Christmas' Right Around the Corner

It's the day before Christmas eve. Actually, now that I look at my clock, I realize that technically, it is Christmas eve. As much as I look forward to Christmas, I can't help but feel a little upset. I look out the window, and there is now snow at all. we've had maybe two snowfalls this year, and neither of them stuck around. On Friday it actually rained. My music teacher had "I'm dreaming of a wet Christmas" written on his board. The Forecast actually calls for rain tomorrow(or would that be today? ugh.. I gotta start going to bed before midnight, It's a lot less confusing). Nothing says global warming like rain on Christmas eve. Especially in Canada. Just a couple hours north of where I live, a couple weeks ago, they had a pretty good snowstorm with a couple feet of snow. In Denver the airports are closed for snow. If people won't try to stop global warming for the sake of the environment, then how about for the sake of a traditional white Christmas. I'm sorry, I know, I'm complaining again, aren't I? On the upside, The next few days are supposed to be full of fun, if not snow. And new years is coming up as well. I promise that my next post will have 0% complaining.

You might not hear from me for a while...


Yet Another Post. This Time I Have News!

Something entirely unexpected happened last Monday (Dec 4/06) - I, of all people, now have a girlfriend. I have to tell you, that came out of left field. She can be found online as Erana on deviant art. Not much else besides that, but I think anyone's first girlfriend can be considered worthy of their blog. Especially since I usually write about nothing.

Christmas is right around the corner. I already know what I'm getting. My parents gave me my gift early, as it was half Christmas half birthday, and my birthday was in august. My grandma tried to give me her gift early too. But I guess there are still some surprises. But that's not what Christmas is about is it? I need to figure out what to get everyone else.

Don't things normally fly into left field?


I Got One!

As many of you probably know, Sunday was the release day of the Nintendo Wii. On Monday I thought I had no chance of getting one, but on Friday my grandma talked me into waiting in line. I'm glad I did. It is 100% awesome. I did have some trouble with the controller that came with it, whenever I hooked up a nunchuck it would act up and intermittently lose it's connection to the Wii. (I just have to find something to complain about, don't I?) It turned out to just be that particular controller and I have since replaced it and have had no trouble. I just wish I had high speed so I could get the Wii Connect 24 thing going. Oh well... someday I will get it. I also got a copy of Twilight Princess, and haven't been able to put it down since. I haven't been on the computer in almost a week now, which is odd for me. Well, I just had to tell everyone so thanks for reading. Hopefully I can think of something better to write next time.

Maybe I should put down the Wii and get some homework done... hmmmm...


First Comment!

I've been meaning to post for a few days now. The only real reason is that I'm proud to announce that at least one person has at least noticed this blog in passing and has decided to comment. It's good to know that this isn't a complete waste of time. Halloween has passed, and I ended up staying home. No one trick-or-treats by my house, so I didn't get to give out candy either. I decided to take another whack at Majora's mask, in anticipation for the Sunday after next. That's the nineteenth, official launch date for the Wii. Personally I can't wait. I just hope I can manage to get one on the launch date, I don't think I could wait for the next shipment. Well, that's all for now enjoy yourselves.

ever been thrown without warning into a chat room on MSN? It's very disorienting.


It's Been a While...

It's been almost a week since my last post. Partly due to lack of things to blog about, partly due to lack of time to blog in. Not much has changed since my last post, I'm still looking for a Halloween costume, and I better hurry, I have a Halloween party to go to tomorrow. I'm thinking of going as a hacker(cracker), the kind you see on TV, the guys who use the computer to spy on corporations and enemies, and despite the fact of being miles away from the place they are spying on, still feel the need to keep in shape and dress all in black, as if that makes their computing stealthier. Either way I think it would make a neat costume. I'm going to dress all in black, and spike my hair, but not so that it sticks up, but so that it hangs down in groups/cones. I have a small hand-held computer (a Cybiko for anyone who's ever heard of one). I intend to carry around with me. I also have a pair of yellow motorcycle glasses for night that look geeky yet cool at the same time. Until next time. See Ya.

I'll hack you... watch - 10010010000011111010010100101010101010100120101010101010... yeah... have a good Halloween


Halloween is Fast Approaching

It's already the 18th of October, Halloween is only 13 days away. Normally by now I'd have my costume all figured out, or at least have an idea of what I intend to go as. This year, Zilch. The fact that my costume budget this year is all but non-existent doesn't help much. I have a pretty freaky mask I could use, but I've used it two years ago, and didn't see anyone in the Halloween in between, so I would more or less be using the same costume twice in a row, and aside from the mask the costume wasn't that great. I've considered the possibility of going as Sam Fisher, but I don't have even part of the costume, so I hit the budget problem. I guess I need to stop thinking "What do I want to dress up as" and then putting together a costume. I really need to look at what I have lying around and put something together from that. Maybe I could just go as some generic spy and put together an easier costume that way, maybe even turn some of the random electronic parts I have lying around into a fancy prop? I guess the possibilities are endless, so at least one possibility has to be good, right? I guess I'll just have to wait and see.

BOO!!!!! hah haha ha haa... yeah...


Let's Talk TV... Or something.

