this isnt progress

I'm starting to put my foot down at work.

Last week, I was approached by my boss who said "we have you on salary, and I notice the last few months as soon as the closing bell rings, you are out the door. You have in the past stayed for sometimes 12-13 hours in one day. I'd not want to ask directly, but you get what I am leading to...."

I looked at him with a smile and said "4 months ago, we had something called communication going on. I knew immediately what was going on and so I could anticipate when to keep my after hours schedule open. That has since stopped. If you approach me at the end of the day, chances are I have appointments set around the expectation that I will not be needed beyond a certain point."

Boss says "ok, you are very right about that" Me: great, I will clear my schedule for next week incase you need me just let me know ahead of time."

At that point, there was a huge research project that I was assigned. I was to start monday (today) but as I have been told, I have to be released from other duties prior to going down to my R&D department.

This morning I said "so, its 9am... I need to get this project moving it is going to be about a weeks worth of work."

"hold off on that for now" the boss says "I need you to fill in on the phones so my department can get caught up"

This is just speculation at this point, but here is what is going to happen at 3:30pm today

"hey Danny, are you sticking around?" my boss will ask...

to which I will bluntly reply "my day doesn't begin after an 8 and a half hour shift."

alot of you have seen how I go off on companies who jerk me around over the phone, I am no different with my work life.

end random midday rant.

Want it from behind while you play Super Mario Brothers ? - m4w
Date: 2008-07-02, 2:35PM EDT

Do you love to play Super Mario Brothers on the Classic Nintendo System? Do you like to get tagged from behind while you do it? This is the post for you then.

You must know your way around the game before we meet, must be open to anal sex, also able to fake an orgasm is a plus.

I will send you the address to a hotel and a room number. When you arrive the door will be open. Please come in close and lock the door and close the shades if they are still open. I will be in the bathroom and the door will be closed. Turn on the TV and the Nintendo. Remove all of your clothing. Turn off all lights in the room and kneel down on the bed so you are directly in the light of the TV. You need to be facing the TV with your butt in the air pointed toward the pillows on the bed.

Press the start button on the controller when you are ready. I will hear the sound and turn the light off in the bathroom and come out. You will not look directly at me, only look at the TV. When the first level starts I will begin to finger you and lick you. I will be using lots of lube as well.

When you reach the end of level one, make sure to trigger the fireworks. This is vital to the entire experience. I must hear the fireworks. When level 2 begins and Mario walks into the pipe, I will penetrate you. You may say things like, "MORE", "HARDER", "YES", "fark ME", but nothing else. I will continue having sex until the level ends. DO NOT take the secret level skip. If you die I will pull out and spank you until the level restarts.

When you reach the flag you must again trigger the fireworks, and also orgasm. I will pull out. When the 1-3 starts I will penetrate your ass. You are allowed to say something like "OH GOD", "YES", OR "IT HURTS" no other conversation is allowed.

When level 1-4 starts I will alternate between holes as I see fit. You may beg me to cum inside or outside of you, depending on what you want. When boss falls and you reach the princess I will pull out and blow my load where you have convinced me I want too. You may then say something like "Thanks", "It was great", "I loved it", "Don't stop"

If I am impressed you may continue playing and I will continue to pleasure you. If I am not, I will turn the Nintendo Off and return to the bathroom. At this time you may clean your self with the towel that is beside the bed. Turn the lights on, redress yourself and leave.

I may come back out and talk to you as you dress but the conversation will most likely be short and revolve around scheduling another time to get together.

Antheria is moving into high gear!

Antheria is coming together wonderfully

everyone out there asking "what is Antheria?" and I know details have been hard to come by. In the next few days and weeks and months we will be releasing more information on the site so everyone can get in on the fun.

How can you help? Why its simple!

Preregister for the convention and book your rooms with the Westin LAX (the bunny commands you!). This hotel is absolutely amazing. The staff is friendly and is really looking forward to the coming events. Most of all they are looking forward to meeting YOU!

Cant make it? You can still help make this a wonderful convention by spreading the word. Post to FA, Twitter and any forums you hang out on. Talk about the convention, send a request to the staff requesting promotional material you can pass out at the fur meets. Send ideas of how this can be the best convention. If you are teetering on the edge of going, send an email and let the staff know, maybe they can help!

This convention is all about YOU, the fans who wish to come and have the best time of your life. Its a chance to see the wonderful talents the fans have to offer. Music, art and entertainment and MORE!

Stay Tuned for more info or check out twitter, FA, or Livejournal (and more sites yet to be announced ;) just search for Antheria LAX on your favorite forum, if theres nothing there then its time to post!

Leaving Livejournal

Leadies and gentle furs.

The crowd has moved on to twitter and furaffinity.

I have decided that these are long standing enough to move my base of operations to so I invite everyone to join me. =)

Livejournal is great, its served me well these past what... 8 years (both as alpinefox and rainhopper roo) but i need to get with the times =)

Drop me a watch on FA I am Rainhopper there. I am also rainhopper on Twitter. I try to tweet something every day and its usually about as innane as the stuff i post here.

I may keep my LJ alive for those stragglers but its likely to be an update here and there rather than every day.

take care all and see you over there!

Big mac, fries and a credit report please, to go.

You go through life learning that some things are private. Your financial issues is usually at the top of the list.

I dont discuss my credit score with anyone, I dont tell my neighbor about my last home loan application.. these things are very personal and private.

In america today, this is not the case. When you go to apply for any job, they run your credit report and get a full list of all of your financial obligations, anything you default on, anything you are behind in. Some may be comfortable with this but for me, this is a complete invasion of privacy. The person looking over those reports was one interview away from flipping burgers at mc donalds. Would you order a big mac then follow up with "my fico score is 712, I owe 4k on my credit cards and I have a boat loan that i defaulted on in 1987" NO! why is someone looking at my credit information. Making judgments based on what financial obligations i have.

The original purpose of a credit report was to give a prospective loan company a tangible rating on weather you were trustworthy enough based on your past history. They were given a number and from that number your loan was written based on risks involved with the numeric rating you were given. They arent supposed to look over every loan you have had just to make that decision. There are systems in place that people pay a great deal for in order to calculate that out based on a well planned out scoring system. Something like this took several minds many years to develop properly (and its still evolving!) What makes some 30 year old manager of a call center think they can make a better judgement... further more WHY are they even looking at that information?

If I am taking calls over the phone to tell some dipshit that he installed his memory incorrectly, how does my financial history factor into that? how my ability to do my job factors into my credit score is beyond me. Responsibility and situational hardship are not concidered by these people and I dont understand why they look at this information and it makes me quite uncomfortable.
