It was cool at first

The flesh of my thumb decided that it did not want to be associated with my thumb nail today. At least, not all along one side of the nail. The other side still seems happy to associated with it very own nail. I am not sure what I did today to bring this state of […]

Preparing for the worst

Day flew right by today. I did not do much. But I spent a lot of it worrying about one thing or another. I only have two states, worried and bored. And of the two, I would rather be worried than bored. No disasters happened today. That is a good thing. But not much really […]

I Hate Not Having Answers

I was looking over blueprints and getting depressed today. I guess that just goes to show that nothing can make me happy right now. I should have been happy. I was looking over the prints in preparation for the guys that are going to come up tomorrow and help me do what I want to […]

Normally it is not a good thing to look a gift horse in the mouth. But when you get enough of them handed to you, they start eating you out of house and home. That is the situation I found myself in when I stated playing Medieval Total War II. The people responsible for these […]

So I did what I have a bad habit of doing this time of year. I bought a computer game. In this case, I bought the gold edition of Medieval Total War II for about $11. It’s a little different than what I expected. I have not played it enough to be sure if this […]

Among other things that happened to me last week, I found out that a vendor was going to do a lot more work for me than I had thought (I am speaking of a project at work). Normally, this would be a good thing. But it was one more thing that made me depressed last […]

Not Talking

How come nobody told me about this? Maybe they did and I just forgot. But you would think I would remember something this cool. Anyway, I don’t have a lot of room to complain about people not telling me about things. While I have been spending my time on this blog whining and trying to […]

A while back, I was called back into work after working all day long. I stayed until a little past midnight. I was back home and in bed by 1:30 a.m and I was up at 6:00 a.m and back to work by 7:30 a.m. After that, I did not go home for another 36 […]
