asleep at mal 9/09

i have a job...

work is sucking so hard - after most of a week off i don't want to be here, and our IT/IS department has taken 3 days to resolve the fact that i couldn't get into our vpn/mail system at all (and it was a simple password reset)

plus when i was gone my counterparts in Europe did all kinds of crap they're not allowed to and approved stupid shit (like a window that has our enginner onsite for 26 hours straight) even though we've gone over and over the policy on what acceptable maintenance windows are... soooo frustrated; thankfully tomorrow's friday and i can go dance

amuse me so i forget this shit

belated new years wish to all of you - a quote from neil gaiman who wrote much better than i ever could...


I wrote this in 2004, quoting myself in 2001. And it feels like a good time to repeat myself one more time. Every three years...

I know it's bad form to repeat yourself, but I was about to list all the things I hope for the readers of this blog in 2005, and I realised I'd already written it back in 2001, when I said...

May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art -- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.

And I really still do.
