I haven’t had my laptop online in so long. There are a number of random sets of pictures I have to post. I believe Zach was going to try to call Comcast and get the internet set up at our place this week. Hopefully, it will garner some more “blogular activity” (Ben, virb comment 2 on “almost there”). My face and arms are sunburnt. I went to Zach and Fetuao’s flag football games on Saturday, and forgot to put on sunscreen. We were out there for about 3 hours. I didn’t actually get too badly burnt, but enough to make my face uncomfortable. Yesterday I helped my friend Beth (the one moving to PA to do Teach for America) pack her stuff into a moving crate with a few other friends. I’m not going to lie, I’m sore today (physically, not emotionally). But we all had a fun time hanging out and talking. We even played a game of Apples to Apples, my new favorite party type game. I just realized I use a lot of parentheticals (I wonder if there is a better literary device I could use). That last one was highly unnecessary. Would any one of my teacher type friends like to critique my use of ( )‘s?
IGN has posted a new preview of our game. There are a few new videos as well toward the middle of the page. Including one that has the intro I programmed (the story book with the flipping pages). It’s pretty exciting to start seeing more stuff about the game pop-up on the internet. Hope you can check it out, but be warned you might have to sit through a commercial or two to see the videos.
I just added two links to the right of my page. They are monthly postings of CD’s that I’m listening to with miniature pseudo-reviews, and little technology awareness blurbs. Hopefully you find them interesting or useful. They have been posted on my virb page for a while, and you may notice that stylistically they match that page better. I wasn’t sure that too many people had been reading them though, so I decided to link them here. Check them out if you get a chance, and let me know what you think.
I went to my first Mariners game yesterday. It was spur of the moment. We had a two for one deal on tickets. It was actually pretty fun despite the dive we took in the last half of the game. We were celebrating my friend Dave’s birthday. I snapped a few pictures as usual. I haven’t been online to be able to upload anything in a while, but next time I’m on, there will be some more fun pictures to look at. Ichiro!
It seems like I’m always on the move. Zach, Fetuao, Niko, and I just rented a house in Kirkland. We’re pretty excited. It’s going to be a fun time living with these guys. It’s a pretty big house. We have our work cut out for us just finding enough furniture to fill it up. It has a nice back deck. We’re going to have some killer barbecues without a doubt. I went to Green Lake on Sunday. There was some volleyball going on, but I didn’t really participate I snapped some pictures of the action though. I didn’t wear sunscreen so I was trying to stay in the shade as much as I could. Have a good week.
Well they found my old car. I’m a little embarrassed about it. It was less than 2 blocks from my old place in a motel parking lot, and it wasn’t even hidden. It was visible from the street. The fact is I know I’ve walked and driven past it a number of times. There are so many of that model of Accord I never took a closer look to investigate. Anyways, the motel manager just called it in yesterday, saying that ‘it had been sitting there for a while’ (yes, quite a while).
On another note, I had a good weekend. I was down in Castlerock visiting with the Hughes on Sunday. We had a good time, and I got to see their new house. I’ll have some pictures up of that and the GC game night next time I’m on the internet with my laptop. Happy Fourth!
