Mickeyland, Moroccan Lesbians and more

It’s been a while…. such is life.

Do you have a home? I don’t think I do. I don’t think I’ve had a home in a long time. The times I did have a home… it was never for very long…. a few years maybe. I always moved. For example, I don’t consider my mom’s apartment to have been a ‘home’. I’m not sure why not…. or what criteria is used to figure it out… its just a feeling.

I’m never alone, I’m alone all the time are you at one or do you lie we live in a wheel where everyone steels but when we rise it’s like strawberry fields

So Mollie, Chelle, and I all went to the Tragic Kingdom… it was good fun… I definitly needed it… I think we all did. California Adventure definitly doesn’t suck as much as was anticipated by many…. it doesn’t live up to the hype, either. If you can get discounted tixx (like we did) I’d go for it.

What else is new…. Oh. If you are blonde, do not (I repeat, *do not*) go to Morocco. There is a very possible chance you could be kidnapped while visiting a belly dancer show by a group of lesbians. Consider this your only warning.

Oh yeah… I’m working on this program. So far its ~120 lines of C++ code.. and it all works really well! It’s not done yet, but its coming along very nicely. And its all done in a very OOP style

And there must be a way for things to get better than it was here today I damn near upset her with the way that I am the way that she wants me to be.

Forgive my breaking out into song… I’m just listening to some various tunes.

Well, I think thats all for tonight… I’m going to Dad’s for thanksgiving… its gonna be great.


the bitter entry

(If you’re not in the mood to listen to me rant, go ahead and skip this one, cuz thats all it is.)

Have you ever just wanted to tell someone “Fuck you” but you couldn’t figure out who, or why?

Ugh. The last few days have definitly had their ups and downs. Maybe this will help the crabby mood I’ve been in lately.

(In no particular order.)

My mom is gone. More appropriately, my family is gone. I didn’t even get to say bye. Missed my little brother’s birthday. What makes all this even more frustrating is that the rest of the household left to go help mom move in – and didn’t even let me know that they were going to until the night before. And “oh, you can feed the horses, right?”

Thanks. Thanks a lot. Oh, and btw, thanks, Brianna, for not letting me know you were in labor. Or Aunt Lanie. Or anyone. Cuz I didn’t care. That pissed me off… cuz you know, its so hard to knock on my door? Or for aunt Lanie to tell me as I’m walking past her? Or for someone (anyone to leave me a fscking message on my answering machine?

Nope, instead I come home to an empty house, wondering where everyone is until I call my mom, who tells me.

Then there’s work. I’ve come to the conclusion that one of my managers, Leza, is a sexist bitch. Every friday, we get a shipment of stock in. This past friday, I came in, and was told by Joe that I would be closing fish that night. And could I do this, that, and the other?

Cool. I can do that. No problem. Nothing I can’t handle.

Then Lindsey comes over. “Bill, Leza wants you to take your lunch. Then I’m going to be in fish, while you do load.”

Blank stare. “Have you ever worked in fish?”


“Have you ever even bagged a fish?”


“Do you know anything about fish at all?”

No. She wants you to tell me what I need to do to close fish, and you to work on load, after your lunch.

“Fuck. Ok, well, I guess I’m not hungry anyways, so I’m going to clock out, take off my uniform and come over and show you how things work.”

So thats what I did. At this point, I’ll mention that Leza did the same thing to me (and probably others).

So after my lunch, I clock back in, head back over to fish to finish up telling her what all needs to be done, and I get stuck over there. Thats when Leza paged me over the PA. “Bill call the office.” And she proceeded to bitch about me not working on load. And telling me I had to get out of fish.

Fine. I’m outta fish. Sorry Lindsey. I came back 10 minutes later and found 15 odd people sitting around, waiting for help. I can’t exactly walk past them all, so I take a couple customers. And a few minutes later get yelled at for being in fish.

The truly annoying part about all this is that I’m not the only one who could have done load. Or Fish. So instead of putting Holly in Fish and Lindsey on register, she did it the other way.

The real kicker was the next night. This past saturday there was close to nothing to do, and we had tons of extra people. Nothing to do except in the fish department, where I had to do all the stuff from the night before that Lindsey couldn’t, plus the stuff Joe wanted me to do that night.

So who else was there that night? Judy, Yvonne, Chelle, Holly, and Leza. At the end of the night, everyone is done, its 10 minutes til we’re outta there, I’m still running my ass off doing stuff in fish and she calls me and tells me to do the trash and fill up the cat litter bar.

“But I’ve still got this and this to do in fish.”

Oh, I don’t care, just do this now.

Thankfully, Holly and Michelle were standing right there, so they helped me do that stuff real quick.

