I nuked your double post at 4:22pm lolgaxe, but aside from that neither of you have any nuked posts. Nor do you appear to have posted in any nuked threads.

I knew about the double post, and appreciate it's elimination, but digg and I are talking about this one. Also comments on the picture: I still don't like how it says you have nuked posts, because then people end up wondering just what those posts were instead of being out of sight and out of mind. And I'm not sure why, but the line breaks don't seem to always work, or are too thin sometimes and too thick the others and just looks like a mess.

Ah I see it. So your post itself isn't nuked, it's just in a nuked thread. That's why I couldn't find it, it doesn't show up as nuked to me. The time difference between us meant I didn't look through it to check myself.

For what it's worth, I also don't like this view of nuked posts. I'd open up a thread in feedback if I were you. I don't know if they'll do anything, but it's worth a try.

Negative. 18 hours (17:21 to be exact) from now puts me at 1000 EST, which is when my comic books are released.

You really won't find a quality watch that isn't a status symbol of some sort, especially if you want it to have a clean face and quality leather.

And as for you smashing your wrists into things, that's why sapphire glass gets used.

Pigtails, if you haven't had an analog watch it takes time to get used to. It's definitely a lot better looking when you have a nice timepiece on your wrist as opposed to a clunky digital. It's the equivalent of going out in sneakers as opposed to oxfords, driving shoes, or loafers.


EDIT: and yes, I know I come off as kind of a snob.

Edited, Apr 2nd 2012 7:35pm by Theophany


Heh, I don't ever wear oxfords, driving shoes or loafers either. =x I'm too cool to wear those old fogie (foagie?) type of shoes. In all seriousness though, I'm a big fan of comfort. I like dressing up **** on occasion, but very rarely will anyone see me dress up in anything that makes me uncomfortable, or that is difficult to move in. I do have a cute pair of mary jane's with a one inch platform sole though. And they aren't too terribly uncomfortable. Luckily for me I can get away with wearing trainers to work, otherwise I'd be in a lot of pain after a 5 hour shift. Stupid bad back.

Speaking of work, I had a great day today! I impressed the regional manager, who had called to talk to the on duty manager about something that happened yesterday. She told him to make sure to tell me I was doing a great job, and he was really happy and excited for me. Made a big deal out of it, and told one of the other cashiers when she came on around 11am. And then on top of that, one of my customers called me beautiful today. Which was especially nice since the only make up I was wearing was mascara. ^_^ I hate morning shifts lol. I never have enough time to put on make up AND blow dry my hair.

Thanks! The main reason I'm really excited about this is because one of the managers is leaving in the summer, and I'm really hoping to get his position. Then I could have more hours, higher pay, and it'd be nice to get some managerial experience.

Oh I know. I'm not excited about the prospect of getting managerial experience. I just think it's a good thing to have. I'm excited about the prospects of getting the manager job period, because better pay and more hours = I get back to Eugene (and my men and friends) faster.

Most energy drinks seem to. Especially Monster/Redbull/Rockstar. Their almost all sugar/caffine, and no actual taste good-ness

I've yet to find an energy drink I enjoyed. Plus, I usually have 2-4 cups of coffee, so that much caffeine makes my heart go WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

I've tried to cut down on coffee.
Down from about 4-5 cups a day I'm now down to 1-2 aswell.

I used to get so bad withdrawal symptoms when I hadn't had caffeine it made me want to shoot myself.

Depends on the coffee. I can't stand Coffee Shop type coffees, like from StarBucks or Dunkin Donuts. I go to this hole-in-the-wall deli and get a cup for less than a buck in a little blue cup. I don't have to argue with the person on what type of coffee I want. I said coffee, which means I want f'in coffee. Then I go to my office and drop a shot of Baileys in when no one is looking and I'm happy for the rest of the day.

Until I want another cup of coffee, which after the first I don't add the Baileys to subsequent cups.

On that note, my sis-in-law was in NYC for a week last month. Her biggest complaint? She couldn't find a decent cup of coffee all week.

Well that and her BF booked their flight with a transfer in San Francisco. Hello flight delays!

GRMBL. Mother@#%^ing clients.
I got an email today that stated that the photo I used in one of the flyers I made them was "totally unacceptable". They sent it to me as the photo I HAD to use.

