Today and tomorrow are uncharacteristic... I finish work today at 8:30AM and don't have to be at work tomorrow until 4:30PM. It's kinda weird to be working two consecutive days with a thirty-two hour period between shifts. Our major summer fundraiser begins on Saturday, and I'm scheduled to work the event, then stick around for the graveyard shift (I think I'm going to have to bring this nuttiness up to the supervisor). The first weekend of the fundraiser shouldn't be too crazy, but next weekend will probably be hectic.
I have to confess, I should have been writing my geeky purslane post throughout the wee hours of the morning, but I've been a bit discombobulated because I had to trek to another job site at 2AM to handle a problem that, though small, could not be ignored. I should have been researching photosynthetic pathways and summarizing them, but I just couldn't be arsed doing it. Not today. It's a pity that I don't feel comfortable pulling stuff out of my ass. Damn, I'll never get any government grants at this rate. I promise that I'll put up a geeky purslane post in the next week or so. Like most of my purslane-related writings, this one will be inspired by a comment from Jennifer:
OT- the 4+ days of 90+ degree weather has brought on the purslane!
UNRELATED POSTSCRIPT: Vacuumslayer's blog hates me- I have been having problems posting comments there, so I'm posting my comment on her latest post here:
GRRRRR... YOUR BLOG HATES ME!!! Let me try this again:
“Masturbatory navel-gazing crap” seems more than a little hyperbolic to me. There’s navel-gazing, sure. I’m not sure where the masturbation comes in.
I think it involves a belly-button fetish.
I have no idea what a “faux hipster” is.
Hipsters are faux Bohemians (fauxhemians), ergo, faux hipsters are real Bohemians. It's AXIOMATIC!
I think he got huffy because you characterized his critique as "stupid". Some people are thin-skinned.
If you're not reading her blog, read it now. It's a heaping helping of awesome, smothered in awesome sauce. Hopefully you will have the luxury of being able to post a hilarious comment there. GRRRR!
