Improved Forecast

Never underestimate the power of a good cathartic cuss, or three.




Um, I'll buy a vowel please.


I'm in a bit of better place today than yesterday. First off I had a better night's sleep last night, which certainly helps the overall outlook. I've also received confirmation that my holiday leave for next week has been approved (Hell yeah!), and I had a couple of chats with some of the managers to unload and let them know how unhappy I am about the work deadline situation. Lastly I got the ball rolling on the house renovations, by organising some painters to come and give me quotes early next week. The sooner that is done the sooner I can get the housemate situation sorted.

Also, at the end of this week my friend Robbie is in town again from Melbourne, so it'll be nice to end off a rough week by catching up with him for dinner and a few beverage items.

So all in all, a little brighter outlook today.

Ash Wednesday....all the revelers are recovering. I didn't see a single person yesterday with the BLACK SPOT, for the first time I can remember. The old people around here are still from the "don't rub it off" school where sometimes you seen remnants of the anointing for days.

I adore that image! wherever did it come from? Good luck with the painting and housemateyness and everything, including the spiral effect you mention in your next post, all power to my fellow attemptive avoiders of that state. PS. the last 4 letters of the word verification thingy are "frox" I love it- I shall take it as a sign!

Michael - I remember the Black Spot too. We weren't allowed to rub it off when I was a child, lo those many years ago. "Remember, man, that thou art dust, and unto dust thou shalt return". Brrrr!
