It's Friday (PSA for those of you without calendars)

Yes, I am superstitious.  I am migrating a 116 GB database to a test environment and I am wearing my lucky socks, my lucky hair scrunchy....and the fucker still failed at the same point (1 hour and 42 minutes in for those of you writing a book about my life) 3 times.  I know some of you out there feel my pain.  Ahem.

 So after fixing the obvious issues on the fourth try I held my breath between minute 1 hr 40 and 1 hr 43 (not the whole time - do I look like Michael Phelps?  Oh wait, you haven't seen me so for all you know I do look like him.  But no, I don't and you'll just have to take my word on that.)

Whilst holding my breath I sang the themes from The Brady Kids Cartoon AND Josie and the Pussycats in my head without stopping and stared at my screen without blinking willing it to migrate past the fail.  And you know what?  That worked.

I shouldn't be giving out all these career secrets on the internet, you're all going to collect these bits of technical genius and flood the job market and I'm too smart for that.  So maybe I lied.  Maybe it was two completely different theme songs, or a lucky barrette in place of a scrunchy.  You don't know.  

So I'm sitting here hour 6 watching what I hope is the last of my Z tables load - I have been staring at loading bars all day and can see them when I close my eyes.  I HAVE to because when I look away they stop loading.  Attention whores that they are...this sums it up.

And what's Friday without another SQL joke?

Try to get these ear worms out of your head...I dare ya.  (and if you're Cindy how insulting is this theme song...that nondescript is she?  And I still SO want to be Melody when I grow up.)

In my mind you look like an older version of Buffy.  And ooooooooh Josie and the Pussycats plus the Brady's.

Fuck. Seriously? Hit the server a few times. That will help.....or at least you will feel better.

      My stepmom helped raise me. So she’s my stepmom. 
       

      I don’t think my mom will marry her boyfriend. At least I hope not. And it’s not because I dislike him. I’ve known him since I was like 7 years old. He’s an old family friend. But my mom is not the marrying type. She’s just too independent. It’s better that they not marry and always live separately. But if they did marry, I would just refer to him by name. I probably wouldn’t call him my mom’s husband though. And it wouldn’t bother me if my kids called him grandpa. Currently they call him by his first name.

      I also do the "my Mom and her husband" thing, because her husband is a scoundrel who doesn't deserve the dignity of a name. My aunts refer to him as "it."

      Oh! I didn't realize they'd actually moved. I assumed they were still going back and forth from the Duggar compound. How sad. I hope Mac's still in regular contact with whichever aunt she was closest to.

      Much of Kendra's uber strict uber trad Catholicism is exactly the same as the fundies we follow.

      Kendra definitely believes she holier than the pope. Her hubris about this knows no bounds.

      She absolutely adored Pope Benedict (Best. Pope. Evah.).

      She seriously dislikes Pope Francis.  As I mentioned above, several years ago she wrote Pope Francis (and encouraged her readers to do the same,) because she said he was doing something/ said something wrong.

      She wanted him to know it was wrong and to stop it. Because she disagreed with him. She posted the letter in her blog for her readers to use as a template.

       

       

      Just imagine being Catholic and thinking you are a better Catholic than the pope.
