Can't think of another atomic joke right now and too lazy to resort to google, although there was that rumor that Oxygen and Magnesium are an item, I mean O-Mg!

Should we resort to just miserable meeces bar jokes then?

A grasshopper walks into a bar. The bartender looks up and says, "Hey, we've got a drink named after you!" The grasshopper replies, "Really? You have a drink named Clarence?"

Ooookay... lol... um... see where it says "miserable meeces" in the above post? Yeah... I typed "L A M E" (only lowercase and not spaced out) and it was changed by some mysterious Woot force...

I'm laughing way too hard at that right now... (especially since it did it again when I previewed it).

(not a joke, just a life update) My boss, my coworkers, pretty much everyone in the office has contacted me personally this week to make sure that I got the application for my promotion in which closes tonight. Since they are the hiring committee and have only known me a couple months, it's making me feel pretty awesome. Oh yeah, I'm using them all as references HR requires the job to be open to the public for two weeks in case there is someone better out there, even though it's a promotion (change of hours, benefits, and pay rate).

Thanks both! It's really different for me. I've had so many jobs where it was mostly me and it wasn't such a team dynamic. I enjoyed them and some of them were really great, but this is sooo different.

The job officially closes in 2 hours. I'm not actually working this week. I had an excess of hours after the tournaments in January and February so I'm taking "spring break" off. So they could either call me tomorrow, or wait till I get to the office on Monday. There may be some other issues with HR too. They have to "forward" my application to my department for review. I'm not sure how long that takes. When I was initially hired for my current job it took 2 weeks for my paperwork to get approved so I had to submit my first two weeks of hours via paper through HR, it just depends on how busy HR is. Orc figures (he has experience with them more than I do) that it will probably be the first of April when I get all the paperwork, but they may start me at the new hours and wage before hand.

Ah, gotta love HR... I'm actually in government HR... I handle pretty much all personnel/payroll/benefit related matters for about 250 employees. The thing is, as the processor, I'm the last link in a long chain of approvals, so I can understand and sympathize with the waiting game for hires and promotions... fingers crossed for a quick turnaround on your approval paperwork!

I'm at a state University with the state branch of a federal program, 4-H, running a non-profit competition, FIRST. Oh yeah it's awesome, my office is full of LEGO and my boss walks in and says stuff like, "Hey, there's this open source micro-circuits stuff called Arduino and I'm thinking we can make some 4-H curriculum for it, want me to buy you some to play with?"

Happy Pi Day and Palindrome day, and Einstein's Birthday!

There is no playing in my office. If they catch you playing while on the clock, the first punishment is a smack on the hands with a ruler, the second is to stand in the corner with your nose to the wall and the third onward involves being put in the pit and occasionally sprayed with a hose.

...but you didn't hear that from me.

It's not playing around, that's what they are paying me to do! It's work!

Color me jealous then. I'm a paper pusher for a paycheck... but I'm not complaining (too much)... it's better than having no job at all!

I was worried I was getting you down with the awesomeness of my new job I didn't want to make you feel all, "man, my life choices suck." While I'm over here, "Whoohoo! I found the coolest job in the world, I'm so awesome!"

Because I am that awesome.
