Going Stir Crazy!

Retirement is not an option.

Well, it finally happened, my job officially ended Fri at 6pm. It is now Sun night and I’m already feeling the adverse effects. It’s weird, I knew I that would have a hard time with going from a 60+ hour work week to sitting around the house with all the time in the world, it would take some adjusting. I just didn’t think it would be this tough!

There are so many things I wanted to do before finding another job, but I can’t seem to get myself motivated enough to do anything. Is it depression? Or just laziness? It feels like laziness, but then again, it doesn’t. I have a million things going through my mind, I just can’t seem to get them organized into a game plan. Lack of focus maybe? That’s a possibility. When you have a paycheck coming in, it’s easy to excuse yourself for not spending your time wisely, you don’t really need to focus or justify yourself. When you’re jobless and sitting just around, taking time for yourself and trying to contemplate your dreams seems so incredibly wrong.

Is it depression?. That feeling of worthlessness? I don’t know, I know I contribute to society, but...

I guess I’m just not sure about my life at the moment and it’s a feeling I don’t feel comfortable with.

Any inspiring thoughts will be welcomed right about now!

Vacation Ideas

So! Jill and I have a "vacation" coming up and we're trying to decide on whether we want to take one together and where we may want to go. We've talked of Florida, and that seems to be the best bet so far because it will be fairly inexpensive (and we don't have much to spend, lol). But, I'm thinking, if we pull our family/friend resources, we could probably do LV or New Hampshire for just as cheap. I know we can do LV, but is it really a family kind of place? (I think yes, as long as we can keep Nat away from the tables ;o) .) NH would be cool... literally! And so, that may be out... I don't know where would be the ideal place, all I know is that after 5+ years of 60+ hours a week, I need a f*cking break!

Any other ideas?

I Was Just Thinking...

It's been over a month since I started this blog, and I still haven't had the inspiration to write anything for the website... But I sure am having a lot of fun!

I don't feel like starting anything new tonight, (chalk it up to laziness,) so I'll just share some pics and links...

On teleportation:
I thought this page was Hilarious! China will throw nuclear bombs everywhere if we don't come up with a teleportation device? Well that's one way to motivate!

On ghost:
Yep, I'm still on this kick.

Here's a good pic of Liev Schreiber. In case you still don't recognize him, he's the guy that played Cotton Weary in Scream and Scream 2.

Here I am in Convington, KY at the Art Gallery Hop.

Here’s me lopping off MM’s head...

Here’s Jill lopping off MM’s head...

Here’s Marvin the Martian lopping off...

In other news:
The butterfly has now officially outlasted the truck.
Doritos are tasty.
There’s supposedly an aurora borealis over Dayton tonight, but I can’t see it.

Thought of the Day:
Ever wonder how reliable your news source really is?

This is in direct response to...

Nevermore's rant on UFOs, Santa Claus, and whatnot. Sorry, I just couldn't resist.

In 2002, Ray L. Wallace was exposed as being the creator of the Bigfoot legend. This is one Brainiax opinion on the matter:

And after chasing down a lead on a Bigfoot sighting, our Brainiax team found this in Northern Ohio:

I think this is ample proof that Bigfoot does, indeed, exsist.

Celebrity Crushes!

I usually don't buy into the whole celebrity crush thing. If I see a face on the screen and like it, I talk about it, or if I find a good actor/actress, I'll recommend them. But I'm not the type to give out snaps if I think they're not deserved, and I'd rather pull out my toe nails one by one with a pair of rusty pliers than read a piece of "fan fic".

However, as Chrissie pointed out, I guess there are a couple/few faces that I wouldn't mind swapping spit with, even though they have no idea who I am, and vise versa. So! I'm going to share them with you in hopes that you'll be cool and share yours with me, rather than leaving me on the line here looking like a jackass.

Crush #1. Bob... (last name left off because there's a very slight chance that he may actually see this, in which case I would be mortified!) Bob is a musician with a band that I absolutely love! He's talented, cute, and from what I can tell from the few times we've spoken, he has a pretty good sense of humor. All the things you could ask for in guy! So I think this one actually qualifies as a crush crush.

Crush #2. Liev Scribbles. (Actually, I think it's pronounced Schreiber, but I have a speech impediment, so please bare with me.) He's a new one so he's still just a crush. I don't know much about him yet, but I like his face, his body, and his onscreen mannerisms. And from what I recently read on his website, he seems like a pretty nice guy.

Now, there is a whole list of cuties that I haven't cultivated a crush for yet (Jason Isaac, Tom Hanks, Colin Firth, Mel Gibson... it just goes on and on.) But those are definitely the two that are at the top of my "oh, if they only knew I exsisted" list :o)

Truly Sad News

I just found out today that a beloved member of our The Trans-Siberian Orchestra has passed away.
On Oct 30th, 2004, singer/guitarist Diamond Daryl Pediford shed his earthly bonds and went on to his heavenly home. He will be deeply missed by those of us who knew him and were touch by his music, songs and presence.
We Love You Daryl!
