Seriously, this is all whiny crap, which has to stop immediately. I've never been worried 'bout this "Valentine's Day", I mean it's not like the only day of the year to have or find someone to love or whatever. Ptse. CALM DOWN, GET REAL.

We got 5 inches of snow last night, tons of stuff is closed, the big thing is up to another foot today, and the 40 MPH wind gusts.

of course, my office didnt close....

Dude, what are you talking about? We have one joke post about Valentine's Day, and you go nuts. I don't think we're the ones preoccupied with the subject.

Mmmh.. In that case.. I apologise for misbehaviour Valentine's *is* a sucky day, not because of the "spirit" but the commerce. Rereading your post, it seems I kind of took it totally wrong, twisted it up and then turned it inside out. On the other hand, I don't think I was addressing your particular post, but rather the "hype" people make of it.

In other words, when totally busy with work don't attempt to post here at the same time, it might be bad for your health, because someone might get curious how many punches your face can take. :PPP

You can hit me with a bat now. Twice.

Valentine's Day is my dad's birthday. That's generally all I ever try to make of it.

Even if I had a gf I don't think I would let myself make a big deal... like all of our holidays it has been over commercialized to hell and back, as Ray says... plus doesn't this one have blatantly pagan origins? I mean... all of the others do too... but this one doesn't try to disguise it as carefully.

I always think of the Simpson's episode where they introduced "Love Day"...

For a short moment I read "Love Ray". But only for a very short moment .. short like "always".


Then again,.. fish is cool.

It's also my cousin's birthday. But I don't care about her, so it doesn't really matter.

So what? You don't have to buy her a Hallmark card or anything. Write her a little song, or a poem, or take her for a romantic walk or something. I don't think it's bad to have one day a year to indulge in a little pointless romance. In fact, if we could keep it all confined to one day a year, and the rest of the time focus on the more important aspects of relationships, I think that would be fabulous.

Frankly, some of my fondest memories of having a girlfriend are coming up with nice Valentine's Day surprises for her. Girls love that stuff. And we should love making them happy. So we should be happy to do it. Or something.

*Shrug*
I'm not big on rituals.

EDIT:

OK... so I had the kind of day that would make Mother Teresa spit on lepers.

I had to be in to meet the Boston Fire Inspector for our quarterly walkthru at 10:30 this morning. So I get up at 5:30 to give myself plenty of extra time. I leave the house by quarter of 9, on the train platform before 9. Should be in work before 10. Give me plenty of time to settle in, grab a coffee and bagel, check the e-mail and calendar for the day before he gets there. Easy.

10:45 -- I finally get to work.
Train broke down. Of course. The one day I actually need to get in at a specific time to take care of something.

Fire inspector got pissed and left. Came back later in a great mood. Needless to say I was in a spectacular mood myself.

Fun times.

The rest of the day I kind of just moped around the office in front of my computer, grumbling under my breath and composing pissed-off e-mails,.. except for lunch, which was OK... but a little greasy. Too much fried stuff on one plate. It'll have to be something nice and lite tonight.

The kicker: As I was leaving I stopped in down front to see if I had any new mail in my box. As I stood there I couldn't help but notice that all the boxes had a little Valentiney card and a couple of candies in each that someone had left there, presumably in honor of the holiday tomorrow.
That is, all of them... except for one.

Any guesses?

I guess I have never truly expected anything less.
Oh well, it's really a good thing I am far beyond caring what people think of me, or I might actually be somewhat offended by the slight. However, I can only assume it was strictly intentional... which doesn't help my outlook towards my co-workers all that much. Groovy.

Weather is supposed to be ****ty tomorrow. I'll probably have to get up at the crack of dawn to clear out slush... and yet still have to go in to work tomorrow since it's not supposed to amount to all that much in the end.

Life just doesn't get much better than this.

Sig says it all... Thank you Marvin. Sums it up far better than I ever could...

i dunno about valentines day, more like christmas w/all the snow we're supposed to be getting.

and yeah it is a stupid holiday just like all of them. well except st patrick's day of course, but i don't drink and i am irish. ironic really.

I have permission to call off of work tomorrow so i hope we get alot of snow otherwise i'll be forcing myself to go in because 'i need the money' etc. the only thing about that, however.....probably won't have customers...or i will, and they will overwhelm me like fireants on that caged chameleon i had down in Florida....awful...just awful...

God, i love fire fox's spell checker.

Maybe my Ghost Recon Summit Strike will be in the mail tomorrow.....i need new nationality to shoot at, i get sick of shooting north koreans.

Storm turned out to be dud.

As of now work is open,.. and I have no real reason to expect that to change. Guess I gotta get dressed and clean off the liitle bit of sloppy, icy crud that's out there and start getting ready to go in.

Oh joy of joys.

Well, I just drove 25 miles in the ice and snow to get to work. Guess what? No one is here. Well, a couple people are. But most aren't. *Sigh...*

We have the most retarded bad weather policy ever. If you can get to work, you have to come in. If you feel you can't safely get here, then you can stay home. The company will examine the weather after the fact and decide if it was bad enough to justify people staying home. If it wasn't, anyone who stayed home loses a vacation day.

that sucks Keyan


I got here fine this morning, sort of, roads are crap ontop of a pile of crap with crap filling.

