|Thursday, April 5th, 2018|
After years of using Facebook, with it's notifications and alerts every time someone does anything whatsoever involving something you wrote or something on your page, it's intersting to be back on LJ where there is none of that.
No notifcation when a friend makes a new journal entry.
No notification when a friend comments on someone else's entry that you also commented on.
Though, I do get an email if someone comments directly on one of MY entries, so that's pretty modern.
It's refreshing in a way to have to use a social media type service with *intent*. If I want to see if anyone else commented on JeffPeck's latest update, there's no flag alert thing letting me know about it and taking me right to the conversation. No. I have to go find JeffPeck's LiveJournal and find that particular entry that was of interest to me and click into it and see for my damn self if anyone else commented. I have to WANT to see it. Nothing is spoonfed to me.
It's amazing how ridiculous it is that doing all that extra "work" feels good to me in a way.
Thanks again for still being here, LiveJournal. And thanks for never (really) changing.

|Something in 2018 that I do kinda want to do
I just discovered this new thing that the kids are doing. In Japan, they're filling their bored time by polishing aluminum foil balls into perfect, shiny spheres. I always liked making aluminum foil balls, so I think I would kind of enjoy doing this. But I'm guessing I never will try. Too many different grits of sandpaper and other tools that I'm not yqt manly enough to own...
Anyway, this is cool. Current Mood: grateful

|One thing that's definitely different between now and 2002....
It's 1:50PM in the afternoon as I write this. I just left McDonald's after ordering an Egg McMuffin, hashbrowns, and a large coffee.
"WHAT?!" you're probably thinking. "How could you have ordered McDonald's breakfast at 1:50 in the afternoon?! McDonald's stops selling breakfast at 10:30AM!!!"
But, what you do not realize, viewing the world through your 2002 LiveJournal eyes, is that, you see, this is actually 2018. And a couple of years ago McDonald's began selling breakfast items ALL DAY LONG!!
"Even at MIDNIGHT?" you might ask.
Yes. Even at midnight. Assuming that the McDonald's near you is still operating at such a late hour. The one in my town is not. You see, even in the world of 2018 we still have enough decorum to allow employees a few hours off during the wee hours of the night.
We also have iPhones now.
Comment if you can think of anything else that's different between now and 2002 or the last time you regularly updated LiveJournal. Current Mood: artistic

|Hot or Not
Does it still exist? Now that I've discovered that LiveJournal still exists, almost 20 years after I first used it, I am curious if AmIhotornot.com still exists. I would like to rate others and see how well I score. If it does not exist still, can someone please bring it back? Let's keep riding this wave until the Internet is finally just as good again as it was in 2001.

|LiveJournal is RElive-journal
So I haven't thought about LJ in AGES. Especially since the spaces
and the faces
took over my Internet life (even though I hate both of those things too.)
But so I log in to LJ for the first time in awhile because a friend
left me a new comment on one of my old blogs! Anyway, I logged in to check that comment, and that started me reading back through all my old, weird entries. This made me realize a few things:
1) LiveJournal never dies. It's like a time-capsule for all the weird emotions you were feeling and all the events and shitty days that you forgot about. All these things that you thought were LONG GONE and all the problems you had, music you loved, friends you hung out with are not long gone at all, but preserved forever on this fucking site.
2) I'm a weirdo. I have written some reaaaally strange
entries in the past. It's weird to reread them because it makes me think that I was a lot more depressed and strange than I remember being!
3) I'm pretty much glad that I don't write on here anymore. Even though it is interesting to be able to come back on here after SIX fucking years and reread all this old shit.. some things are just not meant to be relived. Some things are better off dying with their age and taking their place firmly in the past. Also, I don't really have the urge to express my feelings on this kind of a public forum anymore.
Anyway.. that being said, and keeping with form, here's one for the time capsules: I still hate America, I still hate women (maybe just less passionately), nothing all that awesome is happening right now, and you NEED to check this shit out: the sunshine plays the puddles through the mornings, evenings, afternoons... I count my thoughts with coffee spoons Current Mood: accomplished

|I live in Wyoming
This is fucking ridiculous. It has been snowing for fucking like 4 days straight. The forecasted "high" temperature today is -5 degrees Faranheight. The forecasted low is only -9 degrees, which would be cool, except for the fact that it is currently -11 degrees outside. With the windchill it is supposed to feel more like -30 to -40 degrees.
How did I end up in this arctic tundra hell hole again?

