townhouses, and why I hate people.

I went today to look at townhouses to buy. I'm still considering moving to some far away land... I have about 2 months to figure out what's going to happen, I guess. The realtor was nice, and I'll feel bad not buying a place from him. Nice fella. Why I...

The attack of the crazy old lady.

Those of you who read hidethecam have heard about our encounters with the crazy old lady. Well, last night I was in Fabish's room chatting with him, and we thought we heard her singing to herself. Since Fabish's room shares a wall with her apartment, we...

The party wasn't

The party wasn't quite as horrible as I thought it was going to be. You get enough beer in the equation, and anything is fun, I guess. Thankfully Mr. Bryan J. Polk stopped by and saved me from the conversations I would have had to have otherwise with the...

It hasn't been

It hasn't been that long Since we drank to the sunset, until it was gone And down with it went our pain and fear As we slowly broke contact more and more with every beer And we passed out in each other's arms Both admitting we'd never felt better Never...

Boy did last

Boy, did last night suck. It was Alan's 21st, so I volunteered to take him out to dinner, and pay, of course. We had plans set up, but he wanted to go to the DMV and get his license updated first. It was about 4:30, so I figured he'd be home by 5:30,...

Last night was

Last night was a lot of fun. I went out with a few of the guys I knew from Iona... Andrew and Shep. We saw Zoolander, which was hilarious, and then went out to eat at Steak 'n Shake. We talked about 3D animation, Flash, and web development. Andrew's...

I got one

I got one trick or treator last night... a ninja. If my cup was half empty, I would say that all my candy went to waste. But, my cup is half full, and the bright side is that I have a bunch of candy I can eat by myself. Fabish took me to Hometown Buffet...

I am so

I am so bad at being a salesman. I am really, really horrible. I should get on the phone right now and call up my potential clients and bug them for work. I should make little memos and send them out in the hopes of landing a few more jobs. I just can't...

Guess who has

Guess who has 2 monitors again? I do, I do.

Ah... How's things

Ah... How's things, world? I am good and getting better every day. The weekend was good. I was all geared up on Friday to sit back and watch some of the scary movies they were playing on Encore, but Fuller called and asked me to Gorman's. I went, and...

It has come

It has come to my attention that people suck. Thank you. Anyway, last night I went out with Fabish and KJ to Gorman's, who were having $.50 drafts for some reason. Sure, the cups were small and plastic, but they were also $.50. We spent the first half of...

It's been an

It's been an uneventful few days. Ah well, such is life, sometimes. Things are going well for me, though. This freelancing thing is great, and I am making some fat cash. My one big client is a guy named Dave. I'm working on the graphics for a site called...

junkmachine.com

So, I'm doing this webpage for a local band and was on a quest to find a good, cheap host for him to use. In the process, I found an awesome one. They even have price freeze, which means that when I sign up, that's all they'll even charge me... my rate can...

Countdown.

I've been trying to get this job for a long, long time. It's a CD for schools in California. It's a big project, and I could really use the money. I didn't think I stood a chance in hell of getting it, but applied on a whim and sent them my webpage...

Happy Anniversary to me.

Tomorrow marks the 1 year anniversary of my Live Journal experience. I've never had such a detailed account of an entire year before. I've spent the last few nights reading through all the entries, seeing where I was a year ago and comparing it to where I...

I had a

I had a funnish night last night. I went out to a few bars with Fabish, KJ, and Callahan. I ran into quite a few people I knew, and I drank beer. That's all it takes for me to have a good time. I sent out a bill to one of my clients. I am having a stellar...

Books Books Books

So I was checking over my finances and comparing them to what I owe and what I expect to be coming in, and I actually had some cash to burn. Sure, I could have been responsible and saved it, but what fun is that? Instead I ordered a bunch of books from...

Mest, Reel Big Fish, and Goldfinger

So, I saw the big show last night, and it was awesome. Saturday was a fun day all around. My sister was having an open house, so friends and family were invited over. I spent most of the day talking to Robert's friends from college, who I sort of knew and...

I've spent the

I've spent the last few days working my ass off on these few projects I have going. It's so, so nice to be making money again. It's been too long. I made a few more cold calls to different companies begging for work. I got some interest generated. I guess...

I cut off all my hair.

I went in to get my haircut today, and as I sat in the chair the lady asked me 2 questions. 1. It's been a while since you got your haircut, huh? and 2. Who did your highlights? I had to laugh at the second question. I explained that I dyed my entire...
