Photos, ads and other thingers.

More inadvertently, badly placed ads.
-------
Slept decently last night except for general stuffiness.

I got all my project stuff done a day before everything it was due despite one team generally screwing everything up; it got so bad that I spent 20 minutes on the phone yesterday explaining to the tester what they needed to test in their own portion of the code. Note that he has been at the company longer than I.

Though he was really gracious afterward and said he was impressed with my level of knowledge and "that makes things easier." Sure, maybe for him.
I guess I shouldn't fault him. His team takes care of thousands of interfaces and tis one was pretty old. Shrug?

I didn't enjoy Beer O'clock as I had hoped. I did post a few photos of note. I didn't write anything but did read more. I suppose I need only indulge one creative process per night, huh? Don't want to stress myself thinking I should be doing more because I can do more. I've been in that trap before.

I feel good.

Oh yeah. Should I 1) be excited for HP 7 release on Saturday? and 2) Outraged over the scanned version already on-line?
I'm more annoyed that one of my community feeds placed spoilers (which I didn't read) directly on their front page. Thank you for the big ole' Poop! text beside it.

I really like the word "beside."

Libraries are SO privileged. Geez.

Let me just say, I'll be damn glad I don't work in a bookstore or a library on Release Day.

Somehow, despite the amount of time I spend online daily, I've manage to avoid HP spoilers. Lucky me.


Also, LOL, that's what you get with context-based advertising online. I'm not surprised at all. However, the RL billboards and such, and the car hitting the bus in particular, that's just too... perfect.

I don't understand why people get so upset about spoilers. Did you not enjoy the King Kong remake because you knew that a giant ape would terrorize downtown New York? It's not about WHAT happens, it's about HOW it happens. Unless, of course, the WHAT is Harry and Ginny boning in the potions cabinet. Because that would be hot.

It lessens the impact, I think. Like usual Suspects or Primal Fear. How lame is the ending if you already know it?

"Rosebud" is the name of his sled.

I hate that movie.

It's the problem of defining things as "classic". You feel like you're supposed to like them, even when they're bad.

I've never had that problem. I dislike.. um.. that Christmas movie where that guy is screaming "Merry Christmas, movie house" at the end. Ya know.... uh Gremlins? :)

I also dislike Shirley Temple, Lucille Ball and constitutional rights to blacks. They's 3/5's a person, they is.

3/5? Damn progressives!

Durn straight. They don't need that much representation cuz they got no souls. Back to the plantation.

Yes!

Be outraged! Be furious! Be righteously infuriated! And be one of the 16 adults against whom charges will be dropped in my faux newspaper article in my last post.


Those ads were funny, hee hee!

Re: Yes!

My outrage is lackadaisical.

I suspect only the crazy fans will be downloading a PDF of scanned page photos. I'll just wait for my copy to come to me, thanks. Of course, that means this weekend will be lame trying to avoid people posting spoilers on my flist. Unless, of course, Barnes and Noble is awesome and ships it early so it arrive on Saturday.

I have an Excel spreadsheet at work titled "ABN report". Every time I look at it I think "Why did abmann send me a spreadsheet?
