All Quiet On The Blogging Front

July 28, 2009

I’ve noticed a general silence this week among most of my blog friends, in both posting and commenting…myself included.  Hope everyone is okay!  Probably just busy with life…myself included.

As you can see I’ve been slowly but surely catching up with my Weeds recaps, although I’m not sure if many people are interested.  That’s okay, I’ll just keep on plugging and hope that I can find some fans will find me through google or something.

So this is sort of an update post on what’s been going on in my life.

In general I’ve been bogged down with work.  New clients keep crawling out of the woodwork, as it seems that we are the only kids in town who know anything about Linux.  Microsoft has all the technicians here pretty well brainwashed, so there is a serious need for good Linux solutions.  Because anyone who knows anything knows that Microsoft is crap.  I can’t go into too much detail because of confidentiality agreements, but one client needs to be able to send streaming video web broadcasts from around the world, and another client needs an automated sound decibel monitoring device for clubs.  I tell you, coffee shops are excellent places to make new connections!

In some tragic news, my favorite cat, Otis went missing from my mom’s three weeks ago and has not been seen since.  If you remember, we were sharing a house with my mom, so he was very comfortable with the environment, and didn’t run away because of a sudden change.  Our cats and dog go in and out as they please through the dog door, and out of all my cats I’d say Otis was the most “street smart” and usually pretty cautious.  My mom put fliers with a picture on every door up and down the block, but she got no calls.  I have a feeling he’s not coming back.  I’m devastated.  I spent a whole day in bed a few weeks ago crying.  The worst part is I’m thousands of miles away and I can’t help look for him.  I kept having dreams about finding him, I’d wake up and call my mom to see if there was any news, but there never was.  He lives in my dreams now.

My poor Bubs...I hope you're in a better place.

Okay, enough tears and sadness, I have good news too!

I’M GOING TO HAVE A BABY!

Where there is death, there is always new life.  I just found out a few days ago, it’s really early, probably only a few weeks.  We’re super excited, we’ve been wanting this for awhile and we just started trying.  I haven’t told the whole family yet, just my parents and some close friends, so please don’t say anything about it on my Turkish blog or on Facebook.  I’m waiting a few more weeks to tell everyone.  I’ve got my fingers and toes crossed that everything will go okay.  I’m such a worrier.

Media Storm

June 26, 2009

Okay…Michael Jackson died.  I can’t just ignore that.

He’s the same age as my mom.  I can’t even reign in that fact in my mind, it seems outrageous that they have anything in common.

I grew up in a post-Thriller age, when he started getting paler and his behavior starting getting stranger.  When I became aware of him as a child, even then I thought he was creepy.

I’m not going to talk about his music, I think it’s redundant to call him a legend, that’s obvious.  I think it’s very tragic that he became such a victim of fame.  Just another reason children should not be famous.

Do I believe he ever touched children inappropriately?  I dunno…sadly all child molesters are victims of molestation themselves.  People go from victims to perpetrators because as adults that which was horrifying as a child becomes pleasing.  Thus, they seek to reenact past trauma.  Molester or not, he clearly suffered from many mental issues.

I bet a lot of people still have no idea Farrah Fawcett died too, cause you wouldn’t know it by watching the news.

Ultimately, two people who were both in a lot of pain are now free from it.  That’s the only good thing about this.
