Today was Tuesday – 9/20/2011. Songs that most closely matches my mood = “What Would Happen”, Meredith Brooks; and “Hysteria”, Def Leppard. I’m feeling tired. Exasperated. No pictures to share either.
Just feeling blah tonight. Got a text from Elisha last night before I went to sleep, but after I wrote here, that cheered me up after the crap I wrote about last night. She reported a rainy day at her place, and I cracked some jokes to make her laugh and cheer her up. But she didn’t get them. I sent a few more but no response. So I went to bed, and when I woke up I had a text from her telling me she never got my responses. Then that’s all I heard from her all day. Texted her a few more times and no responses.
I love texting – so much. I talk on the phone for a living, so really I otherwise just don’t enjoy talking on the phone. As a result I LOVE texting, and IMing. But it aggravates the piss out of me sometimes as it can be difficult to have an actual conversation. Because local life is often happening around us at the same time. So I’m trying to get some attention and just to feel close to someone, but who knows what is going on locally. Who knows what happens to distract me as well.The miles may as well be light years sometimes, and it’s frustrating.
Here’s another example of how my day went. A chick called to say that her keyboard had failed and she needed help with that. So I told her to find its USB plug, unplug it, and plug it into a different USB port. 99% of the time, that fixes issues where a USB device stops responding. Well, she said she didn’t know what cord that would be. Understandable, so I told her to grasp the cable coming out of the keyboard, and trace it back to the computer. Easy enough, right? Well she responded with this: “I’m not going to do that. Thanks for nothing – jackass,” and hung up the phone. People man – I don’t get it. You call for help, and you are given simple, logical directions that I could give to a GD 5 year old and get results. And that makes me a jackass. Really? How do simpering fools like this survive in the worldl?! I don’t understand it. There are also far, far too many people like this chick plugged into the main data hub of the Matrix. It amazes me that the Matrix functions at all. Seriously.
So, yeah, not in high spirits here today. I chatted with Mom on AIM – we talked about the teams leaving the Big East, and what will become of WVU. I think it would be cool if they joined the SEC, so when they came down here to play UGA I could go see them. I don’t think that’s likely to happen, but it would still be cool. I also chatted with Todd briefly. He had good news about his professional life to share, and that was good to hear. After what that chick did to him, he deserved some good news.
I watched some DVR goodness as the TV fall season is starting. Some good stuff starting up again, which is cool. I’m really getting into Sarah Michelle Gellar’s new show “Ringer” – that’s a cool show. Also Zooey Deschanel’s new show “New Girl” is HILARIOUS. Zooey’s character, Jess, is close to being a female me. I like to sing to myself all the time. Anyway – check those shows out.
I then played Mass Effect 2 for about four hours. I’m on the last mission with this character – prolly will finish this run tomorrow. Then I’m going to get started on putting notes together for a video I’m going to make for Elisha showing her how to mod both Mass Effect 1 and 2. That will be awesomesauce.
Well, that’s all I have for you. Gotta hit the hay. Until next time when I will share it all with you – After The Fact!
