Good thing I went to bed. I don’t wanna talk about it.

What’s on tap?

Oh my god I was just told by a professor that an $81/person limit (which would include tax and tip) for taking someone out to dinner may not be enough.

DrHandgrenaid
Editor

How many profs are trying to gank a free meal out of this process?

Miss Muse
Editor

Just 2, but THEN I was handed a receipt for another dinner where they managed to spend (including tax and tip) about $100/person (for 4 people, not 5…we made a budget for 5 people, and one didn\’t show up and they STILL managed to go over) so I just don\’t know anymore, I\’m moving to New Zealand to raise sheep.

So, obviously your professors don’t know how to math. They also don’t know how to respect limits. Just because you’re reimbursed for dinner doesn’t mean you have to order absolutely anything you want.

I hate it when people think they’re above rules. Then again, if the rules were enforced and said professors had to reimburse overages out of pocket, then you might see change.

Miss Muse

There are so many political…things going on between faculty & staff and between the different subfields. So basically what will happen is we send along a note saying “Yes sorry, we won’t do it again. For real this time” And I just realized I need to fill out another form cause a Dean of the College was one of the guests.

You poor thing. People are shitty.

DrHandgrenaid
Editor

I think you may find there is even less hockey in New Zealand than LA.

More Hobbits tho.

Miss Muse
Editor

Sheep are fine eating…grass or whatever else they are offered. They would probably not eat $100 for dinner, unless maybe you’re meaning literally.

So Ehrhoff on waivers and twitter at least appears to have maintained its sanity. The Phaneuf trade must’ve broke its brain.

Anyway, I don’t think Ehrhoff is an impact player at this point in his career at all. Those concussions during his disaster season with the Pens seem to have really hurt his game. That said, in the unlikely event he makes it all the way through the waiver order to the Bruins (he won’t), they almost certainly should claim him because if Sweeney isn’t luring Killer into a crate to ship to Abu Dhabi, he isn’t doing it right.

Anyway, busy morning. Meetings with Dept of Energy folks, a ‘Safety Culture kickoff event’ which was some dumb shit but involved free (crappy) pizza. So yeah. Howeealldoin?

Ehrhoff certainly isn’t an exciting addition at this point, but it’s still an addition we should make if we’re able.

That Safety event sounds LOVELY!

Satan 81's Sister

I hope they did the Safety Dance.

DrHandgrenaid

One of the videos was some motivational speaker juggling and doing handstands and backflips. I think. I’m pretty sure I was busy having a stroke, so I can’t be sure

phonymahoney
Editor

Uhhh?

Satan 81's Sister
Editor

What. The. Fuck?

DrHandgrenaid
Editor

This sums it up pretty well

Miss Muse
Editor

Ugh, you guys I only made barely $500 from captioning and claiming that income is just really a very complicated process cause I got paid through PayPal and I’m surprised I’m being taxed so much on it. Not fun.

Satan 81's Sister
Editor

Ooof. Also, I just checked Twitter and The Purge is trending. Random.

Miss Muse
Editor

The Purge 3 is coming out apparently, and THIS TIME, a bunch of Anti-Purge government people and citizens are going to use that night to overthrow the government officials who are Pro-Purge. Or something.

Satan 81's Sister
Editor

I didn’t even realize there was a second purging. Wait, so the anti-purgers are going to purge the pro-purgers?

Miss Muse
Editor

Oh, yeah: ANARCHY!

As for The Purge 3: well, how else are you going to get The Purge to stop in under 2 hours? wink

You know, I guess I didn\’t have a real strong opinion of his most recent work, but hearing that Ethan Hawke who spent a good deal of time trying to convince everyone he was not just an actor, but an Artist starred in the first one really disappointed me.

Satan 81's Sister
Editor

You’re knowledge of The Purge kind of scares me. I think you are secretly pro-purge.

Miss Muse
Editor

I’m really intrigued by movies and books that depict a dystopian environment but the whole idea behind this, that a 12 hour long shift with no rules helps prevent crime and violence from occurring the other 364.5 days of a year is really ludicrous.

Trump won the primary. I expect this to happen next.

phonymahoney
Editor

I expect disaster of biblical proportions.

