George... Yahoo's newest victem in the land of online game addiction. :D

I know you've heard it all before
So I don't say it anymore
I just stand by and let you
Fight your secret war
And though I used to wonder why
I used to cry till I was dry
Still sometimes I get a strange pain inside
Oh, Joey, if you're hurting so am I

Concrete Blonde pushes my buttons...

It's a flat day... it's cloudy and lightly snowing... no shadows... If you were downhill skiing today you would slam into mogul after mogul because you couldn't see them. I kinda slept in... but going to bed in the middle of the night doesn't help. I spent a lot of time last night worry'en out some problems with my current client so I don't really give a crap if I'm an hour late in the morning.

~ gray flts
~ dk blue dockers
~ salmon GAP t-shirt, hiding under a bluenotes sweater... (I love this sweater, very comfy)
~ a day with my head tucked into the books for my current client... only two weeks left to spit out a mountain of information... ug.
~ no really... ug! I'm totally out of crack and there's no starbucks anywhere near me... (sniff!)
~ Wednesday night... I'm hoping for a new West Wing...
~ to find a new solution to some of the logic behind the html supporting galleries on my web site...
~ I could get some comments on the new layouts (website)
~ that my uber precious friend ladyfire has a wonderful time on her big adventure... look out Norway... she's gonna jump you! :D
~ I had a spam distruction button that would cause 60 million volts of electricity to shoot through the left and right temples of the geek that is pressing the RETURN key out there causing me to get the never ending supply of emails from "dave" or "jane" (etc) with subject lines like "I'm coming right over" or "We need to talk"... geezus.
~ to shoot a big smile out to a couple of lj friends... gravity and dinkydo... just 'cause they make me smile. :)
~ for warm and not-ignoring-for-one-second vibes to wash over my friend notcharming
~ and wave a congratulations thing at my buddy landmark on his recent engagement to a woman he is just ga ga over...
~ that my friend aristophren had to wear leotards when he plays for those girls... 'cause that would make great cinema. :D
~ I was going with frozenone ... 'cause that pool and those palm trees look mighty inviting bro!
~ that the world would bend in on itself someday and make it possible to actually meet bardiva... I think I would have a hard time not smiling like a school boy around her. :)

ok... this is kinda corney, but I read a comment from a friend yesterday about her brother "shipping out"... a reference to journal friends family member leaving the US for the Middle East with the Armed Forces. I was quite seriously struck with the emotional context of how hard that must be for them... all of them... the family members, the soldiers, the friends... I sincerily hold out great hope, against the odds that play out on CNN, that my American friends in LJ stay safe and thier friends and family members come back.

Catching up on Birthdays...

I know I know... I need to just get into the swing of sending you a simple "happy birthday" on your special day because it sucks to miss it... however, I was away for most of these and I don't even know if you all are reading anymore... so go figure. :D

Any way you slice it... almost everything I do here I do for me... and I want to wish happy birthday to my friends. :D
