It’s Wonderful, Edgy Wonderful

Today I seriously contemplated that maybe I had some grade A form of ADHD of the working adult kind, only without the hyperactivity. I went into work today, Saturday, so that Monday wouldn’t be so screaming busy. Being that the forecast is iffy, I didn’t want to take a chance of going in late Monday because of frozen things falling from the sky and then being caught in a mess o deadlines. The drop dead ones.

Any way, I was paying special attention at how the music in my head was extra hard to stop. Always I have some melody on repeat throughout the day. Sometimes 1 or 2, other times it might be 3 or 4 doing the loopty doo thing in my haid. Lately, it’s been the melody and 1 line from the Ramone’s Pet Semetary. (No. “I don’t want to be buried in a pet cemetary”!)

I had trouble focusing today. The music, from my head, (not a radio or phone), was very distracting. Lately, I’ve been thinking I need to try this meditation thing. For real. Calm the brains – OK, like right there! When I wrote “brains” I immediately thought about the band the Bad Brains.1 Geez, will it ever stop?! Honestly, I hope it never does:)

So what’s we got here tonight? Ah yes. A little Ten Tings of Tankful:

1) My musical “bad brain”. Music never leaves me. It may distract me when it’s playing in my head but otherwise? Lifeblood people. Life. Blood.

2) More followers on Twitter. Even though I don’t know how to “work” the Twitter. I use it to tweet folks blog posts and such. But I don’t understand the process. Really. One day someone should explain it to me:)

3) CyndotaLoca. You all know her as Cynthia Calhoun of Pictimilitude fame. She be a clark of extraordinary proportions. Yes, yes, that is redundant, I know, but she be moving forward. Important for my people. To be mindful of moving forward. Engaging the world….

4. Took a dry run to the new office last Sunday. Only 40 minutes from where I presently live compared to the 1 hr+ I presently drive. I’m mindful that was Sunday traffic, but still. The new commute hopefully will be better shorter.

5) Very thankful we did not get as much snow as the people up North!

6) A little more reading done. I’m about 180 pages into Earth Afire by Orson Scott Card. Gee. At this rate I’ll get through the next 2 books in this trilogy in oh, another 8 months? Thank goodness you can renew books at least 3 times!

7) The BoSR/SBoR. I too (thanks Clark for giving up the Chapter in the Book) will cite Chap. 60 sec 14.5 (2 free Items)

Therefore, I’m allowed to go straight to

10) Another day.

In the spirit of full disclosure (“cuz that’s what I decided 5 minutes ago, that this year was gonna be about“), Johnny M. was in my head today at work too! Why? How? What does it mean? …whoah, wait a darned minute! Who remembers the X-Files episode? It just hit me. It was Home (The Peacocks). Now, instead of thinking of being a kid and hearing it on the radio, I’m thinking of Mulder and Scully and….damn.

1. Spontaneous serendipiocity? Bad Brains was first named Mind Power. They changed the band name to Bad Brains after the Ramone’s song Bad Brain. I never knew that. Until now.

    I also do not understand the Twitter! No clue. 😀
    Your ADHD workday? That is what it’s like in my brain every single day. All day. I empathize, really.
    Love that Mathis song – reminds me of the movie Chances Are with Robert Downey Jr. and Cybil Shepherd. Great movie. Great soundtrack. And I love the X-Files…love. Kudos to keeping with the “edge” in your titles – I’m always curious to see what you come up with.
    Have a great week!

      Then I shall share with you what I learn….if ever. But I’ve decided I’ll try:)
      I don’t know. It seems to have gotten worse lately. Don’t tell me it’s a part of aging? AAGH! How do you deal with it?
      I saw that movie! I liked it too.
      One of my favorite shows of all time. (Muldur and Scully = clark and roger)
      Thank you Lisa:) You have a most excellent week as well!

    Johnny *swoon*
    You got a serious case o’ musicolalia huh? Actually I think ive mentioned to you about how much music gets stuck in my head. Difference being I would gladly give it up…. but im glad it works for you!


