I’m just too jittery.
I just found out that one of the staff I supervise is getting moved to another program. First, I personally recruited, hired and trained this person, who I knew from another job. Now they want to move her from my program—which is running very smoothly, hitting all its targets, and billing out its contract—to another…
To the tune of 314K likes, that type of viral. She hath broughten honor to the House of Waffler.
I’m usually living on kind of a shoestring so I haven’t had much of a budget for travel in recent years. But in October I’m getting a free (well, free for me) trip to Seattle and in December I’m going to Malaga, Spain for a week for the cost of a plane ticket. I’ve never been to Seattle or Spain. I’m SO EXCITED to get…
I absolutely hate speaking in front of people. I had to do a presentation for a crowd of about 40 I mostly didn’t know. There was a technology fail and the PowerPoint I prepared couldn’t be shown and the whole thing had to be talked through. But I made it! Props to me! I’m celebrating with chicken wings as one does.
This is grungy unwashed sex towel Reynolds, am I right? Why is she still bothering?
I’ve been seeing a lot of movies recently and a few have really blown me away. Eighth Grade and Three Identical Strangers (an amazing documentary) topped out my list.
Last night on twitter someone posted a link to this wedding website. It has a whole forum dedicated to those who are “Waiting” to be proposed to.
Did you all know this and I just missed it?
UPDATE: my work friend just told me to “simmer down” about it and that I’m overreacting. But these stories are def helping!
I read this article yesterday and loved it. Nothing better than scamming hapless old billionaire white guys.
UPDATE: Clashtalk is fully indifferent to news of PowerPoints. Duly noted :P
I cannot cannot cannot believe the idea that people on the left need to be more civil seems to be gaining traction. This is beyond absurd. I’ve just about had it with all this bullshit. I was never big on civility as a thing in the first place but this is not the time or the place. Fuck David Axelrod and Cory Booker…
First, I’m upset with The Root readers. I see y’all. I love your petty. I live for it. I’m in the comments reading all of the things you have to say. I see your memes. I love your enthusiasm and greatly appreciate y’all.
This is me sticking my head in the sand for five minutes because the news is so uniformly horrifying. I’m starting to feel guilty that I haven’t yet deserted my job to riot in the streets. I mean I’ve been to some protests but I feel like we’re past that now. What is everyone else doing to avoid completely losing it?
I want to make the traditional kind with red wine. I already googled and found a billion variations so I would love to know if anyone has one they’ve vetted and found good.
I wanted to tell hokes not to look!
There’ve been a few posts by people at The Root talking about their personal experience with mental illness. They’re very good, but what I really took away from it was that the staff are doing these posts because they genuinely care about their readers, in particular those that might be suffering in silence from some…
I swear I read his “insert yourself” comment earlier and had the exact same thought. Bravo that someone actually expended the energy to say it.
