The fact that beer exists....

A breakfast of consisting of a giant everything bagel, topped with a good quarter pound of thick applewood pepper bacon, two eggs, blue cheese and sharp chedder, sweet hot mustard and horse radish.

Served to me in bed, by my wife with a guinness...Her statement, "Hey, I thought you would like this."

Waking up to thunder and a grim, overcast sky.  It should start to rain anytime now...Spring thunderstorms are the best.  Especially when I can stand on the balcony and watch over the edge of the escarpment as the lightning flashes above the Lower city.


Also, waking up to find this furry beast curled up on my legs makes me happy...You can hardly see his blue eyes because of his abnormally large pupils...

I went to the organic food store and got strawberries and frozen yogurt. I forgot the bag reusable bag in the car. At the register I told the cashier I didn't need a bag. "Unless they're going to stop me at the door and accuse me of stealing." He said, "No, they approve of that." Then he grinned and clarified, "Not taking a bag."
It was unexpectedly clever and and funny.

For me? Hmm ... I suppose mainly gloating over the misfortunes of other people. Yeah, mainly croning over the miseries of others. It doesn't always work but it never completely fails. And then there's irony; which is kind of like the cream in the coffee.

Hmm, sex can have diminishing returns but it's amazing ...

Yeah that's pretty much it, then it's a clear run to the grave.

I smoked a huge fatty behind the building at work, then clocked out to come home. When I got in my car, they were doing a full hour of Neil Young on the radio. This alone would have made my day better.

But when I got to the house, my wife had returned to her proper hair color. We nearly had some good ole living room sex, she looked soooooo sexy with it nice and dark like it's supposed to be, but she had to go do something or other.  >:( Tonight is soon enough, I suppose.

I haven't listened to HAzards of Love in like six months, and sitting down to listen to it beginning to end, I remember why I love it so much.

I found a house I like. The only drawback was the crowd behind the house yapping at each other. But the neighborhood looked pretty decent and it had a huge yard and even a bit of front yard, too.

If I get it, I'm planting big fuckin' bushes in front to hide the stained white stone of the lower porch.

1. I took my car in for its first scheduled maintenence and oil change. The oil change was free, the maint. was $100. However, I pointed out that their website showed no charge for the maint. The service manager said that the missing prices on that page was obviously an error, since ALL maint. was showing free, even 220,000 mile scheduled maint. So I told them okay I'll take the free oil change, and I'll skip the maint this time, and pay for it on my 15,000 mile marker. The owner of the dealership came out while I was waiting for the oil change to be completed, apologized for the mix-up, and thanked me for pointing out the error. As their way of apologizing and thanking me, they gave me the maintenence free anyway. So I got 5 quarts of synthetic oil, and a mini-maintenence (rotate tires, safety check, and fluid refills) for free.

2. A retail store in the area called me for a job interview. It's just a part time day job but that's all I'm looking for anyway so it's perfect.

Lucky for your ideals, that word was sort of a nonsequitor. Or whatever I'm imagining that word to be right now.

I found out a few years ago, to my surprise, that I greatly enjoyed reading law-related papers. A few months ago, I watched Dark Knight and thought... what I wouldn't give to do that for a week, fill out forms, wear a tux, and then stand in front of a jury and convince them this man is innocent. If I could do that for the rest of my life I'd die a happy woman.

Through the forest of fear about the difficulties of doing such a thing, I have finally, officially decided to  :(try :'( to become a lawyer.

Thank goodness the only degree I thought worth bothering with was a humanities--- you need a four year human-related degree to apply.

You do not try. You do or you do not. Get your head in the game and now, my best wishes!  :-*

- Symph

Lucky for your ideals, that word was sort of a nonsequitor. Or whatever I'm imagining that word to be right now.

I found out a few years ago, to my surprise, that I greatly enjoyed reading law-related papers. A few months ago, I watched Dark Knight and thought... what I wouldn't give to do that for a week, fill out forms, wear a tux, and then stand in front of a jury and convince them this man is innocent. If I could do that for the rest of my life I'd die a happy woman.


Not to piss all over your dreams but you should check out a law firm and talk to some Real Life Lawyers before you go making any life goals.

I probably should.

What makes me happy today is the fact that classes I hate are almost over, what I have left to do is either interesting or simple, and I'm about to watch How to Train Your Dragon. Also, my head is not on fire. And apparently the book I bought to pre-study for a career in legal sharkbaiting is a book about how to survive your first year as a lawyer instead of being a reference, so, yeah... its got all this stuff in it about how your firm will be watching your every move and shit. Heheh. That tickles me somehow. Its weird. I think I'd enjoy the challenge.

In good news, with a humanities degree you could probably try and land a job as a paralegal somewhere.  And then you'll be able to see what working as/with lawyers is really like. 

As a law student, my advice is that either you should go to a top tier school, or to go somewhere local that has a good reputation and go there with a good scholarship and with the intent to practice locally.  If you cannot do either of these things, you will probably end up in debt up to your eyebrows and without a job that pays enough to take care of it (I know several of these people, the legal job market right now such as much as the regular one).

Former, long-time ex-girlfriend sends...
"Seriously, I don't know what kinda test God is giving me but just so you know I'm not stalking you & feel like this a total nightmare...My bf & I were out the other day & leaving his place & got cut off by a big ass truck so he pulled up & was about 2 ingage in a little road rage when I looked over & realized it was YOU! You were completly oblivious to the fact that you cut us off & when I realized it was you, I told him to just go around. It was like seeing a ghost! F.Y.I...not only do you live near him but you drive like a maniac & I just thought it was fit to eml u & tell u incase you wreck who evers truck you were driving."

My response...
"This makes me laugh. Thank you for making my day.

As for the record, that would be MY truck. You should see first hand what a college education, persistence, and dedication can bring. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Too funny.

For the road rage, you should've allowed him to use his big boy voice. You most likely caught me after work and I really could've used the entertainment.

Have a great evening!"


No one will get the full picture here, but let's put it this way; I still check the obituaries for her name every so often. I have managed to stay on decent terms with a lot of previous lovers, but this one.. if I wasn't afraid of being in prison, I would have introduced her to Armageddon(not virtually neither!). I have solid reason to hate her, but I do understand it's not so well off that I wish her dead, but.. it is what it is.

I was out cold for half and hour.

Then I felt like an ass.  Then I laughed, now I feel like an amused ass.

At work, two customers (separately) gave me their names & numbers. One said she'd like to show me around town. Another said I should come to a party with her tonight.

I didn't even have to ask...
See what happens when you stop trying so hard?
I decided to blow the chick off who wanted me to go partying. She told me she parties a lot. I don't. Why try to impress her with something that I'm obviously not (a party animal)?

Decided to put my efforts into the artsy girl who first gave me her number. Gave the artsy one a call but she didn't pick up.

 >:(

I suck at gambling.

You could call once more and leave a message if you're really into her?
Yeah - Decided to leave a message with my number attached.

Answering machine was a male's voice saying I'd reached the residence of [-insert girl's name here-] and his. I was, like, 'wtf?'

The party chick works for the bank, just at a different location.

LOLOLOL. You aren't gonna get a call back. Sorry bro.
Lol, yeah - I figured as much.

It's cool. Was a bit of a boost to my confidence :P And like you said, when I stop worrying about it, it just sort've happens.

Whatever happens, happens.
Had an awesome day off :D

Found Artsy girl hanging out by herself, next to a CD store near where I work (I had to go in to deposit a check into my account). Sat and chatted with her - Shared a pizza together - and I found out that the male in the answering machine was actually her -father-! Fuck yeah!

Hopefully I can get a judicial clerkship (after this judicial externship) and then work that into some sort of career as a research attorney, either with a judge, the state court of appeals research division, the state appellate defender, etc.  If not, then it's a total tossup what I'll be doing, but I know it won't be any criminal litigation.  Maybe civil litigation of some kind.

