And I thought my jokes were bad…

The summary from my weekly report at work this week, in which I spent most of the week frazzled to the extreme getting things in order for the SSA’s 2011 Annual Conference, which will demolish all previous attendance records. This conference deserves a better class of organizer, and I’m gonna give it to ‘em. You [Read More...]

Feed me!

It’s Saturday.  Nothing in the world is pissing me off too much.  On top of that, I’m feeling pretty good – which is the first time since the incident a few weeks ago.  Self-image is good, and I’m just laying around like an unshowered sow listening to music.
