Long days

There are times when I hate being logical. Or having common sense. It would be much more fun to just blog my top, run wild and let the chips fall where they may.

Sadly, I strongly suspect the chips would fall in a pretty disastrous way. Also, this happens to be a particularly touchy period in my life, so as tempting as it would be to go off half-cocked, it also would not be terribly bright. One of those "it will feel good at the time, but will regret it in the long run."

So yes, let's just say there's been some high drama the past few days. On the upside, I have a new job, which makes me very happy. It's a job I've been angling for pretty much for the past nine months. I start on Monday. So that's very good news and it makes me very happy. Granted, I suspect it's also going to completely screw with my summer travel plans, but hey, such is the price for having a good job.

Also, today it was absolutely stunning in Iqaluit; one of the nicest we have this year, and there have been a few really good ones. I think it got up to +3C, but the sun had so much power that the UV index had to have been way up. Cathy and I took Boo for a longish walk this afternoon and I think I got more colour than when I was in Florida.

A new job and gorgeous weather. So that's good.

The rest was just dealing with people lying to me, breaking promises and general craziness. I'll get over it, but it's just so exhausting dealing with bullshit. I suspect I'm out of practice. Lord knows when I was a journalist dealing with lying and bullshit was a regular part of the job. However, today it was probably a good thing I didn't have firearms in the house. Even Cathy looked concerned at various points during the day.

This too shall pass. However, until it does, certain people would be wise to stay out of my line of sight.

Anyway, something happier tomorrow.

I understand the secrecy... but man oh man, I think a lack of a post would have been less aggravating than this terrible tease of one!
Hope things get better fast!

Didn't you work for Transcontinental, and/or Robinson-Blackmore?

That sort of thing would have been your daily bread. You're just out of shape.
