    I am either going to get fired or promoted :lol:

    I don't care what happens, she wanted, I wanted it, no big deal if it costs me my job I have a few weeks left before getting my diploma! No more boring night shifts!

    And besides she's not the first coworker I got to play horizontal limbo with :lol: damn, I wish there was a place where I could be cruder, so many stories I have!

    So she's your boss's boss and also the highest boss's daughter? This is getting confusing. I think we're going to need a flow chart.

    Close enough :lol:

    I am a supervisor, so I got a team of my own to manage. My boss manages a district, she manages the entirety of the districts, and her dad owns the buisness.

    I hope that makes sense :lol: I worked last night and my boss made no comments about that party so I think that the secret is safe, at least for now. :lol:

    You did use..... never mind. Leave it for the MUG.

    And now for something completely different: Public transport.

    I calculated that in order to arrive at my work only 11 minutes late, at eight a o'clock Am I have to leave at 5:33. It is a casual 45 minute drive. Real casual, not Endor casual.

    I prefer Tatooine casual myself, listening to BYPQ 97.3 FM The SOUND of Moss Eisley with Jor'lam Boo'daq. But it's true it takes en eternity to get anywhere, with the jawa crossings and the occasional sand people attacks, man it's tough in out there. :rolleyes:

    45 minute drive, that's what, 40, 50 km? You can bike faster than that. Even taking it relatively easy you could be there at least half an hour (assuming 50 km) before the bus does. Well, depending on wind. And the government wonders why public transport is not seen as a viable alternative. Aside from taking you from where you are not to where you don't want to go, it's usually not cheaper than taking the car either.

    Ascension Demogorgon is terrifying. In other news, I have recently upgraded to the lofty status of Posting Professional!

    My semester's officially over as of yesterday 16h00. I've a mild hang over, apparently drinking 5 or 6 pints of ale will get you drunk, who knew.

    But what's a guy supposed to do now ? I haven't got any classes or lectures to attend, no paper to write or read. What the hell will I do for the next three weeks ?

    What's wrong with to me ? Christmas break used to be awesome, now I kinda miss Uni...

    On a brighter side, I finally have time to read tome 3 of a Song of Ice and Fire. I guess I could do that.

    I still have tome 4 & 5 of a Song of Ice and Fire to read, but I don't. It's depressing and not really going anywhere.

    Undead need love too

    So I finally come back here after all these years, hoping for some light conversation, only to realize the chatrooms have apparently been abandoned.

    What gives? Have all the old cats who still knew how to use IRC gone and got themselves a life out in the real world? :D

    There's a chat function at the bottom of your screen (or at least it's at the bottom of my screen).

    From what I can gather that's supposed to be a private chat function, seeing as the chat rooms are empty. Are you saying the chat applet replaced IRC?

    It just seems like a part of the community has died. Not that an IRC channel full of idling regulars could be considered "alive", but still... :p

    There's a bit you hit to go to the chat rooms (it's an icon that sorta kinda looks like a dark shaded head with, maybe, a couple of white shaded heads on either side). There's FAI and Minstrel's Medallion, not that they get all that much use.

    The IRC channel was just as empty so there wasn't any point in keeping it around any more. This applet is at least integrated with the boards so that when/if someone actually wants to chat, it's much easier to do it and they keep their board avatar and username.

    I suppose so. Unfortunate, but understandable. Other IRC communities I used to be a part of are also dying.

    I guess I'll stick around for a while. Since I'm playing BG1 again back at home, it almost feels like the last decade was just one weird, long dream. :shake:
