Sorry I haven’t made a post here sooner.
The main inspiration for making a post after some four months of hiatus
is that I’ve received two blind ‘feedbacks’ this week that are
of… questionable intent. I will respond to them
anonymously to protect the (hopefully) innocent:
According to my posted birthday, if you do a little math, you’ll see
that I’m almost 30. The messages, according to the pages of their
senders, came from someone who is almost 19, and someone who’s almost
If you’re just saying hi, and you actually want to read this stuff,
good for you; I’ve got absolutely no problem with that, but be careful
what sort of message you’re sending.
(There’s a blinking advert at the top of this typing page asking me
which Olsen Twin is hotter so that I can win a Sony PSP. If I
wanted a Sony PSP, I could ride down to the store and buy one
today… maybe somebody’s saying I’m getting too old for this
Anyway, the news story about the middle school girls in Oregon comes to
mind. (Fast paraphrase: A group of middle school girls as
young as 12 years old offered sex acts to grown men in exchange for meth. How
adorable. Maybe Springer needs to make a comeback?)
Despite not finding the time, energy, or inspiration to write here,
things are going pretty well. I’m on my way to paying my dad back
for the rented station wagon that moved me here, and work-related
things are pretty stable. I work about five and a half days a
week, the extra half usually coming from the toy store (I transferred
when I moved, and they usually offer me about a day a week. Aside
from not being home or elsewhere to do things, it’s pretty much the
same as having the day off and being paid for it) so by the time that
seventh day rolls around, I usually just want to chill out, and
something that wants or needs doing is bound to come up and occupy most
of that day.
My car was recalled; its seat belt sensors replaced free-of-charge by
the dealer. I just had to wait a week while the parts came down
from Ohio, and wouldn’t have cared enough to have it done if it didn’t
cause the airbags to shut off as a consequence.
I’m thinking of changing things up in the blog, because a huge reason
why I haven’t written in a long time is that I don’t want this to just
be about rumblings from work. If I write too many things about my
conversations at work, certain privacy laws come into play and I could
get myself in some serious trouble.
Any ideas are welcome, otherwise I’ll probably use this space for project details soon.
Hope everyone’s okay, and thanks for checking up on me. Mr. Sitemeter says somebody visits about three times a week…
Best wishes to everyone.
See you next time.
