Oh For Chrissakes!

I am on call today. Due to the possible weather issues *HA!* I'm supposed to log on every hour to check for emergency problems.

Being the dutiful drone that I am, I logged on to work. Before 700AM. I was in. Made a call to a customer for an issue. left a message. Then...

My router glitched. My fault...DAMMIT! Started a new session after rebooting the router and my computer.

Goddam CITRIX has been running through the logon sequence for about half an hour...I understand there will be heavy traffic into the servers, but.This. Is. Ridiculous...

Jeebus. If I get logged on...I will just leave the connection open. All day...


The weather? It's coming. Raining lightly now. But the radar? - Weather Radar - Local, State, Regional & National

The Queen's truck died on the way to her office this AM...Safeclear cleared her. Marvelous.

It It Really Pretty Pathetic (Eduoard)

Watcing the local TV crews attempting to MAKE news out of this storm.

Of course Wayne Dolcefino has managed to find some knee deep water to stand in. Pathetic.

Saw one news crew showing the water flowing into a GUTTER on the side of some freeway. It wasn't raining at the time, there. Another one doing a standup down at the beach. Surfers in the background, of course.

It has, however, started raining in earnest out here in the hinterlands.

Siamese Twins

Siamese twins walk into a pub in Vancouver, B.C. and park themselves on a bar stool.

One of them says to the innkeeper, "Don't mind us, we're joined at the hip. I'm Joe, he's Jim, we'll have two Molson Canadian beers, draft please"

The innkeeper, feeling slightly awkward, tries to make polite conversation while pouring the beers.

"Been on holiday yet, boys?"

"Off to England next month," says Joe. "We go to England every year, rent a car and drive for miles, don't we, Jim?"

Jim agrees.

"Ah, England, "says the innkeeper." Wonderful country... the history, the beer, the culture..."

"Nah, we don't like that British crap," says Joe. "Hamburgers & Molson's beer, that's us, eh Jim? And we can't stand the English - they're arrogant and rude.'

"So why keep going to England?" asks the innkeeper.

Joe replies, "It's the only chance Jim gets to drive."

300 Frickin' Channels...

And nothing on I want to watch...

Still can't get logged on to work.

Good thing I've got a thousand page book to put me to sleep. The Year's Best Science Fiction. Good tunes in the iPod. Including some thunderstorm sounding stuff. Which I love. *thanks belleaire!*

Stopped raining here again. From the look of the radar we might get some more. But nothing I couldn't have dealt with from the office.


Oh well. Time for another bad joke!

A blonde gets home early from shopping and hears
strange noises coming from the bedroom.
She rushes upstairs to find her husband naked on the bed,
sweating and panting.

'What's up?' she asks.
'I'm having a heart attack,' cries the husband.

The blonde rushes downstairs to grab the phone, but
just as she's dialing, her four-year-old son comes up and says,
'Mommy! Mommy! Aunt Shirley is hiding in your closet, and she's got
no clothes on!'
The blonde slams the phone down and storms upstairs
into the bedroom, right past her husband, and rips open the closet
door. Sure enough, there is her sister, totally naked and cowering
on the closet floor.

'You rotten 'Bitch', she screams.

'My husband's having a heart attack, and
you're running around naked scaring the kids!!'

For You Techies Out There in LJ Land

To get to one of my tools from home I have to use CITRIX from within an already cludgy CITRIX connection. Some of you may understand what a pain in the ASS this really is...

Oh yeah, tunneling through a balky CITRIX Server to get to another one in Europe. Now there is some fun, I tell ya...

On a semi high note, it didn't take nearly as long as my initial connection...which took over an hour...or two.

Only to get to the ticket and discover it is already CLOSED. (!) Fark!
