What the hell is this formula? A line? I think it’s a line, although I thought line was y = mx +b and m is the slope and b is the … intersection? But this might be new math. And I was a Liberal Arts major.
Anyway, the Big!Work!Upgrade! is pretty much a wrap and sweet merciful crap I am beat. I look forward to having no major projects for a while so I can work from sofa for a bit instead of needing the big monitor like I have for the past months. I’m taking next Thursday and Friday off to burn the last 2 days of PTO I that I can’t carry over to next fiscal year.
So back to this formula – I guess if I rearrange the letters I’d get something closer to y=mx+b…subtract from both sides, divide both sides by b…
I’m stuck. I mean, unless slope is also -(a/b) and the intersection – no, intercept! – is also (c/b). I can’t.
- It’s been said (notably by Divinyls in 1985) there’s a fine line between pleasure and pain. How has this proven true in your life?
So the formula IS for a line and I am NOT completely hopeless! *flips desk in triumph*
There is a fine line between the pleasure of eating JUST the right amount of food and the pain of eating too much food. There is also a fine line between the pain of working out a puzzle (crossword, jigsaw, math) and the pleasure of solving it.
- Where in your life have you witnessed the fine line between genius and insanity?
*slyly looks over my shoulder to WM, continues to wordlessly blog*
- Where do you draw the fine line between supporting someone and enabling someone?
If the person is a bad steward of the resources I give to them in support, then the line is drawn.
- Which sides of the fine lines between caution and cowardice, and between courage and foolhardiness do you tend toward?
Definitely cowardice. I’ve written this a million times. I am not brave. But regarding the other fine line – I tend more toward courage then foolhardiness. It’s hard to explain, but because I am a naturally a coward I MUST be courageous. Each time I needed a breast lump biopsied I cowered in fear for days, but on the mornings of the appointment I went in and had the procedures done. I didn’t run away or ignore the appointment. That’s courage. Foolhardiness would be saying “I’m sure it’s nothing” and not having them done. Huge scaredy-cat though.
- Tasked with drawing a literal fine line, what is your writing utensil of choice?
A Pilot Precise v5 rollerball pen in black. Although for day to day writing I enjoy TUL .7mm gel pens in black that I bought from Amazon. I wish I enjoyed fountain pens. I want to enjoy fountain pens but can’t get past the scratching and tendency
It’s supposed to be a gorgeous weekend and maybe I can move my CAE study station outside for a spell. I want to get through the rest of the Tuesday show us your book links. I need to shampoo the bedroom carpet. I should half-heartedly toss some fall decor outside because yay, fall. Whatever I end up doing, have a great weekend!
