I got a summons to jury duty…. UGH! I’ve done so good at not getting those damn things! But my luch has finially run out! It starts in last Feb and the thing says is expected to last 5 months! Holy cow!

When I got the envelope and saw “District Court of LA” or what not. I was scared out of my mind. I was like, “Oh GOD! The feds caught me!”

This is a really boring but very interesting video about math in education. I highly suggest you watch it:

And this is a really cool video about the stress testing a Boeing 777 undergoes.

Do you hate those damn speed traps? Check out this CopSpy seems a little out dated, but still cool and could become useful if enough people submit to it.

Google updated the satellite images of the DM area. Check them out.You can see amazing deatil now!

I bought a new domain yesterday. It was one that the VP threw out when he was rambling, and I liked the sound of it. So I bought it. is now mine! 🙂 Now, what to do with it?! If you have any good ideas, let me know!

They posted the Tour De Palm Springs elevation and route maps the other day… Check them out. I’m a bit scared!!

Tuesday night I went out with Mayko to Beige. We had a really good time and ended up chatting with these two random guys. Well, he talked to them, cause they were speaking Portugesse. 🙁 God I really need to learn another language, I feel so stupid around them! hahah. Either way, the 405S was closed yet AGAIN! Why do they always do this to me!? So I got home shortly after 2am and got up to go to work at 4:45. So I’ve had about 2.5 hours of sleep. Ugh!

Tonight I’m hanging out with this guy Ben, we’re doing sushi. Tomorrow I am having lunch with this guy Jimmy, and Friday I an having dinner with Stephen. Saturday I am going to stay home and do work which I’ve been neglecting and Sunday I have a bike ride in the morning, a lunch business meeting and then hopefully Mayko and I can go out and spend the last of my birthday money! 🙂

I also need to find time to get my ass to SMC and get my Student ID and find out about parking. I’m also getting really nervous about this class and wondering if I should change over to French…. 🙁

Why is it that when you have to mail something to a federal agency you have to pay for postage? All incoming and outgoing mail to ANY federal office should be FREE. “God damnit. I have a problem right there!” LOL Oh Mayko!

Ok, adios!

Line-Item Veto

Ok, why are Republicans so stupid!…

“The Senate’s high-profile ethics and lobbying reform bill was sidetracked yesterday after conservatives voted against further consideration of the bill because it didn’t include an amendment giving President Bush line-item veto power, the ability to single out individual spending items in legislation for elimination.

Umm, last I checked Line-Item Veto was ruled unconstitutional back in 1998. So why are we pushing for it again?

Ten foods you should never eat. Why do they all look so tasty!

OMG. I was laughing sooo hard at that video!

Amazing shot of Toyko at night. I think I wanna go there this year. Maybe if I’m still talking to Mayko in November he can come with! haha

I want this waterfall in my house.

Check out these COOL Soviet Era bus stops! The real question is why are the all out in the middle of NO WHERE?

Apparently you can still cancel your Verizon contract even if you have a txting plan. However, it seems that Cingular doesn’t want your business until the iPhone actually does come out.

Detox your diet. I’m gonna have to start having more green tea or something.

The Aids/Lifecycle Campsites have been announced.. check them out. So who’s coming to which nights to hang out with me? haha.

And now for some real news. I posted a while back that my building was for sale, etc. Well, on Monday the boss called me and I had a total Office Space moment. The boss asked that I send him a list of what I do, and how much time it takes up. I could honestly only account for about 50% of my time. Since before Christmas, no new projects have been sent to me and I don’t have any LONG TERM projects that really keep me busy. Well today, he calls me again and basically said that they want me to start working out of that office 3 days a week so that they can integrate me on some other projects down there. Because PHS hasn’t fully utilized my time like they kept talking about when I moved up here! UGH.

WHAT TO DO!? :'(

But either way, starting Monday I will be in Newport Beach M,W,F and Santa Monica T,R.
Logo There are:
people with my name
in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

I’ve invited 23 people to go out tonight for my B-Day. So far 1 person has said for sure, and 3 have said “maybe”. We’ll see how this goes.


