Due to some random road closures I had a hard time finding my way out of there, but on the plus side I passed a dairy and got ice cream. Democracy-flavor. Then I arrived at work just in time to find everyone going out for a nice long lunch since the servers were all still down. Joined them, which was very pleasant, returned, found out one of my hard drives had gotten into an argument with its master file table when the power went down and they were no longer on speaking terms, and that was pretty much it for the day. (I really hope that chkdsk can resolve this problem, as I don't want to have to spend a whole day rebuilding the drive and then another day rebuilding my work.) Which is why I'm at home at 4:00 PM.
That said, it was gorgeous out, 65 degrees, partial clouds. Probably the last nice day of 2008. If there's going to be a day where I find myself aimlessly driving around back roads south of Boston, I couldn't ask for a better one.
If you're curious, yes, I did climb on board the Obandwagon. I won't deny that hope was part of my decision-making process; namely, I hope that on Inauguration Day he doesn't pull off a Scooby-Doo mask and reveal that he's actually Jimmy Carter. But that being said, I insist that you do not allow my actions or preferences to affect your vote. The political conformity on Livejournal is stultifying enough already without me adding to it.
