I did some tactile work tonight on an upcoming project that I'm going to launch sometime in the next couple weeks. I know that I'm being rather cryptic, but I will say that it's the most excited I've ever been about something that I've come up with for this website. If it works, it has the potential to be a very neat thing.

I helped some people move today and while on the interstate, a box flew out the back of my friends truck and somehow landed in the median without being hit. We turned around and he pulled over on the shoulder while I ran across the two lanes, picked up the box, and zipped back across. Although I was never in any danger of being hit, the fact that cars were coming at me at about 70 miles per hour spiked my adreneline and made me wired the rest of the way home.

The DJ spun super-hard beats at the club tonight. 140+ bpm = me really sweaty.

A friend and I watched a drunk, smarmy guy try to mack on every single girl on the dancefloor tonight. At first, it was kind of amusing, but after awhile it got really frustrating, especially when I'd jump in-between him and someone and he'd go right around me anyway.

Damn, I ate a lot of sweet food today. Just thinking about it makes my teeth hurt.

Fire evacuation at work this morning. When I walked by the ringing bell, I tapped my finger on it and the piercing ring went to a dull thud each time. Oh yeah, it was nothing serious.

Seeing a picture of a plane on fire only seconds from impact is something that sticks in your head for awhile.

After my computer crashed today for the 4th time before noon, I had to vent. I grabbed a mis-burned CD-R off my desk and stomped on it with it's spine up. It shattered and made an eerie breaking sound, sending splinters of reflective plastic all over under my desk. I picked it up about an hour later, after someone had noticed the mess.

I think that I must be the easiest person to make tear up at a movie. Tonight, some friends and I watched Strictly Ballroom and I got a little misty at the end. Either that, or I'm just a seriously big sap.

I watched as my double-exposure photographs came out of the machine from being developed and couldn't help but making noise and freaking out as each one seemed better looking than the one previous.

I like sweet corn. I like the juices dripping off my chin. I like putting butter, salt, and pepper on it and eating it like my mouth is typing 100 words a minute on a typewriter carousel.

When I left the club tonight, I was so sweaty and hot that my shirt and pants were both very wet with sweat. To all those people who were staring at me; I did not pee my pants, it just looked like I did.

I get so overzealous when I'm playing new music for people that I often times only end up playing 30 second bits for them before switching onto something new. I get scatterbrained and frantic, but it's just because I like the music, really.

Cookies are such a temptation to me. I know I should limit myself to 3 or so a day, but the next thing I know, I've eaten 7 of them.

To all you guys out there: Getting your prostate checked is everything it's cracked up to be and more. Zowie.
To all the ladies: I now have an even greater respect for the examinations you have to go through (endure) every year.

It rained today slightly for the first time in awhile. I tilted my head straight back and closed my eyes, letting it fall on my face until several drops had landed on my eyelids and cooled them slightly.

Are they short pants or long shorts? I don't really care. All I know is that they're comfy.

Just as the credits started rolling, people started milling in the aisles and I heard one man yell "someone call 911!" The tone of his voice and how he said it led me to believe that it was just his way of saying he enjoyed the movie, but I watched down by the front and saw that something was definitely wrong. I could see the glow of cellphones and everyone in the theater began chanting for someone to turn on the lights. After a couple minutes went by, the lights were on and the paramedics were arriving. I didn't see what had happened, nor did I watch the credits. I heard that someone had had a seizure.

The only thing that I'm sure I want right now is to continue this website. Nearly everything else is upside down and inside out.

I'm sliding. I'm sliding and this depressing music I'm listening to isn't helping one bit.
July 11, 2000
I was giving my friend crap today about how long it had been since he updated his site, then I shut up and realized he has a life, unlike myself.
July 10, 2000
When I was walking down my back staircase tonight to do some laundry, a spider web caught my eye and I stared at it a bit too long. I ended up stubbing my toe and spilling laundry detergent before I caught myself and moved along.

The heat hasn't ended yet. After my rollerblading trip today, I spent 30 minutes just laying in my bathtub sweating and finished off nearly 2 liters of water in that time.
July 8, 2000
Got my pictures back from my trip and was glad to see that I had some nice ones. Worked up a layout for my trip journal and had a super-duper productive evening in general. Permanently in the "In Other Words" section, I present New Mexico 2000

Rollerblading 10 miles in 95+ heat really did a number on me tonight. I got really dehydrated in the heat, but it felt good good.

Question: Does it count as a letter if it's a scanned picture of a handwritten one attached to an e-mail?
Answer: When it makes you smile from ear to ear and blush, the answer is a most emphatic yes.

I guess that it makes sense eating mexican food for three meals in a row when you're in the southwest. Even breakfast.

Jumping off sand dunes doesn't sound like it would be that fun, but it's quite exhilirating flying 30-plus feet through the air and dropping about 15 into knee-deep white sand.

Under an open sky, miles and miles from the lights of civilization, I saw the stars in the night sky more brilliantly than I ever had before.

Carlsbad cavern is one of the coolest things that the United States has to offer in terms of natural wonders. Not only did we walk the normal tour, but due to a friend (shouts to Mouser), we had a private tour and got to see even more of the amazingly massive thing. Sitting in the complete dark 850 feet under the surface of the earth was a personal favorite.

Saw a friend I hadn't seen in 2 years and we were still finishing each others sentences and laughing at inside jokes like usual.
