So a day that starts out tired and cold can end up with a fit of depression and angst. I remember these days. I don’t think its the rain, I’ve been feeling like this for a few days, and in fact if anything, the rain is only improving my mood by making me feel just in my decision to be depressed again.

I love the cold though, so there is that.

We got hacked again in the lab, four more machines marked down due to copyright violation. That depresses me too, it’s like no matter what I do, the lab is going to be a problem still. I hate hackers with a passion now. Let me rephrase that, I hate malicious hackers. I wish I could get a hold of the people who were doing this to me, the people who were putting me through this and kick them squah in the nutz. I guess the bittersweet news is that the network security people are pretty sure that it’s an outside hack so there’s at least not a student coming into my lab setting all this up. I get so suspicious of people in the lab now, I have rules that need to be enforced but are hard to actually catch people. I hate to be a Nazi, but I almost want cameras in the lab just to see what students are doing with MY computers.

Today, after everything else, I came home and our house guest had let my dog eat a remote control. Fortunately it was one that we barely use, but still, it’s just something to add to the emotional pile. Ia’s a good dog, but she still needs to be watched closely, but apparently I’m the only one who realizes that. When she’s not in her cage or outside, I’m sitting with her keeping one eye on her and paying attention to what goes in her mouth. She’s a puppy, so I realize she’s going to do things like that, but she shouldn’t be given the opportunity. I’m just glad all the gaming books had been put up already, that’s the last thing I need is for her to eat a gaming book.

I picked up UT2K3, or rather, I got it in the mail yesterday. I’ve only had a chance to play it a couple times, I’m still rather hooked on Animal Crossing, so I’m not sure which to play when I get home.

As you can see, I’ve been listening to a lot of Dead Can Dance lately, that pretty much states my recent state of emotion. Hmmmm, and coffee, I’ve had coffee on the brain a lot lately. I think it’s just because it’s been cold and Heather happened to buy a really good coffee the other day, strangely enough it’s a simple flavored Maxwell House (don’t worry, at least it’s not an instant coffee).

American Dreaming, does this song know that I love it?

Oh well, is that enough for today? Now to decide if I’m going to play UT2K3 or Animal Crossing.
