Heh... It's educational software (both for traditional education as well as corporate training programs,) but the actual development's not my department, I just provide the source audio files for the deploy.

We just sat there and played cards with the doors closed and lights off. On the third week the Buick store's sales manager sent one of his guys after someone just window shopping. We were all reopened within an hour.
this is all made up, right?

I'm supposed to be having a birthday party Sat night, but Red was diagnosed with Influenza B yesterday despite getting a flu shot. I'm not irritated at him, just the virus and the really bad timing. We even were having the kid shipped off to grandmas for the night. *sigh*

Snow overnight. Slick roads. Fatalities reported during drive time traffic reports. Interstate lanes closed due to ice. Good grief.

people who pass themselves off as considerate posters posting clickies that actually download shite rather than taking you to the site where you can decide for yourself if you want it. One more on the Do Not Trust list.
