Ah, Payday...

Sometimes it's almost as good as sex.

Actually, I can't say much about it right now, as a large chunk of the money is already allocated. But I am managing to get my own Yule present, and some new clothing for work. At least we're business casual, which means I don't have to deal with dress slacks, dress shirts, ties and uncomfortable shoes. Most of the techs wear khaki slacks, polo shirts and tennis shoes. It's nice being somewhere that doesn't get too wrapped up concerning dress standards. Now, if only they were more lax with the network standards...

Granted, it's probably a good thing that they have the network locked down so that the users don't spend most of the day doing IRC or ICQ or downloading MP3 files. But did they really have to lock off telnet and SSH as well? There are occasional legit uses for that, you know...

* * *

So here I am, sitting in my little cubicle, staring up at a poinsettia that might make it another week, and I'm wondering to myself why I can't just simply turn into a rock and hide a while. It's not like anyone would miss me, considering how many messages I've left for the users to call me about problems. *sigh* Ah well, at least I get paid for it.

Mind you, I'd rather be out in some wilderness running on four legs, or maybe finding some nice cuddly creature to curl up with, but you make do with what you have. Right now, that's not a lot, but eh... it happens.

Maybe I'll go to the comics store and see what damage I can do.

Basic Needs
You know mine. Sex. Drugs. Chocolate. Money. Hardware.

Oh, and we gotta throw rock & roll in there somewhere, too.

Oh, and did I mention sex? ;3
