feeling a little...: frustratedWHAT'S IT TAKE!
Listening to:: Junkie XL- Perfect Blue Sky/ VNV Nation Liegestod
The hardest thing I do during the week is deal with the women in my life. The lengths men are forced to go to... just to do nice things is unreal. Try to make plans, they fall through, so I make adjustments. these adjustments are then tossed out the window by the phrase, "I'm tired. i just want to go to bed." Then of course she goes to bed... 6 hours later. And what, you ask, was it that I wanted to do? I wanted to take her downtown, for a day just wandering about, going to Borders, getting great coffee (XandO beats the crap out of Stargrubs, and for proof... they serve s'mores), and gifts.

Imagine my surprise, when I offer to completely shower her with gifts and affection (and good food thanks to Morimoto's Sushi place) to be turned down for a shitty hoagie (sub/grinder/hero to you bizarre people not in Philadelphia) and her to not even go to SLEEP BEFORE ME.

So for you who ask, it it done yet?  the answer... is no.

feeling a little...: numbnumb
Listening to:: Die Krupps- Nothing Else Matters

Let me start by saying I hate funerals. That being said, watching your Bubbie (Grandmom for the guyim) crying becuase she lost a daughter is something you should not have to deal with. And her husband... it's tough to lose someone you love. Let alone sonmeone you lived with for 35 years. Someone who is your best friend (take my word on this). He lost that all at once.

And my Mom... They'd been friends since the womb. The worst part about funerals is watching people you love in so much pain and not being able to do anything. Other than just be there. I swear I could actually feel the grief choking me.

Well Barb, I hope you're raising the same hell up there you did down here. At least I know the Party will be started right when it's my turn.

How to make a khezial tahr

Combine in a tall glass half filled with crushed ice. Add a little cocktail umbrella and a dash of emotion


Personality cocktail

I think the cocktail umbrella adds that special little something. Especially in a shot glass...

May. 3rd, 2005 @ 05:00 pm Big news I can't share...
feeling a little...: restlessrestless
Well... I've done it. I've made one of those (expensive) and life changing decisions. A big step. And one that will make many people very happy. Unfortunately, as much as I'd like to fully share it I can't. Oh I'd like to, I CRAVE to share it and tell as many people as I can. However... one wrong move and the surprise is blown. And that would not be right.

In other news, I've been itching to write for old characters. Ok, so that's not odd. But these are characters i'll NEVER be able to use ANYWHERE. I'm working on a tidbit for Polo (it seemed to fit just right)and even some older chars from way, way WAY back.

You scored 50 Holy, 42 Tactful, 87 Natural, and 55 Arcane!

If you ever take the time to explore your potential you will have one
of the greatest magical reservoirs at your fingertips. You interact
with the world using your keen intuition, though often you find
yourself to be unable to adapt to situations that you haven't handled
before. You can be reckless, and I would translate this into real world
advice with the caution not to play with fire... ever. Of course, given
that you're in a world where monsters are coming for ya, go for it...
just not near me. Oh, and I don't care how good you are at it, don't
ever summon anything... you'll probably muck it up and end up unleasing
a daemon or something... and no, you probably can't take one.

Interesting... What a week. I am so full of pent up creativity and nobody is posting. Nobody. No posts. Nothing. *sigh* I've gotten some work done on my story though. that was nice. I am becoming more determined now to finish it just to see my name in print. I am determined. That and I need this story out of my head. it rolls around and bounces off my brain in ways that drives me crazy. So out you go.
My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

Listening to:: My life with the thrill kill kult- The Days of Swine and Ro
Been busy writing for emovamps *sigh*, and depraved sensualists. Just when I think I can return to my normal cast of characters. But OH NO! Not quite yet it seems... Now I'm working on horror. Horro I can do, rather well... But this will be slasher stuff. Now emocrap isn't me, and while blood and gore don;t phase me, slasher stuff seems somewhat... hollow. So now I'll have to fix my little claws into something that will give me more meat to work with.

Pathology is fun.

Mar. 16th, 2005 @ 12:53 pm So much for AIM...
feeling a little...: annoyedannoyed
I just found this, so i figure it would be kind of me to share.

