I’m sitting here in the office of the company I’m freelancing for mucking about on my laptop because I have a 7PM service call and the amount of time until then is short enough that if I drove home I’d have to turn right around and leave again. So, I’m killing some time in the interest of a shorter drive. JethricOne is probably going to be highly annoyed with me because Thursday nights is his D&D campaign I joined up with and it normally starts at 8PM and I’m going to be late. This is the second time since I started playing that my part time work has gotten in the way of my being able to play (last time he canceled the evening’s session) so I’m sure it’s got to be annoying by now, but I’m currently the only tech available to do the job. That and I do need the money to help make up for what unemployment doesn’t cover. The hours I do get are pretty minimal and will probably shrink a bit more next week when the full time tech comes back to the job.
J1 sent an email out saying the game is delayed until 9PM and with any luck I should be able to make it by then. It all depends on how messed up this next client’s PC happens to be. If it’s a 10 minute fix then making the 9PM start time should be a cinch, but if it takes more than an hour I’ll be in trouble as the drive home is 45 minutes plus an additional 25 minutes or so out to J1’s place. Yesh! This is why I waited so long before agreeing to play. It just seems like life gets in the way of trying to schedule anything to happen on a regular basis.
