I wouldn't usually want to have any other job, but at times, people really make stupid decisions, and now I'm missed. The new accountant doesn't seem to like counting. I was asked today... well, let me re-phrase: I was FORCED today to take my lunch break. But I don't need it. I don't want one. I like being able to work for 8 hours straight, then leave and eat at home. But no. The little accounting lady is getting confused over who's taking lunch time and who isn't. So, in order to ease her "hard" work (I mean, counting), I'm FORCED to take 30 minutes off my day to eat, while I only need 15 minutes to eat a quick snack in order my full 8 hours. That leaves me with 30 minutes sitting on my ass, doing nothing. Over the entire summer, it means approximately 50 hours wasted doing absolutely nothing. Those hours, I will never get them back.

When you think about it, my not taking any lunch time doesn't make it harder on the accountant. She has one less column to account for. I'm actually saving her time.

I will be pissed for a while. I'll bitch and moan for a while. I'll protest in clever ways. I'm gonna torture that poor little accountant. I could perhaps spend all these 50 hours tormenting her.

By the way, I have a pool.

I just came in from a swim. Yep, my pool is clear and relatively warm enough to be enjoyable. It's nice. I feel good and fresh, now.

I'm so relaxed now. I think I'm gonna take a nap.

I know, I'm not saying much so far in this post. But for those who have to cope with the summer heat without any relief, it's my pleasure to remind you that I have a pool, and you don't.

I have a pool.

I had nothing better to do. I have no life.


My unwillingness to make choices is in a way zen-like, whatever happens happens, but in general, it's just so unmotivating.

I'm talking about my blog during the month of october. It was all drug, sex and rock'n roll, but without drug... there was no sex either... and some would argue there was no rock'n roll either. Well, it was good anyway.

Best of October 2006

However, in an open system, there can be an influx of energy into the system capable of reinvigorating the structure -- in full accord with the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Energy input can decrease entropy, and can simultaneously increase order.
http://franksaysblah.blogspot.com/2006/10/entropy.html

That's this ability to hypothesize that separates us from the wonders of the universe. Intelligent life IS the greatest wonder of the universe. An intelligent form of life like us WITH imagination IS the greatest wonder of the universe. Just imagine a race of ultra-advanced aliens with no sense of humor...

There's a reason why I don't want to be clear. That reason remains unclear... how paradoxical! I'll have to quote that one later (yes, as I proved in the past, I'm egocentric enough to quote myself).

I will go through september at some point. Look forward for october, though. That has to be my best month ever.
Why do I always make a step forward only to make two steps back?

I went to europe, wrote a whole lot, met people, had a good time, came back with good intentions and renewed attitude... and now... nothing. I'm just the same old idiot. I deliberately stay by myself, going as far as rejecting offers from others. Seeking loneliness, up to an extent. I justify my laziness and unwillingness to do good things by saying that with my job, I get tired and unmotivated. The truth is, I'm just a lazy bastard who can only blame himself for his own inability to enjoy life.

But I'm planning. I'm thinking about buying a car and go on a roadtrip across the US, move to Kelowna, British Columbia (Canada, people, Canada!) and stay there for a while. I already have a job there, waiting. I will have to deal with life, there. Deal with people. Break this cycle.

But what if I just grow the same old habits back? What if I end up justifying my laziness again, perhaps in order to "rightfully" complain about life and people? It's like granting myself the right to hate and despise.

I'm afraid I might one day consider my life a huge disappointment.
