A Thread for Random Musings

Recommended Posts

Annual personal assessment documents, on a scale from 1 to sucks, suck green slimy rocks from the bottom of a cesspool, through 2.5 meters of used catheter tubing, while you are nude and with your private parts slathered in a mixture of itching powder and peanut butter, and having to defend yourself against a cloud of starving weasels who think the peanut better smells like heaven on Earth.

I'm really struggling to resist the urge to quote Luke Skywalker on the final exams I'm grading this evening.

 

Fight the urge, because I've got a bad feeling about this.

Time may be nature's way of keeping everything from happening all at once, but there are episodes where, like everything else, it doesn't do its job well.

 

I have four different events tomorrow starting at 12:30 that I must/should/want to attend.  The "Must" would otherwise be #3 on my priority list. 

 

Yeesh.

How to strategically infuse developmental advising techniques into email communication

 

If that's what comes out when you try to compose an email title, your credibility as an advisor is down there with the dungbeetles.

Getting really tired of coughing.

 

My sympathies. Last year I picked up some kind of really nasty bug which among other things, induced nearly a week of almost constant coughing. After I recovered from the other symptoms, my voice remained hoarse for almost six months. Since I use my voice professionally to earn an income, that was not a minor thing.

 

I finally got an appointment with an ENT specialist, who informed me that my vocal cords were not completely closing as they should to make certain sounds. This is a named condition (so medically esoteric it escapes me) that involves the cords (which are essentially muscles) becoming strained and tense after prolonged intense coughing. Apparently not uncommon, nor is it uncommon for the condition to last for months. Normally this heals over time, although therapeutic throat massage sometimes helps (but it ain't cheap).

 

My speech is now back to normal. Whether that's good or bad depends on who you ask.
