jump in

Movie with Matt tonight. AbFab!

Between client work (just some Texas homebuilder stuff so far today) I am working on an Etsy shop for digital downloads. Fun, but lots to it.

I'm trying to focus on one task at a time. Picking a shop name that is short, personal to me and descriptive of what I have to offer was the first thing after deciding what I was going to do (that was several days of thought and research). Creating a logo for the shop is next though for now I am using a modification of the logo I use for my main work. Getting one item listed so I can actually open the shop was next even though it's an item I don't expect to sell. I still have to write policies but that can wait for now. Determining what type of items people would likely be interested in for digital download is on my mind always. Sure, I can offer custom design services but I want this shop to start off being as unmanned as possible. Residual income is the goal. It likely won't be much as I see plenty of people with only a few hundred sales and a few with 3k or less.

Thinking thinking thinking. Sometimes thinking about things too much slows down the whole project. Not that anything should be done without thought, but sometimes you've got to jump in.

Have any of you been watching So You Think You Can Dance? It's little kids this season and they are so amazing!

hoarder

It's comparatively chilly today (and yesterday).

I ate a tortilla yesterday and since it used a large percentage of my daily allotment of 25 carbs, I was rather hungry later in the day. Oh well, that's the way it goes. As a result, I find myself hoarding carbs this morning. Thoughts of just making a big ol' steak are on my mind but no, I can have too much protein either!

nonsense

I dreamt that a tornado was coming. Tornados have always been intelligent predators in my dreams. I hid under a very big and heavy bed that was so close to the floor that I had to squeeze under. I guess it worked because next I was at the grocery, purchasing a green bean casserole machine (I know, what?) for a friend who had no money due to the tornado. I asked the clerk what I should write on the check so it could be used by the friend for a future purchase including tax. The clerk said to write the words "CASH AMOUNT" and it would take care of the appliance purchase plus tax but nothing more. How does it know?

lol… It doesn't work that way. And what's up with a green bean casserole machine? Weird.

degrees

It was hot last night! Sleeping was uncomfortable even with the central air and all fans on at full blast. Loki couldn't understand why I didn't want him to sleep in his normal spot in the crook of my arm. He is a little hot pocket.

I looked into supplemental cooling and thought I might buy an evaporative air cooling unit. Amazon couldn't deliver it until Wednesday and it's supposed to be a little cooler anyway so meh, I didn't order it. It would have been nice for last night.

We finished Outlander season two. I have a couple of episodes of Stranger Things left to watch and then I guess we are between seasons of good television. Oh well, I have books to read.

wayback me

I started off the day planning a post about my personal existentialism and legacy but most of that posting desire has evaporated with the day.

Basically I was thinking about what meaning would be left behind in the world as a result of my personal existence. Yes, I enjoy my life, but the question on my mind is what is left behind when I'm gone (hopefully I will last several more decades, lol).

So what will I be remembered by or what signs that I was here remain? I already know that the work I do will be gone. Websites I designed in the 90's still can be found via the waybackmachine, but they are disintegrating, images are falling away and little to no trace will last decades. Here's one from 1999.

Ha! The wayback machine only goes back to 1996. I started in web design in 1995. Yeah, I wasn't long out of college!

So anyway, my work isn't going to last and is not going to be my legacy. How about things I've written? Things I've written in blogs and on facebook will outlast me but even those services will fail with time I'm sure.

Here's a waybackmachine screenshot of a broken diaryland entry in 2001. Ha, I even mention Matt. :)

So my art will disappear, my writing will disappear, I have no kids (and that doesn't mean a long legacy anyway… I don't know my great-great grandmother's name on either side. I do know much of my paternal side and have the names all the way back to the 1700's, but the ones deeper in my past are gone to me and gone to the world.

I suppose unless we do something awesome enough to make us famous, or something vile enough to make us infamous we are doomed to be forgotten.

But really, is that so bad? I don't exist to be remembered.

In the shorter term of history, this blog may be of some use to another little person who is struggling with their weight. I hope they find company in my sharing it all.

lol! I found a diaryland entry that is just as retrospective as this one, and it actually still has a photo of me!

In case the link disappears here it is all the way from 2001, disintegrated, broken bits and all:

BOOM! … BOOM!

A wreck just happened in front of our house. I heard BOOM! *screech!* a fraction of second of silence then another BOOM!. Cro said "That didn't sound good." No, it didn't.

It was just on the other side of our mailbox and I felt like a nosy lady by peeking out the window to see. I couldn't really see much but Cro could and said it looked very bad. Two cars were totaled, a black one had t-boned a silver one. As he left for work I asked him to let me know what he saw from our driveway. The emergency people were there and he said they were pulling people out. :( I opened the door to get a look after the ambulances left. They didn't leave with sirens blaring so maybe that means no one was critically injured. There are a lot of big truck sounds out there now so maybe tow trucks.

Cro said our road was blocked off on both ends when he left for work, but traffic is flowing again like nothing happened. There is a lonely car bumper still sitting in the grass across the street.

Ghostbusters last night was fun. Though we were the only two in the theater at first, a gaggle of children were wandering up and down the aisles by the end of the movie. Where did all of these young-un's come from? hehe. It didn't seem to me like a movie little children would like. No one ended up crying though.
