There is a man I run into in various places throughout the blogosphere that irks me.Â There is something about his comments that just rubs me the wrong way. I suppose it is because he comes across as an arrogant windbag who needs to be punched in the mouth with enough force to knock the stick out of his ass.
Sadly that won’t be something that I get to do nor will I ever offer that particular service. I shall have to leave his attitude adjustment up to fate/kismet/karma or an errant cab.
Been living in temporary housing for several months now. The good news is that it is a real house in a great neighborhood and that it is very comfortable here. The bad news is that most of our stuff is in storage so we all feel like we are living out of suitcases. It gets old after a while.
Not to mention that I have this feeling that when we retrieve our stuff I am going to look at a lot of it and wonder why I still own it. You can “blame” some of that on my feeling like I need to continue to rid myself of unnecessary objects. I don’t know that I am trying to become a minimalist but I certainly don’t need as much as I have had.
I am not a huge fan of December. It means that I have to go through the usual nonsense regarding schools…again. This time of year is when we try to figure out whether the kids stay in their private school or get moved into a good public school.
In spite of what some people may think or have heard it is possible to find a good public school in Los Angeles, but that doesn’t mean that it is easy. If you want to get your children into a magnet you are required to undergo tasks that would have made Hercules cry. I might change my name to Theseus or Achilles just to get a little more juice for my mojo.
Stumbled onto a post I wrote earlier this year called The Radical Honesty of a Life I Donâ€™t Love and asked myself if anything has changed. The answer is that much has changed but I am still not where I want to be. Many of the challenges that I faced earlier this year have been overcome but there are quite a few that remain and I am tired.
Speaking of tired I have been getting slammed with a ton of comments that are questionable and since they aren’t all getting picked up by the spam catcher I am going to turn Livefyre back on for a bit and see what happens. I am told that they have made a number of changes to the system and that it has become easier to use. I don’t know if that is true but we are going to find out.
