Tomorrowland [May. 22nd, 2015|10:04 pm]
Tales of a Shoggoth Wrangler
[Current Mood |down]

Saw 'Tomorrowland'. Am not sure what I think of it. I think if past me had seen it, it would have made a better impact. Current me is a little too cynical and to be honest, negative, to take the message to heart. I don't know why it's bothering me, but I ended up coming out of the movie rather sad. Nymaz and Amythest both liked it a lot.

I came home, I'm camping out and trying to not feel down. Going to try to have a quiet night. Distract myself, and hopefully I won't feel so blah when I head to bed. At least it's only Friday, I have days to be quiet and calm and think happier thoughts. Catch you all later.

Friday day of offness. [May. 22nd, 2015|02:17 pm]
Tales of a Shoggoth Wrangler
[Current Mood |ok]
[Current Music |Voodoo Lagoon]

Had a rough night of sleeping. Had bad dreams about two seperate friends pushing me away. I was able to wake up and shrug it off, but eww, bad subconsciousness. Called agnate sibling and made meet up plans. It went smoothly, and kind of pleasantly. I handed over the TV, a stand, and the hook up stuff. I also had a piece of art that a friend of his had done, and at one time he wanted to make sure he got back. Seems he changed his mind, oh well. I'll take some pics of it and share it around, maybe someone I know will like it. (Definitely won't fit in with the Innsmouth motif here). We parted ways, I picked up a pizza, got caught in a major deluge, and came home.

I ate the pizza, started up another stupid movie, and I've done some chores. Updating VMs and letting stuff update on Cthylla. Definitely want to get a new monitor, the old 17" is ok...but I crave the shiny *wink* I'm not planning getting any new shiny for a while. Again, it depends on if I actually game or not. For now though, I'm glad to have the new system here.

Nothing much else, going to hop in the shower when the movie is done, then I'll futz around for a while until movie time tonight. Tomorrow is party time, and Sunday is more hermiting. Should be a good weekend. Hope you all are doing good, and I'll ramble more later.

[Current Mood |ok]

Well, the work day is over. Came home by way of the store and gas station. Unloaded the car, made dinner. Finally found the product key for Cthylla's Windows 8.1 install, I hate MS product keys. Watched a really horrible D grade horror flick while eating dinner, tinkered with the new game box some. Finally got the kitchen back to normal. Still have to run a load of dishes and generally pick up. Tomorrow will probably be more chores and relaxing. Going to see 'Tomorrowland' with Nymaz and Amythest tomorrow evening.

Speaking of tomorrow, I talked to my agnate sibling and I'm delivering the TV he gave Mom, along with the TV stand she had. Oh yeah, and a piece of art that a friend of his did years ago. Not a big deal, save it's dealing with him...so I'm a touch anxious. But this definitely a case of him needing something from me, so that's a plus. And I'm going to make it a 'meet, greet, hand over stuff, leave' kind of meetup, so the odds of having to cope with his verbage and opinions are slim. Definitely no 'going for a beer' or such things.

In happier news, I did go ahead and buy 'Worms: Armageddon'. Played one game, and got my ass cheerfully handed to me. I remember why I liked this game, it makes me laugh. I need more silly in my life. But don't we all ? I have a shopping list of other games I want to try, but I'm going to wait before I drop anymore money on games. Still have to see if I'll actually play more than once a month.

That's about it for tonight. Going to stay up a while longer, futz around as usual and hopefully get some good sleep. And tomorrow will be a good day. My tentacles command it to be so. *grin* Night all.

Pseudo-Friday [May. 21st, 2015|10:20 am]
Tales of a Shoggoth Wrangler
[Current Mood |ok]

Well it's Pseudo-Friday. Admin meeting was ok, got tasked with writing documentation about connecting to our new VPN service. Wee, fun. Actually it's a good thing for me to do, as I have the VM horde at home to show all kinds of OS versions. Especially Windows, as now I have access to XP, 7, and 8.1. Only OS I don't have immediate access to is Mac, and that's what boss #2 uses, so I can pass that buck on. Or, bug a friend who's of the Cult of Jobs.

