The ongoing life and times of a computer scientist in his quest for happiness and a good-looking paycheck ... and all the BS that follows.

Once again, I must post up this truly awesome pic, because, whoever made it (I can't read the copyright info on it) did a good job of encompassing my beliefs ! (once again, I should let y'all know I'm a deist)
Sometimes you screw up, not willingly, but certainly deliberately ... you aim for the hole in the road, as much as you don't want to fall into it ... you're going through the motions, you only see certain doom, but you go ahead anyway... and then when it hits, and you fall into the hole, all you can think about from the moment you start to fall, to the moment you hit the ground is, "Why did I do that?" ... which is often coupled with, "Man, this is going to hurt!" Finally, when you get back up and out of the hole ... you swear to yourself that you'll never do it again ... at least ... you hope you won't ... :-D
Today, we had another official Atheist/Agnostic society club meeting ... btw, AS OF FEB 1st, we are a recognized UA CLUB ! whoo hoo! Conrad & Dan & I discussed posters and advertising for our first meeting. I also worked a bit on the web page ... and somehow fixed Dan's sound drivers for his compy ... so we were able to listen to some old-old-old-school classic rock for the rest of the meeting. It was rather bizarre ... but so were the last 48 hours. I'm so damn glad to be home ... So glad to be home ... so glad to be home ... also, after being at several different people's pads, I've come to the conclusion that I cannot live in a space without adequate lighting, color, and elements of intellectual curiosity, culture and diversity . Man, I'm spoiled. :-)
So good to be home.... after getting drunk, spending the night with some friends, giving away approx. $100-150 worth of items, and undergoing numerous mini-adventures, It's nice to sleep in my own bed ...
Wtf ? Haloscan lost the past week's worth of comments ! And those were really f****ing awesome comments ! arrrgh! (12:13am 2/6/03 ... they fixed the problem)
Overall ... today and yesterday have been two of the weirdest days in my records of sentient existence !
I got drunk at a friend's house last night ... first we had some wine (nothing fancy) with dinner, which was okay ... but then dessert attacked: with a barrage of chocolate, coffee, rum, and some other junk into a sort of uber-mudslide ! ... a mix of a normal mudslide and some variety of irish cream ... ooooog ...
Now I remember why I don't drink ! Gawd, I feel horrid ! I had to get up and clean up and run out the door while still feeling like ooze from the night before !
It's funny tho : we all had a blast, but we didn't really trash the place at all ... as we became more intoxicated , we actually ended up cleaning it ! Well, we certainly got a good start ... The place is now noticeably better than it was before we started drinking, and that's the funniest thing about it !
I'm not mixing alcohols again ... Hellz, I'm not drinking again, either ! ... Another life lesson I suppose ... this certainly isn't for everyone ... hmm ...
