10-08-2004:Oh good lord, let this day end...
I need to rewind a few months, to emphasize the impact of this morning's events.
It's been several months since I've slept worth a shit. My bed is a queen-sized mattress and box spring balanced on a double-sized frame. The mattress and box spring are like a gazillion years old, bought from a friend a while ago. It has suited me, until these last couple of months. And I distinctly remember mentioning to my good friend Gina that my sleeping patterns were changing again.
So, I'm sleeping like ass. And this very morning, I was sleeping very well - I was snuggling up to Angelina Jolie in my dream (yes, I was SNUGGLING, you perverted bastards), and then my alarm rang. *BLAMMO* right out of REM sleep.
At that very moment (and I remember thinking this very clearly), I knew today was going to suck ass.
So I got up and went to work as usual, grumbling and pissing and moaning the entire way. No coffee, coffee burns my ass after two years in EE at ISU. Just water and a pissy mood.
I get to work, and of course one of our build machines is down for the count. No symptoms, no errors, it's just not responding on the network. And of COURSE we don't have a %()*@#&$()*& console on it. So I spend the rest of the morning screwing around, trying to get logged into the stupid thing. At approximately 11:20AM, I finally got a console on it. And by that time I was so annoyed I left it and went to lunch. They can wait, that damned machine has already been down for a few hours.
SO, that's how my day was. Boring, stupid, annoying, frustrating, etc. Blah blah blah.
