Sea dragon

Just think - a forty hour work week!

I was walking into work (a whole half block from where Worthy Opponent dropped me off) and decided I looked like a poster for What Not to Wear. I'm not sure what it is about this shirt that makes me look like I'm built like a sack of potatoes but it sure does. And here I thought the long shirt was hiding my big butt! I'll check in over lunch with sallysimpleton and see if my analysis is correct. Of course, by the the time we're through with lunch at Sergio's, the question of whether or not my butt looks big will have to be answered in the affirmative for the rest of the day.

Hmm, look, something to read about creating online communities ... when I have time, that is.

Anime party time!

My Japanese schoolgirl costume fantasies are ready to come to life! You just don't think of JC Penney's serving the fetish market until you see stuff like this online ...

Marionette time

And now I'm told I may NOT get a full week in if we don't get more code tomorrow. Man! I really want to get a 40 hour week in! We could easily write test cases but we've been told we'll be getting them. Why do I get the feeling they'll be totally inadequate and only cover the new functionality that's in the spect and not the totality of the site we have to test?

Another man's poison

Man, this web site sure turned my stomach today. I'm so glad my brother's marrying someone with a level head on her shoulders and not some barbie doll who will think her life is over if there were cornhusks in her bridal bouquet. (Not that it wasn't a funny thought.) Sheesh!

Let's play - family feud!

After work tonight we're supposed to go to my brother's tonight to play board games and eat pizza - with my dad. It seems like it shouldn't be a big deal but the last time I saw him was the Big Blowout After Gramma's Funeral. I'm nervous. He's been an *hole to me nearly every time I've seen him in the last three years. Will today be any different? I'm hoping that out of the glare of the public eye he won't feel obliged to draw attention to himself, and if he makes a scene at least I'll feel like I'm surrounded by people that are basically very supportive - Worthy Opponent, my brother, and his girlfriend. I just hate the idea of having to walk out on him again - it's starting to raise my heart rate.
