Busy busy busy... work has got my head spinning as of late. I love this job, so I suppose that's why I let it get my head spinning. New toys by the boatloads too, so it's not a bad deal overall. This really is a great gig. I love playing with computers all the time. Setting up solaris is becoming a full time in and of itself. I have to say, although it has it's weaknesses, I'm really happy with Solaris 7. not a bad package overall. It'll be interesting to see what Solaris 8 has to offer. Just a hint for those that don't already know this to be a cold hard fact. Firewalls on solaris blow firewalls on NT away as far as performance. Don't doubt it, it's true.
So tonight I'm headed to an art opening with a friend, should be interesting, book and paper arts. Theres so much cool stuff to do with paper. I'm all for the paperless office, save the tree cutting for people that make art out of them. I can't believe some of the stuff you can do with marbled paper, My friend was showing me the most incredible samples, designs with flowers that jump out in front of the rest of the pattern, it's one of the few times that I was left scratching my head thinking, "How did they do that?" So i'm looking forward to seeing what else is out there in this facinating field. When I'm not tinkering on computers I love to write and to put words on this fine paper makes me smile just a bit. It's like taking a step back into history when words could be preserved on paper for millinia rather than a few decacdes. Pretty cool stuff.
Anyway, weather here has taken the turn towards the cold and rainy. Not the most pleasant weather by any stretch but nice in it's own way. Its a great time to reflect on the past year and what got me to this point. And look towards the coming winter and all that is going to happen over the course of the next few months. Still have a long way to go in the divorce process but it's going to happen so I'm not pushing a lot, just trying to take care of it one day at a time. I talked to Gloria briefly today and she was civil after recieving some really nasty e-mail from her the other day. Is it a thing for women to rag on a mans sexual prowess when she's upset with him? It's like every female I know gets off to some degree on telling a man that they suck in bed, (I'm sure there are men who deserve that, but it's far to common to be entirely true) I'm not upset by the statement, my ego was not bruised or my sexuality disrupted in any way, but it did make me laugh, and it made me a little disappointed that she would stoop to such a comment. Oh well, her problem not mine. And as for how I am in bed, that's for the future ex-mrs. to decide... seriously I don't think I ever want to get married again. I think that I have a completely warped view of marriage after all this. Like my parents instilled me with the most healthy view of marriage to begin with... (note there is a ton of sarcasm in that statement) But with all the infidelity and miscommunication and anger and hatred that passed between us, there is a dreadful poison in the marriage arena for me. I think that if it comes to marriage or monistary, I'll become a monk.
