Home again

Standard

Just a quick note to say I’m back in Korea.  I got in Monday night.  Only now am I finally starting to feel half way human again.  Jet lag just sucks.  I think I left my stomach somewhere over the Pacific.  The last two hours flying in Tokyo were almost non-stop turbulence.   Top it off with a migraine that took 3 days to resolve…  ugh.  I almost killed a few kids at work on Tuesday.  They seem to intuitively know when you’re tired and sick.

Oh well.  Back to the daily grind.  It was sort of nice to have a little time off, but it’s also nice to be back at work with a set schedule.

Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and wishes.

Offline for a bit

My mom passed away yesterday.  I’m trying to find flights and stuff to go home for a few weeks.

I’m prepared with a slightly increased dosage of Zoloft, Halcion and some Valium.  I won’t have much in the way of internet access because I’ll be staying with my grandmother.  I can cross my fingers that there’s an open wi-fi access point nearby, but I’m not holding my breath.  The average age of the neighborhood is probably up around 60, so not too many tech savy folks over yonder.  I’ll be a the mercy of my brothers and father to drive me around because I don’t have any auto insurance (why pay all that money for the car to sit in the driveway).

Theme Change

Standard

Just trying out the new theme.  I’m kinda meh about it.  But then again, I’m kinda meh about most everything these days.  Maybe it’ll grow on me.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled blogging.

Whoa!!

I’m not quite sure why this pissed me off so much…

i DO NOT WANT POSTS TITLED “CHILD ABUSE” APEARING ON A POST WHERE I AM TALKING ABOUT PAINTING WITH MY CHILDREN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes I am SHOUTING!
please explain why your system is so stupid
secretgallery.org a site about my partner and i, our gallery and our children.

I read the wordpress.com support forums when I have nothing better to do (like at 7 AM when I can’t sleep).  I try to answer questions when I do know the answer.  Sometimes the forums are good for a laugh.  There’s a number of really nice people who take the time to answer questions.

But for some reason, this person’s post really pissed me off.  It’s like, what the hell should we title posts about child abuse?  Happy summer butterflies?  Should I go scream about sites like this person’s showing up on my posts (not that I have possibly related posts turned on, I think there are too many problems with it as it’s implemented right now) about child abuse?  Does this person think that life is all roses for every single child in the world?  I’m writing about it here because if I didn’t, I’d go off in the forums, I don’t think Mark (one of the staff members) would be real thrilled about it.

I guess with all that’s going on in my life, I’m a bit hyper-sensitive right now.  Maybe if this person hadn’t shouted and generally been an arse in the post, it wouldn’t have gotten under my skin so much.  Maybe I’m overreacting.  Who knows.
