I just wanted to do a quick bit of writing before I watch a movie or fall asleep or both.  The last word of my poem tonight is a hint of which movie I watched today.  I cried.  Sometimes I do see messages in things.  It’s kind of like when the numbers all line up.  I’m constantly looking on the numbers of license plates to see a sequence or code of things.  So I know the three digits of the license plates of the cars of people I know.  Well, there are more boring stories about that.  However, they are there.
Anyway.  I saw a message today that gave me hope.  So I will go with that.  Hope that I am on the right path.  Hope that I will be loved.  Hope that one day I will have a daughter to pass on my creative insights.  After that, what could anyone ask for.
I hung out with the cousin I live with along with his brother and a mutual friend.  It was good to hang out with the guys.  My cousin dropped me off at 10pm.  I like to retire for the evening.  What I don’t explain to people is that I can stay up later as long as I’m in the comfort of my bed and that it is quiet.  I might fall asleep early, or I may stay up watching a program or reading a book.  But at 10pm I like to be on my bed.  I set up like a couch.  I have pillows on the wall and the television on the table next to it.
So that leads the interesting thing.  Or I chuckled.  My cousin’s daughter discovered my set up as I was out.  She likes to hang out in my room when I’m not home.  I confront her about it and she denies it.  Usually I find a hair here and there.  Tonight, as I turned on the television, the youtube app was up.  And guess what was on it, a type of movie that she would watch.  A Hallmark Christmas movie.  She loves Hallmark Christmas movies and Hallmark Mysteries and so on.  So on my screen was this Hallmark movie.
I’ve given up on confronting her as she will continue to deny it and will continue doing it.  She now knows my TV setup and how relaxing it is.  So that is my story of the night.  Tomorrow, I will do Christmas shopping, smoke a cigar, go to the craft beer store and get some writing done in the evening.

Christmas Eve, if I don’t go to church with my cousins, I’ll watch the Thin Man.  If I do go to church with my cousins then the I’ll watch the move the next morning.  Then I will watch the Pope, like I did when my father was alive.  At some time I will watch It’s a Wonderful Life by myself and cry myself silly.

I am in the habit of buying Moleskine journals.  I think they are great.  However, I'm more of a typer than a writer.  And if I ever wrote in my Moleskines as much as I journaled on my computer and for my blogs, I would fill volumes.

Song Mood: Funky Town by Lipps Inc.  As a strange thing happened as I was walking around Wally-world for no reason.  That song had been playing on the radio.  One of the workers of the store was singing the song, after it had played and then I sang it while I was looking for stuff.  Other shoppers were singing it after I passed them.  It was like a chain Funky Town performance in a store.
I am super tired as I am always during this time of the year tired.  Today, I felt a lot of pain in my back and sides, kind of like where my gallbladder used to be.  I stopped eating fried foods a little over a week ago.  Who knows.
I know I’m sounding like a broken record, but something needs to change.  Tomorrow needs to be a new day.
I went to the writer’s group tonight, not that many since the facilitator wasn’t there.
Tomorrow will be a day for taxes.  Then I will attempt to do some writing.  I came up with an idea for the project I’m working on.  Glum triggers Milo’s gift and in the process, M…

It’s been a long day.  I woke up at 4:30am, hungry.
I went to Walmart to do the weekly grocery shopping.  I went to the lake.  I didn’t go out really.  Tomorrow will much of the same.
I didn’t get much of anything done, except for getting groceries and exercise.
I did watch The Pale Horse, a movie on Prime based off of Agatha Christie’s novel by the same name.  I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I haven’t read the novel and at this time I’m not sure I would have time, or it would be down the list by a lot.  I was most impressed with the wife in this little mini series that was the length of a movie.  The way she knifed a pillow, just gave me the chills.  And I thought that if I ever married Agatha Christie, I would sleep with one eye open.  She plotted out thousands of deaths within the hundreds of books she published.  I have a feeling that if I were married to her, she would have me on a leash and I would be happy because I would actually learn how to write mysteries.  Rufus Sewell has to b…
