I wish I could quite my job.  I despise my boss and feel like he's slowly trying to force me out by completely overwhelming me.

It's not a good sign when on the first day of school, you're already pining for a career change. This year is gonna suck.

My Reichenbach Falls Theory Jul. 10th, 2013 @ 01:21 am
Okay, so no one cares and no one uses LJ anymore, but I wanted to go ahead and get my theory about the BBC Sherlock down before too much leaks out.  So, you know, I can decide how delusional or prophetic I might have been.

Of course, the how did he do it isn't nearly as interesting as the thought of how will everyone react when Sherlock returns.  But, I guess we have a few months yet before we'll figure out either!

We make our own problems Sep. 3rd, 2012 @ 08:08 pm
I have a friend and coworker "M," who grew up in Albania, which at the time was under communist rule.  She's extremely intelligent and wanted to become a doctor, but because her family didn't have strong connections to the communist party, the highest position she could hope for was a high school science teacher.

During the last few years before the iron curtain fell, supplies/rations were greatly reduced.  Maybe you had some ration vouchers, but the stores were empty, save for something random like a jar of pickles or something even less useful.  Because the borders were closed, you couldn't go to a neighboring country to buy food.  So, they just made do.  When the borders opened to outsiders, they would come in and they couldn't believe the state the country was in.  To the resident Albanians, that's just how life was, and they wondered why the foreigners were complaining about the most random inconsequential things.

Hmmm Aug. 19th, 2012 @ 09:08 pm
Well, I'm back in my apartment after a week with my family.  The visitation/memorial/not a funeral was easier than I expected.  Lots of people came by, saying nice things - as one would expect.  Of course, the gambling addict/manager of the family store was acting like he was part of the family (um, no).  He brought his wife and daughter, who had a look on her face like she was either a disaffected teenager or constipated.  You take your pick.

Well, I posted the bare facts on facebook, but I'll go ahead and use this as a place to go into a bit more detail into my family's issue.

As stated in my last post, my dad wasn't doing very well when my sister and I visited a week ago.  He was unable to eat and so he was loosing weight and strength.  My mom quietly wondered if he would make it to his appointment on Wednesday.  He did and he briefly seemed to be coping a bit better than expected, but was still deteriorating

Anyway, it was soon after the work trip that everyone started arriving, and though it was interesting to see everyone, I had to leave to get back to St. Louis.  When I made it back to my apartment, I didn't do much past going to bed.  It was a long two days.

» Father Update
Thanks lady_of_entropy and velcrobandit for the kind words after my last post.  I'm not really sharing what's going on with all of my facebook, hockey, and school friends yet, and I probably won't until closer to the end, but I thought I'd go ahead and provide an update in my most anonymous bit of social media.

Depressing TMI story aheadCollapse )

I know that was a rather dour account, and probably nonsensical, as the typos I caught were bizarre, but I just needed to get my account down somewhere.  If you avoided reading it, you're probably the happier person for it.
» Unfornate news...
I just received some unfortunate news, but let me preface it with a bit of history, because I can't remember what I've shared here.  About 3 1/2 years ago, my dad was diagnosed with a terminal form of cancer called multiple myeloma.  It's considered terminal because there is no cure for it, but the life expectancy varies greatly based on each individual.  I believe that the average is two years, so he has surpassed expectations, particularly as he is 70.  Of course, with cancer, it doesn't just stay in one place, so even as one treats one type, another pops up which requires another type of treatment.