First they send me about a thousand pics to sort through wanting em to use positive, happy photos. Then the photos I pick make people look "too handicapped", the flyers are for a non profit organization who provide day care/jobs for mentally handicapped people, they want to advertise their stuff to mentally handicapped people and their parents but the people in the flyers can not look mentally handicapped (But perfectly happy)? Then they send me pics I have to use and when I use them I get told that some of those photos are totally unacceptable... WTF GUYS, ARE YOU RETARDED!?
Also endless new versions of text and even after a dozen revises and checks I STILL had to correct basic spelling and grammar mistakes.

Yeah, I haven't flown that much, but every single time I've had a connection in SF there have been delays. Stupid fog. When I was 16, flying back from a funeral for my great grandmother was the worst. We got held up there for around 10 hours in the middle of MAY! And the worst part, was that I was supposed to get kidnapped by the kids in the Natl Honor Society the next morning around like 4 or 5 am as part of an induction ritual. My mom wasn't supposed to tell me about it, but she did just so I would know since I wouldn't be getting much sleep and all. I don't think we got back home until around 2am or so, because after leaving SF we had to fly to the Arcata airport, and then drive all the way back up to Brookings.

They're just horribly unprofessional and seem to fail to grasp that they're sending out a very bad message by saying that mentally handicapped people looking like mentally handicapped people is a bad thing.

Most of the west coast flies through SFO or LAX to get to the east coast unless you fly with Alaska Airlines or United, then you generally go through ORD (Chicago), or DEN (Denver).

Yes, I've flown way too much. I'm in the hundreds of thousands of miles flown and I'm only 27.

Clients are like that. I'm lucky in that most of my clients know my family (or at least my dad), so they can't act ridiculous. I set up in my first meeting with them their expectations, write it down in the contract I have them sign (which is legally binding), and if they choose to break it, I still get paid for my time.

Especially when it's art-involved, make sure they know that you know more than they ever will on the subject and explain your reasoning fully. Set up what their expectations should be and provide a paper trail that you can go back and point at when they're like "THAT'S NOT WHAT YOU SAID WE'D GET" and say, "uh yeah, in this email I said ______ and that's what you've got".

It's funny when you get litigious with clients, all of a sudden they calm down and act very professionally instead of acting like they have a telephone pole up their ***.

Yeah I don't think cheap and black is her idea of coffee. More like some espresso thing that takes you longer to say than to make.

I like being able to walk into a deli and saying "light and sweet" and walking out with coffee. I don't like asking for my drink and arguing with what "light and sweet" could possibly mean, and then being told a menu worth of variations of what I could possibly have.

I don't drink coffee (or caffeine at all, for that matter). I work out to wake up in the morning. Smiley: grin

I've never been able to figure out why people like it. If I want something warm I'll drink hot chocolate since it's delicious, and if I want something cold I'll drink water or gatorade.

Caffeine is bad for you.

Caffeine is only bad for you if you go crazy with it. Coffee, and cocoa are actually both really good for you, as long as there isn't a ton of milk and sugar added to it. They're supposed to help prevent heart disease I think.

I don't drink coffee a lot though, never have. I don't like the idea of being dependent on any sort of chemical, so I only have coffee or energy drinks when I need them, or on the rare occasion where I just want one. Somehow I'm able to subconsciously exclude my meds from my dislike of being dependent on chemicals. I've majorly cut down on my soda intake since I moved back in with my parents too. I might have one or two a week now, if that.

GRMBL. Mother@#%^ing clients.
I got an email today that stated that the photo I used in one of the flyers I made them was "totally unacceptable". They sent it to me as the photo I HAD to use.

First they send me about a thousand pics to sort through wanting em to use positive, happy photos. Then the photos I pick make people look "too handicapped", the flyers are for a non profit organization who provide day care/jobs for mentally handicapped people, they want to advertise their stuff to mentally handicapped people and their parents but the people in the flyers can not look mentally handicapped (But perfectly happy)? Then they send me pics I have to use and when I use them I get told that some of those photos are totally unacceptable... WTF GUYS, ARE YOU RETARDED!?
Also endless new versions of text and even after a dozen revises and checks I STILL had to correct basic spelling and grammar mistakes.


Yes, I used retarded on purpose there. They deserve it.
Clients are like that. I'm lucky in that most of my clients know my family (or at least my dad), so they can't act ridiculous. I set up in my first meeting with them their expectations, write it down in the contract I have them sign (which is legally binding), and if they choose to break it, I still get paid for my time.

Especially when it's art-involved, make sure they know that you know more than they ever will on the subject and explain your reasoning fully. Set up what their expectations should be and provide a paper trail that you can go back and point at when they're like "THAT'S NOT WHAT YOU SAID WE'D GET" and say, "uh yeah, in this email I said ______ and that's what you've got".

