So a few months ago I posted that I was in a singles magazine called AlaskaMen and that people didn’t want to drop the coin to purchase the lovely book for my pictures and so forth. Well I thought I would at least post what was written about me in this magazine. All I could find among searches of the e-mail boxes was a rough draft that had been routed to me after it was published.
Currently a student in college, Tristan is majoring in computer science.
His interests lay in security areas and in networking.
He is 6’4” tall with light brown hair and blue eyes, with a fun sense of humor.
Tristan says he loves getting out meeting new people, listening to music, movies: watching them and filming them.
I think my philosophy about life is to enjoy life the best way I know how, by making people laugh, along with working hard following my career goals. I like the idea of friendship, common interests, ability to make each other smile and being there for each other.
I would say that being outgoing, friendly, kind, caring and passionate are important too. I do not have any religious preferences, I am a non-smoker. When I describe my personality, I would say that I am very easy going and shy at first but open up to people quickly once I get to know them. I pay lots of attention to detail and have a very good memory. I tend to be quiet but like to have fun too. My goals are to be successful in life, career and love. I would like women who are considering writing to me to know that I am looking for a good old-fashioned, wholesome girl with no tattoos. She would be someone who I can get along with easily and be best friends. When we are together we will be sharing the amazing gift of life that we are given and take the road of life hand and hand.

Okay that was written in 2005 so I am sure I am on a different path then I was then. But as I recall in the magazine the article was a great deal longer. The old fashion, wholesome girl with no tattoos line always cracks me up. I always wonder if that is the line that turns every female away. I have to receive one letter but that could also be on the fact that the magazine is in Alaska and Washington isn’t exactly the closest place to Alaska. But who really knows.
So I was walking to work in the lovely Seattle rain this morning. I had the iPod (I want to say that I typed eyepod on the first go around on this message. I thought it was rather funny. So I had to mention that mistake.) I was listening to the Daily Source Code episode 541 and they had the gophers from the Bed Time Stories My Kids Love Podcast doing the intro and then The Beatles came on with Help. I must say I have always enjoyed the Beatles. But this song came on and it totally made my walk I listened to it twice. It was raining and I didn’t care it was great. This memo from Steve Jobs to the music world about selling DRM free music is great news. I think this will be Steve Jobs legacy the day music was freed from the RIAA. I have no issues with paying for music when people ask me how to steal music I tend to think that they are either to lazy to figure out how to do it or perhaps cheap. I love my iTunes just go in one click song is on my iPod that convenience is worth 99 pennies to me + tax and in WA that comes out to $1.08.
Looks like in July I will be heading down to Portland, OR for Ubuntu Live Conference July 22nd-24th. I always love mass gatherings of geeky smart people. Always so much to learn and do. If you would like to go check out http://www.ubuntulive.com/When I mention to my friends that I am going to something like this. Most of them never really seem to have any interest in this kinda thing. Oh well, So if you are going to be in the area. Shoot me a note.
So this evening I have my Dad’s Birthday to attend. Then since that will run late into the evening I was invited to the Casino. I love the Casino you get all the free soda and I can walk around hanging with the friends and not spend a dime. I have spent $10 in the casino gambling on slots. That is all. I love this bit on Lewis Black’s CD the White album where he is like this is how to have the best experience in Vegas. Go get $100 worth of quarters put them on a table and stare at them for a long time because that’s the last time you will ever see them again. Then go sit in front of the Hotel Toilet and flush them down 1 by 1 by 1. Every now and again the toilet will backup and you will feel like a WINNER! They have killer onion rings though.
It is so good to be Friday. Been a long week. Go have a few beers at beer friday and then stumble down to the ferry. Since Friday + Beer + Ferry + Bus is an odd combination crazy crap always happens. Hopefully we don’t have a broken ferry or a guy jumping off the bridge tonight.
I thought I would take a moment to hit on Anna Nicole Smith. The drugged out gold digging D grade porn star was found dead. It made the front page of CNN with a big old glob of a horrid women on the front page. When did we become so stupid as a nation that some former cracked out crappy porn star dying makes the front page news. I am sure there are plenty of more attractive hookers who die everyday that don’t get any mention. I have sometimes debated if porn stars are just over rated hookers. Because well they show up in some shitty studio. Get paid to have sex with some other human being and then leave. Which seems to constitute all the acts of prostitution. Which is illegal in most of the USA except for 11 counties in Vegas because they have less then 400,000 people. In these brothels it’s highly regulated and require testing for STD’s and so forth. But I have yet to see anything that can tell me otherwise why porn is legal and selling sex is not when they are one in the same. You can get both online as well. But this is totally off topic lets get back to Anna.
Anna Nicole didn’t seem to contribute much to society. She has been in a huge legal battle for some sum of $550 million from some old dude she was having some fun with and they have been trying to split up his fortune. Now that she is dead they are trying to give it to her 5 month old daughter since her brilliant kid who was 20 or so died of a drug overdose. As the Darwin Awards say. Those who contribute to society by removing themselves from it. So we have two people gone. But now we have this baby that everyone wants custody of because well it’s going to be getting $550 million and I am sure all these shady people associated with Anna Nicole would really enjoy that money.
But I don’t want this crap clogging up my front page news It was even on the BBC front page I thought they were better then that. Why not leave all that celebrity crap to gossip rags and things like people. I know this won’t be on sites like /. it was probably on Digg but I doubt anybody cared. I young 18 year old that I chat with on occasion was really broken up about this. Said she dreamed of being Anna Nicole. I said “You dreamed you wanted to be a Low Grade Porn Star who likes to have sex with older men that are dying to get half of everything they own and move onto next guy and every project you are in is a failure and you constantly look like an idiot in the public eye?” she didn’t take so kindly to that. For some reason I think Jen will be the only person who has a response to this section.
So Anna Nicole Thanks for removing yourself from society. We will all be better because of the sacrifice you made.
Alright everyone. Might be a two blog day. Happy Friday! Cheers and a Toast To You.
