well, i finally got my good router back, so Livejournal works again...
maybe i'll take some time to start back posting, but there's not really much to post about now, maybe something later.
So, since i haven't updated for a while i figured it was aboutt iem for another one... okay, that was a lie, the WoW server i'm on (Burning Legion) and several of the other older ones are down tonight to FINALLY get thier new hardware, which is awesome, it just means no playing tonight, because the remaining servers are so full of people doing starting quests you can't find the pegenning spawns to kill them, so i'm just giving up for now...
Also, as of sometime monday afternoon, me and jesica are engaged, we're still working on the date and all, but thinking sometime in january...
In the next couple of weeks, it looks like i'll be getting moved back to working in the monroe office, which isn't exactly bad news, i'll be getting less money for mileage, but since i've gotten a raise since the mileage pay started it should be fine, the biggest problem will be having to work around sandy, who is coming back from maternity leave sometime next week, and is undoubtedly still not a pleasant person to be on the same continent with.
So far my class this semester has been thouroughly boring, but i've actually gone to all (2) of them so far... now i just have to stop being lazy and read the homework before next monday.
okay then, i guess that's about it... i guess i might go play a console game, or watch some anime, neither of which have i done since starting WoW.

I just bought this video card
to replace the 128mb one i have now...
Hopefully now WoW will look prettier.
Next i need 165.00 to get this RAM
The worst part is going to be waiting a week for it to get here.
So that spoiler i posted about...
I dodn't win the auction, it ended up going for around 150.00 + 35.00.
But i guess it's good that i didn't win it, because i had a little less money in my account than i thought, and forgot that i needed to buy a book for the class i'm taking, so my car is going to have to keep the crappy little spoiler for a while longer, unless i take it off and sell it to raise money for the one i want.
Even though it's just one class, i'm finally getting around to starting back at the whole college thing.
Unfortunately the class i wanted turned out to not be offered when i'm off work, so instead of math, i'm taking a history class. It's from 6:30 to 9:00 on mondays, it shouldn't be too bad once i get used to having a class on monday nights again.
The class is history 201, hopefully they'll be covering generally the same stuff at the history 201 at ULM that jessica is taking, i would have tried to sign up for the same class as her, but that would have cost about twice as much, and paying 300.00 for one class is enough for me...
Anyway, i'm gonna go play some more games and try to kill the remaining 50 minutes of my work week.
So, i'm at work, finally on a computer that i'm not temped to download, or play WoW on, so i'll be updating livejournal, since there's nothing going on here...
Last weekend (not yesterday the one before that) i finally got a new car, me and jessica drove to shreveport saturday to get it, it's a blue chevy cobalt, i'll post some pictures of it later, when i get back to my computer and can use my card reader, the only thing i did't really like about the car is that it's an automatic, but it has XM radio, and a built in sub, so that makes up for it...
This weekend... i was in shreveport, we went to see Lady in the water, and Talladega Nights, neither was as good as i'd hoped they'd be, but of the two, Talladega nights was definately the better, the biggest problem with it was they tried to make it make too much sense in parts, if they would have just kept it pointless and random, like they did with anchorman it would have been a lot better.
This morning i've been working on getting the last of my parerwork faxed in so i can start back taking classes next semester, now i just have to wait for them to send my transcript, and come up with some money to pay for the class...
Since i never take the time off from WoW to post when i'm at home, i thought i'd do a little update since there's nothing going on, and i'm the only one here...
So to start off, it's raining... pretty hard, which i usually like, but not so much today because i have a crazy headache and don't really feel like being here today anyway.
I finally heard from the other guy's insurance company yesterday, they only offered me 8,100 for the car, and since we didn't accept that they're not going to pay for anything, and we're gonna have to file with my company and let them fight it out with the other guy's, but that still leaves me with no rental car, and no definate time when i should get my money...
I've been trying to look at cars more, but it keeps raining every time i have a chance to go look, and from the sound of it, that's how it'll stay, at least until the end of the week...
At this point i'm pretty sure i'll be getting a Cobalt, i found a 2005 cobalt LS, that i liked in shreveport, the only "problem" is that it was automatic, so i decided to check monroe, there don't seem to be any around though...
This time i've decided against the new cars though, i don't really need to be picking up a 200+$ car payment, expecially with my insurance probably going up, and other expenses that'll be coming up in the not too distant future...
i guess i'm gonna go try to find something online to amuse myself for another 2 and a half hours so i can go home...
Also, i made lv 26 last night, and i re-speced from a destruction focus, to full affliction... WoW is much easier now...
Of people acting out old video game things...
Like Atari old.Pong Space Invaders!
The space invaders one is better, both are a little longer than they needed to be, but still they're pretty cool
My car again, but this time was neither my fault, or the usual engine problems, this time it's more a problem with like the right half, anf the front, and the back, all suddenly collapsing or something to that effect...
Long story short, i didn't change lanes to let a guy over, so he got pissed off, and tried to run me off the road with his trailor...
So i'm pretty sure my car is totaled, since it's only worth about 6 and a half thousand...
But the good news is i didn't get a ticket, the other guy did, and somebody stopped that saw it and told the cops it was the other guy's fault...
So first off i have to find a car, or a rental of some type to last me until i find out how much i'm getting and if i'm gonna have to buy a new one or what, it looks like it'll be a minimum of ten days...
I think i'll be going to the wrecking yard tomorrow, so i'll try to get some pictures of it to post...
It also broke some parts on my computer, which was in the back seat, luckily buckled up or it've been worse than it was.
And as a result of that my night has kind of sucked...
I think next weekend i'm gonna start looking at some new used cars to replace this one, since i'm going to need one ASAP.
But, on a better note, last weekend was cool for the most part... we did absolutely nothing the whole time, and sunday afternoon / night the electricity was out, and i didn't get to sleep until about 5:30...
true that's not why it was such a good weekend, but just trust me, it was...
also, the 5:30 AM thing could explain why i'm falling asleep right now.
anyway, i'll try to update tomorrow with some pictures.

