the weather is beautiful, why am i working? aimee is being cranky lately, why? i wonder if my bonzai package got to simpletech already. i should probably bring my cellphone to at&t to get rid of that shaking – add to tasks. i look like a little preppy boy wearing a polo shirt for work. man, i need to shave my head – even at a quarter inch my head is starting to feel hot. i should probably fold my laundry. even though we got to put down some tracks yesterday, it was annoying listening to andy tweak. my mom is here for 9 days; as much as i love my mom that’s a long she’s going to be in my house. i miss my bed already. my girl’s not going to maryland this weekend, hoorah! and oh god, she’s gorgeous. i want to get the new black eyed peas album. how now brown cow. get things settled for weddings. need to buy a black tie – add to tasks. how much air is tires? what to eat for lunch. i need to go to dover for a videoshoot. at least it’s nice out.

how can people operate through “asshole mode” like they don’t even care? there are people that i deal with on a regular basis, and sometime they’ll do something that makes me wonder how they can not have any idea that they are hurting someone else’s feelings. sometime i get really upset and try conceiving some plan that would give them their just desserts, their come-uppance if you will, but i usually end up thinking that it wouldn’t be worth it, especially in the whole “karma” aspect of things. but here’s the kicker: when it comes down to it, these asshole mode people don’t expend any serious amount of energy being how they are. there’s no planning, no thought about consequences, no consideration about how it will effect people. but if someone like me were to try and do the things that they do, to be at the same level that they are, it would would require a serious amount of effort.

i don’t know if that made any sense.
