Today I asked the chef in the cafeteria if he could make me some tempura fried bacon. He said he would have it ready for me tomorrow.
If you never ask then you never know what you might be missing. ;)

Today at work I gave my coworker a high-ten after hashing out a new process for how to deal with the confusion that occurs when someone is having trouble uploading a .gameconfig file to PartnerNet during a BVT.
When the HELL did I become a management nerd!?!?!

Dreams where you are fighting with your dead dad over really stupid shit is not a great way to get woken up in the middle of the night.

|Ride to Carnation?
Sooo... the shop that was supposed to fix the brakes on my car decided they can't fix them. Now I need to tow my car out to Carnation to my usual mechanic who I know will be able to take care of things properly, but that means that I'm also going to need a ride back from Carnation when I drop my car off.
Anybody want to follow me to Carnation on Friday after work and then drive me back to Bellevue?

|How to get upset for no good reason...
Instructions for how to get upset for no good reason:
Step 1: Buy an awesome car that is missing a few key parts, like a wiper arm or a front license plate mount.
Step 2: Spend a year looking for said parts while trying to avoid tickets for not having a front license plate and having to deal with having only one wiper blade on the front windshield when driving in the rain.
Step 3: Finally find a parts car down in Tacoma that has said parts and make arrangements to pick them up instead of going to the most awesome gaming convention ever with all your friends.
Step 3b: Make a lot of excuses for why you can't go to PAX.
Step 4: Call and mail the guy with the parts car in question to ask about other parts and confirm the pickup, but not be able to get a hold of him.
Step 5: Get a hold of him on the day of the pickup just before you head out the door for the scheduled pickup only to find out that the boneheads at the shop already junked the car before pulling off the parts that they said they would sell you.
Step 6: Confirm that the car has been crushed, along with all your hopes and dreams of finally ending your quest.
So, yeah, that happened...
Now I'm off to chill and party on Erin's boat and try not to dwell on how pissed off I am.

|This is not the anime night your looking for! < waves hand dramatically >
So it sounds like a bunch of people want to hang out at my place Friday night, but that enough people who wanted to attend the "Satoshi Kon Memorial Anime Night" won't be able to make it that I will postpone that for another time.
So come hang out at my place tomorrow after work, and depending on who shows up there may or may not be anime.

|Gamer needs Room for Rent.
A gamer friend of mine from out of town is looking for a room to rent. She is looking for something that is in or near Seattle that she can rent for 3 to 6 months. She would also like to move in near the beginning of October if possible.
If you know of or have a room that is available let me know and I will put you in contact with her.

|RIP Satoshi Kon
I just discovered that Satoshi Kon died last Tuesday. To people who don't know who he is, that's ok. He happens to be one of my all time favorite heroes of the anime production world.
I have wanted to start up an anime night at my house since I first saw my new apartment, so I think I'm going to start out by showing a couple of his pieces. Who would be interested in this and when would be a good time for everyone?
I'm thinking this will be at least a couple of weeks out. This will give me some time to get things ready and pick up a few more of his films. It will also give everyone else some time to figure out how to fit it into their schedules. This summer is crazy busy and nobody has much free time right now.

|One last push!
I still have a bunch of stuff that needs to be moved and cleaned tonight, including the couch with no truck to move it.
I know that this is a really busy weekend for everyone, but if anyone still has the time and inclination to swing by and help out even for a little while I would love to see you there.

|Time to move the furniture! (Thursday, July 29th at 6pm)
This Thursday, July 29th at 6pm, is when I’m moving the stuff that’s too big to fit in my car. I have one truck already scheduled to be there (Thanks Derrek!) but more are always welcome.
The more hands we have the easier this will be and the faster we’ll be done. Tell me in advance if you’re going to be there and what food and beverage you want.
Anybody that isn’t up for heavy lifting but still wants to help out, the place needs some serious cleaning. I’ll bring cleaning supplies if anyone wants to help scrub.
|Saturday, July 17th, 2010|
So out of the four of us living in the Mockery, I’m totally the last one to actually find my new place and start moving, even though I was the that decided we were going to move out in the first place. :P ( Bad News, Good NewsCollapse )

Since both Dave Snyder and myself just got new jobs at about the same time, he has decreed that we shall attend in celebration at a nearby Irish Pub knows as the Wilde Rover. (http://www.wilderover.com/
All who can make it, should gather at our place by 7:15 since the pub is in walking distance.

