What is it?

About these new TV's that are as big as a barn? I have finally adjusted to watching it without moving my head from side to side. Then when you want to watch a movie.....they cut the top and the bottom off....and you only get to watch the center. Well fuck I want my money back. If I want to watch a movie, I want to watch it from the top to the bottom. Call me old fashioned but it makes me really mad. What a waste of space.

Talk about a waste of space. Me. Two weeks into retirement and I don't know what I'm doing. I'm wandering around with my feet up my ass. It took some time, but I got both of them up there somehow. Everyone tells me that this will be an adjustment time your life...and I want to tell them to shut the hell up. I don't want to knit, I don't want to volunteer, and I don't want to sit around and watch TV. I want to be doing something useful. So, I got myself a painting gig..... so next week I will be painting offices. And yes, I will get paid. I will come home sweaty and dirty and know that the day was worth living. It's just a small job, but maybe I can get some more work if I do a good job. The best part is that it isn't office work, now I can start to use the muscles I never used before. I am so happy. Plus I love painting. There is nothing more relaxing than being in a space...without anyone around ... and painting.... and have your fav tunes, or downloaded books on your MP3 player.

Best part of it all is you can now choose what and when you want to do stuff. It makes ALL the difference.

Balonie....taking the time to paint a picture.

You just crack my shit up! I think you need to put on that motorcycle helmet and make anutter movie!

Joan said...

Curtis,I'm sure she would appreciate it. How would like being called the "painter" or the "plumber"? If you got something going on....go for it. I know you still feel a little gun shy, but take it slow and see what happens....you are a such a nice guy and deserve to be happy again.
