Go ed! I have often found when I got nothing to loose with a really nice girl, i can be a Casanova.

Tenjin is wanting to explore now... only problem he is still suffering a bit of separation anxiety and cries a lot... unless i hold him. He is also starting to lean into my caresses.

yeah so i had to go buy a pair of workpants...got some coffee...got home and went to go inside, spilled a little coffee on the pants. kind of sucked.

yeah don't go near the retail stores unless you're wearing a flak jacket, wearing sunglasses and go in with a 'all-seeing-eye' dog.

lol k_k, if i didn't know you were referring to a cat, your post looks a bit funny. thanks for making me laugh.

lol

survived work. of course, i worked at a generous time too...1-10, so i missed most of the b.s. lol

there was still a few good deals...$2 for some movies so i picked up v for vendetta, starsky and hutch, syriana, and domino. surprised that my 10% discount worked on it as well.

would've liked to have picked up the guitar hero 2/guitar hero aerosmith pack, but couldn't part with $50. lol

my copy of EndWar should be here on the 8th of december...i hope it comes sooner...

I'm starting to wonder just what the hell is going on in the universe...

The first girl I ever had a mad crush on (she was the sister of my best friend at the time...) just contacted me out of the blue on Myspace.

She's now apparently married with kids, and living in Washington state... but kinda weird, nonetheless...

But yeah: odd things keep happening to me all of a sudden, and I really have no idea what to make of it all.

I hate it when girls you have dated, or tried to date come back and tell you "The good news" that they are getting married to someone else.

Eh... I already knew she was married (though that info was actually for another one: she's currently on her 2nd...)
I'm just glad she seems to be doing alright. Her family situation was always kinda dysfunctional, if I remember correctly.

I haven't seen her in well over 20 years... so it's all water under the bridge at this point. I think I was at most maybe 15 or 16 when I saw her last... she was a year or 2 younger.

Trust me: That ship has sailed.

She did drive me totally crazy back then, though. More than half the reason I hung out with her brother was to be near her.

Their family moved up to Vermont when I was in high school... and that was the last I ever saw either of them. Lost touch with them all completely shortly thereafter.

Heard she had gotten married a couple of years later through a mutual friend.

I've no doubt... though she doesn't have pics on either the Myspace or Facebook of herself yet... just the kids.

She's in Bothell, WA. Is that anywhere near you?

Huh. Nice.

Well... getting in touch with her led to me getting in touch with a bunch of other people from that era in my life suddenly.

A few people that I had been in touch with off and on over the years since I have got online... and a couple I had almost totally forgotten all about.

I also learned that her brother kinda went off the deep end, and is apparently not doing so great... living as almost a recluse in the woods of Vermont. She says she hasn't spoken to him herself in almost 10 years.

Sad... but not entirely surprising. He was developing progressively strange habits and mannerisms when I knew him... Add a couple of decades to that...

Other than catching up with old school chums... I played a lot of XBox. Tried to finally finish Halo 2 (and got really close, but failed... maybe tomorrow...) and a couple of hours of co-op GOW2. We are kicking ass at that game. Might finish it tomorrow, too.

I almost wish we had started at a higher difficulty level... seems like it's going too quick.

Hmmm... finished Halo 2 today. (Finally! )

Sat through the credits, and realized I knew a couple of people who worked on it.

Specifically: The sound designer was a student who used to work with me. I went to his Facebook page and sure enough, he's a Bungie employee.

I also recognized a couple of the testers names... but that might just be coincidence.

Yo... I AM trying to hook a brother up... Me!

I'm trying to hook myself up. Hands off!

That's the one I drove home Thanksgiving night.
She lives 5 minutes away from me... and she just friended me on Facebook.

The one on the left is the girlfriend of the other guy in the picture... and the one in the middle is my buddy's wife.

Go ed.

Advice: Never bring her here.
Reason: I'll probably say something insensitive about the Japanese.

Work continues to drone on. Just bidding my time until I'm released from retail and into Field Services. God save not working in retail ever again.

I've been watching the Desert Bus for Hope webcam since I got home from work... After 72 hours of playing the world's most boring game they've raised almost $50,000 for Child's Play Charity, and they've still got at least (driving time increases with donations) another 48 hours of driving to go.

Shouldn't be a problem.

