    Watching the aftermath (and some of the still ongoing) flooding nearby... My gosh... We were lucky af, the rains went right over our little valley, and the neighbouring towns were swimming and without electricity yesterday but the water's mostly gone back down to the river courses now, overall (though still high). It's armaggedon just a bit further west and south, with dams either on the edge of breaking or actually cracking.

    So, I'm back and riiight back to complaining. Having a situation at work :mellow: Short version:

    Been working at a new job since November 2020, it's part time with the idea to make it full-time if/when stuff picks up again. We've got a client who likes my work and got wind of the fact that I'm willing to work full-time and is now offering me to switch and I know I could haggle a nice increase in my hourly rate if I were to agree. Problem: the prospects of this being a long-time opportunity are vague at best (we're developing a product for him that may or may not take off well) and also, my current boss has put money into teaching me skills he needs me to know and also also, I actually really love my current position (as much as I can love a job I'm working to be able to afford rent, anyway). It would be an easy no if not for the fact that I fucking need more money. Not "eating noodles for half the month"-kind of need, but the "I see expenses on the horizon which I'm going to need money for"-kind of need. Also, the prospects of my current job going full-time any time soon are equally vague as they depend just as much on my boss's vague idea of how something could work and they're more vague than the product the other dude is having us develop for him.

    It's overall an awkward situation. On one hand, I want to be able to put more time into this dude's project just for the sake of getting it over with, my boss is frustrated because he wants me to work on other stuff but cannot afford to pay me for more time atm (and actually earns money from the time I spend on dude's project) and I get barely anything done because both are in my face with "when's x gonna be done?". More time to work on dude's stuff would solve both the overall time and my money issue BUT would piss off the guy I'm hoping to working for long-term aaaand it the opportunity is not reliable enough to give up a boring and tiresome af but reliable side-job I actually want to give up.

    Aaaah :blink:

    How does one word an "Thanks for the offer but I'd rather you keep paying my boss for my precious time instead of me directly"-mail politely?

    I'M BACK!

    ...not that anyone noticed me being gone, I figure, but my idiot ass had managed to lock myself out of my account. Thanks to those who helped me getting back in, you know who you are :thumbsup:

    We got a bread maker for Christmas. Mr PigDog has asked for one for a few years running and I always said no because me and unlimited access to bread ends with the fire brigade having to take windows out of our house to crane me into an ambulance when my arteries clog closed. About 2 years ago I started working on weaning myself off my white bread addiction. We now have a loaf of white bread once every couple of months and the rest of the time we have wholegrain which I don't like very much and hence no longer eat a lot of bread.


    This year I relented on his bread maker request because fuck it there's nothing else to do. We made our first loaf of white on 26th and just finished out third for dinner tonight. We are going to need bigger windows.


    Homemade wholegrain bread is delicious, though! And you can pimp it with whatever you like! I've been making my own bread for a while now and I usually use half wholegrain spelt flour and half whatever else I feel like: wheat flour, rye flour, buckwheat flour, then chuck in stuff like walnuts, oats, linseeds, chia seeds, cranberries, goji berries... whatever's at hand (not all at once, of course). It's the best.

    I'm in the US (so still with the ugly stuff, but less with ground refusing to still) I'm okay, and it looks like all friends and family are okay (if a little bit traumatised, apparently it's not a pleasant experience even for those who are not injured or have any property damage or anything).

    You know, chat's refusal to make sounds when people enter or leave, or show the number of comments when I'm in another tab is extremely inconvenient. Anyway, *hugs*
