Kinda feels like paradise the last few days.

Friday the house went to Santa Cruz and the beach was packed!

I hit up San Francisco again taking the BART train. Round trip it's about $11, getting to the station takes about 10 minutes. The ride was a bit longer than expected at an hour and a half. Saw some dude smoking crack near the museum :p I should have worn some warmer clothes there, it got pretty chilly in shorts and a short sleeve shirt.

I cleaned the bathroom today! Here's to freshness!

it wasn't today, but...

i was at work. currently i am working at my local municipal govt (london, ontario), doing roadwork. i actually do asphalt, so fix potholes and lay down asphalt after sewer and water guys go in.

anyway, i work with this really intense greek man who i suspect is at least 70 years old and has some crafty way of avoiding forced retirement. he rakes out the asphalt after i shovel it from the back of the truck.

he normally says ABSOLUTELY nothing to me. he hates pretty much every one at the yard except for me because i know things about greece (and love it), and i don't say much to him either. and i work really hard.

anyway we're just driving around avoiding work and he turns around and says 'ARE YOU CATHOLIC'. i'm respond... 'yes', because i am, technically, and i suspected he was going to invoke some pro-religious thing. he then says 'are you a good catholic' and i say 'uh.. yes and no', because i still had no idea where he was going and didn't feel like getting into a theological debate.

he is silent for a few minutes and then enters in this little tale, about how if he were the last person who didn't believe in god, and there were 'one zero zero zero zero zero... etc' people who were religious and he were the last atheist he wouldn't get struck down by god. i still have no idea what he was getting at, and then he looked me straight in the eye and shouts 'RELIGION IS THE BIGGEST LIE IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD' and turns back around.

not the best story but amused me for a while. god, i'm excited to move to england in three days.

Nestor's construction story beats any of mine. The only awesome things I experienced/witnessed last summer were:
1. A foreman's truck rolling down the side of a mountain (literally) into a bunch of trees because he didn't bother with an E-brake
2. Brown bears wandering around, climbing into the backs of trucks, stealing our lunches
3. Mexicans telling yo mama jokes, thinking we didn't know a word of spanish

hiked the "m" today again. it was a lot hotter today than yesterday, so i wasn't as strong (i had to stop a bit more, especially to wipe the sweat off my sunglasses).

gotta keep exercising to keep happy and optimistic.

Also hiked the M. Struggled on the way up (like Luke said...it was HOT) but ran the long way down without stopping. Going down that fast was actually much more difficult than I thought it would be, because I forgot that I would need to be massively braking the entire way...

I think it did! I will not know till sometime during the week, probably. I got to meet with the head photographer and the 5 other photographers at this Gem and Bead company. I would start out doing photoshop bitch work cutting out necklaces with the pen tool, then hopefully move up to the RAW conversion, color correction, sizing biznass for their catalog.

I was dressed sharp and brought my portfolio for them to look at too. cross your fingers! i sure am.

first day at new job.

They took me aside before i got started and told me they wanted me to start doing raw file processing instead of clip pathing (pen tooling gems, beads, jewelry in photoshop) and also for being a back up photographer when one of the other 5 are absent for any reason. Pretty happy about this. i don't know how much hardcore clip pathing i could handle.. so instead i deal with organizing all of the thousands of photos they use in their catalog and website.

on the train there was some ad for a gene therapy research company of something, and someone had written "Pharma only cares about profits. everything else is secondary" on the ad, so I wrote "Fortunately, profits are good at motivating them to cure diseases."

don't get me wrong, I think that profit taking precedence over equal access to care and things like that is fucked up too, and I think that there is a lot of room for improvement in healthcare, but I really hate simplistic, dismissive, whiny complaining.

At 5AM I had yet to go to sleep. I was on my way home from my ex's place and decided to get something to eat.

So, I pulled into the Kroger's parking lot and bought a box of those Kashi Pumpkin Flax granola bars. Sat in the parking lot, like I was in high school again, and smoked down a cigarette while munching on one of the bars. Afterwards I went home at 65MPH through the neighborhoods and almost hit someone who decided to wear all black and cross the street in front of me.

I woke up my friend in Cali as soon as I got home. We talked for a bit then I went to bed with the puppies in tow, because they had been whining about being locked in their kennel.

Now, cigarette time again. Yum.

Possibly. I have a friend who skydives all the time (though I'm not sure if he goes with the outfit I jumped with) and he takes his XTi every time.

But trust me, you wouldn't want to free-fall with it the first time. The first time it's hard enough wrapping your mind around the fact that your skin is breathing for you, and that you are at terminal velocity

First it was Buffalo Wild Wings, then tennis (for the first time in longer than I can remember), then the bars, and now...a moderate-to-highly intoxicated work-out session at 12:15 in the morning! :-D

Today was full of awesome things!

I bought a 2GB flash drive, installed OpenBSD on it, and then loaded it onto my TP. After some troubleshooting I discovered the CD drive is, for lack of a better word, fucked.

I played in a poker tourney sponsored by somethingawful. I placed 22. I had a hand that crippled me:

KK vs. AK:

Rainbow Flop: Blanks
Turn: A
River: Blank

didn't notice a big difference between ff 3 and 2. point #1 is definitely right though

i have chrome on my laptop, use a bookmark bar just like ffox.

I had Mexican Coke for the first time. Unfortunately it was both a tasty and painful experience. When I opened it, it had been shaken in a car and left in the heat. The result was a high powered rocket lid that impacted my eye. It's now bloodshot and bruised. I'm glad I didn't get a scratched cornea.

Quite delicious though, I must say. Thank you, cane sugar!
