Not feeling that great tonight.

What are you supposed to do when most of your day involved going to the courthouse and going to the Grand Jury room where everything is secret? And then going home exhausted from the day. It’s even better when you start feeling sick and then that’s it. Time to watch Chuck and House and then it’s time to go to bed. Pretty dull, really. Can’t be helped sometimes.

Once again, what the hell?

Yesterday I sat around the house all day and I had a reason to sit around. Not only was I waiting for the car dealer to call back, I was also finishing my mom’s taxes. Today I’m not sure what the hell I did other than watching a bunch of half-hour TV romantic comedies on TV – multiple episodes of Perfect Couples, Traffic Light, and Mad Love. My buddy Greg asked me why the hell was wrong with me (with the romantic comedies, not about the sitting around) and I told him that I’ve found that it’s much easier to watch the TV shows than to actually try to have a … Continue reading

Crap crapity crap.

This morning I was driving to the gym and I hit another car in the parking lot. I haven’t ever had problems pulling into a spot and nothing distracted me. Nothing except it was in the 20’s last night and I was probably colder than I should have been. I really don’t think I did much damage to the other car. I forgot to take a picture, but I remember a scuff on the fender and on the wheel cover. My bumper, however, shattered. I’m guessing that the 20-something degree weather wasn’t great for the plastic. It looks pretty bad, but that metallic looking thing on the ground is a … Continue reading

Grüner burger!

I continue to make poor choices. I was tired after jury duty, but I headed to Grüner anyway because I figured I deserved a nice hamburger. I got home and had to take a nap and the burger sat like a greasy rock in my stomach when I went to the gym. Was it worth it? I’d say yes. It’s been a long time since I talked about hamburgers and I’d say Grüner definitely has a good burger. It wasn’t one of my top burgers because the patty was on the thin side and they weren’t able to cook it as rare as I would have liked. It came with … Continue reading

Why would responsibility be so taxing?

So, the Grand Jury I’m on is only scheduled from 8-12, but of course it ran over today. That’s still only five hours of work. And it just WORE ME OUT. Actually paying attention for that long, listening to things that actually affect people’s lives. Listening to CRAZY-ASS SHIT that I can’t repeat. Hanging out in places with people I stay away from on most days, both the courthouse and public transportation. Wow. I think I’m going to award myself with a gourmet cheeseburger (but I always think of this and when do it?)

Be careful what you wish for.

Jury duty again today and I think this is the fifth time I’ve gone. Only one other time did I make it to a courtroom, and I wasn’t selected to be on the jury. This time they called my name for the Grand Jury and I didn’t have any reason to be disqualified, so now I’m stuck for a whole month! So there you have it, I get to see sausage being made. I had a heck of a time getting to sleep last night. Maybe it was because I was worried about Jury Duty. Who knows? Insomnia is as hard to figure out as what the heart wants. Mine … Continue reading

Site update or something.

Since I got a new computer a month or so ago (with a faulty Intel motherboard, btw) I figured it was time to rotate out the oldest machine. Turns out the “oldest” machine is also the one that’s accessible from the intarwebs, so you may have noticed some downtime on my sister’s web site. Nobody really looks at mine. Heh. I’m hoping that it’s all working at the moment. I had a nice, restful three-day weekend. I even was a bit hung over on Sunday morning which was sort of the plan. The real plan was to sleep in as much as possible (it being a three-day weekend and all) … Continue reading

Groupon Schmoupon.

I don’t keep up with the Groupons (or the Living Social deals or the Sharing Spree deals I have) so I had no idea that two of my coupons were expiring. Being the communist that I am, I have a hard time using Groupons (or other such coupons) for places I’ve already been, especially if it’s a place I like. I figure I should just use them for places I haven’t been. I made an exception for Belly because I’d never been there for dinner and I thought I could actually use the coupon on a date. Did I mention that I wen to NoHos last night and Belly tonight with … Continue reading

Another horrible idea.

My stock sold today, so I’m in the market for a Toyota Prius. Why do I want a Prius? Dumb reasons, obviously: backup camera – I saw this in Japan and wanted it right away quieter ride bluetooth hands-free phone – I call my poor sister every time I drive my mom’s car because I can! heated leather seats All pretty silly, but I spend at least an hour a day in the car so why not be more comfortable. There are a couple of things I don’t like about my Honda Civic Hybrid, but really, I’m happy with it. I’d like leather seats, a different color, and a navigation … Continue reading

Crummy day.

My day wasn’t that great because I wasn’t in the best of moods for the kinds of questions I was getting. You’re not supposed to answer a question with a question, especially when my question is, “What are you, some kind of moron?” and, “What the hell kind of question is that?” But even worse, a friend emailed me and told me that his sister is in the hospital and not expected to make it out. And sadly, this isn’t the only bad news I’ve heard from friends lately. Sometimes (more often that I think) I just have to distract myself or find something to cheer myself up. Right now … Continue reading

So much for my plans.

I was planning on getting drunk tonight, especially after hearing all the smarmy crap my sister and brother-in-law were up to, but I got a reality check today when I saw the message: Just remember that eating alone on Valentine’s Day is no different than any other day of your life. I figured there was no reason to be as tired tomorrow morning as I was today so I should get to sleep at a decent time. Turns out, however, that the gym cleared out early and that meant I was on clean up duty and didn’t get home on time. The biggest thing I did tonight was to order … Continue reading

Not much going on.

Yesterday I was on some sort of shopping trip with my brother-in-law where he was getting something-or-another for my sister. Something to do with St. Valentine’s day. My plan is to just go out drinking tomorrow, not go shopping for something for someone who doesn’t exist. Actually, spending imaginary money on imaginary people is cheaper and better for my health than my real plan, so I may end up doing what I’ve been most of the weekend: watching my RAID array rebuild itself unsuccessfully and restarting the rebuild again. Re-rebuilding as it were. Exciting, and it only cost me $500 in hard drives. Fun life, no?
