I'm taking the day off work. :D

Of course, I don't think i'll account for any lost productivity. My servers don't go down.

I'm going Saturday. Why miss a days work when I can see it 2 days later on a day-off?

Pack of frigging dorks. I just watched Triumph insulting geeks in Times Square from AOTC.... gawd I love that video :D

I'd post a link if I had a place to host it. It is far too large to attach (17MB... 10+minutes of hilarity)

I won't pay that much for a movie anymore. I must be getting really old because about 95% of what Hollywierd turns out is no better than what I turn out in the porcelin bowl at about 10am every day.

I'm working for my dad the next two days because the guy that normally works in his office took two days off for the new Star Wars.
I'm still going to see it, probably even the midnight showing, but I don't have to take off work... :shake:
