Slumber and Blunder

Aside from the fact that there haven’t been any blunders, my sleep schedule is really wierd. I’ll fall asleep at any time between 7am to 3pm and then wake up sometime between 5pm to 11pm. Of course, I’m living on a graveyard schedule, so that doesn’t help. My workplace has been shafting me on hours too. I don’t like the fact that I’m only working one day a week, although for me it’s nice to not have to do anything. I have a debt I need to pay back and it isn’t going to happen on work hours like that. Holiday pay is nice though, time and a half plus a guaranteed 8 hours every night I work, regardless of how long I’ve worked… anyway. Enough of that ranting. I’m still loving my headphones I got for Christmas. They’re black Skullcandy ‘Lowrider’ ear-muff type headphones. They just barely fit over my ears, in that my ears go inside them. One thing I don’t like about them is that they sound too good and it brings out all the flaws that were only minor in my audio from before. The trade off is everything else sounds amazing compared to the Zune headphones, Dell speakers, and various other audio sources I’ve had in the past.

2010 is coming up here soon, as in it’s here tomorrow. I don’t think we’ll be doing anything for the new year either, just sitting at home chilling or something. Mom’s upset/bored to death. I wish i could alleviate it, but there isn’t much I can do…

I’m still torn between moving to Salem too. That’s been on my mind quite a bit. On the one hand, my parents want to take me with them and I’d probably be able to start college. On the other hand, my friend needs me so she can get a place of her own. I don’t think she can afford a good place right now without someone else pitching in because of her own debts. If you have any advice on this matter, please feel free to leave a comment.


Christmas Cheer

In spite of Christmas already being over, I felt it was necessary to write a piece on Krampus. For those of you who don’t know, Krampus is Santa’s Christmas demon that follows him around on Christmas night. For all the naughty children, he torments them with rusty chains and thistle, and carries them away to dump them into the pits of hell in a basket he usually has on his back. So next year, make sure you’ve been extra good, or Krampus will come to get you!

Krampus and a naughty child

Anyway, last night was a fairly good night at work, but I had to work in the frozen section for a while and my hands almost actually froze, even with wool gloves on. The food freezers do their job well.

Opensource Belief System

It has recently come to my attention, and very abruptly, that religions are a lot like operating systems. For instance, Christianity has several revisions and denominations to it based on the vast complexity of the bible, and the fact that some people have added content of their own to it. The Koran is one such example. The different versions and denominations of Christianity that come to mind include Protestant, Lutheran, Catholic, Jehovah’s Witness, Muslim (yes Muslim, remember that Koran I mentioned earlier?), and Latter Day Saints. Even Christianity is based on another religion: Judaism.

Now, take Linux for example. Linux itself is like the core of Christianity, being based on Unix (which in my metaphor is Judaism). All the derivatives of Linux are like the different denominations of Christianity. I’m going to say Ubuntu is Protestant, as I am a part of both those things. Debian is Catholic, as the Protestants derived from Catholicism and Ubuntu derived from Debian. You can determine whatever the other ones are however you like, but Red Hat is Satanism, simply for the colors, the fitting name, and if I remember correctly (which I probably don’t) Red Hat charged you at some point for their software.

Windows I am not sure about, nor am I sure about Mac, but my friend says they’re Hinduism and Buddhism respectively. The only problem is that Mac is unix based, so it all collapses from there… Either way, Microsoft did a poor job at their software, so I’m going to denote them as some made-up religion that is only purposed peddling cocaine and terminal diseases.

Runic Words:

zMOGus: I actually found someone using the word defenestration in a normal context
zMOGus: Why would people try and use MS Paint in wine…

Fresh air!

So, i’ve finally started my blog here. Gonna be adding things to it soon! Until then, ciao.
