Thursday, October 15

This is either my wannabe realestate agent photo... or, as some folks like to say, my "creepy old guy" look.

Today was nice. Cold as all get out, but nice.
I had four significant blocks of work to do today and all I pretty much did was sit down and start plugging away.
I know i drove to starbucks at one point...
but 4:00 came along and everything was done. :)
So I left with a self satisfied grin. (hence the creep old guy photo)

~ I like that sorta purple shirt... :)
~ three reports, meeting minutes and a set of presentation-revisions... and presto... day-is-done!
~ wanted to watch survivor... but it's getting late. The evening vanished in a puff of chores... most of which had to do with food.
~ for a little something good to sneak into uawildcatgrl's day...
~ to send some love to suburbiadaze
~ and to take a moment to hold ayoub's hand while he waits...

Birthday moments...
Happy birthday to my long lost Amy... a little jaggedpill that - I think - is still teaching little people to cook. May there be brilliant moments on every horizon.

Dr.oz was cool beans when he got his first little oprah leg-ups.
but now... he's getting creepy.

If ever it came to pass that I could no longer be sarcastic or irreverent on the inter-weebs...
I'd sign off forever.

hehe... the concrete footings I put in last weekend are all cured and perfect. :D (Well, I assume all is perfect... the cement is solid. :D)
So with a little good weather this weekend, we'll be able to put the other two in!!!

... k... nighti night. :)

Friday, October 16

And the question is... which one is a better description of my "state of self" on this lovely Friday.????? :D :D

Looking out the window... driving away at lunch... and then coming back...
All of it...
Through glorious sunshine.
Big fat shiney beams of wonderful sunshine.
Oh how I love the sunshine... on a friday.
Although... i'm quite sure I'd like it even more ON A SATURDAY... k. :D (Dear Mommy Nature: Take a hint sugar. :D)

~ Jeans, green shirt, dark green sweater. :)
~ start my day at Physio... shoulder still suckscocksinhell!!!!!! gah!
~ long ass day at work... but not working too hard today. Cleaning up administrative stuff... getting some docs cleaned up. :)
~ go to the gym for lunch... which is great... except for my frick'en shoulder.
~ it's just about 4:30 and I'm about to take off... HERE COMES THE WEEKEND!!!! :D :D :D :D :D
~ that things work out for little miss excited... er... for nontradstudent
~ for darkbay... to get a lot more of ... what she's so darn keen about... :)
~ and to point out that henman rocks the shutter.

Birthday moments...
Happy birthday lique... May there be peace in the days of your life.

~ wicked good web page.
Seriously... it pays to be a canadian... especially when the DMCA lives in America.

I don't blame orgs like Google or ISPs reacting with a ham fist to DMCA notice requests for a takedown.
They end up totally hosed by the DMCA.
The real criminal ... culpret... giant dick head... is the IP holders who appear to have long since lost touch with the reason they create IP in the first place.
Nothing quite like turning the public against you by the way you react to imagined copyright infringements.

Alan Cross... (Music guru)... made a groove comment the other day in Twitter.
He pointed out that Micheal Bubble (sp?) and Barby Streisand (again SP?) released their new albums to the #1 and #2 slots in American this week.
Numbers 1 and 2 were represented by album sales that measured in the 10,000's.
When the Backstreet Boys releaseed an album that put them in number 1... the album sales were measured in the 1,000,000's
First of all... BUBBLE AND STREISAND!!!
Second of all...10,000's??????
The times are not "a'changen".

Dear Record Industry Execs...aka: Dinosaures...
You lose.
It's over.
AND GUESS WHAT... good musicians... are good musicians because they have music in their hearts. The fact that you are no longer becoming a mega millionaire (again) will not stop them from making music.
No, the only music we're going to NOT SEE... is the music you MANUFACTURE VIA POP BANDS.
And guys... that wasn't really music anyways.
So no big loss.
Please try not to let the door hit you on the way out.

ps. and I will try to break your copyrights ever single chance I get.

Geo is in Grade 9
Nov 4 is coming.
Nov 4 is "Take Your Kid To Work Day".
I am very keen. :D :D :D :D

You have to be made of stern stuff to grow older and not sink into the hole that young folks seem to want to dig for you.
I refuse to be what you think.
I will be exactly what I think.
Nothing more...
No one less.
