Mid-Term Elections

November 4, 2010

So, Tuesday was Election Day here in the States, so Megs and I went out and voted like all good little citizens should. Some votes went our way, some did not, but that’s not what I wanted to write about. I think our current system of “winner-take-all” politics is stupid. If the vote goes 51%/49%, […]


My Birthday and More

March 12, 2010

As my previous post alluded, I recently turned 29. Here are some pictures: Chris’ 29th Birthday I miss ChrisWeb; my posting schedule here is down from more than semi-weekly to monthly at this point. I’m tempted to ditch WordPress and go back to completely home-grown, but I’m not going to for a variety of reasons. […]


Pet Peeve Time

November 19, 2009

Been a while since I last vented to no one in particular. Here’s today’s: “All Natural”, “Organic”, and “Biodegradable”. These words conjure up images of greenery, Earth Day, and mild soap. Problem is, too often these words alone are used to label something as “good”. Bread may be “All Natural”, but what does that mean? […]


My Damn Car… Again!

September 19, 2009

Once again, I’m having car troubles. This time it seems to be something electrical. Here’s what happened: I went grocery shopping. First to Trader Joes for some wine, then to Hows for our usual groceries. After getting back to the car, I went to start it up and nothing. Everything shuts down. The lights on […]



May 29, 2009

So, I finally joined the 21st century of console gaming and got an Xbox; an Xbox 360, to be exact. Pretty cool so far, and I’m liking the Xbox Live thingy, but I’ve already had a problem. The Xbox 360 is supposed to be able to play some original Xbox games, so I went out […]


Headin’ South to Nerd Out

July 24, 2008

In just a few hours, Jacques and I will be taking mass transit down to meet Megs in Fullerton after her night class gets out. From there we will take her car all the way to San Diego for the famous San Diego Comic-Con!!! I’ll be taking a vacation day from work tomorrow to spend […]


My Poor, Poor Car

February 9, 2008

To get right to it, someone broke into my car. It was parked at home in our complex’s “secured” parking. The perp broke my back quarter panel window, popped the lock, opened the driver-side door, grabbed my mp3 player and the face to my stereo and took off. No one saw this happen, including myself. […]



December 6, 2007

Allow me to get expository here for a moment. My industry, video games, has been taking a lot of flack lately in the media for some of its content. That the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB) doesn’t do enough to protect the children from the violent games. What I’d like to point out is that […]


Finally Home

October 22, 2007

Ugh. What a day. Our flight was delayed out of both Seattle and San Francisco. I felt like crap for half the day. And to top it off, our flight couldn’t land in Burbank due to turbulence, so we had to divert to LAX, a place I despise. Us passengers formed an unruly mob and […]


Blogging > Performance Connection

October 11, 2007

Well, once again it’s that time of year when I gotta go figure out the new SAP system for measuring progress. It seems that every year or two we have yet another new system for performance reviews. This time I’m retroactively going back and putting in info for last year on what I hoped to […]
