This will most likely be my last blog entry for 2006. I feel that this year, overall, has been kind of a cruddy year. Of course, getting laid off was bad, but the loss of my father-in-law was, by far, the worst. I’ll be happy when this year is behind us and 2007 greets us with open arms. I really feel like 2007 will be a great year for me and Shauna. I think I’ve said that in the past, but I truly feel it this time. Anyway, enough of that…

I updated the comic book list on the site. I’ll be updating it again this weekend after I pick up the last couple weeks worth of books.

I got three new video games for Christmas: Big Brain Academy (DS), Age of Empires: The Age of Kings (DS), and Destroy All Humans! (Xbox). I’ve added the two DS games to the Digital Archive along with a DS game I bought several months ago, Zoo Tycoon DS. Destroy All Humans! Isn’t up there yet, as I’ve not had a chance to re-work the Xbox games. I’ve been hard at work re-building the PC games area, and that should be up and running in the next week or so.

I’ve also added a new entry to the Artwork section, which is the Suncoast Studios business cards I’ve recently designed. The entry details the process of all the variations I went through to get the cards looking like I wanted them to.

For those of you who’ve been watching my Xfire banner at the bottom of my homepage, you’ve noticed that I’ve been playing an enormous amount of Star Wars Galaxies lately. In about 40 hours time, I got Zev from level 17 to level 35, and joined the Entertainer’s Alliance, which is a guild in the game. Last night I attended my first guild meeting and was the only one besides the guild officers that showed up! So, I was promoted to Secretary of the guild and am now responsible for taking the meeting minutes and communicating them to the guild members who can’t (or won’t) show up for the meetings. I also started to be come a Rebel pilot.

Christmas was great. Even though my mom had to work that day, me, Shauna, Amy, Glen and my grandma got together and had a beef roast done in the crock-pot with carrots and onions, mashed potatoes, and rutabagers. Amy and Glenn brought over Jell-O shots with 151 in them and a pumpkin pie with chocolate crackle poured on top. Grandma brought a really awesome Jell-O desert with cherry pie filling in it. We ate, opened presents, and had fun. When grandma left in the early evening, I went and picked my mom up from work and she came over and we all ate more, played some poker and watched Ralphie on T.V. We also munched off a relish tray and summer sausage/cheese tray.

Sick Thought of the Day: Slowly pull the tampon out of the butt – But not too fast, or it’ll break off and cause an infection.
