Fina gets major points for successfully prank calling me at work. It's been a long time since someone had me totally fooled like that! She continues to rock.

Speaking of Fina, her and Grey are now contestants in the "'Leet or Lame" votes on Cal's Forums. So is our infamous trashed payphone, and lots of other assorted 'leetos and lamers. Go exercise your right to vote!

Dentist tomorrow. That sucks, and so does that little drool vacuum thing he uses.

But at least there's snow on the ground outside! Woo!

White Christmas! YESSSSS!!!!

I love snow. I am incapable of having a bad day when it's snowing. And we've gotten a couple of inches' worth within an hour or so, with more to come.

Fina makes a godly steak sandwich. She continues to rock my toe socks.

Many gifts have been exchanged. Fina, our mom, and I exchanged on the 23rd, simply because we were too lazy to wrap stuff. I gave Fina two CDs by T.A.T.U. and she gave me a killer "I'm sorry, my fault, I forgot you were an idiot" T-shirt and lots of candles. My mom and I exchanged what may be the two most heartwarming gifts of the season - I bought her a tank of gas and she gave me two big bottles of V-8 juice.

Through my mom's petroleum, Fina's Russian fake lesbians, and my candles, T-shirt, and vegetable juice, we share our holiday love.

My sister Jo stopped by, and Fina and I ambushed her with snowballs while she was doing her makeup in the bathroom. Fina's snowball got Jo right in the eye. There was eyeliner... everywhere. Family bonding is fun!

I gave Jo one of the customized laser pointers I make all the time. More info on these when I write a page about them one day, when Grey lets me borrow her camera to document it (hint, hint...)

This morning I finally achieved my goal of the past month, and beat Final Fantasy IX! Now I need to go get roman numeral X.

Hi, my name is Rob, and I'm a Squaresoft slut.

A super cool email from El_Gordo_Uno:

Hey this is El_Gordo_Uno your friendly journal lurker. Well yeah you don't know me well (Or not at all) and such but I love your Journal it kicks butt. Anyway back to your Dec 23. post you were wondering what happened to the site. Well RBCP put an 11mb file on Linears server because he wanted the new PLA TV episode mirrored I guess. Linears host got cranky so yeah thats what happened.

I think you've probably seen my site before so I won't bother to plug it. See you around man.

Your friendly phreaker,


So that's what happened! Thanks! Gordo rocks. And his site is fun and evil!

Going to see The Two Towers tonight! I did the opening night sneak preview thing for the Fellowship movie last year, but I couldn't for this one. Maybe next year I'll plan my life (or lack thereof) around the "Return of the King" opening. Of course, by that time I should be fantastically wealthy, so I'll just pay Peter Jackson off to let me watch his copy early. Whilst sitting on his lap.

Some horrid 24-hour-virus that's making the rounds has hit three of my best friends. And I'm going to spend four or five hours with two of them tonight. What a smart person I am!

Anyway, I'm getting home around 4am. This means I'll be really tired all day at work tomorrow. But that's okay, since spending any amount of time speaking with my average customer requires so little of my normal brain activity as to actually count as sleep.

Speaking of the mall, I did every bit of holiday shopping I could today, and it appears that a great many people I know will be receiving New Years gifts from me. We apologize for the delay. Blame the President for screwing up the economy. Or just blame my boss for not giving a holiday bonus this year. That's still a step up from two years ago; I received a $20 bonus, which was docked from my next paycheck. Isn't that just precious? I laughed my ass off, and made sure everyone in the company knew about it. The comedy value was well worth the twenty.

Here's a short but fun anecdote from my life that's been drifting through my mind lately...

Years ago when I signed up with Kracked to host this site, I got a few extra email accounts which I never really use. A while back, someone I knew asked to borrow one for a while. I agreed, and didn't think much of it for a year or so.

Fast forward another year, to a point not long after I first met Grey. She needed an email account to play around with which couldn't be traced back to her, so I gallantly offered her my spare account. I was still at the "try desperately to impress her in any way that I can" stage of our relationship, and tried to do her all the geek favors I could.

All was well, until she punched up the account and was greeted by an inbox full of naughty pictures, left over by the last guy to use the thing. My jaw hit the floor, and I still remember the look she gave me.

Of course, I immediately stuttered out some semblance of the explanation, but really, what would you have thought? "Oh, right, this is some other guy's lipstick lesbians. Yep, definitely believe you."

This is one of those "much funnier years after the fact" situations.

Come to think of it, she probably still thinks they were mine. And, I still haven't stopped trying desperately to impress her in any way that I can, but I'm always like that.

Unrelated fun: For the sheer hell of it, I've mirrored a stolen copy of Abbie Hoffman's "Steal This Book." Dig?

And no, I don't know why UPL is down. I wish I did.

Mood - I sleep now.
