Today is the 2 year anniversary of the Fort Mac fires.  I haven't been able to bring myself to go back yet, but I am planning to go back next month when my friend from there has her "Yay! I beat cancer!" party.

Random tears today.   :'(

****.  I am starting to realize how vulnerable I will be soon, with a little one.

Case in point: our specialist has been trying to get us an OB since March.  This process involves calling a phone # and leaving a message and faxing the hospital in question.  There is no way to follow up on a response. 

So on Thursday evening, Joan woke me up sobbing for not having heard back.  She does this - defers stress until it boils over.  I didn't know what to do so Friday I went to the hospital in person before it opened... and it worked !  A few more calls and emails connected the fax-ers to the fax-ees and we have an appointment.

I am pissed off, though, that such a simple and yet crucial process takes weeks, and requires an in-person visit.  Another thing: FAX ??? How much time is wasted with that.  If you saw the fax we received, it's abhorrent in its indescipherability... :(

Faxes are legal, emails not because they can be altered.

The receiving clinic just scanned the fax and emailed it to us :(

Yes, the legal community is full of morons. A fax is just as easily altered as an email, but the brain dead liars (lawyers) are so full of themselves that they couldn't extricate themselves from a wet paper bag.

Imagine the judges.... Like those Senators questioning Zuckerberg about Facebook, who clearly hadn't seen a computer in their lives.

Yup, you can do electronic signatures and realestate transactions by email and never physically see an agent.

Well, my product launched but... it's been bumpy.  My offshore team has been a little skimpy on preparation for certain things and it shows.  A few small security issues, some data issues. 

We're getting through it, however they have also hired a young manager to assist me and usurption is in the air.  I am ok with it.  :)

I met a bartender who is either really into me, or really good at convincing me that she is.

Hmmmm.... there's always the danger that they are just doing their job, albeit in a friendly way.

Also.... how big is Kim City that you seem to meet a new person every few months ?  I thought it was a tiny town.

I may on occasion exaggerate how small Kim City really is.  There are over 125,000 people in Kim City itself, plus roughly 30,000 more in nearby municipalities and unincorporated areas, and it's also the regional hub of a pretty large area.  It's also one of the fastest growing communities in Canada, behind just a handful of cities in Alberta and Saskatchewan.
