An aimless feeling,
A nameless feeling;
I wish it could hold my attention.
Some people just stay in your memory,
They never leave, and it helps you believe...
New Jersey Transit (and other bus lines, I'm sure) will have to start making wider seats on their new vehicles. Too many Americans, in my part of America at least, are getting to be too big for the existing seats. It's annoying to be squashed by an oversized rider who overlaps onto one's seat; purchasing a fare entitles one to one seat, not one and a half and certainly not two. This goes for the idiots who put their bags, purses, newspapers, etc. on an otherwise-unoccupied seat as well. Let's try to make public transportation a little more pleasant, people...
There really are a lot of kiddies on MySpace, both literal kiddies and adults who continue to act like kiddies. WhEn YoU tYpE StUfF lIkE ThIs, I can only assume that you must be around fourteen years old. At least mentally. Dat goes 4 U ppl who R writing like this, 2. But enough animosity. I saw Dayglow, a band I first heard about on MySpace, last week in New York, and I liked 'em a lot. I'll probably try to catch them again in February... I finally got to see the old Pilgrim, Martin Rivas, again last night; he's also got a page up there. It was good to chat with Mart and to meet Craig, who provided accompaniment on drums. Slane is a very cozy and friendly bar/restaurant, and while I probably shouldn't have had three Guinnesses, well, I just couldn't help myself. Definitely got to visit that place again... and I've got to do Mart a solid and write a review of the last CD. And lastly, one of my favorite singer/songwriters, Aimee Mann, is on MySpace, too, and I'm going to see her live once more next week, on the 9th. Woo-hoo! I'm being accompanied to the concert by yet another MySpace denizen, Angella Ashton, and we should have a nice time. :)
Almost three years after acquiring an Amiga 3000, and then somehow killing it (or at least putting it into a deep coma), I've purchased another one. Amiable is up and running OS 3.9 smoothly, with Internet access even! AWeb isn't the most modern Web browser around, and the built-in video leaves a bit to be desired, but still, it works. I've even learned rather a bit about the operating system already. I've also pulled Isabel, my old IBM 300GL, out of retirement and successfully installed OpenBSD 3.8. Maybe I'll set aside a few hours one of these days and try again to get OpenBSD (or NetBSD) installed on the Quadra.
Haven't recorded it yet, though I plan to do that this month, but I wrote "Frendy Tucker" last Sunday morning in the laundromat. Hey, it beats watching strangers' underwear spinning around inside a dryer... What's the song about? You figure it out. ;) It's thinly veiled, I think.
:::sigh::: Valentine's Day is coming. No, I can't really refrain from thinking about it, with all the reminders around. It's still better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all... but not being a loser would be better yet. I got an E-mail from Gina last night while Marty was belting out some Ray Charles. She's doing well, and I'm glad, but I do miss her...
Ugh, almost time to head to the office. Nick and Freddy are working out well in support, though
I'm going to have to start cracking the whip regarding their punctuality (or the lack thereof). Haven't felt
quite as stressed the past few days... Tchau!
