Days Of My Life

And here’s my second blog for the day. Haven’t done a double feature in a while. I think that the last time was on my other site on Yahoo before I ended that site and came here. While my last entry had to deal with my latest addition to this site, this one has to do with what I have been doing the last two weeks, so anyway, here we go.

First off, I am at HCCC for the second day in a row and probably my last for at least a week because it’s supposed to snow over the weekend starting tonight, which really sucks. This is the first time I have been able to blog on here up at HCCC in a while because for some reason I could never get past the logging-in phase until I decided to comment on someone’s blog here on Blogger. I originally planned to go see “Transformers” here at HCCC because it is playing here today (right now as a matter of fact), but since I already have the DVD, I might as well not. I have some CD’s I have to return to the other library shortly after I’m done here. I have to renew some of ’em because I haven’t yet copied them to my laptop at home.

Yesterday, I had some splendid luck. After months of needless aggravation in trying to fix my profile on Myspace because a lot of my links were not working, I am pleased to report that I have finally got my Myspace back in working order so now people can view my pics as well as send me messages and friend invites and all that good stuff.

Now that it is November, it is starting to get colder. It snowed a couple of days last week but there was no accumilation except on the cars. Some days I walk home from the library and I am freezing so bad that I don’t want to go anywhere else except into my nice warm couch. My bed’s no good and I am trying to get rid of it. It’s coffee and cappuccino weather at last. And unfortunately, November also means that in two weeks, it’s going to be another Black Friday for me, my sixth since starting at Wally World. And since it’s on a Friday, I am probably going to miss out on the pizza they usually have afterwards because I’m off. But on the plus side, there’s also Thanksgiving.

Over the weekend, I went to the Ilion Little Theater Club’s latest play, “The 1940’s Radio Music Hour.” As I did when I went to the last play back in August, I went alone, but still it was really fun. It is actually a musical set during the old days of radio and it was really great to hear all the old 40’s tunes and radio commercials. I really had a great time there and I am glad I went. I am planning to go back next Saturday night. Hopefully it won’t snow too bad.

Once again, I have two more days to go and then I am off from work. The weekends are usually the only thing I look forward to nowadays even though I don’t really have anything to do except work on my book, which I am trying desperately to get done by January so I can get it to the publisher. Hopefully soon, that’ll change. Everything changes. And here ends another chapter in the soap opera that is my life.

Hot Times In Herkimer

So far the first four days of my vacation have been going pretty good. I spent most of the time cleaning and working on my book both at home and at the Historical Society. I have also been going up to HCCC as well, doing my Myspace thing as well as checking my Cupid.com account to see if anyone is interested in me. So far, no luck.

Last weekend was the Boilermaker marathon that they have every year in Utica. Someone had thought that I ran the Boilermaker this year and I told them that I wouldn’t be caught dead doing that. I’m in shape, but not in shape enough to run that. Running and me just don’t mix.

The thing is that it has been really hot the last few days. It was like being roasted like a pig on a spit. I couldn’t really do too much walking around. And of course, we also got some pretty good thunderstorms during the last couple of days. It was really hot in the library when I was trying to use Myspace. Yesterday morning while I was trying to fix my profile on Myspace, I noticed that the system went down, partly due to construction that was going on downstairs. I was able to spend some more time trying to fix my profile so that people could access it in case anyone wanted to send me a friend request. So far, I have had no luck.

Over the weekend, I got a new toy. I bought an old video camera from a guy who works at the Historical Society. He is planning to move back to South America next month and he is having a moving sale. It is from the good ol’ days when VCRs were king. There’s just one little problem with it: It needs a new microphone. The images come up pretty good, it’s just that there is no sound when I play it back on a VCR. As soon as I get the problem solved, it’s a sure bet that you will see me on YouTube pretty soon.

Right now, I am writing this from the Basloe Library. I figured that I could cut back on my emails on Yahoo by going later for today and tomorrow since I am on vacation from Wally World. Last Friday morning when I went to the library, I was frustrated when I couldn’t access Yahoo, which meant when I went to HCCC yesterday morning, I was backlogged with emails on Yahoo so I had to go through that. I had a whole slew of emails and a lot of them were junk emails anyway.

So anyway, that’s what’s been happening from the Herkimer front.
