So heavy. Haven’t gotten back on the exercise wagon. It’s harder than ever to muster the will power to do it. Weak mind, that’s me.
E3 was meh this year. Then again, I’m not the excited gamer I once was. Not to mention to play anything really cool you have to wait an hour+ in a line. I’m not that desparate.
Vegas next week. Monday-Wednesday. Renting a car to drive out, trying to get a Camry so I can guage how comfortable they are. Hopefully they have it in stock when I pick it up. Going to a licensing expo. Should be interesting.
No time to work out lately, and it’s taking its toll on me. I’m up in weight and down in energy and well-feeling. Fail.
And the Motowhoops guy hasn’t gotten back to me about working on the 900, so it’s just sitting in my back yard. Not that it’s a big deal, I don’t have it in my name yet anyway. Furley hasn’t gotten me the pink slip to transfer it.
Got closer to a diamond. Found a site that sells loose diamonds, so now it’s more a matter of finding the right setting. I suppose I should actually BUY the diamond before-hand, but it’s tough to plop down that kind of money in one stroke.
I am not.
There’s a number of things going on, and things that should be going on but aren’t. I feel like all the things I should be doing, will be gotten to. But with each day that goes by, they aren’t any closer.
On my way in to work this morning, I thought about a close call I had on my way home last night. An SUV almost crossed traffic in front of me. Had I hit them, or they hit me, that could have been it. I felt like the last thought I’d have had was “this is going to be a hassle for my loved ones”. Then for some reason on the drive in, I thought that maybe I haven’t been living in reality. To some extent, I’m part of the “ignorance is bliss” population. I feel like everything is fine, and I forget that life could end at any second.
I take life for granted. Everyone does, but it’s hard to live ‘today’. ‘Life’ gets in the way. The ‘Rat Race’ distracts us.
I don’t know where I’m going with all this. Like I said, I’m not focused right now. It’s hard to get back there, I don’t know how to do it.
There was a tornado there recently. It’s being reported that 24 people died, 9 of which are children. RIP to those who lost their lives, and condolances to their families, but I have to say…
Oklahoma is known for tornados. WHY would anyone continue living there? There are tornados every year! It’s like choosing to live at the base of an active volcano. What is wrong with you?
Hey, this cliffside is known for landslides dropping 3oo feet, let’s build a house on it! Said no one ever.
Emailed them this morning. Apparently the guy’s name is Shohei, and it’s just him. I’m expecting to be without the bike for about 2 weeks once I bring it to him. It’s just a matter of WHEN I can bring it to him. Not just day, but time too. He’s only open Tuesday through Saturday, 9am to 6pm. It’d have to be a Saturday, and not this Saturday since I’m going to Seattle this weekend. Whatever, I’m not rushing into riding. I have plenty of time.
Like work, I rarely post about political issues here. But like the last work post, I just got annoyed when reading a post about some whistleblower involved in a government gun thing. And it wasn’t even the news about it, it was the comments from people that annoyed me. People spouting off about how Obama is the worst President ever, impeach him, the current government has never been this bad, blah blah blah. All these people are idiots. EVERY President since I was born has been terrible. Every government has been slow and had corruption. These people only want themselves to be pleased, they don’t understand the government has to cater to its supporters, AND its non-supporters. It’s like trying to plan an event so as many of your friends can go as possible, and everyone wants it to be a different date. At some point, you just have to decide on a date and those that can’t make it, too bad. That’s these people, they’re the ones that can’t make the date, so they get pissed off about it.
If they think the government is so corrupt, and the President is so terrible, why don’t they run for office. They think ‘America’ is just like them, so it should be an easy win right?

After last nights’ stationary bike ride, my legs are exhausted. Not in pain, not really sore, just tired. So I decided to take a break leading into the weekend. I still got up early, just didn’t ride.
I love music. I love the way certain music sounds, and how it evokes emotion in me. It can make me sad, happy, inspired, motivated, tearful. It can make me move, or just relax. I like a decent range of music, and love mash-ups. This is the latest from Robin Skouteris, and it’s got some good pieces in it.
I don’t typically talk about work here. The one time I did, I got in trouble for it. That was my own fault, I totally brain farted. But I just have to vent a little on something that’s been going on for ages. My current role is not a problem solver, it’s a problem finder and informer. Because of my experience, I am able to offer solutions on most things, but when I make one suggestion and it gets shot down, it annoys the hell out of me when I’m asked for a ‘better’ solution that won’t incurr cost. It’s my job to find the problem, and their job to solve it.
I used to be in the other role. When I was told there was a problem, it was my responsibility to find the, and/or suggest, solution(s) to it. Why has that changed?
This frustration is making me want chocolate.
Was up to 217 at one point, but started riding in the mornings and am back counting calories. Throwing the stationary bike in the mix at night, and I’ve been way below my calorie target for the day so this ‘should’ help me lose weight.
I gotta say though, my legs are tired.
I’m extra emotional today. I don’t know why. I’ve read about 5 different news stories so far today and each one has swelled emotions in me. I haven’t broken the tear shield yet, but I feel like it’s close to bursting. Hang on Me, hang on.
In other news, I ordered a BluRay with WiFi and it came yesterday. Of course I forgot to bring it home. I’m a winner like that.
