Where's tribdog - I'm in a really bad mood

    I'm in a REALLY BAD mood tonight. :grumpy:

    My day started out having to eat breakfast at a local gambling casino with my co-workers. Do you know what kind of people eat breakfast at a casino at 8am??? Ok, you don't want to know. Then the cashier tells us there is a 10% gratuity added to parties of 8 or more (there were 8 of us), she tells us that will be 80 cents each. :rofl: :rofl: (yes we left the poor waitress an additional tip)

    And this darn webcam isn't working right. :devil: Look at this, I just took it. :mad: And if I put a klieg light on so the picture isn't as grainy, I look like the Bride of Frankenstein. :surprised

    Someone say something and make me feel better!!!!!!!

    Sorry, I don't know any good neck-bolt jokes. :rofl:

    Hmm.. I would have expected casino food to cost more. Im not exactly of age to enter casinos, but given the tip and gratutity she requested, it seemed like a decent sized meal, but then again, this was breakfast you are talking about. Maybe im just confusing myself.

    I shall proceed to answer your question to cater to different personalities :biggrin:. Enjoy the fairly stupid, hastily-written generalizations hehe.

    1. (the optimist) Cheer up, your day will get better!
    2. (the pessimist) Be lucky it isnt worse. At least you didn't die.
    3. (the alcoholic) Nothing that some booze wont fix.
    4. (the yoda-way) Look at your day; improve it you must.
    5. (some random alien) Hrjoof? Sin'yt so irhigt iuh yoopa kawa-siht pahrka!

    Hmm... how random. Perhaps I should getback to studying, after all I have a test tomorrow.

    I'm not sure what kind of compliments would be appropriate for someone my age to give you, but while the quality of the picture is grainy, you definately don't look anywhere near the bride of Frankenstein.

    Thanks motai! Well, I've got the booze and extra chunky peanut butter, but things still aren't looking up. :frown:

    Ivan, in real life, I'm actually distantly related to the Bride of Frankenstein. :bugeye:

    What is wrong with the camera? Just grainy? What make&model?

    *grunt*... I'm in a worse mood :tongue2:

    I spit out code for the past few days (about 2000 lines worth) only to find out my teammates stuff didn't match up with mine....

    2000 lines worth 7% of my final.... (the hours put in are worth more than seven measly percent :yuck: )

    Time due? 11:59 PM .... time on my electronic submission (after hammering on it all day)? 11:59 :biggrin:

    Well, Evo, your day started bad, mine ended bad. We can work on cheering each other up. Me...I was just attempting to replace a drippy faucet valve in my shower, which I thought would take me a half hour at most. It took a bit longer than I planned because everything was pretty corroded and took a lot more persuading to unscrew than it was supposed to...until that last bit of the valve stem that decided to stay put and the wrench turned a square hole into a round one. Oh, and this is the shower that has no shut-off valve to it, so I had the whole house water off to do this project and was at a point where I couldn't turn it back on without flooding the house. Of course I got to that sticking point right about 9 PM...when all the stores that would carry plumbing supplies close. Fortunately, there's one 24 hour department type store that had 1/2" copper caps (and not much of anything else). So, in the interest of turning my water on tonight, I have now cut the old faucet diverter thingy out (I'm not exactly sure what that's called because I hadn't planned on getting a new one) and capped off the pipe. Tomorrow I get to replace the whole thing, pipes and all. I will definitely be installing a shut-off valve while I'm at it. This isn't what I planned for my evening.

    Tsu, I'm going to need a lot more of that green apple vodka before I decide it tastes good with cookies :yuck: Kahlua and cream goes much better with cookies. [send Kahlua bottle to Evo and Tsu]

    The camera is a Logitech cheapo, but the quickcam I got from them years ago was much better.

    singleton, sorry to hear about your troubles, but mine are far worse. :biggrin: :devil:

    Tsunami, mmmmmm, cookies and vodka, who could ask for more. :approve: I will send you all the details.

    Moonbear, a much more "productive" night than mine. :biggrin: Sounds like you need the cookies and alcohol more than me. :approve: Hey, I make the world's best fruitcake...no seriously, people that HATE fruitcake love mine. Ok, get ready for some of Evo's WORLD FAMOUS FRUITCAKE coming your way this holiday season. :biggrin: :biggrin:

    Oooh, fruitcake...yum! I used to think I hated fruitcake because the only kind I ever had were those celophane wrapped bricks they sell at Christmas time, then I had a homemade fruitcake a coworker made, and it was fantastic!

    This poem usually helps a friend of mine when she's having a bad day.

    Love Sonnet XVII
    Pablo Neruda

    I do not love you as if you were a salt rose, or topaz
    or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
    I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
    in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

    I love you as the plant that never blooms
    but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
    thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
    risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

    I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
    I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
    So I love you because I know no other way

    than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
    so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
    so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.

    Gosh, Evo. If Chrono's poem doesn't make you feel better, I fear NOTHING will! :cry: Here. Have another cookie. <stuffs cookie> And another martini. Need help to bed? :surprised :rofl: :rofl:

    LOL. The only reason she wants tribdog here is because tribdog's life is worse and she can feel better about herself.

    I'm feeling better today, although with a vodka cookie hangover. :bugeye:

    I'm going to have to buy a new web cam. :grumpy:

    Chrono, thanks for the poem! :smile:

    Smurf, are you saying I look like the wicked witch? :devil: Pokes smurf with her pitchfork. :devil:

    Sorry I'm late. Evo you are flat out gorgeous. I'm sorry you've had a bad day, but by seeing you my day has improved incredibly. the only light you could ever look bad in would be no light at all. I'm not positive about that however, so perhaps we could spend a little while together in the dark?
