Pearl Jam - You Are


This broken wheel is coming undone
And the roads exploding
But you're keeping me strong
Rolling along with you, ...

Love is a tower
And you're the key
Leading me higher
When you let me in

Keeping us close, ... so close
On down the line

Sometimes I burn like a dot on the sun
With no one knowing
But you're keeping me strong
Rolling along with you

You are a tower of
Strength to me
The darkening hour
Sees light again

Ooh wah, ooh wah, you are...

Love is a tower
Of strength to me
I am the shoreline
But you're the sea

You are.

Working for the weekend...


Just read this short article on charlotte.com about how much Americans work compared to Europeans. According to this article on this day we have already worked as much as they will for the entire year. They get more vacation than we do and they work fewer hours total. I don't think the extra work is worth it. Normaly around this time of year I'm busy trying to get some super important project done, while wishing I was any where but at work. I really think I would enjoy my job more if I had a little more time off. I believe that I would be more productive in the long run.

Happy Birthday Jeremy


Sending Happy Birthday wishes to my Brother today. I Love you.

Personally feeling like utter garbage today. Been stuffed up all week, and the Allegra is not helping much. I think I must be fighting a cold. Damn snot why doust thou vex me so?

Been playing Everquest lately. My wizard is now level 64 and has his epic weapon. This information probably means little to anyone that does not play Everquest but to us freaks it means I have been playing too much. Its going to be interesting to see how the MMORPG genre changes with the upcoming releases of Worlds of Warcraft and Everquest II.

Biltmore


The company I work for took me on a corporate retreat to Biltmore last week. Apart from a few crappy team-building exercises the trip was great fun. I can't imagine living in such an amazing place. That kind of lifestyle is so far removed from my reality that I can't even begin to understand it.

Lisa and I will have to go there for a weekend trip sometime.

A Perfect Circle - Pet


A Perfect Circle - Pet

Don't fret precious I'm here, step away from the window
Go back to sleep

Lay your head down child
I won't let the boogeyman come

Counting bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums

Pay no mind to the rabble
Pay no mind to the rabble

Head down, go to sleep
To the rhythm of the war drums

Pay no mind what other voices say
They don't care about you, like I do, like I do
Safe from pain and truth and choice and other poison devils,
See, they don't give a fuck about you, like I do.

Just stay with me, safe and ignorant,
Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep

Lay your head down child
I won't let the boogeyman come
Count the bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums

Pay no mind to the rabble
Pay no mind to the rabble

Head down, go to sleep to the rhythm of the war drums

I'll be the one to protect you from
Your enemies and all your demons

I'll be the one to protect you from
A will to survive and a voice of reason

I'll be the one to protect you from
Your enemies and your choices son
They're one in the same
I must isolate you
Isolate and save you from yourself

Swayin to the rhythm of the new world order and
Count the bodies like sheep to the rhythm of the war drum

The boogeymen are coming
The boogeymen are coming

Keep your head down, go to sleep, to the rhythm of a war drum

Stay with me
Safe and ignorant
Just stay with me
Hold you and protect you from the other one
The evil ones
Don't love you son,
Go back to sleep
