Airhead; Not Always A Bad Thing

Forgot a co-worker’s farewell luncheon today, even tho it was saved on both my work and home calendar. Had to meet husband at Lowe’s to buy paint & switch plates & new door so he could get work done on little rental house.

(Guy at the paint counter offered me an extra large stirrer in case husband misbehaved. LOL!)

Complained to work spouse about being an airhead, missing both items on my calendar. In the process, I accidentally pointed out that she’d gotten the time wrong on this afternoon’s meeting and had erroneously declined it.

Realized I was being a bit too hard on myself. Everyone makes mistakes. Good thing I complained, or she’d have missed an important meeting.

Dropped by retiring co-worker’s desk and wished her well. She says she hopes to lose 20lb over the next year, not being stuck behind a desk anymore.

My Predictions for the Last Season of GoT:

Dragonglass trends like mad, everyone just has to own a dagger or two.

Highgarden faces its first flu epidemic. Cersei sends out troops; flu decimates their ranks, she dies on Arya’s poisoned blade and good riddance.

Sansa sends out letters of petition for a decent husband, Brienne matches her with Podrick.

Dragon eats Euron, Yara takes to the sea, leaves Theon in charge. Hijinks ensue.

Jorah meets his little cousin Lyanna, who sets him to work rebuilding her troops. He defects to the Night’s Watch because sad Jorah, no Dany.

Jamie catches up with Brienne and they are BFF again, Jamie is best man at Brienne and Tormud’s wedding. Jamie and Tyrion reunite. Dany matches Jamie and Lyanna Mormont, there is much eye-rolling.

Free folk settle at Riverrun and Casterly Rock, re-name them Fishy and Rocky. Targaryens settle in at Dragonstone and breed like bunnies.

Arya marries beneath her and takes the Eyrie; her direwolves win all the dog shows. Dothraki take King’s Landing, settle down and get fat. Sometimes seen staring wistfully across the sea until their children hug them.

White walkers lose their sense of direction and become ordinary backyard pests. Everyone has dragonglass, so no biggie! Ice dragon is chained up in Arya’s backyard.

Final scene: Tyrion sitting on Iron Throne, holding up and frowning at a dragon egg just as it begins to crack, breaks the fourth wall to sigh at the audience.

Melting

I read two posts from Wyomingians complaining about science deniers. One pointed out that they are seeing 100 degree summer days, extremely unusual. The second person replied about their getting rain in Winter, which they agreed was crazy. They are desperate; the place they live in and count on has gone unpredictable with changing climate.

Lots of people posted replies, having recently been mislead into the fiction that global warming will cause an instant ice age to occur. This is what happens when people get their science dis-information from Michael Bay films. I suppose the story has been recirculated by some conspiracy talk show host. Seriously, people assume that the giant iceberg that calved off Antarctica is going to cause an ice age to occur.

Because of all the heat.

Have you been sarcastic and had people take you seriously, even after you say it was a joke? Maybe you even explain, point out that you meant the opposite of what you said, but they do not comprehend and keep on with their misunderstanding. This is similar. Explain to these people that our farmlands are going to turn into desert and they think you are telling them that desert is where food comes from.

I do not know how to express to jokers that serious issues are actually real. I spent ten years attempting to communicate genuinely with my ex husband, which he found endlessly amusing. I had no life worth living, being nothing better than a joke to him. I left.

We cannot solve climate change by leaving jokers. We cannot walkout the door and be free of them. They live here on Earth with us. Maybe that is what needs to change. Let's send them all to Venus. They do not care that we are heating up our planet, so let's send them off to where greenhouse effect is strong enough to melt metal.

That was sarcasm. We cannot ship science deniers to Venus. Just in case you thought I really meant that.
