    Katie Andrews from No Ordinary Family, because she's just as much of a geek as I am, so conversation wouldn't be a problem, plus she's really cute and funny.

    Yesterday: I got off of work, then took the next available Caltrain to San Bruno where I met up with angry_wolfCarl, Dave, and moonwhispersBrian at the latter's house. Brian had made us all dinner (which was very tasty), and we ate it and geeked out about games and shit before watching Black Dynamite (their first time, my third). From there I rode with Carl to his place whereupon I watched some Sliders eps before falling asleep around 3 AM.

    Today: Woke up and watched more Sliders eps, then was treated to my second home cooked meal in as many days: breakfast ala C.J. We took turns playing some Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare, then went to the Tanforan theater and watched "Paul"... very geeky, so of course I loved it! After that we went back to Carl's, I watched another Sliders ep while he took a nap, then we headed to Peter's Cafe in Millbrae for dinner... I had their delicious Monte Cristo. From there we met up with djinnethGwynne, Eric, Will, Beth & J.C., and eventually Rudy for Gwynnie's birthday karaoke. Most of us then went to Rolling Pin Doughnuts in San Bruno for some late night noms, then even less of us left there and headed to Gwynne & Eric's for a bit before they dropped me off at home. Now, after a nice hot shower to warm up from the rain and cold I am about to get to sleep.

    I just read through every entry I posted during 2003 and realized that I missed writing in this damned thing. Not a whole lot has changed since the last time I posted (which was in October 2010), but let's see...

    I am no longer working in the front of the store ringing up customers. This has been a nice change, though it hasn't completely erased my job stress, but I prefer the new stress to the old. Anyway, what I'm doing now is packing the orders for drive-thru and sometimes ringing up, but for some reason ringing up in drive-thru isn't nearly as bad as the front was. And of course I'm frying fish etc. on Sundays.

    I've been keeping up on my t.v. shows using a combination of live broadcast, DVR, Hulu, and Netflix streaming (which is a lot easier to use with my PS3 working again!) and I am therefore never without entertainment, however I find that hanging out with friends such as angry_wolfCarl and moonwhispersBrian is just as, if not more, fun. As for movies, there are too many to name all the ones I want to see in the coming months, but most of them are from Marvel Studios, and include mutants, a Norse God, and a super-soldier from the 1940's.

    Speaking of the PS3, I currently own Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions, Tron: Evolution, and Gran Tursimo 5 Prologue, and I'm borrowing Transformers War For Cybertron. I plan to purchase Batman Arkham Asylum (and Batman Arkham City for that matter), Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, and SSX Deadly Descents at some point in the future, though I will most likely make myself wait until I finish the games I already have first.

    In a few weeks I am very much looking forward to attending WonderCon... I already have my ticket. Not much is known about programming (have to wait until Monday for more info) but WonderCon is always a blast for me. I will try to post to Facebook from the con as I get pics with celebrities or whatever.

    Okay... I have to be up fairly early for work so I'll end this here and really try to post more often in the future.

    So first of all, I finally got myself a PS3! The guy I am renting from (Bobby) is selling me his, which was supposed to be backwards compatible (and isn't), and I will be paying him $50 a month for the next 4 months. I am excited because now I can stream Netflix to my T.V., plus I'll be able to play Transformers War for Cybertron, Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions, and Batman Arkham Asylum. I'm not much of a gamer (compared to my friends) but those three games I would play.

    I had a fairly relaxing day off yesterday. I cleaned up my room a bit, did laundry, and ripped a bunch of CDs to my new computer's hard drive (I had transferred all the data from my old computer to the new one earlier this week). I got to meet Bobby's mom, who I will be paying rent to once he moves away. Unfortunately I hadn't showered or shaved yet so I hope I didn't make too bad of a first impression.

    Eventually, angry_wolfCarl came over and we ordered a pizza (which took an hour to arrive), then settled in to watch the Caprica episodes we hadn't seen yet. Later moonwhispersBrian came over and the three of us talked for awhile. It was nice having friends over, and I realized that I need to try and get away from Mountain View every once in awhile and be social. Anyway, while we were talking a strange thing happened with my vision. It started out small but it got worse... these floating lines of shimmering color in my left field of vision. They went away after awhile, but it was disconcerting. I tried showing the guys a couple of videos (which I'll embed below) and for some reason they weren't buffering correctly... in fact, even as I type this I've had internet issues, mostly trying to download & install the new release of Skype. Eventually Carl & Brian left and I watched Smallville and a few eps of Attack of the Show before heading to bed.

    Below are the two videos I was trying to show the guys. )

    Not much has happened since my last post...

    • I have been working six days a week. Getting close to 40 hours, which is nice, but I also miss having two days off a week.

    • Got my room pretty much the way I want it (although I could use a mini-fridge in here).

    • Finally got my hair cut... long overdue, I gotta say.

    • Not willing to wait until I transfer the data from my old computer to this one, I have taken to ripping my CDs a few at a time and I usually fall asleep to one playlist or another.

    • I've been going back and forth from enjoying being alone when I'm not working to wanting to be social.

    • Watched the following DVDs recently: "Greenberg", "Rashomon", "A Few Dollars More", "Batman - Under The Red Hood", and "The Experiment".

    • The DVR is now set to record the following shows: The Big Bang Theory, Shit My Dad Says, The Venture Bros., Caprica, Attack of the Show, No Ordinary Family, and Smallville.
