mood: apatheticapathetic

One minute ago: I was pissed at Live Journal because all of my requests were forbidden.

One hour ago: I just got home from a free meal that tasted really good but made me strangely queasy.

One day ago: I was working on getting debian installed on my computer. Probably the most frustratingly unfriendly installer I have ever used. Right now I can't boot into my old Mandrake partition, and X windows doesn't work in the debian one yet so I am stuck with XP, or Knoppix for a while. I also got a free bicycle that I will probably fix up, and sell to a friend for cheap.

One week ago: I found myself on the front page of the Forest Grove News Times. I was one of many people gawking at "Old College Hall" moving down the street. It's older than the state of Oregon which really isn't that impressive to people in other parts of the world, but it was still cool. I think it was about 2000 square feet, 2 stories, and a bell tower. It was taller than the buildings it was moving past. I thought the process was pretty interesting. Big trucks have a hard enough time making it around the corner they drove through. So mostly it was just my butt, and the back of my head in the picture, but sill that is the first time I have been on the front page. I think when I had my face on the front of a section of the Oregonian it was much better though.

One month ago: I was having 4th of July fun. Or really it was the day after, and I was probably in an unhappy withdrawal.

One year ago: I quit my job at DirecTV.

I thought you said that the thinking needed to stop.

Synonyms for wonder...

marvel, miracle, phenomenon, portent, prodigy, sensation, stunner, admiration, amaze, amazement, marveling, wonderment, uncertainty, concern, doubt, doubtfulness, dubiety, incertitude, mistrust, query, skepticism, suspicion

I guess those are all feelings, not thinking. I guess that since they both happen in the same body part I equate them sometimes. Maybe my thoughts are just guided by my feelings.

I have had this same problem in the past. Fortunetly for me I had a great and wise teacher who had clued me in on the mystery of not thinking.
I had always prided myself as a thinker and as one I can see now how it greatly impeded my life. I could not live. I was choking in thought patterns. I slowly began the process of dethinking. It's hardly like I'm walking around unaware. In it I have become more aware and able to respond to my surroundings swiftly and with accurate measure.
I suppose that all you need to do is come up with a few simple guidelines of how you want to live your life and keep it simply to that.
Live like a samurai.

I also wanted to put the bit about my butt being in the paper down for a whole week now, and I figured if I didn't do it now then I never would.

I wanted to say something about my current frustrations with debian.

I also had a thought that people might treat it like one of those open ended quizzes, and spread it like jam.
