According to some polls this season, people want more time off around the holidays. I've got one of those tedious mostly desk jobs, and I can attest that I'd rather do almost anything in the world than sit at that desk doing tedious desky things day in and day out. Having more time off seems like one of those things you couldn't possibly say no to. Who doesn't want to ditch the day job and take the rest of their life off from work? More time off would be wonderful wouldn't it? Well, NO. No it wouldn't. I take 10 days off during the holiday season.
Drupal sucks. Yes.. i use it for ALL of my websites. And.. every SINGLE time I upgrade one of those sites, something stupid and pointless breaks. All because some pimply, inbred, stupid punk decided that a decent upgrade path from version 1.x to 2.x wasn't important. So every single time I upgrade, I end up having to redo something like photo galleries.. changing all the links pointing to the pics that I included in my articles.. or some other stupid shit. So.. why do I keep using Drupal? Because, as much as I hate to admit it..
My left leg seems to have mostly healed.. I'd say it's 98% as good as it used to be. My calf will still swell up the day after leg day at the gym, but it only swells slightly. It seems that I have developed a bit of a varicos vein behind my knee. It's just enough to add a little extra pressure to fluids in my left calf. However, I just ran 6 miles today and walked another 2 with no swelling at all. So I'm calling it healed.
Today will mark 4 years that Kirby has been dead. Back in the day, Kirby loved the cold weather. I hate the cold weather. He and I agreed on most things, liked most things, however cold weather was not one of them. He still somehow managed to talk me into going for walks no matter how bitter cold it was. It's 10℉ outside now and when it's this cold, I always think of him trying to convince me to go for a walk with him. Without him here, I have absolutely no motivion nor desire to go outside in the cold.
I have friends on both sides of the creation vs big bang fence. Sometimes it seems they vehemently oppose each other. I frequently find myself in the middle of a debate or feel like I'm some kind of mediater. But more often than not I can actually see the humor in it.
I'm sure I'm going to alienate some of my friends. But, the older I get the less I seem to care what people think about me... and even less if they like me.
