Okay, so I got to sit down and review a bunch of job applications today. The pool I have to pull from is, shall we say, less than what I'd like to call a tier 3 guard. I had a small brainstorm to go to the Department of Vets Affairs and see if I could get ahold of someone who might do employment services and see if I could put the word out that I'm hiring professionals here.

Short form, VA is about as much help in this as usual. That is to say, NONE. I found no way for employers to put the word out to vets to come apply.

So, I'm putting this one out there, and making it public for other posters/LJers.

Does anyone know a good vet site to post to to help some good vets and eager employers together?

Hey dingbat. Write a story about the building of your dreams, include hardships entailed, but Do Not make it the Dark Knight where it's a Pyric victory..

Perhaps the start of the business described in Duckets. Oh, yea,... Invent Something!

Of course I had to see this, it was a Disney Pixar flick. :) I blame my wife. She wants to pinch Wall E's cheeks. She thinks he's cute.
And I tend to agree with her, and disagree with a lot of other critics... )

I was happy with the film. And like my wife, I want to pinch Wall E's cheeks and thank him. Good job Pixar. Good job.

My overall review is simply as follows: Download this movie if you want to see it, but don't spend money on it. It falls firmly into the category of films that Will Smith has starred in where he was the ONLY GOOD thing about the movie.

I'll give you the Tagg Condensed Version here:Cut For Spoilers, you have been officially warned.. )

Let's speak hypothetically. You have a person who goes through an abusive and traumatic experience, survives it, and over time heals from it, and is then dropped into what they KNOW is EXACTLY the same situation as before, how would you think this person is going to react?

And for shits and giggles: You're a psychiatrist, and your patient tells you that you can ask them One question and they'd answer totally honestly, but on the condition that they wouldn't answer any other questions, what would you ask them??


And for the last bit of oddity, this is a public post. Pass along to friends if you feel the need/want to make things interesting.

Okay, so last night I also got to see the premier of The Dresden Files. Mind you, I've been a Jim Butcher fan for a while now, and had a bit of apprehension when it came to Sci Fi basically screwing up a perfectly good series... They happen to do this to just about everything that came originally from a book as far as I can tell. Dune was about the only exception and even that was different from the book. We won't even discuss Earthsea.... This is mostly because I didn't see it, but only heard about the horrors.

The main problem, as near as I can tell, is that Sci Fi is owned by USA.... Read "Lowest Common Denominator CRAP".. USA execs are usually the driving force for me Not watching TV. Canned Farscape... Didn't pick up Firefly (though that's probably a Good thing...) And lets not forget the royal screw around that JMS had to go through with 'em. Were they renewing Crusade or not?? Hard to tell at the time. So, when it came down to the Dresden Files, I tried to keep an open mind, even despite the early news that things were not always according to the way Butcher writes....
Book and Series spoilers.. For those of you that haven't read things yet.. )

And despite all that, if you took Butcher out of it.. If you've Never read the books, nor had the expectations, it might be and okay low budget show. I'd say about the lines of Dr. Who.

Now then, as for BSG.... *sighs* Okay, story arc is a good concept, but I'm getting rather tired of Starbuck whining, playing the woman who wants it all, in her crotch, make it vibrate, and NOW kplzthnks... I'm tired of watching Apollo be this wishy washy dick thinking idiot who doesn't realize what a good thing he has.. I really want to see another boxing ep where Adama gets in the ring and beats enough sense into Lee that he doesn't loose his marriage. I want Sharon to kick Roslin's ass for what she did. I'm talking this show needs Springer.. And chairs.. And get it out of their system.. Then they can go about leaving the angst to the Cylons..

However, I'm learning one good moral from BSG.. Man should not try to create life without first ridding himself of The Dramaz, their kids and creations will inherit it.

Last night was the sorta night where EVERYTHING happened. Managers, staff, and just about everyone off duty for my company decided to show up on my site.. Why, you ask?? Well, it could possibly be to see the car that they sent out to me the night before with what turned out to be a cracked intake manifold, that leaked coolant like a sieve. It could be because they were bored.. I don't know, I don't care, they weren't there to help any, I can tell you that. It was also the day that I had a transient in the site shopping with his personal baggage in the cart (and if that doesn't scream "I'm here to shoplift" I don't personally know what does..). And to top it all off, I got the Skater Rebellion out there.

