I feel like it was an exceptionally long day today. Probably all in my head because I was out of work at the usual time. I think I can attribute the feeling to the fact that I’m learning new paperwork this week and this am was devoted to working with that while I was fighting a migraine.
Fucking migraine. It was one of the foggy-eye ones, so that I could only see out of the right-most portion of my left eye, which made it pretty much useless. Squinting at numbers when I only have a half-assed idea what I’m doing does not make for a relaxing time. Oh well.
On the upside: we have groceries.
I’ve also written some poetry, which is lovely, considering that I’ve not done much in that ballpark for the last…. two months. TWO. FREAKING. MONTHS. My head’s been too full of new crap from work and resentment that I’ve not had the urge to even string more than six words together. Which is probably to blame for my recent penchant for titling my blog entries with song lyrics.
Tuesday I went to a movie with Lady J from work. We saw An Inconvenient Truth. It made me angry, which I’m sure was it’s intention. I recommend this documentary for the value of it’s message, if nothing else. It’s important to look after our planet after all.
I tried to talk to J about it afterwards, but he couldn’t let me finish a sentence without having an opinion and we ended up having an argument about ice. When a single ice cube in a glass of water melts, the “tide line” doesn’t rise. BUT if you have a whole bunch of ice cubes all piled up so there’s one that’s not floating in the water, when it melts, the water level will rise. I was trying to exlain how this applied to polar ice caps because I wanted to say something about water levels – don’t recall my exact point right now, because we never got past the ice cube argument. Ice in the water, when it melts, doesn’t raise sea level in a serious way. Ice that’s sitting on a landmass will when it melts. No? I think so. J was trying to convince me that the water level’d rise no matter which ice was melting when that really wasn’t the point at all. Such a stupid argument, and so freaking typical these days. Rrrr. Don’t know why we can’t have a normal conversation these days.
AAaaand good news: J has a new job! He starts Monday! Whoo!
