If I didn't have this keyboard in the
way, I would be face-down on my desk right now.
I am incredibly, overarchingly tired
right now. It's 1:10 in the afternoon, and I could sleep all afternoon
and all night after that. Bruce, I'm not sure I'm gonna make it to
the DCNUG meeting tonight... I worry I'll fall asleep on US29 or something.
I am so, so tired.
I did finally get the signing done on
the papers for my home equity loan. That will pay off the car, a
couple of credit cards, and leave me a small pile of dollars with which
to do the septic when (not if) it lets go in the near future. I figured
I'd rather have the money now, before rates go up more, than have to chase
around finding financing when the toilet is glowing in the dark and emitting
sounds of caged monsters or something. As I said, it shouldn't be
this easy to borrow piles of money in America, but being the hassle-averse
person that I am, I am guessing it's for the best.
I am having a good time dealing with
some moron on Craig's List. I posted an ad the other day saying how
much I liked tall women, and this apparently-short (and definitely short
on intellect) foreign woman has been sending me abusive emails from a variety
of throwaway accounts since then. Network guy that I am, it's pretty
obvious that they're all the same person: bad spelling, confused
grammar that sounds like a bad question from the Scholastic Aptitude Test
or the TOEFL, and a very consistent source IP address. I've forwarded
them all on to Concentric and told them to rip her a new one when they
get a chance. I'm just waiting for her to screw up and post from
a work PC... I've gotten people fired for that shit over the years and
had absolutely zero sympathy for them. If you're going to shit on
the internet, do it from anywhere but your work PC. You aren't that
valuable to your employer.
Still, it keeps me amused, when stupid
people try to outwit me on the net. None shall pass!
