Spanish, Mars Rovers, Game Dev, What?

Well, I had my Spanish Oral Presentation today. I already got my grade. 34.2…out of 40. Not too bed. Certainly higher than I have come to expect from my endeavours in Spanish. I was the only one thus far to give my presentation from the front instruction desk of the …

Heffron!

Yesterday Corey and I had the wonderful opportunity of getting to see both Tammi Pescatelli and John Heffron, comics who were both on Last Comic Standing, at the Paramount Theatre in downtown Austin. I originally bought the tickets last Friday after being woken up Thursday to Mix 94.7 offering free …

4 more years.

Well, another election is over. Now I have 2 under my belt, but unlike last time, I feel a sense of what-if. I kinda wish it was like Star Trek sometimes, where we could just jump to some parallel dimension when things were slightly different – just to see how …

USPS. One sexy biatch.

I just realized while feverously trying to mail my cancellation request for a magazine subscription that some door to door salesman forced down my throat that the US Postal Service is actually pretty amazing. I can take my letter, poorly handwrite an address on it and in a few days …

Making the switch?

You know, there is something to be said for an operating system that is not just simple (for that’s not a fair judgement) or easy to use, but elegant. And the supreme irony of it all is that I few years ago I would never thought I would be saying …

Something good for humanity

I gave blood Tuesday. It’s been over a year since I have done so and I thought it was overdue. Ever since my mom fell ill my Sophomore year of High School I have really been able to see the reason in taking a mere 40 or so minutes out …

Renaissance Fair 2004

Last weekend Corey and I went to the Texas Renaissance Fair for the 4th year in a row. I guess at this point one might call it something of a tradition. If nothing else, the trip is worth it just to see Ded Bob. This time we actually ventured out …

Butterfly

k this post would have been longer if X11 had not crashed on my ass (hey it is a beta and it’s free). Oh well. In any case, I just finished watching the movie I had to watch for Spanish, and I have to say it was pretty good. Butterfly …
