License Plate of the Day: A Jetta: "VWATURE"
(Note: the French word for car is voiture.)

You know how I was complaining about being a failure the other day? Well tonight (of course, on my birthday) there was a major major outage the likes of which we don't see too often, and I was the only one here. The first 2 hours of my shift *literally* felt like 8. When the department manager came in at 3AM, I thought to myself that that made sense because surely it was 6AM by now. Anyways, the night goes on and I keep apologizing for whatever it is I must have done wrong, and finally he comes over to where I'm sitting all frazzled and loopy and tells me how excellent a job I do. How my judgement is always right and a few other things.

It doesn't make me feel like any less of a technical failure, but it helps assuage the pain of things not getting fixed expeditiously. Is that even a word?

Saw Goldmember at the cheapo theater. Gratified to know I recognized Matthew Sweet. Unimpressed with the movie as a whole. Cheapo theater made more creepy by the presence of the Popcorn-Guy-With-No-Fingers and the "Hey. You have the brightest hair I've ever seen." "Uh, Thanks" "I've never seen hair that bright." *STARE* guy. Overall the only advantages to the cheapo theater is that it's close and the two times I've been there have been maybe two other people in the movie.

heh, I considered coming along last night, but as I finish up work around 4:30 or even earlier these days, I was either going to have to work late or make the trip back over on a weeknight. :( I'm gettin' lazy these days.

I went to double-check the party details, but couldn't find my eVite reference. Will it send out reminders with the URL on it? :)

Thank you!!

I so wish Livejournal sent out emails like it used to.

I also was not soliciting by mentioning that. :)

I wish I agreed with him at all. Pretty good sometimes? Yes. Excellent? No way.

Thank you!

I didn't used to get the Leo thing, but I swear it makes more and more sense every day. Especially now that I spend alot of time with a Pisces. Gah!

Happy Birthday, a wee bit belated!

Not belated at all; if you left that at 6:50 as it said, you were actually in advance of my birthmoment.

Thanks either way. ;)

Oh no! You're not sick, are you? I often get sick when I fly. I always end up near the sickies who feel the need to sneeze or cough in my general direction.
Plus, you know, no immune system to speak of.
