I am waiting for my flight to be called to go to Gally.

I am two, desperately needed, beverages in.

Today highlighted that despite the one that I'm the one deeply fucking up, I have to be the one to call the come to Jesus meetings.

I am out of evens to can't, and I'm torn between spending hours hip deep in work documents this weekend, and telling them all to go blow.

Whoops, flight called. See you on Pacific Time.

Work and Derby going well.

[livejournal.com profile] airspaniel and [livejournal.com profile] rockradar came to visit last week, and it was amaaaaaazing. I love them both so much, and I miss them so much, and it was so awesome to have them in my house.

That their flight didn't get in until 5am Friday when it was supposed to have arrived 11:30pm Thursday really sucked, but the important thing is that they got here, and we had all the fun. And drank all the beer.

Operation: CONVINCE THEM TO MOVE HERE was moved further towards success. Pictures and a more detailed post to come.

Here, have some links...

-Either Gearbox are stupid, or their PR firm is really stupid.

-Enjoy a free download of Samuel L. Jackson reading the instant children's classic, Go the F**k to Sleep. Yes, this has been linked everywhere. BRB, not caring!

-Why Groupon is Poised For Collapse. Wow, eerily reminiscent of the housing bubble's burst...

-6 Reasons Engagement Ring Shopping Objectively Sucks. YES THIS. If you're dropping many figures on my engagement ring, I'd want to know why that money wasn't thrown at your debt. Or a sweet vacation. Or something more useful than, to use a quote from the comments, "something that could be left on a sink in a public restroom."

-I'm a little late to the party with this one, but [livejournal.com profile] bodlon is raising money for top surgery. I <3 him to tiny little pieces, and he deserves all the help he can get.

Hurgh

SXSW is going quite well, and I've gotten to see a lot of old friends who've stopped by the booth or whom I've run into.

But you guys.

I'm so tired.

(How tired are you?)

I put a load of wash in last night, put it in the dryer...and forgot to turn the dryer on.

Fail.

I can't believe I did that. Sigh.
