      Adventures with border officers

      2 days ago

      I've had mostly good luck with the officers I encounter during border crossings. Very rarely pulled in, but they are a grab bag of personalities. Some have none, some are abrupt, some are interrogators, some are chatty, some are short but sweet, and still others are obstinate asses.

      Apparently no one knows what a convention is or how you would meet people there. My living arrangement is lackluster, my job is feh, and owning my own vehicle is questioned.


      The only thing he seemed to believe was that I didn't have any alcohol, Tabbaco or any other such nonsense.


      Next time I'll just tell an approximation of the truth and safe myself the hassle.

      Pre-RTX Austin Visit

      1 month ago

      So Austin, and my awesome Austinites.. it turns out that I will be back in your fair city around February 12-14th for a little visit. I've already got some plans locked in, but I would love to hang out with as many folks as possible on at least one of the days I am in town.


      Is anyone around/do you want to hang out with me for a spell? I think the Deadpool movie is out that weekend so I'd like to see it at some point, and go to a couple of my favorite restaurants.. but other than that and Sunday Morning/Afternoon I have some flexibility.


      Miss your faces.

      One Sensible Thing..

      1 month ago

      I'm participating in Cards Against Humanity's Christmas event this year, or rather it's "Eight Sensible Gifts for Hanukkah" event and Day Seven presented us with a unique opportunity.

      Included with a pack of new CAH Cards was an insert with a picture of a Picasso original print on one side and an invitation to participate in a social experiment on the other.
      You've likely all heard of this already, but just in case you haven't - CAH says they are giving us two options; 1 - Vote to cut the Picasso into 150k pieces so each person would personally own 1.5mm of it or 2 - Vote to preserve the Tete de Faune and instead donate it to the Art Institute of Chicago. Voting ends tomorrow, and we each got a unique code to vote with, so I guess we will discover it's fate soon.. but I really had to think about it.

      How many people can say they own an original Picasso? It's an amazing opportunity to own a little piece of history. However, it is exceptionally little, you would hardly be able to see anything of it.
      And then there is the idea that it would be irreparably destroyed. Gone forever so that 150,000 people can own a grain of sand made by Picasso. However, people have advised that it is potentially one of a numbered set of 50 prints Picasso made of this piece, so it's not like there aren't 49 others out there in the world for people to enjoy...


      So what to do?


      In the end, I voted to preserve and donate. I like the idea that I could go to the Art Institute and see it there on the wall and know that I helped put it there, and now so many other people have the opportunity to enjoy it.
      If the pieces were larger, say an inch squared, I might have chosen differently because that I can plainly see and frame and keep forever.. but to be so small, it would be impossible to prove what it was and cannot really be viewed and enjoyed in any way.

      Hopefully enough of the other "Chosen people" as CAH has taken to addressing it's 150,000 subscribers, will vote the same way - but if not, I guess we will become members of the world's most impossible puzzle pieces club.

      I decided to upgrade to Windows 10 and didn't really think much of it, until I load it all up today - and all my Chrome bookmarks are gone. A couple of years worth of bookmarks for my finances, hobbies, and quick reference guides.. gone.

      There is no way I can remember what they all were even if I wanted to because some were just used occasionally.

      damn, damn, damn.

      Update: Despite the upgrade saying all my files would be there, all of my pictures and documents are gone. what the FUCK, WIndows? WHAT DID YOU DO?

      Week One

      3 months ago

      Running is from the devil. When you have never been a runner in even the tiniest of imaginings, or an active athlete of any kind; starting to run is hard.

      I have no stamina for this shit apparently.. I tried to walk/jog/run just over 3k today and got just over 1K in and had to stop. This is discouraging, but I know it's just the beginning and I can't fully give up yet. Trying to hang in there to keep going for the Buff Buddies program and for the folks I'm working out with.

      I've discovered that the inside of my left thigh tightens up as do my calves and my stomach just has no patience for the cadence. Day one of learning to run... results are mixed.

