What sick cult have I gotten myself into. I am beat. I will believe that my name is Ken and that you are my friend. whatever. Just give me some food and some sleep. doing this move from the Santa Monica office to the Culver City office is KILLING me. I am going on my 69th hour of work this week. I did 16 yesterday and 12 thursday and friday besides the eight I put in each day before coming down. Most of these days have been so long that I have barely gotten any sleep. I got 7 hours last night and 6 the night before. My brain had been beat down. I need at least 8 to really function. I'm not young anymore.

Thursday and Friday were both pretty much a complete waste of my time. I had to wait in a office with nothing. no phones, no internet, no seats, just cubicles. Let me just say that sitting on a cubicle for hours will make your back hurt as well as your ass. I had to wait for different vendors to show up and install the wires to make the office "internet ready" even though I had so much to do in order to make the move happen this weekend. nobody else could help me wait for the vendors. Everyone else was too busy making sure there that there was no trash left anywhere in the old office. That cannot wait until monday. Each night after the vendors would leave I had to rush to the old office and start packing up stuff, bring down servers and move them to the new office. Friday was so stressful because I only had an hour to drive from Culver City to Santa Monica unhook the router drive back and configure it in time to have SBC activate our connection before they closed- During rush hour traffic. I made it. My lungs felt like they were bleeding from all the running in the smog. Oh and I was doing all this on practically no food. I since I was spending the days alone in the office I couldn't leave or risk things falling apart even more. I kept attempting to call for delivery but every time I started my phone would ring with someone telling me another thing I needed to do or a person I needed to call.

I had really hoped to meet up with shane and visit my parents, but since I Have had no time to do anything let alone get lunch, I haven't had a chance. Things are still going badly, we are trying to get the VPN to the other offices working... It's not going well. I am tired of all this hurry up an wait.

I am destroyed. my hands hurt (the electric screwdriver broke) my head hurts (I banged it) my feet hurt (carrying/holding 70 lb. servers) my back hurts, my tummy is hungry, I'm tired and I am whining. I hate this. I could go on for too long about everything - oh wait, too late!

Must-Keep-Positive! At least i was able to have dinner with Wendi and David and see Phinny, Kirsten, and Melanie for a few minutes before I kicked them out of the hotel room so I could sleep.

I have a couple of parties I've been invited to. Maybe I will be taking you with me! My friend Jason is having a tacky Christmas tree decorating party. Everyone is supposed to bring a homemade (elementary school style) ornament. his parties always had lots of interesting people and lots of crashers so you are completely welcome. What time are you getting in... Maybe I can pick you up at the airport.

I don't think I will be able to pick you up that early... do you still have my number? I have been locked out of LJ at work so I haven't been able to find your new Email Address or anything. Should I email you at robbtd_lj at robbtd.net? What all do you have planned? email me at macboysf at yahoo.com that way I can continue to make plans while at work tomorrow.
