The solution to this dilemma is the solution to everything:

High explosives. And lots of 'em.

had great time tonight...went out with friends to see 'uncle kracker' playing at hardware bar in scranton...well my one friend didnt have proper attire (was wearing shorts and so the bouncer didnt let him in) so me and him went to this other club...the club i usually get annihilated in. it was great! i got some chick's number, first time that has happened. right after though there was this HUGE brawl. managed to escape. my one friend got shot in the shin at the other place where uncle kracker was performing, he's fine though.....

dont know why people have to ****ing fight like that. i'm glad im not like that when i get drunk. i'm a happy drunk.

Shot?

Damn. Sounds like some high-class establishments there...

Work was E-Z. Just recalled all the board settings from when the band played there in October and I was pretty much done for the day.

I met up with M. after work. She was attending yet another birthday party, partly thrown in her honor (the seventh one this month so far...) as well as a couple of other people with birthdays in the last couple of weeks.

It was right down the street from where I work, so I figured I'd pick her up when I got done, and as the party was winding down, say hello to some people, then drive us both home.

Didn't walk through my door until after 3:30. The party lasted a bit longer than expected.

Gonna be tired today.

about 90% moved out of my apartment. I am the worst procrastinator. I got about 3 trash bags full of clothing to move, trash a mattress, trash a futon. and then clean.

Kinda sad when you can enclose all of your stuff into a 5x10x8 storage shed not feeling to happy right now

went for a run outside at lake scranton. I did pretty good, only had to stop once cause the one bridge was icy and had pedestrians blocking me.

I did, but it didn't work. I wound up just going into the office. But thankfully, while I was there I fixed the problem and it now works. The problem...you can't connect to a computer that is asleep. Now, no one ever told me anything about that. I would think that it would be useful to allow your computer to go to sleep and then wake up when someone tries to connect to it. But I guess that's just too much trouble. Anyway, I just set it to never go to sleep and now it works fine. Thanks for mentioning that in all your tutorials, Internet, you jackass.

yeah well you can, but then it will never go to sleep if you let the LAN card wake it up, because there is always traffic

High 40's here today and yesterday.

Making me feel lousy, actually... Too sudden change in weather + Staying out late partying = The Blahs.

Trying to prepare mentally for tonight's show: A fund-raising tribute to Haiti.

A well-intentioned, but giant Cluster-****-tastrophy.

considering forcing myself into a coma for 2 weeks. my parents are the best at finding ways to make me want to commit suicide 3 times over. #1. moving my bed(which is a couch) on me closer to the ****ing tv and facing another direction than im used to sleeping, #2. wanting me to call off work to help move (i'll lose my job if i do that), and #3. just not being at all considerate of my sleep schedule. Going to bed at 9/10pm is impossible without being constnatly awaken by a loud tv or loud talking

hopefully in the new place were moving to ill not be disturbed at all when trying to sleep, since i'll have my own room.

oh yeah....i've been kicking ass in my dreams for once, so maybe that's a good sign. but now that my bed is rearranged i'll be having sleep paralysis and hideous nightmares again.

oh yeah and **** this snow. damn it i want to ****ing pass the ****ing pt test and get the **** out of this ****ing state already. pa=fail.

Another day, another cluster-****-tastrophy.

Last night was... painful. And it was only the set-up/ soundcheck/ rehearsal for tonight.

Ugh.

it's the best demotivator poster out there. im gonna print it off, frame it and hang it in my new room after i move. i've all but given up on looking for anything serious. none of the girls i have met in my area so far have shown any interesting qualities other than being physically attractive, it might be different if they showed any interest in me, but that's never the case. It's probably for the better. Every girl I've shown interest in has rejected me so far. so screw it.

I had my five year last September. All I got was a 10-second round of applause at the weekly company meeting. Plus an extra week vacation, which is pretty sweet.

worked sucked today and it was all my fault.

Started out the day picking a (Truck) load of bulk butter to be stickered (all 750 cases). When i lowered my forks too soon and caused the 3,000 pound pallet to dump... from 25 feet up. about 6 cases shattered like blocks of ice. Since it was going to be used for "Concentrated milk fat" i was told to stuff what i could back into the boxes and re stack the pallet. in a freezer that was -5 below. During the process i wasn't looking where i was going and dumped another pallet (thank fully this was on the ground) . When i got the Bad pallet all stacked up I was trying to move it so I could wrap the pallet and one "side" of about 15 cases fell down... which I had to restack.. again. Ended up taking 4 hours to do this.

Not happy. Was not in a good mood. People avoided me

Kind of a bad night for me bowling (bad enough to fall under my AVG - 1), but one of my teammates had a banner night: he not only had his first game over 200 (a 213), but it was his first clean game, as well. The performance helped us take 3/4 on the night.
