I Can Barely Play This Thing

"Wow, Midway is way better than Fresno." - Great Frigatebird

"I am sick and tired and my money's always spent, and though their jobs are killing me, their money pays my rent. The fuel of world hate, although it's just a seed, but when it grows and flowers, it becomes the world's greed......" - Choking Victim, Money

I am currently admiring the large blood blister I have on my thumb from a banding incident. Out of the corner of my eye it looks like a huge tick is there, satiated after a massive bloodmeal. The blood is all congealed and black, I am tempted to pop it, but afraid of what might come out.

So I have tentative summer plans at the moment. It involves not making money......again. That stuff is overrated anyways, you know what I'm saying? It's highly addictive....kinda like heroin. Once you get a good hit, you can't live without it. And then it all goes downhill from there. Beyond health care, I don't think it's a big deal, if your not totally broke. Or have children. Or owe someone a lot of money. The money trail is the road most traveled, and that is not someplace I want to spend a lot of time in.....there are many dead ends.

Midway is relatively pristine as far as marine ecosystems go, thus the large numbers of sea turtles, dolphins, sharks and smaller fish.

Even C-130s do not frighten the fearless Laysan Ducks.

Anyhow, in order to avoid jinxing myself, I am not going to mention what I'm planning on doing until it is completely confirmed. That is what I think is best. Gotta keep things interesting, you know?

Of course, it's easy for me to talk about money this way. I'm a privileged middle-class semi-white dude. The "privileged" part is important to not take for granted. Too many people use their privileges to fly a desk, take Star Trek really seriously, play video games, stay in cities, have too many kids, live in Fresno, climb the corporate latter and otherwise plot how to become more privileged. It all sounds like soul-cancer to me. Maybe when I am aging and desperate to cling to something permanent will I throw myself into this mess, but until then I will do my best to stay above the fray. But I will vow here and now to never, ever, live in Fresno. Thank you.

There's nothing like liquefied squid in the morning.
