Heck…you’re only as old as you feel, so I think I’ll celebrate being legal again, yet not drink myself stupid (I can manage well enough on my own thank you). Today was celebrated by working my arse off all freakin’ day long (13 hours), and not telling a single soul around work. After all….can’t let everyone in on everything, now can I? I’m gaining quite the reputation around here though as being some sort of genius/guru/demigod when it comes to technical support, so now I get to deal with supervisors coming up to me asking favours when dealing with problem people and/or delicate issues. Do I really enjoy putting myself on the spot like that? In that case, no, but…..it does go far when it comes to the annual pay review.
Now if they just don’t cap my pay.
I found some really awesome boots online that are not really “fuck-me-boots” – they’re more stylish and trendy, so they would tend to get worn our in more places than regular stils. I’m also getting ready for a vacation back down to Denver, so I’m hopeful that I’ll get a chance to spend time with more friends than I did the last time. I did see some of my faves though, so now I just want to see MORE of them! Of course, we’ll be spending our fair share of the time eating at more of our favourite places, and hanging out at more of our favourite haunts. It’s just a chance to get out of Dodge and go see civilization once again.
I’m thinking I really should finish my “Witches of Eileanan” book set, and then re-read the Myst trilogy once again – those were some NICE books. I met someone here who is into Star Fleet Battles as well as D&D too! Oh man…..how long it’s been since I got around a table with some nice people, some books, paper, dice, and overactive imaginations. You computer-aided people are way to spoiled. Imagination is no fun when it’s drawn out in front of you in high-resolution graphics – that’s someone ELSE’S imagination at work there.
For anyone who is wondering…yes, the family is doing very well, and although we have our problematic days, it beats the alternative by leaps and bounds. I know there is a silver lining in every cloud – just sometimes you really gotta hunt for it.
