Thanks Night .. I hope so, but I hate being a bother.
Heres another photo I took sideways 😆... I threw some light on it from a round flashlight, and really liked the effect in the photo. My avatar is
the same . A photo of one of my pictures with reflecting light from a lamp to give the illusion of a firepit. I like playing with reflective light in
This can't go on. Something is going to break. Your neighbour's nose or your brains. All i can come up with is to ask you if you have you made friends
there? Or met some OK folks that you get along with? Maybe you could rent some place where everyone could have their own room and no one would play
loud music or drums.

How are you this Morning? Or is it afternoon for you?
Just a little past 5 AM. I just had my ordinary 2 mugs of coffee and next some porridge. Feels like i am getting over this fatigue, it is still there
but not that heavily anymore Laundry day. Sounds a bit boring, huh? well, boring is good for the time being!
Hi Fin. Landry days are never fun until you see the net result. As sick as I have been I have been putting off washing clothes until today as I will
be without anything clean to wear if I didn't do the deed today. I managed to get three large loads of clothes and bedding clean today. Now my bed
smells clean enough to make me and my cats happy. However, there are the other two loads of clothes that are waiting to be cleaned.
Guess I'll have to have a laundry party and see if anyone in the Shed will come over to help.
It seems the Shed family is under a dark cloud with so many struggling through yet another day.
One thing I hope you can all recognize is that despite your own suffering, you are here for others in their time of need. To me, that
speaks volumes of my amazing Sheddite Warriors. Look at your strength. It's still there for others. No matter how many shadows haunt your every step,
no matter how deep the darkness, you can find it within yourself to still care, to love, to reach out. You make a difference.
We can hold on and take one day at a time or one moment at a time if that's what we need, but we WILL hold on to hope and give it to each other as we
always have and always will. YOU my friends are the rainbow in my life.
I wish that I could have the attitude like in this song that each day is a brand new day and what was in the past is in the past now. Afterall we are
in a constant state of moving forward in time every split second of the day.
Dragons and pixies and elves? Oh my... I can imagine the call.
Neighbour: Hello, police? I NEED THE POLICE!
Police: This is the police sir, what is the problem?
Neighbour: There is a dragon outside my door and a mean looking elf-life person with pointy ears holding a bow! And a ....oWWW! And a painful pixie!
Police: Sir, calm down. Did you say a dragon is outside your door?
Neighbour: Yes! A dragon, an elf and a pixie, come quickly!
Police: Sir, how big is the dragon?
Neighbour: The dragon is huge and won't let me leave. It has fiery eyes that look right at me all scary-like! HELP!
Police: Sir, have you been drinking at all? Some drugs perhaps?
Neighbour: It's real I tell you! Come quickly!
Police: Sir, St. George is currently on vacation, can we send his backup team to you?
Neighbour: Yes, yes! Anything! HELP!!!
Police: Very well sir, we'll send St. Georges' backup team to you right away.
5 minutes later 5 burly men in white coats arrive with a gurney, a strait jacket and a large syringe full of "medication".
Just to add the conspiratorial. A technique used by security services to "neutralise" a target back in the early days was to mix DMSO (a chemical)
with a large dose of some mind-bending chemical and then spread it thinly on some object that the subject was likely to touch. A door handle, a car
door handle, maybe a glass. DMSO permeates the skin so any drug mixed with it would also be absorbed. Then the target could be accused of causing
their own death as an autopsy would clearly reveal drugs in the system absolving anyone else of blame.
No-one need here need ever worry about me. I may get quiet from time to time but still peek in occassionally. I don't always have things to add but do
my best when appropriate and fitting.
The only thing I can control is myself. Other people I can do nothing about. Fortunately there is only 1 arsehole in this building. Each for his own
in a city of 600,000 plus. Thankfully the people I meet and interact with on the street and in the shops are kind and friendly but I hate big cities.
They have few advantages imho.
I hate violence with such a passion you would not believe. At the end of the day, I do not have responsibility for the actions of another. Action,
reaction. And that is what scares me. If someone else really wants to step up to the plate and repeatedly press my button the wrong way....when is
enough enough? After enough presses on my button I will react in an overdrive way, but in doing so I seal my fate. This is not a scenario I want to
let play out.
As for understanding. I understand the person only too well. He's an anti-social at best, or psychopathic at worst, arsehole that thinks he is better
than everyone else and can do what he likes, when he likes. I don't care, as long as I am not saddled with his behaviour. Hopefully I have broken his
behaviour in this building. If not, I will be sure to report him to the rental company. I've been renting longer than most tenants so the rental
company "knows me" and I believe there is some modicum of trust between us but at the end of the day, they just want peaceful and non-complaining
residents who get along.
I wouldn't say I'm powerless exactly but I am reluctant to act for fear of my own future in #ty temporary housing. It's this, or the street. At 47, I
ain't gonna survive on the street for long but if push comes to shove, what other choice is there? Hopefully it won't come to that though. I was
homeless for 2 months before coming to the Netherlands 25 years ago. Since that time I've managed to not do that.
And now a question for you. Please, do not be offended! What the hell is that scary creature in your new avatar? It does not look friendly. It looks
like the stuff of nightmares. (Don't change it! That is not what my question is about.) A pike, a carp, a huge eel? Or something worse? Enquiring
minds want to know, and possibly avoid that beast in real life.
In this city of 600,000 plus I know not a single soul. I spend every day alone. There are worse things than being alone though. I am limited to
this temporary housing. Getting a "proper" flat/appartment takes years due to waiting lists. I am not on the list because I did not apply for it yet.
I'll get there eventually but until then, it is what it is.
What? No one has been here since I left 11 hours ago.
Oh wait, I don't have a life, nevermind.
Edit as I see that our LightDriver has made an appearance. Nice to see you here today.
Our Jacy is having a down day today as it's the family day where she is staying so the women and children are enjoying the visitors. However, Jacy
has no family visiting her. Pop an email to her today to remind her of her Shed family.
