Shoot me now

Thursday, September 25th, 2003 | Pete Stuff | Comments Off on Shoot me now

Today has proven two very important things about my personality:

  • I work very well under pressure and a deadline.
  • I’m pretty damn unpleasant to be around while I”m in that mode! (ask kevin what I was like last night if you doubt that! 😉

Details to follow!

Not so impressed

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2003 | Pete Stuff | Comments Off on Not so impressed

So i tried out the Day and Night contacts that Ray recommended… Not as impressed with them as he was… For the first few days my eyes had a great deal of trouble switching focus – when I left the computer to go out side i couldn’t focus for a while. The lenses seemed to take about 15 minutes or so to settle in in the morning during which time my eyes were pretty uncomfortable.. Since the whole point of paying the extra to be able to wake up and see in the morning and I really couldn’t I decided to pass.. Back to my AcuVue

It never ends

So the weekend was crazy… Water heater went out AGAIN Sunday.. Turned out guy downstairs had gas work done saturday that blew out the pilot but you can imagine the look on my face when I woke up to cold water again..

Saturday was a company Picnic for kevin’s company and then a birthday party for my ex.. Both were actually reasonably fun. Got to see Lance’s sisters who are both very nice and I hadn’t seen since the break up.

Got a LOT done yesterday though and the house is starting to look normal again though. We spent the day yesterday avoiding the heat and working on the garage. Kevin built shelves into our storage space while I organized the crap and put it all away. Then made plans for the den… Place is actually coming back together. My desk faces out the window to the street now which is very nice cuz I can see people walking by and see the birds. Funny part is that I think the neighbors think I’m watching them – my monitor is hidden (cuz I don’t like people seeing my computers from the street) so it looks like I’m just sitting at the window staring out for no good reason. Not checking them out though – for real. Do catch a glance from time to time but honestly – not all that interesting.

Anyway. nuff of this.. Need to be as productive today at work as I was at home this weekend so no more blogging for me today..

over and out

Judgement Day

Today is the last day for the little buggers. Orkin is coming to take them away. I have to assume they’re going to put them in a nice little box and release them into the wild where they can roam free…

I’m a little worried they’re going to rise up and attack us while we sleep!

Resources on the USA Patriot Act

Friday, September 19th, 2003 | Politics | Comments Off on Resources on the USA Patriot Act

So over lunch I was reading more articles on the USA PATRIOT Act and realized I didn’t really understand what it was all about except from the dogma thats been thrown around. ACLU says its BAD BAD BAD and the administration says its this wonderful thing that protects us from the bad guys. I’m definitely more inclined to believe the ACLU than I am to believe John Ashcroft but it occurred to me that, rather than blindly believe anyone, it might be worth gathering info on my own. I found some really good information so I figured I’d share. Yes – some of the sources are more left leaning than others but what I liked is they had a LOT of really good references to other information so you can draw your own conclusions.
