After affliction and harsh labor, Judah has gone into exile.
She dwells among the nations; she finds no resting place.
All who pursue her have overtaken her in the midst of her distress.
I just read in one of our Imponderables books that what you see when you open a sardine can is not actually a sardine. In fact, there is no such specific fish as a sardine — you’?ll never go to the ocean and see them swimming around in little schools. The contents of a sardine can apparently varies by location and includes, but is not limited to, a 21 varieties of fish including: sprats, immature herring, anchoveta, immature pilchards, and a fish scientifically named Sardinia pilchardus.
On an unrelated topic, the debate in my head rages on as to whether I should charge overtime (or at all) for the AMWA training I went to yesterday. My boss said she thought most of our writers did it on their own time, which is very altruistic of them. I, however, would have liked to spend that time doing something fun and unrelated to work. We took about two hours roundtrip just driving, and I spent five and a half hours actually at the AMWA training. Should I actually charge seven and a half hours overtime? I feel inclined to, since I only did it as work thing; I would never, ever, consider wasting a Saturday with a bunch of middle-aged ladies talking about copyediting. Never. The question is: If none of my other coworkers who attended charge their time, should I still do so?
Now please excuse me; I have a flat tire to repair.
