  1. I went to the ER, in doctor recommendation, about three weeks or so into shut down because there was a lump in my sack. It had been a little uncomfortable for a day or two before then, but soon as I felt basically a third ball, I called and they said to go on. Went through basically the same as you: a lot of ball touching and an ultrasound. It turned out to be just a cyst that went away on its own, but I did get this incredible statement in my discharge papers. All time great.

  2. Now that I am working maybe I will come back to this thread to keep myself accountable... or at the very least prove to myself I am not wasting away. I am currently on TWO paying jobs. I mentioned in my last update that I had landed a pitch-- that is job one. If anyone is familiar with the website CryptTV, they are a repository of horror short films. They got a big influx of money from an investor and are taking some of their short form IP and giving them a glow up to become full on TV shows. I can't say which of their things I am working on, but they hired me to write a pilot episode and

  3. I hope it goes well, Ender! I have an interview tomorrow morning for a job maintaining and updating contracts for a property management company. Basically stuff that an attorney would do, but who wants to pay for that? I have an interview on Monday with a dental insurance start-up for positions not yet listed. One is related to a position that is listed, as a Member Success Representative, which sounds a lot like customer service and would be a step down for my career, but if the money is right, I’m willing to consider it. Especially since it’s not an entry level position. The other

  4. I just accepted the job offer. I start the 28th. It's a $2 dip in pay, but that's actually okay - I'm still in the process of getting disability, and there's a cap on what you can earn to qualify, so this should keep me comfortably within limit.

  6. This morning, I finished my 1:1000 Enterprise-A model, and its base. I am pleased with how it turned out. Hopefully, some of you might like it too. Here is what the base looks like originally.... I painted it to look like a Class M planet, and here are a few shots.

  7. In my dream, I was creating a new trivia game called Beat the Weasel. In the game, you had to answer more questions correctly than a weasel. So off I went to ask a weasel some trivia questions. Of course I went to the beat place to find a weasel: the college in my hometown. I went straight to the administrative offices and explained my needs. A woman directed me to a specific secretarys office. Noteable that in this dream, this secretary had an office, in a building full of secretaries without offices. I did not ask why she had an office, though I was curious. So I go ask this woman an

  8. I just love "YOU DON'T KNOW ME" posts decrying assumptions made by the other person that immediately go on to assume a lot about that other person.

  9. Not really a new job, but a couple weeks ago I had a zoom meeting with my boss and his boss. I had requested it because there were several things going on like work piling up, us having to do a lot more than normal (even before covid), and the fact that my seniority doesn't seem to count for anything. I laid out a case that my group does far more than other groups do with the exact same job titles, yet does not get any additional compensation, and the way I think I came across was pretty upset. Not sure how I was actually perceived, but I felt really upset. It was one of those conversation

  10. Boom....I have an interview. It is a 6 hour drive (it deep in the mountains with lots of twists and turns) so I am tempted to take a half day, but I think I will save that in case I make it to the next round.

  12. Topic title speaks for itself. But if you want more information (and why the hell would you, you perverts?), my almost 5 year old, Eliza, ran in for a hug yesterday. Only she had her arm up with her elbow pointing out and rammed her elbow into my junk. I went down hard, just was on the floor for a couple of minutes, and finally got up. Figured it would get better. Iced it. Took ibuprofen. Didn't help. Went to Urgent Care today, the nurse practitioner told me to drop my pants, so I did. After a couple minutes of looking, she sent me to the ER, where I got a whole bunch of people to

  20. I'm not rolling my eyes at Marc's statement as much as I am that it's just very much part of his pattern. He shows up, only posts in the Lyceum generally, makes some half-assed statements to be contrarian, likes to act like he's smarter than everyone, and tries to impress us by being oddly bipartisan (but not really). He'll imply somebody is uneducated on the topic at hand, or say something outrageously prejudiced, then when there's pushback he cries about how YOU DON'T KNOW ME or WALK IN MY SHOES or IDAHO IS DIFFERENT and proceeds to poke at people the exact same way he's claiming they a

  27. That is something! I’m 99% sure I got the job. The interview included things like “you’ll be the perf... I mean you’ll be the point person” and “you already have a broad knowledge of the products, so that will be so much easier.” But they’ll tell me officially by next Wednesday.

  28. I had a pretty good first interview. I always count it as a good thing when the interviewer laughs at something you want them to laugh at. She said I should hear back today about whether or not I’ll be interviewing with the team. I kinda wish she had said it would be longer, and then surprised me with getting back. Now I’ll be expecting it all day. But, I know they got a lot of applicants, LinkedIn shows 91 applicants through that platform, and I got through to the first interview, so that’s something.

  29. Blogs worked when we were a busier board, and didn't want people cluttering up with any random thought. Now we're the opposite. We're begging you to start a thread with any random thought you had in the past 25 years so we can discuss it and talk about our thoughts related to those thoughts and how we're better than everyone else online.

  40. One of the things I struggle with is the idea of these types of mediums just hanging around forever, figuratively. How something said seventeen years ago comes back to haunt a grown, matured person who is just out there in a vibe with their world all chill and then boom. As a culture it feels as though we are shackling ourselves with digital restraints, electronic ghosts, skeletons made of ones and zeroes. Some people might just have what was supposed to be humorous rants dangling about, others what could be more serious things, most things probably out there with no context what so ever, and

  42. So here's my question, perhaps no answer can be found. If a person had an infinite life span, and was able to know all that there is to know from a human perspective living on our Earth from its inception to present day, of absolute political ideology, an absolute understanding of how government acts and reacts and governments' motives for doing so, the motives of human mentality, what balance is the right balance between individuality and collectivism, and was free the trappings of passion and warfare, had struck the perfect balance of emotion and logic,had a command of both human intellect
