Last day in Amsterdam. Got to hang out with a good bunch of Brits that we were assisting at the show. Good people, wish I could hang out with them more.

See, the thing about the "Go Vote!" message is that it's communicated all wrong.  It's not motivating at all...and all the radio and TV messages don't help much either.  It needs something like, "Do you know who's running your government?"  It needs a draw.  If the media can do anything besides it's current proceedings, they should focus more on educating the public on the importance of voting and unbiased explanation of topics that are being voted on.

I dunno, I just never get excited about it because I never learned about it...and I know I'm not the only one in the country like this...

Outside Hotel Erwin in Venice, CA I smiled and nodded to a lady about to cross the street. As I looked away, she asked me, "You're not from around here, are you?" she said, "cause nobody smiles in this town, even at the beach."

She said it to be funny yet sarcastic, and was polite about the situation. I took it a a compliment.

...been a while [21 Sep 2010|07:22pm]
I'm being indirectly pressured into MineCraft. This guy at work was talking a lot about it today and gave me a demo of it's awesome simplicity. And now the Penny Arcade comics for the past few days finally make sense. I'm being tempted by the dark side...

On another hand, I have Starcraft II in my possession, however, I only have 2GB of space left on my computer...I NEED to find another place to store work stuff.

And Mass Effect 2 calls to me every moment of the day.


OH YEA! AND I'M MARRIED NOW!!! XD

I got Avatar: The Last Airbender "book 2" (which is actually season 2) in the mail the other day. I love that show. Wish I could be sitting at home watching it right now.

Incompetent people drive me into a rage...or rather the affect they have on my work does so. Why is it that some people CAN NOT pack something back up the way it was unpacked?! Do I have to spell out to people? ...I guess that's why they have those "For Dummies" books out there...because there are so many morons that can't perform a simple task to be courteous to others.

Which makes me also think that people need to take their fucking time with things. You know, like when you get out of the car, do you look at how you parked? It annoys me very much when people don't straighten out their vehicle to fit within a parking space. It only takes like a minute or so more to do so!

gah!

[ mood | annoyed ]

The thing about the company I work at that annoys me so much most of the time, is that the ears and mouth have no comprehension of what the hands and feet are doing.

I just read an email today that I was copied on where one sales guy was asked by a client to provide a list of hardware, software, and content going to be shown at a demo. And if I were to grade this "list," which was almost non existant, I'd give it a D. Why is it that someone who sells a product can't seem to remember technical terms for things, understand the product, and be able to follow processes to help others out?

It really annoys me when one of them asks, "Is there any demo equipment available for this date?" as their form of requesting a demo...where we have a form to fill out (requesting demo equipment, content, software, location, etc.) which then gives me a good idea of what we can provide for the demo.

I guess it's why I'm not the "Sales" type, but I can't stand how they perform their jobs. "Just gotta sell something or anything (even if it's unrealistic)" seems to be their motto at times.

Update [23 Jan 2010|05:23pm]
Been a while since an update...

I'm engaged now! I know, weird huh? It will be great after next week though because then Emily will be living in the same town as me!!!

Work is the usual, unsatisfactory... But, I will be getting a raise hopefully within the next month, so my latest financial concerns might be calmed down a bit.

Games have been good. Just got Borderlands from Gamefly, and I think Boone and I might get addicted quick. Claptrap is awesome...very GIR-like. :-p.

Xbox laser is unresponsive most of the time so my games won't load anymore, guess it's good that I have a PS3 now ;-P. And unfortunately, my Wii won't turn on either, so that is a bit disheartening. :-/.

That's about it for my update, just trying to keep a level head while juggling Emily's move here, engagement, and my job...oh yea, also going to be keeping this house after Boone moves into the one he just bought... Yay change!!! 0_o

Started getting hooked on Legends of Zork again, though in a relaxed fashion.  It's kinda nice when my action points are built up to 100 because then I can just do whatever I want with them, and then come back a few days later and be easy going again...instead of fretting over almost dying when I can get just one more action point out before heading to base.

Fun though.  The clans thing is fun as well.  Request to join clan Mechdyne and we can hook you up with weapons...we're working on stockpiling some good ones (you can have a clan armory).  Only thing I wish you could do is set your group quests for clan mode...so everyone in the clan can go on one quest after the other...instead of having to continually rebuild and reinvite everyone to a quest after each one ends.

The Double Fanucci thing really kicks ass.  Play around with it for a bit by adding cards, then going to your inventory to check out how your attack and defense ratings are affected.

Anywho, guess that's enough of me talking about that.


Time to go home and relax now...

The "S" is for sucks. [23 Oct 2009|09:41pm]
[ mood | exhausted ]

Houston seems like paradise when I get out of the convention center after spending like 13 hours there trying to make technology cooperate (troubleshooting, fixing, seemingly fixing, cursing, troubleshooting some more, etc...); after dealing with know-it-all sales guys; after dealing with a VP that thinks he can troubleshoot things his way and not just follow the advice of others first; troubleshooting multiple technologies at the same time...  such a pain.  It's the second day, one and a half more days till the show opens, and I have about the same amount of work to do until then...

The "S" is also for stress...

No words can explain how much I hate my job right this very moment.

Actually, I think words could...only they'd be written in a novel that no one could read, for if they did, their soul would cry.

[ mood | amused ]

So I really want to buy Batman: Arkham Asylum and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2  ...or at least have the game long enough to play.  I'm tempted to sell some old games i don't play or take favor in playing anymore.   ...especially since a PS3 is now $300.

But to temporarily quench my thirst for gamage, I purchased a game over Xbox Live Arcade called Shadow Complex.  The trial for the game amazed me so much that I couldn't resist getting it.

Argh. 

Why must my job be such an effing pain?  About a month ago my Boss got together with me over dinner and was asking me some questions as sort of a mid year review.  One of them was "When have you felt unmotivated in your job lately?" so I named off a number of moments when it was crazy stressful.  Another was "When have you felt motivated in your job?"...I actually answered "um...". 

Each day I am in this job, I hate it more and more, and each day I feel closer to quitting because it's so damn stressful to me.  No matter how hard I work to keep it from being stressful, someone always goes and messes it up one way or another.  And no matter how hard I work at it, I don't see a lot of benefit. 

Lately I've been staying late to help work on something I'm actually interested in and enjoy, however yesterday, and I'm feeling each day now for the next month or two, it's going to get too busy for me to do that. 

I think my immune system is starting to get affected...that or it's my imagination...but I'm just so tired each morning, no matter how early I go to bed.  When I was with Emily this past weekend, I'd actually wake up early, because I felt energized and stuff...free of stress...and I really felt healthy...healthier anyway.
