Living Life

Denver is really starting to liven up for me. Granted, there are still other places I think about living, but for now, Denver is doing the job just fine. The big attraction for me in Denver is all the cool concerts I've been missing out on in life living in Hastings, NE and Amarillo, TX. I will get to see two very cool concerts within days of each other. If you want more info, just ask. The book I proposed in a previous blog is slow going, but it is in the works and I am actually taking it somewhat seriously. Hopefully everyone I know will buy a copy when and if it gets published. Hopefully, I will get to do some talk shows and have lots of women yell at me. That sounds like a lot of fun to me. On that same note, I've found that being nice to everyone is one really big hassle. I'm going to have to pick and choose my battles, but being an ass is definitely called for on occasion. And so it begins, Jay the jerk. The battle here is to stay nice enough often enough so when described to people I don't know, I still appear to be a good guy. I've tried this before and didn't have very good luck, but, with new motivation, and a lot more knowledge about how to do it correctly, the experiment should prove to be a positive thing. May I also suggest everyone who visits drag me to the Rio for strawberry frozen margaritas, scrumdiddlyumptious. Peace

It just makes me laugh

Looking back at the recent history in my life, I am forced to just laugh and shake my head. Some of the decision I made in the past really make me ask myself, "Jay, what in the hell were you thinking." Moments of complete and utter regret and also moments of relief and comical humor. For instance, I'm reminded of the time a couch was "stolen" out of Taylor Hall. A rational person would be regretful and apologetic, but I say, hey you know what-does it really matter that much? Is it so important that you have to turn it into that big of a deal? The answer is no. It was a practical joke. Did you get the couch back? Yes. Did we have a fun time acting all covert and slick like. Of course! For some unexplainable reason we all felt like more of a man after our devious plan was so successful. "Why did you ever date that girl? All she did was treat like crap before you dated. There was no reason to continue to like her. Why couldn't I pick up this?" Those are the moments of regret. In the moment you can't explain it just feels right. I say, "In the moment, deep down inside you know it's wrong, but you are too stubborn to make the right decision because some things feel so much better." I say, any girl who treats me badly or wrongs me in any way is out the door. Accidents happen and I can live with those. I can not live with ignorance, or bitchiness. I wish I would have made this rule a long time ago. It definitely would have saved me some troubles. I think I am going to write a book. The title you ask....."Stupid Things Women do to Piss Off Men". I can see it now, New York bestseller list, no worries about money. The comedy movie loosely based from my completely accurate and somewhat satirical book. Shoot, maybe I could even have a role in the film. All I know is I've known for a long time what upsets me, unfortunately, I am just realizing that I have to stand up for myself and call people out when they do it. I'm turning over a new leaf blah blah blah, but it starts today. Peace

Sorry for the delay in the posting, I assume there are only about 3 people, maybe 2 that read this anyway. It's been a busy time for me lately with the cubicle move and all that good stuff. Plus, I am moving "departments" almost all together. I think I will almost completely lose my Pcard duties and completely take over the T&E. It will definately be interesting. Since my last entry a whole lot hasn't happened. I went to Amarillo once and had a great time with my buddy Ryan. Training for my triathlon officially starts tomorrow and I'm excited and dreading it all at once. Hopefully the training and the race itself will get me in wonderful shape for the summer. So I can start taking my shirt off all the time and show off my sweet body. Otherwise, I just take it off and show off my not so sweet body. I went skiing yesterday and my face got completely burnt. I'm talking beet red worst burn in the world burnt. My upper lip and cheeks are blistering and I'm pretty sure they are going to burst and start peeling. Sucky it's on my face but oh well, it's my own fault. Well, I think I've been pretty random for a long enough time. Peace
