I had this idea a while back and never got around to it til today. I kind of like the concept and I’m thinking of revisiting it for the Mage card in my tarot deck with whoever I decide to make that card. I definitely need to come up with more realistic fire though.
Long day today. Had my interview with that company again. The CEO told me that they liked me but he wasn’t sure I was the perfect fit for what they’re looking for. So now they’re trying to figure out whether they want to adjust what they are looking for or not. *shrug* It’s pretty much out of my hands now. We’ll see. I wonder if I’ll have to go in for an unprecedented 5th interview.
Steph’s grandmother died yesterday. Wake tomorrow and funeral on Friday. I absolutely, totally, and in all ways hate funerals. I like really despise them. There is nothing so uncomfortable in the world. I don’t even go to the funerals of my family (something some people in my family seem to very much resent). I told Steph I’d go with her to this one though. So forgive me if I’m really morose and depressed on Friday. Steph has given me a reprieve from the wake however. Not only do I consider wakes depressing, I just think they’re downright creepy. Congregating around the deceased. Way creepy. When I go, you’re all invited to remember me the way that I would remember any of you, with a couple shots of tequila in a local dive bar, thinking of the good times. As for my body, I don’t really care what you do with it, I won’t be using it anymore. Hopefully something cool, shoot me into space, cremate me and dump me into the ink for a book I wrote, load me in a missile and fire me at [insert Axis of Evil enemy here]. Whatever. But seriously, why would you want to hang out around it. Have a drink, on me.
In any case, since this is eventually going to go in my book one day, I want to take this moment to offer my heart felt condolences to Steph and her family. I love you, Sweetie.
