Why is it so much more comfortable to share your bed with someone than to sleep alone? One would think that having two people sharing the same space would be less comfortable, but then one would be oh so very wrong. I even proved to myself last night that Jasmine could spend the night, I could get a decent night's rest, and I could still manage to pick up the Yhapster and get to work on time. Mmmm... I think comfort is habit forming.

So I have this great idea. My problem is that I never have the money to get the tattoos I want. Except for when I get my tax refund. That's money that I usually forget about having until I actually get my taxes done. So here's my plan: from now on, whenever I get a tax refund, I will be getting a tattoo done. Hooray!

So I got this email the other day from a girl I knew ages ago. My senior buddy from Woodson. From back when i was a freshman. I lost touch with her in June 1996 when she left for UCSB and I haven't heard from her since until she emailed me. Apparently she foudn and read teh interview we did with Sick Shift from fall '99. And I asked Gary if he knew her because a couple guys in thr band went to UCSB also. So through the miracle of the internet, Denise foudn me again. Wacky.

So apparently I have a "morning after" glow... Which is instersting because I didn't have sex last night, or this morning for that matter. In fact, nothing particularly sexual happened at all. Some kissing and cuddling yes, but last time I checked, that didn't induce a morning after anything... Basically I'm just really out of it right now. Cause as awesome as it was to have Jasmine in my arms all "night," we didn't get to bed until 4 am and I slept pretty restlessly. Not that I'm complaining or anything, far from it in fact. :) I'm just explaining that I'm dazed and sluggish. Maybe even lethargic. Anyway, the moral of this story is that I'm not "glowing," and that the guy at CVS (where I was purchasing Claritin and Advil, not Trojans and KY) has no clue what he was talking about.

Holy crap. The last 20 hours of my life have been so infinitely amazing. So Jasmine came over last night at like 6:30 and we've just been hanging out all night and we ended up crashing out in my bed until almost 1 pm. Mmmmm.... She is so awesome.

So have you seen that Jackass movie or Fear Dot Com? If you haven't, don't bother. You'd have more fun digging your eyes out with a spork. Unless of course you were watching them with this girl I just met. Cause I don't remember the last time I was over at a girl's house laying on her bed and staring at the ceiling just talking about whatever until 2:30 in the morning... But I'd definitely forgotten how much fun it was. :)

Who got gas today for $1.299? Me. Yes. $1.30 per gallon. You rock crazy-ass ghetto vietnamese-neighborhood BP! Also, is the best website ever. It should also be noted that they have a similar site for nearly every sizeable city in the country.

So it's definitely allergy season now. My car has a fine coating of yellow dust all over it. And yesterday the first of my symptoms kicked in. Pounding headache, itchy throat, runny nose. Hooray for allergies!! Time to go to CVS an dget me some Claritin. Fortunately, this year I won't have to go to a doctor and lie abotu hwo bad my allegies are to get a prescription. The way I see it, I woudl have had to pay for Claritin anyway, but now that it's over the counter, I'm eliminating teh step of going to a doctor and lying to him/her. First stop on the way home tonight - CVS.

Hooray for me! I beat Zelda today!! The N64 zelda that is, Ocarina of Time. Which is excellent timing since the brand new Gamecube Zelda is being shipped tomorrow and should be here on wendesday. Hooray for no gaps in my gaming agenda!!

Fuck you Bellsouth! my internet conenction has been flaky as hell the last couple weeks and we've spent hours on the phone with them and it just keeps getting worse and worse. It's at teh point where I have to reconnect every 5 minutes almost. This is nearly as bad as dialup. Terrible.

Why am I awake at 9:30 am on a Saturday?? It's not like I went to bed early. It was nearly 2 am. Work is ruining my weekends now too.. Boo!

To quote my manager Dan: "Have you ever noticed how attractive women seem to be solar powered?"

So I was talking to Caryn tonight and I realized an important and scary thing. The more money I get paid the more I hate my job. Apparently my happiness is inversely proportional to the amount of money I make and my involvment in music as this chart illustrates. I'm not sure whether to take this as a sign that I shoudl stick with music or just accept that fact that when I graduate and start making $60k a year I will be miserable.

I saw the first thong of spring today coming home from work. This girl had been out sunbathing (it was 70 degrees here today) at the pool and was walking back to her apartment without any coverup. Ahh spring... ;)

Did you know that there's a World Series for poker? I didn't either until it became enough of a "sport" to be shown on ESPN2 at 12:30 in the morning...

So I was rooting through a pile of stuff this afternoon trying to throw a bunch of stuff away and I came across my old ASP journals. Oddly enough, there's no journal entries in any of the 4 books. There is a lot of doodling, some of my original writing, a bunch of to-do lists, and some college admission info. Among the 10-15 sheets I tore out to save were these two gems that Kristin did. Enjoy!

Glad to see that Kristin loves herself... Or at least wants other people to know that I love her in spite of my girly hadwriting.

Kristin thinks chickens do it doggie style...

Also, why is RATM's Evil Empire such a damn good record?