I had to shovel out my own spot to park in because public works in its infinite wisdom ran a plow down the aisles and left, not clearning any spots, but even better, blocking all sports with a 18 inch tall pile of snow and mush!

most people arent here anyways, maybe 20% of the building was here by 9am..........

the gf's classes were cancelled, so we could do something, except the highways are awful and its a 50 mile drive........

i woke up to my alarm clock at 5am, watched the news reports, and at around 6am i decided it best to call off, then fell asleep on the futon, as i had a stomach ache and a headache, probably sinuses or i need to set up the humidifier.

i then proceeded, at 11:30 to go out and check my mail. couldn't get out of the driveway, so i walked to the post office to find......no mail at all. so i walked to the gas station on the way back home and picked up a gallon of milk. now the snow is coming down pretty thick. I've got 2 more days off, so hopefully my gr2:ss comes in the mail tomorrow.

Zee weather,.. she be suckin' hard!

Nasty out there. I crossed the street for lunch around 3 this afternoon... my shoes, socks and pantlegs still haven't dried out completely.

Show should go quick. Thank God. No huge teardown tonight either. Yay! Should be out early... early for me anyway.

I'm not looking forward to chipping my car out when I get back to the parking garage. That's gonna take a while.

Got the lowdown on the cards in the mailboxes. Long story... but the short of it is that I don't feel quite as ill-disposed towards the entirety of humanity as I did a couple of hours ago. Just back to my normal, everyday level of total loathing and homicidal hatred. And turns out I really wasn't the only one so rejected... so I guess I'm in some good company.

Still... it could have helped make an already crappy day a little less horrifying. That's all I'm sayin'...

EDIT:

So, getting back to the train-station parking garage from work was actually the shorter, easier part of my commute.

Getting into my car, which was a solid block of ice, was the hard part.

The doors wouldn't open... frozen shut. Finally, after several tries of each door, managed to get the rear passenger side door open. Get in, start engine, wait 20 minutes for defrosters to start working good enough to loosen ice to allow you to even start scraping.

After about 40 minutes of that, it was just clear enough to actually try moving. Tires were stuck to pavement. Ride home was scary, slippery mess.

Winter! Hoo-ray!

i can't cook anything except breakfast. my french toast is pretty good, though after the first 3 slices it gets burnt.

Work was surprisingly busy today,.. even though I wasn't working a concert. Got home a lot later than I planned.

Had to help load in and set up Paula Cole and her band for a rehearsal, and it took a lot longer than I thought.

Then on my way out of the building all these little things just kept coming up.

Then there was a broken train ahead of mine coming home, delaying the commute considerably.

Paula is playing tomorrow. It's gonna be a real long day for me. We load in at ten a.m. I don't imagine I'll be home before midnight.

Gonna eat quick, and hit the sack. Hopefully I can get right to sleep. It doesn't feel like that's going to be much of an issue at this point though... I hope not. I'll be most miserable if I have to slog through the entire shift on short sleep.

did somebody say mcdonalds?

spent most of the day inside, still no xbox game in mail, so i'm just gonna be patient...I beat Empire at War as Empire. It kinda got repetitious..maybe the expansion is better.

I did some of the cardio workout, about an hour of that. watched some of revenge of the sith, and now i'm bored. I can't shake this headache, it's annoying me, I ate supper and it just won't go away!!!!!! *turns volume up louder*

I hate being so lonely all the time. Nobody cares. Maybe i'll go out for a hydroplane....nah, i don't need a ticket. -_-

Well... I did fall asleep nice and early last night. I also woke back up nice and early last night too.

Been awake since about 2:30.

This will be a good day.

On the plus side: My computer with the dicey, touchy hard-drive started right up this morning, and is reporting all normal. Go figure.

I was experiencing a similar problem last year, and eventually the drive was failing to spin up quickly enough to boot. I'd still have the drive replaced before you start having more frequent problems with it.

well my item did not arrive, so i'm leaving some negative feedback. piss me off. or i could just say item never came after 2 weeks and get a full refund.....man that pisses me off, going out in frostbitten temperatures and all i get in mail is the damn cable bill. perhaps the post office is holding out on me, maybe i should call and see? god now im just pissed off. then again, i ordered it the 12th, it was shipped the 14th...so should will be here tomorrow. unless the person decided to hit up the post office after hours, which is probably the case!

now i'll be bored half the day. yay.

Couldn't tell you. Long sleeves.
Keyboard player is cute and friendly though.

@Wildstar:
It's been like that for almost 2 years now. Still seems to run fine once booted. I was told that it's a pretty common issue with Dells of my vintage. There's really nothing wrong with the drive, it just reports a failure, but works fine.

However, I do already have a big, almost new drive to go in. I just need the couple of days to make sure I'm fully backed up, and to install the drive and the software environment again.

