Back-handed blessings

Today was a good work day. We had training on ergonomics, new software and how to interact with difficult customers. I didn't learn anything new but was validated in my behaviour with some people. It was a good reminder day of how be positive as well as kind to yourself and others.  Plus, lunch was delicious. 

I was invited to go see The Hobbit with a friend and her boyfriend. At first we both thought we should stay home and do all the work that was waiting for us. Then we said life is too short. we all  need fun and several other things to justify our playing hooky. We got excited. I actually had my coat on when she told me it was in 3D. Oh, the agony of disappointment. There's no way I can watch 3D movies. I've been fighting a headache with varying degrees of severity for two months now (yes, I've seen a doctor, no it's not a tumour*).  I do not need to seek out a venue that gives me migraines.  I think I might write to the studios and tell them they're losing customers. 

I stayed home. I wrote for an hour, got caught up on life with DNe, did some laundry, chatted with my dad and fixed the parrot's hut so he no longer screams at me after midnight.  This were all Good Things, one was necessary. 

I have to say though that the best thing was discovering the movie's failing BEFORE we got to the theatre.  That would have been infinitely worse. 

It's been Good to read what's been going on with you as well. Isn't it nice to see how much Good stuff happens in your day?  I like it.

*Bonus points if you can name that movie quote


  1. Yesterday I got to put on a hip scarf and dance for 1/2 an hour.

    1. I love belly dancing, Theresa. It's not only a great workout but it makes me feel so feminine.
