| Mostly Calvin |
You are 80% Calvin and 20% Hobbes
| Your inner Calvin often prevails, but, as in the image below, you have a significant Hobbesian component. I'm going to try to stretch the visual metaphor here: you have a good head on your shoulders, but when you don't use it, your crazy body gets you in trouble? Does that work? Odds are you're impulsive and imaginative, but it's possible you've collected just enough wisdom to hold your most anti-social urges in check. Most of the time. It's a precarious balance, like a boy on one foot with a tiger head. |
| My test tracked 2 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender: |
|You scored higher than 97% on calvin|
|You scored higher than 0% on hobbes|

I dub today Nostalgia Day. Not only is it very close to the new year, but my brother is getting married today. My little brother :)
It kinda hit me more last night at the rehersal an dinner. Sounds sappy and whatnot but it makes me so bleeding happy i could burst! And then he and a buddy of his made this DVD montage of pics... im not always a misty eyed kinda guy... but that did it to me.
First they played a montage of Phils pics from infant to .. college grad ish , then Ruth, then both together.
Phils played In The Garage by Weezer. I watched my brothers life flash before me in three minutes and fifty three seconds. And damn... its true... he has grown up gone to college and gotten a job, and now a wife! It just really started this memory lane trip in my head last night that has continued on untill this morning. I dont normally feel nostalgia pangs like this.
So here i sit at my job 10 hrs before my baby brother gets married, listening to old school songs from high school and just soaking up the nostalgic day. And in honor of Nostalgia Day Im posting the first picture that Lisa and I have together from high school (before we were dating).
OK .. to most this is probly old news.
I had heard the cover Johnny Cash did of NIN's "Hurt". To me it is one of the BEST cover songs ever. Trents is more masochistic, Johnnys reflects a life full of pain and suffering in one song...
Well... i had never seen the video untill today. If you havent seen it check out the link below. THIS is what music videos are supposed to be! An enhancement of the song, to bring the listener in more. It makes most of the other music vids ive seen trivial and lame.
anyway.. heres the link
Man.. it was like a geek Smorgasbord at my house last night!
I have been keeping my eye out for another decent video card for a while. And recently i ramped up that watch because lisa got Guild Wars (I already had it)an online RPG. And her pc wouldnt play it. Well after much asking around i found that my good old trusty Fry's store was gonna bail me out. I bought an FX5200 128mb vid card w/ Nvidia chipset last night for 30 dollars. No rebates to send in, no signed contract in blood... 30 bucks!
So! Being extatic about that I drive straight home, and what to my wondering eyes appear... but a bigass box from UPS!!!
I have a friend who got an xbox 360 and graciously donated his old XBOX to me!!!! and IT WAS HERE!!!
Luckily for me i planned ahead and had gone to EB games with some of my xmas money. For 30 bucks I got Fable, Morrowind, and DOA3.
So I treated it like a buffet Id never been to, a bit o everything.
I installed my card in my machine and took my geforce4 mx440 and put it in Lisas machine. Then played a game or 2 for a few minutes just to get a good look ... MMMMMMMMMMMMM magically delicious!
Then I headed back to the XBOX to open it and play a game or 2. And another surprise... not ONLY does it have 4 controllers!!! but it was also skinned with a biohazard like skin!!!!
played a little fable, decided to go the evil route just because :P, then played some morrowind. I have played morrowind on my PC a long time ago so I knew what I was doing. Didnt go to far into it. Then spent the rest of my time pummeling pixels in DOA3!
Finally got to bed at about ... 1am or so ... and here I am at work at about .. 6am :P

Normal amount of time to traverse from work to home 12 minutes.
Last night due to the 7+ inches of snow that dropped... 2.5 hrs!
