That’s probably the biggest of any “ravette”

Rant: we’ve been fairly convinced Nicola had MS for the past few months.

Rave: she doesn’t have MS. Or any neurological condition.

Rant: she’s still ill.

Rave: critical illness cover.
Sorry to hear that, glad to know she doesn't have MS but that is still scary to not know what is going on. I have often said that if I get sick I hope it is something common that Dr's know how to treat not some mystery illness that I spend years chasing around. According to House MD she has lupus :P. I hope you get some answers soon.

That's awesome that they've ruled out MS. Hopefully they'll have some answers soon Rors.

Rave: NEW JOB! More money, less responsibility, less stress, better benefits, no more commute as it's a full time remote gig. I get to see my kid for more than 2 hours a day and I don't have to spend $300/mo on gasoline! I've had the same commute for over a decade now so I'm a little excited about walking from my kitchen to my home office to go to work.

My title will still be Software Engineer but I'll basically be a bridge between a developer support team and the development team. In the past this team hasn't had a designated dev to oversee client data fixes and make the decision on what gets fixed as a one off SQL script vs what gets incorporated into the application as a safeguard for future issues. It works out for me because I prefer problem solving and design work to actual 'new development'. My job will basically be to dive in and become a domain expert in their code base and database schema to help both sides create the best solution to the problems clients face while using the software.

Sorry, guess I should've clarified, the company provides software that helps manage sales and scheduling for advertising in Radio and Cable/broadcast/network television.

Rave/Rant: Looks like we might finally start building a house on our land soon. This assumes the appraisal on the land + house comes out where I need it and the bank will loan us an obscene amount of money.

Rant: fucking typhoon season! At this rate there's going to be more than one typhoon a week hitting the area for the next two months! It completely throws off the school schedule.

Rave: at least hopefully the wind and rain will help break the hell that is summer. Hopefully.

I second this only it's Hurricanes here in the Atlantic. The weather channel is already getting their hard ons out to touch while they talk about the possibilities this season.

Rant: mother fucking Scotland! So here I am, a knitter fond of a specific Scottish yarn company, wanting to order one of their sweater kits because I want a new winter sweater (and, given Japan, I can't fucking buy one because they're all too short), and I discover that, currently, only the small sizes of the sweater kit are in stock. It's a fucking yarn company! They have the yarn, they have the pattern, there should be no 'out of stock' for other sizes! It's fucking ridiculous! Get out of the field and quit shagging your damn sheep and shear them and ship the damn yarn you Scottish sheep shaggers!

Rave: I found this lovely rosehip and hibiscus tea at the store today. It really is quite lovely. I'm suspicious of the fact that it's German. Germans aren't know for their dainty, floral teas, but there's always a few oddballs in every culture.

Did you contact them about it? What did they say? Even if they insist they can’t help, can you just order two small kits and go from there? :)

I’ll be honest, I told them not to just to fuck with you.
