The State of the Intersection...

So I actually spent quite awhile thinking about the title of this entry while listening to Randi Rhodes on the radio talk about the united church of christ situation for some reason. I thought it would be a clever play on "State of the Union" and perhaps convey some sense of the cosmic interplay between my reality and whatever reality actually is.

I was wrong and now I am only keeping it for posterity.

Today sucked. It really really did. Especially this morning. I was unaware that the end of the world comes with a paper clip. Four nice neat 8.5x11 inch sheets of emulsified, chemically bleached and pressed tree, terribly and horribly deformed by the vitriolic strokes of a red Bic pen thoughtfully paper-clipped together by my Linear Algebra professor. My my, how nice of her. Unfortunately however 26 out of 60 points was not, and apparently studying doesn't work for this class.

There was however a brief respite in the form of coffee and company. I met up with a sweet and kind young woman who listened to my bitching and then through some form of double x chromosomal magic trick promptly made me forget all about it for an entire hour. The wonders coffee and companionship can do for a young lad. Well, in any event I am forever grateful to her for that act of kindness, whether or not she actually new what she was doing.

In the meantime I have an awful lot of studying to do this weekend if I intend not to fail my algebra class, and I will get to it. But not yet--not yet. As if to remind me that this day was meant to suck, after coffee I headed into the office to catch up with the guys and mess around, hack some shit, get into mischief, you know the usual. No sooner had I gotten there than I found myself in the midst of a maelstrom of poorly written code, horrible decision making and over-worked tech support. In case you weren't aware I work as part of the tech support/QA team at my company. Suffice it to say that everything was bad. Bad bad bad. *ugh*

Then the best part: I seem to be developing a cold. Fucking perfect.

Suck...I need some coffee stat.