Anyway.  Got to pass the bar first, in February.  My friends who took this recent February bar are just getting their results back now.  So next year around this time I hope to be sworn in.  ;D

I utterly messed up a lab, didn't learn anything, didn't do any work, practically gave up on it, and got 19/20 (meaning I just need 25/70 on the finals to pass). Also accidentally cheated in another exam and got 8/10. Normally, I'd feel guilty, but the system has fucked me over so many times, that I'm glad that it's finally biased in my favor.

On the other hand, I've got nearly full marks on another subject, with a lot of hard work. Don't even need to take the finals to pass :)

Does it even taste good? Isn't it like concentrated yeast? Ehm.

It's a combination of chocolate and hazelnut paste.

It's also the stuff inside those Ferrero Rocher chocolate/crispy things.

You're thinking of Vegemite.

I am already in love with my baby. The little fucker wouldn't keep its hands down out of its face for a good picture. The nurse told me to get up and do some exercises to try to move it so that she could see the spine and snap photos, but s/he rolled around right in the middle of her pictures. What a little turd! The whole time the baby kept smacking and kicking, too, and made 'rap hands', like when the bust freestyles, y'know, in front of their face and get mean muggin'.

The doc asked me what I thought it was, and I said I get boy vibes, but my sister (who came with manboog and I) said she thought it would and should be a girl. I've declined knowing, and goodness, my obstetrician magician has a great poker face. He just shrugged and said, "We'll see!"

I some an (asian) Indian man sporting the hitler mustache the other day at work. He also had the most terrible comb over. He had like  5 small lumps of hair combed over, and it was like so noticeable. I felt sorry him. He's never getting any.

Feel sorry for yourself. What you don't know is that this guy you're pitying has 13 inches of fun dangling low and is known in the rave scene as the Meat King. It's not uncommon to see him at the club, dropping E and lining up sluts to service him in the women's bathroom. He also invented the 8-track, was a founding member of Boys2Men and once killed a burglar with a samurai sword.

I just finished umpteenth playthrough of the entire MGS series and now feel confident in saying that I get it.  All of it.  Even the mindrape that is the ending of MGS2.

Quote from: The Book of Lies
    Verily, love is death, and death is life to come.
    Man returneth not again; the stream floweth not
      uphill; the old life is no more; there is a new life
      that is not his.
    Yet that life is of his very essence; it is more He
      than all that he calls He.
    In the silence of a dewdrop is every tendency of his
      soul, and of his mind, and of his body; it is the
      Quintessence and the Elixir of his being.  Therein
      are the forces that made him and his father and his
      father's father before him.
    This is the Dew of Immortality.
    Let this go free, even as It will; thou art not its
      master, but the vehicle of It.

I'm a little surprised that Crowley could move me so much.

I acquired the PS1 MGS last year sometime. Man, I love that game. Too bad I don't really play it. Just like I picked up the old PS1 Xenogears but didn't make it all the way through a replay. Now I just have to figure out a way to acquire Suikoden 2 (all time favorite,) without spending $150. I would definitely play through Suikoden 2. It has so much depth to the story compared to most JRPGs, kind of like FFT.

Happy thought: Old school Matchbox 20.

For me, 'really, really forward' would be something along the lines of saying this: "For a decade, every time I've seen you smile, that light in your eyes, the bow of your lips, I've dreamt only of kissing you. Would you make my year, and allow me just one kiss?"

This email my dad sent out to family, friends and co-workers:

I'm home.

 

It was great to have a normal breakfast at the hospital before I left: cheese omelet, hash browns, oatmeal, and apple sauce, together with 3 cups of coffee throughout the morning.

 

Susan and I asked our final questions to the surgeon this morning, such as how large the possible tumors are and how far separated they are. My final question to my surgeon was how long I should expect to stay at home before I return to work. He said "two to three weeks." When I suddenly jumped out of my reclining chair to shake his hand, he was a little shocked and said "probably two weeks."

 

I feel pretty good. On our way home we stopped at the Library to pick up the copy of Michael Connelly's latest novel, The Fifth Witness, that I was holding on reserve.

The day after his surgery, which included a surprise bowel resection, they didn't come fast enough to take him to walk. So, he got up on his own and used a sheet as a robe, until they got him one, and we carried the plugs for the monitors so they didn't bang around while he strolled for a half hour.

This morning was rather interesting, I'll share.

I have been awake for less than thirty minutes; I'm dressed, pressed and headed out of my apartment to get into my truck. On my way out, I hear a woman exclaim in the most heavy-country accent I have heard in Florida, "Thank you Jesus! I have my crucifix! I'm saved!!"

Now normally I take hearing religious praise and worship in stride; to each his own, yes? However, something inside me demanded I turn around to get a real good view of this one.

I'm staring at her, and there she is, staring right back in some disbelief. Seconds later she asks, "What? You don't believe in God and His son Jesus?"

These conversations/debates are always futile, but I felt rather combative so I decided to respond. In a kind, polite manner I said, "No ma'am, I do not, but I do find your dramatic public display laughable."

...and into my truck I continue. It wasn't my normal start to the day and so this makes me slightly happy.

Getting lost as shit in Greensboro because the highway ramp was closed, but I got to sing Mushroomhead the whole time with manboog!
Then, when we got off on the exit for home, he kissed me. Which is weird. Because he's not usually very affectionate. He was like, "FINE I WILL NEVER TRY TO KISS YOU AGAIN" because I looked at him like, "Uh, whoa." -- But I told him it's because I thought he was going to kiss me and tell me he loved me before crashing us into some flaming death into another car.

Yeaaah.

I'm supposed to go to the park today to play ultimate frisbee with my sister and a bunch of her friends.  We were going to play whether it's raining or not (this time of year, it's always raining here) but not if there was lightning.  Yesterday, looking at the forecast, it said we were supposed to have thunderstorms starting around noon.  This was a huge letdown.

I wake up today and it's beautiful out.  I check the forecast, and the thunderstorms have been moved back to 8 pm.  ;D

I'm glad I can make somebody happy, other than myself, manboog and my dog. I liked it! But, the important question is, Rhyden ... which one is the deal breaker for you? Bale or Kermy?

Speaking of making myself and the dog happy, I made Thanksgiving supper (Thanks Barz for getting me on that kick), but with ham instead of turkey (picky ass fuckin' manboog), and mashed taters and green bean casserole for dinner tonight. The latter two made me the happiest, and the dog wasmade happy by the ham I gave her.

Quote
While Japan's NHK has been working on the successor to HDTV, Super Hi-Vision, for years, there haven't been any direct-view HDTVs capable of showing its full 7,680 x 4,320 pixel resolution until this prototype unveiled today by Sharp. Its 103 pixels per inch may be just a fraction of those found in some of the pocket displays we've seen at SID this week, but that's still far more than the 36ppi of a 60-inch 1080p HDTV. If estimates are correct, we'll still be waiting until around 2020 for that 33MP video and 22.2 channel sound to actually be broadcast, although there's a possibility of some demonstrations happening during the 2012 Olympics. Skip past the break for the available specs and a video demonstration, or just head over to the NHK's Science & Technology Research Laboratories in Tokyo between the 26th and 29th of this month.


Holy shiitake, that sounds awesome.  Musashi, it is your duty as the sole inhabitor of Japan (that I know of anyway) to check this out and report back to us.

Jesus, dude. When are they just going to skip to plugging us right into the damn machines, themselves? With definition -that- defined, I highly doubt the human eye will even be able to appreciate all of that "7,860x4,320 pixel resolution".

I think the resolution of the average eye is 600-720 dpi...so 36ppi isn't even close, if your face is only inches from the screen.

http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/question7.htm

Basically analog = smooth and fluid whereas digital = compressed into a more limited set of values.
Like how the d-pad on a videogame controller only allows it to send 8 different instructions, but the analog sticks can work for any direction.  Digital has to be this or that, while analog can be anywhere in between.

My understanding is probably extremely basic though.

