Gene Wilder / Condescending Wonka   Leave a comment

There’s no earthly way of knowing
Which direction we are going
There’s no knowing where we’re rowing
Or which way the river’s flowing

– Willy Wonka (Gene Wilder)

RIP

Dear Internet N00bs,

Spoiler alert: Willy Wonka memes are not about Gene Wilder.

Willy Wonka memes will live much longer than your attention span, showing that you care. Your selective outrage over this “disrespect” of posting Condescending Wonka memes will be as short lived as the next clickbait/triggering thing you’ll be upset about and encounter online.

Sincerely,

Guy Who Experienced 14.4K Modem Connection

I’m done.

Summer Almost Done Musings   Leave a comment

It’s been awhile.

  • Otakon came and gone. Just like last year, I did not take as many photos. I attended the Fairy Tail Photoshoot, and that was the last Otakon related photos I took. I have yet to upload them.
  • I’m still under contract at work. Our project manager put a freeze on converting contractors for good reason (at least that’s what they say). A new statement of work is coming and there are new positions. If they hired contractors now, they won’t be eligible to apply for the new positions for 30 days (probably more) and those positions will be filled up. We’ll see.
  • I drove in the Capital Beltway today for the first time in 8 months. I do not miss it at all.
  • College friends are getting engaged, having kids, or getting married. I’ve seen the photos shared. I think part of me will always feel envious or that I missed out in the festivities and the gatherings. It probably would have been nice If I had a closer relationship with them. Then again, when I really think about it, factor in the logistics of these events and my overall personality and outlook on things, I’m relieved that I’m not going through all of it and putting up a face on a stressful event. Small doses.
  • I’ll probably treat my sister to dinner tonight.

I’m done.
