Rube (Dead Like Me)

Cell High, by Lough

My phone was working normally today, so I assume that my initial assessment of the situation - that a local cell site went down because of the storm Sunday - was probably the right one. I'm glad that's all taken care of because that was damned frustrating.

I had lunch with Tim today and got an hour of overtime... with the promise of more to come tomorrow. I've decided after my talk with suitboyskin, I'll be blowing off everything else and just reading my book.

I watched a bit of Fight Club today. I haven't seen it in a while. More to come on that topic.

Motion Sickness

I can't read in a motor vehicle that's moving. I get headaches in cars or buses when I attempt to read on them. I've always had this problem, I think I isolated it when I was seven or so. Oddly enough, this issue does not extend to trains. I can and do read extensively on the subway or the LIRR (when I lived in Massapequa). This is one of the main reasons why having music for my commute is so important to me. I can't concentrate on reading if there is music playing, though, so music is required only for the legs of the journey during which I can not read.

I am at a loss to understand what prompted me to make this a LiveJournal entry, but you've just read it, so now it is burned into your memories forever.
