That was not much of a football game, but then again I was mainly watching for the Stones, who were awesome.
I got to work really early today. I thought I should probably nurse my headache a little before I commit to anything.
Also, it's VERY FUCKING COLD today. Current Mood: cold

I'm starting to realize that there is a big difference between people who use Livejournal and Friendster and things like this than the rest of the planet. I never really got much into this and I don't understand the culture and the rules. It's like society has different rules for behavior for people who spend all day on Livejournal and the rest of us, and the rules that hardcore Livejournallers play by aren't the rules of the world I live in.
I friended a bunch of people when I started because I thought they were interesting, but I guess it's like internet dating. I don't talk to the two people I knew who had journals anymore, and the rest of the people aren't friends. (You don't count, Lacey. I don't know how you do it.) About half of them I still read. The others I got tired of reading because I didn't understand their world and I guess I don't know how to "meet" people online.
I still look at some of the journals I took off the friends list from time to time and what I've learned is that people are psychopaths, basically. Tonight I read this one girl here in Georgia go completely insane over two guys she says are harassing her. I was thinking she was pretty cool when I was still home and reading her for a while but I was dead wrong.
Psycho, man. The Internet makes you a fucking retard.

I set a little money aside to go see the Thrashers blow it last night. There weren't a lot of people there and the team defense stunk.
What really stunk is the subway in this town. I mean, I knew it was going to smell bad, but this was my first time on the subway and it's just embarassing. What a waste of tax dollars. It was a lot cheaper than parking though.
Phillips Arena does a good job with the game, but there wasn't a real big crowd, and the play was anemic and it took me forever to get back to Lindbergh Center, so that wasn't a very good use of my time.
Oh well, back to work.

I think I said goodbye to Jessica tonight for the last time.
She called my aunt from Houston and we got in touch. She's started over. She just started seeing this guy.
She just wanted to let me know she's still alive and she's sorry.
I said when they finish rebuilding Biloxi, we should meet there for lunch, or dinner in the ruins.
She said that would be nice, maybe one day.
But she said she was sorry.
I'm not going to call her back.
I don't think I'll ever see her again. Current Mood: drunk

In other news,
I found a job paying $27,500 a year, so goodbye Barnes & Noble and all the pretend intellectuals who waste my time there before digging through the bargain books. And we found a place! Awesome. We move in a week. Current Mood: annoyed

The Mississippi Sea Wolves have announced that they will be selling "Hurrican Katrina Survivor" t-shirts to raise money to help rebuild and restore the team. Flood waters destroyed the inside of the Mississippi Coast Coliseum, taking out the Sea Wolves' front office as well as the locker rooms, ice making equipment, and two zambonis.
The shirts are available in sizes M-XXL and are $25 ($20 plus $5 shipping) for orders within the United States. Canadian orders are $30 ($20 plus $10 shipping). The Sea Wolves request that all orders must be paid in U.S. funds. Orders and payment can be sent to:
Mississippi Sea Wolves
Hurricane Survivor T-Shirts

And there was much rejoicing, hooray, because I'm finally a fan of one team in town. We went to see the Thrashers last night beat the hell out of the Pittsburgh Penguins. This team is fucking AWESOME.
I've always loved hockey. I used to be a big fan of the Brass, but they had to close when New Orleans finally got a basketball team, so I started going to Biloxi to see the Sea Wolves. They'll be back next season, but I really don't care what happens in the ECHL without them.
Money's very tight but I start working at Barnes & Noble on Monday and I'm going out for two interviews for better paying jobs tomorrow, and we hope to get our own apartment in January, so we won't be such a burden on our hosts for much longer.

Romance is most important in a boyfriend/girlfriend. You need romance in your life. You love the extra dimension that romance brings to a relationship and you tend to fall in love very quickly.

|Music for the Masses
You know, for an aging synth-pop band from the UK, Depeche Mode puts on a decent show.
Cousin Lacey wound up with an extra ticket when her friend wrecked his car and found himself in the hospital. Lacking any social life of my own and still trying to find my way around this odd city I agreed to go. I figured at the very least I would have something I could make fun of later. I was aware of them in middle school and high school but by then I think the band had already peaked and was sliding down the other side, no doubt due to its' lead singer's rather notorious chemical habits. It was pretty easy to tell which of the songs they played were earlier tunes verses the later stuff. I much prefer the earlier stuff. I made Lacey promise to burn me a copy of the cd Some Great Reward
which seemed to have quite a few good tunes on it.
I checked in to transfering to Georgia State next semester. Carol and Eric are agreeable to letting me live here for a while. While I certainly appreciate it I won't feel right until I am on my own again. Jeff is still on the fence though. He talked about going back to Portland. I don't think he quite has a hold on what happened still. It's odd, the whole thing is odd.
More later. Current Mood: impressed

