monday night 3-9-09

transcribed from my notebook:

it's monday night and i lay in bed. it's dark and i'm writing this by very poor candle light in a really nifty 3d notebook i bought a long time ago, but could never find a good use for. i'd light more but alas i have lost the lighter. surprise!! seriously, i had it not fifteen minutes ago and ONLY in the bathroom for my candle lit bath.

you see folks, i had my electricity turned off today. i know what you're thinking. jane's finally trying to fulfill that hippie fantasy of hers by going natural and giving up modern comforts to live by the sunlight the way God and Nature intended.

well, dear reader, as much as i would like this to be true, the reason for this is far less noble. after much calculating and recalculating, i still have only 13 dollars in the bank until friday and there's no way to get around that. none. believe me. i've tried. so, join me as i embark on this four day adventure.

of course, you will not be able to read this until next week. so, i'll try to keep it well documented for you until then.

because honestly, what else do i have to do?? one can only masturbate so many times before there are just no fantasies left to enjoy. after a while, all your characters eventually just give up and sit around and start playing poker.

so far, in the very short time i've been without lights, the turkey meat in my fridge has already begun to take on the taste of what a squirrel smells like. hopefully, this will still be salvageable to bring to work tomorrow. lord knows i'm certainly going to try, though i may get food poisoning in the process. here goes hoping!!

luckily, i learned last year when i was living in my duplex how to wash clothes in the sink and hang them to dry on the shower curtain rod. at least i'll have clean clothes to wear to work.

Ugh. i can't actually "see" what i'm writing anymore because these candles are so dim. i'm just trying to make sure none of the shadows (or scribblings if you prefer) overlap. i'm also praying this story flows. but i'm starting to get a severe headache from this so i'm gonna leave you now and see if i can go break up a poker game before i fall asleep.

good night.

The poker joke amused me, but the callback left me rolling on the floor.
