In 2008 or so I was working for ACS Healthcare doing the re-design work for health.gov and healthfinder.gov — new Dell servers, some shit had been hacked by China, some other issues.
I was working out of SAMHSA’s offices in… fuck I don’t even know where, Rockville Maryland or something like that? I always called it Rocktropolis in my old blog.
I used to do rails of coke in SAMHSA’s office, which I thought was fucking HILARIOUS.
It might have just been the call center. Small world huh?
You probably don’t believe me, but I guarantee you anyone who knows me will be like, yeah, if anyone did that it would be that fucking queen.
For what it’s worth I carried a sack and was sniffing it everywhere, it’s not like SAMHSA was special.
Weirdest little known fact about the Department of Health is that it’s actually a separate branch of the US Military! They have uniforms and rankings and these cool skirts and stuff. They salute each other and then I guess they go down into some bunker where they get the missles ready to deploy on my ex boyfriend Will’s supergonnorhea.
I’m making that last part up.
The missles, not the supergonorrhea.
The kitty was aiight I’d still –
During the re-design there was a huge push to edit the content to a (sixth? eighth? fourth?) grade reading level. A couple of a people were copying and pasting articles manually from the old template to the new redesigned template.
So, yeah I know who and what they are and yo hablo un poco some evidence based approaches or whatever I guess.
I just remember someone casually handing me the article for alcoholism.
I finished that one.
Then they’d slide me the one for addiction.
So I finished that one.
Are you… tryna say something?
Fuck that’s so shady we should have been friends! 😭😭😭
And then I was asked to not return.
Story of my life. “What the fuck was he ON?”
*whips out the adding machine and starts punching buttons furiously*
Fuck!! What wasn’t I on? I don’t even know what’s in the trail mix!!!
I remembered them and included some info about them this time.
