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.

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... >;-)

I had to do it! When you find it, you'll know. :) Me, a narcissist? Go »

10-VII-2006 or Thinking too hard

I'm thinking too hard about it. I'm letting my fears get the best of me. I need to relax and just deal with things from a position of confidence, not weakness. Go »

30-VI-2009 or Is it wrong to be happy?

I take joy in finding out that the ex that f-ed around on me 3 times while we were dating now appears to be divorced from the first guy she married, and is now apparently married to the guy she f-ed around with all three times we were dating. I am happy because a) she obviously really really liked the guy and b) now I know that it really was her, and not me. I beat the sh!t Go »

3-XI-2006 or Do Not Drink Alcoholic Beverages When Taking This Medicine

Does anyone listen to that? Really? ;) Are there any girls out there who give doctors (or nurses, or other medical professionals) a hard time when they get medications that should not be taken if you "are or could be pregnant"? Go »

25-VIII-2006 or All good things...

Last night was the last night of the regular kickball season. The playoff tournament is going to take place while I am in Denmark, so I am done. I will miss kickball. Go »

24-I-2006 or Holy crap! I'm stealing internet!

There's really no appropriate place to say, "Hey! I bought a wireless USB adapter, and I'm borrowing my neighbor's internet access!" But, I am! Go »
