The 3D Curveball link has been fixed on the sidebar. This link appears to be quite a bit better as it's a full screen game, none of the window inside a webpage bogusness.

Matt Miller is the man. Thanks to him for the free drinks at Taco Bell for Alison and I. And these were big drinks, the biggest they can be. If you see Matt Miller in the hallways of Craig High School starting September 2nd, feel free to say "Hey, you're the man at Taco Bell".

In other news I completely dominated Alison in Monopoly Tycoon tonight.

So! I'm back with a new Palm Zire 71 and a new pair of headphones. The only thing left wet from the Packer Game last night is my wallet, guess I know it won't be burning a whole in my pocket again. Here's a complete statistically story on what happened during the game. For my experience the rain came in the first quarter and I had seats in the back row of the Brown County Section (where the old luxury boxes used to be). I was somewhat shielded by the luxury boxes and press box for a while, but that was until the rain changed directions and then I was soaked. My poncho was with our other group of tickets in row 17, ironically. I was forced to sit and soak until towards the end of the second quarter the rain delay was made, we headed for the concourse area (my brother, my dad, and I). Meeting up with the rest of our party (Joel, Wayne, and Bob) we discussed worldy matters and through magnets up onto steel poles for TWO AND A HALF HOURS until finally over half the crowd was gone and they said lets play ball. We returned to the seats, whichever seat we wanted for that matter. I sat in the front row south endzone, it was awesome. A few plays into the second half I moved to a 5th row seat at the 50 yard line, but my front row experience proved to be the best. The first string players in good mood to get the game over and go home didn't have to dress out again, only second and third stringers. So!, as they walked out I got a nod from Gilbert Brown as he walked past me and I got to shake hands with William Henderson.

An experience to be had it was insane. Getting home at 4 A.M. The stadium was only five rows deep the whole way around once gameplay resumed. I have pictures of that for tomorrow perhaps.
The Packer game was insane, as most of you probably already know. We stayed until there were 4 minutes left in the fourth quarter and got home at 4 A.M. A once and a lifetime experience but it was only fitting for the group that was there.

I'll have plenty more stories on that soon, however now I must be off to get a new device.

And yes, I got wet. Very wet.

Green Bay Packer game today. Quite the bummer you're at home huh?

So, as I'm sitting at the counter and the pizza is in the oven finishing up cooking I would like to take a moment and reflect on what was the "Janesville Craig High School Parking Lot Surprise of 2003". I got to school today for marching band was surrpised to find that as I got closer to the school there wasn'ta single spot available in any of the three parking lots. People were parking on the and all over. It was insane, out of nowhere all these cars had descened upon what should have been three empty parking lots and empty fields of grass. So after toiling around and cleverly crafting a parking spot out of a somewhat open area of pavement I went and played my trombone. I later found out that it was some big Janesville School District Teacher Pow Wow. Apparently they all were served breakfast or something, either way it was brutal. Never do that to me again, it's scary.

I would also like to make note on what is bothering me with my laptop. The fan over the processor appears to be vibrating very badly, resulting in a very large noise. I wish I had the tools to fix this, but when I looked I was a little over my head in my fan skillz.

My brother's computer appears to just have crapped out. Which isn't to incredibly cool. However it appears to be something with his graphics card, so it'll probably randomly fix itself in a few minutes.

In the time Chris Horton was over with his computer last night we managed to raise the temperature in our computer lab here at home by 5 degrees celsisus. At least inside my computer case, it was pretty scary.
While I'm still trying to figure out the stupid thing I will bring you this. The Office Space, a great game where you run from bosses and pick up garbage. Similar to most people's work days this game should be a good stress relief. Or stress enducing. Did I spell "enducing" right? I hate spellcheckers.
Why am I so stupid? Answer that for me please. My intentions are never to hurt, yet somehow I often do.

Oh yeah! I get up and I'm up to a 6.0 on Check out the post below for more info.

So after my first day of being on hotornot it appears when I'm covered in mud I'm only a 5.5. Like a typical IPO (Initial Public Offering, for those not frequent of the markets) I flucuated early at 8, to which I plummeted down to a 4.8. Finally I ended the day at 5.5. Rate Me Now.

Come on, I know you want to give me a 10, I'm definitely hotter than 49 percent of the men on that site.
I configured Squid for my home LAN, yay. For those of you that don't know what Squid is, it's a proxy server designed to cache what you visit. That way when a website is often visited by many people in your house, some of the files are stored on your LAN, speeding up load times. Initially it seemed a little slower but now it seems to be working nice and fast now, caching every website everyone in the house visits. Yay for open-source development.

