work was slow today. ONE roll of film developed. though, we made up for it in camera sales. we sold about 12 of them.

i'm playing double agent right now. got past the decrypted email part...was forced to consult gamefaqs.com for that, there was no trick to it, just all guesswork, imo. i let the cruise ship blow up, though i had the option to jam the frequency or let someone else take the blame for it. this game is pretty fun.

The show last night was easier than some I've worked lately... insofar as it was only 6 bands back to back...

With a few possible exceptions, the music was mostly painful to me. More crap indie rock.

Y'know what I mean: Slouchy kids clad in ugly second-hand store clothes, slashing away at barre-chords for 4 minutes on a cheap Strat or Tele copy with too much fuzztone into an Fender amp with the treble turned up to 12, howling thier navel-gazing lyrics incomprehensibly into the nearest mic, while the bassist and drummer pound away on the most basic beat imaginable. No real rhythmic or harmonic variation for the entire song. No memorable instrumental hooks or riffs. No solos, except for the occasional blast of dissonant noise between verses (which I'm never sure is completely intentional...)

When did rock get so goddamn lazy? Or has it always been this way, and I've been to wrapped up in myself to notice?

I don't think I'm being a snob. I'm certainly not asking everyone who ever hits the stage to be a flat-out virtuoso... but try to put a tiny bit of effort into it, willya? There are so many other interesting things you can do with a guitar than just strumming an 8th note picking pattern on regular old major and minor-triad open position or 6 string barre chords!

Arrrggghhh!

[/end rant]

Water in my cellar. ****.

It's nowhere near as bad as I've ever seen it, and the side of the cellar where the work was done is dry, however... so I am happy about that.

But it still sucks that I'm not completely done with that job yet. Granted: yesterday had an insane amount of water falling from the sky. We had drips from the ceiling at work all night too. (Right next to the brand-new $120K P.A. speaker hang... which also didn't make me very happy...)

Got less than 6 hours sleep again. Yay.

Valentine's Day. Hmmm... gotta remember to wish my dad happy birthday today. He's 78 this year.

Other than that, I imagine I might just be a bit on the touchy/ grouchy side all day. Lack of sleep... water in the cellar... crappy night at work... still completely free from any possible romantic prospects...

What's not to love about life today, I ask you?

(Actually... please don't answer that.)

*Sigh*

Speaking of cute girls, my daughter had a operation this Monday. Ears, nose and tonsils. She heard like only 25% on her left and 60% on the right ear. I stayed with her at the clinic and it was the first night I ever stayed at some hospital (except after my birth :P)

However, all is well and she is recovering good.

This is her, in summer 2007, aged 4 and a half

Well... I am actually happy for everybody. I genuinely am.

I kinda wish I was part of the club this year... but it was apparently not to be.

Maybe next...

I just have to keep plugging away at it, I guess.

Well... I just tried my hand at XBox. Did poorly. Gave up.

I should call my dad before it gets too late.

Work was slow. Boring. Re-set the monitor EQ slightly. Had been bothering me for a while. That's something I guess...

But for the most part: Nothing day, all around.
Yay.

Almost over though. That's something I guess...

You know...this started out as such a good day, what with the lady friend and all... And it was. That was all good.

But...it turns out my sister really IS pregnant. Apparently, she and her jackass boyfriend are getting married as a result. So I guess I can hold off on the ass beating for now. But only for now. I'll be watching him.

Aww, c'mon... just a little beating?
It will make the day even all that much better!

Say what: We'll come down there and do it for you.

That's an interesting turn of events.
Are we all invited to the wedding?

I hope not... sounds like a good one to crash.

Keyan,

there are worse things in the world that could happen. I realize, being Catholic and all, that being prego out of wedlock is a no-no, but what is done is done. I'm sure you will be a supportive brother and all that because she will need the support.

However, I am not wild about the idea of those two getting married just because she got pregnant. Marriage should not be done to "save face". You know as well as I do that it is a sacrament. It is difficult enough as it is without adding the stress of what is basically a shotgun wedding.

Make sure your sister knows what she is doing. I think it would be wise of her even to wait until the baby is born.

Of course she doesn't know what she's doing - she's an idiot. It's not just that she shouldn't be pregnant for moral reasons (which she shouldn't). It's the practical fact that she can't even take care of herself, much less someone else, much less someone else who is totally helpless. She is the laziest person I have ever known. She is a complete slob. She is a liar to the core. She doesn't care about anyone except herself, and she doesn't even seem to care about herself that much.

I disagree that marriage is not the automatic solution here. It is. Not to "save face," but because children have the right to be born to parents that love one another and live together for the nurturing of the child. And that is exactly what is going to heppen. Or else.

if she and her boyfriend are not meant for each other, then it isn't right to force it. The divorce rate is way too high as it is, and it will be worse for the child to go through a divorce.

