running, bomb tech

Hi, common sense. Glad to meet you.

I'd like to thank my friends for being sane. In most particular, I would like to thank my friends for being sane and not running and screaming and crashing into me because there's a post in lj_biz.

I think that fandom has already effectively demonstrated to the LJ Powers that Be that it is not a good idea to piss them off. I hope Fandom is open to the idea that LJ Powers That Be can be coerced into displaying common sense.

I haven't gone into the comments. I haven't read the bulk of my friendspage today. I was at work all day, and then I was at work all evening. I took a book into the bathtub with me, despite the cold water. I'm an hour late for bed, and I don't want to get any later. There is deep insanity out there. Stay safe, y'all, and please remember if you feel inclined to hassle LJ people, some of them are My People too, and they wouldn't be My People if they weren't Good People. (Of one kind or another.)


Dust storm outside. Visibility is crap. There is the sound of some rain. Dust is making its way inside even though all doors/windows are closed.

Work runs from 7am to 3:30pm at the moment, Mon-Fri. It will be 6am - 2:30pm Sun-Thurs when we finish training. Since we are in Phoenix and work is in Tempe, I have to get up at 5:30 in order to get there. It will be 4:30 when the real schedule kicks in.

The wind chimes sound lovely. Water is splatting on the roof intermittently.

In addition to training, I've been going in to my old job for four-hour chunks of time after I get off the new job. There are still things I need to do there. The new job's pay weeks are not on the same cycle the old one's are, but this calendar week I estimate that between the training and the old job I'll have put in 56 hours. Add in anime night, writers group, and Potterdamerung...

I love the sound of the wind. I'd hate to be out in this, but it's wonderful to be inside and listen to it. I will fall safely and sweetly asleep.
