Dylan Cuffy10,308#WhatLiesAground Well...you've been waiting for days, so I'll give it to you now.Welcome to the final edition of what I now dub the Fab 500! Time to say hello (and happy Easter) to this bunch of fine folks. Eleven here, not the usual ten, because someone's account went bye-bye without a word:• +Louie Baur, +Empire Avenue stalwart; ask for him whenever you want aerial views of your car dealership• +Alexander Moschella, a furry who also thrives on +Fiverr• +Juan Reyes (poet hailing from Texas; not that +Juan Reyes, our last milestone man. Thanks, +A Long!)• +Karen Woodward (yet another lit geek; thanks, +Sarah Brown!)• +Philippe TREBAUL (circled through an Empire mission)• +Domenico Mallimo (who had another milestone of his own—15,000 followers—the other day)• +Chris Voss (who recently gave FB users a compelling reason to switch to G+ or elsewhere)• +Kenneth Burchett (follower #10,000 of mine; also, a spot in my Marigot Magic dedication)• +Ray Hamlet (Dominica's second-best on G+)• +Angie Person (another Caribbean user, this time from Aruba; thanks, 2014-04-20 21:55:195001012
Dylan Cuffy9,742#WhatLiesAground  (originally posted March 29)Ten more followers till this Fab circle is done. Say hello to +Brandon Leibowitz and the others I don't have time to remember (since I added them many weeks ago). If Jingles says "mentioned in post", then you're already there. Enjoy your night, fellows!NEXT UPDATE: 500 followers, ETA sometime in early April.2014-03-30 00:00:09490308

Dan Thompson2,147Here is my circle of writers.  My suggestion to you new G+ folks is to add the entire circle as its own circle, i.e. "Dan's Writing Circle".  Over time, move your favorites over into your own growing array of circles.In particular, though, I'd say pay attention to John Ward, Evo Terra, Nathan Lowell, Brook Johnson, and Jefferson Smith.2014-02-22 19:51:53249212

Brittany Constable3,838You know, I haven't seen any NaNoWriMo shared circles going around yet.  Perhaps communities have made them a little redundant, but this is still one of my favorite things about the Plus, so I'm sharing away.The people in this circle have all either mentioned NaNoWriMo in posts or comments, or are in the NaNoWriMo 2013 community.  Please let me know if you:- are not in this circle and should be (this is the one time of year I'll circle anyone and everyone as long as they're doing NaNo)- are in the circle and shouldn't be- are doing NaNo, but would not like to be included in shared circlesA note about adding large circlesIn the past, I've added WriMos to both the NaNo circle and the general writers circle.  This has proven a mistake, since a lot of people who pipe up enthusiastically during November later disappear off G+, or just don't prove a good fit for my stream, and it leaves me spending a lot of time doing circle maintenance.So what I'm doing this year, and what I'd recommend others do as well, is add new people only to this circle (if they're not already in other circles) and keep the volume turned all the way down.  Then you can go to the separate stream and check people out, adding only the people you want to keep around to other circles. In a couple of months you can empty out the NaNo circle and clear out all the people who didn't make the cut.2013-10-23 17:06:17401404

When I started out, it was all about engagement, I did not expect so many friends! (I may have missed some people here due to oversight, please just comment and I will rectify it. No sleight is intended).Thank you all for being who you are and for the wonderful time on Googleplus!!

Dylan Cuffy2,404#WhatLiesAground Speaking of +Jens Graikowski, the circle showcase continues.You are now looking at The Chosen 44, a special group of people I rounded up on G+ back in February. To reiterate from the post that first introduced them, this is a circle of more-or-less active people and profiles whom I've followed for ages.I had only one purpose to use this circle in the first place: to show them some screencaps from "Mouse Warming", a 1952 Looney Tunes short so obscure that it was hard to get until much recently (when Warner Bros. included it in their Mouse Chronicles collection on DVD). This, for a rodent romance directed by none other than the talented Chuck Jones himself!Sad to say, that project's stalled out practically ever since I posted the credits. Maybe by tomorrow I'll resume it at long last--if we can get an alternative audio jack on the CPU working. But we shall prosper eventually!That's not all, folks! Tomorrow, you'll get to meet my Top 10 most relevant accounts on G+, and also some of the circle networks I rounded up at the start of the year.(To those in this circle: If you see "shared directly" with this message in your notifications, that means you're already included right here.)2013-05-31 16:38:4244102

