Far over the misty mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away ere break of day
To seek the pale enchanted gold

The dwarves of yore made mighty spells
While hammers fell like ringing bells
In places deep, where dark things sleep,
In hollow halls beneath the fells.

Saturday and hopeful for getting it back together, but not today

Another day, and some more crawl out of the woodwork. That's an article on the latest in racism and the S. Carolina senate race. Guess which side the racial comments are coming from. While there's enough idiocy to go around in the world, and on both sides of the political aisle, it just seems the conservative side has decided to fall off its rocker and then roll over the deep end.

And I agree, this is one damn scary chart. Yeah, that's how totally sucky it is out there. And how damn lucky I feel for finding this job. Now, if you combine the 1980 and 1981 recessions (which I oh, so certainly remember), you're looking at a similar length, however, not as deep. What sucks is that I've been in the job market for 5 of those. But I'll just point out that the job losses for this current recession started in 2007.

Spent the day glooming through the paperwork. Cleaned out the shredder, and filled a bag for recycling. It's amazing how much you can get rid of when you don't have a certain job anymore.

I should have been reading my textbook. I should have been rewriting. Instead I punted. Not good for getting anything done, and I feel lousy about it.

Yeah, but sometimes you need to punt. Sometimes if you don't step away for a bit, it just gets harder to do. Hopefully the punt will make tommorrow more productive.

I certainly hope so, Vince.
