Loathsome place, it is...

I've had just enough of "printer fault". I think it's time to get a new docutech. Long past time.

Gee. I've managed to cut it down to only 29 jobs due at 8am. And only 167 due today. Go me.

Will, the district whatever-he's-called lately, was here yesterday AM to witness the snafu remaining. Of course, with 6 people coming in early, it was resolved in two hours, so D. wanted to know why we couln't have finished in the night before, to which I replied something like, "well, yes, you or I could have done it in ten hours, but N. and S. are not us, and they worked on it all night, check the tape!" So, Will saw a distant echo of what life here is usually like, but he did make a Starbucks run, though the last thing I wanted was coffee. And hearing from W. in California was good; he mentioned that he heard D. wasn't fated to be much longer in the company, though I've become too cynical to believe the allmighty Kink will fire anyone for mere imcompetance and hypocrisy with a hint of favoritism. But G. did say Will wasn't too pleased with the cutting of hours. Gee, him and everyone else here. On a more intersting note, even though D. keeps saying how little money and profit she's getting, she did manage to buy another brand new car, this one an Audi. Guess that recession thing hit her as hard as the rest of us.

Howard Roark - The egoist. An architect who is
determined to succeed, but only through
himself. He is willing to endure years of
poverty, if it means building buildings
directly according to his designs. He is the
true free-willed thinker; a man who is never
bound by society, religion, or the wills of
others. He has no obligation to other men and
will not be enslaved. He is the hero - and will
always be. You have a bright future ahead of

Saw twinage briefly when they stopped by to print stuff out. Had to send 'em to the Tek, as the Fierys were soooooo taken. Which makes me wonder what I'm going to do this weekend, since that's half of the usual Tahoe beach-bum group. Think it's either camping (not so likely due to car issues) or gramps (getting more likely). If I do end up going down to Colfax, I could go to Rollins, which is like Tahoe but smaller, redder, and man-made. Either way, I need to get out of this city. Soon. Before Dad breaks out the hunting equipment. Hmmm. Wonder if there's such a thing as Kinko's camo....

Passengers on a plane are waiting for the flight to leave. The entrance opens, and two men walk up the aisle, dressed in pilot uniforms. Both are wearing dark glasses. One is using a seeing-eye dog, and the other is tapping his way up the aisle with a cane.

Nervous laughter spreads through the cabin, but the men enter the cockpit, the door closes, and the engines start.

The passengers begin glancing nervously, searching for some sign that this is just a little practical joke. None is forthcoming. The plane moves faster and faster down the runway, and people at the windows realize that they're headed straight for the water at the edge of the airport.
As it begins to look as though the plane will never take off, that it will plow into the water, screams of panic fill the cabin. But at that moment, the plane lifts smoothly into the air.

Up in the cockpit, the co-pilot turns to the pilot and says, "You know, Bob, one of these days, they're going to scream too late, and we're all gonna die."
