Throwing Down the Gauntlet

A friend of mine recently wrote to me that she is attempting to read through the Bible in 249 days. As it has been some time since I read the Bible, and having a sense of competition, my friend and I now have a wager over who will stick with it longest, and who will finish off the good book first.

We are using a system which looks ambitious but doable. If anyone wishes to join us please e mail me.

I shall note my progress here in order to hopefully keep me on track. I have armmed myself with my Stream and a couple of iPhone apps to aid me in my battle. As ever victory shall be mine! :)

The Coffee Drinker's Prayer

Caffeine is my shepherd; I shall not doze.
It maketh me to wake in green pastures:
It leadeth me beyond the sleeping masses.
It restoreth my buzz:
It leadeth me in the paths of consciousness for its name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of addiction,
I will fear no Equal™:
For thou art with me; thy cream and thy sugar they comfort me.
Thou preparest a carafe before me in the presence of The Starbucks:
Thou anointest my day with pep; my mug runneth over.
Surely richness and taste shall follow me all the days of my life:
And I will dwell in the House of Mochas forever.

Surviving the Week and Dancing Through Life

To ctach everyone up who might come across this blog I have recently over the course of the past month been hooked on Red Bull, Fan Fiction, and Jager Mister. I am very pleased to note that I made it through a long week. Training goes well at work and I will yet call down fire and lightning from the sky on the customer; nevertheless, still working on getting a handle on things.

Life overall goes well. This week I was hooked on fan fiction, particularly that of Harry Potter as provided by the Lady of Darkness. I was also joined by her for coffee at Mile High, which was a highlight of the week. My Bald God stopped by as well, and he and I had the most amusing conversation I have ever had with him. Unfortunately the details of said conversation are sealed in the confessional, but it along with Ms. Todd helped me through a rough week.

Looking forward to the rest of the month. In addition to keeping the social life alive a good friend is returning from her travels (yay), and another is leaving for home (:(). My loyalty to the iPhone continues, but I think it will be awhile until I acquire a Mac- particularly as long as Serotek continues to be the dynamic company it has been up to this point. I am also taking up writing- just a bit here and there, but I hope it will improve my overall skill and perhaps provide some entertainment (at my expense or otherwise) to those with whom i share it.

Finally I find it interesting how my life has willingly been given to Google. I use gmail, Google Voice, and even this blog is written on a Google platform. Now if only their phones would involve built in accessibility Apple might have a run for its money.
