i had a dog growing up.

he died two days ago.
our dog scruffy was put to sleep on monday afternoon.

14 years, and a month.

we would sit in front of the tv, and he'd come hop on the couch and watch cheesy shows with us. and he'd freak out whenever you grabbed any of his toys.

and he'd sit on granny's lap during her morning prayers. and he knew that on sundays, aunty pat would be coming over to hang out with him in the sitting room.

everytime i'm drunk, i become retarded and start eating a whole lot of random crap.

now i'm feeling totally (totally!) and completely fucked.
this is a paper about undirected data mining AND it is pretty fucking cool.

the sun's going down in a bit and we'll try to get a pitcher of cordon bleu de pabst before it gets too dark.
hm. i forgot to throw franz ferdinand on my ipod.

mo and i were discussing about how there are way too many cool things to do in life. therein lies the dilemma - what should we choose to be?

- captain of industry
- restauranteur
- record label owner
- music producer
- venture capitalist
- mixed media artist
- creative director at some fashion house
- photographer
- foreign affairs correspondent
- own a design consultancy
- science and technology policy
- professor
- be in a band
you know, i really need to figure this focus thing out. music seems to help me zone out and into working on things, but somehow i still jump from task to task without thinking, without finishing any one.

[ in the middle of ]
- reading about the NIH roadmap
- figuring out some business process modeling stuff
- browsing some ibm interview article
- browsing another article on our intranet
- looking for cardigans tickets online
- composing a message on mac webmail
- listening to modest mouse
- figuring out what the interns should/will work on this summer
- burning some franz ferdinand on a cd so i can play it on the stereo
- feeling mildly pissed off that my other stereo stopped working

YES - i do know that everyone else fucking feels like this too, BUT doesn't anyone find it the least bit annoying? HAAAALP! ack!

OK.

I just got

something

done - and I feel AWEsome. Wow! Major sense of accomplishment creeping up and down my spine.

It takes me forever to get me focused on anything and yet there's this remarkable feeling whenever I get things done.



I really should do this more often.
