The BONES are forever.

It’s weird, how some choices seem so small when you make them, but end up affecting your life far more than expected. This would have been my age-out summer with the Crossmen. I didn’t do it for two reasons: I wanted to say good-bye, instead of essentially checking out in January, like in high school, and I wanted to get to Africa as soon as humanly possible.

“We are a nation of minorities and in a nation of minorities, it is important that you don’t cherry pick rights. A right is a right and that is what this vote tonight is all about.” Yay for Canada.

Today was my last day of work. Hellsyeah. One week to pack up my bags, pack away my room, and generally get ready.aracer

Tourist in our own town.

I spent Sunday acting like a goof-ball tourist in DC with my best friend. We had a great time. Sometimes, it’s just fun to let loose, be loud, obnoxious, and shallow on the metro, and be idiots taking pictures at monuments. Highlights include: Gorgeous weather. And some amazing monuments.

Around 9:30, we all realized that we’re none of us college students any more. We were fuckin’ tired. I guess that’s what real life does...

In which t kills some kittens.

Technical writing is what pays my rent. I like my job, and I like the people. I document software for a tier 1 webhosting company (we host the webhosts), so I end up doing a lot of documentation and QA while the applications are still being written and tweaked.

Things I want to do in Philly

Tour the Mutter Museum of Medical Oddities . . . six foot colon ideed. Eat a cheesesteak at Pat’s or Geno’s. Go drinking hang out on South Street. Visit Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. Good times. Good

HOW AM I GOING TO GO TWENTY-SEVEN MONTHS WITHOUT COFFEE AND CIGARETTES?!?!?!?! Okay, Carpenter, calm down. You’ve just about kicked the nicotine habit. If you can go two more weeks (OMG TWO WEEKS!?!?) without a cigarette, you’ll be FINE. It’s expensive, and good Lord, can you imagine the cost of imported cancer sticks in...
