Same Ole' Feelin'
But that same old feeling from two weeks ago is slowly creeping back into my daily routine. That, 'why the frak am I doing this shit still?' type of feeling. The vacation was awesome. On a scale of 1 to 10, this vacation ranked right up around 8, maybe a smidge above into 8.5 range (or if I was an Olympic Gymnastic Judge, it would have been a 14.225 or something of that sort).
Why wasn't it perfect?
I think the problem is that it really took me 4-5 days to slough off the past year of hard work and putting up with people's problems. By the time I was feeling relieved, we were getting ready to leave again! That is what IRKS me. 1 week just is not enough. 2 weeks next year - I think!
We spent a lovely week in Newport Beach, CA and I cannot say enough about it. I am not a terrible happy beach goer! I like the sand and I really liked not being connected to my reality back home as I dived head first into a few novels. BTW - Stephanie Myers Vampire series ROCKS! (I polished off the first two books on vacation - some 900 pages worth total and am now 1/2 way through the 3rd book).
Wanna see pictures?
So I came back home, rebuilt my personal system and put in new video card - now here are the specs:
- Quad Core Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz
- 4 GB of 800Mhz RAM
- 500 GB Sata II drive (MS Windows Vista Ultimate)
- 300 GB Sata II drive (Linux Flavor-of-the-Month) (Currently UBUNTU 8.04)
- Sapphire ATI 3870 PCI-e 512 MB DDR4 video adapter (rocks)
My newest gizmo (to be delivered tomorrow) is the Amazon Kindle. While I was on vacation, I had the hardest time trying to find the Stephanie Meyers books - so I thought to myself... if I had the KINDLE, I could like - browse over-the-air and purchase the book from the comfort of my jammies on the porch of my beach house! WTF? Why didn't I think of that to begin with?
So, I will be making mine the KINDLE very shortly!
Well - back to work - write more later!
