Fontuky, Simi, Palm Springs, Salton Sea, Weist Lake, El Centro

So to start off, I drove a LOT this weekend. Check out my trip here.

So not to much has really happened since my last post. I hung out with Jason and his new boy James on Saturday, got a new couch which was TONS of fun. And VERY comfy!

Sunday was rock climbing and this new guy came who was HOT. Lucky! Yum! Anyways, it was a GREAT day of climbing. We’re headed out to Death Valley on Feb 20.

After that I drove to the Salton Sea which was a mess, took some pics then drove to Wiest lake to camp. Smelled LIKE SHIT!

Got up Monday morning and drove to El Centro, Took about 10 minutes to fix the problem they were having down there, so that was annoying. I hung around till 11:30 to make sure everything was working and then headed home.

I’ve txted Kris a few times this week. No reply. Guess we are not friends any more. Oh well!

Happy Birthday to Me!

Sorry it’s been so long. I’ve been very very busy!

So going back, two weekends ago, Kris and I went to San Diego{/wiki] to visit his friend Suze and for my Birthday. We had a mostly good trip down there, but it became clear as the weekend went on that he only went down to see his friends and I was a total third wheel. He HATES and bitches when people are the third wheel, so I got very annoyed. Sunday he asked what I wanted to do, I told him the one thing that I would have liked to see and do again that I know in town. Now, I don’t know San Diego, and if _I_ took a friend to a town that I knew very well and they didn’t know very well, I would come up with suggestions of things for them/us to do. I was offered no such items. So instead we basically wasted the day wondering around and watching a movie. On the ride home he asked what was wrong. I told him, he BLEW up at me saying that I was only pissed because the weekend wasn’t ALL about me. We haven’t spoken since. He told me that I was being childish. Ugh. Whatever.

We went to the San Diego wild animal park while there. That was tons of fun at least! 🙂 I took like 400 pictures with the new camera. Only kept 200 of them. Still trying to widdle down to my favorites. I’m going to have to get used to deleting images now that EACH picture is 10megs!

So anyways, Birthday week wasn’t all that exciting. Jason and I had a heart-to-heart one night, I got a birthday package from Aaron and Erick which was VERY nice of them! Although, I just went to get some chocolate out of the box and there’s a WHOLE bar missing!! WHO the FUCK steals a bar of chocolate out of someone’s box on their desk!? Ugh. These are the idiots I work with.

Speaking of idiots. So my big project that I was all exciting about before the holidays. Well the boss man has TAKEN IT OVER and is ruining it with lightening efficiency. Basically he’s writing the requirements without EVER talking to the end users about what they want to see changed and what they do, etc. He says, “I have a basic idea of how things work.” You MIGHT. BUT that doesn’t mean you have ANY IDEA about how things are ACTUALLY working! Plus part of this project is to REDUCE the number of Excel spreadsheets that are wondering around the company. Well you would think that you would NEED TO KNOW what those are and how they are getting used to be sure that they are going to be worked into the new software. He has NOT begun at ALL exploration of what those spreadsheets are. VERY ANNOYING.

Also he designed a [wiki]Gnatt chart in fucking EXCEL! Who does Gnatt charts in EXCEL!? Idiots do Gnatt charts in EXCEL, that’s WHO!

So then, remember how I went to Caborca and NO ONE knew the fucking passwords. Well apparently LAST week German, the guy in Caborca, figured them out or remembered them or something. So anyways, the boss calls me the other day and we proceed to have a 20 minute convo in which I have to EXPLAIN TO HIM in detail a reason why my solution to a problem is the ONLY solution. I mention SEVERAL times in my reasoning that this is BECAUSE WE DO NOT KNOW THE passwords. AT THE END of the convo, the boss says, “By the way German has access to the server now”. I ask, “How is that?”. He says, “because he remembered the password”. DON’T YOU THINK that’s something you should have mentioned to me RIGHT AWAY when you found out?! Don’t you think that’s something that would be HELPFUL to me to do my FUCKING JOB!

Anyways, so for my Birthday Jason and I had Champagne and Cake, just a low-class day. Nothing to exciting. I really wasn’t into my birthday again this year.

So this past weekend, I was gonna go on a quick backpacking trip with JoEric and Claudia, but it rained and was nasty and it’s a good thing I didn’t go because I ended up pretty damn sick all weekend! So Saturday I dropped of Asparagus off to George and then went to Griffith Observatory with Jason and his new wife. Had a good time overall, came home, took a vicodin and went to bed.

Sunday I spent the whole day laying on the couch. Tried to do laundry, but everyone else in the building apparently had the same Idea. So I got nothing done.

Climb Master!

What a busy busy weekend, do you ever expect anything less from me?

