Sink Eater!

It’s been a really boring week for me. Lots of work, biking, working out and QaF. I’ve taken on another contract job. This one will be only about 10 hours and then done with. Although there is perhaps a chance of monthly maint. It’ll be fun. The hardware was ordered, so nothing much to really do with it till that gets here.

I purchased these videos on iTunes the other day, you should all go watch them here: The Ride. Very moving. And then please go donate to me! I’m still at $0! I need some money to get started.

Work Work has been really boring. I’m waiting on this guy to get things done, sadly he can’t test his own software because he needs access to our Cisco VoIP system, so every time he changes something he has to e-mail it to me and it never works right. I just want the window to pop up to the front! Why is that so hard. You can see a demonstration of what I’m doing here.

NBC being sued by insinkerator. I think this is retarded. In one of the new “Heros” episodes it showed a girl’s hand getting eaten off by a garbage disposal. Comon people, get over it. They already block out the words “Coke” and “Pepsi” and everything else on TV shows. How bad is this going to get. Products get used in real life. Get over it! Yeah its showing your product in a bad light, but so what. It’s showing that these things can be dangerous. No matter what garbage disposal you have it’s going to be dangerous!

I also read this article about the 10 worst congressmen. It really pissed me off. These people claim to be so much more morally superior to us and all this shit. Yet look at what they’ve done. Sadly none of the candidates to replace them are all that much beter. I still say we need a revolution!

Plans for this weekend include: Biking saturday morning, working on my clock some more, buying some painting supplies, cleaning, watching QaF with this guy I’ve been talking to, more gym, and baking an apple pie! Go me!

My clock has been sitting on the floor for over a month now, just waiting for my EE man to complete his part. Very annoying because he keeps saying he’ll get to it. I finially got pissed and found someone else to do it. So I asked him for my stuff back. Said he’d drop if off last weekend, nothing. He BETTER fucking drop it off THIS weekend or I’ll be pissed.. Perhaps file a stolen items report or something. who knows!

I got a couple checks the other day from my first couple contract jobs. I remember why I never clean off my desk. Because when I do I CAN NOT find what I need. My bank has these special envelopes that you send your deposits in. If you don’t use the envelopes they send you it takes up to a week longer to get the money. So I went looking for them to send in these checks.. NO WHERE to be found! I know I had at least 10 of them not that long ago! 🙁

I completed my first Automator script the other day. 44 items, it’s pretty cool. Although it’s so simple it confused the hell out of me! 🙂

Laters.

Revolution Time!

Seriously people, what is WRONG with this country, 3 school shootings in the last week, this guy in congress, Dirty dirty dirty. It’s time for a revolution. If this doesn’t wake up all those damn right wing bitches, then what will!?

This man was head of the group to protect children online and yet he was doing this!?!? This man is discusting and should be shot or something. The republican leadership that covered this up should be thrown out and Bush should be impeached… Well just for being Bush. I haven’t read anything yet that he was aware of this. But it’s been going on for at least 5 years! Comon people, why wasn’t something done about this YEARS ago!

How many poor kids did this man actually molest or something? Who knows, but you sure know it went much farther then just dirty messages online! UGH

REVOLUTION PEOPLE! Vote new people in… It’s coming up soon! Ugh!

In other news, the Germany trip is coming along it appears… I think I’m getting my hopes up a little too much though. I feel it’s all going to fall through any minute now.

Drove down to NB today, there was a car on fire and the freeway was REALLY backed up. Very annoying… Been chatting with people all morning about things since, and haven’t really started any work.

Application IN!

So, I finially got the application for that place, and sent it in. That was one hell of a hassle in and of itself. After all the work I’ve put in to get this place, I HAD BETTER GET IT! One thing I don’t get though is why do the landlords think they have the right to know your bank account numbers, etc?! I mean, with all that information it would be VERY SIMPLE for them to drain your account of EVERY PENNY!

In other news… seems things with Dustin aren’t going to work out, and here I was hoping that things were on the right path… I haven’t heard squat from him since Saturday morning. He said he’d call me last night, and never did. I’m kinda sad about it. I was wanting to have “the talk” with him this week, see how things were going for him, tell him how I was feeling, and see where he wanted to take things. But I guess this is a good indication.

I guess it’s time to start looking again. 🙁 Maybe I’m just jumping to conclusions, honestly I hope I am.

I was supposed to write something about some NDA things here, but I can’t remember what they were about….

The stupid old man won american idol, WTF is up with that?

Not much else to report, adios.

Edit:// Ok, I just read about this on CNN: Congress passes funeral protest ban. Ok, I hate Fred Phelps as much as the next guy, but isn’t there something like freedom of assembly or some shit? How can they ban people from doing this. I think it’s stupid. Ugh, rights people, where are they going?!?! I didn’t see them passing fucking bans when they protests at Matthew Shepards funeral, where were they for that? Jackasses.

Top Story!!

Ok, so I guess I need to clarify about this whole going quiet thing… It’s not that I’m going to completly stop updating… Just that MORE of my entries will be private. IE, I had a date last night… Info about that = Private Entry. 🙂

So last night though and all this morning, the “TOP STORY” on all the news stations was about Britney Spears putting her child on her lap while she was driving. And now she’s apparently under investigation for Child Endangerment! WTF?

_I_ Remember growing up and pretty much ONLY sitting on my dad’s lap when we were driving around town, the same with when I was with my grandpa! People are just fucking going crazy about this and it’s really annoying. This is NOT THE TOP NEWS STORY OF THE DAY. How about all the fires going on, or the peoplpe dying in this retarted war, or the HUGE spending bill that Bush is trying to push through congress or any of the other things that ACTUALY MATTER!

Fucking news people. Grrr.

Adios.

Another Day…

Another Sleepless night… Got about 3 or 4 hours last night! Why am I so fucked up?

You might also notice that this post is much earlier then normal. That’s because I’m starting work at 5am this morning. Blah! I also have to cover the HD from 9am to 1pm. Grrr.

So last night I was just going to go out to a club, for the first time since I moved here, and then come to work about 3am and sleep here till 5amish… Well, I called all the usual club suspects, but none of them answered. I’m guessing they were probably already there. Oh well. So instead I spent the night installing bittorrent on my MythBox. One would think this to be an easy thing to do!

Well, you are wrong. I had to install GTK+, which in itself required a ton of dependencies, and then it was complaining that I had the wrong version of something and I had to re-install that. Blah!

Then, I installed pygtk, and now it keeps saying I have ver 2.0.0, and bittorrent requires 2.8.+. Well, I FUCKING installed 2.8.2. Stupid ass thing. Then I went to reboot and the fucking Xserver wouldn’t start for some reason! Blah.

I e-mailed my District Director and Assistant director yesterday asking if they could put me in contact with some troops in need of adults. I’m kinda of annoyed though because I sent it at 9am yesterday and I have yet to hear back from them. Being in the posistion they are, they should be able to say off the top of thier heads which troops might need some help. If not, they should at least e-mail me back and say that they will look into it… I’m hoping that maybe they are just going to wait to after tonights district meeting, and maybe ask there if they need anyone. I should just go to the meeting because it’s right down the street from my house.

OMG! Someone GET THIS MAN OUT OF OFFICE!

A call by U.S. President George W. Bush for Congress to give him the power to use the military in law enforcement roles in the event of a bird flu pandemic has been criticized as akin to introducing martial law.

Bush said aggressive action would be needed to prevent a potentially disastrous U.S. outbreak of the disease that is sweeping through Asian poultry and which experts fear could mutate to pass between humans.

I love the pic they used for him though! haha. What a fuck tard.

And that’s my life. Adios!
