Off a Day

I was thinking this morning about my schedule for the rest of the week, and realized I was off an entire day. I kept saying that today was Wednesday. That really fucks up a lot of my plans.

Verizon's 45 seconds to 45 day wait time for installations is really getting on my nerves. *Still* no phone line at the house, which means *still* no DSL, although we did get the Speakeasy modem in the mail this morning. Since we already have the one from MV (Which is nicer), I may end up dropping it onto eBay once we're sure the old modem can do the job.

Commute time this morning (in which I didn't get lost at all):

Erie St. to 93: 12 minutes (6:48->7:00
93 to Mass/NH border: 19 minutes (7:00 -> 7:19)
Mass/NH Border to wedu: 26 minutes (7:19->7:45)

A large chunk of that time was spent coming around 293: I think I got on 2:93 at 7:37, but it was a mess: crowded, and some guy almost drove into me trying to get ahead in a merge.

So much work to do. My parents are getting in today at noon thirty, and wanted me to stop by the farm tonight, but I'm thinking that I'm going to have to be late at work tonight, so that's not going to happen.

Amusement of the day: Some porn site apparently added a bunch of random email addresses to a mailman list. The first I got from it was a bounce message, before I even got the first message sent to the list. I've since gotten a half dozen bounce messages, some spam, and one "If you don't take me off your list, I will fuck your server up, you understand?"

People amuse me.

London Bombings

Similarly to the 9/11 attacks, it seems that the importance of the London attacks didn't hit me until several hours after they happened. For 9/11, it was when I first heard "The towers are completely gone." For London, it was seeing all the posts on my friends page calling out to make sure people were okay.

My heart goes out to all of you, and especially to all those caught in the blasts.

My mind right now is on my friends in the London area, but I do have one thing that's buoying my spirit in that regard right now: How many people on LiveJournal have to get up and get to work at 9 in the morning?
