It's been a big week for the fediverse so i'm doing another introduction and a new Pinned Toot.
I'm boanus. I like anarchy, learning, cartoons, Star Trek, video games, etc.
I have a career in software development (which i hate) that loosely reflects my interest in the theory of computation (which i love).
I use this instance as my tooting-from-work account, but i have two others. A locked account at @boanus for personal/political toots and another public one at @boanus for livetoots.
Every video has at least five comments saying one of the patients isn't funny.
The patient segments are getting better. it's less monologuey
I love that Fred Stoller shows up always late or early to his appointments, by several days
Dr. Katz, class reunions
Ben: "I wasn't in a gang in high school. I was in the map club, though. That was kind of like a gang. But, it was a gang that just loved maps."
Dr. Katz, class reunions
This episode is about Ben's 5 year High School reunion.
It's been 10 years since i was in high school and as far as i can tell, no one has ever tried to organize a reunion
It was so long ago that i cannot remember anything about taking French lessons, who she was or what she looked like, or when and why we stopped doing it, but i remember the anxiety and embarrassment so strongly.
I remember the first time i felt majorly embarrassed and lied. I was learning French from a Tutor and she gave me a cassette tape with some exercises and i realized i could record over it with my little toy tape deck and all i did was burp into the microphone. When she came around next time i pretended i didn't know where it was.
Dr Katz and Ben have such a funny relationship.
ben thinks he has ESP. "Think of an animal between 1 and 10" lol
I'm reviewing my previous job experience in my cover letters and it's somehow making me wish i didn't quit. which is unbelievable because i know how much i wanted to move on, but yeah, they treated me really well
The biggest problem i face when applying for jobs is whether or not i break my rule of not capitalizing my name or the pronoun "i." One the one hand, it looks unprofessional to old fuddy-duddies, but on the other hand, English writing conventions are antiquated and things need to be shaken up.
I'm realizing while looking at my resume that i have 8+ years full stack web developer experience. I never thought that way before because i counted the first three years as "just a student job" but when i add that on, 8 years is monumental. When hiring at my old job, i used to look at people with 8 years of experience and think "fuck, that's too much"
just stop offering to help, you sack
oh man Judy Tenuta is in this episode and this is the only other place i've seen or heard her besides Space Ghost Coast to Coast
I like how Laura is usually annoyed by Ben but will allow him to entertain her if it helps her waste time.
