No Cream in my coffee!!!

Today I came downstairs to find that all of my coffee cream was gone... when I went to use the trash I saw the empty container sitting there. Normally if I were responsible for this it wouldn't bother me... Evelyn knows how much my morning coffee means to me... so she wouldn't do it...

I guess what bothers me the most is that my brother is such as ass hole. He drank over half my French vanilla coffee cream... and then has the audacity to tell me that I have everything paid for while he eats a sandwich made from bread I bought...

The other thing is that I just bought the cream a couple days ago. Normally that same sized container will last me over a week, but it only lasted a few days. You would think that... god dammit, I hate my family.... 'cept my Dad... he never does anything wrong... and he provides everything too. but my brother is a pompous ass hole... my mom bitches and screams about everything... Susie always leaves her kid here and tries to volunteer me to watch her kid... I guess nothing is really wrong with Sally and Sheila... but I never see them... and I just want to go back to Seattle.

This really is the last straw. I want out of this fucking state... Michigan sucks... there is nothing to do (unless you want to go to the bar or sit around watching TV)... no good jobs... it's cold... and I miss Seattle so much.


Well anyway... I get to go get dad from the air port today. Evelyn will probably go with me. I don't know when mom is coming home... but I know she is driving.

Other than that... I've been looking around at new (to me) cars... I kinda like the idea of a used Cadillac... that would be nice... but who knows right now. things are kinda crazy.

so, that's how my day started.

what to do now...

I have been trying to figure out exactly what my plan is... I want to go back to Seattle, but it's just so hard to try and get back across the country.

Funny how much harder it is to get across country without the support of your parents to help you out.

anyway... so, now evelyn and I are trying to move back...

We were thinking about moving to Holly, but I guess that isn't the best idea... not if I'm moving to Seattle...

I guess another thing that kinda sucks is that right now we need a new project manager at the company... and as much as it would suck to be stuck in the office all the time... it would be nice to make more money. anyway... I guess I'll just have to see what's going on.


Other than that... Jaani (my dog) is doing great! he is a cheerful over-attached little pug. but he's my little buddy... we just got a check from Genesee county for getting him fixed... so that helps...

this past week I went out to Gull lake... I stayed from Monday to Wednesday... and 12 hours Monday, 14 hours Tuesday, and 13 hours Wednesday... The Gull Lake Inn is ok... the beds aren't comfortable... the heater kinda sucks... and the TV reception is sometimes fuzzy... but Bernie and Josh are pretty cool... I don't want to go back out there... but there are 2 trucks worth of cabinets waiting to be sorted and unpacked... and work on the 7 science labs, 2 prep rooms, 2 CAD labs, 2 Art rooms, art gallery, and about a dozen offices need to betaken care of soon before we can move on to the next wing of the building... and the pressure was on to finish the upstairs art and science/prep rooms... I guess it is a 6 million dollar job... and having two guys working on it almost all alone for 5 months is kinda bad...
I fear that I'll be going back out there next week, but I don't know what I'm going to do with Evelyn... I hate leaving her here alone... because she still doesn't know anybody yet... and the only people she's met so far are all the way down in Dearborn... hmmm... .what to do... what to do.

anyway... Other than that, Ev has been looking at this job for National City bank... as a telephone banker... so, I was thinking with this check I would put her through driver's training... I think that would do her a lot of good. I kinda can't believe she still doesn't have her license.

oh well... that's life I guess.

I'll be back when I can think about more to say...

Another day in paradise...

well, I guess things are going well. The more I think about it, the more I want to go back to Seattle... and Evelyn wants to go back even more. I don't think it was the right thing for me to come out here, nor to bring her. I know we plan on getting married, but it just isn't a good place for either of us.

I guess that we will head back to Seattle soon. Part of me wants to stay until Cedar Point opens again, but mostly I just want to go back. I miss the mountains. Although, I was kinda thinking about California as my destination. I guess I don't really know for sure.

Anyone have any Ideas?

Fun with Google!

I've been playing around with all the google services... Google Checkout... the "new" blogger... Google Earth... Picasa... Google Desktop... Google Reader... Adsense... Froogle... Google Book Search... Google Code Search... not to forget Gmail, Google Video, and Google News...

My only complaints are that Google Updater doesn't work well for me... and I can't install the Google screen saver as a stand alone application...

I use Gaim in stead of Google Talk... and it works fine with the program...

Google Video is better than having TV... now even more so that youtube.com and Google have teamed together...

I am very happy with Google's services... and I'm currently working on the Google Maps API so that I can have a really cool map on my blog of everywhere I have been...
anyway... I guess that's about it about Google...

I also went over to Micro Center the other day... I got Google Hacks and Java Swing in a Nutshell for only $4.99 each... plus I got a 2GB USB flash drive for $15.99

Jaani (my dog) got fixed yesterday... and we picked him up from the doctor today...

I figured out that the other Laptop needs a new hard drive today... so I'm just going to throw a 60GB drive in there... I just have to get the drive from the store still...

I finished reading Introducing Philosophy... and started reading Introducing Political Philosophy I have been very happy with the Introducing Series... so much in fact that I ordered Introducing Hinduism and Introducing Memory and Learning just the other day from textbooks.com... I was happy to find out that using Google Checkout I could get $10 off my first purchase... so I think of it as getting 2 for one with the books...

so... I have 4 books, a wife, and a dog/kid to keep me busy for a while... on top of looking for a good computer job... I am getting tired of working in the carpentry industry... it just isn't much fun.

anyway... I guess that's all kids...

back from myspace

for a while now, I've been using myspace for my blog... but now I'm ready to go back to blogger... mainly because I think I've lost interest in myspace... an interesting fad though...

anyway... I'll think of something when I have time to write a blog...

later,
