First of all, Thanks to Oasis for assisting me in returning to the site. I value this place and the friends I made here. Sometimes life just gets too intense and you lose touch.
It has been nearly a year since I have been here and I appologize to those of you who were such loyal readers. I graduated last week and am now working as a chef at a "kind of nice place" in Casper.
Jerry and I are alive and doing fine. Work has been busy since we are both full time now since school is out. Weekends are usually devoted to "mom things" or being with Jerry so the computer is sort of left to entertain itself with a Luny toons screen-saver of Sylvester Pussycat chasing little fishies underwater.
Yeah it was my birthday on the 10th. I finally made it to 16. However I will be a senior next year after fighting all my school years to hold my place being one year younger than the rest of the kids in my class. I hate to admit to anyone that I am 16 because people always think I am older because of how tall I am.
I got my final grades back yesterday and I cleaned up pretty well. The only thing I got a B in was calculus and since I don't plan on designing any airplanes anytime soon, I'm not too worried about that.
Someone asked if this site was becoming the new cutter site. Gosh I hope not.
From a cutter's standpoint, That's not why I'm here. The fact that I am a cutter is not a reason to have a journal.
And for all those WANNABE cutters out there that think it is all cool, I can tell you that it is not. People die that way.
Our new jobs at the retirement community will begin a week from next monday. I understand they already have the place 75% filled. It's going to be so cool because not only Jerry and I will be working there but both Millie and Marsha from the coffee shop have been hired also.
Well the truth is out there so they say.
Jerry now has his own journal and has proven to be quite prolific, if a bit embarrassing about it.
You can find him at jerrysplace.
He claims to enlighten you on a few things that I would never have told you about myself. Probably because I didn't think you'd give a flying farg about any of them.
Thanks for the E-mail Llama. To answer your question, everything went well and no, there were no really strange relatives that showed up.
The funeral was quite small actually. Jerry and his dad of course and one uncle on his mom's side along with his grandmother, both of them from Michigan.
I know this seems like an odd thing to do after losing my mother, to make a journal entry in Damon's journal. I don't feel much like taking the time right now to go through the process of signing up for my own journal so I asked Damon if I could borrow his.
I am home from school today and I expect to spend the afternoon with Jerry. I am home because whenever he needs me I'll be there for him. His mom had another stroke yesterday and for a time it looked like she may be in a coma for a very long time but fortunately, (I say that because in my humble mind it is fortunate,) she passed away.
I think I mentioned some time back that the coffeeshop where I work will be closing after some 70 years in the same location. I think that's a shame and we tried to change the minds of the city councel but it just didn't happen. There is a couple who come in here that are in their late eighties. They met in this coffeeshop over 60 years ago.
Apparently Lil_Will was a bit taken aback by my description of him so I will both appologize and justify myself.
He says that he is a bitch and that almost everyone at his school is afraid of him, they say he is the meanest person they know.
OK, well I for one, am not afriad of you Will and I have known some pretty mean people in my life, homophobic and otherwise.
Let's start with Duncan. Gosh I love that name. It sounds so Scottish, not that he is, I never asked him but it puts me in mind of the BBC series "Monarch of the Glen". I got so tied up watching that series on NetFlix that I almost missed an important report for school.
Duncan (in the show) is sort of the groundsman for the liard of Glen Boggle who is played by Alistair Mac Kenzie.
The last two days had been warm but this morning was both cold and windy. It felt like the cold went right through your body. The air was so fresh though that it also was nice to just stand freezing your ass off for a second and breathing in the freshness.
Jerry an I have spent as much time together as school and work permit. We often communicate through e-mails that are frequently out of time with each other. In other words if we could we would IM each other but a lot of the time I am free when he isn't and the other way around so an old fashioned e-mail works fine.