Trust me, I know from experience. I got a girl pregnant, an ex of mine, and everyone kept saying i should marry her, especially since we had been thinking about it before. But it would have been totally wrong of me to do that since I knew that I didn't truly love her and I couldn't stand to live with her. My family pressured me over and over again, but I knew it wasn't the right thing to do.

YOU need to set aside your anger and be a voice of reason and think about what is going to TRULY be best for this baby and your sister. She's going to be hormonal and not be able to think straight, and her boyfriend is probably not the sharpest knife in the drawer. This baby may be exactly what she needs to start thinking about something other than herself and turn her life around. Stop thinking like a man with a baseball bat in his hands and start thinking like someone holding a newborn baby.

Hmmm... seems to me if that state was truly enforceable, the world would be an unrecognizably different place.

I don't foresee great things coming from this marriage, thanks to the characters involved and the situation they have crafted for themselves... but then I honestly hope that I am wrong, for the sakes of all involved.

Experience tells me otherwise, though.

"Meant for each other?" This isn't a Disney musical, this is real life. True love is an act of will, and nothing else. It is not a feeling, and it is not "destiny." The child has a right to both his parents, and it would be wrong to deprive him of that. If they can't live together they should have thought of that before they started, well...living together. The time for decisions is over. The decision has been made. It's time to man up and get the job done.

hey, if he ditches her after the baby drops out of the womb, hunt him down and you know what to do.

the divorce rate is so high because of the no-fault divorce.

there are several other reasons but that has to do with social and economics. the big ones if the one above.

I don't know about anyone else, but it seems to me that "saving yourself for marriage" is a thing of the past and not a single person cares about it anymore.. in fact it can more likely be a detriment

So you think you can just marry anyone and if you choose really really hard, you'll be able to love this person despite everything? C'mon, Keyan. Only God is capable of that kind of love. Do you think her boyfriend is capable of loving in that manner? Do you think he is capable of looking at it as objectively as you are?

"A child has a right to both of its parents." That's a nice sentiment and all that, but what if one parent dies? Or he's an abusive addict? Or just simply isn't mature enough to handle raising a child and would be more harm than good?

Do you think it is healthy for a child to have two parents who fight all the time but are married simply because he knocked her up? Better to not marry at all. Does this mean he hits the road and has no involvement in the baby's life? Not unless necessary.

A mistake has been made in living together, having sex, getting pregnant. However, getting married out of obligation is an affront to the sacrament of marriage. I would go so far as to call it sacrilegious. No one says it has to be mushy gushy lovey dovey stuff. When two people know it is real love, they know. I know from experience a real, true test of two peoples' love for each other is if they have a baby together. If they are able to demonstrate the maturity to care for the baby and each other, then I think they should get married. Not as a knee-jerk reaction to the fact that she is carrying a baby.

Yes, I think human beings are entirely capable of that kind of love. I think we are obligated to have that kind of love. Anyway, what I think doesn't really matter. They said they were getting married. I had nothing to do with it. If the priest in charge of their marriage prep thinks it's a bad idea, he won't marry them.

Keyan, stop and think for a second. You've gone on and on about how your sister is immature and all that. She's cohabitating and she went and got herself knocked up. Do you think that she is demonstrating the maturity level needed to enter into a marriage? Do you think her boyfriend is mature enough to handle it? I'm sure the answer to both is No. If that is the case, why do you think it is suddenly so necessary for two immature people to enter into a PERMANENT bond? Part of the reason the divorce rate is so high is (in addition to no fault divorce) the fact that people are simply not prepared for it or don't really know what it is about. Sounds like they are going to go through the proper marriage prep through the church. That is great. It still doesn't fully prepare you.

One of the first questions asked at a wedding is "have you come here freely and without reservation to enter into the bond of matrimony" or something along those lines. if you're marrying because the woman got pregnant, how can you truly answer that question yes, unless your intent was to eventually get married before you knocked her up?

Don't leave this all on the priest, Keyan. You need to take on some responsibility as a brother and talk to your sister. sounds like you don't get along well, but you need to show her some support and make sure she is doing this for the right reasons. Don't be such a black-and-white thinker. There's a lot at stake here and shades turn quite gray when you're dealing with a new life.

Maybe it was. She never tells me anything. She never returns my phone calls or talks to me except when she wants something, and she never listens to anyone. She does whatever she wants, regardless of how stupid it obviously is. But in this case, I think she is doing the right thing for once.

its over rated, so dont worry about it.

I am getting married this year, and I sometimes doubt getting married EVER is a good idea. There are enough obligations in life without adding someone elses to that heap......

Keyan, I think Ike is right with what he says. I mean I do not know your sister, and Ikhnaton doesn't know her too. But you do know her, and getting married just because of pregnancy *is* in fact not the best idea on that world. Better a child has no father at all than a bad father just for the sake of being able to say "we bound that guy to responsibility". The most important thing is a supportive family and friends not a "husband" who probably doesn't even want to go that road. And by supportive family I also mean parents and siblings who rather see a happy daughter and grandchild instead of a crying married one.
