I’m including weekends in my Strike Count, because
- if they were actually at the bargaining table, the disputants would be working through the weekends, and
- all the days are bleeding together.
I’m only partially to blame for not accomplishing my other strike goals:
- I’m sure my course summaries would be a masterpiece by now, but my puppy ate my laptop power cord -- not his first offence -- so I’ve been biding my time reading and highlighting and stealing other people's computers until a new cord arrives;
- my IPilogue assignment is canceled altogether [Damn you, CUPE 3903, look what your avarice has wrought! that was a 250-wd assignment for god's sake!];
- my seminar on "Termination of the Lawyer-Client Relationship" would have taken place yesterday;
- my apartment’s toilet likely continues to run, but I wouldn’t know because I fled Toronto the day after the strike began;
- likewise the smell in the front hall of my apartment [read: the entire apartment]; and
- as for curing heart disease, if the answer lies in sitting around eating my parents’ food, I’m surely close to a breakthrough.
- making coffee, drinking it, then making more, then taking pills for the headache inevitably induced by the coffee;
- reading about Hillary as secretary of state;
- reading about Hugh Jackman;
- trying to determine if I have synaesthesia or if I just want to have it;
- deleting dormant/unread/annoying blogs from my RSS reader;
- adding things to my girlfriend's reader without her knowledge or consent, despite the fact that she has never used a reader and has explicitly stated that she has no intention to start; and
- making bulleted lists.
I must get out of here. I must get free. Please resume negotiations.
