Chuck in RollerBlades, Penni in Statesville, and Progress in Blender

Sunday Night, worked too late on blender animation. i finally have a funky little gray gumby looking waving guy. tried syncing my ipod with banshee but i was afraid it was going to copy all my song to the local PC, (i need to read up on that :/ ) i chickened out and used Amarok instead.

Saturday evening i hung out with chuck and anna. Chuck bought some Rollerblades and we skated in the church parking lot across the street from his house. Chuck fell only once, but as soon as he fell a girl and her huge dog came over to small talk and blocked chuck from getting up. Chuck hates big dogs. it was awkward and very very funny. Later we ate at cheese cake factory with finish around midnight. I left my phone at chuck's house and my sweet little Penni-pooh was worried. I burned a copy of Mister Bungle's California Album for Penni, what a great great CD...

the next day I we woke up early with drove to statesville for church, Penni said it was a lot different that the baptist stuff she went to as a kid. I couldn't remember anyone's names at church, it was embarrassing. Penni was great through the whole ordeal After church we went to the famous Captains Galley's seafood restaurant, Penni is used to Charlotte's super tasty seafood restaurants and was polite but wasn't thrilled with the food. she napped on the way back and then we both passed out on the couch.

we woke up and went on a short walk with the puppy. I weighted in at 208 today. damn it.

Bad with names forever!

Monday, I have to show the new support analyst around the building so I made a "study sheet" of department, managers and supervisors so I won't look foolish Monday. I bought a nice fan at lunch to stick under my desk. I've been working on the Web Portal Project a lot today. I can't wait to go out tonight with penni

bad food decisions

Reminder: buy a little book on Chess Openings for Penni. If she read it and i didn't, she would be unstoppable. Yesterday's cashew meltdown has destroyed my stomach. Why do i do this? 40 percent of the pain in my life is caused by bad food decisions. I am truely a fool.

In my head today: Thuggin' love from the boondocks. California is cool to the homeless from south park. Yesterday there was a dixie chics song in there ... Pure torture.

foldingathome, power failed at work, Penni got her hair cut shorter, knoppix saved my bosses ass. charity gig coming up

This weekend i installed folding@home. it is an awesome project. "Use spare CPU to run alculations to ID proteins that cause diseases" Brilliant! Penni was impressed and Blogged on her myspace page about it. practiced drums upstairs. installed Fluxbuntu as Penni's mom's old Lappy and installed Blender. it's the upstairs bathroom PC \m/ ^_^

Yesterday, the power failed in the building! (wheee!)

  • went home at 1:15pm,
  • showered,
  • DLed linux action show Podcast ,(they played my audio question)
  • went to comic book store
  • had a large white chocolate mocha with an extra expresso shot, skim no whip. ans 2 cookie and while reading comic books about Chutulu.
  • came home,
  • took Logan for a long walk
  • practiced drums upstairs

Penni got her hair cut shorter. she looks great. <3

My boss asked me to come in an hour early to get the building back on it;s feet after the power loss. this is gonna hurt....

today, Work was Hell. as soon as i got there an hour early it was non-stop. i probably reconfig-ed 20 dead printers. called in 7 dead PCs. and Then the E&Y auditor just Show UP! nothing was ready the legal dept hadn't every cleaned their Xmas tack out of one office. The user;s system access is just not there... my boss is mad, my boss's boss is mad.. pure chaos (wheeeeeeeeeeeee) my bosses PC has a corrupt ntfs file system i used a knoppix CD and copied his desktop folder to his usb drive. Before he joked about the 3 people holding hands on the ubuntu logo being "their whole user base", now that a linux LiveCD saved his ass, he will take open source OSes seriously!

Practice was tonight went better, we have a charity gig coming up 5.6.07 at the milestone!! we are going to just 4 songs. i will practice all week to 2 weeks.

Rainy Cold Gray April Day / Penni's BFF married / Lupie's / Hell for Drummers

Rainy Cold Gray April Day. i love it. Good coffee. listened to tom waits in the car for Lunch everything was perfect.

Started the torrent for Debian 4.0 i386 disk on the Linux SlowBox upstarts, it flew. hundred of people where running it. go team! :)

Penni's BFF Tommi got married at the courthouse tonight. We had 4 hours notice. it was awkward but very very sweet. Penni cried. Then we ate too many nachos at Lupie's.

I reviewing the Linux Lappy recording of the yesterdays practice. I am the speed up king :( i belong in hell, hell for drummers... It seem like when i play time changed speeds. Like for a solider in a fire fight, 1 hour seems like 10 minutes because of adrenaline. It sound like crap on tape. Hell for drummers. Front row.

Sad and tired :(

Added report to portal project. No water at practice tonight. : ( bummed out tonight. I should play better, as long as i've been drumming.

    LaPaz, Overdriven practice recordings, and libphoto hell.

    Ate lunch at LaPaz with Niki, Reid, Essex and Kursty. Worked on OSRs for network access for outside auditors. There's something that i would not picture myself doing at work a few years ago. But digging digital ditches pays the bills.

    Took a nap up stairs with Penni, woke up a 8pm. sat up the electronic drums for for practice tomorrow with the few stands i pieced together. when went out with her friend Tommi and took pictures (see Linux libphoto hell below)

    I mapped out some parts to the new Fran Hammerssongs. the recording are ridiculously overdriven but very charming. I midi-ed out the weird little roll on "Your so vague" with Linux hydrogen. Tomorrow i am going to play it a thousand times while pressing lit cigarettes into my neck. Rock and Roll.

    I had a pot of coffee for dinner (3am now)

    An upgrade broken ubuntu's camera USB auto-detect thingy. (Perhaps i need to stop adding ever repository i can find?) I googled it forever and finally read i needed to downgrade the libphoto version, so i googled downgrading with synaptic and added to a little post on about it to help some poor sob in the future may have it easier. Go Team.
