Done. Finished. That’s all she wrote. Yesterday was my last day at the university.

Sometime before I left, I started thinking about what, if anything, I wanted to leave on my whiteboard. The obvious came to mind: “So long and thanks for all the fish.” But that’s a little too obvious. My next thought was to crib a few lines from Jonathan Coulton:

I fear nothing


See you all in hell

But I figured that wouldn’t be appreciated. Instead, I focused on finishing up some last minute projects and before I knew it, I had to leave to run an errand before the farewell party. I left the hard drive wipers erasing my laptop and desktop, grabbed my keys, procurement card, parking pass, prox card and id card.  All of which I left with the finance and administrative folks. When the door closed behind me, I knew that I couldn’t get back in the building and that the lightness I felt came from more than the lack of a laptop in my bag.

It really didn’t matter what I put on the whiteboard – I’m done.

p.s. to everyone that could make it to the party, Thanks! it was great. to those that couldn’t, i’m sorry i missed you. folks can email me at <my last name> (at) fenris (dot) org or at <first>.<last> (at) gmail (dot) com.

There is no halftime break! The vagaries of clock management mean Packers Lions remains in the second quarter while other games start the second half. The morning just became a little more beautiful. But that matters little when it’s raining outside, making me feel less guilty about spending seven hours on the couch.Men long to have peace in the home. We hate it when there is tension on any level. Men will do whatever it takes to have peace. They will admit wrong doing, even if they don’t believe it. Often, they will say, ‘I’m sorry’, just to smooth things over. However, there is a better and more permanent way to peace in the home, and that is meeting your wife’s emotional needs. She has an emotional tank that must be filled. Many women are running on nfl jerseys cheap empty, and are desperate to be satisfied. Husbands, it is our job to fill that tank and bring fulfillment to our wives.CBS scored huge ratings for its inaugural “Thursday Night Football” broadcast of the Baltimore Ravens versus the Pittsburgh Steelers amid the Ray Rice controversy. The game attracted an average of 20.8 million viewers to CBS and the NFL Network, nearly double the audience the Thursday game had on the Baratas Ray Ban same week last year, when NFL Network was the only broadcaster.Light, small metal frame: Most of the time a good, inexpensive mountain bike will have a lighter frame, made out of chromoly, aluminum or steel. They have to be light because mountain bike gear is heavy and there’s a lot of it. The frame itself will usually be built to flex with shock compression. They resist dirt buildup and stop better in messy conditions. At this price range they will usually be mechanical, rather than hydraulic.Well, give me a moment to explain the utter insanity of this system. First of all, there are a lot of fucking things that can happen to a person (see: Modified Dildo Accidents). Right now, we wholesale jerseys use a list of codes called ICD 9 (International Statistical Classification of Diseases, Volume 9). That little beauty contains roughly 15,000 codes. And if you think that surely covers every possible scenario a human body can encounter in the natural universe, well, the government disagrees. They’re about to unleash ICD 10, and for my profession, it’s Y2K (look it up, kids) and all the bad parts of the Rapture blended together and then spiked with a shot of Mayan Apocalypse. You see, ICD 10 has roughly 155,000 codes. There’s a code for everything, and I mean everything. Examples:Quite simply, the Lions of the last 50 years possess the worst winning percentage the NFL has wholesale football jerseys ever seen, boasting only 16 winning seasons (most of which can be barely considered as such) out of the last 50. Your stoner buddy currently sleeping on your sofa can claim more successes than the Lions franchise at this point.
