Headed to WA!

So I’m headed to WA in an hour or so. Good stuff. I actually just google mapped Pasco to find out where the fuck it is in the world. Come to find out it’s only 3 hours to some MAJOR stuff that I would love to do! So next time I go, I’ll spend more time up there and plan the trip a little bit better!

So this past weekend was really good. Thursday night, Sirin, Daniel and I went out to dinner and then drinks. Had a lot of fun, lots of chatting, lots of laughing.

Friday was more work. I actually WALKED in on the CFO having a meeting with our contractor about a project that _I_ am doing. He was telling the contractor NOT to do my project that it wasn’t part of the scope of our work. Then after he hung up he DENIED having the meeting, DENIED telling them to NOT do the work: “Chris, I just told him to go ahead with the work, I don’t see what the problem is.” I then had a meeting with the contractor who said that, “I’ve been given the permission to give you information on how to do it.”

UGH. Fucking jackass.

So that night I had dinner and wine with Daniel again. He actually spent the night and we had some “fun”. 😉 Slept very well that night!

Got up Saturday morning and he drove me up to get the Bronco. Got it back to the office, he dropped me off, I cleaned my apartment and then went out shopping.

First stop: DSW Shoes. Where I bought 3 new pairs of shoes! I NEARLY bought a very cute pair of Hugo Boss dress shoes, but they were $150. So I didn’t! 🙁

Second stop: Target. Some bitch yelled at me because I was trying to get around her fat ass. Her HUGE ass was blocking the WHOLE isle and she was walking so fucking slow… Also some fat mexicans were blocking the condoms. Then I come out of the store and this HUGE mexican bitch is trying to get into her truck. With her door LEANING on my car. I move it and there’s this HUGE white mark on the side of my car. I start yelling at her and threaten to call the cops. Blah blah blah. Stupid fat bitch.

Drove home and this asshole pulls out RIGHT infront of me. I have to slam on my brakes and then honk at him and swerve around him to avoid hitting. He starts to tail gate me, so at the next red light I slow down WAY before I need to. He gets all pissy and at the next light he pulls up next to me and starts trying to hit me and make me run off the road. Then pulls RIGHT in front of me, STOPS his car, GETS out and starts screaming at me and hitting my car! So I back up, go around him and speed off. Turn the next corner and get down to the end of the street and then I see him behind me AGAIN! Asshole was following me! So I speed off and lose him in the twists and turns of PV. Fucking crazy ass people!

So that night I made cupcakes and then Daniel came over again. He only stayed for a couple hours but we watched a movie and then he went to Weho with some friends.

Sunday I got up and went rock climbing. Nothing to exciting there. I only got to climb once! To damn many girls are coming climbing now and Jerry is all about letting the girls climb over the guys which is very annoying. But whatever.

Came home from that, packed, did some random shit and then went to bed.

That’s about all people. Later!

PS. I can’t believe it’s been a year since Const and I broke up….

Weekend of WORK!

So this past weekend, all I did was WORK WORK WORK!

It started at 8:30am Friday when I got a call. Nothing major, just someone needing shit done which sucked. So I got out of bed and headed to the office, got in there, then started getting ready for the evenings project. Aaron was on his way in and we were going to dismantle and then re-rack the entire rack system. So by 5 I had most of the minor systems out and then at 5 I shut down the rest of the stuff. By the time aaron got there and we got done chatting it was dinner time, so the Controller ordered in Dinner for us. After that we shut down the last server and started cleaning up and dismantling the network connections.

So anyways, after tons and tons of work, we got everything back in to the rack and got the major stuff back up and working by 5am Saturday.

Got home and slept till noon and then got up again and headed back to the office. It was supposed to not take as long but of course it wasn’t another easy night. We took systems down by 3pm and they got back up at midnight. The new systems are great! 🙂 I can’t wait to get to start actually using them!

One major problem is that my Linux VZ server is having major RAID problems now, so that sucks.

We got done with on Saturday and this REALLY hot Warehouse worker invited Aaron and I out to dinner, so we went and I paid. I’ll just charge the company! haha. Aaron got the guy’s number! lol

Got home and went to bed by 2 and then Sunday I got up at 7 am went rock climbing. It was an amazing day! I’m so glad that I went because we learned how to do a short rope rappel which was just an amazing experience!

Came home around 5ish and met up with Daniel again. He’s so super cute. We both always laugh and chat a lot when he’s here, but I’m just a little concerned about A) his lack of schooling and B) his pot smoking! 🙁

We shall see where that goes.

Today I got up late cause I woke up at 4am puking. So I got dressed up, packed up my bag and then go to the office. Went to get my bag out of the back seat and it was missing! So I had to come back home. So I’m just working from home today. HOWEVER, since my Linux server is dead. I have no idea what I need to do! LOL

Grandma leaves tomorrow!

It’s been a BUSY weekend here! I’ve driven over 700 miles with grandma in the last few days.

So Friday, Jason and I left work early and headed out to Palm Springs. On the way there we stopped at the Octo-Mom’s house for some fun and entertainment! Got to PS and saw the sign for the tram way and jason said he’d never been on it. So we took a detour there and played in the snow some!