So far that hasn't happened lately.

drove my dad into town today for his stress test....we missed the place by a couple miles...got to test out my car's speed too....it's fast let's leave it at that. got home and opened up my cable bill to discover that i completely forgot to pay last month. oops! guess the uh...car insurance bill got in the way there! I'd pay it now, however...the money I would have payed it with was given to Kost Tire because the power converter on my car.....so i almost freaked out, about snapped my desk in half, then decided to get something to eat and then realized that I my income tax SHOULD be available next week, so i'll just use that. Hopefully I don't exceed the 5 days and suffer disconnection and extra $22.50 service fee, and whatever else they'd tack on for breaching a one-year contract...got like 4 bills next week then....insurance, rent, and TWO cable bills. resubscribed to galaxies out of boredom...why I did that, I don't know. -_-

Having a bitch of a time staying awake. Nothing for me to do during the show, so I'm just sitting at my desk importing CDs into iTunes.

I've only recognized one song of her's so far... the cowboy one... I guess I'm just not a fan. Her band is really good... but it just not doing it for me, I'm afraid.

Gonna be a real fun ride home. I can already see myself nodding... Crank the tunes and open the windows time.

Long weekend for me though... if I do somehow manage to make it home alive without falling asleep at the wheel. I plan on sleeping all of tomorrow away.

EDIT:

I'm home. I'm still alive. I think.

However: If I don't get some rest soon that might not be the case for much longer...

Been up about 23 hours straight. By the time I'm in bed and actually asleep I'll be able to call it a day. Literally.

That sucks.
But in the mood I'm currently in everything sucks. Sure as hell didn't like the show much... but I can't tell how much is exhaustion related, and how much was actual dislike for the concert.

I'm leaning less on exhaustion...

Bad concerts and little sleep are always bad, it makes the bad concert worse.

I, luckley, have not been to a bad concert.

Oh, I've done much, much longer, trust me.

When I was in college I did one stretch where I got less than 4 hours sleep from Thursday night into Friday, got up at 6am on Fri., left my house about 8, then stayed up going to classes, working, and doing recording sessions all day and night Fri, Sat, Sun,... until about 4am on Sunday (well, technically Monday) night, when I finally got home for the first time that weekend, grabbed a shower, changed my clothes, and slept until late Tuesday. And that was just before midterm exams too...

But that was my choice. Plus I was a lot younger... and probably in a little better shape.

Her band was really, really good last night. I would have loved to hear them in any other situation. I think I figured out what was bugging me:

2.) Her voice;

and:

1.) Her lyrics.

I realized last night that I just really don't like her singing voice. And most of her songs have those "Tori Amos"-ish true-confessional, therapy-couch type of lyrics that always make me squirm listening to them.

It was the lyrics more than anything, I think... I may not have minded her singing other type of material so much...

But what can anyone truly expect from a old-school metal-head/ prog-rocker/ jazz-fusion-noodlehead at a singer-songwriter-chick-rock concert anyway...

I'm listening to Sabbath (War Pigs) at this very moment... feels good.

well my game still hasn't arrived in the mail. so much for positive feedback, and post office is closed monday. i ordered on the 12th, confirmed shipping on the 14th, if i'm correct and he shipped it after post office stops sending mail that day, well it won't be here til tuesday. o well i'm just pissed off about it. on a brighter note, i recieve an 'official tax bill' in the mail for $5.....i owe $5....and it's per capita. So i'm gonna have a nice chat w/my tax collector about why it's that low compared to before, or i'll just be an ass and send in the $5 to the one i owe $90+ on. i don't know where they're gonna get that money out of me. I'm part-time status, supporting 50 kids, and am starving to death, what more do they want?? /sarcasm

Holy crap! The forum is reporting that there are 21 guests reading through the XWA Community Center Page at the moment! That simply can't be right! The most I've ever seen is maybe 4 or 5 at a time.

Wow!

I wonder what they are all finding to look at that's so interesting...

Good evening, lurkers!!!


I've had a day of near narcolepsy again. No caffeine. More withdrawal. So far the day has gone like this:

Get up.
Go to bathroom.
Have cup of decaf tea.
Check messages at computer.
Go back to bed.
Get up.
Go to bathroom.
Eat.
Check messages at computer.
Go back to bed.
Repeat...

The only other thing I attempted today was to sign up for a Myspace account... (yeah, I know what I said... ) but somehow I had a brain-fart and typed out a wrong e-mail address. (For some unknown reason I typed ".com" instead of ".net." Twice... I'm an idiot...)
It wasn't the wisest idea I've ever come up with... especially to attempt something like that when my brain is in such a mushy state. Yes, if ever you needed conformation: I am indeed a dumbass.

Now I can't do anything to the account... not even delete it and start again, since in order to delete it they send the conformation code to the existing e-mail address... same thing if you try to change the address. Swell.

I guess I could just start from scratch and just sign up for an all new one and just abandon that one... fill it full of false info that doesn't reflect me at all.

I guess I'll see if their support staff is any help. Otherwise I'll just give up on the whole idea. It was probably a serious mistake to begin with anyway...
