The crapper, I am in it

These admins are strange. They like light. The don't care for cold. I have no idea what the fuck is up. I'm getting headaches it so bright.

But wait, that's okay, they are going to banish me to storage room so they can give my spot to the fng. See he needs to work with our Citirix admin who he is replacing and there isn't any where else to put him. That means my manager came in here with his head held low and tried to break the news to me gently that I was gonna get moved again.

One the upside once I get rid of all the useless shit in that room I will have a full functioning office where I can keep the lights off in server room esk coolness.

Maybe it won't be so bad.

All I want

Is an android phone w 200 to 400 text messages a month. I don't need a data plan. I don't need 900 anytime minutes. I don't want to spend 420$ dollars. I'm fine re-upping my contract for another 2 years.

Dance to my tune puppet!

Current favorite derogatory diminutive: cockslap. n. A person with so little worth you might rather be hit in the genitals than deal with the individual. e.g. "I'd rather eat a bullet than deal with that ignorant cockslap."

?maybe good news?

The boss man told me that I ought to hold off on taking exams for my MCSE. Told me that the new budget is in and that if there is money for a full time employee and it were to be me then The Company would reimburse me for exams that I passed.

It's not like he told me I've got the job but I got him thinking about it and there was some positive body language.

World Equestrian Games and why I need to get the f*** out of this city

They have sold something like 250000 tickets to watch horses do various things at the FEI World Equestrian Games and they are talking about something like 400000 possible people in attendance. Fuck that shit. The tiny little town of Lexington is not made to hold that many people; the streets are too small and are horribly laid out and there simply won't be enough places to park. This little city is gonna explode with tourists and I already know I won't deal well with all these people.

If my contract doesn't get reupped at the end of september that would be horrible but it would mean that I could go on my Fuck IT tour and get away from the nightmare of what is gonna happen.

Poli Sci Project

Write a bill and submit it to the government. The object of the bill is to prove that an average citizen can get a bill passed and to serve as a teaching aide in political science classes. It needs to be written so that passing the bill demonstrates that the citizen is represented in the government; that the governing body has every reason to pass the law and no reason not to. Record every step and every person you need to talk to or work with during the process. No matter the outcome; if the bill gets passed into law or not, compile your notes into a book/blog and distribute.

An interesting addendum

I was thinking about what I'm going to do if my contract doesn't get extended at the end of September. It makes sense that while I'm employed and making money I ought to invest some in myself and get my MCSE if I can find some place that won't charge too much. No matter what my employment situation is by the end of September the MCSE will be good for me.

This is not what I wanted to talk about though.

Since I am being a good boy fiscally and might end up doing something positive in my career I was think about my "Fuck-IT" tour. If I don't get my contracted extended at the end of Sept then I'm gonna take my aforementioned big trip before getting back on unemployment. I was looking at the itinerary I was roughly planning and realized that I'm gonna travel almost all of I-10; from one side of the country to (nearly) the other. I think that I might have to finish up driving I-10 as part of journey just to say I have done it. The trip is already 6000 miles; what's a few more.

Also, in writing this I've realized that the name of the tour is kinda funny. It's a cross between Fuck it and Fuck I.T. It expresses my disgruntlement with how unstable my profession is. Maybe I ought to make a poster or shirt.
