FEAST
Subject means nothing. I will post in this stupid thing. I will in fact post to say that Feren and Lady_Curmudgeon (I dont know if there is a hyphen or not) are two of the finest people in the known universe. Thank you to both of you.

Maybe criristmas is real?? Probably not though
After everything that has happened with my guitars and this morning maybe christmas mariacles do happen. The guitar thing I dont really feel like getting in to because it is a terribly long story and only ends well for me and no one else really understands it. As for this morning.....well fucking get this. I was told I can take friday and next tuesday off?? WITH PAY EVEN!!!!! I am going to be allowed to take vacation!!!!!!!!!!!! Regardless of this mariacle I will note that perrogrande, it is 2007 and you still owe me a plague of locusts in june. we made an agreement when I sold you my sould

Now the grim reality of this is that I will probably still be paged, but here is to hoping. Now it really wouldnt be a complete journal entry from me if I didnt cry about something. After all in the words of perrogrande, I am a "Big girl"

So today's rant is that WHY THE HELL ARE INFASTRUCTURE PEOPLE BLAMED FOR EVERYTHING. Now before I get flooded with lectures about the fact that I am an enterprise level engineer even posing this question in the first place. I know the answer to my question, this is my journal fuck you I will rant about what I want. This whole thing is spurred on my a mountain of coincidence and not one of those "Have you seen my mole hill?? i swear I left it over there by that mountain of yours" I was regaled this morning of a tale from a friend how somebody's DBA cant seem to understands what sort of requirements are needed to run their own god damn databases. Who was blamed?? Infastructure, who got told to have it fixed by last week?? Infastructure. Is it their fault or even problem?? Is it the unix engineer's fault or problem?? No something tells me that the network runs as flawlessly as allowed and the unix platforms are as tight as can be. The simple matter of it is the DBA's cant even wrap their mind around what they need to support their shitty apps.

Now what does this have to do with me?? Simple, this afternoon after hearing this story I get called into my boss's office. I will note that he looks very healthy so he must be feeling much better. He is blaming me and my engineering group because the Systems Engineer's servers keep corrupting the Exchange server database. This is my fault. My network and my team's network is obviously responsible for this. Let me give you another piece of the puzzle. Our SE team?? THEY ARE GOD DAMNED MORONS. If you read through more these entries you will see that I am not exagerating. So I spent my afternoon fixing this problem. It is definitely fixed now connectivity is running much better after the server rebuild and things are running much more smoothly as far as those servers are concerned. Since this was so crucial it fell on my frail little shoulders to fix it.

Would you like to know what my magic fix was?? Nothing, I went out to lunch, I smoke a few cigarettes and I watched a movie. I am the david fucking copperfield of network engineering. I managed to take "Dog and Pony Show" and "Smoke and Mirrors" to all new heights. You're welcome

Oh and my executive management's response?? "Thank you for finally getting around to fixing this"

..............if you look real close you will see that they rebuilt the server this morning....SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH it's a secret

It comes down to this
Today I make a severe career limiting decision. It will either go wonderfully or sink me very nicely

The Devil will burst from my lungs!
Yeah so I have an INCREDIBLY bad case of heartburn today. I was fine till right about the time i went to walk into the office. I ran home to grab some pepcid (couldnt hit the gas staion because i forgot my wallet) it has helped a little but damn, I dont know what caused this and it sucks. Who knows, maybe I am having that elusive heartattack I keep hearing so much about =P

I am now a true engineer
Well I have transcended to my true form as an engineer. I overheard the support folks here at my client site say that the internet seemed to be down. The first thing that popped in my mind? "Oh, time for a smoke break" BAM RIGHT OUT THE DOOR. I have now reached my top level form as an engineer
