I'm safe at the moment - I've been here more than 6 months and I technically work for a different department. But the budget people are starting to look at the budget and when the bus comes to throw people under, the little people always go first. And I don't trust my current bosses not to give me that good ol' shove off the sidewalk.

Oregonaut - any health benefits?

The positions require a healthy employee, so the labor negotiations can include discussions about health care.

I assume a gynecologist is included in the insurance network. That will be necessary, I feel.

I was going to rant about my day, but Oregonaut's post takes the cake.

I wish she didn't act like someone who was secretly crazy. In fact, I wish she would stop thinking that it IS a secret, cause we all know you have some issues, and that's fine, but we also know you smoke (stop hiding it) and that the alcoholism was a symptom, not the root of the problems like you think it was. Stop saying it was the problem and that you're 'all better now', or I will enact my oft-daydreamed scenario of yelling at you till I'm blue in the face.

Fuck, I wish that I could just hang out with Dad instead of both of you.

I wasn't allowed to donate blood today at the school blood drive because I've been to a malaria risk area (India) within the past 12 months. I understand the reasoning and all, but that's kind of annoying.

On a related note: You have some weirdass sexual issues, too, school. Also, parents: You know, and I reminded you, that this sort of things brings up my most hated childhood memories and you still went along with the fucking school. Bastards, the lot of you.

Dear dreams: Please stop giving me wonderful, happy dreams where all my issues have long been delt with, I am in a loving, happy relationship and my ex-girlfriend and I are good friends again, despite our horrible breakup. They're really nice and all, but not worth the "lol, jk!" moment when I wake up and remember it's all not true.

Dude fuck dreams.

I had a dream where all my teeth fell out. Usually, in dreams, I don't really feel any sensations, but it was legitimately agonizing and horrifically realistic. It wasn't like friendly teeth falling out. It was like teeth bloodily, violently falling out.

What the hell. We quoted a job based on a verbal "this is what we'll probably be doing". Ok, so the test plan is different than that - not a problem, it happens. The problem is the test plan says it is based off of some other documents we use all the time. Straightforward right? Instead it reads like a drunken monkey mashed parts of the two together, while making up random bits to fill in other parts.

Well, time to take a shower. Gotta go grab the pipe wrench because the house I live in is fucking falling apart around me and nobody wants to invest in such trivialities as replacement shower knobs. Or foundation repairs, despite the fact that half of the house is sinking deeper and deeper into the ground.

After taking in your avatar (well mainly the hat), I got this strange image of you sailing a pirate ship house through waves of earth! However I suspect your non-ship house slowly sinking into the earth is neither as interesting or as fun, so comiserations. Hope you find a new place before serious damage is done!
