After years and years, the ole corporation I work for FINALLY blocked the poker website that I’ve been lurking on as a distraction to all the annoying crap I’m supposed to be doing here instead. We’ll see if they somehow decide to unblock it, like they did with Daily Kos a while back. Probably not, since it really is against corporate policy to browse gambling websites. Even though poker is more of a game of skill than a game of chance. Somehow I don’t see the CEO wanting to argue that with me.

In other news, PSB and I will be moving again, likely within a month, and likely somewhere in our current neighborhood. We love our place but we need something with actual bedrooms once the Polenbaby gets here, as opposed to our railroad apartment now. PSB just saw a place earlier today that she really likes, and I’m going to check it out in a few hours. We’re maybe going to try to move mid-month, which is a little crazy because I’m going to be in Vegas in a week, and The Moth has its gala on November 17th (usually PSB is a lot more slammed, but this year a lot of the work has already been taken care of, which has made it a lot less stressful for her). So in a few weeks I may be putting up posts begging for help packing all of our stuff up. And I know, dear readers, all eight of you, that you will come over and help me pack, right? RIGHT?

Awesome birdies on Boing Boing today!!!

Eagles that hunt baby reindeer!


Underwater pics of kingfishers!

Hamilton now says “birdie birdie birdie” - he learned it from me singing “the birdie song” to him and making him dance. He will usually dance when we sing to him. I got him to dance to a tango the other day, which PSB thought was cute. I’ll have to get a video up.

UPDATE: One more. This one might be a little upsetting. . .

Hooray Tamara and Zora!!!

PSB and I have been to many a Sunday Night Dinner, as has Twin A.

Their book is awesome - you should buy it right now!

UPDATE: The ladies have a lovely website up as well!

Office (2007) annoyance

Filed under: Kvetch! Kvetch! Kvetch! — Twin C @ 5:16 pm

I have a colleague who likes to put meetings on his Outlook calendar, but leave them blank, so that it’s blocked, but I, as his admin, have no idea why. This would ordinarily be fine (I mean, really, why would your admin need to know what you’re doing/who you’re meeting with/where you will be, that’s just crazy, right?), but every once in a while, he does this for an all day appointment, and Outlook 2007’s calendars are different - in 2003, it’s really obvious that the entire day is blocked. In 2007, everything is just “pleasantly shaded”. Here’s a nice picture to show you what I mean.


So he’s the second from the right. You can see how everyone else puts their meeting information in their meetings (when it’s not me setting them up - 99% of the time it’s me anyway, except for this guy). And you can see that his are blank, and he’s got one on the top, which means “all day”, and since it’s blank, I don’t know what it means. And sure, the day is blocked, but when you’ve got a zillion things to do and you’re only quickly eyeballing calendars to see what’s open, and since it’s only “pleasantly shaded”, it doesn’t necessarily look like he’s out. Then I schedule something for him, and then he sends me hate mails saying “Why did you schedule me something? I’m not available. I’m out of the office. Blah blah blah blah blah.” Then I have to scramble to fix it.

This KEEPS HAPPENING. I can’t get used to it! I don’t think there’s anything I can do, either.


(Special thanks to the Photoshop smudge tool.)

Geek it up!

I’ve got Uncharted 2 and BrĂ¼tal Legend sitting in my bag right now, waiting to be played. . .

I finally finished Dead Space - lots of fun! Stupid last boss was a pain in the ass though. PSB had to deal with me swearing about it for a half hour or so.

I’ve also been playing The Path, which honestly may be the first video game to ever give me nightmares. It’s not even that scary, it’s just weird and gloomy and trippy. Definitely worth checking out, even with the nightmare getting. . .
