Amoeba of Fun
Smash Bros
Getting lost twice while driving in Houston on the 2 wedding Saturday. Once while going from the first wedding to the next and again going home.

Good times… Good times…

Well, to the best of my recollection, that’s when we got lost. I’m a little blurry on the details and on who was with me. And can anyone remind me of when I was reverse amoeba’ed? Was it at the last Java (’05)? Somehow a reverse amoeba doesn’t have quite the effect of a regular one. ;)

Consider this an e-postcard/shoutout from Portland. I’ve got some time to kill in the airport, and PDX has free wifi, which is very cool. So I’m a little bored and thought to post on the ol’ blog. Nice airport. Has a semi-modern feel. Lots of glass and steel, but I suppose that’s standard fare nowadays. Although the baggage claim totally reminds me of the ones in Amarillo. Feels a lot like it was built in the 70s/80s. But this one has a wine/sushi bar, so we’re not quite in Kansas anymore. The flight was 4.5 hours of flight time. It was a 757, they showed a movie (The Family Stone), and had radio in the armrest. More than I was expecting in a domestic flight. I’m curious if this is one of the longest flights in the continental US…

I’m off to Portland for a few days. Oregon that is. Work related. I’ll try my best to take some pics of Oregon. Being gone would have been a great time to put the Yukon in the shop, as it could use a good going over. If only I would have thought a little ahead, I might have been able to pull that off.

I’ve watched a whole lot of season 6 of West Wing today. I was just now going to watch The City of God, because it was directed by the same guy who directed The Constant Gardener. But, upon close inspection of the disc, it is broken. :( And I don’t have any other movies in my queue, which also is bad, because I’m paying for something I’m not using. There just don’t seem to be any movies left for me to stand to watch. Maybe there are, and I’m just missing them.

I’ve been craving Layne’s and/or that other place that sells awesome chicken strips… whose name escapes me at the moment… Ah, Wing ‘n’ More. I knew it started with a W, but I had West Wing on the brain. Did I mention that last Sunday was a new episode? It was good. I guess that since they know that this season will be the last, they have a lot of license to tie up several loose romantic ends, on top of all of the other ends that need to be tied up. Usually there are 22ish episodes in their regular season, but I have no idea how many they will wind up with for this season (season 7). They’re at 13 as of last Sunday, and 14 is tomorrow. I might to see an episode on tv for once.

Not much

Watched “The Constant Gardener”. Good, but sad. Cool pic. And check out worksongs. He’s had some good stuff as of late. Also I bought a receiver on-line tonight. Should get here in 6-10 days.

Ode to Adan

Posted by Thomas Sun, 05 Mar 2006 02:59:53 +0000

Yes, Adan, I think that you find out all to late that life isn’t as fair and easy as you thought it might be when you were young. It seems like life just gets harder and harder. Which it seems to me is odd, because experience should make things easier. I suppose that the world continues to make things difficult just as quickly as you learn to cope with new circumstances. Where am I going with this… I think I can identify Adan, that the pressure of keeping up the status quo of what your friends expect of you on the outside can literally crush you to death, when things on the inside change. Expectations are a bitch.

Why are we so frail, so insecure? Are we not loved by our friends and family? The need to feel securely accepted and not judged for being who we are and not not judged for thinking how we think and not judged for feeling how we feel and not poked and prodded to change. Oh, we accept you just as you are, but you need to change this one little thing; and we do this for your own good, out of love. Yeah, sure.

Or maybe that’s just me.

Feel better, bro.

Onion Horoscope for Aquarius:
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): A poorly translated Chinese proverb about respect and honor will elicit howls of laughter from you and your friends.

All too true. Best t-shirt ever.
