it's the weekly update!

I'm sorry that the updates are only coming weekly now. I'm just not in the mood lately to sit down and write stuff out. Sometimes it's a chore to come up with topics to write about, even though usually it's just about my day/week.

Last weekend was a bit more eventful than usual for me. On Friday night, I went to Justin's show at Stomping Ground's. I took more pictures for them, and should have an edited set uploaded soon. It's fun to take pictures of them while playing, and sometimes challenging. I'm admittedly not great but I do like some of the shots I get.

Scott, my ex-coworker buddy, had a going-away party Saturday night. He jokingly made a note in the facebook event about tie-dye apparel being suggested. Sure enough, Mark, Andy, Kelcey, and I brought some tie-dye gear to wear at the party. Strangely, we were basically the only group of people rocking that look, in addition to Scott and a couple other people here and there. I haven't hung out with Scott in a long while but he was fun to hang out with. He's moving to Colorado because he's partial to snowy climates.

Who knows what I did on Sunday, because I sure don't. All I know is that I should have cleaned up my room and did laundry, but I didn't. I have a huge pile of clothes in my room and it aggravates me. It aggravates me more that I'm too lazy to do the laundry.

Oh, I remember what I did on Sunday! I setup my computer to work with my TV with an HDMI cable! I installed XBMC, a cool media center program, and configured it with my collection of TV shows and movies. Now, with a cool interface, I can browse and watch my media from my TV. To top it all off, I bought the iPhone app Hipporemote which allows me to use my iPhone as a remote to play/pause, etc. It's a pretty cool setup, I have to admit.

So I'm probably a bit late on this bus, but did you know there is a number to opt-out of all pre-approved credit offers? The number is 1-888-567-8688 or 1-888-5-OPTOUT. You can read more details here. I did this earlier today. It's an automated process, and it can be annoying sometimes because it asks you to speak your address and tries to understand you, which it never does. But eventually if you stick in there, you'll get it done.
