circle maintenance time.

are you in on this total nerdfest?  if you added me anytime recently(ok, really in the past couple years) and I didn't add you back, it's because I'm lazy and I get too many adds from spambots.

just let me know if I should be adding you.

Managed to find what is essentially the same medical coverage for my daughter as I had through my previous employer via healthcare.gov.

at reasonable prices, with an easier application process than nearly any employer on earth.

We realize we're all getting hosed, but to be less hosed is still a wonderful thing.

You know what's frustrating about dealing with HR people?  Their insistence on you filling out the same information on multiple documents.

Do you know what an application form is for?  It's for people who don't have a resume.  Stop asking for both.

If I were HR, I'd make people re-enter stuff that may or may not be on a resume because there is zero standardization on resumes. They're pretty much textbook examples of unparseable documents, which means a human needs to enter the info, and I'd rather you did it for free than us for not free.

If anything, it's the resume that needs to be done away with. We'll list the stuff we care about, stick a "Further Comments" box at the end that you can put whatever you want in, and let you skip the whole resume design/formatting/writing mess. And it's lower pressure for you, too, because you'll have a better idea of what we think is important.

If y'all want to come up with some kind of world-standard XML resume format, which you can write yourself and then run through an XML Schema checker before I have to waste time decoding it, let me know.

But even crap like "what is your name" is nowhere near standardized worldwide, so I'm not holding my breath.

Adventures  - 
 
The Queen of Hearts, she made some T.A.R.Ts all on a summer's day.

Our Journey starts with bringing T.A.R.Ts to a market far away.

After a group of princess and princesses retrieved the stolen machines, the Queen manufactured a new batch and has sent a small contingent with the old ones to see what price they will fetch in Qi.

 The Queen wants them to go all the way to Qi on the hopes that fewer of the traders there know of her devices and will possibly find it worth the trip to get more.

Tasked by the Queen of Hearts, the princes were instructed to head south to Qi to sell some T.A.R.T.s.  After a few days on the road, a burst of Iron Wind forced the group underground where they met some Cave Qui and managed not to get into a fight.  With some helpful direction, they navigated the tunnels and made it out south of the Dark Hills safely.  A few hours away, they came across a hunting lodge wherein an abhuman servant tended to a pale woman with black and white hair that covered nearly all of her face.

She introduced herself as Madame Dev, allowing the travelers to rest there for the night.  Pongo's excellent hearing kept picking up multiple sets of voices coming from Dev, which unnerved him.  The brute Ghasto was the strong, silent type.  Paranoid, the group overheard Dev's intentions to hunt down "flying cave beasts" and use their skins for her wardrobe and decided they could not sit idly by.

In the morning, they confronted the pair outside the lodge and Dev had her manservant attack.  After a brief ruckus, and some lucky dodges, they tricked Ghasto into knocking himself out because nobody could hit like he could.  Dev escaped, leaving behind a black & white wig.

While they were trying to track which way she went, the distress cry of one of their lopers.  Rushing around to the stable, they found one dead and the other two stolen.  Off in the distance, two riders were fleeing to the south.  Investigating the house, they found the actual owners had been dead for over a week.  They also took time out to go back and warn the Cave Qui of a possible attack and were thanked for their kindness.  The group then headed south towards Qi.

"I owe you a new copy of Catan" she says...
 In recent years I've become a bit of a board game addict.  Ticket to Ride, Pandemic,...and Settlers of Freakin' Catan!  While playing around with the bar goods, I came up with a little cocktail concoction I call "The Longest Road." Because that what we all want at the end of the game.   The Longest Road -1 part Deep Eddy Sweet Tea vodka (because this is Austin) -1 part berry juice or puree (I used blackberry puree) -1 part water or club...

Oh, I thought this would be about a drinking-game version of Catan.
