I’m So Selfish, it’s all about me
Today I didn’t even sign-in to GAIM or Trillian to check my instant messages. And I found out that my floors will probably be installed next week. They are coming here, to Austin, from Memphis. I suppose they do have a lot of trees in Memphis. I just never thought of it as the hardwood capitol of the world, but that’s where the floor’s coming from, so I suppose the title holds. My office is all nice and blue and I’m just about ready for the floors to get installed so I can get my home back together again and start doing my office. I can hardly wait. I really want to finish it and start enjoying it.
There was a story on Slashdot yesterday about a guy who was working at Microsoft. He happened upon a pallat of G5’s being delivered to the MSFT world headquarters and took a picture of this monumental event. He later put the photo in his blogger and was, ahem, “let go” from the evil empire. I like to think that my blogger is mine, and that nobody really cares about it. I mean, there’s not much here that’s really riveting, is there? So why would my employer get all hopped up about the subject matter of my blogs? But, I suppose I should be careful.
I actually almost never really blog about work, it’s just not that interesting a subject matter and I figure that you’ve heard it all before. Plus I really blog to get away from the day’s events. To seek solace from the daily grind, which can really get you down if you don’t have some kind of a release. But I’ve always thought that this is my little world and, as such, I can blog about whatever I wish, without concern. I suppose, in this day of electron gadgets, GPS, satellite monitoring and the like, I should resolve to start being more careful. But what I really want to know is, why would MSFT care about a load of dual-proc G5’s and what’s the real harm if it got out that MSFT had them? I mean, their products do run on the Mac, so what’s the harm? I just don’t get it.
I can hardly wait to go out photographing this weekend. I want to get out of the house, enjoy the nice weather, and go do something, instead of staying around, moping and not enjoying myself. Plus it’s been a while since I’ve really done a lot of pictures. I plan on bringing about 10 rolls of film and just going to town. I probably won’t be able to afford to get them developed for six years but what the hey?
Until next time, this is Carol, the Carol in “Carol’s Little World” signing off.
