No Rest for the Wicked (Long Trip)

As engineering responsibilities and my title increased, yet old requirements lingered on, I tried to clarify two things up the chain of command.

A) One of the main reasons I’ve stayed at my company over twenty-five years is an almost negligible amount of travel away from my family was required, which is also a main requirement to extend this time past a quarter century.

B)  I felt I was spending an excessive amount of time working on and explaining a specific one of our review systems, and hoped to get others more well versed in its use, allowing me to focus on other avenues.

The response to this was, naturally, to assign me to the corporate wide team to come up with overall guidance on that review system, requiring a trip for all of us to have a several day face to face meeting at our New Hampshire campus.

A Most Egregious Omission

Last fall when I went on yet another of my “Movies that define me” obsession filled rants I referred to the Bill and Ted franchise only as an aside:

“Yes, I am a fan of the Bill and Ted films.  While they are very enjoyable, and do a spectacular job of Time Travel in a fixed time stream consistency, they don't quite reach "impact" level.”

Clearly the only reason I made that statement, was it had been far too long since I saw those most excellent (*air guitar!*) movies.

“Avengers…” *Spoilers* Layer 1

There’s really no way to talk about this film without spoiling it. (Click here for last week’s post for an attempt)
