The lan party was excellent. Not just because it was a kick ass time but because I got to meet some really cool people. They were very welcoming and putting faces to screen names is always a good thing. I took some pictures that are posted here.

The drive there was not bad at all. I do wish that I had gone to bed just a little bit earlier but that did not happen. I did however get everything packed up the night before so it was just jumping in the car and being on my way. The road was wet and it was rainy at times, but with all of that and following the posted speed limit I made it to Grand Rapids in just over two hours. Once there I set up and started gaming right away. Played UT the most, but my favorite multiplayer was FraCry… what a beautiful game. I did not play any RTS games, but did get to see a couple that will eventually be bought.

Another cool thing about the lan was the food. The lan was hosted at a church, so the church youth group was selling food and for 10 bucs you could buy all you can eat hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and pop. I jumped on that deal and eat like some of you know I am capable of.

Towards the end of the lan most of the people had left and there was about 20 people left and I was introduced to the crack of multyplayer games, countrestrike. Stay away from this game, it is not suitable for people with addictive personalities so please proceed with caution.

The drive home was not bad at all either, I was super tired but I had enough caffeine on me to keep me going. When I got home, I unloaded the car and hit the sack… it worked out good, because with the time change I think I might just be discombabulated enough from the weekend weird sleep times that I might not notice the clocks are different now.

Today I actually got to see SnkCrk and his wife, they came over for dinner and we hanged out and watched some TV. SnkCrk wife made a Botom cream pie that is probably making me gain a couple of pounds as I type but it was just awesome. So I had an awesome weekend how about you?

This weekend.

For the first time in years I might dress up for halloween. I still have to go find what I need for my c0stume, but I think I should be successful. It will be nothing to complicated but I think it will be pure hilarity.

Tonight will be preparation for tomorrow’s Lan party. I will be packing my computer. I am hoping that my c0stume will count. Don’t see why it would not. I think is an awesome costume. People that dress up get 3 bucks off… which is just about as much as I am going to spend of the costume.

The Lan party is actually a ways from here. Not terribly far, but I still got to wake up early and drive for a couple of hours. I have been playing games and chatting with some of the people for a little while so it will be cool to put faces to the screen names. I like meeting the people I talk to online IRL.

On other news I got a Sony NetMD as a present from a special friend, and it is kick @ss. I will have to post a picture of it later on! thanks again my friend. So what are your plans for this weekend? Are you dressing up? having a party?

The people that know me IRL(In Real Life) will tell you know much I value respect. I think if you asked me what trait I value most in a person, second to faith would have to be respect. The word respect to me means so many things it is hard to explain, it also has so many levels it cannot be contained in one post. I live my life with respect in mind, respect for myself, respect for others, respect for situations and even objects. Read more Respect

Car trouble

I have to vent about my car troubles, it is so frustrating to pay so much money for something that depreciates… specially when my car I have had so many problems with the engine.

Problem started about a year ago. The car would not engage reverse when cold, and when it did it would do so violently. Also it started slipping from 1 to 2, and eventually it would have trouble engaging every gear. So I take it to the dealer because the vehicle had a minor recall. I told them about the problem and their reply was simply we could not recreate the problem. Read more Car trouble
