The longer it takes them to let me know about this position, the more I think I fucked it up. I can't get it out of my head. I'm hoping I didn't ask for too much $$$ for the promotion, but am second guessing myself.

The person who got the position was a team lead in the department and already knows the processes and procedures. I can totally see why they chose that person. My message to the hiring manager was:

Fair enough! I’m sure they’ll do amazing. I mean, I would have too, but so will they!

Meh. I'm over it. I'm moving forward with some things in my CURRENT job that I put on hold while the application process ran its course.

Saw this food truck on the freeway on the way home from the hospital (image yoinked from their website, because it's a better image).



I *will* find you...

Got 2 reddit silver awards (my first ever) and 388 points for this post I made about reinterpreting the Wizard of Oz films in other genres:

Horror: Transported to a surreal landscape, a young girl kills the first person she meets and then teams up with three strangers to kill again.

Reality TV: Two women fight over a pair of shoes.

Action: In a race against time, one woman struggles against a sinister foe bent on her destruction.

Crime: A green-skinned mob boss rules Oz with an iron fist. Can Dorothy escape her clutches long enough to find the reclusive lawman who can give her the tools she needs to free the city?

Soap Opera: Woman bonds with new friends over hardship, only to find out that the man she is pursuing is hiding a dark secret.

Documentary: The winged monkey, native to Oz, is both aggressive and mischievous. Once free-roaming and plentiful, their numbers have plummeted in recent years. They can primarily be found on the conservation lands in the west of Oz.

So I just got a friend request on facebook (that my sister had to tell me about, because I don't do social media anymore) from my 51 year old half brother. This is a person I only vaguely knew existed. My dad got married young while he was in the navy, had a son, and then the marriage ended badly. I know very little in details because my dad doesn't like talking about it.

I've wanted to try poutine ever since I first heard about it. Still haven't had any, after all these years.
French fries. Brown gravy. Cheese curds.

Make the fries however you normally would, while making the gravy. Once the fries are done, sprinkle the curds on top of the fries, and then pour the gravy on top of that.

Serve in bowls or on plates, but be prepared to have a wonderfully messy time eating it up.

Cheese curds are actually hard to find if you don't live in cheese country

Then don't bother making it on your own.

Must be curds. Shredded and you're just making chips, cheese, and gravy. You wouldn't think there would be a huge difference but it's so important for proper poutine.

Hail to the curd.

Which is why most people in the states haven't had it