    • GirlieOnTheEdge February 1, 2015 / 8:24 am

      🙂 He was before my time. Just going out when I was really little but still….it’s there:)
      Oh, yeah. Serious case. But there could be worse things, right? lol

    excellent virtual connection trail-following…. (did the same off the Peacock reference)… I remember the episode.
    (For any new Readers, Fox Mulder was a clark (secondary scottian aspect) and Dana Scully was a roger (secondary clarklike aspect)…)

    our Cyndarita is very special… sort of a 21st C Lewiss and Clark (or one of them)… hey! go out to the West, we hear that there’s opportunity there… don’t forget to take notes!)


    • GirlieOnTheEdge February 1, 2015 / 8:28 am

      Thanks. And LOL! I just responded to Lisa telling her about Mulder and Scully and their predominant worldviews. And here was the Master, comment in queue! Thanks for elaborating on the secondary!

      I be taking notes!

    I like tweeting, too. Don’t understand it at all, but maybe that’s okay. Just tweet for the sake of tweeting. It’s another form of music in your head, maybe. Invariably, the worst songs keep replaying in my mind. I dare not sing that Lambchop one about the song that never ends or I’ll never get sleep or anything. I am happy about the shrinking commute for you. Oh, just read Ivy’s comment. There’s a word for that “musicolalia”? Or did she just make that up? Inspired by CyndotaLoca? Never mind. I’m off to read Pictimilitude.


    • GirlieOnTheEdge February 1, 2015 / 9:31 am

      You might be onto something with that, Val. Sometimes I insist on understanding a thing before doing or trying it (the bain of clarks. needing to understand). Maybe my brain is getting in the way? lol I have found that sometimes if you just dive in you can simply learn by the doing. Huh. Maybe I’ll explore the Tweet thing without thinking too much about it!
      Oh man, any song/song snippett or melody that keeps you from going to sleep is the pits fo sure.
      She may may not have made it up…What say you Ivywalker? lol
      Thanks for stopping in Val!

    Tweeting is fun, but I use it for promoting my friends, or for conversations, which I’m not sure is entirely the point. I just use it how I like it, and hang the ‘real’ methods.

    I hate the feeling of having an earworm. I hope you manage to shift yours, or at least displace them with music you’re happier with.

    Keep on keeping on. The new commute sounds promising.


    • GirlieOnTheEdge February 1, 2015 / 2:00 pm

      It is something I shall explore. To have fun. The first sign of frustration? I’m outta there lol

      I don’t mind the earworms and it’s not like I dislike what’s playing, it’s just so darned difficult to turn off sometimes. There is a reason for this. I know it:)

      Keep on I shall and yes, depending on my hours, the new commute is promising.

        See if you can find @Sourcerer on there – he’s the guru for all things Twit 🙂


  6. fangboner1 February 1, 2015 / 2:46 pm

    yes exactly….Meditation is a nice break from the busy that is my brain….But I don’t want the busy to go away completely…

    Twitter…yeah with you on that one… I send out tweets of blog posts…sometimes pictures if I can remember to hit the twitter button before i publish on instagram


    • GirlieOnTheEdge February 1, 2015 / 4:05 pm

      Hear you on that:)

      For awhile I was thinking I was the only “slow” one about the twitter thing! I know it’s extremely popular and a good vehicle for exposure which is why I try and tweet people’s posts. You just never know who’s going to be reading!

      That’s the other one. I’ve known about Instagram probably since it first came out but sign up? I think not! I like the concept but until I get a handle on the little stuff I try and do now, that will have to wait:)

    “Home” was the first episode of the X-Files that we watched, and we couldn’t understand why people were so attracted to the series. Months later, when we watched a different episode, we realized they weren’t all so gruesome. We were hooked after that.

    Glad to hear you have a shorter commute now!


    • GirlieOnTheEdge February 1, 2015 / 7:57 pm

      Yeah, that was a pretty dark episode to start a series lol
      I was fortunate to catch it almost from the beginning of the series.

      It’s more highway intense but shorter mileage. We’re moving at the end of the month. No doubt I’ll be reporting then on the new commute:)
