Football Season is OVER! w00t!

Tuesday, February 5th, 2008

This is me caring who won the Super Bowl.

Seriously. It was a worthless east coast matchup and the only thing I really wanted to see was Brady removed from the game due to being a pretty boy, or the Patriots getting crushed after a loss-less season. No gigantic loss, but at least the Giants took em’ down a peg to demoralize them. Want the funny? Hellz yes, you do!

The party at the Horowitz pad went over very well, as it has for the last 2 before. Always a good time over at that place with the huge amount of food and booze. I made Travis & Erin do shots of Crown. pwn3d.

So it’s Tuesday. I’m sitting on hold with VMware. I’ve been sitting here for ~20 minutes so far. Small-to-Medium Business sales kick ass by their measures, obviously. I rate their customer service so far at about a 3.2 on a scale of 10. Please make me wait longer. It’s like their Palo Alto, California office was wiped off the face of the planet and only the voice-answering-system was left to function, just so that it can tell me to continue to hold every 2.5 minutes.

Not only is it Tuesday, but it’s SUPER Tuesday + FAT Tuesday.  So go out and vote, but don’t forget to wear your beads at the same time.  I was able to cast my ballot this morning before work for Mr. Obama, along with another 10-12 judges I could really care less about.  That committeeman Gillis should be a shoe-in!  That’s funny, you see, as he was the only possibility on my ballot for that office.  Congrats!

Update: I just gave up after 45 minutes on hold with VMware and hit # to leave a message. Will I hear back? Doubtful. My last email message submitted via the site last week was disregarded, obviously. *SIGH*

Second Update:  Ron from VMware just called back.  He gave me a bunch of pricing outlines, but it was quite confusing and he gave no recommendations and didn’t push anything in making a purchasing decision right away.  That company really needs some Sales & Customer Service help over there… sheesh.

Anyway… back to it.   Wish me luck?
