Links Links Links!!

Ok, well this is going to be a post of a lot of links….

First, I love this TV show called. “Low Carb and Lovin’ It” And there’s this really cute boy on there, who I thought was gay. guess he’s not though, but anyways, I found his blog and it’s very amusing… I highly recommend listening to StellaStyle. He’s also has some really good photos.

Ok, and I know you all love PORN! So here’s a great website for you. Now, I’m sure I’ve all heard me complain about how you can’t RENT porn here in the OC… Well this site is just like netflix! How amusing. If I watched enough porn to justify it, I’d totaly sign up, but at least now I can rent porn for a weekend or two at a time when I want too.

Speaking of netflix… Here’s a better replacement for it… It costs about $2 more per month, but they send money back to local movie places.. IE: GreenCine is partnered with a few key organizations like the San Francisco Film Arts Foundation, the Academic Film Archive of North America, Consolidated Works and the San Francisco Silent Film Festival, all devoted to keeping independent, international and classic film alive. So yeah… I’m thinking I might sign up for them.

Ok, I’ve known about this place for a long while, but now I found the website and really want to go! Uncliamed Baggage! I want to take a road trip to the store sometime.

And lastely… Here’s some amusing Post Cards

Umm, so what’s been up in my life? Well as usually not too much.

I got an interview offer to a place up in Santa Ana… I called and told them I wasn’tinterested… It was some random job involving more business then I care for right now.

I also have a meeting set up at work with the new Business opps guy… We’re going to talk about some projects I’m going to be taking over. That could be exciting. Though he mentioned PHP, which I haven’t done anything with in a long while, so I’m kinda nervous about that.

I’ve started my diet again… It’s going ok.. I’m limiting my calories, and also going to start going to the gym more. I went monday, or was it tuesday… Either way, I’m sore as hell and can’t lift anything with any wieght.. It sucks ass. I guess I pushed myself too much. Going to go back tonight and just do the elyptical.

Going to retake my test tomorrow. Hopefully I can get those 5 points that I missed last time. Gah! I better.

There’s only two more episodes of GG this season. I’m so SAD that it’s ending.. I must make a trip up to LA sometime and do the whole WB tour…. Maybe May 30th, cause I’ve got the day off and Andrew should be out of school by then. That way we don’t have to miss anything.

I’m very excited about going back to Iowa this summer. I really hope that I get the chance too… Things that I want to do while back so far include:

Mitigwa (Maybe even go down to Wapello for an OA Ceremony)

State Fair




Java Joes

Art Center


Blank Park Zoo

Porn Shop

The G&G’s house.

Chat Noir

Reiman Gardens

And of course Hot tubbing/swimming at the Parents!

Well, that’s about it for now. Night all.

Zetta Bytes

I got my Zetta Bytes back today…. I’m happy as hell about that….

Other things still aren’t going well at all… Going to go talk to Andrew tomorrow to see how things with us are going to work out. I’m a bit pissed at all his friends, who claimed they liked me… Clearly it was all a lie because they were damn fast in telling him how horrible I am. Fuck you all.

I wish I could move back to Iowa and continue to make what I do now… I could afford a nice 3 bedroom 2.5 bath house in Ames… I found one built in ’99 and it’s so cute, and on 2 acres.

I’ve decided that I hate people in general. I love my house in Iowa because of that… You are secluded enough that you don’t have to deal with people, yet close enough to everyone that it’s good… I don’t think I could live on a farm or anything though.

I really hope my PU’s don’t sell the house. I’d eventually like to buy it from them and live there.


I want to take my SECUR test today, but Sean didn’t call me back yesterday, so who knows if I’ll get the chance too.

Speaking of, I talked to this cute guy on myspace today from South Carolina, he’s like way into Secure computing and shit too and he told me about this SANS conf in San Diego coming up.. I really want to go, but it’s $3,000! And my company deff won’t pay for that!

I think I’ll make a road trip back to Iowa in August to go the state fair and to get the rest of my shit…. Perhaps I’ll make appointments for interviews while I’m back. I think I’ll drag some people along too, I know for sure that JonJon wants to go, anyone else?

