breve [Aug. 13th, 2004|01:08 am]
[mood |zzz]

i've come to the conclusion that i should stop writing in this journal late at night when I have no ability to correctly represent thoughts with keystrokes. There were at least 4 conceptionally ambiuguous errors in the last 4 paragraphs alone. Come to think of it I should stop writing in this thing altogether. I have to admit that the only reason I even kept it up so long was the thought that on the off chance my ex girlfriend would read it and think to think about me.

somebody at Stanford has the license plate Fuzzie which I thought was cool. They were parked outside of Hammerschjikojzild but when I went to find out who it was the car was gone. Two black squirrels were chasing eachother all over the scaffolding of the maples pavillion site. They both came down a ladder. When one stopped to look at me staring at it, the other one barrel rolled it. Then it took off up a diagonal of a support structure and the other one left me to give chase. Reminded me of the squirrel scene in the animated Sword in the Stone.

In conclusion, squirrels and ducks are still show great potential for domestication and would give those dogs and cats a run for their money... but duck poo is gross. They crap all over the dock in Redwood City, so maybe just squirrels which is what I was talking about. And now I'm doing the it's late making no sense bit again.

Dial and Jack and Ahi all owned me at Halo. If I had a mouse and keyboard things might have been different.

bambi and the peacock [Aug. 11th, 2004|07:22 pm]
[mood |amusedamused]

This morning on my way out the door to work, I heard these intermittant squeels. I was hoping one of the cats had fatally wounded a peacock and was already getting prepared to raise my esteem for said felines. The a nearby neighbor has some 20 peacocks that fly, squack, and crap all over everything. It's the hot topic in my little corner of Woodside at the moment. Basically the owner is in violation of Woodside pet policies, which aren't enforced.. yada yada.

When I got out in the front yard I couldn't see or hear anything suspicious. I kept walking down the driveway still hoping for that peacock whose feathers I would take and make something cool out of for the wall of my dorm room. The family across the street seemed to be in a huff causing me to be depressed as the idea that their dog caught my peacock.

Two two sons and the father were sweeping across the yard towards some heavy bushes i couldn't see through. Their mother stayed between the bush and the fence. More screams. Now that I was closer they sounded like those screams from "Silence of the Lambs". I figured it out when I saw a female deer focused intently on the bushes from the horse trail by the street.

As I made it to the open gate, bambi (~14 months) came darting out of the bushes and bolted past me. It was one of the seven deer that lives in my backyard. It followed a car in the night before and was trapped in the entirely fenced off perimeter designed to keep deer out (most people have them which is why they like to live at my house).

Oh deer!

longest stupidest argument of the day [Aug. 11th, 2004|05:29 pm]
[mood |dumbified]

I had to sit in my cubicle, trying to work, as two accountants had the dumbest argument i've ever heard (today). They were so confused as to what's going on that I may not even have been able to piece together the simple facts of the story. But here goes.

1) They are trying to account for the 3 employees (of 70) who are full time but not quite. (Lisa and Susan both who work adjacently to me are two of the culprits of this work pattern.) By this I mean they work 80-90% of a "full workweek" 40 hrs.

2) So part of the problem is that our department of labor requires at least approximate hours to be logged for everybody. The number of days worked is sufficient if a percentage of a full day accompanies it.

3) The hangup point is how should days off be recorded. Do they take 80% of a day off, or do they take a whole day off. Do they report four days at 100% and then one at 0%.

4) what amazed me most is they fact that nobody could convey her own conception of the problem or her reasons for believing her answer. To my knowledge are they are able to argue competently about other topics... just not this one.

Quote of the day: "Imagine if your entire summer's work rested solely on a man who needs a calculator to multiply and divide by 10. He's about as smart as my sandals." -Peter Frykman

Dave, fix my *nux. You broke it.

If anybody wants to watch a Spanish movie with me (no subtitles) msg or call me. 650.430.3189

If you see this and I haven't replaced this with the quote I wanted from Xibit - Multiply remind me so I can change it.

Won't you sing to me your poetry,
Won't you take me to your home,
Won't you be for me forever
So I'll never be alone
And just one thing...
If you're my queen...
Then it's a beautiful thing...

day of suck [Aug. 10th, 2004|08:16 pm]
[mood |knocked down but i get up agn]

day begins at 1AM, as I wake myself in a caughing fit. Sleeplessness continues through the morning. I call in sick and do work from home until my dentist apptmt.

surprise surprise I have another cavity. conoseiur of hygene that i am it had been 2 years since my last dental apptmt. cost of visit with xrays and prescription toothpaste 290 $. covered by insurance. follow up for cavities, resealing, and some stuff i didn't understand... $700 half covered by insurance. The kicker, I have to get my new teeth yanked. $300 a tooth. plus $250 for general anesth. Not sure what of that is covered by insurance, but if not all of it God help me I will certainly do it conscious to save some book money. quote of the day: dental nurse equivalent, "Do you ever get a bad taste in your mouth?" to which I thoughtlessly replied, "Yeah, if I eat something that tastes bad." She then made a Stanford jeer.

lastly i checked out 20 books for some research before I go back to school. I had to ask for help carrying them all back to my car. Engineers never have to deal with that crap.

will put my head back to the grinding wheel tomorrow. tonight i'm reading and watching iRobot with my dad and sister.

yay i'm back [Aug. 8th, 2004|08:43 pm]
[mood |back]

just got back from MT. what an awesome trip. My family is awesome, extended and otherwise. I have a new cousin Leah Haufman, age 16 from AF, Utah. My good friend David Scheinman finally excepted the outstanding invitation to MT and joined us there for the whole week. Everybody loved him except my grandfather who said he talked too much. did two raft trips, three camping days, compete with GPS tracked shoulder-packing, and lots of wakeboarding and working out. I have lots of funny stories that I'll try to add as comments when I think of them.

doh [Jul. 29th, 2004|12:44 pm]
well it's not woodside mother count, but at work today a coworker stopped me and told me how nice it was to have a guy around the office. She said that young and virile. Then she basically said the CFO didn't count because he was effeminate. "Don't you think his F quotient is a bit high?" I'm not really sure what that means so I threw out a red herring. "Well, he is rather pensive at times." Score! Equally disarming statement.
