I'm Proud to be an American
There's nothing that makes me feel more patriotic then voting in this great country. Indeed, I felt like my head was in the clouds after voting yesterday. And to top it off, ehowton
sent me this
video to watch. I can honestly say thatI'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died
And gave that right to me
I still haven't come to terms with going and defending the country yet. Maybe I should just get my shit together and go join up.Workin' in a Coal Mine, Goin' down down down...
Yesterday was a slow day overall at work. I had a recent tiff with the powers that be: I'm now working the late shift by myself three days a week every week and I feel like a bigger crab for it. Yes, I've gotten more sleep on those mornings when I didn't have
to be in so early but then I have very little free time when I get home. I'm so sick of working a shit job with shit pay. I've found a couple of places to apply if I can ever find the time to work on my resume when I'm in a half-way decent humor.
Speaking of work, The Great Willy Bama
starts working in the Hell Hole with me and I'm hoping I get to train him. If nothing else, it will be nice to see a friend five days a week and maybe have lunch together every now and again. I like to think of this as a sitcom spinoff of ehowton
with myself in ehowton
What Will doesn't know is that he will
get a Live Journal if I start training him because I like to read my friend's list and comment from time to time during the day. So I need two favors from you my faithful readers: First of all, starting next Tuesday, I need a good two weeks of stellar content from all of you. Secondly, I need everyone to go over to Will's Xanga
and leave him a bunch of comments in an attempt to convince him that he should move to live journal. Links to specific LJ comments or posts will work too. Remember: Xanga offers anonymous commenting now just like LJ so drop him a note...make him figure out who you are.All I have to do is dream
In other news, I have found a story to adapt. It will take a lot of work and even if I can't secure the rights it will be good practice. Wish me luck.
OH!!! Speaking of other news, be sure to check out the link
at the top of my LJ. It is an RSS feed of things that I have found worth passing on from my feeds. Most of the content comes from either Engadge
t or Coding Horror
, with other minor feeds thrown in. This is made possible by Google Reader
's sharing feature. Be sure to keep an eye on that link for time to time or I might have to keep sending ehowton
news stories over AIM and that won't be good for any of us.