Yep, i'm updating 2 days in a row, the reason being that "Burning Legion" server is being none too friendly tonight, before i finally got tired of it and logged off it was taking me almost 8 seconds just to open a bag, or get responses from NPCs...
In addition to that tonight's random bursts of really bad lag were lasting around 45 seconds, when it ended my whole party was dead... repetedly.
Then there was the lack of healers that wanted to do low level instances, lack of being none, the closest we could find was a shaman, and you ca't get too far with 2 warriors, a mage, and a warlock, none of whom can heal worth crap...
I was supposed to make level 21 tonight, but it doesn't look like that'll be happenning, but i'll probably try again later.
So i'm using this server-declared time out to update LJ, and watch some Anime (Bleach)
Well, it's been quite a while since my last post, mostly i've been WoW... like a lot, i've gotten to level 19 already, in fact i'm posting because this weeks patch is downloading slower than any one file should ever be allowed to download.
Now to quickly cover the last few weeks.
The usual work, not really busy, so it's been mostly sitting around bored.
Two weekends ago, me and jessica went to the sale at circut city, as well as best buy, EB games, and Gamestop, at circuit city we got:
Half life 2
Karaoke Revolution 3
Dragon Ball Z: Sagas
Wild Arms 4
Fable Special edition
From Best Buy
World of Warcraft (For Jessica)
We went to see a couple of movies
Superman, and Pirates of the Caribbean.
Neither of which were all that great...A fairly accurate review of Pirates of the Caribbean
And superman spent all it's time working up to him throwing a rock...
We also went to Kobe, a sushi and hibachi place in shreveport, and had some pretty awesome sushi...
well, my download is finished, later people...
I haven't updated in just over a week now, the reason, still (during the weeks) being World of Warcraft, which i've been playing a lot (but not obsessively like the other MMORPGs i've played)...
Last weekend we played paintball for most of the day saturday, i hadn't played paintball in probably about a year or so, and to make a long story short, it hurt... not the actual paintball, afterwards, walking standing... yeah not much fun, but after about a day or two i was fine.
Monday morning my phone broke, it kept restarting, and would lock up every time i closed it, or left it sitting too long, or bumped it, pretty much just all the time, so i checked onlind, and i couldve gotten a phone upgrade about 3 months ago, this afternoon i ordered a new one, (nokia because i'm tired of sony ericcson) and it only cost $3.00...
I get paid tomorrow, then between my phone bill, ticket, and shreveport tomorrow night, i get to spend it all...
Oh yeah, and even though i told her this monday, i'm gonna say a belated online happy birthday to rxjessica
And i guess that's about ll for now, i'm gonan go wait for jessica to get off work so i can talk to her for a litle while
- Music:Uverworld - Mixed up
So, the reason i haven't been updating much lately, is a combination of the usual not having (or taking) the time on weekends, and playing World of warcraft, which i can't play tonight, since the most recent download doesn't seem to want to work.
I had some pictures to upload in this post but between taking the pictures and getting to my computer, i seem to have lost the memory card, i found an older one, but lost the one with the pictures on it.
I decided i wanted to put pictures in here, so i retook it...
I got these for 2.00 each at Goodwill, i'm particularly happy about finding the "Mike Tyson's Punch Out"
for 1.50 since it's supposed to be relatively hard to find, even though this one isn't in the best shape, i didn't figure a dollar fifty was bad for it.
Last weekend we didn't really do a whole lot, we watched a few DVDs: Underworld Evolution, and The Ringer...
The ringer was pretty much almost a chich flick in a weird sort of way, Underworld, was rather disappointing , nowhere near as good as the first one.
Also we went and saw Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift, which wasn't bad, but when you put that many pretty cars in a movie you don't really have to worry about plot, so it's pretty much a sure thing...
I odered a new computer case
, to replace jessica's old one that got messed up while it was in the trunk of my car... and a case fan for my computer last weekend.
And i guess that's about it.