I was being a smartass, mostly.  Not referencing electronics or broadband internet at all.

I often daydream that 'analog' is an expression made up by humans that describes the sum of an action or experience.  Kind of how limits apply to measured quantities like a 'gallon' or a length of time like 'sixty seconds' and are completely arbitrary.  Everything is digital, once you break it down to the most basic level.  Either something exists or it doesn't.  There is no inbetween.  The waveform that describes analog is just a simple way to describe varied intensity of many digital bits.  Think integrals, or something.

Anyway, that probably doesn't make much sense to anyone.

Ignorant congresswomen/congressmen make me angry and humored at the same time.

And there's no such thing is Pi.  That's just something we made up.  Like asymptotes and limits.  They're not real.  They're simply convienences.  Thinking about this stuff makes me happy.

I'm not talking about the same thing Kismetic.  Though, I'd argue that those 'analog' technologies are also digital in nature.  As I stated before, there is no such thing as analog.

1) We have booked _(park)_ for _(date)_ for softball.

2) _(Secretary)_ is looking into getting insurance for the event.

3) We will need at least 18 players.

Only lawyers would think that getting insurance for a friendly softball game rates a higher priority than securing the players.

Also, pizza.  Some guy from Dominos just turned up with 4 of them, which had been paid for by card.  I had ordered no pizza.  He did not care.  Neither did I.  I gave him £5 and a cigarette and we parted ways as men who have accomplished a difficult, but worthy task.  I kept the pizzas btw.

I think the current religion thread is the longest one I've ever seen on the GDB that didn't get locked, and for the most part, people are being very civil in the face of what is undoubtedly a passionate subject for a lot of the ones posting. It's nice to see that the GDB and community are growing up to be civil to each other. Even in the marriage thread, there was not a lot of mudslinging and hate. Difference of opinion for personal beliefs and understandably passionate responses from those who believe differently, yes, but for the most part, civil and no namecalling. Today, I am proud of the community.  :)

I smiled today because when I got home, I realized it was someone's birthday and I got to be the first one to wish them a happy birthday on Facebook.

It's the little things.

Okayokayokay.

I love Angelina too. I think you have to be dead not to. And manboog never really finds people caked up in makeup or stuffed with silicone to be particularly attractive, but he used to be madly in love with Angelina. I think it's a mutual respect thing of her that started us both out on this long damn journey. Ahah.

Brad Pitt is attractive and seems like a decent person, too. And he's not a bad actor. I just. I don't know. Vinny seems like he'd pop a cap in Brad's ass so fast! I guess on that note I have to admit I love Al Pacino too, and well, Patrick Stewart. But they do not make my heart flutter as does Vinny or Javier.

My biggest female celeb crush, other than Angie though, is um. This girl:

Wolfsong says it's just because she looks like an impressionable 16 year old boy that I would like to corrupt. Eheh. But to watch Hannah drum is heaven.

I also, evidently, have a thing for brunettes.

I don't know how I could've forgotten Natalie. Maybe it's because nearly every day I talk about her at work. The one man (yes. One!) that works with me back in the pharmacy LOVES her too, so we're always glowing about her.

And yeah. Milla Jovovich is attractive, physically, but um ... Eh. Is it bad that I have to be attracted to someone on some physical level and by their vibes? She's never played a movie role where I've been like, "holy shit what depth and meaning" -- so.

Audrey Tautou is cute and makes me cry whenever I watch Amelie, but ... I don't know! I dunno. Maybe it's the language barrier. Ahaha.

AND BENI IS CUTE BARZ.

I just thought of another old man crush I have, but I lost it.

Oh, nevermind -- I remembered. I think we all know I love Daniel Day Lewis. Too bad the only men I ever get hit on are like, Daniel Day Lewis' great grandfather's age. :( Or by very um, strong, black butch lesbians wearing shirts that say things in rainbow print like, "Recruiter" ... and ... yeah. She did smell good, though.

Hard to see where that fits in with not killing people, unless you're just going to walk around horribly maiming them...

...which might actually be pretty funny, especially if the NPCs are persistent.

...which might actually be pretty funny, especially if the NPCs are persistent.

I always play MGS games 3 times.  On the first playthrough I kill/sneak/incapacitate as appropriate, depending on the situation.  The second playthrough is a pacifist run where nobody is killed unless the plot demands it.  The final playthrough is the psychopath run, where everyone must die.

Besides, how cool would it be to sneak up on a group of 3-5 mercs who are blocking your path, chop their gorram arms off and then leg it in the confusion?

E:  I also dearly hope there will be a (quickly patched) bug where decapitating enemies does not kill them.

I was completely enraged and yelling at myself in my apartment wasn't going to do. On a positive note in accordance with this thread, I will say that I managed to smooth things over with the girly. She found it rather comical after an explanation was provided. I'm seriously doubting the prick that made the mistake in the first place saw it as funny, nor do I believe he'll make that mistake again anytime soon. I have never had a problem detailing someone's incompetence when gross negligence is the case, but I honestly felt bad after I cooled down because vicious is the most accurate description of how bad I laid into that fellow.

I don't know why you were so mad, though;  if you'd never said the 'L' word to her, and she overreacted, like, "Oh my god, you _LOVE_ me!?" and starts bouncing off the walls ...

You could always just say, "Oh, crap, that was for my other girlfriend."

This is still in the stage where first impressions matter. It's that simple. Had I not been called by my brother (who works with her mother and heard the very negative comment she made when she read it) and been able to strip that note off, I would've expected her to have read it and backpedaled three hundred feet. I would have, that's my basis. If some girl told me she loved me after a WEEK, good-bye. That's insanity. I do care for this one very much and that type of mistake threatened everything. Yes, I'll admit I overreacted and probably could've played it off jokingly as you suggest, but that wasn't my plan. This experience wasn't to be a - haha - comical matter. I was aiming for something a little deeper and it was ruined. Not intentionally and I'll hold no grudges against the fellow as we all make mistakes. The situation was salvaged, but the fact remains the plan and the experience I was aiming to produce was ruined. It will make a good joke later on, I'm sure.

You don't have to agree or understand, that doesn't bother me.  :-*

I mean, correct me if I'm wrong, but the way I see it - women don't typically like being 'tested for faults' - Even if she came up "perfect" for you. Could possibly make her more self-conscious around you, for awhile following.

But you know her better than any of us so I'm sure you're doing what's best for the situation.

No need to correct you GB- to each his own. I have always been very blunt, honest and open. Typically it's worked out for the best, but believe me, I hear exactly what you're saying. Some women do not like to be "tested" knowingly, and it's very true it could make her more self-conscious, but that I find as a fault. I do not want you covering up because you're ashamed of what you look like, or this or that. That's a deal-breaker for me.

I work with this guy who thinks he is the shit, he mouths off to everyone and talks back to his management and more experienced co-workers, he told me on his first day of work that his goal is to offend everyone. He tries to be chummy with me and I don't know why. Everyone hates his entire existence. He's a VOLUNTEER firefighter and acts as though he's halting forest fires single-handedly every weekend. I hate the guy, he's the cliche' jock type. He's twenty-five and comes off to me as a seventeen year old with a mans body. (the guys in good shape)

Now, my boss, he's pretty fucking quirky and big and goofy. Long red hair, freckles, looks like a big goofy gamer to me and is in  his mid thirties, the reason I'm so chummy with my boss is because I knew him when I was younger and he was my tae kwon do instructor. At that time he was a 4th degree blackbelt, since then he's gone on to master more than two other martial arts and runs his own school. He's a badass but very much doesn't look or act the part, which is what's glorious.

What made today great was the idiot volunteer firefighter started shit with my boss, after three warnings of 'don't touch me' the firefighter pokes my boss in the shoulder with two fingers. What ensued was a face to dishwasher, then face to refrigerator, then a face to the floor. My boss used one hand and two fingers of the other hand. As my  boss put the idiots face into various shit, he talked the guy through it which was the most humorous part. "here's the washer" "now the fridge" "Now lay down cause you touched me and I warned you". I <3 my job.

