I don’t think you’re a lard ass.

The lowdown… werq is teh suck. Big surprise. Jackie took “the girls” of the office, who are mostly about to be out of work, out to lunch. There was much venting from people I don’t really talk to at work, which was at least interesting.

Movers are coming on the 15th to move accounting and downloading only. The rest of us are stuck in this locale, or working from home, indefinitely. Jackie says they would have to arrange a sub-lease of this office before we could move, and that monkeys will sooner fly, since there are already 3 other office spaces in this complex which have been sitting empty for almost a year.

Haiku venting helped, but there is still some lingering annoyance with Jon-boy, who is at the immediate top of the new organizational chart for this department, as in he is now “my boss” and not just another ass project manager to annoy me. Further up the chart, above even David Camp and Lloyd, falls annoying former sales guy (the one who promises whatever he wants to a customer, then raises hell with engineering until they make it happen, then complains that other things didn’t get done because engineers are lazy, then sends out mass emails to folks using “industry buzzwords” I’m fairly sure he only heard on TV) Steve DeLavaga, aka Stevey D. is now second in command of the whole FNIS real estate ship. Why am I not surprised? So long as he keeps his ass in California, that’s okay with me. He and I have already had “words” via a couple emails over the past year where I’ve pointed out most politely what a dumbass he is, so I’m sure I’m not on his “favorite people” list. Though, from what I hear around here, nobody in Atlanta is on that list. I’m sure we’ll all respond well to his leadership. Shyeah.

In other news… I am on the “last people who need to know” list for information on our upcoming server move to Kansas City. I only found out last week that it was scheduled for Sunday, the 17th. Now today I’ve found out that the move will require a last “sync-up” of the new systems to our current systems, which means that everyone is forbidden from touching any live site from next Wednesday thru the following Monday. Not sure exactly what that leaves me to do, but I’ve now been told that for all the time I’d like to work over the weekend getting live-site reworks done, I can make up by taking off time on those days. Not that I was really looking forward to that construction filled, possibly 7 hour drive again, to mom’s in the morning, only to come back on Sunday, but now it looks like I will have to work anyway. Fine. Guess I’ll have to call her tonight and explain.

In other news… I’m a huge, lard ass, who isn’t strong enough to hold up my own body weight with my hands, and thus climb worth a damn. This was all realized last night as a group of us decided to go to Atlanta Rocks climbing gym. Sure, it was my first time and I don’t have the “technique” down, but there’s not a lot of technique that can save you if you just can’t hold on to the wall, right? That doesn’t mean I won’t be going back to try again, of course.

This is honestly the last place on earth I want to be right now. What I wouldn’t give to leave here right now. I wonder how much trouble I would get in. Perhaps I’ll ponder whether it’s worth it for a little while, then take off anyway. I’m going to have to work tonight and over the weekend anyway. And more than likely it looks like I’m going to have a big design project assigned to me to take up that “idle time” when I can’t affect live sites, so… blah. What the hell…

    If it’s any consolation, I can’t do a pull-up.

    It might have been consolation if you’d been there with me…

    I never really thought I was a lard ass either until I tried to hold my bodyweight up with my hands. It really changes your opinion of yourself.

    We could have cried over our lack of upper body strength together.
