Another one down…

Seems like the summer months just pass faster than the winter ones. July 31st and another summer is waning. Not much going on other than work and video games. Work on my part and video games on Jesse’s. Though I must admit to playing a classic game at night. They opened a Gamestop here in AV and we were among the first to visit. Pretty amazing to see the place with all games in Alphabetical order and with titles that are hard to find. So I coughed up the money for the Ocarina of Time on Gamecube which contained the unreleased MasterQuest version. Nothing like wandering around Hyrule and killing skulltulas to pass the time. I now return you to your regularly scheduled program.

Rage Against The Waters!

Yesterday we traveled to San Dimas and went to Raging Waters(a la Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure). We enjoyed ourselves and went on a few of the slides, the lazy river and spent the majority of our time in wave pool as it’s Jesse’s favorite. Today, we are all nursing sunburns with Jesse getting the worst of it. Nothing like bringing home souveniers you didn’t pay for.

It was nice to escape the Mojave even for only a day. The water was great and crowds were not too bad compared to Hurricane Harbor at Magic Mountain. Stopped for dinner at Panera on the way home which is also a plus.

It’s Raining Again!

That strange liquid that falls from the sky came down upon us today for the first time in a long while. Last year was the driest year on record so maybe this early rain means we won’t have a repeat. Now all we have to do is watch out for dry strikes, the main cause of desert fires. Our evaporative cooler doesn’t work when the humidity is up, but the cloud cover should keep the temps down a little.

Stopping by Apu’s for a Squishee.

This was fun to do, but the site kept messing up as I figure its hammered with visitors. Wouldn’t let me save my guy no matter how many times I tried so I ended up downloading him. Check it out if you have braodband at . Saw it on Scott Kelby’s blog and ended up trying for hours to get the site to cooperate. If you go, have some time to kill.

Rant about!

Okay I finally had enough and yanked my account from It’s a scam I just don’t want my name associated with. For one, I am tired of the tons of pop-ups they generate on the web. For two, you can’t get anymore info on old classsmates for free than if I just walk to the shelf and open my yearbook. If you really want to find out about me, Google my name and find me that way. Classmates gets you to sign-up in a peer pressure way by listing the names of everyone else that is on it already. After you sign-up, you get a boatload of e-mails and cannot find a single thing out unless you agree to pay their “Gold Member” access fee. I for one am fed up with them. Just because they have my info doesn’t mean I am ok with using it to pry a buck out of someone else who wants to find out about me. If you really want to find out about me, visit my website or better yet, send me an e-mail. For Free!! No Gold Memebership needed!

Random thoughts in July!

Not much going on other than the daily grind and heat. Got a watermelon on Tuesday for donating blood and ran into one of my classmates from high school. Her dad was one of my teachers and her parents owned the local music store. It was good to catch up with her and walk down memory lane. Got a funny spam-mail in my work e-mail today. The sender was Jesus and the subject was blank. Needless to say I had a good laugh at the gibberish that followed as it was the typical spam mail utilizing random phrases and words in no coherent order. The Lord knows where I live and can speak directly to my heart wihtout the need of e-mail. Made me laugh anyway. If you have a broadband connection and want to waste a few minutes got to and get to know Mr. Fastfinger. Take the Mountian of the Tapping Dwarves section. Have fun and a laugh while ripping some major riffs on your keyboard. Well, that’s all for now. Riggety, Riggety, Roll or Rock, Rock On whichever floats your boat.

More than meets the eye!

Wow! We went to see Transformers yesterday and it was my favorite movie of the summer so far. We saw Spiderman 3, Pirates 3 and Fantastic Four 2, but this one blew me away. Talk about action packed. I could have done without the cursing and bathroom humor, but I found it a much more exciting movie than the other three we have seen this summer. Next up on our summer to see list will be the Simpsons movie.
