Souls and Stuff

(05:53:48) repeter: Isn't instant messaging awesome? If we got to hang out in person, such mundane things might go unmentioned
(05:54:03) seanbob: I dunno
(05:54:07) repeter: We'd be stuck talking about things like computers, or our souls and stuff
(05:54:14) seanbob: lool
(05:54:16) seanbob: lol
(05:55:13) seanbob: That can't be... I'm pregnant with his Imperial child!

I was talking about my waffles. I know that last line makes you go "Huwaaa??" This'll help.

Not Enough Toys

I need more technology to play with. People giving me old monitors that aren't flat panels helps nothing. Lets count how many monitors I have, shall we?
One, ah ah ah! Two, ah ah ah! Three, ah ah ah! Four, ah ah ah! Five, ah ah ah! Five! Five monitors!

Thanks, The Count. That's right, I've got five monitors. I don't even have room for these things. I do still love my 17' flat screen, but my laptop's got that whole built-in monitor thing, so I don't get much use out of it. As soon as I have a free power outlet, I'll get back into that whole dual-monitor thing that I love so very very much.

What I'd really like right now is a new job so I could afford new toys, and a bigger place to keep my shiny new electrical things. Actually, a bigger place would be cheaper. My rent is way too high. I need the kind of job where I can fix things, or put things together. I've realized that I never have as much fun as when I'm fixing or building something. It makes me think not graduating from Mines isn't as bad as I thought. Like in the essay "Hackers and Painters", I can get a "day job" and hacking (programming) can be my hobby. (You should also read Paul Graham's "Why Nerds Are Unpopular".)

Well, this post seems to be completely unstructured and about nothing in particular. That's fun. I'ma try to make a router now.


I've got to admit its getting better...




oH, my God.
The Hard Goodbye. The first volume of Frank Miller's Sin City was awesome. Books and graphic novels are different from movies in a way no one can explain, so I won't try to say its any better or any worse. Its just awesome. Just like the movie.

To anyone reading this, do you think, "SHE SMELLED LIKE AN ANGEL OUGHT TO SMELL.", means Goldie smelled like sex? I think not and if you think it does you're heartless. You don't kill the way Marv did for a cheap fuck, Goddamn you. If you think it means she smelled like sex, you weren't even watching the movie.

"THEN THE DAMNEDEST THING HAPPENS. FOR A SECOND I SMELL THAT ANGEL SMELL THAT BELONGED ONLY TO GOLDIE." Does that sound like the smell of sex? No, it doesn't. No, I won't drop it.