Slept for crap, couldn't get to sleep, and then when I did it was broken...including waking up when the power flipped off for a minute. Surprised I got up with the alarms. More weird dreams, but nothing memorable or bad. Something made me think 'I've got to stop reading weird horror before bed' then I remembered I was reading Greek history last night. So *shrug* Oh well, my brain is weird.

Cthylla the gaming rig is setup and updated. Even got Steam and 'Left4Dead' setup, and it plays pretty nice (for all of the 2 min I ran around shooting random things). It's a nice system, will probably be tinkering with it all weekend. I wish it wasn't Windows 8.1, but I'm figuring out work arounds on it fairly easily. Yay new toys.

Not much else. Tonight I have to go by the store, and get gas. Then I really should work on some of the pending chores, declutter and finally put up all the dishes. Before I start playing games with killer zombies. Or worms. Probably worms. *grin* Plus there are movies to watch, and linux stuff to tweak as well. Glad I have a long weekend. Ok, I'll catch you all later, hopefully I'll be on said long weekend by then.

The new gamer system has arrived. Ran home on lunch, picked it up from the office and dropped it off at Château Innsmouth. Probably will skip doing chores tonight to get the basic setup done, and start the Windows updates. Yay for shiny new Cthylla. Yes, I'm a geek.

Work is still quiet, *knocks on shoggoths* Looking forward to home time tonight and the weekend of length. Also have lots of books to read, yay books. Now to just get the time to do all the things, including sleep. *crosses tentacles*

Weird dreams are made of these... [May. 20th, 2015|11:17 am]
Tales of a Shoggoth Wrangler
[Current Location |The Shoggoth Pit]
[Current Mood |tired]

Had a night of random dreams. In one, a character from 'The Laundry' series ordered me to find a spy and 'terminate with any and all methods available', but I got stuck in the entrance to the HQ by a random security scan. Had some other vivid book related dream that I can't now remember, and finally right before the alarms started, I dreamed about some cute, random female. So yeah, really didn't want to get out of bed.

Got up, got moving, got to work on time. Speaking of work, I ended up taking this Friday off as comp time. Probably won't do anything majorly productive though, right now all I really want is to veg. Speaking of downtime, I went ahead and bought a gaming rig, it should be at Château Innsmouth today or tomorrow. I went and got a decent setup, even though I don't plan on playing the latest games. If I end up not using it for gaming, it could make a nifty linux box. But I think I'll enjoy firing up Worms or Left4Dead to vent stress. Windows 8.1 is installed, probably will have to spend some days trying to learn that foo. But, yay new computer.

Otherwise, I need to go to the store today or tomorrow, general stuff getting. Also need to need to put stuff back in the kitchen shelves after the exterminator's visit. Otherwise tonight will be a quiet night, no Amythest dinner due to scheduling foo. Tomorrow I have to be up early for meeting crap. But tomorrow is also my Friday, so it balances out.

That's about it for right now. Now to get through the next 15 or so work hours and it will be 3 day weekend time. Yay. Catch you all later.

Not Monday at least [May. 19th, 2015|10:49 am]
Tales of a Shoggoth Wrangler
[Current Mood |blah]

Well, it's no longer Monday. Am tired, had restless sleep, but I got up on time. I'm kind of dragging, but I'm moving and I didn't even seriously think about calling in, so that's a plus.

The Mom foo from last night is set aside for right now, nothing is immediate, mostly it was just statements of accounts stating that said accounts were closed. One bill, and stuff on grief from the chaplain. I'll go through it later, file what gets filed, and deal with the rest. No rush, no stress. At least that's the theory.

Also looks like I'll be working on Memorial Day. I'll get another day off as comp time, and since I have a number of things I kind of need to do during the work week, that would be good. At the same time, 3 day weekend would be good. I dunno, we'll see how it works out.

Ok, that's about it for right now. I'm okish. Be better after work, but that's normal. Laters everyone.

Unexpected mood divot [May. 18th, 2015|08:08 pm]
Tales of a Shoggoth Wrangler

Well, got the mail. Got a bunch of stuff about Mom-foo. Bills, statements of account, stuff from the chaplain who visited with us. I feel a little angry at the universe, maybe quite a bit angry ? *sigh* Oh well, it's not unexpected foo, and I've got ways to cope. Bad horror movies are one of them, so I have one on. I'm also tinkering with computer foo. I need to make some dinner and veg and hopefully tomorrow will not be as moody.

