crispy fried brains

Anyone who wants in on the candice-burnout pool should start
placing their bets now, just for your information. This week has
been pretty long, but friday started to make up for it, went to go
and see Dawn of the Dead, great zombies, no thinking, Richard
Cheese and Johnny Cash for bits of the music. Weekend's been
pretty low, got more furniture-stuff sorted out in the new house
so that it's pretty much settled in here now. Also been frying
my brains with really badly written ancient C.

music: Tahiti 80: Wallpaper for the Soul

"ice tea"

made in a pot on the stove, unsweet, as they say. This morning
I sat outside on my back steps with the dog in the sunlight, and
it's not even too hot yet so I don't have to go buy shorts for
the summertime. Just ceiling fans so far, no deafening a/c noise
today, yesterday i had to turn them on to make it less stuffy.

note: cvsweb rocks my world, yet again.
also: gcc has more reserved words than I thought it did.

scatters

Things that are incredibly not cool: the wasp in my laundry room.
Actually having a laundry room with my own washer and dryer in
it is pretty cool though. Even if I do have to walk out the back
door and around the side of the house to get to it.

I have a new cellphone, it has a 504 number, my 985 one will
still work for another week or two, I haven't gotten around to
canceling it just yet. I've been getting headhunter calls on the
thing, even. If you want the new number drop an email or a
comment, it all goes to the same place.

Sixteen years later, I once again belong to a family with our own
business, but this time it's computers instead of oil industry support.
My parents signed it into existence yesterday.

I tried to watch Endless Sunshine last night, but got badly dizzy
about 2/3 through and didn't make it back into the theater to see
the other half. Sitting too close to a giant screen with camera-vision
effects sucks. It was cool from what I did see though.

And back to work. Because my problem at the moment is not enough
hours in the day, side projects are relegated to weekends.

high point of the day

(I am -such- a dork.)

I'm getting a first edition copy of the C bible from Margaret,
thanks to Linus's asking. Yay!

music: I listen to music 10 hours a day, no more here.

twin-label technology

Found it. Finally. (Yes, I like cheap Canadian beer. Shut up
about it already.) Now all I need is really good wings.

On March 13, 2003, at around 4:30pm, I officially left Rochester.
I suppose it's only fitting that I'm toasting this day with Molson.

So much has changed. You really learn who your friends are
after you leave a place, and the ones I kept are worth the world.

sounds like horror movie

So the other day I was outside of the walmart at the foot of the
Huey P. Long Bridge, (which is, for reference, the scariest bridge
in the world, and I could not find an appropriately ghetto scary
looking picture to link to so take my word for it or google yourself)
and there was a train braking from top to bottom, squeal-squeak
squeal-squeak, and it was the eeriest man-made non-faked noise
that I have ever heard. It literally sounded like a horror movie
effect but it was just the train. Also regarding that bridge. There
are no lights. Narrow is an understatement. And it's the highest
train bridge in the country which just happens to have lanes tacked
onto the sides of it.

at least it's wednesday night

My work week started with being woken up by a cop knocking at
my door for a noise complaint about someone else's dog.

And today I nearly blacked out due to a nice shiny blood sugar
crash at 9am. Yay not being able to walk straight and lacking
very fine motor skills for most of the day.

It's already a long week and those are just two points of it.
