I just ran into a nice little metaphor in the book I've been reading lately and for some reason or another felt like it was the kind of thing that I should post on the internets. Amazingly enough, I don't really have anywhere else better than here to dump this shit. Anyway, here it is.

Wow. I guess I haven't been around here in a while. Everything's different. And for the frilly-er.

Anywhat, I recently nailed one of those goals I mentioned before. I got a new apartment in downtown SLC. It's actually a pretty nice place; 900 sqft., hardwood floors, front and back doors, fourth floor, and with a balcony that looks over the whole damn...

My list of goals September, 2005:

1) Get a new (used) car
2) Get a new (better paying) job
3) Get an apartment (to move out of my parents' house.)

My list of goals now:

1) Get a new (used) car (still)
2) Get a new (better paying) job (still)
3) Get a new apartment (getting thrown out of my present one.)
4) Get health...

If you're lucky, #2 and #4 can be combined.

Also, if public transit is doable from wherever you move to, you can skip #1.

So really, all you need to do is find a Job (w/ health benefits) and Apartment that are on the same bus route.

Edit: My new roommate (a pale fucker in a black cloak, holding a scythe) says you totally don't need health insurance.

Cross your fingers and think smooth thoughts for me; I have a chance to get a date. With luck, I might not fuck it up.

Remember how you always used to think I had tons of potential to not be so damn pathetic and maybe even pretty cool if I just "..."? (I still don't know what those ellipses might stand for.) Well, if you...

You know, I always thought you were cool.

Also, go watch The Tao of Steve. It's a good movie, and also has some good advice for gettin' some.

You know how I get beat at poker? When I make a perfectly reasonable bet of "all in" before the flop because I have pocket kings and great position, but the fucker behind me has way more chips anyway (won entirely on luck and being a stupid fucking "call station", by the way) AND has been dealt pocket aces.
I hate losing. And I refuse...

Next on the docket: get Life Goals..
imagoldfish:
You know, I've been thinking way to much about that comic. Here's what I think bugs me about it: that there is an implication that the two things, the jobs, marriage, etc, and the awesome get Life Goals thing, are mutually exclusive. I don't like that. I also don't like that the jobs, marriage option somehow seems like a miserable, bleary alternative. I mean, it certainly can be, if you never have Life Goals or adventures - but why can't you have both? At the same time, even?

Is your internet persona more exciting than you are in real life? Because mine sure isn't. I think my internet persona is fucking booooring. What do you think? (That means you, you nerds that for some reason still let me be listed as one of your friends.)

Hey, what was the adaptation of Guess Who? that you guys came up with? Because it's way too easy as is.

Hmmm. Maybe I have you mixed up with someone else. I seem to recall you telling me by phone that you had been playing by adapted rules - I don't remember if this involved having two people cards each, or rules about asking either/or questions, or what. I might just be out to lunch though.

It's a fascinating game in terms of logic puzzles. I've perfected the technique of asking ridiculously complicated, yet quite effective, questions that give me a lot of info but also involve keeping a lot of variables straight, like, Does your person have glasses, and/or facial hair, and/or a hat?

Lately, I've been able to find joy in very simple things. Mostly, I just consider how good my life is compared some other guy's that might be otherwise very similar, except right now THAT guy is trapped under a very large rock, or, maybe, he'll be severly beaten if he doesn't work harder. If I were THAT guy, I'd LOVE...
