@achewood I had to look up how pi is derived. It has been sixteen years since the SAT, yet still, I feel very ashamed

Two interview this coming week! Nice.

Also: was doing a super frustrating data thing with the Bad Boss and ... damn... for a smart guy he sure doesn't know how to read or listen. I kept explaining that the dataset he told me to look at was only for people born in 1980 and he kept sending feedback like "only look at the current data" and "the 1980 data is not relevant do not include it."

Eventually I threw my findings on a map, and APPARENTLY all he wanted for the last 2 years is for me to make pretty maps. I just did the basics (put the numbers on a map, color code with pretty colors, add a title and legend) and he was astonished. The first time in 2 years of work that he's responded to something I did entirely positively instead of nitpicking it. Maybe he didn't know I could make maps? I have definitely made them for him before...

Downsides to moving to a cabin in the woods? Bears maybe.

Both members of The Couple having "wait am I in the wrong career" meltdowns is resulting in a lot of "what if we just move to a cabin in the woods" conversations. Are there downsides I'm not thinking of yet? Hm.

Yeah it's an entry level tech job so it pays... 20k more than my city job. I think.

Applied to a job at a tech startup today. Maybe I can get hired and deal with a whole opposite type of frustration.

And more money?

Sounds like you've worked out a nice plan to get the birds in the freezer You should invite Sarah Palin over. But don't you want to do the job yourself? Do you get no satisfaction from it, like imagining it's one of the assholes from work as you slit it's throat?

Yeah, exactly. There's actually a YouTube video that attempts to calculate what Bojack's worth. It was interesting, but it didn't have much to say about syndication and residuals (which I certainly don't know how those work), so it's hard to say it it was at all accurate.

I didn't think about residuals.

I watched the first two or three episodes of Maniac then stopped.  Everybody at my work loves Izard but I thought the first season was boooooring

The turkeys are 12 weeks old, so they've reached the point where there very loud and active, with all kinds of peeps, chirps and twitters from them when something riles them up. No gobbling yet, they need another couple of weeks for that to kick in.

Anyways, Spouse and the youngest boy like to walk across the yard and go "gooble gooble gooble" at them because they completely lose their birdy shit for about 30 seconds.

Turkeys are cool. I mean, I'm still going to slaughter and eat them, but they're cool.

(a 4H friend started a new AG program at a charter high school and her kids have turkeys as a project but the school won't allow them to slaughter on site. I'm going to host them to slaughter their birds, my price is, they do their bird then they do one of mine for extra learning practice. I'm not proud, I'll take child labour.)