For those who worry, I'm ok. For low values of ok. There really isn't anything people can do, no fixes or making things better right now. Like I said I have my coping skills and coping items, and this is just an unexpected divot that threw me off. Take care people, and I'll talk more tomorrow.

Oh lord, it's a Monday [May. 18th, 2015|11:17 am]
Tales of a Shoggoth Wrangler
[Current Mood |blah]

Not a good Monday. Weekend wasn't terribly restful or tentacle recharging. Slept ok last night, but boy I didn't want to move this morning. Got up, got to work late, now dealing with a horde of tickets.

I'm really lacking in tentacles today. The urge to call in sick was pretty damn strong last night and this morning. But I didn't. I should get a cookie or something. Oh wait, I have a package from Arkham Bazaar at the mail box. That's like a pretty darn good cookie. With tentacles.

Not much else. Been reading a lot of history this weekend, given the goofy mood I was in, end of the world and/or horror seemed to be a less than great idea. So, instead I read a book on the Social War from Roman history, and then a book on the Athenian invasion of Sicily. Both are by Philip Matyszak, who is one of my favorite historians. He adds a nice touch of humor to subjects that you wouldn't think would be funny.

Ok, going to call this a post. Catch you all later, when hopefully I'm not feeling so blue.

Fury Road [May. 17th, 2015|01:23 am]
Tales of a Shoggoth Wrangler
[Current Mood |meh]

Well, movie time was had. Didn't work out according to plan, I was a dork when I bought the tickets and ended up buying them for Thursday not Saturday. Luckily there was a later showing that worked out, but boy did I feel blah. Saw "Mad Max: Fury Road" and ... I have to say it, but...what. the. fhtagn? It's like they just strung along a series of impossible car scenes and fights, mixed with mutants and insanity. There were some epic scenes, but I mostly spent the movie feeling boggled or overwhelmed. Though, if I ever do run a motor vehicle gang, I'm setting up a truck with amps and a crazed guitarist playing a double neck bass/ electric guitar. Aka, what happens to Rammstein after the Apocalypse.

Got home a little while ago, changed into pj pants and am watching an old Amicus (Hammer horror style with less budget) flick. Something calming. Not a single car crash to be had. Oops, but a horse riding failure...I guess that's the same ? Will go to bed shortly I guess. Then tomorrow is laundry and hangout time.

Hoping tomorrow will be less anxiety of a day. Also hoping I can get through the work week with little fuss or muss. Oh, I didn't post it here. But the agnate sibling called to see how things were going. Which as usual, ramped the anxiety up to about 37. I don't trust him, even when he's given me no current reason to worry. 20+ years of distrust and my ability to hold a grudge til it dies, and then stuff it and mount it on the wall, means there won't be any magically reconciliation between us. *shrug* Oh well, family ties aren't very strong in me. And since Mom is gone, I don't really see a point in trying to correct this. *sigh*

Well this went places I didn't plan on going. Probably really should just call it a night and sack out. Ramble more tomorrow probably. Ciao.

Saturday of the quiet [May. 16th, 2015|01:30 pm]
Tales of a Shoggoth Wrangler
[Current Mood |quiet]

Friday night turned to Saturday. I slept mostly ok, some overly active dreams as usual. Got up before I planned, did dishes, went to the store to get stuff, came home after getting a burger from Wendy's. This last bit was a mistake, as my stomach is letting me know it is unthrilled in this deviation from my usual burger choices.

Done some other chores, watching movies and fidding around online. Besides an upset stomach and a twitchy internet connection, I'm ok. Looking forward to seeing the new Mad Max flick tonight. Or as I've been calling it, 'Faster and Furiouser'. I'm all for a good post Apocalypse flick. And friend time.

So the rest of today shall be not much of anything til movie time. Well, I'll finish up the basic chores I still have to do. Not that I have many. It's a quiet day. I like nice quiet days. Catch you all later.

