Ug, up too early, tired. But wife and I fly to Atlanta for Dragon*Con this morning, yay! I have this one long-term groups of Internet friends, that majority of whom I have not met. A chunk of us are going to DC to meet up.
Ok doughnut tire on the van, and it’s in the driveway. We’ll take it to the tire place in the morning, it should be covered. The really make the tire and jack a real pain in the butt to get out in newer cars.
Oh man, my wife is having a day. After taking all the kids to school, she gets going early to get a pedicure. As far as I know, that went ok. The dryer has been giving us grief, so she called the repair guy. He pulled three pencils out of the drum. I guess the kids have been washing clothes with pencils in the pockets, and they fit through the holes in the drum. She goes to pick up the kids...
mylibraryvoice: I should have known I was in for a rough day when I woke up and my inner monologue was being voiced by Christopher Walken
IBM admitted they screwed up, claimed “administrative error”. They readily agreed to settle for the amount I requested (what they owed me.) This wasn’t an official hearing, it was an initial hearing to determine if the employer was at fault. Sounds like if I wanted to be difficult about it, I could have then opted for a formal hearing, where IBM would have been fined by the...
Sitting in the waiting room of the California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement. I had to file a claim against IBM for not paying all my accrued PTO when I left (you have to under California law.) I don’t see IBM yet… Anyway, I’m about a half hour early. What’s new with you?

Oh, it gets better. So my son goes to the orientation, and he’s listening.. and it doesn’t sound right… turns out he’s in the wrong orientation! Same teacher, though. So after, he asks he what is going on. “Oh yeah.. they put the wrong time on the website.. your orientation was an hour earlier.” And this is the only in-person meeting. Um. How about.. if...
Oh man, this is not going to end well. My oldest goes to the local junior college. He has been working on general ed-type classes, with an eye towards going to a four-year college to get an art or animation degree of some kind. This semester, he has a math class, and something that is supposed to fulfill the PE requirement. With this school (heck, probably all schools now, I assume) you sign up...

girlnboots replied to your post: Oh dear. My 10YO daughter had discovered Kik on… Was she sending to strangers? Yeah, I believe so. Looked like another young girl, so probably someone she met playing an on-line game that appeals to little girls. We’ve talked with her, she didn’t know it was a problem, and has deleted the app.
Oh dear. My 10YO daughter had discovered Kik on the iPad she uses. So far, just sending pics of a Pikachu toy, but we’re going to have to talk with her about this. And her use of Kik will be banned.
No! Blond Ginger Spice is dead to me. There’s “Ginger” RIGHT IN THE NAME!
Who invented the blow job? Like, who wakes up one day and thinks “today, I will suck a dick” You know what I want to know? Who figured out Fugu? That’s the Japanese puffer fish. You have to carefully butcher the thing to avoid all of the highly poisonous parts. If you mess up, your diners are dead. How did they work that one out? How many people did they go through before they got...
