Funny, it says I haven't posted in 20 weeks. That'd be about the time my ex-job went all soul-sucking on me.

Two weeks into the new job, my chaos zone's gone active again. Monday night, I dreamed my ex-co-workers were dressing me down for leaving them in the lurch. Tuesday night I was doing tech support in my sleep (never restful, this). Wednesday I lost an earring and my badge. The badge turned up; the earring didn't. (It was part of a pair a friend made me, and one I wear a lot. I'm very bummed).

Thursday morning, I realized I'd forgotten to wear the coyote earrings I usually wear with the sweater I had on. Shortly afterward, what looked like Coyote (but turned out to be a cardboard box) turned up dead in my path on the freeway. (Better than a Coyote having that little sense of self-preservation). I managed to dodge. I did not manage to dodge the flowerbed that the sign I was avoiding was cleverly nested in in a parking lot, and have the damage to my bumper to prove it. Friday, I did remember the Coyote earrings, but a major system went down at work a number of times, and the folks who'd know how to fix it were out all day. In attempting to fix it anyway, I took down several major services and almost couldn't get a critical server to function again after a reboot.

I can take a hint. I'm trying to make my coyote ears and yip out a laugh. Because I just have to go with it until circumstances change. Oddly, even though it's stressful, it's obscurely comforting. My life has been a spiritual dead zone for the past five months or so.
