Emptying the Camera Out

Roswell uses way to much freakin' salt. I guess everyone does, and everyone is afraid of being responsible about someone falling but what about the responsibility to the environment.

We had another fun experience with the bubble maker in the house. I cannot wait to get myself a computer with video editing capabilities.

Thanks, (e:ladycroft) - I got my birthday gift from you via Carrey.

(e:hodown,332) - the post about her ex with the everything box made me think about one of my everything rooms - which contained this picture of me in 1999 when I was still cute. It is amazing how many everything rooms you can fill when you have them.

image

I also found a good pic of (e:terry)
image

And I found this picture of (e:jacob) from the late 90s early 2000s kissing someone else we know.
image

Today was the last day of (e:lilho) having her car. It was fun while it lasted.

I see these bumper stickers everywhere. What is up with the peace bridge. I think we should start a new campaign to just knock it down, lol.

I'm putting our bed on craigslist

(e:matthew) was looking at houses online and saw this one on Summer. A bit out of our price range at $699,900. I find it ridiculous that the taxes are supposedly assessed at $5,544.00. That means that they are asking way more than they bought it for. As an example, our taxes on our $200,000 house are the same. The taxes on a $700k house are more like $17K.

I wonder what happend with them. Maybe they just were flipping it but it turns out their bed is also for sale on craigs list for $7000. (e:matthew) found it during his furniture sleuthing

Two Unmarried Men

We got the search from the house in the mail today. I find it funny that they emphasize how unmarried we are.

Post Partum Depression

How does this website have the right to sell my picture. I guess I probably signed away the rights when they did the Buffalo new article a couple years ago?

image

Do you ever have postpartum depression with a project you didn't really like at first but then you worked on it feverishly and it became an obsession.

I have been working on this large scale employee evaluation system since the beginning of time it seems. Mostly, because I had to consistently wait for things to be ready and because i am not the owner of the data.

Anyways, it was so boring at first. I really hated the project and then slowly as it grew it became kind of fun. Now that the project is wrapping up I am having a hard time being done with it, because I keep feeling like I could polish it up some more.

I am sure they will find things that need to be done with it once it "hits the shelves" tomorrow so I am not that worried.

The next project up is porting (e:strip) over to roswell software. That should be a much bigger project. The fun part is I only have about 3 weeks to do it!!!! What is up with project management here?

Ona nother note, apparently (e:terry) is most fertile.

NOT taking a bath may improve a man's fertility - even though it might not endear him to his partner.

Another Food Journal

We saw this car with a silent service bumper sticker. I took a picture while driving because I wanted to remember to look it up. This is what I found . I don't believe that can be it because the license plate looked so official. It even had a miniture SS before the number. Maybe just NAZIs.

image

(e:lilho) flew on over to our house for our last homage visit to compusa before it closes, leaving Buffalo computerstoreless for the foreseeable future. Everything is 5-20% off right now. Mac stuff is only 5% off.
image

image

Here is (e:terry) looking oh so sad.
image

I was a typical visit to compusa, then we went to Michael's for (e:matthew) and lilho got her hawk on.

image

Then off to red pepper for dinner. Yummy vietnamese food.

image
Her fortune.
image

My fortune was broken
image
But good
image

Yummy Pho
image
image

Afterwards to feelright for some free goji juice tasting (WIKIPEDIA - Wolfberry)

It seems to cure everything including cancer, libido and weight problems, lol.
image

Vegans have it so easy nowadays.

I'm down with PHP, ya you know me

I never thought of targeting this market. I should write an OOP javascript and AJAX book for teens.

image

But why the pretty-boy? Maybe there are more girls programming nowadays but I have to say I never see them in the computer programming section in the bookstore. Maybe they are so smart they don't need books.

Maybe it's for gay programmers. I looked at the book because of him but I still think they would do better with a cute girl on the front or even a spaceship or a race car.

If I was straight I would be embarassed to have the book lying around the house.

Danish Protestors Clash with Police

The clashes began after police evicted squatters from an abandoned building that has served as a center for anarchists, leftists and punk rockers.



More than 500 people, including scores of foreigners, have been arrested since the riots started Thursday. Authorities said 207 were arrested early Saturday following overnight clashes in which demonstrators pelted police with cobblestones and set fire to cars.



The wikipedia article about the "youth house" has already been updated
This is what makes wikipedia so great. It is already updated to include the most recent of recent history.

image

FRom the wikipedia article

In 1999 the building was set for sale to the highest bidder by the municipality following controversy on the renovation of the building and a refusal from the inhabitants to pay the rent agreed upon in the original contract. Which prodded the users of the building post a large banner on the fascade with the message: "For sale together with 500 autonome, stone throwing, violent psychopaths from hell.".



