In the world of rising gas prices and underpowered vehicles in the affordable range, this sounds almost too good to be true:

I had two dreams the night before last (Wednesday night) that I kept meaning to talk a little about. Neither one was necesarilly nightmarish, but I wouldn’t classify either one as a good dream. The first was a work dream. There are a lot of politics about the web page here at work. I’m pretty much the only one who maintains it, but we’re on a temporary web page that’s only up until the “real” web page is finished (the real web page that’s been in progress for over two years). As a result, I don’t put a lot of time or effort into it, it is my lowest priority item, after all. I want to make a new one, even if it’s a new interim page, but I don’t feel that my work would truly be appreciated by the people who need to appreciate it, and I’ve been told, in no uncertain terms, to hold off on making a web page until I’m actually compensated beyond my normal pay. I’m more than willing to agree to this. Eventually, the “real” site will be done. Anyway, I’ve strayed away from the dream thing. I dreamt that another, worse, web page was created and I was forced to put it up in place of our current interim web site and no matter how much I argued, I was not allowed to alter this new one at all. It was not only frustrating, but a slap in the face because not only did they pay yet a third person to create this shitty page, but then they force me to put in in place. Fuck.

Dream two was a car dream. I don’t remember too many details about it, mostly I remember I took my new car and backed it into a pond by accident. From there, there was a lot of running around trying to figure out how to get it out of the pond and on the road because we were on a road trip and had just stopped at my Grandparent’s house for the night.

Oh, and I had another car dream last night too, but damned if I even remember what that one was.

Classroom Orientation

Wednesday, August 27th, 2003 | LiveJournal Archives | No Comments

I did my first classroom orientation for the semester. God I hate doing them. If they didn’t seem to have such a profound effect on the rest of the semester, then I’d be morally opposed to them. The students seem to take at least a marginal ammount of information away from them and thus seem to be happier in the lab. I flubbed this one up royally though, I totally wasn’t prepared and need to update some of my dialogues. I feel like I floundered thought it, but a couple people in there were smiling and laughing at my “jokes” so it made it a bit better. I still felt more self concious than normal. I mean I was tap dancing from foot to foot the whole time. I hate that.

Through Ice and Snow and Hail

Friday, February 28th, 2003 | LiveJournal Archives | No Comments

The weather’s been FREAKY here the last couple days, in fact, today is the first day I’ve been at work since Monday (it’s Thursday for those of you reading this in the future without the benefit archival calendars ). The University closed down at 1:30 on Monday and stayed closed for Tuesday and Wednesday. The roads were pretty much an inch of solid ice for the last two days. It wasn’t until around noon or so yesterday that the roads started to convert to slush and we stopped hearing the slip sliding sounds of cars dancing on the roads outside; so we decided to go out and get some errands done since we had a free day to do whatever we wanted.

Well, it’s back to LiveJournal. I have a really good, long time friend, that has decided to start doing a Blog, so I thought I’d get back to it so at least he’s not alone in the world (okay, so he already has more readers than me, big deal).

LiveJournal Archive – 08/22/2001

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2001 | LiveJournal Archives | No Comments

Well, crap. My week isn’t getting much better, but the optomist in me says it’s not getting much worse. It’s at least levelling out at generally crappy rather than plummeting into complete ass. If you read Rich’s journal (he’s my only friend on here at this time) you’ll notice that he bought Heather’s car. I imagine we’ll be going out to eat tonight. It’s nice to have money again, even when it comes in large part from a friend buying your crap… speaking of which… Julian still intends to buy my old cast off computer parts. Maybe I’ll get him to pick them up this weekend or something.