      Day three of having no caffeine was difficult at first, I had a migraine until about 5pm today, but I've reached my 3L of water a day goal, plus a little extra, so that part is good. No bad snacks while at work either.
      Baby steps. Hopefully they will help me get to bounding leaps and finally to success.

      Buff Buddies

      3 months ago

      I'm really glad that RT decided to do this little show. It's inspiring to see others making commitments to change, although some look pretty great already it's hard to believe they want to lose weight, but it's not just about how you look but how you feel and being thin and being fit are two different things.

      I am really bad at sticking to a program because food is a coping mechanism for me, but I want to really put in the effort with this program.

      So.. some goals.

      Ultimately I'd like to drop two dress sizes.. from an 8 to at least a 6 if not a 4. This may mean losing 10-20lbs or simply losing inches and turning useless fat into lean muscle mass.
      I want to be able to run for more than a few minutes.
      I'd like to increase my flexibility.

      To do this I want to cut way back on my soda intake and dramatically increase my water consumption to nearly 3L a day, which means 1 25 oz bottle before I leave for work, 2 while I am at work, and 1 before bed.
      Food portions need to become smaller, stop eating the bad snacks at work and replace them with snap pea crisps and apples.
      I'm going to do a lot of body weight exercises and plyometrics along with some helpful workout videos.
      I am debating enlisting the help of my old trainer, but none of that help comes cheap, not even a little.
      I also reached out to someone I trust to be my actual Buff Buddy and help keep each other accountable and motivated to keep moving through the program, and, of course, I will be tuning in to the show to see how they are doing and get tips.


      Hope everyone does well if they choose to participate and even if they are doing their own thing.
      Fit4RTX 2016 anyone?

      Your Wall = Comments Section?

      4 months ago

      Recently I have been getting updates saying "1 New Comment has been added to your Wall" or 2 sometimes.. but whenever I click on that alert, it takes me to a friend's journal. Is that how the function is mean to work? or is the Wall my comments section and it is malfunctioning?

      Anyone have thoughts on this one?

      Wish me Luck

      4 months ago

      I just applied for the job I am currently working at.

      Seem strange?

      Let me explain:
      When I started work here over five years ago it, they had drawn my name from a pool of candidates that had all applied for this job. We had a three month contract to start, and were advised that this was the assessment period, and after that if there was a viable workload they would see. There were about twenty of us and we all made it past that marker and they extended the contract for six months.
      The deal with my workplace was if you were on contract for three years you would automatically become permanent, so as long as our contract kept getting extended, we kept accumulating time, and would eventually have a permanent job.
      A year and a half in, the government put out a hiring freeze. No more time accumulation.

      However, our pool was still active so they kept extending our contracts. A few firings and a couple hirings of people later, we are over five years into our time there and they still have not lifted the freeze. To top that off, our pool expired about a year ago, so even if they wanted to make us permanent they can't, because you have to be in an active pool to be hired for real. So we've all been waiting and wondering when they might start another pool.
      It turns out that day is today.

      You'd think the people currently working the job they are trying to get a pool/hire for would automatically get rolled into the new pool, but no. We have to reapply with the general public and the ad is only up for 24 hours.
      This means that the job I am trained to do and have been working at for five years could be lost to someone brand new all because someone knows how to write essay answers and bullshit better than I can online.

      If I don't make this pool and have to work out the year and a half left on my current contract while a bunch of rookies come in off of it, I may just start screaming, or kicking. Maybe some scream/kick combo.

      Anyway, please wish me luck. The job doesn't pay much, but in this town I am lucky to have any work at all and the environment is pretty nice all things considered.

      I hope that you are enjoying your Valentine's Day. I really enjoyed the times we have had this past year with our interactions on the Guardian Podcast and Twitter. You are easily one of my favorite people talk to whenever we get the chance. Can't wait to see you again this year at RTX and possibly TO: Uncon, if my schedule will allow it.

        On the left hand side of your profile page under the Signed Up etc section, you should see "Stats" and "Mod History", click on the history and it will show you all the positive mod points you've received. :)