I unbricked a password-locked iPhone 3GS, jailbroke it, and then carrier unlocked it tonight.

It seemed a pretty simple process with the programs you can download to do it.

My flight touched down in Charlotte after being gone a week, and I can't remember the last time I felt so good.  All my life, I've been sort of a rambler, going where the wind takes me, but for once ...  You know, after all's said and done, I have an ocean to the east, and mountains to the west, and a nice little temperate paradise.  I remember thinking, as the wheels touched down, "I'm home."  For the first time ever, I've found home.

Or maybe I'm just getting old.  Bah!

There is nothing fucking temperate about 90 degree weather before June you crazy old man.

That being said, if we can ever find jobs in the mountains, I am so totally game. I could deal with a little bit more snow and a little bit cooler temperatures while having the beautiful country around me.

And apparently, there'd be less bears roaming the damn streets than in the triad, too.

I would love having people out.  BUT.  When it comes to a choice between having people come out for my graduation in January when the weather here is crap (and I would not want some people to drive the distance required through the likely weather), and having them come out to mine and Z's wedding that fall when the weather is usually tolerable-to-good (and driving would be possible), I would prefer people to wait to come out later in the year.  I can't promise it will be as awesome as the OHST/Biscuits wedding, but I fully intend that there will be a pig roast reception.  I don't know where we'd put everyone, but I've got a year and then some to get it worked out.

Thinking about that wedding is another thing that has made me happy today.   ;D

I found my kitty. All is once again right with my world.

 ;D

In semi-related note that the judges are still out on, I caught my cat sitting on the floor like a rabbit this weekend.  She scrambled forward by using only her front paws and dragged her rear on the floor to clean herself after using the litter box.  I think I'm both horrified and impressed by her ingenuity.

I started volunteering at an Oxfam store yesterday.  Apparently, any books that haven't been sold after a month get bundled up randomly and sold to bookstores at £1 for 20.  I've been given the go ahead to grab a few random bundles for myself at the same price.  Even if they're crap, 5p a book is not to be sniffed at.

Tomorrow my boss leaves for a little over a week, and I get to watch his dogs again.

Since I do web development, I'll be able to work from his house, which has a big fenced-in backyard and inground pool.

So basically my routine will look like this:

Feed the dogs, walk the dogs, work, lounge poolside, swim, work, feed the dogs, walk the dogs, geek out, love life.

Did I mention I get paid to do this? Man, my job rocks.  :D

This sweet lady from my dance studio offered to let me swing by her place and try on an old dress so that I don't have to buy one for the show in September.  Their house is incredible.  She and her husband are incredible.  And, omg, the clothes.  THE CLOTHES.  I thought this would be an awkward, "run in, try on the dress, try not to say anything stupid while you're there" engagement.  We have the same shoe size.  We have almost the same dress size.  And she kept throwing beautiful dresses at me to try on, regardless of whether they actually would work for the dance.  I got to try on one half of a $3,000 pair of Christian Louboutin shoes.  And then she made her husband, a hobbyist photographer, take pictures so that I'd have some to look at, which resulted in me having pictures in which I don't look deformed.  AND THEY WERE SO DAMNABLY SWEET.

I open the fridge and see they left the two empty bottles of yager meister in the freezer. No go. Funny. I don't remember drinking that much. Heh heh. Which is funny because I didn't black out.

Dearest Susan,
 
I’ve been thinking a lot about where I want to celebrate your birthday. The destination had to be not only special but also a new experience for us. This was not an easy choice because we’ve been to so many great places already.
 
I’ve made a reservation for Friday at 1:30 PM. I know you’ll enjoy it and I hope you will be surprised.

Barz! Tomorrow is Friday and I'd like to know what and where the wise man decided on. Please?

Not just that.

Tomorrow my sister's coming down from South Carolina with her husband for Fourth of July weekend.
I'm getting a free oil change in an hour.
Cooking tonight. Lots and lots of cooking. Or tomorrow night. Either way, cooking is fun.
STROOOOOOONG coffee.
Chick who booty-called me then turned into a total bitch once I got there just posted pictures of her leg.
      Apparently, she was hurt pretty badly at the beach. Thusly - karma.
My guilty pleasure perfume: Fantasy, by Britney Spears. I just got a huge bottle.

Finding a song so good it transcends general dislike of a music genre (country), like If I Die Young (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NJqUN9TClM).
Oh yes, and the Ultimate Director's Cut of the movie Legend (http://stagevu.com/video/tvkodluijoqx). I love that movie something obscene.

Hash oil/honey oil is some noxious stuff.  I work for a licensed caregiver in CO, and one of the products we make is hash oil.


The residual butane is horrible for you -- whether you're smoking or eating the oil.  So, instead of that shit, in our candy we simply add alcohol tincture (about a quarter pound of trim and underdeveloped buds soaked in Everclear for a month with the liquid afterwards evaporated) to a normal candy recipe, and that shit is delicious.

A lot of those Air Force pilots are akin to bus drivers.  They're a bunch of spoiled babies who like whining about crew rest.  If you're looking to fly into the danger zone, don't call on the Chair Force.

If you're making hash with n-butane there's no residue left in the oil. I'm guessing that's probably also true with isobutane. They both have very, very low boiling points (below freezing), low reactivity, and low solubility in water. A lot of commercial sources of butane have additives that can be left behind and aren't good, but if you're making hash oil with a proper source of unadulterated butane and you have a good, clean procedure the hash oil isn't going to have butane in it.

Where'd you hear about hash oil having residual butane in it?

Title: Re: Things that made you happy today.
Post by: Kronibas on July 04, 2011, 07:56:06 PM
Our honey oil drips down from a PVC pipe into a Pyrex dish.  Once it dries, there are all these little bubbles in it.  I was told those were pockets of butane, but maybe they didn't know what the hell they were talking about.

Also, I smoked some brownish honey oil just yesterday, as a matter of fact, and it burned the fuck out of the back of my throat and the irritation lingered for around half an hour.

I was told, after telling folks what happened, that the discomfort was probably caused by residual butane.


Plus, to quote The Literature, the Cannabible specifically states that butane extractions are noxious to humans.  My copy of that book is about 40 minutes up a mountain right now, else I'd be able to cite a page number for you.  I'll deliver when it's in my hands again.

Those bubbles aren't butane. No way.

Also butane wouldn't be able to get to the back of your throat before it burned unless you were huffing compressed butane (and then it would freeze the back of your throat). It vaporizes far too fast. The second you burn the hash oil, the butane is carbon dioxide, water vapor, and a negligible amount of carbon monoxide. That sounds just like regular pot burn smoke.

I wonder if the Cannabible is referring to the extraction process itself or the end product. Because I can't find anything about butane extracted hash containing butane in it. And from what I know of chemistry, it isn't really possible. Especially at an amount that would have any negative affect on a human.

Anyone I've known that has made hash oil has just boiled it afterward to get rid of the butane.  It has such a low boiling point that just putting your Pyrex container (or whatever you may have used) into another container with hot water for 15 or 20 minutes gets the job done.  Usually a pretty shitty amount of oil but very potent and pure.  I guess you can go a step further and like, redissolve it in some sort of alcohol and then allow the alcohol to evaporate a couple of days...or something...I don't really know about all that though...It's not like I'm a drug lord or anything like that... ;)

That's odd.  You'd think surgeons would be the surgeons of the military.

You might have to work in a hospital to get the joke.  As much as I gripe about my arch nemeses - orthopaedic surgeons - it pales compared to how my non-pilot air force commissioned brothers talk about pilots.  Unscientific but quantifiable evidence.

QFT, however, to whomever pointed out that all airmen pretend to be pilots.  I'm doubting it in this case because to be true it means that either he was savvy enough to pick a non-glamorous plane to trick me, at which point the least I can do is applaud the deception by being deceived, or this particular group of guys had an abnormaly high jerk:nice ratio.

