Title>Still Waters Run Deep: September 2006

Sunday, September 24, 2006

So it's midnight and for some reason I can't sleep. This never usually happens to me. Sometimes with the changing of the season I get a little antsy, that must be the case tonight. I can't believe it's fall already. I am sort of saddened by this. Winter is coming and I have no man to keep me warm. I know my chances of meeting someone in the winter are slim to none since I rarely get out in the summer months, let alone the winter. Maybe I should consider taking a class or something. There is a community college fairly close to where I live, but what would I take? Something just for interest sake I guess. I will consider this. I don't like being alone for too long, but on the other hand, I just hate meeting too many people. Too many people wanting to get to know you. I know, its funny how that works. Maybe I could take a class on line, just to have the communication without all the other B.S.? Now there's an option.

I know I should be used to the rain by now, living on the west coast, but I am just not ready for rainy season yet. I guess I can afford to go away for a holiday, but who would take care of my dogs while I was gone? Where would I go alone? I think the dogs would go crazy without their daily runs. I know I would. I haven’t been on a proper holiday in a long time. I went to the Dominican a few years back, but I must say it was a disappointment. Outside the resorts, people lived in desperate conditions without proper water supplies. It seemed so wrong to be staying at a 5 star resort while the workers who made our stay there so pleasant could only dream of staying in a place so grand. It kind of took away from the whole experience for me. Going alone would be alright as I am ok with not being a kept woman. I like my independence, but still I would prefer to be interdependent with a man.

Fall is in the air. It is so obvious around here these days. The leaves are all turning, and it’s dark so late in the morning. I find myself naturally sleeping later and later each morning. I have turned into a wee bit of an evening television buff though, so it’s not like I am sleeping around the clock, just staying up later than I used to. The change is sort of nice.

I used to be such an early morning riser, but there is a certain pleasure in sleeping in as well. It’s not every night, but definitely Tuesdays and Friday’s for sure. Lately I have started watching the evening news versus the early morning news. The stories seem so much more in depth. In the morning, depending on what channel you watch, there seems to be so many weather and traffic reports. That stuff is all just fluff to me. At least at night I am getting the full content of the news.

Some times I find the news such a reality check. When they talk about the situation in Afghanistan, you can’t help but think about what life must be like over there. It is sad that we have come so accustomed to killing in the name of our political figure heads. If they all hate each other so much, why don’t they just hunt and kill each other! That would keep them a lot more honest. Really it is such a simple concept, if they had to be the ones paying there own dues, if they were the ones to be held accountable for their own actions, and not just in the sense that they may lose votes; if they had to be held morally and physically accountable for their acts of injustice they might not occur. Why do innocent young brainwashed soldiers have to die for these lying cowards? I'm sure that is a question we all ask ourselves. Tell me what you really think?

According to wesawthat.com, the Richard McNair video is on top again on Google. I wonder if something happened? Was there a sighting or something about him in the news? I didn’t find anything that looked to be of substance. I love that video none the less. So I have included it from the Google site.

Well I was up early for my morning run this morning, and it sucked. I came home soaking wet. I should have stayed in bed a little longer. It seems more like it was a movie morning than an early morning run day. I must learn not to ignore my instincts in this category. Balance is good. Sometimes you have to just rest the beast! Speaking of movies, I can wait until Monday night for the next episode of Prison Break. I have sort of told myself that Monday, after Prison Break is the only time I am allowed to check Google news for any Richard McNair sightings, otherwise, I think I could easily become a stalker! Lol. Unless of course I hear of something in the news, but I am not going to do my usual Google search until Monday night.

It’s interesting to do Google searches. Do one on yourself, or even better, go to the search engine www.dogpile.com. It compiles all the search engines around and does a composite search. It’s pretty cool to see what is out there on yourself. For me there was not a lot. A few others with my name of course, unfortunately I am not unique in my name.

Well the weather is so iffy this weekend, I am not going to get to finish staining my fence. I hate that. When I have an objective in mind, I like to stick to it, and finish it, mother nature is testing my patience. I guess patience is something I obviously need more of.

I guess when you chose a life of solitude, like I have, it’s a little more normal to have heightened stimuli to abstract things. Yes, I am talking about ‘Prison Break’ again. The fact that the two main characters, two very sexy brothers are both innocent makes their purpose just that much sexier. The bond between these two brothers and the way they risk their lives for one another and their trust in each other goes way beyond anything you ever see between women. Talk about sex appeal. Not to mention the planning that has gone into their escape!!! I wonder if Richard McNair had to plan his escape half as much, or if an opportunity just sort of arose and he took it. I suspect he did have to plan, but of course the jails would be stupid to glamorize that part of the story as it would just make them look bad.

Curiosity got the best of me again last night after the show and I googled the news groups to see if there had been any sightings of Richard. There was one from Ocean City, under a title of, “The Good the Bad and The Ugly”!!! I don’t think it was a legit sighting. I am not sure where Ocean City is, but it must be in the US and Richard McNair is not likely to have gone back over the border where he is such a hot item. I wonder if there are bounty hunters after him, and a reward offered for his arrest like there is for the prison break characters. No amount of money…

Last night on the news they talked about Jerry Ambrozuk again, the fellow who lived in Texas for 24 years under a fictitious identity. He even started up a software company. They say he was in a rented airplane and told friends that he and his 18 year old girlfriend had staged a crash so they could elope and live anonymously in the US. Apparently Jerry claims that once they landed in the lake his girlfriend’s seat belt jammed and he was unable to get her free. Divers later determined that her seat belt was not jammed, and that money etc., was missing from the plane. If it wasn’t an accident, how did he get her to stay in her seat belt? Maybe he drugged her. That is likely a detail we are not meant to know. I suspect something just went wrong though and he panicked. He has likely been living with the fear and horror of his mistake ever since the day it happened.

I just was reading the paper from Friday. There was a man who's plane went down 24 years ago was just found to be alive and well, and living a lavish lifestyle somewhere in the states! I love it! That is so crazy/amazing when someone can just reinvent themselves like that. I say good on him! I suspect that is what Richard Mcnair is doing these days! I still think about him sometimes, I had a day dream about him today in my hammock. I was in my hammock dreaming he was right there with me. I just know that 25 years from now there will be a story on him! Hopefully it will be one stating they wonder whatever happened to him. By that I mean that I hope he stays clean and crime free and I hope that he keeps a low enough profile that people just forget about him.
What a glorious day is was here on the not so wet coast!
Keep smiling...

Well so much for this being the “wet coast”. Tofino, which is a small community on the west coast of Vancouver Island, known for it’s breath taking beaches, actually had to close down to tourists this weekend due to a water shortage. That is absurd and scary. How can a town living so close to the ocean be short of water? We can send people to the moon, but we can’t figure out how to make salt water into fresh water! Maybe I should not write today. I am feeling a little cranky all of a sudden and I want to keep this as a happy place for people to visit. I think some time on the trails is what I need. I was a little sore after 3 hours of shoveling in my yard and my aggressive pre breakfast run yesterday. I was going relax today, but I am sure things will loosen up again in short order once I am out there. I actually relish the soreness anyways. I am off. More later…
