Maybe you'll learn your lesson about being a try-hard at work.

There aren't any summaries frown.gif

And I actually have to write an evaluation for each of them, which gets sent back to them.

Well after the first phase of cooking has completed (x minutes have elapsed), my microwave says "Your Meal Is Ready." That is a dangerous message my meal most certainly is not ready it needs another phase of cooking yet. I can't believe they'd make a microwave with such a message programmed in to it could cause injury.

Your microwave is trying too hard to please you. It's like the Gibonius of microwaves.

If you give your microwave tenure, can it take sabbaticals?

Once it gets tenure, it can show up to heat your food, or not, or heat it halfway, or even cool it off. There won't be much you can do to get rid of it at that point.

Sometimes it'll spin the food and heat evenly, sometimes it wont.

Kamakura didn't have any ties I liked (but I did find some nice socks) and it looks like I won't have time to make it to the strand or zabar's and the rain soaked my shoes.

Oh and my move fell through which is really bad, too.

Sadly another music legend has passed, this time on the manufacturing side: Remo Belli, the inventor of the plastic drum head. Within the past year, we've lost the founders of the biggest drum stick and drum head companies in the world.

I'm so depressed about my job search I'm starting to believe there's no point as nothings worked out for years. I woke up and didn't want to run or so anything.
