Been a while

So, it's been a little while since I actually sat down here and said anything about my life. So I figure, ,while I'm here on lunch, munching on my apple cinamin (sp) doughnuts I'd type a few things.

So, I've been doing the graveyard shift for the second week here. I rather like it. It does get dull, but it leaves me with plenty of time to sit here and read. I ripped about 5 gigs worth of MP3s to my box and I sit here and listen to music while I work. :)

On the other side of life, I don't get to see Heather to often. :( She works a second job right now. Makes for little time to see her. :( I don't like not seeing her very often now. Makes me feel like a part of me is missing or something.

Oh, my eyes are still fuzzy and blurry as ever. Heather is trying to talk me into going to the doctor here and get them looked at. But all he's going to say is that I need to get the outer layer of my eye shaved off, and that is not a very appealing prospect for me. I cherrish my eyesight to much to under go that....

What else has been going on as of late....my first long term girlfriend (brandy) got in touch with me lately. It was good to hear from her. Caught up on many years of not having contact. And I think I've made a friend of her husband. He and I chat while I'm at work.

On other notes...I'm going back to Chicago January 2nd (as long as my folks get the tickets for me. :) I'll be there until like the 11th or something...so you chicago folk...plan on doing things with me. *grin*

Anyway, just wanted to do a little check up with everyone. Hi!! Enough from me being long winded. Back to doughnuts. :)

Here. Some rules about guys. Enjoy.

Under no circumstances may two men share an umbrella.

It is ok for a man to cry under the following circumstances:
a. When a heroic dog dies to save it's master
b. The moment Angelina Jolie starts unbuttoning her blouse
c. After wrecking your boss' Ferrari
d. One hour, 12 minutes, 37 seconds into The Crying Game

Unless he murdered someone in your family, you must bail a friend out of jail within 12 hours.

Acceptable excuse for not helping a friend move: Your legs have been severed in a freak threshing accident.

If you've known a guy for more than 24 hours, his sister is off limits forever, unless you actually marry her.

The minimum amount of time you have to wait for a guy who's running late is 5 minutes. Maximum.

Complaining about the brand of free beer in a buddy's fridge is forbidden. Gripe at will if the temperature is unsuitable.

No man shall ever be required to buy a birthday present for another man. (in fact, even remembering your buddy's birthday is strictly optional).

When stumbling upon other guys watching a sporting event, you may always ask the score of the game in progress, but you may never ask who's playing.

It is permissible to quaff a fruity chick drink only when you're sunning on a tropical beach....and it's delivered by a topless supermodel...and it's free.

Unless you're in prison, never fight naked.
Friends don't let friends wear Speedos. Ever. Issue closed.
If a man's zipper is down, that's his problem---you didn't see nothin'.

Women who claim they "love to watch sports" must be treated as spies until they demonstrate knowledge of the game and the ability to pick a buffalo wing clean.

You must offer heartfelt and public condolences over the death of a girlfriend's cat, even if it was you who secretly set it on fire and threw it into a ceiling fan.

Never join your girlfriend or wife in dissing a buddy of yours, except if she's withholding sex pending your response.

Never talk to a man in a bathroom unless you are on equal footing: both urinating, both waiting in line, etc. For all other situations, an almost imperceptible nod is all the conversation you need.

You cannot rat out a coworker who shows up at work with a massive hangover. You may however, hide the aspirin, smear his chair with limburger cheese, turn the brightness dial all the way down so he thinks his monitor is broken, and have him paged over the loudspeaker every seven minutes.

Finally...Always split aces and eights. No arguments!

Wow, actually fairly accurate

Colorgenics Test


Utmost in your mind is success. You are constantly seeking stimulation and a life full of experience. You are trying to "grow" and above all you need to develop freely and to shake off the shackles of self-doubt. You are an enthusiastic individual ... full of life with the desire to live intensely. You like contact with others and are enthusiastic by nature. You are receptive to anything new, modern or intriguing. Your interests are many and you are likely to expand your fields of activities. You are optimistic about the future and you deserve every success because deep down you are a "winner".

You are a very warm and emotional individual but unfortunately in the past too many people have taken advantage of this sensitive trait. You need aesthetic surroundings, or an equally sensitive and understanding partner with whom to share a warm understanding.

"Compromise" is the name of the game at this time...and it is the only way by means of which you can avoid being deprived of the love and affection you so rightly deserve...so soften up a little.. be flexible.

