Happy Spring!

Tuesday, March 21st, 2006

I’m thinking of becoming a weatherman. We were supposed to get 8 inches of snow today. They had the stupid ‘Winter Storm Warning’ thing scrolling across the bottom of the TV all day yesterday. Schools were posting delays and closings as of last night. This morning they say ‘Well, we’re not getting as much as we thought… maybe just an inch or two.’ I actually got to work early today (side-effect of taking a 4-day weekend, I doubt I’ll make it a habit) and it hadn’t even started snowing yet. An hour later, and there’s about an inch on the ground here downtown.

Well it’s been about 3 months since I’ve put anything on here, so this will probably be long. I’ll try to break it up a little….

School: One more quarter. I’m actually on Spring Break right now (Wooo! Party!!!) Last quarter was decent – one “A” and two “B” I should have ended up with an A in stats too, but I just ran out of love for that class and bombed the last few weeks. Oh well. The other B was a pile of crap too – almost the entire grade was based on a group project, and my group was stupid. One more quarter, and it should be an easy one.

Just got done with a few days off work – nice 4 day weekend. Work is annoying me, I’m be glad when I get a different job. There’s one lady here that is just a complete pain in the ass – she puts everything off until the last minute, then demands I help her out of the mess she got herself into, and get snippy with me when I don’t. This last time, she tried to complain about me (said I had a negative attitude) but just ended up making herself look stupid. Maybe one of these days I’ll tell the whole story, it’s actually pretty funny.

Season is about ready to start. My reserve is being inspected and repacked as we speak. (Well, maybe not exactly at this instant, but it’s in my rigger’s possession) I’m looking forward to it – it’s been since late October that I’ve jumped.

Black for the PS2 isn’t that bad. Rent it though, don’t buy it. And Resident Evil 4 was really good – I need to rent that again to finish it. I can’t wait for the PS3 to come out. I played a Xbox 360 for the first time awhile ago – damn it’s pretty!

Watched a ton of movies lately. Not much else to do here during the winter. Jarhead and Murderball are about the only two ‘must see’ movies I’ve watched lately. Cinderella Man is close to making that group. Saw 2 wasn’t nearly as good as the first, but still decent – if you liked the first one, you’ll probably like this one. Final Cut and 28 Days Later were both worth a rent too. In the Mood for Love is probably a good movie, I just wasn’t in the mood for it (pun intended). Pushing Tin and Mighty Wind I would call rent-worthy as well, along with Lord of War. In the “Mindless eye candy” category we have The Island, – long on Special Effects, short on everything else. I think my postman is taking the movies I’m trying to send back and watching them first. If I mail the movies back at my house, it takes 3-5 days for them to get it. If I send it from work, it’s there in a day or two. I’m starting to wonder if I upset him somehow.

Sorry there’s nothing too exciting here… life is fairly boring at the moment. I think I need a vacation…
