TTCMA v 3.0

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

We did, but broke it when trying to revive 1.0, so had to kill both and start 3.0

Oh, Ben Crystal. His dad's a real character as well. I've done OP before and conducted workshops in it. I'm not nearly as enamored of it as Ben Crystal is. I can do OP but I don't think it's all that important to making Shakespeare more "relevant" or "accessible". I usually end up doing Shakespeare in a conspicuously American accent that British people say sounds very American and American people say sounds too British.

Had made plans with neighbor guy and his wife to grill steaks and have a wee drop of bourbon yesterday.

I popped over at about 4:40 to see what time for the beginning of the charred mammal flesh fiesta.

Oh. We didn't think we were on. Wife is at work and IT guy was doing, whatever he does. He offered to fry up some hamburgers with vodka.

um. wut?

Fried? We both have grills. I hate vodka.

I grilled my rib eye and smoked it with JD whiskey barrel chips.

My most excellent, yet spiteful, scent of superior grilling filled the block.

We rescheduled for Wednesday, where I said I'd have some chicken ready to go.

I had to replace the lock and latch on the back door today. After stripping out a couple of screws because of something I overlooked in the instructions (okay, I'll admit, I didn't actually look at the instructions more than a few seconds), I finally got everything installed....

...and then discovered that the keys weren't included in the box. So now I have a nice new door lock and latch that I can't unlock from the outside. I have to go back to the store now and try to get an exchange.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

Why does a 6 figure job only require a resume and a cover letter while a minimum wage job requires a multiple page application and a stupis a** behavioral assessment?

I'm going to assume you've not had or applied for a six figure job lately. I haven't either, but I know a little about how it goes. Background checks, court records, thorough licensure screenings, review of your last twenty years of work, income tax records from the same period, review of you social media presences and web postings. Oh no, ample professional skills will get you a second look, but it goes well beyond that to get an offer these days. You remember the screening process' for the last few Supreme Court nominees? That stuff goes on a thousand times every day for regular Joe's looking for high dollar positions. There are companies that specialize in such screenings, and they aren't all that nice when compiling their reports. It's merciless. Over the last few years we've - unfortunately - seen a lot of folks fired over a single comment that's been recorded or posted on the web. Employers are very diligent in trying to weed out anyone who's ever been the least bit offensive in public. And that's what CMA. Hell, I'd be lucky to get a job digging ditches if the Ditch Digging Corporation was to review my posts on CPS.

EDIT: Forgive the mini 'rant'. Mrs FredS is currently undergoing such screening (though not for a six figure income) and it's ridiculous. One 'discrepancy' they found is that she's still listed as staff at a university she taught at eight years ago, but she didn't list as a current employer. That's easy enough to explain away - remember the tax records? - but still, it gives some idea of how deep they dig.

It's funny that lawyers have convinced others to go through that, as we don't do it so much amongst ourselves. As long as you were good at bringing in clients and good at winning cases, you could be a fellow that sat at home most nights looking for things to get indignant about and most weekends creepily watching kids fish but still rather readily find a job.

I've thoroughly had enough of my certain aspects of my profession but remain quite glad I don't work in business or finance. Those people eat each other without qualm. Criminal Defense is, paradoxically, a rather genteel profession.

I often peek on CPS from my "phone." I rarely talk to anyone on this "phone." But that's a rant for a different day.

Tonight, as I peeked and posted via said "phone." The tap a talk app add appeared at the top of every CPS window I landed on.