Anyways. So it just seems to me that Leza makes guys do all the manual labor and dirty work.

Oh, and my math teacher is dumb. She thought I missed 6 days of class in a row. Then I told her to check her sheet, and she tells me today that I only missed 1. Which is still not the actual 3 days I’ve missed, but whatever. Like I said, she’s dumb.

And now I have to go to class, so I’ll add to this later. Don’t worry, the next entry tonight will be all the cool/fun/happy stuff thats happened in the past few days.

Fuck today

FSCKING WINDOWS! I had almost a whole damn journal entry up and ready to post, and then windows pops up with a fscking error: ‘You have insufficient memory to continue running mozilla.exe’ followed shortly by a blue screen of death… and then it rebooted. Nevermind that I have 768 Meg of RAM!

so I’m fscking installing linux. I’ll try again later.

McCain in 2004

Heh, how did I know Chris was going to be the only person objecting to my latest entry…

Go ahead and skip this part if you aren’t interested. Look for the italics.

Anyways, Never intended to say that Republicans and Democrats are all slime, just that the vast majority of politicians seem to be. The Greens (and I believe the Libertarians) aren’t simply because thats the whole point of their existence. For example, the Green party doesn’t take money from corporations for funding – all of it comes from individuals. This leaves little room for corruption.

To be sure, there are some very highly esteemed Republicans and Democrats notably Senator of Arizona John McCain (a republican). There’s a man who I’d vote for. I even contributed to his presidential campaign in 2000. Also another senator, who’s name I’ll have to look up later.

As far as the mathematics of voting goes… I don’t look at it that way. I see myself supporting a 3rd party candidate for one or two reasons. 1) It’s a vote of conscience. 2) In the last presidential election, the Green Party played a huge role in who got elected. Millions of votes were taken from the democratic party (for the most part). This clearly means the Democrats aren’t Democratic enough for those millions of voters, so they chose the more democratic – the Greens. This should make the democrats become more intuned with what the Green Party wants – if they don’t want Bush for 4 more years, they ought to listen a little closer to win back some Green Party votes.

No offense taken, of course. Live and let live.

the rest of you can come back now

Sorry bout that. Anyways. The wide world of me…

is rotating fairly slow.

Baby Anthony was born a few days ago; the house is fairly quiet right now (the calm before the storm) with Justin, Kristal, and Jillian out of the house.

Apple has updated their laptop product line… the iBook and the PowerBook are insanely sweet deals right now. The PB even comes with a DVD-Burner – silliness!

Mom leaves to go to Sacramento in 2 more days… not sure when I’ll get a chance to go see them in their new house… hell… between work and school, I don’t even know if I’ll get to see her before she leaves.. if you see me looking sad, thats why. I guess Lance was talking about how it was cool that I was going to move to San Marcos, cuz that way I’d be closer to him… GG had to tell him that San Marcos is only about half an hour north of San Diego… he was disappointed

ok, i’m now crying in the middle of the computer lab, so i’m going to go

begin rant

It’s election day – so if you’re the voting type don’t forget to do so! Most of you are Californians, though, and even if you do vote you’re probably not quite sure which is the lesser of two evils (lol, that one is funny) (Bill Simon or current governor Gray “Gay” Davis). Well stop worrying about it! They’re both Evil! (or at least inept) Why not look into voting for Peter Camejo (who is actually doing fairly well, despite being Green) or even Art Olivier (a write-in) if you’re feeling a little Libertarian (click on that link, the prospective Lt. Governor’s picture has him with his Ferret and their Sec of State is a B&W photo, lol).

I guess I’ll I’m trying to say is this: If you look around at politics, and all you see is scum, stop looking at just the Republicrats and start looking around; there’s other options.

End Rant


Diaryland took a nose dive last night…. we’re all better now, I think. I’m going back to bed, though.

PS: added link to mollie and amber’s diaries.. oh, and if anyone wants me to take theirs off for whatever reason, just lemme know.


Fsck yeah, math was canceled today. That’s what I’m fsckin talkin about. No kindergarten calculus teacher today!

I also found out today that my first homework in my CS237 class is due on… no… lemme quote the webpage, it’ll be funnier that way. And I do quote:


CS237, FALL 2002

Due: 11-8-02 Friday (a couple days later will be OK)

teehee! A couple days later… thats precious. He wrote the actual code for the assignment ON THE BOARD IN CLASS, and we can turn it in “a couple days later”. I love this teacher. If you ever have to take a CS class take it with Ivan Bajic.

So since math was canceled, I’ve still got a couple more hours to kill til I get to my CS class… I’ll probably try some programming stuff or something.

In the meantime, ttfn
