Little things adding up:

Tonight was One of Those Nights at work. My teammate Ponytail Dave was despondent at midshifts. I wound up going in and out of the monitor room attempting to help keep things all happy. He did perk up by the end of things. That made us all happy.

There was just a lot of crazy. If one little thing goes blooey, then the whole shift goes.

News is crazy too today.
Dog-cooking, tree-taking school-burner may lose job

Fri Jul 21, 8:37 AM ET

BEIJING (Reuters) - A Chinese headmaster, who tried to buy off colleagues by cooking dog meat for them after secretly selling off trees around the school, ended up setting fire to classrooms when the meal burst into flames, a Chinese newspaper said Friday.

Ten classrooms containing televisions, computers, printers and textbooks burned down, leaving nearly 100 children unable to go to school, the Beijing Youth Daily said.

The headmaster, in the northeastern province of Heilongjiang, sold off a 1,000-tree arboretum surrounding the school on the sly, the newspaper said.

"In order to get the teachers not to tell anyone what he had done, on the afternoon of May 16, headmaster Meng got friends to obtain two dogs, which they proceeded to kill on the school grounds," the report said.

"He then told the teachers they would have dog meat to eat that afternoon," it added.

But the plan went awry when the dog being cooked burst into flames and set fire to the school's main office and then the classrooms.

The local education bureau fined the headmaster 10,000 yuan ($1,252) and suggested he be fired, the newspaper said.

Taking roomie to work in morning. This will effectively get me out of bed and make sure that I am awake for work.

Next week will be me vs. Access vs. the phone goons' scores in the ranking DB. Oh, and jury duty. I'm pulled for two weeks to hack at the DB (with Snarky Lady, who has more practical Access experience than I do) and then I get to finish up the disk copy project. (OMG. I'm actually getting pulled to do some of what I am trained for, sorta. I'd better dig up a little light reading regarding Ye Olde Database, and be sure to consult with my bondmate so that he may mock me properly. Is this going on my CV? You betcha.)

...When CopperCon hits? I will be there, with some of my 79.80 current hours of vacation time.
