    I just had a group of library bigwigs from the second largest school district in my state come by to pick my brain about VR in schools. During this meeting it has come to my attention that I am now considered not only THE expert in video gaming in school libraries in the state, but also THE excerpt on VR in public schools in the state.

    I am unsure how to react to this revelation.

    Well obviously you'll need to dress the part.

    With that schedule it's grand jury, right?

    Grand jury is kinda interesting but you're expected to agree with what the prosecutor is asking like 99.99% of the time. You're basically a rubber stamp making sure the prosecutor isn't being overtly illegal.

    Granted, that could still be pretty annoying on a variety of levels.

    Dammit royce, you're a scholar. Your hand feels funny, you still feel pain, you feel temperature, just pinched nerve or some shit.

    Might have something to do with that damn bullet proof vest digging into your pressure points 9 hours a night. 12 if you take the bus home.

    edit: Hmmm, 8% apr with my credit union vs the 20% with my current card company...with whom I also have an auto loan.

    I wonder if I could just apply and see what I qualify for.



    This is what i do when I'm off work. See I'm an adult.

    Historically, how much I value an interview has little bearing on how tactless I am in that interview.

    ... how tactless MY FRIEND is, yes.

    this is exactly like the time I interviewed for an undergraduate engineering scholarship from Rio Tinto and when they asked me if I had any questions for them, I asked if the recent downturn in their stock prices reflected the geopolitical turmoil in their main extraction areas and whether this boded poorly for the industry as a whole.

    Hey Tynic, next time I have an interview lemme hook up a bug and you can sit in an unmarked van outside and give me tips on what to say. That can seriously help me avoid a shitstorm like what I had this past September, I tell you what.

    The key to questions is understanding if the set of possible answers contains any of the following: "because we're idiots", "we should have that, but embarrassingly we don't"
    If so, tread with caution. Or don't, because red flags don't wave themselves.

    The only real question I want the answer to in job interviews is "is it ok if I never get to the office before 10am", but I feel like this gives the wrong impression.

    "Every Breath You Take" by the Police.

    Could be worse I guess.

    Eyyyyy fellow creepy-song bros. Considering I was such a quiet baby that my folks thought I had died several times via crib-death, that sounds morbidly apt. Then again, my mom jokingly says she "forgives me" for how much stress put her through during childbirth so I guess it's a wash.
    26 hour labor because the ultrasound was detecting a 2nd heartbeat so they thought my mom was having twins, only to realize after she tried to give birth naturally I was one giant baby which resulted in an emergency C-Section.

    13lbs 8oz

    Yeah, she's still a lil' pissed about that.

    My mom had a similarly long labor with me. My second middle name is that of my grandfather, on whose birthday I was supposed to be born but I decided to be a slowpoke. At one point the nurse who was on shift when my mom was admitted came back on shift. She got into the room and said "Oh my god Mrs Stedeth, you're still here!?"

    Haha yeah, my mom still loves to tell a couple of stories about my birth in addition to my birth weight.

    First was when she was into about hour 20 of labor and she was beyond exhausted and was wailing to the nurse, a large muscular black lady who had obviously seen some shit and knew how to deal with patients. She leans over to my mom's bedside and in that matter of fact, I know what I'm doing but I'm trying to comfort you somehow voice, replies "Honey...at this point there is only push...ain't nothin' else to do."

    2nd after my mom was in recovery for a couple of post-delivery days, they moved me to the nursery and apparently I was bigger than the practice dolls they had for new parents to learn how to put a diaper on the baby so they got permission to use me as a demo. One of the nurses who showed me off to my dad as he looked through the glass lifted me out of my crib, looked down in surprise, then to my dad and mouthed "Damn big baby!" to my dad.

    I've gotten pretty lucky with this so far, but I feel like I wouldn't be able to get away with it outside of West Coast tech jobs. My "9-5" is more "10:30-7".

    I got up at 3am today so I could get to work early enough to finish up and be out before the MLS cup kickoff at noon. Made it home in time, even with going for a run after work first.

    Got home, pulled the match up, did up some hotdogs, chips and jalapeno poppers with myself wrapped up in Sounders kit and YEAH BOY SOUNDERS WIN THE MLS CUP!

    And it all started with a hilarious own goal. (skip to 6:25)

    BTW, we got to win the cup in a home game with the largest turnout ever at the same stadium that hosts a major NFL team. Parade is on Tuesday, I'm already trying to figure out how I can duck out of work for that one but I don't think I'll be able to afford to.

    So last week one of the network engineers in the company passed away suddenly. He's been with my mother company for 15 years.

    They just had a little wake for him in the office and I didn't think I'd be crying this much.

    MLS has that weird league followed by playoffs doesn't it. I guess so the East and West Coast teams get to play each other?

    Wonder why they don't just have a 24 team national league.

    Crippling travel costs and also the team that's crossed 3 timezones will be at a pretty big disadvantage. So I guess you'd want to minimise that?

    First snowfall of the year so of course everyone forgot how to drive. There was one car fully backwards, just sitting in the middle lane of the interstate, a saw another car spin out on the interstate, one down a deep ditch, and police responding to accidents at each exit along. The radio, when it got to the traffic report was a straight minute of reporting car accidents.

    I had no issues because I don't drive like an idiot.
