Phones And Bacteria

No, bacteria did not eat my phone thank god because I love it. I am able to get 1360kbps on ATT's new HSPDA 3G network in Buffalo. Thats so fast.

I almost killed a bunch of people trackng my driving with the built in GPS. I guess that is why they have the don't use while driving warning.

I bought some bacteria for my stomach. We will see how that goes.

Patrick Oneill Chiropratic on Bidwell

I went to Patrick Oneill Chiropractic on Bidwell in order to get my neck fixed as per my previous post. I just did it on a whim. I had never been to a chiropractor before and had no real idea of what it was going to be like. No one recommended him to me. I just saw the sign on his office.

image

It seems to have fixed my neck. Even the Chiropractor wouldn't believe it. Seriously, it made such a difference.

Here's the hitch. I went back today for a follow up and it didn't do anything new. Then he asked to schedule another appointment for next week but now I am feeling diminishing returns. So I ask myself, is going the first time like getting high the first time when you are a kid and then you always try to go back to that place but never can until you just give up or die. If that is the case then I would just quit now before I have to deal with years of chiropractic costs - not that it is very expensive.

$50 for the first appointment and $35 for follow-ups.

Other Stuff

We ate at JP Bull Feathers in the basement for lunch. For some reason I never eat there, but it was quite tasty.

The elmwood sign almost blew off in the wind storm
image

I had to work so hard to not take it home. I left it up to whip off and kill some one. Which was really the moral choice?
image

This on is for (e:leetee) in regards to her comment on (e:paul,42336). Does my back look straighter?
image

I think I should just write in my journal more. It makes me happier. Thanks guys.

Muhammed the Teddybear

"85% of all Sudanese are below the absolute poverty level (which means their lives are in danger because they do not have enough money to provide food, water, and shelter for themselves)."



(e:ajay,42342), I can't believe that story either about the British teacher who was working in Sudan, and let her students name a class teddybear Muhammed. She is now in hiding under death threats from angry mobs learned her lesson about helping poor people in third world countries.

I think it is time we just give up hope on all the ones that have fundamentalist religions of any nature and poverty combined, which is about all of them. Its a hopeless case, I say let them all fight each other to death or eat themselves. Someday when everyone else is goin g to heaven, I am going to be judged for that statement.

image

I can't really believe it but I am really over the top sick of religious freaks getting all angry about stupid shit. It is a teddybear. I don't care what some crazy, obsessive compulsive person wrote down in a book ages ago and you believe - it is a freakin' teddybear and you people are whackos. Don't you have better things to worry about - like where your food is?

I am so angry about this I am about to rename Basra - muhammed in protest - an he is just a dirty, eat his own shit kind of beast.

I have stuff I want to talk about

Movies
I don't ever want to see another movie where they shoot children. I am over violent movies altogether really. I just don't want to see movies anymore. I hate movies. All of them.

Surebert 4.0
I released surebert 4.0 but the website still reflects the 3.21 version until I get a chance to update that. Right now it is at No one cares probably.

Death
Someone died but I am not going to talk about it until later... It is no one that you know.

Food
I went to Pho 99. I am not a big fan of asian food under $10 as it usually is substandard ingredients. Pho 99 usually tastes good. I mean, I like the lemon grass chicken but what are those chewy odd shaped bits that taste ok.

However, today the hair in my eggroll just kind of ruined it for me. I took a picture so everyone could want to vomit like I did. I guess I ate the other half of the hair. At least it was deep fried. I managed to make it all the way through lunch without telling everyone so that they weren't grossed out. It was really hard to do that.
image

Stomach
My stomach still hurts and is causing me a huge amount of stress.

Neck
My neck no longer hurts and I can turn it. Do I bother going back for my scheduled follow up at the chiropractor tomorrow? I have to say I feel great but am seriously a little scared to go back.

Lungs
I ran home in the freezing wind because of the news and my lunsg hurt for like 25 minutes afterwards. Don't run in freezing wind.

Drugs
I need some sort of anti-anxiety drug in high quantities right now. I am seriously about to have a nervous breakdown about nothing particular, which is not a fun feeling.

Time off
I have like 3 days left to take off 13+4 hours which is impossible with my workload. Great!

Haircut
Last night I cut my hair.
Before
image

I had this horrible zit/cut/scratch/infection on the back of my head that was seriously stressing me out so much that I shaved my head. Will it please get the fuck off of me now. Either that or consume me quickly and just end it. But let me tell you zit, that if I die, you die too.

