The power blinked off last night and killed about a dozen PCs. Made a ton of 17 x 11 packets for my boss. Had a meeting about the small claims letter mail merge database thingy. had a chicken salad for lunch. no practice. ordered a pizza. Penni took a bunch of old people to the zoo, she is wiped out and napping.

Black Sabbath verse Penni.

Penni dreamed that the Sysadmin and I were going to magically burn down our townhouse with satanic powers. She dreamed that i told her to leave her Dog and all her clothes behind. Wow. This may be caused by a Black Sabbath documentary we saw yesterday. Yup the song "Black Sabbath" off their first album is that intense.

"We will run straight to the murder" <3

Went to Izzy's for breakfast. Fed Chuck's cats and went grocery shopping. emailed a CPCC programming teacher about microsoft IDEs in the online C++ class. he probabily will not write back. watched Naruto. then took a long work with penni.

Bought the previous Norma Jean album , "O God The After Math" online. The new newest CD "The Redeemer" was 10 times better. I liked the band before I knew they were Christian. If i knew that before i probably would not like them. the lyric are not all gay and bible thumping. the singer has that scared-hurt-hardcore scream like Rollins not a pissed-off-tuff-guy scream like that retard from Pantera. oh well. I like a Christian band, wonder never cease.

posted this bug for file roller:

Go team.

roadside food stands


Chuck, Anna and i drove around the airport area after lunch laughing at all the ghetto stores and roadside food stands.


Scott got a jaguar for a low A tuning. He is really stepping up for this two man project. This experiment may last long than i thought.

"Hey sweet-heart, ummm, why did i say that"...

She came in and said hello to everyone. picked up light bulbs and cookies on the way home. went to practice and worked on tweaking playing the song while scott plays and triggers samples at the same time. we added some new changes to songs, The band is slowly becoming MorningFace. :)

The other part of that week...


Slept late. The Salvation Army came by to pick up Penni's old giant wooden entertainment center. Penni was gone all day with her parents. Picked up part of a mother's day gift.'d the new filter CD Iso far it's not great). Went to chuck's. Played with chuck's remote control bat thing. We talked and ate sushi. He is serious about moving to Japan. He is having an Ebay-athon, donated some board games to penni's old folks and a 2x12 mini bass cabinet to Rita's gift. Chuck is awesome. I returned home to watch Naruto and take the dog out. there was a weird chick standing in this dark shelter by my parking lot. I tried to call penni to warn her about her, but Penni would not pick up her phone, i was pretty worried.


worked. Explained the claim balancing process to some outside facility billers with my boss, they seemed pumped about printing report to the open source PDFcreator and then running a monarch model on them. I picked a new door badge at CMC. i bought qboda for Penni. i watched death note, shin chan and the squidbillies, i worked on Penni's dad's laptop and crashed early


Practice Penni called and asked me to come home because there was a tornado warning, (It's good idea to drive around during a tornado warning???) finished Scott's Pedal board.


Got a yearly evaluation, it was OK. My boss wants me to do something with bostonworkstation application. I need to request another PC for the Run Time version so i won't tie up the server with development stuff. Talk with our Billing sysadmin about setting up a sql server database to write a small claims letter/mail merge checklist application to. Worked all night assembling Scott's pedal board during practice.

Motivational Poster

From Dinner...

"So, do you remember So and So? You used to go to church with him, his wife died in that terrible car accident... Well, he had a stoke about a 3 weeks ago and now he can't move the left side of his body. His mind seems OK but the weird thing is, the type of stroke he had causes him to cry all the time. We will be talking about the church or his old job, and he will start tearing up and quietly weep. He is terribly embarrassed about it."

"So.... Do you play any sports? you look athletic", asks the elderly man.


I woke up and watched Sweeney Todd, it was pretty dark, with lots of murder, fake ninja sword throat blood and lots of singing. it was OK, Penni loved it. went with Penni to a chiropractor visit, the doctor is a drummer and we talked for a while. We returned and watched death note, squid billies and shin chan and assy mcgee, we then went to dinner at a mexican restaurant with Penni's family and some out of town realitives. we returned and watched naruto, wow, in review, today i was a freakin' lazy slob.


Took a long lunch to use flextime covering the sysadmin chair. Picked up a few comic books. The guy who wrote "SCUD" is back in action. SWEET!!! Penni and I went to the Circa Survive show with Neil, Chuck and Anna. it was OK, I pictured the circa drum using more cymbal but he had the standard 2 crash setup. The singer used a funny fake eyeball in his stage wrap. we all went to Skyland and laughed a lot. we got home at 2am.