Sunken City, Germany & LifeCycle – UPDATED!

UPDATE: Photos are now online… AND Go check out my LifeCycle Page. And be sure to DONATE! 🙂

Well it’s official! I am going to GERMANY! I leave on Nov 17th and return Nov 23rd. Should be a GREAT trip! I can’t wait. Going to go hit up a book store this afternoon to buy a travel guide. I think that Jason is a bit pissed about it though. But he hasn’t been expressing any interest in it, has been completely uncooperative in my attempts to plan with him and just keeps putting things off, so I decided to just book with the person I knew could come and if he can fit it in then great! The more the marrier. But I wasn’t going to wait around while he ponders back and forth about it without giving any real answers.

I also had a meeting last night for LifeCycle and I am now officially signed up! The people there were VERY friendly and so nice, so yeah. Plus it was $20 off the registration. YAY! So be looking for me to hit you up for money SOON! I have to raise $2,500!!! 🙂

After that I had a meeting with this other guy about webstuff. It was a bit entertaining when he admitted he was gay as well. I kinda had a vibe, but wasn’t sure. And no, this was not one of the many dates, this guy has a bf and is older then I. It was strickly a business meeting. Ohhh, I had amazing Pumpkin pie while there! I highly suggest going to this place: Susina Bakery. 7122 Beverly Blvd (Cross Street: La Brea Avenue) Los Angeles, CA. Amazing food! And they had Coffee Marshmallows! It’s rated one of the top 10 bakeries in LA. If only I lived closer!

I didn’t get home till 10 and then worked till shortly after midnight. Got up this morning and am working till 7pm in NB. Gooood times y’all!

Check out Wikimapia.

Oh, Wed I went to this place called Sunken City in San Pedro with this guy Eric, he was cute and nice. I haven’t heard from him since or seen him online. I assume that’s a go no. lol. Pictures will be up on the photodump by the end of the night.

I’ve been pretty busy with other things this week, but I just can’t remember what. Sadly I’ve only made it to the gym and the bike trail once this week… Saturday I’m going on a 30-miler with this group from Santa Monica, so that should be good. I was thinking about doing one Sunday as well, but I’m not sure I want to get up at 7am both days of my weekend! Plus I have another business meeting on Sunday. Weeeee



Today’s commute = 3.5 hours… Total time in my car today: 6.5 hours. Total Miles driven = 145.

I took me 2.5 hours to get from SM back to AV today. It only took me an hour this morning to get from AV up to SM. This is insane, fucking LA traffic! Stupid drivers! I’m carpooling tomorrow with someone, thank god! I’m hoping I can get an apartment close enough to work that I can walk/bike or get a scooter.. Go Vespa!

Looked at 10 places today. Only 3 of them are worth considering. 2 of them don’t have any parking (Street only) and the last one is a small studio for $1300.. Way too much. Lots of stuff is coming avaliable in Westwood (omg, hot boys!)

I got news today. I _AM_ for 100% sure moving to Santa Monica. But not in the capacity I wanted/was hoping for. The idiot PM gave the job to some one else. (Apparently a bad move acording to my sources). They purchased me a new computer today, to satisfy my annoyance. And also guaranteed a pay increase equivalent to cost of living increase. I just have to call and OK the cost of living before signing the lease. I’m going to schedule a meeting with the CEO/VP’s early Friday morning to discuss my role in the company. As I’ve got a feeling it’s not really thought out too well, and I want to be sure there’s a place for me before making this move. Altough the VP’s have both expressed high regard for my work, it just feels like they aren’t sure where to place me long term.

I really want a roommate. Someone, anyone?! Robert and I are spending the whole day Friday up in SM/WeHo/Valley. I will sign a lease that day. I hope… ::crosses fingers::

I’ve been getting a feeling that Dustin is avoiding me… though he did call today to confirm we were still on for Friday. So I guess that’s a good sign.
