Nothing major, just a few new links added to the sidebar (specifically, Mac-a-ro-nies and Silver Rights, both of which I've been reading as regularly as I do anything these days [addendum: as well as RedHeadDread and didn't-I-mention-doing-this-ages-ago? e-schwa -- hello, my name is Aaron, and I'm a flake]), and a heads-up that I finally got 'round to changing the link for Dru's place a few days back.
Several friends have started livejournals since I last did anything with the links, but I'm not sure how public those are meant to be. Meaning I should privately ask in email rather than on the site. Duh. Um, write and let me know if you'd prefer not to be linked for the Great Unwashed, 'k?
Sorry for the lack of commentary on current events, but it seems like that sort of thing should be low (if not absent) from my list of priorities right now. This morning I found out my services would no longer be required at my (temp, part-time) job, and I'd missed another assignment for this week due to not returning calls promptly enough. Oh, and my paycheck for last week is probably in limbo due to my not giving the proper address information. And I found out from Minnesota Workforce Center that my work history for 2002 qualifies me for exactly nada in terms of benefits.
Think all that was before noon.
I had a feeling today would be a bad day, though, because the last few have been so good. It's the Universe's way of pointing out that I need to be able to deal with both kinds of days, I suppose.
I'm working on it.
But, as I said, political ranting, cathartic as it is, just isn't in the cards for the near future. Unless anyone knows of a company in the Twin Cities that keeps a very lax eye on employee 'net access. . .
(Should I be joking about things like that, since any company worth its salt will be doing a Google search on my name as part of the hiring process? Given the rest of this site, should I really worry about one more ill-considered attempt at humor? Is anyone still reading any of this?)
(I kind'a hope not)
I almost typed that I'm in one of those transitional phases again, but have been reliably informed (repeatedly, but the point was lost on me the first few hundred times) that life consists of an endless series of transitional phases, and settling into a routine is setting yourself up for disappointment.
This site was part of my routine for a very long time, but now I wonder if it's something that should go.
Or, like so many things, if it's something that's been gone for a while, and I just haven't realized yet.
There's a half-finished entry from Friday I never got 'round to posting, which captures why I was feeling so good that day, but I couldn't possibly match the tone now.
So I'm paradoxically tempted to put what's already written up anyway.
Right, think that's enough public working out of issues for one day. . .
