Work was long this week. Sure, it was a 4 day week and it’s over in less than 5 hours, but it sure took it’s time. A much larger than normal amount of office drama taking place regarding some potential business. I’m usually pretty busy fielding calls and putting together proposals and such, but pretty slow on the admin side of things. Our upstream provider sucks ass. No, I won’t say why. Grr. I am in love with UUnet. <3<3<3 UUnet. Not much else going on. It’s Friday. I think someone is having a party but I don’t know. I am not in the loop on these things. I think I might go to Chipotle for lunch, but goddamn, that’s like 1500 calories in one go. Ugh. Oh, have to buy a YMCA membership today so I can swim. mmmm, swimming. Have you ever noticed that you put on different game faces for different people? We’re showing our wireless to some people today, and I’m playing the joe-blow sysadmin role, and then when I’m talking to Jack I have to be very, very clear, slow and thought out. Then when I talk to Corey, I go at hyperspeed and things just flow. I think the dynamic between people is what makes and breaks things, and I’ll tell you, more and more every day it is me doing the sales routine with a stab of tech to lure buyers. It’s fun, it really is. I think I’d be good at it, but nobody takes a 20 year old seriously in the tech industry unless there is experience or a pile of acronyms following the title. Just gotta do what I do best, I guess.

Laborious Day Weekend Update
Okay, so this weekend started out as suck. Serious, serious suck. Friday night? Yea, that was a no-go. I kind of sat on my ass thinking “what the fuck am I doing at home on a Friday night?” And you know what? The only thing I could think of is that I have nothing else to do. So I sat. And it sucked. Enter Saturday. I did mostly nothing this day as well. Until of all people, James came swooping in to save the day. He brought me a computer (ROCK! – which I’m typing on now), which is sweet as hell because it plays Counter-Strike, but he also took me over to Frank’s place. Frank is the shit. So that sucked for a while, we left, came back to my place, then ended up over at Frank’s with vodka & OJ. And then eventually some of the peep. So we got blasted, then got blazed, and life was good. And Michelle is a fucking babe. O .. M .. G. So yea, stumbled home at 5am, posted and fell asleep. Soonday. I don’t remember this day. I do not know why I don’t remember this day, but I think it has to do with 5+ hours of Counter-Strike luvin. I’m such a goddamn dork. I really shouldn’t spend so much time in front of my box. Oh wait. Christina somehow rounded up Mr. Bryce Case, and we all went over to Boulder Street and hung out. God, it feels like highschool. Only minus the stupid fun, plus the responsibility, plus everyone being older. Bryce is still the shit. Mad Props. We had a good time chillin out. Pretty good day. And Monday. Man, today was sorta busy. Went to work to make sure everything was running smoothly, came home, cleaned out my truck, walked up to the front door and found it locked, because I had just locked myself out of the house. Now normally, I would just use our “alternate” method of entering the house, but that wasn’t a possibility. So I had to call Shawn, who was less than 20 feet away, to open the door. I felt dumb. Ha. Then I spent the day cleaning my shit up. My room is spotless. It makes me feel good. Why do I clean on my days off? I don’t know. Guess I’m just a clean freak. Housematt did the bathrooms, though, and that was a nice change — didn’t take him long, though, cuz I did such a stand-up job last weekend. And then at 6:35pm, I got ready to leave. Why? Because I went out with Janelle to get coffee. What’s that you say? That I’m nuts? Overboard? Fucking stupid? Well, okay. You’re right. So I pick her up and we went over to The North Perk and talked. And talked some more. We talked about everything from school to work to people we know to people one of us didn’t know. We reminisced about the trip to Albuquerque / Flagstaff that we took, about Uncle Art and Aunt Joe … we talked about less pleasant stuff, and that was actually okay. She talked a lot about Ari. I didn’t say much about any of my ‘relationships’. She’s pretty smart, and I think she’s going places. She is also very attractive. And not just because we used to date, but because she just has a lot going for her that I like. I totally like her (*sigh*) but I’m fairly sure that she thinks that I’m a huge ass. A stand-up, nice, confident, smart, romantic ass. (that second part is my ego-boost). Anyway, we had a good time — honestly, I’m very surprised at this. Left her place around 10:30pm and came home. It was good. So that was my weekend. I’d like to thank Emily for the pep talk (thanks! :-D) and to Uncle Sam for giving me the extra day off. Sure, I didn’t use it very well, but hey, I’m not complaining. Drunk + Stoned + CS + YTC + Cleaning + Janelle = good weekend.
I am so blazed. No wonder other people’s groups don’t have so much drama … [b]Update[/b]: It’s Sunday! You know what that means? Cleaning time. And Shopping. And other Huge Acts of Enjoyment. Man, I don’t know what I’m going to do with my day. And I have serious doubts about tomorrow — nothing is planned and everyone is gone. I guess I’d better get around to finding more friends *hrmph* [b]Update (Again)[/b]: mmmmm, Counter-Strike + T-1 = hours and hours and hours wasted in a good way 😀
