icespark had off work Tuesday for a doctor’s appointment, so for a change we got to have MUX night at my apartment. However, upgrading my laptop to Vista Service Pack 1 somehow fubarred my Internet preferences, so all night my connection kept jumping to some neighbor’s crappy network and dumping me off the MUX. Still, I got a lot of admin work done, and had a great time temping Megatron.
Tuesday cassiopia drove in from Illinois for a sweet late-night visit. We ate and then snuggled up in my bed to watch some of this season’s BSG that I hadn’t seen yet. We couldn’t stay up too late since she had to drive back in the morning, but it was still fantastic to see her. When she left in the morning I wound up watching two more BSGs, which were all they had posted on the web thus far. So, I’m almost caught up at least.
Wednesday I went over to mishiell’s to
Thursday was lildomino's birthday, so we both took the day off to rest and/or be productive. I brought lildomino her favorite donuts and Diet Coke, and we hung out for a bit before the guilty feelings of ‘we should DO SOMETHING’ took over and drove us from the house. We went to a coffee shop to meet someone so lildomino could interview for a one-night side job, and then lildomino and I went shopping at Meijer. We stopped at Speedway for yummy fountainy beverages, and then went to the mattress store so I could buy a new bed frame. We picked up a fancy birthday dinner from Subway, and a pizza from Papa Murphy’s to eat on Friday night. Then, back to her house to eat and watch TV. Productivity!
Today worked SUCKED, as it has all week. A couple of our experienced techs moved to different departments or retired, and many more are out sick or on special projects. Today the rest took the day off, so all night it was pretty much just me. Mipa is technically here, but he was working on a major cut for the last six hours, so he’s not much help. Ah, the joy of working alone on Friday before a three-day holiday weekend.
Since this weekend we’re celebrating lildomino's birthday, we're going to divide the time between lying around doing nothing, and being productive around her house out of further guilt that we should be doing something. hotarugirl's coming up to visit Saturday night, so she might rope us into being more active.
Sunday I was going to hang out with my mom, but now she's going down to Evansville. So, I'll have more time to hang out with lildomino and hotarugirl. Monday lildomino's parents are coming down to help her with home maintenance, so I'll help with that before going over to icespark's for outdoor grilled food and online role-playing. B^) woot!

Wolf whistle works, woman strips
WELLINGTON (Reuters) - Road workers in a small New Zealand town got their wish granted when a woman stripped saying she was fed up with their wolf-whistles.
The Israeli tourist was about to use an ATM in the main street of Kerikeri, in the far north of the country, when the men whistled, the New Zealand Press Association reported.
She calmly stripped off, used the cash machine, before getting dressed and walking away.
The woman told police she didn't take too kindly to the whistling from the men repairing the road.
"She said she had thought 'bugger them, I'll show them what I've got'," Police Sergeant Peter Masters told NZPA.
