Well we’re inside of 24 hours now. Everything is packed, now its just a waiting game. I’m ready, I’ve never been so ready. The guys are almost there as it is and we’ll eb there in just a few hours. Check out this pic that Ben drew, (click for large version) I think he needs to be on some meds or something. Hopefully he’ll post a comment about what this all means. Off to relax before I leave…
I went out with the guys tonight. IHOP and Starbucks. Silly me ordered a Grande Lightnote at 10PM! It’s 330 and I’m still awake… Note to self: never drink regular coffee at 10PM! I’m going to hate myself in the morning!
Another boring day. Went to work, took erin to the body shop to get her car worked on. Went to the “other job” worked for a few hours, crapped out a miracle and made them all happy. Went to school, sat around for a bit, went to class. Remember all that cryign I did about this paper I had to write for marketing, yeah totally didn’t have to talk about it today… CRAP!
After school, Ben and I got a free pizza from Domino’s, something about filling out an app for a credit card then you get a free pie. Ben did it, used all kinds of bogus info, we got pizza, it’s all good. We went to starbucks after that and played poker with the guys. good times… i’m tired
I’ve been trying to write this post for a long time now, since November actually. It seems that when I go out and do just about anything I’m totally in a fog to what’s going on around me. When I’m out with the guys, Erin, or just by myself. I’m totally just in my own world. Sure I particpate and interact with the world around me but at times I feel like everything is just passing me by for some reason. For example, Wednesday night I had some time to kill and I needed to eat dinner so I headed to my favorite grease pit for some chicken and noodles and some time with a good book.
I arrived, ordered some food and almost instantly the piping hot noodles and potatoes were there, I love that place for that very reason. Good cheap food, fast. After I finished my meal I started to read and enjoy a cup of coffee, black coffee, nothing foo foo about it. As I was reading I found myself totally engrossed in the story and the characters of the book. I looked at my watch after a while, still had an hour to kill, back to the book. The next thing I knew it was 10 minutes past time to leave and I had not realized that anything had happened around me. As I looked up from the book I noticed that the scene of the restaurant had changed entirely, when I had arrived the place was full of old people enjoying a quiet meal, maybe 8 other people there total. After reading though, there were at least 40 people there, the place was packed with more old people, a few families and even some single people just looking for a hot meal on a cold night. When did the scene suddenly change, where was I?
I get this feeling nearly everyday it seems. I just space out from the rest of the world most of the time and spend my days in a fog of my own thoughts. I think of the great mysteries of life, you know, the obvious ones like Who are we? Where are we going? What is Spam really made of? I just think about everything all the time. I feel like sometimes I’m missing the most important things…Those that are right in front of me.
…bored as all get out. I’ve done everything there is to do. I even called my insurance guy to find how the heck I’m goign to keep my health insurance after this fiasco with St. Vincent’s and Anthem is over. Something about St. V’s doesn’t like the way that Anthem is paying so they are kicking them out. Trying to kill a giant with another giant basically. It’s screwing everyone in the middle though. All of my doctors are St. V’s and they always have been. I don’t want to try to find a new doc, eventhough I haven’t been to a doctor in quite a few years. I hate insurance.

Well there really is no other news. I’m playing poker with the guys tonight, maybe that’ll give me something to write about.
