For the past

For the past 2 nights, I've gone to bed around 10:30, and woke up around 4:30, completely awake. I find it pretty difficult to get back to sleep. That's around 6 hours of sleep, I guess. My dad gets by with 6 hours every day. Maybe I can too. Maybe this...

Work on Optimus

Work on Optimus was slowed down a bit last night when I opted to watch Jeepers Creepers 2 with Jaimee instead of working on him. Although my tests with the fiberglass resin have gone great. I got myself a much sought-after gmail address. I haven't the...

It was a

It was a good weekend for this kid. Friday afternoon I had my meeting with Iona, which went well, but I think was simply for show. Nothing will come of it, I imagine. Still, it was good to see everyone again and interesting to see what they're doing with...

I got soaked

I got soaked running out of work yesterday, but the import part is that I survived. Jaimee and I went to Steak 'n Shake where we were waited on by the most awesome waiter in the whole wide world. He gave Jaimee coupons for her meal and just seemed so happy...

Wednesday night =

Wednesday night = Hoops night, so Jaimee and I headed down and met Mullens and Anna's little brother Will. Jaimee got a few free slices since they ruined (kinda) her first ones. I came home, downloaded a few more albums, and worked a bit on Optimus. He's...

I have a

I have a meeting tomorrow at Iona at 1:00. Weird. I just got an email from Jeanne, whose cube was caddy corner to mine. They need my 3D services, and quickly. I hope it's something I can do, and I hope I can do it quick, and I hope it's good enough money...

I'd like to

I'd like to speak for a second about my new favorite website, [www.allofmp3.com][1]. If you have a high speed internet connection at home, it's worth checking out. I put $25 in my account there, and Jaimee and I were able to download about 10 albums worth...

I opted out

I opted out of the 2 mile jog last night since my legs really, really, really hurt. I took a long walk instead. I rented Club Dread, which was one of the most awesome movies ever made. Every time they pronounced "Penelope" phonetically, I laughed. Good...

A few more

A few more noteworthy events of this weekend. Our hot water heater exploded. I don't know why or how, but Jaimee and I had to carry buckets of steaming hot water from one room to another, making many trips before it had emptied enough to not shoot out...

What a weekend.

What a weekend. Friday after work I took Winnie to the vet for her annual check up and shots and to have her breathing checked up on. I have to take her back for X-Rays next week, which sucks. That night was Kouri's with the regular crew, plus John Zarr,...

I’d like to

I’d like to take a second to comment on the hoodlum to works at Taco Bell, and also on the guy I saw this morning driving to work in a crappy car who looked a bit down on his luck. And while I’m at it, I’d also like to comment on the guy who washes windows...

Another thing I

Another thing I hate: Road construction. Something I hate more: Road construction where all they do is put a bunch of blocks and signs and arrows up but don't actually do anything. I take Knoxville to get downtown every morning, and this morning it was 1...

A nice lazy

A nice, lazy weekend for this kid. Friday I worked on Optimus as the Dish guy came and installed my Dish system for me (by the by, DVR rocks my world and having locals again is cool), and did pretty much nothing that night. Saturday was more work on...

Goodbye, drama

At the request of Emma (who said that people should remove her from their list if her journal made the uncomfortable), I have done just that. So this is friends-only, minus her. I took her off because of her drama and because of her recent Wolfie bashing...

A big 3

A big 3 and a half day weekend comin' up. Optimus Prime, this one is for you. I've had this feeling for a long time that I need to get back into a groove of doing something that will get me recognition, money or not. I don't want to be content just going...

I haven't updated

I haven't updated in a while, so here's the lowdown on what's been goin' on these past few days. Not much. We met Polk for his birthday dinner one night, and last night we did our regular Hoops thing. I'm really enjoying the "no housework" time we've got...

The BBBQ this

The BBBQ this weekend went as well as we anticipated, even factoring in the rain and the insideness of the first family BBBQ. The family BBBQ was good times all around and people even mingled between families by the end of it. Everyone who had never seen...

Yesterday was the

Yesterday was the first company outting I've attended. It was at Hoops, so I was nice and comfortable and ready to eat some pizza. It wasn't nearly as awkward as I had anticipated, and everyone was just laughing and having a good time. It was good. I...

After getting home

After getting home from work yesterday, I changed out 3 power outlets and 4 switches to complete our kitchen. One of the switches was a pain and took forever, but I got it taken care of. Then I taped and painted some more, finishing it all just in time to...

So I got

So I got off work last night all primed and rarin' to go get some housework done. I picked up Jaimee and we headed out to Big Lots to pick up some more stuff for our BBBQ and nearly died in the process. The rain was coming down incredibly hard leaving...
