Phone Post: I missed my lab.

“So last night, jc, jayo, lj user, you know, that guy, was talking about how, uh, you know, he didn't wanna go to bed 'cause he know as soon as he did, PhonePost was going to go live; he was gonna miss it. And I said, you know, Murphy's Law. No matter what happens, you are going to miss it. You know, whatever can go wrong will go wrong. Um. And so, he's like, 'Yeah, you're right.' And he went to bed. And so, you know, I really wasn't all that worried about it, I figured it was going to be a whole lot later. The whole changing to ogg thing kinda pushed things back a little bit.

And then, at like, 4:30 in the morning, my time, central time, Rahaeli was on IRC, and she's like, talking about how she needed someone to post in HowTo. And, uh, you know, I took that to mean, well, the HowTo userdoc post that she was working on, the ogg one, was needed to go live, needed to go included, you know, to be referred to. Cause PhonePost went live. She kind of confirmed that. She said, I could read her mind, which, apparently is true. I don't know. I'm fairly decent at discerning things given fairly limited context, but that's generally a difficult thing in my opinion.

Anyway, so, uh, you know, I tried to stay up for like, an hour and a half, and ended up staying up until five thirty in the morning. I was supposed to get up at seven-thirty and go to class, and all that junk, but uh, I went to bed. You know, whatever, Murphy's law. And, so, went to bed. Woke up, 9:53, my alarm was off, I had no idea how that happened. Um, and I had ATE lab, that I missed; I flunked the class. In seven minutes. And so, uh, yeah, I was a bit concerned about that.

But, totally missed out on all the, uh, beginning PhonePost stuff, and, uh, Murphy's Law, did it again. But, did make it to lab, and I got through it okay, worked with BJT's, those British Junction Fan Sisters, whatever they're called. And, uh, got all that done so, this is crschmidt, and this has been a phone post.”
