Randomness...

Geez, it seems like forever since I last posted. Hasn't even been a week yet, but it feels like forever. Well, not forever... that's a bit too dramatic sounding... it just feels like... well, like its been a long time. Too long. Miss ya, friend. Been gone too long. Meant to write. Yeah, meant to... but 'meant to' isn't worth much more than a sack of shit in a sugar shop. In the words of one of my favorite bands, America, singing one of my favorite songs: "I been one poor correspondent, and I've been too, too hard to find. But it doesn't mean you ain't been on my mind." Geez, I love that song.

I've started to write a few posts but never got passed the first few sentences. Or past even the brain pool of electric thought. I just have nothing to say right now. Except for, of course, that I've got nothing to say. And my brain is all mushy and full of little school-related-stress balls. Little stress balls, no-big-dealio stress balls, but lots of little balls makes cause for a bit of ADD. At least for me. These last few days in particular. I just can't focus on a task for too long of a time. Which is a pain in the ass when I really want to finish my homework and get it out of the way so I don't have to worry about it and ooooh look the Emmy's are on!

I did manage to write a 50 word fiction story last Friday. Wrote it right under the gun of this wondrous thing called a Deadline. The deadline being 4 pm, which is when I need to be clocked out at work. So I finished it, and posted it at The Wonderful Home of The 50 Word Fiction Friday Challenge, but I didn't have time to post it here. And once I got home, as it happens more often than not on a Friday, I don't want to even look at the computer. I only turned my home computer on once this weekend, and that was to update some school application stuff. And to pretend like I was actually doing homework. I had three pages worth of 'journals' to write, only three pages. And I wrote maybe three fourths of a page. But its not due until tomorrow night, so I'm all good on that front. I hope. And today I have a quiz I didn't study for, but I'll have about twenty minutes from the time I find a parking spot to the time class starts. So no prob Bob. And we still haven't covered everything in class that will be on the quiz, so as long as I pay attention in class today the quiz, which will be at the end of the class, should be no problem. Hopefully I'm over my ADD moment and oooh look its Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Arrrrrg!

I might post my 50 word fic later today. Because I'd like to keep it for posterity or whatnot. (And I might cheat and list the post date as Friday, because I am Lord of the Blog afterall). But for now, I have a meeting to go to. And before that, I have to synchronize the clock on my cell phone with the punch out clock at work so that I can set an alarm that will ring two minutes before I have to clock out. Because while the meeting is supposed to be only an hour all the guys I work with are Chatty Kathy's and the meetings always run long. Which is really a problem when I try and get my daily intake of water over and done with in the first few hours of work, because after an hour or so I'm about ready to pee out my eyeballs. Anywhoo... so now that the meeting has been moved from Tuesdays to Mondays, and they're set to start only an hour before I have to leave for school, I'll be able to leave the meeting early. Yeah! Sorry boys, gotta run, don't stop the whining on account of my absence.

See, this is why I haven't posted in a few days. All I've got is long ass ramblings that get to no point and oooh look somebody just made a fresh pot of coffee!
