Bald Eagle

I dreamed of the Bald Eagle Cottage last night. This was owned by my Grandmother, and as the name implies, was a cottage on Bald Eagle Lake in the town of White Bear Lake. In the dream, the cottage was moved right to the lake shore. About where the screen porch is. I was looking toward the lake, the waves were coming in and hitting the cottage. My mom was there telling me about how water totally filled the basement the previous year. Well if you hadn’t put the cottage right on the lake shore, and the basement below the water table, this might not have happened. Normally smart people are quite stupid in my dreams.

The cottage is out of the family, has been for 15 years, maybe 20 years, memory fails. The cottage was torn down and replaced. Gentrification action taken by my Uncle-in-law, who inherited it. Here is a picture of a family reunion. Besides my family, the Tayler and Costello cousins are in the picture. Six out of the seven kids in my family are in there. I am the one in the yellow soccer shirt. I believe I played soccer in 1976 or 77. So this picture is from that era.

08:26 Dreamed that I had a pet Gerbil last night. Let it loose at work. lt chewed on all the wires under the desks.

08:28 The other dream was I was showering in an adjacent room next to a classroom. The partition was taken down, and everyone saw me naked.

08:54 Another dream from last night. Alligator game out of my childhood homes pond… and I didn’t have a camera.

13:36 At work. Did a 2 mile jog before leaving. 45 degrees and sunny. Another 10 degrees, and I am running without a sweatshirt.

13:40 10 degrees warmer than that, I am running without pants.

14:32 I need a new job. Any jobs require "moping". I’m good at that.

15:26 6 inches of "heart attack snow tomorrow. Some places could see 12".

16:01 WordPress 2.5 is out. I guess its time to update the ol’ blogging software.

16:59 I am that clueless guy. Sir? I don’t believe I ordered this Aspergers. tinyurl.com/25t9yy

19:00 I need a haircut. A buzz cut. I shall buy clippers and do it myself. Jot that down.

19:33 Curt’s Salsa is *not* a good brand name. Most of the good Mexican names are taken, but there has got to be something.

19:43 I should put a yard stick in the yard and point a web cam at it. Watch it snow cam!

19:45 Really is depressing. We hit 51 at the Zoyx Compound today, then to be followed by 6-9 inches of snow tomorrow.

19:47 I do have the day off tomorrow. I could live blog the snow!

21:17 Just purchased Prey off of Steam. Only 5 dollars. I have no clue when I’ll have time to play it.

22:59 Almost ready for the beta-release of "No Fear" TF2 map. Need to fix the teleporter animation, that’s it.

23:50 I was wrong. Map leaked, had to destroy all of the work I did tonight. Redo it tomorrow after I learn what I did wrong.

23:51 Frustrating… oh well, go to bed and start over in the morning. Chock it up to being a retard.

08:49 I’m up. A normal 8 hours compared to the 9-10 hours the last couple of days.

08:51 I dreamed of Twittering. A guy was singing, "I love you, even between Tweets".

13:59 Worked on "No Fear" map. Made a one flag version of it. Also converted some textures.

14:06 My famous (in his niche) cousin on a video blog… www.blogtv.com/Shows/15226/ZeVGZmTrZuZxbeP&pos=ancr

21:44 Back from work. Don’t feel so good. I wonder if I got the gout.

23:08 Re-texturing the "No Fear" TF2 map I am working on. See! My renovations skills are transferring.

00:08 Done with map for now… off to bed. I do feel better than a couple of hours ago. Vitamin Ibuprofen did the trick.

10:28 Stayed up late last night converting another map over to TF2. Got it working and it is now on the Zoyx server. Made the server public

10:43 I have just been told that there is no ‘I’ in cyclops. Very profound.

11:17 2 mile jog. There are two "sees" in cyclops. Makes no sense.

11:45 The ice was out of my pond by March 25 last year. This year, not even close. Still a week or two away.

19:36 Reading up on TF2 map making tricks. Not only satisfies my creative side, but also my inner control freak.

20:08 I would much rather do this video game creation stuff over home renovation, anyday.

23:13 Sign of spring! The temperature in my house dropped only one degree while at work.

23:25 The previous post was the amended version of what Michelle wants in a man. Women can be so needy. Me? A vagina. Breathing is a plus.

23:27 I really should tell more dick jokes. I would have much more followers on Twitter.

08:56 Woke up at 730 am. Carpet layers arrived, and had to do the work I procrastinated on.

09:12 The drill that the carpet layers are using is just as bad sounding as a dentist drill.

12:00 TF2 map is done. Just bug hunting now. One wall is see thru, I have no idea how that happened.

13:10 Carpet layers have left. Wow, vast improvement. They ran out of carpet,however. Stairs will be done later.

13:10 Still waiting for the painter to get back from lunch.
