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. ;)

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.

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... >;-)

12-I-2009 or 1337?

I done got my computer hacked this weekend, which makes me angry. I've been running around today (at work) changing up passwords...which means I'll probably forget most of them, and be using the change password button on most of the places I hang out at to change them AGAIN. Go »

9-VIII-2006 or You never go ass to mouth!

OK, there was clearly no need for that, but I have Clerks 2 on the brain. Good movie. Not great like the original, but few sequels equal the original. Go »

7-IV-2009 or Back In Action

I'm not good at getting in here regularly. It's not that I don't love you all as much as I used to, because I totally do! I just have problems staying focused on stuff lately. Go »

Things I Learned From the People's Choice Awards 2018

Just looking over the results, and I saw a few things that I wanted to comment/ask about. Feel free to clarify and/or put in your new revelations! :) 1) What the heck is Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments and why am I just hearing about this?? Go »

2-VIII-2007 or I Don't Have an Aunt Flo...

but I had issues! Unfortunately, last week went to Hades, thanks to an unscheduled visit from Uncle Intestinal Discomfort. I was pinned to my bathroom from Wednesday night into Saturday morning, with no internet access, so I was unable to even try to make a showing in the GOO finals. Go »

20-II-2007 or Holy crap!

This is a most Holy of Holy days!!! I finally got a GOO before anyone else!! I'm #1! Go »
