My wife has some grey hairs. She hates it. I don't have many at all, just in my beard.

Getting old...

Plus my babe is smoking even at 42.

I found a grey hair a few years back, before I had trimmed up my hair for NYC.

It was funny, it went from rey to my natural hair colour to grey and back..... i worked it out and it lined up with some very stressful points in my life.

I laughed, and promptly riped it out and burned it.

it's all good. i am a jedi. found out the real reason why she freaked out and went crazy that day.

anyways she fell in love with me, and i think i am falling in love with her. trying to take it slow. it feels good.

my friends at work keep pissing me off though, telling me i should just dump her cause of what she did.
i hate how my friends can't just be supportive of me and respect my decisions and ****.

at least i made my family supportive of my decisions.


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

wrong. it's looking to go the other way around where they don't want to hang out with me because i could give a **** about what they think about my relationship. don't think, just act and live, that is how i roll. the way i look at it, just live and don't think about the consequences, tomorrow could be your last day alive, don't sweat it.

I'm covered in grey hair... I don't *look* grey, but get in close and the frakin' things are everywhere. Things keep going like this and I'm gonna look like Richard Dean Anderson by the time I'm 30. I'm talkin' SG-1 R.D.A., not MacGyver R.D.A.

Not that I'm complaining, mind you... He looks good with salt 'n pepper.

I think...yes...this is the worst philosophy of life I have ever heard. But if you want to ignore the obvious consequences that will follow here, at least think about this one - if this relationship "works out", you are going to wind up a still relatively young man in your early 40s and your woman is going to be a senior citizen. Ew.

hahahah wow. Thinking of it that way, its messed up.

My cousin is now 31 married to a 45 year old, its pretty wierd........but the dude is older and they have little kids.


Your friends are giving sound advice dude, 'being in love with you' is not a good reason to destroy your stuff. There is no good reason to do what she did...

So when your relationship goes completely FUBAR, you'll have no one to hang out and commiserate with. Smart thinking.

257 final game w/ the front seven last night...W00T!

Just too bad I couldn't have two more games like that or we'd be talking personal best territory.

R15 Now on the other hand, I am 34, and the lady I have been talking to just turned 40. That isn't a huge difference. The only issue her age is for me, is her libido, and the risks if we would decided to have children.. but then that kind of discussion is best left to the 3rd or 4th date.

I do believe 10-Pin is Wildstar's game of choice.

Since 300 is a perfect score, 257 is pretty damn badass!

Nicely done.


Ran into my actress/ model friend on the subway again this morning, and actually got to talk to her for a while this time. I wasn't going to let that opportunity slip past twice in a row.

Not sure if I scored any points... but it was nice. Put me in a pretty good mood for the rest of the day.

And it's coming off a couple of long (and somewhat deep) exchanges sent online between us, as well. So the timing was nice.

I'm still not going to allow myself to build it up into anything epic in my head... but I'm suddenly not feeling quite as down about my prospects for the future.

Hopefully it's a feeling that will last...

Got a haircut, had a decent day at work, and now I'm officially on vacation!

Two days of relaxing with a case of beer and my Xbox... After that, it's 3 hours of driving, 20 minutes convincing the border guard that I am not an Islamic militant disguised as a white boy from the frozen wastelands of Atlantic Canada, and thus a threat to neither the great state of Maine nor the United States of America as a whole, another 4 hours of driving, and then 5 days of flinging myself down the frozen mountainsides of Sugarloaf/USA.

Get to find out how well my T-Mobile SIM cards work, too.

Gonna dig out the wax and give my skis a tune-up tomorrow, and find out what kind of foodstuffs I'm allowed to bring across the border.

With the exchange rate where it is, I can buy most stuff for a lot less than it would cost me to convert my money to USD to buy it there. When you're saying for a week and cooking (most of) your own meals, the more boxes of cheap Canadian Kraft Dinner I can smuggle across the border, the better.

Funny you mentioned the peanut butter... I actually bought a jar to bring with me yesterday, after discovering (after buying groceries in Skowhegan on my trip down last year that "Extra Creamy" apparently doesn't actually mean extra creamy down there. One week of torn bread was enough for me.

I'll say one thing for New England, though... Those Shipwreck fellers brew some might fine suds.


In other news, someone just fired what sounded like a .30-06 round somewhere northeast of my house... Slightly disturbing, considering that the only things in that direction are a golf course, an upper-middle class subdivision, 3 acres of dirt field, and a throughfare that connects this area to the downtown bridge. It's possible that it came from another direction and my ears are playing tricks on me, but it's also snowing like there's a factory clearout event in the snow store, so I have no idea why anybody in their right mind would be out hunting right now.

Ahh, the joys of living within spitting distance of the city limits.

Tonight I cleared Naxxramas in World of Warcraft with a bunch of random people. It's only special beause before you NEVER just threw 10 random people togeather and took on the raids.

Work was dull... but I got some webpage updates behind me.

Went out to eat with some friends last night. To Chick-Fil-A. I had never been there. It's a pretty far drive out of the city to get there, and I'm the only one with a car.

It was pretty good for fast food... but still...

Walked around the mall we were at for a whole afterwards. So many stores closed or closing. Scary.
Thousands of obnoxious teens milling around, not buying anything. (Note to self: Stay away from the mall on Friday nights from now on...)

Saw a $500 Millennium Falcon Lego kit.


I have never wanted anything as much as I want that right now.



Work today was canceled (bummer... because it was a show-fee day ) but I had to get up early to help someone move, again.

(But he's one of the guys who helped me put down my cellar floor, so I guess I owe him...)

Then I have to run all the errands I blew off last weekend when my plumbing went berserk. Then get back home and catch up on sleep. I'm so wiped out... and we are only getting busier at work for the next month. Ugh...

As I was carrying a 179 average going into the night, the 257 game qualified me for the USBC's 75 pins over average game award, which is my first award since returning to the game.

Moving sucks... even when it isn't yourself.

I hope this guy stays put for more than a couple of months this time, or I don't think I'm helping again.

Didn't much else done today. Too tired.

I really can't remember what it's like to not be tired all the time anymore. Blah.
