Yes, Ben, I should have done something. Anything would have been better than nothing. Another perhaps missed opportunity. This pit in my stomach will go away and soon enough be replaced by some other, yet to be known girl. But, honestly, who could have expected any other outcome? There inlies my greatest disappointment, that this is the expected behavoir.

Cole, I added a link to the photoblog over there —>. Hope you enjoy it. I will take any other suggestions on further tweaking of the link, if you have any.

Well, Thanksgiving went well. No missed flights going. Woke up on time and all that. Good to see the fam, and I was pleasantly surprised to have KB and Clay meet me at the airport along with the expected parents. Being in Canyon was altogether uneventful and restful, as it should be.

Getting back, however, involved snow in Canyon and Amarillo, leading to an hour delay in leaving and missing my connection by probably about 20 minutes. Which of course led to my fun with standby and the pretty girl whom I’ll never see again. (Boo hoo me. Insert world’s tiniest violin, playing blah blah blah).

I would upload a pic, but my reader isn’t being recognized by my computer, has locked it up once already (due to what I am assuming is dust in the usb ports), and to make matters worse, when I restarted, I had to reboot again to go to runlevel 1 to deal with my misconfigured resin server and manually load modules in the correct order to get my ethX devices in the proper order. I suck, I know. I will take suggestions on long term solutions to either of the aforementioned problems. So, if I get it figured out (I guess I can get the laptop out, although I doubt that I will have much more success), then you might get to see a pic, else it will happen some other time. USB SUCKS! Firewire rules.

That is all.

Little Thing

Posted by Thomas Mon, 28 Nov 2005 01:30:07 +0000

So here I am chowing down twin apple pies from McDonalds writing to you straight from A-town (Atlanta that is). Finally got back from Canyon today after fun with missed connections, et al. But that is not the reason that I stream my concious to you right before I crash so I can get up to go to work tomorrow. No, the reason that I blog to you tonight is women. Hmm, let me check that little box to make this post go into the women’s category. Ah, much better.

Ok, so most of you should have seen this one coming, especially since I am apparently have the worst luck with weather whilest trying to get back to Atlanta from the panhandle (it snowed today in the panhandle for those of you at home!). With poor weather comes lots of down time at the airport. So too much time on your hands and plenty of pretty women chilling at the airport with you makes me wonder when I will ever grow some balls? Seriously. There was this one girl in particular. While I was waiting to try to fly on standby so that I wouldn’t have to stay overnight and fly out at 1pm tomorrow, there happened to be a very pretty girl waiting in the same little area. So, she was hot and I didn’t say anything to her, and that was that. As it turned out she was flying standby to Atlanta as well, and she got to fly out on that flight and I got the opportunity to try and catch the next one. How fortuitous and crappy at the same time. Anyway, if any of you have ever yeard the song “Little Thing” by Dave Matthews, then you will know something analgous to what I’m currenty feeling. Anyhoo, I do this every once in a while and I always kick myself.

After I got on the plane that finally brought me home, I was trying to get comfortable, but I couldn’t really, because I’m too dad gummed tall. I thought to myself, “self, don’t you hate being tall?”. Which led me to the following pickup line:

Excuse me, but don’t you hate being so beautiful, because every time you’re at an airport random guys walk up to you and strike up a conversation as if they know you, when all you really want to do is to get out of this frickin’ airport… get back to your home, to your boyfriend, and to a nice, hot bubblebath.

I should take bets on who thinks that next time I fly home I could find some similarly hot girl and say that to her.

In other news I’ll post some pics to the photoblog from the past couple of days. I probably have a couple or 3 to post…

And if anyone would like to submit a 1500–2000 word essay on why I have no cojones, then feel free.

I’m sure that none of you would ever expect me to pose this question, but why are strapless wedding dresses in now?

Pulp Fiction

Posted by Thomas Sun, 06 Nov 2005 01:04:17 +0000

I watched it again for the first time tonight. I tried to watch it some time ago (during high school, I think), but for whatever reason, I couldn’t watch it all the way through. I guess since then my tastes have changed a lot, and I have a greater appreciation for these kinds of movies and Mr. Tarantino as well. Anyway, I liked it a lot. Good movie.

I broke down and put up a captcha for comments. I keep getting spam from party poker and I WANT TO RING THEIR NECKS! Get a f*cking real job and a real business model instead of trying to get a higher pagerank with links from my page to yours. WordPress uses nofollow you morons. And if you’re not trying to up your score on the search engines, then stop annoying people and stop trying to get people to stupidly stumble onto your site and give you their money.

New pics

Posted by Thomas Wed, 02 Nov 2005 00:38:07 +0000

I just posted 2 pics from the Washington trip, a pic from campus, and 2 from Java. I should have posted them a day at a time or something, but at this point I really don’t care. If anybody wants to see what I took at Java, then I can point in the right direction, especially the 06ers, except I don’t think that the pics turned out as well as I would have liked… :(