Brad Leclerc28,193I haven't shared a circle in a while, and since I seem to have a flood of new circlers lately, I figure now might be a good time to get back into the habit. Starting with this circle of 150~ awesome people, which I have named my "Inner Sanctum".They post on a wide range of topics, from gaming, to science, to writing, to politics (across the spectrum, so you might not agree with everything they all say), to movies, to saucy photos, and everything in between. There are even a few slightly more well known and/or celebrity types in here, though they're all fairly active about posting, and interacting in general).They all really have only one thing in common: they make my G+ stream epic.You really can't go wrong with this circle. Trust me on that.2013-05-09 05:33:39151629

Vago Damitio8,732Creative Circle #3 of 11Creative Circle 1 of 11I am so impressed and enthused looking at the MicroVictoryArmy Stream  that I'm going to do something radical. I"m going to share my other circles, invite the members to join MVA, and then I'm going to delete all those circles so I can give more attention here.  I will keep  one circle of people like the +Dalai Lama  and +Richard Branson  who I would love to have join MVA but I don't want to lose track of if they don't. And that's it.  The Micro Victory Army is Victorious in my Circles and if you join - so are you. https://plus.google.com/communities/100245247140773385767  #microvictory  for figuring out how to enjoy G+ and manage my circles better! I'm about to delete you (unless you are in MVA - it's not personal - I still love you)2013-01-12 23:16:11146001

Lacerant Plainer11,919My 'Awesome Engagers' CircleAlso sometimes called my 'VIP Circle'... Highly recommended folk with some extent of tech / geekiness / science / art and photography chops. But more importantly, people who I think are worth following. Their content is always great, engaging with them is a pleasure!Some of them don't even have me in their circles, but they are totally worth it! try adding this as an evaluation circle and see the awesomeness in your stream!If you want to see why some of them are added, follow the hashtag! Share this if you like the circle :) #lacerantplainerscircles  2012-10-27 03:43:342911132750
Ben Moody0My current #nanowrimo  circle. If you notice you're in here and shouldn't be let me know and I'll remove you. Mostly sharing this out so that people who are building huge circles like  me to watch others in their mad dash can snag it if they want to. This one started a bit ago from the circle +Sarah Rios shared out and I've been adding to it since. Also, if you want to be added to the circle let me know. I'll likely reshare it Nov. 2nd ( I need to get a good start on Nov. 1st :p ) if I get more than 10 or so more people into it by then :)2012-10-26 13:33:07418506

This song is just so full of... happy. I can't think of any other word to describe it. Happy.

So I'll share some of that happy with all of you. I hope you enjoy it. <3

This is what I'm currently listening to.

This song is just so full of... happy. I can't think of any other word to describe it. Happy.

So I'll share some of that happy with all of you. I hope you enjoy it. <3

I have a desire for mini shredded wheats now. With the frosting. Has to be with the frosting. I'll also accept it with cinnamon. Because cinnamon.

Actually, I'd take pretty much any cereal someone offered me. I won't be picky. There's none in the house. I'd even take raisin bran right now.

Screw this, I'm going to bed for a while, after which I will get up and work for a while.

Had a semi productive day. Not as much done as I wanted, but hopefully I'll get in gear after my nap.

Draining the pool really screwed me up mentally. The sound was all in the house, and it was a constant drone, and it was ultra distracting AND annoying.

Starting my morning finishing up notes on character arcs for +Ellis Morning; after that, I'm going to settle down for some drafting. Once that's done, I have edits for myself and +Michelle Mogil to attend to.

Going to be a really busy week, but I'm planning on having 4 glorious hours of play time playing a computer game I quite enjoy tonight.

Good morning. Pool is draining so workers can close it tomorrow. I broke a bucket, and thus ended up with a drenched leg and shoe full of yicky nasty water. Yicky, nasty cold water.

Once I get a drink, it'll be time for me to get to work. Got a lot going on on my plate today.

Thanks, Japan... I am now obsessed with the concept of milk stew, and thus have started adding cream to many types of stews and soups to see what would happen.

You're fucking brilliant. Thanks.

... My freezer is making abnormal noises. My very full freezer, which has a good deal of food in it.

I am not sure I can rank my level of unhappy if it proves to be broken, seeing as it would involve an emergency trip to some form of store tomorrow to buy a chest freezer (or two) small enough to fit in my car.

