oh yeah… work… missing it is the GOOD thing about being away… “well i wouldn’t say i’ve exactly been missing it Bob”… heh… what a funny movie… well… yeah… i’m back… and i’m slightly less motivated…

what? Thanksgiving? this week?…. eep…

peace… love… bdg…

so last day away…. hip hip hooray… ahh well… i have enjoyed the conference for the most part… but i never like being away from the family… and i just feel so beat… and it seems i managed to get a cut beneath one of my fingernails… that’s annoying… well, the herds have thinned out quite a bit… so i have an outlet all to myself… also, the weather has finally broken down to the temperature range i was looking forward to… and it snowed…

so last night was kind of fun… we all went to the Utah Olympic oval (http://www.utaholympicoval.com/home.html) and there was food and dancing and merriment for all… i even bungee jumped… but not in the traditional sense of plummeting several stories to the ground… this was called aerial bungee jumping… i was strapped into this device and i pretty much jumped up and down and did flips and stuff… probably about 35 feet off the ground or so, but it was fun… quite a workout though… anyway… we got back late and got to bed later and here i am with a good 13 hours before i touch back down in my home state…  tired… i also didn’t get a lot accomplished that i had hoped to…  so all this exhaustion and not a whole lot to show for it…

well.. i’ve got just a little bit left to go… and i think i’ll grab a nice little walk out in the near-freezing temperatures… w00t!

peace… love… bdg…

you probably want me to fill out one of those surveys that are floating around… pah… not gonna happen… way too much effort…

anyway… so i’m sitting here on the floor by the main entrance to the convention center… i’m watching people walk by and through, but more importantly charging my laptop battery… it’s quite amusing to walk up and down the hallways… and see all the developers etc.  huddled around available outlets like they were campfires and it was 20 degrees… actually i wish it was colder… i’m entirely disappointed by this weather… it’s been in the upper 40s and 50s this whole time… how about some of that there snow weather, eh folks? 

anyway… my new iPod has been quite the ice breaker… here i was assuming that pretty much every techie has one of these… and instead i’m swarmed upon like a rockstar (specifically Mark Stuart? LoL)… flooded with questions and jealous admirers… heh… for once i’m ahead of the game… hey, someones walking on the roof across the street… 72% back up to speed… the charge is getting there… i think that the extensive scanning fo the WAPs is draining the battery… it lasts a lot longer than this at home…  oh well the brick wall is cool on my back… if only my neck would stop hurting… maybe bobbing my head to the beat will help… LoL…

well… i should get to getting…

i am right here…  exactly where God put me…  i am here for a reason…  this is where i belong… now… i must stop wishing i was elsewhere… thinking things could be better… thinking… if only… pah!  this is what i’m here for…

so it seems God has a plan after all… *surprise*… i was all bummed that the house we ended up buying really wasn’t closer to where i work… and now as it seems… there is a chance that my office may be moving closer to my new house…  odd… anyway… that, i suppose brings me to the next dilemma…

how much longer can i do this… how much longer can i stand to work in this environment… i mean… well i won’t get into too many details, but fundamentally, i do not agree with this entire organization… or disorganization as the case may be… it’s so frustrating… i actually was looking at job listings today… i did laugh at least once today though, and that was when i passed the little poster that displays our “core values”… respect, integrity, unity, and stewardship… yeah… that’s funny… in a sad way…

anyway… why can’t i get this !Hero thing written?  i guess i’m just nervous, having never written a concert review… bah!

Ghost in the Machine
So i have a 3CD changer in my bedroom and it gets use maybe once a week as i’m getting ready to go somewhere or whatever… anyway, i’ve had the dcTalk solo CDs in there pretty much since they came out… well the other day i turned the player on and it was set to disc 3… (which i believed to be Tait’s Empty) so i figured why not, and pushed play… i was immediately assaulted by 4 thumps and the words… “You keep me spinning around…” i quickly snatched up the remote and resolved the issue… apparently my wife uses that CD player more than i do… peace… love… bdg…

so i’d love to take a nap right about now…

um… my snapple cap says that the US Coast Guard has trained pigeons to spot people lost at sea… but i really don’t see what a pigeon is gonna do… if a pigeon happens across someone in the middle of the sea… it obviously can’t carry that person to safety… is it some sort of coo-ing code like lassie… i don’t know but i suppose i should focus on something i don’t know more real…

peace… love… bdg…
