      So I'm sitting here watching Enterprise on Sci Fi... and they just showed a commercial for a movie that looks scary as hell.

      What's it called? Bug.

      Just fucking wonderful.

      Signs is fucking scary when you're in the house alone.

      It wasn't scary the other time I watched it.

      I really should go to bed.

    • Odd thought

      Ok, so I'm sitting here watching LotR:FotR on TNT TBS. Look, it's the Balrog! I bet that heat would really work well to dry my clothes.

      Right, so I need a new dryer, I'm thinking.

    • It's 12:15am and I got the ...

      12 years ago

      bugdog

      It's 12:15am and I got the strangest phone call.

      There I was, watching 24 on my shiny work laptop, laying on the bed with the dogs. Hour 1 of season 1 ends and I can hear something weird out in the living room. Sounds like some teen age girl talking out there... Ok, so I thought I'd just forgotten to turn off the radio when I got home (I leave it on for the dogs - they listen to BOB-FM all day. They like the variety, they say.) ... uh, no, it's my answering machine.

      Possibly the most inept sounding person in creation is calling my fucking house at midnight asking if I want to save money on my car insurance with Geico. I let her leave a phone number, then picked up the phone. It was Amber! (who the fuck is amber and how does she know my name and phone number?) Amber sounds like she's 16 and stoned...

      So, anyway, let me transcribe the message on my phone for you guys -
      Hi, Kelly Donaldson. *I* am Amber and *I* am selling insuranthe (pause, deep breath) with Geico. It is going on a spethial deal and I was like looking at my candidates and I thought you would be one of the perfect people to know. So. I know it's kind of late that I"m calling you, but I have had like so many people to call, so hello. Leaving a message. But if you want to call me back and save a bunch of money on Geico, Kelly Donaldson, well you should call me at 512 - of course - (and the rest of the number).

      I waited until she gave the number to pick up. I think I scared the hell out of her and she said "Kelly Donaldson? Do you want to save money on insuranthe with Geico?"

      (the th in insurance and special were drunken slurs, not a speech issue)

      Seriously, she had to be fucked up. Stoned, brain damaged, drunk, something. Anyway, I really wanted to say something cool so I can find out who the fuck this really is... and instead I heard myself saying, "Do you have any idea what time it is?" and she hung up. Damn it. I'm getting old.

      Caller ID showed Private Name, Private Number, so I'm not calling the number she left back until tomorrow, just in case the number belongs to a real person who also would not appreciate being called after midnight. I want more than anything to know if she was stoned. (and no, it wasn't some foreign call center - this sounded just like some of the local air heads I hear all the time.)

      I'm much more intrigued than I am annoyed. I was awake, after all, but jesus, doesn't anyone have any sense any more?

      I'm not listed in the phone book, my domain name info is old and I can't think where else someone could have gotten that info just to prank call me.... and WTF, why me? A prank caller makes more sense than an actual Geico rep calling, but she had my full, real name (which even most of you didn't have until now...).

      Ah hell, I'm never going to get to sleep now. You can bet that I'll be dialing that number when I get up. If it is somehow really a Geico agent, I'll consider posting the number for you guys who might like a drunken, slurred phone call from a female some dark night.

    • Too much stuff...

      12 years ago

      bugdog

      You know, I hate it when I have more stuff to write up than I have time to spend writing it - or putting up photos or whatever.

      Anyway, California was cool and the flight back was uneventful. My last night there, I got to take the rental Jeep and go driving down the coast. It was awesome - I just wish it hadn't been raining. More on that and the photos from the trip (not as many as I'd have liked) later.

      So I got back on Friday and went to get Crash. He had this ... thing ... hanging off his left hip-area (about 2 inches away from his butthole). It was gross. Looked like a ping pong ball sized turkey gizzard had been tucked under his skin and he'd bitten it partially out. Seriously gross.
      We took him to the doggie ER on Saturday and got him back that night. He has to wear one of those dumb collars when I'm not at home to keep him from chewing out his stitches. He's doing well otherwise.

      Right now, I have a tumor off a dog's ass in my refrigerator. Beat that.

    • Nothing in mind...

      12 years ago

      bugdog

      I usually have at least something in mind when I start to write a journal, but the last two days have been pretty much packed with stuff. More orientation at work, today we got into the technical aspects of how Postini works. Today was the best day of orientation because I'd rather spend more time on the inner workings of the technology than the inner workings of the responsibility matrix. Still, it's a good feeling to work for a company that actually wants everyone to know what the other departments are doing and who's doing that stuff.

      So yesterday after work, we hit the road for the big city - San Francisco! I was happy to see places like Candlestick Park (now Monster Park - that sounds so dumb) and all that stuff you see on TV. I took some pictures, but not nearly as many as I would have if my knee were 100% and if my boss hadn't been freezing to death.

      So we drove up Telegraph Hill to Coit Tower and I took a couple of probably good photos there. I nearly re-wrecked my knee climbing up on the wall to take a picture. I thought Laura (my boss - I don't think I've mentioned her name yet) was going to have a heart attack. She was trying to be nice about suggesting that I not climb up there or that I use one of the telescope things as a step up. I did, but only after discovering that there was no way I could straighten my leg out with that much weight on it. Heh, I still got a couple of pics.

