You would think after a year of quitting the cigarettes, I would be in the clear. Nope. Temptation got the best of me. :( I going to quit again, of course, but I'm sorry I even started again. I feel like crap, my throat hurts, and just feel physically drained, which I did not previously when I did the bad smoking thing. I guess that's good incentive to quit for good for real!

But I still want to smoke, which is pitiful.

Song of the day is Everything About You by Ugly Kid Joe. I am full of self-loathing, and I hate myself.

Did anyone rush out and buy the new Def Leppard album? Well, I did. ;) I haven't listened to it yet, though. Been too bust running around to devote myself to it. I am looking forward to it though.


Stick it is the worst movie I've ever watched. Yuck! I thought a movie about young female gymnasts would be pretty funny, but the best parts were in the previews.


OK, that wasn't really a spoiler, but damn that movie sucked. And, yeah, it's not too topical.

Yes, Jackie, that is the very movie! Not as good as I thought. Plus, the character I thought was the main character (based on the picture on the cover of the DVD) was actually not the main character, which disappointed me. But I might have confused the two characters. I thought the girl from "Waiting" was the main character, but she wasn't.

I appreciate the support. I almost didn't say anything about falling off, but I'm trying to be honest in the blog and all. Except for certain delicate situations, I try to be honest with what I am thinking/feeling. *shrug* I'm sure anyone who reads this knows that anyways. :)

Latest piece of happy University of Florida related e-mail that came through. I mean, it's good that they keep us informed, but I'm not driving all the way up to Gainesville for peanuts...even if they are big peanuts! Go »

25-IV-2008(ii) or A Look Inside My Head

I've been obsessing about something I said, and I want to blog about it. Here is what I am now thinking, along with added special what's going on inside my head commentary! All italics are internal monologues/voices in my head, and regular text is the other side of my thinking process. 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 »

22-II-2007 or Speaking of crap...

I wrestled with not saying this, but I've been transparent about everything thus far, so here's the latest medical drama. I getting a colonoscopy tomorrow. That involves a lot of "cleansing" this evening, and a lot of I can't eat anything today and tomorrow. Go »

13-VII-2014 or What The Hell Am I Doing With My Life

Title refers to a line from the Lonely Island song "After Party" as I have no questions about what I am doing with my life. I feel like I have three or so on-line communities that I post to, apologizing for the long absence, and claiming I'm going to start coming back and not ignoring the valuable friends I haven't spoken to in ages. And, typically, this lasts a few weeks to a month, and then I am doing other things, or getting busy, or just feeling blah, and there I go dropping off the face of the Earth for another extended absence.

2-VIII-2006 or Why am I so angry?

Yeah, I decided to go with putting in the date. It makes me feel chronological and stuff. Welcome to Day 2 of the blog! Go »
