Month: February 2006

that’s somewhat unsettling

I’ve worked at Microsoft for 1 year today (well, 1 year 3 months if you include that internship thing).

I can now officially quit without repaying various things. It’s a good thing to know.

Just in case.

Time for some thrilling heroics

I wake up from my dreams and think about them, looking back upon the sequence of events that unfolded overnight. “Wow,” I think, “what a random and circuitous sequence of events. So much unbelievable coincidence. Even asleep, it seems strange I could possibly believe such oddity could pass as reality.”

Today, after doing that, I stopped and thought back on my life, looking back upon the sequence of events that unfolded the past years. “Wow,” I think, “what a random and circuitous sequence of events. So much unbelievable coincidence.”

(note: while typing, I originally typed “thinked” instead of “thought”)

And while we’re on a deep, philisophical level, I also thought up these two nuggets:

1: First impressions are funny because you never know when you’re going to make one. It’s usually not the first time you meet someone.

2: It’s easiest to feel lonely when surrounded by many others.

Now I’m going to ponder the thought of one hand clapping, and some other zen crap.

Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal

Yeah, that just about says it all.

I was going down a blue and somehow fell directly onto my butt without losing balance. So, I was squatted on my skiis, butt dragging in the snow… but not slowing down. About 3/4 down the hill, tears freezing to my face and my voice scratchy from crying to Amy for help, I hit that tree.

Amy was busy taking the picture; as such she didn’t help me (the picture, I need to stress, is not posed at all).

The same thing happened when Alfonso found me stuck in my chair. People in Washington are mean.
