    How Did You Pick Your Profession?

    Post high school gap year morphed towards two and I joined the Navy as a straight reserve track, basic then A school then reserves. During one of the last weeks of equipment school at gulfport, we were standing around being shown the parts of the grader by Petty Officer Pustay prior to driving it. I was bored and stupid and scratched "FTN" into the rust on top of the wheel that turns the blade. Someone ratted me out and after being informed that ten years prior I would have had my ass beat but good, my consequence was to give an early morning GMT (general military training) to my company about Marvin Shields, a Seabee hero in Vietnam. Standing in front of a captive audience telling them about things that were important and interesting felt fairly OK. Now entering year 22 of junior high audience management.

    If he's willing to slouch a bit he could get a gig at the Yardhouse.

    Sonoma county politics are starting to have a certain appeal... "Hundley said that for the several years she managed a wine bar at Burning Man "that's associated with a consent-focused, sex-positive theme camp."
  10. We got married on a July Thursday night at Santa Monica Yacht Club. All our friends and guests were either teachers, retired, or low-key bohemians and Thursday was available. As was the jazz quartet. Our indulgence was motoring across the harbor to the Ritz for the night, 19 years ago. Today was a biggie-- she joined the staff at the school where I've been working 16 years and I expect we'll both be there till retirement!

    The NQR part was my not quite right commentary that would have put me on the shit list of about every suburban mom on my local facebook feed if I'd plopped it there. FWIW the one local PD that released it was soon scorned by the larger PD and the school district; the notice was already moot by the time the district had fielded a gazillion panicked phone calls on the first day of school.

    from a local story... "So far, space has been leased to pop culture figurine manufacturer Sideshow Collectibles, knit blanket and clothing manufacturer Barefoot Dreams, Ferguson plumbing supplies, Atara Biotherapeutics, Sage Publications and Nicotine River, a liquid nicotine supplier to e-liquid producers and manufacturers, said Haider Alawami, the city’s economic development manager."
