Happy fuckin’ new year. Man, hopefully things get better. How about that fusion progress, eh? I mean, we’re still fucking forever out from practical fusion, but progress is progress, don’t you think?

We’re watching this Amish reality TV shit, and it’s insane to me how these people exist on the fringes. I can’t imagine the Amish way of life lasting much longer, because it’s just absolutely asinine. Man, I can see why the Amish make entertaining viewing. Their culture at it’s very core is oen of being balls-deep in your neighbor’s business. Combine that with the fact that some of these goons aren’t remaining Amish, and some are, and you have a really snoopy gaggle of morons slap-fighting and screaming every ten minutes. It’s like Jerry Springer meets Rumspringa. I don’t even know what to say half the time, except to excuse away their behavior with the eighth grade education they’ve all had. It’s just goddamn nuts.

Man, I can’t believe the week is almost over already. I’m not ready to go back. I wanna stay home and be a lump. I wanna occupy my time with nothing at all, for a while at least, until I have it out of my system to lay around and be a lump. It’s not out of my system yet, dammit. Oh well. I guess I can only do what I can do with what I have. And we’re in such wild times right now, with such confusing messages on whether we’re headed for a recession, depression, or yet another market rally. It seems like the market’s crashing one day and rallying the next, and no one can make heads or tails of it. No one can say whether we’re headed in one direction or the other, because these times really are unprecedented.

I guess that’s all for my musings of grandeur. On a personal note, I’m tired. There are only a couple more days until I’m back on the road, and I’m not exactly looking forward to it. The next holiday I’ll have off will be in May, and it’s quite far out. The big thing is that I’m marrying my fiance in April. That’s a milestone I’m wildly excited for, and honestly never expected to experience again after getting divorced. I can’t wait, honestly. It’s wild to feel like I can’t wait. It’s a wonderful step in the direction of our greatest journey, and I’m excited.
