668 - Neighbor of the Beast

Rambling, ranting, and whatever I feel like. I'm not a huge blogger, so don't expect any kind of regular updates whatsoever.

  1. And back to the grind.

    Last day of vacation.

    Supposed to be on the clock in approximately twelve hours.

    ......Man I hate that job and can't wait until it's done with.

    The latest news I've heard is that late March or Early April is fairly likely for my new job (which would let me have lots more time to myself) but even if I got the job then, I'd have to wait until I'm cut a check.

    So apparently the news is making the rounds that Whitney Houston died today at 48.

    It's a shame, sure, but I wonder why people are so surprised by it. Like it's shocking. Like it's stunning. Like she was "cut down in her prime."

    Sure, 48 is pretty young to die, and it is a shame, but people seem to forget that the woman was really hard into coke for about 10 years. Certainly not perfect.

    I actually had someone get offended when I kind of shrugged ...
  4. These are the sorts of things I do on my days off.

    Well, I'm on vacation, but I just spent essentially the last nine hours trying to get this upgrade done and all the kinks worked out.

    To be fair, the forum upgrade only took approximately an hour and a half. That was nothing. Aside from a few files that somehow didn't get uploaded, that went smooth.

    No, the forums were fine; the pain in the ass was setting up the new CMS stuff, and dealing with all the things brought on by updated StyleVars for the skin. (Translation: I ...
