So nice to have a change of scenery. Finally have all my things moved into my shiny new office at UCLA, and, I have to admit, I'm really rather excited. Fresh faces, new colleagues, I think it should be a wonderful good time.

Well. As wonderful as lecturing a room of idiots morons twenty-somethings who hardly pay attention can be.

Well, this ain't so difficult. I'm more used to having my hands in cars, but I picked up this old PC and it's running pretty smooth. Magic hands.

I'm Hellboy Bruttenholm, but most call me Red. They assume Hellboy is a joke. I'm a private detective, but more Frank Drebin than Sam Spade right now. I also do some mechanic work, some bodyguard work, and I got about a hundred kids that need re-homing. That sounds freaky. They're cats, it's fine, they're all strays and they just need homes.

I debated retiring recently, but then I realized I'd be really very bored. So that's straight out. I could use a few more hobbies, though. Knitting or something.

I never thought I'd say this, but I think I need a break from following politics. Just a little one.

Well, I caved and got myself a cat. He's a bit of an unpredictable thing, but I've named him Sebastian. Looks a bit like a small, domesticated tiger, but seems to think he's a large, wild tiger.

I'm torn between fondness and irritation.

I literally don't bloody know how to handle this heat. It's fucking overwhelming is what it is.

He says, as he drinks his morning pot of coffee. At 1 PM.


You know what? Don't judge me, there's important and then there's important.

I've been saddled with intro level stats courses for the spring and summer semesters. I'm so pleased.

Here's a word of advice to all of you still in college or university: don't save your requirements until the very end. Get them out of the way. Your professors do not enjoy staring into your blank faces anymore than you enjoy listening to them. We would all rather be doing something else.

Fortunately, my TAs have far more patience than I do. It's still going to be a long couple of months.

I passed the test. I'm going to be a police officer. I start on Monday.

Thanks to everyone who helped me study or was just there for me in general. I appreciate it.

I grew up in Portland, Maine, but somehow, I never became aware of the North American Wife Carrying Competition that was annually held in Newry, about two hours away. Apparently a couple wins the wife's weight in beer, and five times her weight in cash.

I do accept that that's a substantial weight of cash. It might be the only sport I can see a point in, though I'm not sure I'd try it myself. ... I mean, I have no wife, but still.

Why is it that everyone seems so genuinely surprised at whatever fresh hell this place dishes up? I've barely lived her a month and I'm already jaded.

It's strange - out of all of the horrendous and life shattering things that have happened to us here in Orange County this is the one thing that is causing more people to question their beliefs. Our membership at the church is up this month and the viewership has been at an all time high.

It is official. As of today, I am finished with my job. For this quarter, at least. Any students of mine who would like to know their final grades don't even have to wait until the twenty-first. I will tell you right now, if you'd like to know.

Hello everybody.

A colleague of mine told me about this board. It's really nothing more than a vague sense of bored curiosity that brought me here, but I must say, you all lead wonderfully absurd lives. Consider my curiosity slightly piqued.

Also, I'm Jim. How wonderful to get to know you all.
