People talk a lot about the internet and how it's making people even more disconnected with real life, but I would have to say that's a huge load of shite.

Bought a couple yummy smelling things for my apartment including a juniper aromatherapy candle and pear/vanilla bubble bath. I'm trying to spoil myself just a bit.

Combined with very little wind and just the right amount of moisture in the snow, it fell in the way that it sat in perfect little piles on top of everything. All the trees were coated with about a half inch of the clean white powder and even though it made everything super slick, I couldn't help but walking with my head tilted back in the air to look at it all.

I will not miscontrue my friends giving me a lot of crap for them not liking me.
January 27, 2001
A group of us went bowling tonight for friends birthday and it was my first time in quite awhile. Even though I now smell like a grungy bowling alley, we managed to have a blast being loud and goofy.

It was cold in my apartment when I got home and all I felt like doing was laying down and hibernating for a little while. So I did.

I heard the sleet stinging the roof outside just as I started to boil up some water for dinner. It was an interesting play of sounds with the hot water bubbling while the small ice pelets clicked outside. Like a temperature spectrum symphony of water. I turned on the kitchen sink and let it drip for 3 part harmony.

I got a roll of pictures back tonight of faces. Lots of faces that made me smile when I looked at them and begged for framing. I need to and will take more pictures of people.
January 23, 2001
Since I live on the third floor of an old house, the roof slopes at funny angles in places and it makes for some weird corners, like a shower that I can't stand up in. Fortunately, the bathtub is huge and I'm learning the joys of soaking in a pool of water and relaxing a bit.

I had to wake at 6:15 this morning to be at work by 7 a.m. When the alarm went off, I had the distinct taste of bile in my mouth and it was almost enough to nauseate me completely. Not a good start to the week.
January 21, 2001
Played ultimate frisbee today for two hours. I took one five minute break in that time. I'm feeling really really tired, but good.
January 20, 2001
It's the same bed, but in a different place. The same couch, but a different room. I moved all my stuff today into a new apartment and although all my stuff is the same, it's still kind of new and exciting to me.

If you can handle movies that leave you feeling like your body has been pummeled and then left laying in the street, I would highly recommend Requiem For A Dream. It's beautiful and devastating and a visual and aural assault.
January 18, 2001
I started moving tonight (just upstairs to a much bigger place). About one-third done and my apartment is starting to feel a lot less like home. I'll have to learn a whole new floorplan for walking around in the dark.
January 17, 2001
Tonight, I finally got rid of the first computer that I bought on my own. It was an old Mac Performa 450 with a 120 MB hard drive, 8 MB of RAM, and approximately a 33 Mhz processor speed. When I first started this site, it's what I created everything with, and I wrote hundreds of pages of college papers on it and it served its purpose well most of the time that I owned it. Even though it had become little more than a glorified paper weight, I was still sad to see it go.

Reading things I wrote a year ago, it's hard to imagine that I would be writing the things I am now. It's a good thing, though. A damn good thing.
January 15, 2001
There are little things in my apartment that change once in awhile, but for the most part everything stay in the same place or general vicinity. It's funny how when new items are introduced, even if it's over a period of only a couple days, that they quickly become a part of how I percieve my surroundings. Then, when they're taken away again, it's a bit sad and I miss them.

Oh sing me a song about the mangos. The mangos are sweet and tasty. And sing me a song of honey. Honey is sweet and tasty too.
January 13, 2001
I'm in favor of newspeak, as used in the book 1984. Words like nervousgiddy and happysilly are much better at describing feelings than than traditional ones.
January 12, 2001
As many of you well know, sometimes it's the smallest little hole-in-the-wall restaurants that end up having the best food. My pad thai noodles were never better.
January 11, 2001
As of today, I've officially let my facial hair grow out the longest it's ever been. Almost two weeks worth of stubble, but it's all coming off tomorrow, because it's getting a bit scratchy. That, and it's just sort of annoying.
January 10, 2001
For some reason or another, I've been listening to lots of hardcore music lately. Swedish hardcore by bands who have since called it quits to be more precise (Refused). I'm not in a bad mood, it just sounds good lately.
January 9, 2001
Since I don't have caller ID and I don't always know who is going to be calling me (although I thought it was my brother this evening), I probably shouldn't answer my phone by saying 'Yo!'
January 8, 2001
When I walk around my apartment in the morning, my toes all make little popping noises as I move about and start my day. It's normally something I don't notice very much, but I didn't turn the radio on as soon as I woke up today and heard them crickcrack as I went about my busines for a few minutes in the otherwise quiet.
January 7, 2001
Saying goodnight sometimes takes 2 hours.
January 6, 2001
The weather was so warm that I couldn't help bending over and making snowballs out of the soft, melting snow. Even when my hands were nearly numb from tossing one after another, I continued on.
January 5, 2001
Lethargic all week so I slipped on my sneakers tonight and ran under a bright moon. It reflected off the snow in sort of a hazy blue way and even though I hadn't ran in quite awhile, I felt pretty good.
January 4, 2001
It's been quite awhile since I shed a tear at a movie, but I did tonight. I think it was the combination of the movie (Dancer In The Dark) being so damn depressing and some other things on my mind, but tears were going down my cheeks and I was sniffling away. It was good.
January 3, 2001
I have a pretty good memory, but augmenting it with real photographs never hurts.
January 2, 2001
I just want everyone to know that I usually shower at least once a day, usually before I go to bed. Sometimes, however, there are good reasons not to.
January 1, 2001
It's a new year, and if the remaining 364 days go as well as this first one, I'll be a happy happy fellow.