From

The building at the centre of the recent riots, known as "the youth house," has been viewed as free public housing by young squatters since the 1980s. The eviction had been planned since last year, when courts ordered the squatters to hand the building over to a Christian congregation that had bought it six years ago.



Vandals even covered Copenhagen's famed Little Mermaid statue with pink paint, though it's not clear if that's linked to the riots. In the past the statue has been beheaded, doused in paint and been blown off her perch with explosives.



Europe is so extreme. I love it. I think that americans can't get so crazy because first of all the police would just kill the protestors and second of all because we are so used to long term stability at home.

Here is a youtube video for calling the youth's into action


Here are photos from the building

The is a ton more info in the wikipedia article's (WIKIPEDIA - Ungdomshuset) external links section.

Police began clearing the building early (about 0700 local time, CET) Thursday, March 1st 2007.

Remembering a Life Before Food

Remember when my journal was a bit crazier. The years before I started only posting about food. It sees like getting food is now become the only social activity in my life. I have to keep reminding myself that soon winter will be over and I will do stuff like go on walks, go hiking, bird watching, etc.

I had lots of meetings yesterday. Turned out that we are going to be making a Roswell version of estrip for kids and young adults. I a excited to see how it turns out but this means I a going to be crazy busy from now until I leave for San Francisco.

The view from up top of Roswell is interesting. I bet it looks so much better in the summer.
image

The have all this missions furniture in the lobby. While I think it is pretty to look at, I find that that particular style is really standoffish and uninviting, I wonder why they went with it.

image

And for food.
For lunch we ate at the Delta Sonic on Main Street because they gave us all $3 coupons. They are kind of like a truck stop. My $5 sandwich came to $2. While I think the food was pretty ok, I don't like the atmosphere of eating at a gas station. At first I thought it was cool that you operate the touchscreen to order the parts of your sandwich but now I think it just feels like they were to cheap to hire ore workers and that you do the work for yourself.
image

Last night we tried to go to Casa Di Pizza but it was crowded so we headed over to Kosta. We were actually two cars worth of people so it was tricky trying to coordinate somewhere to eat. I am always a big fan of Kostas because they have the tastiest octopus.

image

I did not die from eating the bayleaf in my clam chowder. When we were kids (e:mike) was so scared of bayleaves.
image

I drank white wine and ended up with a headache again. I wonder if I have some reaction to the sulfites.

image

This is what I felt like afterwards. I ended up going to bed with a headache and everyone else went out.

A day at the office

Wow, I just wrote this huge journal but when I plugged in my mouse , my laptop short circuited and restarted. I think I was at the point where I was angry about the prospects of retiring in a cubicle.

The only sentence that survived was:

It is a huge waste of my abilities to have me make a CD-ROM which sells christmas cards. I just don't get it. It is like hiring an auto engineer to change your oil.

It is probably better I did not publish it.



I started eating jaw breakers because they are the only candy I cannot chew through when I am stressed out.
image

We ate at Gin Gin's in Chinatown on sheridan. I am fascinated at how the once oh so white KenTon is getting all multi-culti. Someone told me this story once about a suburb of Toronto that was the same way. They were saying that the city became trendy again and the canadians moved out of that suburb and back to the city. Then the suburb became like the ethnic hub.

image

Something about a blog in chinese.
image

(e:eknot) drank bubble tea. He agreed, shooting the bubbles out the straw was fun
image

I ate chopped squid. It tasted really good. I refuse to eat normal meat like chicken where I am not sure what the meat really is. You just can't fake squid.
image

The candy machine was full of nasty candy that had been there for years it looked like. Now, there was a sign that said it was out of order, but for how long. Why not just haul the machines away.
image

image

They have a regular american menu with the typical american chinese crap like sweet and sour chicken, but then they have a right to left chinese menu with the good stuff.

image

image

image

That area is definately becoming chinese. Remember when it was just kind of white trash with Ames.
image

Wow, these guys are poptastic

New Rugs and Video Liquidators Porn Shop

First of all I am using Google Picasa for importing and resizing images on my laptop. I suggest it for anyone who has a digital camera. It lets you do everything you could ever need with photos, touchup, rotate, resize, tag, sort into collections, etc and best of all it is free. You can get it here

image

We went to FWS this weekend, where I once again was not able to dress up my home for less. It seems like every time we go there it costs ~$1000.

My new rug brings out the brighter tones in my office. (e:matthew) got a nice new rug for the living room too.

image

image

image

Also seems like the road signs are taking a beating this year.
image

I can't believe anyone still buys this type of technology. It seems totally inappropriate for 2007.
image

While we were at FWS, I noticed the porn store next door now sells "420 smoking products" and "dancer footware." Notice the smaller sign to the right. What a weird combo, or maybe not.