Sticking with the happy thoughts thread, though, I spent the weekend with four close girlfriends rocking out the holiday in Maryland and I'm so grateful not only to have them but to have them nearby, which was not true this time a year ago when I still lived in that strange place called Wisconsin.  There were no rooftop dance parties, pilots-or-sneaky-non-pilots-pretending-to-be-pilots, and greasy hangover breakfasts with David, your waiter (www.davidyourwaiter.com), back then.

QFT, however, to whomever pointed out that all airmen pretend to be pilots.  I'm doubting it in this case because to be true it means that either he was savvy enough to pick a non-glamorous plane to trick me, at which point the least I can do is applaud the deception by being deceived, or this particular group of guys had an abnormaly high jerk:nice ratio.

I think Synth and I were picking on you about it because we both have experience with military fellas.  I know I was, but it wasn't intended to be taken personally.  There are a lot of guys in the military tend to exaggerate or outright lie to women they meet casually.  There are guys everywhere to do this, but it's easy to use the mystique and image of the military to the advantage of getting laid/drinks/free stuff.

The guy in question probably is a pilot, and being honest by saying his plane lame, if it is true, is a good thing.  Honesty and modesty are desirable traits.

Good luck dating. :)

Oh, God, yes.  I know.  I'm sorry. I hate the internets.   >:(  Wasn't offended or taking it in any intention other than what was meant - which is that men are dogs.  (I've got that one down.  ;))  I just happen to think I may have stumbled across a real set of them in this case and that's a HUGE deal for the aforementioned lack of cool things that happened in Wisconsin.

The children at my work.  For the most part, all of them, but a couple in particular.

It's a beautiful thing to observe these little people trying to figure out the world around them.  Being so very young, they don't know yet that sometimes people say things they don't mean, or they do things just to get what they want.  They aren't tainted yet with the knowledge of how the world works.  They are just honest and authentic. 

They let their heart feel what it feels because they don't know yet that you can stuff feelings down or you can wear a mask to make everyone believe something is there when it isn't.

I think it means more to me when one of my wee ones tell me that they love me than when someone else does. 
They wear their hearts on their sleeves and I love them to death for that.

"Now I don't regret what I did in Biloxi when I was visiting. It's sad when women show more balls than a man."


Oh, my response?

"Shown your true colors. Looks like I unknowingly saved myself trouble. Thanks for the validation.

Lately I've been feeling kind of crummy at work becauseI get a lot of days off and I feel like I hardly work compared to everyone else on my watchfloor.  I'm pretty competetive, so I start feeling self-conscious when I think I'm not working as hard as other people.  Usually I work 1 day on and 3, sometimes 4 days off.  Worst case is 1 day on 2 off. 

As it turns out, I've been averaging about 192 hours a month, which is still 48 hours per week.  Realizing that I only work 2 days a week and still clock more than almost everyone here has got me feeling good.  I guess the only sad part is that I don't get paid any extra for it.

It didn't happen today, but I got to take pictures of an aircraft carrier. While standing on the deck of another aircraft carrier.

I think I'm happy for a month.


I should have taken you to my parents' house. There are 5 aircraft carriers in the back yard.

That has got to be one of the most beautiful fruits I've ever seen. A Moon & Stars Watermelon (also called Planet & Stars, depends on who it is sold by.); super rare heirloom that was nearly extinct. I'm totally buying a packet for next year so I can plant these puppies and save the seeds to keep the cultivars alive.

Today is my birthday, my immediate family didn't remember and my wife/child who did remember are out of state for two weeks so I figured I'd just be spending this B-day alone at the house, chillin after work. I was pretty bummed to say the least, but my boss scheduled his lunch time to coincide with mine and took me out to eat (he remembered my b-day, neat!). He ended the meal by giving me a card that let's me train in his martial arts studio any time I want, learning Kuk Sool. Very cool of a boss.

Quote from: Garrison Keillor's Pontoon
Lutefisk is cod that has been dried in a lye solution. It looks like the desiccated cadavers of squirrels run over by trucks, but after it is soaked and reconstituted and the lye is washed out and it's cooked, it looks more fish-related, though with lutefisk, the window of success is small. It can be tasty, but the statistics aren’t on your side. It is the hereditary delicacy of Swedes and Norwegians who serve it around the holidays, in memory of their ancestors, who ate it because they were poor. Most lutefisk is not edible by normal people. It is reminiscent of the afterbirth of a dog or the world's largest chunk of phlegm.

You're weird, sir.

I suppose.  I'm not sure what context they're coming from with the rest of the stuff, but the bits they quoted in that piece don't seem particularly douchey.  I think it's a pretty well-recognized fact that human beings (especially men) have natural tendencies toward behaviors that are prohibited by social mores (regardless of what culture you're talking about).  Stating the fact doesn't constitute excusing such behaviors.

Here's the whole post http://dilbert.com/blog/entry/pegs_and_holes/

The context for the cheating and dick tweets and stuff had to do with that Wiener guy tweeting dick stuff and probably powerful guys cheating or something. I think the point he was trying to make is that politicians are sometimes above the law and if all dudes were above the law they would be cheating and sending out dick pictures and raping people.

Also he said
Quote from: Dilbert guy
The reality is that women are treated differently by society for exactly the same reason that children and the mentally handicapped are treated differently. It's just easier this way for everyone. You don't argue with a four-year old about why he shouldn't eat candy for dinner. You don't punch a mentally handicapped guy even if he punches you first. And you don't argue when a women tells you she's only making 80 cents to your dollar. It's the path of least resistance. You save your energy for more important battles.

I can't eat spinach because when I was younger, this mean old babysitter I had cooked it, and told me to use some salt. She had a BIG, diner-sized container, you know the ones they put sugar in? yeah -- that, full of salt. So, I go to pour a little on my spinach, I was maybe 5?, and the cap was unscrewed. It all dumped over it.

She made me eat every single last bite.

I can eat raw spinach, but anything mushy, warm, or otherwise? No. No, a thousand times, no.

So I totally had one've the trippiest chain of dreams, last night.

The first starts off with me wandering around this massive shopping store because I've apparently lost my credit card and someone's been maxing that thing out - and it was here that they were using it. Just a bunch of stuff has gone missing around the store and, for some peculiar reason, I'm trying to find and locate all of the stolen/ill-purchased items. It's almost like a mystery game as I'm wandering around, talking and questioning random employees and customers as of to if they've seen anything suspicious involving stolen goods.

Then I'm caught in a battle of past and present with this demoness succubus who, despite the succubus name, doesn't look very pretty. Basically an ancient demon carcass or something. Dried, leathery flesh - missing eyes (just dark sockets) and a gaping mouth with jagged teeth and claw-like bony fingers. Well, I'm fighting her and - at the same time - she's forcing me to experience this hellish past aboard this titanic-like ship where there's nothing but 40's-60's style gunfights going on all over the ship. As I'm proceeding along, I'm stumbling into "living" dead people - Just bystanders who were shot to death but never actually died. It was all pretty violent. All I had to do was just continue wandering around this ship, I guess, but I would 'transition' back to the present - Fighting with the demoness.

Well, it got down in the fight with her where it was almost a battle of Will's and I, apparently, lost. She had spider-like claw legs that she used to subdue me, then she began just mauling the flesh from my body - And I sat there and watched in 3rd person as she stripped flesh and muscle from my body until I was literally a skeleton - But I was still "alive". She drops me to the ground and uses a staff to crush my skeletal neck, which leaves on my head - Which is still alive.

