I really really really hate birthdays! Just a reminder that you've been around another year, and that your time is shorter by 365 days (or so). :( I'm cranky like that.

I was hoping to have something miraculous to say today, but I really don't. Work has been trying...trying to get on my nerves! ;) I'm really busy, and my boss keeps coming up with new things for me to do. My co-worker tells me he's got another project that I am "volunteered" for, that he wasn't said anything to me about. Not like I didn't already ask if this project was going to require anything from me, and was told no. I love collaborating with other faculty members...although, it's not realyl collaborating, since I end up doing most of the work... :(

Song of the day: You know...I've had this one song stuck in my head all day...but I don't know what it is...and I can't find it from looking around on line. New song... Faster Pussycat - "Nonstop to Nowhere"

I'm on the lame train
I got a first class ticket on the nonstop to nowhere
Where it takes me I don't know
I guess the tracks you make are your own
It's like a chain gang going I know the exit
But my problems seem to follow me
Wherever I go
Nonstop to nowhere

That's 80's hair bands at their worst! ;)

Alternate song of the day: Skid Row - "Get the F%^k Out" heh. ;)

Two Replies to 6-IX-2007 or Not again! :(

Sorry I missed your birthday on the site homepage, Aaron. Something must have gone very wrong with that code. :-( But you have yourself a happy one, and I hope to see you online this weekend.

I really really really hate birthdays! Just a reminder that you've been around another year...

And I knew that. Which is why I didn't play my usual role in starting a birthday discussion for you! ;-[)

Actually, I kind of quit that habit once I'd been here for a few of the same birthdays... ;-p But there's always the chance to resurrect a birthday discussion -- and now, there's one for you, too... >;-)

14-VII-2009 or Oh. Didn't I Mention That??

Ha! I just saw the funniest thing, but I shouldn't make mention of it, since it involves images of me online on Youtube cursing and being a total dick. It's real funny, but of course, if I speak of it, or name the event, then everyone will see me being a weirdo, and they might think that's really how I roll. Go »

6-IV-2007 or I am so high, I can see heaven.

That has got to be the worst line from the worst theme song in movie history (IMNSHO)! It's so bad, it's the song of the day! "Hero" by Chad Kroeger (Nickleback lead singer) and Josey Scott (Saliva lead singer), from the movie Spiderman. Go »

2-X-2008 or Oh, YEAH!

That's why I stopped playing the Devil in Rock Block! I knew there was some reason... Go »

12-VII-2009 or Dance With The Dead In My Dreams

Hey, everybody! Long time, no hear! How are you all doing today? Go »

4-VI-2008 or I want to write, but I must sleep

As the title states. Tired. Confused. Go »

20-IX-2006 or Man, those Samoans sure are a surly bunch.

That was the punchline to a Bloom County comic I read many years ago. It always cracks me up...which makes no sense, really. Go »
