fenton, lord of the inferno

Okay. Went to the gym, got boxes, set up book sale, packed, threw stuff away, wrote three articles, and wrote a blurb.

I'd say it was Miller Time but I don't touch the stuff and my boss lets me drink on the clock anyway.

I think, today, I did okay.

Tomorrow I fix the bad draft of article #3, pick up my shiny new apartment keys, proofread "Lucky Day," and pack more. I may in fact blow off lifting weights and running in favor of hefting boxes. Or maybe I will go for a nice jog outside, if the weather's okay.

My god. It's full of stars.

We in the US of A spring forward a week from Sunday, by the way, for anybody still confused by the Bushian time adjustment. Soon my sunsets will be later and I will be getting up in the dark again.


Yes, I hate the earlier spring forward date, precisely because I hate waking up in the dark. (It's actually physically painful for my eyes.) Under the old Spring forward timetable the sunrise jumped from around 6:10am to 7:10am, which was still early enough for it to be light when I get up; but under the new system, the sunrise in my part of the timezone will spring back to nearly 8am, which is just like January.

Yes, the longer evenings are nice; however, the sunset is already at 6:24pm in my part of the timezone, so I don't feel deprived of light at the end of the day when I leave my windowless office, and the pain of the dark mornings outweights the benefit I get of having sunset go from 6:30ish to 7:30ish.

The boss....

I had a self-employed friend years ago who told me "I work for a terrible boss." "But you're a self-employed consultant" I said. "That's right," he replied.

Re: The boss....

Yeah, I work for a slave driver. Who thinks I can be in two places at once, and never need any time off.

Re: The boss....

You clearly need to take action against your oppressor. I recommend giving her a good talking-to.
