sunday night ramblings

So it’s Sunday night, and it has been a rather uneventful weekend. I don’t think I did anything friday night. I don’t remember … too much blurs together now. Saturday, though, I met up with Tim and went and saw “Heist” … decent movie, but I’d wait for it to come out on video. Supposedly Sasha & Digweed are coming to town on the 17th, so I need to buy some tickets for that. I also need to buy those Oakenfold tix from Matt. And I need to grab ahold of Tore, who doesn’t respond to e-mail and isn’t on aim, to figure out the thanksgiving trip schedule :: I’m going down there to pick him up. If anyone wants to go, lemme know.

On another note, it feels like things are just blah now. Life is going well, I make enough money, I have a few decent friends, I’m generally pleased, but it just seems like I’m missing something. No, it’s not god, so don’t say it. I’m just missing the special something that puts a sparkle in my eye, the levity in my step. Maybe it’s the whole downer-ness that’s been running around, what with Burnz’ terrible dilemma’s, my continued self-beatings, the never-ending battle of [unsuccessfully] crossing social classes … sometimes it all just gets boring. No, not boring. Rather, it all gets kind of stale. It’s not enjoyable, it’s not fun, it’s not rewarding. It’s sad :: I *like* to work 14 hours a day, because it’s one of the few things I enjoy. I just need that something, and I don’t know what it is.

Finally, I want to take a few lines and sincerely thank all of the people who have sacrificed themselves on the altar of freedom :: be it from laboring in the armed forces to giving up their lives for my peace of mind, the veterans of the United States of America are symbolic of the core that drives this nation. My deepest gratitude and undying respect flow forth not only today, but every day. I would hope that all people, despite their political leanings, agendas or personal philosophies, would recognize the astounding accomplishments that the heros of this country have made.

Thanx Randall.

I don’t really consider myself part of the defense effort for having worked at a defense contractor, but let me just say this… Cleaning Classified email attachments off servers from when dumbshits send them accidentally is a big pain in the ass.

Laura and I worked with a defense contractor. We made sure that manuals that satellite operators and so fourth were more pople friendly. That way, if there was a big problem, people would be able to access information quicker. So, basically, Laura and I saved your lives! oh, and Randal, I’ll be home next Sat, so that will probably be the easiest. If it’s possible, I’d love to meet you sometime that day (though, I don’t know what hours yet I’ll be working) so I can get that money deposited. As of now, I don’t know if you sent something whether or not it would get up here before I left for break because our post offices have been closed for a faux anthrax scare, and will be opened when things have gotten run through!!! aniwaise, that’s that…thanks for the Episode II trailer.

Matt, you worked at honeywell too? And I actually was a sattelite operator :p
2001-11-12 16:57:55 – satellite
not sattelite, but satellite
2001-11-12 21:09:32 – The Disco X
You obviously don’t know that much about SATTELITE communications if you don’t know about that old joke, so piss off you anal retentive fucko. I was seeing if Laura and Matt knew enough about it to recognize that.
2001-11-13 02:54:21 – Laura
i learned how to spell satellite from dave matthews band… and most ten year olds know how to spell it too. not a very funny joke, if that’s what it was.
2001-11-13 07:52:43 – batmanuel
James. Please. Enlighten us as to the connotation of your joke? Also, this just in. Grand Theft Auto 3 is the most addictive game that has ever graced the surface of my retinas. My cones and rods pulsate with sleep-deprived goodness every time I grab a big-ass vehicle and pursue my objet’s desire with vigor and passion. Hence, I kill things with a city bus and get the fbi to come after me. There really is nothing like shooting down police helicopters with a bazooka (At least in fantasy land alright, because I would NEVER condone anything like that in real life. . . THAT IS CROSSING THE LINE, I AM NOT FOR SHOOTING DONE PLANES WITH BAZOOKAS) Also, Computer Science class licks the ugly gash!

If your going to post something, at least have the balls to let us know who you are, so that I can beat the crap out of you when I see you if you piss me off. And Laura, Matt, if you were manual people, then you should know about the first 3 editions of DISA Circular 800-1?
2001-11-13 10:57:02 – Laura (speaking for laura and matt)
no, we shouldn’t, because we don’t care. we just made lots of money and took long lunches. the end. and, apparently, you actually have no idea how to spell satellite. gay dance music rocks!
2001-11-13 12:10:28 – The Disco X
Okay, I’ll tell you, it’s an old joke amongst people who work in satellite (yes I know who to fucking spell it) communciations and network control. The first three editions of DISA circular 800-1 (commonly refered to as the SATCOM Bible) spelled satellite as sattelite. So now over teletype or computer orderwire communications, it’s type out as sattelite. That field has a lot of eccentric people in it, like me for one. What kind of a loser goes around to message boards and corrects other peoples spelling?

In answer to that Disco, Tore and Randal. Get real lives…I love acting like I have room to talk.
2001-11-14 01:15:07 – realbighead
hey now, I forum lurk to be contentious, too; it’s not just grammar.
2001-11-14 04:22:45 – vehicular homicide
alright, for those of you that do not know there is this game out called grand theft auto 3, and unfortunately for those of us without jobs and little time at school, this presents a very addictive situation… hi, my name is ‘vehicular homicide’ and i’m a grand theft auto addict. sniff
2001-11-14 09:30:31 – realbighead
this guy’s like 1 part craig and 2 parts 12-year-old…oh wait, that’s just 3 parts craig. oops. How did I manage to turn the new guy into an insult against Craig…
2001-11-14 10:49:18 – Burnz
I don’t think he is new. I think he is Tony. If he isn’t, then I win the insult game, because you just can’t get lower than Tony and still be likening them to any vertebrate.
2001-11-14 11:07:56 – The Disco X
Good thing he hasn’t identified himself if he is tony, tony is on the verge of deserving a beating himself, can’t quite remember why though.
2001-11-14 12:42:50 – realbighead
tony’s a vertebrate? I thought hobbits had exoskeletons…
2001-11-14 17:15:37 – protozoa
yo! why you all gotta be dissing the invertebrates!
2001-11-14 17:52:44 – Burnz
Tore, you are thinking of women, not hobbits. Hobbits indeed have a notocord and thus rank as the lowest form of semi-upright spine containmented thingys, you know?
2001-11-15 02:05:04 – Laura
i REpreSENT that comment…hehe. the last time i looked, there was no exoskeleton. i’ll look again.
