Ugh, sorry to hear about your dad Joe. My dad had similar issues with my grandmother being stubborn about independence. It's really tough.

We're working on him.  We want him to understand that "we: want him to be independent as well.

So looks like the cruise is ass kicking.  That pick with Ren was awesome.

The cruise has been stupendous so far. Glad I took the plunge in going, it'll be tough for me to find a better lineup than this. Today we're in port, but I'm staying on the boat and resting this morning as we've got

2pm Spock's Beard
4pm  Frost*
5:30pm Neal Morse Band
6:15 Kansas (will miss the first half or or so because I'm staying for all of NMB)
9:15 Haken
And then potentially catching bits of Patrick Moraz and/or Angalagard later on.

Dear fucknuts my head is killing me. I hate these weather-induced migraines.

Come to think of it, I hate all migraines.

Just came in early to work because my boss asked me to. I asked why he wanted me to come in early "I forgot" was his response.

In other news one of the jobs which I was grossly under qualified for in December called me back today and said if I was still interested they'd still like me to come in for another interview.

Well I wanted this job but during the testing I just didn't have the technical knowledge which was fine when they passed on hiring me but if I get another shot at it I'm going for it.

The job that I was more than qualified for never called back to schedule an in-person interview and has ignored follow-ups. Back to that drawing board.

Oh. A new thread.

So to continue on with the cryptic work related post from a few days ago..

Basically my current place of employment is turning to shit.  My supervisor stopped giving a rat's ass a year ago. I left here for 6 months and then returned to the place almost in flames. I am used to feeling like I am one of the few people here who give a damn, but now I feel as if I am the ONLY one. But now I know I am the only one. Rumor has it (well not rumor, it is truth...) my company is in negotiations to pick up another property a few miles from here. Similar in size. If this happens, I am going to step up and tell the owner of the company that I want to be involved. I want to supervise the property.. even if it means I still work under my current supervisor (who kinda acts as an area supervisor... we are the farthest account away from the company HQ. They have 2 designated area supervisors who run shit down south, and once in a while they make their way up here). I feel as if after 4.5 years, this is my chance to move up with this company.

Or, my other option is to leave and find something else. I need to find something and stabilize my life, and pay off some of my debts so I can try to go back to school. My problem is I have no idea what I want to do with my life.
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

It will probably be a few months before we get the property (if we even do.. its still in the early stages of bidding.. but the property manager for the current property I work also manages the potential new property, and is pushing for us.)

 I think I would be a great choice, as I have the most seniority out of any of the employees up here (I've been here longer than my supervisor. The only reason he got the job over me in the current property is he has prior law enforcement experience.) I also have a great working relationship with the property manager here, and id you ask any of the board members for the HOAs we work for here (5 total, 1 master, 3 sub associations, and one other association.. lotta politics here), no one would ever have anything negative to say about me. Hell, there have been meetings where the only positive things said security wise were ABOUT me).

It would be a fresh start... that also hopefully involves a pay bump. I already can and have practically ran this place at times. I've done scheduling (even though I have no management title now, I still am the one pointing out issues with the schedule and fixing them). I have done payroll in the place of my supervisor. I have great people skills and can build relationships with those who I should have them with (Board members, etc). I know the ends and outs of the job. I just need the chance.
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs.