Laters all.

your palms are sweaty and I’m barely listening to last demands

i’m staring at the asphalt wondering what’s buried underneath where i am

you seem so out of context in this gaudy apartment complex

a stranger with a door key explaining that i am just visiting

and i am finally seeing why i was the one worth leaving

the district sleeps alone tonight after the bars turn out their lights

and send the autos swerving into the loneliest evening

and i am finally seeing why i was the one worth leaving


I think I’m going to buy an iPod and a new camera.

I’ve got the 40gb 4th Gen iPod on reserve at pcmall for $350, with my CAP discount. Then I added in the 2 year service agreement which was another $40. But I might take that out, do you really think that I need the extra year of service? I dunno.

I also added a PowerShot S410 in there for $300. I really like that camera, but I dunno if I should spend the money on it or not. We’ll see. I’d really like a new camera. But I dunno if I should be spending the $300 right now. I have to pay for my plane tickets back to Iowa here soon. I’ve also been thinking about getting my bonds from the PU’s and cashing them in, and just wasting the money and buy myself something nice. Or maybe I’ll hold them and use them as a downpayment on a car. Who knows.

Speaking of cars. I spent like 4 hours on the phone with JonJon tonight talking to him about something he was depressed about. I think I cheered him up and that was good. ๐Ÿ™‚ I like making people happy.

I told him that if he wanted to, he could come over tomorrow morning and watch a couple QaFs with me before he has to go to work. We’ll see.

Also Friday night I think we’re going to go to Ozz, and then Saturday while Andrew’s doing checking JonJon and I are going to make some road trips around to find stuff. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve been wanting to find somewhere where I can go horse back riding up into the mountians, and somewhere that will let you keep the horses long enough to see the sun set. I doubt such a thing exists in this stupid fucking state.

Tonight was amusing. Well that is after the annoyances. First, I took a “short cut” so that I woudln’t have to deal with the I-5 traffic. Yeah, well that short cut took me an hour. Fuck that shit. then I got there and ended up having to wait 1.5 hours before getting to go to dinner. Oh well.

We went to karaokeย laters that night and taht was amusing as hell. Though the stupid sound system kept crashing and shit. Andrew and BM did ‘shoop’. Very funny! DANCING BM!

People kept thinking I was a new student. Very annoying cause they kept trying to get me to dance and shit. Bah! Fuckers

Umm, I fucked up my timesheet program by using task_name instead of task_id as a group by function, so now instead of having each Project/Task total seperate each task is totalled the same… Here’s an example:

Project1/Task1 Has 10 hours submitted

Project2/Task1 Has 4 hours submitted

Right now, it’s say that BOTH Project1/Task1 AND Project2/Task1 has 14 hours submitted instead of reporting correctly. Very annoying. Though it should be an easy fix… Just not in the mood to do it right now.

I have 89 songs left in my playlist before I’ve listened to ALL my music! Yay!

I also added a new plugin to give me the total words for each post at the bottom of the post, it’s it hot?

JonJon asked the other day when he gets to go back to Iowa. It made me feel good that someone actually wants to see what Iowas like and see what I’m always talking about…. At least I know people are listening. I wish I could take a group of people back to show them the Garden and Frathouse and Redlight and to see the town where I grew up and where I went to school. Though I’m sure they’d all be bored out of thie rminds. Whatever.

Whatelse? Nothing really.

Laters all.


Well this weekend sure has had it’s share of ups and downs…. Thankfully it ended on a really good up.

It all started Friday night. My flight was delayed and my mom wasn’t going to pick Andrew up tell after she picked me up from the airport. When I called and told him that she wasn’t going to pick him up before he sounded very annoyed, and in turn that annoyed me. Then every time I called him to tell him that our flight was delayed some more, he seemed even more annoyed. Which, again in turn annoyed me more.

