Ok so since people are still apparently watching this journal I should probably provide, like, an actual update or something >>

So I'm in Seattle. It's a lot nicer than Florida in many, many ways... The coffee is good, the food is good (not much Mexican, but the taco bus will suffice), the weather is good (so much snow this winter though XD and people are noob drivers), and the scenery is good (something besides palm trees? nowai).

I'm closer to the other half of my family, which is nice because Mom can come up here for about $160 on very short notice and stay for the weekend (which she's done once so far).

The only thing that's kind of lame is that I can't find a job (going on what, 4 months now?), and that I didn't get accepted into grad school. So I'm feeling very, uh, validated right now. Yeah... right. And the temp agencies I'm signed up with seem to think that I only want to do QA work, which is stupid, because then I go for an interview and I have almost no experience compared to the other people or I'm totally not what they're looking for and then.. back to square one.

So I'll be honest, my career outlook is seeming a little bit... bleak. And I am discouraged.

I need a new layout, but I am lazy and suck at layouts.

I've been playing a lot of WoW (probably more than is healthy) to distract myself. It's ok. So if you play and happen to be on Tho Bro, lemme know :P

That is all for now.

Taco Bus?

The job market seems to be pretty miserable everywhere, these days. I was just down in Florida for six months, and I couldn't find a job to save my life. But these things do have a way of turning themselves around, so maybe it won't be too much longer before they do. At least, I certainly hope so.

Yeah.. I know unemployment is pretty crazy :| And it still hasn't bottomed out either, I'm told, which sucks extra hard.

Glad to hear from you. :) Things will work out, the economy just sucks right now.

Seattle's better.
I mean, what?

Eurgh. Everyone wants people to do QA, but anyone qualified for it doesn't want to do it anymore.

Yeah.. and I'm not qualified (not really) and don't want to do it and somehow these are the only leads I get anyway? >>;;

It.. uh.. makes sense?

re: elk buffbars, blessing of demonstration

this is in response to your post on wow_ladies, which as a man i'm evidently unqualified to answer questions on. so:

it's simple enough to fix this, though it's completely idiotic that this is necessary.

open the ../World of Warcraft/Interface/AddOns/ElkBuffBars/EBB_BarGroup.lua file in notepad, and find the following block of text:

local DATA_DEMO = {
id = -1,
name = "Blessing of Demonstration",
realname = "Blessing of Demonstration",
rank = 23,
type = "FAKE",
realtype = "FAKE",
debufftype = nil,
timeleft = 817,
timemax = 1200,
untilcancelled = nil,
charges = 5,
maxcharges = 5,
icon = [[Interface\Icons\INV_Misc_QuestionMark]],
ismine = true

delete all of it, save, restart WoW if it's open. magic.
