We might make that as an equation (we will) and get to be all mathematical looking, with that fancy text latex in-line code widget thing I saw them mention back a while ago. I think that freelance writer lady I “stumbled over” here at WordPress has got some cool looking equations in her blog (with knitting and nature and cats and whatever science and math has blown in her face and lap); I haven’t checked for a while so that is not much help just remembering her, is it? But anyway, like this:
Reliability = Quality / Time
(pretty simple, really, it’s just one ratio)
We had been working on this slogan for our department (at that place where I once earned my worth in life), and then perhaps the logo to go with that idea, which was that “Reliability is quality over time” meaning (of course) that something continues to have acceptible quality over the long course of time, rather than just being good when new. Reliable tends to mean “as good as ever” and that sort of thing.
In some ways, we are each quite reliable and predictable. Other aspects of our “character” or “personality” or “soul” (if there is such a thing) are variable, like the weather. For some folks, this storminess seems to be greater than in other, calmer people. We like calmer people, unless they bore us to death (not literally) with their blandness.
Seems like some sort of battle, yet it isn’t.
Meanwhile, this gal is local talent. Sounds like she’s the female version of me, in many ways. Oh well, she is not that, since my imagination creates these silly ideas of “me” being like “someone else” when the gender difference is so freaking obvious as to make the “question” of equality impossible to ask.
SO I DO NOT ASK. I DO NOT TELL. I DO NOT SUCK SOCKS THAT SMELL!!!
moving on… (with a “prayer” that this runs and keeps running)
