    so real quick,

    what do we think about the news that Topless Robot is working on a reader forum?

    Personally I think it's too little, too late. I already find myself not dropping by the site as often. If the first story of the morning doesn't interest me, I might not bother looking for another story to read until I get home at night-- by which time I probably already saw the news elsewhere.

    I feel bad for Luke, and I don't know what the actual site stats are, but I just feel like a lot of the regular traffic is drifting away.

    Which means a lot of people I liked interacting with are now gone.

    Hi guys. Been coming down with a cold over the last few days. On Saturday and Sunday, the air in Eugene was really smokey due to winds bringing smoke from wildfires further away. I don't if that contributed to anything or not, but it really sucked doing the sign waiving outside with the smoggy weather.

    On another note, yesterday me and some friends went to the movie theater for a "super secret double feature" (a.k.a. pay for one movie, see it, then sneak into another movie). We saw Mission Impossible 5 and Fant4stic. MI5 was good, and I'm glad that's the one we spent money on, because even having seen it for "free" I still feel that Fant4stic was barely worth it. As bad as I expected it to be, it was still worse than that.

    How is everyone?

    I am swamped at work these days. I am ready to get all this off my plate and slow down a little. Now that schools back in I am itching to get some range time in. I haven't been shooting since Polk and I went.

    On an unrelated note: I need a haircut.

    It's weird because I know the exact moment when my hair became too long for my liking. It was last tuesday in the middle of the night. I woke up (probably to pee, but also because the sleep apnea and the machine *might* be contributing to a middle of the night wake up) and suddenly felt the har ticking the tops of my ears and the nape of my neck.

    Things have only gotten worse in the 6 days I have tried to ignore this development.

    I'm embarrassed for myself.

    There's a woman who works at the bank. I go there every day to make store deposits and this woman is an appropriate age, is cute and is nice to me.

    Today she came to the store to have her phone looked at. She's married, has three kids, and it's obvious to everyone in the Universe that I have an enormous crush on her. Which even if she weren't happily married would mean nothing because I would never make a move.

    So tonight I contemplate drinking this strong beer and pretending I don't sometimes wish I had something women might find attractive.

    You have a thankless job,  and nobody is making it any less of a hell.  Comfort yourself that it will be over soon and you won't have to deal with it any more.

    Oh, I can't wait for this to be over. I love her to death, but this is not my thing, and the attitudes I'm encountering make it much less enjoyable.

    And we have just under a month to go before the wedding.

    Well it seems it airs at 3 in the morning. Now I know!

    Thanks Rk!

    Speaking of Airing in the wee hours of the morning, a week or two back I found out that FX or FXX aired the pilot episode of a Wheel of Time TV series with absolutely zero marketing or fanfare. It's apparently a maneuver for the production company to hold onto the TV/Film rights. I looked it up on Youtube and it's absolutely awful. It's based on the prologue of the book and looks cheap as hell.

    Kegs, there's a short story by Neil Gaiman called Other People that you should read. It takes an interesting look at that concept.

    I will hunt it down!

    Also, does anyone know the name of the reality show which is almost the same premise as Face-Off but instead of people effects they come up with scenery and set designs?

    A couple of ideas.  She has a psychological thing she's not admitting to.  Perhaps she thinks she can smell her own sweat or something and opts to cover what she *thinks* is an offensive odor.

    Maybe she eats a lot of raw veggies and farts a lot.

    Maybe she s just a contrarian and wants to do what she wants in spite of someone complaining about it.

    I'm betting it's the psych thing.

    Well, she forgets a lot of things.  She'll do something or not do something and our boss will say something and she acts like it's brand new information.

    I imagine it's psychological, because I think she has some other mental issues, based on how she acts sometimes.  It's just weird to walk in and see something spraying themselves with lysol.

    I'm also aware that I probably have a bad tone when I talk about her.  She makes my life difficult, and 40 hours of that every week can wear on you.  But I'm trying to develop a more "whatever" attitude.

    If this is the same woman who has things scribbled on pieces of paper that she later can't find when she needs them, I am leaning towards a learning disability. I know that was a theory of yours as well.

    She might be highly functional but just marginal IQ.  I knew a girl like that once.  Looked and acted normal.  Ask her any question requiring her to know something and she'd giggle and get embarrassed and let on that she "isn't smart"

    She can't spell.  So she'll type something, and the boss will tell her that she spelled something wrong and her response is "well, I have fat fingers."  As if she's The Thing with giant hands.  The boss will say what does having fat fingers have to do with proofreading.

    I don't know bout the rest of the stuff, but the lemon scent thing... maybe she really loves that scent, and wants to carry it with her wherever she goes. She definitely seems like the type to not care about inconveniencing others.

    She loves the smell of air freshener.  She has 3 different scents in her office.  The day the boss told her to tone down the spraying, she said "oh, I just love the way it smells!"  And I don't think she thinks about inconveniencing others.  She just doesn't think.

    Happy weekend everyone. Long week for me so I'm ready for a break. I did see Mad Max Fury Road was released early on digital. I watched it again last night. Great movie.

    A couple of ideas.  She has a psychological thing she's not admitting to.  Perhaps she thinks she can smell her own sweat or something and opts to cover what she *thinks* is an offensive odor.

    Maybe she eats a lot of raw veggies and farts a lot.

    Maybe she s just a contrarian and wants to do what she wants in spite of someone complaining about it.

    I'm betting it's the psych thing.

    Well, she forgets a lot of things.  She'll do something or not do something and our boss will say something and she acts like it's brand new information.

    I imagine it's psychological, because I think she has some other mental issues, based on how she acts sometimes.  It's just weird to walk in and see something spraying themselves with lysol.

    I'm also aware that I probably have a bad tone when I talk about her.  She makes my life difficult, and 40 hours of that every week can wear on you.  But I'm trying to develop a more "whatever" attitude.

    If this is the same woman who has things scribbled on pieces of paper that she later can't find when she needs them, I am leaning towards a learning disability. I know that was a theory of yours as well.

    She might be highly functional but just marginal IQ.  I knew a girl like that once.  Looked and acted normal.  Ask her any question requiring her to know something and she'd giggle and get embarrassed and let on that she "isn't smart"

    She can't spell. So she'll type something, and the boss will tell her that she spelled something wrong and her response is "well, I have fat fingers." As if she's The Thing with giant hands. The boss will say what does having fat fingers have to do with proofreading.
