Gift Blessing

Hmm.  Now it seems that I only put up new posts when I've been drinking.  Speaking of which, I'd like to thank the cute bartender and a few of those attending the wedding reception at the locat we ended up going to.  Your attendance this evening helped to make this post possible.

I don't have the gift of being able to talk to women.  I know a few guys that do, and for them it comes as naturally as breathing.  That impresses me, because it's something I don't understand.  28 years old, and breasts and curves still intimidate me.  Talking in general is no big deal, but any kind of discussion that may end up in a date is pretty much impossible for me.

Then again, not dating has been working out well.  I've been keeping a majority of my money in my wallet, and I just have one ex to fight with regarding my kids.  So pehaps this is a blessing in disguise.  This isn't to say that there aren't nice, decent, beautiful women out there, but more to say that so far they seem to want very little to do with me.  Grrr.

See, I knew I should have been working tonight instead of going out dirnking.  The ham and cheese sandwich from the grill was pretty tasty, though.

Good Intentions

Stupid blog.

Stupid life.

Disconcerting Laziness

Ashwaubenon schools are closed for spring break next week.  This means that Carter and Toliver are staying at their Mom's house at her request.

I haven't decided how I feel about this yet.  It's great that they can spend some good quality time with their mother, and I know that I can use the break, but it just seems weird when they're not here.  My place is obviously designed for a family, and it's disconcerting when the majority of the family isn't around.

The biggest problem I face when the boys aren't here is my own laziness.  When they're here, I make all kinds of plans of things I will do to occupy myself when they're gone.  But, once they've actually left, I find it very difficult to begin following through.

I'm pretty sure there's no way I'll make it nine days without seeing the boys.  It's hardly been 24 hours and I'm already having trouble with the fact that they're not around.  I've been productive for at least part of today, so that's good at least.  If I keep this up, perhaps I'll make it through the whole week.

Of course, that's when I remember that my ex wants to take the boys for the majority of the summer.  Now how am I supposed to handle that?

Broadband Sewer

Google has announced that they are offering free broadband service, called TiSP.  The delivery system is extremely forward thinking... forget electricity... instead, use the local sewer system.  Installation is accomplished via their GFlush system and fiber-optic cabling. The best part is in their FAQ:

Why is TiSP in beta?
When things go wrong with TiSP, they go very, very wrong. Let's leave it at that.

Daylight Savings Boomerang

So, since it's been a bit since I've put anything up here, I should point out that spring is on the way, even the though the last time I made a post it was still last year.  Stupid daylight savings time changes.

A lot of things have happened in the last few months, although nothing was really noteworthy.  I managed to break my garage door somehow, got a new PC, had my stupid Christmas tree boomerang back to me, gone out for drinks with friends and coworkers (too many times?), and otherwise have generally made a nuisance of myself.  I was really good at keeping up with the last one.

In other words, everything is on track as expected.  Not much else to say besides that right now.  I have the ideas for a few additional posts, but in the last 2 months or so I've really had a case of laziness.  Sucks.
