Brain Dump: May 31, 2021, 4:32 PM

Home from work. Took the day off. Doing absolutely nothing.

Waiting for the maintenance man or woman t come and fix the lock on my front door. I put the key in and it just spins and spins. I don’t know when or how it happened. I came home from Walmart1, the lock worked just fine. That was around 9:00 AM on Saturday. I tried to leaver at 12:30 PM Saturday to go to McDonald’s – I break my diet on Saturday – and the lock was broken. It locks from the inside. Sent in a maintenance request. Monday was the first day that there was a time open. I can use the back door. It’s not a big deal.

I never do anything when I take a day off. I never do any of the one thousand things I know I could be doing. Doing chores and tasks makes me feel like I’m working on my day off. Not doing chores and tasks makes me feel like I wasted the day.

Matt Stonie. World champion speed eater. Has a channel on YouTube. He\s not even a mukbang eater. He can just shovel an immense amount of food in his face in a short period of time. I’m fascinated, while I wait for the maintenance man. “The Belly Buster” BBQ Challenge – from Armadillo Willy’s BBQ. Rack of Texas BB Ribs. Rack of Baby Back ribs. Brisket. Pulled pork. A roasted chicken. Jalapeno and cheese sausage. Coleslaw. Cornbread muffins. BBQ beans. Cajun Fries. White cheddar Bacon Mac and Cheese. $75. He eats it all in under an hour. I’m craving ribs right now but I’m too lazy to get out of the chair. Delivery will almost double the price. It’s a middle-class problem.

Can you imagine how sick George Bush II was when they didn’t find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq? I would have resigned and moved to Europe.

Still waiting for the maintenance man.

I don’t have an appetite. I can still taste food. No COVID statistic here. I just don’t want to eat anything. Except for ribs- while I’m watching this video. I have eaten five corn chips. Not five bags. Five chips. A bowl of Frosted Flakes with lactose-free whole milk. A couple of apple fritters from Walmart; all I could taste was the sugar. Bland boiled eggs. I don’t even want candy. I steamed potatoes and I don’t even know why. I’m thinking of putting them with green beans and nothing could be less appetizing.

Music critic Todd In The Shadows (YouTube) is saying Madonna’s album American Life (203) derailed her career; it made her ignorable. And, well…I haven’t listened to a Madonna album since. so…

And, no maintenance man today. Wow. What was I waiting for? My health?

I started taking college courses because I was coming home every day and watching TV and YouTube, playing video games, going to bed, going to work and doing it all over again. Now, I have my degree, and I have returned to my old pattern. I have to do something new, something that changes my routine permanently. Or this is the rest of my life.

I had to put two teaspoons of sugar in my canned peaches to make them edible. 100% natural fruit juice. The kind that have heavy syrup don’t actually have syrup. It’s high fructose corn syrup – so…that is syrup. But, you know what I) mean. It tastes a lot better but I am still not convince it is healthier.

9:18 pm. I am going to bed. I hope my lock gets fixed tomorrow.
