I've been sitting here 10 minutes waiting for this query to run. In another 10, I'll probably get an error. So much time I'm able to write a friggin' diary. Oh! There we go, finally got the error.

I was going to buy the alumni membership at $ALMA_MATER gym on Saturday, but I didn't have an alumni card and I was wrong about being able to get them at the library. Can only get them at the alumni center, which is only open during business hours. So I went to work early today in order to come home early. But it didn't work out so well, since I went to the train station right at the beginning of the only 20 minute lapse in service they have during rush hour. Otherwise, it's trains every 2-8 minutes at that station. I should still be able to leave early enough to get to the alumni house before close of business.

WINGS NIGHT. AND CHESS CLUB. I think what I'll do is chess club, then lift, then do wings. Or maybe lift, then chess, then wings. Hmm. I might not actually have time for all three. Chess is 6-7:30, I said I'd be at wings at 8:30. Well, we'll figure it out. The plan is squat, bench press, deadlift. Pretty simple. Next workout should be squat, overhead press, power clean, provided I trust myself to remember the last well enough to perform it.

I watched Ogniem i Mieczem over the last two nights. It's a fun and fairly accurate depiction of some crap between Poland and Ukraine in like 1647, apparently far more even-handed than the novel it is based on (which I haven't read). It makes me want to overthrow the Polish nobles ruling my land. I'm planning on talking to a Cossack (from Zaporozhe!) about it tonight at Wings Night. There will be great justice.

So I'm trying the non-web interface here. The database is still balking at the idea of giving me any information. @#$@#. I have a 9-11 meeting and I wanted to get this out of the way this morning. Whatevs. ... Yep, it's not going. Did I really have anything else I wanted to get done today? I'm not sure if I can think of anything. Hm.

I've got to get out of here.

We gotta get out of this place by wiredog (2.00 / 0) #1 Mon Oct 20, 2008 at 09:05:06 AM EST
If it's the last thing we ever do.

Earth First!

I suggest a supply run by MohammedNiyalSayeed (2.00 / 0) #2 Mon Oct 20, 2008 at 10:29:46 AM EST

Because, well, you can never have too many supplies, and getting supplies requires being out of the office, outside the wire. Leave a post-it note on your monitor saying you're "outside the wire, killing savages", then when anyone comes to look for you, they'll know you're out getting justice.

You can build the most elegant fountain in the world, but eventually a winged rat will be using it as a drinking bowl.
