I have some nutbag on OKC asking me for advice on starting The Revolution and immediately ignoring it. It's hilariously predictable.

 :lulz:  Oh, OKC.  There is so much lail in your userbase.

I haven't logged in for so long. I should check to see whether my inbox is full of messages from clueless old men and 20-year-old thirsties looking for a cougar, like it usually is.

You get all the best (read: gross/hilarious) messages, those that you posted in that thread, anyway.

I logged in last night to see if I had any fuckery after a two month hiatus, and only found a message from a guy who was down to be just friends and another that I messaged way back.  It was nice not finding anything gross in there.

I feel like shouting "I AM A GOD" at passing traffic because I fixed my computer from being stuck in Safe Mode with Command Prompt.

I was curious about the location so I looked it up. As you said, it looks very walkable according to Google Maps, street view shows a clear sidewalk under the freeway, and the walk is only 4 minutes. As shitty as Tucson is for pedestrians, they clearly deliberately made an easy path between the hotel and the convention center, which actually makes sense for a change.

Like weather-wise or walking paths?  There are definitely some streets that are a pain to walk on because of the lack of sidewalks, but there's usually at least a wide strip of dirt to walk on on one side of a busy street. 

But this heat will murder the fuck out of people if they're not careful.

Walking paths. Gotta bear in mind that I'm from a city that was built for pedestrians and there are few places you can't get to safely on foot, so my perspective is a bit skewed.

Oh.  :lol:  Yes, I see what you mean now.

OK then.  I applied for a research position ages ago, and forgot all about it.

Thing is...it's a research position on pensions and public policy.  And I know nothing about pensions.  I just applied in the frenzy of sending out applications.  Only now they want to interview me.

Guess what I'll be brushing up on this weekend?

Good luck!

(I do stand corrected.  Cushing is a pedestrian underpass, and Sunset is the deathtrap.)

Mistakes happen, man.

It's my birthday.

In celebration of 34 years and not dead yet, I am making my husband take me downtown where I can go to a bar where Top Gun was filmed. No, I'm not fucking joking.

Happy birthday, Suu!

Thanks!

By the way, Tucson Comic Con offered me a hotel room. It looks shady as fuck, and I can't wait.  :lulz: I'm copping out of Long Beach, because they want me to buy a $400 insurance policy a month out from the con, and I'm calling shenanigans.  I'll eat the $300 table fee, because no fucking con is worth a $700 investment when I know I'm not making the return. Even San Diego doesn't charge that much. Fuck, neither does New York. I'm totally cool with insurance, but that seems a wee fucking ridiculous.

You'll see us at the Tucson one.  What hotel?  If it's one of the bad ones, you can bunk with us.

Arizona Riverpark Inn. It's like it wants to be a resort, but isn't. But the reviews don't suck.

It's on the wrong side of the highway and there is no pedestrian traffic allowed on Cushing Street (ie, you will need a vehicle).

...there's sidewalks on both sides of the street and it's not a busy street?  Plus every con at TCC sees that road gets inundated with pedestrian traffic?

I did the thing yesterday. Twice. I presented my research for the Ronald McNair program, and then I presented it again to fulfill my Honors thesis requirements, and now I am finally actually officially done with my degrees so that they can be recorded so Ford can talk to PSU about my financial aid this Fall. My position is guaranteed, but I would rather the Foundation pay for it than have it come out of my lab's grant. I am also in the pool for a TAship, which would be even better, although I might have to teach a class I haven't taken, which will suck. ERRRRBODY I know seems to have gotten stuck with A&P whether they took it or not, and I don't want to teach that. Which most likely means that I will be.  :|



That's fucking awesome! Except for the teaching a class you haven't taken.

I know them feels.  Fuck those AMs.

This morning we have a child prostitution ring near the village being broken up, flooding in a village hotel, media being robbed INSIDE their rooms in media village, GB's swim team having all their kits stolen & now being without olympic swimwear. All just a few hours before the opening ceremony.

Oh, and everyone is also prohibited from making gif's of the olympics  :lulz:

Apropos of nothing, tomorrow begins the Annual Prairie Shark Safari.


Yippie-Kai-Ai, motherfuckers.

Whooo!!

You guys have to come to weddings in Ohio.

The groom literally flipped the bride off and said she was a whore because, and get this, SHE HUGGED AND KISSED HER COUSIN AFTER THE CEREMONY (of course, not in a weird way at all, as the cousin was congratulating the bride).

I couldn't make this shit up if I tried. More details will come in the Ohio thread.

Ohio, man. My dad's from there, I have relatives from there. Relatives I prefer not to deal with pretty much ever. Last time I had them over there was a father-daughter fistfight in my back yard.

O_O  Jesus to both of these.
