bye bye Comcast...

well, today the internet access got turned off... now I have to resort to my neighbour's internet connection. I guess it isn't that bad, but it is just annoying to think that she can't even handle one simple bill. I mean, I know that I am not completely supporting myself 100% out here, but I can at least handle myself part of the time. She can't even hold a job for more than 2 months... and even with Mani paying all her bills, she can't even handle asking for money to pay her bills.

oh well... what can I say... what can I say...

Well, I met with someone from Insight Global today. They said that they wanted to put me on the Microsoft Zune Social project. I said good idea. He called my old manager Jessica from the Zune Editorial team and she gave me a great recommendation. I hope that she spreads her word over to the Social project. I am also hoping to hear back from my other managers from Microsoft and Bungie. Hopefully I will be able to get the same excellent references from my other managers.

I just heard that Washington schools will not be serving beef for lunch at school. The Hallmark Meat Packing Company, in Chino California, was caught abusing cows! I just can't believe what I was seeing, but the worst part is that this sort of thing happens all the time! It almost makes me not want to eat beef... I somehow know that won't happen, but I really think that something needs to be done.

WARNING!!!!!! THIS VIDEO IS DISTURBING!!!!!!! WATCH AT OWN RISK!!!!!!!



That is one of the saddest thing I have ever seen.

Anyway, I'm hoping that tomorrow will be the day of change. I've been trying so hard to make progress, and I really feel good about this one.

Later,

P.S. This is the fourth snowiest winter ever recorded for us. Snoqualmie pass has been closed for days, and we don't know how long it will take before the pass can be opened again. Steven's pass was opened today, and the passes down in Oregon we opened, but the snow is still falling hard.