Curse you, +kat Folland for infecting me with this horrid five things about me virus from the depths of hell.

1: I can't play guitar or piano to save my life, but I've somehow convinced myself if I acquire the funds or someone loves me, I will learn how to play the cello or harp... even if it results in my premature balding. Bonus: I've been fascinated with harps since I was little. Cellos are a recent obsession.

2: I had a boyfriend, once upon a time, who thought I had purple eyes. Sometimes I giggle to myself and wish I really did have purple eyes. (Violet, to be exact.) My real color is boring blue.

3: My mother loves fishing, and used to bring home live bait before fishing ventures. One day, she came home with an eel bucket with the survivors, who were going to be used the next day. One of the eels was a baby. I screamed, yelled, threw an epic temper... more »

One of the eels was a baby. I screamed, yelled, threw an epic temper tantrum, stole the bucket, and swore all sorts of nasty things on her if she killed the baby eel. Lucky, at the time, was less than five inches long. I'd peg him at all of three inches... SO CUTE. He didn't stay cute, though...

 When we released him into the wild, he was almost two or three feet long. (Yes, we released him into a river with native species of his type after we ensured he understood how to hunt live food. He was too large to keep, and we couldn't find an aquarium to take him.)

We saw Lucky the following year. I mean, because, what other eel in the area near where we lived was that freaking massive? I loved that eel. I visited him every day for years... I was sad when we had to release him.

4: I had never seen a sturgeon until I caught one from the river nearby. He was all of maybe twelve inches long, and was probably the cutest damned thing I had ever seen. P.S.: I thought I had caught a shark. A prehistoric shark. A prehistoric shark of AWESOME. I wanted to take it home, but my husband informed me that a: we did not have a suitable tank for him and b: he would eventually grow tens of feet long and we couldn't keep him.

We let him go.

5: I once landed a forty pound carp. At the time, I weighed 116 pounds. It took me almost an hour to land, and by the time I finally got him to shore, I locked my line and walked backwards the final twenty feet because I was THAT tired. I now hate carp fishing, because who the hell wants to spend an hour reeling in an underwater submarine?!

P.S.: I got a certificate for it because it was that damned big.

P.P.S:: I ate him out of revenge.___

Oh man, Oh man, that was divine, now I'm full and my mouth and throat and tummy are burning with the fires of hell and it is glorious.

I grew those peppers!! and dried them myself. It was a beautiful work of the arts.

May die happy as a result.

I did manage to get some work done today, but not a lot... tomorrow I'll do better?

(I"ll try to work some more tonight too.)

(Maybe.)

(No, not really.)

(Oops.)

I made words appear, and I've made my dishwasher gobble up two loads of dishes.

I'm not feeling motivated, nope, not at all. I'm feeling like a nap, really... or tacos.

Fortunately, I can do the taco thing. It'll be glorious. I got refried beans, I'll be making rice, I have a tomato and onion and garlic and delicious spices... and some lettuce, because salad.

I just have to wait for my dishwasher to finish so I have all of my weapons for my dinner. Mhmm. It'll be amaaaazing.

I'm making wonderful delicious taco-type things for dinner tonight! Husband is going out so I have the house to myself. Going to clean when I'm not doing writing work. I'm not feeling too terrible, and I got my new batch of medication so I shouldn't be in toooo much pain.

This weekend I'll be warming up to get back into the super awesomely productive work week.

(Because I've had focus problems the past few days.)

Good night, internet. I'm going to bed. Got a lot of work to do tomorrow, and I'm hoping I'll feel better in the morning so I can do it.

My goal is to edit a few chapters, get notes back to Ellis, proof a few chapters, and do some drafting (because all work and no play makes RJ cranky.)

I also intend to spend at least 2 hours goofing off having fun.

This is a beautifully written commentary on the state of internet providers today in North America.

TL; DR
Time Warner's business model has expired, but they're tenaciously sticking with it to the bitter end. Today I called and cancelled.

Hello +Time Warner Cable,

As you are the only cable company in this area, we've been doing business for many, many years. In that time, I think I've learned a lot about you, and the way you do business.

Like many businesses these days, you invest heavily in marketing and advertisement, to lure people to become a new customer. And like many others, once you have them, you forget about them. Or rather, once a person chooses to do business with you, that's when you begin treating them as a number or an adversary.

