    Argument with supervisor! Hooray!
    I was finishing some old customer notes and selecting 'Customer Contact' instead of 'Other' in a new drop down box. Later he tells me that results in customers being sent emails asking 'So how was our service today?', so he asked me to make sure I clicked 'Other'.

    No problem, that's cool. But we've never sent those emails out before, and never had this drop down box explained to us, so I ask 'When were we going to be told about the emails going out?'

    To which he responds: "Well you're a pretty smart guy and it's pretty self-explanatory" in a tone so ripe with condescension it made some of my hair burn.

    I say "Uh, there's no need to be condescending about it."

    He said "Well I think you're being pretty condescending about it."

    I'm all WTF and ask "How is it obvious that a customer will be sent an email?"

    He says "Well you know you've worked here for a while I would have thought you'd know how things work by now."

    I got sort of irrationally angry about it and left my desk for a while to calm down, but he's a dick and will no longer be a recipient on my hypothetical christmas card list!

    So ripe with condescension it made your hair burn? You should probably see a doctor about that burning hair sensation.

    That sounds like a pretty dickish move by him. Also, no need for a doctor Pert Plus is the way to go.

    I was under the impression he just has an oddly shaped hat-like head.

    Yes, that is a great show. My cousin and i watched a season of it, and then she realized that her boyfriend still had the 2nd season, so we couldn't watch anything after that. Well, I couldn't. Had to go back to skoo. It would be nice to watch more of it this summer though.

    Yeah, I know now; apparently two years ago or something. The problem is that I never bother enough with YouTube to catch these things, and that's about the only place they seem to show up these days.

    I've been curious, but it's not like there's any chance this book won't release and we won't find out.

    It can take a while to orchestrate book printings, and Khoo said he was campaigning for extra inclusions of artwork from the contest, which is super nice! So until they're certain how many they can include, it's understandable that they not mention any winners in case the circumstances change.

    I just had a casual conversation over Facebook IM's with a distant cousin whom I've never met. The guy lives in Slovenia (where the Ponikvar line is from) and doesn't speak a lick of English. I had to use Google Translate to speak with him. As it turns out he lives just outside the village where my roots are found. One really interesting thing is how since "Jonathan" isn't a name in Slovenian -- and my profile picture shows both my fiance and myself -- he didn't know if I was a boy or girl. We spoke for about half an hour, sharing little tidbits of information on our families, lives, and plans. All without speaking each other's native language.

    Technology is a really incredible thing.
