Mmmm, Dinner. And other stuff.

I would like to say that I made a wonderful dinner tonight. We had some huge, brilliantly cooked ribeye steaks, with about three pounds of Snow Crab, corn on the cob, garlic bread, the works. It was awesome. There’ll be some photos of this amazing meal up soon. [b]**Updated:[/b] [L=http://rand0m.org/images/bigdinner.jpg]Picture of our awesome meal[/L] Friday night, I shot everclear. That was not a good experience. It was one of those nights where I was really loathing myself, and was rather disappointed with myself … so … I sorta got over it by abusing the shit out myself. It made me hurt pretty bad on Saturday. I really don’t know why I did it, but hey, that’s what happens. I went and played pool recently. That was good. Janina is pretty fun to hang out with — smart, fun, just cynical enough … but you know, she’s 18? 19? I am afraid of girls, though. heh. :-) I went to church this morning with my parents. That was surprisingly a good time. It wasn’t a religious thing at all … more of an academic interest. There were some talks about faith and such which were meh, but then a very good class about the passover. I saw some people I hadn’t seen in a while, and that was good. Then I had lunch w/ the ‘rents, and it was good, and then I came home, went shopping and made the huge dinner mentioned above. Work is going crazy. Our deployment in [L=http://www.hpi.net/falcon/]Falcon[/L] is exploding, which is making for busy busy busy busy busy work. The business is going well, also … a little slow, but it is progressing. EverLAN is this next weekend, as is July 4th. We’re having a barbecue, which I believe is starting at 2pm — I’ll update with that info soon.

Yeah dude… Janina is the fucking BOMB. I really miss her. I used to hang out with her at Dewey’s house. Wild parties usually ensued, Followed closely by me being a huge teddybear and her cuddling up on my shoulder. good times ™. -Tim

You guys having a 4th of July party?
2003-07-02 21:52:36 – fourdegrees
yeah, make with the details. :) I fly in Friday morning at 10, Emily is picking me up and we’re heading down to the Springs from there. Cool if we crash with you guys after all the fun? /having a great time in NV and can’t wait for the next weberstreet party
2003-07-03 11:26:08 – WC
MMM t3 in 2 days. I so wanna go .. but I have an important LAN party to goto. *suck* BTW I’ll be down in the springs tomarrow night πŸ˜‰

Threw a huge party last night

Will have photos up and such ASAP. [b]Update[/b] – 06/25 @ 2:52p Okay, so the party went really well. I was afraid that nobody was going to show up, and that was the case until like 9:30. Gabe and Matt Blum showed up, which is neato, because they know a lot of people … Gabe fired up his cell and in no time we had a whole house full of people rockin out. The sound system was absolutely huge (a little too loud sometimes) with some damn-good DJs spinning it up. We had a full keg of Belgian Ale from the warehouse which received mixed results from our throngs of partyers. Tore made a surprise appearance — he drove all the way from Santa Fe, NM for the party! Not to mention that he finally had SE.. er … *IS* a SEXy beast! *hugs tore* πŸ˜‰ Had a *LOT* of hot chicks come, which was really surprising because we usually throw grandiose sausage fests. A lot of people I invited did not show because of prior engagements and such, which made me really sad :-( Tony got *REALLY DRUNK* *REALLY FAST*. By 11pm he was barely standing, and at 11:30pm we had someone carry him upstairs to pass out. He didn’t even drink very much … what a lightweight. At about 2:00am, Matt disappeared mysteriously, leaving me to run the show. Everyone who was leaving was out by 6:30 or so, and everyone who was staying was already passed out. It was a really, really long night for me, because I had had very little sleep and got to enjoy running the party alone for 4+ hours. But it all turned out well, which is what matters πŸ˜€ We lost a pane of glass in our front door and a couple different drinking glasses to some drunk dumbass. Had a couple little skirmishes here and there, but all in all it went really, really well. We’re looking to either have a 4th of July BBQ or to throw another party at the end of summer.

