It’s been a busy day. Woke up, with Lindsay. She spent the night, in an innocent way. FYI, we’ve been around eachother quite a bit over a few weeks without any inter-active melt-downs. We’ve had fun times, and I don’t just mean physically. She complained about how I was venting about her earlier on in my live journal, but I never say anything good. So there you have it, something a little more personal than I usually like to give 😉
Anyway, we went to breakfast with Justin and Sara. I had this great omlette. So good. Yummy. Then we took Lindsay back to the appartment so she could take her car back home… she had to work. The rest of us went in search of the place Justin’s band, Three Day GirlFriend, was going to play. It’s this little saloon in portland near burnside. Anyway, Justin wasn’t feeling so hot, so I dropped them off back at their hotel and went home to crash myself.
A couple of hours later Jessica and Luc came over for a little get-together. We had yummy ribs and watched Patch Adams. I love that movie. After dinner I went back to the saloon where Justin and the band were waiting to set up. I sat around and talked to Sara while Justin exerted nervous energy on the Astroids machine and a beer. They finally set up, sound tested and played.
Three Day GirlFriend is a metal like band… sort of… don’t know how to classify them. It consists of Justin: uber drummer, Josh: Vocals, Dan: Guitar 1, Carrey: Guitar 2, and P..aul?: Bass. I always have troubles remembering his name because I don’t talk to him much. Anyway, they sounded pretty good. I was a little disapointed though because the sound wasn’t mixed right(I think). I wasn’t able to hear the details in the guitar or bass parts. Most of the time it just hit you as a wall of chorded noise changing in sink. Some of their songs have rad, distinked riffs; but I could barely pick them out this time around. I also couldn’t really understand what Josh was singing… but I guess that’s normal.
Anyway, now my ears are ringing like mad, I’m tired, I’m going to bed. Peace out everybody.
Justin is coming up today. He’s my best friend back from high school days in Medford. His band is playing a show in Portland at Ash Street Saloon. Friends need to turn 21 so they can come. Anyway, it’s always a blast when Justin and I get together. It’s like we just feed off each others crazy, wierd vibe. He’s sorta like me, plays ignorent most of the time because it’s a hella more fun than being mister smarty. Just like high school. w00t!
Umm… OH! I thought of the coolest idea for a case last night. Lindsay and I were talking about designing her a case a couple nights back. Didn’t think anything of it, but she seems all excited. Last night I was feeling bored with my case so I just took a note card and drew a motherboard on it, since that’s practicly what any case would be built around. I was looking at it… visualising, then I turned it on its side. Woah. That would be tight! You could put cords anywhere on the case. I’m still thinking about it a little now and then… i think I’m a genious tho.
P.S. I’m hungry
P.P.S.S. I’m going to go eat then fly to work in my new jet-pack.
Yep. That’s what it’s been. Just where have I been exactly? Well, I went to a FedEx place to send a bad sick of RAM and a good stick of RAM in order to get aCorsair XMS TwinPack so I can have a happy gig. teeheehee. Having a life time warrenty is a good thing.
Next I went to the bank to get quarters. Then I went to comcast to pay my cable bill. Turns out I payed for this month and next month… that cost a pretty penny. Then it was back home to sort the laundry and put it in the washer. Then get a network cable from the living room to my room. I also placed hooks for running cable back to my moms room too. I didn’t have a cable long enough for that so I went Fry’s to pick one up. I found out Fry’s charges three times more for cables than what I can get them for from PCH Cables in Hillsboro. So I went other to Fred Meyers and picked up a wooden shelf… yes a shelf.
I went back home and modified this shelf… one shelf becomes two shorter ones. It turned out perfect. I put computer parts on the shorter one, the taller one is the perfect height for a computer bench. For fixing computers and what not. I’m very proud of it. Anyway… then I just cleaned for a while. By then all 6 loads of laundry is done. Mom and I had a deal. I would do all the shifting and taking them down and up the three flights of stairs if she would fold them. So back to my room. Then I get hungry, so I go pick up some chicken teriaki, and now I’m here. Typing a little diddy while I eat. Exciting huh?
Anyway, I still have room stuff to do. I’d like to work on the webpage some too. Back to it!
Actually it’s 4:41 in the afternoon. I’m on my lunch break with not a whole lot to do. I went to a lady’s house to figure out some computer problems for her. I could get used to this work. People are always happy to see me. It’s great. All that’s in their heads is “YES! My computer will work!!” It’s a good feeling, I have to tell you. I met her cat too… it’s nuts. One of those cats that stairs at the walls and into nothingness. I wish I could be crazy as a cat.
Umm… saw Electra the other day. It was an entertaining movie. The fight scenes left much to be desired. The plot wasn’t presented well at all. But it did have Jennifer Garner. That’s always a plus. Some of the bad guys were pretty darn cool, too. All in all you would get more amusement from watching Alias… at least they explain what’s going on a little better.
Mmm… stew. I like stew.
Umm… Hmm… Errr…. I’m going ot go do something else now… hope you don’t mind. Bye bye
http://www.racts.com It’s up… it’s not operational, but it’s up. I’m rather happy with it actually. I know it doesn’t look professional, but it’s what my talents and tastes can dream up at the moment. Umm… not much else to say. I got yesterday off since it was icey. I’m off to a book fairly soon. Night.
Well, I still can’t do anything to the site. WTF is taking so long? It’s been about 5 days now. Oh well, gives me a chance to read Te of Piglet. It’s the “companion book” to Tao of Pooh. Both are very good books. Anyway… nothing much else to tell. I work therefore I am. I guess I’ll update about the rest of my weekend since I have 15 minutes left for lunch and nothing better to do.
