so. what's up with me?

well, let's see..last week was hard on me, as we all know. work was a bear...i was in trouble a bit, too...

on the up side, i'm one of these now:

and i'm working on my MCSD.

so anyway, that's nice. this week i wanted to buy tickets to the something corporate show while i'm in chicago..sold out, which sucks. i am hanging out with a few ladies while i'm up there, and i wanted to take one to a concert. looks like that isn't going to happen....anything worth seeing is already sold out. drat. i need to figure out something else to do, which shouldn't be too hard..prolly a fancy dinner so i can get her to dress hot. but still, this isn't a great way to start things up.

on the extremely down side...i hooked up with connie lechler uh...when i was 19.

her mom killed herself last week. mrs. lechler's parents died within nine months of each other last year, and she just wasn't able to hang on.

it's a real extreme shame because wendy, the oldest daughter, is going to have a kid in about 4 weeks. grandkids always make things better, so i wish she had held on just a little longer.

and i'm bummed because i just found out about it, so i missed the viewing and funeral. i would have gone to the viewing, damnit. kelly just forgot to mention it, which sucks.

Ugh. That's rotten.

My stepbrother killed himself the day before my little brother's 12th birthday.

It was a party that year, let me tell you.

I know that if someone is so desperately sad that they are ready to off themselves, they're not paying much attention to what's going on around them, but come on.

Sometimes you can't help but be pissed off at the selfishness.

Sorry for your friend, it's a really tough thing to go through.

Congrats on your certification!

How's Evie?

that was kinda my first thought, too.."man, how selfish". it's so sad.

Evie's gonna be three on tuesday. woohoo! she's doing well. she'll be visiting her mom this summer, so i'm trying to line up some stuff to do to keep me occupied.

Aw, three is such a great age. I think I love kids most between 3 and 6. Their little personalities are just developing and growing so much then, and the things they say! Hilarious.

So, are you gonna be a wild party person for the summer? ;)

So, are you gonna be a wild party person for the summer?

if i can afford it, and if i can have somebody partying with me.

partying with yourself is just another form of masturbation.

Mm, that makes a certain kind of sense, that.

Congrats on your MCP! What tests do you still need for your MCSD?

That's terrible for Jen and Connie. I know losing your parents is rough, but it seems like once they get to a certain age, you should really start preparing yourself. Hitting your loved ones with that kind of shock is pretty brutal.

i took the windows app test, and the SQL server test.

i still need to take:

1. web app test.
2. web services test.
3. design and analysis test.

Re: ws

.net, yup.

i know plenty about web apps...not enough about the behind the scenes bullshit that comes along with ASP, though.

i don't think i'll ever understand suicide.
taumeson From: taumeson Date: April 8th, 2004 06:04 am (UTC) (Link)
i think i understand it, which is why situations like this piss me off, cause it doesn't warrant it.

suicide is an act of the truly desperate, but most americans don't know what true desperation is. i mean, if the enemy is closing in and you're down to one bullet...well, perhaps suicide is the right answer. but man, circle of life and all that.
swolfe From: swolfe Date: April 8th, 2004 06:41 am (UTC) (Link)
fuck that. that's one more enemy that can be taken out...
taumeson From: taumeson Date: April 8th, 2004 01:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
frankly, i'm with you. i mean, if you're gonna die anyway, right?

actually, at that point i'd prolly shoot and then attack hand-to-hand.

but anyway, that's an instance where i can see how somebody'd be desperate enough to take their own life.
