Online Proctoring: My Horror Story

I enjoy my creature comforts. I like working from my couch some days, with blankets all bundled around me, feet propped up, and a cup of coffee nearby. Most importantly I like all of those things in my own house. If offered an opportunity to get coffee at a fancy coffeeshop or make myself a cupContinue reading “Online Proctoring: My Horror Story”

DnDF17 Episode 3: To the smithy

Previously on DnDF…AKA better late than never The temple district was in disarray, but the members of Bacon Ipsum had to continue their work. Dwarves were moving out of the streets, and while the team wanted to know their destination, Trailblazer had a bad feeling about the growing glow near her former mentor’s blacksmith forge.Continue reading “DnDF17 Episode 3: To the smithy”

DnDF17 Episode 2: Everything must be dwarf

Previously on DnDF17… The members of Bacon Ipsum stared in growing horror at the flames consuming Moscone. Datatello’s concern heightened with each area he recognized, but his eyes focused on his own neighborhood, wondering if his sister, Erikuhl, was safe. Bakaryu had to use all of her mental discipline to stay put, seeing the glowContinue reading “DnDF17 Episode 2: Everything must be dwarf”

DnDF17: The adventure so far

Last week, on DnDF17 (some artistic liberties have been taken) The weary members of Bacon Ipsum wound through the streets of Moscone. They were silent, all of them thinking only of the destination and what would await them there – the best coffee in Forcelandia and payment for their efforts defeating what may or mayContinue reading “DnDF17: The adventure so far”

I have news for you all… SHE IS BACK WITH A VENGEANCE! And by vengeance, I simply mean that I will be reprising this role for DnDF17!Continue reading “It’s that time again!”

Ready Admin One

Or what video games have taught me as a Salesforce admin (and consultant). I realize that this will come as a shock to almost 0% of my audience, but I like to play video games. Mostly long (100 hour plus) RPGs with rich stories, well-developed characters, or at least enough of one to mask the lackContinue reading “Ready Admin One”

Time flies etc.

I have had a few people lately approach me to ask about what it’s like being a consultant. I’m always a little surprised by that because I think “why would they ask me? I haven’t been at it very long.” I looked at the calendar recently. It’s already almost September. 2017. What the actual…anyway, thatContinue reading “Time flies etc.”

Obligatory apology and excuses blog post

That’s right, folks, it’s that time again, where I fish for flimsy excuses about why my (now paid) blog site has lain dormant as Moria for the past…can we say weeks? I’ll feel better if I say weeks. Right, so let’s get it over with. I’ve been working. Really, truly, I have. Statistically speaking, itContinue reading “Obligatory apology and excuses blog post”

Sweet Baby, Mama Loves You

Sweet baby, mama loves you. You came to me, unexpectedly, when I was a junior in college. Working at the pizza place, living with a fellow student who had a kitten, and you were mentioned offhandedly. Someone was moving and couldn’t bring their cat, and did I know anyone interested in a black cat? Me.Continue reading “Sweet Baby, Mama Loves You”
