So, say that I shall, right?
After Mercury went direct (yesterday), we’ve had some movement on the job front for Duty. Alas, at salaries 40% lower than he was receiving. If he takes one of these positions, a good portion of my salary at YOPOE will have to cover the differential. Yey?
Répétez après moi, Lisa: this is the new normal. This is the new normal.
And now, random musings (ha! as if this whole blog isn’t, right?)
1. Dear Motorcyclist: I really do try to watch out for you and take extra care not to get in your way but when you ride that machine like a big dickhead, you make it hard on nice people like me. For fuck’s sake, stop snaking in and out of lanes, riding on the shoulder and zooming along the highway like it’s your own personal Autobahn. I cannot watch out for you when you’re doing that. The best I can do is get out of your way and pray you don’t get hurt and that if you do, I’m not anywhere near it. Sheesh. Men, must you do this kind of thing? Must you?
2. Dear insecure person: I’d rather see your heart than your ass. Translation: stop bragging. All it does is show how insecure you are underneath all of the noise and energetic clutter. Maybe someone who isn’t a skilled intuitive won’t pick up on it but that’s not me. Reminds me of that broker I worked for several years ago who would puff out his chest and make a lot of noise to get what he wanted. All I saw was a ten-year-old boy saying “please notice me, please don’t forget me, please don’t leave me out”. Unfortunately, that little boy was walking around in the body of a huge shithead whom everyone actively disliked. Don’t be that person, okay?
3. Dear Evengelical Christian nation: forcing your beliefs on everyone else isn’t endearing you to others, not that you care, I would imagine. I doubt if you’d be so quick to get behind a rule that elevated a religion other than yours to as lofty as place as you have. What is so damn hard about keeping your beliefs YOURS and respecting that others may believe differently? And that, according to our constitution, we are all (supposed to be, hahah) equal under the law.
(This is one I could rant about for hours so I will stop right here.)
Peace out for now, kids.
