ok I apologize in advance for creating this pointless thread...

but things have slowed down considerably here at work and the threads are equally as slow...

anyone else having a slow/down day?!

I cannot wait to leave here at 5...I'll be going for a long ride after work...:D

I think apple pretty much stumped most of the rumours flying around by releasing so many updates/new products in such a short period of time. Everyone seems to be recovering, not sure what to talk about now that it seems apparent that more updates won't be coming for a while....

You know apple are doing well, when the rumours sites aren't that busy :D

No resolution, just the same crap, never heard back after the final one. I went running about 2 miles with the dog, down to Jones point where she chased swallows for about 10 minutes and then ran home. Good little run, we're in training for the 1 mile dog race in sept. Figure if we keep at it we'll get under 5 minutes, which would be awesome. We did it in 6:08 last year and I hadn't been running much before that, coming off an injury.

Doing a little chicken breast on the bbq tonight and working on my iPhoto updates for the web - wedding pics.

Aye, tis been a slow day on the rumor front. I returned to work after having my week off and came back to a few issues that need resolution. One powerbook G3 (Pismo) is going to Apple tomorrow, a peecee needs to be personalized for a new user but that person doesn't have either an NT or exchange account yet :rolleyes: .

As for tonight... Grillin time :D. I have some rib-eye steaks that could be cooked... or maybe I will just make some taco's tonight and have beef tomorrow... decisions decisions decisions... :D

but that is one hell of a time...under 5 mins...6 mins is still great with an injury...damn I miss running!!

The winning time last year was 4:50, if I can manage that, whoo hoo, never won a race before. But hell, if I come in the top 3 that would be fine too. I'll see how things go, I might run in the men's open, which is 20 min earlier, that winning time was just 4:47 last year. I'm confident I'll be able to get close to 5, I'm going to push myself to get under it.

On the first half mile of the last race we were at 2:40 - I couldn't beleive it, that would have put us at 5:20, but I thought we were going too fast (never having run just a mile before and not knowing how to pace myself), I slowed down. I shouldn't have, the last 200 yards I was sprinting and passed 3 runners, could have had a fourth but didn't want to crowd the finishline, especially running with the dog, whom I was almost pulling at that point.

So we'll see, I've got about 3 1/2 months, should be able to do if I keep at it.

At least there's a little company picnic that I got invited to at 5:00...the place I used to work at part time, the Fleet Theater in Balboa Park. (first Omnimax dome theater in the world!) Free food on the barbi down by the water...maybe THAT'll wake me up.:rolleyes:

duke: i hear you about winning the race.... on a different level... i played in a golf tourney with my dad and two of his coworkers this past thursday.... i won't bore you with the details, but we lost by just 1 shot! and my dad and one of the other guys is not good... so it was me and this other guy and we nearly won.... i've never come that close. it would've been nice. then again, i think i'll live.

Every once in a while I'll ride to work, 11 miles one way into DC, and its mostly along the Potomac River. Well, when the wind is blowing down the river its a killer. But on the return trip you fly. There have been the occassional days where the wind changes mid day and you have to go up wind both ways, ugggh!

Running is great. Got to be quick to be a QB for football. You have to know the footwork and know how to drop back, step up, scramble, 3-5-7 step drops, roll outs, picks, and all the other whoopdi doos.

I run track too. I dont remember my times, but I know in the long jump, I jumped 15'4. (15 feet, 4 inches.) Got first place down here for that, but i am pretty sure its because I run fast...

I hear that...I actually ran better alone than with someone. I had one of those arm-wraparound walkmans that I always listened to. I tell u, if I didn't have that thing it would have been damned boring...

Plus it helped me not to concentrate on my breathing so much...which we all know is a vital aspect of running. When I didn't have it, I'd hear myself breathe hard after a while and I'd start thinking of how worn out I was feeling...but with it I didn't pay attention and was able to push myself harder...

just one of those weird ways I had of getting through it...;)

well, it was happening soon. the guy just called again and some problem came up at work that he's gotta take care of. so we're on for tomorrow.

i hate to think he's hosing me. he could've done that easily enough before, and this way he has to keep bothering with calling me. but i know my mom will see it that way, and thus will get kinda pissed and want me to find another job.

well i got mixed up with threads... but here's what i kinda said in the other one.

this guy is pretty much the last of the local graphics/video places... so in that sense, he's worth sitting around for, in that if i can at all get a job that will help me in my career, then it's much more valuable.

that said, i realize. i've looked for other jobs, but there's nothing 'good'. so i'm kinda biting my lip and hoping this works cause if not... well. there's a new burger king opening in town.... it'd be interesting to be a veggie working there eh?....

but yeah, i'll keep an eye out. i actually have to go meet my bro's friend cause he filmed a show this past weekend and i'm gonna edit it... it's at least $500 gig so it's not tiny. and i'll feel a bit productive in the mean time....

as mischief has said to me & here in the threads..."whatever's happening is the right thing"...

yeah, i mean. i really want a good job. ie, something that i can learn from and use in my career. (as a struggling artist... ha). but i wouldn't mind too much getting a desk computer job. it would pay much less and more importantly. i'd get no future job experience really.... but yeah, at least at this point, i don't need the job to survive physically (mentally is another issue... ha). and everything will work out. on that note, i'm an optimist....

I spent my summers (3) cutting down trees for a trees service in Connecticut. That was the hardest job I ever had, I'd come home, take a shower and pass out - and I was 20. I was in the best shape of my life, though, climbing trees all day, hauling brush and lifting logs.

All the other guys were pretty tough too, and there would always be some sort of horsing around. I remember one guy grabbing me in a headlock and saying I'd never get out of it. Ha, I reached down lifted him up - all the while he still had me in the headlock, till his legs were in the air above his feet and I walked over to the side of one of the trucks and preceded to bang his head against it. He let go on the second shot...ah, nostalgia....

I still have all my climbing gear and occassionally do work for firewood, but that was another thread. So even though I didn't get work experience, I at least learned a trade that comes in useful now and again. So the point of all this, if you can't get a job doing what you plan on doing after graduation, don't narrow your search, take something that might come in useful.

those emails aren't too cheesy...every now & then one of my best friends sends me those really long "learning a lesson from life" type of emails...usually cr@p I'd just delete...but sometimes when it's only addressed to me I'll read them...and I've been surprised...

it's the little things in life that matter most...to me at least ;)

yeah, being a religious kind of guy, i agree. they will all work out.

no no, the emails aren't cheesy. of course not. it was from my girlfriend to me. not cheesy. and it was just alight, cheery hello. i'm saying, my post where i started talking about the little words cheering someone up etc... that was getting a bit cheesy. ha

and i agree, the little things. such as a couple or 10 smileys... ha

no worries there... ;)

Remember about 4 weeks ago after my girlfriend & I split up, I started talking about it on here? I started a thread...and somehow I got everyone to show their sensitive sides by exchanging "stories":eek:

that was quite interesting...helpful...and a bit cheesy...but damnit....I wasn't alone on that one! :D ;) :cool:

btw...I only used 5 smileys here...I actually think there's a limit to how many one can include in a post...I've gotten a message in the past saying there were too many...:confused:

ok..so 6 smiley....whatever...he he he

yeah i remember that. and i was hesitant to mention my girlfriend's email cause you and duke were the main ones going in the thread at that point so i didn' want to open any wounds... sorry if i did.

and yeah, stories... i don't have horror stories, but then again, i've had only 2 girlfriends. one was in middle school, hardly all that real. and then the current one, whom i am pretty sure will be the last.

smileys, yeah. i've gotten that message once too. me and row-dog were going back and forth about eye rolls and we kept upping the ante. well, i got shut down.... ha. i bet it's like 10 or so...

nice to see you changed the sig to a little less anti-jelloshotsrule... it used to be something like "according to...." which seemed a little like blowing off my title for you or something.... and down to 2 smileys within.... that's a record low isn't it???? :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

for the sake of saving a fraction of a second in refreshing the info for other users...if they actually come to this thread...I opted not to quote your last post...

but no worries...no wounds to fear...I haven't had the final resolution with her yet...but for the most part I've gone on with my life...there are times when I feel a little down on myself...but it's natural...I just haven't let it affect my life much...I have way too much going for me to slow down over a woman...

to be honest...she was the 3rd long-term relationship I've had since I was 16...and I've never really just dated women in general...so it's something I'm definitely looking forward to doing...he he he :D

and for the sig...I had to fix it...it just didn't sound all that nice...so now u have been given credit where credit's deserved...;)

I don't know what my record low is....I'm sure I'd posted a few times without using any smileys....just don't ask when or where...

i'll go without quotes too..


good that you're optimistic and not letting it get you down.

i have never "dated" either. i kinda see any relationship as ideally having the potential for marriage. clearly, middle school is different. but hey.

yeah, it sounds better now (the signature).


i got shut down for too many smileys last time cause you had them in your post, which i quoted... so i just took them out...

as a moderator you should nkow the rules. ha

and.... out

ok...I'm still learning all the rules...I've helped duke out a little...and I've gotten some as well...

u just had to bust my chops on that one didn't u? ;)

and that's damned funny how u got shut out for quoting all of my smileys...he he he...how ironic?! :eek: :D

I feel the same way as u...any relationship has the potential for a lifetime committment...unless u know from the start it won't last...which I have subjected myself to with a 2.5 year deal...don't ask me what I was thinking...:rolleyes:

I honestly wish it were easy to influence everyone to feel optimistic & positive about all life has to offer...it is hard sometimes to hold that attitude all the time...but the more one does it...the easier it becomes...;)

gotta use some quotes this time.... what do you mean by the first two paragraphs? i wasn't trying to bust your chops without quotes.... but if that's how you take it, then sweet! ha.

ironic indeed about dems smileys... haha.

yeah, i think too often folks are just out to get some ass these days.... whereas i think most/all relationships should at least be potentially long term. if not, then you're basically going in admitting you don't have long term plans, and thus just want some ass. which i don't believe in....

and yeah, the best way to do it is be positive yourself. and in order to do that, it's best to surround yourself with positive folks.... if you like indie rock or punk music in the slightest i'd suggest you check out sense field (i feel like i'm their pr person or something).. they're not all that hard sounding, in fact, some songs are quite soft and they are extremely positive.... if you want, pm me and i can try to set you up with a song or two or three....

one quote from them: "in the light of things hope". good stuff.

I was talking about u giving me a little ***** for knowing the rules since I'm a moderator...he he he...;)

I'm not into sleeping around either...it's just not what I really want...

my dad's always told me that...."to be successful...surround yourself with people who are..."

I see how it works in all areas of life :D

ahh, now i follow. sometimes (often) i'm slow.

booyah!
