The Computer-less Computer Professional

So Kevin drove to work today, took his lunch out of his pack and soon learned that being the mental giant he is, forgot his laptop at home.  DOH!  So it was back in the car to make a nearly pointless round trip from the office to home and back.  If it were a bit cooler I likely would have just worked from home today, but it's more productive at the office when it's warm.  The icing on the cake?  Knowing what a waste of gas that was and knowing the price will be going up now that BP is going offline in Alaska.  Sweet.  I'm such an idiot.

Parallel Lines

Parallel Lines

Shooting out into the night, working under lights
Parallel lines, stay in time
Going on their own, Running side-by-side
Always going somewhere, always running tight

Each of us has life, our own world
Synchronizing every move, your worlds side-by-side
Amazing your friends, but they don't understand
Parallel lines

Complexity, they can't see…
Nothing but, the simplicity
Of your way you fight, inside of dreams

Parallel lines running side-by-side
They can't see…
Fighting disease, rotting minds

Flaming Sun (The Mob Returns)

Flaming Sun (The Mob Returns)

Looking in the mirrors we see our eyes
Fades away slowly to a burning sky
"We've heard the stories, and how you lied"
Quickly turning, our bodies writhe
In the dirt

Though of daylight, in your mind
Chance to put it, on the line
In the night, flaming sun
Shaded light, flaming sun
Burns your eyes

It's the morning of the end of time
Front page headline: In The Sky!
Goes on to tell us, the reasons why
Flaming sun, shoots out at night
Flaming sun, burns your eyes

Find you dead in a ally someday
Learned a lesson on how bills get paid
In the night, the sun it flames
Burning hotter than a summer day