Saturday nightI got talked into heading to Monmouth at 10:30pm. Didn’t get there till like 11:15ish. Lindsay, Erin and I headed to the school loung/food/pool/huge TV with SNL on it room. We sat about for a good five minutes waiting for Erins friends to show their faces. They did show their faces, as well as their pajamas. So we all took turns poking the white ball with our givin’ sticks, trying to get other balls of various color to go into yonder hole. Erin didn’t play, she just watched. Because she was a pooper. I think we only played 3 games, no one but me wanted to play in the first place. So then we sat in the chairs next to the pool table talking to eachother. I got a little better aquainted with Erins friends-not not aquainted enough to remember their names. One was a happy girl who bought me a soda with her student card that I think her parents, or the government pay for. It was a nice gesture non-the-less, I enjoyed my 7up very much, thank you if you’re out there. She also told me about the land she’s from, over yonder hills and where it’s much colder than Monmouth was that perticular night. Erin’s friend number two talked about computer stuff more than an average girl usually does. She was entertaining as well. But alas, all must go our own ways… besides, Erin wasn’t feeling like herself. So we went back to Erins. Lindsay and I introduced her to a few known Flash cartoons. Then we went to bed. Erin in hers(even tho she said I could use her bed before I came… lier), Lindsay on the couch. Then there was me on the floor with two blankets, a pillow, and a very noisy space heater. In the morning Lindsay and I went home. I put a orange cone on Erins antena before departing.
Almost time to get back… LIGHTNING ROUND!! Went bowling with Dad, Jessi, and Luc. Then go pizza. Then go Pool. Then go home. Then go crazy! Work time! BYE!
I don’t know. I felt like updating, but I didn’t feel like explaining much. So I’ll just sum up. Worked yesterday, pretty good day. Lindsay came over after to give me ideas. They were all too artsy fartsy and would take way to much time to produce… but it gave me a couple ideas. Lindsay’s laptop(she brought it over) has this heat problem. It shuts itself off once something inside over heats. I thought I’d be helpful and get a heat-sink for her… it had this fand snapped to it, so I was prying at it with a screw driver. The screw driver slipped… now I have a nice gash from the bottom of my finger nail to my knuckle. I guess there aren’t many nerve endings in the back of the thumb because I didn’t feel a thing… it just bled like rain.
Today was spent doing various chores and errands while trying to concentrate on making pictures and pages for the website. It was hard to concentrate. I didn’t get much done. But it’s no matter, since I still can’t do anything to the domain. I need to get some sleep… have a good night everybody.
Not to long ago I got a phone call at work, this lady was wondering if ENU made house calls. I almost laughed at her, that’s how bound and deturmined we are to conveniancing the customer at ENU. Number one is the company. Number two is the manager. Three is the customer. Associates get to clean up. That’s how every company is run. It has to be, or you could get sued… or screwed… or both. Anyway. That’s not a part of this story. I didn’t laugh at her, instead I told her I do house calls on the side. Numbers swap. Her new Dell arrives and she calls me up.
So around 9 I head over there and do my stuff(set up her computer, copying useful files from the old computer to the new via USB). Missing Alias and most of Lost 😦 But my mom taped it, so it’s ok 🙂 It was all pretty cool because I got a nearly functional computer and $75 out of the deal! After thinking about it I realised I spent about 4 hours working for that… 30 minutes of it was driving home and back for a eithernet cable. So laying back, chatting with this friendly older couple and using some useful computer knowledge I made more than I made in my 8 hours at work. I started laughing when I realised this while driving home. I could do this! For real! I know I can! I just DID it!
Well, my mind is all alight with how to get my ball a-rolling… but I better goto bed anyway.
It is 2005, and I am so there! lol. Went to Luke’s house for new years eve. In case any one who reads my posts doesn’t know, my sister is engadged to this guy Luke. She was there too, obviously, as well as Lindsay and Lukes roomie Brendon. It wasn’t a very exciting time… we drank champaign and watched Dodge Ball, this one Garden movie with Natalie Portman and the dude from scrubs, and finally Collateral. In other words, it wasn’t unlike any other night… save for in between movies we watched the ball drop in Time Square… three house after it actually dropped, obviously. lol, I talked to my friend, Miki, the Eve of New years Eve and she was in the process of celebrating new years. Her family lives in Japan, so that’s where she is for the Christmas break.
Yesterday was rather fun. I didn’t do much the first half of the day… bought printer ink, bird seed and corn on el cob. I came back to play with my new game controller until Lindsay brought me back to the real world. We went to look at cars, cuz she wrecked hers 😉 She hates it when I say that. But it was fun… just going from used car lot to used car lot on 82nd-there’s like 3.8 million of them over there-avoiding car sales people who want to tell us their life story and mainly looking at cars. I need a new car too, remember?
Anyway, after that we went back to her house and ripped the lights off her christmas tree… all 9 strands of them! ONE TREE! Intricately wrapped around each and every little twig! At least I smell pine fresh now. Finally we headed over to Jess’s house-friend girl Jess-picked her up and went to see The Aviator. I liked the movie. I’d rarely even heard of Howard Hughs before this movie. What and interesting guy/story! It was wierd because he was a little crazy; by a little crazy I mean he would repeate the same thing 29 and a half times and he had that germ phobia. A good movie to see once, I think.
