We all have to do what we have to do to be able to live with ourselves, but how much self-delusion is permitted? I've been talking with a spin-doctor on IRC who can take everything someone says and find an argument (or two). If ones go along with the crowd, one is a sheep. If one defies the crowd or breaks new ground, one is devisive and contrary to the will of the people. For every action I (or others) take that he doesn't like, he finds a way to make it the wrong thing. Is he actually fooled by his arguments? Or does he think I am? Have you stopped beating your wife yet?
We installed a window airconditioner in the bedroom last night. It's loud and I think I woke up nearly every time the fan shifted speeds. I don't know how we're going to deal with this. Maybe leave the fan on low? The only time I've ever used a window airco is when I was borrowing from Tril, and I don't remember theirs being this loud (of course ours has a remote control and timer, which theirs didn't have (because this is before remotes were the cool thing)), so if anyone has any suggestions, I'm definitely open. I suppose taking it back is an option, but I'd prefer not to.
