Dude at the pub has a monkey wrench in the back pocket of his jeans. Apparently something to do with a show called Naked and Afraid. Well alrighty then.
Needless to say I would rock that show, whatever it's about. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
Um, a guy just chatted me up and gave me his card. He's a defense attorney. Said to call if I get in trouble. I guess I look like I'm likely to need an attorney someday? There goes my theory of being stealth about it. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android

Desktop Engineering position at a national health insurance provider. I'm so pumped! - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Congratulations! - John (bird whisperer)
I have to say I'm very impressed with the Nashville IT job market. We've been here just under 2 months. I started a temporary contract position less than 3 weeks after moving here and have a permanent (well temp to perm but I'm already claiming the perm position) within 7 weeks. I feel very blessed. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
If you work in IT and need a new job/change of scenery you should strongly consider the Nashville area. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
congrats! - imabonehead
Congratulations! - Anika
Should we interpret the "Snoopy Dance" as a clue as to who the national health insurance provider is, or is that just a red herring? - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Congratulations! - Betsy
Definitely a red herring (unintentional) in this instance. Hadn't even made the connection until now to be honest. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I think I find this so gratifying because it provides a much needed confidence boost career-wise for me. It's nice to have someone look at your education/experience/body of work/potential for growth and be willing to give you an opportunity to show what you've got. I feel like I was pigeon holed for years first in dead end call center/help desk jobs and more recently in desktop support... more... - DB, Lil LB's Dad

While I am having a lovely day so far, I am twinged with dread. Last night one of my fillings came out. My teeth are one of the things I'm most insecure about. You'd think therefore I'd take better care of them, but alas no. I just hope for the best and get super bummed when they fall apart. Sigh.
Now Miss t, we are all falling into death and disrepair. Good thing you're so fabulous, then. Be bummed if you want to. I plan to sit here and bask in the considerable glare of your fabulosity. - MoTO: Team Marina

I don't think I've been this relaxed making pie since the first few times I did it. Maybe baking alone with the radio is key. - Heather

Disposable tins are waaaaaay shallower than my pie plate. Much spillage. So smoke. Wow burn-y-ness! - Heather
I swear this smoke alarm is a bastard. It went off, Chris took the batteries out and we aired out the house. It's chirping. He puts the batteries back in.... It's still chirping! *strangles smoke alarm. - Heather

Random fact: a baby's soft spot isn't all that fragile. Not that I recommend inflicting head trauma on infants to test how durable it is, but just touching it won't cause brain damage.

I have hit a new low. My fallback when someone doesn't speak English is Spanish (I'm in So Cal so it works a lot of the time). Unfortunately my brain doesn't think before it jumps to new language so Spanish has come out when I'm in Tokyo for example. Today I used it with a deaf person.
Luckily I've known her for years so once i understood the confused look on her lip reading face we both laughed. :) - Steve C Team Marina
Deaf people can know Spanish, too, Steve. GAH! - Kristin
this happens to me! when English isn't happening I auto-switch to Spanish. I talked to everyone in Thailand in Spanish. it was pretty ridiculous. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra

The weather was great today. I like this new temporary art piece, "Shimmer", that puts colored shadows on the sidewalk. Fitbit's office is in the leftmost building in the picture. Today we had a visitor from the San Francisco office. Per Boston office tradition, he was presented with a lego minifig. Per Fitbit tradition he assembled his own desk. I learned from our visitor that the variety of messages that Fitbit One cheers you on with originated when there was only one color, and couples would get their's switched. Fitbit wanted something more interesting than just displaying a name by itself. - Bruce Lewis

Is there a better surprise for a Trekkie than a visit from Patrick Stewart? The actor took some time out from his appearance at Atlanta's Dragon Con on August 29 to meet a fan named Dawn Garrigus.

Interesting. Didn't realize that employers requiring you to buy your own uniform was illegal. That said, employers seem to be able to get around that pretty easily, by simply setting extremely tight dress codes.

NOODLE
They can be specific, but not too much so. Basically, they can say 'khaki pants, front pockets' but not 'khaki pants with these exact pockets and this exact pleat,' or it runs afoul of not being an "everyday item." - Jennifer Dittrich