You are trying to prove yourself .. not only to yourself.. but also to everyone around you...There is much that you would like to say and do .. but the situation warrants self-restraint .. and that is the last thing that you have on your mind..It would seem that you have an unsatisfied need to ally yourself with others whose standards are as high as your own. You want to be different - to stand out from the crowd. This is subjecting you to considerable stress but you tend to stick to your attitudes despite lack of appreciation. Of course, you are finding the situation uncomfortable and would like nothing better but to break away from it. But you don't like the idea of compromise. Your main problem is that you are unable to resolve the situation because you continually postpone making the necessary decisions ... You feel that if you make the wrong choice this would lead to such opposition that you would not be able to command the esteem of others. It is essential that those around you are prepared to comply with your wishes and respect your opinions. Only when this compliance is established, will you feel at ease and secure.

You really like doing what you do and more than that, you like yourself. Your attitude to work and to life is that "If its not fun - then don't do it" You want to be liked and respected, not for who you are but , for what you are.. and it seems to be working..

WARNING! DAY OF TESTS!!!

I'm bored so I'm taking a bunch of tests on Emode

What type of dog am I? Well, I'm a ....

Bernese Mountain Dog

No bones about it, you're a good-hearted, people-loving Bernese Mountain Dog. Down-to-earth and loyal, no one works or plays harder than you do. You put your nose to the grindstone when it really counts, but you never neglect your social calendar. Simultaneously strong and sweet, you're very tuned-in to the feelings and needs of the other dogs you run with. Without having to be asked, you always have a helping paw to lend and a sympathetic shoulder to lean on. "Communication" is your middle name, and when that's paired with your unswerving devotion, you get a breed that everyone respects and trusts. Woof!

What kind of monster am I?

Witch/Warlock

A teaspoon of moth's dust, a pinch of turtles warts, a lock of baby hair and Poof! Your monster match is a witch/warlock. You are a crafty one, always cooking up a wily plan. Whether it's reading people's palms or dealing them a full house of tarot cards, you are an excellent judge of character. Maybe you're in the kitchen, cooking up one of your homemade concoctions, or are playing bartender, mixing guests one of your special brews. Either way you seem to know the cure for what ales us all.

You may not have a long white beard or a pointy black hat, but your charm casts a spell on those around you. You and your coven will have a good time this All Hallow's Eve while you do the voodoo that you do best. But beware witches and warlocks, not everyone can appreciate your elixirs and antidotes. Be sparing with your bewitching wisdom and eventually the doubters will come aroundespecially if you let them ride shotgun on your broomstick.

This one I'm entertained by. *grin*

My celebrity match is....

Cameron Diaz

There's just something about Cameron Diaz, isn't there? You sure think so, which is why this Charlie's Angel is your celebrity dream girl. The easy-going California native is prettier than any girl next door and still twice as nice. Her unpretentious, up-for-anything attitude has appealed to you ever since she chewed up the scenery with Jim Carrey in The Mask. She may be a former international supermodel, but you can just tell she'd be up for a beer and a burger and she might even watch the game with you, too. What more could a guy want? Since you've always been a sucker for the spontaneous, easy-going "guy's girl," Cameron's fresh-faced looks, winning smile, and non-stop legs will make you feel like you've finally found "the one."

My personality test

Skydiver

You're a free-spirited, independent, action-crazed lunatic. You love movies with sex and violence, and you drive like a maniac. "Anything for a good time," is your motto, even if that means dancing half-dressed on some booze-slicked bar. But let's face it, you're so fun, interesting, and gung-ho about life that people find you irresistible no matter what you do.

You're open and extroverted, and chances are you're pretty liberal (ever thought of giving nudism a try?). Plus, you can work a crowd, baby. You're like a magnet for love and affection. People adore you. They'll cross a busy street just to get a closer look at you. And, thanks to that healthy dose of self-confidence, you're super-flexible it takes a real downer to make you blue. Your friends are probably all just like you, and we wouldn't be surprised to hear that you're all plotting to take over some Caribbean island.

You're a great leader at work. You're a self-starter and will always volunteer to take on a job if no one else is up for the task. Plus, you're an excellent communicator and tend to spread your enthusiasm to others. But routine work makes you act up and throw things, and then people don't like you so much anymore.
