Well it’s been a while since I’ve updated this thing, so I guess it’s time to catch up.

Mostly I have been enjoying the break by either hanging with the family or in Pearland with Lyndsay. We had a Houston Christmas, you know, 80 degrees with 100% humidity… Some call it beautiful; I call it heat stroke. I received some nice things for Christmas which is listed below:

  • Parents
    1. Paring knife w/ sharpner (really needed one)
    2. Poker chip spinning thingy set
    3. “Bleachers” by John Grisham
    4. “Flags of Our Fathers” by James Bradley
    5. “Flyboys” by James Bradley
    6. Finding Nemo
    7. Windtalkers
    8. Finding Forrester
    9. Car Care Kit (this thing rules!
    10. The Best of ELO CD
    11. Robert Earl Keen – Walking Distance

    All and all some really cool stuff…

  • Lyndsay
    1. This throw blanket that has feathers inside… all I can say is, two thumbs up.
    2. Bruce Almighty (of course, awesome)
    3. A big bag of peanut M&M’s, she knows I’m an M&M fanatic
    4. and Lyndsay’s parents gave me a hoodie from Aeropostale, very nice.

So it was a good Christmas. The truck is running great (thanks to my parents) and all in all it’s been a good break from school.

Just so everyone knows, Lyndsay has entered the world of geekdom. A few weeks ago she used “Google” as a verb by telling me she “googled” something, haha!! Then I found out she knew what Linux was and now she has her own little blog. So welcome her to geekdom by flooding her blog with traffic!

In other news, Texas Tech is playing Navy in the EV1.net Houston Bowl. My mom got tickets so we are going to go support the Red Raiders as they wreck Navy!!! Speaking of which, a friend I grew up with plays football for Navy. Be watching for him on ESPN.

Well I am testing out the new database. I think I may have lost the ability to retrieve some of the old posts (I don’t know why) so that kind of sucks. But this new database should be a lot faster.

Well I decided I was tired of my host so I am moving to a different server to host this site… hopefully it will be faster and better than the current one. The site may be down for the next few days but it will be back soon.

People are so hard to understand for the reasons that they do or don’t do things. I just don’t get how people say one thing, then they act a different way, then they go back and change what they said. I don’t understand it and I don’t understand why someone would do it.

Well the official announcement was made today for the replacement of the World Trade Center. The new name will be ‘Freedom Tower’ and it will be the tallest in a series of buildings. The Master Site will be a conglomerate of buildings with the Freedom Tower standing above them all. Height really didn’t seem to be a big deal with the designers since they knew the building would be surpassed in height in a few years.
