Unsorted

I am at a weird point right now. Everything seems pretty unsorted in my life. I can't say that if I died tomorrow, I would be happy with the choices I made. That is not a nice place to be.

This needs to change, today and right now. I want to just take this weekend off the tracks and stop doing the same old things I do and the experience the same old panic. I want to start off anew.

I am promising myself that this weekend will be the most productive of any weekends thus far. And no other future weekends will end with panic ever more because they will all be better managed from now on.

Did you know that:

In 1752, the British Empire adopted the Gregorian calendar. In the British Empire that year, September 2 was immediately followed by September 14.



We will see how sorted I manage to be by September 14.

Arrgh, what's wrong now?!

Seriously, I can't seem to catch a break with my linux troubles. It's been hardly 14 days since my fresh install and things are already starting to act up with Crunchbang.

The stylus goes on insane object and text selecting sprees on its own and randomly refuses to be controlled. The bash history no longer takes orders from ~/.bashrc and never remembers even a line of history (even though I have set it to remember 10K lines). E4rat is installed and running, but applications have been slowing down.

I am SO sick of having to do fresh installs every fortnight. It borders on the illogical and for this reason alone windows XP seems rather appealing. Its rock solid and just as fast even after 1.5 years after a fresh install. Why OH WHY can't my favourite distro come even close to that kind of stability and consistency??

Peacock Shoe

I wish this shoe didn't have such hideous heels and were more of a flat Mary Jane instead. I would get it in an instant.

Well... maybe not this instant but most likely after a couple weak lopsided debates with my rational self on the complete insanity of shoe-hoarding. But those heels are the best safeguards against any impulse buying.

Hurricane Irene.

This massive hurricane is headed directly to NYC, Long Island and New Jersey. I am more than a bit worried. My brother is in zone A - categorized as the most flood and storm-prone in the city and likely faces evacuation this weekend.
image

Baruch College 155 E. 24th Street, HS of Graphic Comm. 439 W. 49th Street and John Jay College 445 W. 59th Street are the nearest evacuation centers. His building has already sent out an emergency preparedness notice.

All this is making me really nervous. I am desperately hoping that this hurricane changes direction and is somehow deflected well away from the whole NYC region. :(

It's not lent but...

A chain of rants in (e:metalpeter,55007) make me want to throw down this self-improvement challenge.

I am ready to
a) give up salt for however long it takes
b) start doing push-ups all over again everyday for however long it takes

if someone else wants to give up something or take up something with me and be accountable for that here. It has to be something that is causing you harm or is damaging your life or is negatively influencing your life to some extent.

Too much salt and not enough muscle definitely are negative influences on mine.

Who is up for this little last-quarter goal-setting?

Definitely an earthquake

I felt it and I thought, wow the wind must really be picking up in Buffalo. Guess it was really an earthquake and not just the building showing its age and resonating with the wind.



LOL@ this comment on the story:

Soon to be former Buffalo schools superintendent James Willians was seen jumping up & down in a temper tantrum b/c he could not get anyone to help pack his belongings...



Seriously, do people stalk the Buffalo news site just to post stuff like this? Hahah

This is the longest I have been on any website anytime in all of my www existence. I feel seldom bound to any online service or site unless it's for work/school or its services are just irreplaceable. I guess knowing everyone in person has made a difference here.

I feel more at home because of you all. :)

Lost my credit card.

I lost my primary credit card yesterday somewhere between home and pricerite. But take a look at who checked out my last transaction...
image

I cancelled it. Hopefully, whoever found it didn't have a chance to use it before they froze transactions. It was lucky that the card was not entered into the cash-from-ATM scheme.

Lucky or if you believe that last transaction... hehe.
