...was re-reading some old emails I wrote. I really was a schmuck.
No, I take that back - am. I was just an even bigger one then, if that's possible.
I think this weekend if I have any time I'm going to start recounting my story. I've got a lot of interesting (well, to me) anecdotes and stories about my life, and some I haven't even beaten you all over the head with yet. ;) Might as well spew away for a while, it might help me get my head straightened out a bit.
Got to go to visit my lawyer sometime, they need me to sign off on some stuff and talk with me about some stuff. Yeah, stuff. I'm tired.
...for kicks, I let MS Windows Update automatically update the video and sound drivers on my Win2k laptop. I then rebooted, as instructed.
While booting into Win2k, the screen went black.
"Excuse me, I said, Oh fuck."
*staring at computer*
Then the Win2k loading screen came back and it proceeded as normal. Yay. So, apparently it actually does work. That's good. I've never had to fix a fscked up Win2k install before and I don't feel like learning how today (I doubt if it'd be all that hard, as I've done it plenty of times with Win9x and WinNT, but...).
I am growing increasingly pissy. Thanks to the antics of the junior admin, and to my wife (just for being herself) I'm getting near the homicidal point. (Note to all law enforcement officials: not literally. I'm using exaggeration for dramatic emphasis.)
Anyways today I'm leaving early to visit my lawyer, sign some paperwork, blah blah fucking blah. I wish I either lived a few hundred years ago or in a post-apocalyptic lawless future. Hmmm. I need to build a time-travel machine.
It has been brought to my attention that the building next to us (155 5th Avenue, Jewish Synagogue) is being inspected for a suspicious envelope, which may contain a powdery substance. Nothing is confirmed at this point and workers next door believe it to be a hoax; however, there are police and emergency service personnel present at this time and are fully investigating this issue. I have also spoke with the Department of Health & Human Services and again nothing has been confirmed at this time. I will continue to stay in touch with the police and Dept. of Health throughout the day but you should not feel as though we are in danger. In addition, our building does not share any ventilation system with the 155 5th Avenue building next to us. I will keep you posted throughout the day.
