Hmp. Couple of heavy posts lately.
One of you may be asking...Where's the mildly amusing? Well, before you bitterly edit your news reader subscription let me inform the few of you seeking entertaining commentary and not finding it for the last week or so is because I'm in a lousy mood and I'm sharing it. The internet lets me ensure that my bad mood spreads further than the confines of my immediate family and I'm taking advantage of it.
Fact is, I have no idea what I will be doing and where I will be living in about a week or so. Many shoes are in the air waiting to drop. Unfortunately all the metaphorical footwear are being held in the clumsy, less than competent hands of others. Sure, control is an illusion but there are some Cockrum-era Princess Projectra-level illusions momentarily in control of my life and the welfare of my family. The result is I am annoyed. Without breaking my pledge not to air "Woe Is Me" tales like many bloggers, clues to the reason can be found here and here.
I realized how upset I was getting when I read the recent issue of X-Men with some sort of art by Humberto Ramos. I was feeling pretty irrational over how bad the art is.
Not that anyone is going to file a missing persons report, but I may disappear for a few weeks until I have access to the net and my computers and hardware again. Any future Grocery Store Artifact entries will likely be from the viewpoint of the angry, recovering from a recent food-poisoning consumer with a unique perspective and not as one from from behind the scenes.
I've finally got a meeting with a few corporate types higher up on the food chain early next week. We'll see what happens.
