So close to September, yet so far. I feel like I'm on a bike with no coaster brake. No matter how hard I try to backpedal I'm still careening downhill at high speed.

I don't think I've had a lot of plain old relaxing time since ... well, since I first signed up for that writing work last year. Didn't pan out as well as I'd hoped, and between that and Warcraft and work ramping up, I'm really feeling the blur lately. It's weird, how I feel like alternately dragging people out or crawling deeper into my hermited shell. And with more work to do, I end up achieving neither. All my hangout time ends up planned two/three days in advance and sandwiched in the middle of other stuff. Ocean City and GenCon were nice breaks, but even those were just appetizers for a meal. Hell, I even spent my first day at GenCon working and I felt like it put me a bit out of the loop for the rest of the trip. I mean, I feel like my own machinations are what dragged me out of the social situations I used to have, and now the pseudo-isolation kicks in thanks to enforced antisocialism.

Take this general malaise and add the icepick-at-the-back-of-the-skull headache and I fear I'm going to be snuck in "snippy" mode for a couple days. Bleah! I've been here before. Once I'm sick of myself it'll turn itself inside-out like a Moebius loop. Given the time to recover, that is.

Since Sunday/Monday's an important deployment date that's pulling in a lot of people, management has declared that all available resources will help, and into the weekend if need be. I'm supposed to be headed to Carolina on Saturday, and I'm doing my best to backpedal out of the position of "critical personnel". Not to mention praying that Hurricane Ernesto turns a bit. Current projections have Ernesto knocking on our door Saturday morning. Joy. By Wednesday morning it should be on land in Florida, and we'll see how strong it is able to stay. The worst possible path for me would be for it to wobble east over water to strengthen before turning due northand smacking into North Carolina ... which is currently the eastern edge of the projection. All I can do is wait and see.

At least I've got some good new music to listen to. I got a big collection of VNV Nation from chrysalis. YAY!

What kind of government catastrophe led to an important release date being set on Labor Day? I'd say get a new job and stop overextending yourself but I know you and, much like my wife and yours, somewhere deep in your dark heart you enjoy working this hard. You people sicken me, I'm going to have to nap at my desk now to make up for all the expended energy you guys use. CONSERVE!

where does one begin?
it's gubment work,
and it's DHS.
if there is a mojojo or "miss bukake" somewhere in the chain of management,
things like that happens.
