yo schizo, there is no need for maple syrup if you cook them long enough. this i promise.

a longer cook breaks down the pectin on the cell walls and the thing releases its own sugar, which caramelizes. they become supersoft and drippy with sweet.

just roast them a little longer/higher temp and you'll see the majicks. say 45' to 1h at 400F-- don't worry if it chars the ends a little. then add bacon instead mhuahahahahahahaha. (because it's already like a pancake.)

@ crayons - so where do you live now? didn't you go to montana or something? i forget.

I'm kind of hungry. I skipped breakfast this morning, not on purpose but just kind of forgot about it. Sucked down my coffee, left, and realized I hadn't eaten.

Thanks. I dislike milk. I love cheese, yogurt, other dairy products. I just can't do milk, for some reason.

When I skip breakfast, I start having cravings for red meat. Weird. I want a big burger right now.

But yeah, work. Ha!? I am coasting... . The big boss (the kid) and the little boss (her) both are trying to fill up my plate with projects, and what I'm keeping from them is I've already done most of this stuff, in anticipation of leaving, weeks ago! So, I'm like, "Sure, not a problem, I should have this to you by, oh, let's say..." and then I go back to my desk and surf. HA! So funny. "Gmku, can you give me a status update on your work with x. How's it going?" "Oh, great, I'm just checking on a few details, but no problem finishing this up. Should even have it early."

Also, both bosses are a little dumb about what I do. To them, updating or adding content to a web page seems like a big deal, something that might take hours, when in reality, I can get it done in minutes. Writing a short news release should take days and days in their eyes; I can do it in a few hours. So easy to pull the proverbial wool...

This morning, the new project was to figure out how to switch all my social media credentials over to someone else in the office. Really? This is a project? Changing log-ins and passwords? "Please handle and let me know when everything is transferred." You should have seen the astounded face when I reported back in 5 minutes. HA!

Yes, and bureaucracy is based in fear, isn't it? Fear of true creativity, of individuality, of non-productive time. I feel it here.

i've always avoided those places but my brother tells me tales of having worked at a place where he was able to do his work in a week that was allotted for a full months. there were people sitting next to him that had been doing things at the official pace ofr 25 years. he hated the place but used it to get his master's and then fucked off.

in nearly every job I have ever had, from corporate america, to private law firms, to academia, I see that 80% of the workforce gets paid to take up space, while 20% of the workforce actually works hard and does all the work, and gets paid the same as the ones that do jack shit.

This is all management 101, and taught in every MBA program. a drone that shows up every day and does middling work is m ore valuable to the bottom line than a worker who is devoted, slaves away, goes above and beyond in their duties. either way you get the same 3% cost of living raise (if you are LUCKY)

it's all a crock of shit.

how does this work exactly? surely the guy who works harder is more valuable?

because in corporate America employees are not treated as individual sources of quality work. They are cogs, pieces, to be switched and swapped around at the discretion of upper management. Whole departments can be dumped/fired/laid off solely because cost overruns have occurred in a different department. with this expendability ingrained in the workforce, requiring employees whose departure would not be critical to the actual functioning of the busienss. the search for REAL talent and hard work only occurs in very specified positions, things like "Director" or "VP of Finance". It is why hourly employes are treated like sheep to be herded, while salaried employees are treated like slaves to overwork.

the person that works harder is more valuable only to an employer that actually allows that employee to be invested in the work. most companies do not do this, saving their profit-sharing, stock options, performance bonuses solely for those in upper management. (the 20% of "actually valuable" employees.) a slacker "file clerk" will get paid just as much as a "hardworking" file clerk. Sometimes the hard work is noticed and appreciated (rare) but many times it is actually discouraged, because it creates tension among the drones.

Of course this is a generalization of sorts, but it has been my experience in all fields of work.

I worked hard in this job. Don't get me wrong. And I put up with a lot of pure nonsense. I'm just no longer motivated, as you can well imagine.

On a different note, I got that burger, and it was a nice burger, to boot. Organic Iowa grown beef, caramelized onion, cucumbers, and blue cheese. I kept things in balance by ordering a salad instead of fries, and water instead of a carbonated beverage.

My mother was let go from several jobs after we moved to US from Houston. She would be assigned duties, get them done in a few days, and be let go after being told that she was supposed to "stretch it out" so that the work would last a month.

This is standard practice in corporate america....

that's usually a union thing--"don't make the rest of us look bad"

elsewhere, people either get promoted or loaded with ever more work

corporate america is very veryu fond of "title promotions" which is where you are given a new title, more duties/responsibilities, and no actual raise. They justify it by saying you got a new title, which, IN THE FUTURE, will translate to higher wages. This is the normal structure in corporate USA. Instead of looking at how much you were paid in previous position, they look at your job title, compare it to the mean average of others with same title in the same geographical area, and base what your salary/wages should be off of that. exceedingly impersonal, and intended to function as collusion, keeping the drones wages low throughout the market...

of course the people in the higher management get 25% bonuses yearly, raises yearly, stock options yearly, and can justify their incomes by firing a thousand workers, thereby "saving" the corporation some money.

It is a massive shell-game con. Enron did it, got caught for it, and no one really gave a flying fuck about the thousands of low-level drones that lost their jobs, retirement savings, etc....

Well, this is true. I think I learned this lesson when I started working part-time as a college student. My first job was working in the men's department of an upscale department store. I'd get assigned the usual shit work in my shift, like folding sweaters, putting prices on things, etc., between helping customers. The manager would get tired of giving me new things to do because I'd get them done so fast. He never told me directly but I could see the exhaustion in his face as he tried to come up with more busy work for me. SO I slowed down, even left work for the next shift, and he started liking me much more.

Petroleum corporations are doing it right now. Prices for crude have gone down (although still high) so to not cut he wages/bonuses of the higher ups, they lay off thousands of low-level drones. They call this a "hardship" although the only people who suffer are all replaceable and will be replaced as soon as crude oil hits $90 a barrel again.... For the people up top flying ultra-first class Dubai airlines? Nothing changes, except they maintained the bottom line "profit" for their company.
