Wot I did on the weekend by Tats

This morning was one of those Mondays when I woke up staring down the barrel of getting up and dragging my ass to work 5 days a week for the rest of my life and it was daunting. I like my job, I definitely like the money, but if ferrouswheel is right, my life is a mighty long time, and chats with dreadbeard last week reinforced my notion that capitalism is broken, and and and..

.. bleh. We're all so tied into it that most of us can't see any other way of doing things, and short of swimming upcurrent* I'm not sure what to do about it.

And at some point I'd better swot for my exam.

Oh, interesting thing about The Kid. Turns out the struggle to get homework sorted isn't because I'm a crap parent after all - seems that prior to coming to Wellington he'd never done it, so we're in the habit forming stage. It's.. more than a small relief to hear that, and somehow makes it easier to know that it's not just my lack of discipline that's making it hard.

And I got sideswiped by inspiration for KB art. Uh-oh!

* Been there, done that, busted my ass (actually my carpal tunnels) and ended up buying into the system for the easier life and the fringe benefits (ie money).
