Why the war was really won....

Most weeks pass fairly uneventfully for me, and thus not really inspiring much that would be blog-quality literature. I know. That's really sad. This last week was not really any different, and the weekend, though completely enjoyable, was a weekend of personal time-wasting, that nothing really came of it.

Played with some 3DSM.
Sketched some.
Wrote some.
Researched ANSI 270 requests and the corresponding 271 responses (go ahead. Google it. I dare you.)

BUT going through my pictures I did find something that made me chuckle. And here it is:

You are so incredibly welcome.

I seem to have had this exact same dream before...

The comic is CtrlAltDel-Online and the website is here. Love it.

Because I love you.

I have been quite fascinated by tattoos, and especially the people that get them, as well as what goes through their minds when they choose a design that is going to be on them for the rest of their lives. And thus I find this site utterly amazing. That plus I just wanted to share the pain with you.

Over Exposition

This evening.....for the first time all winter.....I exposed myself (not literally) to the wonders that are (is?!?) Pacific Northwestern-er Winter (READ:Snow) Driving, and I was speechless. In a not good way.

Before I continue on, it should be noted that I consider myself a little bit of a misanthrope and therefore all comments, opinions, and observations are mine and mine alone, and probably are a little jaded. Where as most people will by default give General Humanity the benefit of the doubt, I personally would prefer to melt all humans with an orbital laser, while I hide in my lair and eat chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, and dream up essentially useless methods of crushing civilization (which would be oddly ironic, if I were melting all humans with an orbital laser, I would, in essence, be crushing civilization). I like to think I'm more Brain, but in reality I'm just a Pinky.

Anyway, on to the point at hand. While I am certainly no exception to the rule, and therefore quite just in my accusations, everyone on the road in front of me at any given point in time drives like a jackass. They drive too fast, to slow, or just plain retarded. I'm sure that I myself have been this exact same jackass, but from my perspective YOU are the jackass.

So given that I hate everyone impeding my clear and fast route to and from work, those people that do get in front of me, and thus slow down my trek, have an inherent level of fucktard-itude as depicted by the below graph:

Now, as I had previously mentioned, tonight was a brilliant night of snow and suck. I'm not sure at the exact chemical reaction in the brains of the typical north westerner, but SOMETHING happened, and the fucktard-itude factor grew exponentially as depicted on the below graph:

It probably doesn't help that I managed to fall in line (in traffic of course) behind Corky the Driving Imbecile and his magical Subaru of Retarded-ness. I feel I must expand on Corky and his driving abilities. Apparently he was taught that in traffic, after the line has come to a complete standstill, one must let a 6 to 7 car length gap open in front of you, before you slam on your accelerator, and pretend you're racing the quarter, only to slam on your breaks and come to a screeching halt aproximately 3cm from the bumper of the car in front of you.

For 5 miles.
I hate him so much.

Well, wish me luck tomorrow,

The end is in sight....hopefully

Well, it's again the new year, and I might as well kick off my trend of only posting once a month, early in the month. But there is hope. The Job should be slacking a little bit here soon, Mid-Year Reviews are coming up this week, which means that us support monkeys will be shoring up the last little bits of details, giving them to our respective bosses in nice shiney boxes, and then exhaling a huge sigh in relief. Yay, I'm so excited.

From what I understand, work sux from about October till mid-January, but then for the rest of the year life is good. Which means that I get to play with some of the fun stuff I've been meaning to do, but putting off, including Silverlight 2, Windows Sidebar Gadgets, and Visual Studio 2008!!! Can you feel the excitement?? The air is crackling with it!
