TFW when your critical project is stalled by a socializer that repeatedly misses their own committments.
Sounds about right
happy no traffic monday
yay President's day
Do people actually have today off?
school's out so i think folks just took it off
my bf is off today (non holiday related) and would have rather stayed home with him but maybe i'll be productive in the office --- buuuut I have 3 meetings today
don't you have to pull up your code?
The gym was empty this morning. I think a lot of people do have today off
that was horse shit -- my pm is not letting that happen
my kid's daycare isnt closed...hmm
isn't kinda one of those holidays where you don't know who's off and what's open, etc
believe it's a bank holiday tho
I know traffic was really light until the Ashford Dunwoody exit where a car was broke down in the middle of the exit lane. yay
It’s a bank holiday, but some banks still have their retail locations open. They just hold all transactions until tomorrow
I imagine post offices are closed
and damn - I took 285 to Ashford just fine this morning - it was after 9 tho
actually only took me 20 mins to get to work
usually it's 45
yeah this was around 7:40
yes, I was also wb
so I have meetings from 1-4 scheduled today
do I head home on lunch or stay til 4?
why not just head home now? then video into the meetings
all the meetings are video
well there you go
50% of my office is at a big industry conference so it's a ghost town here
my boss saw my face this morning so check there
yeah my company and team are distributed too
conference is good
Guess I'll start re-extensioning the phones at the warehouses. Only about 900 phones to redo because the previous guy didn't know what he was doing
and it's Crisco so it's a pain in the ass
these meetings kill my productivity - i've never had so many meetings before
sometimes I book a 'meeting' and a conference room just to block off some time
I was only in the office twice last week - coming in is almost pointless
@randlehandle has been awfully quiet lately... I wonder if he is knee deep in cat-6 cables, or if he voiced his displeasure with his company and they canned him and took away his computer
The look on my daughters face...
> This is fine
Glad you are unplugged for a bit, @randlehandle
:) till Saturday
Youngest got sick last night and had to take her to urgent care but she’s better today
my trip next month had some changes, going to puerto rico with some friends the week following my bday. my friend got me and the bf round trip tickets for $200 total.
going to little Cayman for Scuba diving in April
it cost considerably more than $200 :joy:
we are flying spirit, which is fine. my friend is frugal so we are like twins in that aspect
we aren't scuba'n but snorkeling yes, as well as the rainforest and driving ATVs
staying in Rincon for two days, then the rest in San Juan
renting a car too so can't wait to explore
I haven't gone scuba diving in 5 years (since I got married). It's my favorite thing to do.
I would love to do it
you could prob do a resort pass type thing in PR
I love water/I am a water sign haha
where you do a 2hr training then go diving with the dive master
it's only valid for that trip but lets you know whether you're into it
the bf isn't that big on water since he's an air sign -- he's been persuading me to parasail and sky dive
but there's no cute aminals to see up in the air
like he has zero fear of air and heights since he's done it before
so I made a deal with him that i'll parasail later this year in fl
My dad flew in the army and was funny about that stuff. “Don’t jump out of a perfectly good airplane.”
my bf served in the air force
he could be a pilot
i'm like no thanks - i'll just be a pax
discourage that if you can
just gonna put this here:
he's not actually going for it but he has no fear in that
that video ---- ugghhhh
That's not a parasailing fail...that's a kiteboarding fail
My dad was a paratrooper and is the one who talked me into “jumping out of a perfectly good airplane” (the phrasing was exact)
that's like those weird dreams where i'm free falling
except it’d be like one of those horrible realities where you’re free falling…
I have dreams where I can breathe underwater. That would be nice
dreams are weird
I had a really vivid dream once...broke an egg on a griddle and it was a double yolked egg
@taylor.fulton has joined the channel
went to work at the diner I cooked at that night...during my shift I broke an egg on the grill and it had 2 yolks
I did that about 3 days ago.
ooo! Deja-vu! You found a glitch in the matrix!
the matrix found a glitch in you
That particular shot is right before he actually gets grzed with a bulet
(ew saw it a couple weeks ago)
deja-vu is cool
I've got a skype interview scheduled for this evening, but I've caught a cold and I feel terrible
power through, or try to reschedule?
take a bunch of cold meds (with pseudoephedrine) and power through
i.e. seem flaky or be about 30% dumber during the interview?
the answer is always P O W E R
are you trending ‘better’ or trending ‘worse’? (i.e. will you be better this evening, or worse this evening?)
take even more cold meds then
the answer is always more medication
apologize and reschedule
(we’re a helpful lot, aren’t we :grin:)
I mean, floating on a cloud of sudafed is probably not the image I want to project
puffy eyes, red nose
... or is it?
i would go for Mucinex D
it has the pseudo kick, decongestant, expectorant, and cough suppressant all in one
get that D
or go to doc in a box and get a prednisone shot. that will make you feel alot better in a hurry
I kinda just want to climb back in bed and drink tea all day
I've had a lot of experience with getting sick the last year or so. Kiddo started daycare last august. Never been sick as often in my life
Stay away from dayquil. That stuff makes me forget 90% of whatever I'm doing
but I'd say to medicate and just let them know at the start of the interview
you're not supposed to drink the whole bottle as one dose.
that's a powerful endorsement of dayquil
maybe i'm just weak, but one dose turns me into a shell. maybe if I drink the whole bottle, i can astral project
if you do that during an interview, i'd be impressed
i think both the candidate and the company get one reschedule per cycle before its excessive, especially if you give as much notice as possible (ideally 2+ business hours)
I feel like this every day - getting out of bed and doing stuff we don’t want to be doing is part of the human condition…
anything with the D is extra good
but reschedule fa sho
I only have 2 more hours of work time and 1 of them is for lunch
guess i'll go home at 4
I feel terrible, both about rescheduling, and just in general
A well Stephen never would have used that second comma, for instance
Burrow down under some covers and crank up the humidifier
alternatively, get you a 40 of dayquil and get this party started
all the execs and extended leadership are gone at this conference until wednesday. There is barely anybody on the IT floor and the only people upstairs are finance
cough I think I caught something from @stephen.tyndall
NyQuil is 10% a cold remedy and 90% a recreational drug imo
yeah, slack is bringing us new vectors for the worst diseases
dextromethorphan is a mild hallucinogen
one of the active ingredients in nyquil and robo
good ol’ Trip Cs, am i right?

