About Fuckin' Time

So it's about 1:30 in the morning, and I finally got the updates to TC's site done. I'd be annoyed that it took so long, but it's my own damn fault for putting it off so long. Whatever, doesn't matter, it's done now, WOOT!

Almost got really annoyed earlier. Alice informed me that it was now a necessity that she get her own place...now, after 2 months of my paying for everything, and I'm so broke I can barely get by, and I'm trying to pay off the car Cha totaled, and get another car fixed, plus my own living expenses, etc. Needless to say, it hurt a little. I understand where she was coming from, and I support it, but that doesn't mean it didn't cause a twinge in my head. But we talked some more, and really got down to what all was getting to her (and she talked to Scott, who apparently talked a little more sense into her), and we made some alternate plans. We're looking at some places further south and east, so the commute won't be sucha bitch for either one of us, and made a few long range plans about how we are going to handle it. Seems that beyond wanting her own space, she mainly just doesn't like this particular apartment and the large amount of driving that it entails, being north of EVERYTHING (which I agree with). So all is well again.

Still don't know if I got my vacation approved or not. I hope Anthony (my supe) gives me an answer tomorrow (today) so i can get to planning.

I'm beat. I'm going to bed. Anyone wanna join? (*LOL*)

Well, it's official, I got my vacation time approved. So, for pretty much the first third of September, I won't be posting or even talking to most peeps. I'll be traveling, first 4 days on the road, making my way to Fairfax, VA, then bumming around there and Washington DC for a couple days, then down to Orlando to see my family for the first time in a long time, then back here on the 10th.

I try not to bitch about work in here, but i know it slips through occasionally. this is one of those times, so bear with me. I've been dealing with this one particular customer (I happen to agree with necrobutcher and caliban, co-workers and friends, in that I'm not posting my company name here) who claims that we have charged her some outrageous charges, and in response to my not finding those charges and her being told she needs to fax me proof of those charges, gets upset at it, and when she finally does, all her 8-fuckin'-page fax shows is that everything I have been telling her is correct, and there is nothing else there for her to bitch about. So I have no real idea what her problem is, beyond the fact the she should prolly just crawl back under her damn rock. I'm REALLY not looking forward to talking to her tomorrow, because I can just imagine what a pain in my anus she is gonna be.

Left my VCR at heidi's this weekend, so I'm reduced to zoming in front of the TV to fall asleep. Christ on a bun, TV is mindless crap. Whatever happened to the days when late-night TV was old movies? I guess that disappeared around the same time that dawn on Saturdays was kung-fu theatre, and cartoons were on every major station from then until noon. My heart goes out to the children of today, who are missing that. I can remember waking up bright and fuckin' early on Saturdays, watching kung-fu movies, then cartoons until noon, and catching the Creature Feature right after, getting to see all the good (and bad) horror flicks. Martial arts, cheap effects, and funny cartoons...and now, if you can get ONE of those, it's cause for a celebration. Makes me feel old to say it, but WHAT is this world COMING to?
