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

Take me with you. I have a friend in Western PA who says it's in the mid 60's and rainy there.

Yikes.  Someone's getting the ax from IT.  If someone took down any money making business during business hours when I worked in IT for a few different banks, it was grounds for termination and I've seen it happen a few times.

We are under a microscope like that as well. Part of job is keeping record of all banker activities and we discovered a massive loop hole last week, well it turns out dev overlooked it on deployment, if it was our team that would've fucked up there would have been hell to pay.

Today was Day 2 at our new site out in the burbs.  Last week, I had my own window office in an urban high-rise with mahogany furniture...this week, I have a workstation in an open-office in suburbia.  Sigh.  It could certainly be worse (I mean, I have a job), but it's definitely an adjustment.

Hmmm...high rise w/ Manhattan skyline views vs. suburbs, with a partial view of a parking garage and maybe some trees in the distance, plus a much more complicated commute...

Morning peeps.


Hired another new guy. Really chill old (even old compared to most of you) dude. He's a retired dude who got bored, so he wants to pick up some of our special shifts that I sometimes only get 24 hours notice on. Win win for both of us. Plus he lives like 3 minutes away.

Evening guys. Going go-karting as a work event tomorrow which means I get to bail work early, no complaints from me.

In other work news I found out today that they are probably firing one guy who is newer member of the team. I can see why they are going to fire him (if they do) but it still sucks, he is a good dude but it's not the right fit. I do believe they are going to merge my role with his and promote me, which I'm not sure how I feel about.

My wife told me we've had 4 inches of rain in 2 days.  That's a crazy amount .

Can’t wait to get out of work early today.

We had a ton of rain too this past Monday, it’s weird here in NC when it rains it just rains non stop

Well, sorry for the complicated commute. That can kill the whole deal, but....I'm definitely a suburb guy.

Suburb guy as well, but these NJ commutes can be miserable.

Saw DT changed the setlist a bit last night and I'm all  :omg: now

Northern NJ is brutal. My college roommate lived in Wayne. I mean, just to go to buy beers was ridiculous.

Morning.


I'm lagging in getting ready for work. It's going to be a long day. One of the things I've gotta do is let a guy know that he doesn't have a job as of Monday. Nothing he did wrong. The client is wanting to save money and cut hours at that account. 3 dudes are affected... But this guy the most. Sucks too because he just quit his second job to go full time with us in Oct.

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.

I might be able to keep him on part time, and move him to our main account. The only problem with that is our main account requires a certain degree of computer proficiency, which this guy is severely lacking in. What I KNOW I will do is put a good word in for him elsewhere. I've got a buddy who is an account manager at another company. I'll give him a call and personally recommend this guy.
