Disregard all previous diary entries. What BS.
All my previous entries, I mean.
Took Coaster in to work this morning, as usual. Hard time
waking up, probably because my sleep schedule is screwed
from the holidays. Glad this is a 3-day week, I'm not
entirely ready to face actual work again yet. Enjoyed
having family visit, but it is a lot of work -- don't feel I
had much in the way of actual vacation time.
Got Playstation 2 for Christmas (God Save The Company), dig
on Grand Theft Auto III, but can't play for too long at one
session. Also like The Simpson's Road Rage, which I like to
play with my wife. I let her stay close, but haven't yet
lost a head-to-head match.
Still playing Dark Age of Camelot, also. (Dark Age of
-Camelto- is what I always want to type there) I wonder if
I'll get sick of this game.... my newest character is a
cleric, and I think I am having more fun with it than with
Reading "The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt" by Edmund Morris
(it's the "prequel" to his "Theodore Rex" recently recieving
much acclaim. My dad gave me both for Christmas so I am
reading them in order.) I'm not very far along, but it is
an excellent read so far. Not as thick and heavy as I
expected; reads more like a novel.
Theodore Roosevelt is my hero. What an incredible human
being. It's interesting to note that he's probably got very
strong symptoms of (what we would now call) ADD. :) His
energy is amazing!!! I only wish I could force myself to be
It wouldn't hurt to also have a photographic memory, though.
His amazing self-documentation of his life has caused me to
re-consider this whole online-journal thing. I need to make
myself do this. I also need to make myself report my life
honestly. Too many of my entries (and too many other
entries here, in general), as I look back on them are either
totally devoid of content, total BS, or totally meaningless.
It would be more interesting to give a simple , honest
report of each day, even if it's nothing more than "Almost
missed train. made it. Ate oatmeal for breakfast and
lunch. Worked on more spidermonkey integration with
sovereign server. went home on train. took dog to dog park
where I heard rumors of a woman whose leg was shattered in
same park by playing (rampaging) dogs who crashed into it."
I think I may even consider doing a paper journal of some
sort, but that would not be as convenient, plus I type
faster than I write. Would be cool to be able to add
graphical content to my entries, though. Roosevelt took
close notes of everything, it seems, including diagrams of
interesting animals or buildings sketched into his journal.
Searching for more journal entries of his online, I found
only several links/references to entries concerning the
death of his wife (first?). Would be cool to have the whole
journal from day one available online (in text form, maybe
with spelling mistakes, but not in graphical form as scans
of the page -- his handwriting is difficult to wade through).

my wife wrote. She will be writing one more in the next
day or two.
Well, back to work.
