I told the VP that I'd wait in a sort of hang out area until my boss gets in. That's where I am now.

Well this is disappointing, I haven't watched it yet but am/was pretty excited for it

WC does that after every episode (yet continues to watch). So if you liked the show before, his reaction is probably pretty meaningless.

I also don't yet have a place to sit, which I don't think is a big deal in itself. What's kind of weird about it, though, is that the VP mentioned a couple of seating options and both involved cubicles that do not currently exist. So, there is no plan in place right now and it seems like it will be AT LEAST several days before I have a place to sit.

I liked Mike figuring out what happened and his subsequent trap. Cool spy stuff.

I liked Chuck plotting his evil scheme against Jimmy and bringing Howard into it. What a bastard. What is he up to?

I like the relationship between Jimmy and Kim and how you have to wonder how hard she is going to fall. Wow, I feel bad for her.

I think the scence with the Air Force guy was supposed to show an aspect of Jimmy's continual transformation, but didn't completely work for whatever reason.

First day at new job! There was no discussion about what time I should come in. I showed up about 8:30. I learned that my boss was out on vacation and his boss, a VP, was running late. So, the receptionist called the lone colleague in my department for me.

This is a German girl who seems maybe a tad shy of being fully proficient at speaking English. We introduced ourselves and then she just marched me straight to the VP's office and told me I could sit in there and wait if I wanted. I was like "Maybe I'll go find the bathroom and check out the gym. Or even leave and come back in an hour." She said okay and then turned around and walked off.

So, I went to the store and picked up some $6 reading glasses to leave at work and $10 worth of lottery tickets.

The VP was there when I got back. He said and did a bunch of totally normal stuff for the next several hours. BUT THEN, as I was getting ready to leave, he told me that he wanted to share something with me. I'd learned earlier that he was a wrestling coach and has a son who is a star wrestler. He then told me that he'd taken his son to Nationals as a 14 year old and felt terrible because his son lost immediately. His reaction was to write a letter to his son. The letter is what he wanted to share with me. So, I sat there as he read verbatim this 3/4 page, single spaced, deeply personal letter about winning and losing and trying and getting back up and learning life lessons. As he's reading it, I'm like, "Oh crap. How am I supposed to respond to this? Is my response going to sound phony? What's going on here!?" Luckily, he kept right on talking after reading and the conversation flowed naturally.

Tomorrow, my boss will be in! One of the things I remember about him from my interview is that he started out by saying, "Basically, our crap is all mumped up."

I heard an expert on TV say that if they wanted to destroy runways, they wouldn't have used tomahawks.

It baffles me that a conspiracy theorist like dax doesn't recognize an obvious coverup when it's right in front of him. On the other hand, maybe it's just that subscribing to a wild conspiracy theory about the coverup rather than believing the coverup itself holds more appeal for this type of person.

The top Democrat on the House Russia investigation, Rep. Adam Schiff, said Wednesday President Donald Trump personally promised documents at the center of "unmasking" allegations would be made available to all members of the House intelligence committee, but that White House staff is fighting those documents' release.

LOL, so power companies are saying right now that they have no plans to change their plans . . . until of course, when they change their plans.

SMDH at the simpletons around here.

No, that would be a misinterpretation.

It's not about ISIS saying something negative. Unlike other things they've said, ISIS calling Trump an idiot is funny because it's true.

Reuters surveyed 32 utilities with operations in the 26 states that sued former President Barack Obama's administration to block its Clean Power Plan
...
Of the 32 utilities contacted by Reuters, 20 said Trump's order would have no impact on their investment plans; five said they were reviewing the implications of the order; six gave no response. Just one said it would prolong the life of some of its older coal-fired power units.
...
"Utility planning typically takes place over much longer periods than presidential terms of office," Berkshire Hathaway Inc-owned Pacificorp spokesman Tom Gauntt said.

There's a goddamn DIY show called 'Building Off The Grid'. I've just watched three episodes in a row.

U.S. Rep. Joaquín Castro, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said Tuesday that he thinks that some associates of President Donald Trump will end up going to jail over their connections with Russia during the presidential campaign.

But in one small way, Trump has altered his Twitter style since taking office. He used to frequently send out tweets containing two (!!), three(!!!), four (!!!!) and up to 15 (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) exclamation points at a time. That practice, interestingly enough, came screeching to a halt January 20, suggesting, perhaps, a conscious effort to tone down the exuberance and appear more “presidential.”

These people have always been Democrats. They're not pushing a far right agenda for ideological reasons.

Other than Kushner's weird obsession with Steve Bannon, is there any evidence that he's corrupt?

His own family history and 100% dedication to his role as an heir. Trump's profit is his profit.

They're thoroughly corrupt. Overall, though, I'd rather see Trump listening to people whose suggestions are ineffective due to severe lack of experience than to those who know how to get crap done.
