This is an archive of my twitter from July 2009.

I just woke up, and am now heading to eat at Hooters with the boys. Being a freelancer RULES.

I tried that at my last full-time job. I think that may be why I'm a freelancer now.

A charity that I maintain the website for (for free) was written up in the paper and another firm given credit. Ouch.

Wed Jul 01 21:11:50 +0000 2009

All this week I've actually stopped working at around 11 and found time to relax. Is this the "work/life" balance I've heard about?

Thu Jul 02 03:57:34 +0000 2009

Note to self: Never use NewEgg's "shipping saver" or whatever again. A savings of $4 is not worth an additional 8 days of delivery time.

Thu Jul 02 18:09:07 +0000 2009

It's been a long week of long days, but still plenty of relaxing time in there too. Life rules and its only gettin' better.

Quite the view from our hotel room.

Sat Jul 04 20:34:30 +0000 2009

Oh yeah, we're in the big city of Annawan, IL for a wedding.

Sat Jul 04 20:36:13 +0000 2009

Steve McNair's death is made weirder because my first real boss shared his name. Along with Dave Barry. What a weird coincidence.

Sun Jul 05 01:16:08 +0000 2009

Hardcore boozin and lovin every second, but where's the fireworks? Happy birthday America!

Sun Jul 05 02:06:08 +0000 2009

Wow, super lazy day today, laziest I've had in a long time. And I love it.

Sun Jul 05 23:53:45 +0000 2009

Why is the grocery store so busy at 10 am? Note to self, keep coming at 10 pm to avoid crowds.

Setting up the worlds trashiest and most fun carnival.

@scottEweinberg Hey man, I'd like to talk to you about Horror Squad. Do you have an email address I can reach you at?

Mon Jul 06 18:39:27 +0000 2009

Hillary's car insurance/car accident mess is finally almost done after just 4 months in insurance hell. The result: $2,500 smackers!

Mon Jul 06 20:40:09 +0000 2009

I'm glad @luomat is blogging for TUAW, because it means I'm finally not the new guy anymore.

Any of my followers who are Loveline fans and iPhone/iPod touch users, this new site (yes, its mine) is for you:

I got one of these guys: Kinda pricey compared to the Flip, but worth it if you ask me.

"Die You Zombie Bastards" is a diamond in the rough. PS, can we talk about Horror Squad sometime? Email is wasson at gmail.

Wed Jul 08 04:04:44 +0000 2009

The movie Shrooms ruled until the end. Stupid contrived twist ending. Just like High Tension, lop the end off and it's all good.

Thu Jul 09 04:21:16 +0000 2009

I'm smoking a cigar while picking up dog crap in my yard. This is the life, my friends.

Thu Jul 09 19:15:53 +0000 2009

@radjose you need to tweet more buddy.

Thu Jul 09 19:22:40 +0000 2009

I use Windows via Parallels about 10 minutes a day to test a few sites, only visiting sites I've created. And yet, somehow, it got a virus.

Thu Jul 09 20:51:02 +0000 2009

Do I seriously need to download a Java applet to download Windows 7? Jesus, it's like Microsoft is trying to be a sucky pain in the ass.

No, I just thought they'd learn some lessons with Vista and make 7 installation, ya know, pleasant. Guess not.

You tell me why your battery is so stellar! My 2G would go about 2.5 days, my 3GS is down to about 30% when I go to bed.

There's many films we need to talk about brotha. I have a new project to talk to you about when I'm done getting married.

Also, are you resurrecting the horror podcast?

A client is buying me Vista so that I can figure out a strange bug on his Vista/IE7 system. It feels wrong, but I can't turn down free stuff

Am I the only one who loves it when my odometer is a palindrome?

One week from today I'll be marrying the love of my life, @hillarymyers. And she'll need to change her twitter handle to @hillarywasson.

That was to see a GOOD movie, not Harry Potter.

Brooke Knows Best has to be the absolute worst show in the history of television.

