• Updating the resume

    by  • 2/1/2009 • life • 0 Comments

    Using some exceptionally helpful information I have found on a couple livejournal posts, I think it’s time to update the old resume again… I might just copy and paste chunks from the Cthulhu resume.

    I swear some of these entries should appear on my own resume, or I could see appearing on those of my past (current?) co-workers. The doing speed in the bathroom line item would be a co-worker I had back when I worked in the college computer labs.


    • As a enormous squid like being of huge power I am used to working with a wide variety of human resources and bending them to my will.

    • I have effectively managed huge hoards of treasure.
    • I have negotiated an agreement with savages whereby they sacrifice virgins in my honour during the summer solstice in exchange for my protection.


    • I can control the very nature of multi-dimensional spacetime itself.
