Holy shit. Wheelchair Basketball, Blind Triple Jump, Blind soccer, Super Swimmers…
I hella missed out. These athletes are fucking amazing.
PS: The Big Picture is fantastic. I meant to pimp it a while back, but it got lost in the 2read madness (login w/ “hagure” & no password) that I’ve accumulated. Check out their Olympic pix too. A definite add to The Reader, hint hint.
So during these last few days of my Vacaville Summer, I’ve been doing a lot of CAGing around. I’ve picked up a decent load: 2 ‘Speed’ games (Sonic Rush for DS and F-Zero GP Legend for GBA) and 2 RPGs (Suikoden Tactics and DQ VIII). Sadly though, I missed my opportunity to get my dream… =(((
I know its kinda late… but the night of the World Cup I got something like this in my e-mail. Even after all has been forgotten, this stuff still gets a good laugh outta me. And I don’t even watch soccer that much (anymore… hehe)
I’ve also got Sly 2 and Beyond Good and Evil ($9.98 each) waiting for me back in San Diego. In order to get free shipping for it though, I picked up something I’ve had on my wishlist forever now.
I forget where I originally heard about her, and I didn’t even bother to listen to it again before I got it. Trusting my ULTRA KEEN sense in music impulse took over and I clicked blindly. Though the album’s a little short, (less than 40 minutes), “Everybody Loves You” has become one of my favorite chill-time albums. You’ve gotta listen to her play… its kinda hard to describe in words. So… here ya go!

Her style is hella refreshing… simply… man. Apparently she’s got a new album out too… gotta check that out.
Sadly though, this CD is the only gift I’ll be able to use for a while (cept for some threadless shirts), seeing that I bought games for systems that I don’t have yet.
I’m so silly sometimes.
Yay I’m happy with the design. Although I was thinking about expanding the header image to go above the menu, that’ll take too much work so imma leave it as is. Granted, I may change the design before this site goes online, but who cares. Its my first site design, and although it is highly unoriginal, I like it. It is kinda bland though. Too much spice, too many notes. I mean, too white. I don’t have the ability to go beyond it (Amadeus).
Anyway, I got my final wisdom tooth pulled today. I was supposed to go under, but I didn’t look at the directions I was given and ate 2 bites of a burger before I realized I wasn’t supposed to eat 8hrs. beforehand. I thought I’d still be able to do it so I didn’t finish it. I regretted that, and was very hungry as I waited 2 HOURS for a thing that took 20 minutes total (including 12 minutes of waiting for the numbness to kick in). So I guess I won’t get to experience the drug induced stupidity of anesthesia. BTW, the posters up in the dentist’s room (he was a fatass) were pretty trippy. A collage of sports and animals, kinda like those Highlights “find these items” thingies, but hella trippier (Imagine a flying bird/basketball and a shark with a shovel through its head). There was another one that seemed bible based, but I didn’t get a good look at that one. On the plus side though, I was able to not argue my way out of paying for my medication, which will allow me to procure some vicadin tomorrow (for the tooth I pulled a few weeks ago, my dad told em that we wanted to get the meds for free from the base, which resulted in a change of prescription from the V to codeine). We’ll see if that shit is what it’s all cracked up to be.
Oh. for the 4th, I saw some fireworks @ the creekwalk. It was ehhhhhh… BBQ too. That’s good. Fuckin’ hotlinks and hamburgers are too good.
Oh yeah, imma be back in SD round the 20th. The retreat for SB starts the next day. That made me sad, cuz that’s less time back home than I thought I had, but it totally makes sense. Somehow I know I should be more excited or enthused, or more something about this whole ATC thing but I dunno, I guess it hasn’t hit me yet or something. Maybe its the fact that I don’t have a place to stay yet. Or a major. So I guess I feel displaced in my current “hometown” of SD.
Oh yeah. Check out the jay-zeezer project. It’s a mixed bag, but there are some real gems there. I DL’ed it awhile ago, but just started listening to it forreals. I didn’t pick up the bonus tracks tho, so I’m dl’in “Yeah In The Sun” right now, now that I fucking love “Yeah”. If you ever meet this poster, ask me to do my Lil’ Jon impressions. I’ve been told that I’m pretty accurate. “OKAAAAAY!?!
Oh yeah. Playing is for pleasure.
