I’m fine, just totally unmotivated.
Went home for the long weekend, and saw amazing fireworks. We could see at least 30 different major displays at once (plus another dozen little shows, closer), all the way to the coast. The coolest ones? Cubes. I completely don’t get how they do those, and the smiley faces.
Also, did you know that the grip from a 7 iron can peel the flesh right off your fingers, just like skin off a blanched tomato? Hurts, too. I’ve gotten blisters from golf clubs before, but never had it just peel off in a chunk, intact.
What else? I’m fantastically bored. We’re obsoleting my system at work, so I can’t do anything but support. Guess what? Supporting a stable system is cataclysmically dull. Most days I feel like I never even woke up. But I have a job, which is better than many, so I’m not bitching. Mine must be one of those “created or saved,” huh?
Jackson: Meh. Although, I must admit, the “child molester” rants are pissing me off. Nothing was ever proven, and we have that wacky “innocent until proven guilty” thing in my country. Wasn’t he more than trainwreck enough without resorting to that?
Palin: My immediate thought was “oh, so she she decided to run for senate after all.” I don’t presume to know what she’s doing or why, but if she is planning to campaign, for herself or anyone else, I’d rather have her off the public payroll while she does it. Unlike most.
