Confession: There are so many specific things I want to respond to since I last posted in this thread that it's giving me a sort of mild anxiety. I feel like I can't keep up.

Confession: I spent all day today trying to forget the world and a specific girl in particular by not leaving my apartment and turning AIM off. It seems like the only thing that ended up forgotten was me.

I've stopped even trying to read everything that I miss. I attempt to gather the highlights and move on.

You tried to forget the world and the only thing you forgot was yourself? Or that the world and your girl forgot you?

The rest of the world forgot me. I did this on Wednesday too and not even my close friends called to see where I was either time.

Family called on my birthday on Monday. That's the last time any of my friends called me. I did Survivor night on Thursday for a bit, but that's been "it" for this week.

This makes it 240 posts in the space of a week, that's an average of...christ, 34 posts a day. Still, each one has been rife with wisdom and entirely worthy of existence.

I'm kindof amazed I've posted so little. I really don't get into conversation terribly heavily around here. I really enjoy reading others' converstions, however, and have been known to spend hours lurking. I try not to post, however, unless I have something insightful or meaningful to say.

That is, when I'm not taking time to tell Cara she's hot.

Ok, I can understand the conflict with mental images bit, but this I do not get.

Anyway, I like to have faces for the names, it brings a sense of reality to proceedings, of course it's that very reality which many make efforts to avoid by creating an online persona.

As I've said before, I have some problems with talking about certain things to people IRL. This problem (in a lesser form) extends to knowing how people look. I don't know why, but I feel more closed off when talking to people I can picture in my head.

Ah, so this way you can console yourself with the notion that living breathing human beings aren't actually reading what you write. My reasoning for taking the opposite course of action is the complete opposite to this. It all makes sense, though, it just depends on one's motivations for being here, I guess.

I didn't say I wanted to get drunk in the most efficient way possible. I just said i wanted a margarita. A mango one. We have this really good mix that's not too sweet.

Confession: I will be later going to the library to download a Japanese drama from several different computers so that I can fool the MegaUpload.com into thinking I'm different people. It will take hours, but it will be worth it, becuase the drama has matsumoto jun in it.

As well as the plot sounds interesting--the Japanese government collapses after some sort of specialized explosion leaves all the adults dead, so naturally the kids take over. ....*shudder* I don't know if I'd want Jun running a country <_<

I spent the last two hours cleaning out my wardrobe and I collected two refuse bags worth of clothes for donation, and yet there doesn't seem to be any space freed. This does not make sense. I need a physicist, now!

Confession: I just bought my dad a bottle of twenty-year-old single malt Scotch (Scapa). Oh no!

The thing is, it's his fiftieth birthday today and I'm leaving for the party in about two hours and I get him a bottle of Scotch every year. Granted, when I asked him whether there was anything he wanted, he wasn't very helpful (he's one of those annoying people who has everything already), but I still feel like I'm a bad son for being so apathetic and uncreative. The fact that he neither expects nor particularly wants anything more from me doesn't make me feel much better about myself.

There there.

Feel better now?

<edit> : because I'm not really so callous. I am the exact same with my parents, they want for nothing and so at birthdays and christmas it becomes a frightful challenge to think of something thoughtful and heart warming with which to present them...more often than not I default to something practical, consoling myself that it'll at least be of some use...as cliche as it may sound, it really is the thought that counts, and your presence on the day will be present enough.

He'll appreciate it, but it isn't thoughtful if I'm already his single greatest source of Scotch.
As I mentioned, he's very difficult to shop for. I might have had a chance of not feeling cheap&easy if I had tried something personalized and hand-made, but I'm not very artsy-craftsy, he has extremely refined tastes, and he doesn't much go for sentimental touchy-feely bullshit -- his words, not mine. I think I was doomed from the outset, so I'll get over it.

You too!?

I'm still on the couch in the bundle of blankets I fell asleep on last night, watching TBS. I'm gonna have to change the channel and maybe actually start my day in 30 minutes though. I have no desire to watch miss congeniality.

Goals for today:

1. stop sulking and stop going insane and stop feeling sorry for myself (all lumped together)
2. do my laundry
3. spend absolutely no money
4. work out?

that's a good start.

My goal for today was to clean off the computer desk. Seriously, it's a disaster zone in there. But I can't do it if my brother (who has absolutely nothing to do with why it's so dirty and cluttered) doesn't get off the computer...

Please note MegaUpload and alot of upload services log your IP address, the library will very most likely have all their computers going through 1 IP address.
Better option is: If you have a dynamic IP address (Changes every time you reconect to Isp. If you got standard internet connection, its extremely likely its dynamic), just disconnect and reconnect the internet after one download.
Other option is finding proxies to use... but there slow and difficult to deal with.

I recently started using shareminer, which is merely google but it adds parts of searches that show up websites that put up rapidshare/megaupload/etc links. Sometimes comes up with decent results.

Edit: Also i get over 1mb/s off most upload services at uni. Ah gota love their OC3 line (I've managed 9mbyte/s average down before)
