Roll With My Crew

Tuesday, June 27th, 2006

Last weekend Megs and I gathered up some of our friends in the area and had some quality hangin’ out time. Friday we went to Cindy’s new apartment and watched a bunch of Friends episodes on DVD. Saturday we got together with Cindy, Jacques and Other Megan and went out to the Burbank mall for shopping, fooding, and a movie. This was the second viewing of Over the Hedge for Megs and me, but it was still as funny as we remembered. Quite good for a laugh, go see it. Sunday Megs and I took care of some random chores around the house and then went to hang with Jacques and Other Megan in the evening for dinner. All-in-all, quite a nice weekend.

This coming weekend Megs and I are flying up to Portland to take care of some last few wedding-related matters before the big day. I doubt we’ll have time to visit anyone, and we’re not planning on making the trip to Eugene while we’re up there, so our apologies if we don’t see anyone. We’ll catch many of you at the wedding in three and a half weeks!

Finally with the Pics

Thursday, June 22nd, 2006

So enough about my brain. I finally got around to posting my E3 pics and the pics from Vegas, so go check ’em out at your lesiure. The big picture viewer page still needs some adjustment, but at least you can see the pics and read the captions. I know I said I’d write about E3 once I got the pictures posted, but I don’t feel like it now. There’s some info in the captions. =P

Brains!

OK, this is just neat. I managed to get a CD-ROM from Long Beach Memorial Medical Center containing CT scans my head. Now, CT scans are actually a lot of flat pictures that make up a three-dimentional image, so there’s actually 62 seperate images, but here’s one that I thought looked cool. I also have what appears to be a profile x-ray of my head. In case you ever wanted to see inside my head and find out what makes me tick, there ya go. Pay no attention to all the fillings in my teeth.

[EDIT: 2006-06-22] I made an animated gif of the whole thing! Check it out!

Scary Link

Friday, June 16th, 2006

Here’s your frightening link for the day folks. Betcha didn’t know that David Hasselhoff was a pop star, did you? Go ahead, click it! You know you want to…

This evening Megs and I are goin’ to some kind of local blogger show thing. Not sure exactly what it is, but Wil Wheaton is gonna be telling stories or something, so it sounds like a fun/weird night out in Hollywood. I’ll let y’all know how it goes later.

This Sunday is Father’s Day, but since dad’s not gonna be in town on Sunday, we’re gonna go down to Long Beach on Saturday to say hi and stuff. Been a few weeks since we were last down there, so it’ll be nice to get back again. Also, it’s measurably cooler in Long Beach compared to The Valley, and since it’s already getting to be hella hot out, that’ll be nice too.

Still working on getting the new pictures up, but I did manage to fix the bug with the comments that some of you had encountered. Should be working normally now.

Got No Excuse

Wednesday, June 14th, 2006

I really have no excuse for not posting sooner. I’ve been putting it off until I fixed the Pics section, but that’s been taking too long. I’ve got the old pics up and running again in much the same fashion as before. I still wanna re-tool the old pics entry system cuz it was kinda broken before, so I’ll have to wait to let you know when the E3 and Vegas pics are up.

Did I say Vegas? Yes, I did! Last weekend Dad took Matt, Kim, and me out to the infamous Las Vegas, and boy did we do it up right! Limo from the airport to the famous Bellagio hotel and casino and that was just to start. There was much gaming, lounging, drinking, entertainment, and food to be had. We saw The Cirque du Soleil “O” show at the hotel and it was really amazing. Very French (read: strange), but it was obvious that all the performers were of amazing talent and skill. To call it an acrobatics show in a pool doesn’t do it justice. I highly recommend it! With regard to the gaming, I actually managed to come out ahead in roulette and video blackjack, which was nice. Anyways, an amazing time, and I promise I’ll post pictures soon!

I’ve also been to E3 recently and have yet to talk about it. Not too much to say; it was a lot like last year. Lots of people, lots of nifty games, and sore feet at the end of the day. I did manage to get Gabe & Tycho to sign my books, though. I also got some nifty swag, which is a staple of these things. I’ll give some more details in the captions of the photos once I get around to posting them.

I also plan on posting some wedding-related news here in a couple minutes, so go check things out over there if you care about such matters.

Oh, and speaking of the wedding, Cindy (bridesmaid) has moved down here! Megs and I are really excited about having her living in our neck of the woods, so expect to hear about our exploits here in the future. For instance, today I took Cindy to lunch over at the Disney Studio Lot, which is always fun to visit. She was properly impressed with hanging out on a movie lot, I must say. =)

Work’s been all right. This and that going on as we move along with the Pirates project. Can’t really go into detail here, but it’s keeping me busy at the office.

OK, that’s enough for now. I promise not to wait so long between posts in the future, and I’ll let you know when I post those pics!
