Major, I say, MAJOR update

There was once a time when I actually looked forward to writing, now not so much. I’m just so damned busy anymore, that I hardly find the time. When I finally have some inspiration, I’m either driving or taking a shower.

So I’m going to do an update, Geek style. That means headings and sections and stuff. I promise no chart graph.


My wife and I are finally starting our diet for this year. I have about 20 lbs to lose, which shouldn’t be too bad. I’m not too comfortable with my weight, especially my stomach area, so this should help me get back into some kind of shape. We really need to get motivated to get out of the house. After our 8 hour workday, we are so damned tired. I know, if we worked out, we wouldn’t be so tired. Getting started is the tough part. We’ve started organizing our house, it’s gotten to that time. I’ve got a TON of stuff to post on eBay, and hopefully, it will all sell quickly. There is so much computer stuff in our basement that I could start my own vintage computer store 🙂


We got a new kitty. Her name is Kali, she is a Calico, and has been a holy terror ever since she walked through the door. She is getting better, now that she’s starting to pay attention, but for a while there my patience was zero. Noche is starting to play with her finally, so that’s nice. She was extremely pissy for a while and missing most of the time. Having a little fuzzy runt in the house is nice sometimes, but she can get into the worse places, like on my mouse pad. The whole getting up on tables will have to be dealt with swiftly.


I finally bought an AEG airsoft rifle, it’s a Both Elephant SL8.

I bought two of them because I wanted to get one for my friend’s birthday. When I finally got them, only one worked, and the other worked only for a couple of shots. I managed to get one of them repaired, but the other one is sitting at home waiting to be worked on. I’m confident I can get the gearbox shimmed properly so that it will be somewhat usable. I’m hoping the overtime I’ve put in at work will help me obtain my dream gun – an Echo-1 G36.

My Ghillie suit is coming along nicely. I haven’t had the inkling to work on it much this week, but I need to get it done so I can start using it, and mostly to get it out of the living room 🙂 I’ve always wanted one of these, and now I know why not many people have them. They are a BITCH and a half to make.


Work is going well, we had our Grand Opening last Saturday, which saw me awake and at the site at 5:45 am, so I only really got one day to my weekend. I’ll be doing the same thing again this weekend, but it’s cool. Once the PCs are working fine, there’s not much for me to do, which gives me time to enjoy the day and help out wherever I can. The auxiliary computer room is really warm, so I can’t go hide there for long. I’ve got to hand it to Dell though, they came through for me. I was looking at a ship date of 6/15/07, and I needed the PC’s by 6/8/07. One phone call later, and the Pc’s were at our door on the 5th.

Well, that’s pretty much it for now. Hang in there, I’ll post some pictures in the gallery soon.
