Weekend Edition

February 2, 2008

Crap that I did this weekend:

  • Went to a book sale.
  • Exercise.
  • Brush cats.
  • Finished jigsaw puzzle.
  • Started & finished a very small jigsaw puzzle.
  • Played the video game “Bioshock.”
  • Bonus task: I also had to vacuum the upstairs hallway, bathroom & stairs as well since I was vacuuming my room.

Crap that I hope to do by the end of the weekend:

  • Watch part of “Super Bowl 42.”
  • Play more of the video game “Bioshock.” Update: Done.
  • Clip fingernails. Update: Done.
  • Vacuum room. Update: Done.
  • If its decent out, maybe do a bit of raking. Update: The ground was all soggy (melting snow) so I picked up branches instead. I had to saw a partially torn-off branch from a tree as well.
  • Fill bird feeders. Update: Done.
  • Send out a resume or two.


  • I don’t know why I go to book sales. I’m not really interested in books. I don’t have a “favorite” author or series or anything like that. I don’t care if I have a 1st edition or 2nd edition or paperback or whatever. It’s not like I don’t read but, at the same time, it’s not my passion.
  • The National Football League hates churches for some reason.
  • I hope that the New England Patriots win the Super Bowl by a score of 842-3 (yes, a complete blowout would be nice). I know that, elsewhere in the world, the Super Bowl isn’t a big deal but in the U.S., it’s a big deal.
  • “Bioshock,” after the pretty scenery, ain’t all that. In fact, it’s getting kind of boring. I’m currently in Fort Frolic. If it wasn’t for the fact that I’m cheating by giving myself free “Eve” (fancy term for a type of ‘ammunition’), I’d probably have quit the game by now. Some quick observations about the game…
    • There’s an awful lot of medical stations around for a supposedly utopian city where nothing bad was supposed to happen.
    • I hate games where enemies come out of nowhere. Can’t game designers make a game where enemies logically come from somewhere?
    • I hate games that have respawning enemies. Please stop. Just stop.
    • Taking pictures is “Research”? At least do something with the pictures: Go to a station to have them analyzed. Why not just hide in a corner & study the enemies? Wouldn’t that be the same? Why do I need a picture?

Resume update:

  • Nothing.

Mission NOT Accomplished!

  • I’ll finish the objectives later on in the weekend.

My personal challenge for Monday:

  • Go to bed at 8 PM. Yes, 8 PM.

  • Completed today’s personal challenge.
  • Brush cats.
  • Exercise.
  • Work on jigsaw puzzle.

Crap that I will do by the end of today:

  • Don’t drive a fancy car through Moscow, Russia.
  • Foul-mouthed ugly broads aren’t funny.

January 31, 2008

Crap that I did today:

  • Work.
  • Exercise.
  • Brush cats.
  • Work on jigsaw puzzle.
  • Watch taped episode of “Mythbusters.”


  • According to WordPress, practically no one reads my blog. Beat.

Resume Update:

  • Nothing yet. Beat.

Mission Averted!

  • Due to circumstances beyond my control, the mission can not be completed today. To compensate, I brushed the indoor dog earlier tonight. I’ll add the original challenge to the weekend challenge… A side challenge, if you will.

My personal challenge for tomorrow:

  • Do my banking tomorrow after work.

Letting Yourself Go…

January 29, 2008

Crap that I did today:

  • Work.
  • Exercise.
  • Brush cats.
  • Help solve new jigsaw puzzle my Dad & I are building.
  • Watch the TV show “American Idol.”
  • Watch TV coverage of the Republican Florida primary.
  • Complete yesterday’s personal challenge.


    • My prediction for tonight (the primary, not “American Idol”): Ready. Tested. Gone.
    • Celebrating a hollow victory makes you look mentally-challenged. Maybe you should actually win something of value before you make a big deal of it.
    • The TV show “American Idol” needs to be put out of it’s misery.
    • Drink after you attend a formal function, not before.

    Resume Update:

    • Nothing yet on Company “A” or “B” response.

    Mission Accomplished!

    • I remade my bed earlier today. I feel so neat & tidy.

    My personal challenge for tomorrow:

    • Do my taxes. I’ve got all my financial stuff in already.

    TGIM… Not!

    January 28, 2008

    Crap that I did today:

    • Un-installed/Re-installed “OpenOffice.”
    • Brushed cats.
    • Exercised.
    • Finished the jigsaw puzzle that my Dad & I were working on.


    • So, the word “Canadian” is the new code word for “the N-word,” eh?
    • My OpenOffice program became corrupted. So, I un-installed it & attempted to install the latest version. It took me awhile but it eventually installed.

    Mission Accomplished!

    • I sent out 2 resumes earlier today. I feel so motivated. Let’s call the resumes “A” & “B,” respectively. I’ll keep you up to date on how they progress.

    My personal challenge for tomorrow:

    • My bed sheets are getting disorganized. It’s time to completely re-make my bed.

    On a Roll…

    January 25, 2008

    Crap that I did today:

    • Didn’t kill… Well, you know the rest…
    • Put some pieces into a jigsaw puzzle that my Dad & I are building.

    Crap that I’ll Do By The End of Today:

    • Exercise.
    • Brush cats.
    • Maybe play a video game but only briefly.


    • What are the odds of a Las Vegas casino catching on fire?
    • This is the last time I mention Heath Ledger in my blog until the official cause of death is announced. My guess: He overdosed on sleeping pills. Maybe I’m right & maybe I’m not. We’ll see in a few days.

    Mission Accomplished!

    • I processed 10 envelopes earlier today. I feel so un-cluttered.

    My personal challenge for The Weekend:

    • My room is dusty. I need to spend 60 minutes dusting it.
