Plays Well With Others

During the hiatus – Day 2

I had so much to say last night when I was sitting thinking about what I did during my day … I probably couldve done an entry, had I not been on hiatus. Now, it’s 3 in the afternoon the next day, and I can’t remember one stinking thing. At work it was busy as usual. I walked in and found out one of my coworkers had up and quit, after being on some kind of sick leave for two weeks. Not the way to make friends, but he’s getting one hell of a deal, even I couldnt pass it up. So, work ended and I got home to the sound of the ‘boot scootin boogie’ or something. Seems my roommate is into cowboy music. Argh. It was full blast, but she left her door closed. So after about an hour of doing odds and ends of things I knocked on her door to check out what was up. She was sobbing, saying she was bankrupt and couldnt pay her bills. Now, my heart goes out, but the only thing I could think of was whether she could pay the bills that WE needed to get paid. I dont pay bills for other people, no matter what the circumstance. I know I sound like an asshole, but it’s not my responsibility to take care of other people. I dont know what she’s going to do about it, she owes about $30,000 or so in medical bills she thought were covered by insurance. Sucks to be her.

Anyhow, last night I ordered a USB attachment for my laptop, so now I’ll be able to plug in USB stuff, and I also ordered a minicam thing so I can get my journal up and running.

I also designed the color scheme, which I let Katie (www.misanthrope.org/katie) take a look at, and with her approval with go forward. I think you’ll like it, if I can ever get it up and running, for now you can read these updates.

Tim (www.freespeech.org/tim) was quoted in Mighty Kymm (www.hedgehog.com/mightykymm) and is getting hoards of people to his journal, which he richly deserves. I also got added to Mighty Kymm’s funny pages finally, to I’ve got to work on being funny now. Somehow I have to tie in the fact that I got an ICQ from a stranger last night. She was really a nice girl from Hawaii that found me from Mighty Kymm through to Tim and over to me. We must’ve talked for about an hour or so about all sorts of things. I love talking to people just randomly, as long as they can keep the conversation going.

And finally, I appreciate all the people saying they will miss me and telling me to enjoy my time off. I do plan to come back though. I just need some time to gather thoughts and redesign. So consider this just taking the journal off the air for a redesign, sort of like remodeling your house. Some people choose to live in their house while remodeling, and some move somewhere else temporarily. Well, welcome to my humble temporary quarters in email land.

One last thing, I know, I know, I never shut up once I’m on a roll, but I was up late last night and an old high school friend contacted me on ICQ and said, “GO TO BED!”, and then forwarded me a file. Try it out, http://www.urban75.com/Mag/bubble.html . It’s pretend bubblewrap that you can sit and pop on the computer. I knew it was time to go to bed when I started playing with that, trying to pop five in a row. It just wasn’t going to happen.

The saga continues tomorrow …
