The Colinas sent me a Blinky the Three-eyed fish Squishy-toy as a swell thank you for the Doctor Who eps. Hey, there was one on last night! I have to remember to yank it down.
Blinky has a super squishy body, sparkle-infested goo interior. The girls at the club gave him more love than any mutant fish could hope for.. Amy took him on stage and sang him a ( Collapse )
Why yes, it was a slow day at the club, and the help is allowed to drink on the job. Why do you ask, dear journal?
Suzie wanted to keep him, and was willing to user her feminine wiles to get him, but nopey-nope. MP very likely could've convinced me. I love Blinky to bits, and he's coming with me to work...I don't want Newt to bite and let him bleed stretchy-ooze when I'm not at home.
Dan got to meet the gang, and he was duly impressed at the sheer niceness of the crew there. The only negative was that it was rather smoky today. He had to flit off at 4:30 to go on his weekly Saturday night date with the Missus, but at least he got to do a passing hello to the folks there.
Before going to the club, we got some sushi (Blinky was in the car, I should've brought him in to visit there, too), and wandered toys r us... the batman movie toy stuff is out in full force, and the PSP looks really cool. the day it gets a good touchscreen and pda/wifi net-surfing utility is the day I buy one. (which means probably next year.) Super-soaker technology has gone through the roof.
After 6:30ish, Mp and I went out. First for her to get a manicure/pedicure (I was tempted but passed on one for myself), and then for Pizza - She's for pineapple, too.
MP will be back in South Florida briefly the weekend of the 18th of this month. We have already made plans to get together.
Sometimes I look back and wonder how things unfolded this way. Not regrets, but just wondering what set me on a given patch of land.
I didn't really get into any extended romantic relationships with women until I hit about 30 or so. not sure what in my brain clicked over to cause it to work that much better, but there you go. High school and college and the period right after had me focusing on opportunities that weren't meant to be.
If I wasn't a gamer / computer guy, where would I be right now, both professionally and socially? Would I be married? Divorced? Have a Kid? Would I be a homeowner? Homeless? Dead? If not, what would I be doing with my life? Who would I have met, and what would I have learned from knowing them?
Who knows... doesn't really matter in the long run. I am where I am. Not too bad, all told. I've got a few good friends, a place to live, am able to clean and feed myself... Strong physically, mentally and emotionally. Very few serious defects. I can read books and hear music of any kind anytime I want. I can contribute to society without taking too much away.

Silly interactive meme -
- Think of the first word that comes to mind when you think of me.
- Run a google image search on that word.
- Reply to this entry & post one of the pictures from your search, but don't tell me what the word was.
- Put this in your journal, so I can do the same.
I can't recall the last time I was on a swing set at the park / beach.
Doug Wu was the last person that said "Sockamagee" to me aloud. Dial "D" for Doug.
Shaq still owes me a couple of bucks for Steel
Many links because I've been reading more than I've been writing. Still haven't started the running man story properly. I'm likely going to be late, and Bruce and Mollie will rightfully point the tardy-finger at me. Deadline issues. Maybe not. Everyone in the writing group has been getting smooch-time lately.
What does this mean??

Probably the next overplayed video thing.
The following is based on rumors, allegations and hearsay, which is good enough for me. (at the moment.)

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I say to myself
