The COO just sent out an email announcing shorter weekly one on ones for everyone, thanking me for bringing the idea to the table. I am guessing this spreads to other areas of the firm shortly. Manager tools, man.

Sounds like they're already looking for excuses as to why they lose tonight.

So I’m mostly through the “one on one” manager tools podcasts. I am doing monthly meetings with my boss currently. I broached the idea of going weekly and shorter duration today, and we are giving it a shot. I don’t have any direct reports, so this is pretty much the only way for me to try it out.

My boss seemed amused more than anything. Told me I need a hobby, if this is my after hours listening (not in a shitty way).

That's a demerit for you McGee. You'll be the first one permanently banned from the greatest thread in forum history. Hope you're proud.

How are you gonna ban me from the Krablar thread?

I know a woman who sleeps once every 2 or 3 (or more) days, who's not on drugs or anything. She's brilliant, and is a neurology grad student, and they actually studied her brain because her sleeping pattern was so unusual. After a great deal of study, it turns out that she sleeps like a dolphin or something. Parts of her brain will take micro naps, separate from the rest of her brain. Which is consistent with her symptoms, because sometimes she'll be talking to someone, and everything will go black and white for about 15 minutes. They theorize it's because the part of her brain that registers colors is taking one of those micronaps. It's fascinating. I'm incredibly jealous, I wish my brain worked like that

My opinion on Homeland season 1 is so skewed by their decision not to kill Brody and foist those shit bag seasons 2 and 3 on us, that it's hard for me to view season 1 objectively. I'm becoming more and more convinced that anthology series are the way to go, because it's so hard to have a cohesive artistic vision that lasts for more than one season. As much as I love the Sopranos, I really think it lost it's artistic vision once Livia died. it's a testament to how good the writing was, and how amazing the characters were, that I continued to love it, even as it tread water plot wise, year after year. I give Breaking Bad so much credit for having a huge, grand plot line over several years that they were able to pull off shockingly well.

4 seasons are the most overrated shit ever, I don't understand why people say they love them so much. Two of the seasons in the midwest ****ing suck, and half of spring is either cold or raining, and fall, with it's ever shortening, increasingly cold days, is a constant reminder that winter is coming.

As we learned from the "Scott Roland, world famous stuntman, with what I assume are his two lovely daughters, at what appears to be a renaissance fair" affair, I am infinitely patient in waiting for a joke to pay off.
