My Computer Died

Hard drive failure. Ike is not a happy trout. It was working saturday and then it would not reboot. Chcdsk gave the error along the lines of blah blah blah unrecoverable errors. ick.

Currently booting with knoppix and copying out as much of the data as I can to another partition. Then later this week, I will reinstall everything. Ick. Ick Ick. No fun.

A good day at work

I show up for work today at 9AM, a little behind schedule.   I do work for about half an hour when someone comes over and tells me that today is the day the interns get to go to the Met's game.  Turns out, we had extra tickets, so I left work at 10:30, went to the Mets game - Picnic area / bleachers.  After the Mets game, I went straight home. 

Every once in a while, the job can be satisfying.  Of course, I didn't bring a hat and now my forehead is very bright red.  Sunburn.  Ouch.

I Passed

Finally, passed the stupid actuarial exam.  Now, I am more than half way there.  (Sing along..  pretend you are from Jersey, which I am not, thank goodness)

Build a Bear Article

There is an article on the The New York Times > Magazine > Build a Bear stores in the mall in the New York Times Sunday Magazine.

Does anyone else find the animal shells a little disturbing. it seems to me like the opposite of a hunter. Hunter shoots animal, and then gets a bear skin rug out of the deal. Build a Bear person, takes bear skin rug and fills it with stuff.

Scary don't you think.

LAUNCH: Music on Yahoo!

Today at work, I am listening to my radio station on yahoo. (LAUNCH: Music on Yahoo!). I just got a song by William Hung. Rocketman. I am disturbed. Scary. I dislike William hung. Everything he stands for. This really upset me.
