Finally got 90% of the hurricane shutters down. Was justifying leaving them up because it looked like we might get more there for a bit, but then I just procrastinated. Just have one window left that I'll need a ladder to get. Think the job qualified as a decent workout.

The math tutoring center was decently involved this week. I got in a bit of trouble for not getting my availability in again in a timely manner. The issue is that that the owner used to have us get them in by Saturday. The new center director wants them in by Tuesday in order to put out the next week's schedule on Thursday (which then has to be intialed by Friday). Anyway, the first time around I got mine updated on a Thursday...did two weeks...then forgot about it until another Thursday. The director said she'd told me multiple times in e-mail. The problem is that 95% of e-mails that I get are garbage, and I generally only check it once per week or when I'm specifically expecting something. That's been the case for years...so I guess I have to break that habit.

Looking forward to some pokering the next few days.

Thatís why people have separate work emails that they only give out for work things and they check it every day. 9 2 5 what a way to make a living.

As VB used to say, Nebraska football fans keep trying to stay competitive—trying the same thing over and over—which is the very, exact, definition of insanity. Sad!

You probably assumed my vigilance on this issue had waned.

Never.

Elaborate?

Casino wise, getting in gambling mode, drinking. The green chips still feel like 25, even though they're worth over a hundred.

If I do get cancer first thing I'm doing is coming here and laying the guilt on BigD. I won't die until I know he feels bad.

Congrats on living forever

I won't say I NEVER have eaten at Chipotle, but I've never been happy about my choice, when I have.

More generally, I believe in the technology but don't think we have figured out the best way to implement it just yet.

#3759857 The Trump Presidency Thread

Really enjoying watching you guys show your ass here.

It's been so obvious that the Trump campaign was affiliated with the Russians, what with all of the hilarious lying and denials and coverups and firings...and now that there's actual hard evidence of Donny Boy actively and eagerly seeking damaging info against Clinton from a Russian government source and including Jared and Manafort, you guys are like, "Nope. That's normal. Nothing to see here." It's fun. For me.

And to think, all of your embarrassment could have been avoided if you simply hadn't supported one of the worst people in the country for president, an actual insane person famous for being a monumental dickhead...you know, the kind of guy that we all learn at an early age shouldn't be given power.

yeah but she practically said she was a stark and then showed her very describable face and no one ever saw her dead and what with how supposedly dead people constantly popping up always happens in this world...

in a show about a world with unpredictable seasons that can last decades, actual fire breathing dragons, armies of the undead, magic ice walls, and necklaces that make old hags look hot af, you're having a hard time believing that illiterate serving wenches who probably haven't seen much beyond the castle walls aren't able to immediately identify a girl they've never met after watching every person who literally held the lives of said girls in their hands get murdered. really?

I really thought single mother would be a place where I could outkick my coverage looks wise. I figured a nice single Mom would want someone steady, someone safe, someone who makes good money to help take care of little Timmy. But apparently I was wrong because I never match with any of them. Bottles the mind, as they say.
