    Don't like it together. More a cuddly, love you all vibe than a let's get it on one. Maybe I never tried hard enough but I thought that was a common thing.

    Molly is a great drug to have sex on.

    Awoke this morning (noon) to a bulldog statue at the foot of my bed. Seems like last night my friends and I may or may not have thought it was funny to steal the prized mascot of a local footy club. A heist we may or may not have left evidence pointing towards their hated rival team from the other side of town. 7D860276-5E58-461A-AAA5-EB4F21DFE481.jpeg

    Read approx. 400,000 words in 24hrs. Looking back, it all seems like a dream.

    Last time I've had sex on molly, I had the brilliant idea of dropping some ephedrine pills beforehand. I don't really understand how I am still alive, but I remember feeling like a raging buffalo spitting napalm and love.

    I'm genuinely trying to figure out how you got that visual in your head. Just stick with shrooms, they've always seemed safer for having a good time.

    Unless you have them on a farm with a swamp near by. Dont do them then, that shit was terrifying.

    You see, the first clue was that in the next day I felt like bullshit.

    Colleague completely (potentially wilfully) misinterpreted my ‘this idea won’t fix the problem because it’s not deliverable’ as ‘why bother fixing the problem’ and then told my boss’ boss that my team were hostile and unhelpful re: the task she gave us.

    I spent most of today buying time to come up with a plan/calm down. Tomorrow I get to sort this shit out. Depending on how much I calm down overnight this will either start with a frank discussion of ‘just because your pet idea is shit and undeliverable does not mean you get to bad mouth me to my boss’s boss for trying my hardest to kill it’ or ‘let’s get some extra members in this working group and work collaboratively to find a solution that works for everyone, including the people who will have to deliver it’.

    That's infuriating. On the other hand, when it comes to light that she can't handle her idea being put down, her credibility is going to be shot. Nobody trusts the person who goes over everybody's heads unnecessarily.

    I don't think you should scramble to compromise or come up with a better idea - just prove your point. Prepare a bullet-point list of exactly why the idea can't work. Keep your cool when confronted - there's nothing more satisfying than shutting down this kind of bullshit immediately.

    The secret trick to dealing with recalcitrant PMs or shitty team leaders who send bullshit feedback is to be in the right.

    And also escalate to a director or VP in your reporting chain who'll shut that shit down as unprofessional in the extreme.

    Dude, I totally understand.

    Yesterday, I had to talk to my boss as she thought I was dropping the ball on some tasks (when in reality they wished for me to read their minds, and apparently I read them wrong).

    She told me: "If you aren't stressed out and don't have at least ten hours of work on your plate, you aren't trying hard enough."

    Yeah... Fuck that shit.

    Nobody gives a fuck about the volume of work you do. They just care about the emotional state the work puts you in. They demand 150% of your ability whether you're a high performer or a nasal-crayoned mouthbreather, which is why dumb fucks can get away with doing fuck all so long as they're sufficiently messy about it but a clear achievement of actual objectives goes unnoticed unless people see you struggling. Which rather defeats the point.

    #BUSINESS

    Corporate culture is the worst kind of poison.

    Other news: internet is up and running in my new house and I ordered a cheap skanky laptop for writing on since the old one is dead. May quite possibly do a FANFICTION sometime soon.

    My Clutch chair came in today. Been waiting pretty much the whole year for the black friday sale to happen since they were about $100 off. It's super comfortable. No regrets.

    So I decided to use the last of my bandwidth for the month of November to download Black Ops 4. Apparently even though I'm supposed to get 50 mbps download speed, it was only downloading at 7 mbps.

    I think I'll be trying to contact the ISP soon.

    A customer actually called me a jobsworth today. I didn't think that was something people actually said outside bad sitcoms from before I was born.

    TOMD: As of this week, I’m Nevermind, M.A., which is nice. Will have to wait for my final grade until my certificate arrives but, while not outstanding, it should still be pretty good.

    Certainly better than what my pessimistic self expected a year ago.

    Tripled my internet speed to 1.5gb down and saved $50 a month doing so. God bless hopping between ISP competitors.

    I'm jealous. There's one fiber line coming to where I live, so for high speed it's basically a monopoly.

    What does that mean? I can't tell if it's a combination of job and worthy or if a sworth is some kind of eldritch abomination and they were calling you a bad employee.
