I went outside, noticing the lovely weather and the sudden and unexpected hour of free time that suddenly fell into my lap. I sat by the pool, as it was the most appropriate seeming place to sit on a day like today. I read a little more of James Lipton's Inside Inside which I am finding to be a very helpful tool in darn near every aspect of my life, wouldn'tchaknowit? Instead of trying to be pompous about it, which I was in every right to be, since I had correctly informed everyone that we could go outside, as it was not forecasted to rain today. I chose to enjoy it. Instead of thanking me for a bit of useful information, everyone just looked at me like I was from another planet and went back to the the obsessional behavior patterns we affectionately call 'good work habits." And, just as I predicted, wouldn't you know it...
But, like I said, I'm not going to gloat. It's finally warm enough to go outside in a t-shirt, and it's only getting better! I'm from Colorado. If I wanted to freeze my balls off every time I went outside, I would have stayed there. But Tennessee has unusual weather, most likely a product of a warming globe, just like everywhere else.
A volcano erupted in the sea off the coast of Tonga today, too. And for some reason no one thinks it's strange but me. Keleti Mafi , Tonga's head of Geo services, actually said "...we expect this to happen here at any time..."
The last one was in 2002.
OTHERWISE, things have been steady. We're all ready for Earth Hour and the game of flashlight tag at the Park and, of course, the show! Kitty is unleashing some insane designs and I get to be the form everything is contructed on.
Who had any idea this was a real job?
