Here we see the stale male, invading a co-worker's cubicle in search of sustenance.  He bypasses the dish of breath mints and begins foraging in a stack of work orders.  Failing to find anything edible, the stale male calls out in search of attention.

"Question for ya! Question for ya!"

Attracting the attention of his co-worker, the stale male asks a series of inane questions.   

"Did we get the purchase order from--"  "The install manual needs some changes. Can you--"  "Do you know how to change the currency in the quotation form?"

The stale male's display has failed to impress the female, and he is chased away by other males with more pressing issues. He retreats back to his den, grabbing a handful of Christmas goodies on the way.

My son and his wife took their 6 month old to London and Paris. They had a great time, the French love babies. They got things like room upgrades and went to the head of lines.

Soo.... today we're going to try to go where they are people, with baby in the stroller.

Today we become one of those.

Yes.  Angst.  I expect I will perceive spiky objects everywhere.

What doesn't kill the baby will only make it stronger.  Unless it loses an arm or leg.

...in which case, what doesn't kill you makes you weaker.

How is your lady friend going?

Things are very good! We have lots of fun together.  Mostly in bed, but also sometimes not in bed. We've been having a lot of sex, which is good.  We're not at the point of spending Christmas together or anything like that.


She does everything with such style and flair.  Last week she was dancing around with a wet glass that slipped out of her hand and slammed into the counter right below where one of her regulars was sitting. He's sitting there with this startled look on his face and says "...I don't know what I did to deserve that."   Me and probably 90% of people would have said something like "ohmygosh! Sorry! It slipped!"  She, however raises her arms in victory and says "Yessssssss!!" like she's just thrown a game-winning basket at the buzzer.  She's just delightful.

That sounds like growth, right there...

I think so!

She is going back to Calgary for Christmas with her family. I will be on my own for a little while.

She has great boobs for a lanky girl.

Old Economy Steve's son is in town for Christmas, so Steve gave him a tour of the office on Friday.  He introduced me as "our secretary" :( and mentioned that I'm single   >:(


I think that if Old Economy Steve was asked to describe his role, it would probably go something like this...

That's kind of what Technical Sales Tom does, actually. Tom interacts with the customers and understands what they're trying to accomplish, and is able to work with the engineers to come up with something that meets the customer's requirements.  Tom, Good Boss Greg, and Engineer Ed designed a product in 2 minutes last week.

Tom: "Just had a call from a guy who wants to interface his framjack with a zibitz. What do we have that could do that?"

Greg: "We could modify a Flarnex 5000 to drive a zibitz."

Ed: "That wouldn't work. The framjack output isn't strong enough to interface with a Flarnex."

Greg: "What if we use the Flarnex transcoupler inputs?"

Ed: "That could work. We'd have to decouple the fragmatic feedback plasmolyzer from the transcoupler or else it'll be unstable."

Greg: "Gotcha. I'll mark up the drawings!"

Tom: "Alright! I'll let the customer know!"

And thus was born the Flarnex 5040. Just three guys standing around with coffee mugs talking Geordi LaForge technobable. I work with amazing people.

They have to eat some dirt, literally and figuratively.

Absolutely! I once talked to a guy who is doing PhD research in gut bacteria. He said parents do their kids a lot of harm if they don't let them play in the dirt and drink from the garden hose and do all the other gross, unhygenic things kids do.  Your gut bacteria is a mega-factory for all kinds of vitamins and nutrients and enzymes and things your body needs, and if your kids grow up in an overly sanitized environment, they'll miss out on ingesting all the wonderful benign bacteria that create things our bodies need.  People can actually have health problems because their gut bacteria is deficient.

This is also one reason why people should ignore Gwyneth Paltrow's shitty advice about cleansing your colon with ridiculous enemas of coffee and lord knows what else.

They also have to fall on their face, so they will know not to do it again. Shedding a little blood is a good thing as long as it doesn't do permanent damage.

Also, they have to fall on their face so that they know that it's not that big of a deal.  I feel like overprotective parents who treat every minor accident like a major catastrophe are doing their children no favors.  If kids get the impression that each minor setback is a terrible disaster, they'll grow up with fragile mentality.  Kids need to learn that falling down (figuratively and literally) is part of life and that they just need to get back up.

(as someone who has no kids and probably never will, I have no idea what the hell I am even talking about.)
