Don't look a Geek in the Mouse.
Current Mood: anxious anxious
When Jeff's are not quite fully awake, such wonderful prose comes forth.

I neglect my journal so. I spend much time cosseting it, in fact, if you care to visit my journal (daimones) you can see what I've done to the place. Needs work, I grant you. Also, tinarobin, that URL I sent you? I'm so thinking about taking that idea and turning that into my journal. What do you think? Wouldn't that look so cool?

Now, what was I. Oh yes. I neglect it so. I spend much time making sure the paper is just so, the ink just right against the grain...but I forget to write in it. Some of that would be the limited time I have available to me, combined with my moods during that limited time. I spend so much time staring at a computer looking at what *I* type into it at work, that I don't want to do a more mental version when I get home. Forgive me.

Now, the reason I'm writing this entry at the ass-crack of dawn. (okay, 8 a.m. but I was awake at bored at 5 a.m., do I get a cookie...!!!...hisdaffodil, I got your cookies. And your, um. Lego? :) Did you pilfer that from work? ;) Regardless. It's neat. You don't often see colors as vibrant as that in the legos you buy. It's really cool. Sadly, the girl that came with it didn't get any hair. So she has a flower..propeller..thing, for hair. Beautiful present. Thank you.)

I have a tree! Bri, in her wisdom, decided to get a tree. She thieved the money from me in the night (sometime around 4.p.m.) and came back tree in tow. She got it at a steal, it's a tree type I love, but can't normally get because they're too expensive. But for 20 dollars for a 6, 7 foot tree, I'm not complaining. Also, as I was saying, she's right. It does make Christmas, having the scent of pine in the house. I felt Christmasy earlier when I wrote a large portion of my Christmas cards, but this is somehow better, although less glowy in the heart as I write sweet things to people.

To the internet world of whom I owe presents and cards, you will get stuff. Just won't be on Christmas time. Forgive me. :) (to the rl world whom reads my journal, I have presents for some of you as well. Oh quinby....;)

Oh. Ass-crack. I'm leaving for Atlanta, GA, because I said I would go, and truth be told, I like it down there. The only thing I'm not liking conceptually is the short jaunt we are being forced to take to Alabama to meet with the Bri other family whom I've never met. (Do you know, it makes me happy when I use whom. And woe betide the Grammar Nazi's!) Not even the 12 hour drive down bugs me. The 12 hour drive back might, but only because I have to go straight from it to work. I'm pondering trying to see vacillate while I'm down in the neighborhood. I miss her. She broke her ribs and has not been seen much since, except in glimpses of a shadow already faded away.

So that's where I'll be. In an effort to maintain my vaguely 3rd shift schedule, I may be online late at nights while the rest of the household slumbers. For those of you whom only talk to me through IM, just drop me an email if you want me to talk to you, since I likely won't have the IM available to me in any meaningful way.

Also, in other news, Fedora Core 3 is out. This make me happy, yarm.

Since I can't say this to you on proper, or may not be able to....Merry Christmas all. If any of you would like an online personalized message with all the reasons I wish love and good cheer on you, drop a message. :)

What part of Atlanta will you be in? I wasn't very impressed with the area surrounding the Georgia Tech campus. Kinda run down.

I wasn't aware that wishing love and good cheer required a reason, so of course now I'm curious. Why do you wish love and good cheer upon me? :)
daimones From: daimones Date: December 22nd, 2004 09:34 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm actually not in Atlanta. I'm south, in Stockbridge. (about 30 min?) I figure it's easier to just say Atlanta to most people. Close enough for goverment work?

Never been near Georgia Tech. Doesn't suprise me tho, I suppose. I've seen that with a lot of colleges, the area nearby being run down. It's like the University is a haven.

As for you: Love because you've finally found someone who makes you happy! You're seeming to enjoy your job and life, and this is cause for Good Cheer. You're still you, always willing to tell the truth as you know it, and your view on life is not only refreshing, it is occasionally insightful. I treasure your company and continued friendship and for this, you definately need good cheer if I'm going to stick around. ;)

Merry Christmas!

*snuggles* Do I get a message?
daimones From: daimones Date: December 22nd, 2004 09:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ask and ye shall receive?

I love you because no matter your own thoughts, you at least listen. You take people in, nourish them as best as you know how, and let them go. I love you because you're loveable. :) I wish you good cheer because you deserve it for letting people come and mess up your living room. For being a good doctor. For being a good person.

And most of all, I think I love you because you always hug me. :)

Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Aww....
That means a lot. Coming from you, with as much as I value your opinion, especially.

Oh, and since you're all in the Christmas spirit and all, here's a gingerbread motherboard to amuse you: http://www.mediatinker.com/blog/images/gingerbreadCPU.jpg

its prolly not nearly as interesting as you are thinking... sides the offer was techincally extended to hisdaffodil.... so =P
daimones From: daimones Date: December 22nd, 2004 11:51 pm (UTC) (Link)

Unhuh.

That's why it's interesting. Log on to Brig if you want to try and talk? :)
hisdaffodil From: hisdaffodil Date: December 21st, 2004 12:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
pilfer from work indeed. We don't have legos at work, we've got the real construction stuff. Muah.

I dunno what they're for, I think they're just general replacement legos to play with, but I thought of you. :)

Glad you got the cookies.

Enjoy GA. If you'd like to fly out here from there, my mom has a spare ticket from Lanta and back again for the day after Christmas and whatnot. ;)

Anywho, enjoy the tree, enjoy the trip. Happy Holidays! I love you!

Didn't know if it was part of those silly work seminars you were complaining about, considering these are to promote serious play and ideas! I just like the pretty colors. ;)

Hah. If only I didn't have work? Thanks for the offer tho. ;)
hisdaffodil From: hisdaffodil Date: December 22nd, 2004 09:32 pm (UTC) (Link)

nope

Said silly work seminar was about Customer Service Training, and well, I'm not sure legos promote better customer service. And our work would definitely not have things that promote ideas!!
daimones From: daimones Date: December 22nd, 2004 09:39 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: nope

Good point. Never would want those county employees to rise up!

(lego's promote good customer service by realizing that other entities can have ideas of their own and just require another way of looking at it and manipulating the information to see what it is they're saying!) -stretch-

Re: nope

see, that's too complex for our directors. We're talking government work here, dear.
