Yesterday was Type O Negative. It was pretty good. A perfect beautiful night for it. The show was at Jannis Landing, a great place for outdoor stuff.

I remember when I first moved out here that the gf and her brother and his gf and I went down on Central and drank at a few bars and passing by it and them telling me about the place and stuff. I remember not getting a good look at it and thinking that was neat. Sometime I should go downtown and walk around just to see stuff.

Anyway, the show was pretty good, the shirt I wanted to get was sold out in my size, so I got a different one and parking was less than I thought it would be and I had enough money to go to toxic hell afterwords and get a couple of burritos.

I am definitely going to move. I got a loan against my 401k to pay for the move and so now I need to get serious about packing and throwing shit away now. I need to do this. I need to. I have spent way too long in that hell hole.

I want a house. Dammit.

I saw this house
pretty yellow house
, and I thought it was perfect!

And he believes in using organics and no pesticides! Fucking even better!

I am excited! I really hope I get it. It is just down the street from where Carol lives too.

I hope I hope I hope. I need to be serious about this and get my shit together and start packing and cleaning. I need to.

I am interviewing for a voice services supervisor position in the company on Monday I think. Hopefully everything is good and I do well. I need to get a couple of report covers and get my resume all printed out and ready for the do.

Go Dennis!

Today’s public figures can no longer write their own speeches or books, and there is some evidence that they can’t read them either.

Today I got notices that my book and my sk3 case arrived so I decided to go pick that up from the post office before I got ready for work and on my way I stopped by Subway to pick up a veggie sandwich. I noticed that my radiator light was blinking so after I picked up my sandwich I ran into Walgreens and got some 50/50 radiator fluid. The reserve well was empty so I filled it to the fill line. Backtracking a bit yesterday when I was applying the Eagle sticker
Eagle sticker
I had my car on so I could listen to some tunes and I could smell the fluid. So when I had it all applied I popped the hood and the fluid was coming out from the reservoir cap. It was weird because the thermostat wasn’t showing that the fluid wasn’t over heating. So I am going to try replacing the cap when I get paid and see if that is the issue, and if not I guess I will have to take it in to have them see what is going on with the darned thing.

Work tonight has been pretty harsh for me. I have had a lot of escalations tonight, and I had 4 in a row a little bit before lunch. A lot of them have been people wanting an earlier tech. Farking bastages!

Last night was another night that I didn’t get to sleep until around six or seven in the morning. I tried. I tried. I think it was a mix of caffene and being in the middle of a project.

On the blog I had a PHPBB forum in place, and of course people have built scripts to join forums and then post viagra ads all over the place. Well I put in a script where people had to register before posting, so then they used the account website to post their crap spam. So I found a script that would automatically ban any IP and kill the account if the web address was put in the field upon registratoin, and then I removed the field from the form, so basically anyone running a bot would try to fill in the field which a human wouldn’t see, and instant ban. I still got humans I didn’t know sign up for new accounts. I got a few requests last night. I was fed up with it, so I decided to look for an optoin, perferably something that would automatically create an account through the WordPress stuff, I didn’t find any, but I did find a plugin that was a forum built within WP, so I installed it, got it working, and the links within the forum werent’ working, so I decided fuck it, and removed the plugin and also deleted the PHPBB forums as well. It was like 5 am by then and if I didn’t remove, then I would be up all morning trying to fix the link issue… No one ever uses the forums anyway, so fuck it, they are gone. Why bother worring about something I don’t even use.

So, ya I think that a lot of what is keeping me up is the fact that I drink caffene way too late in the day and that keeps me up. This is another sign that I am getting old. Caffene used to not have this affect on me. So what I am going to have to do is stop drinking coffee when I work, I am going to have to stick with my one diet mountain dew and my uncafenated green and jasmine teas, if not water. I am also going to start taking melentonin when I get home as well. That way I am changning my sleep cycle at the physical level as well. Hopefully this plan works out. I am tired of falling asleep at 7 am and waking up around 2 or three. I need to go out and run errands tommorow.

When I was in high school, some of the music I used to listen to Pestilence and Cryptic Slaughter. I remember that I was in this creative writing or speaking class or somethign like that and one of our assignments was to take different poems and then interpert them and stand in front of the class and say them. Well, one of the assignments I used a couple of the songs from Pestilence’s Consuming Impulse album. The lyrics were in the cassete fold out, so it was pretty easy. I don’t remember what songs I used, probably Dehydrated and Reduced to Ashes for sure. I remember people writing in my year book about that and also my rendition of Barnes and Barnes When You Die. This one was where the song was playing, and I had to act out the song. It was pretty cool. Lyrics:
When you die
You stop drinking beer
When you die
You stop being here
When you die some people cry
When you die we say goodbye

I love how Barnes and Barnes ends their songs with Yeah.

Anyway, just something I remember from school that was positive.

So as I mentioned in my voice post my sister is pregnant yet again…

So she was upset because I didn’t reply back to her email she sent to announce… (it was a picture of her holding a pregnancy test thing with her tummy sticking out…) and I told her I didn’t because I didn’t know what to say. Which I didn’t. I told her that she is doing what a good Mormon woman does and that is pop out kids, but in a nicer way. Even though I said it in a nice way she took it like so that is what you think that mormons do is have babies, and I was like, well yes. Shit they want you to have as many kids as possible so they can be a happy family in their version of heaven forever adn evere and into eternity adn there after.

