Well, that's hardly my fault.  I was just doing what I do, doing my little dance, singing my little song, you know?  And then Hirley0 got on the dance floor and said

SHAKE THAT
First ^  Then V

And I did.  I didn't feel like I had any choice.  Between P-Funk and Hirley0, I became the man reptillian menace I am today.

Bootsy Collins did this to me.

Hoopla!

First day at the new office was OK.  Probably would have been better if I had more than 3 hours sleep and wasn't learning how to use an obtuse database that is getting discarded in 3 months.  On the plus side, apart from "following basic instructions" and "not drooling like an idiot", the day wasn't too hard.  Office is nice and cheery and modern and, unlike the poor saps on the floor below, I don't have to call random people and interrogate them about law firms all day.

I also see the country went insane in my temporary absence.

Hey, isn't Phoenix near Joe Arpaio's old stomping grounds?  I'm sure he'll be glad to know they're carrying on his legacy.

I had to do something like this for my new job. One of the online training modules for our database was "click on the News & Updates list and submit the top release as your assignment." The top story was that the database was being replaced.

Had a meteorologist that called in to support often because their station was full of old ass machines.  Station kept changing between huge news corps which kept tech contracts from doing hardware replacement.  Anyway, station manager tells him he's got to go now because "we need a set of boobs on camera." 

He learned his replacement is getting paid minimum wage.

That's horribly depressing.  Both for the woman taking over, and the guy who summed her up as "a set of boobs."

This is why you have a voice recorder on your cellphone, and run/dump it at all times at work.

He is suing for breach of contract stuff, expecting harassment suits from new people, hoping they have guts.  But yeah he said they've always been horrible people, but now they're not even using corporate speak anymore.  Said the whole team just got replaced.  All contracts are talent contracts, no journalists or meteorologists.

Ratings so far have tanked.

Bonus is some of the local businesses have sponsored his facebook and web page.  He might come out ahead.

The natural progression is to replace the weather report with reality TV.  Have a bunch of untrained people go outside, look at the sky, get rained on, etc.  The one with the best forecasts at the end of ten weeks wins $5000.  Imagine how much money the station will save!
