The End of 2003

Whaaa! It’s the last one of the year!, Boohoohoo!

Ok, anyway, yeah, this is my last post for the year. Thursday will be 2004, and I don’t update till Thursday night, so…

I could do a “Year in Review” Special, but I think there are enough of those around.

I don’t know, it’s been a long year, I’ve made new friends, regained lost ones, and did some new things. I never did get a job though. I mean, I have a job, but it’s screwy, and I don’t consider it real, so. But thats my New Years Resolution, to get a real job, and get beefy. Yeah, beefy. The way I see it, if I at least ride my bike more, it will do something. I’m not going to go get a gym membership or anything, just take dog for a run more often, and ride bike more, yeah. Of course, not till its warmer out though. Ooh, and clean my room.

Christmas break isn’t even half over yet. I don’t have class until Wednesday the 14th. Hah, thats like 3 more weeks. I love college.

Ooh, ooh, Today is Molly’s Birthday, or so we decided. The vet figured around the end of ’02 she was born, and my aunt died on the 29th of cancer, so we decided molly was born same day (but a few years later). So my baby it 1 today, woohoo!

I was told that some of the ideas I put in blog wouldn’t work, like my child bearing license. Well no shit. I just write stuff that comes to mind, I don’t actually think about it or anything. I’m sure with some work they could be made to work, but I’m lazy, so screw that. Just wanted to point that out.

So that special thing I mentioned, it kinda sucked. It sounded really good in my head, but my mind is kinda warped, and the brain-to-hand travel seemed to have degraded it. Anyway, it’s on the stories page. I’m not even going to link to it, go find it yourself. Link to homepage is in top right of page, go from there. If you convince me it sounds interesting, I will work on more, otherwise, it might just go away.

Hmm, Uhh, well, yeah.

I just applied for home depot online. Including my Staples application, thats 2, plus IBEW, so 4 job apps this year. Wow.

Ok, my brain is going off, and I don’t feel like typing through a ramble, or do I?

hmm

spelling will probably be bad..

but could be funny…

ok, I’ll do it.

Ok, so this guy is running through the woods, and he hears this noise, and hes like “Whos there”, but nobody answers, so he ceeps running, and running, and theres more noises, and he runs faster, and there coming nearer, AHHHHHHHHHHH.

So he trips, right? And the thing comes up to him, and suddenly all the trees are gone, and theres this big clearing, and hes bleeding and shit, and all scraped up from the banches, and can barely make out his persuer, and then he realizes its a snake! Not just any snake, but a big cobra, then BOOM! Theres GI Joe, and they kill the evil cobra, and the guys all like “Yeah, woohoo!”, and then GI Joe’s like “no problem”, and the dudes like “I dodnt know you guys were even real, I must be dreaming, your really here?” and GI Joes are like, “Well now you know, and knowing is half the battle”, and so the guys like “Hah, you always say that, can’t you come up with something new?” and GI Joe is like, “Hey, we could just leave you here, to die or something”, and so the dude appologizes, and gets a ride home in this wicked helicopter

the end

Woo, that was fun. Ok. I am leaving it how I wrote it. Thats how I wrote the Sock, by the way. Except on paper, so was illegible, AND had poor spelling and grammar.

Ok, til next year,
don’t die,

“It’s ok, I’m cool.”
“No your not.”

Happy Independence Day!!!!!

Ahh, another post. It’s 12:07 right now so that means it’s the 4th now, so lets begin with a happy Independence Day to you all.

Molly is back from the vet. We took her in Monday, but due to several “veterinary emergencies” they were unable to due the surgery until tuesday morning, and she came home Wednesday. She goes back next week to have her stitches removed, but is nearly back to herself now.

I finally have the new site up. All the coding of it is done, but there is a severe lack of content still at this point. I will slowly work at it, knowing me very slowly. You can go check out the main design though, bitch about whatever is there so I know what to work on.

I hate this part, I need to write more, but can’t come up with anything useful. I could keep babbling like this, but you don’t want that. I could go on like this for a long time, but need something useful, something at least partially important.

The case of the new G5s is starting to grow on me. The lack of drive upgrades is still a pitfall though. Maybe with hard disks being of such insanely high capacities will alleviate this some, but there is still the no second optical drive/no removable media drive thing. Ohh well, perhaps in 2004.

I still want wireless. My laptop is sitting on an end table in the front room, and either I just sit in front of it, or disconnect all the cables but the ethernet and sit with it in a chair. What would be nice though, is if I could disconnect that last cable. I want too much stuff for this ibook right now: Wireless card, more memory, 10.3 Panther (when it comes out), AppleCare, and I still haven’t even paid it off yet. Like I said a few weeks ago, I gladly accept donations…

Ren & Stimpy is back, 2 episodes every thursday. The first, at 10pm is the “new” version, written and animated by the original crew. The second, at 11:30 is the “classic” version, digitally re-mastered of course (everything is now). These are the classic ones, “Space Madness”, “Happy Happy, Joy Joy”, “Log”, etc… You know what, they are not what I remembered. I could swear the annimation was better, these things look like old “Loony Toons” episodes, but they’re what, 6 years old?

Ok, thats enough for now, it says its 12:40 now so I been typing on and off for like 33 minutes, thats enough to me.

See you later,
nick

Sorry Again

Well, back again. I would like to begin by mentioning that anniversary thing again. Perhaps I didn’t make the hoopla that I said I would here, but it was an exciting event for me none the less.

My puppy (if a 50 lb. 6 month lab can be called such) is gone at the vets. She was taken in about 8 this morning to be fixed, but due to several emergencies at the vets they were unable to get to her, so she will need to stay an extra night. They should perform the surgery tomorrow morning and we can pick her up on Wednesday. I miss her.

Apple is now screwing with us again. They released updated G4 systems in May (I think) running on a new motherboard and 1.0, 1.25, and 1.42 GHz. When the G5s were announced a week ago, they dropped the 1.0 and 1.42 GHz G4s though. No big deal, but it seems they also went back to the previous motherboard. They claim this is to “provide the lowest cost computer possible” and “to allow users to continue OS 9 booting”. I see this as bull crap, but there isn’t much you can do.

Tomorrow I need to work with my mom, and of all places were doing landscaping 2 houses over form our old house (our ex-neighbors neighbor). My mom’s friend that sold our house, is selling this one as well and “needs the appearance of the yard updated” (you should see it, its only a slight understatement, hah).

Well, that would seem to be it, I’ll see you later,
