Busy busy busy

Well, not really.

You can actually translate the title to read: I've been playing alot of EverQuest lately.

I could go into the details, but as I've pointed out on more than one occasion, only one of my readers (hi andie) would really appriciate hearing about it.

And I'm not even sure she would, so I'll just say I'm having fun with it.

I've been neglecting other things, like my blog....

I also have some news (possibly) but I don't want to jinx it, so I'm not going to say anything about it.

Well, I guess I just said something about it, but I'm not going to say any more.

For now.

Buenos con queso,

So, I guess I should have waited to post yesterday....

At least I'd have had something to post about.

If you follow me on Twitter (and if you dont why dont you), or if you're in my family then you know that I got fired yesterday.

If you're not, then I guess you just found out.

Of course, I didn't find that out until after I'd walked all the way to work. My boss, who has to answer to the owner, delivered the news in his office shortly after I arrived at work.

He wasn't happy about having to let me go, but the owner is the owner, and what he says pretty much goes.

I guess it seems he didn't think I was listing enough stuff on ebay, even though not having stuff to list isn't really my fault.

Oh well, what can you do?

So now, I get the joy of finding a new job. I'm not really worried about finding one yet, even with the depressed economy, as I've always been able to find a job. Of course, it's only been a day (already applied at walmart) and of course, I'll be applying around town, but as it's only been a day, I'm not stressing.


If things don't go well, then we'll see. I'm easy though, in that I'll take just about anything. I'm not one of those types that will turn my nose up at a job. Hell, if worse comes to worst, I'll get a job at Taco Bell or something.

I'm pretty sure that I'm just going to fuck off today. I may go out and apply a couple places, but I'm not sure. I suppose I could use today to get a sample manuscript together so that I can start sending it around to get my book deal.

That'd solve all my job problems.

Am I going mad or did the word think escape your lips?

It seems like every time I blog I'm apologizing for not having blogged.

I'm sure that gets as old for you as it does for me, so I'll try not to do that anymore. I wish (as usual) that I had wonderfully exciting tales of wonder and awe to explain my absence, but once again, I have nothing.

I guess that actually goes part of the way to explaining why I haven't been blogging.

Not a lot has really been going on. It's started getting hotter, which is a blessing and a curse, cause when it gets hot here, it gets hot. Today is predicted to be 87, which isn't all that hot, I guess, but it still sucks.

I really wish I had more, but....

Ok, time to get ready for work.

Buenos con queso,

Wish me luck.....

I'm sending my new computer back today.

Please join me in hoping/praying that they can find out what's wrong with it, and make it work for me.

Although, at this point, I'd almost rather they offer me a refund, 'cause Lappy's doing just fine as an eq machine....

Well, it's another 'from work' post, so it's short.

Buenos con queso,

So, I re-activated my Netflix....

And I'm already in love with the 'stream to the PS3' thing.

They sent me a disc (that i dont have to return) to put in, which gives you a code (that i can enter on my iphone) and viola, I can choose from tons of tv shows or movies that I can watch instantly.

Well, to be honest, it takes a minute or 2 to get going, so it's not instantly, but it's pretty fuckin' close.

In addition to that, I still get to have them send me DVDs to watch. The plan I'm on allows me one at a time, but as many as I can watch in a month.

All that for $8.99.

How could you possibly go wrong?

Buenos con queso,

Oh, don't look at me like that....The internet is full of broken promises....

I know I said I'd be back yesterday, but yesterday didn't go quite as I'd planned. First of all, it was fucking hot. Not as hot as Vegas, or some other places, granted, but I don't do well in the heat.

Part of it's because my body temperature runs somewhere between 99.5 and 100, and part of it is because I have hair almost down to my ass. Throw in crappy air circulation at work, a dress code that won't allow me to wear shorts, and no a/c, and you can begin to understand my prediciment.

The heat started making me feel sick somewhere around 11 or so, and it didn't really let up until about 15 minutes after I got home and swapped my work clothes for a pair of shorts.

No shirt, no socks/shoes, just a pair of shorts.

And I was still hot.

Couple that with the fact that my leg felt like a rat with dull teeth had been trying to gnaw it off all day, and ask yourself if you would have blogged.

Yeah, I didn't think so.

Ok, so, on to news.

I haven't mentioned it (mostly cause i havent been blogging) but I took the plunge and ordered a new computer.

I went a little retro, and custom designed a P4 system with 4 gigs of ram and a 1gig PCIE vid card. See, knowing what I do about eq (which is what this box is primarily for) I know that this would tear it up.

I didn't go Dell, and I didn't go HP, as, like anything else, when you buy a name, that's what you mostly pay for: The Name.

Parts is parts, as they say.

I'm happy to report that my computer arried Thursday last.

I'm not so happy to report that I have to send it back, as it's not doing what it should. Does this make me happy? No. Does it make me regret my choice to go generic? No. Did this cause me to go ahead and try to plug my laptop into the internet and see if it would run eq? Yes.

I'm happy (and sad cause i didnt try sooner) to report that my lappy eats everquest. Well, at least so far. I wish I'd have tried earlier, but I never in a million years would have thought that it would work.

I've also plugged a USB mouse and keyboard into Lappy, and am currently using it to type this fabulous blog.

Ok, so on to the maudlin.

Today would have been Greg's 44th birthday.

It's funny how the time gets away from you. We're working on 2 years since he died, and it still tears at me that he's gone.

If any of y'all are still reading this, please send out a silent 'Happy Birthday, Greg.'

It'll mean a lot to me.

Ok, so sue me.....

I've totally been a crappy blogger.

I get that.

I've also been dealing with a pulled hamstring (not fun if you were wondering) and life in general.

I realize that life in general is what blogging is all about, but.....

So, yeah. I was a while ago, like a couple days before we left for the wedding that I pulled the hammy. I think I got it from a 'step lower than expected' episode. That, or I've been running track in my sleep or something.

Whatever the case, it fucking hurts!!

If I'm up and moving around (like walking a mile and a half to red lobster) it's mostly ok, but any time I have to actually sit or stand, I get what feels like someone jabbing a knife into the back my upper thigh.

Well, my ass, if you want to get technical. Sadly, there's no real 'cure' for it. Rest, ice, and, well aspirin. That's about it. Let me tell you, it fucking sucks. It's bad when walking to work actually causes less pain that getting in/out of the car when I get a ride.

But enough bitching.

The wedding was great, and (some of) the food was great. I posted pix from the wedding on my twitter, if you want to go see them. I'd post them here, but they're in my phone, and I'm not in the mood for the whole process I'd have to go through to get that done.

I've got more to say, but this is getting long, so I'll come back tomorrow.
