Ying is on call this week/weekend so we have postponed meeting til the weekend after next.

Rumors at work are some people are going to be asked if they want to be temporarily laid off. That means going to the government for food stamps and a check. My worry if I do that is that I might not be called back to work, or the unemployment check will be too small

I pressed the wrong button and wiped out my post. yay.

went running this morning, followed by the gym....no food at all this morning cause i ate alot the night before...was pretty hungry afterwards, so headed over to my parents' and chilled out with my dad and watched burn notice, casino royale, and a new show that just premiered.

Got a female contact in Monticello, NY that I'm planning to meet sometime, just as friends, since she wants kids and a long term relationship, and I do not want kids. I don't think it'll hurt having a few female friends that live in areas I don't usually visit.


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.

Instead, I think I'll be spending the day doing laundry, running errands, and doing a bunch of little projects around the place that mom has been nagging me about for weeks or months.

I'm pretty sure my chances for "getting some" would be much, much greater if I just went to work.

I have no capital to take a road trip.

besides, I don' tknow how much Ed would like us around at this point. He seems a bit busy. ;_;

Maybe we'll plan it a bit better for next year, eh? If anything Ed could use us as free labor and he can get some stuff done.

It wouldn't be an impossible proposition right now... but yeah: I'm not sure exactly how much time I could really dedicate to playing host/ tour guide at this point.

Got most (tho not all...) of the stuff I needed to get done, done.

Shopping with mom: no good anymore.
Not going to do that again... though we found an office desk she likes better than the one I spent the day building earlier this week.

So... it looks like she's giving that one away, and buying the new one.

I gotta find her a hobby...

bored...can't wait til tuesday. school gets out monday so the high school track should be free. went out running this morning with my friend, about 4 miles. good stuff.


I quit the online dating thing.

I'm sick of messaging pretty girls that won't reply, even when I take the time to write an original message. so...I give up. I don't know if it's worth my time, when nobody replies or sends the first message. I'm just glad I didn't pay for that ****.

Once I get into the Army, there will be no turning back, so why should I even bother looking for something that could just end up breaking....

confidence and flirtatiousness worked pretty well for me. The key is to flirt enough to show interest and confidence but not so much that you look like a player.

I'm curious, do you get payed for it?


Work was alright today. Our department manager put us back on assigned maintenance since we were slacking off on it alot. I got the printer, which i 3> alot, has the most work to be done on it, so i can get away with **** and point at the book and be like 'look, i did tons of maintenance today, so shut your mouth!!!'

I'm going out with some friends tonight, camp councilors are up here (from europe and australia), so I'm hoping to meet some of them. Then I plan on coming home and playing Army of TWO with my coworker if he's still awake.

I completely deleted that profile i made on the dating site. I've considered doing the same with facebook and myspace, but i just can't. i got too many cool contacts on those. (since it's not really designed for dating)

Going to try cooking an artichoke tomorrow and eating it. Reading up on some CHinese customs and trying to learn a bit of the language to impress Ying.

To effectively channel bitter into seething hatred, something really needs to be so embittering (OMG, apparently that is a word) that you grow to loath what made you bitter, and turn the loathing into hate. It's a fairly easy process. I was embittered by Best Buy, and now loath the company's policy on internal hiring, and is growing to hate the process. Some say that I already hold this hatred.

I disagree, if I truly hated the process, there would be no Best Buy in Greece, NY.

just finished the co-op campaign of army of two. still have alot of weapons to unlock yet..

I put in Assassin's Creed earlier, relearned how to fight. I want to beat this game...not sure if I'll find all the flags for those achievements though...takes too much time.

Walked along the beach yesterday for a couple of hours. That was the highlight of the day.

Other than that, I just puttered around the house a bit. (Re-organized some drawers. Whoo!)

I was defending the shore from 3 families of Canadian Geese who were doing thier usual eat/crap. A neighbor tried using a firecracker, and it really didn't do much. So I pulled out my 100mw laser. They flew off shore after threatening them, and flashing them a few times.

Ying also called me. She wants to meet Saturday at a Sushi Bar. This will be date #6 for the year.

Went to the IMAX theatre yesterday to see night at the museum. Anyone been to an IMAX show? The screen is 60 tall by 80 wide with a 12,000W surround sound system. Transformers will be there later this month. It's in Seattle so it's not real convienent though.

I saw 300 at the IMAX. it was almost too much. The picture quality is OK, its still film, but its not all fuzy being blown up which is nice

the sound is by FAR the best part of it

I've never been to an IMAX theater....another thing to add to my list of things to do before the summer ends..

Shaved my hair, it was a long time coming. Last time i shaved my head was around November.
