Off to Colorado...

I'm off to Colorado again with the whole family. We'll be up at the cabin for a few days of relaxing and skiing. Hopefully this year I'll return with all limbs attached and where they're supposed to be.

Hope you all had a great Christmas, and have a happy new year!

"Colombine Type Assault" Plotted at QHHS

Two boys accused of seriously planning a "Columbine-" type attack on Feb. 14, Valentine's Day, at the 3,400-student Quartz Hill High School have been arrested, authorities said Friday.
An investigation began on Wednesday when a student contacted the vice-principal and said two former classmates were planning a "Columbine-type assault" on the campus, said Sgt. Darrel D. Brown, of the Lancaster Sheriff's Station.

Here's the frontpage story from the AV Press.

Pretty freaky stuff.

So Close...Yet So Far...

Welp, we lost Grand Champion by 1.6 points. Yes, 1.6. We beat 'em fare and square last week, so I guess we got what we wanted, but a Palmdale banner would have been nice. Oh well...there's always next year.

Finals next week. Grrr...don't remind me.

Three week winter break in one week! Yes! Remind me!

0% Christmas shopping completed. Compared with last years 0% at this time...we're right on schedule.

Only two weeks, then:

  • Colorado!
  • Cabin!
  • Snow!
  • Skiing!
  • Christmas!
  • Any other great thing I forgot!

Finally...somebody sat down and actually wrote out the difference between a Nerd and a Geek, and got it right. Maybe people will stop calling me a nerd, and get it right: I'm a Geek (and proud of it)!

Grand Champion...Almost

If a place known as Santa Monica didn't exist, we would have taken grand champion yesterday at the AV parade and field tournament. We did the best we've done in at AV in a long time...first in parade and second in the field. If we keep it up for next week, (and my rank learns how to flippin guide...but that's a rant for another time) we're looking at Palmdale grand champion, so hopefully I'll have the same title next week sans the 'almost'. It was a long, cold (make that extremely cold and windy) yet, as always, fun day.

Only two weeks of school left! That's the good news, the bad news is only one week before finals. Argh.

You know all those annoying Microsoft 'Send Error Report' windows? Well, you ever wondered what they do with them? Check it out...its pretty funny.

This site has all of the real games from the golden age of gaming. Tons of games from the 80s and early 90s. Lots of Nintendo and arcade games run right on the site... a great way to kill a few hours.

Tis all for now- see ya next week.
