Well Today’s GOT to be Better

Yesterday was a pretty crappy day. The day after frisbee always starts out slightly crappy, since I’m stiff and slow-moving after running around for 2-3 hours.

But work was just a bear. It was just one thing after another, and never being able to make much progress on what I’m actually supposed to be working on. To be fair, I recently took on a project which turns out to have both a bunch of code that doesn’t work as I’d expected, and which uses technology which is new to me, so it’s been a bunch of thrashing around trying to both get oriented, and figure out how to get the code to do what I want. But then it’s everything getting in the way of that which was just hugely frustrating.

And on top of it, I had my least-favorite-weekly-meeting in the middle of the day.

So I was stressed out and very grumpy when it came time to go.

At night I went to Subrata‘s for gaming. It was not a good session. I made a boneheaded error and ended up way behind in the game we were playing, had a couple more setbacks, and ended up leaving at 10:30 because I clearly wasn’t going to win (or even come close), and the game was going to go on for a while yet. Not at all what I was hoping for out of gaming.

On the bright side, I did buy comic books. On the dark side, I only got to read two of them before going to bed. But one of them was the new Astro City, which made me happy.

Today’s gotta be a better day. I mean, it could be worse, but geez, I hope not.

  1. I actually left because the game was running quite long and I don’t usually stay past 10:30 anyway. But in addition I didn’t feel like dragging out a losing effort at the end of a bad day.

  2. BTW, that game never finished; Ziggy got hit with a sandstorm that cost him three turns, at which point everyone decided to pack it in.
