Today is FIRED.

First it was getting a vague, seemingly benign email saying "remember, today's meeting is at the office". Uh, OK... Then coming to find out my normal 10AM dialin was overlapped with a new meeting that my whole group had to attend. The reason why they changed it? To play fucking Pictionary. Yeah. Not like BOTH of my print servers were going apeshit and none of the L2s were doing anything about it. It just goes on and gets dumber from there, so I'll just resign to my fate and get back to work now.

But don't forget, playing Pictionary is vital for team building skills.

Last time we played Pictionary, my team lost because a guy had to draw "The Three Little Pigs", drew a straight red line, sat down and gave up.

you've really got to be sleeping with someone to achieve that level of telepathy. hehe.

Surprisingly, this time it was like the team I was on _was_ telepathic. I barely drew a rock with a couple lines flowing over it and someone correctly guessed "Niagra Falls". None of our turns took more than 10 seconds. No, I'm not humping anyone at work.

Reminds me of that Family Guy episode: "Jackal! It's a jackal! Is it a jackal?" haha

Also, I thought I commented to your comment on my journal, but apparently it didnt take, so yeah, I'll give you a call when everything comes in. I am getting a package on Thursday, but FedEx doesn't show my case being in it, even though Newegg's site says that it was shipped out...confusion. Anyway, I'll give you a call like I said, get directions, bring you alcohol for being such a wonderful techie, whatever. Thanks again, and jobs always suck, I think that Pictionary is a small price to pay.

Ahh, the mysteries of FedEx. Usually you can call NewEgg and they can straighten everything out.
