Cold Blooded Old Times

Some lessons have to be re-learned. Over and over again. I’m too trusting. Too often I take people and situations at face value. And I tend to think out loud without filtering what I’m saying enough. This isn’t the best combo and I find myself getting burned by it again. Having to figure out who is sincere and who should be kept at arm’s length is exhausting. The highs of the last week or so have been tempered by some pretty shitty lows. But focusing on the positive, in photos:

  • The Clockwork Shop Warming Party was a big hit. Thanks to all who dropped by!
  • Saturday’s Skoal Kodiak set at Art-A-Whirl was AMAZING.
  • Also incredible that night, King Khan & The Shrines at the Triple Rock. The sold out show was so very crowded but so totally worth it.
  • Sunday was more Art-A-Whirling, this time with my son (who’d enjoyed a sleepover with friends the night before). We just avoided the pig roast at Gastro Non Grata and focused on socializing.

Was hoping for some downtime this week, because the next few weeks will be ridiculously busy, but no dice. Sharyn is NO SLOW ALL GO for the foreseeable future.

Bonus: Do you think the benefits of privacy outweigh the creepy factor?
Plus: RetroRama returns to the Minnesota History Center May 21st.
And: The World Beard & Moustache Championships 2009 are right around the corner - May 23rd in Anchorage, Alaska. I’ll be rooting for Eric (aka dogseat) as always.

    Yeah, it’s not feeling all that great either. Which makes me want to hunker down in hermit mode, but I’ve got too much to do for that. Oh wells.

    Uh oh. What happened after we parted ways yesterday??

    You know I totally get the poor brain-to-mouth filter (blunt & tactless all my life), but I’ve never really noticed it in you. Unless you just say relatively innocuous things you wish you hadn’t, which I also get! But we live & learn I guess.

    I am one of the sincere ones, at least. :)

    Hanging out with you guys was definitely the highlight of my afternoon - and I do love how straightforward you are. I get you. There’s no guessing. I often wonder if I’m on the high functioning end of the autism spectrum, right along with my son. Because human behavior can be so baffling to me.

  5. Well this is MN. I think you’re supposed to be trusting. I mean, people still take checks at a lot of businesses still. But I gotta agree figuring out who’s genuine and who’s not is a pain in the arse.

    Exactly! And I feel like I get it wrong all too often. But live and learn and all that.
