Now that I have a job and a start date, I'm able to end my Job Seekers Allowance claim.

Oh my word, these people are not prepared for people to actually get a job. At my initial interview they went into great detail about how I'd be penalised for not seeking work. When she asked if I had questions I said yes, what do I do when I find work? It wasn't something they felt they needed to cover.

I went in today and it was like I was from another planet.

April 24: Apple Watch turns 9!

I remember how the two weeks from preorder to release felt like an eternity! I was beyond excited for its launch and still consider the Apple Watch one of my favourite Apple products for all the little ways it helps me throughout the day.

@BasicAppleGuy Been on board since “Series 0”; currently loving my Series 9. It’s somehow both nearly invisible yet somehow gets used a thousand times a day. Nearly perfect. (Yes, I have very minor gripes; such is life when a company raises expectations this high.)

Home in Vermont as of midafternoon, after 6 days on the road including very fun family sojourns through Gros Morne and PEI.

I had imagined that driving back would feel less confusing for my brain and body than flying does.

It did not.

@jordinn “Sack-ville” just like it looks. Which @hannu_ikonen finds hilarious, apparently. 🤣 Mount Allison students used to call it Bagtown, but I am the very definition of out-of-touch.

Sounds like you had the full NB Experience. Hahaha #DriveRightThrough #GTFO

Speaking of former Mt A students… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6zoXjHNCi0

@CStamp You must be referring to the old Cole’s Island Cut-off, as it was called. It shaved 30–40 minutes off the Moncton–Fredericton drive, but you were taking your life in your hands. That was 25 years ago, though. The new, twinned highway is so much better.

Yes; New Brunswick, famous for its many tourist attractions similar to checks notes Windsor Castle and the Palace of Versailles… 🙄 “N.B. tourism minister defends pricey trip to United Kingdom, France” | CBC News https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/new-brunswick/tammy-scott-wallace-defends-yennah-hurley-trip-1.7182459

@amerpie That the minister would defend this on the floor of the legislature is astounding. This is the boss falling on their sword to defend an underling. That’s not how this normally plays out.

@tantramar@nojack.easydns.ca avatar

@harold @amerpie Doesn’t he usually appoint people like that directly to cabinet? Say… Minister of Health?
