Awesome. Seems like a good career track - dealing with confusing government healthcare rules seems like a growing field, unfortunately for the rest of us but maybe good for you.

Well presumably she makes the effort to go because she can see how important it is to you but there's only so much you can expect of that, you know? I think in any long term relationship, you sometimes take turns going to things as a favor to your partner that you would just as soon skip if you were left to your own devices. I think in those cases showing up is enough, it's not fair to also expect fake enthusiasm.

This reminds me that I have seen a relationship break up partly because the guy didn't seem to understand the lifestyle consequences of the fact that my friend's job required her to get up at 4.30 am. and not everyone can easily maintain a totally different sleep schedule on their days off.

ugh, that is really asking a lot. I can't imagine it being worth going to an event that starts at 10 when I had to get up at 5am for anything short of the second coming of Christ or the landing of the first extraterrestrials, and even then, for sure you'd be able to watch it on YouTube the next day so I'd still hesitate.

Were they offering just one company or did you get to compare several? We actually just switched to a new company and doing the research, the prices were very different. Wirecutter did a detailed review pretty recently, might be worth checking it out.

But I think insurance is always a gamble that different people play differently, you know? We've had many-thousand-dollar incidents with previous dogs and I would like the security of knowing that that would be paid for if it happens, even if most years I'm losing money on the deal. YMMV.

I mean, dogs are the best. Can't live without them. But make sure you have pet insurance for emergencies because they seriously have the WORST judgement.

Do you have an oven thermometer? could be you have been blessed with many old ovens that aren't holding the temperature right.

I think you have to keep Goaty Goat because he is so matchy with the new dog.

WTF. How can the story keep changing like that? Bizarre and giraffey. On the other hand, that's a really good answer when asked why you left your last job, so maybe best to stop asking questions and move on.

Ugh. Well, here's to bigger and better things. I know it never seems that way at the moment, but the jobs that don't want you are jobs you don't want.

There are a lot of jobs that come with probationary periods of some kind, and when they're trying to convince you to take the job, they always make it sound like it's just a formality, and never mention it again. This is no doubt because most of the time it turns out that way but it's there so they can use it if they want to use it, unfortunately.

"Dude" is his name, I assume, and I don't want to hear otherwise.

Maybe it's just because I am incredibly jetlagged, but I have no memory of who that is?

Whoa, I was missing a lot of goat action while I was in Japan.
