Most interviews are just the corporate version dating.  Why they did or didn't like you can be (and usually is) completely arbitrary.

I've been the "go-to" guy for all the fuckwits at work that are either sick, get fired, or quit, for far too goddamn long.

I think I finally made my point clear tonight, however.

I am not Capt. Saveaho.

That I'm pretty sore from hiking because I've not done it in way too long.

Complaint: I ran out of weed and starting smoking ciggies again.  Will I never be free of these evil brown demons?

I smoked cigs for eleven years, then quit for three, and just recently started again for an idiotic reason.

Cut your losses, man.  I'm trying to quit all over, and it sucks.   :(

Start smoking weed in a vaporizer.

It does taste different, and it doesn't have that burning sensation.  It's a healthy adjustment (one I don't follow, all my friends use bowls and vapes, and I'm the old soul still rolling joints).

I love the burning sensation and am one of those weird people willing to go out of their way to get something with a nicer taste/aroma than the norm.  Plus you lose a bit of the social aspect without joints.

Nah, I'll pass on the healthy option.  Eating a lot of salid makes up for it anyway :D

WTF.  There is no excuse in this day and age that my computer should lag while I'm trying to type an email.

Hour-long meetings with clients that go like this:

"We're still getting together our content and don't have any idea how we want to structure it yet, but we're going to prattle and debate on it in the most inane manner possible, just so we feel like something's getting done. Basically you're going to be paid to sit there and listen, because there's nothing of real value you can offer except yes/no answers that could easily be handled via email, AS WAS ORIGINALLY SUGGESTED. Oh, and we're going to blithely ignore all of your subtle suggestions to that end."

On the flip side they seemed to like me, so I guess my smile was convincing enough.

Did I mention my boss has been on vacation since last wednesday and I am dealing with everything?

I can't wait until he gets back and I can just be a snarky webdev again.

Sounds like you're the go-to gal.


My complaint:

My connection has been too wishy-washy, lately, to do anything reliable on the internet.  Sorry, Ginka.  :(

My team has been decimated binerated.  Through no fault of my own, I swear; they're semi-forcibly moving a handful of people to this new--

Our schedule's primary incarnation is in the form of sticky notes on a 4'x10' sheet of brown paper.  (This is called "agile development.")  My next task is to arrange the remaining stickies to show as shockingly as possible what will be left of the project
IF I DON'T GET MORE MINIONS.
The sword is sharp, the spear is long,
The arrow swift, the Gate is strong.
The heart is bold that looks on gold;
The dwarves no more shall suffer wrong.

I was taking off the starter on a vehicle today and I was like,
"Oh snap, dood. This thing is gonna fall on my head. Let me use my hands to protect myself."
Then my buddy was like,
"Dood... I got this. So put your fuckin' hands down and let me pull this off." he then took over for some reason and actually did get angry at me. He pulled it off after he struggled with that heavy bastard.

Next

I was taking off the oil pan and I was like,
"Oh snap, dood. This thing is gonna fall on my head. Let me use my hands to protect myself."
Then another buddy was like,
"dood. I got this. So put your fucking hands down because you're pissing me off." he then took over for some reason and as he was pulling it off, it totally conked me on the left eye brow. It wasn't a starter. But it wasn't light.

I heard why I didn't pass the phone interview, and it's because I'm not a "personable" person.



Basically, I made tons of jokes and she never got them, and I came off as a weird nerd.

Weird nerds may not be for everyone, but they sure do it for me. 
The secret to great RP is having the balls to be weird and the brains to make it eloquent.

That's so weird.  You work with technology.  People love and trust weird nerds when being told about or sold on technology.

I made a joke about me being Dwight from the office and she didn't get it.

I asked her why and she said she doesn't have cable tv.

I then went on to try and sell her cable tv from THE COMPANY SHE WORKS FOR.


oh god whyyyy
