Breathless Anticipation

January 23, 2003

Looking down one side of Minneapolis City Hall

As you may know, I am something of a perfectionist. To be more precise, a perpetually failing perfectionist. i.e. My house is a mess, but my CDs & DVDs are all in alphabetical order on the shelf. If I can’t do something and have it all work out perfectly, I have trouble doing it at all.

So, as far as web design is concerned…I’m a real hands on, no fancy WYSIWYG editor, gimme Wordpad and I’m set kinda web designer. I actually enjoy this extended aggrevation…and I have been tinkering quite a bit here lately. Now, I think this is a good thing, but it has slowed down my intended update schedule. And, I don’t know how soon that will improve. I have a lot of things still kicking around inside my brain.

BTW, what do you think of my new layout? I’m not sure how plentiful the links are going to be (I suppose that would also depend on how often I update…) but I promise to keep you a’clickin’…..

Monday the 13th!!!

January 13, 2003

Minneapolis City Hall

I’ll bet there were much less publicized killings at some remote summer camp on Monday the 13th too…but, you know, same-old-same-old….

So! Notice anything different? Yes! I did get a hair cut! Does it look ok? I was a little concerned about the length…..

Part of me now wants to see if I can fill an entire entry without finishing a single thought….Oh, allright. Take off your shoes and set a spell. Just let it all sink in. This revamp has been in the works for like a week now! I’m working a contract for the city of Minneapolis as a HelpDesk Representative, and I just can’t tell you how much fun I’m having. Because if I did, I’d have to kill you. However, that is part of the reason this update has been taking me so long! I can’t load ANY software on my computer at work. So I can’t do any image editing….ARGH!

Well, that’s not important right now. Please note the links on the right hand side of the page. Not all of these will be here for each entry, and there are some you haven’t seen yet. Right now I filled up as much as I could. I would like to point out that the Literature link will have my own works in them. At least, that is the plan. I also hope to have some kind of picture to go with each entry. The inspiration for this addition to my ramblings is I intend to infuse things here with more of my artistic endaeavors, partly to keep myself active, and partly to justify making complete strangers listen to my incessant babbling.






Vodka Promises

January 3, 2003

I was watching Craiggers the other night, and he said that he doesn’t make Resolutions…he prefers…vodka promises. One of these was, of course, to drink more vodka. And I have to say that I admire the ability he has to set attainable goals.

Speaking-of-which, (Travis should appreciate that…) I hope that those of you tuning in will appreciate that things do change around here, and usually for the better. Maybe not as fast as lightning, (and certainly NOT like lightning…with smaller lightnings moving alongside of it….going much faster….) but improvements, like….<drumroll>…the backBlog!!! You know, where after each post I make you can add snide little comments about how I blog like a girl…or something…(flaming was never one of my strong suits…)

OK, so maybe you aren’t as excited about it as I per se, HOWEVER…it will be cool…all the kids are doing it these days….

Is This Thing On?

December 13, 2002

OK, well, don’t I just suck. I mean, it’s been over a month now….and even though the elections sorta kicked me in the groin I don’t think that really excuses the lack of content here. I was at a party at my parents house and ran into Travis. We of course spoke of our lives & the corresponding web pages that attempt to document them. So, mainly in fear that he would post a link to me and my last update would be over a month old……

There is actually a whole boat-load of stuff going on today. First of all, this is 3 years to the day that I bought Dante. Dante is my 1999 Toyota RAV4 named after an infamous Clerk. Amanda & I are going to make the trek up to Duluth today, so as to make with the skiing at Spirit Mountain.

Speaking of trekking, (the sad thing is I really do these things unintentionally…) Today is also the opening day for Star Trek: Nemesis. Which, in addition to being an even numbered film, also appears to rock if the articles I read in TV Guide (which had in my opinion multiple spoilers…) are to be believed.

And, like Fox, I want to believe.

Rock The Vote

November 5, 2002

Well, I hope you have all excercised your rights as citizens of the United States of America and gone to your local polling place and cast your ballot for the representatives who will guide this country into the next few years of its existence. Phew! Wasn’t that an unneccesarily longwinded sentence……

So, I am going to make a concerted effort not to get as “deep” as I’ve been over the last couple of weeks. It’s kinda been a tough time. Now, I just have to sit back and try not to stress out worrying about the damn election. There has been talk of making Election Day a national holiday…which I guess I support…except what I really need to be a holiday is the day AFTER the elections to be a holiday so I can recoup from staying up all night watching returns….

BTW, I don’t think I’ve mentioned that my assignment at ADC is coming to an end. This is not a bad thing per se, however, it does throw a dash of uncertainty into the mix of my life that I don’t think I need at this point. Regardless, I’m sure it will be for the best in the long run. It does mean I may get to work someplace new and shiny…(or maybe old and shiny….or maybe new and dull…ick)
