After her sister is kidnapped, a beautiful young woman must infiltrate a maximum security, all-women prison in the Philippines in order to save her sibling and other female guinea pigs from horrifying genetic experimentation carried out by a mad doctor.

Why didn't I think of this?

There are times when I find Microsoft to be annoying.

Not exactly news, right? I develop software, I run up against the Tao of Microsoft all the time, and it's frustrating. Microsoft does enterprise applications. I do mostly embedded systems, and the two do NOT sit well together. Forcing things like UML workflow on my design don't make my job easier, thankyouverymuch.

But that's all reasonable. I get that, I expect it. It's like trimming the fat off of the steak, or having to pay the girl for sex.

But the latest annoyance?

The NetMeeting ads on Yahoo! mail.

The Net Meeting ad is a click-through ad that launches a new browser window that takes you to Microsoft NetMeeting (or LiveMeeting nowadays) land. And it runs on the primary page in a transparent box that just happens to cover the inbox link.
So I am either forced to wait until the little ad animation runs its course, or most often When I click the link to check my mail, I'm treated to a lovely discourse on LiveMeeting.

It's not much, but it's annoying. It is the only ad that behaves like that that I've seen, and it happens often enough that it's beginning to piss me off.

I just got a notification that my Livejournal account will be expiring.

My permanent account.


Further checking pinpointed that it was only the extended userpics feature that woukld be expiring. So soon I will be going from the 100-picture limit to the limit of 100 pictures.

They apologized for the weirdness. It's an automated system. I am humored.

Oh, yeah...

Mom's coming down Friday for Christmas.

I love my mom dearly.

But I live in something of a shithole. And I don't have a girlfriend. And I'm overweight. And every single one of those things will become a lecture at some point over the weekend.

Anybody up for some serious drinking early next week?