Ironically Slashdot seems to load twice as fast now. Now for it to be installed at work.
So based upon previous posts where I proclaimed to the world how sexy I look while I'm muddy I've decided to take it a step further. Inspired by the noble Christopher Michael Burrow and his showing me of the Kobe Bryant girl I had to put my picture on That's right, you can now vote on how sexy I am with mud all over me. Check me out and vote.
So I just drank this can of Mountain Dew, and it was warm. What I was thinking I don't know. But anyways I have a large problem now. I'm mouth farting. Not burping, but mouth farting. My mouth is like exploding with a farting like release, not a burp but a fart. It's odd.

Hey, check this out. While we're all sitting in school dying of the heat for the first and last few months of school this year, this guy won't spend the 26 extra dollars on taxes or whatever insignifcant number it comes out to. Apparently because he didn't have air conditioning, we can't. I suppose with that theory we'd all still be beating each other with clubs, but hey what do I know?

"Remillard also objects to plans to install new air conditioning at the high schools.

"Well that's fine and dandy," he said. "If anybody on the school board has gone to junior or senior high with air conditioning, then I'll agree to it." "

Read the full story.

I don't get why this is such a big deal. It's not that much money when you break it down. I will pay my parents share of the money so I don't have to live in puddles of my sweat all day long.
Man I just got done testing out Las Vegas Tycoon. Not having a clue what to expect I was impressed, I want to play again.

That new Dahsboard Confessional CD is growing on me, except the song "Ghost of a Good Thing" isn't too hot. Something about it just doesn't trip my trigger. Check my earlier posts for more information on that.

I can't stand this research project I'm supposed to be doing for AP U.S. History, it just completely is unfair to have homework over the summer.

I really want my new Palm Pilot. The cool, the sexy, the not really godly Palm Zire 71.

I haven't had to sit at my work computer, so I haven't been quite as angered by the Sobig virus lately, just wait until Monday. I haven't been infected, but yet I'm still managing to be affected. After recieving 250 emails containing it in a 36 hour period you would begin to wonder why you.

Fastball rules, they were and always will be such a great band. Their website appears as if they have a new CD coming out soon, that or I'm just hoping.

Craig Jazz Band, today, 1:00 P.M. Rendevous At The River/Taste of Janesville (it's at the looks like a train but it is a bus station). Come see me play trombone. My back will be to Court St. and my desk at the Boys & Girls Club (50 yards away), if that helps anyone figure out where we are.

So I was thinking, how many of you are perfectly happy being bored every great now and then? I was sitting today and realizing how bored I was, but the fact that everyone else around me was busy was very amusing. It's odd how things are like that. Caffeine is good.
Laser printers are scary!

I had one randomly come out of power save mode today at a place I was doing computer work for and wow, it was really loud. It sounded like it had some giant fan inside of it somewhere. Anyways, I was amazed. I have never seen any computer part this loud.
Last night proved to be interesting. After trying to connect with Chris Horton, Alison and I finally met up with him at Joel Bessire's house three hours later. I guess it was all good as we got to play Phase 10, a great card game. I was on a tear but due to Alison, Chris, and my late start we were too far behind to catch up with everyone else and win. Frequency for what I got to see of it was a fairly interesting movie. I wouldn't say it falls in the "bad" category, but I'm not sure it goes in the "good" either.

While I was at Culver's last night I attempted to enter their 12 and under coloring contest. However, I had no crayons to color with, so I had to resort to the sharpie in my pocket. I attempted my hardest to make everything in the predrawn picture look evil, but I had almost no luck. I think the evilest thing I ended up drawing was this little Pac Man guy that was trying to eat the sun. Oh well.

So as a parody of the Friendster service someone started the Wifester service. Apparently it doesn't work in Utah.
I thought I was bad off with my three hours of marching/jazz band for this whole week. Sock it to those choir kids. They have a brutal NINE (yes, 9) HOURS of dance camp this whole week. Oddly enough Amanda didn't really seem to mind all that much either...

Wednesday, August 20, 2003

I'm listening to the new Dashboard Confessional CD, "A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar" and I'm not sure what to think yet. If you didn't like the old stuff, I would give this album a try because it's quite a bit different. If you liked the old songs, still give this a listen however the electric guitar may be quite the change for you.

Tuesday, August 19, 2003

So I guess my mom promised pictures of Camp Scotch to the rest of my family and she said they would be up here. So here's the Scotch family's 15 seconds of fame. The only pictures online I have right now can be found here, here, and here. The rest are coming.