So Friday I got _pissed_ at Jason. He’s just being such a fucking asshole lately. Keeps saying he wants to be closer, but the way he acts is just NOT conducive to that at all. I invited him to go out to GGB with Kris and I and he was just a total jerk about going. Blah blah blah. Anyways, so I went home after work and took a nap. Woke up to Kris calling me at 8pm, we were supposed to leave at 8:30. Tells me he can’t go because he has no money. UGH! I was PISSED. After Jason being such a douche bag about it and then Kris canceling. I mean REALLY!? He was gonna get his fucking money SOMETIME this weekend, but he couldn’t afford to go out and have fun ONE fucking night. It just annoys me that he thinks he has to gout and get PLASTERED just to have fun at the bars. That’s NOT what GGB is about at all. He wouldn’t even consider going at all. Really pissed me off. So instead of going out and having a great time at GGB with friends and meeting cool people. I spent the night home, alone on my couch watching STUPID ass movies. UGH!

Saturday morning I got up and dropped the car off at the dealer. Time for new brakes! This weekend also marks 1 year of having the car! Yay! I put 23,000 miles on it in a year! Insanity! So drop the car off, get a loaner and head out to go shopping with Anthony. We get going and find out that I forgot my house keys in my car. I was planning on having the loaner all weekend, so I wanted to just go back and pick up my keys and then get going. Well we get there and they say it’s only going to be like 10 more minutes, so we just wait around, pick up the car and then head out for shopping. I ended up buying two REALLY cute shirts at Express for like $60. I can’t wait to wear them to work!

Headed home after that and then picked up Kris to go to the Roller Derby show. Got to Glendale with just the right amount of time and had a really funny show from Charles. They had some REALLY hot roller skating boys too. Found out that one of them was only 16! Opps. Came home after that and crashed.

Sunday I got up and headed out Rock climbing. This weekend JoEric and I ran the whole thing which was very exciting for us! We were very scared Saturday morning because the weather said 40% chance of rain. Thankfully the winds picked up and blew away all the clouds and we could not have asked for MORE PERFECT weather for climbing. It was SOooooooo clear you could see for miles! Dan from Iowa came out and we had three girls. JoEric and I finished up the climb that I started last weekend. Still some work to do on it regarding foot holds, and what not. But it’s going to be a fun fun climb! Ate lunch after that and the guy at the counter totally hated us because we were confusing him and ourselves at the same time!

Got home from climbing and got pissed off at Jason again. I was forwarded an email he had sent to someone else. He’s just one shady mofo. I am really starting to not like him at all. He’s just always up in everyone’s business, but REFUSES to open up about his own fucking business. Like I’m supposedly one of his best friends, yet this email that was forwarded to me I knew NOTHING about. Then he posts on Facebook that he’s going to fireworks in MB. Like if I were going to that with a group of people, I would have INVITED him, or at least told him about it. I mean really? If I hear about neat things in the area, I’m the FIRST to spread the word about them so that other people can enjoy it if they wanted to. He didn’t even have to invite me, but at least let me know it’s going on. He’s lived here WAY longer then anyone else I know. It’s just like the whole Manhattan Open House thing. Like that would have been TONS of fun to get a group together and go. Even If I’m not cool enough to hang out with his friends.

Whatever, it’s just VERY annoying the way that he acts about shit. Like he’s ALWAYS txting/emailing “What are you doing”. Even when it doesn’t fucking MATTER at all what I’m doing (because he already has other plans, etc). But if you ask him what he’s doing he gets all pissy and defensive about it.

Anyways, so after all that Anthony came over again and we drank some wine, made out and cuddled in bed for a while. It was nice. 🙂 Went to bed at like 10ish and woke up at 4ish this morning to POURING rain which was nice. It’s been raining almost all day long. I was very annoyed this morning though because A) People have NO idea how to drive in the rain and B) they were doing road construction on PCH and had 2 of the 3 lanes closed. Who the F does construction on a fucking MONDAY morning in the fucking RAIN!

I cannot wait to get home for Christmas! You have no idea! I am just gonna lay around the house, climb at the new gym, hot tub, drink with friends and see family! Yay!

Waco, Bike Ride, New Route!

Ok, Ok. I’m a little slow in updating about this past weekend, but I was HOPING that I would get the pictures from the weekend. Apparently not.

This weekend was AMAZING yet again!

So Friday… What did I do Friday? I think that was the night I put up my Christmas lights and went shopping with Kris? Maybe? Not really sure. Apparently it wasn’t anything thrilling!

Saturday I got up around 9 and went for a bike ride with Jason. We went up to Marina Del Ray and back like we used to back in the old days. It was tons of fun! On the way there we were doing around 16mph, on the way back we were ranging from 20-25mph! It was an amazing ride! Whenever we passed someone on the strand it was really funny to listen to their reactions as we went FLYING past!

