Quote Du Jour:
"There is a vast world of work out there in this country, where at least 111 million people are employed in this country alone -- many of whom are bored out of their minds. All day long. Not for nothing is their motto TGIF -- 'Thank God It's Friday.' They live for the weekends, when they can go do what they really want to do." - Richard Nelson Bolles, What Color is Your Parachute? (1970).

I've gotta get a hair cut. This is driving me crazy. I have a barber where I go to school. He's an old man. With a barber's pole outside. He's no "stylist." He doesn't charge a million dollars for a trim. He uses a straight razor for the side burns and neck. But I'm not at a school. And my hometown is infested with so-called "stylists" that charge crazy fees. I want no part of that. So I wait. And my hair gets bigger and longer. And it drives me insane. Which is silly. Why should hair drive me insane? There are people starving to death. People with no money. People with cancer that wish they had what I have too much of. How crazy is that?

I could be Catholic, you know. Guilt is easy for me. (1818)


Jessie and I had a nice little phone conversation a few ago about me and "new" stuff. I had made mention of how much work I needed to get done at the office. And how I had been slacking lately because of my firefighting endeavors. I told her how much I dig this fire stuff. She suggested that I liked it so much simply because it was new... She said that I really seemed to like new stuff... She also suggested that I had been devoting so much attention to Alex lately because that friendship is newer than the one between Jessie and I.

What's up with that? Alex & I have been buds for two years now. I don't think you could call that new. And Jessie is my best friend. Is this jealousy or something? Does she not want me spending quality time with others? Does she feel neglected or something? I'm not real sure yet. I've gotta think on this one a little bit more. (1825)