She tosses my skull casually onto the ground - Which then instantly forms into a child of about 5-6 years old wearing these elaborate robes.. In a surprisingly seductive voice, she tells me, "I'm going to enjoy raping and murdering you." Then, as she's bowing over me as if to start eating me again, I suddenly notice that the kid (I'm still watching from 3rd person) has a katana concealed within his robes. Faster than I can see, the kid whips out the katana and, in one smooth motion, slices open the demoness' throat. She wasn't close enough for it to connect, full on, but just the tip of the blade apparently cut open her throat and she stumbled back in a fountain of blood. Then, for some reason, she turned into a child, as well - except she lacked any of the fanciful, elaborate clothing. Then the robed child said to the crying demoness child, "I'm going to enjoy raping and murdering you." Then that portion of the dream abruptly ended.

Then I found myself stepping outside of the house I currently live in, walking out the front door, and across the street to my neighbors' house. I was apparently watching his dogs for him while he was out of town. All I basically had to do was feed the dogs and make sure they had water. Well, the dream skips ahead and I'm approaching the neighbor's door and I hear sounds inside, like a small group of people are watching movies or something, inside. I knock on the door and, to my surprise, some black guy in his early 20's answers the door. I'm like, "So where's the owner?"because, for some reason, I know that these black guys are -not- the owners of the dogs and house, but then the owner comes out - This middle-aged native american. Long, braided black hair and a fat face. He's a bit chubby - leaning towards fat.

So I'm obviously relieved to see this guy and I ask him if everything's alright - If he still needs me to watch out for his dogs - and he says that I've been doing him a great favor by watching over his dogs, he said "lessening my stress" or something to that affect. Then, in appreciation of my efforts, he offers for me to do a line of cocaine from this massive picture he owns made completely of cocaine. So I do a line. Kind've. More like a pick some up in my fingers and snort it.

As I'm leaving, one of the black guys asks if I've got any games and I tell them I have an Xbox360 and some games. We head back to my place, grab the console and, specifically, Left 4 Dead 2.

The dream ends as I'm heading back across the street.

(Parents that allow their children to enter obesity should be charged with something awful.)
First off - Lmfao @ the text message.

Secondly, I remember hearing something recently on the news - a question posed by a study, I suppose - about whether or not children who're obese are at risk at being taken away from their family.

Edited to add:
Did some searching and pulled up a report from CNN.

"Should parents lose custody of obese children?" (http://thechart.blogs.cnn.com/2011/07/13/should-parents-lose-custody-of-obese-children/)

Yes, the parents who are working double shifts because their company has been downsizing, and are little more than semi-functional zombies by the time they get "home," which really is little more than a place to sleep for 5 hours before they wake up and do it again.  Let the man who can regularly plan and cook a nutritious and balanced meal for his family under these circumstances cast the first stone.

Or maybe the parents who are functionally-illiterate high-school dropouts, who don't know RDA from RZA, and buy the cheapest shit they can find with the scant charity the state provides for them.  And while we're at it, let's force their kids to go outside and play and exercise in the hood, where somewhere between 50 and 75% of the males passing by will have criminal records.

Or maybe the parents who are just eating the way their parents ate before them, and the way their parents ate before them (it's called "culture"), but whose social environment (particularly working conditions) have changed from physical to sedentary, and the culture simply hasn't caught up with this rapid shift in conditions.

I mean, all that is just hippie bullshit, right?  Clearly parents with fat kids are just morons deserving of scorn.

No lies there. All throughout high school, they offered the same chicken sandwich, pizza or random generic 3rd meal. Every. Fucking. Day.

When I told my father about what they offered on a daily basis, he remarked how the jail systems have better/healthier food for criminals (he's worked at a jail for the past ten years of his life so I think, when he says that, he's probably right).

We should kill the obese. Slowly. With food.

And make them work menial jobs with few benefits. The problem now is that they clog the healthcare system. When they get sick we should just humanely slaughter and process them into feed for their peers.

Every good country deserves an underclass. An underclass based on fatness is far more egalitarian than an underclass of any other composition. It's the American way.

Further more... hearing about the slack jawed idiot that used my credit card (to make sure it was still working) before he cut it up and burned it "for me" get in trouble -again- for stealing. It would be a highlight of my life to punch this guy in the mouth. Oh, yeah. He works with me too. I have to work with him. And my superiors often find it funny to make me work with him.

My new outlook on life has me pretty pleased lately.

I've resolved to do something I have been putting off doing for about three years.

I've trained in martial arts since I was in my teens and I've been specifically training in MMA (cage fighting) for about three years now. It was always something I did as a hobby and only a hobby. I'm an office worker 8 - 10 hours a day five days a week and I go to the gym and mess around 3 or 4 days a week usually. I'm also a victim of getting busy/distracted/lazy and just not going for a few weeks at a time here and there.

Still, I'm big enough, athletic enough, and have enough natural talent that I can beat the majority of the guys in my gym, even some of the ones who do train full time to fight, even in "office-worker" shape.

About a week ago I decided to go for it. I've fixed my diet, it was never horrible, but it wasnt what it needed to be, I'm 6'1 and walk around at about 195 - 200lbs, i can drop to 185 easily and if I cut water weight/train my butt off I can hit 170, I have started training regularly on schedule (6 days a week), and set myself to the task of giving it a go before its too late. I'm 26, if I don't go for it in the next five to nine years, depending, I will never get the chance.

So, here's to chasing your dreams. Fail or succeed I want to be able to look back and not regret never going for it.

One of the happiest days of my life was discovering what happens to my skin after three days of even, moderate tanning and/or tanning lotion. You ever seen a dark chinese person with that darkish gold skin? Like that, but no brown.

Some of my happier days are when I'm reminded of this fact, like today.

Also, there are very few sociology teachers at my school, but its my major, so I see the same five or so teachers every semester. One of them makes education downright fun. The nuer(spelling?) of Sudan in Africa remind me strongly of the blue Avatar people, except they wear these thin, white bone armbands about their upper arms and keep their hair cropped.

My Nug Brown Ale (a stoner play on the "Nut Brown Ale" ie. Newcastle) came out better than expected.  I'm going to try to make a pitch to a local dispensary and see if I can't brew them up a few batches a week to sell.  My dream job is to start a brewery and actually have fun doing it.

Gotta follow the dreams.  Also, I got a new grinder that makes rolling joints easy.  /stoned

"Wha- oh. Shit." He pulls off his rank and chuckles. "I appologize. My fuckin' buddies." the two people at the desk took another moment and then laughed. Good times. Glad sargeant major didn't see me, though.

Woke up this morning after a long night of binge call of duty at a buddy's house to a puppy bull dog attacking my face.
I played with the ferocious beast a while before my buddy's kids came out of their room and of course stared at me like three - five year olds usually do (while I was being attacked).
I said good morning and they said good morning and went back to doing whatever three -five year old girls do and... it was just a nice morning. The smell of breakfast cooking, smiling kids, cute puppies. It was nice to see family again even if it wasn't mine.

Um um so okay they have my Firefly posters at SDCC and Joss Whedon liked them so much he literally took them from the booth and then ordered another set for his office.  AND apparently he was so excited about it he was shaking and going "Omg I am geeking out so hard right now these are awesome." And then he told them he wanted me to do them for Doctor Horrible, too.  And then the CEO said he'd call me next week to discuss like putting me on retainer and shit.

Technically, he's just fucking around by doing Poker Face OVER the actual song (Chinese Arithmetic) -- but the original version of Chinese Arithmetic has Chuck Mosley doing vocals instead of Mike Patton (who took over for him in FNM around  the time of their third album and onward). I think Patton does a better job, but I'm a total Mike Patton fangirl, so there you go.

No hidden move-out fees or "You broke this and this and stained this" from the apartment complex I just moved out of.

..I moved in with my cycle-trainer from the gym as a roommate.

She offered. I get to save a little money and acquire someone to talk to at the end of the day.

Been a week. Going well so far and she more or less vacated the west wing of the house to me. My parents live less
than five minutes away, my old camaro is stabled there. All of a sudden wrenching it up to speed is a more viable option.
Mom's cooking is now on the way home from work.

Sadly, my downtown dive bars are a touch out of reach and I have a feeling I'll heavily reduce my drinking for the next
six months as a consequence. I don't like to party on this side of Dallas.