At first I thought there were only a few white hairs
image

But then there were so many
image

After the haircut
image

Obligatory Paul is a cyborg with a new phone shot.
image

This is how I feel tonight
image

The fuckin' bridge
Is it going to be a signature bridge or a twin span. NO, because it is like 40 feet long so finish it already. Everytime I look at it, it makes me think abou tall the stupid things that never get completed. (e:jim) says it started on fire, and it is definately a bit crooked now. How hard can it be to either put it up or knock it down.

Catching Up

I am going to write a journal about my experience with Chiropractic but I am waiting until after my second appointment on Friday because the Chiropracter is hyperlocal and does not have a web presence so whatever I say is going to kind of define that for him.

So far it is going good but I don't want to speak too soon. I can at least turn my head without wanting to throw up. Really that is so much better.

Here are some pics with me and my new phone.

image

image

Last night I watched Star Trek on it in bed. The episode was a voyager episode but it had Diana Troy in it. When (e:matthew) caught me watching it he was so mad that I had cheated on him with Diana by watching her without him. I thought it was funny - I hope he wasn't really mad, he loves her.

It is the eve of surebert 4.0 I think depending on how I feel in the morning. I am on this new kick where I am refusing to program outside of work until I can not be sick but I find life really boring otherwise - at least in the winter.

Okay, I am off to see Mist. I am sure I will have something to say about it.

writing from my new phone

The keyboard on this phone is much better than my old one but still not as awesome as the sidekick2. Maybe I just need to get used to it thlught because I can already type really fast on it.

The GPS is nice but like 3 said I don't go anywhere. Okay next step is to watch startrek on it.

My Stomach

Like right under my stomach has been hurting for about a week now. No matter what I eat, no matter what time of day - it just kind of hurts - sometimes it feels a little better but mostly hurts, especially after I eat. I suppose maybe I should see a doctor, but I keep telling myself that it will go away - hoping it is a flu like symptom because (e:matthew) just had a flu.

Please don't let it be an ulcer ;)

Resolution and relationships

The way the garden looks, is how I feel right now.

image

I guess at least the new phone is coming tomorrow, although at this point nothing can really make me happy. I think it is time to join the gym again. This time I am going to try Allentown Athletix, which is just around the corner form us.

I got into a huge fight with (e:matthew) yesterday about a random chimney shaft in our bedroom wall that connects to no mantel. Based on previous pictures I had taken with a web cam on a 6 ft USB chord, I thought that the tunnel went down and to the left but what I thought was a "floor" and a tunnel to the left turned out the be an odd brick of the side of the shaft wall.

I thought that brick or whatever it is was the bottom in the usb webcam view and that the hole on the end was a turn to the left.

image

When I switched to the 7MP camera with flash I got a much better view.

image

I wish I didn't get so angry about it at 2am last night. Sometimes, I can be a jerk. I am embarrassed for the way I acted but I was so sure I was right.

Anyways, the good news I think we can switch the Den and our bedroom and get a wood or gas burning insert similar to the one that (e:enknot) has at his house and have it be direct vent. This is a much better alternative to the next vented ones that make me ill.

You can see the chimney straight up and it looks easy enough to line it ourselves considering it is just a straight trip up.
image

I thought someone might find this amusing

Look at the clipart they used in this professional article about the iphone in Europe. It is a freakin' old white ipod on a slide phone, running windows mobile. Seems like no one fact checked that one.
image

I am switching from qmail to postfix and got my book in the mail today. I am not sure why. I just wanted to try something new and got sick of setting up qmail on the new server although I did it before on the old one.
image

There has been lots of progress on the new site, don't think I forgot! I just hurt my neck and it is slowing me down, argh.

paul 18:52 i thought I wanted to kill myself
paul 18:53 and then it hit me that I was bored



We went to the broadway market this afternoon. It was lame. Maybe we went at the wrong time but I will surely never go back to find out.

The way there was so pretty. I love traveling down sycamore. It is by far the most scenic view of Buffalo.

(e:terry) says they are developing som enew village here that he read baout on Buffalo rising.

image

No seriously, it makes me want to do a documentary about the history of advertising signs that rusted out.
image

While this pretty church is dead, every single other non-burned down, non-boarded up warehouse and crappy house is some other sect of freaky Christianity with blacked out windows.
image

This is what I expect in a Christmas Market.
image

Then we got there...
image

and this is what it was.
image

Back over to elmwood

We got new glasses today at Elmwood Specs. I had the same prescription. My only problem with the place was that the doctor brought her dog with her. I was very allergic to that kind of poodley dog so it wasn't so horrible but if it had been a cat, I think I might have died.
image

Why did stache or whoever owns this building paint the half timbering over? It seems really trashy.
image

I hope elmwood doesn't become sycamore ever.
