Why Don't I Post More Often? Saturday, October 20, 2007, 12:38 AM

Almost six months since my last post. What have I done in the past six months?

  • Typed ":)" 3859 times. Oh wait, 3860 times.
  • Saw the future in the smile of every child.
  • Watched this for about three of the months.

Top of the Mornin' to Ya Wednesday, April 25, 2007, 9:14 AM

This is how messed up my normal work schedule is. I got in to work at about 8:30 AM this morning. A few minutes later, one of our QA folks saw me and asked with a very surprised look on her face, "You're still here?"

For the record, the latest I've ever stayed at work is 8 AM. 8:30 AM? Now that would just be crazy.

I'd like to share a conversation that I had at Costco a couple days ago while waiting in line for a super-cheap pizza:

Me: Why, hello there, little-boy-standing-behind-me-whose-mom-is-not-paying-attention-to-him.
Boy: Hullo mistar-man.
Me: Whatcha doing?
Boy: Wiping snot and boogers all over my fingers.
Me: Excellent, what is the purpose of this action?
Boy: So I can rub it all over the back of your jacket. *rub* *rub*
Me: *shocked*
Boy: *rub* *rub*
Me: *snotted*
Boy: *rub* *rub*
Me: *totally confused (by) all the passing piranhas*
Boy: *rub* *rub*
Me: *confused and scared, begin to rub my own snot all over little boy*
Mom: íNo se moleste!
Me: Uh, hello mom-who-just-now-started-paying-attention (immediately after your son stopped snotting me up, but while I am still showing him that he can have a great career as a kleenex when he grows up).
Mom: *pulls back boy*
Me: Sorry! Let me explain, mom-whom-I-will-very-soon-find-out-is-an-off-duty-policewoman.
Mom: *taser*
Me: *tasered*

And that is why I am writing this from cell block A4, while Butch is deciding whether I get to use jelly or syrup. I'm hoping for jelly.

FREEDOM! Thursday, April 5, 2007, 12:01 AM

My team at work hit our last major deadline for this release at the beginning of this week, which means, after nine incredibly long months, I'm free. That means I finally have time to work on my startup idea: Matchwire.com! It's half Match.com and half Hotwire.com. You enter your dating preferences, we find a suitable person for you, and then you're required to marry him or her.

I rEaLlY hAtE iT wHeN pEoPlE tYpE iN aLtErNaTiNg CaPs.

One thing I'll miss about working those long hours is that since the company won't be feeding me anymore, I'll have to start cooking again.
