A Day Off

I could go for this three day weekend thing more often.

I'm still sick. Yes, 12 days later here I am. I do feel better, so I should be back to normal soon. Hopefully.

I was lucky enough to make All State again this year. But it gets better...Tani and Julian also made it, so congrats to them. Three of the same instruments from the same school. That is pretty awesome. It will be really cool this year not only because I actually know people, but it is the CBDA 50th Anniversary, so they are doing all kinds of neat stuff. Just like last year, I didn't make All Southern, but this year apparently I'm an alternate. So, if some bloke happens to dislocate his shoulder I get to fill in. Hey, it's happened before. Casey, Lauren and Brianna made Southern, so congrats to them also.

CES is this week in Las Vegas. So far nothing too revolutionary has come about. There's a few neat little things on the subject of High Def DVD's but it still appears to be a toss up between HD-DVD and Blu-ray. I'm an HD-DVD man myself, but who knows what could happen.

Too bad nobody steals our wireless connection. Following the example of this guy, I could have some fun.

You know those annoying people who always take up two spaces when they park? Well, here you go. I don't fully understand it but it looks pretty funny if true.

John C. Dvorak gave is prediction for the iPhone in typical Dvorak fashion. He basically condemned it to failure (as he has every other new technology since the 80's) and he also bashes CES. Kind of an interesting watch.

Well, that's all for now. I'm awaiting a phone call with results from my hip MRI, so that should be fun.

I hear a lot about the iPhone and my cousin is going to get one (well not for a while at least) which means I can see one... pretty cool
It's awesome how all three of you made all state. I think it was thursday, during 5th period Mr.McQ was bragging about you guys... but good luck with it! I bet it will be fun with people you know.
umm, well I guess I'll see you around

Hm, well, after 12 days of sickness you should go to the doctors. But that's just me. I just hope you feel better soon.

Once again, congrats on making All State... again. I seriously think you're like a prodigy when it comes to music. :D

Anyways, hope you enjoy whatever's left of your 3 day weekend.
