Nail. Head. Hit.

Yup. This is it in a nutshell…


I Has Beer…

Some of the “meh” as gone away. Not due to beer though. I have found myself sitting at the computer more. I am reading about gadgets and technology. Keeping up on the latest trends is tons of fun.

I also purchased the VGA cable that allows me to plug my XBOX 360 into my computer monitor. That along with the 2 channel receiver that Dad gave me I can sit @ my desk and play more games. :-0 Let’s put it this way. It was a $27 dollar way for James to play his XBOX in High Def without breaking the bank. Obviously. Plus with the way I have it set up, I can move the box to the TV downstairs any time I like.

Now, I am off to enjoy some more Yuengling Black & Tan. Envy me!


I don’t know what it is. I am feeling very uninspired lately. I don’t want to work in Photoshop, I don’t want to play video games. I just want to sleep and be lazy. I think it may be the fact that it is fall, or possibly the fact that I feel like I am going through the motions of life. Sleep, work, eat, rinse repeat.

I dunno, I am sitting here trying to find more to type and I am drawing a blank even in that.

…and Lithium from Nirvana just started playing on my Pandora. Appro? No?


Pic O’ The Desk!

Enjoy! Yeah, that’s all. Just a pic.


Seems like Tuesdays are the blogging day. I seem to blog on Tuesdays.

Not much going on in the NC lately. We work, eat, sleep, and hang out with friends. Spent Saturday and Sunday evenings with Kevin and Jenna at their new home helping move furniture and hanging a TV on the wall. I helped Kevin set up his new Apple Airport Extreme router and get him wireless. Soon he will be back on the XBOX shooting people.

For the 1st time in 5 or 6 years I actually bought a CD. You read that right. The new Metallica album came out this past Friday. I bought it, on release day. The album is phenomenal! I have been listening to nothing but since I got it ;o)

I don’t know if I have mentioned it or not, but I got a new computer. I hate to admit it, but it is a Windows machine. I got a hell of a deal on it, and it is perfect for Photoshop as well as a few games from time to time. I have started a graphics/web design company with a Best Buy co-worker. I hope it takes off. I believe it will, just got to put some time into the beginning stages.

Caitlyn is well on her way to being fully potty trained, I think she has #1 down, gotta work on #2. No diapers in my future?!? Interesting, I thought I would be changing them forever.

*LIVE UPDATE* Dan Zanes back on Playhouse Disney! Dan Zanes FTW!

Caught This Moments Ago…

I think that is all for now. I am going to go take a Prilosec and my other meds, have a cookie and try not to fall asleep.

Peace Out!

My Effin Head Hurts.

Finally back to sorta normal after vacation ’08.

I think something is really wrong, I have touched the XBOX 360 3 times since getting back. I have been lucky/unlucky enough to have nothing but opening shifts at work the the past 2 months. The problem with that is I seem to not be able to stay up much past 2230 or 2300. That means that my time on the 360 is non existent. I hope to get on tonight and play with the guys.

Trying to potty train the kid. She will go near the potty with Sarah, won’t have anything to do with it with me. I try to make it a game, or fun, or tell her that she has to teach me how to do it, but nothing seems to work.

She is watching My Friends Tigger and Pooh. When it is over I will attempt to get her to go again.

I was all hyped up, thought today was the release of the new Metallica album. I was wrong, I guess they don’t like Tuesdays. The real release date is on Friday. Interesting.

I will be getting the collectors edition, that way I can play the songs on Guitar Hero III!

I’m going to go take some pain dullers and attempt to get Caitlyn to potty.

Talk to y’all later…

Done With Having Vacation Time Goodness…

We have been back in NC since really late Saturday night. I am just now finding time to sit down and tell you about it.

John and Tosha arrived on Friday and we went and hung out with Kevin and Jenna at their new house, having burgers and dogs on the new grill. We left Freddy and Maru with them, and we can’t thank them enough for watching them while we were gone.

We hit the road on Saturday for the island. We hauled ass to get there, Dad was leading the 3 car race to the beach. It was a little overcast when we got there due to the remnants of Faye hanging out until early Sunday afternoon.

We went to the beach, we went to the pool, we overate and watched TV. We went out to dinner and played mini-golf. Tosha was the early favorite to win with 2 consecutive hole in one shots, but Sarah edged her out by one stroke. I was last as usual. We had a great time. Caitlyn had a hard time being away from her home. We dealt with it as best we could, once you got her on the sand or in the pool it was hard to break her away.

I had to work yesterday, but since my schedule is set with Tuesday and Wednesdays off I am off today and tomorrow. That means that in the past 12 days I have worked once. I am having a hard time deciding if I am going to keep the mohawk. Some people think it looks ok, or at least that is what they are telling me, others were a little more direct with their distaste for it. The problem for them is I don’t care what they think about it. So it may stay for a little longer.

Now it’s back to getting back to normal. I am digging the iPod touch, but who didn’t think I would? Best Buy will be carrying the iPhone starting 9.7.08. So, this last year of my Sprint contract is going to be torture!!

We are a week away from the new Metallica album, I am so down for that it isn’t even funny.

Tom, I will be posting my review of the new Extreme album. In a nutshell its great!

That is all for now! Talk to you soon!!
