Skudd's Grumps

Meetings.

This morning has been awful. First, my laptop decided not to get an IP from DHCP. Then the USB wifi adapter I have failed to be recognized. Then my work computer decided it didn't need to do network-y things. Then I got into an avalanche of management-related things. At least now I got my computers behaving again, but I feel like I'm snowed under still.

Theo has been playing with the GrumpLog API that doesn't exist, and he refers to it a fair bit from time to time, but he doesn't actively use it. He doesn't even have a GrumpLog account!

I scraped my shin on Jr's toy box the other day and it's throbbing today.

Invited to a meeting that starts at 8:15. Didn't get the invite until 8:17.

Monday.

I just tried to play Richard Burns Rally again for the first time in at least 12 years. I was reminded abruptly why I never played it much.

Discount tire told me "bring it over" as if they would take care of it right away. Instead, it's going to be 2 hours.

My glasses have needed a good cleaning for the last couple of days, but I have been far too busy to take care of it.

I'm getting pulled into way too many things today.

I'm not speaking Klingon here. I'm using simple terms. Why can't you understand?!

I have way too much going on this morning.

Ugh. Now I'm getting spam claiming to be from Stormy Daniels.

I just had to look at the calendar to figure out what day today is.

My own personal morale is trending right along the same line as my stock investments.

Theo is scraping the Grumps.

I am feeling really overwhelmed for no reason at all.

I just had to use a calculator to figure out how old I am.

I want more beverage, but I'm trying to cut back on soda and I really don't want more coffee and water doesn't sound appealing.

It smells like sewage in the lobby.

Monday morning traffic.

I had to open IBM Notes this morning.

Minding my own business in gridlock traffic. Hadn't moved in minutes. Truck pulls up next to me, passenger flips me the bird, then they drive away.

Being out of the office for a day, then coming back.

When other teams don't understand incremental development and the things that need to be built in certain manners to allow incremental and parallel development to happen.

When people ask you a question then keep talking and don't let you answer.

No Dr. Pepper in the break room. :(

VMWare.

This internal product announcement took me to a wiki page that took me to another wiki page that took me to another wiki page that took me to a portal that asked me to log in that took me to a list page that took me to another internal portal that also asked me to log in. All of these things opened new browser tabs.

I have yet to wake up fully.
