Open Blog/Personal Day

Apologies for being AWOL, and thanks to the cobloggers for covering, as usual.

I had a rough weekend. Nothing huge in the scheme of things, just dealing with a long-festering issue and trying to figure out where I go next. The boil is lanced, now*, and my mood is actually improving a bit, so hopefully I won't be a complete goldbricker going forward.

* Festering and boil are used metaphorically. I don't have the clap or anything.


Utterly, Utterly Unrelated: Not even sure why it's part of this post, so unrelated it is.

Here's a bit of pith that's occurred to me, in an unrelated fashion: In any relationship that ends up failing, the person you're dating will reveal, clearly, the chief reason for the inevitable break up within the first three dates.

You won't realize it. Your ears may perk up a bit at the revelation of a temper issue, or an uncaring manner, or etc., but you'll put it out of mind and figure what you just saw is an aberration, or what you just heard is exaggerated. You'll just blow it off.

But three months, six months, a year on, that issue you knew of within three dates will get to be too much, and that will be that. And you really should have been paying closer attention, and if you had, you really could have foreseen it all.

It's like that danger sense they talk about in self-defense classes, and urge people to heed it. You suppress that danger sense at your own risk.
