Plans: recover, study
A.M. Prayer: Saturday, normally attributed to the fertility goddess, Saeter, we pray to Sibba/Sif, lighting a green candle (for fertility):
Sibba/Sif let us see you in all the growing things that sustain our lives. Help us look beyond the packaging and promotion, to the richness of the Earth from which all bounty comes. When ordinary eyes see only corn, let me see your golden hair hid in its silk. When others see only bread, let me see the grain, beyond that, your smile and laughter. Feed our might and main, Holy Sibba/Sif, that we may do our work in the world. HAIL SIBBA/SIF!!
Born of Fire, born of ice,
Life is lived at such a price.
Holy Runes send my way
Advice on how to spend the day
Outcome: Well, that’s not too encouraging
Finally feeling a bit better: so, out of about 10 days of spring break I will have spent about half of it sicker than a mother fucker, all thanks to a couple of new prescriptions to which I had allergic reactions. People wonder why I don’t like going to doctors: scheese!
Eating carefully, keeping food down
Audie asked me to make a double cheeseburger run and I was so happy to oblige. Burger King has the best double cheeseburger and fries deal but McDs still has the best drink deal. Since they are so close together I opted for two stops. The McDs at Seneca and Pawnee has to be about THE WORST here in ICT. It’s a Roy McCalla store. I worked for McCalla many years ago as my first management effort. He bought a few stores when the franchise was split up. What was a really nice store soon began to deteriorate in more way than one. The store at Seneca and Pawnee tells me that nothing has changed and probably has gotten worse. All I wanted was a $1 drink. I had to stand there to hear a customer, a counter person and a manager argue as to why the customer didn’t deserve to get her money refunded. If I would have still been a manager there would have been no questions asked, but this manager just was not going to refund her whole order for taking 14 min to fill an order plus the food was cold. I thought, man, customer service is dead at this store. So if you’re in the ICT area, avoid the McDs at Seneca and Pawnee at all costs! So I just got my drink and got the hel out of there! It’s amazing how those little McDs employees get on huge such a power trip!
The trip to Burger King was so much better!
I’ve been meaning to go get some cleaning equipment for the DVD player because it just hasn’t been behaving well. At Best Buy I found out that the cleaning equipment cost just a bit more than an inexpensive replacement DVD player would cost; so, I just got a new DVD player and called it good!
Tried to study: just no into it…no beginning at all, I guess.
P.M. Prayer: All you gods and goddesses bless and keep your Holy Folk. From the cold shadows of the glaciers to the colder shadows of space, always, we have been your people. Guide and guard your North folk as you did in ages past. Wodan/Odin, give wisdom and craft to wits shaped by ice and fire that our foes be foxed. Donar/Thor, give us strength and the will to use it. Ing Fro/Freyr and Uualburga Frouwa/Freyja, give full wombs so that bodies will be found for the souls of heroes. Let your Northern Folk grow in number and in power, so that our kind may live, love, survive and thrive, not just today, not for a millennium, but for ever and ever!
P.M. Rune: none
