I have been quite the busy body today. I got up at 9am sharp, got cleaned up, then hit the town. I got on the trolley, rode for 45 minutes to my stop and picked up some cab coupons. With $160 of cab fare in my hand, I waited another 25 minutes for the same trolley to come back around. I rode it back to the hill below my apartment and sweated my butt off as I climbed said hill.
When I got home I popped in some Blue Collar Comedy and spent a few hours laughing my rear end off. Then I played some Ocarina of Time and killed time until a meeting at 4. After the meeting, I spent some time with Ferg watching “Whose Line is it Anyway?”.
Back at my apartment I shaved my beard in the style of a goatee due to request. After I did that and ate dinner I made a new wallpaper; Naruto style! It is of a young Kakashi. I put it on my deviant art account. You can get to it via my contact information page. I may be updating the look of my blog sometime in the future! Here is a small preview of my newly made wallpaper!
I am in the process of moving to a new apartment. I am very excited about this! All excited feelings aside, moving really does bite the big one. I have packed up so many boxes it’s not even funny. The good thing is I don’t have to unpack my boxes right away after I move; I can take my time and take a few days instead of go-go-going and do the dirty deed in one day. The hard part will be cleaning and moving furniture. I am hoping to get this all done in one day with the help of my parents. Hopefully it won’t take more than six to eight hours breaks permitting.
I found an old friend of mine on Facebook. We met in the 5th grade and graduated together. I lost touch with him shortly after high school. He went to Mizzou and some university in Madrid, Spain. I sent him a friend request; I hope he remembers me!
I am almost done with Naruto. I am very curious as to what happens to Orochimaru and his mysterious gang of sound ninjas. Oops, I hope I didn’t spoil anything there! I am on episode 140 out of 220. I tend to knock out 12-15 episodes every Sunday as part of my lazy Sunday schedule. Not this Sunday, though, I have to finish moving! I will post another round as soon as I am settled in. Pics will be shown!
Hanukkah is still going on—day six; Saturday night was the big celebration in the household. There was tons of food to be eaten! There was matza balls, latkes, hummus, cheese, green beans, and much more! There were around twenty to twenty four people in this tiny household. After the food and drink, there were gifts. I scored a huge gift card for Amazon.com. I had a great time visiting my family, it’s a shame that I only get to visit every six months to a year at a time!
I know I said that I would wait until January to see Episode VIII, but my Aunt and Uncle wanted to see it this weekend. I absolutely loved it. It kept you on your seat for a good chunk. The ending was okay I guess. I won’t spoil anything for those that actually read this blog and haven’t seen it yet.
I have been sick with food poisoning for the past few days. As a result, I have been out of the gym for some while. Today I didn’t feel like lifting weights, riding a bike, or swimming. Instead I decided to join the rest of the group and play volleyball. The group has been bugging me to play with them for quite some time. I finally gave in and had a great time! I felt kind of dizzy on the last game and had to sit out. I blame being slightly dehydrated from the food poisoning.
Since I have been down for the count for the past while, I haven’t been able to game all that much. I am going to Kansas City, MO to celebrate Hanukkah with my Jewish family up North. I won’t be able to really game until next Wednesday.
This past Thursday I went to the Neosho Fishing Hatchery in Neosho, Missouri. At first I thought that it was going to be a boring, run of the mill, trip to see a bunch of lame fish. Boy howdy was I wrong! I have never seen a full grown sturgeon until now. Those things can grow to be huuuuuuuge! I wonder how aggressive they are; there were also large and small mouth bass in the same tank. There was a pond where you can feed the fish. There were bass and rainbow trout in the pond, I didn’t see any sturgeons in the pond. You were allotted two cups of food. I took my time feeding the suckers bit by bit at first, but then I tossed an entire cup in the pond at once. It was like watching a royal rumble XD. There were also a few huge tanks full of minnows–they were cute :).
I need ideas for a project in either Java or Python. My bot idea flopped because I have no idea what to add to it. Weather bots and trivia bots are so cliched. I am thinking of a simple game where the guy just jumps over obstacles, but that’s been done to death, too. It’s gotta be something in Java or Python, I don’t find much interest in C#, C++, C or the like. I am more comfortable in Python and am getting used to Java. Just pitch me some ideas on Facebook, shoot me an e-mail or use any other contact methods.
I finished watching a mini-series called Sinner. It came on USA and lasted eight episodes. I am not going to go into much detail about it other than it kicks some serious ass. Informaiton can be found right here: http://www.usanetwork.com/thesinner
Now it is time for some TV. New seasons on great and new shows are coming on tonight!
