im doing pretty dang bad on this updating my blog thing

went to DC United game tonight - was a lot of fun :)

got some pretty good elite 8 games coming up...also, talk about a team playing well at the end, id love to see michigan state make it to the championship now that my "team" lost (memphics)...

in other news billy gillespie got fired at kansas, wonder where he goes next? wonder if aTm would take him back? lol

in other news, im kind of ready for baseball to start up, ya know? ill be spending too much time at nationals park im sure (5$ walkup tickets? count me IN)

i saw watchmen recently. i think its a movie i would/will like better on DVD/watching it at home. i enjoyed it but let me say that some scenes were just a little overboard lol. also didnt help WHO i was watching it with

i go to the metro last nite at about 10 to ride up to chinatown/gallary place and watch i love you, man, and just barely miss the train. turns out the next train is an EIGHTEEN MIN wait. im sorry, but there is not, nor has there ever been, a movie that i am willing to wait 18 min by myself at the waterfront metro to go see.

you dont have to wait 18 min on a MONDAY night for a train. i would have no problem paying a little more (rush hour prices?) to have more trains on a fri/sat night. i mean, really? 18 min? comeon!

thats about all for now...but going to try to update this a couple of times this coming week...lol

i wish motion city soundtrack was coming to this area - id even go to baltimore to go see em lol
i reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeellly should update this more lol
the weekend comes to an end, full of sleeping, reading, tv and relaxation.

i took about a 2 .5 mile walk last nite...just to take a walk. was pretty nice, but didnt find any hole in the walls place that i was kind of looking for. o well. ended up at dupont circle, got out of the metro at u street and just walked up and down for waaaaaay too long lol. it was a nice walk, great weather (much like today)

today was great weather - and daylight savings time was pretty nice also - an extra hour of daylight at night, althought i lost an extra hour of sleep lol - o well...

this is going to be another good week i hope, its a short one (im out on friday) but it will be a good one i hope :)

goals for this week:
  • get rid of more clutter (declutter) - this is something that is continuing, i have been working on it for a while - both at office and at home and am (very) slowly getting places with it lol
  • be more healthy/work out more
  • study for the GRE - specifically verbal!
  • relax (probably wont have much time for that)
  • drink more tea - this one is strange, because its a week to week thing - ill drink a lot one week, then drink only a little bit or none the next week...maybe it will help some with the headaches, maybe working out will help as well
this is random, but the old bluejays logo was pretty sweet:
life is pretty good

only current problem is these headaches i keep getting. i seriously have to come home and lay in bed for 20-30 min, lights off, no sound before they will pass - and even then they will randomly come back...its strange cuz they are one-sided, they dont usually hurt on both sides...

in other news, went on a 2.5 mile walk today across the city, from u street through adams morgan down to dupont. had some dinner there. i miss my ipod, i reallllly need to re-order the headphone part so i can use it again. this week.

also got some GRE study aids, studying starts monday (woohoo...or not?) and working out starts mon as well...

1969 - "wreck me" is an epic song.

i should have done more today, but really was just lazy most of the day, reading, tv, music.

and for the epic fail of today, well tonight: the safeway where we live had two lines open. then they only had one line open, and had twenty paying customers in the one line. keep in mind, not twenty different people, twenty individual paying cutomers - so about 25 people in general...ONE PERSON. the other one "went on break" and the third person left work early. seriously? "on break" are you KIDDING ME?

anyway, its something i have gotten accustomed to, subway being no good...if i had any other choice other than 711, i would go in a heartbeat...

anyway, headache kind of coming on = less computer = end of this entry. maybe ill do another one tomorrow afternoon, probably a slightly longer one? book it.
well its been way too long since an update...for one thing im just now getting around to watching an older episode of thebroken (from 2006 lol) - episode 4

why is it such a big deal to use my ipod on the airplane when we are taking off or landing

if me using my ipod to listen to keane or ftsk and its going to cause my plane to crash, then we have some bigger problems that the economy

seriously, waking me up multiple times to tell me to turn off my ipod is simply not productive - it wakes me up, wastes your time and in the ends, its not going to effect what happens with the plane

other than that life is really good - family is good, its going amazingly with wills. was in longview this weekend and got to see luke and matthew play baseball as well as see the fam and such

random thought: i need to go back to rays hell burger. mmm

other random thought: i need a new computer, but gotta sell my inspiron 6400 (anyone interested?) - looking at getting either a used thinkpad or maybe a dell (new or used?)


i need to sleep more
i need to sleep more
i need to sleep more

also, regarding webcams -- the quick cam pro 9000 is pretty sweet (parents have it) but it is also pretty expensive (about 80 IIRC) i have the logitech webcam for notebooks pro (last years version), spent half the money and it works perfectly. also question: for the best video whats the best program to use? only experience is with skype fwiw

ill post a more in depth update about life soon (this week)

lost is on tomorrow. w00t.

im ready for the weekend (and its only tue)

i write like this (a lot)


until next time
havent updated in a while (seems like it at least)

have been in bed basically all weekend b/c of sinus problems (no fun)

i find myself listening to a lot of "retread" music recently - something corporate, mae, MCS (older), yellowcard (older), etc - i need to find new music i like

i watched body of lies - good movie, makes you wonder how often it is like that "over there"...

also saw the pink panther 2 this weekend, had to get out of bed and do something so i didnt feel so worthless. i dont understand why its getting such gawd aweful reviews, its not like its slumdog millionare or grand torino but its not a horrible movie either. i mean - its the pink panther - you should know what your getting yourself into

i added a lot of people on twitter today too, another way to find good links (already found cornyns transcript from Fox News Sunday about the bailout, etc) w00t.

anyway thats all for now. this was a great weather weekend, but i have a feeling its going to be COLD this week...and i am making crockpot soup this week too.
its dc.
its cold.

im going to work for a few hours today (MLK day) - get paid OT at least haha

didnt sleep very well last night (gotta deal with it)
im dreading getting on the metro (obamapalooza tomorrow)
listening to some jerry jeff walker (should have done this ages ago)
trying to decide what i want to do tonight (probably stay in)

thats all for now...