Got back from that and showered then headed to the airport to meet up with Jake. He was there of course so we futzed around and got him to take us flying. That is AFTER we figured out why the gas pump was SUCKING gas out of the tank instead of topping it off! LOL! It was hilarious!

So Jason and I climbed in the front of the plane, it was a TIGHT fit, and off we went! Oh my god, was that the best flying ever! Loops, formation flying, off the water at like 50 feet! AMAZING! I cannot wait to get the pics and post them here. After that we landed and went to In ‘n Out! Delicious!

Went home from there and I did something Saturday night? I think maybe watched a movie or something? Somewhere this weekend I cleaned off my desk as well. It was a mess!

Anyways, Sunday was the typical rock climbing day. I did some really good climbs. We were back on our normal location this time and climbing that stuff seemed a HELL of a lot easier then they used to be. I even started a new route which was TONS of fun!

Sunday night Anthony (the young italian) came over. We had a good time, watched a movie, talked, etc. He’s a nice guy. We’re going shopping on Saturday. We’ll see how that goes.

Other then that, not much up this week. Ran into Ben at 24 hour the other day. That was random. He’s looking good as usual.

Work has been BUSY. I took a package to our SHIPPING office over a WEEK ago. Yesterday this guy comes into my office with a package in the same shape. I ASSUMED it was the computer being returned all FIXED and what not. NO it was the SAME FUCKING PACKAGE that I gave to the shipping office. The idiots NEVER sent it! WTF!

I’m out.

Week from Hell!

This has been a week from HELL!

Oh my god, everything has been braking and it’s been like Christmas around here. I have been getting boxes for shit nearly every day!

So Monday I come in and things just aren’t working. Our Faxes got all screwed up with the number porting so nothing was working there, then other stuff broke then I was in meetings all afternoon. It was a mess. IE: This guy comes in at 9:30 and says the screen on his laptop is not working, also he has a flight to Argentina at 10:30. Yeah an HOUR to fix it, I think NOT! Then the CEO comes in at 10 and says his laptop is not working.. Also, he’s on the same flight!

Tuesday was MORE of the same, things breaking, shit coming in that needs immediate attention. I have this HUGE project in Mexico coming up and I MUST get all the hardware ready for it to be done. I have two weeks today to get it setup here, tested, then packed and shipped down there. I’m not sure it’ll make it! lol.

ALSO the PIX 501 in Washington went out. So they mailed it to me. Of course Cisco doesn’t MAKE a PIX 501 anymore so we had to get an ASA 5505. Things have not been going so well with that. Although I think that I finally have it setup right. I just need to figure out how to test it all out! LOL

Wed was MORE mess. Honestly I can’t even remember all the shit that has stopped working this week/needed my attention NOW!

At one point this week, I had three monitors, two laptops, a PIX 501, the ASA 5505 ON my desk and then NEXT to my desk I had two Poweredge 840’s and an Optilex 740. I was working on ALL of them at once!

Then today, this bitch stops me as I’m dropping something off and she’s like, “My insert key doesn’t work”. Then she got all pissed that I couldn’t waste my time to fucking fix it for her right there!! UGH! People. First if you fucking WANT something, email me about it. That’s the only way to be SURE that I get information. ALSO today, I called a company we had purchased stuff from and yelled at them for not getting it to me on time. Only to find it out had actually been delivered EARLY and someone hadn’t notified me that it was waiting at the front desk. (It’s been there since the Nov 24th!).

So other then that, I made a batch of pfeffernusse. Had this guy Adam come over while I did that and we hung out. Long story short, I found out that Kris had met him at a coffee shop a few days before and KNEW that I knew him but didn’t say anything. I was fairly annoyed. The guy on the other hand was mostly annoying, one of those people who’s smart and really likes to show it off. I find that such a turn off. Kris went on a date with him as well, said he enjoyed it.

That started a huge conflit between us. Very annoying in general, here I thought he and I were getting closer, but apparently I’m in the friends category with him now for good. So whatever. Just annoying in general. I can never keep what I want. I need to just stop being so fucking stupid and let the emotions out!

So in anyways, then I planned a date with this other guy Anthony. He’s Italian, just graduated college with a Human Development degree and has no real job… But other then that he was fun! Not sure how I felt. He was cute and we had a good time, but if you’ve seen Mambo italiano. That’d basically be him, in a family who’s anti-gay or whatever. And also, WTF is he gonna do with a human development degree? Where’s he going with that? Who knows. He’s very inexperienced in the whole dating/gay scene as well. Which can be a positive and a negative. Good in that he still has those hopes and dreams of finding a great guy, bad in that who knows if he’ll turn into one of those whores once he finds all the hot guys of Weho! We’ve got a second date today. Should be interesting!
