So last night I was extremely motivated. I accomplished many things, including running a network cable to the tv room to set up my new 80 hour TiVo, breaking up with my girlfriend, taking apart my PS2 to fix it, and cleaning my apartment. The TiVo is awesome, and will be my new best friend. My PS2 now works like a champ, so come back over and watch the end of Lilo and Stitch, Ryan. Also, NHL2k1 now works again. We need to finish that damn season. Some day I'll have the money and go buy 2k3.

I found out today that the company will be taking a trip to boston on the 6th for a week long visit. I haven't looked at dates and stuff, but hopefully this won't conflict with any shows or anything. I guess I'll need to do laundry so I have clean, nice clothes to take with me. I need to get a haircut, as well. Chad told me today that I look like Wolverine, which I guess is kinda coo. As a side note, points to What's the world coming to?

So I guess I should tell you what I got for Christmas, eh? Well, obviously, I got a TiVo. I also got a bunch of other weird stuff, including an electric snow cone maker, a deep fryer, a black cashmere sweather, a few books, Lilo and Stitch DVD, a Grumpy Bear care bear, and blah blah blah. Oh, and Ryan got me Willy Wonka and Gross Point Blank on DVD. Yay for Ryan.

As for everyone else, I got my mom a DVD player, my sister a George Foreman Grill, Uncle Ken a "Drill Doctor" thing that sharpens drill bits, Ryan a hardback copy of The Bell Jar and a Warcraft III Strategy Guide. Uh, I know I bought some other stuff, but I haven't seen some people that I bought things for. I think this is the first Christmas that I've actually gone into debt.

Oh, I forgot to mention on here yet... I bought a new car. `98 Accord Coupe EX. Black, Black interior, totally pimp. Yeah. I'm broke. I'll get around to taking pictures eventually, I spose.

I left the house at 10am, and just got home. I went to work, went to test drive cars, and then went to my parents, where whod81 joined me and my family for birthdaystuff.

After that, off to Sean's, and then Lord Of The Rings. whatever...

ryan: "That fat kid looks like one of the kids from the goonies..."

I just got home to find a bouqet of pink roses waiting in my mailbox, along with some candy (receipt included; it seems I didn't get all the candy that was purchased) a birthday card that includes horrible grammar and the postscript "you have very beautiful eyes!!", and a smiths patch. Obviously, my 16 year old stalker doesn't know me very well...

I got some neat toys from my family tho. A mini R/C car from uncle ken, 2 harry potter lego sets from my sister (who made a point of repeating at least thrice that my two year old niece picked them out herself. right), and a paper-shredder+pencil-sharpener combo thing from my mom. I think the R/C car is my favoritest, followed by the shredder, which I would have to say is one of the best combinations in the world. Oh, and ryan got me a big bottle of grey goose. crazy, man...

17:14 - An Open Letter To My Friends Page
Dear Friends Page,

I'm really getting tired of your shit. Every day, usually multiple times throughout, I click my Bookmarks link in Mozilla in hopes that you will have something entertaining, insightful, or even relatively un-annoying to read that will help me pass the time while I am procrastinating my work. However, I am almost consistently disappointed, with few exceptions, and am currently considering your dismissal from the position of 4th link to the right on my Bookmarks bar. I am not quite yet to the point of removing your parenting user from LiveJournal, but I fear the end is near. If you wish to continue our relationship, you may want to consider informing your occupants that you wish them to stop whining, bitching, and moaning about things that they would have the uppermost control over if they would just take a second to stop complaining and do something about their problems for once. Keep in mind that some people do have actual issues that they are working on, and give them credit for such things, but we cannot withstand dwelling on certain subjects that are mere instruments of self-pity devised to provide drama and masochistic entertainment in otherwise bland and uninteresting lives. I will also be removing your parent user from all currently involved communities, as they just provide more clutter than content. I'm sure you, as well as I, were tired of seeing pictures of people's cats, and pixilated shots of cam-whore tits. As you also make the added effort of displaying my personal entries, I will make a great effort to do my part and not post anything without great consideration, if at all. I hope that you are able to work out all of your personal issues, and understand that I do appreciate you, as useless and agitating as you may be. If at any time you feel that you are unable to perform your duties as a Friends Page, I will fully understand. I'm sure it's not easy to have your entire existence plagued with such misery and senseless crap. I wish you all the luck in the world, and my God have mercy on your soul.


current mood: better now

My boss just informed me that by Wednesday I must complete a self-evalution. What's a nice professional phrase for "slackass bastard"?

so much to do... so much to do...

Everyone HAS to go look at tairee's journal... I dunno who the hell this kid is, but look REALLY HARD at his background. Recognize anyone?

I'm late for work :(

(comment on this)

02:48 - everywhere there's lots of piggies, living piggy lives.
I don't know why I'm still awake, but I am. Not that it matters. I've been waking up every 2 hour again, and being wide awake. I almost went to work at 7am today just because I was bored. I should just start drinking every night again. Sleeping was much easier then.

Mow's laying on my chest right now, as I lay in my usual position on the couch with my laptop, watching TV. He's doing ok, for everyone who's been asking. He still isn't walking so great, and falls a lot, but he's still walking around and purrs when I pet him. These, to me, are good thing. I don't want to let it go too long tho, and I'm worried about the fact that I have to make that decision. Hopefully, when the time comes, I'll just know. For now, I'm just going to love him as much as possible.

As for everything else... who knows. I feel like there's no real point in doing anything right now, mostly because of the whole Boston situation. I stopped cleaning my house, and cooking myself dinner, and I haven't even picked up all of my clothes from my parents house. I don't even feel like buying anything, which is one of the things I enjoy the most. Plus, I'm trying not to spend money just in case. I guess the band is pretty much done with. Meh. I don't really see anyone anymore. Meh. I don't leave the house. Snow. Meh. But man there's some great movies on. Last night I watched Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and tonight I watched Dude, Where's My Car which I'm convinced is the best movie ever. I also watched Newsies again. And now, How fitting.

Tomorrow night (tonight) is the Teen Idols show. I think I'm supposed to be excited, right? Fuck it.

I had something else to say, but I forgot. whatever.

22:01 - in case you didn't know...
my birthday is in a couple weeks. not the I expect anyone to buy me anything, but if you do, buy me something I want.

in other news: everything's shitty and annoying, so I've been drowning myself in Kingdom Hearts, which is the bestest and most addictive game I've played since starcraft.

but Newsies in on, so it can't be all bad. *scoff*
