new LCD

my new LCD came today. i tested it and it has one stuck on green pixel. dammit. oh well, aside from that it looks pretty clean so i’m going to have to go home tonight and figure out what i’m going to do with my desk. i suspect that i will have to use one of my monitors in portrait mode or else it just won’t come out clean. we’ll see. this’ll make two widescreen 21 inchers, though. man, i have more monitors than i know what to do with.

i was the least excited with this monitor. probably because i already have one and all this one does is obsolete one of my old ones.

why i feel compelled to buy things mostly because they are a great deal is beyond me.

still, it’ll be niiiiiiiiiiiiiiice.

joan of arcadia

i am several weeks behind in this show. there was just this part of me that didn’t really want to watch the show for some reason. i don’t know why.

but this episode i saw was just devastating! adam cheated on joan and she found out. they broke up and now each have to live with the consequences of their actions.

it just broke my heart. one of the reasons why i like this show so much is because of the excellent writing. you really understand the motivations for each of the character’s actions and you feel the same highs and lows that they do.

but for adam to cheat on joan…it destroys me. i cannot believe that he would throw it all away just for a little nookie. it seems obvious that he was quite conflicted, but the fact that he cheated on her is so wrong. i didn’t think that he was capable of it. i hope joan doesn’t take him back. i think she did the right thing by dumping him.

coming and going

i’m not sure what it is that is getting me so nostalgic, but i’ve been thinking a lot lately about life, universe, and everything. wait, it must be because the hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy open this friday! but i digress.

i have been thinking about how much life seems to change. it seems that friends seem to come and go, it makes you wonder what it is about certain people that draws you to them and what makes one person a keeper while another a passerby.

just recently, i had chatted with some friends who i haven’t heard from in ages. when i had first met them, they had become my life. i did everything with them. eat, play, and even vacation with them. and i don’t know what happened but there was some distance that came between us and we sort of just drifted apart. other people came into my life, more people left. it seems like a rotating door.

but it does leave me to wonder, what is it about some people that have come into my life that stay? what is it about others that i meet and just as quickly forget?
