I went out on the porch this morning, to drink my coffee. Some kind of hideous wasp thing flew up and stung me over my right eye, which is now swollen shut. The whole side of my face is puffed out. It gives me a gratifyingly gargoyle look and I wish I could see well enough to drive into town. I'd go to the grocery store and tell people it was a birth defect.
I have nothing planned for the rest of the day. I can't work outside with this rain coming, and to tell the truth until the eye recovers I can't see well enough to do much of anything. Reading is certainly out of the question.
I have my trusty satellite radio though, and I can make myself a comfortable bed on the couch and listen to that, so the day is not a total loss.
I have been reading posts. On one post I saw some amazingly realistic fake dog poop. I was unaware that there was a market for this product and am now considering going into the fake ferret poop business . I am sure it would be a niche in this new industry, but who knows it might catch on.
I saw another post, at Pioneer Preppy's, where he was discussing the withdrawal of suburban creep from his area. His description of what has happened very nearly matches Kunstler's description of what would happen in the future in his book The Long Emergency. I need to get that out and read it again.