It's a kind of amusing set up. We're not involved but I've been employed as the on-call cock blocker for guys trying to get with
her whose feelings she doesn't want to hurt. The ride home. The 3rd wheel presence that doesn't leave.

Gonna be an interesting few months.

Received confirmation this morning that I landed a gig as an adjunct faculty member at a local community college.  They're testing me out with three developmental English classes.

I'm really stoked, as this is my first post-Bachelor's degree job.

In celebration, I bought a pinstriped black suit. 

It's quite gangster.

Today I learned:

If you brought the Sun down to the size of a white blood cell (7 micrometres), and then brought everything else down to scale, our galaxy, the Milky Way, would be the size of the continental U.S.A.

and,

A spiral stair case's spin direction depends on which end (top or bottom) you are defending.

Back in the day, all knights were right handed. If you were defending the top of a tower, the staircase leading up rotates to the right, or clockwise, so that the attacker (coming from the bottom) has to make a continuous right turn. Its very hard for an attacking knight to strike around a right hand corner with his right hand while defending with a shield in his left hand. However, it is very easy for the defending knight at the top to strike around a left hand corner with his right hand, holding a shield in his left hand.

The same is true for spiral staircases that lead down into a basement from the main entrance level, except that the stairs rotate in the opposite direction so that you can defend the bottom.

I dunno that Cymbalta would be the best bet for Piglet's anxiety as Cymbalta is more often prescribed for nerve pain and depression ... and Clozapine has a lot of side effects, compared to newer atypical antipsychotics. But I dunno if you should put someone so young on an antipsych. :( This is not a good chart.

and Clozapine has a lot of side effects

Once I went to a doctor for sleeping pills, and he gave me that chemical.  At first, I thought he meant klonopin... but he meant that shit.

I looked it up on the internet and saw where it had caused diabetes in a ridiculously high number of patients.

Plus, it had no recreational value, so I fucking chunked them.

Fuck lots of doctors.

Yeah. I'm not really into medicine as much as I work with it. Buuut, I love Synthesis and I don't like to argue with him (because he is a logical male and I am an illogical female) and so I'll just leave it as ... we don't EVER dispense clozapine, ever. The antipsychs we use the most at my pharmacy are Seroquel (which apparently has street value now, which is ridiculous because those pills are about 20 bucks a pop at the PHARMACY level. I can only imagine what they go for in back alley deals!), Risperdal and Abilify. They all have the diabetes and weight gain side effects. It's really no win, especially if you're bipolar/schizophrenic.

Sibutrex was withdrawn from the U.S. market due to adverse cardiac events.  If I had to go with pharmacotherapy, I'd do phentermine, but really he needs a referral to nutrition.

Cymbalta wouldn't be my first choice for anxiety...I'd probably go with BuSpar, unless price was an issue.

Zoloft would be okay for Eyeore.

I probably wouldn't give Tigger anything.

Clozapine is a last-resort drug because of the potential adverse effects. I'd probably start with Haldol.

Oh, we agree. Let's hold hands and sing coombaya.

Buspirone is a pretty affordable option for Piglet, compared to other anti-anxieties. And I agree about Tigger for realsies. He's just happy and energetic. There's no need to curb that!

Also, Pooh's getting a phentermine prescription is dependent upon a lotta things. Especially his age. (I had a 70 year old on that shit and they went to the ER because of heart problems. And were on it. What the hell.) It's just basically speed, anyway. I'd definitely ask him to consult a nutritionist first as well.

the french don't smile without a reason, and always touch when greeting someone, like a handshake, or elbows if your arms are full. i mean, if she's from actual France. so don't get upset if she smiles once every two hours or something.

Right, I've actually watched the thing now.  The animation impressed me, it seems well choreographed and pretty fluid.  Models and textures are good, although the lighting and material shaders need work.

It's not really my thing, but I'm a bit amazed at how offended some people seem to be by it.  It's hardly the most fan service-y thing around.  Hmm, where's that "I don't like sandwiches" troll pic?

I have had three hours of sleep, feel like there are ants crawling on my eyes, but I'm wide awake and feel ALIVE! I'm so nervous, excited and proud of the accomplishment. Company staff have been steadily pouring in and getting right to work, small problems here and there(as to be expected with any huge technological change).

I feel so satisfied with the weekend sacrificed.

... french toast?

Never heard it called that.  You lightly beat some eggs in a bowl then soak it up with bread before frying it.  Add black pepper when it's done, then put grated cheese on top and stick it under the grill until it's melted.  Then you put tomato ketchup on it.  And then you eat it.  And then you repeat the entire process because it was really tasted and reminded you of when your Grandad used to make it for you when you were like five.

Yeah french toast is among my favorites.

Eggy bread is okay, but I do it a little bit more awesomely over here. Instead you take a slice of bread, tear out a hole in the center, then begin frying the bread with some butter and you place an egg in the center, where the hole is. Fry on both sides till the consistancy you like(Yolkey for me!) , add salt and pepper, enjoy.

I LOVE a fucking piece of dark rye with a hole cut out to fry an egg inside of. Jesus Christ. Best breakfast ever!

But, my day thus far, minus that delicious breakfast (in lieu of Golden Grahams, suck itttt) has been so amazing. I'm going to nap. And then wake up. Maybe ARM, but probably play WoW until I get fed up, but I'll still smile becauuuuuse:

Which, I hate repeating, but I have some of the NICEST patients in the world. I mean, sure, there are douches, and sure there are the dope heads, but man. The nice ones make it so worthwhile. A week ago I received a 50 dollar Gap Card. Which is great! I mean, it really does help out. But then today, I received the sweetest note inside the sweetest card I've ever been given and it really made my day.

She came in and gave it to me and didn't tell me that she was moving; I didn't find out until I read it. She gave me so many hugs and she smelled so good, like gardenia good (I know. It's weird. I can't help that smells are one of the first things I notice.), and I just felt so horrible after she left because I didn't get to say goodbye  because she didn't frigging tell me!

Ah, damn. At least I have another person to visit in another part of the US! She's moving to Baton Rouge. I hope she enjoys it there. She's one of the most vibrant and lovely people I've ever had the pleasure to work for. I'd type some of what she said up, but I might cry and be embarrassed. :< I'll probably call her from work tomorrow and tell her how much I love her! Man. What a nice, nice day. :)

finally got the damn master Manipulator achievement in strategic mode for Simcity Societies. you bastard, i have you at last! then i went on a roll and got the Legendary Bard achievement right after. i can't fathom how many times i tried to construct a stalinistic society and failed. and creative mode is just easy. the cost of government buildings doesn't factor into that mode.

Just finished work at the bar, went to speak to a manager in a Pizza house across the road about a second job, recommended to me by a mate who works there, dropping of a C.V tomorrow and should hopefully start in a few weeks XD.
On my walk home got waved into my favourite kebab shop by the owner,  a pretty damn cool guy, affectionately nicknamed 'Fonz', and ended up leaving with a free kebab, and drinks.

Now top eat, drink and collect boots...

To my great surprise I was bestowed some high praise after my network migration successfully took off today:

Passage attached to a lengthy post-mortem to company big-wigs sent by my bossman:
"Finally, I just wanted to let you know that Steve has done an amazing job on this project. He has handled all of the work and a great deal of the details. Steve really stepped up during this project and I wanted each of you to know."

Then his father(owner):
"Steve,
Thanks for what you have done, and are continuing to do, to make this process work as smoothly as possible for FDC."


Like a boss.  8)

I talked to the sweetest girl ever on the phone just now (see pic!:)). I sent her Lord of the Rings 1 to watch. When I asked if she liked it she said, "Yeah naha I did but Frodo has issues." I said, "Oh, what kind then?"

"well, asthma." she replied, "and he's too dirty for having a girlfriend. He should take a bath."

