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 -

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!

(3:39:29 PM) ProfessorTom: I feel like I could get any girl that I want right now
(3:39:29 PM) EricHowton: Inspiration even!
(3:39:32 PM) EricHowton: Fantastic.
(3:39:36 PM) ProfessorTom: call me Mr. Durden
(3:39:45 PM) EricHowton: I don't think so
(3:39:56 PM) ProfessorTom: Have you ever seen Fight Club?
(3:39:58 PM) EricHowton: Yes.
(3:40:29 PM) EricHowton: You want to elaborate any or not?
(3:40:49 PM) ProfessorTom: the first rule of Fight Club is, you do not talk about Fight Club!
(3:41:29 PM) EricHowton: You're going to lead a lonely life and die alone dude. I can see it now.
(3:41:58 PM) ProfessorTom: why do you say that?
(3:43:22 PM) ProfessorTom: hmmm?
(3:44:46 PM) EricHowton: Because you're bursting with FANTASTIC LIFE-CHANGING NEWS and when asked about it, you clam up quoting that a MOVIE told you not to tell.
(3:44:49 PM) EricHowton: That's just weird.
(3:44:59 PM) EricHowton: You're freaking me out, man.
(3:45:26 PM) ProfessorTom: oh really?
(3:45:29 PM) ProfessorTom: uh...
(3:49:50 PM) EricHowton: *sigh*
