It’s been a bad day. Please don’t take a picture..

I love ignorance. It gives me something to vent my frustrations at. I spent a significant part of today arguing with a friend who has taken the view that everything American is bad. Unfortuantely it seems everything he knows is very biased.
I'm not quite sure what to do with that. I'm trying to open his eyes, but there's only so far I can really go. I guess I'll see what happens tomorrow. I did suggest he open his eyes a little more. Whether he does or not is up to him. We'll see what happens 🙂

It’s getting closer

Damn, what a morning. It started off busy, picked up in the middle and then just fell apart at the end.
Thank God it's time to go home. I'm outta here!
Need to spend as much time as I can with Bug 🙂

Da Bug

Before I went to sleep last night, I watched Bug, probably for a good 5 minutes.
It amazed me that something so perfect could come from me. I think I'm going to stay amazed, at least for a while. Hmmmmm.

I'm so tired today. I stayed up too late and had no energy. I did get to play with Bug for most of the evening. It's te most time we've spent together in a while. Was very nice 🙂

I'm going to miss him so much.

Sleep is for the strong

What a day. I wasted it all asleep. Now I have no energy!
Woke up to a nice smile and people wanting me to cook. That was really nice 🙂

Stargate Atlantis started tonight with a two hour episode. From the looks of things it's going to turn out to be a great show. I'm sure it'll end in a few years just as they find a way to get home, but hopefully will be good until then!

I really need to catch up on the old episodes. Better put that Netflix subscription to some use!

Friday!

Another busy morning. Kevinb left for his Africa Adventure today, so we're down a man for the next month. Plus with me going to Idaho for a week people here are going to be stretched quiet thing this month.
I'm sure it'll be over soon

I'm not looking forward to Brandy and the kids moving away, at all. In fact it's damn depressing 🙁 I hope Joseph doesn't forget me too quickly. That's going to be hard.

I'm trying to spend as much time with him as I can now. I'll just have to find some way to keep myself occupied while I'm alone. Let's see....

  • Star Trek episodes
  • Star Gate episodes
  • Seeing everyone on the webcam (damn, I must set that up..)
  • Writing more papers
  • Working on my software
  • Working on the forum hosting
  • I need more episodes.....

That should keep me going for a while I think 🙂

The busiest day that could

After 3am it didn't seem like this day could get any busier.
WRONG.
It's been non-stop for almost 8 hours now. Almost time to go home.
Mike suggested looking into web forum hosting. Sounds like a good and simple idea. Something I need to investigate more later though.
Sleep. I should get more sleep.

Start.

Joseph is 8 months, 1 week and a day old today.
When he was born last November, I said I would start my own diary.
It's taken me 8 months to do it. Doesn't bode well for the future!

What made me do it? Listening to Father and Son (the cover by Boyzone, not the original).
In 8 months he's changed my life in ways I couldn't have imagined. I used to be focused on my work, my hobbies, things that interested me and took all of my time.
Free time is a distant memory 🙂
Do I care? A little. Something different is the cause of my happiness now. I'm still as happy as I was, just for different reasons now.
In 8 months, he's learnt how to roll over, sit up, eat from a spoon (and a fork, and chopsticks..), stand up almost by himself, and say "mama" and "dada". His teeth started to come through in the last week. Dr Hammar the pediatrician claims to have seen only one other child whose upper incisors came out before the lower ones. He's special 🙂
I hope, when he's a little older, I can come back to this log and show him how he changed my life. Profound, in an indescribable way.
