One-Sentence Journal, Week Twenty-Eight

  1. 04/01/2014:  I hauled my fat ass up the M trail for the first time since last fall and it was a slow, grueling slog that didn’t get better until I fell into bed much later.
  2. 04/02/2014:  Another bane of the social media world is the wider spread of campaigns that have musicians, artists, writers, etc. groveling for “votes” on some-such page in order to win awards, exposure, etc., a practice I have grown to utterly despise, particularly given that in the past I have been guilty of participating in several of those very enterprises myself.
  3. 04/03/2014:  Thursdays are most bearable when you arrange for a vacation day on the morrow, rendering them a Friday (and I have no idea if that was even a viable sentence, but it sure felt good to reflect on).
  4. 04/04/2014:  After a couple years of anticipation, Captain America: The Winter Soldier  hit the big screen and exceeded all of my wildest expectations and hopes, a feat rare in the annals of Hollywood excess.
  5. 04/05/2014:  Orvis, the fly fishing company, sponsored their Second Annual Down the Hatch Festival here in Missoula, including a series of short films at the Wilma, all based on fly fishing, an event which simply cannot be hyperbolized as to the amount of ridiculous fun it provides. In an unprecedented breach of “one-sentence” protocol, I will point out though that Julia really let me down by not winning the drawing for an expenses-paid fly fishing trip to Belize that she had guaranteed she would accomplish this year.
  6. 04/06/2014:  As the first episode of the new season of Game of Thrones appeared on our television screen tonight, anticipation heavy in the fetid dogs-compromised humidity of our living room, I considered the twelve or so weeks looming before us and breathed out loud, “Aw, fuck, here we go again. . . . “
  7. 04/07/2014:  True to form, The Man finally delivered on getting our meager tax refund to us today, a solid seven-to-ten days from when we really could have used it, to which I responded by forging Julia’s signature right below the line that threatens the penalties for doing so.

    Ha ha, good post. Just caught up on Game of Thrones. Read most of the books years and years ago. Breathed a big sigh of relief when we didn’t owe taxes this year.

    I’m having similar issues with some of those things I thought were OK when people started first doing them, but which now seem to have become requirements for promotion.
