      I'm at WORK!

      I can't believe it, can you?

      I started at 11:30PM, CST - and I'll be here until about 9AM, CST - this is after a full day of work on Thursday.

      Doh! We deploy new code out to our website (yes, I work for a profitable dotcom, ahem) during the wee morning hours as to not upset our customers.

      But wait? What about the pee-on workers? Like me?

      I know I know, if we did upset the customers, we wouldn't be profitable, and I wouldn't be here writing this... well at least from work.

      Just trying to stay awake...

      Ryan.

      All the great paying jobs usually suck. It is great if you are trying to pay off bills, but if it kills you in 5 years, what was the point?

      I actually love my job, and it's not often that I have to work these hours, just on build days when my projects are going live (I'm a software project manager for the company).

      And come on Crankcase, I work for a dotcom, I have to have internet access, lol!

      Yea - I agree, a lot of people do. I'm usually only on here first thing in the morning, and then at lunch. But tonight, I really can't coherently put out any real work with only 2 hours of sleep. I'll be reworking everyting on Monday - so tonight, I'm taking it easy.