It seems your business model is to offer low promotional rates on a wide variety of products and services, then raise each of these rates over time. Often, you'll offer something for free, to give your customer a chance to try something, then hit them with charges later. I imagine the charges are laid out in fine print, or even right there in bold, implied, like "Only TEN dollars for first 6 months!" or "Free for 30 days!"

It's not that you're doing anything wrong or illegal. But I think most people like to feel they are being treated fairly and respectfully, as though we matter. Many smaller businesses thrive by "exploiting" those feelings. I know of one extremely large retailer that actively takes advantage of this by greeting customers on arrival. They make many other compromises, but acting like people matter isn't one of them.

So it isn't scandalous to treat your customers like an uninterrupted source of revenue. We are, after all. But once in a while, we might grow tired of playing a game where the rules change over time. This one, or that one, may take their ball and go home.

This shouldn't surprise you, but you're no longer the only game in town. +Verizon FiOS is offering TV now, as well as better ISP and a real phone. There's +DIRECTV and +DISH out there. Not to mention all the streaming services. +Netflix is an excellent service, AND their customer service and tech support are amazing. +HBO Watch (?) has announced that direct streaming is coming next year. The networks, ALL of them, offer workarounds to cable. And your "uptime"? In my area, it's terrible. Embarrassing!

Word is getting out! Your monopoly is over. So why, today, are you still behaving like we don't matter?

I think it's because we don't. The money still flows in, you can just raise rates if revenue drops.

So when I called today to see if you had any solutions to my problems, your reaction was worse even than I expected. Choosing "disconnect" from the voice recognition prompts cause your phone menu to "back to top". Asking the agent for help got me transferred to Central America...? South America...?. I'm not sure, she was very difficult to understand. But I wonder how the +Time Warner Cable service is at her house? Anyways, she spent entirely too much time offering a $20 promotion. Another promotion! It's not her fault, I doubt she was able to understand what my objections are. Then she says I have "3 business days" to return my your equipment to the local office. But she doesn't know whether that's Tuesday or Wednesday. No offer to send someone out? You can't be bitter...

You think customer retention would be a bigger priority. Sure doesn't seem that way. Better increase that advertising budget...

See you Tuesday +Time Warner Cable!___This is a beautifully written commentary on the state of internet providers today in North America.

I'm drinking tea, feeling kinda miserable, bleary eyed, hacking out yickies from my throat, and generally feeling bleh.

There's no way I'm making work heroics happen today, so my goal is to do as serious of work as I can for 4 hours tonight while my husband is busy doing something. My goal, 2,000 words or 1 chapter proof read/edited.

Anything over that is a bonus.

Seriously, life, this was not an appropriate time to get sick. No wonder I've been off the past few days.

Not... good.

Logically, I should rest, enjoy myself, rest, sleep, sleep, rest some more (I spent all day sleeping thus far today.) and just... accept the fact my deadline just got pooched a little.

My ARC deadline, but... eh. Granted, if I have 2-3 really good work days next week, I can somewhat catch up. I think I'll do that.

Been a rough week. :(

Once I get back to the computer, though, I'm going to own my work and show it who is boss >.<

I had a lovely nap. Time to see if I can be nicely productive for the rest of the evening.

I was originally supposed to go out on Saturday, but I'm going to stay home and work.I feel like I have to fight a bit to get back into the habit of work after the holiday. That, plus I think I fought off a sickness.

My mom fell victim to it today, likely a gift from my sister. I have dodged the bullet!!

I did feel a bit off yesterday, though, which may explain my non-productive day.

I'm making a to-do list for tomorrow to make up for today's day off.. I guess I needed it. Family visiting doesn't equate to any time off.

Tomorrow will be all sorts of productive, spurred on by the guilt and panic I'll surely feel then when I realize I squandered a bunch of perfectly good time. ;p

(This is me singing the non-productivity song. What? You mean I'm not supposed to be playing this browser game? Nonsense.)

Okay, I'm going to just say screw this; I'll do a partial day today, and start work at around 6 or 7... whenever husband gets home from work.

I'm doing a lot of electro therapy on my arm today, which kinda hurts, so my concentration has gone to hell. I used up a LOT of brain power yesterday, and I'm feeling under the weather.

So, I'm going to let myself guilt-free mentally wander until this evening, and then I'll work like I mean it.

