An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).
- A coworker who was younger than I am passed away last week. It was a sobering reminder of how fragile and fleeting life is. I remember when he got married. And now his wife is a widow in just a few years. Sometimes, with all of the annoyances of daily life, it’s easy to forget how good we have it.
- The fan on the case to our computer burned out and the CPU started getting too hot and setting off a strange sounding alarm from the speaker on the motherboard. It took us a little while to figure out where the noise was coming from and what was happening. And then we had to drive to a store 40-miles to get a new one. The internet is making all but the most common items difficult to find in local stores.
- I saw a TALL cross-dresser when I was out and about today at lunch. Besides their height, the razor bumps underneath their makeup made it clear they weren’t just a tall woman. I see some interesting sights working downtown. Most of which are a lot better than almost being run over by a car.
- Although I’ve sent sever emails to my superiors at work; nobody has been assigned to help on the project I’m working on. I did get an email from one person (in another facility) who volunteered to help when they weren’t busy with another project. That’s no help at all. Who isn’t perpetually; busy in these days of corporate downsizing? And I haven’t heard anything from thing since. I know I’m really just playing office politics which I HATE.
