Office Drone Day

Our friend, Len, came up with the idea for an "Office Drone Day" some time ago. The premise is that people would meet up at noon on a set day wearing trousers, short sleeve dress shirts, and ties. Once gathered, the crew would then head somewhere for lunch. The key thing here is that the initial group of fellows involved in this gathering don't have to wear traditional office drone outfits to work. Jeans are quite commonplace. Nonetheless, the idea was put into action today. It was a small group that gathered for the first office "Office Drone Day." I helped encourage the mood handing out copies of the new cover sheets we needed to attach to our TPS reports:

Matt joined us at The Pub a little bit later. He appeared confused by the new procedure with the reports but seemed ready to comply:

We hope, with Len's leadership, to make this a monthly ritual, alternating the places we choose to eat lunch.

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls, Ontario look rinky dinky. Holy cow. Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg is no joke. Tomorrow we try to escape it and find some peace and nature in the (literally) Smoky Mountains.

A couple of years ago, I took the month of February off from Facebook under the premise that the time I wasn't wasting on Facebook could be channeled into other things. I blogged quite a bit, I read a few books, got out a little, and generally tried to avoid looking at anything on there. It wasn't perfect, by far. A fair amount of friends still use Facebook to communicate about social events and general happenings, so I was out of the loop on all of that, thus defeating part of my goal to be in better touch with hanging out with them. Weird how that shit works.
Ultimately, I think I want more conversation. The introvert in me loves social media because it allows me form a complete thought and reply to wha…

[UPDATED VERSION!] The Trouble With The Electoral College

In light of this week's Presidential election, here's an update on why the Electoral College is awful. Watch the original video after this short update:

[UPDATE] The YouTuber went back and did ANOTHER update to correct himself on some issues. It's also worth watching especially because one part of it reminded me of the awful governing situation we have in New York State that is referred to as "3 men in a room."
