    My boss is MIA again.

    I need to execute a $300 contract, fiscal won't let me. They will let me sign $50,000 payment requests though. Make sense?

    So you're saying that you feel: Superior, Ethical, and yet Confused and Vulnerable? You're perfect.

    It actually was pretty good - the scenarios were a little more real; however city oriented and not town, but the end is the same - but yeah, my brain got fried which is a little sad

    Have you heard of the Bananas & Sprite Challenge?
    See if you can eat 2 bananas and then drink 1 litre of Sprite...without having it come back up.

    I figured a fellow Cyburbian had to be there too! It's great to shut your door and turn up the volume and file stuff while listening then quick vote on a poll but I have gotten pretty pathetic lol

    Field time is limited today. I helped with a file review for an hour, which included my teaching the citizen how to read contours. Next was a meeting to plan a training session. Considering that it's 16 degress out, I've still had too much time indoors today.

    I had to do a 90-minute online training for work about "defensive driving". I learned that the part of the headrest that sticks out toward your head is supposed to align with your ears, not your neck. Also I learned that to prevent carjacking, I am supposed to avoid the curbside lane in "high crime areas." And if a potential carjacker tries to trick me by "accidentally" hitting my rear bumper, I'm not supposed to get out of the car; instead, I have to somehow get them to follow me to the nearest gas station or police station. Next I think I will eligible for the training on "paranoid driving."
