Random non sequitur posts catch-all thread

Jealous of the ottoman/coffee tables. I will be getting me at least one when I make the move to Nashville.

I've got to start hanging out on Steam again, and get more 360 games. I don't think I've played any MP with GWJers in months.

My cat just tried to eat a votive candle.

I should probably stop cooking things I'm not supposed to be eating.

Whenever I leave my computer, my cat take my chair. I'm always saying "You're in my chair".

The thing is, she has a chair right next to mine...and it's a nicer chair

But your chair is so much warmer after you've sat in it!

Yep. I am headed back east in a few months, as soon as the house here sells, which goes on the market in 2 weeks.

I have lived in TN before, though never in Nashville, and I will be looking for a "get my foot in the door" position so I can utilize my A+ cert and work on my Net+ and Sec+ certs while working full-time.

I lived in Logan for six years growing up, and now live just near Nashville. Perhaps a S&T is in order!

I hope you say that in a transporter-accident-young-Picard accent.

Small world.

Yep, I do a S&T will be on the docket sometime later in 2013, most definitely.

You and me both, but it's all so tasty!

For cats, I firmly believe it is the fact that it is someone else's chair that makes it most appealing.

Since I decided to start using the nice chair he doesn't jump in my chair. He takes the old chair.

Of course this could just be cat randomness. Anyway, from where I sit, it's a win-win situation.

Yeah my male cat always takes my computer chair, despite him having several other chairs, blankets, pillows, a cat tree.

I chalk it up to a dominance thing. He usually pesters me to get me up and see what he's into, and then swoops in and takes my chair from me.

Rrrrrr, I hate hate hate being smart enough to figure out I'm not particularly intelligent, but not intelligent enough to actually be a smart guy >_<

Who needs brains when you got guns the size of a tree trunk?

Apart from Dublin, apparently Ireland doesn't have post codes.

What the heck is a four day weekend? I haven't had a holiday off in years unless it happens to fall on one of my usual days off. :p

Sat + Sun + Christmas Eve + Christmas, then 3 days in the office, followed by Sat + Sun + Personal Day + New Years Day, then another 3 days before my next weekend

Sounds like you just need a new line of work

I read the majority of A Song of Ice and Fire while on the can at work and now smelling the air freshener they use in there reminds me of Westeros.

Well they do use Wolfswood Pine scented.

I have to either give up my dream of owning a Lotus or my dream of continuing to sleep indoors and eat cooked food.

I'm thinking I could sleep in my car.

Probably not in a Lotus.

A friend has one, and the "trunk" can barely fit a backpack, and there's no back seat. We're not talking "Porsche back seat" that's only good for small children and pets, we're talking about an inch of space between the seats and the firewall.

But I did love the couple of hotlaps I got around New Hampshire International Motor Speedway's road course is a race-prepped Lotus Exige

I just answered an "out of area" phone call and had the following conversation:

Me: Hello?
Heavily-accented voice: Hello, ma'am! I'm calling about your Windows computer!
Me: Oh, I've heard about this scam! How exciting -- this is the one where you tell me my computer has viruses and I need to pay lots of money to fix it, right?
HAV: brief silence, (click)

In retrospect, maybe I should have strung the guy along for a while instead.

I was answering a survey that was asking how many PCs I personally own. I checked 0 since I don't own one personally (work PC running Linux, a Raspberry Pi and some iOS).

The estimated 20 minute survey was over in under 2 minutes
