Holy cow!

Holy cow, it's been a while.
So much has happened,
it's beginning to pile.
No time to talk just now,
Just wanted to say Holy Cow!

Interesting quote from the Simpsons

“Romance is dead - it was acquired in a hostile takeover by Hallmark and Disney, homogenized, and sold off piece by piece.”

The "not so happy" birthday

Just an update on how the birthday went the other day. One word comes to mind - TERRIBLE!

Yes, my birthday really was terrible all the way around. I spent most of it at work; dealing with meetings and planning sessions for the implementation of the new CMS we are getting at work. It just went on and on and on; grant it my work day started at 4:30am wednesday morning, and didn't end until 5:30pm wednesday evening. You talk about a long assed day.

Once I finally got out of work and made my way home, I was in a really bad mood and didn't really feel like doing anything. I struggled off and on all day to get ahold of April, who it turns out had an unfortunate accident with her cell phone. Phone was dropped in water or something, which explains why I couldn't get in touch with her. I ended up driving to her house, and banging on the door. Grrr.

April and I attempted to go out for dinner for my birthday, and I might have known that it would fall apart. We went to the Chili's restaurant here in town, and I must say that I was appauld by the poor service and low quality of the food. We got there, and were seated fairly quickly, and everything went to hell from there.

We sat there for more than 10 mins before anyone came over to take either drink or dinner orders, despite the fact that the waiter had walked past us repeatedly. Now, this place was no where near busy; in fact, the damn place was almost empty. So, in my estimation, there should have been no reason for us to have waited so long. We should have just walked out, and believe me, we certainly won't be going back. We won't be recommending the place to any of our friend either. Fuck Chili's and there baby back ribs too.

Anyway, after dinner I dropped April off at her place, so she could get her car and my presents. She showed up at my place with this huge chocolate chip cookie cake that said happy birthday mike. This thing is enormous; it weighs more than 5 pounds, and is about 14 inches in diameter and 3 inches thick. And sweet as hell. That cheered me up a bit, and the fact that she spent the night made it even better.

Anyway, I have things to do, so I'll write more when I feel like it. Ciao!

Happy Birthday to ME!

I would like to wish a wonderful Happy 23rd Birthday day to ME! Yep, today is my birthday. Unfortunately, the majority of it will be spent working, and that really sucks. The only good thing about that, is I am paid hourly, so the longer I work, the more money I will make. Money is always good.

I don't really have any plans for the evening. I guess I will be seeing April at some point, and maybe go to dinner, but I'm not really in the mood for much. I gotta work most of the day, and to top it off, it is pouring rain outside.

Anyway, Hopefully I will find some joy in this day, and will make it through unscathed. For now, it's back to the grind stone.

No Tears in Heaven

written by Robert S. Arnold

No tears in heaven, no sorrows given.
All will be glory in that land;
There'll be no sadness, all will be gladness,
When we shall join that happy band.

No tears (in heaven fair).
No tears, no tears up there,
Sorrow and pain will all have flown;
No tears (in heaven fair).
No tears, no tears up there;
No tears in heaven will be known.

Glory is waiting, waiting up yonder,
Where we shall spend an endless day;
With Christ our Savior, we'll be forever,
Where sorrow no more can dismay.

No tears (in heaven fair).
No tears, no tears up there,
Sorrow and pain will all have flown;
No tears (in heaven fair).
No tears, no tears up there;
No tears in heaven will be known.

Music speaks what cannot be expressed,
soothes the mind and gives it rest,
heals the heart and makes it whole,
flows from heaven to the soul.

Wow, long time no post.

It has been a long time since I have posted anything on this blog, and I thought I would post a brief update, so my few readers don't think I have completely vanished from the earth.

I have been quite busy with work, with completing a restaurant review archive, and preparing for a new CMS that we will be implementing in the coming months. Very exciting stuff, but it is also very tiring.

On the flip side, my personal life has been somewhat of a roller coaster as of late. I have been very tired, both physically and mentally, and have been struggling with a lot of different issues. I can't really get into details.

I feel like I have been in the middle of a storm, and have yet to find a way out.
I only hope I see the light soon.

More later.
