I'm still in shock. It's so weird to walk into work and have the Captain not here.

current song: "Hallelujah" by K.D. Lang

It's been awhile since I updated this thing. Meh, I guess I just didn't think to seeing as nothing really new has been going on in my life. Just lots and lots of work... Ew.

I bought myself a new MP3 player the other day. I busted my old one so I had the perfect excuse to upgrade to one with more memory for more songs. I never knew how many versions of the song "Hallelujah" existed. I now have three different versions- Jeff Buckley, Rufus Wainwright, and K.D. Lang. I have to say that the K.D. Lang version is my favorite.

Shut up- it's a good song.

Anything else going on? Nope. Probably going out to lunch with my sister and nephew on Saturday.

P.S. I love that little penguin guy for my mood thing- he's so happy looking.

current song: "Civil War" by Guns N' Roses

It really irritates me when people write things and do not use proper tenses or have conflicting tenses. Is it so horrible to expect people to know something simple like this when they're supposedly adults who went to college? Ugh.

Meanwhile, I realized something the other day- I can, in theory, run my laptop in my car using an adapter that I have. I mean, sure it's simple enough to do if a car is rigged up, from the factory, to be able to run a laptop in it but to come up with something on my own to do that... Yeah, I wouldn't recommend it though- you blow something in the car because it can't take the power drain from a laptop and it could fry your laptop. Still, in theory, it could work.

Okay, just so everyone knows- I'll reply to comments later tonight. I love getting comments- I'm just horrible at replying to them. Oy... it's the curse of always being on the move.

Easter was fun. I went to church with the family- the WHOLE family. Easter is a pretty big deal in my family. After church, we headed back to my sister's house. I got to hang out with the Kid (aka- my nephew) and that is always quite cool.

I got sent home with left-overs and Easter candy. Left-overs shall be dinner tonight and I might be willing to share some of my candy at work. Maybe...

The department provides laptops to officers. That's all fine, well, and good but I tend to like having more than just the... minimum. I'm looking around the IBM website and dreaming. This is what I want. Will I get it? Not likely-

I'm such a computer geek.

current song: "Sweet Dreams Are Made of This" by Annie Lennox

First off, I'm sorry for not replying to comments lately. Things have been crazy around here. There are some days- like when the paperwork starts being measured in feet- that I wonder why I ever became a cop.

So I took the advice given in response to my last post and went and saw V for Vendetta last weekend. I went with my friend, Derek, and it was actually quite a good film.

This weekend is going to consist mainly of me sleeping and sleeping some more. I might snack on the occasional Goldfish cracker. For the record, I am a fan of the Cheddar ones.

current song: "Shades of Gray" by Billy Joel

Things were crazy busy this week. I have about 2 and a half hours left of the work week and I couldn't be happier. The waiting is made a little better by watching Bobby play with those little magnets at his desk.

What's everyone doing this weekend? I don't have any plans yet but going out for a drink after work today might be nice. I was also thinking about going to see a movie. Suggestions?

I went out on Friday night with an accountant. No, he wasn't my accountant- my sister said I should meet him. How did it go? Dear Lord- I've had more fun watching paint dry. I hate math and this guy would not shut up about it.

On the upside- he paid for dinner. Can't argue with a free meal.

I am currently working doing laundry. I know it's time to do laundry when I have no more socks left to wear. I also have a case report I should be working on... but I'm updating this thing instead. Woo for productivity!

A weird day

current mood: blank
current song: something on TV

I got a visit at work today from Anna. She came in during my lunch hour with her daughter. It was an experience because it left me with a lot to think about. On one hand, I was and still am devastated at having to kill someone. On the other hand, I've gotten to see exactly what I was protecting that day- an innocent woman and the daughter she loves.

In the end, someone ended up having to die that day. That choice was made by someone else and I had to deal with the result of that choice. I'm at peace with what happened because I know it was the right thing to do.

I also heard back from the review board today. I've been cleared of any wrong doing in the deadly force case. I'm back on regular duty tomorrow.

sore

current mood: sore
current song: "Frequency" on TV

Friday evening was interesting. From what I understand, we managed to save Barek from a suspicious character. Always nice to be of service.

I'm sore and this post has no point because I can't sleep but I also can't think to remember what I was going to write about. What a waste.