Well, before I get to much farther. I suppose I should bitch about how horrible the flights were. I got off work and drove up to LAX, which was amazingly easy. There wasn’t hardly any traffic. So that was good. Anyways, the first flight was alright, besides the stupid people on it. I don’t remember exactly what they did or who they were, but I know there was someone annoying on that flight sitting next to me. Grrr. And plus Delta’s leg room sucks ass! It’s so tiny.

Then I ended up spending like 2.5 hours in Cincinati (sp) which was hellish. Then our flight was delayed boarding because the plane wasn’t there yet. (How this could be, I don’t know because it was coming from a garage). Then we boarded and started to pull away from the gate… Then stopped.. And pulled back in and sat there for an hour. VERY annoying. And the worst part was that it was a brand new aircraft, just delivered the day before. So yeah, that really sucked. And the whole time there was this STUPID child infront of me bouncing back and forth in his seat so I couldn’t sleep.

Anyways, finally got into DM and went and picked up Andrew. Then drove back to my house. Thankfully the night ended VERY well, and we ended up going to bed about 1:30 or so.

Got up the next morning about 7:00 and I made him breakfast then took him to work. Drove back to PC where Sheila and Dwaine picked me up and we went to the Machine Shed. The food there was so good and the protions were HUGE!! After that Beak and Neil and I went to the half price book store where I bought a personal finance book. Since I’m now raking in the money I should know what to do with it don’t you think?

After that they took me back to PC where I got ready to go pick Andrew up from work. Got there and him Court and this other guy went to Culvers. I had an oreo shake, which I really didn’t think was that great. After that Andrew and I went to Old Navy and got my paycheck then we went off and did other things.

I think we went to Saylorville then went back to my house. After that we went and saw Super-Sized which was a realy good movie. From there we went Downtown….

Which is where the down starts. On the way down there Andrew said something about me buying him a drink. Which really annoyed me, I know that it shouldn’t have but it did. I mean I had spent $400 on a ticket to come see him, plus I was paying for parking at the airport, $24, plus I had paid for the movie, $14, and I was going to pay for Redlight, $20. All while he had only paid for my shake at Culbers ($3). It really annoyed me that he asked me to pay for it, then when we got there I asked him to buy me a drink and he refused which just annoyed me any more. Lets just say that we didn’t speak for the rest of the night, or again tell about 8:30 Sunday morning.

It was really stupid, but it’s just been a culmination of 2 weeks of fighting. And it’s really hurt me and I’m sure him. But I guess you could say that was really the straw that broke the camels back. I hated sitting there all night not talking to him. And I kept trying to talk to him, but all that could come out of either of our mouths was very annoyed, short responces.

What hurt the most though was going to bed, sleeping there with our backs to each other, just saying “Good night” and not kissing good night or saying I love you or anything. It was just “Good night”.

Then this morning there was more fighting and after a long discussion Andrew suggested that we “Take a break” from our relationship… I’ll spare everyone the details right now because I don’t want to break down crying here in my office. But lets just say that there was lots of crying and talking about it.

We eventually decided that we just need to be strong and work through it, it’s hard to know how your relationship is going when you are so far apart. We agreed to have a good rest of the day, because by this time it was like 11:50 and we were supposed to be in Waukee at noon.

And in fact we did have a GREAT rest of the day. We went over to Courts fams house and ate lunch then went to the parade where it was ungodly hot, but still tons of fun.

After the parade I left, and Andrew and I had to say a quick goodbye because of all the straights around. I really wish that we could have had a more private/longer goodbye this time. Last time we had to do a quick one too and I hated it. Same with this time. ๐Ÿ™

Well I left there and went back home, hoping to be able to eat something before leaving again, but the turkey wasn’t done so we just left. Thankfully my dad drove the truck so it wasn’t ungodly slow like it was Friday night when my mother drove. I guess they are going to come out here sometime this summer to see whats going on and stuff. I have no idea what they’ll do or anything, but I guess it’s cool. It’ll be a good vacation for them.

