Black dog gone.

Standard

Only the one bad day. This is good.

Stinkin hot today. Am on call and will have to go in to Bundy (not the liquid variety, the suburb). Good that the calls to me are being vetted first by the after hours supervisor, so I got a great night’s sleep last night. Hope it continues this way.

No actual exercise planned for the day, but plan to go walking around air-conditioned shopping centre. Yay for incidental exercise. Will either go for run or do step class tomorrow.

My brother in law is coming around for dinner tonight, he is vego so have planned a menu of potato frittata, quinoa salad of some description, and green salad.

A little something that somebody emailed me below. All gen X’ers (and gen x like gen y people) and older will appreciate this.

An Obituary printed in the London Times Interesting and sadly rather true.
 
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has
been with us for many years.
No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago
lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:

– Knowing when to come in out of the rain;

– Why the early bird gets the worm;

– Life isn’t always fair;

– and maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more
than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned, but
overbearing, regulations were set in place.
Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a
classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch;
and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his
condition.

 
Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job
that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly
children.
He declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent
to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and
criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense took a beating when you couldn’t defend yourself from a
burglar in your own home, and if you tried to use force, the burglar could sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to
realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot.
She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge
settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his
wife, Discretion, by his daughter, Responsibility, and by his son, Reason.

He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, I Want It Now,
Someone Else Is To Blame, and I’m A Victim

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone
