So...to hell with doing all the work I needed to do before I run the gauntlet before heading to Portland on Thursday morning (work followed by class tomorrow, work followed by a class where I'm pitching a television show on Wednesday)...I needed to finish Dishonored, damn it.


Playing a game without looking at the clock can be dangerous.

at one point he kept repeating the line "i love teachers." finally the moderator had to interject with "i think we all love teachers."

So many people in awe of the iPad mini for $329.99, yet they could get an Apple-certified refurbished iPad3 for 379.99? I don't get it- the latter is a much better value.

I think Apple could have dominated the tablet market with the mini if they kept the price point under $300. $329 still gives reason to pause and consider a cheaper product.

Since reading this, I've had 'Peace Sells' stuck in my head ... "Whaddaya mean I'm not kind? I'm just not your kind" ... "Whaddaya mean I couldn't be President of the United States of America? It's still we the people, right?"

So, um, thanks for that

I am so enamored with this girl I met through work.

So I am the volunteer coordinator for a large charity in my city with over a dozen sites. I interview, recruit, place, follow-up, etc...with all the volunteers at the different places.

This one girl I met. Man.....I can't stop thinking about her. And I ran into her today when I was doing a site visit.

My employee handbook has no rules about dating in the workplace (in fact, one site manager got her job when she was dating another site manager). After being placed, the volunteers really just answer to their site manager, and my only dealings with them are follow-up questionnaires and things regarding their service time. Technically, I think they fall under me because I am the "Volunteer Coordinator" and they are "Volunteers."

Basically, I feel like I wouldn't get in trouble for asking her out since there is that whole other dating thing within the organization. However, that was going on pre-job. And, I would really hate to do anything that would reflect poorly on my organization. Like, I care about the place and see it making a real difference in our community.

What do you all think? Bite my tongue and not risk hurting the organization?

Or be bold and try to woo this lady?

I was....it is a long story. I got offered a job, but had to turn it down for some family stuff (which ended up actually resolving itself right after the job was given to someone else). Sad times for me

But, this volunteer coordinator position is only until next summer. I will either start a Master's program here in the midwest or just randomly move to the Bay Area probably. I like it out there.

sorry to hear about your first go round with the bay. if you make it out here again, first beer is on me.

go for this girl. the do-gooder types are one of a kind. my former roommate worked at a prominent housing non-profit, i made a play for her and it worked out for a good long while before turning into a ****-storm that had me losing everything. it was still worth it.

What a miserable (yet oddly fun) series of days...now all I have to do is pack, get 3 hours of sleep, drive myself to LAX and I'm in Portland by noon to be with people I know. I like people I know.

Nice. I am hoping to make it out there again before too long.

Anyway, I decided that I didn't think I'd get in trouble, but I didn't want to risk damaging my charity's reputation in any way. So, instead I asked out this really sweet and cute enough hippie girl at the local organic foods place

All's well that ends well.
