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!

I'mma let Scott do his post-event report, but Aaron Shurtleff is the greatest live GOO game champion of 2009 ever! And now a short listing of in-jokes from Goo Con Citrus Ridge: Push it, Bowwow. Push it hard. Go »

23-VIII-2006 or Please think for me, I can't bear to.

Work is going to kill me! I've been out in the sun too long. I need a quick break. Go »

8-II-2008 or No way! Not on your life!

Thanks to Lori for giving me something to laugh about today! :) Well, it's Lent again, which means I'm not eating meat today (except seafood, which is still kind of meat, which never really made much sense to me, but, hey, I'm a follower, so I do what I'm told without question...or at least without vocalizing those questions!).

24/25-X-2007 or That's What I Get...

I really shouldn't try to write this late, since it messes up the date protocol. But, since the whole protocol was fairly arbitrary, and I made it up to boot, I guess we won't dwell on that. :) Golly! Go »


Gotta clean the dust out of here... Also gotta hope no one sees me doing something that is not RB concerts... Yay! Go »

28-V-2007 or Hippies will always attack an Elf, when they see one.

Random title of a spam message that came to my work e-mail address recently. Thought it was amusing enough to use as a post title! Well, it's Memorial Day, so take some time to appreciate the sacrifices others have made for you today. Go »

Happy anniversary!