Sun Jul 12 19:29:40 +0000 2009

Stressful day so far, but I'm not gonna let it get me down. Time to try to inject some fun back into my day.

Mon Jul 13 19:58:20 +0000 2009

I have one more hour to try to squeeze some fun out of an otherwise crappy day.

My pleasure brotha. Hope you get some enjoyment out of it.

Tomorrow I'm going to Vegas to get hitched. If I were any geekier (or thought anyone would be interested) I'd totally live tweet the event.

Wed Jul 15 03:33:40 +0000 2009

I'm letting the wife-to-be pack all the unimportant stuff like clothes and hygiene products. I'm sticking with gadgets and their chargers.

Wed Jul 15 15:22:21 +0000 2009

Ready for Vegas.

Wed Jul 15 18:22:14 +0000 2009

We got a row to ourselves in the front of the plane. As close to 1st class as it gets on this trip. Thanks nice ticket lady!

Wed Jul 15 18:25:49 +0000 2009

Vegas baby!

Wed Jul 15 23:24:05 +0000 2009

The view from the hot tub in our suite.

Thu Jul 16 00:39:35 +0000 2009

For the hotties.

Fremont Street!

Broken shower in our sweet suite ain't gonna get me down. Partying in Vegas like a mofo. And @radjose is my best best man. Love ya bud!

Thu Jul 16 22:31:44 +0000 2009

Just saw the Cirque show, Love. Absolutely INCREDIBLE.

Fri Jul 17 06:18:56 +0000 2009

Wow, AT&T sucks even more in Vegas than it does in Illinois. Suck it, AT&T.

Fri Jul 17 17:59:58 +0000 2009

I didn't think I'd get nervous, but the butterflies have hit my stomach pretty hard. Trying to get some sleep but I'm too antsy.

Sat Jul 18 16:26:16 +0000 2009

I'll be married in like 5 hours. Crazy!

Sat Jul 18 16:26:57 +0000 2009

I'm now a married man. The ring will take a little getting used to, but what a great day!

Sun Jul 19 17:13:30 +0000 2009

Thanks to everyone who made our day special with being there, phone calls, text messages, Twitters, emails and facebook messages.

yep, Vegas wedding! We were married in the chapel at Luxor. It was beautiful!

Mon Jul 20 05:27:44 +0000 2009

Just got back from a horseback ride through Red Rock Canyon. It was probably my favorite part of the trip so far (except for the marriage).

Mon Jul 20 05:28:58 +0000 2009

In Baker CA checking out the giant thermometer, then on to LA to be nerdy tourists. This honeymoon rules!

Mon Jul 20 20:49:31 +0000 2009

My ass still hurts from the horseback ride. Yesterday was a whirlwind tour of LA, and today is Disneyland!

You also have to change your email address, Twitter, Facebook and MySpace accounts. It's not true until the internet says so.

After nearly 12 hours of sleep, I feel like i've mostly recovered from the trip. Married and never been happier!

Back to work. Sad face.

Photoshop is totally freaking out trying to piece together a panorama or 2 I took while in Vegas. I hope my computer doesn't explode.

I seem to have made it out alive with 1 beautiful panoramic of the Paris hotel to show for it. Phew!

My stupid dog keeps barfing and, of course, hunts for the carpet to puke on no matter how close the tile is.

Wed Jul 29 03:50:28 +0000 2009

First I fell in love with Windows 7 Media Center, then heard Me First and the Gimme Gimmes on a Bing ad. Am I starting to love Microsoft?

Wed Jul 29 03:55:30 +0000 2009

And for my very last nerdy post of the day, iGoogle now has Superman themes. Have I mentioned I love Superman?

Wed Jul 29 03:56:21 +0000 2009

What's that? You need a recommendation on a fantastic but also somewhat twisted horror flick? I submit Deadgirl. Wow.

Almost done with my TUAW article starting my weight-loss experiment. Maybe with an audience reading about my fatness I can lose the weight?
