I hope HR grind him into a fine paste. That's repulsive.

He's doomed, especially given that I called him on it and he kept laughing.

Good. The doomed part, that is.

OK, in fairness, the worst thing about anything is the followers of said thing.

If that's their shtick and they're on the internet.

Twid,
Member of Atheists vs Christians, not an atheist nor a Christian, kinda finds himself hating both atheists and Christians despite his IRL interactions with atheists and Christians.

has anyone else tried the missions? I'm getting a little bored with visiting the same portals around my house so i was thinking they might shake it up a bit.

I've actually been pretty tempted by that. I live within (reasonable) walking distance of the Battle of Bunker Hill.

That's one of the damnedest things. Boston is an incredibly historic city, as far as American history goes, and the rest of Eastern Massachusetts is equally historic. About a month ago I looked at the tombstone of a man who was born before the English colonized North America. I don't normally do shit like that. I've never boarded the USS Constitution and it's RIGHT FUCKING THERE. When I look at the missions on Ingress, I feel ashamed.

What's funnier, that I didn't make this up or that this is the most memorable campaign slogan of the entire campaign.

In other news, I may just have to adapt this for work.

"My arse is shaved and my mind is right - Twat that wall."

I'm not even sure. I think that that it was the man's response to the question "what is your name?" The whole thing is hilarious. I can only imagine what his grandchildren's reactions were when they saw it.

Now that it's nice out and I realized I still had this game, I started playing it again. I'm just shy of level 6.

So last night, my aunt prematurely announced her youngest son's death with bad phrasing (he's very much alive, and this is good news)

She sent a text to someone saying "Pat passed, and I'm crying"

Pat passed all of his classes and is graduating from college in two weeks. She's very proud, and doesn't understand what she did wrong there. I find this kinda funny.

I'm also attempting to lose weight. I've been somewhat successful in that regard. I've lost about 10 lbs.

Hey guys.

I quite honestly don't know what is keeping me from here. Probably just something I just need to sort out in my head. Just checking in, letting you all know that Twid is ok.

Actually, I have a bit of good news.

Dr. S, the man who fired me many years ago but I still work on the same floor with, recommended me for extra responsibility. I accepted. I had a meeting with a PI today, and we did the preliminary sussing it out.

I was pleased. Dr. S and the PI I spoke to are close friends. I don't know what happened there but I'll take it.

Nice to see you, Twid!

You too!

I fell in somewhat of... not a rut, not a lull, maybe an aimless? I've figured that I've slacked off long enough being useless and not doing anything of note, so since getting all of the necessary permissions at work for new task this week, I was like, fuck it do more shit in the spare time too. So I've been trying to do something productive everyday. Today I sort of slacked on that, since I just got a new library card and ordered a book (Demon Haunted World). Otherwise I've been brushing up on math and trying to be proactive in fighting the perpetual rolling the stone up the hill that is organizing my room/desk at work (also, my gigging amp is under my desk at work....)

How was the trip?

It's not much, but I am resuming a responsibility that I had under Dr. S. And it's being extended towards the whole floor.

I guess I wasn't a totally shite administrative assistant after all.

... and aside from the fact that she and I are still friends and the ambiguity of my invite (matter of number and invites, plus groom's comfort)....

She asked me for input on the musical selection. I made some facetious as well as some serious input, but at the end of the day, I realized that a lot of the music I listen to, is, well, ambiguously appropriate at best.

This left me with the odd realization, "what the hell are we going to listen to at my own wedding, when it eventually happens?"

Irish music is like country music in this regard. Starts off good but, goddamn.

Heavy metal?

lol, you gotta work with Motorhead at best.

I guess this is coming up because all of the hurdles that were in place between Villager and I getting married are now gone, excepting me finishing college, since I'll probably propose to her not long after I get my bachelor's. We've even figured out the where to live. Massachusetts, just not Boston.

90's Club/Pop, or 2010's Club/Pop. Euro version though.

lol, Europop

Our processional/recessional was a live dixieland band.

Our reception was iPod: rat pack-ish stuff, and some bossa nova.

"Our" wedding song was Tom Waits' "Nobody", as in "Nobody will ever love you... The way that I love you... 'Cuz nobody's that strong..."

The father/daughter song WAS NOT PICKED BY EITHER MYSELF OR MY WIFE.  It was that horrible and creepy "I Loved Her First."  If you haven't heard it, do yourself a favor and do not google.

The dancing was a mixture of our favorites, and guest input by way of their RSVP cards having a space to request a song.  Huge mixture of styles, with at least one song at least one person would want to dance to.

Song request RSVP. Hmm. Also, of course I'm tempted to google now, because you told me I shouldn't.

Can't be worse than "Daddy's Hands".

Our wedding song was Gerry Rafferty's Right Down the Line.  We had people from 4-90 at the wedding, so we had the DJ put in a suitable mix.  Everything from "The Time Warp" to Glenn Miller tunes.

Daddy's Hands? That sounds really cringey.

Yea that was the Father/Daughter song at the last wedding we went to. Pretty sure the last few. Creepy is right.

I figure I'll just put Pork Soda on loop, and everyone will be happy, right? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHZ9tGJz_gQ

On a slightly more serious note, no immediate wedding plans so haven't put any real thought into it. We've talked about it....if and when it happens, neither of us inclined to do anything very traditional (I suppose I could play this instead?  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYQ03rzuK3o) but will likely incorporate Primus, with other music too, so as not to chase away all potential guests.

And congratulations and good luck on your ongoing and impending life changes, Twid!

Thanks, Trippin!

Mostly because I don't know how to introduce her to grandpa. That's not a small thing. Not the fact that I want to introduce her to him, but that it's him.

Like, this year.