AOL Terms of Service: http://www.aim.com/tos/tos.adp]http://www.aim.com/tos/tos.adp
You or the owner of the Content retain ownership of all right, title and interest in Content that you post to public areas of any AIM Product. However, by submitting or posting Content to public areas of AIM Products (for example, posting a message on a message board or submitting your picture for the "Rate-A-Buddy" feature), you grant AOL, its parent, affiliates, subsidiaries, assigns, agents and licensees the irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide right to reproduce, display, perform, distribute, adapt and promote this Content in any medium. Once you submit or post Content to any public area on an AIM Product, AOL does not need to give you any further right to inspect or approve uses of such Content or to compensate you for any such uses. AOL owns all right, title and interest in any compilation, collective work or other derivative work created by AOL using or incorporating Content posted to public areas of AIM Products.

Can't say I'm happy about this one. Even though they say 'post' and 'public areas' those are decidedly vague terms. Especially when they use the term post for AIM. Now they have said that personal conversations are not monitored (Man, how much would that job just SUCK?) where exactly is the line drawn?

Modifications to the Terms of Service
AOL may change the Terms of Service at any time and in its sole discretion. The modified Terms of Service will be effective immediately upon posting and you agree to the new posted Terms of Service by continuing your use of the AIM Products. AOL will provide at least 30-days' notice before any material changes take effect. If you do not agree with the modified Terms of Service, your only remedy is to discontinue using the AIM Products and cancel your registration.

Interesting... now they can change it at any time and all they have to do is post the changes at some obscure link and never tell anyone they did it.

Do you think it occurred to them to treat their users with some respect? it bothers me that software companies feel like they can run over people just because they have the 'big product', which gives them market share while the users have none. Guess what... that's bull.

It's the people who gave you that market share. The users who give you this money and influence. It drives me nuts to see people shafted like this, all because they have allowed the corporations and power machines to skew their worldview. In a capitalist society (don't kid yourself about it being a democracy) everything revolves around the money. And if people don't spend it, then there's nothing to revolve around. Which means you lose your precious market share and income.

Listening to:: Nine Inch Nails- The hand the feeds
Been a while...

I've been busy workign on a few things for the new site, which is up and Beta-testing. And got a new laptop that's causing me some grief. Both have kept me fairly busy and annoyed for a while now. I'm also working on setting up email for the domain, which is becoming a royal pain in my ass.

Oh well...

Still been a good couple of weeks here. Work is going well and it looks like there's a VERY good chance I could stay here. Which would be awesome, if it happens. I work with great people, in a great place and a relaxed atmosphere. What could be better? Being here permanently and not as a contractor. How sweet that would be.

And DEAR CREATOR! THERE'S ANEW nin SONG! And it rocks. Such a good day I want to burst.

Sorry for the last post... too much caffine and too little aptience with the brain cell impaired will do that.

I baked my rugalah. And while the first batch was AWFUL (i mean bland and nasteh) they got much better. I so need a Bubbe recipie for them. Now of course I'll have to go and bake for my friends and ship it across the world. It's ok though, I love baking.

Things have been well... surprisingly calm. Almost too calm. Oh well... I have enlisted the possible help of my friend to help with the website. With luck his crazy ass will be able to give us a hand. He's so much better at that than I.

I'm feeling like a predator today. Not sure why. It's an odd feeling. Waiting,wanting to pounce. And for no good reason.

I've been thinking opf a few things lately. Just how stupid is the world and the people in it? I high school senior dresses in a gorilla suit and wlaks around the school roof and they arrest him like a terrorist ans sweep the school for bombs.

BOMBS? I should mention he was an Honors Student with a perfect record until this. oh yeah...

The worst thing a guy in a gorilla suit would do is throw a banana cream pie at you. Hell some guy hits Bush with a pie and he's just dragged away. And this KID gets arrested?

Then I thought of it, and it began to make sense. Oh yes, perfectly strange sense, the kind that drivces you crazy when it hits, like finding out your grandmom is an Old one and your Dad is Nyarlahotep. We as a people make no sense. Think about it... Bush gets reelected because he made a stand. Nobody actually LIKED where he stood (or what he stood in) but he at least stood up for things. So now he's back, and our constitution is gone (who needs it anyway? oh yeah.. Iraq). There are warnings NOT to use a HAIR DRYER in the SHOWER and to remove clothes before placing them in a washing machine. Oh yeah. And they say evolution is dead.

I say bring back survival of the fittest. If your dumb enough to walk in front of a moving car, you deserve to get hit. If you try to dry your hair in the shower, ZZZZZZZZZZTT! Later. We'll just skim you off the top of the gene pool with the rest of the pond scum and keep going.

(more to come)
