It’s very strange I was purusing through pictures of the NEW Santa Monica Blvd… and it got me to thinking about my life in LA, all 12 years of it. It was strange and difficult and not entirely unpleasant. I have no desire to even visit there anymore, seeing as I have no connection other than William and other assorted and discarded ex’s. I can’t imagine what my fascination with LA was, and I was definately fascinated with it when I was there, and even for a period after I moved up here to Seattle. Now I have this obscession with Florida, not the gulf-side but the Atlantic side of the state, maybe it’s listening to one to many Acura commercials? I think that it is also, that I want to be closer to my family espcially now that there is no one living on the West coast except for me. Don’t get me wrong I love Seattle, and my life here is full and happy, inspite of my natural cynicism. I love the weather, the geography, the aura, people stores coffee and all the good things there is here, big city small city feel and like others have pointed out, Seattle is San Francisco without the crime, gentrification and expensive apartments.
On another note, I’m still feeling like doody, my glands are swollen and not in a good way! I just got an Amazon order at work yesterday, one of the albums was Nicola Conte, Boss per due, I love this album, I’m going to order more I think. I am also expecting my new scanner to arrive tomorrow, it’s an Epson Perfection 636. I wanted something that I could hookup to as many of the machines at home that I have, mac, pc, beos, os2… .
Almost time to leave thank god, I am so looking forward a nice rainy weekend at home.
Most people are just valueless bags of air and flesh! Not my friends of course, just every fucking jerk that gets in front of me going 25 in a 40, every asshole that doesn’t know an enter key on the computer from a piece of toilet paper that calls and gets mad when I can’t dumb-down enough for them to understand, I’m not bitter, just dissapointed and disgusted.
I’m tired and I’m going to go home. Sean, my boss got fired today. Jason O has taken his place. It’s a little odd having someone who is a friend be your boss. I’m going home.
California had an earthquake yesterday, I’m sensing one coming to work
I haven’t written in longer than I would have liked. A lot has been going on. Noah got out during a windstorm we had about 2 weeks ago and hasen’t come home since. I’m ok with this mostely, except every now and then I think of him freezing or getting hit by a car and it just sends a wave of panic and sorrow through me. Dexter, sitts at the door crying and Bagerra just wanders the house aimlessly crying. We had decided just prior to Noah’s escape that we were going to get a little brother for him. We decided afterwards that it was probably still a good idea, so now we have a new addition to our little family, Tobey. Tobey is a Manx (rescue) that I got, he is the cutest thing and incredibly friendly. He has 7 toes on each of the front paws and 5 on each of the back. Large tufts of hair come out of his ears, and he seems to have boundless kitten energy. He is getting along really well with BOTH Dexter and Bagerra which is always a good thing.
We’ve been going out a bit more these days, drinking on the hill, always fun. We took Mathew out for Drinks and Dinner on Friday night and then on Saturday we went to a Halloween party in W. Seattle. Mike, Mandy, and myself went as the 3 ugly gals from DejaVu and Jason went as our pimp. It was a lot of fun. I had a couple guys at the party that kept wanting to grab my boobies.
The weather is definately getting cooler, we had our first snow (in the mountains) last night (Monday). The clouds have all cleared out so the Olympics are just breathtaking. I’m looking forward to getting home as I really don’t like being here anymore. I don’t like some of the folks that I work with. They are young and all that comes with that. I still keeping my eye out for a new job and when it comes it comes. I’m not to concerned at the moment. Tim’s out of the office which always make it more low key around here, a good thing.
I have a pot roast cooking in the crock pot for when I get home tonight, Yum .. and I’m feeling a little frisky so Mike better watch out.
Here He Comes now Second time….spoil our fun now, what a crime, terrorists in the studio can’t get the vocal down, before the Trumpet blows.
It’s a really cool morning here in Seattle, overcast and misty, what a great Fall day. It’s funny how Summer here leaves so abruptly. 3 weeks ago, it was still fairly warm and Sunny no trace of Fall in the air at all and then BAM all of a sudden it’s Fall, crisp nights, I love it, it makes me feel alive and excited and horny. I’ve been downlooding just shitloads of music off of Audiogalaxy. I also have reinstalled the newest Beta of windowsXP. I like the speed increase over Win2k there are definately some things to be said FOR it. I don’t like the Big Brother aspects of it reporting what I install or what I use on my machine to anyone, and unless they change that in the end I will be more than likely migrating (as I already am) to using a Mac with OSX 10.1, which everyone seems to gush about. We (Mike and I) are off to Cindi’s House of Pancakes for the best cheesy hash browns and NY steak breakfast anywhere . More later
I’m irritated with work, with where I live, and with most of my relationships. What is this grumpiness and general malaise about life I’m experiencing. Just poop on it all.
I hate fridays at work, I hate my job in general I hate it I tell you. I want to win the lottery, I don’t want to have to work. I want to have my investments work for me. I know I’m bitching but I really wish that either I had been born stupid and lemming like or smart enough to become wealthy.
I’m finally returning to a sense of the normal. we had visitors this weekend, Mikes sister and brother in law. It was a lot of fun having them here. We ended up having an impromptu party, break out the fondue Martha. It was a blast. We also did the obligatory Pikes Market tour, not that I mind, I love the Market, it is the Soul of Seattle a damn good thing they didn’t get rid of it. I hate the tourists but they only come out from May to Sept. They all go back to there homes somewhere in the Midwest or the South. Well just a quick catch up nothing witty to say, nothing exciting nothing controversial, Go Republicanism!!! rah rah rah.
Music playing: Not playing anything!