Sorry I didn't post yesterday, but there are some days when you just can't get to the computer. Anyways, I'm thinking about not posting every day any way (see last post). Not much going on right now. Well I shouldn't say that, there is a lot going in the world, but that stuff is all over the news, so there's no point putting it here. There's nothing on TV tonight, unless house is on. You ever notice how some nights there are so many good shows on that you have to pick a few and completely miss out on the rest? Today all anyone was talking about was "hero's." of course, I chose to watch Dr. Who instead. Of course tonight there is almost nothing on. House used to be on on Tuesdays, but it hasn't been lately, although I have seen it on on Mondays (Like I'll ever get to see any more of it now!). Wednesday isn't bad, there's one show on for every hour of TV my family watches. That's the way it should be. Thursday's are Tuesday all over again. Never watch anything on Friday, usually rent a movie on Saturday, and catch Monty Python's Flying circus at 11:00. There's a few good shows on Sunday too.
I have no idea why I just listed the weeks TV schedule, maybe it's just that whenever I run out of things I turn to TV, but usually quoting episodes, not listing schedules. Oh well... Until next Time.

To post daily or not to post daily? That's my question. For now anyway.

Today, again, was fairly uneventful. We're trying to sell our house, and people keep wanting to see it on short notice. Like just this morning my dad was talking on the phone. When he got off the phone, there was a message from our real estate agent saying to call him. By the time we got a hold of him, the people who wanted the house had called him back saying that it was too late, and they couldn't come see the house. So these people wanted too, at 10:00 in the morning, on a Sunday, call the real estate agent and get a viewing of the house within the hour. There was still the chance they might call back so we had to clean the house, then at around 2:00 I got to go hang with my cousins. I also got some great news, it turns out high speed internet is finally available in my area, actually it has been for about a year and a half now. The guy at the service desk was just telling us we were a bit out of range and needed to wait a few months for another tower to be built. ahhh c'est la vie , I guess. (did I spell that right?). So as soon as one of my dad's clients decides they feel like paying him, we're getting it. My dad has a small business that does work for other businesses. Lately he's been working 80 hour weeks, and no-one feels like paying him. Sorry, I guess I haven't really done anything but complain have I? Probably not the best way to attract readers. It's a habit I need to get rid of. Sorry for the lousy post, I'll try to make them more positive in the future. Maybe I shouldn't post every day, but only when something interesting happens. Or maybe I can fill my posts with pointless chatter like "I saw a funny movie last night" what do you think?

I really did see a funny movie last night.


All alone, me my thoughts, and a set of controllers

Well, it's been an uneventful Saturday. My brother's away in Indiana for the weekend, which is more of a relief than a problem. Personaly, I feel like I'm wasting the day. I got up around noon, which i hate doing because that's half a day gone, of course on saturdays it's worse as you miss all the cartoons. I woke up in a mood to play video games, but do you think I could find anyone to play with? Even if my brother were here, he hates multiplayer games. he especialy hates playing against me because 90% of the time, no matter what game, I kick his but. So I decided to ask my parents if one of them wanted to play one of the easy cooperative games (4 swords) with me. Of course, my parents feel that playing games are a waste of their time. My dad would rather do something more constructive and my mom would rather read a book. Personally I feel a good game is like a good book. Most of the same elements are there, but you usually have to think more and can actually explore the setting a bit. Which makes me think, a good game, like a good novel, needs a deep story line, what bugs me is people who decide how good a game is based on graphics and would rather buy a realistic looking game with a cheap storyline then a cartoony game with a deep story line. The realistic game is like a picture book and the cartoony game is like a novel, but people playing the realistic game (picture book) look at the cartoony game (novel) and call it childish. Now don't get me wrong, their are alot of games that have a great balance between looks and story, and of course some great books have illustrations (Sherlock Holmes) and there are alot of cartoony games that have horrible story lines, and some pretty bad novels. And none of this takes into account game play; ever tried to read a novel when the pages are glued together? But that's just what i think. Anyway, I never did find anyone to play games with, it's just not that kind of day. My n64 crashed twice on me so I gave up trying to play games and went on the computer which is probaly why I did a blog entry today. I'm gonna stop now as it seems I'm starting to ramble. Enjoy your weekend.

Monty Python's Flying Circus is on Tonight! HOORAY!


My First Post - Ever

It seems like nowadays everyone has a blog, or myspace acount. An online identity. I finaly decided that it's time i jump on the bandwagon. I find i constantly have ideas i want to write down. most of them in no way usefull to me. Some of them i feel are pretty good, but i don't have the follow through to make anything of them. I finally decided that i was getting tired of putting them in a notebook, where only I, the person who has no use for them, would ever read them. It seemed kind of pointless to me. I've started this blog as a way to share my ideas, get feed back, and still remain anonymous. Well, mostly. Anyone who knows me knows that i use Cyborg_572 everywhere online. It's even my username on my DS. (That's right Nintendo all the way!). I hope you'll read this and comment back. I'll try my best not to annoy anyone. Of course, sometimes i might just write something for the heck of it, and some of it probably won't be worth reading, but hey, If you don't like it, then there's a little arrow at the top of your screen you should try clicking.

note - if the background is black, then a link has messed up. please add a "www." after the "http://" or click here

I'm so nervous about pressing that "Publish" button.
