Thursday was exciting in that "sorta good, sorta bad" way. - Paint It Black
Living the American dream one heartbreaking piece at a time
Thursday was exciting in that "sorta good, sorta bad" way.
First we thought we had lost a cat when a screen door blew open. Then we found that the cat in question had never left and were relieved. Next we picked up prophetx from his hotel in Naperville, drove him back to Bolingbrook and stuffed him full of bd's Mongolian stir-fry and Sam Adams beer. We even managed to find time to call schloss_adler from the restaurant and abuse him with taunts of beer and... beer is enough, isn't it?

On the way back to the hotel we stopped at one of $EMPLOYER's remote office buildings and gave it a whirlwind tour when we found that my badge did, in fact, unlock the doors even at that late hour. Inside it was vaguely alien and oddly like being in the belly of a competitor, even though they are just a different branch of the same entity. The look of shock and horror that resided on the faces of ProphetX and Curmudgeon was amusing but I think I had a bit of a shocked expression as well. This place gave new meaning to the name "cube farm." I also have never seen so much Happy Bunny merchandise in one space.

Once ProphetX was dropped off the 'mudgeon and I made our way home so we could curl up in bed and listen to the wind blow outside the house. As the wind rises and the temperature drops it seems to me this is the time of year when somebody sharing warmth with you in bed is possibly the most reassuring thing in the world.

And those hollywood nights

People out here seem utterly taken aback when I say I don't like Sam Adams. Sacrilegious in this area, I think, and I'm usually given condescending suggestions for Bud, generally followed soon after by the waitress accidentally stumbling across some faulty electrical wiring. Dunno what it is, just never cared for anything I've tried from that brewery. Fortunately there're some decent regional (sorta) alternatives like Dogfish Head.

I so totally agree on the Sam Adams front. I'm sure it's good beer, but I just don't care for it. Glad to know I'm not alone!

Yes -- you are correct... Beer was a sufficient taunt.

I must salute you on your well timed abuse, too. I was, at that exact moment nonetheless, bemoaning my own "out of beer" condition.

I have not fully corrected that situation. Although the Dos Equis Amber on draft that I experienced this evening was a start in the right direction...

You have to be careful, using an ID card to get in an office building like that late at night.

You might be hit by a laser beam, digitized, taken into the network and thrown into games. :)

While the doors are controlled by proximity cards I have absolutely no fear of that with $EMPLOYER: before we could have a laser we'd have to get rid of the "laminated paper" ID badge system that looks like it was created by a couple of 9 year olds with a "Secret Club."