This morning I had a really weird dream… It is going to be difficult for me to explain it, it is not going to make much sence. I was in New York, I think Upper Manhatten, by the water but I didn’t see it. I think I was with a work group out on an activity or something like that. We were outside on the sidewalk. I remember something about signs being wrong or something and someone in my group stating don’t worry about it we will fix it. We were delayed for some reason with meeting a boat or ship or something and someone mentinoing that it is raining really hard in lower manhatten and that is why they are delayed and i remember thinking to myself that Manhatten must be really big because I don’t see a cloud in the sky. I remmeber that the company was going to feed us and they took us into some Asian restraunt where there was almost nothing for me to eat. I was looking at the menu and feeling really disapointed. I remember wanting to see a couple of items, I can’t remember the first one, but the second one was crawfish!! I wantd to see the crawfish. I remember how red they looked, they were completely peeled like shrimp and I was trying to decide what to get. I woke up shortly after that, and I thought to myself the rest of the day, why would I want to look at crawfish? I found that to be the most oddest thing.

I found out a couple of hours ago about the school in Colorado. It is really sureal sometimes. I have been in Baily a few times before and knew people who lived there. It is only about an hour away from where I spent most of my teen age years.

There are deffinately some things from this site I want! 🙂

Two months until my birthday! Then I turn the big 33. Wee! Maybe, ok. Ya. Whatever.

Today I got the glass replacement vessel for my blender. I started cleaning my turtle tank too. I got the filter completely cleaned out (that takes an hour in its self) and the tank scrubbed out. All I need to do now is just drain, wash, and refill the tank and get the calcium deposits off the heating unit.

Great places in St. Pete!
Christmas house of horrors
big boat
Big fucking boat!

Girls have got to have their toys! I really really like the internet enabled butterfly. I am thinking about purchasing that one… 😉

Today at work fucking sucks! I am getting nothing but escelations today….

So today I went to Target to go grocery shopping. I was really disapointed with their lack of selection. They were worse than the Albertsons that is near my house. Target is not a good option for me. I guess I will have to try the Albrertsons in St Pete next time and see how they are.

There are about 12 or so albums that I downloaded that ceme in a bin/cue. I hate these things with a passion because of all the time it takes to convert these to individual mp3 files. First of all if it is in a .flac or .ape file I have to use jetaudio to convert them to a .wav then I have to modify the .cue to point to the new extention. Then I have to use Nero to make that .bin an image file and then use Nero’s Image drive and mount the image and then use CDeX to rip that image into .mp3. And so far either Nero doesn’t like the .cue or locks up when I try to load the queue or something else goes on. It is a bitch of a process. I wish that there was one step. Bah!

Today while I was at Target I bought one of those canister water filters.
new pitcher
I haven’t gotten the chance to even wash it yet because I arrived home 20 minutes before I was supposed to go to work and had just enough time to change clothes, put away my refrigerated adn frozen stuff and send Mary a couple of emails. I need to buy a new blender pitcher for my blender, the thin plastic broke months ago, and that is another thing that Target didn’t carry. Ok, I just bought one off of the manafacture’s website.

I have gained weight again. I had too many sweets and goodies in DC despite all the walking I did, I still gained weight. I need to go back to walking again, and I need to stop eating so many sweets and so much food! That is the big thing right there! I made a batch of mac and cheeze on Tuesday night, and I have already consumed it all! This recipe filled a 8x8x2 glass baking pan, since Tuesday I also have had two hot “ham” and cheeze sandwiches, a quart of rice dream cocoa marble fudge, a primal stick, lots and lots of water, a small bag of bbq chips, a blueberry bar, a little bag of peanut butter crackers, and some other stuff I can not remember right now. I am a pig! p-i-g – pig!

So, I need to walk more, I need to eat less, expecially at night, and I need to start taking those herbal diet stuff again, and I need to start doing the coconut oil as well.

I hate this slow constant climb in weight. I need a tape worm I think!

Personal link I need for wordpress…

DC seems like just a dream. I miss Mary and DC. I did get to video chat with her for a brief couple of minutes yesterday. She is a really special woman to me. 🙂

Today I slept for most of the day. I am feeling a bit better (coughing less). My side still hurts. I think I have bruised something or pulled soomething. I am no liking it at all…

I have a job I have to do on Monday, I have to go to a client’s house and install Word, that will be a quick and easy $40, and I also have another client which needs my help, so I will be making more money there too. That sould be nice after spending a lot of money in DC.

I wish that there was an Ethiopian restarunt in St Pete, I found some recipes online and am going to try them out. I already have a lot of the basic ingredients like lentals and split yellow peas. i am going to use some Garamm Masala and curry for spices because they seem to be the closest thing to what they aer asking for spices. Maybe throw in some clove as well. I hope I wake up tommorow in time to try to make some lentals, split peas, bread. Pictures will be forth coming I am sure.

According to this article Wal-Mart is going more organic. What do you think about this? The article it’s self focuses on how Wal Mart is going to change the fish providors, which is a good thing, I hope that Wal Mart also starts to carry more natural and vegan items as well. Although they do have a better choice than I would have imagined and they do carry items that my closest health food store doesn’t carry, I think that they are looking more twards profit than anything, hoping to cash in on people like me. I can see the positive and negatave aspects of that. What do you think?
