    Balling

    After a few months off to give time for a few people to heal up, we had our 3rd Yelp Basketball meet up. This time around i actually got some one to come out and play as well, as Edward showed up, and showed up to play. We got in about 4 games before my body gave up on me, but two days later i’m still sore. The first few games i was able to run up and down the floor and make a few layups but at the end my legs (and knee) didn’t have it to finish strong to the basket, and i had to walk up on…

    Hacking Away

    So there comes a time that when a person has to come to their senses and finally succumb to the great being known as the iPhone. At least i’m doing it on my own terms and not a two year lease on an invisible bandwidth. The other night while waiting in the theaters to watch Resident Evil 4, i saw a guy a few rows below playing Street Fighter on his iPhone and it looked really fun. I didn’t give it much thought until this weekend when i remembered that joy has her 1st gen sitting on the dressert that i thought i would try my hands of jailbreaking it…

    Work Stress

    For what seems like an eternity the work place has been working on a project for the past three months that was suppose to technically only take one month to complete. But due to the inablity to receive approvals, change in directions, unrealistic goals and a general lack of project management from their side the project has just become hell for office moral, and personal health of myself. Ever since i got back from work from our vacation in Hawaii i’ve been working 12-16 hours days, sometimes 6 days a week without any real time to recuperate my body is starting to fail. I can feel my blood pressure rise…

    Another one bites the dust

    The wonderful weird world that we live in completely collided on friday when Joy’s friend Thao got married to Dinh, a guy that i once worked with six years ago. They threw a huge bash at Rancho Las Lomos with lots of flowers and lots of booze to match. The groom really broke down during his speech and the bride had tears flowing the entire time. By flowing i mean, they took a 3 foot tall center piece vase, cleaned it out and poured x amounts of beers to fill it up and passed it around to the bridal to drink on down. Suffice it to say that there were…

    Inception explains it, or does it?

    I finally got to watch Inception on Saturday now that its been out in theaters for weeks. I made the one fatal mistake was to have a few drinks a couple hours before, and have a headache start to form throughout the movie. With so many characters and plot lines to follow it made my head spin even more. I was able to keep up, but when they started to explain how many level of dreams i was dreading the pain to follow. Thankfully i got out of the movie alive with plenty of story lines, and conclusions to debate about. It was really a great movie and i would…
