Lifetime Membership!

Well, no one really gets a lifetime membership. You’ve got to do certain things to keep the nerd badge and maintain your status. My errands (in addition to getting vegetables at Stanley’s) involved going out to purchase birthday gifts for two friends. Instead, I got them nothing and bought this DVD for myself. This means I get to continue looking…

Smoothie Operator

Stopped in at Justin’s this morning to give him a ride to work. We were both going to run errands at the end of the day, so I decided to drive. I got treated to a great strawberry/bannana smoothie for breakfast, and I’m now wishing I had a blender. I’m not really a breakfast kind of guy (I’ve tried the…

A Little God Complex, A Little King Of The World

After a lot of mucking around, I finally got Black & White running on my computer. I bought this game a while ago, after seeing it on the shelves for $12. I had heard good things about it a few years back, and figured what the hey. Apparently, the game doesn’t play all that well with XP, and I had…

camera++

Justin went on a bit of a shopping spree in the past week, and one of his toys was a Canon PowerShot G3. He ran into the room today after it arrived, and I got a picture of him oogling his new baby. Justin is definitely more of a shutterbug than me, so it’ll be fun to see the types…

I Guess This Is A Bad Night

The dark mood that’s been hanging hover me the past week is still around, it seems. Throughout the day, I thought maybe I was just overly tired, and needing sleep. I stretched out on the couch, read off and on, and took numerous, serious cat naps. Next thing I know, it’s dark and getting later in the evening. A few…

Alex Leaves Chicago

There was a farewell breakfast for Alex this morning. 10:00 AM, at DeMar’s. A few of us gathered to eat some great diner food, and to wish him well on his way to Green Bay. Stu had been waiting for a while when I showed up. At some point, he had broken a small pirate dog picture frame. He ran…

2:00 AM

Left the reception around 10:30 PM, and just walked in the door. I stopped to get a milkshake and a coffee (sugar and caffeine), but the thing that really woke me up was some jackhole who nearly slammed into my car from behind. I ended up swerving hard to the left to avoid him, since he looked like he was…

Wedding

When I first arrived in Indianaplis, I showed up late at my house. Dipti had called, and I had copletely flaked on my going over to her parents’ house prior to the wedding. I was supposed to watch after Petey (her dog) and bring him to the ceremony. I was a good hour plus late and, though I had planned…

Indy Bound

Updated the blog this morning. Running a lot later that I expected. Off to shower, then the car, then Indianapolis for a wedding. I’ll be back Chicago later on tonight. See you in a few hours.

Múm

Múm concert, Logan Square Auditorium. We arrived to somewhat of a line. Interior shot, early on. Not as many people crowded by the stage. Overall, the whole crowd was evenly (and almost politley) separated. We all crouched on the floor (that’s Jim there, on the left in front of the speaker) and talked for a good hour. I had some…

Best Cab Driver Story Ever

Justin and Jim met up at my place (I got home an hour or so earlier than normal, cleaning the entire place and throwing shit into closets). We stopped over at a nearby pizza joint to pick up some food, to pick up Alex, and to make our way to the show. We met a terrifically enthusiastic cabbie who told…

persist, persisting

So I mentioned yesterday that, after we had a few drinks, persist headed back to the office. To work on that 3D graph in Flash. Lo and behold, he gets this up and running. Awesome.
