No one shall defeat me, for I am a god among nerds.

I am nerdier than 98% of all people. Are you nerdier? Click here to find out!

Not much to talk about. Work would have sucked, if I acutally had a chance to work. Spent around ten hours down there, and I think I was the only one not to get paid. Except Ken, who was on vacation. And still making as much money as I did after spending all day at the office. Turns out that the one job that I originally had scheduled cancelled at the last minute, and nothing new broke down. So no one needed me to solve their non-existant problems. Everyone else in the office was either on salary or doing non-tech work: answering phones, scheduling meetings, and so on. And I was there longer than any of them, but made almost nothing for my efforts. Not even enough to pay for my lunch. But I had to stay there since I was the only tech on call.

I tried to make the most out of all this "free" time and study for my 72-290 exam, but after the first few hours my brain simply stopped working. I never really had a chance to get it warmed up or stretched out I suppose. Kept accidentally dozing off. Not good, considering that my manager has a desk in the same office. Finally, everyone else went home and I got the classroom ready to run a Network+ study session. But no one showed up since we were having our usual Mobile afternoon thunderstorms. So there went another four hours of paid time that I was kinda counting on. =P

(And, of course, all this happens right after I drop a ton of money on a laptop. Sure, some of that money was from the insurance on my old system, but it's still not the best time to have a sudden financial drought.)

But! This morning, while I was so bored that I was about to start chewing on my own arm just to have something to do, T-Mobile released a Texas Hold'Em game for the Sidekick II. Talk about perfect timing! XD Needless to say I downloaded that before the screen even finished loading, and spent as much time as I could get away with betting and raising and counting my chips. Not only did I win the tourney, but I busted out three computer players at once with a beautiful A-2-3-4-5 straight flush. Wish I could get hands like that playing in person. ^_^;

Looks like it's nine. Time for the Titans, then SailorStars (assuming that this codec pack download doesn't crap out in the next half hour). Baka AOL... ::shakes fist::