[Current Mood |relaxed]
[Current Music |Manhattan Baby]

Ok, survived Friday at the 'pit. Someone flipped the 'lets get crazy' switch, and I got to try to keep about 3 different big changes straight at the same time. Got everything done and complimented on by Boss #2. Which I earned as he threw one of the 3 big changes at me without asking 'hey are you busy ?' On the plus side, made one of our big customers happy, and got permission to unleash all the furies of an abuse admin on a customer I don't like. I'm normally not a hardass, if you deal with the issues as I request, I pretty much leave you be. But, it's nice to get to let loose on someone who's been a thorn in my side for months. So that should be fun.

Uxía's reinstall seems to have gone well. The onboard wifi is working fine, no crashes. I'm resyncing the Dropbox data, and will the copy missing stuff from the backup drive. No rush though, I'm not on call so I don't have to take it with me this weekend.

After work I headed home, changed into comfy clothes and then went down to celebrate a graduation. Socialness was had, but since I knew most everyone it wasn't too bad. And I could even deal with multi conversation crosstalk without too much stress. Came home, had to take a major detour due to a highway closure. Finally got home, made a late night snack and started watching yet another eurohorror flick. I've gotten kind of hooked on them, especially Bava and Fulci. I've always been a fan, but the last few months it's ramped up. Yay stylized horror, with bad dubbing, crazy titles and weird soundtracks.

Plan for the rest of the night, watch my flick, update stuff, and generally just chill. Go to bed when I feel like it, and then spend tomorrow puttering around the house until it's time for Mad Max IV with the musketeers. Should be a good time. So hope you all have good nights, and I'll talk to you tomorrow.

[Current Music |none]

Friday of the not so fun. Weird, overly active dreams, slow drive into work due to the rain, work annoyances. Not the way to start the best day of the week.

Reinstalled Uxía, still using Linux Mint 17.1, but I'm hoping I fixed the glitch causing it to freak out with the usb wifi plugged in. The onboard wifi seems to be working fine after the reinstall, so lets hope it stays that way. I'm also thinking of using LXDE instead of Mate, and changing up how things work, what apps I use for specific things...Why? Why not. I have no problem with my current setup, but I like messing around too. So we'll see. Right now I'm still updating and installing my usual cast of characters.

Allergies are bugging me, drainage is making my throat tender, and I'm kind of grumpy. Not a good combo. Oh well. Since I got paid, I decided to indulge in retail therapy for real, and bough the two sequels to Brian Keene's 'Earthworm Gods'. I've gotten to be a big Keene fan, he's a nice guy, who writes some fun, gory, stuff. Nice nods to Lovecraft, but his own voice. Definite worth a read.

So yeah, it's Friday, I have new books to read, I have a busy weekend planned, and the work day is over 1/4 done. Makes up for the annoying morning. Lets hope today runs by quick, and tonight is calm. Ciao hominds.

It got better... [May. 14th, 2015|02:44 pm]
Tales of a Shoggoth Wrangler

Well, things got better. I fixed a weird firewall issue that's been apparantly a 'known issue' to everyone but the guy who fixes the firewalls. Once I remembered what the heck they were talking about, I did my usual troubleshooting. I looked confused, I got annoyed, I wondered why I'd done it this way, changed a thing here and there to no effect. Then, I finally though to enable debug mode and watch what it freaked out about. Which answered the question of why backups didn't work...cause the firewall said so. Created a stupidly open rule, backups work. Create a less stupid rule, backups still work. Call it a win. Start wondering yet again if I'd just be happier herding goats somewhere...have to be less stressed at least.

Got more good news, a kickstarter I'd thrown money at funded. Yay for Innsmouth fripperies for home. Got caught up on tickets, including the other firewall issue (the other guy is out the rest of the week, so back burner time). Then I decided I deserved a tasty lunch, so went and got chicken. Came back, read a while ('Earthworm Gods' by Brian Keene) and got back to work.

So yeah, in a better mood. Leave work in a few hours, then deal with the insanity of grocery shopping. Then home to decompress before one last work morning. I can do it.

This isn't the day I requested [May. 14th, 2015|11:15 am]
Tales of a Shoggoth Wrangler
[Current Mood |blah]

Not a good Thursday. Woke up out of some really unpleasant nightmares. Dragged myself through the shower and into clothes and off to work. Morning meeting which had very little to do with me. Now at the desk, trying to figure out why 3 different firewalls are acting crazy... actually more like 5, since there are two sets of point to point vpns.

