I Called In Sick Today


Recommended Posts

If Napa told us why he's in beantown I forgot, but I hope he doesn't catch anything and become a Red Sox fan. That would be terrible.

 

Tiltys giants got one on my Redbirds last night. Freakin Rosenthal needs to be demoted from closer. I'm done with him professionally.

and after 3 days, he is risen!

If you are paying $20 for a haircut, I imagine people assume you did it yourself anyway.

Pocket change cost me my first and only black girlfriend.   It was in the middle of a roaring poker boom and I was flush in ways most men don't even bother dreaming of. Money, it was like dirt to me

Wedding today. Did go to the game yesterday. Scalped tickets and had pretty decent seats on the third baseline but all my friends had tickets on the monstah so I snuck up there after a few innings. It was a good time.

 

But fvck the sox.

Man, I don't know. I don't have this many friends. I thought I ran out of friends to get married years ago. Yet, I've got another wedding next weekend and two more in the fall. And I just had a friend get engaged so probably at least one next year, too.

It's all about the frat. I normally hate everything about frats, but I can say with confidence that joining a frat was the best thing Napa has ever done for himself, and I am 100% in favor of it in his case only.

Hi guys! I'm working 60 hour weeks, a little on the weekends, even the weekends where the job says "take Friday off as a summer thank you!"

 

Ah feck it. I got a $5K raise, which is nothing, except that it is $5K more than I had. I'm drinking a rose wine because I'm classy af, and I'm seeing some weird ass art tomorrow. (I'm going into the ball. Correct that's correct.)

  • Light Reignfall appointments are non-refundable and non-transferable.

  • Failure to check in at the Light Reignfall gallery in the Resnick Pavilion five minutes prior to the appointment may result in cancellation.

Jesus, even the instructions for how and when to get to the art gallery are pompous and arrogant.

It's a Museum, and the exhibit is sensory deprivation, single person only.

 

It's going to eliminate my visual perspective, and I bet I'll feel like I'm flying, or that things are flying into me. I attended a group experience a little similar two months ago, with these kinds of warnings. I was shocked at how many adults had panic attacks and anxiety, and had to leave early.

 

If you want arrogant and no talent pompous, I think something like Gregory Siff would fit the bill.

Will we?

 

At the casino, losing money and hating life.

 

Yes, Brvy please have your namesake smite the shunned one.

 

Okay, so I went to the ball, the Light Reignfall. James Turrell likes to explore themes of saturated tones of color, and of depth perception, and lots of other things. I was the first attendee this morning, I signed the release form, took off my shoes and put my purse in the holding box. The white coated attendant took my info (total babe, not too gay, just gay enough, and I kind of hope he finds me on Instagram).

 

The machinery looks like a PET scan machine, or an igloo, and I'm happy I didn't see anyone go in or out before I did. So, I skim the two pages and sign, phone number, and give an emergency name and phone number, and then walk up the stairs. The attendant asks me to lie down, again, it's pretty much a drawer that's going to shift into the igloo.

The future Mr. Frau hands me nice headphones, specifying which was left ear or right ear, and then he hands me a panic button to hold in case I need to end the experience early. It's a timed experience, and is 10m 54sec long. I get rolled into the globe/igloo/whathave you, and lose my sense of visual perspective almost immediately. The headphones pipe in tones, almost like sound tests, and the visuals are saturated color, which bleed into hues; there are no clear transitions, and every once in a while there are dots and geometric shapes that bounce around. Again, for frame of reference, it kind of reminded me of the peripheral eye exam test.

 

The last 5-10 seconds are silent, with the hues being light, and so beautiful. Then I got wheeled out--the 11 minutes went very fast.

 

There was the next patron waiting for me, and she was noticeably nervous. I am claustrophobic, and I felt a little uncomfortable; I felt a (Sklansky bait) boundary--I can go into an igloo, an elevator, and I'm okay. I doubt I'd be able to go into a cave.

 

The exhibit is installed for a year, and I'd like to go back and do this again.

So it was just different colors? That's not what I was expecting.

 

Also; I want you to live a long happy life. I'm not sure marrying a gay dude is the road to supreme happiness, since you're not also a gay dude. (just the right amount of gay or otherwise)

At the airport, off to Dallas then Jackson Hole. Then drive two hours to get to wherever these people live. Gonna be a long ass day. Staying at the clients house, which is weird to me. But hey, I'm getting paid for this so what the hell.
