Youth is a game of give and take:

most give it no thought and take it for granted.


note: maybe it’s “love” that is a game of give and take … or that card game
asshole” … where you pass your cards.
… I forget, I haven’t played those ones for a while.

double note: you can either be youthful or youthempty.

triple note: I try to be youthful, but sometimes I’m just youthless … especially when it comes to mechanics and electrical stuff.

quadruple note: I have more colorful memories when I look at black and white photos for some reason.


Things I’ve Seen With My Own Two Eyes #4: a tortoise wearing a turtleneck sweater.

My Cybernation Has Ended

My computer is finally fixed!

I’m quite happy:

… playing with the slinkey was getting pretty boring.


note: being offline wasn’t so bad … reading books, doing things outside, watching movies, cleaning the house, going places, trying to get a solid 30 degree celcius room temperature, watching socks grow, listening to bananas … but not taking their advice, wondering if I should buy stone furniture because it will last longer, debating if 6 dwarves would have been better than 7 … and which one wouldn’t make it into the lifeboat, and experiencing the exact moment when an icecube becomes more like a chunk or a shaving of ice.

double note: having no computer made me crazy!!! … I could be wrong; I usually am.


Today # 85

I felt human today … but I guess I didn’t really have a choice about that.


I’m going all MTV and unplugging my computer for a few days.

Actually it’s going into the shop for repairs.

I hope they find something wrong with it … because if they don’t, that would mean there is something wrong with me!

I could be wrong; I usually am.



note: see you in a few days hopefully.

double note: if I had a child, I’d call him or her “Bongo Friendee“. … I guess that’s one of the reasons why I don’t have children.


Today #84

Today should be the last day, for a while, that I have to put up with a computer working at about 20%.

 … except for the crap computer at work … I think that one will be crap forever.

A Peasant Post

yes it is my handwriting! ... I'm not so good with my feet.


note: do you get the title? … this entry won’t be getting any royalties.


notes to myself #2

In Grade 11 don’t keep asking Amy out on dates: she’s a lesbian.


I was talking to my “computer literate” friend about URLs and he was looking at me all confused.

What’s an URL?” he asked.

An URL, the address up in the top bar thingy“, I replied.

Oh!  a U-R-L“, he said.

I thought it was pronounced like the name “Earl“.

Is it just me?

note: Do computer people drink URL Grey tea?

double note: Is it Earl Gray tea in North America?

Memory Sticks



I bought a memory stick for my computer.

I think it’s broken because I can’t remember where I left it.

note: I’m waiting for “memory sticks” with accessories like: mace, stiletto knife, bottle opener, and pen light. I’m sure they are out there; I’m just too lazy to look. … Swiss Memory Sticks anybody??

double note: do memory sticks hold nail “files”?

triple note: if a memory stick jams, is it a memory stuck?






Have you ever “Googled” your name?

No, me neither.

note: I’m sure if I did, there would be a bunch of cool stuff about … a bunch of people with the same name as mine, people with similar names minus a letter or two, people with my name reversed, or obituaries about dead people.

double note: you are just way out of luck if your last name is Google: maybe there is something on page … a billion.



It’s the “o-bon” holiday in my region of Japan.

For many people it means 3 or 4 days off of work to visit the family grave and bring the spirits of the departed, in the form of a lantern flame, back to their house’s family shrine.

Most houses have a special area that contains a miniature shrine, incense holders, a few vase looking things, and assorted other shrine related paraphernalia.

The house I’m in has a little recessed space in one room for this purpose: it makes a great computer area!

When I first learned about “o-bon”, I thought I could wrangle a paid trip home to pick up my dead relatives’ spirits, bring them back to Japan, and show them my computer area.

I guess it doesn’t work that way.

I just get to work; but so does everyone else working at this company.

No-bon voyage for me, I guess.


note: I’d rather have some one leave me spirits than take mine!

double note: the above photo doesn’t have anything to do with o-bon as far as I know.



I’ve been really lost for the last few days.

My friends have abandoned me, and I seem to be wandering around aimlessly in no clear direction.

I could be close to something, but I have no idea.

Can you contact the Park Rangers at Oze National Park in Gunma, Japan for me? My laptop battery is almost dead and I’m really hungry.

I hope there is a search party looking for me.


note: everyone loves a good party, don’t they?

GPS for Children


Having children monitored with a Global Positioning Satellite System is wrong.

It would take all the fun out of “Hide and Seek”.

What next?

flat slides, merry go straights, and no touch tag!!!


note: “Where were you hiding?”

          “I was inside the horse carcass. haha!!”
