After stringing me along as an intern and then a temp for two years, the lab where I work finally gave me a real job with benefits today. Now, I’m actually currently in the process of applying to grad school and will be quitting in five months and moving to New York if I get in, but I’ll happily take the pay bump and the optical insurance in the meantime.

Wait, Carl, is that you? You can’t just take benefits and run like that. You’re fired.

I can’t stop thinking about her. I’m losing sleep, but I can’t do anything about it because she’s out of town for awhile. I guess I’ll just be an insomniac until I can let her know how I feel.

😃

hopefully the insomnia is over too!

Not quite… now I’m just to giddy to sleep!

I’m sure the high will mellow out eventually and I’ll become my old productive self.

The Something Political Thread (Was: Random Political Thoughts)

I feel like the word “problematic” has become a tad bit overused in the past year or so. I’m not sure why, but it’s kind of annoying. Isn’t there a way to articulate the same thought a different way?

It’s a convenient dog whistle. Anytime I see something or someone described as “problematic”, I know there’s a good chance I’m about to read some PC nonsense.

I find your dismissal of statements using the word “problematic” to be problematic. 😛

How do you sort your movies?

I do too, but I do sometimes consider removing them just for space-saving reasons. It may not seem like much of a difference, but they do add up.

Do they actually though?

If your collection is large enough, yeah. I could believe squeezing an extra movie on a longish shelf after removing the slips. Especially since you often end up with a gap that’s _almost_big enough to squeeze in an extra title at the end of the shelf.
