Vince came over and we nerded till 2 AM. (on a school night!) The nerding included DDRMAX, Need For Speed, WC III, Jedi Outcast, many Euro music videos and lots of Crystal Lite for some reason. I installed the old realplayer 8. Realplayer 8 was evil, but the new Realplayer is just insane. They automatically check the “wanna buy a monkey” checkbox.
The wedding date is moved up to September 29. They checked out Vanessa’s dog at my apartment office and said the dog’s not too big to live there after we get married. Very excited and wishing it was even sooner but there are other scheduling constraints. Got wedding bands this weekend. Went to bible study. Helped Vanessa rebuild her mom’s swamp cooler. (Well, not really but there sure is a lot of work in replacing parts.)
Went to some seminar about how the houses in the upcoming development are built. I look forward to installing stuff from smarthome.com…like robotic sentries. Well, not really.
Ya know, these 80s radio stations remind me that there really is a lot of unpleasant 80s music. From Journey to John Cougar Mellencamp to Billy Joel. It wasn’t all cool synths and rhythms. I guess there have always been ballads but you can avoid them if you try…unless you have a girlfriend. 🙂 Ever notice that Belinda Carlisle sounds surprisingly like a chipmunk?
Hmm, disturbing new trends in spam…”You’ve received 2 free cruise tickets.” Doesn’t that push into the realm of fraud? The spammer seems to be in Russia though. Wonder if it’s smarter than the old “Here’s that e-mail you requested” thing. Oh well, just keep reporting spam to spamcop. Gotta love that site.
