Wow, I’m sorry I left. She was too tired anyways. First time that ever happened.
2001-07-17 09:23:51 – bastard
DEAR LORD!!! What have you people done to randal!!! I didn’t know keg stands were happening at his party too!!!
2001-07-17 15:30:31 – Laura
uh, did carolyn get back OK today? was she sick? I’m tired and feel like crap! yay for my birthday….
2001-07-17 15:35:49 – rand0m
yea, carolyn was in good shape this morning — she had a stomach ache, but was in a good mood =)

monday morning already?

**UPDATE** Meeting over @ Laser Quest at 9PM !!!! If you will not be able to make it there by 9:20pm, CALL ME — 964-4504 — that’s you, emily and laura!

it is 07/16, which means that I am 19 — happy birthday to me. Please send your money / gifts / whatever to me. Incredible that I’ve survived this long; I am surpised the unwashed masses haven’t torn me from limb to limb yet [grin]. Ahh yes, the beautiful beginning of another year of wonderful living. At least that’s the plan, heh …

Mom called on the phone and heard the ‘leave a message’ message I have on there that kind of sums up what’s going on. She completely tripped out about the dead truck; she’ll be calling this morning @ 7am [ungh]. I’ll then have the opportunity to tell them about my truck, uccs, and gateway … and with that, I’m off to 5 1/2 hours of sleep.

2001-07-16 02:13:53 – Laura
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! you wanna go do something tonight after i get done with dinner with my family? i think we have reason to celebrate :-) anyway, have a good one.
2001-07-16 02:18:33 – Laura (again)
I’ve decided that the people we know should get us drunk for our birthday…haha. yeah, for those of you who read this, get a hint! :-)
2001-07-16 02:47:15 – Unwashed Masses
Those of us without money would love to get you drunk, but we apologize for our inability. And you are on our rip apart list, but the manager has been out of town so we are way behind.
2001-07-16 07:26:12 – The Disco Nova
Laura, you should of taken him to the underground last night. Then he could of at least watched ME get drunk.
2001-07-16 07:53:16 – rand0m
thanks laura =) And disco, just thinking about seeing you getting drunk is something I never thought I’d see … heh … so laura, you saw james, right? is he still the galoot he was last time I saw him? 😉 have a good day everyone.
2001-07-16 09:49:22 – The Disco Nova
I actually seem to be running into laura alot recently.
2001-07-16 09:57:05 – Laura
yeah, james, i think you’re stalking me. stop! hehe. and randal, james is a little more normal now, which we can all be happy about (hehe),but he still drinks a lot. so, randal, are you up for chillin with me tonight (and maybe some other people)?
2001-07-16 09:59:31 – rand0m
yea, i’m for doing something tonight if there is something going on … also, disco, do you have aim? if so, <a href="rand0m@hpi.net" class=home>e-mail</a> it to me or post it here … woOoOo, what a day!
2001-07-16 10:48:40 – Laura
Well, what do you want to do? it’s your birthday. i think carolyn wants to chill and see you, and if anyone else is up for doing something, they’re welcome. i just don’t know what to do. so, think!
2001-07-16 12:34:33 – realbighead
roman orgy!
2001-07-16 13:07:22 – The Disco Nova
Nope, no AIM. Silly_gi_guy@yahoo.com is my home email adress, I check it like every 30 secs (love pop3) so It’s fairly real time. Maybe I’ll download AIM sometime. As for your birthday? Laser quest is open on mondays during the summer, so let me know if you wanna get your ass smoked. I’m out of practice and need some "easy" targets.
2001-07-16 14:04:48 – Siaokh
Avon… normal?! uhm, sure. Happy birthday man… are ya doing anything tonight for it? also… avon, why did you stop going to LQ? w00t -Tim (ramblings of an overworked individual)
2001-07-16 14:39:56 – The Disco Nova
Yea, what’s up with that Laura, you bitch. Don’t call me normal.
2001-07-16 14:42:22 – Laura ~*~
hey! tim! it’s my birthday too, damnit! LQ actually sounds fun except for the fact i’m broke and don’t feel like getting my ass beat while wasting money…is randal up for it? i got a birthday cake at work (aka 30 minutes of not having to work yet getting paid). hrmm…i’m not free until later, though, prolly around 8:30ish. let me know, g’s.
2001-07-16 14:49:33 – Laura
james, whatever… :-) are you at work? you should come visit me. haha. i still haven’t called you. i suck.
2001-07-16 15:20:23 – rand0m
… http://www.aol.com/aim/ … also … some LQ sounds like fun, but I’m in the same boat as Laura; I don’t have a ton of $ to spend on getting my ass smoked. Yes, it’d be fun though … I’m outta here tonight around 5:15 — as soon as a punk-ass colocation gets his shit out of here. righty-o
2001-07-16 17:05:52 – The Disco Nova
hmm, might not happen, I’m going over to super-hot chicks place tonight. Hopefully I’ll be there for while
2001-07-16 18:02:04 – The Disco Nova
Nix that, hot chick has family emergency (yeah right). I’ll get a couple of rounds for Laura and Randall. One of you guys email me with a phone # right quick. Silly_gi_guy@yahoo.com

