Maus Space

I've continually had a liking for the mystical, but it wasn't until I matured a little iota that I discovered John Maus!

Just had the dreaded phone call from home which always portends bad news. My grandmother died at 94. She was a bit of a witch who always begrudged her age and wouldn't even let me call her 'grandma.' She used to lock my sister and I outside in a blizzard with ice scrapers and would not let us back in until her station wagon (replete with creepy bobblehead bulldogs nodding solemnly on the dashboard) was fully clear of snow. In fact, my mother used to threaten to send my sister and I over there for the weekend if we didn't tidy our room. Although we were not particularly close, I feel acutely aware of how time marches on without me. She was a person I have known my entire life and, at such a distance, I will not even be able to attend her funeral; I was not present during her final hours; have not, in fact, seen her in over three years. Her inappropriate belching and emotional blackmail aside, it is a very discomforting feeling, compounding the homesick desperation which reels within me every day.

Guaranteed better results than OKStupid. This is probably the only demographic that will exuberantly engage about sci-fi gynoids, shamanism, Stanley Kubrick, and the problems of latency. "ISO SM who will kill with his hands for me TYVM."

My family's home flooded recently. It's a split level, and if you look at the picture below, there is a hallway in the far right corner. My room is in that hall. A lot of stuff got damaged/ruined. Including lots of my records. I saved most of them, but some covers got damaged and moldy and thus had to be scrapped. As fellow music lovers... feel for me. I am in pain.

Wow, that looks bad. :(
I feel your pain, I had the same thing happen a few years ago, except I was lucky not to lose any of my music, just had to spend buttloads of money cleaning it all up. It all worked out okay in the end though.

So sorry about your records and their watery grave, PG. I know to other, more conventional folk, it may be just 'stuff,' but record collectors are not that. Hope you went swimming at least.

Shout out to any Mausketeers in New England. I tried something, it didn't work out, so I may be moving back into my mom's house in a few months. It would be comforting to know there are some relatable people in the vicinity.

Dare to be Great, App :666D:

That's what I tell myself before I go on stage, or lead a meeting, or something similar.

You've got the goods, make things happen.

Having said that, I just had a super crap meeting today that went totally off the rails. But I tried. Our own president/medical director screwed it up. Everyone was happy and having fun but nothing got done and the whole purpose of the meeting was shot early on, despite my efforts to get it back on track. Doctors are whimsical flakes.

but THE SUN WILL COME OUT TOMORROW / BET YER BOTTOM DOLLAR THAT TOMORRROOOOWWWW.... :666: sorry :blush:
