Also, the only animal with more germs in their mouth than humans is the komodo dragon. Or at least this is what the lady at the gas station told me when I showed her my bite. I'm always surprised by the random things that people know.
This weekend was crazy. I attended a gathering at Mary Beth's house, and I've got the bruises to prove it. One arm is bruised because I let Paul hit me in it repeatedly, the other arm is bruised because someone bit me. I also burned my finger and bruised my leg somehow. It was one of those sort of parties. I'm still sore and I think I'll take it easy for a few days until it doesn't hurt to move.
As of today, there is a National Do Not Call Registry you can sign up for to stop telemarketers from calling you. Different states are handling the registry differently, so be sure to check out how your state's handling it.
Very small indeed! If you're interested in nanotech, nanodot (think slashdot except with a nano instead of a slash) is a good place to keep up with recent developments.
Very important pea pods. And very small, too.
Hi guys this my first blog post. What the hell is a blog anyway? Some sort of log I suppose, but what is the "b" for? Anyhow gonna start myself a blog here I reckon'. Jumpin' on the perverbial bandwagon as it were. Anyone who doesn't know me, I'm epw's bro. so expect to see some purged mental muck soon to be posted @ GodIsDeadAndWeKilledHim.blogspot.com.
PS2 + beer = entertainment
Some days I'm glad my job isn't very stressful, demanding, or labor intensive. This is one of those days. Maybe someday I'll learn that it's better to get a full night's sleep before you have to go to work the next day. Maybe not.
The funny part is that I had already changed the Kikuchiyo News template before I even knew I was being called to the rescue. Well, to be honest, I read this post, changed the template, and then read the call-to-the-rescue post below. Wierd, huh?
Speaking of help with technology: I've changed the template over at Kikuchiyo News, but I'd like to make the leftmost part of the table wider. I keep fargin' it up. No chance that Ethan could come to the rescue, is there?
If you weren't keeping an eye on technology for me, I'd gain even more weight. If you haven't seen me in a while, I now weigh in at a more than healthy 230 or so. I'm gigantic. It's great. I can rest my arms on my belly fat while I type-- talk about technology!
Worthless advice. (try refreshing it a few times)
Los Angeles has become the first city to receive its own TLD. (Top Level Domain) You can register your own .la domains at www.la. I could get epw.la for only $100/year. (2 year minimum contract) I think they offer other "non-premium" domains for $50/year.
What would you guys do if I weren't here to keep an eye on the topology of the internet for you?
Laundry went well. I actually folded my clean clothes and put them away in my dresser instead of just piling them up in my closet and labelling them "the clean pile of clothes." Hooray for me. In other news, I stayed up waaay too late Wednesday night, and so I only got about 30 minutes of sleep before I had to go to work. As a consequence, I passed out almost immediately as soon as I got home. Unfortunately, going to bed at 1700 ensures you will wake up rested sometime in the wee hours of the morning (about half an hour ago in my case). Now I'm awake, rested, and bored. I'm pretty sure everyone else (in my time zone, of course) is either asleep or headed there very soon. Maybe you will see a plethora of posts from me this morning... who knows?
Good day! I drove Mikey around this afternoon to get a new driver's license and deposit his paycheck and get some food, light bulbs, cigarettes, and soda. Now I think I'll start my laundry. Laundry updates will commence shortly. :P
Last night we helped Pat move some of his furniture around because he was switching his living room and his bedroom around. We brought over the 1/2 gallon of gin and about 1/4 gallon of vodka that was left over from Dave's poker party, but drank none of it. I think we left the bottles at Pat's when we left, too. Oh well, I wasn't really planning on drinking a bunch of gin tonight anyway. My work schedule has changed a little this week, so I don't work tomorrow. I will end up working on Thursday and Friday, though. (0800-1600 and 1800-0000, respectively) I'm also really broke, so my options for going out tonight are fairly limited. I still haven't made much progress in Dune... I've been reading it for about 3 days now and I'm only on page 34. I'm not sure if this is my fault or just the wat the book is written. I find it easy to get distracted when I'm reading that book, so I'll end up reading a page or two and then putting it down for a while. Some books are hard to put down and so you get through them more quickly, but this book isn't hard to put down in the least. I think it's too early to say whether I like the book or not, though. Once I get into the characters and the story a little more, perhaps it will engross me more than it has so far. I've also been thinking about getting a haircut. I guess that's about it for now.
Plans for last night never really materialized, so I watched a bunch of Berserk instead. Today I woke up and came to work, where I am now. Also, I started reading Dune. It's going kind of slowly because I keep getting interrupted while I'm trying to read. I guess that's what I should expect when I'm reading at work. That is all.
Time and water seem to have helped with the hung-over-ness. As soon as I get out of here, I'll get some food too. Plans for tonight: unknown.
Morning is not friend... maybe even enemy. (Yes, I realize it's 2:30 in the afternoon, but it's morning to me.)
Allen is friend. Beer is friend. That's all I have to say.
Stuff happens, epw watches. Epw's friends for the past few days have been: Beer, Tequila, Dune, Hellsing, Berserk!, The Animatrix, Pat, Adam, Will, Allen, Dave, Mikey, Dank, and Mr. Shwigglesworth. Now epw works.
Ah, Sleep... One day I will master the art. Until that day, I guess I'll just keep getting tired every 24 hours or so. Lately it seems like it's closer to 30, though. My sleep schedule got all fucked up because I had to work a couple of graveyard shifts in the middle of my normal schedule. So today I'm a little sleep deprived and I have to be here until midnight. To make matters even more complicated, the owner of the company I work for is in town visiting. This means that he was just hanging around our work site watching us do our job and making me extremely nervous. I'm usually pretty chill at my job, but when you've got two of your bosses breathing down your neck, it makes it hard to relax. In any case, I've got some chicken enchiladas from Garcia's that I'm going to grub on right about now. Cya l8r.
Sleep, the final frontier. One day, I will conquer it. Or maybe not. Maybe at this stage in the game, sleep is just something that I'm not supposed to have. Keeps me quick, on the edge. Fucking movies. I've watched a shitload (metric, in case anyone was wondering) of movies today. Sometimes you just have to by into the bullshit and sink into the couch. We all have our hypocracies. Me, I have many. That's all for now, my fine feathered friends (that's not meant to exculude other groups of animals, with the exeception of marsupials. I fucking hate them). Call or write when you get there. Don't run out of gas.
Food... the mind works much better once it's fed. Mmmm... free food. I'm almost out of here. Once I leave work, I'm gonna change and then go to Adam's for food and beer, I think. It still sux0rs that I have to work at midnight, though. I'll do my best to remember to bring a book and my work clothes to Adam's so maybe I can just leave for work from Adam's. Anyway, I'm gonna step outside for a bit; I'll post later.
I've been thinking about what I said earlier regarding dealing with groups of people. I may have overstated the difficulty of dealing with them, because it really depends on what kind of a group it is. I also think I was sort of pissed at the world yesterday when I made that megapost, and when I read it now I find that I don't really agree with everything I said. It's impossible to treat everyone exactly the same, and it's silly to take to heart every complaint from every person. People are going to complain about something no matter what, so there's no reason for me to try and stop people from complaining by changing my behavior towards them. I remember falling asleep last night thinking to myself "less thinking and more doing". I'm just not sure what I should be doing.
