Shadow the cat has developed the amusing habit of sitting upright on the bedside coffee table and staring at me just as I wake up in the morning, so she's the first sight I see when I open my eyes! This incidentally is 04:30, about one hour before I actually must get up, but I usually get up anyway and give her the breakfast she was hoping for. I have by necessity of getting Missus up become an early to bed and early to rise person.

3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
At the moment client appointments purely by chance are bunched into the first half of the week, which is very handy for devoting my time mainly to clients in that first half then doing household and family stuff in the back half. Of course once it gets to the point where I am mowed out with clients, I can drop the Weekend Job and progress from there.
This character has spent much of his life at the mercy of assholes and their agendas. I don't think it's possible to have a life entirely free of them, but I have at least reached the point where it's a minority occurrence. When I get to a point where I can ditch the Weekend Job, it would become a VERY rare occurrence. The focus of this character right now is to therefore build up the Practice to the 7-days-a-week level.
I will then have no one treading on my raw nerves and be free to realize my maximum potential. In this life, all the "good stuff" promises to be focused in the final third!

Weathertrack: The Azores anticyclone, positioned unusually far north to the east of Ireland will split in two, each half moving in opposite directions, south-west and north-east. This double anticyclone will produce the sunniest and driest day of the week before splitting apart.
6. TODAY'S ONELINER
Childhood is like being drunk. Everyone remembers all the stupid things you did, except you. :D
7. NOW THAT'S FUNNY!
In 2012, scientists discovered that a primary reason penguins can swim so fast is that they have a special “bubble boost.” When penguins fluff their feathers, they release bubbles that reduce the density of the water around them. The bubbles act as lubrication that decreases water viscosity, similar to competitive swimsuits.
9. ZEN WISDOM
Character can be shaped or etched. It may be true from a medical perspective that our psychological and physiological traits are generally predetermined genetically. Knowing this, however, adds little to our lives. All that matters is how we can better ourselves here and now.
