Boring day at work. One to be survived rather than enjoyed.

Taking tomorrow off, I think. Gonna try to finish the laundry I started last weekend. Do some shopping... maybe.

I have to work late on Saturday,.. and I'm gonna get dragged out to spend all day Sunday with the family, so tomorrow is my entire weekend.

R.T.:

I really need a back rub. But it's not likely to happen anytime soon. Not for free, anyway. I'm sure I could pay someone to do it for me... but that seems like it would really defeat the purpose.

R.T#2:

I haven't eaten at a Taco Bell in a really, really long time. That is probably not a bad thing.

yeah man...sometimes i get cravings for that chicken case-a-dee-a.....


woke up this morning, got my check...wasn't as much as I expected...oh well i guess. leaves me with a little over $100 (after regular bills) to save for the car...

I lost the ****ing title to my car, i dunno where the heck it is. Once I find that, i'm going to have it tractored out to the end of the driveway and put a for sale '$200' on it, and put a paper of what all stuff i did to it, and hopefully someone will haul it off...the back tires are less than a year old, brand new catalytic converter, and less than a year old muffler, so some junkyard person might find it a bargain. i dunno. just need to find the title just in case somebody is thinking of making it operational again...(unlikely it needs new transmission)


work was crazy today....started off slow and boring, lunch sucked because i had to stay in the store (no vehicle....) and so i went to subway and got ripped off...who spends more than $7 on a meal at subway? well, when you're that bored...

anyways, i get back from lunch and some guy wants me to make prints from 4 1 gigabyte compact flash cards....I start by telling him no, you gotta do them...he argues, and i end up giving in out of boredom and no customers in sight so why the hell not......

anyways he proceeds to tell me he wants doubles on each and 2 cds each as well...holy ****....guess how many prints total? 1,634....and the cds...14...all but 1 card had too many to fit onto 1 cd. that'll cost him about $345....plus tax. they were a ton of pictures from India too....how long did it take to do them all? well it took from approximately 5pm-8:55pm.....my dept manager is gonna freak cause we are almost running out of paper and with the stupid easter bunny pictures we may very well run out before fuji color processing ships us anymore. too bad.

tomorrow i work 5pm-9pm...that's going to be fun because I have saturday off. probably going to be cold out...i'll probably rent some movies and hang out w/my dad.

I have to start my laundry... but have absolutely ZERO motivation. Must... Force... Myself...

If it was a warmer day I'd try to get out and get some exercise... but it's close to freezing out there!

R.T.:

I sometimes wonder what breed Schrodinger's Cat was supposed to be? My money's on Siamese...

R.T. #2:

Every generation thinks it's the very first one to ever discover sex... despite all evidence to the contrary. After a while the obvious contradiction in that thinking become way too apparent to ignore, so this is usually modified to the belief that while past generations may have known about, and perhaps even had sex,.. ours is the very first in history to truly understand it, to be the first to truly enjoy it, and the only ones so far in history to really do it right... again, any and all evidence to the contrary willfully ignored.

Same thing goes for music. Every generation thinks that the music it grew up with is absolute musical perfection, and that music that came before was hopelessly old fashioned, corny, and dated... and all music that comes after is just aggressive noise.

Of course, since every generation feels this way, any attempts to convince their parents and children of these irrefutable facts only lead to conflict.

I dunno,.. but I find these types of narcissistic traits in human behaviour wonderfully charming and highly amusing.

well so far so boring of a day...was tired last night and fell asleep on the futon while watching national geographic channel. woke up at around 7:30 and made pancakes for breakfast...ran out of eggs real fast..only have 1 egg left. sux0rz. maybe i'll get some groceries before i come home from work tonight.

it's cold outside..less than 30 degrees. and there are flurries. just brilliant. o well, threw my running plan out the window.

played half life 2 for a while today, i'm stuck at this turret room, i enter the room seals and i get killed by like 5 ceiling turrets...sucks. so i backed out of the room and used the grav gun to trip it and well, locked myself out of the room! guess i'll have to do a part over. it is starting to get a little linear/repetitive, maybe i'll play some cs.

