I saw the sign and it opened up my mind.

I’m not actually groovin’ to Ace of Base right now, but I do have “The Sign” in my head now because I just ran into a sign that I should go to bed. I finally picked up the pace on writing that paper of enormous proportions but it’s late and I am starting to feel ill. You know when the chills and hunger set in? I have seriously gotten old. I used to not get this feeling till 5 AM!

So I was saying that there was a sign. I tried to use the university’s web catalogue to find out if a potentially useful book was available. Well, guess what? The whole freakin’ university library catalogue is unavailable right now! You mean no one else is starting the weekend with some frantic research at 2:45 AM? Give me a freakin’ break, dudes. That’s a crock of poo. I know there are undergrads who are crapping themselves over some stupid assignment due on Monday.

The best part of the sign? My total and utter confusion and burst of incredulity when I read the little default message that said that the catalogue was down “between Saturday 1:30 am to 3:30 am for maintenance.”

What do you mean? It’s FRIDAY not SATURDAY. God, how stupid is my institution with their flaky library catalogue that shuts down at the wrong freakin’ time! Gah! I hate everything!

Obviously, the institution isn’t that flaky. I’m the flake. The kind of flake who should be institutionalized!

As if the growling stomach weren’t enough of a sign to step away from the computer! Adrienne, stop working on a complex theoretical essay full of unfamiliar case law analysis when you forget cannot even absorb the simple concept of days changing over at midnight.

    I believe that they scheduled this time because it is the most unlikely time that anyone would be accessing the resource! So, count yourself lucky! 😀
