Pilzner Urquell

Jack-66

Arriving at work early after staying up too late, and with my first cup of coffee still in my hand, I am squinting at the Cisco switch in the network closet believing either of the above statements must be affecting me, as I cannot find the other end of the new quad which was run last night, jack-66.

I rub my eyes and step back, then back in.

64A - 64B - 65A - 65B - 67A - 67B - 68A....wtf?

Perhaps it's me? I double check the jack number under the desk. "66A/66B" Fsck.



So I bring up corporate webmail since I'm using my login on the server room computer, hit my "Sent Items" and bring up a *.pdf file which has the vendor's number on it from a scanned copy of a bill I sent off a couple of days ago. "Brilliant." I'm thinking. Hmmmm:

"You cannot view this file without first downloading it to your computer."

That's pretty gay dude.

So I do something even more gay! I create the network folder "My Trash" under "My Documents" since I was not allowed to save this file directly to the Recycle Bin to open it.

Well, it's taken me six years, but my son now returns my 'Good morning.' with the same. Only that non-posting bastard danzigfried (...danzigfried, young and sweet, only 23...) knows how important that exchange is with me.

Wife has instructed me to pick up a case of Pilzner Urquell and a bottle of Presidente Mexican brandy in preparation for this weekend. w00t!

Jack-66 Forever!

You woke up this morning
Got yourself a gun,
Mama always said you'd be
The Chosen One.

She said: You're one in a million
You've got to burn to shine,
But you were born under a bad sign,
With a blue moon in your eyes.

You woke up this morning
All the love had gone,
Your Papa never told you
About right and wrong.

But you're looking good, baby,
I believe you're feeling fine,(shame about it),
Born under a bad sign
With a blue moon in your eyes.

You woke up this morning
The world turned upside down,
Thing's ain't been the same
Since the Blues walked into town.

But you're one in a million
You've got that shotgun shine.
Born under a bad sign,
With a blue moon in your eyes.

When you woke up this morning everything you had was
gone. By half past ten your head was going ding-dong.
Ringing like a bell from your head down to your toes,
like a voice telling you there was something you should
know. Last night you were flying but today you're so low
- ain't it times like these that make you wonder if
you'll ever know the meaning of things as they appear to
the others; wives, mothers, fathers, sisters and
brothers. Don't you wish you didn't function, wish you
didn't think beyond the next paycheck and the next little
drink? Well you do so make up your mind to go on, 'cos
when you woke up this morning everything you had was gone.

When you woke up this morning,
When you woke up this morning,
When you woke up this morning,
Mama said you'd be the Chosen One.

When you woke up this morning,
When you woke up this morning,
When you woke up this morning,
You got yourself a gun.
