But not on my birthday.
That's right, it's 12:16am on my birthday, and I'm sitting at my desk. Been here since 1pm, with only a brief intermission around 8 when I met Sonja for dinner.
So why am I posting to a blog I have neglected for so long? Because I am a terrible procrastinator. That's another reason I'm here, and will probably be here until 5pm on Monday (assuming my body holds out).
The majority of the blame for my late night tonight rests on the shoulders of a certain software company (whom I will not mention) and their rather crappy product. I have been wrestling with this pile of crap for five weeks now, and it should have taken one, maybe two at the most. I've spent more time on the phone with customer support than I have spent using the program, and even now, with our client presentation less than 15 hours away, I'm still not sure everything is going to work.
Anyway, this was a venting post because I needed to vent. The job is still going well, it's just the clients that suck. Stay tuned for the next project: anthropomorphic volleyballs!
