I feel like I've heard you complaining about work before Hat, maybe you should look at what else is available on the job market? Yeah I know unemployment is bad atm.. But doesn't hurt to look.

I am having too much fun to look for something different, it only hurts when we have to let people go, and when we have to cut cost..

A 4/5 is within the top-performer range, and about 10% of the people at the company get that rating or above, at my level it is less than 2%.

So it's all good, no reason to be unhappy!

mmm... creamy.


I love good restaurant/service stories.

One of my best friends is in New York right now with his girlfriend and his mother, celebrating his mother's 60th birthday. They wanted to eat at The Sunburnt Cow, but when it was closed, a bartender suggested Edi and the Wolf. They went there, loved the food, raved about it to the waiter who pointed out that the man behind them was chef-owner Eduard Frauneder. That led to an evening of talking and drinking beer and wine (on the house) with him and Lisa Cosman and, when the topic of the birthday came up, an insistence that they eat a birthday lunch the next day at German House - on the house - with Edi and a ton of german diplomats.

poo poo like this happens to this guy all the time.

I am going to be in NYC in late June and was planning on going to the restaurant where he works, not that I know what it is. (That's what PMs are for, I suppose). I'll even wear one of my trademark floral shirts (Liberty prints 4eva)

Then I'd demand that he cooks meat.

The correct thing to do in that situation is to come prepared. When the meal is served, pull a bloody steak out of your back pocket and slap it onto the plate.

I've eaten a dino food at the dino haus. Good stuff. He will try to fill you up on various veggies but then bring out the deep fried stuff later. Protip, hold out for the deep fried stuff.

not that the veggies and stuff were bad, they were very good.

I'm pretty sure the correct etiquette is to show up late wearing sweatpants and a stained wolfshirt along with your buddy and girlfriend that you've never mentioned until now. You need to comment loudly on how it's great that two homos can totally get married and poo poo and aint' that crazy how dem gays are like real people now. If you know any jokes that are simultaneously demeaning to women and people of different ethnicities then you should bust one of those out to break the ice. Since you brought your girlfriend it would be good manners to loudly mention how, "I ain't stickin my dick in no dude but man I wish I had married a dude that didn't bitch about leaving the seat up. Amirite fellas?" Hold your hand up high for a high-five and wait. If it's not answered, turn to your buddy, who has done nothing but sit silently and glower until now and they will "get you back". Your girlfriend should bray with laughter at your witticism.

Dinner is the most important part of the evening and to celebrate it properly you need to ask loudly for ketchup right at the start and then guffaw at your own joke. Comment on the color, texture and appearance of each dish. Anecdotes about not knowing the difference between curry and pig poo poo are most welcome. Please remember that your indoor voice should not change appreciably from your outdoor voice. If people don't hear you, how can they know how funny you are? Glowering friend should mutter something and start eating any bread on the table and only the bread. Girlfriend is advised to ask endless questions about every ingredient in the meal because she might have an allergy to common non-allergens.

I mention this in case you want to be excruciatingly polite but uttering the phrase, "Got anything *good*?" while stirring your meal around on the plate is considered the mark of only the most refined. It's not necessary for having a good time at a meal but you may want to keep it in your repertoire for special occasions.

Finally, the evening will end and you'll leave dino's house. If any alcohol was served earlier it behooves you to drink it as fast as possible so that you may be fully inebriated partway into dinner. Remember that as a guest you have certain, inalienable rights that transcend culture and circumstance. If at any time you don't feel that you are properly being catered to and that each whim is not met with a smile and prompt service it is considered appropriate to inform the host of this lack by commenting to your girlfriend. Indirect comments are the norm for any adult dinner party.

A backhanded compliment on your way out the door is the gracious way to end a dinner with friends. One option, "well, whatever that poo poo was, it was pretty tasty I guess. Good thing Taco Bell is 24-hours, amirite?" Laugh merrily and stagger to your car secure in the knowledge that you have comported yourself with all the dignity and good breeding one could hope for in a modern gentleman.


I hope this helps.

The literal definition is "work together" but in practice you can usually translate it as "very enthusiastic".

Originally it was. Some general or whatever borrowed a (mangled) phrase from Chinese to use as a motivational tool. "Hey guys let's work together and fight the bad guys! Hooyah! Gung ho!" etc. Then the meaning gradually changed over time, until it refers more to a sort of single-minded or aggressive enthusiasm.

See also: Motarded, Motard. Portmanteau of "motivated" and "retarded"

It is also worth noting that between American military branches, coordinated group grunting is surprisingly sophisticated. The difference between "Hooah!" and "Oorah!" while phonetically minor, is actually very significant, to the point where using the wrong one is a serious social gaffe, akin to wearing a read shirt to a Crips party.
