1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Currently school and waking up early for work. Also this combination eliminates my "relax/chill" time, since I'm always busy

    You should try drinking alcohol. It helps you "relax/chill" even when you don't have a lot of time.

    My fiancé has been sick twice this year already because ppl in her office decided to come in with both the flu and sinus infections. It's incredibly annoying and they're all capable of working at home so also a little baffling.

    I love working sick because then I have a private workplace all to myself when I feel better.

    My buddy's gf cannot sit in a chair like a normal person. She constantly fidgets, twists her hair, shifts around, and literally never sits in a chair, feet on the ground, ass on the chair, like a fully mature adult. She's got to have her legs tucked in under her, or over the chair leg, or whatever, usually shifting every 30 seconds to another position.

    But at one point last night, at a nice wine bar, she put her feet up on my buddy's lap, her shoes inches from the table (at or above table height) we were eating and drinking off of, even touching the edge of the table at times. Not sure if the gaudy Tori Burch medallions thereby on display were part of the point. Ugh.

    I just got my bill from my doctor. I had bloodwork, an ultrasound, and an MRI. Total cost: $7,000. What I paid: $78.00. I was bitching that my premiums doubled this year, but I can't complain, really.

    How much of your workforce currently takes advantage of the benefits you offer? Also, what are your deductibles? In 2014 there will be the new laws limiting deductibles (can't remember what they are exactly) and more requirements on the minimums your policy must cover. Then you will also need to pony up for all those not covered in some manner that work for you. My benefits guy said the companies that currently have a workforce that do not predominately take coverage are of course the ones that will get hit hardest next year. Also, stuff starts Jan 1 vs. your policy renewal date.

    It's going to be a cluster and he laughed when I mentioned "bend the cost curve down."

    You should complain about the $7k your insurance had to pay.

    That 7k was probably 40% of the billable. Insurance companies negotiate huge discounts.

    So a friend of mine came over last night and we were going to go grab some dinner. One of my roommates bumped into us as we were leaving and he was like hey what are you up to so being a nice guy and all I was like you want to come along. So he does.

    And FFS, this dude is just weird for the sake of being weird. Like it isn't funny even though he thinks it is, it makes stuff REALLY awkward between people because people don't know how to respond to some of his stuff and its like, I just don't like being around him. I'm eating dinner a few nights ago and I forget what it was, like I think he was looking at my bag of groceries just to see what was there and I was like "can I help you?"

    Also, one of my fucking coworkers isn't doing shit today and just fucking audibly yawned. THat pissed me the fuck off. Working on long term shit my ass.

    Two. This one has been here since June/July, I forget when the second one moved in. I think it was start of autumn.

    Before that I had one who was there from when I moved in until (technically) this summer.

    The other one from when I moved in moved out I forget when, late 2010. The person replaced him was in February '11. Then that replacement was a really shitty roommate who was there for six months in 2012.

    And now here we are.

    From your posting it feels like you have about 10 roommates and that they change every few months. I think you and Rambo should get a place together.

    Obvi you would know better than I would about the costs of the procedures, but it's also possible the billable was 7K and what the insurer paid was more like 3K, no? For what he had done?
