It's wet outside - rainy as hell, and it shows no signs of letting up any time soon. I'm sure that will put a damper on all of the Mardi Gras parades going on this weekend. Or not. A little rain has never stopped any southern Louisianaians that I know from an excuse to drink and party (which is all Mardi Gras really is). Partying is taken seriously in this state - hell, we even have off work & school on Fat Tuesday itself.
I had a great weekend. A group of friends (8 of us) rented a cabin at Tickfaw State Park for the weekend and just chilled. Well, we really just drank a lot and played a lot of cards, but I consider that very relaxing. It was a kickass time, and something we plan to do again soon.
And has anyone seen the Quizno's creepy rats commercial yet? I haven't, though I've been trying to catch it since my friends were all singing parts of the song the entire weekend. Even though I haven't seen it yet, "They've got a pepper bar" in a raspy, sing-song voice repeats over and over in my head.
I had a great slap-myself-in-exasperation i.t. moment yesterday. Due to the latest influx of emailed viruses a week or so ago, our agency's data center had decided to block all attachments with certain extensions. A gentleman came into my office yesterday and said he was having trouble opening a .zip file that had been sent to him in email. I didn't know if the restriction had been removed or not, so I asked him, "Did Our-Company-Email-Virus-Protection-Program remove the file?" If it does, it tells you so not only in the Subject line but in the body of the email - hard to miss. He claimed it hadn't. I told him to forward it to me and let me have a look at it.
I wasn't, however, surprised to get an email a few minutes later with the subject line:
"Blah-Blah Reports File (OCEVPP has removed a file)"
Jeez. And these people make more than me. A lot more than me.
That's it for me - my brain is dead this week.
