snapshots of an idle mind

*sigh* of relief

Filed under: Uncategorized — sassinak @ 12:03 am

At last. At last the gui is done. There’s even a super cool desktop that will do a slide show of all your pictures. I’ve been madly leeching from my friends and family all day *evil grin*. It’s neat what turns out to look really cool as a desktop background. So few of my friends have photo directories but I intend to fill like a gig of memory with them and just leave it running like a screensaver. This means I have to get the computer reading the CD player (which it may well be doing) and dump a pile of shit in there that I have on disc too. No rush :) I wish I could get people to put up directories for leeching *grin*

Thank god this crap is done. I was getting really tired of having a non-functional pc. Also that was way too much talk of computers for a neo-hippie’s blog. Yeesh.

I just walked home from the Ontario College of Art and Design which is 2.4 kilometres from here (’bout a mile and a half) and other than two blocks on Yonge Street I did the entire thing barefoot. My feet are thoroughly happy. I sort of expected to cut myself or something but my feet seem perfectly delighted.

I think I underestimate what climbing shoes are doing to the bottoms of my feet.

Speaking of climbing. lsd and hubris and i went climbing yesterday (after a delicious breakfast at hubris’ house) and I finally sent a problem I’ve been working on for ages. At least a month, and maybe six weeks. Now I didn’t do it every day, in fact I left it alone for a week or two and sulked at it, but I had returned to it like an old lover in the last week or so.

Finally I had begun to make some upward progress and then yesterday. Ah sweet yesterday. I sent the fucking thing.

I went to do it again but I was so excited I forgot to grab the hold. I think I’ll use it as a boulder warmup for a while (after traversing of course) and then probably I’ll forget all about it. Damn my abs are sore though.

Speaking of abs. I’ve basically doubled my pilates teaching income in the last month. The best part is that with referrals of rehab patients my average hourly income goes up AND my close to home factor increases. Like next wednesday I have a client at 3, 5:30 and 6:30 at the same place AND it’s a ten minute walk! Now I just need someone at 4 and it’s perfect :)

I feel in some way that I need to really do something nice for my doctor friend. He’s doing this for his clients of course but he’s also doing it for me. I’ll have to buy him dinner next month to thank him. That’s the one disadvantage to this job, you get paid next month for this month. Sometimes even like the 20th of the following month.

Don’t care, this is going a LOT better than I expected. I feel like the universe is cheering me on. Even better? If this continues apace I’ll be able to chuck the weekend classes by christmas. Oh god can you imagine? ACTUAL WEEKENDS?!??!


*pauses for rhapsodical moment*


actual weekends.

That would be like crack.

Mmmm momentary daydream:
road trips
weekends at the farm
sleeping in two days in a row
winter camping
skiing and boarding
climbing roadtrips
dim sum with friends
sunday brunch
reading a book all day
staying up late
not getting out of bed all day
visiting friends anywhere within about 12 hours of here (12 pushes it slightly)
sleeping in on mondays too if i can arrange it
staying home and being naked for two days in a row
turning off the phone for two days in a row….
oh my god: sleeping in on sundays again!!!!

mmmm weekends. that’s almost a horny making thought

what’s a word for that feeling that’s really not sexual but is still full of anticipation and electricity?

Just cause it’s pretty, here’s the farm:

Whomever took it please send it again, I unintentionally only saved the less resolved image when i was fixing it for my blog. And I don’t seem to have it… and it has to be someone I know that took it :)

Damm I love my new desktop. Send me photos or art!


gotta teach at the crack of dawn, night kids!



  1. good for you … I would have gone crazy and ditched it all halfway through.

    and feel free to share your decadent naked weekends with us ;)

  2. heh
    well it’s climbing… if you aren’t into working your ass off to make an inch of progress it’s probably not the sport for you. There is such joy in the moment when you actually get something you’ve worked really hard on.

    course i get bored if the challenge isn’t there…

    now if i shared my decadent naked stories with you you would lose all respect for me!

    every computer user has a certain tolerance for their crap their chosen platform generates…

  5. should I have gone with “carnal knowings?” “evidence of bawdry bodies?”

  9. saucy wrenches? does Sears carry those?

    remember when sussing out a farked up PC was fun?

    what types of photos? i’ll upload some tonight.

    my next project is to get apache 2 running then load create a picture and music directory, that way you can leech from my 60gb of iTunes. :D

  10. if sears carried those i’d be there getting a saucy climber with a large dollop of imagination instead *grin*

    cast it’s still fun to figure our OTHER people’s peecees it’s just that when MINE is busted i can’t BLOG!

    anything you like, i’m after pics of pretty much anything and everything to randomize the desktop. I’ve pillaged a few people’s galleries for stuff that appeals to me. If you want to send stuff directly to my .net account that’s cool too.

    ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh a DIRECTORY would be SO NICE!
