Cool, that should cut down on the false alarms then.

Also, maybe someone should look into the effects of opening the microwave while it is working?

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.
Don't see it as a failure to live up to some arbitrary standard, see it as an opportunity to see many interesting things for the first time!

Good point

My coworker today was trying to think of a black dude's name and said "Who was that baboon there?"

My supervisor likes to refer to "big black Congo cock."

His supervisor described the cancer stricken woman who handles sick time as having behavior, "all fucking ghetto."

His supervisor described said woman as a "typical nigger."

HR doesn't know, because their alternatives are worse. This is Southcoast Massachusetts. This is corrections. I am filled with hate and deeply ashamed to be here.


...How the fuck are we even in the same state? You're like a 40 minute drive from here.

Seconded. I think we need to murder all the townies.

I didn't think it was prevalent in my area either, until I took a job with an old school law enforcement and working class mentality. Don't worry, I'm sure Boston has more than its share.

That's why the foolish "cops aren't racist" argument boggles my mind so much. If you get a bunch of racist people working in a field with a culture of racism, what else is going to happen from it?

Ah, the law enforcement angle makes sense. And the BPD definitely has that. I seem to remember there being quite a to do about the shit that was in their union news letter.

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.

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?

59
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.
