Revenge of the Sith

For what it's worth I think the official Episode III title is totally cool.

A guy walks into a doctors office with a carrot in his ear and a piece of celery up his nose. The doctor told him he wasn't eating right.

MTS just hit me with a reminder that I sorely needed: I might have to fill out TPS reports, but at least I don't work for cultists. And I don't ever have to work on order.pl ever again.

Wrong again

My thought that the week was going to get better came to a screeching halt today, for totally different reasons than before. There are times that I really hate my job, and today is one of them.

Close call

Yesterday sucked but it's over. Nothing else happened to me and I think I'll survive, but that sure was a crappy day all around. Brendi managed to remind me that I have friends I can count of if I need them, which picked me up a lot.

Some days just suck

Today sucks. I keep waiting for something else really screwed to happen to me. I'm stressed out beyond belief. I can't concentrate at all. It's a good thing I'm ahead at work. I just want to scream right now.

Ed Silva, Evil Genius

Results from this personality test:

Wackiness: 32/100
Rationality: 38/100
Constructiveness: 50/100
Leadership: 44/100

You are an SEDF--Sober Emotional Destructive Follower. This makes you an evil genius. You are extremely focused and difficult to distract from your tasks. With luck, you have learned to channel your energies into improving your intellect, rather than destroying the weak and unsuspecting.

Your friends may find you remote and a hard nut to crack. Few of your peers know you very well--even those you have known a long time--because you have expert control of the face you put forth to the world. You prefer to observe, calculate, discern and decide. Your decisions are final, and your desire to be right is impenetrable.

You are not to be messed with. You may explode.

The Lone Ranger and Tonto were camping in the desert. After they had set up their tent, they laid down for a restful night. After a few hours, the Lone Ranger wakes his faithful companion. "Tonto, look up in the sky and tell me what you see." Tonto replied, "Me see millions of stars." The Lone Ranger asked, "What does that tell you?" Tonto pondered the question for a minute. "Astronomically speaking, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo. Time wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, it's evident that the Lord is all powerful and we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you, Kemosabi?" The Lone Ranger stared silently at his friend for a moment, then said, "Tonto, you idiot! It means someone has stolen our tent!"

Passage of time

I've been modifying my webcam application to keep old images so I can make a time lapse movie of the images. Here's July 5 to July 14.

Here's a haiku I made up at Vicki's parents:

A bazillion
Little birdies chirp too loud
Wake me up early

Sitting at O'Hare

We're sitting at the gate, waiting on our flight to Washington. I'm glad I can at least get online here through my GPRS account. We got up at 4AM and it's starting to catch up to me. Maybe I can grab a cat nap on the plane.
