As of 5 PM today, I will be on vacation. As I am leaving my Cube in the house (and for once NOT dragging it home with me), I will be online considerably less this break than usual. However, I can always pop by the house should I need my fix. So rock on. Schedule of events is as follows: Work all this week, Christmas-related activities all next week, Kate here the week after, us down at Kate’s the week after that, and then one more week of work before I start the last semester. Should you need to reach me, email is the best; calling my cell may also work, but given varying reception, the house phone may be better. All my finals went fine, and I’ve already gotten one grade back (B+ in IT). My knee has recovered after me royally fucking it up at DDR Club up on North a few weeks back. I’m now up to 14 Catas. I now have every mix save 1st. I am disgustingly addicted. Hope you all have a happy Holiday and all that jazz.
I’ve finally got a small chunk of free time, and what better to do than
write my first news entry in about a month? I’ll even go full-blog style,
because it’s been so long.
Wedding: The date has been bumped forward, and the reception will now be in Sage Hall. More details to follow.
DDR: The path of rage continues, unsurprisingly. I seem to be playing about an hour or more a day, and the exercise is definitely helping – I’ve lost at least 15 pounds from when I started playing. In fact, I should probably weigh myself again…anyhow, I’ve thrown 2 more mixes into my collection, with another one coming in the very near future.
More DDR: I’ve now downed
6 8 Cata’s (Catastrophic’s, or
“the toughest difficulty song in the game” for the uninitiated), and I’m
starting to move into freestyling a little bit. Freestyling is where you
care less about nailing all the arrows as just looking good doing it -
which I need a lot of work on. Unfortunately, I banged up my knee badly
last week at DDR Club doing just that. If you want to see exactly what
frestyling looks like, and you have DivX installed, check out DJ
8-ball’s Cafe new routine.
Reflection: That’s a large amount of DDR news. I’m such a geek.
CCC: My one-semester term as Production Director is almost over, and we had our Run DMC show on Sunday. Highlights included a portion of Bailey Hall collapsing (a football sized chunk of molding hit the stage because Biz Markie’s bass was too loud), and a drugged up nutball jumping on stage. Never mind that we only sold around 800 tickets. Oh well, it was sort of fun, I guess. Also, I have a list of what CCC members put on their crew signup forms as to why they think they’re special. The results are scary.
Kate: Kate was up for Thanksgiving, and it was wonderful as always to have her up. Next visit will be right before New Year’s – no Christmas visit again this year, sadly.
School: Classes are just about over. Still haven’t found a job for after graduation. 4 finals in 2 days unless I can get some of them moved. Argh.
Time Wasters: Have you tried CartoonOrbit yet? Lots of fun in a collect-em-all sort of way. I’m “Sock Him Bean29″. Also, Fark.com is vgg.
Web page: A couple minor changes, as I tweak the bar of links in the lower left no one looks at, and reconsider various bits of content. The movie reviews, which I was gung-ho about over the summer, has languished since; RemyHoo hasn’t been touched in ages. Linkpad/Newspad is the only thing I regularly update, and that’s just because it’s so ass easy.
Oddity: I’ve now received 2 emails from camgirls looking to be put on the MGWCPT. Trying to figure out what to do about it, exactly. Maybe just make it a general cam portal?
Purchases: Greatly reduced since I now have roughly 0 money for kicking around. Still, I can’t recommend Paul van Dyk’s The Politics of Dancing enough.
Closing: If you’re bored, email me/IM me/whatever me.
