Sleepy Sunday

Went to East Lansing yesterday. It was fun, saw a friends band play (ther are from Chicago but played a gig out here) Egostatic. They did an excellent job, despite the poor sound equipment the place had.

On the way to the bar, we stopped at Jim’s house. Who has a new baby. I will make a page for the baby once I have more pictures. Jim is one of Mike’s college friends, that is how I got to know him.

After Jim’s we stopped at BD’s Mongolian BBQ for dinner. One of my fav places.

The Venue for the concert was spacious, and the people were 90% college age. Over all I think it was good exposure for the band. I had a good time and I think that is what matters the most. Check out their site and download teenage lust. Kick ass track

Finally got the pictures up

Well, last night was fun. Bogs is getting closer to finish un the design of the new skin for the site. Also played some more gunbound and actually got some free armor. Finally got to put the picutures I want it up, including some of my pet pics, recent snow pics, and my latest gaming system that bogs help me build.

It was colder than it has been a long time this morning, so much that my nostrils felt like they were getting ice inside of them. Thank God and technology for remote start. The drive to work was good, the sun was out and that is a super A++++ a la ebay. One thing I really like about Michigan is its openness, and how you can see sky for days. Sometimes the clouds sit just right and it is almost like I have mountains around me once again. I grew up in a valley right in between the Andes, and growing up with mountains all around you is awesome. You do not realize how used to you get to the mountains and how they give you a cozy feeling untile you move to the midwest and there is just no end to the sky. I will be in Colorado soon for business, and it is always cool to go there just for the mountains. I will be also be visiting my buddy Billy, he is in the Airforce Academy causing trouble :) hopeully he does not get himself in too much trouble so we can have some fun.

So what is today?

Thursday I think, I hate when I cannot keep the days straigh. Stayed up too late playing gunbound again. Well, Bogs is trying to really help me out with the design of my page, and I think we made some progess yesterday. He hates the current design, so hey, you are a designer, do something bettter, right. I was going to upload some pictures today, but I don’t have my mem card reader here… tought I did, but is somewhere at home, or at least I hope.

I need to start remembering to post at night, so I can actually get into my usual non stop blabering, posting at work is no fun because all I do is think about what I am working on, and the 5 min break that this is supposed to be, turns into, lets try this or that. Programming isn’t fun. I wish I could turn it off sometimes, but I just deal with it, the non stop wheels turning in my head trying to make a program run, or get that last bug out.

Today was a bla day

Today was uneventful. Except for a car that had ran off the road due to the snow this morning, not much has happened. We are supposed to get like 8 inches. It should be fun driving home.

I was just thinking today about this blog. I would not even think of putting work related stuff here, but what about personal stuff… friend names, etc. Well, I guess what I will do is just put stuff until someone gets pissed of.

Yesterday was actually very eventful. Got to the Gym (been a nut about the elyptic running machine) again and did an hour workout. Trying to get out there 5 days a week. Then I got home about 5 mins late to a game of AoK. A real strategy game. Bogs(my best friend) and I have been playing with Mike(the dude with the farm animal fetish) and Jim (one of Mike’s college buddies), and getting our butts kicked. But finally Bogs kicked it into high gear and we wooped ass. I have tons of fun playing games. Just not enough time to play them. I still have 6 PS2 games that I’ve yet to open and about 8 Gamecube ones, is almost like I need a vacation just to play video games.

Ladies and Gentleman, I live in Michigan

Last week I saw a really cool thing driving to work, It was snowing where I was at, but if you look at the horizon you could see the sunset in all its splendor. The sky had this awesome orange tint to it. It was really beautiful. I do not like Orange as a color, probably the reason I am not running out to go hunting… but in nature any color can be so magnificent.

Well today I am driving to work and it is snowing so heavy that you can barely see the car in front of you. I do not mind the cold, or the winter too much, I can even stand the snow. What I really miss during the winter is the sun. I think that is probably why I decided to upload another album. My sister and her family went to Cancun in 2003.

At first moving to Michigan was tough, in part because it felt like a vacation. Not having my family here is tough beyond words at times. Despite the weather, Michigan and this area is really warm because of its people. I have encoutered nothing but genuine people, even if they are pissed off, they do not make excuses about it and are up front. I think that is an excellent thing.

Now, I am just longing for the time I spent on Cancun and seeying the pictures of my sister’s trip makes me want to go there again. Well next vacation will be Vegas for one of my friend’s wedding, and that should defenetly take me away from the cold weather. Maybe rent a bike and do some riding out there.
