Okay, so it’s monday, you know, so I thought I’d update some stuff. There’s now a search feature on the left, comment dates are now perma-links, and a new mp3 of the week, as well as new updates in goals/plans. Also, the US only hit Afghanistan with 50 missiles this time around … we hit Iraq with over 2,000 missiles the first time around. All tacticle, no real big boys yet, either.
For all you slobbering men, here’s a page of hotttties — not done up models, just hot normal chicks. w3rd.
Here’s a post from a couple months back … I was quite amused when I read it.
On another note, I was thinking about Gila monsters today. What exactly do those guys do? Sit on rocks all day? Just sit there, sunning themselves, occasionally flicking their tongue … I can see it now … “Sonny, I’ve been sitting here for 20 years waiting for one of those Hooo – maaans to but their unbooted foot right in front of me. And let me tell you, as soon as it happens, I’m going to bite him.” At least they have some nice coloring.
Went out late last night with Laura and sat at Old Chicago and just talked for a couple hours. It was really weird … zero pretense, just straight up how things are. No covering up of anything, no tender topics, just good conversation. It was good. I am glad I had the opportunity to do it again [for once]. Indeed, she is not a nut case, but she does wear too much pink. 😉
Went to church with my mom this morning. That was lame. I also realized that she either A) has problems or B) does not talk to people at all. It’s a 25 minute drive to where we went, and she yammered on and on the whole way, and I replied with maybe 6 words the whole way. Four of which were in one sentence. So she just talked and talked and talked, and I wanted to ask her if she ever shuts up, but I didn’t. Too nice to do that to my mom. Anywho, church was blah, and then on the way home, we heard the news on the radio —
CNN — U.S. attacks Afghanistan. The United States and Britain launched attacks on at least three cities in Afghanistan on Sunday in retaliation for the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington on September 11, President Bush said. I am glad that action is being taken, and am relieved in the knowledge that it is with the utmost confidence that the United Nations strikes at the Taliban.
Yea, so I tried to jazz up my saturday night by making the post title up there kind of match the song that goes just like that. Indeed, this saturday night is suck. I slept forever today … till like 4:45pm. Woke up, called around to see what people are doing … and of course, there is nothing. Tony is out of town, James is going clubbing, and craig & co are all baked out of their minds. This makes for not-so-much-fun for me on a saturday night. I think I’ll just stay home. Maybe. I might go somewhere. Don’t know where. Maybe I’ll smoke a cigarrette. Maybe I’ll jump off a tall building.
Haven’t quit Gateway, and I have resolved not to. I really need the money. I went through my financial status again, and although I have paid off the $2k to the bank, and paid off the $1.2k to the Stafford Loan people, I still have ~$650 of credit cards running about as well as ~$1.5k to my parents. Plus, I want to prepay my semester at wherever I go. So .. I still need about $5k before the end of the year. So, unless I turn up the heat on web design, or HPI lands a massive contract, I will stick with Gateway. Even though I hate it. I can’t afford to quit.
I’m just tired of so much, and so sick of so much. It’s weird … in high school, the faster things went the happier I was. Now, things go fast like once every 3 weeks. And that’s a lot to handle. You know what’s sick? I wish I had more personal time so I could have things move faster because I like the ‘go’ mentality a lot. It fits me. My life right now does not. :-/
Okay, so I told Gateway that I was “sick” *cough*cough* and took the night off from work. I had originally intended to just quit, but instead I went up and saw Steve in Denver. It was really good to spend time with him 😀 I fixed his DSL, we ate at Macaroni Grill, and he kicked my ass at Madden 2002. Quite an enjoyable time.
On the way home, I did some more reflection, and realized that, indeed, the whole meeting with the ex was not a waste. Waste is a bad word. Pointless? Mostly. Worthless? Kinda — she does have breasts, so it wasn’t all bad. Would I meet her again today with the same circumstances if I had the opportunity? Nope. Feels weird to say that. Sure, she’s still a nice girl, and even though I care and often think about how she’s doing, it’s very much removed — I care, but not enough to the point where I want to get involved. Even though I do want to be involved, it’s not going to happen. huh …. I digress …
Do you guys like multiple short posts or one long, *updated* post? Also thinking about moving it to a news “Day” basis, instead of individual posts. I hope everything goes well, Tony — everyone have a good day.
** Update ** I am actually feeling ill. My nose is running live a sive and I have a massive headache. Kind of tough to keep staring at computer screens. I wonder if that has anything do with it — I look at monitors for like 16 hours a day. ugh. Update #2 I called in sick to Gateway again [hAHahAhaha] … if anyone wants to do anything lemme know … I’m up for a light engagement …
Came home to find my docking station waiting for me! WOOoooOoOOo! I’m posting from it right now … it’s shweeet. 😀
Don’t have much planned for the day ahead … I have a slight sniffle and an aching for p0ontang. Seriously, ever since that night, I’ve been a goddamn hornball. Oh well … [heads off to south nevada] Aren’t you going to KY, Bastard? Any idea when you’ll be back? Any word on the job? Anything else interesting happening to anyone else? Hrmm … apparently not …
This just in from Burnz’ site … [posted w/o permission]:
Randal – Another one of those people that I don’t know all that well. Always good for a chat discussion, always trying to bail out my software destroying ass. Someone who I totally disagree with politically but otherwise haven’t found too much ground that wasn’t similar. He also has been mangled by the tines of his relationship. A nearly year long gala that seemed to the casual observer to be nothing more than 364 days of having some bitch’s foot crammed in his mouth to force feed him his pride. A big time tech head that is friendly and naturally ordained to salesmanship. A closer, a people person. All that bullshit that Ben Afflek said in “Bounce”. He’s a goofy bastard, but doesn’t do anything to harm anyone.
He’s also got this hilarious conversation between him and a friend about this chick who’s really loose … extremely funny. Made me laugh till I cried at work tonight 😀
**Update** … Met up today with Janelle for some ice cream. Almost want to say it was a waste of time. I sat there, listening to her talk, which was nice, looking at her fine-ass body, which was nice also, and enjoyed the ice cream. Was anything of *any* value said or done, though? Nope. At least she was thoughtful enough to spare me the agony of hearing about her current boy-toys and her subsequent confusion. Good time, kinda … worthless. Maybe it’s just because it’s fucking wednesday, and wednesdays always suck ass. I just might quit Gateway today, too. Dunno about that, though. another update — just called in ‘sick’ to gateway … a night off — woOoOoOooo … i think i’ll see steve in denver. 964-4504, peepz!
Okay, so I had this whack nightmare last night. Even though Janelle and I aren’t good friends or anything really, this was still oddly disturbing. I had a dream where she was dating this dude [who had a nickname of some sort, but I forgot what], and it turns out that his name is Nathan Brown. I don’t know a Nathan Brown in real life, but in real life, I *DO* know a Pat McDavid, which is exactly what Nathan Brown looked like. So apparently, Nathan [Pat] and Janelle have been dating for a long time and blah blah blah and are getting married. I woke up in a cold sweat wondering “what the fuck is going on!?” weird, huh?
Dirk Hancock, a co-worker @ Gateway, who is also Dirk Kirklin from the KILO radio station, tells me that “whack” is way outdated and that I shouldn’t say it. He said that ‘w3rd’ is okay, though … he gives me a lot of shit for ‘whack’ 😉 He’s a funny guy.
And on one more note, my manager was talking to me about an issue when Craig IMs me and the window pops up. My manager went mostly-ballistic at the fact that I had Java AIM open … dunno what I’ll do about that. Quit? Not a bad idea …
