I’m Dying

September 24, 2008

Well not REALLY dying, but I have some flu they’ve given a name to that causes me to go partially blind when I vommit really hard. I went to the Doc yesterday, they gave me some pills, I slept for 9 hours. when I woke up I was drenched head to toe in my own sweat. Normally I wouldn’t complain about 9 hours sleep except I didn’t know I was going to sleep for 9 hours, I was only supposed to be there for about 45 minutes. Tremendous pain in the ASS.

Anyways. Still feel like crap today, but the shop might explode if I’m not here, or potentially people will break down the door screaming they want their computers right now. When it comes to computers, people do not understand that this stuff takes TIME. This crap doesn’t happen over night. No we can’t give you an accurate estimate as to how long it will take. Yes we will try to get it done as soon as possible. No we can’t bump your computer ahead of everyone elses. No I can’t help that you’re in a poker tournament on Friday.

<sigh>

House Warming on Friday. Here’s hoping I’m verticle for it 😛

OH HEY! My Landlord bagged an Elk last night! It’s her first ever elk so she was pretty excited. I’m going to have to brush up on my wild meat cooking apparently. That having been said I have no idea where she’s puting all this meat. As best as I’ve been made aware all we have is the tiny little fridge freezer. Maybe she’s got a cellar.

Or maybe she knows something we don’t know.

For those of you curious as to how my purging or…. what was it?… Crap I can’t remember what it was called… That diet thing I went on. I’m trying desperately not to look at the last post I made.

Okay, I cheated and looked. It was Detoxing.

So sue me!

Anyways, for those of you curious as to how that went… it pretty much didn’t. I realized I didn’t have the funds to feasably do something like that so I instead opted just to buy a lot of fruit and vegitables instead. I’m liking the healthier food, it’s good for me.

Mr. K opts to say nothing and continues to read my comic books.

Work is going fairly well. My owner is into financial trouble a little further than I thought so that’s kind of scary, but Wal-Mart has assured me that I’m welcome back any time. Which I won’t be taking them up on. I’ll go work the rigs or some damn thing. I don’t just want to make bills, I want to save money for school. That’s the plan anyways… Who knows, this computer tutoring thing is actually working out fairly well.

I had a guy ask me today how I learned all of this stuff. It was hard to explain. I told him I just played. He laughed and I said I was serious. I’ve learned in computers that anything you do can generally be undone, so when my father told younger me not to touch the computer, I did anway, learned how to change everything, and then put it back.

And I have no idea where I was going with this post because I’ve allowed this to distract me.

Beware the Bear

I read an article on Detoxing today. Or more accurately I glanced at the title and thought “hey, Jewels used to do that all the time… or… well not all the time… and it wasn’t… fuck it whatever, I want to be healthy.” So I’m going on a Seven Day Detox as of 5 PM today. I have bought many apples, some snap peas, some carrots, and a cucumber. Cucumber sandwhiches and soup for dinners, and carrots, peas, and apples for snackies. I’m not entirely sure how it’ll go, but I’m pretty excited to see how it comes out.

If any of the 11 of you have any Detox stories, let me know. I will be kind of journaling the event here, so stay tuned.

Then again, there’s an excellent chance I’ll just forget to post.

I’m back fixing computers again. Not entirely sure if I mentioned that or not, but I will now. I’m a computer technician with Moody computer services and hot damn does it feel good to get back on the horse. Like REALLY good. Everything just feels natural, like I never stopped doing it. My boss is a pretty solid guy and a lot of our outlooks on the computer industry as a whole are similar (a few minor exceptions but I can deal with that). I’m pretty excited to be here and to see where this is going.

Huge praise again for God putting…. what was his monicker? I think I called him Ba… but more recently he’s been El’Roboto… Whatever. He helped me get the job and I appreciate it.

Computer has been running fairly well since the wireless card fiasco. Got a warning last night about the paging file possibly being corrupted, but that may have been a reminent from the wireless threatening to take my computer out, so we’ll see. Glad to have Adrianna back though.

Not so glad that I don’t have Microsoft Office, but I’ll deal.

Working at Wal-Mart again, or perhaps more accurately still. Not sure how long I’ll stay. I like the company for the most part, but I also know I’m getting pretty tired of working 24/7 and I’m looking to change that.

I really want to play Risk.

I’m having a House Warming on the 26th, and as it turns out the place I’m at has never had a House Warming EVER. So I’m pretty stoked.

I’m not stoked about what’s going on with my Land Lord though! She had forgotten that she said my friend could have the other room and started showing it to other people! I really don’t want to leave this place as it makes cost of living SUPER cheap, but I don’t want to screw over my friend either. Need to pray.

Anyways, back to House Warming. If you want to come I’m going to be setting up a facebook thing shortly, so when that’s set up I’ll link it. Not that I think any of you would actually click on it. I apparently have 10 readers but only one of you comments on anything… Oh actually Anthropology does… but I have no clue who that is. So hopefuly he/she can come out and I can be like “WOAH!”

I think it is my Wireless card. I can’t say for certain at this point, but now that I’ve removed the thing my computer is suddenly very lively. Where as two hours ago I was afraid it might turn into another Hell Gate, much like Joel’s Hell Gate. That’s the nick name I gave his laptop.

It was a gate.

To Hell.

I’m pretty much moved into my new place (read: Half my shit still isn’t unpacked) and I have to say I’m pretty stoked to be in a place that is really my own. I’m grateful to the family that gave me a place to stay, God put them in my path not just to give me a roof over my head, but I’m glad to be somewhere paying rent and making home. To christen the place I bought a new book shelf, a new computer/work desk, and a dresser from the Sally Anne all for $100. I’m probably going to buy myself a decent office chair too, but that depends on how much money I make delivering pizzas tomorrow. And yes I am saving up for school, but I do kind of need this stuff.

I won’t lie, I’m probably going to splurge a bit on the chair though.

I will get you guys some pictures, but I need to re-install all of my photo software and I actually need to find the USB cable for my camera.

I also need to unpack, and this takes presidence over pretty well everything.

I start my new job on Monday, pretty stoked I gotta tell yah. Even more so since my managers at Wal-Mart begged me to stay, which lets me know that I really do have a pretty solid work ethic. I’m pretty proud of that.

For those among you that would lift a word up in prayer, please remember Chipmunk as she is starting to adjust to University life. It sounds like she’s enjoying herself, but a little extra help couldn’t hurt.

Big prayers to my Brother as he begins his new life with his new wife in his house on 3rd and trife…

Don’t worry, I’m dissapointed in myself.
