Weird. Both my brother in law (over AIM) and my dad (over the phone) have asked if everything was ok today. Am I radiating grumpiness or something?

I dunno, I can't tell.

Har har...

Fooled me.

Inside wiring on the DSL isn't happening until next Monday. Even getting the outside wiring done a day early apparently wasn't enough to sneak an IW guy in pre-holiday. D'oh.

My phone service isn't getting cut over until next Tuesday. They apparently lost the record of my order and so when my dad called to see why it hadn't happened they said it was because they didn't have a record of the request. And of course since I did it online and my hotmail email was all wiped I don't have the order number any more.

So, in an apparent effort to preserve the tarnish on their reputation, Verizon has come up with a few big plays to undo any good will they had garnered after doing the initial wiring a day early.

*Phew*. For a second there I was getting nervous, I thought I might have to stop loathing them. Should've known I could trust them, though.


Recommendation: don't try to work on a perl script when you're so tired you can barely keep your eyes open.

I keep drifting off in mid-line and trying to remember what the line was supposed to do and rewriting it. Or forgetting what I was doing altogether and having to sit there staring at the perl and trying to find the wisdom within.

I'm tired.

I stayed up too late last night, as usual, doing nothing. I played a video game, I read a book, I had insomnia. Insomnia is bad. I'm thinking of taking some cold medicine tonight, since a.) I have a cold b.) it should knock me out. Sleep is good, on occasion. It's been too long since we were acquainted.

I took cold medicine this morning, and I'm not sure if it's affecting me now or if it's just the fact that I'm massively sleep deprived.

Thank God for Thanksgiving, I need the sleep.
