Okay, so this morning I read the thing from Laura, and I’m like “w0o! concert! score!” … I hadn’t discussed it with anyone, but I had lost my lucky sacojawea almost 2 weeks ago, and was pretty bummed. Well, along with the super-nifty news from Laura, I turned around and turned my laptop bag out, and there was my lucky sac! Two nifty things in a row! Score! And then, right when I got into my truck, Train, by Incubus [who I’m seeing tonight], was playing! Another freaky thing! Wow! And then, get this! I’m wearing the super-nifty gap sweater that I got last christmas from the ex, and I saw her sister today on the way to work! What a freaky-ass coinkydink, eh? This day just kicks ass. I’m all stoked and hyper and everything, and have been all day. w0o!
So somehow, I completely fucked up the authentication thing. I have zero idea what’s going wrong, but I’ll try and get it to work correctly tonight. Sorry! All the comments and everything will get consolidated into one ‘comments.php’ file as well, instead of being spread across 3 separate files. Should make things a lot smoother for everybody.
On another note, HPI is sucking wind pretty bad — I just might start looking for another job soon, just in case. That’s about the only noteworthy thing going on … other than that the wall between the geekpad people and I is still up, which makes for a semi-boring time of things. Oh, and my insurance company screwed up my insurance and charged me $427.34 for one month instead of my normal [much, much lower] rate. Which is sucky :: fighting with insurance companies really blows. sOo, that’s about it. Oh yea, I was thinking about putting up a communal list of people and their respective aim / msn / icq nicks … yea, nay?
Update: I know you people couldn’t care less, but the authentication / login stuff is fixed. Dunno what to do tonight … rather bored. ideas?
Update 2: I realized something today — crossing class / situational spheres is just a bad idea. Attempting to associate with people who spend the majority of their time doing things that you are not involved in is a prescription for not only disappointment, but also a breeding of contempt. I have found that it really sucks … makes it feel rather hopeless to try and pierce the social-bubbles that surround everyone. At least the weather is getting to be bad, which is definitely good :: I spent about 20 minutes outside tonight, just enjoying the crisp air and the falling micro-ice chunks … I hate wind, but dammit, I love fall.
Okay, so you’ll all be extremely glad to hear that 1) Logins are working correctly! 2) You can sign up for an account *right now* by clicking ‘sign up’ 3) You’ll get your own profile! 4) Comment Editing *IS IMPLEMENTED* if you have an account !!! w0o! If you see any errors or hangups or anything, please e-mail me
My day is going pretty well … I drove all over town running errands and whatnot, and got to sit in on an HPI finance meeting, which was pretty cool [if a little disheartening]. As for the cell phone, it’s now a toss up between AT&T and Voicestream … AT&T cuz they have a good plan (400/unlimited for $40) with tons of coverage, or Voicestream, because they have an obscene plan (3000mins / $50) but not-so-hot coverage. Sound off below … I don’t have much going on … might just chill at the perk, or, get this, at home! ‘night
The obligatory week-beginning updates are in on the left hand side there, including a new mp3otw and blah blah blah.
So I went to denver this weekend [for the 3rd time in 7 days — jesus christ!] and chilled @ steve’s place on friday night … then we went to a LAN party on saturday, and that was hella fun. HAhahaa, I shoulda taken some pictures, but I didn’t have a camera; it was lots of fun, and I got to meet all the guys from Denver CS … I’m really glad I went. On sunday we fuckin veg’d like nobody’s business. It was cool. We went and got some grub at Chili’s, where I ogled at this particularly fine-ass waitress and then tried to order her for my entree [unsuccessful], then we went and saw Monsters, Inc. … good movie; Pixar really knows their shit. If any chicks want to go see a movie, I’ll see it again
After dropping my box off downtown, I’m heading home, getting onto the interstate. I’m chillin at the left-turn at bijou and cascade, and this honkin’ jeep wrangler with monster tires and whatnot pulls up next to me. Light turns green, I floor it around the corner, and this goddamn jeep goes too — but doesn’t stay in their lane! So I, in my little tiny ring-a-ding honda am about to get sideswiped by this monster jeep … yea, well no fucking way. So I slam on my breaks and jerk the wheel to the left to get out of his way, and in the process end up sideways on the road … grr … I floor it down behind that mofo, horn blaring, lights flashing. He’s going southbound too … I think they got scared of me, because right before they were turning south, they changed their mind and went the north. Fuckers almost killed me; it was scary as shit.
Update: Forgot to mention that I got a notice in the mail that SprintPCS finally caught on that I am no longer a 3rd-party employee … so either I change to one of their normal cell phone plans, or they disconnect my service on the 14th. The phone hunt is on!
Okay, so right now I’m in Denver [again!] for a LAN Party on saturday. w0o … yes, I know it’s extremely nerdy, but hey, there isn’t much else to do this weekend. My parents came back from their trip, it was pretty nice to see them. Apparently I am meeting up with my sister for christmas … dunno about all that, though.
Was at the downtown perk today and saw Jackie Q — Janelle’s friend — and I found out that she works at the north pikes perk. That’s pretty interesting; I only go there whenever I want to get away from people; it’ll be a little weird knowing somebody there. Don’t ask me why it’s weird, because it really isn’t *that* weird, but it is interesting. In other Janelle news, apparently Tony saw her & her friend Ari downtown on Halloween, and she was a real bitch to him … dunno how much credit I put on that, but I don’t see it as impossible.
There was something else that’s interesting, but I forgot. As much as spite and hate make for [not good] conversation, I don’t think I like it. Indeed, I’m not a real hateful person … quite the opposite in fact. I’m so damn happy-scrumptious that I can’t believe that people don’t adore me. I think most people *do* adore me, they just don’t know it yet.
Okay, and another pretty big thing in my life — I’m looking at getting a mustang, which would necessitate selling my truck, or keeping the truck and getting a motorcycle in the spring. Due to financing school and everything, it’s one or the other. Ideas?
