Random quote of the day:

Random quote of the day:

“A first-rate scientist, or a fine prose writer, is able to say, ‘How can I know a good poem? I can tell an honest piece of work in my own field from a phony piece of work, but how can I tell a fine poem from a phony poem?’ And what has to be said to such a question is that these are people who cannot trust their emotional reactions, their total reactions.”

—Muriel Rukeyser, The Life of Poetry

I’ve edited out the stuff already covered in this week’s blog.  It’s for the best.

Someone in the next hallway is barking like a dog. Either that or their speaker phone is freaking out. Cool either way. 2 Feb

I really must stop assuming people are friends when at best they are tolerating me. Not as emo as it sounds. Just a statement of fact. 2 Feb

Moral victory tastes like…ash and sod. 2 Feb

I finally remembered the name of those hiking boots I bought I long time ago that I loved. Merrell. Went to website, acquired same. 2 Feb

Ha. Made him look. A moral victory if nothing else. 2 Feb

Sometimes I wish I really could Hulk out. Especially on the commute. Not boring old road rage but rip car in half rage. 1 Feb

Not helping with my self-inducted imposturage mood. 31 Jan

We have motion sensor lights in the hallway. Several people moved from this section so as I sit here periodically all the lights go out. 31 Jan

I think I need more coffee. 31 Jan

Is an imposture someone faking bad posture? Prolly for sympathy. A self-induced Munchhausen. 31 Jan

Such an imposter I can’t even spell it. 31 Jan

Yeah, I’m definitely in a “Who am I kidding?” kind of mood. Imposture syndrome is my boon companion.  31 Jan
