Piles of rubble and other ramblings....

Just in a jazzy/mambo kinda mood right now. Fighting back a sore throat and trying to get my house cleaned up a bit more.

I need to find a way of organizing things that does not involve piling things into neat and not-so-neat piles. Its just not working for me anymore... One of the drawbacks to having an actual house I guess. Once you get beyond 1 or 2 rooms, you need to actually organize things, or you'll never find them.

I heard from an old high school friend today and that was cool. She actually stopped by my house a few months ago out of the blue. Considering that we hadn't really talked or even kept in touch in something like 10 years, I was surprised. Today's email was about as surprising. She asked me to call her, I did and we talked for a little bit. I think I'm going to make a concerted effort to try and actively be friends this time around (i.e. friends that actually hang out and do stuff). Last time, I was mostly shocked to hear from her, so I left it at just emailing each other random jokes and whatnot.

Damn it, I'm going to try and be more social. Its not that I'm really that anti-social, its mostly that I tend to be self-involved (not self-centered ;) It seems like I always have some project to work on or some work stuff to deal with after hours, or some random idea that I decide to pursue. Its a mad scientist thing more so than a "don't care about people" thing. Having a billion projects to do and needing down time etc... tends to make it hard to make time for people sometimes. I should make an effort more. I miss having friends around that I can randomly hang out with and talk to etc... Currently 90% of my good friends live at least a state or more away and that's just not cutting it anymore.

So - yeah, I'm going to be more social while trying to not drive myself more insane than I already am... that should be an interesting challenge.


  • Meet Dargo....

    Pixel and I missed having a little black cat around so I went to the pound Saturday afternoon and I found this little guy in need of a new home:…

  • RIP Morticia a/k/a Ninja Cat :-(

    My little black cat died tonight. It was a sudden and surprising end to a great little cat. I'm doing ok, but I will definitely miss that…

  • Still alive!

    Yes, it's true, I am still alive. Nothing particularly earth shattering has been going on lately, I've just been busy with work and then coming home…
