Honestly, today's entry is brought to you by the phrase "stall tactic." I've got a lot I should do. Without someone pushing me to get it done ... ah, things just don't seem that important to me anymore.|
Anyway, I'll spend some time writing this and then get on with things.
Funny, like my life I've got a number of things to say and don't know which to pick.
I guess I'll go with real life first than move into, lj stuff, and if I have time bring up a few other things that have been on my mind.
It was nothing serious, but Mom hurt her finger yesterday. Enough that she had me take her to the Emergency Room. After taking an X-ray, they gave her a pain pill prescription for something she already takes and sent her on her way again. Well, by that time it was fairly late, and I drove her back home in what had to have been one of the top 3 worst storms I was outside to experience. The windshield wipers of the car even on the highest setting weren't whisking the water off fast enough, and I was seriously thinking of pulling over if I could have been sure where the side of the road was. Instead I just followed the white speck that marked my lane while avoiding the specks of light that were the occasional other car. As it was Mom and I sat in the car a good ten minutes in front of her house waiting out the storm before even trying to get out of the car and into the house.
Ok, that was the most memorable event of this week so far.
On the job hunt front, ... well, there is a major oil refinery in my city which has announced a $3 billion renovation so it can process Canadian crude oil and so will be hiring I don't know how many thousands more people. Someone suggested I contact the refinery's union and ask them if they can help get me a job. Sounds good to me, now I just have to get my nerve up and do it.
Here on lj, I have seen references in two different friend's journals to a meme I haven't seen. Apparently the meme is advocating something worth advocating, but with the "if you ain't posting this meme, you're against our cause" attitude and there is a bit of a backlash about that attitude (not the cause being advocated) ... Ah, that's all the comment this deserves. More probably.
Well, I don't want to, but I guess I should just move along. Later, all.
