The final score... it's not in me

When we last left the Gatorade machine of Doom, there were mis-dispensed bottles in the shelves and a Post-it note saying "Out of order" over the money slots, but it still appeared otherwise to be in working order. Recently, someone unplugged it, finally putting it out of our misery aside from the continued waste of space. There's a much larger collection of bottles jammed in the shelves, the mechanism, and the dispenser arm. I don't know whose decision it was to spend the electricity to get that thing running in the first place, but I have a feeling they're responsible for a big chunk of the so-called 700 billion dollar upheaval. The government... you just can't trust them with decisions.


Oh, Ultiform... you are so sadly funny and yet, so funnily sad.

Today's Bridge: I managed to get an ace, and the two who didn't decided not to look for additional players. Sadly, we didn't get much material to work with.

Today's Work: About as much meta-work as actual work, I'd say. I fixed some problems, but there were some things not on our list, so I needed to do the administrative stuff. Fortunately, with only two of us left on the project, I'm the one who's not in charge. The other guy's really stepped up to the plate already. We've even got a to-do list. A TO-DO list. Like I told him, I hate making to-do lists because that's time I could spend to-doing. The problem is that we have several lists already telling us what to do, they don't all agree, and there are things not on any of them that we nevertheless need to do. I found a really obscure problem that requires a rather convoluted series of steps to duplicate, but the fix is so simple, and the consequences of not fixing it so... weird, that I can't imagine us not putting it in the current build.

Today's Gaming: None for me yet... I figured I'd let these guys handle it. Also, Mom called for Curt just after he left, so I talked to her instead. Maybe I'll play something for a while before bed, having missed the episode of Jeopardy I forgot I wanted to watch. Reminders always come too early for me.

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!")
