Well – I went for my third ride today. I’m training for a 111 mile bike ride in november for the leukiema and lymphomia society. “Team in Training”:http://teamintraining.com/ anyone can join, and it’s not too late. Great cause, great way to get in better shape.
It was a tough ride towards the end – some of which I attribute to almost passing out from lack of fuel.
I can’t believe they got away with this garbage! All night (when I keep going back to mtv) they talk about overdrive. I decided to see how streaming video has come along. I can’t be more amazed…
Well, it’s over.
I have liked this show since the first episode (the one with the creepy ads for undertaker supplies), and am VERY sad to see it go.
—————- Spoiler Warning —————–
I felt like Ted was a bit of Deus Ex Machinia – but other then that, I think Alan Ball did a great job of finishing it off. I had a feeling that he would do the white screen for everybody, so we’d know when they died. I didn’t expect them to show HOW each died. I thought it was a bit forced, but really touching.
Enough critisim – I LOVED the episode. I loved the show. I would like to buy them all on DVD and show my kids one day.
It also left me feeling like I was somehow special or lucky to have seen the whole series from start to finish – a feeling that was fleeting with CSI, and I did have when I watched all of Twin Peaks back to back on tape back in ’99 or so.
Thank you HBO, Thank you Alan Ball, and Thank you Cast, Crew, guest writters and guest directors for making one of the best television shows of all time.
I’m installing Raphsody (it is free with comcast), and it has a really annoying UI element during installation. it was going along fine, until at 84%, it said “Downloading and installing components” and stuck there.
It seems to me that if it has taken about 1 minute to do what looks like 10% of a progress bar, the last 1/10th shouldn’t take an hour. If some sub elements are out of control of the main thread, launch new progress bars for those sub installers / downloaders.
Well, the Party’s over – the pity party that is.
Let’s take a look at what I have to be thankful for.
Health, Family, Friends, someone to share my home and life with, Pets, a good job… etc etc. I really have no right to complain!
Sorry about the last post.
Well, today is my birthday (turns out 8/10 is my birthday every year.)
No one called me at midnight, my g/f didn’t wish me a happy when I got back from the dog park, none of my friends at work have said anything.
It’s petty to be upset, but the only thing I want each year is to be remembered and acknowledged.
I am not where I wanted to be in life – I’m 28, I work in a job that doesn’t impact the world, I’m not a millionaire (I was supposed to be at 19 – NINE years ago).
I’m pretty down in the dumps today.
if it’s any consolation, it is a beautiful day today – all my family is alive and healthy and I am as well. And I have a dog.
Also, don’t spammers know its your birthday? I just want a day off from everything, work, the dog, the whole of life.
So, to review – happy for what I have, disappointed in myself for not having more.
