Don't look at me

Brian's doing the blogging right now:

Work, career, self.

Massive winds caused a power failure overnight and into the morning around here. When we got up we had no idea what time it was. Didn't know if the schools were open or closed. And so we, the family, sat around and discussed work.

I began with my normal bombast.

"Children, when you grow up, whatever you do, do not make the mistake of thinking that your work is something that is or should be an extension of your self, your being. Pick a career that pays well, but choose something that you enjoy just enough that you don't dread to the point of vomitting before going in in the morning, but don't care about so much that you bring that work home with you at night and of neccessity drink yourslef into oblivion."

General eye rolling, yawns, and snorts of derision.