Satan 81's Sister
Editor

I thought it was at least 1:00. Now I’m all cranky and annoyed that it’s not.

Christian Ehrhoff on waivers

phonymahoney
Editor

I wouldn’t think twice about picking him up.

Miss Muse
Editor

Also I wonder if they waived him cause he didn’t score last night. razz

Satan 81's Sister
Editor

Huh. Certainly would be an uber cheap help but I doubt the Bruins even get a chance to claim him.

The Once and Future Bagel Bruin

Worth a shot

Satan 81's Sister
Editor

Hasn’t been great this season but neither has our defense.

Miss Muse
Editor

My coworker told me he didn’t ever remember a time where the Kings scored 9 goals after I told him I don’t remember the Bruins giving up that many in a long while but then he gave me an Oreo truffle his wife made for our office so I’m not going to hurt him. wink

the german hammer
Admin

I have never seen the Bruins lose that badly.

I want to know why they hate the home crowd.

phonymahoney
Editor

I went to a game against the Leafs where they lost something like 10-2.

Miss Muse
Editor

I suppose after awhile you just have to laugh about it…

Satan 81's Sister
Editor

Shit games happen.

Miss Muse
Editor

I remember being a kid and seeing them lose 10-4 to Buffalo but that was more than 20 years ago.

phonymahoney
Editor

I tried posting this but I think I screwed it up, so sorry not sorry if it’s a dupe.

I went to this shitshow of a game.

phonymahoney
Editor

Oops. Here’s the link. I guess that html code didn’t work.

I went to this game. http://www.foxsports.com/nhl/boxscore?id=17201 Last night was certainly not my first “losing by a billion goals” rodeo.

Satan 81's Sister

Happy Truck Day!

Miss Muse
Editor

Truck Day? Baseball?

Satan 81's Sister
Editor

Yup. Today is the day the equipment truck loads up and heads down to Florida for spring training.

Miss Muse
Editor

Well that’s cool! Spring training is two months away?

Satan 81's Sister
Editor

Regular season is two months away.

Satan 81's Sister
Editor

Pitchers and catchers have to be there by the 19th. Position players by the 24th (this month) A bunch are already there.

Satan 81's Sister

I had a dream last night that Hammer and Carvin were plotting to murder all of us. Please don’t do that. It’s not nice.

the german hammer
Admin

Well, I hadn’t really started the planning process, but I would agree that I am likely the murderer here. In the library with a lead pipe!

phonymahoney
Editor

I always Recch Clue

phonymahoney

Miss Muse
Editor

Also, I keep reading this sentence as Hammer and CARON were plotting to murder all of us…

Satan 81's Sister
Editor

It was the last time anyone ever called him a horse.

Miss Muse
Editor

Many of us weren’t exactly kind to him when he was a Bruin….

the german hammer
Admin

Had he played better, we would have been nicer. Then again, he’s really good at AHLing, not NHLing.

carvinbass18
Editor

I wouldn’t murder all of you

the german hammer
Admin

Just some of us. And never me because I’ve got eyes on all of you!

phonymahoney
Editor

Just a few?

Satan 81's Sister
Editor

Actually I think we all are getting murdered. Carvin is murdering Team Not Pooh and Hammer is murdering Team Pooh. Then they will murder each other.

phonymahoney
Editor

I’m murdering Team Our Current Thirds Are Great. Can I do that?

Satan 81's Sister
Editor

Hahaha! They look like they were made from a “make your own jersey kit.” It’s easy! Just iron on the patch!

phonymahoney
Editor

Miss Muse
Editor

Not all of us, huh?

Satan 81's Sister
Editor

Sadly we won’t know who lives and who gets murdered till the murder part happens.

Satan 81's Sister
Editor

It will be like that movie where crime is legal for one night a year. Don’t remember the name of it.

It’s election year in this trailer for #ThePurge3: https://t.co/eCGBDaxxY2 pic.twitter.com/NaxW8a61CZ

The Purge. THREE.

Miss Muse
Editor

Oh! The Purge! Did you see that?

Satan 81's Sister
Editor

The Purge, thank you! Bits and pieces. I like the Rick and Morty episode based on The Purge.

Satan 81's Sister
Editor

Well that’s nice of you.