I think everyone from back home's had a lot more on their mind to deal with than minor league sports, but I had to say I'm real sorry both the Voodoo and the Sea Wolves have cancelled their next seasons. I'm thinking maybe about starting over here, transferring to GSU maybe, and catching some Sea Wolves games - even in the Gladiators home stadium - would have been real nice. Now I see the Voodoo's gone too? Shit.
It's real weird being here and cheering for my Astros against the Braves last Sunday and now cheering for my Saints against the Falcons this week. I'm not being a very good guest. Current Mood: sad
|Sunday, October 9th, 2005|
Jeff and I are the only people in this city rooting for Houston. It's the 15th inning now, and if we win, I think we're going to get thrown out on the street. Eric and Carol REALLY like the Braves. Current Mood: energetic

God it doesn't seem like a month has passed. Life has been so hectic I've barely had time to think about it. Aunt Carol and Uncle Eric have been fantastic. I have to remember to thank them properly for making this as easy as possible on us and being so hospitable to Jeff. They have a decent sized house so our presence here has not displaced anyone. They set Jeff and me up in the bonus room over the garage for now. We are talking about driving back down to New Orleans as soon as they open the city back up to see what we can salvage from the apartment. Rumor has it we'll be able to go back after the first of October. Since we were on the ground floor our place was probably underwater for weeks. I don't expect we'll find much but we gotta try. Once we get back we can decide what to do.
Still worried about Jessica. No one seems to know where she went or if she even left New Orleans at all. Current Mood: worried
|Saturday, September 10th, 2005|
Boy this has been a hell of a month. I'm tired and there is a lot to report. We are okay but I haven't been able to track down Jessica at all. I ran into Jeff downtown before we were told to get out immediately. He said Les left with his family before the storm. We don't know where they ended up. I am in Atlanta now with my Aunt Carol and my cousin Lacey. Jeff came with us since his folks are way out in Portland. Looks like we'll be here for a while. When I said back in May that I wanted something to happen this is not what I had in mind.

ok. Seems my last many posts have been... not happy? Hmmm... well... we will see about this one. I hope to be happy.
I'm sick, so we're not off to a good start.
I've been reading less for myself since starting work. However, i did start on Boy in the Water by SD.
Listening to Billy Joel, Glass Houses, can make a chore, like getting the property looking better... a lot of fun, I mean, a LOT of fun. Billy joel is fun music. So is Dashboard. Starting to really like them. Current Mood: calm

Oh, my head. We got beat, pounded, and beat and beat and beat. Drove all the hell out there to Houston and I was ready to go in the third, when is about when the Cards bent us over. Man, I feel for Rodriguez. They're not going to let him pitch anywhere outside a batting cage if he has any more days that bad. Current Mood: embarrassed
|Sunday, May 29th, 2005|
I feel like I'm wasting my time, and I am in a slump. Something needs to happen, to jumpstart my life, but what? I hope the answers come to me. I gotta do something before i feel too old to do it.
On a diffrent subject, when is it that you stop listening to yourself and start acting like you have the purfect answer to a sensitive subject? You become so fixated with something that it takes over your life and your mind. Determination can overcome adversity, but when does it bow to it? Does determination become blind pride or childish thinking? People step on others toes carelessly, morons are empowered, a calm, almost steady chaos is unraveling before my eyes. "Stepping into life means stepping into a war."
Also, Dr. Lenburg needs to get back with me about fall. This entry has been brought to you by the letters I have not received in the which are supposed to tell me about fall. Current Mood: worried

Absolutely ridiculous. Absolutely blatant.
Bush recommends the closing of more than 30 major military installments today.
Vehicle repair facilities.
Transport and shipping hubs.
So who the hell is going to take on the responsibility of doing all these very necessary tasks for the military? Who are the lucky sons of bitches who are lined up for billions and billions in government contracts to outsource this production gap created by the oval office?
