Every day for the past month or so, pinkster shows me her new “bites” when I come home from work. They appear at random places. On her arm, the back of her neck, on her leg, ears, forehead, and anywhere else the little shits can get their mandibles attached to.
We have vacuumed, washed, scrubbed, and sprayed everything in the house, but the bites keep appearing. We even took her to a pediatrician who confirmed that they were indeed insect bites. But from what insect, she had no idea.
I don’t get any bites myself, but I am away from the house most of the day, so I can understand that. However, the wife and my son are home the same time Pinkster is, and they aren’t getting chewed on either.
We are at a loss as to what plague is currently singling her out.
I recorded a few minutes of film on my camera for a short video I plan on working on. It’s basically just me taking a couple of cruises through a town I live near. It’s one of those small towns that you hear so much about. A town so small you can drive into it, but you have to back out of it.
I could possibly win $500 if my film is liked better than the other entries. I think there is also a payout of $300 for second place, and $200 for third place. Expect to see that video soon.
It doesn’t really matter if I win, because the little bit I am learning about film editing is great fun.
When I had an XM radio, I used to listen to Art Bell every morning on my way to work. I sold that radio a few years ago due to me feeling that I wasn’t getting enough use out of it to justify the ever increasing cost. I now yearn for those early morning rides with Art Bell sitting in the passenger seat and whispering in my ear.
Art doesn’t host Coast to Coast AM anymore. George Noory does. George was doing a lot guest hosting for Art when I was a regular listener. I like listening to George also, but he’s no Art Bell.
This week, I bought a subscription to listen to Coast to Coast online. It was only seven bucks for a month, so I did it. I can get my Coast to Coast fix (even though I don’t necessarily believe all the shit they talk about, it still fascinates me, cause I am cool like that) via pc, but that doesn’t really help me with the longing for the voice in my ear while driving. I guess I am going to have to figure out a way to get the shows from my PC into my car. They are iTunes downloadable, but I don’t have an iPod. And even if I did, I still wouldn’t be able to listen, because the stereo in my car doesn’t have a fancy smancy iPod dock or anything like that.
Anyone have any suggestions on how I can remedy my problem without it costing me a fortune?
I guess that is all for today. Engineer & Egyptologist Robert Bauval is George’s guest, and he interests me, so I must go listen.
Go ahead, call me a freak if you will.