mostly worthless day

Didn’t do much of anything of any real value today. I wrote up a lot of stuff for the php-conversion but that’s about it. Went out with tore for some ol’ fashioned conversation; it was good. Other than that, I’m just at home chillin’. Anyone doing anything today [sunday] ? I am thinking I’d be down for some low-intensity stuff if anyone wants to get together.

Janelle leaves for the east coast in a couple hours to scout colleges. I’m jealous [grin] … actually, yea, I am. hrmm. I hope all goes well and that some fabulous place recognizes her good qualities and gives her some $.

On another note, I need to do the dishes, do the laundry, mow the lawn and clip my fingernails. Exciting schedule, eh?

party & finally

Had a rather boring day at work today; didn’t do a whole lot, didn’t get much done. I was pretty icey all day … not sociable to any stretch. Anywho, went to Tony’s party and it was good. Lots of people, plenty of booze — I didn’t drink a drop; too much risk there. A police officer showed up around 12:45 and broke things up. I didn’t stick around for whatever happened; as soon as cspd showed, I was gone. Hope nothing horrible came of it.

On a much better note, it is 2:15 am and I am tired. Physically tired, though; my mind has been long since derailed and is steadily steaming to wherever it’s going. So, I’m sure I’ll have a fitful, mind-awake night — at least it’s sleep. I am actually tired to the point where I don’t want to code the php to make some stuff functional for the port. that’s a good sign. ‘night

2001-07-14 03:10:57 – Laura
I’m sure Tony’s party was great, but not as good as the *nsync concert. <screams> it was sooo cool…on another awesome note, carolyn is here…yay! ok, that was off subject…woo
2001-07-14 11:12:54 – rand0m
yea, I’ll admit that that *nsuck has some songs that aren’t horrible … so yea, where’s carolyn staying and blah blah blah?
2001-07-21 10:53:12 – mike
id rather be at tony’s party than goddamned nsync… blah!

bullshit and happenings

Couldn’t sleep for a damn last night. I stayed up till almost 4 am because I couldn’t sleep. At 1am, I figured I would be pretty tired as I hadn’t slept the night before. Nope, not tired at all. So I wrote some more of the php-conversion stuff for the site, then laid down. That didn’t work at all. Up at 2:30, a little more coding, then some relaxing reading, then finally, a little after 4am, I fell asleep. For an hour and a half. I awoke with a screaming headache and a hurting stomach. I didn’t drink anything last night, but I figure that’s what feeling hungover is like [minus the groggy-headedness]. It was complete bullshit.

Was getting dressed and popped the button off my cargo’s. Then I proceeded to find out that my sewing skills aren’t as poor as I thought; I actually got the button back on there, and I don’t think it’s going anywhere. Went to the insurance place to give them a copy of my driver’s license and found out that 1/2 my church congregation works there. That was irritating as fuck. But I was calm. Then I came to work.

Got a phone call from Jan McKinley this morning, HR @ Gateway. Assuming I sign the paperwork and pass both the background check and urinalysis I am hired there at $12.50/hr for training [5 weeks], 4pm – 1am, then I work the 3:30pm – 12:30am shift for a starting pay of $13.50/hr. I am pleased.

2001-07-13 13:34:46 – The Disco Nova
Not bad Randall. That’s about 28k a year if you work 40 hour weeks. Pretty good for an 18 year old.
2001-07-13 14:52:48 – rand0m
yea, it’s pretty good. However, I definitely got the impression from my interviewer that I should look elsewhere for a higher-tech job; he mentioned multiple times that I will probably get very bored working there. if that’s the case, then this almost-19 year old could be [and should be] making more. But for now, $13.50/hr, plus the HPI pay, will be good. A little over $40k a year if I stay at both jobs that long.
2001-07-13 15:23:58 – bastard
Working two jobs at the same time… While it can certainly be accomplished, you will feel exhausted and one of the two jobs will suffer. I tried it but stopped after one week, because, greed is less important than having a life.
2001-07-13 15:38:46 – Laura
Congrats Randal…are you doing tech support? I hear it gets entertaining…hehe. Yeah, two jobs takes up all your time, and 13.50 an hour is plenty enough for a young single guy. I agree with Tony on that one.
2001-07-13 16:19:17 – bastard
See you guys und gals at the party… <A HREF="http://rand0m.hpi.net/miscimage.php?file=misc/tony-map.jpg"> MAP </A>
2001-07-13 17:50:09 – rand0m
hrmm, I don’t see a problem with working two jobs. I have almost nothing else to do, to be honest. Not in college, everyone’s going back to school soon after I start, not really a whole lotta anything to get in the way. Sure, I may get burned out, but to be honest, I seriously need to overcome some financial issues. I’m looking forward to coming home and being tired.
2001-07-14 12:17:33 – The Disco Nova
Wow, you would be making about what I make then. Of course, I’m only working one job. <g>
2001-07-20 10:09:42 – mike
w3rd man, that sounds like a sweet job, like the exact hours and everything i was gonna apply for. You might be intereested in this other part time job prolly in about 30-45 days, this guy is starting a tech support company and he wants ppl good with any aspect of computers to answer calls in there free time at home. Could be pretty sweet.

