Before I get to the root of this post, I’d just like to say that I’ve been dealing with some personal matters in my life which have inhibited my blogging time. Nothing too major or anything; just some family issues that have yet to be resolved and, hopefully, will be in the near future.
So now here we go!
In this, an even-numbered year, it seems that some of the more memorable things have been happening on odd-numbered days. Not that I’m a firm believer in numerology or anything, I just noticed that this is the way things are going. In fact, it seemed to start on December 31, 2009 when I got the call about the job interview.
Since then, more and more things have been taking place every other day. Here’s a brief collection of these things:
January 1: Went to John’s Incredible Pizza which isn’t spectacular, but it was our first time going. And it was a lot of fun.
January 3: Took a trip to Disneyland since our Annual Passports weren’t blocked anymore.
January 5: Job interview. They are supposed to be calling back candidates this week and I’ll let you know if I hear anything.
January 7: The first Microsoft Lifecam Cinema webcam arrived. I say “the first” since I ordered one from OnSale.com but was later able to obtain it for significantly cheaper. So as of this post, I have two of the suckers; the one from OnSale will be returned.
January 9: The computer that was to be my early birthday present from the in-laws was supposed to arrive from Dell but, due to their incompetence, it has yet to materialize. There seems to be a major fuck-up on their half and we’ve since canceled the order. Once the in-laws are properly refunded, we’re walking into Wal-Mart and grabbing the same HP model that they bought Ann for her birthday. Dude, I’m so not getting a Dell. Fortunately, that day some good news did arrive: my copy of Forza Motorsport 3. So it wasn’t a total loss.
January 11: The second webcam arrived, which is what I’m using at this moment to stream my ugly mug via Stickam while I blog:
"Words...something something something..."
(And believe it or not, there are two people actually watching me.) It’s HD and it’s pretty damn cool…if only my old computer had the resources to stream an HD picture. Either way, I’m enjoying it.
To take that a step further, I had originally purchased the webcam with the intention of posting video blogs on those days when I’m feeling especially lazy or have something worthy of showing off. Whatever the hell that could be is beyond me, but I thought that posing a video blog now and then would be pretty cool.
Aside from the drama I’ve had recently, that’s how my year’s been going so far. Hope yours has been going as well as expected, too. And don’t be surprised if you see a video post in the near future!
