i called the number, got answering machine. I left a message, said i was at work and gave my cell #. at least it was the right number i called. i called again on my 15 minute break, and didn't get an answer, didn't leave a message that time.

either way, looking forward to thursday night. it better not ****ing snow either.

Got another 6 inches of snow here overnight.

Just spent the last hour cleaning up (again! ) so that mom could get out and go to work.

I think the plow guy that does our street has a vendetta against us... the street is plowed on both sides all the way up and down, except for right in front of my house, where only the opposite side is. Which means I have to shovel out into the middle of the road just to clear my driveway.

This has happened every storm this year. The first couple of times I overlooked it, but now it seems like it has to be deliberate.

I really have no idea why... I don't think I even KNOW a plow operator in this city... but I'm going to have to report it. It's too much of an unnecessary pain-in-the-ass to bother putting up with any longer.

Well my Friday night went as exactly as planned.

saturday my boys BB team got trounced. Think it was 38-14. From what one of our moms said this team is a hand picked group. That makes me feel a little better..

Sunday was church, then watched some football, then a family bike ride then to visit my uncle in a retirement home. Then home and it was movie night but since it was so late we watched on of the jedi knight cartoons on our DVR the kids record.

Now it's back at work..

2 things to do this week:

1. - Get back to IKEA and buy a couple more boxes of tiles as spares, and some flashing to use as trim around the walls to cover rough spots.

2. - Get to Circuit City and see if I can't get a decent HD-TV for the cellar... and maybe a DVD player with HDMI out.

yay for hdtvssssss!!!1111

watched 24. i love that show. i also watched clone wars...one episode of it. can't really get all 'omg' about it cause i've missed like 10-12 episodes already. i'll get the box set on dvd.

the girl seems kind of cool, at least what i could tell from the 5 minute phone conversation. My friends think i'm insane for letting my one friend set me up like that. I don't care, cause i got nothing to lose. From what my coworker said, she's a little older than me, has her own place too. so that's definitely a plus.

Yeah... but if the price is right, just about anything would be an improvement over moving the 100+ lbs lo-def CRT TV I was going to set up down there.

good luck, scar!.

I just played some Fable II....decided to marry the jeweler my character kept screwing....success on having a baby on the 1st marital sex. the baby is evil. it loves when i do the 'evil laugh' expression. think when it grows up i'll show it the true nature of the dark side by sacrificing it to the temple of shadows......nah...i couldn't do that. or could i???? I was overly generous to my family and put a daily allowance of....2000 gold. this made the wife VERY HAPPY, as her expectation was like 175 gold. haha. she didn't appreciate my character flirting with another woman, and she threatened to leave me. i decided to be nice and give her some chocolate...lol

i'm gonna get some sleep...gonna wake up early and clean out my car.

Things are crazy down here near D.C. because of the inauguration. Lots of people took off work to go see it, and they are putting it up on the big projector in the media room for us to watch at work. Do I care? Absolutely not.

They are doing the same here.

I actually do care this time,.. but I figure I can catch all the highlights on the news for a month or 2 to come.

I honestly don't care to ever hear which Inauguration was warmest or coldest ever again in my lifetime, however. God bless the 24-hour news cycle.

im at work with a rare opportunity to use the intertubes. Almost half of the people in the warehouse took off today or left early (5 people) because we started the day with 8 outbounds (~40,000 lbs. Truck loads), and 3 inbound loads. Now with 9 working hours left today. we are waiting for 4 outbounds and one inbound. 3 of the outbounds are not going to show up til after 6pm.

bored bored bored

I just read the inaguration speech by Obama... really nice speech... likely one of the best.

and i would like to say. NAH-NAH NAH NAH NAH-NAH NAH NAH HEY-EY-EY GOOD BYE!

Now that that's over with, how long before everyone realizes that Obama will change absolutely nothing (for the better) and once again resume hating the government and America in general? I give it less than a year.

yeah...i'm glad we got a new president, but doubtful of the changes he promises.

went on my date at work today haha. she's pretty hot. i didn't ask how old she was, but thinking late 20's, early 30s. she has a masters degree in counseling and is a certified yoga instructor. got another date w/her on thursday. i'll have to get a pic of her somehow for all you 'pics or it didnt happen' peoples.

nice way to start off year 25.

I'm waiting to see how he does.

yes, his plan does include raising the national debt into the multi trilion dollar range. But Roosevelt did something similar and also retooled the United States for a war time economy.

This guy has to do something similar but instead of war production has to move us to new industries that can carry us forward into the 21st century, something that OTHER administrations SHOULD HAVE DONE, but never did due to a complete lack of foresight, special interest groups, and preoccupation with other issues.

Yesterday: Dull day at work,.. though I did catch up on a lot of paperwork that's needed to be done for a long while.

Fell asleep early last night.

Why is it that I have less energy and am more exhausted after some time off? Isn't supposed to be the other way around?

are you kidding?

half of the current issues everyone is blaming on GW were inherited.

Hell, he actually tried to put some controls in place a few years ago warning of a meltdown and congress said F that it might hurt the stock market

the housing bubble? Clinton did that.

9/11? you cant seriously call that his fault or really say he did it.

so yes, thats half, the patriot act and iraq, his fault.

financial woes....not his.

hes already started off poorly with his huge worhtless bail out.

got back into EndWar. I almost succeeded in taking over Paris, failed. the 2nd try was fun, i had like 6 infantry units, threw them into transports and hauled ass to quickly secure the uplinks, ignoring all their defensive units. i was successful, but i still had to dispatch the units...that resulted in an epic fail...fortunately all my units had good enough defense for an effective evacuation. definitely exciting.
