I wish!
He's a benighted coffee-fuelled inventor with a mysterious suitcase handcuffed to his arm. She's a cynical out-of-work queen of the dead living on borrowed time. They fight crime!
They Fight Crime!
Thanks to suburbaknght for the link.

Only certain people know what's in the case. >:)

Slept long and hard last night. It was a long, trying day. and no matter what I do, I am requited with nothing. There was a small token of good yesterday, though, which will likely make up for it all
These four statements may not be related.


Theoretically seeing ayrynkat tonight. Shoulda remembered and gotten all gussied up for it.
Oh and I finally got my VPN working. The whole trouble this past six months? The server is beaker, not breaker. Me = dunderhead.

For aetrix9 - Soy may trigger migraines. (link from que_emocionante! [the crazy minx]) It's speaks of MSG as the problem substance but soy products contain MSG as a byproduct of processing, usually listed as multodextrine or hydrolyzed vegetable protein.

For the first time, like ever, Melissa Ethridge's music is really resonating with me. Curious.
And what's even more strange is that, in my mind, she's singing this song in a full Klingon costume.
Song: I want to come over.

Am I still dreaming?

Current Mood: weird weird

Re: Citrusy!

Right. This was expressed in "Tagliani's suitcase" by making the nanites smell like that.

Re: Citrusy!

I remember that damn suitcase. Then I beat a smiley face ninja with a TV.

Playing a troll in a Conan Shadowrun game is such a bad idea....

I link the person from whose journal I jump to it.. It's nothing personal!

And i just realized you meant the soy link...

I don't know if it helps at all, but you totally made *my* day yesterday. *grin*

I am also terribly amused by your VPN mixup. *snicker* Oops, sorry. Actually it sounds like the sort of dumb thing I'd do. Which is why it's so funny. ;)

I did notice an excellent from you yesterday when I popped in. Sadly I couldn't stay to chat. I had a meeting in Zen at 3; it took me that remaining twenty minutes to find the damn room.

I can't believe that after running through all the VPN docs half a dozen times I didn't notice it. It seems I have weird bouts of dyslexia that are more annying than anything else; though I did miss a flight once due to a transposing of digits. On the plus side, though, I got an excuse to tinker with more Windows services adn Windows Firewall. I can safely say I despise MS.

Maybe you should have asked someone who works in the building and is familiar with it to show you where Zen is. ;P

Sorry I was so distracted when you stopped by- I was working on something related to the frustrating Marketing software and concentrating on trying not to throw things.

The sleepingzebras and I will be attending the anniversary dinner tomorrow night, so perhaps we will see you and your lady_fox there. Last year almost no one from my team went, so it was mostly an exercise in free food and people-watching.
abmann From: abmann Date: April 27th, 2006 03:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
I knew where the conference was, by the main stariwell. I just got confused when I went to the end opposite your office and didn't find a staircase like I expected. So that totally threw me off. THe mistaking level 1 for level 2 was just idiotic. I eventually found David K's office, the UI guy that was running the meeting, and asked him.

I know nothing about marketing sooftware but I know marketing is frustrating. :)

Yay! Fox and I will be there certainly. Come save us from floundering for seats not near Russians (Fox is interested in meeting you. You've been a topic of conversation last two days.). Last year we were at a table where half the people spoke only Russian and completely ignored my attempts to talk to them. They also got food before our table was called. Very inconsiderate. At least the food was pretty good. mmm. Mushroom thingy.

PS:
I stumbled on alyska's site when searching for rope art inspiration yesterday so Fox knows what you look like. Seems only fair to return the favor. It'll make it easier for yuo to find us too. :)
evilevi From: evilevi Date: April 27th, 2006 06:01 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hm, I was sure I already sent you a link to Alyssa's pictures of me in reply to a lovely bound icon of lady_fox I commented on a while ago. alyska and her husband jeffreyp are friends of mine and very talented individuals. They're also friends and conspirators of graydancer, so one way or another you should manage to get introduced to them.

I am interested in meeting Fox, too. What time do you think you two will arrive? Given the ridiculous number of people there last year, I'm afraid it might be hard to find anyone unless one knows when and where to look for them.

abmann From: abmann Date: April 27th, 2006 06:12 pm (UTC) (Link)
I don't recall the link, but maybe that was part of the psychological impetus to search for alyska's site, which I new existed somewhere. I also knew that she had done photos for graydancer and juniperlore at some point in the past so new there'd be rope art to be seen.

It's frightening 90% all of my social group can named in LJs.

We'll likely be arriving near 6 to awkwardly drop coats and search for name tags and drinks.

I have no idea what I'm going to wear. Darn suit being too big now.
evilevi From: evilevi Date: April 27th, 2006 07:37 pm (UTC) (Link)
I just realized I'm not sure what I'm going to wear either. The dress I had in mind is rather low-cut and I don't think I want to show off the bruise on my breast at a company dinner. I was hoping it would be healed by now.

Most people I know socially are lj-enabled as well to the point that there will be parties where everyone is introduced by both their given name and their lj handle.

I got one of my co-workers to cover the end of my pager shift, so I think we will try to be there fairly close to 6 as well.
