Update 4/1/10

1.  Enjoying my second day off.  Weather couldn’t have been better if I wanted it to be.

2.  Trying to take apart the server rack today.  Why can’t anything be easy.

3.  Spent the majority of time watching a Merlin marathon on SyFy.  New season starts tomorrow.

4.  According to the Library I no longer exist.  Just used my card to pay a fine a couple weeks ago, but as of today I was no longer in the system.  Had to register again.

5.  Got back into the gym yesterday and am going again tomorrow.  Hopefully this is the start of lifting regularly again.

Update 3.1.10

1.  I have started back to school and that has been consuming much of my time lately.  I have already fallen slightly behind but should be fully caught up with things tomorrow.  This always seems to happen.  No matter how much I say I won’t, I always wait until the last possible second to start assignments.  This always ends badly as they end up taking longer than I anticipate and I have to turn something in late.

I also always say I am going to do the assigned reading but never do.  This is the main reason assignments end up taking longer than I think they will.

2.  Zoie’s 1st birthday is tomorrow.  We have a little party planned for her this coming Saturday.  Should be fun.

3.  Spent the last two weeks watching as much of the Olympics as I could.  For some reason I have been addicted to the past two Olympic games.  I find myself watching any sport that is on, whether I actually like it or not.  Short track speed skating is definitely my favorite event.

4.  Still trying to get back in the gym but have yet to manage it.  Will update when that happens.

Thursday October 8th

1.  We just completed the move into a new apartment at the end of last month.  We had to get a bigger place now that Zoie has her own room.  Major differences between this apartment and the last one are the extra bathroom we now have, a private patio and a basement.  I honestly don’t know how we had so much junk in the old apartment without the basement.

2.  We just had the internet and cable connected yesterday.  We had cancelled the cable a long time ago and I am glad to have it back.  Internet is faster now too.  Who doesn’t like a 15MB connection?  I need a new TV now though to take advantage of all the HD channels.

3.  Got a bill for almost 500 dollars from the old apartment b/c apparently they have to replace the carpet in one room b/c of a stain.  They also charged us 15.oo for leaving the oven dirty.  What a joke.

4.  Paying off my credit card bill will take a little longer now due to the extra money going to the old apartment.  Sorry Discover, looks like you have to wait an extra month.

5.  I am back in school!  I start back later this month.  Just under two years away from my degree.  Note to self – NO semester breaks this time, the previous one lasted 4 years!

6.  My EeePC is busted.  The battery died on me and for whatever reason the screen does not work at all now.  What timing too, just before I start back to school.

Phew! Big Shots Isn’t Canceled

I work a weird shift at work and on most nights I am working right through prime time TV. I use Tivo to record the shows I like to watch while I’m at work and then will usually watch one when I get home at roughly three or four in the morning. Well this morning, I came home like usual and turned on the Tivo to start watching Big Shots. Only when I went to select it, it was NOT in the list. I almost freaked out. I first thought of Smith, a CBS show that was cancelled last year and I had no idea it was happening. I looked back through the programing guide hoping that for some reason the tivo just didnt record it but it was actually on. It wasn’t listed in the lineup.

I then ran and jumped on the computer to check the Big Shots web site to see if it had been canceled. To my relief there was a message on the boards saying Big Shots was not canceled, just behind in shooting due to the fires in California where the show is shot and also because of the writer’s strike. The show is scheduled to be back next week and at least the following week. The message wasn’t all good though mentioning the ratings were rather low and may not be back next year.

Go watch this show people. The story lines are excellent and the cast is great. It’s on Thursday nights at 10p EST. Check it out, you will love it!!!
