the weekend

So, good weekend all around this weekend. I didn't get in my meal at Kouri's  (and won't this weekend either... maybe a mid-week trip is in order), instead opting to head to a birthday dinner at Alexander's. Some would suggest that an expensive steak...

strapped

Yeah, so if I had it to do over, I never would have even started this whole house buying/selling thing. It's a pain in my butt and a nightmare. My new house wasn't move-in ready, but I moved right in anyway. And my old house isn't move-in ready now, but I...

HorrorHound Weekend

So we're back from HorrorHound. We had a great time, met all sorts of celebrities, quizzed all sorts of non-celebs, and may have even landed a freelance web design job for one of the stars of Friday the 13th part 7. We were recognized just once by a couple...

Scammers!

In all my eBay transactions and whatnot, I've gotten used to scammers. It may be prejudice, but if I see the bidder is from Nigeria I immediately remove their bid. I don't do international shipping. I constantly get emails from people who want to send me a...

More than meets the eye!

So I totally geeked out last night for the live action Transformers movie. I've been a huge, huge fan of Transformers since I was just a kid. I had all the toys, including Ultra Magnus which made all my friends so insanely jealous. Unicron was about the...

Horror Junk - The Tour

Hey, Wolfie and I (with some help from Dave and Randy) shot our first actual scripted piece for Horror Junk, and I'm proud enough of it to put it here. We shot it for something else, but it found it's way to our show and for inclusion on this DVD we'll be...

Sweet smell of success

Can you smell it? It's in the air. The smell of success. A couple years ago, through the magic of a bunch of hard work coupled with a little bit of luck, I knocked one out of the park with the Nintendo Computer. That little machine got me published in...

Abrubt end to the lazy.

Yeah, I was going to stay lazy until the weekend, charging the batteries and preparing to be productive again. It didn't work out quite the way I planned, so after work yesterday my dad and I spent some time hacking up cabinets, running water lines and...

miserable days

Well Friday was pretty miserable. My tire blew out on my way to work, in the pouring rain. I got out to change it, only to find that the previous owner (who had gotten after market rims installed on the car) didn't bother to leave me the adapter to get the...

Keep on rollin', never borin'

Okay, so I found my pimpin' Pee-Wee style bike. And [here it is][1]. My plan was to strip it and repaint it, making it beautiful and shiny in the process. Unfortunately I was discouraged by some anonymous guys in a bike forum that I go to, saying "it's...

Hobbies

I've got too many hobbies, I think. And the list of hobbies I want to be involved with is constantly growing. For example, after my awesome bike rides and my rekindled love affair with my bicycle, I thought maybe I should get a road bike for my commute to...

Bike ridin'.

I'd forgotten how awesome my bike is, and how much fun it is to ride. I took a long ride this weekend, all the way to work to see how long it would take me. I do plan on making the trip on my bike once a week, even with the additional mileage the move...

Out of shape

Okay, okay, so I put on 20 pounds this winter and haven't really made it a top priority to get rid of it. Compared to last summer when I was eating right, running, riding my bike, and lifting weights, I'm not in nearly the shape I was either. As recently...

Cargo pants

So as I sort through all my stuff and get re-organized, I'm finding stuff I forgot I had. Some of this stuff in my old cargo pants. I found a pair that used to be my favorite... you know the type, with the legs that unzipped, turning cargo pants into cargo...

The big move, the new house.

Yep, this weekend was the big move. I guess I picked a pretty poor weekend to move, with it being a holiday and everyone and their mother having something else to do. I called pretty much everyone in my phone book and emailed everyone in my address book,...

Soda Club

First rule of Soda Club: Do not talk about Soda Club. So in my continuing effort to become a little greener, a little less wasteful, and a little more financially responsible, I took the leap and joined [Soda Club][1], which is not really a club per se,...

Stories about me.

I stumbled across this sort of touching article on the internet the other day where people wrote letters to other people who would never read them. It was fascinating stuff really. One example was a woman, now in her 40's, writing a letter to a man who...

Life-long dream

I fulfilled one of my life-long dreams this weekend: I was involved with (and acted in) a horror movie. I've been a horror fan since a kid, when my mom was out of town and my dad rented Return of the Living Dead. I was hooked on horror movies, and have...

On my way back.

So Earth Day was yesterday. Anyone out there do any hardcore celebrating for the holiday? Anyway, so this weekend I took a couple of big, long walks and went running a couple times. I need to get my bicycle back into rotation and I'll be back on track to...

A lot less busy

For the last couple months, I've had something scheduled every single night of the week. Between bowling, dodgeball, teaching, running, Kouri's, Horror Junk, and whatever else popped up, I had absolutely no free time to spare. Well I'm (temporarily) done...
