At a previous company, I used the word "dogfooding" talking to an executive about utilizing the bleeding edge of our product in our own facilities.
"We don't say dogfooding, we say drinking our own champagne" he condescended, weeks before slashing our "champagne" budget and laying off 80% of the office
I guess I have changed since last time I was here. I haven't made music in years. I got out of writing code for a living. I don't play video games as much. I've been monogamous for a while, too. I spend more time alone. I got back into marksmanship sports, but for some reason I doubt Fediverse people are into that. So I'm not really sure how to make friends in this part of the Internet to match my current interests.
I run a few tabletop games, which might be a good lead. I also do more cooking?
the other day I went on a date with a woman from China who hasn’t been in the UK long and I asked where in China she’s from and she said it’s an area called Szechuan you probably don’t know it and I said oh like the sauce and she said yes how do you know about Szechuan sauce though and then I had to explain the fucking rick and morty thing and now I think she thinks coming to the West was a mistake
So uh, I've been in limbo about that position I interviewed for, for I don't know how long at this point, a month? I've been getting all my news informally and my sources assure me it's still in the pipe, in there, somewhere, and all my potential-futute coworkers vouch for me, but the organizational red tape seems endless and the silence is deafening. Please just get me an offer letter soon or tell me to stay put.
#introductions hey, it's me again. I'm a bisexual syncretic leftist in a bald middle-aged tech bro's body. I like transgressive art, music, and people to talk leftpol with. recommend me some people to follow.