So, this week at work i've actually worked for something like 3 hours if you include the time i spent just typing stuff up on the computer so it'd take longer... They told me summers were slow, but really this is annoying.
Last night i started a trial account on WoW, i'm an Undead Warlock, i think i'm going to restart tonight though, because i don't really like the name i ended up with, so many of them were taken i just kept hitting the random name generator until one registered... that name happened to be "Gander"...
I got paid today, which is good since i'm broke, betwen my checking account, and the change i got off my bedroom floor i have $10.90, i'm spending $5.00 for lunch, so if i can make it back to monroe on $4.00, to deposit my check that'll be good. Also, my raise started, the only problem is that even though i'm making significantly more, they're taking out $113.00 in taxes, that's stupid...
i guess that's about it right now though...
It's been a few days since my last (real) update, mostly because there's really nothing worth posting aout going on...
Today at work kind of sucked, first off i pretty much felt like crap, allergy/ sinus junk, headache, you name it, it probably wasn't feeling good... also the other guy hurt his back on his first run this morning, soooo... i got to do everything else, i was driving from 10:00 this morning, to 4:45 this afternoon.
After work, while messing around with those wooden swords i mentioned a while back, with jordan, i managed to jam the middle finger on my right hand, so needless to say that typing is quite interesting tonight, also i mostly destroyed my foam covered one, and one of my wooden ones is about 3/4 as long as it was this morning...
People keep asking me what i did over the weekend, about normal, right?
the thing is, that i really can't remember doing much of anything last weekend, i really don't remember a whole lot, at least nothing that you want to hear about...
Last week i bought a few new, used games, i got Prince of Persia, Arc the Lad, and Lifeline (the one you control with the mic), and jessica got severa of the PS2 headsets, since we found them on sale at Wal-Mart for $7.50...
and now, i think i'm gonna give my finger a break, an go watch some Bleach while i wait for Jssica to call...

Does anybody know how to make it so there's a text box in a post, where you can put HTML and still have it displayed as text?
i've seen it done in various places around LJ, but just have no idea how to do it myself...

Right now i'm unloading my portable hard drives onto my computer, so about all it'll run is mozilla, so i'll update.
I spent most of the afternoon (after work) fixing the window in my car, it ended up taking a little over 3 hours, which is longer than it should have, but it's finally fixed, now i can wash m car for the first time in abut 2 months...
Work today was alright, first thing this morning i had to copy and file a stack of stuff, which only killed about an hour and a half, then they sent me to buy random office supplies... then i had to bull the weeds out of the flowerbed in front of the office, the only tool i had to do whis with was a box cutter taped to a broomhandle, it was officially dubbed "The Broomspear bane of the weeds" and it truly was... until i hit a brick with it... it made a nice sound when the blade broke off and went flying across the yard though... then i went home, see first paragraph...
Now, to further destroy the continuity of the timeline in this post, i'll go back over my weekend.
Once again, the majority of it was spend hanging out with jesica while she worked at the show cone stand.
On friday night we decided to go see a movie, it was The Breakup... it sucked... there were a few good parts, but not enough to really make it worth it though, jessica's friend wanted to stay and see if anything happened after the credits... so we all had to wait until that was over to leave, i swear i was the only guy in the theatre by the time we left... anyway, the movie, not really reccomended...
Also, over the weekend, i finished downloading like a billion episodes of Bleach, and everything up to the most recent of Naruto (which is starting to get rather boring they need to end the filler quickly), and a whole crapload of random music...
I think i was going to post something else, but i just caught myself staring at the wall, and went completely blank, so i'm not even gonna try to remember what it was, so i think i'm going to go play a video game or something, later

Pretty much nothing happenning, i alternated between killing time on my computer, and sharpening, or reshaping my throwing knives, there have been a few that weren't liking to stick recently, so i put a back edge, and a more narrow tip on a few of them, it seemed to help, i also sharpened one of my brother's old swords... keeping an edge on that thing is impossible as much as he uses it... i really don't even know why i bother, but i am getting pretty good at it...
I really need to go to bed, but i slept so much yesterday, i really don't think there'll be much sleeping tonight.
anyway, that's about all...

Yep, this morning has baan pretty crappy...
On the way to work i got pulled over, i got another ticket, this time for going 12 over... when i wasn't, i was only about 9 over, but still.
I figure this one is gonna be somewhere around 230.00 or so, it'll be a little annoying, but once i got my ticket i did my best to say 230 dollars worth of mean things to the cop... he read me my rights... that's like the fourth, maybe fifth time...
also, i now seem to get headaches when i read, i t was slow around the office so i spent part of the morning reading, after about an hour i had this massive headache that took almost 2 hours to get rid of...
But on the good side.
Tomorrow after work, as usual i'll be going to shreveport for the weekend... can't really afford to do a whole lot, but it'll still be cool, getting to hang out with jessica for a few days (it always is)...
anyway, back to... not work.
