At least we're going back to the plot arc where he starts referring to himself as an African and that he's about to "go home to Africa."

He won't have a job waiting here, so he might as well go "home".

Well, to be fair, it's absurd that you apparently have to fear losing your job for taking a 10 day vacation in the States.

But that's the way it is, and it seems like he's going to need a new job every year if he insists on taking all this time off.

I agree... here, there chase people to make sure they take their leave and don't store it up. Largely because it becomes a large liability for companies if people don't.

Last drive-in movie experience I had was "The Lion King" / "True Lies" double feature back in 1994.


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Bird on a Wire... 1990... in Canberra.

They're clearly better with nostalgia than they were in reality. They're not necessary any more, if people wanted them, they'd be thriving, but they're not.

Sorry to interrupt, but this NT preselection seems to be blowing up in Gillard's face.

I think it's a big deal for the media... time will tell if it will filter down.

Personally, I don't think it was the best move.

-Wear a hoodie... no age limit, but social scenario is important (I have 4 hoodies that I wear in winter)
-Wear a band shirt.... I tend to judge anyone wearing a band shirt as a bit sad... so any age, go nuts
-Wear pre-torn jeans... NEVER
-Watch hipster indie movies... what matters is if it's good, not how old you are.
-Live in a hipster neighborhood... if it has what you need, and you're not living there JUST to be hipster, any age
-Play video games... eh any age
-Play Pokemon... 12
-Watch Family Guy... any age
-Watch My Little Pony... 10 (female)
-Go to shows and mosh...

There's way too much kumbaya going on here... OMG everyone is just awesome... but there are limits. And while saying "you're probably too old to do that" might make you sound a little stiff collared... there is an element of self-respect. And since the OP has not very much of that... then please go nuts. Go to your shows, your odd Church and watch shows designed to pre-pubescent girls.

Didn't see that... sorry. Um, I might be able to do something this (late) afternoon/evening, but I've got dinner plans.

I'm staying with a friend in Evatt, so as long as it's somewhere driveable/with parking, I'm happy. Free from now until about 7 also. Maybe Lyneham? Not sure where is good and has airco :p

CRAP! A work thing has happened, so I can't do today...

PRESS RELEASE


President Polnut will be making a statement on his endorsement for president in the next few days.

But he made this statement in advance of the endorsement announcement.

"I have always put the good of the country first when making a decision as to who should lead this country. At times, this meant I disagreed with friends, former colleagues and my own party.

But after occupying that office, I feel a special responsibility to support those who want to use the office to benefit all and to continue to progress our nation and our society to a better, more open and more tolerant place.

After what has been a difficult term, I hope the next occupant of the White House looks at it as more than something to do, a title, or a note in the history books, but a trust to keep for all Atlasians"

Australia does have some curious minor parties.  Here's one,

http://www.sexparty.org.au/

and its Mission Statement:

Quote
The Australian Sex Party is a political response to the sexual needs of Australia in the 21st century. It is an attempt to restore the balance between sexual privacy and sexual publicity that has been severely distorted by morals campaigners and prudish politicians.

Tolerance of sexual free speech and sexual expression is one of the main hallmarks of free and democratic nations. Intolerance of these qualities is one of the hallmarks of autocracies, dictatorships and theocracies.

The vast majority of Australians are relaxed and tolerant of a broad spectrum of sexual expression but state and federal governments have increasingly ignored this demographic and pursued policies and legislation that have restricted sexual free speech and expression often under threat of large fines and even jail sentences.

The Sex Party is fed up with wowserism in Australian parliaments. It is frustrated by the lip service paid to gender equality and sexual identity by the major parties when real and meaningful law reform stalls on factionalism and behind the scenes handshakes with religious leaders.

The Party has registered with the Australian Electoral Commission and has signaled its intention to field candidates at all levels of government over the coming years.

What's 'wowserism'?

The Sex Party got preferences from me before the Christian Democrats did...
8264  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Mitt Romney is first losing candidate to skip inaugural since Dukakis on: January 21, 2013, 09:23:57 pm
It makes sense when you consider who the losers were since Dukakis.

Bush I: Outgoing President
Dole: Former Senate Majority Leader
Gore: Outgoing Vice President
Kerry: Sitting Senator
McCain: Sitting Senator

Granted, Dukakis was still Governor after he lost, he wasn't connected to the federal government. Romney has zero connections and zero reason to be there.

Yep.

Exactly... the guy gives enough ammo without having to invent outrage?

March 1 is the eve of my son's 9th birthday.  Felix will be 9 years old on March 2.

You have children?  When did you get married? 

Bushie thinks sending Kenyan children $30 a month makes him their father.

When I am their ONLY source of financial support.  Maisha Orphanage calls me their father.

This is just another thing you need help on. I sponsor a child, I don't think I'm his fricking father. I know you need a life, and you're reaching for something... but leave them alone. Your money is the most important thing you can give them.

I love how Bushie uses these sexual innuendoes like "I have a plan in my cooker" and "I have my antenna up, obviously referring to his penis and impregnating a lady. I also imagine him walking around with an antenna on his head and I start to laugh to myself.

Ah, so this is what you and Andrew do in your "video chats" eh?

Jealous?

No! I mean.... Just...

No need to panic, sure. But an opportunity to give yourself a swift kick to the head and realise your constant mistakes, and what leads to them.

1. listening to your parents, who aren't necessarily as cluey as you think
2. Going into a job that you're totally unsuitable for

Maybe ask yourself... not God, not your parents, risk allowing your actual thoughts and feelings to come out... what am I actually good at? what do I enjoy doing? If those two are in conflict, always choose what you're good at. Especially in your situation.

How the hell will you be able to keep up your apartment for three months without work?

8274  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Days of Bushie's Life (Update Thread v4) on: January 15, 2013, 12:31:54 am
At least something is happening in this tragedy now. Only 2 days after Bushie turns down another job to "wait and see what they will do," he gets canned. Of course, this is one of the reoccurring themes in this series. I applaud the writers for at least changing the topic off weather and Sizzler's steakhouse.

The thing is I'm not gone, yet.  I still have 6 1/2 weeks before I become a free agent.

Inks, to be honest, I don't believe this guy that there is a year guarantee.  I even have a tough time believing the $14.  That's why I want to get both in writing.  That's also why I am not going to put all my eggs in that basket.  I've got something else I'm going to check out tomorrow after work.

I have two places to go tomorrow, one being the Indian doctor in Utah so I can at least get my Indian health services transferred up here.

I do feel bad for taking off so much VTO, but there's nothing I can do about that now.

Going back to Oklahoma into my parents house is the absolute worst case scenario and last resort.  Moving to Oklahoma is my second-to-the-worst case scenario because I have the ability to pull my house off the market.  The cheapest scenario and the best case scenario and my desire is staying in Utah in this apartment and extending this lease.  I am very confident I'll have a job before February 8 when I need to make arrangements on where I go from here.  I will find something.  I am willing to give sales a shot if there is a manageable base salary attached.  Also, the possibility does exist, albeit very small, that the cut will be canceled.

You were warned... but the thing is... if you don't make a target of sales... won't you get canned anyway?

Sales?!?!? you have to have figured out you're not cut out for that.
