My Dog(tm) is a moron. He spends hours every day putting toys under a rug in front of my fireplace, then hours more pretending to "search" for these toys. Maybe for a dog that seems smart, but when I watch him all I can think is "what a fucking moron."

I don't have much excitement in my day, so I'd have to assume that Dog(tm) looks at me as a moron as well, hell I wake up, make coffee, and jump on one of the three computers I regularly use here to surf the web, check my email and once in a great while get some work done. And, spend my time watching him dig his toys out from under the rug, who's the moron here?

In the last week I have realized that my freedom is limited now, I have very few days left until I have to return to "full-time work." On Monday the 13th, I will return to regular work. I am looking forward to it in some ways, it'll be nice to have a more regular routine to my life. However I can not deny that what I am really thinking is, "If I could never work again, I wouldn't."

I used to love work, but I have seen the dark side, I know what freedoms and enjoyment having no job gives you. I am not one to worry about bills, hell, I got the money (or don't) and it's their problem, not mine collecting it. So I never have problems with bills. So although being unemployed has been a bit of a shock, it hasn't shaken me that much. It was more of an interesting experience. I'm sure some of you would disagree, and I'm sure, rightfully so. But I was not born into money, I was born to make money for a living, I worked for what I have, so my sympathy is somewhat diminished.

However, I can not fight the feeling that I now have only a few days of "vacation" left. I know that I'll spend it doing the things I've been doing for the last six months, but I have some unnerving feeling that I should be doing something better, like spending time on a beach in Puerto Vallarta or something. However, I have one driving goal.

That goal is to wake up at 6:00 AM. This may not be difficult for most people. However, for me it is. Although I live a normal lifestyle with breakfast lunch and dinner, watch TV then bed, I happen to have breakfast at 2:00 PM.

You see, after many months of not working a full time job, only working side projects, my life has turned around. I started staying up late, then later, then, before I knew it, I was going to bed at 4:00 am and waking up at noon. It didn't really change my life at all, it was a natural progression of not working a "regular" job. Hell "Adult Swim" kept me up late at night, and the Teletubbies were on at 4:00 am for me to fall asleep to.

So my plan for the last week was to wake up at 6:00 am (or earlier). Monday, I woke up at 11:00, Tuesday at 10:00, Wednesday, at 9:00, see where this is going? By Sunday I should be up by 5:00 am. So far I'm on schedule. It's really strange waking up this early for me now, I'll sit around for a few hours and just wonder what to do, I'm now wishing I had a job to keep myself busy, this is good!

For now I make coffee and watch the morning traffic. I used to sleep. Oh well, life is work, right?

You think this way about Dog(TM) because you're attempting to judge his intelligence against human intelligence. Actually, what Dog(TM) is doing indicates that he's a very smart dog. The more intelligent an animal is, the greater it's need to play. Dog(TM) is adapting a behavior - burying things inportant to him to keep them safe - to the limitations of his environment. When you think about it, that's pretty damned smart!

Dog(TM) will miss you when you are off to work! You'll get back in the "natural lifestyle" (ahum) fast enough...
