the new laptop battery arrived and is installed – having working apm again for my laptop will be a good thing. My work laptop @ p3/500’s nicer than this guy’s p2/300, but that’s ok

ok, so this is actually a post that failed to get posted yesterday (Tuesday).

saw rob, sonja, , , , micah, and (and , of course 🙂 at our yummy deliciousness that is Bali Hai – I ordered Spicy #8 but should have gotten #10 since 8 wasn’t nearly spicy enough to me. Was very nice catching up with everyone (especially , and

finally

Accepted a job at PharmaNet today – first day’s Wednesday. Should be fun stuff, and helping out clinical trials will give me tiny warm fuzzies about in some small way contributing to the advancement of medicine.

I get to work with again, which by itself makes the job 10x better than most everything else out there 🙂 For those who are playing the home game, he’s the one (of the 14) that got laid off from Porivo Sept. 6, 2001 that and myself begged and groveled to not be let go. Letting him go was just another horrible decision in the reign of Gordon, the idiotic CEO (at the time).

Anyway, back on topic – yeah, starting at PharmaNet 🙂 That means no having to move to Boston, which as most of you remember, is the critical thing since our house will be done in a month or so. Yay!

whoa – finally saw an old Crank Yankers and saw the “Special Ed – I’ve Got Mail!” bit – the linux inside poster in the background (i’ve seen it lots of other places before) is cute.

game was crazy fun! I forgot to mention it was an all-star charity game of ex-players and other NBA players – Juan Dixon dropped in 40, Darrell (sp?) Armstrong had 30, Dunleavy had 27 I think, Battier had a few great shots. Morris Peterson didn’t meet a shot he didn’t like, especially 3’s. I think the final was like 162-154 – the halftime was like 84-78 or something. crazy stuff! A couple nice alley’s to Magette, Laettner and Ferry had decent games. Rodney Rogers showed his usual great outside touch. Ricky Price had a couple nice slashes. Jaren Jackson had some nice plays. It was sad that Grant couldn’t play, and Boozer/Avery didn’t seem to show up – maybe traffic problems 🙂

Anyway, it was very fun 🙂

tonight should be fun! had an extra ticket for the Duke b-ball game tonight so I’m doing dinner with him and his parents then the game (calling it that is typically a misnomer, since it’s more a CLINIC! hehe 🙂

Anyway, should be a blast. Ryan’s last night in NC (or second to last) since he’s moving to Boston this weekend. I wish him well!

During my morning 2 hour run (2 1-hour shows and a half-hour show now) the end show was last night’s Daily Show – I can’t remember what the joke was, but I laughed so hard I had to stop running. Ack. Guess I should stick with more mundane stuff that doesn’t evoke as much of a physiological response?

the pain of dialup is taking 5 minutes to down the *installer* for something, knowing that the installer (which fetches packages for the “real installation”) is going to take a few hours to run.

Pain, pain, and more pain.
