Lamentation

Oh regrets...life is littered with regrets. Some of them fairly major - some not so much.

Currently I am in the death throes of regret.

Sure, it is not in the same league as the regret I feel that I inflicted a crappy father onto my daughter or a length of time wasted in a shit relationship. I can distinguish the difference.

As I sit here listening to some great live video recordings that some awesome motherfucker named Matthew Stathonikos got last night at The Age of Electric show in Calgary (yes, the 1st show in 17 yrs) - I am actually weeping, Ayla is laughing at me and I am extremely pissed off at myself for not booking a ticket the 12 times I looked and toyed with the idea on the Westjet website leading up to the show.

SO.FUCKING.MAD.AT.MYSELF. IM.A.DICK. Good lesson learned...no more talking myself out of shit that I really want. Life is way too short. Really...I could have afforded the trip...it is a lot of money and no I won't die not having gone but JFC - I should have jus…

I thought maybe he looked like someone I knew or something but could never quite put my finger on it...then I was super checking out a shirtless picture and realized what had tweaked me previously...there were scars from breast removal surgery.

When your kid accidentally leaves the refrigerator door open all night do not - I REPEAT - do not be a cheap ass and assume the yogurt that was brand new and unopened in the warm fridge will be ok once it is cold again...there is a chance it will not be and you will have to leave work early with gut rot. That's all I am saying on that matter.

It is another rip roaring Friday night in the Conky household...A is on her tablet in her room, dead from the week of cubical torture...I am making myself sit up at my desk b/c I have been laying on the couch too long and feel like a beached whale, crushed by my own weight...all I want to eat are Lays plain potato chips...

My sister has shingles. I call her "The Leper" now...that assface dog has been barking downstairs all night. I have to go down and talk to those ppl this weekend come hell or high water. On the upside - my cat barf carpet cleaner arrived today and it will be glorious. I wanna walk around the house following the ca…