In a pretty horrible mood. The dreams involved the evil version of friends, so I woke up feeling pretty messed up. Luckily I'm a more sane person, and I know people don't randomly start hating me...saving said friends from weird calls in the early hours. There's still the hanging on part though, the emotional feedback that doesn't just go away. *sigh* Stupid brainmeants. If I know logically something won't happen, and I know emotionally that something couldn't happen, why the hell won't you let it the feck go? Oh yeah, I got in the 'brains with quirks' line.

So yeah, I'm not doing so hot today. I'm down, I'm tired, and I really, REALLY don't want to be at work today. The temptation to call in today with ennui was strong, especially last night after feeling crazy stressed from work. But I also know that if I give into temptation, I'll keep giving in...and I need to save said PTO. At least my plans for the weekend aren't quite as ... stressing as they were. Friday night is a friends' graduation shindig, which I'll probably not stay too late at. Then home, and vegging til dinner time on Saturday, when I'll get to see the new 'Mad Max' flick with Nymaz and Amythest. Sunday gets back to normal, with laundry and TV and hanging out with Amythest. That hasn't happened since well... yeah, then. So I'd like that to be back to normal. So while I'll be social, I'll have a fairly large block of me time Friday late til Saturday evening. In which I'll probably stick to doing quiet things, and hopefully get some of my cope back.

That's about it. Still too many hours to go in the work day. At least once it's over, I can go home...after going to the store. Blah, don't wanna...but I need water and snacks and stuff. *sigh* Oh well, at least I still get to leave early. Yay early. Laters hominds.

Anyone seen my motivation ? [May. 13th, 2015|11:33 am]
Tales of a Shoggoth Wrangler

Well, it's Wednesday. I'm kind of dragging, another restless night, though better dreams. Definitely didn't want to get out of bed. But I did. Got to work mostly on time. Not really my best, allergies are bugging me I guess. *sniffle*

No real focus today. I have stuff I need to do, but not really all that motivated. I guess I'll dig up some motivation out of the box of spares and get the cables I need to run, run. At least I get to have dinner with my best buddy tonight.

Not much else to say. Mood is kind of off kilter. Nothing bad, just... off. Not sure what the fix or the cause is. Well besides a general desire to not be at work. Blah. Oh well, maybe I'll find my missing motivation in the next little while. Ok, catch you all later.

Tales of a Shoggoth Wrangler
[Current Mood |ok]

Had a decent evening, went to bed kind of early and had a very restless night's sleep. Especially in the last couple of hours, couldn't stay asleep, couldn't get comfy, couldn't convince myself to get out of bed. Unpleasant mix there. Got up, got showered, got to work mostly on time. Work is kind of nuts, with a fairly large (and fairly obnoxious) client going bonkers. Ahh life in the shoggoth wrangling business.

Otherwise, I'm ok. I have a pack of things I need to do either on lunch or after work. Nothing major, just picking up happy pills, mailing stuff and a run by my bank. Then another hopefully quiet night at home, hopefully with better sleep.

That's about it for right now. Better than yesterday, so far. I'll catch you all later. *waves tentacles*

Braindump about brainmeats [May. 11th, 2015|05:54 pm]
Tales of a Shoggoth Wrangler
[Current Mood |anxious, but fading]

Well, it's after 5pm and I'm not doing so great. Anxiety spiked up nicely, partially due to work, partially due to me daydreaming about items I'd like to acquire. Yeah, some days daydreaming about stuff I want, but don't need can cause me unrest. Blah. I also have a PointToPoint VPN that needs some troubleshooting, which always makes me feel crazy and clueless, and trying to convince myself that having a rather social upcoming weekend won't be a bad thing. Mix them all up, and I'm wound up. Blah. So many things to decide on, so little time. Which actually isn't true, other than one Kickstarter than I wish to throw money at, and ends on Sunday, I have no real timeline. To the best of my knowledge, all of Mom's bills are paid. I have to finish the letter to the uterine sibling and mail it, but it's mostly written (same verbage I sent to agnate sibling, trying to treat them equal in all things...just call me Switzerland).

