What the hell?!

RFO: monkey's paw!

It's not just that work is busy this morning. It's busy with really weird odds and ends. I'm seriously considering listing, as a reason for outage, that I suspect the other telco built something on an Indian burial ground, because they totally seem cursed.

Was supposed to hit a party in VA last night, but both M. and I really weren't up to the commute there and back. Long week. Will have to make it up to the birthday girl in the near future.

Tonight: party at my joint. Doors open at 8. Bring stuff if you want to.
Tomorrow: my family's coming to my place for some birthday hanging out.
Next week: getting things back on track to normalcy, as other big sekrit plans are afoot.
