Taking it off the grid - trip to wemf

I am leaving on a trip way up to the great north tomorrow to go to WEMF . (e:jon) convinced me to buy the tickets. Thank you (e:jon). I will be dancing in the sunny outdoors to all the favorite DJs from my childhood, while :jim sits through a typography conference ;)

I haven't been so far up in Canada. I am taking (e:terry) with me which will leave (e:matthew) to defend the fort. I think this is the first time we have ever been apart since we met. By the time we come back I expect the furniture and garden willl have been arranged so many times it will look the same, lol. I am going to miss him so much. I will also miss squiddy.

But even crazier is that I will be off the interweb for three days. This has not happend since 2003. My iphone will not work in canada, or should I say it will work in canada but cost me approximately $10,000 to run it with roger's damn roaming fees. I considered bringing the windows mobile and trying to buy a pre-paid canadian SIM but where do you get one?

Fighting over pills

I was on Asacol for Chron's and moved on Lialda which in fact changed my life. It is once a day, it seem sto absorb way better and it means I don't have to carry around pills all day an d remember to keep taking them. I am also 100% better since the swicth having liek 5-6 good days a week instead of 2-3.

Anyways, so I was surfing around for info about Lialda and found this forum
where pharmaceutical sales people ar arguing about Asacol vs Liadla. It is so freakin hilalrious the way they rip at each other. I never realized that those kind of arguments also went online.

Sales reps are strange individuals.


hey douche. symptomatic relief does not equal symptomatic remission. it took 43 days to get patients into symp remission. it's in black and white and it's in the study that you keep in your bag. look at it. ever ask yourself why the number of days to symp remssion isn't even reported in the Kamm study?



Nice post, douche. If symptomatic remission data is so important why are you assholes telling your docs that Asacol provided symptomatic relief in as little as 9 days? Because if you showed your docs the symptomatic remission data, they'd laugh at you and prescribe placebo. Keep sniffing the P&G glue, how many years do you have left until you can retire with that promised package?

Day at work, night at gym

Work
Work was great today. I had a meeting about my new position and get to move on the stuff I planned on working on as they seemed to vibe good with the VP and the auditors. I have so much responsibility now. My plan is to let the groups of people that use the specific languages, which there are many, decide on the standards, co-incding with industry ones. It is going to be fun to work on standards for languages like COBOL that I will have to leanr a lot about.

Then we had a meeting about the intranet and decided on the people for the focus group. I think the ideas I had are pretty radical and what Roswell needs to get by in for a new progresive intranet. It will be such a huge, yet fun undertaking. It is amazing how big my projects are and how much influence I have had over the direction of how things are going. It makes all those endless hours of programming, teaching, studying and practicing seem worth it. Before I thought I was throwing my life away being bound to the computer for so many years and now I realize it was just laying a foundation for something greater.

The Gym
Speaking of laying the foundation. Man, I am getting way buff. Tonight I worked out so hard I was exhausted afterwards.

In the lockerroom, I was talking to this gym friend of mine about documenting life on the internet and how sometimes I am scared of what would happen if the political climate changed and gayness was more frowned upon with some sort of reprocussion. It is kind of hard to pretend when your whole life is in google cache. He seemed kind of amazed at how much of this generations life is online. Imagine gen Y. I mean I am only X.

The rental property

The top apartment at our rental propert is coming along. We redid the kitchen floors, we painted, new appliances (still have to get a new fridge as the other one molded on the inside), finsihing new counters and light over sink - then it is done. It is looking really good finally.

It sucks doing work and having it not be the house you live in. We spent a lot of the weekend working on it.

The kitchen

The sink counter ends still need to be fabricated

The dining room. What to do with the hutch? Should I leave it?

The living room looks nice in white.

Damn someone had a bad day

I noticed this new hypodermic needle jammed through the window in one
of the buildings Kalaeda is buying near main and north. Having it
occupied should really clean up that section of town.

Here is the building that got stabbed.

Paul's grilled chicken legs

I made these last night and they were so freakin tasty. Marinate in
olive oil , garlic and thyme. Then turn half the grill on. Cook on
non fire filled side for 20-30 minutes with the grill closed. Then
move to fireside for final 5-10 minutes. Yum!

image

Some more tasty protein yummies. I love tuna.

Things that stress me out

This tree humping my house. It is my neighbor's tree and the reason I never do anything about it is because I feel bad having them cut such a big ole beautiful tree. On the other hand it is fucking up my roof.
