    2 questions.

    1. I have Killian's and gin, but am also kinda sick. Should I drink tonight?

    2. If I do, should I assemble Orks, or play Fallout 3, Oblivion, Knights of the Old Republic 1/2, or Just Cause 2?

    if you have to play oblivion, try nehrim. it's a full conversion mod that's pretty great. done in like the gothic style.

    I have it on 360. :?

    And Zampanov, the only good multiplayer game I have is Halo: Reach, and while it's fun, small multiplayer games aren't relaxing to me. Something like Battlefield 2, if I had a computer that could still run it, would be relaxing though.

    bummer

    I vote fallout 3 then

    What kind of gin do you have? Is it good gin?

    It better be good gin

    Um...Tanqueray. Is that good? I don't really like gin, but my parents don't drink and have 3 bottles of it sitting around, so that's what I have.

    Tanqueray is totally acceptable gin, yes.

    drink that shit with club soda and two twists of lime.

    People who suggest Gin and Tonic can fuck themselves.

    I really enjoyed the short stories set in the world, but I assume the movie is a bizarre bastardized version of that.

    I don't know anything about your short stories, but bizarre bastardization sounds appropriate. Watch it man, what else you got to do right now?

    Yeah, it definitely goes in a different direction from the short stories.

    But, like I said, it's pretty fun.

    It's not so much a matter of popularity as it is licensing issues and our insane copyright system.

    Because cover letters are an awkward point halfway between a formality and an advertisement. You never know if they're going to read it or not. If they do read it, it has to be good enough to pique their interest but not so good that it sounds like bullshit or flattery.

    In short, cover letters suck.

    What are you stuck on?

    In short, cover letters suck.

    What are you stuck on?

    The places I apply for are typically public/academic jobs, so they're legally/contractually obligated to read them. My problem is that I hate boasting about myself, but that's the whole point of a cover letter. Plus, for jobs that I really want to get, it's hard for me to pick a route I want to take and then stick with it rather than go on about all the different ways this would click.

    Like architecture and planning librarian for SUNY Buffalo. I studied to be an architect and just graduated to be a librarian, plus Buffalo sounds a lot like where I grew up. Or entry level librarian at Chicago Public Library. Which, well let's just say that I probably bore people in [chat] about Chicago at times. If I can get the interview I'm sure I'll be able to nail it, or at least feel like I gave it a good shot. It's just that the cover letter is the step towards getting the interview that I know I'm going to screw up and so instead wind up dying cold and alone, unloved.
