B. and I did a fair bit of shopping today. Amazingly the freaker had never been in a Toys R Us before so I was pleased to be present for the maiden voyage. We found some great toys for her nephew and for some older friends. heh. It was a lot of fun shopping with bdot, we, were both however pretty tired by dinner time.
On a personal note. Thanks for listening B.. Your sensitivity and compassion was deeply appreciated. Thank you. I’m looking forward to sharing many Christmases (Christmasi? Heh) horsing around with you.
Still wondering about getting a Y. membership. I *know* it is a good idea, perhaps once a stable position is secure would be a more suitable time.
1. Do you like to shop? Why or why not?
Yes…But…I get tired after a few hours. The dry atmosphere, crowds and most sales staff also work against my enjoyment of shopping. I prefer to shop with someone, such as, oh I dunno, B.!?
2. What was the last thing you purchased?
Chocolate bars. One with cookies, the other with almonds and toffee.
3. Do you prefer shopping online or at an actual store? Why?
Depends. I like researching online to *know* about the product but like to see the product in person in most cases before I buy. Does that answer the question? -smirk-
4. Did you get an allowance as a child? How much was it?
Yes. Don’t recall how much.
5. What was the last thing you regret purchasing?
My XBOX. Not because it sucks, but because of what I paid for it. It is now MUCH MUCH less. Sigh. A regrettably impulse buy. It won’t happen again. (hopefully – blush)
‘In July, Black told London’s XFM Radio that he still dreams about a Pixies reunion and he revealed that the group occasionally gets together for informal jam sessions, “but not for public consumption.” Black said his fantasies of a reunion were like “those schoolboy dreams when you don’t do your homework and you don’t study for the test. I’m at the gig and we’re hanging out, but it’s an utter failure and I don’t know the songs and hardly anyone turns up for the gig and people walk out. That’s what I’m afraid of … that it’d be a big, big failure.’
Finally the Sabres gave me some birthday joy with a big win over the Capitals… 5-2… and Satan ended his scoring slump.
I have moved my e-mail completely over to Linux. I only use Windoze now for apps not on Linux and gaming. (Which is still a fair bit…) but it is nice to get out from under the massive micro$oft rock of dependency.
Every year it happens. I can’t stop it and neither can you, Time ages me a year. So… now I’m 32. Up one from last year. -grin- In the big picture I guess things are good. There are unquestionably some serious concerns in my life… but I guess that is what life is all about. Learning, experiencing, sharing, taking, daring, failing, succeeding, small victories… and searching for the right mix of all those to be happy. I’m certainly close. Closer to being happy than I have been in a long time. The past year has seen some dramatic, life altering changes for sure. In spite of the initial unpleasantness of much of it… I think I’m in a better situation than before. Having found someone that consistently brings a smile to my face helps considerably as well. So I’m looking forward to the next year. I’m sure it will have a typical slice of the aforementioned mix.
Fun November 26th facts.
Thanks to everyone who has expressed well wishes.
Update: November 26th page is gonzo.
It was a pretty uneventful birthday… not that I care. I usually don’t like to be the centre of attention. Still… something was lacking today. The house was empty most of the day… it was quiet… too quiet. Quiet makes me think. Thinking when you’re 32 and not where you want to be is not a good thing. Aging is a demotivator for me clearly. Yes… I’m sensitive to a lot right now… I can see the end of my contract in the near future… and have not found a replacement yet… it is bugging the shit out of me. I’ve had career-ish jobs but they -for various reasons- have ended. I hate restarting. Shouldn’t I be at the point where I have some stability? Shouldn’t things be getting easier for me NOT harder? Are my expectations too high? Yes, feel the frustration. Gah… sigh…
Yes unsung has had a few minor (and seasonal) improvements. I’ve added a new graphic feature to compliment the existing site header on the top of the page. Also the wallboard now has the option for subject. (The empty default is about my sex change operation, so be sure to enter a subject. 🙂
It was another wonderful weekend with bdot. She made a great effort for my birthday and made me feel like a imported designer Italian suit. Thanks hon. Not to mention the thoughtful (but mean) gifts. It is getting brrrrr.
Creepy referer of the day:
Embalming because of the Egyptian LEGO pics… Jez!
In case you are ever lucky enough, as I was this evening, you must try B.’s Pork Tenderloin…. Mmmmm MMmmmm! Yummers.
We settled in to watch the Italian Job (new version) this eve. It was perfectly mindless entertainment. Good night!
