Weirdness Ensues As Friday Approaches

So I get this e-mail out of nowhere… from some guy whose name I don’t recognize but he thinks he might know me. Now, it is entirely possible that I do know this guy and just don’t recall the name, we are talking about the swiss cheese of memories here. Still, ‘tis very strange. I did a web search on his name and the only connection I could find was that he’s on a lost alumni list on the University of Georgia’s website which also includes the name of someone I think I used to know on IRC. Not much to go on and definitely not enough of a kick in the pants for my memory. I think I’ll reserve further comment until I get a response.

In further news, my cousin is a dork. He mixed up the weekend that we were going to go to the Cake concert in Philly and planned a wrestling match on the same day. Where this newborn dedication to wrestling came from and how it could possibly be more important than his two dear cousins ;) I don’t know, but c’est la vie. We get to take the exchange student who’s staying with them instead and she’s fun, so his loss. ;) All the same, I’ll miss the chance to hang out with him since he’s a lot of fun. *grumble*

Well, I actually can’t think of anything that would be particularly interesting to anyone other than me at the moment so probably no one else will read this, but I’ll try to think of something better soon. Work has been both a mental bore and drain at the same time. (Neat trick, huh?) Now, time for “The Storm” on ER.

Bah, Javascript

I have to wonder why I find so many sites with Javascript errors through Blogger. Is it something about this type of service that draws people who don’t bother to at least load their page to test it? Footnote: I put “time” instead of “type” above. I must be losing it… or maybe my subconscious is trying to tell me it’s time to go to bed. Well, nobody ever said I liked taking advice.

Redemption

EDS has made up for their problems this week. They decided to pay us for all the time that we got sent home early. WooHOO!

Conspiracy Theory

AOL and Microsoft are out to get me… First AOL knocks me offline and now WinME is giving me no end of trouble. And don’t lecture me about either. I hate AOL but it’s all I have right now while I’m living at home, and WinME came with the computer and I don’t have anything better to put on it right now. *sigh* Anyway, time to watch ER and then head to bed.

What The Fuck?

I can’t believe this temp job. (I can’t believe I’m working as a temp, but that’s another story.) Freaking AT&T is dragging their feet on creating the IDs, so we keep getting sent home since there’s nothing to do. Not only that, but we have to wait around trying to “study” for four hours before they even decide to do that. But, I suppose I should stay with it, I don’t want to go around job hopping. Grrrrrrrrr…

Weekend Weary

It’s a funny thing about weekends. I have to decide between getting the sleep I’ve been daydreaming about all week at work and squeezing fun in to last me through the week of 7 a.m. alarms ahead. If I sleep then I don’t get to have fun and if I have fun then I don’t get enough sleep. As usual, I chose fun this weekend, so I’d better get to bed.

Riding In Cars With Boys: Decent movie, but too long. It also seemed a little too easily solved in the end. Despite that, it was cute and warm and fuzzy.

New Musical Experiences

I normally don’t go for the heavy rock sort of music that 105.7 plays anymore, but I told my sister I’d go with her to see this band that she said she liked. It was a concert featuring local bands and I didn’t much care for the first bands that played so I wasn’t holding out too much hope for this, the last band. However, I was pleasantly surprised. Julian Fist, although still not my favorite type of music, was surprisingly fun to listen to. I suggest you check out their website. :)

Hrm

I can’t believe that I ignored my web page for 5 months. I’d do something with it now, but it’s been a long week of getting up early, and I promised my neighbor I’d take her dog to agility class tomorrow so I need some sleep.

American Gods by Neil Gaiman… Read it.

Lessons Of Last Weekend

  1. Massachusetts drivers are not as bad as people say.
  2. NYC drivers are every bit as awful as the stories.
  3. NYC is just as confusing as I thought it would be to drive in.
  4. Likewise for Massachusetts.
  5. Driving through NYC at 1 a.m. is great… if you don’t have anywhere to be the next day.

Of course, I still had fun. Too bad the rest of the week sucked.
