NewYorkNewYork

I don't know how I ended up there...

I got the link to This psycho place from
akadashi and ended up (I'm not quite sure how... ) in the Burt Reynolds anti-drug campaign. With slogans like:

"Please children, do not do drugs."
"Glue huffing is for unpopular people. Rock climbing, now that's a high."
and:
"Take acid and you are on a one way trip to a scary place, young man."

I'm Groooooggy.
Because I just kept on going back to bed. The window was open, the temperature was just a little cool. It was perfect "keep hitting snooze" weather. And boy howdy did I.

I think I'll just be ripping more CDs...burning some of them today ::nods:: So I can figure out this frickin software.

UPS will deliver something late, but they'll never deliver something EARLY.
Very annoying, not suprising.
I've been ripping CDs and the list is, quite frankly, kind of impressive.
And I rediscovered some things I haven't listened to in years. Things I really loved.

I've been feeling pretty quiet today. Not in a shoved down way. Just in a nice, mellow, quiet way.
But there's a thing on TV about schizophrenia. And that makes me think about Sean. And there is such a huge sadness attached to that.
It's a *clean* sadness though.
Does that make sense? It's the same sadness I feel with Tom, in a way.
It's a sadness without regrets, because they both knew just how I felt about them.
There aren't any "if onlys" attached to their memories.

And I'm in love.
And things are looking up, maybe.
But I'm being very reserved with it.
Doing it more job searching para Chad.

and I find things like http://www.wrongcrowd.com/links.shtm and I find it so bizarre that you can see so much about someone from their links page. I mean ... this guy enjoys fish tanks, old school arcade games, Fantasy art, small business building, Buffy, phtography, car audio, cars, copying DVDs, "hacking", Macs, (heheh.. you can't hack things with a MAC), console gaming, online gaming, webcams, guns, history, ferrets, Ham radios, sattelite TV, online shopping and strange info about the city of Seattle, and that's just skimming the surface!
The guy has a total of 825 bookmarks.
How much time can a person have, dude?

Problem being, I don't know Seattle. I might at some point in time. But I don't know it now.
And I don't have a resume. Because I'm not a writer. And retail experience (the only thing I can *legitimately* put on a resume) is hardly qualification.
I think it's pretty damned funny though that they stress the fact that you need to CAREFULLY proofread. hehehe

MASTERMIND
(Submissive Introvert Abstract Thinker )



Like just 8% of the population you are a MASTERMIND (SIAT). You can be silent and withdrawn, but behind your reserved exterior lies an active mind that allows you to analyze situations and come up with creative, unexpected solutions. Normal people call this "scheming." Don't learn German.

Anyway, your sense of style and originality are your strengths, and people will respect your judgment once they get to know you. If you learn to be a little more personable, you could be a great leader--you've definitely got the "vision" thing down. Just make sure all the plotting you do behind those eyes of yours is healthy.

Famous masterminds in television: Dr. Claw, The Scarecrow and Mrs. King, Montgomery Burns.

My father is snoring, my mom is making weird noises, both asleep in their chairs in front of the TV.
I dunno if this is normal for those over 55...
Of if they've just had particularly tiring lives.
