A Brief Reprieve
Tuesday, June 7, 2005

That's right. Apparently, my boss told my shop to be expecting me next week. So, I'm here for now. I'll be training my replacement (How to fit twenty minutes worth of information into three days? Hmmmm...)

To be honest with everyone, I can't be that bitter about all this...It was probably coming anyways. My bosses have not been happy with my work, but also have not provided any information on how I could be doing better. That's the Air Force for you...You suck, but I'm not gonna tell you why.

So, after next week, I have to catch up on three months of aircraft training. I don't think they told my old boss that I was coming back. He seems to be pleasant around me, and that can only mean he doesn't know. He was very public about his dislike of me while I was there, and more so after I left. My wife suggested involving other authorities about it, but that would be taking things rather too far, I think.

I had my first team play on City of Heroes last night...I've never been killed so many times, so quickly. Think I may just have to be a lone wolf.

I can't stop thinking that I've let down in some way now that I can't frequent it as much as I used to. I love this site, dearly, and I admire many of people who post here. You couldn't ask for a nicer, more intelligent group of people.

Well, you could ask, but what are you gonna get? Another day older, and deeper in debt, that's what!

Oh wait...that's 16 tons, ain't it?

I played CoH for a couple of months but never really got into it. My character (Big Damn Hero. No, really, that was his name.) got up to the mid-20's fairly easily but I never found it to be anything more than a run around, fight the next computer opponent and win or lose depending on whether he is stronger or weaker than your statistics.

Anywho, MWP, perhaps your boss is a browncoat and you've won him over with your insightful blogs and ingenious posts.

I can see it now...ENTROPY GIRL, and her sidekick STATUS QUO LASS...Together, they're really not making much of a difference...

I know exactly what kind of hero! In fact, if I thought she were at all marketable, I'd write a comic. Alas, she's not very marketable....she wears clothes. ;-)


Can't you just picture me as this crazy chaos girl who saves the day but causes additional problems along the way?

MANWITHPEZ much FUN! I wish you could play too! It would be great, though I can't imagine what kind of hero you would design...

I'd say he doesn't know...or he's decided he likes ya.

I agree with you, taking things far in the military only lets other people know how to push your buttons. Might as well just try to make the best of things.

Everytime I read about CoH, I want to play. Hunt you down and team up...that'd be fun. Sometimes it's bad to be an Apple Girl.

...I've owe my soul to the company store.
