Last night, I was not as productive as I should have been, which was mostly the fault of an indulgent deep-fried appetizer and Being Scott Malkinson; I trod through a thick bog in a mental fog. At least I have set up the mobile app from my insurance today.
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah / I think I did it again
“She’s a Little Runaway,” opened Dana & Parks with Scott talking about how they have mementos from every single remote broadcast if ever done in a room and he was only embarrassed because another adult, the teacher of Dana’s son (he’s an intern at the station twice a week), was there.
A friend contacted me early Tuesday morning to see if I would bring a burrito from Jose Pepper’s for their special. By the time I got to the restaurant, I had been awake for two hours and lost an hour of sleep and had had nothing to eat. The place was as busy as one would expect, everyone except I, since the weather was finally warm again. I sent a text to say that I had failed her, so I got the fish combo from Sonic and I cried as my low blood sugar carried me away with my emotions when she called later to say everything was going to be okay.
Ah, geez. Rick (the following Japanese theme song is rather raucous), “Kill Me, Baby; Baby, please kill me,” while I concede to a refreshing naivete (seriously, ‘skunkweed’ was something I had never heard of nor smelled until I was standing outside my twentieth high school reunion), I have moments of painful awkwardness which I frequently overthink later, especially when talking at the girl I like.
Because of where I work and the nature of the work, I cannot mention anyone with whom I work, “The names have been changed to protect the innocent,” so The Girl Next Door, as confusing as that is, literally sits next to me and I have spoken to her awkwardly and recently two times in as many months.
“Stale zaniness 063,” where I was concerned about when seating would be rearranged, was also a day I suggested that I could put a larger pony at desk (I make no secret about my affinity for My Little Pony) so she could find my new location. In fact, I realize she is not likely to seek me out and I start nearly all of our converstaions.
The second time was Tuesday night. Besides Being Scott Malkinson,
I didn’t sleep well, had soda instead of coffee, so I was tired and out of sorts.
While I was in training, she broke up with someone at work and cried for three days, according to my colleagues. She has since found someone new and she and her former boyfriend had a nice conversation.
I asked deliriously, “So are you two are a thing?”
“As perfect a Thursday,” while a useful title, does not really capture how good work was for me when I returned to productivity after I went home sick the previous evening, “Look who’s back, and feeling prime!”
Necessary to illustrate how I feel as I’m not very good at getting things started, backdating this post is not anything I like doing and Being Scott Malkinson means my health and any professional success are inextricably bound together. I eat two bananas a day now; they give me energy and manage my moodiness.
“The LORD is my light and my salvation;
whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life;
of whom shall I be afraid? (Psalms 27:1)”
“At the edge of our hope, we are ‘canceling’ the apocalypse,” so seating has yet to be rearranged; I continue to have physical proximity to those with whom I have found emotional closeness. I had to relocate for two days, but the new printer is really sweet!
“The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish,
but that all should reach repentance. (2 Peter 3:9)”

“We’ve all got our own funny moods / That sucks!”
Being Scott Malkinson, I want to blame that condition alone, yet I went to bed too late, and I have not been eating right; these things make days at work more difficult, “And that‘s all I have to say about that.”
“For if, because of one man’s trespass,
death reigned through that one man, (Romans 5:17)
much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.”

The results were far from “Whirlwind weekend 008,” and I dispute gaining twenty pounds; I observed a difference of fifteen pounds later in the day. I am actually going to exercise daily, some day soon. I have resumed supplements to lower cholesterol.

“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have the opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith. (Galatians 6:9-10)”

Now, I’ve written a time or two about Being Scott Malkinson, for which I thought I had to have another appointment to get my prescriptions refilled, but this is not the case and the experience at the Walmart Pharmacy turned today around.
Yesterday, a colleague at work lost a sibling (something I understand well), and her absence at lunch led to a discussion about loss. We explored grief and reminisced about a film by Seth MacFarlane, ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West’
“But let all who take refuge in you rejoice;
let them ever sing for joy, (Psalms 5:11-12)
and spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may exult in you.
For you bless the righteous, O LORD;
you cover him with favor as with a shield.”
