I like the word folderol.
I still have a little trouble understanding how Aflac or similar programs could be beneficial to me over and above my other health insurance... it doesn't seem like it's of much utility to my situation, but perhaps I'm mistaken. I don't know it it's me, or if the folks explaining it sort of missed my personal buttons. (Most of the talk sounded a bit like standard insurance fear-mongering.) The whole medical / insurance system really gets my goat sometimes - there's always a feel of a protection racket itching in the back of my skull.
Heard through the grapevine that my ex's home went into foreclosure. I pity her, but I don't know the whole situation. I hope that she and her family find a good place to crash and get cover... seems like a heck of a thing to happen at Christmas.
Thinking good thoughts about BHK today. She has been working very hard for quite some time on multiple difficult projects. Digging up old records is tough ... the chain of information is full of weak links. I remember how annoying it was just to shift information between Comcast and Verizon - slip that same information between state and federal agencies, and it only adds to the mountain of paperwork, receipt of careless service and red tape.
I have the urge to map out my office building (at least the floor I'm on), our house in North Beach, and maybe some of WMATA in a fps engine like counterstrike or half-life, just to do it. Home wouldn't be a huge undertaking, and I have the layout of the tower... but the subway might be tricky. Given the huge number of mods out there already, it wouldn't surprise me if it already existed in some rippable form.
I wanted my own radio station when I was in High school... call letters WMBT - wombat radio.
After work, we visited the in-laws for a bit.... watched The Santa Clause. It's sort of nice to have fun family nearby. Nobody else had seen the film, which was received well enough.
