A coworker at the old AV company once almost got fired, because he picked up an (empty & unused) Biohazard bag from a job site, deciding to use it to carry electrical cables in rather than lug them individually as the rest of us were doing. When we were unpacking cases at the wharehouse and that bag appeared, the bosses flipped out.
Turns out there are laws regarding the procedures for disposing of a biohazard bag. Even if supposedly unused. To 'protect us' from mistakenly presuming that an empty bag is harmless I suppose?
Having that reaction from a place with actual biohazard?!?!
Yeah,... new job time. Even if you adore the sweet smell of puke & biowaste. :P
I dunno,... Sounds fishy to me,... ;P
Now CONDORMAN! THERE was a superhero! ;)
I don't suppose there's any chance the monkey can get nibbled on by a radioactive Condor of some type is there?!? :)
Trapped in my office, (Actually a utility closet for the water controls of the fire-suppression system. Because in 1960 they didn't think anyone would need an office backstage?!?) Because of work going on my new stage floor.
Lots of sanding, buffing, etc of the new floor (what they have done so far) so they can color it and seal it starting today. Vacuum -powered sanders are keeping the majority of the dust under control, but there is still plenty of the really fine stuff floating around making me sneeze.
And my 'office' has NO ventilation. Unless I open the door. None. Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. :/
One the one hand, I am safe in case of zombie apocalypse. (Cinder block walls and a steel door from the 1960's)
On the other hand,... It is Louisiana, and it is getting hot outside.
At least I'm not bored! ;P
EDIT- At least I work at a university, so they don't block ANYthing over the interwebs. (Although going to certain types of sites will still get an employee fired,...) ;P

Set schedules are good.
Knowing where you are going to be working each day is always good.
Back in New Orleans, I worked for the local branch of a nationwide AV company. We worked in EVERY building in the city at one point or another. Multiple times. When we were busy, (Which was often) I would stumble out of bed each morning and have to check my calendar book to see where I was working that day. :P
<Sigh> I have to stop reminiscing now. I miss hourly/overtime. :(
So, where was I,...? Oh yeah!
I've been so busy today, I completely forgot about the anniversary.
I'm with Aimless above.
Salute! <Drinks his Hard cider and grills dinner> ;)
Sigh,... You have no idea,...
<Old wizard bends over as he fervently fills out Flood Insurance paperwork trying to get SOME of his belongings replaced>
State Farm here, my whole life I think. (I MAY have had a brief period of insanity when I was newly single again and trying to save $$, but otherwise,...)
I agree though, it DOES all depend upon your agent, not just the company. :)
We have had minimal 'incidents' vehicular wise (Praise Be) but our agent(s) were always helpful and nice.
AND we bundle our cars with house (Now that I am actually buying a house) to save money. We have had more claims on our renters and now Home Insurance than we have our cars, (Thanks again that my wife and I are intelligent drivers!) and again they always have been helpful and nice. They always give me as money as they can. (Or at least as much as they SAY they can) After my deductible, of course. ;P
Only complaint I have about State Farm is that they keep raising the cost of my home owners insurance every year, EVERY year, claiming that it is due to the rising costs of actually replacing the home if needed.
(But,... My home is only worth $X, your only going to GIVE me $X no matter what. So what does it matter if the cost to build the house again from scratch is now $Y ??????) :P
I should probably open my laptop and clean it inside... *sigh*
I've,... never even thought about that. :P
On the other hand, I DO vacuum my desktop 'game' PC regularly. (And the family PC)
Oi,Yeah I did have take them my laptop last year, for some reason (never found out why) my laptop stopped recognizing my login credentials. As if my user account didn't exist. But when I logged in with Safe Mode, I could dig through the hard drive and find everything. (?!?!?wtf?!?!)
