in one bored moment, i signed up to receive a reading from an online psychic. she sent me an email writing up some vague lines about my personality (sometimes really true) and what i may expect to happen to me in the days to come. she said that i’m to enter a part of my life where i’m to experience something earth-moving (my term). she said i’d be “in transit”. note that it’s vague, though. how to undo the vagueness? pay some $65 dollars so she’d tell me the details to this “transit”. obviously, i ignored her emails. i only signed up for it because it was free. i deliberately googled “FREE”. what part of “FREE” isn’t clear to Jenna, the psychic?
earlier, i received a seemingly last-ditch effort from her. apparently my “transit” has begun. i don’t doubt that every moment of my life, i’m entering some new phase, but that doesn’t mean i should pay some quack to tell me what will happen, what i should do, etc. if it were intended to be this way, we’d have only the present. the future is unknown because it is intended to be unknown. last i heard, stores have run out of crystal balls. i’m still wait listed.
i must say though: the heads-on vague assertions about me got me curious and i almost daydreamed i was paying her $65.
tomorrow, another transit begins. in 7 hours, i’ll know if i’m destined to be the owner of a G3 ibook. not a clamshell yet and i’m still thinking about whether i should still bid for a clamshell one that’s really, really low-end but pretty, and that’s ending in a little more than an hour. (i’m under the delusion that an apple laptop will make me the writer that i’m destined to be. wait a minute! I AM A WRITER ALREADY. i’ve published a poem and that’s more than other “writers” can say for themselves. ahem!)
see you in a bit for the update on the ibook!
