Part VIII: Fire and Ice

June 27th, 2009 · No Comments · Potpourri

WordPress is acting wonky. I upgraded it a few days ago, and have posted a few things here since then. However, every now and then it (or my browser) just won’t let me type anything in the content field. When that happens, I click frantically for a while and then give up.

Dashboard Widgets to the rescue! I don’t know whether QuickPress is just part of WP now, or if I installed it, forgot about it, and never used it. If it’s the latter, then it’s awesome that it has “survived” so many upgrades. If it’s the former, you’d think I could find that information somewhere.

I defeated drug addiction Monday. A friend, who meant well but wasn’t helping at the time, gave me some information that made me doubt my “freedom.” Briefly.

This week has been difficult, of course. However, being an optimist means always knowing that I will always have plenty. Plenty to wake up for, plenty to stay up for. Plenty to eat, plenty to drink.

Speaking of drinking, I had my first real “Never Wanna Drink Again” experience. It was my own fault, of course. I lack the ability to realize when I’ve had too many, especially on days where I’m already dehydrating myself through the eyes.

Plenty of fire, plenty of ice. I can make fire if I have to, I have the patience and the knowledge. I’ve done it before. I know where to get ice, and I know how it’s made. I’ve never made any myself in weather where machinery is required to do so, but I’ve never been in a survival situation where it was necessary to do so.