Late this week my gimpy phone decided to go into it's final death throes. The screen is completely blank all the time now so I can not receive or send text messages and I can't navigate the phone menus to do much of anything. I can still receive incoming calls, and I can call back the last person who called me (although I won't be able to tell who that is until they answer the phone) but that is about it. The regular speaker for the phone is also almost dead, but thankfully I have already memorized the menu to turn on the speaker phone so I can do that much blind.
Last night it went one up on that and decided to turn itself off without warning, while charging, and while I was sleeping.
A new phone is on it's way and I'll be able to switch over early next week, but until then my communication options are a bit crippled. Anyone wanting to get a hold of me this weekend, if I don't answer, wait a bit and try calling me again. Current Mood: grumpy

|Looking for airport rides on October 2nd and October 5th.
I am heading out to Idaho to visit my sister Bina and help her move out of her old apartment. I could use a ride to and from the airport to keep from having to deal with an airport shuttle or a taxi.
Leaving October 2nd:
Flight 2426 on Horizon Air leaves at 3:00 pm. Need to be at the airport by 2:00 pm at the latest, earlier would be better.
Coming home October 5th:
Flight 2391 on Horizon Air arrives at 11:15 am. As long as I get home faster than waiting for a bus I am happy.

|PSA: Swine Flu confirmed at PAX.
Penny-Arcade has posted that at least one case of swine flu has been confirmed in a PAX attendee.
First: Don't Panic!
Second: Take care of your self. If you feel sick take it easy and tread the symptoms as aggressively as you can on your own. You might not have swine flu, but getting sick from something else can still leave you vulnerable and swine flu is now in the area.
Third: If you or anyone you know who might have swine flu starts to exhibit some of the stronger symptoms of flu, contact your local doctor or hospital for advice.
Swine Flu is stronger and more dangerous than a normal influenza virus, but not nearly by as much as some of the media has led you to believe. However it does spread VERY easily. If you went to PAX and have any flu like symptoms, or start to feel ill after being exposed to someone who got sick from attending PAX, stay at home to keep it from spreading.
For updates, Penny-Arcade
is continuing to track confirmed cases. If you are confirmed by a doctor to have contracted swine flu and traveled from out of town, email email@example.com
and give him your flight information.
For more information on swine flu (or H1N1 Influenza) you can read up on it on Wikipedia
, but I would also recommend you check out this article
as well. It summarizes what has been learned from recent H1N1 outbreaks in other countries and puts some of the media induced panic back in perspective. This is a scary epidemic because of what it COULD do if it changed it's behavior, not because of what it actually DOES do. Yes, it can be potentially lethal, but so can ANY flu virus and this one is only slightly more dangerous than usual.

|The quest is over, let the raiding begin!
I have a house!
Picking up the keys in an hour and the place is slick. Anyone that wants to help with the move, let me know. I will be moving boxes of stuff all week. Not sure yet when I am going to move the furniture.

|Lv 31 Mog: LFG
I just found out that I am loosing my current house and need to be moved out by May 15th.
I need a new place to stay and while usually I am very picky about where I live, this time around I might have to broaden my horizons a bit. The one requirement that I don't want to budge on if I don't have to is keeping my commute to work at less than 20-30 minutes and I am currently working in Redmond right on the end of 520.
So if anyone knows of an apartment, condo, house or town home that is close enough and has space available, let me know. I am also looking at lofts, studios and one bedroom dwellings that I could rent by myself.
