I had a boss once whose decisions depended on to whom he spoke last. One person could present a case for doing something by a certain date and he’d decide that was the way to go. Fifteen minutes later, a different person could talk to him about doing the same task in a different manner, with different resources and budget, on a different schedule, and that’s what his decision would be.¬† It was like the first conversation never happened. So you always wanted to be last in line when you talked to him.

I’ve figured out my life is like that.

I had a terrific weekend — one of the best and most relaxing weekends I’ve had in a long time. I was in a terrific mood.

Monday (yesterday) was a totally different day. In the morning I found out some not-happy work related things.Then in the afternoon, I had a rather arduous 2.5 hours in the dentist’s chair having a root canal done, and today I still feel like someone socked me in the jaw. You would think that some of the euphoria from the weekend would have carried forward, but it’s more like a new slate every day. It’s whatever life throws at me that day is how I feel. Forget about what happened the day before, it all exists in the here and now. What has life done for me/to me¬†lately?


On another note, the Simponi is definitely wearing off. I don’t feel like I need another shot yet, but I can tell the aches and pains are no longer under control. I’ve updated my Simponi Synopsis page if you want more information.


On yet another unrelated subject, I got asked how I come up with the titles for my blog posts.

That’s one of the hardest things for me to do. I wrote a trashy [award-winning] paper-back novel about a guy who wins the lottery, but was robbing the convenience store when he bought the ticket. I got the entire book written, rewritten, edited and nearly published before I came up with a title (Wake Up With Fleas). I’ve never been 100% happy with the title, but the book’s been published for a couple of years now and I’ve yet to come up with anything I like better.

Naming blog posts is a bit easier since they are shorter and generally deal with a single topic. It’s weird, but I usually have the title in my head before I write the post instead of the other way around.

Other than the root canal, life is generally good, but about to get very busy, so I may not get to post every day. However, I do appreciate the interest and the support.

Thanks for checking in.