I'm sorry for those of you that have dial-up or an older computer, you might want to bring a book to read while you wait.
Who's got the coolest girlfriend? That's right me.

Not only did she come into computer game stores with me in Madison today. She wouldn't let me leave the store, she wanted to stop and play the games at the displays. Not once, but twice. This is why my girlfriend is cooler than yours, hands down.

On another note, Noah's Ark was awesome.
Noah's Ark tomorrow (today by the time you read this).

Isn't it quite the bummer to be you, all here and alone?

I know I've mentioned how much I love the Janesville road network before, but today I even have a better story to go with it. Ok so I'm coming back to work from band and I'm sitting at a red light. I wait and wait and finally it changes. So I'm starting to creep out into the green-light-for-me intersection. When this van pulls up that I had watched leave the parking lot I was entering. So the van slows down to maybe 15 (mind you they have a red light their direction) and then all the sudden red must have meant go and they take off. I'm forced to stomp on the brakes to keep this red light runner from being a new hood ornament. Now alright they ran a red light while I was trying to go through the intersection, they're a crazy driver but oh no the story does not end here. They proceed to lay on their horn and both the man driver and the lady passenger give me the finger. I think they were trying to tell me thanks for understanding that green means stop and red means stop. Needless to say this angered me a little as not only was my life put in danger but I was given the finger for following the law and going through a green light.

When can I take a helicopter to work?
Mud volleyball pictures are up at the Boys & Girls Club of Janesville website. I'm so sexy when I'm dirty, or maybe not.

Saturday, August 16, 2003

Mud volleyball was awesome even though we were 1-2, we beat Cargilll, which is who I wanted to beat. Yay go team. Thanks to Alison for playing on such a very late notice.

Friday, August 15, 2003

Hey I'm playing mud volleyball all day Saturday at Traxler's Park for the Janesville Corn Roast, I need all of you to come out and cheer on the "Mudders". I'm playing for the Boys & Girls Club of Janesville. I start at 9 A.M. and if we continue to win, which we will, I'll be playing until 6 P.M., I'll see you there.

So I've came to a few key realizations today. I'm a complete zombie when I don't eat. It's much harder to think when I haven't ate. I am incapable of eating three dollar menu double cheeseburgers in a single sitting. I really love Mountain Dew. I hate Compaq computers. Oh and most importantly the wasteful interstate bridge expansion in Janesville coupled with the fixing of Ruger and Racine has to be by far the most inconvient and annoying construction project ever, my ride to work went from 5 minutes to 15. Not only are the stop sign ladies grouchy, but the back-hoe thinger broke down in the middle of Ruger today causing me 12 minutes. In the end my trip to work today was 20 minutes. Thanks Janesville, I love your stupid non-straight, one-way road system.

Wednesday, August 13, 2003

I found a wonderful resource for myself. Ladies you can now understand me.

-Why Geek Dudes Rule-
They are generally available.

Other women will tend not to steal them.

They can fix things.

Your parents will love them.

They're smart.
It feels like a Taco Bell softshell taco day. 89 cents a piece, yum.

Concert in the Janesville Courthouse Park this Friday. Located right off Main Street, Loyal Blue will take the stage after Strictly Commercial. The concert starts at 5:00 P.M. and it's FREE! You'll get to watch the likes of Eric Schoff, Jay Salinas, Michael Mood, Greg Tucker, Adam Storer, and Kellan Clark rock out right here in Janesville. Of course it costs money to put a concert on so a small donation would always be appreciated.

I'll be there and so should you!

Just a little quickie to shamelessly promote my new pictures up on DeviantART. They're from the first night of my vacation to Lake Tahoe, check them out.

Monday, August 11, 2003

So I didn't post on vacation yesterday, nor have I today yet. I promise I'll get to it soon.

On another note I got to see most of Old School last night and it was awesome. As expected my Frostie Freeze chocolate chip malt failed to dissapoint.

I had a Burger King double cheeseburger today, it was awesome. I want you to have one sometime soon. And it better be double, otherwise you're cheating.

Everyone should search on Google for "a really cool website" or just follow this link.

I'M BACK!!!!!!!!

More on that tomorrow, which is already today....

Friday, August 01, 2003

I'm going to be gone for the next week in Neveda at the yearly Camp Scotch, family reunion shindig. Scotch being my mother's maiden name, not the drink. So as a going away present to the masses I made you guys all a new song. I'm calling it "Automagical Pornography", enjoy!

BTW, no idea if I'll have the Internet, if I do I'll probably be posting on here. If I don't I'll just snuggle with my laptop, I guess.