Got laundry almost done (haven't done jackets yet... may not get to that today.)

Spent most of the day napping between washes. And sending links of really bad music I've found online over the years to people.

Never left the house today... go me.

Thinking about getting the last load of the day out of the dryer, and fixing myself a cup of green tea or something. Then do a little reading before bed.

R.T.:

I really do go through a lot of slippers in a year.

work was boring...4 hours definitely goes by slower than 9 hours for some reason. We had easter bunny in...so it was unusually busy, and sold alot of cameras. my manager was pissed that i accepted that 4 memory card order from someone, guess i'll hear about it on monday...i wrote a note saying that it wouldn't happen again. heh.

before i came home, i bought some more groceries, gonna try out chocolate chip pancakes sometime...that should be good. if that turns out the way i think it will, im going to move up to blueberry. hell maybe someday if i live past 35, i'll open a bed and breakfast, maybe a internet cafe/breakfast place....that would be cool, open it up like out in the middle of nowhere.

I rented Hills Have Eyes.....that is a messed up movie, but i think they really did look like mutants...the one in the wheelchair is prolly gonna haunt my dreams. -_-

Don't really have any plans tomorrow.....might clean my room up, go for a bike ride, shoot some arrows, and perhaps i'll set up my old computer out here and network it so i don't have to wait for my sister to get off to use it. and later go to my parents' and bring in my dad's hunting blind...hopefully it's not destroyed.

i'm tired of the news.....i've been watching it for a few days, keeping up w/the hostage situation in iran, watched the live coverage of it while playing half life 2. it was pretty cool, though i can't stop wondering what would happen if, for instance, one of those smugglers (who the iranians were patrolling for i think?) captured and boarded one of the british ships and 'smuggled' them into iran, or killed them-making it look like Iran did it. that would suck.

Have to be in to work at 4. We have The Blind Boys Of Alabama tonight.

We've had them here before. It's always an easy show. A bunch of characters.

I still can't hear the name of the group without thinking about the old Cheech & Chong "Blind Melon Chitlin" routine and starting to giggle, though.

R.T.:

What was life like before the TV remote???!?? I know I lived through those days... but I just can't remember! I must have blocked those horrific traumatic memories out of my mind. Just imagine... having to stand up and move across the room to flip the channels, or change the volume. *Shudders*

R.T.#2:

About 20 posts or so before we totally eclipse the final post count of last year's thread... and we did it in less than 5 months. Not bad... not bad at all...

wow, didn't realize we hit 20 pages!

today was kinda random...cleaned up my room a bit, sorted my laundry that i did last week, yeah it takes me a week to put it all a way..pain in the ass trying to find room for all my clothes. still don't have a place for all my pj tops (t shirts that are too old to wear, so they get thrown in the pajama category)

I really should go through and get rid of most of my clothes that i could care less for...this way, when i am forced to go do laundry, it won't take as long.

after i got clothes sorted and put on the bed to be put away for later, i headed over to my parents' and me and my dad went to go check on the hunting blind...the snow pushed it down again, but it wasn't as bad as the first time i went out there. then we went to go get my dad a pair of shoes, and my grandma called and she was in the area, so i got to visit with her and her blind friend for an hour at mcdonalds. i got a crispy chicken blt and a medium cup of coffee. didnt really talk much cause my grandma is weird like that and doesn't really care about my mom, my sister, and myself.

anyways we go from there and onto the place that sells the shoes, and my dad got some new shoes, and then dropped my mom off at home depot so her and my sis could go to lowes to pay a bill or something and me and my dad went back home, and i put in the hills have eyes...my dad didnt care for it mainly cause the stupid rape scene and the f-bomb being dropped a few dozen times. i guess im kinda desensitized to the f-bomb, i used to care and get offended in movies but now its like whatever its just a word, and i guess the sex scenes well i dont care for that stuff being in movies but if its there i'll still watch the movie, tho im more hesitant to tell my parents about movies w/that in it. i dunno why.

oh on a very bright note.....I FOUND THE TITLE TO MY CAR!!!!!!!!!!!!! where was it? well, it was exactly where i left it, and i think i even looked there before. how odd!


