down for an hour and fifteen minutes. Joy.
The Animation Acolyte was reading the new Potter book
in the downtime. I grinningly didn't spoil it. She had
some hopes for a favorite character of hers; I knew what happens
with this character, and told her to think about
parallels between this character and another
character, so that she might not be too agonized when
something very odd does happen involving this
character. (Odd. Hee. Hee. Hee. Hee. Whee! Hee.)
Mornings are not my best time, except when they are. I
woke up for an hour in the middle of the night and had
difficulty getting back to sleep. That's always
I managed to get booths in half the room cleaned up
during the downtime. Downtime is often a bore for
monitors unless we have friends in on the phone who we
can chill and BS with.
Right now one of the other monitors and I seem to be
doing a 3 stooges routine with the monitoring system.
Only one person can monitor someone at once on the
telnet system, but when someone else tries to go in,
it knocks the person who was there off. This can be
bad when I'm IN THE MIDDLE OF MONITORING SOMEONE. ...
Looks like it wasn't another monitor, just Mr./Ms.
Telnet & me. Sucks to you, Telnet. (not "sucks to be",
just plain "sucks".)
Where's my coffee?
