Sometimes there is a Goddess...

...and she likes to remind you of that fact every so often.

Case in point: I had a shitty day at work. That's putting it mildly, by the way. The whole week was shitty, but today was the past four combined. We had 10 systems and associated materials to have to load on a u-haul to get taken to Georgia for setting up a remote facility. I had seven users who needed notebooks (three of which were last minute, two were literally last SECOND). And on top of all that, I had my usual levels of user calls and tickets to deal with. So needless to say, by 2pm I was wanting to either a) borrow an AC-130U or b) borrow a fifth of scotch (and I rarely drink alcohol.)

So... I decided that since I had a scratch-off ticket I hadn't cashed in (was under a pile of paperwork in my inbox on the desk) I took it, cashed it in, and bought another ticket. And the Goddess watched me, and whacked me across the back of the head with a 2 by 4.

Five. Hundred. Dollar. Ticket.


Ok, so I'm going to have a NICE weekend. (My bank accont already was whimpering from rent, bills and buying some software on academic discount).

I'll lend you a fifth of scotch if you promise to give it back. ;)

Actually, I'll probably go to Longhorn Steakhouse this weekend. I need to bribe the landlord/roommate as it is... *chuckle* I've been looking at getting a replacement desk, but I may actually hold on that for another couple of weeks.

Woo HOO! YEAH! (ala Jake Gyllenhaal)

Maybe she'll give me that kind of reminder when NC finally gets the lottery up and running. Or is that, If? These people are such crooks they're not even waiting for it to be running before they start finding ways to screw up!

Sounds a lot like Louisiana. Even before the lottery system was up and running there were claims of scandal about it. Ah well... it wouldn't be Louisiana if it didn't have crooks hovering about. *chuckle*

As for academics, I'm having fun abusing my status and ordering software that I have absolutely no need for in classes. Like, oh... Lightwave 8.5 (and a free upgrade to 9.0). Why? Because I can, and who knows when it might come in handy?

Software? Hmmm...can you get the most recent variety of Corel's graphics suite? It used to be Corel Draw, and it might be 12, or maybe they have one more after that.

Or maybe...the most recent Adobe graphics stuff?
