there are days when my zoloft works... there are weeks when my zoloft works... unfortunately, my zoloft hasn't worked for weeks. i have been in this funk. i'm in it at work, i'm in it at home, i'm in it on gno and i'm in it with the rocker. i don't know why. nothing is really wrong. i really should be happy. but, i'm just not. and for the most part, i don't even want to talk about it. how weird is that? … [Read more...]

it works!

coldfusion and i have been having a fight for months. i want it to not prompt for a network password, and it wants to prompt for a network password. today a uber cool dude over in the college of business figured it out. yes, i didn't give permission to the coldfusion folder to inet_user. what a loser am i. but, now at least i can launch... if i can get it to see the sjsu style sheet. happy dance! happy dance! … [Read more...]

yarn = happiness!

i had such a wonderful time at stiches west! i can not tell you how absolutely inspiring it was! on friday, my day started with having breakfast with my dad... who is still not quite himself... i think that as weeks go on, things will get better, but i'm worried that he will never be the same again. we went to this little place in danville called ruggies... it's ok. i had 1/2 a bennie. if i had been good, i wouldn't have eaten my hashbrowns... i wasn't good, but they were. i dropped my … [Read more...]

if thursday is friday, why am i so tired?

that's right, i'm going to take a vacation day tomorrow. i'm so excited, but i wish that i was really going to do something... well, i am going to do something. i'm going to go to stiches west 2004 up in oakland. i thought i might take a class, but then i decided that i really didn't want to. this is my first knitting convention, and i'm not sure what to expect. i'm guessing that i will be kicking myself upside the head for not taking a class. oh well. i'm also going up to danville to … [Read more...]

is lax a fun place to hang at, or am i just insane?

yesterday, i had the pleasure, no, dare i say the privilege, of going to the chancellors office in long beach. apparently since the keeper of the academic calendar left, i became the keeper of the calendar. so... i put my butt on an airplane and set off on a journey to learn about calendaring in the csu. what a load of crap. i have no idea why i had to go... i have no idea why sjsu had to pay for me to fly down, to watch someone go over powerpoint slides. hello? isn't that why companies … [Read more...]

friday five on monday

1. Are you superstitious? i think to a certain extent i am. i try and stay away from black cats... i believe bad things come in three's... then there are the parking gods... 2. What extremes have you heard of someone going to in the name of superstition? i hate to say this, i don't really pay that much attention to it. i know about football players not washing their underwear week after week... but that isn't really extreme is it? 3. Believer or not, what's your favorite superstition? i … [Read more...]

barbie dumps ken

after the argument, the rocker and i watched countdown with keith olbermann. one of the stories was that barbie dumped ken after 42 years of being together. And it might just be the time for you to get rid of that sack-of-stuff boyfriend or girlfriend. Yes, I know, Valentine?s Day is Saturday. But so what? You would rather fake it for another holiday? If Barbie can do it - you heard me, the Mattel company announcing today that said Barbie has kicked Ken to the curb, seriously. ?Like … [Read more...]

so i guess i wasn’t back…

well, i'm at work. that is about all i can say about my life right now. at some point in time my work life became the wasc accreditation. i don't know how this happened. my boss went on vacation, and wasc took over. first it was that i didn't have a unix password for sjsu. so, for the past 2 weeks or so, i've been trying to get access. this attempt to get access eventually turned into me filing a personal complaint with hr against the unix administrator. i have never in my life wanted to … [Read more...]

the friday five

1. What's the most daring thing you've ever done? me daring? hmm. i have friends who say that having a blog is daring. so, i'm going to say that is the most daring thing i have ever done. 2. What one thing would you like to try that your mother/friend/significant other would never approve of? are you serious? you think i'm going to write that in my blog? i think not. aks another question. 3. On a scale of 1-10, what's your risk factor? (1=never take risks, 10=it's a lifestyle) my risk … [Read more...]


so, i didn't tell you how bad it was... his mouth is numb. so, around his lips, his teeth, his tongue... he is talking a bit funny. he has double vision in his right eye... four fingers on his right hand are numb, but he can move them. he is walking a bit crooked, and is refusing most help. we were lucky. my uncle sig had a massive stroke in his early 40's. he completely lost the use of the right side of his body. he couldn't speak, walk or care for himself. he was never himself after … [Read more...]
