Ohh Nooo!

I have three celebrity contacts on Flickr, how am I gonna make the cut!?!?!

For those of you who aren’t in the know, Flickr is going to limit contacts to 3,000.  Only 300 people on Flickr have more than 3,000 contacts, but I’m pretty sure that a couple of my contacts are in that 300.  Damn.  I love having one of my favorite musicians as a contact, as tenuous a social contact as that may be.  I don’t imagine the other two will cut me, I’m not sure.  007Ben can name at least one of them, but the other is a lightening rod of controversy and I think she’s awesome!  (Rosie, you rule)

Maybe I should use MySpace…. LoL Naw…

A Quick flu update, I think I’ll need to ask for the super-duper flu meds tomorrow at the pharmacy, as I don’t feel much better today than I did yesterday.  I feel better, but I’m still feeling poorly.

Take me Back

If you were told you could relive a moment in your life, which would you choose?

I would not have told Dan his GF had cheated on him.  I would have just went to the party he was at, sat down and just hung out.  He wasn’t my friend, and I should have kept my friends confidence over some dudes feelings.

It’s not like they had such a great relationship, I spent two hours hanging out with her at work, he was at a party.

I lost a friend and gained a rep as someone who couldn’t be trusted with a secret.  He dropped a relationship he didn’t really care for.

I was a putz.

I’d do that over. If I could.

Happy Birthday to Jen

NiteGirl is 28 today, she bought herself a new pet to celebrate (a Gerbil – Kang) we had some friction over this, as I don’t want another pet.  Oh well.  She got “The Burning Crusade” and a new WoW subscription from me.  NiteCat and I have been playing Wow Standard together, I like it more I guess.

Things continue to adjust at the office. we’ll see how that comes out.

I’m getting sick, my skin hurts all over and I’m achy.  Maybe the flu?

Ah well, I burned 800+ calories on the Elliptical machine today, running about 2 miles.  Not amazing, but it was uphill for about half the time.

I really need to get on the scales and figure out how much I really weigh.

I dropped Verizon last week, after non-stop 120 dollar (plus) cell phone bills for almost no usage, I’m really just sick of them.

I'm trying to sell a camera on Craigslist and received the following query:

Hello,

without thinking, I went ahead and replied.  The ip up there is in Africa.  Why would
someone over in Africa be looking at my listing for Eugene?

Damn, I think I'm about to be annoyed by a scammer (and probably spammers)  time to
turn up the antispam settings on my mail server.

What's best for the customer

Frozen out of Car again

I have a new teef

Seriously Messed up

well, a half tooth.  I had a huge cavity in a front tooth.  It was so bad I almost never showed my teeth if I could avoid it.  Today I was at Dr. Dunham’s office and got fillings (and half-a-tooth) in the front. I have a bunch more to go later on.  It was such a breezy visit, walk in, freezing (no pain and didn’t feel the needles) some drilling and filling (with resin) and out again.

During the drilling they were spraying cold water and air across my teeth, that hurt like hell.

Home Today

I’m at home today, with a sore throat.  It’s not too severe, but at the same time I have a ton of sick time saved, so I need to burn some of it.

I was out with Jason and 007Ben last night, we hit the sushi place and had a good time.  Jason was twitchy and excited because he was jacked up on cocaine. Cocaine, being an energy drink that tastes like liquefied lick-m-stix with pepper in it.  I drank one, it was an experience; Jason drank three in rapid succession. He may have actually been able to power a small turbine and light up some of New York.

Like I said earlier, we were out for Dinner at Sushi-Domo, in Eugene. A great sushi place that has the “Domo – Boat” a selection of sushi, sashimi  and chicken.  Usually, these things last at least 30-40 minutes while we eat and talk.  This thing might have lasted 20 minutes, maybe.  We tore it up.

Jason and I are both big guys, and Ben is a stunt eater, the boat didn’t stand a chance.

We came back to the casa nitemayr and watched “Dirty Work”, I had a great night.

Boring New Years

I think NiteGirl drank more than I did over New Years; that’s saying a great deal since she drank about two bottles of wine.  She was feeling depressed because her sister brought up her Grandpa, and NiteGirl just can’t seem to get over her Grandpa’s death.  (It has been a couple of years now) So she drank, partly to forget, partly to just get her drunk on.

Otherwise it was all quiet for New Years, we rang it in at Midnight EST so that NiteCat could participate and we fired

Popped out
Popped out

off some poppers (large and small).

It made a big mess, which is still pretty much hang around today.  We fired the majority of the streamer type stuff onto the tree but inevitably some got on the ground and will require a good vacuum to pick it up.

Kodos had an accident with some pipe cleaners over the weekend and needed some first-aid.  He will site for me and take some cleaning and anti-biotic cream but struggles if NiteGirl and NiteCat are near (I think he knows I can put up with the biting and scratching better than the girls)
On a cool note, NiteCat was wathcing “The Future is Wild” on Animal Planet and announced that she could tell it was fake animals, because they looked like computer animation.

Proud?  I could have burst.

By the way, she DOES believe in Evolution.  The Cavemen argument works.
