eat breakfast

Don’t skip breakfast if you wake up early.

This should be common sense but some people need to be educated.

updates

I changed a little of my layout so that it hopefully looks a little more contemporary and not so boring plain and simple. I won a new web cam at TechTV’s The Screen Savers so I had a little fun messing with it to see what I could do. Now, I’m always gonna be watching you…

*huh*

I have taken this day to relax from my trip and need to get down to business starting tomorrow with finances and job hunting and other stuff. I hope I have discipline enough to make things happen.

In other wonderful news, my CD that I mixed, mastered and produced is coming out next week to The Annex up in Boulder. I will hopefully get my 50 copies at the same time or soon thereafter. I really hope that anyone who wants to hear awesome music as well as a lot of hard work will support the ministry and buy a CD. At least buy one because you want to support me. Maybe someday soon I’ll become good enough with music to put a CD of myself out?! … that’s a long time coming but we’ll see where I go in the next few years.

I haven’t worked on putting more pictures up yet but will get to that hopefully this weekend.

the end!

I made it back to Houston tonight so now it’s time to relax! It has been a wonderful trip and I can’t wait until my next one! I will definitely be posting more pictures as well as updating how you download them so it’s more user friendly. I didn’t have much time to do anything on the road because of how busy we were.

I now have a little over 2 weeks to find a job and a place to live. My life is not going to slow down for a while. Yeesh.

I found a very interesting article that brings up many good points about the digital age. This is very educational and you can form your own opinions about what it says.

Legal myths and facts about digital copying

only for your eyes

Я люблю Лайзу подобно, я люблю мои ноги!

Wanna see a few pictures? Go here. I won’t be able to make time for others, but this is a start. There are so many others but these are the ones worth seeing for now I guess. It’s best to download them in numerical order. Have fun!

what weapons?

This is hilarious. Try it out!

1) Go to Google’s website

2) Type in (but don’t hit return): “weapons of mass destruction”

3) Hit the “I’m feeling lucky” button, instead of the normal
“Google search” button

4) Read what appears to be the normal error message carefully.

We’re coming on the last week of travel and shall be home soon. Lots of pictures, probably around 6-700 or so. I’ll try to post a few up this weekend.

last week of trip

We’re in San Francisco, had a lot of fun, took some great pictures, and now we’re on to the rest of our trip. Redwood National Park, Yellowstone National Park, and lots of driving.

This is it because I have a minute left to use this computer.

bay area

We shall be making our journey up Highway 5 to the Bay Area for a few nights. LA has been fun but it’s time to go! I’m sure I’ll be back soon.

Hopefully we’ll have Internet somewhere up in San Francisco so we can upload some pictures. Although there’s Internet right here, we can’t get on with the laptop because it’s through a university connection.

California

We spent a day at the San Diego Zoo yesterday before we drove up to LA. It certainly took about a full 6-7 hours of seeing animals. We probably could have spent more but our feet and bodies were tired! Three thumbs up for this zoo!

After we drove up to LA, we first stopped in Hollywood (again for me). What happens again? I ran into the ESPY award rehearsal. We stood outside for a few hours watching celebs go back into their limos and cars. Not as big as the Oscars however. This event was an ABC/ESPN event so most of the stars were ABC celebs. The biggest people we saw were Andy Dick, Bonnie Hunt, David Allen Grier, Teri Polo (Meet the Parents), and Ernie Hudson (Winston from Ghostbusters). There were lots of other people, half of whom I didn’t know, but I have pictures of most of them. If we had waited long enough or gone back tonight, we could have seen big names like Jim Belushi and other sports stars. I also heard that Mark Paul Gossalar (Zack Morris from Saved by the Bell) was there but didn’t see him!

I have a little picture gallery I made up to post online but can’t get Internet access from Jonathan’s laptop. So if I can at some point, I’ll be sure to upload some pics.

SHOULD WE GO TO SEATTLE or . . .

should we stay in San Francisco a little longer than we have planned? We’re debating on what to do next week because of time issues. If we stay in San Francisco a little longer, we’ll have to skip Seattle and other places like Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Ranier, Crater Lake National Park, etc. But that’ll give us more time to visit San Francisco and see what it’s like. If we end up going to Seattle and NW USA, it’ll be like a stop a go. Just a few hours in one place really. I’m debating on what we should do. I’d really like to see Seattle because I’ve never been there, but it’s the same case with San Francisco. What to do, what to do…

e-mail, call, comments, whatever you wanna do to let us know your opinion!

middle of here and there

Vegas today, San Diego tomorrow. Our trip has been come and go, here and there, going to wherever we can to see whatever we can. It’s been a nice see everything trip and I am happy we have been able to do what we can.

We just got back from the “Matrix: Reloaded” at the IMAX theater in the Luxor. The screen is 7 feet tall and the sound blows you away. It was probably better that I saw the movie in there than in a regular, sub par audio movie theater.

We’ve been to many different hotels, picked up a few cups, taken lots of pictures, and been scorched by the sun way too many times. We had nice buffets last night and tonight and I got stuffed last night! (ask later for details, not pretty…)

The Grand Canyon was awesome. We were sitting outside for about an hour to see the sunset and it was amazing. I have about 20 pictures that I snapped of the sunset alone, maybe more. When I’m able to make the time and have Internet, we’ll upload some of them onto the website for everyone to see.

So meanwhile we’re on this trip, a few of my friends a moving away to other states. :( I hope I can catch y’all sooner than next summer because I love visiting friends in other states and areas that I’m not familiar with. If one of you are reading this, have a safe trip and be in touch soon! If you know someone who is moving away and might not have read this, remind them to read!

I have 24 hours of Internet access from this computer so I better get off before they charge me even more for access. Tomorrow, we see the roadside Dinosaurs (Pee Wee’s Big Adventure) and the Windmill Farm (Mac and Me) both located very close to Palm Springs. Then so the San Diego Zoo in two days!! Lots to do so catch next time!