|You are surrounded by morons
Libertarianism could never work--Anarchy could definitely never work. I have thought this many times before, but never more than in the last couple of weeks. If there are literally 59 million people in this country that are so stupid as to vote for and support a complete retard like BUSH, then this tells me that our society will NEVER be intelligent enough for any type of self-governance. We will ALWAYS need people to tell us what and what not to do, and we will always need to be told what is right and what is wrong. I think that the ultimate goal of any system of governance is eventually some form of self-governance. But now I can see in a very large way why this goal can never be achieved. The people of this country can never be trusted to make our own decisions. We can't even make a simple choice between a monkey and a human for president, so why would we ever be able to expect businesses and people to make wise decisions in their everyday lives without being told first what that decision should be. We are a bunch of god damned morons, and we continually get worse.

|I got invited to be a mason
This guy at work just invited me to come join the freemasons. Thats kinda weird. I have always wanted to know what that shit is all about, so maybe I should do it as like a spy just to discover things. I dunno though, it kinda creeps me out. Plus he said the only requirement to join is that you have to believe in god. oh well, i guess i could just lie. Shit, after I do this it'll be cake getting through the mormon temple.
square and compass for life man

|Proof that Bush supporters are morons
I know that MIKE already posted this on his website
, but it is too good to not spread around a little more. So, for those of you who have not yet seen this you NEED to CLICK THIS LINK
to see what kind of people vote for Bush and what kind of people vote for Kerry. This is so great, please pay special attention to the placement of CONNECTICUT and UTAH, two states which I have called home for portions of my life. I must be a very well-rounded individual due to the polar opposite-ness of the places in which I have lived.

|Shittiest fucking shit
I now hate OHIO more than any other place in the world. What a dumb bunch of white trash retards. to think that we actually let the fate of our entire country be decided by people just like those from the movie GUMMO
is absolutely mind boggling. Forget Florida, they have always been hopeless with their creeds, and dashboard confessional shit. Ohio is a real let down. We should blow up the entire state and THEN have a recount. MY state voted for KERRY, so how come MY state isn't priviledged enough to decide the ENTIRE election. I hate Ohio and I hate this whole stupid cuntry. fuckin bastards--we all deserve the shit that we are about to get. I am moving to Torremolinos

I want to become the most famous "Jay Wright" on the internet, so I wanna create a Google bomb to my shitty ass college webpage. Everyone should please put the link Jay Wright
on your livejournal or Blog. Make sure you put the link EXACTLY as I have it here!! And please tell your friends! It's just a matter of time till I rule the world of jay wrights and till I am the number one search result for my name.

|I am so an automechanic
Is there anything that I can't do? Today I was able, after some strenuous work, to rotate my tires on my own. It only took me like an hour too.. and I think that is pretty good (using the damn jack and spare that come with the car). Anyways, if anyone needs their tires rotated, don't go for that autoshop shit, just come to me.
I also washed, and cleaned my car today and got the oil changed.
In other news, I am glad that, since the debates, john kerry has a better chance at getting dumb shit out of office. I was actually excited while watching the debates... something that joh kerry has rarely inspired me to be, but I am starting to have more faith in the guy. So, i guess we will just see. I honestly think though that if americans elect george bush after seeing his pitiful attempt at a debate, then we are the most retarted country in the world. The guy can't even come up with an original fucking thought during a DEBATE!! My god! What the hell is wrong with you people, please dont re-elect his dumb ass. I heard on some news channel that it is a race between the "believer" and the "thinker." Honestly, who would want to be called a believer over a thinker, and who would vote for that shit. PLEASE, how pathetic

|i do weird things
I live in a shitty little town where everyone knows everyone else. Now, don't get me wrong, I dont believe in god or anything, but a couple weeks ago I got pressured in to joining a church choir (methodist church that is).
This sounds strange, and it is, but it is actually one of the more enjoyable things that I do in more boring life right now. What happened is that I was at work late one night and as I was leaving I saw a lady that I work with standing across the street smoking (outside of the methodist church) so I went over to see what she was still doing around at this time. She said that she was actually at choir practice. She then invited me in to have coffee and watch them sing. I thought, sure that would be fun because I can always go for some good coffee, and church music just makes me feel even greater.
Well, one thing led to another and the next thing I know the pastor is setting me up with my very own microphone and forcing ("asking") me to sing in the church choir with them. Now, I am no Luke Forshaw, and I havent ever actually sung in any kind of a choir. But I quickly learned to apply the notes I read to what came out of my mouth, and now it is actually kind of fun. I probably would never have volunteered for this, nor would I likely do it if I had the choice again, but I can't say that it has been a bad experience--plus I am starting to get the fear of god put back into me :)
Anyway that's about all, except for now they want me to do a solo. I think they are really starting to push the limits on their forced friendship with me, but I am pretty easy going so I will probably end up doing it even though it is really lame.
That's about it... I'll tell you more about the dart team I got swindled in to joining another time. For now, I should proabbly get back to work.
