      I am, in fact, alive. More or less.

      Okay, so it's been over a month since my last journal entry. I'm an incredibly boring person to be watching these days, huh. So I guess I should probably give a couple of updates in this thing, shouldn't I?

      The reason I haven't been around much is that I've been either working or watching little Gwen. Or sleeping. I guess more working than anything else. I've been putting in much overtime lately, but all that could be about to change. Just got a memo the other day to cut overtime, so I may actually get a little rest. Of course we get one of those a couple times a month, so let's see how long this one lasts.

      I'm sure most of you also watch my wife, Moonracer, so I don't really need to say much about Gwen. She's still little, still cute and still a lazy slacker... just like her daddy. smiley0.gif

      On the hobby side of things, I have taken on a new hobby. With a little help from my boss, TCG_Chris, I have begun purchasing components for a new, far superior, computer. At the moment I only have the DVD drive, power supply, graphics card and harddrive, but it's a start. If I continue buying a week every week or so I should have everything in a month or two. Then the hard part begins.

      Okay, one final thing. As you may or may not lknow, I am a HUGE fan of "Weird Al" Yankovic. As such I have become a 'close personal friend of AL', which is to say I signed up for updates on his website. Al (yes, we're on a first name basis) is currently working on a new album, which seems to be taking longer than expected. Normally this would be a bad thing, but not this time. As sort of an appology to his fans for the delay, Al has posted a brand new song. A song that will not be included on the album. This means there is only one way to, legally, get this song. How is that, you ask? It's dead simple, just scoot on over to his website and download it. Don't know Al's website? Well, I'm here to help.

      Just head on over here, the song is located right on the front page.

      Not sure if you want to, well keep in mind that it's free and you don't even need to sign up for anything. Go ahead, you know you want to.

      Well, ladies and gentlemen, that's all I've got to say at the moment. I'll attempt to update the here journal thingy more often.... maybe.

    • Less is more

      Or at least I hope that's the case, as there'll be less and less of me in the weeks to come.

      The reason for this is simple, I have recieved a "bonus" at work. This "bonus", know as summer waiver, means that from now until memorial day I will be, basically, full time. That means up to 48 hours a week at a much higher pay scale. I have yet to decide if I want to go with 6 days a week or try for 4 10 hour shifts and an 8 hour. Plus I also get time and a half on Sundays, so I'll be working all of them. I could hardly pass this offer up. So if anyone wonders what happened to ol' Dain, that's the answer.

    • Quick journal about nothing.

      Dainbramaged

      I haven't posted a journal in awhile and figured now was as good a time as any. The problem is I have nothing to talk about, so I decided to post another Stephen Lynch song.

      This is just a quick little tune inspired by a conversation I was having with a co-worker last night.

      Enjoy. And no, I will not tell you what the conversation was about.

    • Quick update, for those who care.

      13 years ago

      Dainbramaged

      Sorry folks, haven't been around much these days. Been far too busy working and taking care of the little one... and playing X-Box. Not 360, just X-Box. I've fallen back in love with Burnout 3. There seems to be no better stress relief than crashing headlong into traffic and scoring points for it. Or running your opponent off the road just for the hell of it.

      So what's going on? Well the Gwen continues to grow, which is good. Moonie continues to get little sleep while I'm at work, which is bad. And I've been working so damn hard I can no longer feel anything but pain, which sucks. But you'll get no complaints from me. Moon and Gwen are healthy, the rent is paid and there's food on the table. Everything is going to plan.

      Have to make this quick, Gwen could wake up any time. I try to sneak in here every once in a while and make comments. With little time and lots of mods, maybe I should start being a little less consevative with them. Until next time...

      Later

    • Woe is me....

      13 years ago

      Dainbramaged

      I am friggin' beat. I am so tired of working overtime. Don't get me wrong, I need the money, but I would also like to have some time with my wife and newborn daughter. Oh well, I have the night off, and once Easter is over and done with the store will calm down and I can relax a bit..... Until the next holiday.

      Enough of that. How is everyone? Things seem to be pretty quiet around here lately. Is it because the weather has gotten nicer and people are getting out more? Or are everyone's lives so dull they have nothing to say? Or maybe that's just the way I see things, who knows.

