Out of the Blue

Well, I'm happy to have avoided turning this into a late update. I was playing online with the boys last night and I one more gamed myself into a super-late bedtime. It's just tough to quit sometimes when you're on a really hot winning streak. I'm guessing I'll pay the price at some point, but I managed to get going this morning on a ridiculously small amount of sleep. Time to fire up some more coffee.

Okay, the only MEGA AWESOME acronym LEO that I know is Low Earth Orbit.

Well said, but I gotta admit I'm mighty curious where you work. Because the only acronym of LEO that I know is Low Earth Orbit.

HAH, these were all great. I wish I could say it stood for Low Earth Orbit and that I was hanging out in my ship circling the earth while I study you humans. Yes, I am an alien.... Who visits Blues News on a daily basis since 2000 =)

Serious note, it means law enforcement officer. Been at it for 10 years and have 20 more to go. I know it’s not the most popular job these days in the news. I like to think I'm one of the good ones.

Side note, you wouldn’t believe how hard it is to find a PC gamer in law enforcement. I'm surrounded by console gamers and people who honestly didn’t know other games existed beyond the COD / Battlefield franchise. I mention games we all grew up on such as C&C, MechWarrior, Warcraft, Myth The Fallen Lords (personal favorite) and they all stare at me blankly, saying "did they come out on the original Xbox??".
SIGH
I never wanted to do this job in the first place! I... I wanted to be... A LUMBERJACK! Leaping from tree to tree! As they float down the mighty rivers of British Columbia! With my best girl by my side! The Larch! The Pine! The Giant Redwood tree! The Seq
