Been getting used to actually having a a full time position at my work. It's nice to actually have something resembling an actual job that has benefits, but I'm realizing it might not be what I wanna do forever. At my current level of education, I'm basically a babysitter for adults, and going back to school would require a buttoad of debt I'm not sure I wanna take on. Ideally I think I still wanna pursue my aspirations of making it as a comedian, so I think where I'm at now is a kind of "home base" for what I really wanna do. Does this makes sense to anyone else?

She has auxiliary vertebrae?

In this case, she was using a taller skeleton than she needed and popped out a couple to be more average female height. They just sort of float around the torso when not in use.

An update from the world of work.  Once again, I have been asked to work a full overnight shift, then come in to do all day training.  Once again, I have said "lolno" (other staff were stupid enough to agree, that's their problem. I know my rights.  And beyond that, I have enough self-respect that I'm not going to put myself through insomnia hell for a pointless training session).

So, today, my manager came back to me, with this proposal.   I am to come in the night before at 1845. I am to finish at 2200. I then attend the training the next day from 0900 to 1700. Then I return that night to work at 0200 until 0715.

If you're thinking that's bugfuck crazy, you're not the only one.

I also like how this manages to skirt directly within the letter of the law while pissing on the spirit of it.  I did let it slip I have a friendly law firm I'm working with now, so that may have been a motivating factor.

You'll have a better handle on the situation than me but my default response would be something along the lines of "Go fuck yourself" but maybe not stated quite so politely and with a broken bone or two by way of punctuation.

Well, these soft southerners can't handle straight talk, you have to couch everything in passive-aggressive terms before you knife them with it.

I will probably agree to it, though my co-worker will not due to other obligations she has (extra fun), but I will drive in the knife a little bit further by mentioning I recently filled in a form where I explained I was having sleeping problems, and a regular schedule is essential to a good sleep pattern.  This is not conducive to a good sleep pattern.  Or common sense.

Feeling the deprivation, I casually remark, "You know, the one thing about sleeplessness is that it takes care of my neuroticism.
Replaces it with psychopathy. Very fun. It's like my personal all-inclusive vacation." o

Yesterday, in my town, ANTIFA dressed up as local police, and redirected traffic from a major road through the parking lot of a Goodwill store.

On half-price Saturday.

Hats off, Conrads. Excellent work.
