Sometimes good news IS bad news

It was back to work today, but several things weren't working quite right - a power outage had knocked out the computer systems, so it took a while to get visitor passes for the new people who just arrived, and the gate we used was closed shortly after we got in, so we had to take the long way home. As for the systems under test, there was one major failure that I look forward to investigating. Then I learned that the event will end a day early, so I may be able to arrange to get home a day earlier. However, that requires dealing with either an unresponsive travel office that I can't communicate with via E-mail because I don't have access to my account or one that is incredibly responsive but won't do anything until it's an emergency, even though that will be much more expensive and it will be much harder to find a good flight at that point. Oh well. Worst case, I just set up in my hotel room and work on whatever I can find the day of. I refuse to pay for a hotel room and spend a day of leave because my orders changed and they can't be bothered to change my travel plans along with them. I'll find eight hours' worth of stuff to do somehow.

Signature

Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
