my lips

(no subject)

When I got to work today and was talking with the person who's going out on the boat with me tomorrow, I got the distinct impression that she might call and say she can't go. I will actually be more surprised tomorrow morning if she calls and wakes me up and says, "let's go!"

Complain too much?

Well, I'll have anonymous know that my salsa turned out yummy!

It's pretty sad when you're reading along in your friend's page and the moderator of one of the communities you belong to has expressed his unapproving thoughts to the way some things were handled while he wasn't watching. Not only was his own post written while he was still angry, but he also listed the names of members who were 'in trouble.'
How professional.
What you do in your own journal is one thing. What you do in a community is another. Being a moderator of a community does, indeed, give you some special powers. However, you don't have to keep reminding people that you can ban them from that community, or that you can delete their messages, and some of the other neat little tricks you get as a moderator to keep others "in line." You also need to show a little control. Posting names of members who have not followed your rules in a public message shows very little maturity.
I wanted to post a reply, but then I realized I, too, might get put on his list of "troublemakers," and I don't want to have to deal with shit like that with someone who is obviously still in their teens.

On a brighter note, I'm up nice and early.

Back Online

My cable internet service went out on me. :(
Spent the last 15 minutes talking with cable technical assistance.
She was looking at the info on her side and it said that my modem kept appearing and disappearing.
So we fiddle-fucked around a bit, changed the ip numbers, renewed the address, and I'm back online!
She said that the problem didn't appear to be on their end, but that the modem might be acting up. Because it's not a modem that I'm renting from ATT Broadband, I'd have to take it in if problems come up again and get it check out.
Seems kind of stupid that a cable modem should be dying when it's only 5 months old.


In other news, took the boat out today. Took a couple of friends from work. Swam a lot. Collected fresh water oysters under the sand. I should take them back... I have no place to put them... they're in a gatoraid bottle with river water... hope they don't die.


And finally... I'm eating my wonderful homemade salsa. Made it hotter than I usually do because I'm not taking this batch to work. Those people are wimps. I make salsa which I consider very mild, and everyone runs around saying it's too hot. So when I do make a batch to take to work, I try to keep things as mild as possible. But not this time. This time, this batch is for me! So I upped the spicyness. But just to what I would consider medium. About 2 jalapenos per each tomato used. Yummy! (it's been a while since eating spicy food, so it'll take a while for my body to get used to it... hope I don't get diarrhea! ack!)
