Off day. - Portrait of a Young Man as The Artist — LiveJournal

Off day.
All my meetings went over yesterday. Hooray for 13 hour work days.
Eh.

Um... yeah. Came home to clean clothes (no smelly cycling clothes) and a broken internet which I couldn't fix. But I did learn I'm fairly aware of how the wireless works as well as how our house is wired. I also learned that I should call Charter when the internet is broken rather than digging around in the walls to check connections first; this, though, is ultimately against my character. I'd rather eliminate all possibilities on my end before asking some one else so I don't look like a fool for missing something obvious. Eh. Hope it's back up when I get home today.

Feeling oddly listless today. It's another QAN war room day but the war room is booked. I can't afford a day for QA notes, need to test logs so I'm going to do so. Feel vaguely like I'm the slacker today even though the war room is for the developers. Maybe not listless... lost? I don't know. Everything feels off, akimbo to correct.


Should edit trip pictures.
Should go to gym.
Should return modem... finally. (stupid other side of town address)
Should wash sheets.
Bleh.

I don't think I slept to well last night. Lots of weird dreams about sex, dreams about meetings and dreams about travel. Woke up sweaty and with sheets pulled off bed.
pbbttlltlll Do over.

BUT! I do have animal crackers. Mmm.. monkey cookie.

Current Mood: blah blah

Apparently it was out all over the county. Finally came back on, albeit excessively slowly, around 10:30, and completely around 11:30.

I shouldn't have tried to go back to sleep after I woke up at 3 AM. It took me over an hour and a half to fall back to sleep and then I had horrible dreams about friends being mad at me for reasons they wouldn't tell me, snakes biting me, and big scary men attempting to pound down my hotel room door and almost succeeding.

Not surprising you were dreaming about meetings last night after waaaaay too many hours of them yesterday! Ugh.

I'm glad they weren't stress dreams at least. THose are really bad.

Why were big men trying to get into your hotel?

They were drunk and were trying to get me to come to a party or give me a flyer for a party or something, but the fact that I wouldn't let them in seemed to have made them angry, and I was afraid they would hurt me if they managed to break the door down. They were pounding so hard on the door that it was flexing out of the frame, which is a frequent image in my dreams. I called the front desk and it sounded like they had been going around from room to room harassing people.

I can't figure out what it was really about, which is very strange for my normally unsubtle subconscious. I don't think I'm that afraid of my social obligations.

So... checking connections in walls seems to be "something obvious"? Yikes! I just make sure things are plugged in and all turned on, first.

I'm an over acheiver. I suppose a better phrasing is "doing everythiung I could possibly do with what knowledge I have." That's just wordy though. :)

Do over.
I agree.

But I don't have animal crackers...

Go outside. It's lovely. You'll feel better.
smed From: smed Date: July 18th, 2006 06:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
At your advice, I ate my lunch outside. It wasn't bad. A little on the warm side for pants, but not bad with the breeze we get here.
But now that I'm inside, I'm cold!

Hopefully the sun stimulated my little serotonins...
abmann From: abmann Date: July 18th, 2006 06:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'LL STIMULATE YOUR SEROTONINS!

From 90 miles away?

I dare you.

*dedofcute*

You certainly stimulated MY seratonins.
smed From: smed Date: July 18th, 2006 06:31 pm (UTC) (Link)
I already saw that today. It's potentness is lessened now.
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: July 18th, 2006 07:30 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ouch. You're a tough nut to crack.
smed From: smed Date: July 18th, 2006 07:49 pm (UTC) (Link)
Your link says back talk... so I do

I just have an attitude today... sunburn makes for no sex. And Grant says one thing and does another... so I have an attitude. Which causes my sarcasm and my tough nuttedness to come out.

Nuttedness? Maybe that would raise seratonins...
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: July 18th, 2006 07:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
Very well could... *grin*

There are ways of sexin that won't hurt a sunburn...

As for the say one thing do another phenomenon... talk?

*hugs*

I think the general movement/motion would have been enough to irritate it... and I was wiped which also doesn't make for a whole lot of want.

Yes, I've tried several times. He's always subtly dodged around it. I finally told him that we really need to talk about it tonight. He agreed. Decisions and change seem to be hard concepts for men... at least this one. -sigh-

Thanks.

Well, if you ever need to vent, I'm all about the emotional support.
