work: that trainer needs re-training

A while back, I said/decided/whatever that I wasn’t going to write about work. Mostly because… it’s work, but also that I am way too easy to find on the internet. However, if you recognize yourself as one of the people...


queer: “that way”

Had an interesting experience in the cafeteria yesterday morning. I’d already brought in my breakfast, but accompanied a co-worker to get her morning nosh. Nothing out of the ordinary for my office routine. The only thing that usually changes is...

in DC: gorgeous day for an evacuation

So that was my afternoon from about lunchtime until a few minutes ago. How was yours? Betsy and I took off to Five Guys for lunch and on our way back we saw police cars, ambulances and fire trucks in...
