did you have a webinar up in the background as you poasted this?
Whoof. I'm not ready for that kind of pressure! Good luck.
BTW my technique for forcing myself to pay attention to webinars is to stand up. Keeps me away from the keyboard, and somehow it has a focusing effect on my mind.
Who am I kidding, I never pay attention to them.
no prob. your shoes always look well cared of. so maybe there lives a shoe polish fairy in your house.
i just step carefully. or maybe aportnoy drops by to take care of it.
thankfully, i have never attended a webinar
that i had to pay attention to.
So, this was neither happy nor upsetting on its own merit but I did find it mildly surreal - and from that I took enjoyment.
We visited the agency to review a file that ran probably 1500 pages. No big surprises, just confirmation of a few things we learned in the course of conversations over the past year or so. But, funny enough, it repeated itself four times so we really only ended up reading 350 pages, total. Even among those 350 pages there was a ton of repetition.
But the last moment of hilarity came when I had to use the mens' room. Your average CPS office is staffed about 98, 99% women. So the ladies' room was, like, front-and-center. The mens' room took four turns, each requiring a sign with an arrow, until you get to this broom closet. And the urinal at the end (the only normal-height one) was about 20" wide. I'm a somewhat narrow build, and I was banging my elbows as I did my business. I did get a few pictures, may poast later.
Not this time. I usually use webinars and conference calls to do self-manicures. I've found that browsing SF doesn't always work out too well, particularly if I stumble on a post that makes me laugh out loud.
The look on my daughter's face when she realizes I'm making her mac&cheese for dinner.
I'm going to be an uncle.
Hope you got her Sponge Bob mac and cheese. That's my favourite.
I run a steel plant (kinda, if I'm not on sf) and we draw low carbon steel bars for the domestic market here. thing with having a steel plant and all these scrap and whatnots lying around, if you need parts or maybe a weapon, you could just pick something up from the floor(or have someone do it for you) and grab a torch/welding machine/angle grinder/drill or bring it to the lathe machine/power press/etc... and just fabricate one.
will the cum laudee be taking a break here? I'll pick her up at the airport.
thats serious $$$. congratulations.
I'm leaving work early today. first concrete pouring for the acidfam casa plus wifey hosting a product launch for the italian paper products she's bringing in.

Just good ol' fashioned Kraft. Nothing better
you should return the favor to your sibling sooner than later. common etiquette.
