Is It Friday Yet?  - bulletproofbabe

A Monday Without TSCC

I don't want to make it sound like I single handedly hold up my firm, because I don't, but if I'm gone just one day and things get chaotic. How is it going to be when I'm gone a week?

I was up into the wee hours of the morning with my mind racing as I thought, "OMG, I HAVE LESS THAN TWO WEEKS UNTIL MY VACATION AND SO MUCH TO DO!" This panic was only in small part due to work. The good part of the lack of sleep was that it may have finally hit me that I procrastinate too damn much. This isn't just on things I should be doing, but things I want to do. For instance, we had a twelve month BSG hiatus and did I write any of the fic I wanted to write? Or work on my carckish Hornblower fic idea? What happened to the drawings I wanted to do? Or all the TV show rewatches I planned to do during the strike? I just need to stop thinking and start doing. Hopefully, this epiphany will stick.

pellucid posted a very thought provoking post today on shipping, what constitutes shipping, who we ship, and why we ship who we do. Some great discussion in comments ensued too. :)

inlovewithnight found a New York Times article in which, Surprise!...Not!, Microsoft knew Vista was a turkey. I smell a class action settlement in their future.

Jobs tend to reach a critical mass when it comes to time away - a crunch point where people either go "yup, we have a problem" and work out how to survive without you, or they throw their hands up in the air and just allow the catastrophe to happen...

Thanks for the two links - I was giggling at the Microsoft one, and not just because my temperature's up to silly digits after getting repeatedly frozen and drenched earlier this week. I imagine Microsoft will win, but hopefully it'll cost them.

The shipping link is interesting - it's one of those that I'm itching to respond too, but with four days out of the office this week out of five, I doubt I'm going to get the chance. At least one person commented on John and Delenn from B5, who were the main "ship", but who didn't interest me that much; when I think of a ship in B5, I think of G'kar and Londo... not because I wanted them to hook up (that would just be... really, really bad) but because watching the two of them onscreen together really was some of the best B5 experiences I had. The two of them sparkled on screen, whether they were hating and loathing each other or working together.

Hmm, I need to upgrade my icon count and get some B5 icons installed...

Oh, and I have to share some good news... my FNL S1 DVDs have arrived! *bounces* It took them an extra 13 days to get here because apparently, Frankfurt is on the way from the US to the UK. Who'd have thought it?
I'm trying to figure out if the US or UK is to blame for miscalculating where Frankfurt is. :p I'll be interested to see what you think about the show.
