good morning vietnam.
aw hell, and america while im at it. we had a war movie marathon lastnight, that was zacs choice, next week i get to pick the theme. you know theres alot of digital watches in saving private ryan?
this is my first journal entry for 2003. this might be a more momentus occasion if i had more than 3 entries in 2002.
now backtracking...whats happened since i last successfully logged in? christmas happened. i got a puppy! one fourth of you already know this. i called him max, because hes mad. and nick wanted to call him maxamillion. roomates should get a say in the matter i feel. hell be looking after him just as much as me, i feel. hah.
im a pretty lucky guy...i cant complain about anything i ever recieve. my friends always seem to know what i want, it amazes me because im not even sure what i want! someone else bought me bass strings, good thinking! i got some books and some cds too. all ones that i wanted...i dont think im really one to hint or beg but someone everyone knows. i feel special.
i didnt visit my family, this is the first time in quite a few years. no hard feelings, they said, they are proud of me and understand why i cannot make it they said.
score, i said. was that insensitive? you bet yer ass. tomorrow im driving walt to minnesota so on the way back im going to stop in and visit my mom, hand out some belated gifts. im not calling ahead either. if she knows im coming she'll make a big fuss and guilt me when i cant stay long, she'll clean the whole house and bake and clean out my old room and tell me i should stay the night, talk to my sister, be a part of the family again. it would be nothing but hassle and high blood pressure and disapointment.
but if i show up un announced she might just smile. no matter if im there for 5 minutes or a week. i like the way my mom works at times. if ive got time i might visit my dad. you have to call ahead there. its been along time, i dont know what the visiting hours are anymore.
new years happened to. this is the last time ill point out the obvious sorry. hah. we went out, saw a band, we tried to sit in the park until midnight but it was too cold. i talked to cheryn alot. shes beautiful and funny, just like every other woman ive dated, so i resolved to concentrate on more important things this year, and give my love life a rest. it hasnt really been that busy but it needs time to sort its self out.
time to hit the showers, another long day ahead of me. i think all i have to do is finish some items, once someone decides how they want it finished. otherwise its getting beeswaxed and i dont care when you cant stain it later because i want to knock off early and take max to the vet.
bye for now. may you all have a prosperous year.
