Are there any other Journey fans here?



Also, I have (yet another) job interview tomorrow morning. Any pointers from anyone?
Take a few seconds to think about how to respond to their questions (as long as you don't look like you've blanked out)..... it will give you time to formulate an answer, you'll be calmer and less likely to waffle.
It also lets them see you're taking the questions seriously and put thought into things rather than regurgitate a stock answer.

That's actually where I got the thread name from. I was intentionally trying to poison people's minds with a catchy Journey song

Also, just be confident! Get a solid foundation for how you might answer questions, but don't overthink it to the point where you start getting nervous or doubting yourself.

Thank you both for the good answers!


Just got back from the interview not long ago. I think I did okay- as in I think the manager liked me. She said "I'm looking forward to talking to you again"

I took that as a very good sign- that and she liked my past work experience in a hectic place- as in I truly know what to expect in a job like that.

I will know for sure by the 25th - it sounds like a good fit for me *crosses fingers*

Oh and since I have a random mind and love a thread that is just for such a thing: Every time I look in the mirror I keep being reminded of my father .... as in when he got older. Not sure how I feel about this.....

Anyone watch american horror story last night? I'm pretty sure that clown will be a part of every nightmare I have from now on.

What did you think of the first episode?

Seems to me like it's gonna be a decent season.

They're getting really artsy with the camera work. At least it seemed more so then previous seasons.

I've heard it a few times, it is a real thing. I think they're a bit off on when people start to lose the ability to hear that sound, but it will also vary person to person. My mom cannot hear sounds of that pitch. It's like older TVs that would make a similar sound when you turned them on, drove me and my dad crazy but my mom couldn't hear it.

You might be in your 40s if you remember rooms full of computer monitors that made that almost inaudible whine that your friends couldn't hear.

How is Street Fighter 2's Guile like the Mona Lisa?

Forty, and I winced at it. Then again I have trouble tuning out traffic, and have speculated that listening to high-volume music is a deliberate strategy to deafen oneself enough that background noise is no longer painful.

A guy at one of the local papers has taken to giving weather forecasts that reflect how we are all really feeling:

http://ottawacitizen.com/storyline/t...weather-ottawa

Sadly there doesn't seem to be any way to read the archive, so you get whatever is up there today. April 2nd isn't bad, and I like the gif at the end, but some of the one recently have been even better. How it is when you go look, I can't promise.

Also, if & when Esther checks in or anyone else who has any idea:
Is this for-real? I mean, how accurately do the subtitles match-up with the sound? What, if any, other context do I need? i.e. is this really a North Korean film or am I being silly to even wonder as much?

Like me, neither of them are particularly blessed in the shoulder department. We have, like, noulders? It's just this general downward slant that no bag or bra strap cares to respect (no judgement, Guile). But utter ridiculousness aside...... eyebrows?

What can probably best be described as a hipster coffee shop has opened up in my neighborhood. I could barely resist laughing at how stereotypical it was, as the thickly bearded and visibly tatooed young man spent over a minute explaining the wonders of "nitrogen coffee," which has to be the most gimmicky way I've yet heard of to make coffee. Seriously, it requires nitrogen tanks, beer casks and taps, and overnight brewing. After all that, I had to try it.

Darn it all, it was good. Cold coffee is usually pretty meh, but this had wonderful flavour.

I've already detoured once to grab another cup of it.

And finally it sunk in, I am in fact the target market for this. At five bucks a glass, it isn't other twenty-somethings that are going to buy it, mostly. It is in fact a brilliant wealth transfer scheme, targeting the blase bourgeoisie like me, who might be willing to pay twice the price for a marginally better cold coffee on a hot day.

The high price is, probably, even part of the sales pitch--"the brewing method is so ridiculously complicated that we have to charge you that much for a plain coffee". A pitch that will work most on people who have reached that time in their lives when they can afford to flatter themselves about their refined taste in their tipple of choice.

I see all of that ....... and I still want another freaking cup of that coffee.

Ok.. I have a question.. has anyone noticed that most stories about bbws/bhms are:

1. Short
2 go straight to the BBWs/BHMs having sex on a first date/meeting with the men/woman?

Where is the story line? Ugh! I don't mind the sexual stuff, but I want some content.

Story's with no real content, just "he is handsome.. into her.. he asks her out and he tells her she is sexy and they have sex on the first date.. and live happily ever after" with nothing else substantial... well.. I might as well watch porn..
