Oh, I got offered a good GIS job 90 minutes after I inked a deal to sell insurance (and ponying up the money for the licensing/classes). So, after 3 years, I'll finally have a job, and one I want to do.

Yay, NGH! Great news, man

I wasn't looking to selling insurance, but if that call came 2 hours earlier.

Sorry I wasn't able to respond to your request. I have two papers due right after T-Giving. Going out of my mind.

There must be tons of giant retirement communities in Florida.

I still have nightmares to this day of not showing up to class on time, or forgetting where the room is, or justifying not going but being freaked out nonetheless
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/23/16 8:45pm melinda:

@Gary: my school anxiety dream usually involves having somehow forgotten to attend a class all semester.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 11/23/16 8:51pm melinda:

There's another dream where I have to go back to high school as an adult.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/23/16 8:56pm northguineahills:

So far, the Ngozi Family are the only artists familiar to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/23/16 8:59pm listener james from westwood:

I too still have school nightmares, both high school and college. Can't find locker, can't remember combo, can't find classroom, school is an unending maze, can't find school's exit, didn't study all semester, never read the textbook, or a combo plate of two or more of the above. Whee!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/23/16 8:59pm northguineahills:

yes, Bamako is the capital of Mali.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/23/16 9:00pm listener james from westwood:

IIRC once LCD, the WFMU magazine, or maybe the old blog, once published a list of WFMU DJs' DJing nightmares. I also recall "records left on train" being one of them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/23/16 9:01pm northguineahills:

My only school nightmare I have is my job sending me back to grad school and just being bored and frustrated... (I'm not sure how that premise got in my psyche, b/c there's no basis for it).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/23/16 9:03pm northguineahills:

I left a crate of records in a cab once, luckily the cab was just at the light down the block and I ran after him and got them back (while leaving my flight case of records on the sidewalk, glad no one took them).
Avatar Wed. 11/23/16 9:04pm Gary:

I once left 10 years of original comics art in a cafe and forgot about it until the next day. They had held it for me
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/23/16 9:05pm listener james from westwood:

Oof, Gary and ngh, what a horrifying feeling both must have been.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 11/23/16 9:06pm listener james from westwood:

I'm still bent out of shape about losing a really good, Tom-Baker-as-Dr.-Who-length scarf on a fucking bus a decade ago; either of those sort of losses would immobilize me.

I left a brand new winter coat in an airport taxi (b/c it was darn warm), and a vintage winter coat at a club.
Avatar Wed. 11/23/16 9:10pm Gary:

Here's one that amazes me to this day: I was meeting a friend in the park -- the park in the 20s, I can't remember the name. We sat on a bench taking and having lunch. It was a hot day and I was wearing a nice sport coat, which I took off ... and forgot to bring back to the office with me. After work, I went to the park, and it was gone. But, I asked this guy who was working at the park if he had happened to see it. He hadn't but told me there was a lost and found underground, and took me there. It was there.

Nah, it was a work day for us at UC. But I was able to leave around midday and telecommute the remainder. Sorry I've missed a couple weeks. Trouble Maker!!
Avatar Wed. 11/23/16 9:32pm Gary:

Ah! My GF who works at a university got off around 2 today -- I guess there were still classes? Or at least professor office hours
Avatar Wed. 11/23/16 9:34pm Doug Schulkind:

I had class off today. Got to hear Ridgewood Radio live for the first time since August.

Well, I got to commit to my personal hygiene and pack so I can leave early in the AM, ciao-sers, y'all!