2003-06-24 14:10:25 – mark
Yeah, about this asap business, what exactly does that mean, "asap"?
2003-06-24 14:36:52 – rand0m
It means As Soon As i fucking feel like it Punk. I ran into some issues with the Wal-Greens folks because the pictures turned out like shit … like, they’re cropped and just look terrible. I’ll post what I have, with hopefully some better ones to come. Maybe.
2003-06-24 15:32:20 – The Disco Nova
Well, I will be able to come to the next one, might even make some of my apparently famous jello shots.
2003-06-24 16:07:37 – fourdegrees
yay! the party was great fun…sucks Emily and I didn’t get to stay long…isn’t she hot? πŸ˜€

It’s decided, you need to have another party, and soon.
2003-06-26 01:34:16 – tony
maybe we’re having a party on the 29th of july that is all
2003-06-27 09:01:50 – betty
Damn, I’m sorry I missed it, and I missed it for a stupid reason, we went up to Enigma in Denver to see DJ Irene… It was ok, but not half as much fun as your party would have been! You should do a 4th of July party… that would be nice… Yea so I’m really sorry I missed all the fun. Even sorrier that I couldn’t make fun of Tony… hee hee.. I WILL be there for your next party, I think this is the first one I’ve missed so far, I think? That makes me sad that I missed it… Oh well next time… L8tr…
2003-06-27 09:38:04 – tony
I too am disappointed that I couldn’t make fun of Tony.

Two Words: Bicycle Urinal.

Girl/Date, Poker, Underground, Misc, Party

This is gonna be a long update, because I haven’t posted in a long time. Like, a Loooong time. So I’m going to start out like a couple weeks ago or so. Heh. Told you it was long. Okay, so a couple weekends ago, I am out with Chris Bonk and Keen, and we go to Sticks to shoot some pool, but they are 21 and up, so we leave and to Corner Pocket. While there, we meet two girls, Lilly and Kirsten. It is Lilly’s birthday (23) and Kirsten looks oddly familiar. So we start chatting, and they invite us over to Lilly’s place to get lit. So we head over there, and I’m mackin on Kirsten, and Chris is mackin on Lilly, so I ask Matt, our fifth wheel, to drive my truck home and spare himself the agony of watching the four of us get it on. So he leaves. And then Chris and Lilly disappear. So Kirsten and I chill on the couch, and around 6am, Chris comes out of Lilly’s room and leaves. So then Kirsten invites me over to her place. That’s cool. So we go over there, get completely blasted and proceed to have a great time until approximately 11:00am, and then we pass out until 6pm (saturday). That was a good weekend. 10 days after that, I call up Kirsten and ask her on a date. Kind of backwards, you know? Fuck, then date instead of Date then fuck. Backwards, you know? So then on Wednesday of last week, we go out. Long story short, meet at Joe’s Crabshack at 7, go to a carnival around 9, stay till 10:30pm, ends with a hug and a kiss and that was that. I don’t know if I’ll go on another date with her. Nice girl, just not my type. Odd to say that, what with me being so super desperate πŸ˜‰ *goes and hits on receptionist* So then this past Friday night, Tony had our poker buddies over to play Poker. This was not an ordinary night. I was in good spirits, and glibly paid my $5 buy in. End of the night rolls around, and I’m $17 ahead. Rock the hizzy. That was a good night. Mexican Sweat = good times. Went to the Underground on Saturday night and had a wonderful time. They had DJ Etaine, DJ MLE and Evenflo downstairs, with the whole [L=http://www.downstairsproductions.net]DownStairsProductions[/L] crew upstairs. The music was really good (despite not being a happy hardcore fan), and I had a wonderful time. I wanted to kill my sorta-friend Chris because he has the Can’t Keep His Dick In His Pants syndrome … Seriously, isn’t two chicks enough? Makes me want to punch his lights out. Fucker. Grr. My truck is making a ticking sound. Either needs a valve job (time consuming but cheap) or has an exhaust leak? I was on the porch yesterday on Sunday chilling with Shawn and his girl Emily when this silver car pulls up in front of our house. I stood there, grungy as shit (hadn’t taken a shower or shaved, wearing basketball shorts and a lounge-TShirt), wondering who the hell that was. Then the two girls in the car started waving, so I looked at Shawn, and he was waving back uncertainly, so then I looked back and sorta waved, and then one of the girls yelled “It’s Janelle!” and I was like “whoa that voice sounds familiar. Oh, hey, is that Janelle?” So then I went over and chatted for like 10 seconds before they had to stop blocking traffic/leave. Feels odd yet refreshing that I didn’t really recognize her … I don’t know what to think aobut the whole situation. Heh. There is a party at my place, Friday night at 9pm.

