Random Rambling
  • I was extremely pissed off at someone for a week or so.  Now I'm over it.  Just thought you should know.
  • Marvin the Martian is cross-eyed. How did I never notice that before?
  • I went to the new eye doctor yesterday.  He bumped my prescription up ever so slightly, though he didn't think my previous prescription was inappropriate.  But he knew I was having some difficulty with blurry vision, so he said it might help.  Plus, he's going to try punctal plugs for my seriously over-dry eyes.  $1300!!!!!  Fortunately, I think my insurance will cover the bulk of that.
  • I saw the dentist last week.  Two more cavities.  Shock of shocks.  Sucks to be me.  I'm just doing my part to help put his eldest through college.
  • Work is busy.  Worse than this, this is annual performance review time.  This sucks, Beavis.  This means I have to find nice things to write about myself.  Worse, I have to dream up objectives for next year.  Bleh.  I'm bad at writing performance objectives.
  • We had dinner at Sienna's last night.  We like the owner.  A lot.  They've expanded it, and it's really nice.  I like it.  They are having their grand opening party on Saturday.  We might go.  We might not.
  • I am drinking Swiss White Chocolate International Coffee out of a Prevacid Coffee Mug.  Yes, Seth, this means I stole your canister of Swiss White Chocolate.  I think it's very funny that Prevacid advertises on a mug.  Isn't Prevacid a stomach medicine?  Doesn't coffee damage your stomach?
  • Yesterday I got to explain seriously basic computer security concepts and terminology to a security engineer.  Dammit.
  • $1300!!!!
  • I'm picking up my new glasses tonight.  I almost went for a daring, funky pair of glasses.  But I couldn't do it.  Too big a change too quickly.  So I went with an old standby.  Gold wire frames.  Kind of rectangular-ish.  And I got the daring funky ones made into sunglasses.  They rock.  Or they will once I pick them up.
  • Having dinner with leahmiriam tonight.  Yay for me.  :-D
  • I hate my teeth.
  • For more than one reason.
  • I have a squishy brain, a squishy pig, and a squishy computer on top of my monitor.  Behind me, there is a beanie somach and a Dilbert Doll.  In front of me is Marvin the Martian.  I am a freak.
  • I really want a Coke.  I'm trying to resist.  I shouldn't drink soda.  I think I'm going to lose this battle.
  • I need to get back to work.

Current Mood: amused amused

Yes, it is and coffee is bad for people who take Prevacid both for the acid and the caffeine it contains.

Security... and goals.

Yesterday I got to explain seriously basic computer security concepts and terminology to a security engineer. Dammit.

You think that's bad....

I had to explain how (and why) to login (and out) to a security engineer. Now, it's really not that difficult. When you turn on the computer, there's a box saying "Press Ctrl-Alt-Delete to log in". Then, you type in your username and password. Then you're in and can do your work.

She couldn't grasp the Control-Alt-Delete bit... or the password bit. Now, granted, she was setting up and testing security for the website (in the test lab, before it went to production), but you'd think most computer professionals could follow simple directions, right?


. Take over eastern seaboard.
. Vote in next election.
. Try to keep from killing my cow-orkers.
. Injest the highly corrosive dihydrogen-monoxide in an attempt to maintain a semblance of productivity.
. Consume large molar quantities of highly explosive and corrosive diatomic molecules.
. Spend a large quantity of time exposed to High volumes of Electromagnetic radiation at a 90 degree vertically rotated semi-supine position.

Unless your boss knows you're a smartass, those last 3 work rather well... (I'm going to drink water, breathe, and watch TV). I used to have one about dissolving and recombining amino acids, (eating meat / digesting protein), but I don't remember it now.

Re: Security... and goals.

Edit: The last goal should be - sitting on your butt, watching TV (although technically it could be working at a computer as well)... Left out the "seated" part....

"Resistance is futile."

I really want a Coke. I'm trying to resist. I shouldn't drink soda. I think I'm going to lose this battle.

Better to give it up to Coke, as opposed to Pepsi (blech)...mmmmm. Coke. I want some now... after I get a mug of coffee in a prevacid mug... ;)

Re: "Resistance is futile."

Sigh. I love Coke. It's my downfall. Maybe I'll manage to get off of it during Pesach. I don't really like Pesach Coke. Too sweet.

Re: Dentist appointment...

384-8788, I think.

I knew you had cleanings this month, but didn't know when. I thought they were early Feb. though, so I hope you haven't missed them. ;)

Re: Dentist appointment...

D'oh! How is it that you know my schedule better than I do?

I have passed the buck to the Wife, who can plead "baby" far more convincingly than I can...

Re: Dentist appointment...

For all I know, your appointment is the 29th. I just remember Laura mentioning it. But I absolutely could be wrong. They are usually pretty good about calling to confirm appointments, but I've had one or two that they haven't reminded me of (and I have missed those appointments!)
