After reading the article, I still don't understand what connection they were trying to make between the two. But the part of the article dealing with repetitive brain injury is really interesting.

Hello!

I received my FedEx package yesterday (WFR stuff, redeployment FAQ, etc) and have two questions.

1. There is an self-addressed stamped envelope in the package, but apparently nothing to send back. Was the inclusion of the envelope an accident, or was something left out of the package?

2. There is a reference to people over forty receiving "an ADEA", with a reference to paragraph twelve in a document we have not received yet. What is an ADEA, and how does it apply to WFR?

Thank you for your time!

2. There is a reference to people over forty receiving "an ADEA", with a reference to paragraph twelve in a document we have not received yet. What is an ADEA, and how does it apply to WFR? Yes, it will be provided after termination.

Thanks, but seriously, can't you even tell me what the acronym stands for?

The ADEA is part of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act

Annoying the cats

I left the house today with the bathroom door shut and two very annoyed cats sitting outside of it.

There are sugar ants, and i had to leave poison out, so no kitties in the bathroom for a couple of days.

Nothing annoys cats like a closed door :)

last Day Oct 23rd

We were finally notified today. Hallelujah!! Last day at work will be Oct 23rd. I can now file all the paperwork I've been sitting on for two months.

Honestly, this is a good thing. I've hated this job for the last year.

Normally we would get the option of taking the rest of the day off. Since we've known about his for awhile (and we have way too much work to do) my boss asked us to take a Fri or Monday off in the next two weeks instead. XLNT! Three day weekend coming up.

Couch and pee

So I'm sitting in the living room last night, and since its humid, all I can smell is the couch. The couch which Yari has decided in a couple of instances of stress to pee on.

I believe that it is confined to the cushions. Any tips on cleaning them so I don't have to toss the whole couch? Honestly, I bought from St Vincent de Paul's last year for $90, so if I have to toss it that's fine.
