Black Friday

By far, one of my most favorite days of the year. This year was awesome. Karl and I got up at a quarter to four in the morning and waited in line at Best Buy for an hour. It was definitely worth the early morning wait; we both came out with a Sandisk Mp3 player and an external 160gig hard drive, together coming out to under $120. Pretty good, if I do say so myself.

Thanksgiving break was great...although I wouldn't complain it were just a wee bit longer. Hey...only 3 weeks until Christmas (oh...excuse me..."winter") break. You always know how a few days off are going to be by the first few hours. Tuesday afternoon I had a camera stuck up my nose and down my throat (laryngoscopy...always so fun), so you could tell it was gonna be a good one. My entire Mom's side of the family was here, plus my sisters and the guys that usually tag along with them. We had a good time, and it was a lot of fun.

The great mystery of why ketchup first will not come out, and then gushes out may be on the road to being solved. A very interesting read and examination of people with way too much time on their hands (sorta like me).

Welp, only 27 shopping days until Christmas...I better get to work.

Happy Button Day!

Yup...button day. Your guess is as good as mine. Too bad I missed National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day (Nov. 15). Hopefully this Saturday you won't have a bad Have a Bad Day Day.

Life trudges on as normal. Not too much new to report. This Friday will be loads of fun: Algebra II/Trig test, Spanish presentation, English quiz, and Chemistry test. Can't wait.

Apparently future Intel P4's will allow for multiple OS's to run simultaneously. Now that is just plain awesome. There's no other way to describe it. Do I see Vista, OS X, and Linux running simultaneously on one box in the future???

Check out the 200 gig Nano.

A province in central China has found a new way to get wanted criminals known in public: put their faces on playing cards.

Of course we can't forget the $130,000 truffle, the sparrow that knocked over 23,000 dominoes, and the first dog to get a prosthetic limb.

That should keep you busy a while.

One hour, forty three minutes. That was my official time on for the Santa Clarita Half Marathon that I ran on Sunday. I ran the 13 miles with Karl (my bro in law), and my dad. It was a lot of fun, and I think it may turn into a family annual event.

The night before (Sat.), band competed (well, maybe "played" is a better word) at the annual Heart Rampage at College of the Canyons. Although it was fun as it always is, we did pretty badly. Actually, we did really bad. Oh well, there's always next time.

I feel like ranting, so here goes:
I hate sitting in the front row. Not only is it in the front (which sucks for obvious reasons), but your right there where the teacher can see, breathe, spit, cough, sneeze, or whatever else they might do on you. Especially when they are sick. Thanks to a certain English teacher (who's really not all that bad as a teacher), I've been battling this cold for a week. Fun.

Happy 1st birthday, Firefox! May you live long, prosper, and continue to take back the web.

Just FYI- Clarkville is down for some odd reason. I'll get around to fixing whatever the problem is this weekend.

Well, off to prepare for my 15 hour day tomorrow. It's the last football game and everybody is riding the whole day out. Three day weekend coming up!
