16-VIII-2006 or When the cat's away...
by Aaron Shurtleff on August 16, 2006
Woo hoo! My boss is out of town! Supposedly, I'm in charge, but it really doesn't work that way. I get all the responsibility, but none of the actual authority. It's kind of a bummer, but I get revenge when I take my two week vacation next month! Not that my boss feels much of the sting of my absence (my co-workers get that), but it feels good to me, and I can live petty! :P
I didn't get a chance to post yesterday, since three or four things went kablooie, and I had to put things back in order as best I could. It was a partial success... Things will move forward as they can. I did what I could do, and I think I can live with any consequences. I am confident that I did everything I possibly could, and that's all anyone can ask of me.
Did I mention I bought a stuffed cactaur (from Final Fantasy video games)? It's the best! I think my wife thinks I've gone off my rocker, but I like it. It sits in my PlayStation room (named because that's all that's in it, other than incidental furniture...sort of my not-so-secret hideaway!) and watches me. Well, it's not alive, so it's not watching, but it stares...good enough for me!
It is wrong for a man to own a stuffed animal? Is it better if it's from a video game? Cactaurs are really bad ass, I swear! :)
In honor of the cactaur, the song of the day will be from Final Fantasy, in fact, FFVII (that's 7). It will be "Katayoku no Tenshi" (One-Winged Angel) composed by Nobuo Uematsu. (Actually, according to wikipedia, the actual translation is "an angel with wings on one side"...ok...I've always called it One-Winged Angel...) I don't know about anyone else, but that song really floored me the first time it played when I played through the game. First and only time I tried to figure out what a song was in a video game!