Well anyways, I got to the airport about 4:25 and was checked in and through secirity by 4:30. lol. There wasn’t a line anywhere! So I sat there for the hour before we boarded just doing nothing and watching the planes. The place was DEAD! But there was a fire drill while I was there, that was crazy!

The first flight wasn’t that bad. I had the whole row to myself. 2 isle 2. It was really nice. I read my San Diego mag the whole flight. It had a list of top 101 things to do in San Diego and I want to do them all! I have a feeling there will be lots of road trips to SD in the coming years.

I also found a special for the theater down there, for $110 you can get into 6 shows. And they have things like Mamma Mia, Rent, Stomp, and tons of other really good things that I want to see playing. Of course the $110 is like the worst seats in the house, but row A was only $300. So I’m sure something in the middle is very reasonable. We’ll see. I’m going to call or go online to see if there’s any deals like that up here though, because I’d hate to have to drive to SD everytime I want to go to a show.

The second flight was on a giant 767, we were 30 minutes late getting out, but only 10 minutes late getting in. So I was 10 minutes late to work, which wasn’t too bad. I would have been ontime, but the guy at the Parking check out couldn’t find Iowa on his map. lol. Not like it matters if I was on time or not, There’s only been one phone call all night and I took care of it in like 5 minutes. So that’s good. ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, laters all.

Graduation… Again.

So this weekend has been really long and hard. But really good too, cause I got to spend lots of time with the Drew Bear.

Friday night, we finally met up late and did stuff, oh. I think we came back to my house and just hung out there. Either way it was fun to just hang out with the drew bear and do stuff. Drove him back to Court’s late.

Saturday I sat around all morning and then went to work from 12-8. That was hellish, and I found out that I work 1-10 next week. again, hellish. I was checking the whole time on Saturday. Mandy and Jessica came through my line and I felt like they were both a little rude. But whatever.

I aslo saw Kristen from my Yucatan class there. We talked shortly about the hellish class that it is.

It was MAD Busy there all day long. I wanted to shoot myself. Though thankfully I didn’t have to fold shit, which was nice. I have a feeling that next weekend will be different. As in, I’ll be folding the whole time, not cashing.

After work I met up with andrew and Court and there was TONS of drama with the weather. We finally made it downtown and then sat there forever waiting for Mike and Jenny to show up. And then when they finally did show up, they didn’t even stay very long. IT was good to see Mike though, and I know Andrew wants to hang out with him again. Hopefully he’ll get a chance too.

We finally got home shortly after 11. After driving through some HELLISH rain storms. IE, You could NOT AT ALL see the road. It was scary as hell! Though not as scary as when I drove through NM.

Got home, watched a stupid movie (Cheaper By the Dozen) and then went to bed. It was so nice to sleep with him again.

Got up Sunday morning and did stuff around the house. Then went to Graduation where I saw tons of stupid people who I hate, and a few people who I used to have crushes on… I kinda wish I could go back to HS and be a little more slutty going through it, And maybe even act on a few of my crushes. Mark Triplett was there too, he’s so hot! And has a REALLY hot ass! Rarr.

Andrew and I actually sat right behind him. I didn’t realize it tell we stood up for the gradutation people to come in. The speaches were stupid, as usual and one girl cried.

It was only 45 minutes though, so that was really nice! Much better then the 2 hours for mine.

After that we went home and hung out with the fam and ate tons of food. There was one cute boy who came to the party. We left shortly after 6 to head to beaks. Though I guess all the REALLY cute boys showed up after we left. ๐Ÿ™

Hung out with beak and neil for a long time, watched the simpsons and then Malcom. Both very crazy episodes. Also ate dinner and CheeseCake Factory Cheesecake… YUMMY to both!

Broke after that and took Andrew back to Court’s. Then I drove back to Ames… Back to Polk City and Back to Ames.

I’m so happy that Andrew is back in town. This summer will be good! ๐Ÿ™‚

And I can’t wait tell Wed to give him all his presents!

OH!!! And if anyone wants to go road tripping with us this weekend, get in contact ASAP! We want to go to either MN, Omaha, or KC.

Let us know !!!!!

Laters all.
