Word’s in we wont have the trophy girls until 1. Good thing we rushed to get here by 10am, since we have nothing to shoot! Apparently, their shirts had a logo issue – some one nit picked the logo and had new shirts made.

That leaves me plenty of time to work on day-job stuff.

Indy: Day 2

Posted by rdub in Uncategorized

I’m up at what would be 4:30am California time, and groggy as hell. My eyes hurt, and I’m tired – there’s no denying that.

This morning will be spent debugging the print job, figuring out what’s up with the barcodes (yay font substitution and rasterization).

After that, it’s off to the races where I can finally sit down and get some real-world work done.

BTW: Westin Hotels are lame – when you buy wireless (yes, after you spend $200 a night on a room, they make you buy your fucking wireless), you buy it for one machine, not your whole room. So I had to jury rig my machine to share the wireless over ethernet to Derek’s machine (yea, we’re sharing a room – another awesome thing).

Overall, the experience this time has been less than impressive so far.

The landing here was not so feathery. We’ve spent every minute from 5:15pm to 10:30pm thinking about plan B (and C and D) for if tomorrow morning doesn’t go as we hope.

Your daily dose of politics

John McCain just named his VP pick. And, man, is it a doosy.

Here’s the rundown:

  • Former mayor of an Alaskan town of 1000 people – no foreign policy experience.
  • She (yes, she) wants to overturn Roe v. Wade – the supreme court case that said that women have the right to choose. How can anyone, let alone a woman, think that they can decide what all other women can and cannot do with their own bodies.
  • Her husband works for British Petroleum.  Good one, there…
  • She wants to fight against calling Polar Bears an endangered species.
  • Sarah Palin is under investigation by the Alaska state legislature.  Wow!
  • And, to top it off, she wants to teach Creationism in school … as in the Bible.  Don’t get me wrong, I was raised religious, but intelligent people know that they are allegories, and not to be taken strictly literally.  Also, has any Republican ever heard of a little term I like to call Separation of Church and State?  I’m pretty sure it’s in this little-heard-of-by-republicans document called the Constitution of The United States.  Read it, bitches.
To my dearest friends in the middle states: Don’t fuck it up again.

On Coffee

Posted by rdub in Rants

There’s really nothing worse than coffee that is just too sweet. Sorry, Starbucks, you can keep all your carmel, vanilla, chocomochiato crap. Give me black coffee with cream and I’m set.
