eruthros: Delenn building the crystal machine in season 1  of B5, captioned "foreshadowing" (B5 - Delenn incredible foreshadowing)
It is 11:00 am and no-one on my friends list has posted since 6:00 am.

I mean, I know it's just barely 9 am for you folks on the West Coast, but still... not a post. Not from either coast. (And then I start sounding like Dr. Seuss.) Not even metaquotes! I started to wonder if someone had disabled metaquotes. Because that's five whole hours. Five hours! Someone's bound to post something not-funny to metaquotes every half hour! I start to worry about you all when no-one posts...

I finished my work for the day at 9:15 this morning, and have read many news sources. (I need to thank [livejournal.com profile] fiatlouis for the salon.com subscription he got me for my birthday -- salon.com is very useful for whiling away these hours.)

Irritatingly, my supervisor has suddenly declared that I can't read books at my desk when the db is down, because he's worried people will get tetchy at him for not finding enough work for me (no, really?). He decided this, of all times, when my entire computer was downstairs with IT. I fail to see how me not having anything to do without a computer would reflect badly on him, but whatever.

This is especially annoying because I've been reading a lot of fun books lately. I went through a brief Ursula K. Le Guin and Emma Bull phase, so I read a lot of books about being alone in a strange world, about alienation, about being strange and unique and misunderstood.

eruthros: Delenn from Babylon 5 with a startled expression and the text "omg!" (BtVS cheeseman nonsense)
I don't know who writes the headlines for sfgate.com, but clearly they've got plenty of free time. The first of these two headlines was changed sometime recently; it was different when I first checked sfgate.com this morning. Now, though:

Great Day For 'Hubba Hubba'
Great Day For 'Ugga Bugga'

The first, of course, being the article on masturbation and prostate cancer, and the second being an article on the dismissal of charges against SF's Bushman (who shouts "ugga bugga" at passers-by).
