I Got Nothing…

Greetings all.  It has been a while since I have posted, my goal of weekly posts has been unkept and I apologize.

We are about 2 months and some change from the annual trip to Hilton Head Island.  I am excited, but at the same time upset. This is the first visit to the place my father loved more than any other on earth. He LIVED to go to Hilton Head.  We had been to other beaches for other vacations, but dad thought, as most in my immediate family do, that Hilton Head was/is paradise.  It’s going to be really bittersweet to drive over the bridge in his car, in his seat. Smelling the salty sea air through his window.

I can’t wait to get Caitlyn there, another year older, she will want to spend time at the pool, I hope.

On the video game front, I have been playing Grand Theft Auto IV. I know, I’m a little behind, but let me tell you why.  I had it from Gamefly a couple weeks after it came out, but I couldn’t play it during the day because of the glare on my old TV made it impossible! Now with the HD LCD I got it back from GameFly and I am making my way through it. So much so that I bought it from GF. The story is good, and it isn’t crazy hard like the rest of the GTA games have been for me.

That’s it. That’s all. Bye for now!

Time Spent Away

Well. Spent this past weekend in PA. Partied. Drank. Helped out so that my family could be better set up in the computer world. Saw my mothers new placenof living. Spent time with family. Slept in the least comfortable bed on the planet.

Not much else to say. Might have more later. Later.

It’s Been Awhile…

It’s been a little over a month since my last blog.  I haven’t had much to say.  I still don’t have a focused topic for y’all.  Yeah I said y’all, what you gonna do about it?

I have been in the Geek Squad now for about a month or so, I lost track do to the fact that I am only in the store 3 days a week.  I am loving it. The fact that I work with some cool people, and we are busy a lot makes the time fly by.  It’s very very low pressure.

We are past the 3 month mark of my fathers passing.  I am still having bad days here and there. I find the hardest time to pass is in the car to and from work. That and when there is some strange ass shit going down, or if I hear some good music or hear a good joke. Those were the times that I would call him and tell him about it.

I have been to the movies 2 times in the past week, I saw X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and Star Trek.  Wolverine was complete Poo, and anyone who reads this blog knows I can go on and make a explitive filled post on how angry that movie made me.  Star Trek, however, was fantastic. This summer is chock full of stuff to see, Star Trek, Angels and Demons, Transformers 2. I am going to be a busy boy.

Recently added to the iPod are the Complete “You Can’t Do That On Stage Anymore” by Frank Zappa, and 21st Century Breakdown by Green Day.  Old and New excellent music.  Frank Live can not be beat, and Green Day’s new album sounds like it will be just as good if not better than American Idiot!  Mark my words.

Caitlyn turned 3 this past Saturday.  Time sure does fly by.  She is turning out to be a great kid.  Defiant, but then again she does come by that naturally.

I am a very, very lucky man to have a great wife and amazing daughter!

Good Night All!

It Has Begun…

After a lapse of a few months, the planning stages of getting JM Design Studios off the ground are in full swing.  What you see above is the company logo.  I also started on the basic layout of the site today, and I hope to thrash/hobble out the coding of it so that we can get it to the web.  Not that we have hosting or anything.  Oh well, at least our “look” has been established.  I thought you would all enjoy a look into what was going down, other than text stating that it was going down. Yeah.

I’m off to do battle with some supreme acid reflux. I love Papa John’s but it damn near kills me every time!

Stuff…

I’m coming to you live from my iPod Touch.

Another visit from the Easter Bunny has come and gone leaving Caitlyn some toys and books in it’s wake. We had the first annual Easter Pizza made by my sister. It was fantastic. We then sat around in our glut and played Peggle on the Xbox. Sam is the Peggle Rain Man. It’s nuts watching him play.

I’m still getting used to the ropes at the Geek Squad. The amount of procedure to learn/remember is daunting when you are only there 3 days a week. I’m sure I will get the hang of it soon. The guys I work with make the job easy and the learning a piece of cake.

We are coming up on Caitlyns 3rd birthday. Man. Time flies.

I have been spending my free time playing Guitar Hero World Tour and Guitar Hero Metallca as well as Call of Duty on the Xbox.

Soon my time will be taken up with things involving the start of a business. Along with two of my Geek Squad co-workers I’m starting a multimedia company focusing on web design. Should be fun to try to take a bite of the golden apple and be my own boss. Details on this as they progress.

I’m going to sign off now. I think it’s time for a shower. Who knows…

Open Letter…

This is an open letter to you, the asshole coming from the other direction on the interstate.  You know who you are, you, yeah you, the idiot with your high beams on.  What’s the matter??  The lights from the cars around you and on the poles above you not enough?  If you are that fucking blind that you need your brights to drive, I am glad I am going in the opposite direction than you are.  You shouldn’t be driving retard!

Thank you, that is all.

Collection.

I spent the last few days in Pennsylvania trying to go through some of my fathers things. Everyone is well aware of the mans love of collecting things. Now, some of those things are now my things. Found some things I forgot he had. Tons of sports card, not to mention the endless amount of comic books. I have his cedar practice samurai swords, and a push daggar I beleive nicked the drum of the clothes dryer.

Having to dig through some of that stuff and knowing here is much more to go through and make room for has become an eye opener. I will be going though the major piles of stuff of my own an anything that isn’t of sentimental importance will be heading to the heap. I don’t need to keep 4 cd drives for my old computers. See what I mean.

Thought I would share. I hope to be more frequent in my posts.

Thanks for stopping by.
