Alright here's a

Alright, here's a completely geektastic post. I hope you all enjoy it. Attention Verizon Wireless subscribers: The big V, otherwise known as the greatest cell phone provider on planet earth, is now offering unlimited pic/text messaging for a measely...

So on my

So on my jog yesterday, I was jogging down the alley towards the park when I spotted the sweetest piece of garbage that someone was just tossing away! I couldn't believe it. So I finished my run and picked it up on the way and took it home. And its...

Well last night

Well, last night pretty much ruled. It was back to Kouris for the first time in several months with Polk, The Brandon, Kristi, and Jess. We saw Jen and Mel and Mr. Conley and all was well with the world. It was nice to be outside, back at the restaurant...

Ya know I

Ya know, I appreciate the City of Peoria being worried about our safety during the massive 74 project and all, but I can't help but think that assigning crossing guards is a bit of an overkill. It's odd walking across the street, being closely followed by...

I went running

I went running with my new running shoes yesterday. I didn't realize what a pleasure running could be! Seriously, these new shoes rock. I didn't think they'd make much of a difference for me. Also, for the remainder of my Biggest Loser competition at...

So the weekend

So, the weekend, from the top. Friday I got off work, ran for a few miles, then went to Webbs to meet Polk, Brandon, Kristi, and Jess for some dinner. After that I went home and went to bed. Saturday I took a long ass run with Angie, followed by a long...

Believe it or

Believe it or not, I'm registered to run in Steamboat Days. It's a 4 mile or 15K (9.3 mile) race. I never, ever, ever, ever thought I would run in a race "competitively", but here I am. My goal is 35 minutes for the 4 mile, which isn't very lofty or...

Last night I

Last night I was one of the lucky chosen few who got to bartend at a special event held here at work. I'd never bartended before, and my skills at mixing drinks aren't quite well developped, but I had a great time with it all. Anyway, the event was a...

This weekend was

This weekend was awesome. I kicked it off on Friday with dinner at the Patio Inn with Polk, The Brandon, Wolfie, Kristi, and Jess. Dinner was free for me because I'm slick and forgot they didn't take credit cards. Oops. I turned down the invitation to Sin...

I'd hoped it

I'd hoped it was an April Fool's Day joke, but the article Wolfie linked to appears to be written before April 1st. It looks like my  favorite stand up comic has kicked the bucket, way before his time. It's a sad day. I'll now leave you with my...

Is winter done

Is winter done with us now? After a few absolutely gorgeous days, the wind picked up and brought with it an awesomely fun hail storm and torrents of rain. The whole office building was creeped out by the hail hitting our huge sunlight that covers the...

I got this

I got this mailer in the... um... mail the other day, promising me a $100 Wal-Mart gift card to listen to a presentation about the benefits of replacement windows. Ignoring the fact that I plan on replacing the windows and even if I wasn't, my uncle owns a...

I got to

I got to sleep in nice and late on Good Friday, then went for my 3 mile jog. I like to take along Winnie, but by the end of the second mile, she's about ready to quit. I have to leave her at home now, which breaks my heart. Anyway, after the jog I went to...

Well I'm less

Well, I'm less of a geek than I used to be. Remember that one time I went on live, national television for an interview? Well, the show that had me on has changed channels, formats, and now, changed names. It's not even the same show, and will be removed...

So how bout

So how bout this beautiful Spring weather, huh? When I think Spring, I think 30 degrees and snowing. I guess I shouldn't complain, since the longer it stays cold the longer I get to wear my new(ish) coat. In a little over a month, I'll have been at my new...

I'm not sure

I'm not sure if I've just killed my tastebuds with meal after meal of Lean Cuisine, or if the dinner I had last night was as perfect as it seemed to be, but Jesus... Lean Cuisine turkey bites with mashed potatoes and gravy is like heaven on a little...

I don't think

I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say my new website is the sweetest website in the history of the planet. [tim.cx][1] [1]: http://www.tim.cx/

I had just

I had just gotten back from my jog last night when Alan called me asking if I wanted to play badmitton. Of course, I couldn't refuse. Jenny and Ben were already there, and of course so was Emily. So I cracked open a beer and played some one-handed...

For those interested

For those interested in their credit report and want a better, free alternative to FreeCreditReport.com, there's a new service at annualcreditreport.com which allows free credit reports from the major 3 unions for free once per year. It doesn't include...

Alan and Angie

Alan and Angie came over last night to watch The Incredibles. I spent the rest of the evening setting up a computer for a near stranger. So I'm about 2 or 3 months away from financial freedom, and I feel like those cheese ball debt consolidation...
