DARN library book I was reading and enjoying MIA
I found the bookmark that I thought was in it in my bedroom
It is a book somethign like
which I am enjoying
She clearly was influenced both by A Course in Miracles and The Artist's Way
Oh and after thought that she gave a nod in her writing to each.
It was a good read while working when it was slow and I did not have any volunteer work to do.
I have work today so this really is a 2 min vent.
Kid caught flight to Seattle.
They did not respond to my text to please let me know landed safely.
BUT sibling heard from them
so good news.
I am not thrilled that I had put a $50 bill aside with intent to give to them. (Put in a safe spot along with my car key as the car is not yet sold or donated. It is parked at the BF home. I waitied as actually was so called "short listed" for a kicking good full time role. BUT I think the intial interviewer is just very optomistic.
Very much the vibes of Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Vibes of the lovely Indian recruiter working for a staffing agency.
Not even a first interview. NO just a head hunter.
She was far more optimistic than warranted.
I should have known that and not even had any hope.
BUT IT WAS such a great fit.
My threshold is 30 min.
Although thinking again that maybe I should keep it narrow to the 12 miles to next town and a role I can really bike commute to a couple days a week.
I am quite serious.
I did bike a couple days and felt good!
10 miles Sun
I do feel like I caught a cold!
I did also bike to church Sun morning in the rain as I REALLY WANTED TO GO in person
and was a bit wet- my outer layer did not prove waterproof. My pants were wet. Seat mostly
I did not bring a change of clothes to church, only to work.
OK back to work
Another one of those gov cons with the whole freaking kitchen in it. NOT EVEN the whole kitchen sink.
Here is a fun read for yall: oh forget it I can't find the link in my history
But some academics ( three of them ) did a data analysis then study to try to figure out why the heck there is a pattern of all sorts of nonsense flowed down to a prime or subcontrator contract WHICH ARE NOT REQUIRED
I was looking up one particular provision I had a question about if it did flow down ( as one not seen hundreds of times ....)
BUT I verify that I am absolutely 100% accurate in my striking of nonsense that is meaningless (or try)
I was proved wrong once.
In the end they felt triumphant that I had LEFT IN a provision about use of ball bearings in building whatever...
OF course they were outside counsel. Paid by the minute...
I make fun/ made fun of that
BUT now I am paid same but TRY To not waste time over nonsense.
THIS Is important though (albeit tedious. and yes they pay me for something they might not understand the value of)
TRUST ME there is value.
Folks dont' know what requirements they agree to until someone wants to enforce them.
DISAPPOINTED!! Only two people were in this house other than me. Don't think the dog took it; don't suspect the kid not going anywhere who doesn't act like they have much anger at me.
Well the kid figured it out and is in Seattle with their friend.
Proud of this kid for following their dreams and believing in themself.
OH one more vent while here..
This is the STUPIDEST thing I have seen.
ANTHEM denied vaccinations for this kid as "not medically necessary"
GARDISIL and FLU
A $1400 bill arrived for the vaccinations and dr. visit to get them.
Unbelievable. I think two Gardisil shots.
That is a REQUIRED Vaccination now for all kids in school in VA
Took a while but after a while the religious right forgot about this... and were no longer worried GETTING the HPV vaccination would suddenly make 7th graders all go out and have sex
OR ENOUGH Of them had kids get cancer due to their parental incest...
Maybe some of their kids got cervical cancer.
In any case
It is ridiculous in my view that there was such backlash over vaccination for a known virus that is a leading cause of cervial cancer.
AND IRONIC that a couple of years ago I gave a Christmas gift to EACH family member of a donation in their name ( HA HA Not a great gift) To the Community Coalition of Haiti health clinic that is vaccinating women there, as Cervical cancer from HPV is the #1 KILLER of Hatian women ( so they said at the time.)
I had more money then.
IT was also a reminder card to all the kids
RESEARCH and you decide if you want to
get this freaking VACCINATION that your other parental unit objected to as a child
cause HPV is considered sexually transmitted and NO YOU ARE NEVER going to be at risk of getting an STD, right?
What the hell.
I am looking at a bill and once done with this work will call anthem and perhaps harness the most hisrotrionic helocopeter mom voice in the world and try to advocate
I can scream
(HA HA) HPV causes crazy cancer growth but it is not medically NECSSARY for my dependant ?
Do you want to cover the vaccine? OR risk paying for that down the road for this dependant ??
Just think about it.
Ridiculous the shit insurance won't cover. Flu vaccine also denied. What the hell? THis is a chronically ill person with asthma history and yes actually considered high risk. Just dumb
Makes me want to follow up with the Office of Civil Rights Attorney cause actually- they have a pending case of denial of services for this kid.
It was kinda on hold. Cause they were waiting on some Supreme Ct. Decisions- one of which was favorable and may make it worth moving forward on it.
Another denial of service. Same person-
HOWEVER not likely cause the insurance company will just give OTHER reasons for denial. Nonsense.
Feel better vented.
Some bullshit right there.
BUT the one gift I have tried to give all my kids is support with healthcare co pays. I did encouarge them all to go get that vax.
I will pay the darn bill to the Doctor as HER OFFICE should not be stuck with the cost of the vaccine just cause someone is transphobic and they are not covering basic care for my kid.
