Another year coming to an end

I can't say much has gone on this year. I'm still working in a call center for at&t and it still sucks ass. I've been thinking of going back to school but I don't know if I ever will. I really don't care at this point.

The only memorable thing about this year is a friend of mine dying right before Thanksgiving. Her name was Victoria but if anyone knew her online, she went by the name gammonbrat. It was pretty unexpected, she had an aneurysm. Her husband Mauro told me when she had died. It was the Saturday before Thanksgiving. I went to a few places online to spread the word since I knew he wouldn't tell anyone but me and that's understandable.

Cybertown was the first chat room I hit. I remember when gammy started going there. I was really into vrml back then. Her first items were really simple but she started learning really quickly. Anyhow, I went to Cybertown and people actually asked me if I had an obituary to show them so they could 'publicly' announce it. I should have told them to go to hell if they didn't believe me. I don't care how bad your relationship may be, you aren't going to go out of your way to tell someone that your wife died if it weren't true. I was pretty much one of the few net friends who even knew she was back in the US. The last time I talked to her, she and Mauro were going out to the lake. She was joking around and such. I miss her a lot.

Anyway, I hope the year of the Ox is better than the year of the rat has been. With that being said...
