Verbose, even when I try not to be

TMI -yesterday evening my colon attempted three times to self-cleanse. This despite taking an Immodium every morning. "Checked the plumbing" before I left work, went to Sunnyvale Safeway and as soon as I entered, asked where the facilities were. "End of aisle 6." Pushed my cart to the end of the aisle and past, then into the men's room - of course there was someone in the stall. A man, a toddler and a stroller. So I spent the next several minutes hearing a first time dad baby-talking his daughter about clean hands, etc. as he stumbles around the stroller in that too-small space. Big enough for a person in a wheel chair, but that's about all. Finally got in there, did 90% of my shopping, and needed a return trip. I had a colonoscopy recently, it was negative. Doctor thinks it may be lactose reaction - could be. But it's not consistent. Took two Immodium this morning.

Work. Got there at 10 because the Internet reached out and glued me to my computer chair for an hour. For the record, we are encouraged to get there by 10. Not that it matters. what I'm doing these days is a lot of "write code. Wait for it to run. Debug. Rinse, lather, repeat."

This morning I finished the paperwork to submit yesterday's script, and finished the next one by about 5 today, but will wait till tomorrow before doing the paperwork because they still haven't tested the one I did last week.

Lunchtime I was stood up by Automation Guy, went to Kaiser to p/u my insulin instead. Lunch at Stuft Pizza,  a small Stuft Special, very good. Best pizza I've had in a while.

By go-home time I was on YouTube between code runs, listening to more Kenny Chesney (he does a pretty good rock and roll when he wants to) but finally went for the "comfort food" of Rose Sirintip's A Tu Corazon (Thai & Spanish) and then really sinking into as-closed-to-depressed-as-I-ever-get รักเอย Rock Oei" (Love, Eh?)  which I seem to remember was the theme song for a particularly morose Thai soap opera.

It has a beautiful melody, even if you don't understand the words.




รักเอย                                      Love, eh?
เจ้าไม่เคยเว้นผู้ใด                      It has never spared anyone
ไม่ว่าเกิดอยู่ในฐานะใด                Doesn't matter who or what you are
ไม่มีใครหลุดพ้นมันเลย               No one is free from it

ตั้งใจจะไม่รัก                             One may intend not to love
ก็ยังต้องรัก แพ้ตัวเองไปอย่างนี้   But you must love - too many are defeated this way
ต้องยอมทนแลกหัวใจที่มี            You must agree to tolerate what change of heart there is
เพราะว่ารักคำเดียว                      Because love is only words

เจ็บยังไงก็ทน                             However hurt, you must endure
เพราะว่ามันรัก ทำไมเป็นอย่างนี้    Because to love - "why" doesn't matter
ผิดก็ทำก็ยอม                              Wrong therefore make therefore reluctantly consent
ไม่มีศักดิ์ศรี ก็เพราะรักเธอผู้เดียว   Nothing to be proud of - then because love you only

รักเอย
เจ้าบงการทุกทุกอย่าง
ไม่มีหวังก็ยังคิดรักเธอ
ทั้งทั้งที่ก็รู้ตัวดี

ตั้งใจจะไม่รัก
ก็ยังต้องรัก แพ้ตัวเองไปอย่างนี้
ต้องยอมทนแลกหัวใจที่มี
เพราะว่ารักคำเดียว

เจ็บยังไงก็ทน
เพราะว่ามันรัก ทำไมเป็นอย่างนี้
ผิดก็ทำก็ยอม
ไม่มีศักดิ์ศรี ก็เพราะรักเธอผู้เดียว

ตั้งใจจะไม่รัก
ก็ยังต้องรัก แพ้ตัวเองไปอย่างนี้
ต้องยอมทนแลกหัวใจที่มี
เพราะว่ารักคำเดียว

เจ็บยังไงก็ทน
เพราะว่ามันรัก ทำไมเป็นอย่างนี้
ผิดก็ทำก็ยอม
ไม่มีศักดิ์ศรี ก็เพราะรักเธอผู้เดียว

เพราะว่ามันรัก ทำไมเป็นอย่างนี้
ผิดก็ทำก็ยอม
ไม่มีศักดิ์ศรี ก็เพราะรักเธอผู้เดียว



After work, home, planning on changing the litterboxes which looked rank this morning, but this evening they looked good for another few days. Hmmm.

Vegged out on the recliner for a bit, Domino let me run the undercoat rake over her a few times. when she jumped off my lap, Kaan followed her and did his best nonchalant suitor routine, lying down on the carpet and stretching out until his forepaws were almost touching her as she scratched her face on the big semicircular scratcher thing. She whipped around and swatted at Kaan who went up on his haunches with his forepaws raised like "hands up!" and he backed away a little. This little drama has been playing all week, with Kaan getting more and more in her face and she being more physical in shooing him away. Used to be she just growled all the time. Maybe there's hope - she used to start making rude noises from 3 feet away. Now he has to actually touch her.
