Yesterday was been an exciting day. And yannow, I've come to a realization: I don't tell you people enough about what goes on in my life. As a journal, at times my blog has been lackluster and I haven't shared every moment with you people. And I tell you what bugs me the most about not recording everything here is and that is this: most things are time sensitive. For example, I wanted to come home Saturday afternoon and write about Kevin Costner and Mr. Brooks
but I had to work. When I got back from work, I crashed and have been crashing every day since then.
Let me tell you about yesterday since I'm still excited and fantasizing about the possibilities. Yesterday the local talk radio station had a free lunch at the park. I got to meet the radio host who does the drive home show as well as his producer. I handed them both my card and told Will (the host) I would love to fill in for him sometime. He said his vacation was coming up soon and you never know. Now I know the likelihood of that happening is zero, but people are people and you never really know how things go with first impressions. If I do get the call, I want either ehowton
to call in even though they are from Texas and not Huntsvegas. For more info about the station, go to WVNN.com
I should mention that the site has a live stream. I should further mention that Mr. Anderson will have the privilege of meeting the President today so in that pure respect, I'm one handshake away from shaking hands with the President of the United States. How exciting!
I recently joined NetFlix in large part due to irulan_amy
of the service. Thus far, I am thoroughly enjoying this decision.
I don't like TechSupport. It's fun getting paid to do noting and it's fun to help resolve issues, but I don't like not being able to really
solve problems. Conversely, I couldn't stand programming the same program every day unless it was some project that I really cared about making more efficient, weeding out the bugs and making it an overall better and more enjoyable user experience. The irony of all this is I set up my Ubuntu box so that I could practice/learn Java and Perl yet I have not written a single line of code in over three years. I don't know. I want to make things more efficient but other then a massive database protype I've had in mind for years and an extension of a professor's Ph.D I don't have the desire. Maybe if I actually
worked on real code...but let's not kid ourselves.
The only thing I really care about is film. More and more, I'm thinking I'd enjoy writing more but wouldn't want to relinquish control over my scripts and therefore produce and direct. If I were really lazy and made enough money early enough, I could write and produce and hire a director to do all the work. Shallow, lazy and lame I know. Maybe I'm still in that depressed emo growing pains phase. I thought I was over all of that. Maybe I'm a purist and thus doomed for a miserable life. I'm not complaining, just hypothesizing.
In other news, the emo kid
has unfoundedly expressed his undying love of Ubuntu. I wonder how much CLI he does. Poor bastard.
It has been over a year since we have had Higgs news. :(
Now that I have successfully registered the domain name professortom.net, anyone who wants a peek at my scores need only leave me a comment. I will set you up with an SSH account on my box and send you instructions on how to obtain said scores.
There will be more to come. I will leave my comments on Costner for the weekend methinks.
