    Like some are "Oh my god what are you doing." furries. People who wear costumes and so forth. "Fursonas."

    And then some are like "I could see myself getting behind this." Like the totally hot furries that you see in some anime and jRPGS.

    Here's a question for you. If I consider myself to be homosexual, but I occasionally see attractive women and for one reason or another rationalize attraction to cartoon animal people, what does that make me?

    Typical SE++ poster?


    Tallus, there was a dude at PAX wearing the flat earth shirt the same day I was wearing my Paramecium cowboy SCIENCE! shirt, but that guy refused to high five me.

    I was upset

    for science.

    maybe he actually believes in a flat earth

    Also, I met a guy who writes D&D novels who was wearing the geocentric shirt and he was a really cool guy. We listen to the same podcasts. It's like if you're a really hardcore fan of The Girl from U.N.C.L.E. and you've never met another person who is, and then you do.

    That was me at PAX.

    I had a starbucks today. Their sandwiches are rubbish.

    This is relevant because it was during my travels for work. I have been in my car for 8 hours today. Sitting in traffic. It makes me so angry and I dont even know why. Like I am actually angry at people for being stupid enough to crash their cars.

    damnit. I was thinking about sucking it up and actually applying to the starbucks near me even though I dislike the place and don't drink any form of coffee or most teas

    Good man.


    Probably the worst thing about my job is that I don't have enough hours and don't get paid enough money.



    Aside from that, it's pretty cool.

    Yeah, I like it so far.


    I don't pretend to imagine this is a typical PR job, either, it's pretty much me and my boss in the Department, we're kind of building it from the ground up. It's weird, because a lot of times I feel like in the next few months shit is going to get crazy because we have so much planned, but on the other hand there are days when I show up and the boss is in meetings all day, and I've finished pretty much everything I need to do, so alls I've got on my plate is "come up with ideas for our upcoming projects".


    I like to think I'm pretty rad with ideas, but after a while it's just like "I wonder what SE is up to...."

    GameStop will suck out your soul and then sell it back to you, and you won't even get to use your discount on it.

    Yeah, 7 years. Started as a GA, worked my way to management, was in line for an assistant then left for Southern Indiana for college. Started at a new GS, got up to management, was in line for assistant, then got passed up. Repeat last step 3 times. Then quit before I was fired for uncovering unlawful activites done by former store manager and district manager.

    Now i'm back at the one I started at. And its ok because I work at a movie theater as a projectionist 40 hours a week so I only work at GameStop once a month. Get the discount, and only 5 hours of terror a month. Plus I actully make money now.
