Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer

Just Another Monday

I ended up staying late at work today. I was right in the middle of a project and couldn't find a good place to stop until it was pretty late. In some ways it's the same sort of thing I find with playing games, I just get into it and can't stop. Anyway, since I stuck around so late at work I decided to just skip the gym (rescheduled for tomorrow) and went over to jimbexleyspeed's place for Raw and Steak with jimbexleyspeed and eriker. I felt a little bad about skipping the gym but I really don't like being there for the prime time TV and decided to choose socializing with friends over it. I didn't really have time to pick up anything to grill (I'd actually forgotten about it until today) so I just picked up some fast food (including some chicken fries).

After the show I picked up some groceries then came home and finished up The Challenge Of Hades involving a lot of hopping and balancing and made my way to the Cliffs Of Madness (or something like that, maybe it was The Cliffs Of Insanity). Once I was done with that I worked on sorting and labeling my LeConte pictures from this year. I think I'm actually close to being done.

I'm sorely tempted to get one of these bracelets.

Weekend Update

Friday: Went to the gym, then came home and had monstersocks' leftover thai food for dinner. A little later I went over to eriker's birthday karaoke at Minnehaha Lanes. Sadly their website proved completely untrustworthy so several people got a little bit lost on the way and there wasn't really much to eat there aside from vending machine candy bars. A pretty good turn out and I think that one guy's rendition of Let's Get Physical will stay with me forever.

Saturday: Got up early, headed down to the MoA to pick up some doughnuts then went down to Shako to hang out with my old friends Zach (up to 5 kids now) and Fred (still at 1), have some burgers and play some videogames. We played a few games that I'd picked up a while back and never played like Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters, Jet Li: Rise To Honor and GameCube WarioWare. We also played some MK2, MK3 and Narc. On the way back I got stuck in a nasty traffic backup around 169 and 13. It took about twenty-thirty minutes to get through. I saw around twelve police cars and four wrecked cars. I made it to the tail end of eriker's birthday party and watched a couple episodes of B*llSh*t with eriker, komatoast and ladyslaughter. The PETA episode was pretty good but my opinion of them didn't really change much. I guess the fact that they euthanize dogs was a little surprising. And the part where they financially support animal rights terrorist groups.

Sunday: Dinner with monstersocks' family (at least the part that isn't in Russia right now).