Long overdue and posted entirely without permission. Jordan, please don't sue me ;)
Strung Out
I hurt myself again today.
Feelin' a little numb I could use the pain.
I always find myself in this little bind.
It's been a few weeks since you've been around.
So here I sit with my hands strapped down,
Patiently awaiting our secret games we used to play all alone.
So here I sit all tied up,
All alone with all my thoughts.
I do not mind if this goes on.
I think about what I'll say to you
When you finally decide to come my way.
I'm sitting around all painted like a fool.
And I don't know how I got this way,
And I don't know how much more I wanna take.
But I know you'll shoot me down,
and bury me before I get too high.
So here I sit all tied up,
All alone with all my thoughts.
When will I learn to walk away
From the things I do that make me feel
The way I feel when I'm with you?
Tonight it's me, myself and I,
All this pain I seem to put myself through,
All the ways I find to submit to you.
Cat o' nine tails gettin' old.
And I don't know how I got this way,
And I don't know how much more I wanna take.
I got a millon ways to tame myself and a million nights to try.
When will you come around to do the things you do to me?
I hate this game of solitaire.

New sheets rock so hard. Mmmm, so clean and soft. Colors still so bold. Yay for new sheets!

Damnation... First ROb comes home last night and ruins my evening and then Jonathon comes home thsi afternoon and ruins teh rest of my weekend. These idiots weren't supposed to be home until tomorrow night... And what's the first thing Jonathon says to me as he walks in the door? "Next time you go to the auto store, pick up some body paint cause I hit your car on the way in." What a moron. Is it May yet? How much longer do I have to wait before I never have to see these guys again? Dammit.

here's to going to bed at midnight on a friday night. blah.

Where's my copy of Suburban Teenage Wasteland Blues when I need it? I want to post the lyrics to Solitaire and I can't remember them all off the top of my head. That just means I need to listen to Strung Out more often I suppose...

XchaosdawningX (12:43:40 AM): hi

okay, i definitely get the hint now. although this is really one of those times when it would be more polite to just say "fuck off, i'm not interested in you anymore" rather than ignoring me. *sigh* :(

ow ow ow!! why does putting a big object through a small hole in your body have to hurt so much? i think i've reached the point at which I'm going to have to start using tapers to get bigger jewelry in my ears, cause i'll be damned if i'm going to try pushing a 6g plug through a 10g hole again...

Adam's Lesson of the (yester)Day:
How Not to Impress Your Clients in 5 Easy Steps:
1 - Hold a Formal Design Review 3 months after it's scheduled date.
2 - Agree to provide lunch for everyone, when 12:30 rolls around, "forget" that you agreed to provide lunch and run out to Publix for bread and a cold cut platter.
3 - Invite 25 people to your design review, which is to be held in a conference room intended for 10 people.
4 - Schedule your meeting run from 11 to 5 and at 4:30 be only 2/3 of the way through your presentations.
5 - Have everyone giving a presentation bring in their material in a different format and on a different computer.
If you follow these 5 simple steps you can guarantee not only to not finish your project on time but also to not get your $200,000 bonus.

XchaosdawningX (1:04:46 AM): hey hey
skyejax99 (1:04:55 AM): hey
XchaosdawningX (1:05:18 AM): what have you been up to?
skyejax99 (1:06:21 AM): nothin you
XchaosdawningX (1:06:52 AM): just enjoying 2 of my idiot roommates being out of town all week for spring break
XchaosdawningX (1:13:00 AM): anyway, i gotta get to bed, you wanna hook up this weekend sometime?
skyejax99 signed off at 1:17:09 AM.

um, ouch?

Here's to taking my lunch break at home, just like people used to back when life was simpler. Now if only I had a wife and kids to look forward to seeing... Oh well.

So I defintiely watched 5 hours of TV today. god that's sad. I won't even try to justify it as educational despite the fact that 3 of those hours were on Discovery. And while I suppose I coudl make a case for me learning things from Monster Garage, mostly I watch that show for entertainment. So an hour of teh Simpsons, Raymond, 3 hours fo Monster Garage, and Futurama sure do make up 5 hours of TV. I need to start running in the evenings or something so I don't watch so much damned brain rotting nonsense. Yeah, like that'll happen...

I've decided that after I graduate I'm moving to Finland to start a metal band. I know that sounds silly, but here's the deal: Children of Bodom is the most rockin' metal band I've heard since I first heard Metallica. And they've got 3 amazing albums under their belts. Sonata Arctica blows me away every time I listen to them and their new album is going to be on my playlist right beside Children's of Bodom's new Hate Crew Deathroll record logn into the forseeable future. Then add to that Nightwish. 3 of the best metal bands I've heard in a long ass time, and yes, that's taking Darkest Hour and Age of Ruin into account. And they're all from Finland. I am so moving there. And if my metal band doesn't work out, I'll just marry some hot scandanavian model and live off her swimsuit-ad money.

WOOHOO!!!! Jesus and Jackass are gone until next Sunday!! Thank god for spring break! Jonathon went to Boston and Rob's in Texas. *shudder* Fucking Texas...

Georgia Tech Athletics: Excelling at Mediocrity.

How can driving during the day be so stressful and driving at night be so relaxing? Something about the cool night air and my new Spitvalves record blaring just lets my mind wander. I mean, obviously I'm paying attention to the road and all, but I'm not thinking about what I'm doing, you know? Like, how when you first learn to drive stick you have to focus on what you're doing every time you have to shift and after a while it just becomes second nature. (Then you get in an automatic and you have to force yoruself to focus on not trying to shift.) But yeah, it's like that where you don't really need to pay attention to driving, only to where you're going, and when where you're going is nowhere in particular and there's no other cars around, you only need to be careful enough not to run into a fence or blow through a stop light. Your brain can handle that stuff on its own, it's instinct. So while that small part of your brain is making sure you keep breathing and operating your automobile, the rest of your mind can just coast. It's so nice to just be cruising up Peachtree Industrial or Atlanta Rd while your brain is off on a completely separate adventure. I feel so much better now than I have in weeks. God bless driving.
