I am cutting up thin plastic sheeting to make a tetrahedral hairdryer-powered hot air balloon.

I feel better

I feel like it's all really complicated, but needlessly so.

well, I decided the original tetrahedron was too small, so I just winged it and made a 20' folded-over straight balloon with the painter's plastic.

took it into the driveway and inflated it with a hairdryer - before the seam split (damn!) it was quite majestic and gave the across-the-street neighbors one more reason to believe I'm crazy.

I'll do it again soon only I'll tape opposite sides to get the desired tetrahedral shape - and make a movie too

it's almost 3am and I'm too damn inspired to sleep...again. I wish I felt tired. tomorrow is going to be rough

dammit, I feel annoyed. I'm afraid that my only IV-suitable arm vein may have collapsed after being abused with gadolinium chelate contrast dye yesterday

I'm hoping it's just inflammation.

Maybe your new avatar will shift the karmic flow of the universe and bump you into another department? It's quite a powerful effect!

Hope hope hope.
How long would you have to be there before maybe getting another assignment?

^Wow.
I've worked in jobs I really hated, and it's pretty difficult to keep the fumes of it from invading the rest of your life. A year seems like a long time.

How's the job market there? Is it unlikely you could switch companies?