grr … dunno why, though

I am just insanely irritable. I don’t know what the hell is going on, but I don’t want to talk to anyone, and I don’t want to do nothing, and I just want to bitch and be mean. I don’t know why. Grrr. [Irritated a lot]. Talked with matt until about 6am this morning. It was good. Found out why some people are fucked up, why others are not quite so. Found out that one of the things I fear the most is getting in a rut; living the work-friends-home cyclical trauma would inspire me to suicide.

I burn inside. I loathe, I growl, I ache. I am tired; I did not sleep last night. My mind. Too fast. No sleep. Not yet. 19 soon. Too soon. Too young, not old yet. [sigh] My Irritation. My Deprecation. Your Masturbation. Horrible cycle. Stop.

2001-07-20 04:11:40 – mike
you trying to be trent reznor now? NIN better watch out.. woo!

wOo!

So I chanced it and drove my truck down to the transmission place and told the guy what was happening [high pitched whine in second, horrible sounding third]. He said ‘let’s go for a ride,’ so we did. He drove, and he said ‘well, the second gear bearing is out, and the third gear synchros are about toast. Oh, and your clutch is dying a rapid death. I sat there aghast. He said it would cost about $1600 to have fixed. I told him that I had work done in december and that the tranny and clutch were replaced. He said ‘well, I’d take it back to where it was done.’ I said ‘I’m already here.’ He says ‘oh, you had it done here?’ — he said it with real, genuine concern: I was astounded. He asked ‘do you have the paperwork’ — pulled it out, handed it to him. He made a photocopy of it, asked for my key and said ‘it will be ready sometime next week. do you need a loaner car?’ I said no, but a ride to work would be nice. No questions asked, no hassle, just the paperwork and him being honestly saddened that the shops work didn’t last. I am thoroughly impressed.

On that note, I have no car. I need a ride home sometime today – free beer and rum to whoever gives me a one!

2001-07-11 12:45:20 – Burnz
Beer and rum, what time do you need the ride?

things I now dig

beer isn’t so bad when it’s cold
too much alcohol is bad
schedules are bad
no parents is good
dead tranny is bad
nice cars are good

have a nice day

2001-07-11 09:14:47 – proteus
after drinking gin drink lots of water or else the morning is bad
2001-07-12 08:46:33 – The Disco Nova
That’s why I read Randalls site, the sage advice I get.

interview and dying tranny

I have an interview in the morning with gateway @ 8:15. If someone wants to call me at 7 am and make sure I’m awake that would be great =] [home phone!] Also, I think the transmission in my truck is dying again — 2nd gear has a loud, high pitched whine, and 3rd gear just sounds horrendous. Going to take the mercury tomorrow and call up the place that did the tranny work before.

Here’s to hoping for the interview and for a non-dead tranny. ‘night

Update: Called up the transmission place, and they told me to bring in my truck in the morning; that means I’ll need a ride home tomorrow night [unless they can fix it pronto like]. The interview went very well — I am guessing that I’ll be offered a position, don’t know the pay rate, though. If hired, my particular training class would begin on August 13th.

News Flash: ‘Bastard’ should start his own site so things can stay on topic here. [mild annoyance]

Just for the record: The administrative department at UCCS are arrogant stuck-up dipwads who couldn’t earn a living if not for their …. Arggg I went up there to submit my in-state petition which has taken me 3 months to fill out, get the proper paperwork, get notarized documents from my parents fed-exed… And STEVE ELLIS tells me, sure get a copy of this that and this and come back and we’ll get it notarized and you can drop it off. So I do this, and LO and BEHOLD, the notary decided to leave early…. So again folks, thats: Ellis, Steven A (719)262-3380 Admin Prog Spec III A & R CH 200 sellis@mail.uccs.edu I hear he prefers fresh fruit…

[on-topic] Congratulations randal, now you can work in technical support for Gateway! I don’t think I need to say anything more than that.
