mornin lj...



Ok... new leaf day... that's actually the english translation for the Ojibwas indian word wednesday... ok, no it isn't, I'm making that up... but it sounds good doesn't it? I got allanis morrisette screaming about how I "outta know", a burning hot cup of really good coffee and I'm actually going to get to work (such as it is) earlier than usual. I'm going to use today to travel from hell back to a seriously good place... if the company I work is too fucking stupid to weather a slump, let alone handle layoffs with class, then they can collectively bite me. :D

wearing
~ dk blue cotton cargos... the quiet type.
~ serious turtle neck (no mock action here)
~ dem big ass shoes....
~ um, yea, gray boxers, white sox but dude? I'm just noticing three days and three dif pairs of shoes... it was really not that long ago when I'd wear the same shoes every single day of my life... hmmm...
planning
~ to go to client "a" for a 9:30 kick off - we're going to (dig this) start working for free for a client that is expected to contract us for a 30 day gig but cannot get the contract together for three weeks... so the vp of sales is digging this "risk" as an aversion to layoff action... problem: I have to convince the client to dig this and I have an hour to do that...
~ off to another client for total pre-sales action at 2:30 ...
~ avoid talking to my boss... who only seems to show up when he wants me to lay someone off... yea... I know.
~ to keep checking out the tech dungeon web cam... where the coolest geek date I know can be seen carrying signs. (:D)
wishing
~ I had a new pair of ear beads... good ones... note to self... go out and get those.
~ been dropped by a few lately... (le sigh) so I'm wishing well to you guys and I hope things work out for ya.
~ wishing I had time to be all mr. responsive to my pals, but saving a job, a team, a marriage, myself... well, it just takes up a big-m-f'n amount of time... if you're likely to drop me cause I don't comment in your journal very often... would ya drop me now and get it over with. I love you guys and usually get my best chance to read you after printing out the whole day of friends posts and reading them on the bus. um... hard to respond from he bus.

ps. saw a commercial for the new cranberries (sp?) album... Deloris rocks my sox... I'll own that one asap... oh, and I think I heard a new track from the concrete blonde album on CKCU (Carleton university radio station) yesterday... :D

pps. "whole lotta love" (zep) just came on the ear beads baybeee.... public transit, zepplin and coffee... go me!

later smoochers...

Lj Birthday Baby...

Happy Birthday Carole



It's the sylph-a-myster's birthday... I think she's turning 22... :D

sylph is a girl that works at this beautiful campground in western Quebec (Canada) and has been an Lj friend for-ever! I had the especially great fortune to meet her last summer when I went camping with my boiz and another precious LJ friend.

Talk about having a heart as big as the great outdoors... (oh, and a cool car! :D ok, so it's a trrrrruck...)

My birthday wish for you, Carol, is to find the peace in your life that will help you feel the happiness you so richly deserve, and to have the health enough to enjoy that happiness. Thank you for your friendship and I will see you again.

Hola Journal Land...

quick note: ly is smok'en... no not cigs... but she is killa fox and basically da bomb. Thanks sugar.

Dam but I didn't find my way to starbucks today!!!! gotta get my fix...

Life is moving along... and it freak'en sucks hard ass... but that's work. Somehow that stuff will work itself out. Here, there? who knows... The dif part is working with a big sharp axe hanging overhead...

I'mma going out to dinner tonight ... I get to stay downtown. Z's gonna meet me here and we're going to use up these "enjoy a dinner for two" coupons I got from a Golf Tourni last summer. Kids are being sat upon by their Anya.. (hungarian version of Nana :D) but the clock is tick tick ticking... Corto needs to be home in time to set up the vcr action to tape both West Wing and Enterprise...

Hey, I saw the movie... "Someone like you" last night... on the back of the DVD case they list stuff like "objectionable phrases" , "Sex/Nudity" and "Violence". If the movie doesn't have a high objectionable phrase count... OR at least 6 lines of text beside either of the other two categories... the chances are you cry during the movie at some point - Well, the chances are the I will cry at some point... I cry at all weddings, births and those movie moments when two people find their hearts. So, yes.. Hugh Jackman is all that and a bag of chips for the girls... and Ashley Judd does this cute cheerleader thing wearing a wee pair of panties and a tanktop (Miss Judd and furry leather straps....) but as for distracting the emotionally devastated human? Not an ideal movie for that... :D

Do you like the icon? I won't use it much ... but I do love that look... Makes me think of that Cake song "Short Skirt and a Looooong Jacket" ... specifically the line "Nails that shine like Justice" (bring it on!). It was made (the icon) by my friend kelliegrrl and she totally rawks. However, being as she's liv'en down under (australia) she's prol'y asleep right this second. shhhh don't wake her. :D

hiya lj...

So listen... Just in case anybody actually notices... and apparently somebody already did...

I had to delete all my friends filters... I don't filter much but some things get filtered for directed content or notes to individuals... etc. So a post that was filtered with anything other than "friends only" or "private" will now be unviewable to people that used to be able to see it... sorry if this creates some confusion.

it's a big poop... and I'm sorry about that. but the filters seemed to loose integrity and to protect the (cough) innnocent (/cough) I had to clear the decks.

If you have a linked memory or something like that that no longer works for ya... You can copy the URL line to me and I can fix specific posts... Again, I'm sorry if this is a big drag for anyone... just trying to maintain integrity on some private issues.

:D

G'night Lj...

Listen, just in case the message has not made it to you... Nic (galebird) was heading in to the ER for a quick test yesterday and they were concerned enough to keep her. She is ok. Here are two links to pigpen's journal with his updates... and my prayers are with her and her circle of care.

Link one

Link two

and on that note... g'night my friends... until tomarrow.

ps. oh lordy West Wing really cooks. I can still draw forth the image of Ainsly chucking that glass across her office, when she's dancing around in her housecoat and was surprised by the arrival of the prez... :D