I would like to say that the Church of Satan, and LaVeyan Satanism in general has nothing to do with satan. That being said, I would like to state that I am holding an auction on one slightly tarnished soul, previous owner Randallll Kohutek.

i hate selling my sole, because then one shoe isn’t as comfortable as the other.

I bought Matt Killday’s soul for 2 pennies, a prozac, and some other trivial bit. Then I sold it for a watch. It didn’t work.
2003-06-18 12:36:25 – Tony
Good news and bad news Good news is I have a soul, still Bad news is it has an expiration date
2003-06-18 13:23:15 – [SOB]GrooveMan
That ticking sound is almost guaranteed to be a valve, not closing or opening correctly. I have the exact same problem with my Bronco. The solution for me is to get some Roller Rockers. There really cool and all, but expensive, 300 Bones for the set. You’ll problem only need new springs.

My boss is a comms guy so I told him about the white paper. He liked it a lot. Now the rest of us need to write white papers. I’m going to do mine on usurping freedom of movement from height-disadvantaged individuals, in other words, restraining midgets. It’s always been a passion.

Matt – couldn’t Sun have picked a better acronym than "ASS"? That’s just asking to make fun of – unless of course you’re answering some moron’s question: Q: "What do you do?" A: "I’m a Software Systems Engineer, ASS!" That is probably far less funnier than I think it is – but it’s 2 in the morning, so if you don’t like it you can all fuck off.

yeah, but as usual for me, this involves my vacation time being cancelled, no camping trip I had been planning for three bloody months, my sister proves herself to be a mindless drone, thus f*cking me over at work, and the hiring of a stupid little b^tch who can’t do the job. SO, I will be coming to the party, bring liquor etc., aksjdfklsjdf;alsjdf

All midgets should be required by law to carry around grappling hooks and rope… they dont have to use them, but i think a bunch of midgets walking around with grappling hooks would be one of the funniest things ive ever seen.

Further proof humanity is doomed- 4 days after Bill Hicks is buried- world famous, but almost unheard of in the U.S., Carrot Top wins the top American comedy award. FOUR DAYS!! F^cking blaspheme. I hate people.
2003-06-16 02:34:11 – Reverend
Yeah.. i have always hated carrot top.. he is probably the least funny comedian I know, and on top of that.. isnt a comedian supposed to make people happy? Not infuriate a nation. Boo.
2003-06-16 18:48:23 – Mr Mountains
The topic of Carrottop is a touchy one. The man has made many mistakes in the past, and I hated him for it. I just wasn’t funny, ever. His commercials continue this trend, but when I heard him talk in an interview about a year ago, my outlook on the man changed. He made fun of himself, totally dogged some other people, and was amusing to listen to. Naturally, I was stunned. He is being type cast now a days, and who can blame him for taking the cash? Same thing applies to that guy who played the straight man dad on Full House. The guy is funny as hell, but his days on that demonic show will taint him forever. Also, did anyone notice that Carrottop is actually buff? Weird huh?
2003-06-17 11:59:45 – tony
Well hiking trip up Barr trail got postponed, but planning on weekend of August 2 for hiking up to Pikes Peak and back down. If get some interest may make it into a 2 day hike/camp trip, possibly camping over the top at the crags. Interested? Also, Jack Johnson/Ben Harper concert August 27/28 at Red Rocks. Haven’t listened to that much Jack Johnson, but sounds like a good excuse to check out the famous red rocks.

Actually, we are planning to camp out about a mile away from a lake, catching dinner/ lunch/ breakfast, and gutting the fish in the fine and icy waters alongside the shore. See, when I go camping, we pack tents, sleeping bags, jiffy pop, clothes, and fishing poles.
2003-06-06 00:34:48 – in a
jiffy pop, wtf?
2003-06-06 07:44:26 – netheus
Jiff pop- the kind that comes in the tin foil-ish pan that hold over the camp fire/ stove top/ availible heat source, and as the pop corn pops, the top expands into a ball, like a popcorn bag. It’s so yummy…. mmmm….. jiffy pop…..

I can’t make it either. I am going to be camping near Steamboat. :-/ sorry Randy. If you did it on the 27th I could make it πŸ˜‰ … We should plan a trip to Alamosa and party with Ian. Make it a 3-day weekend this summer!
