Watched "Magnolia" last night, first time I'd seen it since it was in theaters. Understood it a lot better this time, and even picked up a lot more of the "82" references which are, literally, all over the place. I've had Aimee Mann songs stuck in my head all day, too, and there ain't nothing wrong with that.

It's an absolutely miserable day today in NYC. The weather report this morning said light rain, clearing up by this afternoon. I went for a smoke break about an hour ago and stepped into the middle of a monsoon. Of course, I'm totally unprepared in terms of rain gear, like that's anything unusual. Thankfully the office is pretty quiet and I haven't had a hell of a lot to do just yet.

Tonight, hopefully, I'm gonna get some work done on heybro.com; I know, I know, about friggin' time. The 3 of us have had some pretty cool ideas in terms of content, and as Jongre is both unemployed and equipped with the most kick-ass computer setup, he'll most likely be in charge of putting up whatever it is we end up doing. I think there's a preliminary Bad Scrabble Hands page up there already...

Christ. One of the partners here just called me up and asked me to go through, literally, over 6000 pages of unorganized documents to find three (3) letters. Meanwhile it's almost 1pm and noone else that I work with is here, so I'm manning the phones and not eating lunch. They're gonna kill me one of these days. I need to get a snack or something.

My mood's gone from somewhat grumpy to downright pissed off. I'm totally alone here. I'm nic-fitting in a rather unpleasant way. I'm fucking STARVING. My supervisor isn't even in the building, so there's no one I can actually talk to about this. What a day. Plus it's still pouring, as far as I can tell.

Is it still raining? I can't tell. It's been several hours since I've left my chair, mouth agape, blankly staring at the sort-of trippy RealPlayer visualization that has absolutely nothing to do with this Lilys CD. It's cool that my typing has gotten to the point where I can stare at it and type at the same time, although the fact that I think that's cool should indicate how low I've sunk today. At this point I suppose I should be grateful that the CD player on this machine doesn't shred the discs themselves while crashing my computer.

As I meant to say before, tonight is a heybro.com meeting, and I'm very much looking forward to it. We've got several ideas on the table, including a new novelty Monopoly board, more Bad Scrabble Hands, and a "Choose Your Own Adventure" thing. Plus we've got to figure out a new place to host the damn thing. We bought the name and the server space over a year ago and we've done pretty much nothing with it. Good planning.

Nearly 4pm now. Today is really dragging. The woman left work early - I'm gonna call her and interrupt her Zelda session.
