Well, today was a bad day for the ‘net. I woke up this AM and my mail server was down and had apparently been down since about 2AM. I opened a ticket and they finally had things back up and running at about 2PM. 12 hours of down time is hard when it comes to email anymore. Isn’t that pathetic?? The excuse my hosting company gave me was “emergency maintenance” on the server housing mail.pepperguy.com. Yeah…I know all about “emergency maintenance.” 🙂

So…then I get home tonight, and wouldn’t you know it, our cable is out…which means my Internet access is out. Through the wonders of NAT, the LAN and the HOSTS file…I’m able to post tonight…seing as how my server is on my network here at home. Unfortunately, my ties to the rest of the world are severed.

TV cable is dead too, so I popped in The Naked Gun and have it on in the background. SO damn funny! I don’t know how many times I’ve seen it, but it makes me laugh every time. I actually remember the very first time I saw this movie. I was a freshman at Miami and I went to see it with Rich Urbanski at the theater in Oxford. It was one of those crowds that laughed as one and applauded when the movie was over. It was a very cool experience. I went back and saw it again the next night and laughed even harder.

On the bright side of the day though, I had my evaluation at work. Things went very well! I do really enjoy what I do and I think I’m pretty good at it. It’s always nice to know that the company feels the same way. Plus, I got some good suggestions on how I can be even more efficient and be of more value to the company. “Is it good for the company?” LOL… really though, it was a good evaluation.

You know the best thing about this movie?? Nordberg.

“I’m boiling a roast.”

Frank Drebin is feeding Jane some of the meat and she starts to seductively suck his finger, to which he responds, “I’ve got 9 more.”

“It’s the same old story, boy finds girl, boy looses girl, girl finds boy, boy forgets girl, boy remembers girl…girl dies in a tragic blimp accident over the Orange Bowl on New Years Day.” “Goodyear?” “No….the worst!”

GOD, there are so many great lines in this film. And just one after the other too. My favorite comes near the end though:

“It’s a topsy-turvy world Jane, and maybe the problems of two people don’t amount to a hill of beans; but this is OUR hill…and these are OUR BEANS!”

Our beans indeed!
