My old friend Coca-Cola -- 2001-08-02
 
It just turned 12:30 in the a.m. and I'm sitting here drinking a Coke. I love that drink so much. Granted, they don't use cane sugar to make it anymore, but I still like it. I rather they go back to cane sugar, though it is more expensive, but I don't think that's going to happen at all. Damn that tastes good when it's ice cold.

(few minutes later)

Sorry, I had sit back and enjoy my Coke. It's just above freezing and it tastes better than it did a couple of minutes ago when it was still just cool.

I worry about my Grandma nowadays. She is getting old, and she had a couple of falls as of late. They weren't her fault, but at the same time they did hurt her. I know that larger problems sometimes develop from a little thing like a fall. Besides, the last couple of days I've noticed that she has looked a little tired during the day. I've never known her to look like that before. Then again, now that I think about it, the only time she has ever complained about feeling tired in the past was when her medication was upped in order to control her sugar level. The doctor lowered it a few months ago when the sugar levels were so low that they were causing her to feel fatigued. However, her sugar level went up way high and they put her on a few drug. She was doing great until the doctor said that he wanted to up her medication. Now, I don't know if there is a correlation but at the levels she is taking now she used to feel a bit sluggish.

In still other news, I almost bought a digital camera off of ebay. I found it online for about $80, which made me wonder why it was so cheap. Well, I put my bid in and only then thought to search for reviews. I found them and they were not possitive. It took me a couple of days but I was finally able to find a site that posted pictures taken with the camera I was interested in... not good. Thankfully someone else put in a higher bid because if they hadn't I would be stuck with a bad camera right now. Seeing as I just got a new cell phone to replace the old one that doesn't work anymore I don't have that cash to put towards a good digital camera. This development totally sucks because I wanted to put up a bunch of pictures on my new site. Now I'll have to wait until later this year to get it. Actually, that will give me time to work on the site and find a good, but inexpensive, digital camera. No more bargain basement cameras for the kid here. I should have known that it was too cheap when a decent camera costs at least $250. I'm not used to buying cheap stuff, but this time I was enticed by the combination of the low price and the sticker shock of the rest of the models I looked at. I've come to my senses again, and I'm going to look around town for a good deal on a quality digital camera so I can have some pictures on my site. That was the problem with the other sites I started and never finished... the fact that I didn't have any pictures online. I hope to change that.

I feel bad because I haven't writen a thing for my story in a couple of days. I always find something stupid to do instead of writing... which doesn't make sense becasuse I really love writing. Makes no sense, does it? I did hit a bit of a wall, but that was last week. I got past it by writing until I got something I liked, and it turned out to be the first line I really liked in the story. That's not to say that I don't like what I've written so far, I do. But, this line was the first that I thought captured the essence of what I'm trying to get at. It's little wonder that it does mark the beginning of the point in the story where I start to pay off some of the things I set up until now.

Well, enough of this, I'm off to write... or maybe sleep. It is late. Then again, if I get a couple of good lines before I got to sleep I won't call this day a totally wasted day, which is how it stands right now.
