Don't "pay me no never mind " (fractured franglish). .just some wandering observations. . . . . justin
Hey there, Mister Man. . . are you in touch with your "inner lover"? Wats cookin', man?
Just came from my own class. . .attending one, taking notes, learnin; stuff. . .I guess,. . .LOL
I am in a strange mood this morning. . . .can't put my finger on it. . . .quietly trying. I'm in my shared, presently alone, TA office with a cuppa and a toasted Portuguese muffin. . .not like but like an english muffin. . .;-) . . .has a few raisins, with a hint of some spice...just a slight hint, mind ya. . .buttered, course. Always keep some of the bare essentials [essentially I like being bare] in the small fridge. . . emergency stuff. . .like butter, coffee cream, coffee of course, p-butter, and some basic munchy food. There's a Folger's coffee can sitting on the fridge. . . for monetary contributions to maintain EMG foods.
I am in a grey-green [not from age!] comfy recliner, leaning back, feet elevated, laptop in place. I'm a little sore last night and today.
Was out on my regular run. . . Run for Svelt. . . ho ho ho. . . guess I pulled a muscle. . ..NO! not that one!
Hard to believe we are already well into the semester! And verging on the Autumnal Equinox. . ya know what means here in the North East. . . .gradually declining days and longer nights. . . .Then we reverse the process, ever so gradually, come the . . .only a hit of a tad of longer daylight. I rather hate those dark, cloudy, early lights on days of November. Some of us are somewhat hampered by the declining dosages of serotonin we need to feel normal and that's when surprising bouts of 'the blues' show up and hits of depressions weigh heavily for some of us.
We're not too far upward on the evolutionary scale and that inner drive to hibernate [to hole up, curl up, hide away in a dark cave and sleep the winter months away] hasn't entirely been squelched by the "industrial revolution" . . hehehe. . .No we live in a world of constant lights-on. . . look around at stores. . .malls. . .ablaze with those fluttering flourescent lights which tire out the eyelid muscles 'cuz we 'flicker' with the lights. Or look at those of us college and universties. . ..walk anywhere on campus and look in the windows. . walk into any building. . ..ablaze with fake light. . . everywhere. . ..even the bathrooms. . .locker rooms. . .. showers. . . .no dark corners to sneak into for a little "privacy", as it were. The ever-present Dachau Decor: myriads of flourescent lites!!!
And NONE of these lights give us lumens. . . .we need lumens which the cloudy days do not provide.. . the lumens come from the SUN.
No wonder our world is nutz! We live our lives in fake environments! A human being needs 10,000 lumens a day to feel normal !
YIKESIE !!! In the dark cloudy days of Fall and Winter we may be lucky to get 300 - 400 lumens. No wonder people feel we New Englanders are a tad strange. LOL We are deprived, babes, deficient in the natural sun vitamins like serotonim .
You've noticed, I am sure, how much better you feel when you wake up to a sunny day. . . and how good it is to be out in the sun as long as we can. In the olden days. . .before TV video/pc games I am told kids played outside most of the day, come in to eat, and back out till sunset. What a contrast today. The so-called Gothic look is essentially sun-deprivation. . . the night people, vampires. . . and they don't all look like !!!
Oh my, how did I get carried away with all this stuff??? Well in one lecture series we are talking about and delving into depression. . .DE PRESS SHUNNNNNNNNNNNNNN. . . .OY VEY , 'Adam and 'Eva !
"This little light of mine. . I'm gonna let it shine. . shine. . .shine. . ." Keep smiling, babes. Guys will wonder what your up to. LOL
Have some lumens. . .. ;-)
