Twitter (hangs head)…

I know I haven’t posted in a long while.  But what I have done: created a Twitter account (sad, I know).  I was going to leave Facebook behind.  I did, for 2 days, until I started playing Altitude… long story short, I now have 2 social networking accounts instead of none.  But you can follow me @CK_Jay, if you wanna.  I tweet just barely more than I post, so I don’t promise much.

Update: I thought of putting a Twitter widget on my page, but I like this theme’s default widgets more than I like Twitter.

Update 2: Actually, might be able to have that cake and eat it too.  We’ll see.

On another internet note, I just discovered that I like Pandora.

A correlation…

Today I had a breakthrough.  Now maybe it’s just coincidence, but I’m pretty sure that BYU hires those who don’t own computers to work in their custodial staff.  Countless times I have seen a student custodian take their 30 minute break (breaks for custodians are 30 minutes, right?) playing Farmville on the computer kiosks.  If it’s not Farmville, it’s always Facebook.  Always.

Of course, the inverse might also be true.  Maybe those poor souls just can’t go a whole 4-hour shift without harvesting those fields and sending their friends requests to get a free pony.

Either way, I’m really tired this morning.  Going to bed at 2am was a bad idea.  Stupid Heavy Rain.  You’re not even that good of a game.

Night at the movies…

Ok, so this post is way past its due date.  I mean, Sav and I went on a cruise, and I don’t even have the decency to tell you about it?  Well, if you’re dying to know about it, Sav has already written about days 1 and 2.

So the cruise was awesome, and my favorite part was Half Moon Cay.  It was just what we needed before we start working all spring term.  If you’re looking for a great vacation where you can genuinely relax completely, a cruise is for you.  (Mind you, that doesn’t count getting too and from the boat–airplanes and airports are awful.)

So what else have I been up to?

Earlier this week, we saw Iron Man 2. Sav says we must buy it. I liked it. Not as good as the first but sequels are hard.  (Speaking of sequels, I read that the next Shrek is supposed to be the last.  Let’s hope so.)

As mentioned earlier, this week was the first of many weeks of full-time work (as we’re not taking classes).  Being in an office for 8 hours a day can be tiring.  It’s felt especially tiring this week because I have a new coworker.  With my chosen field, I really need to get used to working with socially awkward people, so maybe this is a mixed blessing, but my new coworker is just plain strange.  I’ve been tempted throughout the week to do small posts like Dr. Grumpy.  If the awkwardness continues, it’s inevitable.

And we finished up the week watching Silence of the Lambs.  Anthony Hopkins = amazing.  They just don’t make movies like they used to.  But now Sav is reading about sociopaths, specifically Ted Bundy, who creeps me out.  And that reminded me of this guy.  (I’m not saying this guy is a sociopathic murderer.  But hearing about one makes me think of the other.)

Well, now we’re going to watch The Lovely Bones.  I think serial killers are the theme of the weekend.  I cringe every time I think, “People like that exist.”  I just can’t imagine being that sick (and not the cough-cough sick, but the evil kind of sick).  I’ve shuddered like 20 times just writing this paragraph.

Tomorrow we have to babysit in nursery.  It’s only the 3rd time since we got our calling a month and a half ago, but we can’t wait until we move and don’t have it anymore.  Pray for us that we get into the apartments we want.
