Today's feature: Sunday's Summary

Well, since the summary really consists of yesterday and today, there's not much to report. I tried to get my hard drive working again to no avail, I've contacted a couple of data recovery firms for quotes, plus, I've reached out to a couple of friends who might be able to help.

I wound up getting very little other than relaxation accomplished today. But I'm OK with that.

Getting to know me...

I am adopted. My parents brought me home from the hospital at five days old, and I've never really had the desire to find my biological parents. At one point my parents told me that my biological parents had been killed in a car crash that resulted in my birth, but I don't know if that is at all true. I think it is odd that it has been said many times that I look like either my father or my mother, since I'm not related to them.

My readers

No birthdays today. No new readers.

Boost the signal! Help me expand my readership by recommending me to someone on your friends list who you think would enjoy reading my journal.

Quote of the Day

"You are not paid to work hard. In fact, you are not paid for effort at all. You are paid for results. It's not what you do; it's what you get done." - Larry Winget

Sadly, I wish this were true. More often than not, we are paid for our time.

Site of the Day

Foursquare.com is a neat little social media app that makes a game out of your daily travel. Keep track of your route (it's the mechanism I use to create my Google Maps at the end of the day), become 'Mayor' of those places you visit the most, and just generally keep track of your friends via Twitter/Facebook as it will automatically update your feeds when you check in. Nifty!

The Time Machine

From 2001 - Some humor...

THINGS TO DO AT WALMART WHILE YOUR FRIENDS/FAMILY TAKE THEIR OWN SWEET TIME

1. Get boxes of condoms & randomly put them in peoples' carts when they aren't looking.

2. Set all the alarm clocks to go off at 10-minute intervals.

3. Make a trail of orange juice on the floor to the rest rooms.

4. Walk up to an employee and tell him/her in an official tone, "I think we have a code 3 in housewares," and see what happens.

5. Put some M&M's on lay away.

6. Move CAUTION WET FLOOR signs to carpet areas.

7. Set up a tent in the camping department, tell others you'll only invite them in if they bring pillows from the bedding department.

8. When someone asks if they can help you, begin to cry and ask, "Why won't you people leave me alone."

9. Look right into the security camera and use it as a mirror while you pick your nose.

10. Dart around suspiciously while humming the theme from 'Mission Impossible.'

11. While handling guns in the hunting department ask the clerk if he knows where the anti-depressants are.

12. In the auto department practice your Madonna look using different size funnels.

13. Hide in the clothing rack and when people browse through whisper "PICK ME! PICK ME!!!!!"

14. When an announcement comes over the loud speaker assume the fetal position and scream "NO! NO! It's those voices again!"

15. Go to the fitting room and yell real loud....."Hey we're out of toilet paper in here!"

Things not covered elsewhere

Talked with Dad & Marlene today, they're planning on visiting some time in either September/October. Will keep everyone posted, I will probably host a dinner while they're here.

Ciao for now.

Saturday's Scenery

This is supposed to be where I post a photograph taken this week. Except, I haven't taken any, and when I went to grab one out of my archives, the hard drive failed. Next week, I promise you a new picture.

Getting to know me...

I am an onion. Sometimes, peeling back the layers makes you cry. There is no one currently in my life that knows everything about me, though [livejournal.com profile] dch4 comes close. If there is something you'd like to see addressed in this section in the future, just send me a pm or post a comment with a question, and I'll give you more information. Otherwise, I'll use this space to let you in on who I am and how I think.

This is the section when I unearth old posts from the last 10 years. Surprisingly, I've never posted on 05/01 before.

Things not covered elsewhere

I would like to thank [livejournal.com profile] bodhifox, [livejournal.com profile] shadesong, [livejournal.com profile] rm, [livejournal.com profile] kylecassidy, and [livejournal.com profile] popfiend for inspiring me to give my journal a makeover. This is closer to what I want it to be, and eventually, LiveJournal will merely be a receptacle for the WordPress blog on my own website, http://www.onmyownterms.com/ Until I can get that up and running, this is what you'll get from me daily.

Ciao for now.
