Xpm can die now

went and hung out with evan for a bit. watched this crazy ass video of a funny looking guy doing the most amazing juggling i have EVER seen. seriously folks, this was hardcore stuff. after that, we played around on the computer a bit. i showed ever a niffy trick with bash i learn. check here for details. :)

stopped by my house for a short bit. nothing new there, though. then came back the kathy's house. now i'm trying to fix a little problem i'm having with vi (the backspace key is not working) but having problems with it. don't know why it stopped working in vi in the first place. didn't change anything so i just don't know. anyway, i was trying to upgrade vim to see if maybe that will help, but it would compile because it wants libXpm to work and I never could get that to work right. so i guess i have to hack at it a little to make it work. the joys of linux, i guess. *shurg*

My dream last night

Last night I had a dream. When I woke up this morning, I started to write it down But I looked at the time and it was getting late. I had to leave for work. It's too bad too, cause I can't really remember the rest of the dream. so here is what I wrote down this morning. it's a wierd dream, if I do say so myself.

I had a really wierd dream last night. It went like this. I meet this girl, and we hit it off. Later that day, We decided to get married. Now fast forward a week. We are getting the wedding ready, or at least, our parents are. I think it's odd that i'm marrying a girl that I just met and I also think to myself that she isn't all that attactive. But anyway, we go to this Island were this sort of indian tribe is and ask if they will marry us. The shaman agrees and the whole wedding party follows the shaman to this ruin. It's a rather large tower on a beach. I remember there being a lot of detail about this tower. All the planets around it were alive and doing well, and the bricks of this tower were starting to crumble. but everyone goes up to it and get in the elevator and go to the top of the tower. once there, we go into a big room that's already set up and everyone sits down and the wedding begins. I am thinking to myself, "How come none of my friends are here?"

that's what I wrote this morning. Other things I remember about the dream are that after the wedding, we went to a reception. it was big and long. I never saw my wife there. she sort of disappeared. but that's it. I know there was a lot more, but time restraints kept me from writing more. :(

at work. working on the webserver. this guy down in cali wants a program on the webserver. so we tried transferring it and it stops at the same spot every time. then i tried to transfer it to my nt box and it still stopped at the same spot. so, there is some problem with the routing between us. phooey.

i need to finish the metrics today. they are due. this last part doesn't make sense so i guess it's time to ask for help. blah.

Looking back on my TODO list from yesterday. finished the metrics. the webserver has all the patches installed. now it's just installed the needed software and getting it installed in the data center. blah.

other things I need/want to do today:
get a haircut
go to costco and buy a bunch of soda for LJcon2000
clean up the house a little (kathy and mike are back tomorrow morning)
eat

that's should be too hard to do all those. i will leave work around 5, i'm thinking.

costco shopping

back from costco. bought a lot of drinks. coke, dr. pepper, mountain dew, and a variety pack of 4 different types. that should do good for a little bit. I also bough the any given sunday dvd. and last, but not least, i bought food. costco food is the food of kings. so now i'm thinking of driving home. but i'm not sure. maybe just chill here a little bit longer.

sleep? not likely

i fell asleep for a little bit. the cats wake me up demanding attention. the i notice my cell phone has messages yay. apparently erin wanted to do something, but i am too tired to go out. hell, i'd still be asleep if not for the cats.

but anyways, going to get officially ready for bed. maybe the cats will leave me alone and let me sleep. probably not.