Picked up grandma from PS after some swimming and a delicious dinner!

Got home late and went to bed, Saturday we got up and went to downtown where I showed her around some then saw Frost/Nixon the play. Amazing! 🙂 To bad it’s not still playing!

After that we went to the farmers market and then came home.

Sunday we got up and went out to meet the rock climbing group, did some MINOR rock climbing, and then tried to eat lunch with the group, but it was getting to late so we had to go home. Made the noodles and roast and then relaxed around the house for a bit.

That evening we had a dinner party at Jason’s house which was TONS of fun. Sirin, Jason, my grandma and I had a great time just chatting and hanging out and what not. Also Jason made amazing Cheesecake and Sirin made brownies! YUM!

Monday morning we got up and had breakfast at the local crepe place with the BITCHY waitress, then headed out and we saw the Hsi Lai Temple, Watts Towers, ate lunch at a Vegan place and then went Wine Tasting, then saw Venice beach and drove home after that and again spent the evening at the house.

Tuesday we got up and lounged around the house a bit then drove off to eat lunch at this place called “The Counter” that my grandma told me about a long time ago. She seemed to enjoy it! From there we drove around 3rd street in santa monica, then off to the Getty for the afternoon. Once we were done there we drove home, made dinner and waited for my aunt to get there.

After she leaves I only get 2 days to myself before more company comes! What a busy busy life!

Family Time!

So this past weekend was good family time. Friday after work I drove to downtown LA, met up with Claudia and JoEric, we ate dinner at Clifton’s in downtown and then went to the Jonathan Club for George’s recital. It was off to a rocky start but got better. The kids that played there were great. Of course a large group of the climbers were there, so it was fun hanging out with them!

After that I drove out to Fontana and met up with the family. Basically just got there, chatted some in the hot tub and then went to bed.

Saturday we got up and ate some delicious sausage biscuits and gravy and then headed down to Dana Point for the beach. Good times there, it was COLD and over cast, but Keira loved it! So that’s what matters. From there we drove home and ate smores by the fire and then hot tubbing

Sunday I got up early and went to meet the climbing group. It looked like we were going to ge to climb and then ALL of a sudden it started POURING rain! 🙁 Very annoying. So I drove back to the aunt’s house where she gave us copies of the family cook book which was SO nice of her! 🙂

From there we went to Mission Inn and the weather cleared up for the time we were there which was great! We wondered around and got a great feel of the place. It’s very pretty! Brunch was of course delicious. After that we drove down to Newport Beach where the aunt got stuck in the 91-Express Car pool lane! LOL. Crazy aunt!

Got to the boat and got on and then found out that we weren’t going anywhere because of the high winds! So that was annoying. We ate dinner, danced a little and then left.

Monday and Tuesday were nothing special, Jason and I went out shopping and ended up buying 2 cases of wine at BevMo! Opps! Good thing he paid for it all! lol. Last night Daniel came over and we went to this little park and chatted for a while then I showed him the place in LA that I like going to overlook it, then back to my house where we watched TV and made out. Good times!

Today I was going to bike to work, but after the ride last night I was too sore, so I got Jason to drive me. lol.

I go pick grandma up tomorrow! 🙂

Boys boys BOYS!

Ugh, So I’m already getting very burned out with the whole dating scene.

I’ve had like 5 or 6 dates since really starting to get back into the swing of things. Most of them all turn out to have something that I really don’t like. For instance, one is cute and funny, but he smokes pot (Daniel). A lot of pot! So there goes that one. Another one, also cute and funny and he’s really been out there, seen life, etc. He’s the navy boy that spent the night. BUT he doesn’t really have any ambition in life, doesn’t know what he wants to do, “doesn’t care” about Obama, the prop 8 fight, etc. He’s TRAINED jet engine mechanic but is working as a server in a restaurant. Really? You couldn’t find ANYTHING better after getting out of the Navy?

The other are all ok I guess, but I just don’t know. Where’s the guy who we work together so well. I think part of the problem is that I’ve already built up such a life for myself, an apartment, a rental house, a cat, two cars, and lots of adventures. This is something that’s going to be hard to merge into someone elses life. But I think that it’s possible to do, right? Does this independence scare off people?

I’ve got my stuff that I do, rock climbing, out doors, hiking, biking, etc. But what is it that I look for in someone? I am typically drawn to people who are more artistic. More into the Opera, art galleries, nice nights at wine bars and restaurants.

I want to have a balanced relationship. I think that he should be semi into the things I do, he doesn’t have to want to come out for the week long backpacking trips that I want to do, he doesn’t have to hike 12,000feet of elevation in 24 hours. But he should at least be willing to come out and enjoy a weekend of camping with me, come out and enjoy a day of climbing. Just as I would expect that I don’t have to be drug out to EVERY opera or play in town, but I love having a nice night on the town, see a nice place, go to the art museum, see the classical music at Disney, etc.

Why is this so hard to find? UGH!
