I’m not sure why this week has been rolling so slowly. There seems to be a lot of drag on my system overall.
Topics of conversation with SW on the way to work -
Our lack of knowledge about many aspects of mental health and social work.
Ineffectiveness of Health Care, Education, and Prison systems. (and mutual agreement that we don’t know the solution to those problems)
Our best solution was to look at existing systems, and see what, if anything, works better. Making hospitals and prisons for profit seems to be a big error. Coming up with a valid punishment and rehabilitation method seems to be beyond our ken.
Other discussions in the car have bounced around (in varying degrees of knowledge and in no particular order):
- The Bionic Woman (both versions)
- Red Dwarf
- terrible laugh tracks
- James Madison
- our spouses
- hometown politics / rumors
- UK allowing 3-person reproduction
- how people can be induced to remember crimes they never committed
- LGBT / Third Gender miscellany
- Care for non-direct family members
- Meyers-Briggs is as useless as Horoscopes
- adorable animals
- Horror Movies
- Poisson Rouge
- Lego Bricks
- Phineous and Ferb
- Shopping online
Those are the ones off the top of my head. It’s a good portion of why I don’t mind carpooling with him, rather than sleeping on the bus… or worse, waiting for the bus in the rain -
Lunch with the crew at Agua 301. Not bad… probably one of the better places in the region for eats so far. Not as good as Plaza Mexico, but it’ll do in a pinch. The yucca fries were especially fine, and the veggie enchiladas pretty good – though the cotija cheese was undetectable, if it was there at all.
Random moment of curmudgeonry -
