Patched up the huge speech recognition driver I’ve been writing for two weeks and sent it off for code review, listening to Japanese synth-pop on my new noise-cancelling headphones and I just popped a fucking delicious strawberry cream-filled panda cookie with a picture of a panda playing baseball on it into my mouth. LIFE IS SO OK

Getting paid by the Government Pt. 2
I am suppose to get a cheque for roughly $208 a month if I am going to school as part of the agreement with my Canadian Pension Plan. Usually I have to sign a form at the beginning of every semester and get it signed by my school to show CPP that I AM going to school. However, since I’ve been in a summer semester at school I have had to fill out the form even though I informed them in the...
Getting paid by the Government
I wake up this morning and my EI has been deposited into my bank account. All $806. LIFE IS OK.
DREAMS ARE OK
Last night I dreamt that me, my cousin and our friend were the Jonas Brothers (I was Joe). I transformed into a pig and hopped onto a rollercoaster that took me to an island occupied by a single building from the Forbidden City. I encountered Robert Knepper having lunch at a beach table and he attacked me with knives and telekinesis. I reverted back into a human and managed to defeat him with some...
Cutting through the clouds.
Last night while I was at work I was staring out of my window watching the clouds fly by, the sounds of my latest house mix pounding in my headset. Clouds rising 15,000’ above us and all around us, with more energy than a million atom bombs. Flashes of mountains and snow through gaps in the clouds, with lightning so bright it froze expressions on my crews faces like a 10,000W strobe. The...
I went jeans shopping tonight and came home with jeans, the goonies dvd, and the robocop trilogy. LIFE IS OK

It’s 0435 on Monday morning and I’ve spent all night editing photographs, doing laundry, and installing my new bedding. It took me nearly half an hour to get my duvet cover on. I know, it’s sad. But as I lie here on my white goose down pillows, my head is so nicely supported and comfortable. I think I will sleep well tonight…. as long as Melissa doesn’t msn me...

My Brother Went Back To School
Which means that he has to start sleeping regular hours again. Which means that I can work in the wee hours of the night and not hear someone yelling into a headset about zombies raping, or whatever.

step aerobic class.
my lovely sils. (sister-in-laws) took me to an aerobic class today. considering i work out and eat fairly healthy, cardio shouldn’t be that big of a deal. instead - during cardio the most trouble that i had was the rhythm and moves of the class. being at the back, looking foolishly like a dog is trying to chase its tail. i have finally found another ‘ability’ that i suck more...
That's a nice ass!
While surfing the many gossip blog sites that Natalie has me addicted to, I found a post about a fan video featuring Jared Padalecki’s ass. He plays Sam on Supernatural. There is even a game you can play to “Smack It!”. I have Smacked that and watched the video 10 times already… LIFE IS OK.
we have gotten ready to church @ 1.25pm, and arrived early; however, when we got inside the meeting room, it has already begun. apparently we didn’t get the memo that church starts @ 1pm now, we stayed for the last speaker and went home. 45 min. of church on sunday, and chris made me banana pancakes. LIFE IS OK.
20 Minutes Left
There are 20 minutes left of work and I have spent the last hour looking at Alexander Skarsgard pictures on the Interwebs. Also my manager gave me props for finding a memory leak. LIFE IS OK.
I just bought a new Acer 20” ws monitor for my computer. LIFE IS OK
So today at lunch they had no iced tea in the fountain pop machine so they gave me a bottle for free. In addition, I think the dude put someone else’s cookie with my sandwich. Sweet. Free cookie and bottle drink upgrade. LIFE IS OK. Edit: Oh shit, there are two cookies!
Holy shit, Ian Broyles liked one of my Tumblr posts. LIFE IS OK.

Fucking Righteous, Ticketmaster
I finally won. It wasn’t like that time at work where I got four Row F tickets for Flight of the Conchords and then lost them because management was calling me (only to later settle for a single Row T ticket, going alone). I got 6 front row tickets to Mastodon, Dethklok, Converge and High on Fire. ZOMG. LIFE IS OK.

So long and thanks for all the fish

2 days of Anime Convention, and playing Seylynn’s last show ever. Other than Seylynn shutting down, LIFE IS OK.

Moneys Fo Computers
Turns out I actually DO have enough money for the computer that I need to run Pro Tools at the speed that I selfishly force it to, but I still have to wait a month until the newer (but equally affordable) version comes out… So… Life is…? Yeah. Yeah, I’d say LIFE IS OK.
Oh internet, my friend
I was searching crunkcore because I couldn’t remember that oh so terrible band (Brokencyde), then my internet stopped working momentarily, and I had to reset my modem and router. Apparently the internet thinks it’s horrible too. Life is OK.
