Being sick sucks

I’m dying. Ok, maybe not. I freely admit I’m one of those annoying whiny sick people that everyone talks shit about. I’m quite sure it stems from when I lived at home and my mother would turn into Super Mom when I’d got sick. She’d always be there with a bucket in case I threw up or a cool washcloth for my forehead – flipping it every hour or so when it’d warm up. Mom would always seem to know when I’d want some juice, 10-K, warm tea or a cool bath.

So of course, now that I’m not living at home, this all translates into me moaning and grunting until someone asks me what I want.

On the other hand, I think I’m pretty good to be sick around. I will never forget the value of a cool washcloth on a feverish forehead.

Glubs?

This is pretty cool. It’s a set of scripts that make it possible to run your own “community” site like Yahoo! Groups, or MSN Groups. I can’t wait to see it mature, I have an idea I could use it for. I’d tell you what the idea was, but someone may steal my shit. hehehe They’re a bit of the ways finished, but still too far away to use on a production site. I hope it’s not one of those great projects that have too many cooks in the kitchen and implodes on itself. I’ve gone that route before. That’s the frustrating thing about using a CMS for web development… it’s like playing Russian Roulette with your time. You try to pick the best software, with the best support, and then build your site and hope they don’t kill the project off when one developer gets a bug up their ass and pisses off the rest of them. Ahh, the pitfalls of open source.

Rice cakes for lunch today. Payday is tomorrow and I’m so excited I’m shaking.

Or maybe it’s from lack of proper nutrition? I’ll just pretend.

uhg. I’m not a mindreader, people!

uhg. I dont think I should ever run a business, I just dont handle dealing with people very well sometimes. Granted, in every venture there are people that are very polite, helpful, and express their likes and dislikes very plainly. Then there are the others. First he loves the site, then he hates the fact that I listed the other nlt sites on it, then he’s mad because there’s no picture of him on it anymore, then there’s no filmstrip with pictures, now it’s too skinny, wha wha wha. Maybe if someone would spend 5 minutes in the room with me at my computer and help me design the thing, it’d actually look the way he wants it… I ain’t no Karnac, muthafudrucka! Geesh! *g* Anyhoo, no big deal…

On a better note, Sheila at work gave me her old Camera setup yesterday. It includes a Nikon FM2 and an assortment of lenses, filters, straps, and a cool little light meter. Thank you Sheila! I think I’m going to get it cleaned and checked out before I start using it though… the shutter is a little messed up and I’m not sure if it will cloud the images or not. Maybe I should run a test roll through it.

I’m so psyched!

You hear that? That’s our rights being flushed down the toilet.

The sad thing is, the record companies could stop the majority of piracy by marketing artists more responsibly and pricing CDs accordingly. Until a CD that sells 10,000,000 copies isn’t priced the same as one that sells 10,000 – and isn’t marked up 6000% by the time I can purchase it, I’ll be a-downloading. Thankyouverymuch.

Growing Pains Indeed

Hi, I'm Kirk Cameron, and you are not a good person.Ok, I’m sitting on the sofa on this lazy day off, mocking the cable wacko-religion channel. After two minutes of today’s sermon – I realise I’m watching KIRK CAMERON tell me that there is no such thing as a good person because only the Lawd is good.. Fsck you Kirk Cameron. Uhg. This is just too bizzare.

I’m ready to go back to work.
