slowly learning this. It is hard to break old habits, but things are never that bad and when they are they could always be worse.

Kanrei said...

Oh, and thank you. Um....Serena talks about me? I am flattered. There is no bad press =D

Serena Joy said...

Why DOES blogging relax us, Rex? It's kind of a chore, like any other chore, yet I feel some kind of compulsion to do it, and feel better after it's done. Strange.

In fact, that may be why you've gotten a little out of the habit, Kan. Some days, it's darn hard to come up with something.

Kan, Just dropped in to say hello. Your writing is still as good as ever. See ya later.

You need a salary job, dude! When the clock runs that slow; I take off. I let my boss know that I'm in a meeting on the other side of the headquarters and then I take off. It's a great middle management trick.

Kanrei said...

HI Phan! Come by more!

Var, I have a salary job. It's just some days that middle part is really slow. My beginnings and endings are very busy.
