11:23 PM: See, I planned to get everything done by the last minute this time. Makes all the difference....
I'm spending way too much money on gadgets, or else thinking too seriously about spending too much money on them. I never use them - I always spend my free time asleep or drinking or reading, or some combination thereof.
It's a sign that I hate my life. I'm trying to import coolness into it. Which is kind of weird, considering all these projects I've been insane enough to get myself into - working full-time, doing a PHP book, and doing freelance Web/database consulting. Shouldn't I be too busy to be moping? I'm not even really moping as such. I just want to buy stuff.
Maybe I'm just behaving like the millionaire I've always been meant to be. Problem is, of course, I don't have the million to back it up.
Willfully blind self-indulgent nebbish or amusingly quirky old coot? And how bout that local sports team? Discuss among yourselves.
All names are fake, most places are real, the author is definitely unreliable but it's all in good fun. Yep.
