    Since today’s date is 02/02/2020, if you write the date backwards, it’s still the same.

    I was thinking about having some drinks tonight but I haven’t had any alcohol since New Year’s Eve and now that I’ve gone that long, I don’t even feel like it haha.

    Sounds like you are having a great time! I remember watching the Superbowl a couple of times with some friends during undergraduate studies. I remember it fondly. :slight_smile:

    I'm doing the onboarding paperwork for my new job (which is with a major bank) and this is one of the forms:

    I'm really not sure how I feel about a company asking all of its new employees what their sexual orientation is.

    My university includes "what is your sexual orientation?" on every single survey about everything. "Are books too expensive this year? Please mark your sexual orientation" etc.

    That's just normal now apparently.

    A university I can understand but a Fortune 500 corporation is a bit shady.

    I am seeing it increasingly that companies - small and large - will ask the question, though usually you have a choice of not answering it if you prefer not to, or feel uncomfortable. From what I have seen thus far, it is largely done with the idea of ensuring that the workplace of an organisation works towards being representative of the larger society.

    I was in a supermarket before when two people were having a conversation. One of them said "Maybe I should just pretend to be straight, I really can't be bothered" and I have no idea what the context of this discussion was. I can't help but nosily wonder about it.

    My cousin is actually having a birthday party for her dog. One of the dumbest things I've ever heard of.

    I have never met a person who threw a birthday party for their dog but I can see how it could happen... or why somebody would do it. :slight_smile:

    Packing day has been a giant clusterfuck. We got 4 inches of snow last night and as we were trying to rearrange the cars in the driveway, my aunt somehow managed to back into my neighbors' yard and get stuck. We had to call a tow truck.

    To make matters worse, my dad (who's in Jacksonville on a business trip) missed his connection and might end up getting rerouted into Detroit instead of Flint. That means someone has to drive all the way down there and get him.

    On top of it all, we have to make the ~140 mile drive and get there tomorrow by 10:00 AM. This has been a total fubar.

    It's 4am and I've been trying to sleep since 10. Should I just get up?? It's so dark out. I kinda wish I'd been able to use this time to do something productive.
