Crazy week!

So much work this week starting on Monday for the old worker ant. On Tuesday night (before 7:55 PM PDT), the home theater personal computer (HTPC) did not record and show anything due to no signal from the powerful over the air (OTA) antenna. It was working just fine before going to work during 8 AM PDT! At first, it was thought of the weak signals, but other channels and television/TV tuners were OK. Your overlord investigated and experimented for the next three/3 nights. It seems like one of Technisat Air2PC-ATSC-PCI, from late 2005, seemed to have died since computer could see the broken card but it couldn't get any signals. Time to get a new computer TV tuner. :(

Ugh, this week sucks already ...

... duey toey pasty BUSY crazy family Sunday, almost monthly dentist appointment and a 4.25 hours meeting with its OK free dinner yesterday, more meetings and trainings/classes, early and longer weekday hours, trying to get used to the new annoying electric toothbrush, hot weekend (why can't it be on the work days instead?), work's people changes, new television/TV/telly episodes begin (why not delay it for another week since this week is bad), not sleeping enough and well (kept waking up), next door neighbor got (robb/burglariz)ed, clients' and work's electronics (HDTV, computers, etc.) issues, people suck, etc.

2/Two Streaks Right Now...

Your old tired overlord has been passing out early after 10:00 PM PDT with a toothbrush and analog bone conduction hearing aid, waking up two hours later for a few hours, and then back to sleep again for three/3 days in a row so far.

Woah, a hibernation and not feeling well ...

Yesterday's late afternoon, your old hot overlord started not to feel good with some aches (mostly on left leg), leaky salivas, tired, etc. Napping didn't work well due to the darn hot weather even with central air conditioner (AC) on (not enough cold air). Even vomitted in the throat after drinking too much of a non-alcohol (don't like alcohol) Snapple fruit juice. Oops. At night, your ant passed out early as 9:45 PM PDT or so, with a toothbrush for a couple hours. Oops. And then, woke up to shower at about 1 AM PDT and pass out again (woke up a couple times like after 5 AM PDT [should had stayed up!) to pee/urinate until 7:09 AM PDT. Aches seems to be mostly gone and not so tired? Now, it is time to stay cool AGAIN for later today (felt cooler at night finally!) and catch up today before the long weekend ends for work week again. :(

Natural Selection 2's free weekend and a brief review!

Natural Selection 2 game has a free weekend (ends on Sunday at 1:00 PM PDT?) event going on for both Windows and Linux gamers. Your overlord got this game as a gift for Christmas 2012 and it was addicting during that vacation like the original game.

Annoying neighbor's dog/canine!

What a weird and crazy morning outside of the big ant nest beside the heat wave (80+F degrees)... A neighbor dog, from up the hills, wanted to hang out with the overlord's family. We did not want it to hang out, but the dog kept coming.

Too hot!

100F degrees during the day time, and still about 80F degrees after 7 PM PDT! Your old worker ant is glad to be working for those days! The upcoming longer long weekend doesn't seem to cool off much though.

Your worker ant's annual major project is done again!

It was a or two day(s) late (not surprised by its delays like in the past). Amazingly, no overtime/OT work and its free meals at all for this year even though your worker ant was on call for almost three weekends. That must be a first after eleven/11 years. Hopefully, the management don't do a recall/change their minds like in the past due to last minute post-declaration issues found. :/

Today's Monday sucks so far...

Your old tired overlord woke up after 1:30 AM PDT from passing out after last night's 10:30 PM PDT (amazingly slept through loud remodelling and moving noises, with the hearing aid on, from the king and queen) and felt sick with allergies again.

So many con(vention)s over the weekend!

Def Con, VidCon, Assembly, QuakeCon, etc. Why all at once? Obvously, your overlord didn't go due to their far away distances, prices, on call with work, being there all day (too long), etc.

Ugh.

Dang wet dreams even after peeing and sleeping for about 1.5 hours! Your old overlord did not even drink anything since dinner time (about 9:30 PM PDT)! Stupid defected body again! :(

A grumpy and pissy day.

Almost everyone seems to be pissy, grumpy, yelly, etc. today since this mawning. FML! :(

"I used to think that the brain was the most wonderful organ in my body. Then I realized who was telling me this."

From Emo Philips and your overlord's DSL/Broadband Reports' forum post's fortune.

BUSY

Ugh, crazy humid work week for your old worker ant. Next week will be crazier with three full days of class/course/training. :(

Anyways, your overlord is not offline with the Internet.

Today sucks.

  • Woke up too early at about 2:22:22:22 AM PDT due to the queen ant making noises and your tired overlord passing out after 9:53 PM PDT last night. Only slept for over an hour before leaving for work.
