I can already feel my quads hurting.

Tomorrow is going to suck.

Dunn’s Famous Letdown

Saturday, January 22nd, 2011

I guess we got over excited by the news and missed the details; we drove / skytrained / walked to downtown to eat cheesecake and smoked meat at Vancouver’s new import and Montreal’s classic Dunn’s Famous Restaurant.

It just isn’t open yet. DOH!!

MEC cashiers are weird

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

Maybe its just me, perpetual bad luck, but the cashiers at MEC are the strangest people in the city.

Bohemian and hippie is fine, but maybe try looking me in the eye? Or saying “hi”? Or try having the least little bit of social skills might help. What’s wrong with you freaks??

Repetition is the key to success

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

Actually no, doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results is insanity.

I just question some people’s success, watching them do stupid things over and over while succeeding is interesting to me. I imagine they’d be wickedly successful if they applied brains to what they were doing.

Fax machines – who still uses these stupid things?

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

Quote of the day from some ppl on Reddit, the sentiment of which I agree with wholly:

Order a pizza online = Secure encrypted SSL certificate HTTPS page, authenticating against the digital Fort Knox of Visa’s card database.

Buy a half million dollar house = some sixty five year old lady hand writes on a piece of paper and faxes it across a copper phone line to a another fax machine, where it sits on top until the next one comes in and they both fall on the floor. The clean lady has even odds of touching it before the loan officer.

Nice.

 

 

Do it or don’t.

Sofaking Bored of this Internets

Wednesday, August 18th, 2010

I could so easily toss all this technology aside for the simple life. If only it were possible.

I could do away with the instant access to emails and info.  I could do without the GPS and maps (I’d miss that, but I could do without easily).  I could do without the mobile Facebook and Twitter and SMS and web browsing and laptops and computers and giving a shit about Android vs Apple vs Blackberry vs Symbian vs Windows.  Why do I even give a crap? I don’t know anymore.

Seriously, what freaking difference will it make in the end when I look back at my life and think about all the great and not great things that happened? Like this stupid smartphone war will even matter! What a waste of time. I’m done thinking about it, I’m done, I don’t care any more! They’re all great and all crappy and all have awesome and shitty things. In the end none of their successes or failures will make me a billionaire, or make my kid better able to handle life as an independent human being, or cause me to look back on my deathbed and think “wow I’m so glad so-and-so company’s system won out in the end!”

I need to rethink my position on the stuff that doesn’t matter. Not just smartphones or HP vs Dell or trying in vain to convince this customer to pick this application instead of the other, who the hell cares as long as I get my hourly rate paid.

If I had a second marketable skill I’d give up this IT consulting in a heartbeat. I really envy my buddy Brent who runs a truck maintenance company. He’s disconnected from the net (well far more than me anyways), happy as stink with his old Blackberry Pearl, he’s outside all the time, lives in the middle of bumfuck nowhere in the middle of cornfields.

If I could snap my fingers and change my life, I’d live up North in BC or Whitehorse and run an outdoor excursion company. I’d take Europeans on canoe trips, river rafting trips, hikes, snowmobile outings, cross country ski trips, you name it. I’d be surrounded by awesome outdoor gear, my spare time would be spent fixing it all, messing around with new stuff, staring at maps and planning new routes. Sigh.

More of this, please.

Oil well capped – God responsible, says Gov.

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

So its great that the leaking well is capped, for how long we don’t know but hopefully this puts an end to this shit.

“That’s great. I think a lot of prayers were answered today,” said Riley.

That’s Alabama Governer Bob Riley, by the way.

Prayers?

Listen you idiot hillbilly, if God had anything to do with this AT ALL … ugh, nevermind.  I can’t stand it when religious people blame or thank this “God” for anything.
