I'm almost wary of talking about my car buying situation, because of the serious heat I get from family members that are not-so-well-off...
Suffice to say, I'm gonna wait a few more months before doing anything with that.


Not a lot of people are at work this week... I've got work to get done, but I can't do it, because people I work with arent there.
:/
I'll start doing it by myself tomorrow if I don't get a response or some help.

I don't feel well.
I'm gonna go lay down...

I'm feeling really shaky right now...
pray for me, if you pray.
My boss just sent out an e-mail to everyone on the project, saying that I will be responsible for all builds from now on...
meaning I am responsible that this program works.
a many multi-million dollar program.
all on my shoulders.
and I'm the first person to call if it breaks (even on christmas day.)

its kind of freaking me out- They are giving me the responsibility, and letting me run with the big dogs. 30 year old guys with 10 years of experience in the industry are just now getting into the position I hit within 6 weeks.
its scary... really scary...
I need to go walk for a bit.

So whats up people?
My entire house is different now...
my computer setup is in my basement, and its set up pretty well...
and my room has all new carpet, and therefore has been rearranged. And, my bathroom is completely different now.
good stuff.
Work is going well...
its nice, that I wake up at a leisure 7:30 and head into work before 9ish... then do what I want at work, as long as I get my work done solidly.
Since no one but Amy reads this,
Hi Amy, love you.
Yeah... can't wait to buy a new car.
Saw a 325XI on the road the other day... looked good... I wonder what price range I can get an used one of those in.
still leaning towards the more horsepower of a WRX though.
so... I finished all my christmas shopping...
hit level 20 in World of Warcraft a few days ago. Haven't been playing it very much. Life is taking up pretty much all of my free time (go figure).
DJ Tiesto is live friday night in downtown seattle... hes probably one of the best DJs in the world right now. Thought about going, but I don't want to go alone to one of those things. And, infected mushroom is january 15th..
My office mate keeps making calls all day long about stupid flight reservations and stuff(she doesnt have any friends, so she just chats at the people at the airline offices I think) and she never stops eating, which gets on your nerves pretty darn fast.
I wish I had something to do right now, so I could walk around with purpose and not be in my office.
I dunno how many days I will take off next week...
theres some sort of funeral thingy for my great grandmother on... wednesday? I think.. so I haveto take that off. And thursday/friday is christmas... dunno about the following week. Do normal people work that week? Should I?
hmmm.
Well enough nonsense talk for me, since no one really cares about nonsense talk.

Our country is one of the most focused countries in the world.
You don't see any other country with as much dedication, will, and effort towards themselves.
We definately take the cake.

I don't see any other country with tens of millions of people that have dead end jobs and go home to watch TV and drink beer every night.

We definately take the cake on that!
Yep, we sure do a good job of focusing on ourselves.

I think that I found something to write about: My complete lack of anything to write about.
Not much has changed with me...
I'm starting to sink in to a life of a full time job now.
along with that, there have been a few other minute changes. New 50" plasma TV w/ surround sound, new carpet in my room (so my room is completely empty besides a bed and an alarm clock), my car's bad alternator finally became enough of a nuisance that I needed to replace it, I havent bought a gift for half the people on my list, (go figure) and the usual stuff for people around christmas time.

I'm pretty impatient when it comes to wanting a new car.
I want it right now! and real bad.
I'm not even at a state where I could start looking at them to buy yet. :( If I want to maintain my half down policy, I'd be waiting into february. But I don't wanna! humph. :(

I don't even expect any christmas presents at all this year. Anything that someone could buy me is something that I would just buy myself, unless its super expensive... so it leaves everyone in a peculiar position when trying to buy for me. this has always been the case..
it makes me happy going into christmas with no expectations. Growing up with a somewhat wealthy family, its pretty hard not to expect anything specific/at all. But when those kinds of things are off your mind, you tend to enjoy christmas quite a bit more, because you focus on the reason behind it, and the friends and family.

Too bad its looking like this might be one of the worst christmases for my family(s) in a looong time.
Oh well, nothing I can do about it(without being yelled at and blamed).
Goodtimes :)
Who wants to play some Halo? :)

Wow, microsoft came out of the gate with their own blogger service/"online personal scrapbook" (as they like to call it) called "Spaces."

Check them out- they seem to beat the crap out of the competition in xanga and blogspot.