This, in my industry, is about the most annoying subculture a guy can run into. These guys seem to get off on giving ANY authority figure a hard time. It's a game. One of the game the local chapter likes to play is "Stone the Security Guard." No, I'm not kidding, it's been done to me twice now. No hits on me personally, but the cruiser I'm driving has taken some hits. Well, last night, after once again kicking the kids off the property for skating/trick riding (something they've been asked nicely about, something they've been TOLD about, something they've been WARNED about, and something they get a kick out of doing..). And while I lament in my cruiser about how Old I'm feeling wondering where respect and things like it went (and gods yes, some days on this job I feel like a fuddy duddy wondering where respect for the law went and muttering odd terms like "whippersnapper" to myself...). And in the middle of what feels like big brother doing an appraisal of me, I get pretty much an almost two page day (in security parlance, one can tell how bad a day is by the amount of paperwork needed to document it properly, a one page day is normal.. I've had an 8 page day.. ).

So, at about 8 or so, I'm pretty much wiped for the day, wanting nothing more than to go home and curl up around Gryph and call a bad day a bad day. Then I get a "THUMP" on the car, and I know the Rebellion is back and throwing rocks again and brandishing a bit of bravado.. *sighs and rolls eyes and wishes for tasers or tranks for the morons* And here I feel old wondering where good old fashioned corporal punishment went, I glance up into the rear view mirror to see to heads duck back behind the recycling trailer in the parking lot.. Well, okay, guys, even cops and security guards have bad days.. Even saints get grumbly on occasion, and I was feeling the kind of frustration that comes with clenched fists... And in my moment of utter idiocy, I circled around quickly, looking for the two, grabbing my camera. I don't see them as I'm circling, so I park the car and get out. No, it's not the best tactical decision I can make, but I've HAD it with the antics at this point in the day.

I circle the trailer on foot, and I'm glad I did, because I actually discovered my assailants have been even more idiotic than I imagine them.. They decided that being clever meant hiding from me wedged in between the trailers of the recycling center.. Um, here's your sign.. And in a gloating moment, I can say that good will win because evil is just plain stupid on occasion.. My assailants, brave enough to throw rocks when they think I'm not looking get kinda bashful when I tell him to look at me.. Why do you want to cover your face?? Hrm?? Aw, come on.. Be man enough to look me in the eye or shave that pitiful excuse for a mustache off...

Well, these two say that they're coming out, they didn't do anything, the usual "Oh Crap, I'm Busted!" routine.. And when the first one gets even partially out, he's off and running.. A sprinter.. Well, at the moment my brain goes "Oh don't you even DARE run" and I'm hot on his heels.. And then my thirty something body rings up to my righteous indignation and says "Um, hey, yea, about this running stuff... I'm glad you're working off steam, but you, um, how to put this nicely, haven't run in ten years.. Biking doesn't cut it.. and you're now out of gas, have a nice day...." So my raptorial sprinting stoop pooped out and I let this idiot get away, but not before getting off one last shot.. And the kid thinks I've got him on camera, so methinks I won't see them around for a while yet.

That thought is thus:

There are only two things that you get in life; that which you work for, and that which you pay for.
seabhacson: (Default)
DESIDERATA

Go placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others; even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career however humble; it is areal possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism

Be yourself.Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.

You are a child ofthe universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy. Speak your love.. Speak it again.. Speak it yet again.

Okay, guys, it's on.. My loving boss just sent me something that smacks of my aforementioned but underused "Save The Whales" or "Fuzzbutt" mailing list..

But I don't have much to retaliate with anymore...

So, as MBear would say "I don't care what's wrong with the world, so long as it ends up in my inbox." I want a few things to lovingly send back.. :P

Why is it whenever I get something that makes me laugh up a lung, it comes from Wes?? O.o Still, if laughter is the best medicine, I'm surprised Wes hasn't cured cancer by now.

Put down your drinks and make sure you're strapped into your chair.. You have been warned.. :)

Lord and Lady, detach me for a moment in time. Let me be free of thought and feeling. Let me know no mind. Let me be purpose. Let me judge without mercy or malice. Let me strike true if it's needed. I give myself as an instrument of will. Give me the responsibility of giving and taking life again. Give me back Kyoko. Give me back my burden. Wish me luck and grace.

I'm stepping in.

You should sometimes look to the mirror of your own soul,
Shed your skin, dare your shadow, and follow Faol,

You should see what your life could be on down the road,
Learn, perhaps, from your future mistakes before they bring you woe,

Life has given unto birds the precious gift of sight,
That we might see the day at the end of the long night,

But sight is a two edged sword, and it does cut deep,
For sometimes it's our own horrors that we are forced to see.

Sometimes pain, sometimes grief, sometimes in great supply,
Sometimes it's a blessing, after all that, to watch yourself die,

Sometimes, on rare instance, you get a hint of glorious bliss,
Picks you up again, urges you to strive with its tempting kiss.

But there are times, if you're wise, that you walk with your shadow,
You learn from your pain, which path you should not follow,

You learn of your choice, to what ends it leads you,
Choose wisely, and to thyself it is wise to be true..
