A day in the life of the unemployed @ 01:52 am

Current Mood: moody moody
Current Music: tinnitus

Got up, read mail, looked at craigslist and a couple of other sites for jobs. (No interesting ones, unsurprisingly.) Had lunch with lccha, bitched about things. Went to Dana Street, where I played with my brand-spanking new wireless card and found that sometimes "90 minutes of battery life" means "battery is completely drained". That was OK, though; I spent an hour or two seeing if the blurriness of watercolors can compensate for my lack of ability. I helped some random with getting her powerbook working with the 802.11 on the way out; it's comforting that despite not having used macs for about five years I can still (mostly) make them do what I want.

I went home, and got kinda moody; I wanted to go out again, but I just did. I seem to get that a lot - wanting to do something, but not knowing what. I then managed to kill two or three hours attempting to choke out of TI's websites information on their chipset that the cheapo wireless cards all seem to have. Good grief, was that a fucking pain in the ass, a treasure hunt to spy the little tiny insignificant links that lead to only a modicum of data. (I think I may be onto something, but I'll have to beat at it more tomorrow.) Moodiness still laid around in my psyche, though, despite the threat of having gotten something useful done.

I then hit karaoke with the sfrivethead crowd. I saw crotchgoblin for the first time in... two, three years? jeez. Also got introduced to jen... who later mentioned she was icis_machine, whereupon lightbulbs fizzled into life above my head. People were up on stage and having a good time, and while I wanted to sing, I didn't feel up to performing - much less songs I'm not terribly familiar with. (Not being able to booze it up didn't help.)

Tomorrow, however, is the free day at the Exploratorium and I shall go cavort up in the city, and then stare at the ocean for a long while.

Good thing, but indicative of how slowly I catch on to things at times.
