Trouble with ...oh hell with it

Been pretty busy this week with work in the day and hanging out with friends on various nights. However, I am keeping an eye on the war too. It almost seems like a Wag the Dog meets Monty Python with a flavour of Saturday Night Live. I recommend watching Wag the Dog if you haven't seen it already. It was meant as a critism of Clinton, but it seems even more appropriately applied to Bush II. Monty Python bits would be Saddam himself, with the goofy coke bottle glasses and his opening "graphics" which look like he ripped off directly from the Monty Python show. The Saturday Night Live part is because it looks as though its all supposed to be funny, but ends up being very boring and putting everyone to sleep.

Oh, on to what I've been up to. Having fun. Last night hung out with my friends in downtown Campbell. Turned about to be more fun than I thought, but not cause we were, but cuz we just had a fun time hanging out.

Right now, I'm at a place called "Netopolis" for online gaming. I don't have a working computer at my place anymore, so I do it here or use my work computer off hours at work. It's actually pretty liberating. Instead of spending all my time online, I do random stuff like head out of town on a whim, or take care of business that I'd never bother with. Even though I pay for my time, it's still cheaper than having my own broadband access and computer (like $20 a month verses maybe $60 for computer payments plus $40 for highspeed internet.

Have fun!

Time to start backing down from spending

I think I've been singlehandedly supporting the U.S. economy in the past few months. LOL Well, time to start saving and looking into investments. Gots some ideas, but I'm not telling. :)

A friend's opinion

What do you think about the war?
"Saddam needs to be killed, but I don't agree with Bush's airheaded method. That's what you get when you have a hotheaded cowboy as Pres."

Breaking News from the Living Room

Miriam feels like Taco Bell Nachos. She's patting me on the shoulder telling me all about it. Now her head is on my shoulder...rubbing me for some reason. Turtle face now. ok now...the "other" Miriam face. Is this hell? "Shut the fuck up" she says....now she's taking about Taco Bell again. Now she's poking me in the side with her toes. "Why are you ignoring me?" Ok...that's the latest.

The trouble with war

This war is intended to make money. Not just from oil, but in the "nation building" to follow. It's good that the USA is finally making a stand to remove Saddam from power in Iraq. It's better that this happen now, and not another 12 years from now. It shudda happened 12 years ago. But now isn't the best time either. The timing is very suspicious. A couple of years from now, when the War on Terrorism is an historical point would have been a better time.

That is all.

Timing is Everything

Today's daily thought "Timing is everything". I know I haven't put any daily thoughts on my blog ever, so I guess it's not so daily, but hey, it's still a thought. :)

In other news, ...hmm,... oh, had fun at the gaming network storefront in Campbell/San Jose. Playing Counterstrike now. Damn that's a fun game. I'm surprized that I'm not that bad at it. Must be some skill leftover from the ol' Doom days, even though that was awhile ago.

Hikking, What is it really?

Have you hikked recently? A friend of mine really enjoys Hikking. So what is hikking? Well, just let me just tell you it isn't cheating unless it lands on you, so that would make it hikking. Make sense? hmm...well, here's the site where Hikking is enjoyed. http://profiles.yahoo.com/maddemosell. My advice, if you really want to know what hikking is, is to not let life wear you down, wear life like a backpack while you are hikking. ;)

Bin sick

This sucks...bin sick for days and days...not the bedridden kinda sick, but the kind where you are wear out and wake up with a sore throat. Just sick enough to make my days long and tedious, but not absolutely mizerable. arg. I'm feeling a bit better today...maybe tomorrow I will wake up feeling myself again. hope.

Winter vacation holiday thangy...

Spent much of xmas with friends family. It was cool. Nice dinner. I went to Santa Barbara with a couple of friends for the weekend. Sat was ok, but Sunday was great. It was very relaxing. Spent the third night at my parents place. Headed back to San Jose over Mt. Hamilton. That's a fun road to drive. :)

The party was good. Not a rager or anything of course. 9 people, with two sleep-overs. (I finished getting the house cleaned up just in time.) Some friends came up from Monterey County, and my cuzins and their friends came too. It was fun. Caught the fireworks on TV. Only one guy got smashed. lol Then yesterday, I took my cuzin back to my aunt's place and visited with them for awhile.

I'm tired still today...thought about not coming in to work. ::yawn:: But I did. What was I thinking?

James Bond, Star Trek, ...etc Movie talk

This is the season for movies! Bond: No plot, thin story, but tons of fun eye candy action! Star Trek: Too much story for some people I think. Most people where prolly expecting something along the lines of previous two Star Trek movies. This one was more in line with the Star Trek Next Generation type stories, with meanderering storyline lines and annoying unnecessary character over-development.

Can't wait for Lord of the Rings.

With the death of millions of turkeys around the country last week...

lol I love turkey cooked just right...and the leftovers last and last. :) anyways, life for me right now feels like I'm in a holding pattern, waiting for something, but with nufin to wait for...just need a place to land. Not really a rut or anything. ...just nothing exciting or different going on. Work is work...that doesn't count here, but stuff is going on there. eh, hmm, oh well.

Turkey Weekend?

What did you do for your Turkey Weekend?

I headed out earlier on Thurs taking the southerly route to my parent via
Casa de Fruita. So, yeah, I was heading to 101 on 85 around 9:00am on
Thurs. :) I spend the day over there, then head up to my aunt's place in
Pleasanton the next day. Hung out there for awhile, then went to have
dinner at this place in Oakland with then. After that, I visited a friend
up at the delta near Martinez, slept there and took off around 8:00 for
home. So all that was cool...made my rounds. :) Then bought some dvd
shelving for my new and growing dvd collection. built that up...works good.
(it's just shelving of course). Last night hung out with Miriam and a
friend for awhile. Overall, quite enjoyable and relaxing!