Long story short, they did manage to get it back, but I made darn sure to download everything I didn't want to lose onto a large USB drive first. Just in case. :)
I seriously stopped trying to call/use Geek Squad when I called them with a problem, told them everything I had done to try and examine the situation, and the Geek Squad tech told me over the phone "Well, you've done everything that I could do." (Which wasn't much, apparently) ;P
Finally got one to admit that the 'techs' at the store didn't know much (I'm not saying that's ALL of them, just what this one person said about this store) but they all had a USB drive with various programs on it to fix problems. IF the USB couldn't fix it, then they had to ship it off to a center with 'techs' who actually knew what they were doing! :P
I am seriously in the wrong business. :/

You too Monkey-man!
I want MY kids bus drivers to have good nights sleep in them before dealing with my little monsters,... erm, I mean,
Heal indeed Treppa!
I got sucked away (meaning we DID make it to the beach this weekend) into a torrential downpour. :(
I think there was more seaweed than water, (Honestly, I've seen lees green in my salad!) And the wave was 1 red flag, (the lifeguard said it was barely red, but was fine to swim in, just dont head out for the sandbar) but the waves were fun to body surf. If you like being beaten like a pinata. ;P (Apparently my kids enjoy that kind of thing as much as I do)
Honestly, I think we spent more time driving to and from than we spent in the water. But we DID get in the water! And I don't get to visit with my family but a couple of times a year, so it was good. Great even. :)
Unfortunately, I didn't get to warn my friends before I had to bug out. Sorry all, I will catch up on Pbp's and such soon. Like tomorrow. Night.
I still have to prep a lesson and a script for a class of 11-14 year old theater students for tomorrow first. :P
And with that, wave-beaten Wizard go night.
Glad your ok Ambrosia,
MY friend (WHo now lives in Tampa) says he doesn't understand what all the fuss was about.
I don't think he, quite, realizes how bad it is around him. ? ;P
Best wishes to all in FL and surrounding environs. :)
EDIT- In my friends defense, those of us raised in tornado alley tend to think that if it isn't roaring down on top of you, (literally, in the case of a tornado) then it isn't something to worry about. Flooding sometimes happens, but that's not our main concern.
I have lived 20(ish) years in LA. I now know better. :P
Ah hah! Know I know. Did NOT realize they came out with a third before the online game. :P
I have the original fable. The game itself is not too bad, I enjoyed it, (I never finished it) but those 'bonus' side things, (presenting the monsters head to X# of people in X# of seconds?) EGAD! :P
OTOH, it CAN be purchased for a reasonable cost from GOG and then downloaded and played. I got one of 2 bundles when GOG got a lot of old Star Wars games for a great deal. And they are always having sales.
OR you you can be like me, and still have your old Original Xbox copy and an original Xbox to play it on. :)
Sleep? I had that. Once. It was wonderful. :)
Keep up the Governator Impersonations! :)
Seriously, sleep, rest, recuperate.
And come back ready to go all James Bond-Jaws on those who dare to oppose your cybernetic rule! ;P
Fortunately (For us, not the poor people who live there, including one of my old college/gaming buddies) the storm passed to the East of where we are going in the panhandle. So we might still get most of our 3 day vacate. :)
I'm still trying to get in touch with my friend who lives in Tampa, make sure he's ok. :(
I lived in Sarasota for a year, supposedly it wasn't able to be flooded. (Like it just did)
Prayers for any and all who live there or have friends /family who do!
You call that a snack?!?
I can't eat that all-natural junk. It aint healthy I tell ya!
Vegetable with dinner? Isn't meat a vegetable?
Which explains my not-shrinking waistline,... :P
that's ok, I find that every time we get in to a situation that actually requires us using 'the rules', I've forgotten them as well. :)
The good news is, we obviously have a lot of fun just RP-ing, because this ain't your usual D&D fight-every-5-minutes-game! :)
(But when we have them,... duck and cover!) ;P
Welcome to the party! :D
I don't even like fighting games, (Mainly because I get to play them so little that I stinketh at them)But THIS game, THIS game I would buy. AND learn to play. And become very, very good at. :D
Sorry, channeling a little rage-against-the-stupidity at work myself lately. :)