One stressor that won't go away soon is the trip. I haven't traveled outside of Texas (well save for camping in Oklahoma) since 2001. I've never coped with the security theater that is flying these days. What do I pack, what do I need, what will cause me the least grief. Oh yeah, and how best to pack two deceased parents...that's one that pops up with a feeling of 'I'm in a Monty Python skit'. I know I can answer a lot of this with the power of Google, and with asking my travel companions how they handle things. But I'm still stressed in general, I don't deal with crowds well, I don't like being away from home...luckily I have 6 months to work on both of those.

Emotional foo is mostly ok, grieving is going along in it's weird scatter shot kind of way. I know logically that returning to a 'normal' schedule and life is the best thing, but I really did enjoy my weekend of nothingness. When the most stressful thing was feeling icky from dust, and did my online takeaway order work? Even Mother's Day wasn't so bad, the sappy/caring posts that friends made about their moms, I thought about yay my friends having good moms, and all the nifty moms I knew...and it didn't make things feel so bad. *sigh* I'll be ok, I'm coping well enough I think. We'll see how things keep going.

Speaking of anxiety, my scripts for happy pills have been renewed, even the Xanax. Doctor's office had to call me to get the right number for the pharmacy on that one (I technically had 0 refills, but the pshrink said getting that refilled wouldn't be a problem). But all is well. I'll probably go and get them either tonight or tomorrow, depending on tentacles. I really kind of just want to go home. Get the mail, make something quick for dinner and tune out for the night. I have a pending episode of 'Salem' to watch, new ebooks to read, and a comfier bed since I turned the mattress. Now to just make it til 6:30 (leaving early due to eating lunch while working).

Ok, in the time it took to write this, anxiety levels have dropped. Yay for modern pharma, and the ability to ramble at the internet. I'll leave soon, and I'm not on call, so no worries tonight. I will be ok, everything will be ok. *deep breath* Thanks for listening. Hopefully my next post is full of joy and verve. Or at least tentacles.

[Current Mood |ok]

Well survived Sunday. Went to bed more or less the usual time, finally settled on what I wanted to read, then went to sleep about an hour later. Had weird dreams. Not sure if I'd call the stress dreams or just my subconscious decided I needed a scandish and defrag. Woke up late, didn't want to move. Got ready, got moving, took out the trash. Work was a pile of tickets, but that was no surprise. Some crazy customer foo too. Gotta love Mondays.

Got stuff I need to do outside of work. Have to call one of Mom's insurance companies again, instead of sending me the claim paperwork, they sent me the 'change the beneficiary' paperwork. Umm, no, not what I needed. I also have to send out the letter to the uterine sibling, which means I need to finish writing it. Plus the usual odds and ends during the week to do.

My brainmeats are ok, a little stressed over little things. Hope the day goes by quick, and tonight is calm and quiet. *crosses tentacles* That's about it. I'll call this a post and get one with the rest of the day. Ciao.

More ramblings [May. 10th, 2015|07:11 pm]
Tales of a Shoggoth Wrangler

Survived the day. Actually didn't hide in books like I thought I would, watched assorted movies and did some low end geeky stuff. Haven't let the holiday get me too down. There were spots though, but nothing overwhelming. Will freely admit to being glad I stayed at home, and didn't go out. Between the day and the storms that have been rolling though, I probably would have been poor company.

My living room is mostly back in order. There is a pile of old electronics I need to get rid of, and a last few items of Mom's that I need to find a home for, or just get rid of. *sigh* Only big thing is my agnate sibling's TV, the one he gave to Mom. I'm holding on to it til he comes back sometime this month. Takes up space, but it's not a big deal.

That's about it. It's been a good, quiet weekend. Next weekend will probably be more social, with the return of Sunday laundry and TV at Amythest's, and going to a small shindig to celebrate a graduation on Friday. Part of that whole cope plan, getting life back to 'normal'. As much as I like my alone time, it's probably a bad idea to make these kind of weekends a regular occurance. I do need my alone time...and friend time, and out side in the real world (ick) time.

Ok, going to wind this up before I start repeating myself. Hope all the Moms out there got treated well, and that those of us that the holiday hits hard treated ourselves well. Ciao.
