This is going to be SPECTACULAR.

I would like to state the conclusion of the above post is a core reason why I love PD.

This is wrapping up mighty tidily.  Not that parts don't resonate, but I caught as light whiff of deus ex machina in Draco's conclusion.

Lillie just gave me my midterm review.

Or let's just say she attempted to give it to me.  I objected to everything - good and bad - as being procedurally incorrect, not within the grading period, etc.  A solid hour with nothing accomplished (with the exception of making sure her blood pressure is high enough).

She has also told me that I am responsible for the jet mill issue.  I refused, stating that I was not being allowed to troubleshoot properly, as unqualified people ("ie, you") have been interfering with the work.

So my review is unsigned.  The drop-dead date for the review is Monday morning at 12:01 AM, after which HR starts asking hard questions.

Actually, broccoli rabe is/was commonly also known as broccoli rape. 


 Also, someone on my FB feed wrote this:

Meanwhile, at Unseen University in Ankh-Morpork, Commander Vimes rushed into the library with a grumble in response to a hasty summons.

"What's all this, then?" he growled to the assembled wizards (plus one orangutan).

Rincewind spoke for the group. "That's what we were hoping you could explain. It just...appeared here, out of nowhere."

Vimes raised an eyebrow. "Appeared? Isn't that your line of work?"

The Chancellor waved a hand. "See for yourself." With that, the crowd of portly men parted to reveal a small table, at the center of which sat a large-brimmed, black hat.

"What does it mean?" the Professor of Recent Runes asked.

Vimes had a look of infinite sadness as he walked slowly forward and gently picked up the hat with both hands. "It means", he said finally, "we're on our own."

I believe that's the magical land of IDONTGIVEAFUCKISTAN.

This is kinda cool.

That's one hell of a production budget.  Who the hell are these people?
