- I sincerely, deeply despise the website for the Worldwide Association of Registered Pseudologists (my primary professional organization). It takes fifteen fucking minutes just to log in, because the website is that poorly designed. For this I have to pay $150 dues each year? I guess it's something to know that our annual fees support the very worst web programming money can buy.
- Also, making us register and pre-pay the registration fee for the annual conference just to submit an abstract? Tacky, WARP. You are fucking tacky pieces of crap. I bet the officers on the executive board insist on cash bars at their house parties, too. WTFever.
- Part of my irritation with this stuff is that I had to hurry up and
do it at the last minutetake the opportunity to get it over with while I'm on vacation. I decided to take a few days off to relax and enjoy myself in Vacation City, another locale in Research Country. It's on the ocean, and there are tons of fresh seafood all around, and the weather is beautiful. I find something tonic in being close to the sea. It makes me happy just to walk down the street and see the blue-green expanse along one side.
- Know what else makes me happy? Seeing total jerks getting what they deserve. The former authoritarian leader of RC, recently relieved of his position, has now been 'detained' for questioning. It's not possible to use such delicate language for his sons, though: they've both been imprisoned during the corresponding investigation into their dirty business. How about a round from the Singin' Brakeman for them poor fellas locked up in the hoosegow??