i would insist on being called The Mule
we used to have a problem with kids stealing robitussin
those crazy tussin-heads
going to disney for a week, any suggestions other than face mask and hand sanitizer?
tranquilizer gun and darts for the kids
your kids, not others
yeah last time i went it was like nascar with strollers
knocked a few into the rail tho
self medicate heavily
last few times ive been i learned to show up at 3pm, let the lard assess get hungry and tired and leave before we show up.
when are you going
first week in march
do your fast passes as early as you can to not get effed out of like, the star wars rides
which is usually like, months in advance
yeah we got those alreayd set up
last time I went we were waiting at the gate when they opened.
my dad had "a plan"
we did that the first day and noticed everyone started bailing around 3ish, now we go second shift and its a lot better
things have prob changed there since the mid 90s
yeah on average people weight about 100 pounds more. LOL
@treyhelmer Cut out the commentary on bodies. It's not welcome here.
10-4 my bad
Don’t shame me
@treyhelmer bring as little as possible, knock out fast passes early, get there early AF for the avatar rides and the Star Wars ride
im sure star wars will be slammed
bring extra shoes and
This is for all men, I can’t stress this enough:
These underwear will change your life especially on Disney trips
i will be bringing a stroller that gets pretty loaded up with drinks, snacks etc.
I only wear these and all my stuff thanks me for it
i was actually pretty shocked that they let me bring in a small yeti that i loaded up on the bottom rack of the stroller last time
Yeah that’s no prob
But the underwear....
That is the most important
i need to do more research on that lol
A few years ago I decided I needed a hobby. I then discovered the world of luxury underwear. I purchased underwear from all around the world and found that Australians know their shit when it comes to support and comfort and quality
Why not just wear a kilt?
ill have to think about the showing up early thing, last time i was there (2 years ago) the 3pm to closing was much more enjoyable.
2under + a kilt will blow your mind. Much better than freeballin
i usually just kill 2 birds with one stone and go with the spandex biker shorts :joy:
Everything touches everything in those
These keep everything separate
They way they should be
maybe all that React coding has gone to your underwear
I’m no coder, just a man that’s knows what’s best for my junk

Over in #jobs on what planet is it a good idea for a telecom billing platform to be run via Excel? Let that one burn, folks.

Like that guy
he applied for the job
He’s not wearing the right undies
Apparently Peter Alexander knows his underwear
I suspect that the Aussies have a good handle on swamp ass prevention. Since it's hotter than hell there.
