Once again, not much time for blogging. In addition to not having any time to get blogging done, I guess that I just haven't been too captivated by the news in the last week or so.
A lot of stuff has happened in the past few years, but it's all begun to shift from being news to just being the way that life is. The Iraq war is part of life, our corrupt, deceitful, self-serving government is part of life (although they constantly seem to find new and enterprising ways of screwing us), the destruction and rebuilding of New Orleans and the gulf coast is part of life, global warming is part of life, the bird flu is part of life, the continuing possibility of terrorist strikes is part of life (although the likelihood of such events is up for debate), high fuel costs are part of life, and the uncertainty of America's economic future is part of life. I'm not saying that these things aren't important- just that they aren't new or catching anyone off guard anymore, and so my usual "first impression" type blog entries regarding some of these topics just don't seem all that appropriate.
The new job is good, but the hours are longer and the work a little more intense than was advertised. It's all part of the "Intake" portion of the job which all starting prosecutors go through, though, so this too shall pass, and eventually I'll move on to other stuff.
Maybe I'm just tired or maybe Steanso is just struggling to avoid a downturn in his attitude cycle. I don't know.

Good news is that the Astros are headed for the World Series, and I've got a new job that's keeping a roof over Cassidy's head.
Peace out, ya'll. I may be stuck in court all day tomorrow, so there may be no blogging. If not, have a good weekend.
I'm tired.
Bear with me.

Buck up little pirate. Intake aint so bad. it beats working in a 3 foot tall coal mine. or working as a jizzmopper across the street. And, you should probably be out in less than 6 months. You've been paid less to work more in the past. Summer's gone, but spring is around the corner. Take it in stride and look forward to a nice october weekend filled with houston playoffs, college football, whiskey and horror movies and mono ensembles. and piano moving. lots and lots of piano moving.

Hang in there, Steanso. Intake is temporary. Besides, if you ever get to go to JP1, Miss Betty will show you a whole lotta love.....

Steanso said...

No, no. Intake is definitely not that bad. My office mate is nice and I like the people I work with (which is the most important part of any job in my opinion). I think the biggest changes are just from being out and about all day to sitting at a desk for 3 days a week, and from working in a small, streamlined office where I could just go ahead and do whatever needed to be done to working in a larger, more bureaucratic office where everything has to be approved and go through channels. It'll just take some getting used to.

Also, don't forget the chainsawing of trees for the weekend....

CrackBass said...

what? chainsawing? i was contacted by the epa this morning and instructed not to move or remove that branch, as it has become a habitat for the barton creek salamander.

did you say streamlined? streamlined???

I say you rev up to Halloween with a less than firghtening screening of "Young Frankenstein".

And just be glad you get the UT game this weekend. I have to buy it on pay-per-view in AZ.
