Thursday's Thoughts

  • Where I used to work a person with another agency tried to bully me into doing something I had neither the time or inclination to do at that moment. It was something that could and should have waited. Interestingly, she tried to name drop someone in my department and hinted it would be OK with him for me do what she wanted, while also hinting she knew him better than I knew she did- especially odd, since she mispronounced his name. Funny, I was his direct supervisor and we were very good friends.

  • Regardless, don't people understand- Jedi mind tricks don't work on Jedi?

  • Nursing pro tip- know when to make something another person's problem.

  • I would hate if I ever developed any of the problems making Nyquil contraindicated for my use.

  • Although I know Whitney is a bad show, I like it for some reason and can't explain exactly why.

  • The theories for why early man did some of his best cave paintings in nearly inaccessible reaches of their caves always revolve around them being used for a rite of passage- they'd take children reaching adulthood back to show them and give them some awe or the thinking will involve protecting the paintings mystical properties and powers ( I call this the Holy Of Holies Theory). Both of these thoughts are so unsatisfactory they're plain odd. Why did they do it then Mr. Smarty McSmarterton you ask? That's easy, they wanted to protect their work because they wanted people to know they had been here and made a difference- just like us.

  • Bon Iver Holocene

Observing the failed Jedi Mind Trick in motion is big fun. ;-)

Oh, the naive new supervisors I had to endure over the last few years that had no idea how the company operated.

They came in bright eyed and bushy tailed only to fade like a fat 3 year old in a stakes race.
