Expanding Heisenberg's Idea

For those who haven't been introduced to him, Heisenberg is the guy whose name is attached to Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, stating something like the idea that you can determine where something is or how fast it's moving, but not both at the same time.

In the same way that the original Murphy's Law has a ton of corollaries, addenda, etc., I suspect we may be able to add to Heisenberg's findings.

I propose, for starters, one for blogging/calling/other forms of communication. Something along the lines of  "The amount of time available to communicate with others is inversely proportional to the amount of things happening that you want to communicate." Or, more simply, you either have things going on or you have time to talk about them, but not both.  

That's kind of how I feel this week. Between work gardening and work at Statscan, and keeping up at home, and preparing for the long weekend, somehow, the week disappeared. However, work is done for a few days, e-mail is caught up, and Saturday morning I head out of town for a long weekend, and it's supposed to be gorgeous weather. Thanksgiving dinner, some washing of fleece, dyeing, laundry, cleaning out the dye garden...plenty to do but it will all be fun stuff.

Now I just have to finish packing, check the place I'm house-sitting, change the bed, and do dishes before I leave. Happy Thanksgiving to all!
