The wifing unit is, for some reason, less excited about watching episodes of season 5 of The Wire.
This is some decent statistical work: http://tamino.wordpress.com/2012/07/11/thirteen/ Some people might be frustrated about how much of it is an art of making the right assumptions and arguing for them rather than a formulaic algorithm that always gives you the right answer. This is why we get paid the big bucks.
I was going to quit work the other day, but I was hella busy and my boss was in meetings. I was going to quit yesterday, but I was given a crunch end-of-day deadline, so I didn't want to kill half an hour by having that discussion. I could do it today. I'll think of the classiest way of doing it. There's always facebook. Well, I already updated my job stuff on there, but that's hidden from people at work.
What makes this ironic is that the first time I was typing that out one of my colleagues came over to discuss networking me with some people she works with in the division that does the stuff that I would want to do if I were to stay here. I've been LinkedIn-ing my coworkers because I'm leaving soon and want retain the connections, so she glanced at my resume and was like, you know, I could help him out. Way cool, and I truly appreciate it, and I told her as much. Since I haven't announced yet that I'm leaving, though, you know, I didn't want to be all, "That's great, but I'm leaving the company...". Then again, contacts are nice, especially if I decide to escape in 2 yrs with the MS rather than stick it out to become a post hole digger. Also, my boss was talking to the person next to me, so, yeah, that wouldn't work.
We had pinto bean burritos last night. They were good. I unfortunately had too much water in with them, so had to wait a while for it to boil off. I threw curry powder in the beans because curry is awesome.
Things are being prepared. ChiHuSiMeet is going to be a reality. I just hope it isn't boring, the only thing I have planned is hanging out at my place with a handful of people. And maybe going to a brewery. I have games and stuff, a lot of beer, and a fine collection of sausages. Okay, those sound like the ingredients for a good time.
Apparently if all the states go through with implementing the changes the Medicare, the government will be paying more than 50% of all health care costs. That's what PwC says. So we're a little more than halfway to SOCIALISM (since even a completely socialized system might have some cost directly paid by the patient). However, there are rumblings about some states taking the option given to them by the Supreme Court decision not to put in the changes. Presumably just as a FU to the SOCIALISTS. Well, not just as an FU to socialists, there are significant costs being thrown onto the states. The states are projected to have to spend $6B in order to get $76B in federal benefits.
Crikey, I have some work to do. Not... feeling it...
Don't let the sun go down on your grieviances [sic].
Friggin' LinkedIn - won't let me put in August 2012 as the end date of my current position. I think that's something they should support. I'm sure that people with contract gigs and such would appreciate that feature too, especially if they make a lot of their contacts through LinkedIn. The Facebook lets me do it. PS feel free to connect with me.
