It’s Fuck It Friday, Bitches!!

And gawd it took long enough to get here. The weekend has started for my peeps in Makati and I’m sure they’re happy for it – their scheduling this week just repeatedly got blown to bits. The plan was to have that mini-feature testing done last Friday, but some jackass kept finding defects and extending the process*, and then the clusterfuck with the special version build for the special client…

But all that is behind us for the time being and we’ve got a half day today! Granted, most of it will be getting the rest of my to-do list back on track since that mini-feature just chucked all plans out the window. And things that have to be done by Monday/Tuesday are well in hand, but I’ll feel better getting at least one of those items knocked off the list today.

When I picked up my coffee, one of the baristas asked if I had any big weekend plans – just the Olympics and watching folks do ridiculous things. She said, “I really love curling!” with that tone of voice that said, “I did not expect to love curling!” We agreed that it’s very soothing – and there is something about the fact that they all look like normal people. I know there is lots of training and conditioning and whatnot that they do – but they all still look like folks I might run into at my bar. It’s also one of the few sports where you don’t have to start at the age of 6. There is something cool about an Olympic sport you can look at and go, “I could learn to do that and not kill myself.”

Well, time to go knock some shit off the to do list so I can enjoy my afternoon – you have a fantastic weekend!

* It’s me, I am the jackass.
