Another day...

...another dollar.

At work early this morning, like normal. My wife starts a half hour before I do, and I carpool in with her because I'm a bit lazy. So I'm here really early. Coffee's on, but not ready yet.

I've been reading Wil Wheaton's blog lately, and really enjoying it. So much that I'm going to go out and buy his books he already has out, and am looking forward to his new one, "Do you want kids with that?".

In other news, I've also been using Mozilla Thunderbird, which after my last experiences with it I said I'd never use again. I'm actually liking it this time, and like the ability to see the updates on my favorite websites through RSS feeds.

Wow. My second update this year. I must be bored or something.

The newest post in the history of ever.

Wow. Almost a year since I updated - yup, sounds like me.

Fears are funny. Today at work a coworker called me into his office to show me something amusing. What was amusing was that I almost fainted.

The joke was "look at so and so's computer, he doesn't seem to use it often enough." Yeah, the spider crawling up the web sort of does suggest that. Wait. Did I say spider?

Quickstart panic mode. Unable to breathe? Check. Knees weak? Check. Crying? Hmm..not quite yet, but it isn't on me. Yet. I know it's master plan is to climb to the roof then jump onto me. Obviously.

Ok - so I know spiders aren't going to hurt me. But for some reason I can't fathom I am the single most aracnaphobic person I know. I hear people all the time: "I have aracnaphobia, I hate spiders." Yeah - tell me that when a spider near you makes you cry, nearly wet yourself, fee like you need to vomit, makes you can't stand up and not able to breathe. That's my reaction - and it's silly. But there doesn't seem to be anything I can do to stop it.

Had to get that out there. Maybe I'll post here again once in a while..though knowing me......