HAPPY EASTER!!!

Got through the show. Pretty easy. This group will be coming back some time this fall, so I need to remember to save the scene in the board for tonight separately so I can recall it later. Save myself even that much time later.

Looks like I'll be spending most of the day tomorrow with the relatives. Oh well... at least the food will be good. I'll have to find a quiet spot to doze off at some point though.

Bleh, as always i get the mid shift on the boat.
were u/w, so cant really say where we're at *shrug*
didnt mind the rockiness of the water til about a couple of minutes ago, guess thats when the food really hit my system.
considering that mostly ive been eating was an apple and a bit of milk.
i just HAD to go for the pasta and the crappy steak.
now i feel kinda "Bleh."
back to my apple and milk for me. besides i could really lose the weight.

on other news on my time off i play C&C3:KE, and watch BBC:2040 (got that the other day before we left)

stupid snow.

scar how you like the navy?

i couldn't stand being on a boat or in water for more than a day. unless it's on a cruise ship in pleasant weather.

i gotta work today as well.....12-9. sucks that i dont get holiday pay for it. i hate walmart policy. i think i close with the 60+ year old lady tonight. that sucks, she can be so annoyingly bossy and humiliates me in front of customers and im too much of a man to go to a manager about it, and too much of a nice guy to tell her off.

I can't wait to get another vehicle.....want to get a van or jeep, something that i can put my bike in. then again those cost 2,000+ most of the time.

work is most likely going to be slow, easter sunday, snow on the roads...i doubt people will be running to walmart to get pictures developed or purchasing digital cameras. that'll be tomorrow. -_- at least i have tuesday and thursday off...

The kitchen is a mess and i dont feel like cleaning it. got my room cleaned and it is better..I'm considering dragging the other computer desk out here and setting up a LAN.

I finally got bored of half life 2....just no motivation to play video games. it doesnt help....i've been feeling like crap the whole week. no motivation to do anything, no friends to hang out with, my sister doesnt even hang out w/me anymore, and so im alone whenever i don't work. nobody ****ing cares.

Besides that load of crap, I have no vehicle to go anywhere besides work with...(when i'm borrowing the dad's truck or the sister's car) and it's always damn cold out anymore on my days off, (i hate spring i hate spring i hate spring and i hate spring) and there's snow on the ground today, so i don't have motivation to go outside and walk/run/bike....i just get sick of being stuck inside with nothing to do without feeling lonely 24/7.

Traffic was insane today. Took me an hour and a half to make the 40 minute drive down, and over 2 hours to get home.

The day was pretty good. Lots of food. Lots and lots of food.

Got to play a Wii for the first time. Didn't get much time on it though... with all the kids in the family there's only so many times you can hear "My turn! My turn!!!" before you just give up and hand over the remote. Still, it was fun. Maybe I'll get one. After a new PC and iPod... and a bunch of other things...

Gotta get up early for a dentist appointment. Crappy planning, on my part. I'm working the show tomorrow night. Promises to be a ordeal of truly epic proportions, too.

My shoulder hurts today. Might need some aspirin or Tylenol before bed.

the peanuts are to help you if your ears are bothered and pop....until i went on a plane i used to be terrified of popping ears and people saying chew gum, etc. they were all full of ****, plane rides rock!!!!

work was lame today....so lame we only did 10 rolls of film, i sold 1 camera, the second i walked into my department! i got all my maintenance done for the month, as well as all my weekly maintenance done, so tomorrow im just gonna slack!!!

i think i ate too much candy...maybe i'll walk it off tomorrow, looks like it is going to be a nice day....40 degrees, tho i work 12-9. i have tuesday and thursday off.

i'm still looking more into MOSs in the army, so far i like the information tech specialist, intelligence analyst, military police, and cavalry scout. cavalry scout sounds pretty cool...i think that was one of my drill sgt's MOS'.

