Yep. I'm setting new records for not posting. I just can't seem to get over this writers block. My excuse is that I spend all day at work writing emails and reports and god knows what else, so feel little inclination to further write at the end of the day.
That, and I always see other blogs that wax philosophic and share (mostly) hilarious every day insights and literary analysis, and feel that I have to share something similar. At one point, I was telling myself that if I couldn't write along those lines, I shouldn't be blogging.
Well, to hell with that. I was inspired today by two different things that made me rethink this whole approach. One was my grandfather. He makes daily records of the weather, and any other basic activities that filled the day if they are of interest. I took a browse through his book, and found it neat that he has recorded such basic details. They take on neat sense of history when examined a year later. Especially if you're pushing 81, and have difficulty remembering what happened last week. (hey, he jokes about it more than I do) The other was my friend Ian. He follows the same pattern, and posts online. Basic and to the point. It is a lot easier to review after the fact. I don't know about you, but I just don't have the time in my life to read half of the garbage that I write, let alone the stuff that others pump out.
So here goes.
It was day two today of work in terms of the great email assignment experiment. Basically, people were complaining about other team members not reply ing to their fair share of emails sent to us by the public. So I have put in place a system where I assign them instead of people picking emails out of the common box whenever they like. It was actually pushed by other members initially, and it has so far worked. Not all reacted favourably at first, but these things take time. After work, we had hamburger helper. Which only agreed with one of us. After, I went to my grandparents, and we talked, and played cribbage. I lost both times, getting skunked by 50 points. It was brutal, but we had fun doing it.
I'm now at home with Krista and the cats. Have to go to bed soon because I'm getting up early to walk to work. For my health. And because we have one car. That's another story.
Election is coming soon. I don't think anyone in their right mind is going to want to call this one.
