All these thoughts have been whizzing through my head this week. In no particular order:
* You know when you try to hunt for something you really need and you start to work yourself into a completely tizz trying to find it? It's only after you've found it that you realize that you had previously laid your hands on said missing object (that not found would lead to the end of the known world) during the hunt, but you were so worked up you didn't see it!
* I was thinking about the US military's 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy on the drive home yesterday. (I heard the word uniform while listening to a CD that the lovely Chris from Stumbling Over Chaos sent me [thank you Chris!] and my mind wandered :) According to Wikipedia:
Unless one of the exceptions from 10 U.S.C. § 654 applies, the policy prohibits anyone who "demonstrate(s) a propensity or intent to engage in homosexual acts" from serving in the armed forces of the United States, because "it would create an unacceptable risk to the high standards of morale, good order and discipline, and unit cohesion that are the essence of military capability."And that got me to thinking (not about the policy itself, because I have a very strong opinion on that) about whether the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy is applied to other occupations (e.g. fire, paramedics, police) in the US? Because...don't all of those positions require high standards of 'morale, good order and discipline, and unit cohesion'? And don't those who serve in the fire and police departments and as paramedics regularly put their lives in the hands of their colleagues? So...what's the difference?
* Sometimes, when you're as flat as a pancake, having a puddy tat on your lap (especially when said puddy tat isn't a lap cap at all) makes a huge difference.
* I'm sure somewhere there is a math equation that explains why, when your holiday is fast approaching, time s l o w s!
So, what's been on your mind this week?