I need to do work today, but I feel so damned sluggish thanks to the allergy fit from yesterday.

I'm having trouble stringing more than one or two thoughts together. I'm gonna drink this tea (I didn't screw it up this morning!!) and give it an hour before I try to get anything productive done.

I have a pet spider named Bob. I'm not a fan of spiders, but Bob has stayed in his window, eating bugs, and I haven't had the heart to displace him.

That, plus I named him Bob. He's a pet now, albeit the strangest freaking pet I've ever owned.

I'll post a pic of Bob soon.

Would you be surprised if I told you something ELSE is wonky at my house? I'm not! I'm not!

But it looks to be something the electric company may be responsible for...

I hope. >.<

So I got an electrotherapy thing for my back... and holy crap the bugger works. It surprises me how well it's been helping the spasm unlock. It's also been helping my elbow quite a bit too.

+Ellis Morning True, humorous story... you've done something in the manuscript that has me (comically) climbing up a wall. It's absolutely hilarious. Expect a bunch of silly commentary at the point where a certain O man and a certain J gal are heading to the H place. (How to not spoil in public, me style.)

Okay, I just made a cup of tea, forgot the tea, and was wondering why the tea wasn't turning, well, tea colored.

Riiigght. I do this sometimes.

Today is going to be a long day. Doing ten pages of edits for +Ellis Morning before taking a break, and will repeat this until done the novel. After I finish her edits, it's back to work proofing and doing things of that nature.

Tomorrow I'll take for me and my work, and then I'm going to start hauling tail rotating between three different client edits. It's going to be a crazy busy week.

And yes, I'm making sure I take 20-30 minute fun breaks between each session of work so I don't go insane. :)

Heeey, I'm moving up in the world. A top 150 reviewer on amazon approached me about reviewing books.

Boooyah. (I've done this as a reviewer, but it's a first for people actively approaching me, especially when I don't know them.)

I need to get used to the fact that no matter what I do, there will be a certain number of people who simply will never like me. More importantly, I need to stop caring that they don't like me; nothing I do will change their opinion of me, and I shouldn't allow this to get under my skin.

In short, while there are things I need to improve on in terms of being a nice person and someone who plays nice with others, there are those I will never, ever get along with... and their opinion of me makes absolutely zero difference on who I am.

I gotta learn to just let this shit go, forget about these individuals, and cease caring about those who don't like me, even if I'd like to like them. Friends are a two way street... and me going one way doesn't help me.

And I need to cease feeling guilty whenever I don't get along with someone, because it makes absolutely... more »

+Ellis Morning ... So, it's technically thanksgiving, my husband is home from work, and I'm slackassing. I probably won't finish today, but tomorrow for certain.

(In my infinite wisdom, I kinda forgot today was a holiday, and that my husband might want to do things with me... oops.)

My Mom got a bit of a culture shock when she came up here. I live in a part of town where it is very common to see women wearing head coverings. We went to the pharmacy, and one of the girls has seen me quite often, and is very friendly.. so when she saw me, she looked really happy and said hello, and the usual stuff people who are acquaintances and like each other do.

My mother was a bit culture shocked by how friendly both girls were. She's... used to those near Baltimore, where feelings are not so kind and generous, apparently.

Amusingly enough, most of her racism went away for the rest of the day as she chewed on just how friendly and happy the two ladies were. (And yes, they were of Middle Eastern descent.)

I have no idea how I got to be so accepting of other cultures and people. My mother is not.

I'm so excited! I really wanted to give my mom something really nice for Christmas. I had saved money to get her a really nice present.

She kept saying no. She didn't want to go to Baltimore on her own at night.

So, she's on the phone with one of her friends, who freaked and wanted to see +ThePianoGuys -- I couldn't get her gold circle seats, but I did manage to snag a pair of left oorchestra seats at the Meyerhoff. The price wasn't bad, and I had already saved up for such a present for her.

Mom also tried to pay for the present. She was denied. I've been saving money every pay to be able to buy her something for xmas, so I'm really, really happy she decided to go, because she'll really love the concert. And she'll get to go with a friend, so even better!

All-in-all, I'm really happy that worked out. I'll just work a little harder to make up the money. (It was a little extra debt on my credit card I really did not mind adding for her, because it's very hard to get her to accept any form of gift.)

Glorious day!! GLORIOUS DAY!!___
