Fuck layoffs; I’m now attending meetings that are (even if the higher-ups won’t admit it yet) about absorbing the six sites I manage into the top-level corporate site, so kiss a good customer experience goodbye. Ugh. I just hope for a decent severance package at the end of it. Also fuck hurricanes and non-mask wearers. Read more

I have a couple of these. Some dumbass in Oklahoma cannot remember her own freaking email address. I was an early Gmail adopter, so got firstname.lastname @ gmail dot com (which, because of their standards, also works with just firstnamelastname, no dot in between) and am CONSTANTLY getting stuff for this person.

My fortnightly anxiety and panic extravaganza which is the grocery store yielded one small prize today: SoCo minis for $1. I don't drink that much, but huzzah!

I downloaded that set, but haven’t read any yet! I expect good things, their baseline quality level is high.

Oh no! I sure hope this Dropbox link (for .mobi file) doesn’t accidentally expire after you click it and then tell me you’ve clicked it. That would be terrible.

Oh, I’m so glad you told me, thanks — will hold off on the story until after at least the first book! Yeah, I’m getting 11" inseam. And I was just antsy to place an order because I am so missing any kind of outdoorsy vacationy experience, even if it’s just going to be one afternoon less than two hours away!

Yes, I took a Navajo-guided tour at Monument Valley (100% recommend, was fantastic, a pic from that is below — I’m having fun reminiscing about that trip today!) — and our guide used “Dine” to refer to himself and others. But as long as they decide for themselves, whatever it is, I can learn it!
