Reminder: The Red Cross still needs donations and you still want me to watch TWO terrible things!

Well, I’m already going to watch a terrible thing for you but there’s 48 hours left to make that into two terrible things. $209.40 have been donated to the Red Cross since I threw down this gauntlet on November 5th. That means I’m going to liveblog a terrible Ray Comfort anti-abortion DVD that got left on ...

Not a generic get out the vote post

There’s something that I’ve said for a long, long time. Pretty much since I made the discovery that you could argue with people on the internet: If you have to lie to win an argument, you know in your heart that you’ve already lost, and that you think victory is more important than having a ...

Moving to Houston

I’ve accepted a job offer in Houston, after a lot of discussion and back and forth with Mike about the pros and cons and oh shit he has to find a job too. While I’m really not feeling good about having to move, I’m super excited about the job itself. It’s with a company I’ve ...

HELLO I HAVE PRESENTS FOR YOU

Because the world needs more Joe Biden gifs. You’re welcome. MOAR  

Suicide is cheaper 4

A lot of you may not know this, but I used to be an EMT-B. I volunteered on a 911 ambulance service, and spent most of my time running out of fire stations in Commerce City. Commerce City (aka Combat Shitty) is an industrial area of Denver where there are a lot of poor and ...

Just asking questions.

I would just like to note that this “just asking questions” crapwave about the unemployement numbers is driving me absolutely batty. Jack Welch (former CEO of GE) is the poster child for this one: When Matthews asked him if he had any evidence to prove his assertion correct, Welch admitted that he did not.“I have ...

Second interview

I got a call for a second interview! And it’s with one of the companies that I’m super excited about. (Hi, I’m not being ambiguous or anything, no sir, not me.) I’ll be flying out to Houston on Tuesday next week for the interview. I feel all sorts of grown up and business-y now. Please ...

The show must go on.

I went to my first concert in just… ages last night – Nightwish at the Ogden. You know, I can’t actually remember the last time I went to a concert. I think it might have been Flogging Molly, years and years ago, when Within a Mile of Home first came out. Well, that’s another thing to ...

State of the job hunt

So yes, I was in Laramie for two days for a huge petroleum industry job fair type thing. I did nine interviews total, and used up all of my social interaction time for the next two weeks or so. I think I’m just going to hide in the basement and scream every time someone turns ...

I’m exhausted, still have interview brain, and just drove home from Laramie. Have a picture of my cat helping with paperwork.
