I’m waiting for Mara to come back from the truckstop with the truck. We’re heading out again. I sort of lost interest in this WebLog last week. Mostly because our server was down for a few days. But in the end, when I was forced out of the habit of writing anything, I realized that for the most part I have nothing to say. I imagine nothing is more boring than hearing a truck driver looking over his day. I’ll try to keep that in mind in the future.
We watched a movie last night; “The Ring”. It spooked both of us a bit. That’s kind of funny because we’d both heard that the movie wasn’t any good. I think that shows what idiots the general public are. I guess maybe the average Joe and Jane didn’t much care for it because it didn’t give them the obligatory warm, happy ending. We all know how much Americans like that sugary pay-off. Anyway, I liked the movie. It made me think about a lot of different things afterward, and that’s rare these days. Most movies fade from my mind about as soon as the credits are rolling. But then, most movies are about that interesting. “Lord of the Rings” was certainly an exception. I shouldn’t have been surprised by “The Ring”.
Well, as ever there are a lot of things that I’d like to mention, and there’s just no time. In the end I won’t mention them at all. There’s a lot that we need to do around this house, and we just can’t seem to get started. Most of that has to do with our job, because when we do come home, we just want to veg out and recover. But we’re going to have to rally at some point, or we’re never going to get anything done.
I’ve also been wanting to write about Justice for some reason. Right now I don’t have the time. Okay. Let me say this. I saw a VH-1 show about reuniting old bands. The band this week was Berlin. I watched it just out of curiosity to see how the show worked, and was surprised by the fact that their singer, Teri Nunn, now looks a lot like Justice. I had never noticed the similarity before. Of course, her face (Nunn’s) looks a little different now than it did when she was younger. But the resemblance was unnerving.
Anyway, Mara is right; that I have some unresolved issues where Justice is concerned. I think she’s worried that Justice will show up on our doorstep some day and I’ll decide that I made a mistake in getting married (to Mara). I don’t quite know how to explain that it’s not like that. Justice was almost like a sister to me, and it really disturbed me when she just disappeared. Mara and I both assume that she just wandered off (for whatever reason). But I used to wonder if she’d wound up dead way out in the woods somewhere. I suppose there’s still a bit of that left over. Mostly, I’d just like to know what happened to her. And until I do, it’s going to be like a chapter in my life never really ended.
Obviously, there are issues. Maybe one day I’ll give them a long, hard look. And maybe one day I’ll find some way to convince Mara that this “obsession” isn’t romantic at all.
