This one goes out to my homies in the 348 LATA. You all know who you are.

The new job has been totally awesome. New job + 7 accelerated credit hours has been totally kicking my ass though. Thank God the semester ends in a month or so. Then I'm just down to my lame movie watching class.

Today, as I was walking around $customer_redacted, a K-3ish school, I remembered when I was in school, and there were technicians with toolbags walking around doing things, going neat places in the school I was not allowed into, doing seemingly neat stuff. I always wanted to do that sort of thing. I always thought the phone guy (and later, the computer guy) were awesome. Now I realized I -AM- that guy. And I saw a few kids look at my gear with curiosity. If schools didn't get all freaky when you talk to the students if you aren't an employee or parent, I would loved to have shown the curious ones my tools and explain what they're for, but alas, these days they're totally afraid you're a bad person or whatever.

I just hope the kids who asked me who I was, and I replied "I'm the phone guy" (technically, I was there to dink with the internet T1 at the time, but the tools were mostly my phone tools, and people think if I say I'm there to monkey with the internet that I can help them fix their computer - if you say you're there to monkey with the phones, they don't ask that.), anyway, I hope that of the kids who asked me that, one of them said "damn, that's awesome. I want to do that when I grow up.".

Also: Mad props to the late dankaye for having parents that schedule your funeral for 6/6/6, because they knew you'd want it that way. I'm sure you're somewhere laughing your ass off about that. :)
