So tired.

I want to sleep until 10 like I do most Saturdays.

shadowdaddy woke up at 4:30 AM and couldn't really get back to sleep before 5, when he was intending on getting up to get ready for his taxi.

I went to sleep just a little later than usual (11:40) but the being awake in the middle of the night has left me so tired.

So tired. Aargh. Wish I wasn't working today. Going in anyway as, well, that's what you do when you say you're going to be into work, you go. Aaagh.

I can has not work now?

It is 5 PM and I am still at work. I am making double time, but, still. I am tired. It has been a long day and I am ready for it to be over.

This is funny if you're at work with me now (as opposed to the LOLYamory pictures, which are funny on their own):
So there's this thing you can do that brings down the website, and is basically normal behavior? HA HA HAH! (It's funny because it's true.)

Also this:
So there's a table that shows you 100 things? And if you have over 100 and try to add a new one you get an error? But if you delete one so there's more room, it pulls item 0 out of the database so you still really have 100 still because the DB doesn't limit how many were saved to it in the first place? (Really, this is total comedy.)

Shouted out: PCP looks good.
Response: That's TCPIP, you idiot! PCP is drugs!

Uh, in other news, people are remembering again that we've got an idiot in the White House, the question being how did they ever forget, but 911 didn't change MY opinion of him. From the NYT: "But this economic crisis has been going on for months, and all the president could come up with sounded as if it had been composed for a Rotary Club and then delivered by a guy who had never read it before. “One thing is certain that Congress will do is waste some of your money,” he said. “So I’ve challenged members of Congress to cut the number of cost of earmarks in half.”

"Besides being incoherent, this is a perfect sign of an utterly phony speech. Earmarks are one of those easy-to-attack Congressional weaknesses, and in a perfect world, they would not exist. But they cost approximately two cents in the grand budgetary scheme of things. Saying you’re going to fix the economy or balance the budget by cutting out earmarks is like saying you’re going to end global warming by banning bathroom nightlights."

Anyway, she goes on to just rip him a new one. I'm not sure who this Gail Collins is, but I think I might like her.

Lost and found

This morning got off to a bit of a bad start (apart from the lost sleep thing) when I realized I had lost my keys. I looked in

  • My bag
  • My pants pockets
  • My coat(s) pockets

    and on

  • the dining table
  • the living room table
  • the floor in the living room
  • the top of the chest of drawers
  • the floor near the couch

    and they were not to be found. I don't even remember the last time I had them. This got me especially down because last night I lost 20 quid somewhere between lunch and dinner (tube? corner shop) and, worst of all, my silver cartouche bracelet from Egypt appears to have taken a powder. At first I thought I had stuck in in a jewelry box, then I finally dug in all of them (some are very little), then, you know, the rest of the usual places. And thus the nicest thing I bought on my trip is lost and I am declared A Complete Loser.

    Anyway, I'm back home now, let in by wechsler and I just went rooting around in the nether regions of the couch in search of my keys. I found

  • a badge from the Tacoma Art Museum (TAM)
  • two pennies
  • a really cool Big Eyed Girl bookmark
  • two good pens
  • a credit card that expired six months ago (doh!)
  • a glasses case (God knows where that came from)
  • and my bracelet.

    No telling where the keys are but I can replace those, likely by building one out of all of the lint that also came out of the couch.
