so I’ll just blather.
Checked the Vancouver open mic scene. There’s nothing I want to do until the 18th of March… I put it on the calendar.
Jeff’s up doing garbage, it being that time of week again.
Watched The Bank Job last night. I quite liked Jason Statham as a venal everyman forced to think fast.
I am going to try to get to work early this morning, the weather was supremely uncooperative yeesterday. I left 20 minutes early and got there 2o minutes late. I hope the person who made the decision to put the office at the top of that bloody hill gets a sound caning at some point.
We’re in the Phony War part of the depression. Nobody but the homeless believes it’s happening. You can still get sushi and big screen tvs. China’s governors are proclaiming 8 percent growth this year. I cannot believe, after closing 65000 factories, that anybody in China or out of it could spout such nonsense. Global and domestic demand has plummeted. There are millions of unemployed who left the cities to go back home so as to at least be able to mooch food off their families. They sit around smoking and gambling and getting into trouble, and this is going to help domestic tranquillity how?
Katie has a plan to move out of her dad’s place and in with two girlfriends. I know for a certainty this is not going to end well, and I can’t do or say a damned thing about it. She can’t really move until she has a job, and I have tried to help her with that, including a snotty voicemail to change her equally snotty voicemail message. If I was an employer and I heard that message I’d slam the phone down and say ‘next’!
Darwin is the cutest baby I didn’t give birth to, but I’m sure he’ll lose that crown when Tanya’s tamaiti is born.
I left Grampa’s stories in Paul’s car, and now he and Keith are reading them. Bwa ha ha! My evil plan is working. That would be the plan where I do things by accident and things turn out well anyway.
I can’t think of anything else and I should shower and caffeinate and swap laundry and depart.
