Fiona and me in the snow

(no subject)

So why do I always start my entries and some emails with the word so? Doing things that way isn't even close to gramatically correct and it doesn't mak that much sense. Oh well, this is my journal, and when I post, I can write whatever, however, and whenever I want :).

I'm a bit less than a week from my trip to SLC and beyond, and I'm looking forward to it. I think I've figured out what is causing my elbow pain so much, and I think it's mostly due to the fact that my computer is so much higher than I am sitting. Since I'm freakin short, I have to have my chairs up pretty high, and this chair that I have here a work just isn't high enough. It's comfortable, but it tends to strain my arm, and by the end of the day, especially when I'm drawing on my huge Tablet, my arm's killin me.

I did in fact find a ride to the campout, and I really had a good time and met lots of people. Oh yeah, did I mention I stayed awake way too long, lost track of time and place while chating. I also drank too much root beer, and told too many blind jokes. Overall, it was a good time, and now I know more of the young people who live around here. I didn't get too much flack for being a Razorback fan, but it did slightly intensify with their loss to Kentucky. These are good people who live here in Rocky Top land, they're just deluded and confused, and their team's most popular song isn't even their fight song.

I've been working on a sulfur recovery plant simulation, and it's finally done. It was very simple in design, but extremely comlicated in it's layout, so it took me a while to figure out how I was going to plumb everything properly without (a) going crazy, crazier than I am and (b) connecting something so improperly that it might end the real world as we know it if built.

I'm fully moved into the new place, and though it's still not fully organized, I think it's better. I'm still having problems keeping Fiona under control there as she likes to eat the at food that's left out, and especially loves cat litter. I'm not sure how to keep her out of it except for getting some kind of shockin system, but it's definitely annoying because I have to watch her constantly. Just like a little kid, I have to worry when she's being very quiet. She knows she's not supposed to do that, but she'll do it until I catch her, and then she stays in one place for a while before she does it again.

I was talking with one of the guys I work with about issues I've continued having in understanding and being confused by women. This isn't a new problem, it happens with me, and has happened since the dawn of time, but we were talking about it for some reason, and he told me I had to read something. I thought it apt to post it here. So so true!

That's all I can think of to write now. I don't have much planned tonight except for a hot shower, relaxation, and going to the store to get some things. More soon.
