“Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.”
I used to believe that. Sadly, I’ve uncovered some seriously malicious stupidity in recent days. Why have one, instead of both?
Also, whatever happened to “Lead by example”? In most gigs the last decade or so, it’s been a case of “Do as I say, not as I do.”
Ah well, no big whoop. I’m not going to harp on the limitations of others. Meanwhile, I have a new place to get ready for a move-in and folks to be friendly with.
This weekend, I put the starting moves on boxing up all non-essential goods… I think that I can get everything over to the new place in one trip of a U-haul. The tile is down already, and it’s getting an acid wash shortly… New sinks, a new commode and running a little cable for phones will happen over the course of this and next week.
Basic condo info – One bedroom, third floor, pool access, washing machine two doors from my place, ($.75 a load) a clubhouse with a pool table, library, ping-pong table and meeting area (would’ve been fantastic for gaming back in the day.) Ceiling fans in the bedroom and living room, both high enough for me to walk under comfortably. Maintenance covers the cost of basic cable… I’m not a big fan of Comcast’s south florida service, but free is free. A lot of nice grounds to walk, with a fairly large iguana population by the lake. Walking distance to Federal Highway, which is a major mass-transit backbone. Central Air. Built in 1969. New Fridge and dishwasher. BBQ grills outside here and there. Garbage disposal. Covered parking. Super tiny elevator, or groovy large steps. Hurricane Shutters.
About here. ( about 16 miles north of where I live now).
Looks like I’ll be getting out of Ft. Laud right before Hav gets back from Gitmo.
An Hour with Hourman and Teen Titans vs. The Doom Patrol… by Mike Allred! Happy geek vibes.
Henry Pym and Ralph Dibney don’t count as junkies, though they are also pill poppers. Also.. um, Dan Garret (Blue Beetle I) and his vitamin 2-X, Super Goof…
Being a pedestrian in a region with no street lights / traffic lights is a scary thing. I avoid those regions wherever possible.
Newt and I had a nice conversation this morning. I have no idea what it was all about, except that he’s a cutie when he’s sleeping with his paw over his eyes, belly up… looks like a swooner on a fainting couch.
