Argh. I don't know what I'm doing again!

Thought I'd stop by and say HI!

I'm at work and should probably do some actual work, right?

Thought so...

Been busy the past couple weekends here at work. I enjoy Sundays 'cuz I can get caught up on some things that just can't be finished on the busy nights.

Otherwise, my parents should be back from Maryland (by way of Wisconsin) today sometime. I won't see them 'til morning though...

Yeah. That's me. I've been absent from here for over 2 months. Yikes!!!!!

I don't have much of an excuse, except that I've been pretty stressed out by work lately. I go through periods like this every so often. I hate it. I really would like to get out of that place. Maybe if I didn't have a job that makes me down antacids like candy, I'd be more active with all sorts of things.

I need to come here more.

Really, I do.

This once a month thing is for the birds.

Speaking of birds... we have a bird feeder on one of the kitchen windows. The past few days a cowbird has been frequenting it. He's also been puffing himself up and pecking at his own reflection in the glass. It's really quite amusing. My brother got some video of it.

Not feeling the happiest right now. I am having thoughts of a kind that haven't visited me in about 30 years or so.

I don't like it.

Beyond bored

I think I have either attained a true case of ennui or reached the Nirvana state of boredom. Not even the things that usually make me smile are appealing.

I think it's the weather. It's been cloudy/foggy here in the One Way World. It's depressing. No offense, Seattle, but I don't think I could live there. I'd like to visit, but after a very rainy October and the past week here in the center of the US, I don't believe I could handle all the clouds and rain for too long a time.

Oh... I did get Peter Gabriel's new album today. Hopefully that will make my drive home after work a little more entertaining.

March post! Aieee! Copics!!! Aieee!!!!!

Another month has passed us by. Hopefully Spring is not too far away. It's been a little warmer here in the One Way World. The mountains of snow are no longer looking like the Rockies, but more like the Appalachians. I still think the last of it will melt sometime in July or August. Worst thing about the melting... seeing all the dirt left behind. I'm afraid we're going to be in for one smelly Spring again.


My local Hobby Lobby store is cruel. They doubled the size of the display racks for the Copic markers... and have started to fill all the slots! It only took me three years and way more money than I care to admit I spent to get the original 72 colors they had. Now I have to really be careful and limit myself whenever I go in there and look.

However, I did break down and bought four of them yesterday. Two light skin tones and two middle shades of green. I can always use skin tones...


Well... I suppose I could wander off and find something useful to do, but why waste a perfectly good feeling of apathy?

It's ALIVE!!!

*insert Weird Science by Oingo Boingo here*

Well... after ignoring things here for a couple months, I decided I should check out what was last said here in the One Way World. I had posted about the dead iPod. I finally took it somewhere to be looked at.

It's. Not. Dead.

The battery had drained itself.

I feel really kind of dumb for not checking that earlier.