I saw some old man ask a woman to marry him in the middle of town today, he got down on one knee, pulled a mic, and started singing Frank Sinatra 'Can't take my eyes off of you' To her as a busker (he'd obviously planned this) Stepped from where he was just playing beetle songs to accompany him.

Just sort of sitting here and listening to Louis Armstrong. Man is a genius. Contemplating storing again. Getting dizzy from lack of magnesium. I have a Mg pill in my mouth and I've got to get up at some point to get a drink with it. C'est Si Bon is playing now. I've got the fifth disc out of eight of Soul Eater in the drive, ready to be played.

I need to see how modern bungee jumping differs from regular old throwingmyselfofabridgewithanelasticbandstrappedtomylegsinthehopei'mnottoofatforit bungee jumping. However, skiing in a double decker bus sounds epic.

My girlfriend bought me roses last night... I came home late last night due to a game I play on Sundays, she was already asleep in bed, and I saw the siiloutte of the roses from the outside light coming from the window.  I stopped dead in my tracks and just smiled, trying so hard to not make a single noise to wake her up.  I curled up in bed with her, hugged her, kissed her, and said thank you.  She quietly said you're welcome and more mushy stuff between us and fell asleep soundly.  I woke up to the sun rising over those roses this morning... and I still can't stop smiling.

I never had a woman buy me flowers... let along roses.  I didn't think I would appreciate something like that, but wow... it's a damn good feeling.  Screw the stereotype... the thought is everything.

“I got tickled by watching Governor Perry announce for president. He’s a good looking rascal and he’s saying ‘Oh, I’m going to Washington to make sure that the federal government stays as far away from you as possible — while I ride on Air Force One and that Marine One helicopter and go to Camp David and travel around the world and have a good time.’ I mean, this is crazy. Look, every person, even public employees can think of a tax they thought was too high, a program they thought was nuts, a regulation they thought didn’t make any sense.”

I have been straight vegetarian for a little over a month now for training.

I've went from walking around between 200 and 205 to walking around between 188 and 192. I've been experimenting with weight training (something I never do for fear of the bulk gain causing me to hurt my cardio) and I've put on 4-5 pounds of muscle during this time.

I'm going from pretty good shape to really good shape. The new diet has my energy levels on top of the world. The bulk gain looks nice and doesnt appear to be hurting my cardio at all, I just need to be careful about over doing it. Something to smile about in a week that has been pretty bad.

A training partner of mine took a fight in September that we are all pretty sure he is going to win and the gym is always more exciting when someone has a fight coming up that you can help them with so I have something to look forward to in the afternoons.  :)

A couple of weeks ago it showered just enough to get the grass and dirt wet outside and my kids and I went out to walk around a bit and enjoy it and my daughter says "WOW! It rained A LOT!" So I told her the story about when I was a kid and it rained so much that the gutters overflowed and my neighborhood friends and I were floating down the gutters like they were a river.

My best friend Amanda. I love her to death. She is hot and raunchy as fuck.

Edited to add that since our entire town had no electricity due to a storm, we got super drunk and wandered around town (I fell down in the highway).  All this made the day even more awesome.

i found him too.

Its Dependence Day on Kingdom of Loathing! (warning, long, but I found it awesome)

Under the benevolent reign of King Ralph III, peace had reigned in the Kingdom for decades. The peasants prospered and became middle class, the middle class prospered and became wealthy, and the wealthy voluntarily gave all of their wealth to charity and became peasants. The cycle of wealth re-distribution was overseen by King Ralph's noble royal army, who facilitated all the exchanges and collected a modest pittance for the royal coffers. Unlike other extravagant monarchs, Ralph had only one solid-chrome swimming pool, and his vault full of meat was barely full enough for wading, let alone full-on bathing.
So all was well in the Kingdom, until a malcontent by the name of Frank Vivala began agitating for revolution. Vivala, it is widely believed, was jealous because King Ralph was more handsome than he was; in addition, Vivala may have also been suffering some sort of degenerative mental disease brought on by sexual promiscuity. In any case, Vivala claimed it was unfair for the King to collect taxes without letting the general populace have a say in how the country was governed. Apparently in addition to his other flaws, Vivala was unclear on the definition of the word "monarchy."
Despite King Ralph's repeated requests for him to knock it off and act reasonably, Vivala rounded up a rag-tag band of insurrectionists and engaged in a few acts of domestic terrorism, most notably dumping an entire shipment of herbal tea into the harbor. The peaceful, tea-loving denizens of the Kingdom were outraged, and pressured the normally peaceful and diplomatic King to put a stop to the rebellion.
On Bor the 4th in the second year of the Blender of the reign of King Ralph the III, the royal army soundly defeated Vivala's annoying and ill-mannered revolution. Vivala escaped into the mountains to live a solitary life of reflection, his band of terrorists thoroughly routed.
Thereafter, on every 4th of Bor the citizens of Loathing light fireworks and celebrate how wonderful it is to have a King who cares about them and takes care of the boring business of keeping things running smoothly. The celebration is commonly known as Dependence Day. With King Ralph XI imprismed, it's more important than ever to make merry on Bor the 4th, unless you're some kind of treacherous Vivala sympathizer.

Recently, I double booked myself with two clients, by accident.  The first client is a friend, and a longtime client, and my inclination was to stick with her.  The second client is a guy out of NY that I've never met, don't know, but without getting into detail, his contract is worth 400% of the former, and in my experience, if I do a good job with these new clients, I tend to come out with a shiny new number in my pocket.  I'd been fretting over what to do about this for awhile, quietly asking around to other contractors to find a potential replacement.  I told myself I'd get it done by Monday, but that day rolled around, and other things came up, and I put it off.  Woke up this morning, and it's an e-mail from client two, telling me in a panic the dates had changed, and hoping that I'd still be able to work.  New scheduled slid in perfectly.

i'm still into that show--- can't really get into watching anything else right now because Invader Zim is on at absymal times.

i believe in robots taking over world production one day, allowing us to spend 5% of our time maintaining them and the rest of the time doing anything we want--- going to school, volunteering, having fun, having bad fun, good fun.

also, the topfreedom movement. research, and be glad. best thing to happen to women's suffrage movement yet, in my opinion, and a stepping stone on the way to the intrinsic freedom to be nude in public.

College Humor: The Six Girls You Date in College (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIPJrrQlxzY)
I dated about half the stereotyped girls in that video.

Final Fantasy VII - Anime Opening (Fan Made) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsIYT3Bs6RQ)
This truly made me very happy today. Sadly, it's fan made, meaning it's not an actual serialization but it was pretty incredible so it balanced out.

How do you inflate it and get inside of it, and then get it in the lake, without having to roll it over the ground, where there may very well be sharp things?

Everything is going to be alright! Receiving massages now for my neck/back and my truck is getting completely repaired at no cost to me!!

Would you believe the claims department from the electric company tried to discourage me from taking my truck to a dealership for estimates? As you can imagine, the justification was that it'd be more expensive.

As I explained to the very nice claims lady, "Lessons will be learned here. That truck is nearly brand new and didn't have a scratch; now it does. It'll get repaired by the exact same hands that built it so brace yourself for the ONE AND ONLY estimate I'm going to get from the Chevrolet dealership."

Her reply? "That's no problem sir. Please contact me when you have the estimate."

Maxim, Blynn said, also offers valuable advice on how to bed female acquaintances.

"The February issue had some kick-ass info on how to score with a female friend who just got dumped," Blynn said. "You have to come on all nice and sensitive until you seal the deal. The article said chicks love it, but you have to do it right, or they'll get pissed before you can get any of that pie."

LOL. Nah. Five Guys is a burger joint. It is delicious. Get everything on your burger when you go. (Obviously, assuming you come to the states or that you get a franchise out in your neck of the woods.) The fries are scrumptious. They're the only place around here that has fountain raspberry tea. I could go on for fuckin' everrrrr, but I won't. It is only 9:40am. Maybe I'll get a muffin again this morning for breakfast.

But that will not sate my thirst for a Five Guys burger. At all.
