I really want to spill out some thoughts here. I get so endlessly frustrated with the way abortion is discussed in the media - by the pro-choice side. I am so tired of the phrase “exception for rape and incest.” Every time some nasty anti-choice bill comes up, we have to get upset because it doesn’t even include an…
I’m on a roll today. So then. One of the few advantages of moving to
the end of the world North Dakota was going to be having some college hockey in my life again. I’ve really missed college hockey, and while I’ll always root for my alma mater first, hey, there’s a pretty good team nearby! We should get tickets! Or…
Actually, I do think this might bother some people, but not sure how to make kinja hide the link. I think I did it? Anyway, I’m sure not discussing this on facebook.
It’s actually kind of amazing how rapidly I managed to get one after arriving here. We seriously just got here. It’s not even time to change the water in the aquarium yet.
I know this has been discussed here before, but I’m hoping to get some recommendations again.
So, if you want to test your marriage, may I suggest moving 1700 miles across the country with two cats, an aquatic turtle, and two vehicles one of which is a 16’ truck towing a car?
Please tell me it’s ridiculous to think my marriage is ZOMG FALLING APART because of about a week’s rough patch after tremendous stress? Which I will post about later because I’m on my phone because there is no internet. And will probably not be able to reply to posts because of this. I haven’t been able to.
Grumpy cat spacer.
I consider the Team America song obligatory.
So, mr. strange went home for the weekend, and the airline canceled his return flight. A lovely direct late morning flight that they then rebooked into a stupidly early flight with a stupidly timed layover. All after I said “well last time I flew on United I didn’t want to cut a bitch, so that’s the best you can ask…
First off, I do not want anything I say to be construed as a defense of Tim Hunt. He’s a giant douche who needs to stick to talking about, um, whatever his field is. Good job dude, you’re better known for your idiotic comments than whatever it is you won the Nobel Prize for.
So, I just learned that a job I’m applying to in my exciting new location in the hinterlands has contacted my current employer for a reference. But I did not list my current employer as a reference. As as far how I found out, suffice to say someone wasn’t very smart.
Although I totally stole the topic from a facebook friend. Spoiler alert for last night’s episode!
Celia, I hope this doesn’t creep you out, but I totally had a dream about you last night. You brought a lobster (yes, a pet lobster) to my clinic to treat. And a French bulldog with skin allergies. I don’t remember what was wrong with the lobster. I also cannot explain how I knew it was you but I elected to keep my…
I nabbed a photo from this article, which is also good:
Apparently my favorite employee showed up yesterday demanding a raise (which, reconstructing from buddy receptionist’s gossip, is $2/hr) or he would walk out and not even work yesterday’s shift.
The boy got that job. It’s crazy, after he had basically given up and started pursuing other skills, he finally gets something in his field. Of course, he’s taking it. And we’re going to Hawaii to celebrate now that we know one of us will have a job at least!
So my receptionist buddy and source of all the dirt also encouraged me to talk to the boss, which tipped me over that edge and I did. She seemed interested, although less horrified than I was hoping. Also, when I said “I need to talk to you about issues with A” she had this unsurprised “now what” reaction.
And hold on to your pants, that trigger warning is for an issue with an employee.
I’ve been working a lot of extra shifts to save a bunch of money for the upcoming Gigantic Life Changes. But this always happens when I do this - I get so tired and then I stare at the pile of money and say, I worked so hard I want to buy myself something nice! Which is counterproductive, but I wouldn’t be spending…
