Damn These Ides
If the Ides of March were always like this, well, no wonder you should be wary of them! Some factors in today's ide-y-ness:
- The first work day after we Spring Forward. When required to essentially get up an hour early, I don't so much Spring as Flop.
- Migraine. I got a headache last night. Took a pill at 4 am. Dragged out of bed with the pain in abeyance, but otherwise pretty blah. (Pain came back this afternoon, coincidentally around the time that sleet starting mixing with the rain.) Though that could also be because of the first point, or the next point.
- Rain. It's still raining. Downpour. Typhoon or monsoon, call it what you will, it isn't pretty. Roads were closed, basements and roads and riverbeds are flooding, and basically it feels like day 39 of the proverbial 40 days. "They" say it will stop tomorrow, but I suspect they are putting that story around because of worries that the suicide rate will rise otherwise.
- Work (of course). The so-called final list we hauled butt to complete on Friday now has questions from several sources. Questions I can't resolve, despite the VP wanting it to be done today. The people who might be able to resolve them? Were not in today, possibly bailing out their basement.
