Well. That was a weekend.

Yep. Quite a weekend indeed. I skipped out on all Friday night festivities and went to bed early, bracing myself for a long Saturday of removing an old furnace and installing a new one. Angie's dad did the majority of the work and all the hard stuff,...

Welcome back to high school, jerks.

Boyz night out with Polk last night was fantastic. Less fantastic is that I've spent the last 3 nights between work and pitch black darkness vacuuming leaves, blowing leaves, raking leaves, kicking leaves, and sometimes yelling at leaves. I have a very...

SPAM! Glorious SPAM!

I can't believe it! I'm writing a new feature for tim.cx to display the latest comments on the site, and in the process stumbled across several gems like the comments to this photo [right here][1]. Normally I'd be furious, but I'm just excited that someone...

Have I mentioned

Have I mentioned I'm on a bowling league? Because I am, and we start tonight, and I'm totally pumped for it. I spent the weekend in silent anticipation for today and my bowling league debut. Friday my long-lost best friend Fabish called with a night off...

Signing my life away.

Well, I went and did it. We did our usual Thursday happy-after-work fun, and got on the subject of running and marathons and a bunch of stuff. Under the influence of a couple of cheap Coors Lights, the inspiration of a marathon runner, and a slightly cocky...

It feels a

It feels a little different to update only tim.cx and not LJ at the same time, but I'll get used to it. The weekend was good. On Friday Angie and I hit a haunted house for the first time in way too many years. If it hadn't been free, I probably wouldn't...

GB-PVR box, round 3.

Silly me for not noticing the "Enable Resume Prompt" option in the config options of GB-PVR. That little check box enabled the main thing I missed from my Dish DVR. TV shows and videos can now be stopped and started right where I left off....

The big 5. Half decade.

Well. Here it is. I know everyone was on the edge of their seats, all like "it's a few days past Tim's fifth LJ anniversary without a huge, rambling post about what the year has presented and etc." Well, wait no more, my dear readers. This year has been a...

Conceeding

I've conceeded. I've admitted defeat. I've accepted failure. I'm going to have credit card debt either my entire life, or until I get married. That's just a fact of life now, and there's no need any more to adjust my life in a futile effort to pay back my...

Con artist, wings, and disappointment.

So last night was Polk and I boy's night out, so I was surprised to see Randy Toy already at Buffalo Wild Wings when I got there. Dave, Kristi, and Brandon showed up later. They left early so Polk and I could get our man-talk on over PBRs. Ah, but first...

Long time, no post

Hey, readers. It's been a while. I'd apologize for my poor posting skills, but on the other hand I don't feel bad about my absence. I'm torn. Things have been good on my end. Since returning from Vegas, my schedule has been pretty packed with all sorts of...

GB-PVR box, round 2.

Installation was a breeze, but to be honest, this project has been more of an uphill battle than I expected it to be. Since this will be a replacement for my DVR and not a "real" computer, I had to have a remote control. I bought one on eBay for $40. It...

Viva Las Vegas

Ah, Vegas, how I'll miss you. Here's a recap of the best vacation ever taken. I'll skip the plane ride nonsense, because that's always boring. We got to the MGM Grand around 11:30 on our birthday. Ho. Ly. Shit. I knew it was mind-blowingly large and...

I did something completely ridiculous.

Well, last night was fun. Angie and I headed out to my parents house for our birthday celebration. My parents got me the awesomest present ever: an automatic, robotic vacuum cleaner. It rules outloud. I'm straightening my house later today so that the...

Sorry for the confusion

It was brought to my attention tonight that in my mentioning of a birthday party, some people read that as me having/throwing myself a "fun" birthday party with friends and beer and me being a general idiot in public. Alas, this wasn't my intention. 26...
