I can't get mad at the teenager for somehow failing to record the season finale of CSI:Vegas with DVR. Her disappointment at not being able to watch it until who knows when (quite possibly forever)is more punishment than I would ever be able to mete out. Now I have to pray I know someone who has used the primitive VCR to tape that episode so I can get my hands on it before the soldier sister comes home to discover that we have failed her on the home front (all she asked was that we keep the place clean and record the CSI season finale, how hard is that?).

guess what. STILL no home access. it's a little frustrating, i didn't really realize how much i depended on it. neverthless, i joined netflix, i figure i have enough downtime here and there at work to update my list when needed. other than that, most is good.
my summer is so free. come visit. eat burgers.

A few weeks ago I attended the funeral of a childhood friend's father who passed away unexpectedly. I've known the friend since the third grade, and I had maybe a dozen brief exchanges with his dad. But for some reason, the funeral hit me pretty hard...especially when my friend was at the podium talking about how his dad would want to be remembered. I guess I was just picturing myself in my friend's shoes, talking about the loss of one of my parents.

On a happy note. I ran into some high school friends that I hadn't seen in years. One of them reminded me of how I got so pissed off at him that I left him stranded at school. What's so funny is that I can see myself pulling the same shit all over again today. Who says that time makes you grow up?

If I start behaving irrationally, it's because I'm snorting pollen. It looks like I'm just smelling flowers but I'm really snorting pollen. I can't get enough of the way it gets me all congested and sleepless.
