Metropolis Work

Another super-quick update and a Week of Suck

Christmas rocked. My birthday rocked. The Cyborg New Year party rocked. I'm still over a week behind reading LiveJournal. :-(

Kim and I went to see her mom and step dad last weekend. It was fun and a good trip, but I found out that my father-in-law isn't entirely convinced that man has walked on the moon. This deserves its own post, but I have absolutely no time right now and would have to learn many, many new curse words in order to begin to accurately convey my feelings on the subject. Suffice to say that I'm very proud of myself for having enough self-control to refrain from just getting out of the (moving) car when he dropped that into the conversation, having spent a couple of hours just last week debating hoax-believers on YouTube. (I know it's largely a waste of time, but there are certain things that I just can't let slide.)

However, the big thing going on right now is the beginning of my Week of Suck. Again, no time to give the full details, but the bottom line is that I found out on Friday that The Corporation needs me to fly out to Tulsa for a week. This week. As in my plane leaves in less than 5 hours, and I will be without my friends and smooshlings until late Friday night.

This sucks beyond the telling of it. I don't mind traveling too terribly much, but I simply can't stand being away from my peeps for any length of time. (Yes, you're all now officially "my peeps". Get used to it. ;-) ) I mean, I get antsy if I go 12 hrs without seeing femetal. But seeing nobody, for a week? Gah!

I'm not even going to ask if there's anything worth doing in Oklahoma. I'm pretty sure I already know the answer. :-(
