it's been a while

Sorry to take so long to add to my blog. Things are better and worse depending on the topic and I haven't come up with sufficient motivation to explain them.

Work is great, but starting to get hard to stay entertained for more than 8 hours. I have a few different things I can work on, but I find myself getting a little restless towards the end of the day. I need to start getting into work earlier (for my own sake), so that when 6pm rolls around I've actually been there sufficiently to call it a day.

another fun night

My friend Nichole came down from SLC tonight and we got to hang out for a bit. Was really nice, we went for italian and both ordered alfredo. I can't explain how much I love fettucini alfredo. After that we dropped by my Uncle's go-cart track and raced around. That is always a fun thing to do.

My boss Mark managed to hook me up with 4 tickets to college football tomorrow, which I almost begged for after hearing from Doug that he wanted to get together and talk with Ero and I, and Ero suggested coming over to his place to watch the game. To which I suggested, lets just go to the game. :) I think they are excited, which makes me excited. Having 4 tickets and there only being the 3 of us, I spent the afternoon and early evening trying to get a hold of Amy, whom I had heard would enjoy such an event. She called me back later tonight to ask if I had been trying to call her. It's still not for certain that she can make it, and thats largely understandable due to the short notice. I am hoping she can make it, but if not, I don't think I'm going to be bothered by it at all. I suspect other events or time will make itself available for us to hang out and spend some time together eventually, if she truly is willing and wanting for it to happen.

I played some computer games for a few hours tonight too, which was nice since I've been too busy with work and real life to get much of that in this last week. I'm yawning like crazy which is a good sign, so I think I shall call it a day and conclude this blog. Hope you had a good day too. Yes, you... no one else is reading this right now are they? Heheh... later.

a bit of fun

One of my friends has recently got laryngitis, which is bad since her work involves her being on the phone 8 hours a day. She's just about completely lost her voice, and took today off. I decided to arrange a gathering and called Josh. I left work straight for SLC, after having made plans to meet Josh and Nichole at Nichole's apt. I drove us upto the UofU campus to a pizza shop called The Pie, simply the best pizza in the state. After that and a little mindless driving we decided to go bowling. We agreed we all suck at it, but it was still fun. Josh kicked our butts of course, dunno why he's so much better at bowling (and he was playing with a broken wrist).

Tomorrow will conclude my first week of work with the Daily Herald, and not that I don't feel like I'm being productive, but I'm still working on the servers getting them ready for deployment. And trying to decide the best deployment method and how to expand the current structure with minimal outages etc, while taking best advantage of the new hardware in a capacity that will get us through the next year. I guess I didn't really figure it would take this long. Hopefully I can make some better progress tomorrow.

Haven't heard from Amy again yet, and being the social retard that I am I realized I haven't asked for her phone number. I know she has called me twice and that I could still have the number on the caller id, but I think I'll wait and ask her for it properly. I'm really hoping she calls again soon. I'm hoping to get to see her and spend a little time getting to know her again.
