Second 10-hour day in a row! By the time I left, my Notes account is set to send me everything I have to do tomorrow, to my cell phone, at intervals, just to remind me.

It's not quite eight-o'clock and I'm exhausted. With any luck at all, I'll make it to bed before midnight. Got to chat online with the wife quite a bit - between her schedule and mine, we never get to talk during the day, then next thing you know a week goes by and all we've exchanged are hello's. Its nice to get to connect. She's due here Wednesday with the kids. I know I'm going to be busy that week, because we have two, concurrent, three-day off-site conferences to support, but at least they'll be here at the end of the day when I return from work.

I don't mind meeting someone who doesn't always agree with me, or whom I may not agree with. Some of my closest friends are exact opposites of myself in my views on politics, religion, life... But I am completely done speaking to people who choose to scream ASSHOLE at me on Instant Messenger after venting their point of view, then signing off. I found it amusing, if not immature the first few times, but I seriously do not have the cycles. Please understand. I've been through hurricanes, tornado's, earthquakes, terrorists bombing my friends and am a member of the Veteran's Of Foreign Wars (VFW). A little wind and rain no longer scare me. Please, please, please contact me again when you're like, 30 and have had some life experience under your belt.

Tony is speeding towards Houston as I type on his way to evacuate close ones....and their cats:

drax0r: i'm introducing cats
EricHowton: Really?
drax0r: yeah
EricHowton: Daisy and Az?
drax0r: yes
EricHowton: How's it going?
drax0r: not very well
EricHowton: LOL
EricHowton: You must be REALLY bored.
EricHowton: What prompted this?
drax0r: because the people that are coming down this weekend fleeing houston are bringing cats as well
drax0r: so I need to be able to make 3 different cat zones
EricHowton: Uh.....
EricHowton: How many people and how many cats?
drax0r: i think 5 people and 6 cats
EricHowton: Damn dude.
drax0r: yeah
EricHowton: "Cat Zones" huh?
drax0r: yeah
drax0r: there was a little scrap between the two but i sprayed them down with the water bottle to break them up
drax0r: and now az is just kinda sitting there and daisy is growling at her
EricHowton: Geez.

OK, I opted for a glass of wine this evening. I'm going to now disassemble the Apple keyboard, clean it, and reassemble. You kids have a good night.


2135: Tony's en route - I'm 24x7 oncall as I try to navigate routes. It's like the movie Twister, only with one person left behind watching satellite & maps. My mother told me all routes on I-45 outta Houston were Northbound only. Tony's other resource confirmed with the Conroe PD that all routes were clear on his current navigation...

I've got your back Tony. You need this former intelligence puke to navigate you outta harm's way, just give me a call. I'm sure you'll be just fine.

I find it interesting and a bit ironic how you used to be one of the IM behaviorists you now openly despise and reject. Could this be a sign of increased levels of maturity, perhaps due to new-found roles and responsibilities, or maybe its just a double-standard?
...methinks its too soon to tell, but Im curious to see where it leads.

Re: Interesting...

That's too funny dude. It's different when we're six feet away! Seriously, I'm updating text in the main body of the post as I get new information...keep hitting that "Refresh" button. Replying to you, "Ass." was a joke, and you knew how to take it.

My darling husband I miss you so much. I have put the children to bed. There are no stars out tonight only clouds. I smoked a cigar and had a bit of Brandy, I plan to have a good cry and fall asleep around 2am. with a child waking me around 4am. The second week is a killer. I miss your face your hands and you know what. That soft beard of your and you know where I like it. I can't type any more to much emotion. I love you unconditionally. Your sweetheart.....

Re: No Subject

Sweetheart, with you I'll share anything. Except the Habana Montecristo I recently rec'd. Ok, I'll share that with you too, but only if you're really good! I hope you rest well Sweetheart, and that the children sleep through the night. I'm going to crash out now, to be ready when Tony calls for this former intelligence puke to navigate him out of harm's way. I love you. You've never let me down. DAMN it Tony, I keep hitting "Alt" (Mac OSX "Control" key) for copy & paste) instead. I am truly a Mac convert....

Do you REALLY need all those computers in your cube, or is it to make you feel 'special' and 'important'?

Re: no subject

Hehe...I know! To further complicate things for them, let me just mention that mine are rubbing (wearing) the same way as yours. HA!

Re: no subject

The stormtroopers are protecting teh_maxor...Dale II's rox0r! (no one else even suspects what we're referring to)

Re: no subject

So nice, you posted twice...

Re: no subject

I think that term you're is refrring to 'skinning' where two men put their cocks together and one masturbatees both...but I'm not sure, My father read it in a book sent by SomeBritInMass and he (my father) was quite confused by the entire thing.

Re: no subject

'Skinning', huh? Funny, I thought it was just called 'Jerkin'. I think that might be the street-term for it though. Maybe Tom can shed some light on this...since your dad isnt sure about it.

According to Google, they call it 'Sliffer-Whacking'... Im glad I didnt look that up in the online encyclopedia...imagine my potential horror encountering those pictures!

Re: no subject

Odd...I confirmed the term on your homepage.
