Oh, Rainbows…I like those, those are cool…

Dreams are like rainbows.  Only idiots chase them.

Yeah, maybe I try to do too much.

I really don’t want my blog to be nothing more than me bitching about how busy I am…but… I am really busy… so if you want anything at all, that’s probably all you’re gonna get for a little while…

I just spent the last 15 hours being a complete geek at MultiMayhem XI. I think the jury is still out on whether or not it was time well spent. I mean, the last MultiMayhem was a good time. It was the first time that Travesty & I really hung out, and it seemed to have a fun atmosphere to the whole day.

However, this event was marred from the get go. I arrived later than I would have liked, only to find that I hadn’t really missed much because some moron brought in a virus and the whole network was totally screwed. They had it mostly under control by the time I arrived, but nothing much was happening. This also seemed to require all of the attention of all of the staff. So nothing was getting done. There was absolutely no information about the tournaments. I was planning on participating in the Quake III tournament, but I found out hours later that it was cancelled.

All of this might not have been such a big deal if it were not for the fact that they were not even as organized as they were last time. They did not have game updates available for download on their network. Their “LAN Home Page” was nothing more than a copy of their website that didn’t even have any functionality. Their online seating chart where we choose seats for the event was not what was actually used in the room, so 91bravo was right by the door and had some glare from the sun, and later in the evening we were both irked by the fact that the door was propped open and it was windy…I just don’t understand how Travesty, Bravo, & I can run smaller events with more foresight and organization than these clowns who have the audacity to charge admission.

Hmm. That really wasn’t going to be the point of this post….I wonder if we can cover the rest without exceeding our bandwidth for the day…

Tomorrow, I mean, later today, I need to go spend some time with the family for Father’s Day. Then I need to do some hardcore work on my Final Project for my Marketing Class. <shudder> The week looks like this:

  • Monday – Final Exam
  • Tuesday – Final Project
  • Wednesday – Final Exam
  • Thursday – Final Exam
  • Friday – Stress induced catatonic state

Oh, for those of you who may be wondering… The Guest Room was mostly completed, mostly on time. My Sister-in-law & my niece & nephews are staying with us for a couple of weeks. So again, my time here may be limited.

At least I’m not bored…
