Update of the Day: So, yeah, no updates for the last few days, and nothing on the weekend. Sorry. Have been really unusually busy lately. We worked late both Monday and Tuesday getting stuff ready for a software milestone yesterday. I’ve had the thrilling joy of dealing with and fighting various Cisco applications – their standard IPSec VPN client doesn’t support 64 bit Windows, at all, and they have no plan of doing so, their ADSM remote management app for the firewall for the new server is buggy and breaks in a frustrating manner (just sits there spinning its wheels forever until it’s end-tasked) on any version of Java newer than 1.6 Update 7, and a whole host of minor little things. All resolved, thus far, but extraordinarily time consuming.
I also ran my Dad around for various vehicle rodeo tasks Monday and Tuesday as he was getting his truck worked on (mostly annual maintenance stuff) at Jimmy’s shop (World Class Automotive, I highly recommend him for any domestic or Japanese import work). He sprung for lunch both days, and both Monday and Tuesday I was bad, breaking my diet repeatedly. 2 days of carb devouring, up 2 pounds. Yeah, so I started back pretty severely limiting my carb intake yesterday.
Monday night, I had a late, impromptu date with J . . . we went to a strip club, Jaguar’s Gold Club. I hope their busier days/nights are better than Monday nights, because it was like a parade of some of the skinniest girls I’ve ever seen. There were maybe 3 or 4 dancers there with honestly attractive bodies – seriously, there were half a dozen girls there that were just scary, like 12 year old heroin user girl, skinny. They didn’t need to eat a sammich so much as a deli. Then yesterday, after work, talking J on the phone . . . she tells me a lot of stuff that I probably should have been made aware of a lot earlier. I’ve come to the conclusion that she has basically been using me for money (not too much, but still, principle involved) and ego boosts (a lot of there). Rather irritating.
Went and visited Ivy and Kodi last night, we hung out and talked and tried some decent wine, 7 Deadly Zins, which Ivy wants me to write up a “an old-Joe-style review” for. It might happen.
