  • the fist word of the beastie boy album "hello nasty" is "well" the last is "death"...interesting observation by me, myself, and i.
  • i've been listening to that album more lately. it's good. very good.
  • did nothing today. i hope i work 50 hours every week for the rest of the summer. except whittle time when i work 24 hrs a day.
  • that's all.

  • lots of work this week. 14 on sunday, 9.5 on tuesday, 5.5 on wednesday, 8 on thursday, 14.5 on friday, and 5.5 today (sat.)
  • that amounts to money for a new CD-R if i wanted, but i don't think i'll do that. i have a new system...cash my checks and get all cash, except $ for rent, phone and utils. everything else cash and put money at the beg. of the month in a bottle for savings, new cd player, etc. and then some for food....it'll make me manage my money better since it's cash and not just a check or a number in my checkbook.
  • got a ride from tristan to work today, only to learn that all the clients were at the pool, in davis. so the staff left at the shelter packed up to relieve those staff already at the pool and we went back to davis. after work i needed to get home somehow...the bus was supposed to leave around 10:45pm from the mall, only problem was getting to the mall in woodland from the shelter. it's 5 miles away and i got off work at 10 so i couldn't exactly walk. i got a ride and got on the bus that was there waiting, my ride left. the bus driver asked where i was going i said davis he said this bus doesn't go to davis and then said he didn't think that there were anymore buses coming. i started thinking about the 16 mile walk home...i would have rather walked than gotten a ride. the bus driver called up for me and asked if there was another bus coming. as he was on the phone the bus pulled up, i got on and went to davis. that was the first time that the bus worked for me...good thing too.
  • i walked home 1 mile from the bus stop because i thought i was going to pick up my bike from a friend's house, but i didn't have my keys so i couldn't unlock the bike from outside her place. oh well.
  • sold my cd writer, money isn't in pocket yet though.
  • when roommates leave beer in the refrigerator it's a wise idea to dump out the liquid, clean the inside with water and moutwash and then use the bottle as a piggy bank...i've got four piggy banks and have prevented people from being idiots.
  • i have lots of mp3s.
  • led zeppelin is a good, strike that, great band. rolling stones are a good band, but overrated cuz they are old. same with aerosmith, but more so. aerosmith and the rolling stones are still good though, don't get me wrong.
  • rick rubin is perhaps the greatest producer in music, ever.

  • spent 14 hours at work...shift was 10 hours. bus on sunday sucks or is non-existent.
  • Dingel (sp.?) amendment passed...fuck idiots...all 218 of them, vs. the 211 smart representatives. i saw the debates on c-span and the dumb people (NRA paid no doubt) kept saying that the amendment would protect the rights of the people...bullshit...it adds more loopholes than something with a lot of loopholes and makes the waiting period almost obsolete. the issue is not whether people can buy guns or not, it's just how long they need to wait and if 'law abiding citizens' (as the NRA reps kept refering to hunters and NRA members as) can't wait up to 6 days to make sure felons get guns then they should suck a brick or something really bad.
  • the highlight of the debates, from what i saw, was when a black democratic representative (i think he was actually from TX, but that doesn't sound right based upon what he said) went off on how stupid the amendment was (is) and despite the gavel being pounded, signally his time being up, he kept going on about how the Dingbat amendment was a giant loophole and wasn't going to harm law abiding citizens, but make sure that felons didn't get weapons - plain and simple. i was quite exciting, cheering for him and the like...it was the most exciting political moment of my career in politics.

  • girls don't have to be girlfriends - a good lesson.
  • since my b-day is approaching i think it wise to post a wish list of sorts.
  • today, technically, i have 10 hours of work...that was a short break.

  • 6-18-99

  • finals are done.
  • a movie need not be entertaining to be great. Jungle Fever is a great film. sadly though some laugh to avoid feeling uncomfortable, or say the ending is weird just because they don't understand it.
  • i'm selling my cd writer. fuck it.
  • show will be every other thursday 2:30-4:30pm for the summer
  • finals could have been worse...could have been better. we'll see.
  • girls interest me.
  • wouldn't life be easier if we were all just honest? i tried it...it works. you should try it sometime.
  • i forgot, how many times do you live again?

  • out of about 60 hours i slept a total of 4 and consumed 4 liters of mountain dew, wrote a total of 21 pages, read many more, took one take home quiz and went to 5 hours of classes. the papers are done and i slept 13 hours last night. i got high off the mountain dew it was weird.
  • i'll start updating a lot more often once finals are over.
  • not much great has happened....
  • oh girls are confusing so if you are one...just don't be impossible.
  • i revamped my mp3 lists...text version, winamp generated version, word 7.0 version, and made it less broken...every update before May 99 is now integrated into the main list...makes it easier to find stuff for those that can't use the find command. i left the deletions list just because...and those are seperated by date still...not sure if i'll keep it like that. i also have a beastie boys only list (includes adrock's solo BS 2000 project)...150 something there and a list containing every mp3 on my hard drive, except those in the download directory...both these lists are in the winamp generated format. updated the mp3/cd wish list too.
  • also check out the domains list...people from weird domains are visiting my site.
  • also updated the cd list a bit. only a few additions, but it's completely current.
  • added two papers to the papers list.

  • 6-2-99

  • updated mp3 list and cd list.
  • i think my cd writer is officially dead...i'm gonna sell it on ebay pretty soon...because i'm pretty sure it's my computer not liking it...unless i can find HP gold on gold cds...those seem to be the only ones that work. so if you can find gold on gold cds made by hp tell me please!
  • i have between 19 and 24 pages due by the 10th...i have done about 3 pages worth so far. shit.
  • have work tomorrow.
  • went running today.