I did 46 pushups today...31 pushups are getting easier and easier to do. my goal is still 60-75.

i dont want to work at walmart tomorrow. ugh.

I was totally exhausted when I got home last night. All I wanted to do during my extended drive home from the relatives last night was to doze off.

So what happened last night as soon as I laid down?

Couldn't be more WIDE-F'ING-AWAKE if I had injected coffee laced with cocaine straight into my brain stem.

Thank God... because if I had managed to get something close to a normal amount of rest, my life might actually go easily today. And clearly, that is simply not allowed in the cosmic scheme of things.

R.T.:

Just what the hell happened to Gwen Stefani? When exactly did she turn from the "Just A Girl" cutie to this current hip-hop skank persona? When my back was turned? Nobody ever asked me how I felt about it...

Dentist appointment didn't take long... and actually got back home at a reasonable time. I thought: "Hey! I have time before work... I think I'll take a nap!"

So I laid down... less than 10 minutes later, just as I was starting to doze off, the guys showed up to start working on my neighbor's lawn. 2 or 3 gas-powered leaf blowers and several trimmers all going at the same time, just outside my window.

No,.. my life isn't cursed... why do you ask?

Opening day at Fenway tomorrow afternoon. Oh, goodie.

Survived show.

One of these days I suspect that will not be the case. They'll find my lifeless carcass draped over the console after house lights come back up. If they even notice. A couple of days might go by before anyone suspects anything's wrong. And only then because of the rot...

R.T.:

Remember how excited you could get seeing a firetruck when you were a kid? Kids love firetrucks.

How come adults don't get that excited over them? Why exactly does that wear off? Still the same firetruck, after all...

Next time you are with people and happen to see a firetruck, do me a favor and point and jump up and down and say "Wow!"

(This is an actual thought that crossed my mind while laying in bed last night before I fell asleep. Actually shocked me awake in it's bizarreness. Should give you a real indication on how my mind actually works... or in this particular case, doesn't...):

I wonder what Ernest Hemingway would have made of "Dance Dance Revolution"? It's too bad he didn't live to see it.

overslept.....it looks to be a nice day, however the temperature is 32...i may go for my run, it only takes around an hour and its good for me...lol

rented Road to Guantanamo, that's a pretty good movie. also rented the hunted, it was a free rental so i picked it up even tho i saw it before, the knife fight is cool.

so today i have off and there's nothing to do to keep from being lonely.

my one friend at work said his mom or someone has a jeep and they're looking to sell it, tho i'd be making payments of like $230 a month....i can actually afford that, so i might do that....i dunno. wonder if it's automatic or manual transmission...jeeps are cool..

i dunno if i'm gonna pay that stupid per capita tax i got last year...i payed the one for this year and it's $85 LESS, so i think they ****ed up....my only concern is will it go against my credit if i fail to pay it? the one that i did pay, they didn't send me anything saying 'thank you' or whatever, any acknowledgment that they actually got it...that irks me. i got in a fight w/that collector over the phone and don't want to call her again. pisses me off that it is so much, otherwise i would have payed it..i can't just send in $90...that is a lot of money for nothing.

edit:

walked/ran my 4 miles....almost ran a full mile, hate when i run out of breath and get a dry mouth....at least i'm running more than 2 minutes at a time though...gotta remember to do intervals instead of trying to run it all at once.

Sleepwalked through work today. Trip in wasn't super horrible. I think I left early enough to avoid the worst of the stupidity. Trip home was kinda nasty.

Bed early tonight. Whoopie!

