Fun day yesterday.

Fun day yesterday. I finally got to eat at a Chinese Buffet, which I had been craving for weeks. After work I went to Alan's for Simpsons and beer, a tradition which neither of us has taken part in since leaving the old apartment. Brynn and Angie came by...

So even with

So, even with the bad news this morning presented me with, it's going to be a good week. I can feel it in my veins. 1. The break in. With the rips in my top and the water damage on my carpet, I'll be getting a new top, new carpet, new CD player, and new...

Break in

Break in #2: So, my Jeep was broken into last night and they stole my CD player, worth about $30. They left my digital camera, worth about $300. Smart criminals, I'll tell you what. My back window on the Jeep was ripped to shreds, which would normall...

The moment I've been dreading

I don't know if I documented the last Barb encounter in this here journal, but in case I didn't, I'll do it again. Barb tried really hard to be my friend again after a long time of being anything but. I wasn't eager or willing to be her friend again,...

I went out

I went out to my parent's house pretty early this morning to give Winnie the chance to run around and be a stupid dog for a little while. As I pulled up, I saw the neighborhood Chow who runs around seeing everyone in the neighborhood occassionally. They...

Victory is (sort of) served!

After calling Best Buy and bitching for the last year or so, I finally just kept saying to people "let me talk to your supervisor" until finally some guy said "I'm an executive. There is no supervisor." I told the guy everything I had done to get this rain...

The house is

The house is a-go. The bank has approved our original offer (made in January, believe it or not), and now it's just a matter of when we get the house. We still have a couple of hoops to jump through, but the house is mine, all mine. Yee haw. Not much else...

I just talked

I just talked to the guy at The Screen Savers again. Apparently my project is still on a waiting list to be approved or shot down. I don't know when I'll hear anything, but hopefully soon. I'm getting anxious. The house situation is annoying. We're almost...

In a word

In a word, House of 1000 Corpses was good. In another word, it was disappointing. In a few words, it wasn't what I expected at all. I had heard that Rob Zombie was trying to make a 70's horror movie. For some reason, I immediately thought it was going to...

My ass is

My ass is burning. My legs are in such agony. In an effort to end this silly diet thing and hit my 170 mark before June 1st, I've started doubling my normal work out. After my 4 mile jog today, my legs feel like they're going to fall off. It's ridiculous....

Last night was

Last night was super fabulous. Fabish's wife called me for the first time in history to invite me to their house for dinner. I brought some beer and we ate corned beef and cabbage, which was a first for me. And corn and mashed potatoes, but I had eaten...

I knew I

I knew I had 1 more thing I wanted to mention in that last boring, crappy entry. I ran into Jerry today at the grocery store. Jerry was one of my team leaders when I worked for Iona. Real nice guy. I had heard that things were looking up for Iona after a...

Kick ass.

It's going to

It's going to be a boring day. The errands I needed to run have been ran, and I can't get a hold of anyone for potential jobs. I'm thinking today will be devoted towards creative activities for yours truly, but can't think of anything I want to do....

House update: They've

House update: They've all but accepted our offer on the house. It's pending approval on estimated closing costs, which they should have by this afternoon. Then, hopefully, they'll accept our offer and we'll have a closing date soon. It was a pain, but it's...

TurboTax sucks ass.

TurboTax sucks ass. $60 for this piece of shit software. Like I can afford that. Sure, it helped me do my taxes, but for $60 it shouldn't be loaded up with advertisements for other software. It put all those annoying shortcuts on my desktop, like "Special...

On the agenda

On the agenda today: do my taxes. Do a portrait. Make a few phone calls. Watch Battle of the Sexes. I just bought TurboTax, but man, do I ever hate doing my taxes. I'll put it off as long as I can. Since getting the email and phone call about The Screen...

What a disappointing

What a disappointing night last night. I didn't go out like I was supposed to. No one called me. Sad me. Instead I watched TV. Specifically, I watched 2 very disappointing sequels. Blade 2, which was lame, and Cube 2: Hypercube which was ultra-lame. How...

Yeah so I

Yeah, so I just called the guy at the Screensavers. He has to get things cleared with the higher-ups, but I may, in fact, be making an appearance on live, national TV! Probably in May if things work out. Go me!

So I got

So, I got a link from [http://www.memepool.com][1], and with it came a lot of other good stuff. The Screen Savers possibility, and this: A friend of mine emailed me your link, beautiful work! My name is Jonathan and I am the Editor of a Design, Art and...
