sparX 2.0

Ah.. weekends. They're like weekdays, except there's no work to distract me from my compulsion to absolutely fuck everything up.

A little advice: when you wake up too early on a Saturday morning and are already upset about that.. leave the rest of the world alone until you are fully functioning… or you might end up trying to say something to someone, but instead just let loose some horrible threat. Not a good way to start the day, but I suppose I've had it coming.

And then, and here's a really important one – try not to almost die a few hours later. There are 2 things that need to be impressed upon people when they're learning to drive. First, the point of driving is to get from one place to another – I'm the only person that's allowed to drive just to play, or when I'm incredibly stressed out and just need to be in a small moving box for awhile. Second, I don't care who you are or where you're going, your primary responsibility is to PAY ATTENTION and DRIVE SAFELY. When you're in front of me merging on to the interstate, you CAN NOT merge with traffic that's going 65-80mph when you are coming off the ramp at 25mph. And then you can't panic and slam on your brakes right in front of me. SLAM. I'm glad my car has an enormous engine, because I had to do some amazing "swerving around the jackass in front of me" while not cutting off anyone else. I'll drive like an idiot sometimes (this wasn't one of them), but I'm always paying attention – if it wasn't for that, the guy in front of me could have easily started a 3 or more car pileup.

So, anyway, those events coupled with a whooooole bunch of other factors have necessitated a refactoring of "sparx." I've tried to sort my life out and improve what I consider to be my flaws, but that always seems to backfire. Yeah, I'll check off a few issues, but the important stuff lies untouched. But this time, there's a plan, and I'm not expecting immediate results like I normally do. Work and effort this time. Wow.

But mostly.. if you can't drive.. don't. For the love of god, don't.

    This doesn't warrant a new post, but I thought it needed to be shared –
    I'm just getting ready to go to work now, and I heard shouting out my window. It's a man and woman, they're down the street a ways and I can't see them, or make out exactly what they're saying, but they're definitely arguing. The words that I could hear sounded like items on a grocery list. I definitely heard "eggs" and "milk" yelled off in a tone that made them sound like they were some other four letter words.

    I think that's how all arguments should be handled: two people just shouting off a list of food that they need.
