aM i a nErD a GeEk oR nEiThEr??

urk! i can't imagine how it could get much worse. i could SWEAR that i had booked my tickets a week ago! but then i check last night, and OMG, i couldn't find the paperwork! it never went through!! so here i am two days before i need to leave without a ticket! what will happen???? [ 2 days later... ] ok i'm on a flight to portland.. phew.. made it on time. but curses !!! i've got a united ticket... though it's operated by conti.. so that's a good thing.. but then the seats are so terrible, i got a terrible neck and shoulder ache... but they DO have direct tv, which is ofcourse not free, so not at all helpful.. argh!! i hate conti. saw an episode of new girls. hmm i like this quirky crazy female.. though she is a little too crazy if you know what i mean. it's sad to think of what i've become. sat evening, i spent configuring my VirtualBox on my windows host to behave perfectly or even better than the machine in the lab. it's so perfect it brings tears of joy to my eyes... no more downloading and uploading files to my machine .. stupid windows to linux limitations. now i simply have a shaerd folder and voila ! i'm in heaven. and then ofcourse it's been a while since i watched some star trek. silly costumes, completely fake looking sci fi stuff and jean luc picard... there isn't a better way of spending a sat evening, yes and that includes looking at the silly makeup for data. you can clearly see the "android" getting older and saggier. Riker .. poor riker. after 6 seasons, he just looks drunk , or stoned or beer'd up. speaking of beer, we went to niagra for the long weekend. was awesome ! i don't think i could have imagined how awesome it could be. after that we went to a vineyard and that's where i was amazed to see my FIL try some wine!! woohoo.... go FIL!! sleepy now. yaaawn. jet lag catching up. i gotta go back and play with my new linux box.
