and we’re back

we got back from the lan in alamosa around 6:15 — we cleaned up pretty hardcore, and had a damn good time to boot! I won a razor boomslang and a t-shirt … ummm … the ride back was really enjoyable, what with the loud music, hair-blowing wind and the open road. Quite nice.

Steve went to RamCon and he and his clan [SOB] took first place in Counter-Strike. That rocks a ton! I’m thinking that Mike, Craig, Ryan and I, clan [cs], should play him and his boys and show them how it’s done [grin].

Went and saw janelle too — that was rather enjoyable. I made sure to savor every moment cuz I probably won’t see her for like 9 days. We will definately be seeing the play — it’s a good one, and she techs for it too! We are planning on doing some shit tonight … don’t know for sure. Have a great day!

Props: Steve! w00t! All the [cs] guys! WOOOO!

.goddamn.

well, everyone made it out to alamosa just fine for the LAN party here. The drive was pretty uneventful, but we’re looking forward to rawkin’ hard all day tomorrow.

Also, went to a house party tonight … goddamn there were a *ton* of people there. I mean seriously, we couldn’t move. It was a nice long walk, and I think everyone enjoyed it …

That should just about do it … I’ll make sure to post like 20 times tomorrow while lanning — oh btw, I made sure to bring a web cam, so there should be some pics posted soon.

nucking futz!

Craig and Mike just left to go to Kansas to pick up Ryan Parsons [aka spikey w00t] so that he can attend the LAN party in Alamosa with us. It’s like 20 hours round trip … they are out of their minds, but hey, that’s cool.

rock on!

hey it was crazy.. but fun as hell… ROAD TRIP.. yay! party on wayne!

You know what I hate?

When I am using a Q-Tip to clean out my ears, and the ends of the stick, you know, the fluffy cotton parts, come off from the lollipop stick! I HATE THAT! Cuz then it gets all loose and ragged, sticks to your ear canal, stops working and generally sucks.

I thought they sonicly [sp?] welded those things to the little rod … how can they come off? I’m sure they get lots of complaints about them, but do they do anything besides push the idea of ‘use one that isn’t fubar’d’ ? Sure, that works, but it’s kind of wasteful on the Q-Tip resources — especially when a person doesn’t buy their own.

That Q-Tip falling apart … Jesus, that irritates the shit out of me.

and it’s another day

been a little while since I posted, so here’s a recap. Uhh … monday … came to work. boring. went home, got computer, went to craig’s, played CS till like 4am. Came home, passed out, woke up around 9. Came to work at 10. boring. left work. went to craig’s. more cs till about 11:45 [yes, I know, dear]. Went home. Crashed. Woke up at 7. Dropped off truck @ firestone. got honda. came to work. boring. …

Now that that is said and done … I am going to alamosa this weekend to participate in a lan party there, instead of going to RamCon. RamCon sent out a waiver sheet that has some absurd requirements, that you have to accept to go:

[ ] I understand that there will be minors at the event. I will not bring alcohol, tobacco, or adult-oriented material to the event with intent to distribute them to minors. I understand that should I provide access to any of these to any underage attendee of the event, I will be prosecuted to the fullest extent allowed by law.

[ ] I will not participate in the illegal copying of any copyrighted material.

Now seriously, what good is a LAN if you can’t spread p0on and if you can’t leech the hell out of everything in sight? Oh, and the other ‘great’ part about RamCon — a 10mb network! That’s right! Despite having access to *TONS* of 10/100 switches & routers, the admins decided to go 10mb to stop the spreading of porn/warez and to stop internet traffic. Oh, and don’t forget that 3Com donated a lots of shitty-ass 10bT hubs for use … with the stipulation that if 3Com is going to be a sponsor, those hubs have to be used! Way to sell out, RamCon execs!!!

On another note, I saw this hilariously funny quote today …

It isn’t pre-marital sex if you don’t plan on getting married.

It is definately going on the quotes page.

just a couple of things

before I crash into oblivion.

— Money from the government [$332] is good.
— Steve Chapin is an incredible guy. simply amazing.
— Counter-Strike is as addictive as crack. still.
— Alamosa is a long ways away.
— 4:50am if really, really late. or early. hrmm.

I also found out that the United States Postal Service doesn’t suck as bad as it could; it cost only $6.35 to send my shoes to Oregon via 2 day air, with $100 insurance. Pretty incredible. I hope they come back soon. Oddly enough, I will be awake again in less than three hours, bright eyed and bushy tailed at the prospect of a brand new day. WOOO!

Man, you know some fucked up people, that’s cute.

sobering

My grandfather, who is stricken with Alzheimer’s Disease, is like a little kid without the energy. He is not the grandfather I know; It is past heart-wrenching to spend time with him.

laaazy daaays

It’s a lazy sunday, let me tell you. I woke up around 10, but didn’t do anything all morning. Went to church, stopped by janelle’s work and came home. That’s been about it …

My parents have officially decided to move to Utah. They have chosen a house and the paperwork is started; they will be living in utah by the second week of august.

A tentative house hunt begins — I’m thinking of seeing if I can get a place with craig, possibly with matt & tony in there. Would be nice to have tony, cuz then we’d have his huge-ass tv & playstation 2. Craig needs a place by the end of next month; I want to help him, but don’t see myself able to; I have a place till the end of july, and I’m not too hot on spending money on a place if I don’t have to.

My thinking is to either get a house or to get a *huge* apartment; cramped is bad. I mean bad. Gotta have space. Gotta have bucks, too. Workin’ on that one.

‘ "

whoa

feels like it’s been a while since I posted, but it’s only been [goes and checks] … 2 days! Holy Cow! Anywho, here’s a quick recap for the day …

woke up [10am-ish]
ate
went downtown
went to janelle’s
went to the mall
went to craig’s
went to tony’s [party]
came home

Wow, lots of wenting … Spending some time with janelle was really nice; not something I get to do often. We talked over a couple of things, as is usually the case, and it was good. The mall was okay; I bought some cargos from the clearance rack @ GAP. i picked up craig and went to tony’s place. tony’s party was fun, but no one showed. that part sucked. the queso was good though.

I realized a couple of things recently:
1. you don’t know what you have till it’s gone == true
2. the people around you *do* affect you
3. alcohol is definitely not a friend
4. gas is too damn expensive
5. i do not sleep, eat or work out enough

btw, quotes are updated — sound off in the comments.

2001-04-22 14:21:51 – LAURA!
randal, wow, what realizations :-) here are mine. 1. you may not know what you have until it’s gone, but it’s crazy to dwell on that fact, or try to predict what isn’t going to be in your life anymore, and what is. i think that leads to paranoia. 2. the people around us affect us…yeah. 3. alcohol is fun! yay! <do i sound like i go to CU, yet?>, but when it becomes your friend, that means you need to be going 12-step, so, i’m glad you’re not an alcoholic, yet :-) 4. gas is about twenty cents more in Boulder. 5. no one sleeps, eats, or works out enough unless they are rich and/or famous and have a personal trainer that lives in the spare bedroom in the basement. love ya