      Then we went driving around looking for Lombard street. We managed to find it and I can say that I've done the super tourist thing of driving down the most twisted street in America. I couldn't believe that people live on that street. I can't imagine trying to drive into those tiny garages or back out with all the added tourist traffic. Anyway, it was cool as hell.

      We then went and parked somewhere nearish to Pier 39. We window shopped at the tourist trap stores (3 T-SHIRTS FOR $9.99!!!) and I did all my family shopping :) My family likes the cheesy fridge magnets and "property of" shirts. I got my dad (the cop) an Alcatraz Warden ballcap. I'll post the rest of what I got after I get home so that if my sister reads this, she'll still be surprised :)

      We then went out on Pier 39 proper. I liked the shops and the buildings, but what I *really* liked was the seals. I think I have more pictures of seals than I do of anything else. I probably got some goodish photos of the sunset, the GG bridge and Alcatraz, but it got dark (and extra cold) before I could take all I wanted. I did do some little movies of the seals - complete with sound, because barking seals make me laugh. We ate at Swiss Louis. It was ok, but I could see the seals from there, so I really liked it.

      Did I mention the seals? They were cool as hell :) So were the seagulls. It's not like I've never seen seagulls before, but these were HUGE seagulls! They were neat, too.

      Ok, so today was technical information day, so that was cool. After work, Laura said she was tired and gave me the keys to the Jeep and said have fun. I drove out to Half Moon Bay, then down 1 to Santa Rose, then back east to the San Jose area, then found El Camino Real and drove back up ECR to my hotel. It took about 3 and a half hours. I took some pictures of the Pacific, but it was raining and extra cold out again. The rain was pretty harsh, actually, but I didn't want to spend my last night in the hotel. I'd have like it to be sunny one more day so I could see a sunset over the pacific, but NOOOOO.... so anyway, it was still fun. My knee hurt more after driving around then it did after walking around SF. Heh, figures. More side to side movement, I guess.

      I didn't think about it until it was too late, but I should have stopped at the In 'n Out that I saw in Mountain View (oh, that was neat too, driving through all the places I've been hearing about for years - Cupertino, Mountain View, Sunnyvale, Menlo Park...). I ended up getting some nachos from the Taco Bell next door to the hotel. I was ready to be in by then :)

      So I'm sitting here on my laptop, watching The Tonight Show... I got all my stuff packed back up - a major feat due to the fact that I have several more things to take home, including a bunch of stuff Postini gave us in bootcamp. I have a shirt, a lunchkit thing, a couple of pens, a water bottle and some other misc things that are neat. Hell, it would have taken me years to score this much company branded stuff at any of my other jobs.

      Oh, also, it was really cool to be driving through Mountain View listening to Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb on the radio - one of those good memories that I hope will stick for years...

      Right, I'm going to crash. We're leaving San Jose at 12:20, getting into Austin at 5:45p. As much fun as this trip has been, I'm looking forward to getting home with my dogs, my bed and my big tv :)

    • RICE

      12 years ago

      bugdog

      Heh. Guess what that (RICE) means? The company I work for (Postini) has such cool HR people that when I was limping around today, one of them asked me when I hurt my knee. I told her on the plane and she said, "That's going to be a worker's comp claim, I think. You need to go see a doctor today. I'll find you an urgent care center..." and she was clearly concerned about my KNEE not about the claim. I never considered that it could possibly be a WC injury, and frankly, I still don't. I'm a klutz, simple as that. Anyway, my new boss kept telling me how horrible she felt because she didn't take me to a doctor last night - Hell, I'd have been pissed if she had, but I nicely explained (and then begged that she not feel bad) that I didn't want to go anywhere yesterday except to bed and that I wouldn't have done any thing differently because it might not have been a problem.

      When I went downstairs to find her after training, she introduced me to another guy here and he also asked what happened to my knee. I told him and my boss said again she felt bad, etc, the guy clued in on something and asked how long I'd been with the company. I had the joy of telling him that I'd started on Monday and he said, "Oh, I wouldn't have said anything either, I'd have been thinking 'oh fuck, it's my first day!" He totally nailed it :)

      So anyway, here I am, back at the hotel with a nice knee brace, having been x-ray'd and found to be OK, but sore.

      We went to Palo Alto to the urgent care center and then ate at an italian place that was AWESOME! I had Gnocchi Emelia and bread pudding. It was great! Ah, here it is - Il Fornio. Good stuff. It was expensive, but I didn't pay - my boss did and she's going to expense it. I haven't paid a dime for ANYTHING yet, not even the bottle of water I got at the gas station. She won't let me - heh, even after the whole thing with my knee.

      I have yet to put in a day's work for these people. This company has all the fun of a start-up, but none of the worry that they'll fail. These guys have been around for a few years now and practically have a printing press, their suite of products is that good.

      For those of you who haven't sustained a sprain, RICE is rest, ice, compression and elevation. I've got all four of those going on right now - compression is helping the most. The doctor gave me a neoprene Hely & Weber hinged brace that appears to cost anywhere from $75 to $100 bucks - and they didn't try to charge me for it. I gave them my insurance card, fully expecting to have to explain over and over that yes, i had insurance, but they didn't blink. Seriously, you Californians have your shit together (at least in the doctors' offices, you do).

      So anyway, I have another day of boot camp tomorrow, then tomorrow night after work, we're supposed to go into San Francisco :) I plan on taking a snoot full of ibuprofen, but by god I will see San Francisco!

      Hope you guys are enjoying my misadventures!
