Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it – no matter if I have said it! – except it agree with your own reason and your own common sense.” – Siddhartha Gautama, a.k.a. the Buddha

Wanna just sit back and watch.

Not post about it anymore, just sit back, read to keep up, and just watch the collapse from an easy-chair.

I like reading Sarahs posts because she helps keep me on an even keel when MY predilection is for wildly swinging anger and depression.  To ground and center, I have to keep the paws busy or I will go vertical with angst.  So, and y’all know it, I am working on the makeover of The Kayak Carcass formerly known as Serena.  (thinking her new name will be Selkie or sum-such.  Definitely a more Celt name, then the bastardized ‘Serenity; Serenity/Siren for the record.)

Today was not a good day.  Though, not a bad day either,    I did get to stick a thumb in the Eye of a former Boss, in a sideways fashion, and that had SON laughing quite a bit.  We did a big job for his company and he has been niggling over details to avoid paying.   I just shuttered his last ‘complaint’ with Custom built latch, then flat told him, IF, I have to come back down there, it will be as an independent contractor, and I charge milage ( I live an hour away.) Flat rate, and cash on arrival.  Last I heard, Bossman was called, and that he was able to pick up the settlement for the job.  Myself and the TURD have had run-ins before, even back when I did work under him.   Dood is a preacher, supposedly, but I have heard cleaner mouths while in the Marines, and on Tour (especially in Noo Joizey.). And I have flat told him, after watching him “critique” another employee, in public, “You ever talk to me like that, in public or private, I WILL break your fuckin’ jaw and walk away.”  Preacher he may be, but I am sure his congregation is warped and twisted like he.

Makng that latch FIRST THING, was what unsettled my day.  I had thought I was done down there, as of 12noon yesterday when I wrapped up the programming of the security system. Best be over it now.  I may get called back as someone ALWAYS manages to FUBAR the system the first month trying to ‘fix’ something they think should work different. (and its usually the keypad system,,,)

Yah, I am feeling a touch pessimistic today.   People are not my favorite creatures.   I definitely have more friends of the Four-feet variety,,,,

I’m not going to go into what BC covers in his post today, but 6 years ago, when the insanity was gathering power for launch, I had much the same response as BC covers.  NUTZ is NUTZ, no matter how many pronouns you toss on it.  

its been a day.  one pathetic enough to wish into the dustbin and memory-holed. Accomplished little worth talking about, but I haven’t blown up or gone Postal so I guess thats a win.

    And, no, I do NOT have recipes for such.
    I do have SOME standards.
    They’re low, sure, but I still have them.
