krazy koati

I don't wanna be no clock watcher

When I went to the maintenance office and asked about getting someone to look at my bedroom's air conditioner -- which is most certainly not conditioning the air; I question strongly whether it's even shampooing it -- and they told me they'd have someone here after 2:00, I suppose I just took it for granted that they meant 2:00 today. I don't mean to sulk; it gave me the chance to catch closer to being up on my e-mail, and I cleaned up stuff I should have, and I did some of assembly on those space toys I bought yesterday. The Shuttle, Lunar Module, and Saturn V actually require screws in certain places; Mir needs simpler work. And Turner Classic Movies showed The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm.

I saw in the news some company is selling a version of The Shawshank Redemption for mobile phones that can accept memory cards. This solves a problem I never imagined to exist. I wonder if they sell a letterboxed format. I note also I made a joke about this with kurtmrufa several years ago, reinforcing that any sufficiently satirical statement will become reality.

You know, I forgot in which episode it was that Wesley Crusher got held captive by Decepticon tough guy Shockwave. Also Captain Picard should investigate who's been sneaking in and moving the front stations abnormally close together.
