God I feel rotten. Instead of going along to some geeky wankfest about wireless internet whatevers, my friend and I stayed in the neighbouring pub and sank lots of pints of strong lager. And there's no rest for the wicked tonight either as I am taking a young lady friend along to expensive restaurant which means plenty of vino.

Poll is: best politically correct term for the WTC/Petagon instigators....

How life stinks at the moment...

Ain't that the truth. Be very glad you are not in the same office as me at the moment. I'm being borderline psychotic.

Borderline psychotic coz I'm doing 3 people's jobs and a telco just tried to push 6 different maintenance windows on me, none of which had more than 24 hours notice, 2 of which were 'can we do this now' on horribly service affecting things, all of which are things that we really need doing, nobody is answering the bloody phone, the temp keeps putting calls through to me when I'm on lunch, not that I'm having lunch off or anything coz I'm prepping the config for 3 atm vcs, I've sprained my ankle, my teeth hurt, my ear is making funny noises and that kinda thing.

OTOH, people in work have thankfully stopped asking me things otherwise I'd have to bite one of them and the temp hasn't tried to send the only other engineer on duty out to get sandwiches for the interview panel, coz like, she's so disposable, she only has to get the IPv6 stuff sorted before she emigrates to Australia and I'm bloody well going for a pint this evening.

Phew! That feels better:)

You will have (pointless) deadlines coming out of your ass.

geek party and the pulling pants. Perhaps it's different in the UK, but if I had sure fire pulling pants, I wouldn't waste them on a geek party.
