What do you do for lunch when you have 3 business days before pay check, you’re bank is ~$100 in the hole; and you have $6 on your person for gas and food until you get payed. AND you feel like alians sapped your energy durring the time you were supposed to be restoring it because they need the precious energy to feed their space cacti…
Day one: Buy bean beef burrito’s, 10 for 2.50. AND a Monster energy drink to cure the alian drain syndrome
Day two(Wednesday): Eat more bean burrito’s from day one… drink water. Hope it’s someone elses turn to feed the cacti. Steal the large bin of pop bottles from work… cha ching! Gas Money!!… like $5, but it’ll get me to work and back a couple times.
Day three(Thurs): Laugh at day one and two as you eat the rest of the bean beef burrito’s from day one.
Day four… doesn’t matter, I get paid. w00t! PDX LAN here I come! Yeah, I have been playing Half Life 2 a little bit. Ok… it was an 8 hour occupation yesterday… soooo pretty and the physics engine is SO much fun!! I like throwing things… at things… and blowing them up. hehe
Back to work! TA!
Another day… another, not a whole lot to talk about. Well, Home Depot did call me tonight. Andy(Mr. Scheduler Guy) is trying to officialy deturmine that it is not worth Home Depots time, trouble, and money to keep the computer nerd with a pickey schedule. It would be SO COOL if they had me come back. It would completely suck as far as social life goes… but the money looks SO good too me right now. I can put so many things in my life streight and onward to better things with that hyper-boosted income. I could stand doing it through the holidays… probably until spring or even summer. I could get my car. Move out. Rebuff my computer. Get A+ Certified. Pay off Student Loans. And finally start saving for a house and a life beyond. Big dreams. Jurassic measures. Two words. Bring it!
BTW, the reason I mentioned re-buffing my computer… Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Just take a look at those screen shots and you’ll see. Yes. Those are SCREEN SHOTS!. That is what it looks like playing the game. Not perfectly life like… but technology is getting there. When you can see the leaves, leading to branches, leading to the trunks on the trees… then have light, and shadow on each part going to the right place depending on where the light is coming from. We’re talking aw-inspiring mathmatics. I have the screen shot of a knite on his horse as my wall paper right now. Have a look around at the Morrowind/Tribunal screen shots too see where they were last year. I can’t wait until 64bit processing becomes the norm for these developers to work with… more power, and very likely more speed. Drool. They have also done impressive things with the games AI too, but you can read their stuff to find out the goods on that. I don’t want to expose any more of my geekness at the moment.
Half Life 2 it’s coming out next month… it’s not AS pretty, but apparently is getting rated as the best game EVER by EVERY place that reviews computer games!
