Lions of Babylon

The documentary that I did the design work for, Lions of Babylon, will be airing this evening on WHRO PBS at 8:57. (odd timeslot...) It was actually very good. It tells the story of Saab al Boor, a war-torn village in Iraq, and how they worked to rebuild from nothing into a flourishing hub of local commerce through the aid of various military and malitia alliances.

I'm happy to see that PBS decided to pick it up. I'm hoping for a bit of syndication across other PBS networks.

Seriously. Check it out.

Drove 650 miles to French Lick, Indiana today, for a couple of reasons. Meeting up with my nephew at an anime convention in Evansville, for one. That is still pending. Second being a job interview for an IT Director position with a resort here. (We'll see if they shit a brick when I tell them my salary requirements.) And of course, it wouldn't be a trip to French Lick without a pitstop at the Casino. Walked out of the casino tonight with $1000 in my hand. Praise be to conservative gambling (and the unnatural ability to do math quickly in my head). This trip may prove to be more lucrative than I had originally anticipated.

And on that note,


Fare thee well, glorious chompers

As of 9:30am Saturday morning, I am without all four wisdom teeth. The procedure went really well and I was in and out in about an hour. I opted for local anesthetic instead of having them knock me out completely, so they loaded me up with Lidocaine, Septocaine and every other Caine they had on hand, and went to town on my facehole.

The recovery process has been uneventful, albeit far from enjoyable. Solid foods, I do miss them. Yesterday's dinner consisted of a chocolate Vicodin sundae, and lunch today consisted of a banana-Vicodin milkshake. Dinner was a pleasant Miso soup with Vicodin. The worst part has been the lack of cigarettes in the past 36 hours. I have been staring at the clock, willing two days to pass so I may resume my regular nicotine rituals.

Tomorrow though... I'm going to eat the hell out of some chicken, as long as it's not being too problematic, pain-wise. The bleeding has subsided and the tenderness is going away, but that could just be the 2000+ Mg of Vicodin I've eaten today. I'm switching over to the 800mg Ibuprofen tomorrow, so I can drive for work.

Wheeeeeeeee

Been working at the same client site since late Friday night. It's become my prison and my own personal hell. Been migrating information from a hosted Citrix platform located out in California to a local server here. This would not normally be an issue except for the fact that the company hosting the Citrix solution isn't worth two shits, and they refuse to give me direct access to the files. So I've been transferring the data using essentially Windows File Transfer via a connected share drive... for 60+ GB of information. The transfer rate at best is around 300K/sec. It's now 9am on Monday and I haven't slept in about 36 hours. The transfer sessions time out because I'm forced to go through a Citrix portal to do so. For what this is costing the company, they could fly me to California to grab the data and fly me back again with it... and it would still be faster. And I wouldn't complain. I'd like to see my Cali peeps. I was up all night babysitting the session remotely to keep it from timing out due to inactivity. Sometimes the pay just isn't worth the headache.

Received this from jenfoxworth last night. Could've cried.

Me: "You know my birthday isn't until next-next Friday, right?"
Jen: "Yeah, but I didn't want you to end up with too much cake."
Me: "There is NO SUCH THING as too much cake!"

Seriously. That shit made my night.

More in-depth update coming later. Right now I have to go to Richmond. There is coffee there to be picked up. I love my life.

So, the stupid HR cunt with Hewlett-Packard... apparently I was not the only person who thought she was a stupid worthless cunt. Apparently everyone else did too... and she was fired. Down-side to this is that with her went everything she was "working" on, including my acquisition paperwork. So now I have to start all over with a new HR person, submit a new resume, etc etc etc. I am currently in the process of getting the contact information for the new person, because I now have no point of contact within the company.

On the plus side, Dogface is currently sitting here next to me shoving his nose in my ear. So the day isn't a total loss. At least there's Dogface noses.

In other news, Livejournal, once flowering with life, has started to wither and die. I'm not going to jump ship completely, but have opted to seek new avenues of contact. So to supplement LiveJournal, I now have a pair of Twitter accounts.

It's that time of year again. Pretty sure neogeen is the only one who knows why these two items are related. Time to bake something delicious.
