Moo.

HELLO FROM REHAB!!!!   Not sure if anything's been shared but Sunday dinner at my parents' a couple weeks ago was in fact an elaborate ruse to stage an intervention.  Actually it wasn't very

Everybody take a minute tonight (or today) to raise a glass to HeckDad.  My sister just called to tell me that he passed away at home.  Don't have details other than he fell, but he was 94 with a bad

Hypothetically speaking, if one were to find it necessary to make a second visit to the dispensary in the same Vegas trip, that would be suboptimal, right?

What with all your glaucoma? Totes fine

Did John Bender get clipped? The Raccoon thread is in need of an update. 

Probably, he was getting pretty ornery the other day

it ties in better with the raccoon take-over either way.

Rush tower at Golden Nugget are the nicest rooms I've seen downtown.  

Nothing is really smoke-free anywhere though.

Would second this. The Cabana Suites, where I was comped earlier, are 'smoke-free', but places like that have 50 years of vice and bad decisions oozing from their walls.

I have always assumed that this was your standard work attire, regardless of season.

"Pump CAD" is some kind of euphemism, right?

(I almost went with this one instead, since it had the gloves and the hipster specs.)

it's like I'm looking in a mirror.

 

 

years ago, when the infonetz were young- a previuos office cad/IT guy found some very serious dork autocad blog that, IIRC, was called "pumping cad"... or at least used the phrase. I still get a giggle using it. especially when I have to pump some cad. like now. I'm pumping cad right now

 

eta: and now I'm having a smoke, ready for a nap.

Good lord, now I'm crying about pizza in the middle of the day.

(Usually I cry about pizza at night, and it's because I don't have any.)

That pizza/cancer story is nice but...

 

Today is “wear your favorite sports jersey day”.

I wore this one. https://borizjerseys.com/products/burt-reynolds-22-paul-crewe-mean-machine-convicts-football-jersey-the-longest-yard

i stopped to get gas on the way to work.   As I’m pumping gas this street warrior about 50 feet a way calls out to me “is that a Longest Yard jersey?”  I told him “yep”.

He says “Paul Crewe! Quarterback.  And I ain’t talking bout no Adam Sandler.  I’m talking bout Burt Reynolds.  Yessir!”

Little things like this can help restore your faith in humanity.

I've mentioned my kid's at a specialized music school for middle school. been great- he's really happy there.

he's learning music theory and music history- both new to him. mom helps him with homework. in the two essays he's had to write, he's referenced "western music", which mom can't understand isn't "country-western" music. but since I don't have time to help, I can't help. at all. like saying that "western" implies something other than slide guitar and lee jeans.

I’d just go with it.  Tell the wife your kid has to create a diorama featuring the life and times of Boxcar Willy.

So, like that scene in "Rocky" (during the opening credits) where, with no context, Rock just walks into that group of dude's acappella-bonfire-in-a-trashcan-thing like it's a totally normal thing to be going down in the 'hood, but really was likely just a way to get his goofy brother into SAG?

Regardless, hopefully you're the Frank Stallone of your thing in the breakroom.  Particularly if it means you get to rock a sweet, sweet 70's Italian dude 'fro.

Had drinks with a friend/former colleague who had the subtext of meeting for drinks in trying to recruit me to his new place of employment. They do the Apex of what I do, for apparently good money but high stress and long hours. It's tempting. My new gig is ok money, and I'm learning solid administrative skills, but a step down in design from what I'm used to and has me questioning my long term desire to do this level of work, even prior to meeting my friend.

Plus, I'm drinks.

If Amway is the 'apex' of MLM, what's the 'Flop' equivalent?  Essential oils?  Noni juice?  Magnets?  Pre-Paid Legal ServicesTM? Those catalogs where you can buy anything from personal massagers (pro tip: they're vibrators, ladies) to tins of multi-flavored popcorn?

 

Unrelated:  One of the projects at my place of business today got the rug pulled out from under it.  Second one in less than a year.  6 or 8 people sacked.  Luckily, I'm on another team, but ain't no one feeling very comfy now.  I will quietly be putting out feelers fo' sho', so any of y'all So Cal types that know anyone who needs a ruggedly handsome, somewhat jaded, tired, aging creative type that wants to find a place to tick off the days til he dies, the line forms here! (actually that all isn't exactly true.....I'm probably completely jaded)

Bad Chinese and martinis really did not mix well. :hangover:

 

Good luck with work 5ish. 

I hate being in an industry where one project disappearing means people out of work. ####### nerve-wracking.

Had the shift in coasts worked out otherwise?
