Merry Christmas!
To those who celebrate, I hope everyone had/is having a wonderful Christmas. Just got back from visiting cessna182's in-laws out in Brooklyn, from where we called quillter on the phone. Breakfast was with jedimentat's parents before they set out for a holiday season trip.

It's been an entertaining holiday in terms of gift-giving. So far three gifts purchased by me have been duplicates of something the person just got that day or would get a day later. And three of my gifts I almost ended up buying myself, in two cases spoiling the surprise. I guess that just means that great minds are thinking alike, or I really know people/they know me as well as others know them/me. Or something. Whatever. Sleep now.

Oh, and I have a 360, thanks to jedimentat! Because my old Xbox Live Gamertag "Kingfox" was inactive for over a year (damn you WoW), I can't get it back. That, as others have said a few times before, is utter horseshit. Anyway, if you've got a 360 add "KingfoxNinja" to your friends and mourn the loss of Kingfox.

Srsly, bed now.

Current Location: Hoboken, NJ
Feeling: grateful grateful
Listening to: my old desktop rattling (for the last night)

Oooof, that's brutal, I'm sorry to hear that.

I need to get a cooling system for mine.

Re: Friend request sent

What? The friend request was sent via the website!

Though, well, yeah, not working this week. Though I have to go back to cleaning my apartment before jedimentat returns from hitting the malls so it looks like I did something today.

I've been reading reviews for the current cooling systems out there, and will probably end up picking one up soon.

Re: Friend request sent

yay! i confused you! I confused me too.

our fan was cheap and does the job, mostly. we knew it was coming after one of the recent system updates caused some temp brickage.

malls scary. jersey malls scarier.

pork roll for dinner tonight. :D

Re: Friend request sent

Lots of organizing/cleaning done, more Katamari or Halo 3 time!

I hope your de-brickage comes soon. Any recommendations for a fan?

I've worked Jersey malls during the season. For a few years, part-time. The 26th was always a hellish day, particularly in a video game store. No one gets the right adapters, games for the right system, etc. Millions of returns, line out the door, everyone's upset. Bleh. Glad I'm not doing that this year.

Re: Friend request sent

I think some Katamari is in order, though it'll be even harder to get the theme song out of my head.

Whoops, jedimentat is driving around trying to find parking while pan-Asian is already on the way.

Boo for tech support indeed. The few days the students were all gone before we got sent home for the holidays, I had a few people with odd issues to deal with.

Re: Friend request sent

it's just silly when someone from another department sends a patron to the ref desk because the printer isn't working in that department. WTF?

Library politics are one of the scariest Pandora's Boxes I've ever looked into where I work or at any other place. I shudder in awe at those who successfully navigate the territorial seas of human interaction in even the most placid of library settings.