Hmmm... are me and 15 really the only ones participating in this thread these days?

C'mon kids... something must be happening in your lives right now. Especially if it's keeping you busy enough to not post here.
Let us know what it is!!! Let those of us with absolutely no life of our own live vicariously through your experiences!!! Take pity on us!!!

Seriously though... stop lurking for a post and say something. Let us all know you are still alive out there.

R.T.:

It's a real good thing I don't have the Force, because I'm sure I would be Sith and not Jedi. Not that I would become power-mad or use it to kill people (at least not at first...) but I'm positive that I would still abuse the hell out of those powers.

Imagine the practical jokes you could play. Imagine getting your own way all the time just by holding your thumb and fore-finger together in front of people. And don't even get me started on the "Jedi Mind-Trick" and all the possibilities for it when bargain-hunting... or especially on the dating scene!

yeah they must all be having plenty of fun. :\

I gotta work 10-7 today, that is going to suck...i just woke up and gotta eat breakfast. At least i get to use my sister's car today. i was gonna wake up early and go on a bike ride but i kinda slept in instead. my heels are sore from yesterday's running. i would hate to overdo it and get a stress fracture.

I need to get my fishing license sometime....though i might hold off til next week cause it's supposed to snow by the end of the week. -_- the only place where spring is actually nice is in Florida. Any farther north and it's raining/snowing and cold.

Well, you know my life is pretty boring, so I tend to only post when something exciting happens...

...like yesterday. Forgot to tell everyone that my brother won a supplemental ticket lottery and bought tickets for Opening Day @ Fenway. I joined him for the afternoon, and had a great time. To show how high expectations for him are here in Boston, Daisuke Matsuzaka, the newly-acquired Japanese star pitcher, got nearly as big an ovation from the crowd during the pre-game ceremony as Curt Schilling, David Ortiz, and Jonathan Papelbon, all established stars, did. Game was a blowout win for the Red Sox, but there was almost a brawl in the 8th inning when the Mariners' Jose Guillen advanced toward the mound and Red Sox reliever Brendan Donnelly after he struck out. Guillen was restrained by a few players and never did get close to Donnelly, but the benches and bullpens emptied. Donnelly then hit Mariners catcher Kenji Johjima with a pitch and got himself tossed from the game. I left to catch a train home right after the ejection.

Seems I've been going to these blowout wins, as the Patriots game I attended last year was also a blowout win for the locals. Maybe I should attend more games.

It's cool that you got to see the game on opening day! The fighter jet flyover went right over our office. That was also very cool.

We were listening to the game in my office. We left for home shortly after the events you described, and before the game ended, as well.

We walked down to the Symphony Hall stop (right past the R2-D2 mailbox, I may add ...) to beat the crowds on the Green Line. Nothing could help us much once we were on the Red Line though. Packed wall to wall.

the dental school 2 miles from me that initially rejected me has now made me an alternate for this year.

thats good!


I got the ring yesterday, ordered flowers this morning. Its going down tonight unless I completely puss out, which isn't going to happen!


I was at a funeral yesterday so proposing today seems a bit wierd, but oh well.

One of my good friends fathers was killed in a traffic accident Friday morning, by 2 guys running from the cops in a stolen truck.

he was an absolutely wonder person, great guy, raised 2 wonderful boys. Could do about anything with any tool he put his hands on and was always open to helping just about anybody. He will be sorely missed, taken at the youthful age of 46, and he seemed way younger.

that and being too busy all weekend to check online, is where I have been.

Good Luck, Zarg! Best wishes!

Sorry to hear about your friend's dad. That's a serious bummer.

And ditto the best wishes on the good news, Ike!
(Although it was hardly a surprise for me, as I read your Myspace blog this morning. I'm a subscriber. )

Spent the day re-arranging and updating computers around the building after my boss got his new laptop this morning... which freed up some newer machines to replace an old clunker we have been using down at the board.

"Bake" is a fun word, isn't it?