It's funny when you get litigious with clients, all of a sudden they calm down and act very professionally instead of acting like they have a telephone pole up their ***.
It was a last minute job and got us a new client though, so that's ok with me and next time we'll get things sorted properly. I just needed to get that out of my system.

It keeps amazing me how people just don't seem to have a clue about what they want nor how to show that. Then again. that's what I'm supposed to be earning my pay with for the foreseeable future so I can't complain.

Also I now have a 50mm F1.4 lens. F1.4 is **** <3

That's the kind of coffee I like too. =x Well, it doesn't necessary have to have a long name. I just like coffee with lots of sugary stuff in it. Like Caramel. Mmmm. Espresso coffee with Caramel is so yummy.
That's not coffee anymore.
I like cappuccino but I fully admit that that's coffee for pussies, if you add caramel syrup and what not just makes it a warm sugary drink and not coffee.

On that note, my sis-in-law was in NYC for a week last month. Her biggest complaint? She couldn't find a decent cup of coffee all week.
Sounds like your sister in law is a complete and utter failure at life. Serious. If you can't find a decent anything in NYC then it's time to bite down on a cyanide pill.


Too true.

How does she like her coffee? Turkish? French? Italian?

Maybe she prefers tea?

Interested in some Japanese baked goods? Maybe you want some amazing, Turkish spinach and chicken (which happens to be the most delicious meal I've ever had--seriously, anyone in NYC should go). No? Okay, then how about Tibetan food?

Etc. :P

And Aeth, he's pretty.

I know, right? But I grew up in Chicago and I'm kind of crazy about what I put into my body (the only medication I take is for my allergies so I can actually function from March to June), so I think I have an excuse. Coffee isn't good for you in the form we can get it.

No, caffeine is bad for you. If something taken in large doses is harmful, then even in low doses it's not good for you, it just isn't actively harming you.

Linky, we keep some of the pure stuff in the lab as a standard for some of the instruments.

Quote:
Toxicity to Animals: Acute oral toxicity (LD50): 127 mg/kg [Mouse].
Chronic Effects on Humans:
CARCINOGENIC EFFECTS: 3 (Not classifiable for human.) by IARC. MUTAGENIC EFFECTS: Mutagenic for mammalian
somatic cells. Mutagenic for bacteria and/or yeast. May cause damage to the following organs: heart, gastrointestinal tract,
central nervous system (CNS).
Other Toxic Effects on Humans: Hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant), of ingestion, of inhalation.
Special Remarks on Toxicity to Animals:
LDL [Human] - Route: Oral; Dose: 192mg/kg LDL [Woman] - Route: Oral; Dose; 400 mg/kg LDL [Child] - Route: Oral; Dose:
320 mg/kg
Special Remarks on Chronic Effects on Humans:
May cause adverse reproductive effects (fetotoxicity, maternal (parnutrition) and birth defects. May affect genetic material
(mutagenic). May cause cancer (tumorgenic) based on animal data.
Special Remarks on other Toxic Effects on Humans:
Acute Potential Health Effects: Skin: May cause skin irritation. Eyes: Dust may cause mechanical irritation. Inhalation: May
cause respiratory tract irritation. Ingestion: Harmful if swallowed in large amounts. May cause gastrointestinal (digestive)
tract irritation with epigastric pain, abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Affects metabolism and cardiovascular
system with symptoms including increase in metabolism, flushing, palpitations, rapid heart rate, dysrhythmias, hypotension,
blood pressure elevation and weight loss, metabolic acidosis. May affect brain and behavior/central nervous system..
Symptoms may include nervousness, anxiety, restlessness, insomnia, dizziness, tremor, seizures, convulsions, hallucinations,
somnolence, toxic psychosis, tremors, convulsions, ataxia. May also affect blood, respiration (hyperventilation), and urinary
system (mild increase in urinary volume and urinary sodium excretion), and may directly produce hypokalemia. Chronic
Potential Health Effects: May cause cancer (tumorigen) based on animal studies. May cause reproductive and fetal effects.
May cause digestive tract disturbances (increased gastric acid, and pepsin secretion and a decrease in lower esophogeal
sphincter pressure), cardiovascular disturbances. Since it is a CNS stimulant, it may also affect the Central Nervous System
(CNS).


Fun stuff. Smiley: nod

That's not actually true though. It's an interesting idea, but something can be good for you in certain doses and bad for you in different doses. Take water, or salt.
