Organizational frenzy.

Every time things in my life start feeling like they're out of control, I start organizing. It's silly, but there's a very real sense of I can't control that, but I can control this, and by God it's going to be optimized. Ridiculous, I know. But there it is.

Right now, if I could drive down to our local Apple Store, plunk down my credit card and drive home with a brand new dual-2.0 GHz G5 and a couple of monitors, I would. Just to help me get everything organized and optimized. Would dropping about five grand on hardware make life more difficult, fiscally speaking? Sure it would. But having a nice little cornerstone to help me clamber back on top of this Everest-like pile of mindblowing stuff would be worth it.

I'm not going to post anything major here about recent events. It's not the place. But I will say this: God has the worst sense of humor ever. Oh, and I think I'm going to give up women for a while. Me dating apparently makes the baby Jesus cry – not to mention other people. I'm throwing in the towel after this one.

Brief update: Well, it took a little over six hours, but I've finally entered all the year's data to date into Quicken for my checking account, my savings account, my credit card, my stock portfolio... Whoof. It's great to have a bird's-eye view of this stuff. Definitely a big help to figure out what's got to happen next, and how. Progress!


I am so sorry.

We'll definitely get together next week to chat.

Ironically, it's not me you should send your sympathy to. We can talk about that next week too. :(

please refer to my weblog...
