I not so much depressed as I am introverted. When I get into a group of people, I feel like sliding away. I've had this problem since I was little; my sister would be outside climbing trees with her friends, while I'd stay inside and draw pictures or read books.

Truth be told Flick, I'd love to come play frisbee. I also adore Canada; it's beautiful up there. Thanks for making me feel better, you guys.

Aw, Mac_Doll. Have no fear. I haven't forgotten about you, babe. It's just that my life is running 180 miles a minute right now (at both work and home) that it's hard to know which way is up!

I literally have to find creative ways lately to "wind down" at the end of the day or else I get a terrible night's sleep. The last couple of nights have been better, but even still I go to sleep and wake up with work on the brain.

For those of you not in the know, we have about $200,000 worth of audio-video equipment being installed at work and I'm our organization's project manager. At any given moment I'm working with two different contractors and several of our staff to make sure it gets done right. What makes it overly complicated is that we're integrating a bunch of our existing "old" equipment with the new stuff all the while trying to keep our government-access cable TV channel on the air.

This is the first time I think I've been able to check or post to the boards, while at work, in a couple of days.

Mac_Doll, your PM has more.

I've never been to Canada. Sadly, I can not go for the stampede. I have summer school. It's lame but at least it lets me take the classes that I want to next year.

Mac_Doll, in those pictures, you remind me of a couple of my friends. I haven't seen them in about a month, and I probably won't see them until school starts again. I just hate that.

Thanks, dear. I know you're stressed and busy; that's how I decided on your birthday gift. Honestly, the fact you admitted you've had to find creative ways to relax lately is one heck of a coincidence.

maimezvous: Aw, thanks! I remember those days. It sucked. The last time I saw my friends was during college.

Honestly, there are 2 key facts here that most girls ignore;

1: In movies and TV people have hours of makeup, hair, all kinds of special...ehem...enhancing garments, surgery, favorable lighting, and the "blur" that is caused by the SDTV resolution (this is a real issue in the news and local/regional programming biz, HD freaks them out because they dont have all of the tweaks availible to hollywoods A-list) AND PRINT just ask a Photoshop pro what can be done to make the ugly hot...

2: Contrary to the rags that call themselves "ladies magazines" (most) guys dont like the super thin 110LB anarexic type, that isnt healthy...a little shapliness can be good...skeletons wrapped in skin are not as hot as they are made out to be.

I miss snow like that. It snows here in Indiana, but we don't get the real stuff. Just ice rain and a thin powder. I used to live in the foothills of the Rockies. That was some good snow.

a_greer, I'm well aware of those things. I like my curves. I should still lose about 20 pounds so I can show my natural hourglass figure better. That, and so I can lose the back pain.

Yeah I love it up here, meaning Calgary Alberta Canada. I'm 45 mins from the rockie and even less than that to go to some of the best mountain biking in the world.

We ahd a fairly good winter as far as snow goes this year but I fear that powder days are getting more and more rare.

Mac_Doll, go get that hour glass back

do you folks Ski, board or bike?

I wasnt speaking of you; I was making a general statment about a lot of girls who seem caught up in in superficial... It is something I see the evidence of every day (hell, just walk a mall, you cant miss it.) Back pain not withstanding; I have yet to run into a girl who doesnt mention that they "need to lose weight" no matter what size they are...

With all of this obsession with "loosing weight" it seems like the only folks not (at least outwardly) concerned about their health and looks are the ones who really should be...the ones who litterally have fat rolls dripping off of the sides of a chair when they sit down...

Society is so odd in some respects...

Obviously a newcomer to our "fine" state...last 2 winters have been reallllly tame...this winter will be a doozy, 2 mild winters...really mild summer...If, at some point, this coming winter, there isnt two or more feet of snow on the grownd for the better part of a week, 3-4 times...I will eat my figurative hat.

I want to lose weight for health reasons as well; it'll be less stress on my body frame and feet. My family history also puts me at risk of diabetes and heart disease. If I can lose some weight, the risk will be greatly lowered.

Flick: I like to bike, and I'd love to rollerblade; haven't done it in years.

Did you mean Souperman? No, I haven't seen it yet. I might go tonight.

Flick, I used to do all of those things, but now I live in Indiana and there are only corn and soybean fields here. My mountain bike is almost useless.

Speaking of hourglass...

I saw THIS beauty the other day and made her my desktop picture. Too bad it is a little blurry or I could have really zoomed in.

The ONLY cool thing about living here is the Indy Motor Speedway, I have been to one Nascar race and would have been going to the F1 US Grand Prix this weekend if I could have secured a decent job in the last month and a half...Living about 45 minutes away is kinda cool, except I have never acctually watched an Indy 500, the Indy ABC is requiered to black it out, so they show it live from tape at 7PM, opposite the Coke 600...I already know the outcome by then and lets face it, Nascar crashes are just plain cool...

For the record: I was born into this craphole; FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, DONT COME HERE!!!

Haha. Yeah, Indiana isn't that interesting. I ended up moving here because my grandparents live here, and my mother wanted to live near family, and she was also able to get a job on Purdue campus. I don't mind Indiana for now. I think as soon as I can, I will move to Washington state. I love it there.

As for the Indy 500, it definitly is one of the greatest reasons to live here. I have gone for the past four years. It is amazing. I've never watched a Nascar race before. I'll probably do that sometime.

Happy Birthday CosmoNut.

I've been spending every ounce of free time on a PHP project.

That and caring for an ailing cat, planning a trip to LA in a few days, signing up for summer school (blah), and general around-the-houseries.

I check in now and then, but there was a time I had to log out of AI to keep from getting distracted.

Let's put it this way: the sooner I'm out of this job, the better I'll be. I hardly eat right, and I get more frequent headaches; I have one right now. I want out of food service for good.
