Big rush...

The big rush for me is past now here at work. There was a few days there where I was need to help with some efforts. With that behind me now, I'm faced with something I've avoided for years and years. All of a sudden I have multiple meetings scheduled, and 3 in just one day alone. (These are completely unrelated to the big rush work.) Well, my years of meeting free peace are coming to a close. Looks like I will again be dragged into the inefficiency of congregating in cramp rooms for hours on end. Oh well.

This weekend

was a bit odd. For some reason I felt a complete lack of energy on Sat and Sun. I don't know why? I tried to get myself out to do activities to work my energy level up, but it's affect wasn't that stark. I'm feeling fine now. Really weird.

Commute and cheaper lunches

I completed my commute in just about 15 minutes today. That's amazing. This same commute used to take 35 minutes during the worst parts of the Internet Bubble period.

In other news, something I'm starting thinking about recently is how to reduce the cost of lunches. Yesterday, I had a full breaded and fried chicken lunch which I made myself. The total price for everything, including soft drink, vegetables and Hostess Fruit Pie, came in under $3.75. That's cheaper than McDonald's. Today, I made a sandwich for myself. With everything including fruit, chips and soft drink, the total price was under $1.25. Damn. I used to budget in $5.00 to $8.00 per day for lunches. If I can keep this up, it could budge at $3.50 per day and save about $25 to $85 per month.

Tasks and some stuff

I stayed with my sick g/f most of this weekend. On Sat, I did get a chance to take care of some badly needed errand type tasks. After see was feeling better, we went to see Starsky and Hutch. It is better than expected.
On Sunday, I finally bought a bike. I’m itching to get a chance to ride it now. J We also spent the afternoon in Los Altos. Very relaxing.
I hung out with Miriam Sunday night. Mostly just watched the Sunday night crime shows.
I feel like I was able to get a ton of tasks done this weekend, and had a chance to enjoy it with the people I care about too.

Just a quick message in support of Spain

I just wanted to write a quick message of support for my Spaniard brothers and sisters going through aftermath of this latest terrorist attacks. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I am proud of and admire today's massive and brave protests.

The 31st b-day

I just had my 31st b-day. It was a lot of fun. The plan of gathering at Gorden Biercsh in San Jose worked great. I wasn't sure how many people would make it, so I didn't want to get locked down to any reservations. My g/f and I got to GB early enough to get claim a couple of patio tables. Two of my cuzins and their b/f's showed up...with a couple of other new friends too. Miriam showed with her victim for the evening. Most amazing is that my roommate and his g/f and rock group buds showed up! We had a great time till about 11 when we headed to this bigass house party. I had a great time. I'm leaving out a bunch of details for particular reasons that public just doesn't need to know about. lol

Turning 31

Ok, I'm 31 today. Just a short note about that. :) Thangs have been going pretty good. Work is work, as always. I'm getting a chance to spend a lot of time with me friends. I've stopped blogging for a few days to get off my political trend. I don't mind venting once in awhile, but I can't go on and on about it and be happy from it. So I gave myself a break to get this blog off politics for awhile. :)

I screwed up my thumb last week, which prevented me from sailing on Sunday. That sucked. Instead I spent the day playing Civilization III. That is always fun. :)