      Later.

    • The pictures are up.

      My lovely wife Moonracer has (finally) posted some pictures of our baby girl, Gwen.

      I know there are some people out there who has been waiting for this, including one person that I know for a fact has been rather vocal about it. So waste no time, head right on over to Moon's journal and check them out. I have also been assured that there will be more to come.

      Here's one teaser picture.

    • SHE"S HERE!

      That's right everyone, the big day has finally arrived. My daughter has decided to join us all in the outside world.

      She was born on April 8th, 2006 at 8:26pm. For those keeping track, that makes 02sonny the winner of the baby pool. I'm afraid I'll have to leave all the other details and pictures for Moonracer to post in her journal when she's released from the hospital tomorrow morning.

      If anyone is wondering about an official screen name, while Heather had some decent suggestions, I have decided on Star_Racer. Her mother may have the moon, but her father has given her the stars.

      Edit: Heather brings up a good point. In this case, which may be a first, the doctors accurately predicted the delivery date. I'm not sure if this is because of science or luck, but even the weather man is right once in awhile.

    • Still no winner...

      In the baby pool. Tomorrow is the estimated due date and still no baby. It's looking better and better for those who chose a later due date. For those who had the first week of April... not so good. Here's how the calender looks as things stand now.

      Still alot of people in this thing. Moonracer goes in for another doctors apointment today, possible more news later.

    • It's done.

      I have finish my torture gift for JJMcFly. I'd tell you all what it is, but I want him to see it first. I'm sure he'll be kind enough to post it for everyone to see. smiley0.gif

    • Just a little plug

      13 years ago

      Dainbramaged

      Okay, I was so impressed by the service I recieved from an online order, I just had to give them a plug.

      I recently purchased 3 strategy guides online. I decided that I would go through www.bradygames.com since I had used them before and they did great. First off let me just say, I used a little trick I had learned last time to get a decent discount on all the guides I ordered. (40% to be exact) Not to mention I used the free shipping option.

      Here's the part that impressed me, I placed the order yesterday morning. It shipped yesterday night and is scheduled for delivery tomorrow. Three days from order to delivery using the free shipping option and a trick the got me 40% off. Now that's service. If anyone is in the market for video game strategy guides I highly reccomend checking them out. And if you wanna know the trick for 40% off, just ask.

      P.S. I wanna make it known that I do NOT use stragety guides until I have beaten a game once, and then only to get the things I missed the first time around.

      Hell yeah, Ovaltine is da greatest. But it has to be the chocolate malt, the plain chocolate is kinda boring.

      Ovaltine is the shit. I made biscotti with it once.

      Me a lawyer? Now your the jester. I despise that profession. Too many are representing crooks, when they should be putting them away.

      I try my best to keep everyone entertained at work, but I"m amateaur at best..... I"m a computer slave in real life ;-)

      I visit too often, I think. I have spent far too much money on video games lately.

    • gameboi

      Cheapassgamer.com is nice. I don't seem to visit that place enough, for some reason.

      Oh, come on... Imagine a blue mozzerella on a pizza. Or a pink cheddar in a mac and cheese. The possibilities are endless.

    • jaly223

      I asked that before, and I guess there isn't a big market for colored cheese.

      thanks man... I appreciate that.

    • joequincy

      13 years ago

      I will agree that immaturity was involved... but do you really know what "she means a lot to me" means? Age doesn't necessarily bring experience, and I would appreciate it if you refrained from talking down to me. Although I may not be an official adult, I have seen quite a bit more of the world than the average 17 year old; I am not a child.

      But what is a relationship? It is two people who are willing to open up to each other. It involves taking a risk, which is not synonymous with immaturity. Being able to take that risk is actually a very strong sign of maturity.

      Also, anger is a secondary emotion. It is caused by sadness, and by pain. It is a perfectly natural and mature reaction to seek an outlet for anger (not to mention healthy). Note that no names were given, and therefore it was not a direct attack on any of the parties involved. In all: mature.

      And although I know you may be feeling frustration if you have read this far, I will ask you to kindly not mod me negatively. I am not attacking you. I am merely wishing to explain a point of view.