Actually... while it's a great fantasy: I am well enough aware of my history with the female of the species to know that I probably have less of a chance with her than an ice cube does on the surface of the sun... even if Hell were to suddenly freeze over, twice... and she and I woke up one day to learn we are the very last 2 people alive on planet Earth.



Still... now that I have ways to contact her, I guess attempt I'll see if she is the slightest bit receptive.

She tracked me down online, after all. Maybe that's a good sign...

Hmmm... No offense intended, dude... but:

While that was indeed a bad time filled with undoubtedly horrible atrocities, I'm wondering how long one can continue to be so emotional over events that ended decades before any of us were born?

But... on the other hand: here it is, 2008... and we still as a society often talk about the Nazis, the Civil War, and slavery as if those were all still fresh wounds.

I'm part Native American Indian... I guess I could have a few things to say about national occupation and genocidal atrocities if I chose to revisit history in that way.

Of course: I'm actually as, if not more, related to ancestors who are guilty of committing those same human-rights crimes... so I'm not exactly sure who I could be ever angry at... so it's a wash, I guess.


Anyway:

Last night - 5 back to back gospel bands. Yikes!

Started out loud... got progressively louder as the night went on. I foolishly didn't have any earplugs down at the board... and now I'm paying for it today with ears that are ringing.

Oh well...

I probably didn't need to hear those frequencies anymore, anyway.

Ed/Zargon; It's more of a thing that history kinda of washed over that, and the Koreans kinda got the short end of the stick in the post war era, and we never really look into what actually happened during those years. Yeah, the Japanese beat the Chinese into a bloody submission to the point even the Nazi's went "Holy S*&t that's messed up yo." but history sees one instance of pure brutality when there were several others.

Add the fact the Japanese were NEVER punished as bad as the Nazi's for pure political reasons, it's rather upsetting. Germany does in a very small way recognize that their leaders in that time were horrible human beings capable of horrible acts against human kind. Japanese textbooks gloss over World War II as a passing thought. According to Japanese textbooks, all that happened was two extremely powerful and large bombs got dropped on them after a 10 year long conflict that's largely glossed over.

I'm not that old, but national pride comes forth and when people speak of the atrocities that were commited during that era, we always forget what was going on in that part of the world. And the Japanese never ever seem to show any remorse.

although, i question the resentment, but i sorta understand.
on the flip side, there is still alot of Japanese still resenting those two little things that were 'specially delivered' to their people about 60 years ago before the end of WWII...

Also to those music fans who can remember or those who dont: band members to System of a Down had relatives to the Armenian Genocide 1915-17

It was brutal slave labour and abuse of Korean women as "playthings" (the nicest way I can put it) for Japanese Officers and Royalty.

I do actually understand too... but I also have always had trouble finding fault with someone alive today for something one of their ancestors might have done.

I mean: There are even things my own government is currently doing in my name that I simply don't approve of, and that I really don't want to have to take the credit for... let alone things that might have happened before I, or even my parents were born.

I'm just saying: you have every right to dislike the situation that happened, and choose to not forget... but is it fair to lay that on the heads of people living today that had nothing to do with it? Even the current government authorities for something their predecessors did?

And that whole "Institutional Apology" thing has always seemed symbolic, but useless. There's nothing that can be done for the people who lived through those horrors now... and the people that committed them are probably all long dead and gone, or so old that they are beyond caring what happens to them... so all you can really do is saddle a current generation that had nothing to do with it with the feeling that they should be guilty for the way their parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents may have thought or acted.

I dunno... It just feels to me that if we choose go back far enough, we will all have dirt and blood stains on our family trees... so what's to be the statute of limitations in these cases? 50 years? 100?

There are probably a LOT of history books that would have to be amended and re-written if we going to be 100% accurate and truthful. I suspect that what I think I know about American and European history has been altered from the unvarnished dirty truth.

I'm not saying what the Japanese are teaching their children is proper... but they certainly aren't the first to attempt to gloss-over and cover up a shameful period of the past,.. and sure won't be the last.

In this case, the accurate truth is actually out there, and I'm sure many, if not most well educated Japanese citizens are already aware of what happened, even if they don't ever talk about it.

But that's just how I personally feel.

I obviously don't have your national background, or one really like it,.. so perhaps I just can't emphasize to the extent I should.
