The night the lights went out.

For about 1 hour the light went out in the whole apartment unit (possibly the whole block). Luckily I had a few candles and lit the area to stuff some mailer for my parent while listening to my iPod.

After some snags to progress to the next job title. It is complete. I got promoted to Coordinator (and the shiny floating thing). After the interview a few weeks back, they said that if you do not hear from us, it a good thing. As time went on I got this email about more access for my new job title. I thought, looks like I got it. This was some around January 18th. On the 23rd I checked MS Outlook (at work) on my description and it gave the Coordinator title. I got the official notice in a team meeting on the 25th. Basic run down: Coordinator = more money for me. Yea!

Things to do with Paintball.

The Paintball calendars have sent out and received by the group. With my selection of pictures was something of a selected choice. Trying not to duplicate the same pictures from the past calendars. To make it easy on me, I have added tags to the pictures in the photo album for each year they were used.
Next is to finish the DVD project. It has been a few month sense I have done anything. But, when I stopped I have almost finished 2 full DVD. I do have some 2-Disk DVD cases that I have from storage. The only other major thing that need done is the slip page for the case that has the cover and index on the back.

Dad's birthday.

Not the best shot, tried the night shot option on the digital camera. It did look ok on the little window of the camera in my defense.

Which Fantasy/SciFi Character Are You?

Which Fantasy/SciFi Character Are You?

What D&D Character Are You?

I Am A: Neutral Good Human Fighter Ranger

Neutral Good characters believe in the power of good above all else. They will work to make the world a better place, and will do whatever is necessary to bring that about, whether it goes for or against whatever is considered 'normal'.

Humans are the 'average' race. They have the shortest life spans, and because of this, they tend to avoid the racial prejudices that other races are known for. They are also very curious and tend to live 'for the moment'.

Primary Class:
Fighters are the warriors. They use weapons to accomplish their goals. This isn't to say that they aren't intelligent, but that they do, in fact, believe that violence is frequently the answer.

Secondary Class:
Rangers are the defenders of nature and the elements. They are in tune with the Earth, and work to keep it safe and healthy.

Lathander is the Neutral Good god of spring, dawn, birth, and renewal. His followers believe in new beginnings, and work for the betterment of all. They have no preferred weapon, but they typically wear plate mail and a shield, with red and yellow tinting. Lathander's symbol is rosy pink disk, typically cut from rose quartz.

That old house ...

A picture of the house I used to live in. I had used
this picture in a newspaper to rent a room.

About 6 months after I moved away.
The place is unkept and boarded up.
This was taken in Nov/05, as you can see, the place is
cleared of both trees and the two houses.
