Crunch Time

Crunch time is officially over at $EMPLOYER. Whether we managed to complete everything remains to be seen. Whatever the case, I'm now on vacation; we're having a company-sponsored "late lunch" starting as soon as we walk out the door and I'm taking next week off for Thanksgiving.

In unrelated news, I have a bad feeling I managed to kill my four-year-old wireless phone, so I may have to get a horrid new one in the near future. I'm actually very slightly tempted to get a Palm-based smartphone; I'll have to do a bit of research before I head to my nearest Sprint Store.

Ok, well, the most obvious problem with [new years resolution
about getting a girlfriend] is that the intended outcome relies on
variables which are out of my control. It's a matter of chance,
luck, being in the right place at the wrong time, what have you.
Obviously, it also relies on the willful participation of
another human being. Since the only people we control are
ourselves, making resolutions -- promises to ourselves -- which
require the involvement of others, who may or may not want any
part of the game, is like sitting at home and cheering a
football team, and then saying "We won! We won!" when in fact
you had absolutely nothing to do with any of it. Or something
like that.
