I don’t know…

If all of the worlds problems could be solved with communication, then all the worlds politicians would be mutes.

It made sense when I wrote it down anyway…

Filed under: mental notes, No Smoking — fohat @ 8:22 pm

Is it Thursday? I think I’ve been in a bit of a time vortex of late. I recently found some On-Line Piano Lessons and I’m up to the note names on the keys. This will be approximately the 4th attempt for me at learning to play the piano. I figure since I’m on my nth attempt to quit smoking, it couldn’t hurt. The first time I attempted to learn the piano, I believe I was about 8 years old or so. It’s funny, I remember that my mom let me walk to the lessons and back without her. I think that might have been a bigger deal to me then the piano lessons. They were accross the street and the teacher was someone she knew, and I don’t recall going to many of them. The next time I tried to learn was around high school sometime, and then again a couple years after that. I think I might be able to do it myself If I can keep going with it. That’s always been the problem: Attention span the size of a peanut. It might even just span the circumference. I bet I spelled that wrong.

The second day

Filed under: No Smoking — fohat @ 12:44 am

went better then the first, but only by a slim margin; and by slim, I mean thinner then an atom. Hi, my name is Slim Margin. Irregardlessly, I haven’t smoked anything in about 48 odd hours (or perhaps even) and it’s a very weird feeling. I noticed today how bad the stairwell in the parking garage smelled and wished I had a smoke to block it out. Just 2 days and the “old factory” is springing back to life. Maybe tomorrow someone will wear some nice perfume or something. Maybe that someone will be me. I don’t have any perfume though, so it might be tricky. I told some women at the lunch table that I thought it would be cool to come into work wearing a kilt. They told me that if it was me doing it, they wouldn’t give it a second thought. At first I was considering being offended by that comment (that I invited), however I ended up feeling proud that my freakness is still going strong- Now with new and improoved non-smoking flavour goodness sealed for freshness not available in Wyoming or run on sentances.

Hot Dogs = Bad

Filed under: Uncategorized — fohat @ 10:47 pm

I, for one, welcome our new hot dog eating mutated overlords.

Apparently there will soon be experiments where mice are fed hot dogs to see if they get cancer. Unfortunatly, the expirements will go horribly wrong and one lucky mouse will become Mighty.

He’s Adicted to Nicotine Patches…

Filed under: No Smoking — fohat @ 2:39 pm

I’m trying to quit smoking again. Today I started the 14MG nicotine patch “therapy”. It’s like Methadone for cigarettes. I went down to the drugstore last night and got a box of these things, 14 patches for $38. The woman behind the counter reached for 2 different boxes of cigars before I exclaimed, “Top shelf!” I hate stupid clerks.

Someone recently said to me that “It takes 11 tries to finally quit”. I think I’m on 12 now, so it better take. Not too sure about these patches, I’ve only had 1 cofee before work and I’m ultra hyper and this damn thing is slightly irratating my skin. I’m still undecided about whether to continue using the patch or just go “cold turkey”, however my previous attempts at cold turkey as recently as last week did not work too well. Changing 20 year old behaviour patterns is tricksey…

Make Love, Not War…

My bleary eyes have just finished this article written by Seymour Hersh of the New Yorker, in which he claims that the U.S. has been helping Isreal all along with gearing up for this war in Lebanon. It is supposedly a precursor to a war with Iran. If true I can’t say It’s surprising to me. War sucks, but the people who start them suck more.

Something in the air

Filed under: Uncategorized — fohat @ 11:15 pm

And no, it isn’t Thunderclap Newman.  But I’ve been getting a few space whispers here and there and I’m feeling a bit giddy.  I just need to find a few Kettles and some of those big plastic water containers…  Maybe some brass plates of some type, preferably thin in nature…  Perhaps a large wooden cylinder with some kind of “membrane” on either end, with a sort of mallet/fulcrum device that you can tap with your foot…  But I digress.  Things might be happening my friends, oh yes.

Play Anarchy Online Free (Until January 15th)

Filed under: games — fohat @ 12:16 pm

Just saw this on Metafilter, Funcomm is offering the original Anarchy Online, Free until January 15th, 2007. This is the original core game and doesn’t include any expansions. I played this game briefly in 2004 on a free trial and it was interesting. I tried an “Engineer” and they are supposed to build robots to help them kill things. I stayed in the “Newbie” zone for about 2 hours trying to figure out how to control my robot (I don’t like to read manuals) and then kinda gave up. I really want to try this game again and give it a fair shake. Right now I am playing a Priest character in World of Warcraft. Oddly enough, an engineer as well. I think I have a strange fascination with robots…

Wello Horld!

Filed under: first psot!1 — fohat @ 5:49 am

Now that I’ve determined that my original title for this blog has already been taken, (Clueless and Slightly Slack), which I figured would probably be the case when I named it last night, I have come up with a new and even more improved untitle. This place shall be known as Foblog’s Hat. It’s purpose is to gather letters from my brain and form words. The hope is that some of the words will go on to big things like. Sentance Fragments! Or? Questions about things. I have a “real” website too, which maybe will all combine up in some future collusion against the evil underlord. Until then, you can visit (naturally) and listen to some of my freakmusic.
