Here's a FUCK! that doesn't have to do with dying, at least not a person or animal.
In 1994 we bought a Maytag Neptune front load washmachine. Today, the spin cycle quit, meaning everything comes out dripping wet. Can't gripe to much though for 19yrs.
Now I have to come up with at least 700 fuckin $$.

(((^Rhino!))) Welcome the fuck back! 8)

(((Ellorum))) sorry you had such a sad loss on a holiday; makes it hard. Good you can remember happiness now.

And Catman, wow, sorry about your appliance issues. You will never find a new washer that will last 19 fucking years, I am sure of that. Craig's List is a great idea.

MDF, thanks!

Sitting here alone contemplating this evening.

An idea just came up and waved at me, and said, "hey, Rhino....I'm proud of you....you thought about a PERSON, and not a THING."

Yeah, I did, didn't I? Things= possessions are something that loss shouldn't affect us. Whereas we lose a person, whole different ball game.

Chris' death hit me hard this last week, while the demise of my desktop via a power surge didn't even make me twitch an eyebrow. A desktop can be replaced. Especially if you have a backup set of disks. I'm entering new territory now with Chris' passing.

I love you people for letting me think out loud here in our forum.

Thanks, ygmir, burner von braun, msj2u, and patsch....

A grand combo, ygmir? You're right, and they are complimentary. Strength and sensitivity dictates that I will always try to be gentle in my dealings with others, always try to listen, and to always let the facts and intellect overcome knee-jerk reactivity.

We can joke all we want, but the bottom line is this: we are all human beings. Human beings becoming able to understand each other is worth celebrating. I think we're all getting better at it every day.

It's been a month. Still can't make any fuckin' sense of it, but I've quit trying... I guess I have hit the "acceptance" stage of grief.

I have the Christmas blues this year for the first time in my fucking life. I want to be home with my family and we just can't swing it financially. I was okay with it when I made the decision to go home for Thanksgiving and JekJek's 21st birthday... Now, I wan't to be there to hug my kids on Christmas. Fuck! I didn't expect it to be so difficult.

Humbug.

((((((((((OR)))))))))))

I wish I was close enough to make you smile.

So, let me tell you about my own little synchronicity at Christmas that happened just last night.

I have a new friend. She's female, and loves my cooking. And I love cooking. My joke is that I'm using her as my guinea pig for when I open up a restaurant after I retire. So far in the past couple weeks, we've had my patent Yankee pot roast (gluten free!), kung po chicken, twice-cooked pork, and Missouri-style barbecue, among other delicacies.

Last night, we were celebrating the season with a fresh wheel of brie, 6" diameter; and raspberries. Suddenly, from the next week, we heard "Are you overweight?" TV Commercial. Simultaneously, we said, "yes".....then we hear the tagline, "Have you ever considered liposuction?"

Simultaneously, we looked at the TV, and without prompting, replied, "FUCK YOU!"

That kind of snychronicity has never happened before in my life.

Be open to change, and be open to the wonders of synchronicity. On playa, I call it 'playadipity' - the serendipitous occurrences that just happen from being in BRC. I just found out it can happen in the default, too.

What an interesting Xmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/EID/Festivus gift!

Elliot: That is the EXACT same fucking cloud I have over me now. Only a few drops have fallen so far, but the potential for a downpour is huge.

The reminder here tho is that Shit will get wet... I may get a little stranded till the playa dries again... but it WILL dry, and then the fun will recommence.


Now, lets please all take a gander up at Rhino's lovely post just before I stole the attention. AWESOME fucking news, Rhino!!!! Finding a like-minded soul is golden in many, many ways!!! :D

Yep, I know that fucking cloud personally, and it always passes, often quickly. For the Playa, I bring an extra week or two of food and water in case we get rained in. Bring it on, and we'll have a hurricane party!

Doing the best I can with what I've got...

Yesterday I took down the Christmas tree.
As I was packing things away, my eye kept flitting to the scantly lit jackpost by my fireplace.

That fucking necessary evil, ugly piece of metal jackpost that so fucking saddens me by its very stark and jeering presence.

So I put more a couple more lights on it.

And then I decorated the bulbs.

http://flic.kr/s/aHsjQ84No2

Today I realized it needed something more... and so I started crocheting a sheath for it with something suitable, thus hiding the pole and wires completely, while leaving lots of room to poke the (by then LED) lights out before redecorating.

It's been taking on all kinds of importances, as I work on it. So I've decided to dub it my Sanity Pole.

For which I'll make things to adorn it which will become my Prayers to the Present, Past and Future. Or my Oh Fucks, or my inside jokes.... My joys and my sorrows.

My ever-changing tableau to myself, rather than an ugly reminder of failings.

And so I crochet. By the light of my pole, so full of beauty in my head. And I feel better. I'm focusing on something good.


FUCK YEAH!!!

Personally, I now think everyone needs a sanity pole.
