snapshots of an idle mind

November 6, 2005


Filed under: Uncategorized — sassinak @ 1:02 am

. that a post i write about having nothing to say gets more comments than any other except spark (which was clearly the best thing i’ve written since i got readers…)

. that some guy stares at me for 20 minutes and circles me like i’m prey and then asks me if i know him and says ‘i was wondering because you were looking at me.’
– um what?

. that if i like someone they will like someone else who will probably like me.

. that if someone likes me i’m probably digging on that guy ‘over there’.

. that my kitten prefers the house of my neighbour to my own.

. that the better my body gets the lower my body confidence gets (well sort of… that one is hard to explain)

. that i can see the truth in others lives but not my own.

. that the hottest girl at the first aid recert was also the most competent one there.

. that climber guy wants to go climbing tomorrow.

. that i LOVE my new tires and my car loves the new shoes.

. that finding a fuck is easy but finding a date is hard.

. that i SENT a 5.10- on only the second try at it and i climbed it the first time with minor falling. (need new shoes!)
– okay that isn’t irony…

irony is:

. that hubris was climbing on 5.9s and I was climbing on 5.10-s … that’s fucking weird.

. that i caught hot climber guy watching me.

. that i caught him because i had just FALLEN off the fucking wall.

. that i don’t know how to let a guy know i’m interested without scaring him away… and that i can’t tell the difference between shy and indifferent.

. that my back is so sore i can hardly take a deep breath and i still want to climb tomorrow.
– i won’t.. monday maybe.

. that i dreaded the first aid recert so much and i had a really good time.

. that my partner for the day (yes, the hottest girl there) has a favourite vital.
. that i have a favourite first aid supply.

. that i am lost and yet lead.

. that my blog gets more comments when i’m not around than when i am.

. that all of my local friends are in relationships of some sort.
– except one… and it won’t be long for him.

. that i can’t tell the difference between ‘putting it out there’ and implying i’m something i’m not.

. that i used to paint on my jeans and now ones that are snug feel funny and too tight.

. that i enjoy tv so much more now that i watch it so much less.

. that this list has been really fun to make.

. that just when i’m ready to pass out i’m running out of irony.

. that i meant to talk about hockey tonight.
sundin scored!
lindros, that bastard, is fucking hot.
i’m glad andreychuck is still playing.


. that sometimes it’s more fun to have a crush to think about than it is to be heart whole and fancy free.

. that that sort of sucks.

. that i like difficult people and yet i want life to be easy.

. that i’m still adding to this list and i have to teach in the morning! THREE times.
– and go to a kid’s birthday party.
– and have dinner, maybe, with my friend who needs a name other than ‘hot doctor’ because a) that’s too descriptive considering other things i’ve said and b) he’s so much more than just that in my life.

. that i’m going to bed just when this list is getting interesting.

. that i had fun at my recert.
– i know, i can’t get over it either!




  1. that was a fun, enjoyable and rather insightful list. Poignant too! (mostly just cuz I wanted to use the word “poignant.”)

    I have a hard time writing like that — I always want to get on a roll and expand on something, as noticed by by 10-9-8 list LOL

    also, sounds like a much more productive day than I had … and I had so many good PLANS for getting things accomplished, only to give almost all of them up for sleep. Lazy bastard that I am.

  2. Please send a bit of your ‘insightfulness’ down my way, please!
    Btw, ADORABLE baby pic, you were comtemplative even then..!

  3. dz: i had a really good time writing that and i didn’t know it was coming out until it was a third done :)

    but yeah, i want to expand on a lot of that but i don’t think it needs it….

    um yeah, it was my day off… trust me, sleep was what i WANTED!

    gem: there’s only one way i know to get insight… read thousands of books and observe humans for years… :)

    hee you lie… that face is cranky not contemplative! *grin*

  4. It’s like rain on your wedding day… It’s a free ride when you already paid… It’s good advice that you just didn’t take.

    And who woulda thought? It figures.

    Sorry, I had to let that slip. Interesting Ironies and uh, comments from you lady. I want to hear more about hot climber guy. Not because he’s hot, but because he pays attention to ya.

    good job on the 5.10! Loveums.

  5. ooh … I hate that song … why is rain on the wedding day ironic? why is a free ride that you paid for ironic? That’s not irony … that’s just weird circumstances!!

    irony is when it rains on weatherman’s wedding (when he predicted clear skies)

    irony is when you a taxi cab driver has to pay for a ride … or a tow truck has to be toed.

    silly Alanis Morissette ….

  6. okay quoting alanis at a canadian… there has to be a rule about that somewhere doesn’t there?

    i think he pays attention to a lot of people… least that’s the way to bet at the moment.

    the thing with a climbing gym is that you don’t get to serially date everyone there… over the course of a membership you date one, maybe two, MAX three people out of the entire membership…

    with that in mind? no rush :)

    yeah i’m all proud!

  7. whenever i see tow trucks getting towed it cracks me up!

    or when i see car haulers being towed… EXTRA funny…

  10. Thank you for an acurate display of irony. Now go tell Alanis that a ‘black fly in your chardonnay’ is not irony just shi**y bad luck!

  11. Leave Alanis out of this. :)

    I sort of considered it ironic when I went to San Francisco to work for 3 months and while I’m there I meet someone who offers to show me around – and she wa from Virginia Beach, too. I’m 3k away from home and I meet someone who some people I did. Odd.

    Rain on your wedding day? Shit happens. Fly in your chardonay? Good, you should be drinking chianti anyway. :) Meet someone hot then meet their hot spouse? Look at the left hand. *shrug*

    Enjoy Sunday, Sass, good on you for pulling that 5.10.

  12. well i sort of like alanis but i did always wonder where she found teh definition of ironic :)

    okay cast that is funny as hell… i recently met a guy who went to school with people i’ve known for years… just random funnyness.

    mmmm chardonnay rocks :P

    not all marrieds wear rings is the thing… and not all rings mean marriage…

    and yeah dude, me adn that 5.10- are like *this* now :)

  13. no ring for me, i have a nice matching set of calluses on my hands, the thing went off a while ago.

    i need a ‘rita but my blender took a crap. :(

  14. Irony is what happens discussing that song.

    I feel you on the list. I want to steal it and do my own version but I just realized that I’m all irony all the time so it’s kinda not so much fun. I don’t know what you else you might want to call hot doctor, but I like the name.

    I’m glad you like the pic, it’s really just for the blog name. Eventually I can get a pic of myself up there, eventually I’ll have a pretty blog and perhaps a hot doctor of my own, and have the ability to climb a 5.10. I can dream.

    Happy Sunday.

  15. cast: my point exactly

    so have a lime one on the rocks

    amber: *lmao* you nailed it! irony *is* what happens when discussing that song!

    so steal it… i think any idea like this is just a variation on another list (for example i did one called happy thoughts once)… so turn it into something that works for you :)

    i like the name hot doctor too but it a) totally identifies him if you know me and b) makes him a the instead of a he.

    hey my blog is pretty cause of blogrolling and bloggerhacks… thas it… i just follow directions :) [and as for the 5.10- try climbing… you may be surprised at hoe enjoyable it is… ]

    mmm happy sunday to you and anyone else stopping by!
