Lunch and Happily After

So today I got to have lunch with my boss, Mandy, and a few of her coworkers that are very into math, as I am. One has a major in mathematics, while the other has a degree in statistics. It was interesting to get to hear new perspectives on things INTERalliance has drilled into my brain. They were also quite personable, so it was fun. One brought her little sun, and he was a riot. He hit the gong with such force, everyone in the restaurant jumped. He also got to play with the large cooking tools that the cooks use to cook, flip, and entertain a crowd with. When I was walking back to my car to go to work, I was offered some tea sample. Never had those handed to me on the street, but man were they tasty. I’ll have to go back when I return to The Greene.

Also, last night my dad finally tried my current favorite game, Garry’s Mod. I’ve been trying to get him to play forever, making deals that I’ll play his new games if he just tries this one. It never worked until I bought it for him along with Terraria, insisting that he really should play. Last night he had a free half an hour to play with me and I insisted it be used for Garry’s Mod, instead of Diablo which is where he spends all of his free time. He got used to everything pretty quick. Good chance even quicker than I did. When I first played two and a half years ago, it was kind of frustrating and took me a few days to enjoy it a lot. He seemed to like it, though. But I did throw him in a Skype call with me and 4 I think of my other friends. So it was definitely overwhelming. I hope he plays again sometime.

Song of the Day: When I’m Alone by Lissie

Playlist of the Day: Turntable: Indie While You Work

Well, it’ll be a smaller post today. I don’t have much to elaborate on. Lots of stuff coming up though, with school beginning soon. Oh, yesterday Sydney did come over to drop off a necklace and show me her car. Though she brought her boyfriend. Even though I met him two years ago, he’s still immensely awkward and not easy to talk to. Then again, I’m not the best at talking to someone that their first language isn’t English. None of the friends Sydney and I share can really easily talk to him. But oh well, as long as he makes her happy.

P.s. I don’t like Windows 8, I’d recommend never even trying it, it will frustrate the bejesus out of most.

strawberry

Got slightly bored for a minute, so here’s what happened. Last (last?) night I was eating strawberries, so I made it my steam name for a short while. Figured I’d make an avatar if I eat strawberries again(: (link: http://imgur.com/pbvIPYV) (and the original shape I stole: http://xa.yimg.com/kq/groups/81734415/sn/1710271234/name/10768383-strawberry-cartoon-isolated-over-white-background-vector.jpg

Today I decided to work a full day of work since yesterday I found out that I can only work Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday. And why is that? Well Independence Day is Thursday! I completely forgot. And Friday it’s basically the weekend following the holiday, and no one will be in the office anyways. Pretty much all day I’ve been listening to this one Grooveshark radio. I didn’t know that it had the capability to listen to people’s own broadcast (such as Turntable) until yesterday. The host goes by Migmagnific. That’s where I derived my post title from, and you should definitely go listen to it if you’re into old and new rock, blues, etcetera. This is a weird/funny video short that he linked in the chat a few hours ago of a Lion King alternative ending. Just been working on Dayton Analytics templates, R graphing, and backing up everything on an external hard drive.

I also want to have like, a Song of the Day sort of thing and I feel that linking videos looks slightly messy, so I’ll let you clink on the link if you so choose. Today’s is Drift Away by the Doobie Brothers.  Honorable mentions: Men’s Needs by The Crib,  Still Counting by Volbeat, Mama by Coconut Records, Bitter Sweet Symphony by The Verve.

The style of my blog is still a work in progress, too. Trying to find a way to get a GIF I made to be the background or at least the header. Interested in seeing an interesting analysis on dialects in the United States? Well, probably not with how I worded it, but I definitely think you should check it out. For one map, it highlights which regions of the US say coke vs. pop vs. soda. Mandy ran by it and showed it to me last time we were both in the office.

Well, at this precise moment, it is 3:31 PM, an hour and a half until I get off work to meet my grandma at home! Since the dramatic move of hers, I haven’t seen her since. She’s coming over for dinner tonight. Boy I really hope we have noodles again…I had them for dinner last night and for lunch today at work, and I still want more! And today at work, Derek brought me a banana questionable shake when he was out getting lunch 😀 Pretty rad of him. So far that’s really all that has happened today. Happy July 2nd!
