Scared of the Peacock Revolution since 2006

I found this on Libra, dated at 2138 on 2010-12-23. I can't be bothered reading it, but I assume it was just whatever I was thinking at the time that I could type fast enough to record. Henjoy.
I'm bored and have decided to type things. Yogurt is currently occupied duplicating Mellee's hard drive to a partition on Mega Maid. Originally, Disk Utility said it would take 4/3 hours (was flickering between the two, so I assumed 3.5) which would have put the finish time around 2330. Probably a bit late for Sarah to be able to take it with her when she wants to go home.
Now (2122) it's up to verifying and only reporting 28 minutes estimated left. This means it may be done before she gets back from wherever she ended up going with Ivan (church, I think).
I'm supposed to be working, so that there's very little to do tomorrow other than test like crazy and maybe write some unit tests. Maybe. Instead, I have almost nothing open so that I don't do something that causes the head on Mega Maid to do anything other than write (or read as it's probably doing now) from the backup partition.
Skillet's currently playing. Under My Skin. Good song.
Blumpy and Sergey are looking cute and stuff sitting on top of Shiny. I should probably rename Shiny sometime, but can't really be bothered watching Space Balls again. Now Jars of Clay are playing because I wanted to listen to this CD (which I actually have a physical copy of).
17 minutes to go, 5 minutes after it said 28. Yay for overestimating time left (boo for underestimating it when that happens though)
You will never walk alone. In the shelter of each other, we will live. I like these lyrics.
Coke is tasty. Om nom nom nom.
Blumpy and Sergey could probably do with a wash sometime soon. Maybe I should get Mum to wash them once we get back from "holiday". I still don't understand why people take holidays. Just get a job you enjoy and then you don't have to worry about going away and all the stress that seems to be associated with them. And the large amount of time spent in transit as well.
Thinking about it, I'm not really getting that much of a holiday as such for all the time I'm taking off work. There's the four days that starts on Saturday that I get to spend with my family, including grandparents. Last time that happened I got burned out within a couple of days.
Autocomplete on this makes the way I spell things get turned into the correct things. I like it, most of the time. Getting Blumpy in is hard though (ha! Didn't try to change it to bumpy that time!).
After those four days, I'll be working again until the ninth. Then I'll be winging up to Auckland for the NZOI summer camp. I'm tutoring next year. It should be great fun and stuff :)
That finishes on the 17th. I've got one full day in Wellington before I'm off to Cutting Edge at Summer Wine (or New Wine Summer, whatever it's called now) for the weekend. Cutting Edge is also great fun.
Both Cutting Edge and the NZOI camp require me to get up insanely early each day (like, before 0600) just so I have enough time by myself each day to not get the burnout I would get otherwise.
