Holy Crap

deep snowThis snow storm is ridiculous. The blizzard of 2003 is upon us, and it's still snowing pretty hard. Jenny and I opened the door to my apartment to find a wall of snow. Luckily I keep a snow shovel inside. We succeeded in clearing the egress and got to have some play time in the 6 foot drifts.

Now it's time for some hot chocolate and TV. I just can't watch the news anymore. The anchorman, Mr. Obvious, and his idiot on the scene Mr. Duh are killing me with lines like, "many businesses and schools are closed today" and "on and off ramps are worse than the highways". Please... I don't mind information about snowfall totals, but why give me information that I can ascertain by looking out the window?

super toccHappy Valentine's Day, everyone.

So Jenny introduced me to a fun site called Superdudes.net. All you need is a digital photo of yourself and you can make a superhero. They have everything from sports themes to comics. If I were you, I'd put in a fake email address when you complete the free registration, or you might get some spam in your inbox.

What else? Let's see... If you're interested in online gaming, stop by games.yahoo.com and check out Literati. It's online scrabble. Play with a friend or a stranger.

The weather outside is frightful

It's snowing outside... again... Hey, at least it's pretty.

dragon puppetYesterday Jen and I picked up Dave and Meredith and headed to China Town for the Chinese New Year celebration. We met up with Nick and Su down by Canal St. Su is a kung fu instructor and one of the organizers of the event. She did a kung fu demo and played the drums as the lions and dragons danced in the streets and through the stores. The little orange lion to the right was a souvenir we picked up. We had fun, but it was SO COLD. Pictures are in the photo gallery.

amusements

Fun games:

  • Play Letters! - Shoot 'em up! (with your keyboard)
  • Acno's Energizer is a pretty cool game that reminds me of boxworld. Use the arrow keys to move the balls into the energizer.

Funny videos:

Here are some clips of a few (relatively) new songs that have made my mp3 playlist:

The song clips come from mymusic.com, a great site to buy CDs.

$240 worth of pudding

I can't believe I'm awake. I haven't been up this early in a long time.

Episodes of "The State" are now online! My favorite skit is "$240 worth of pudding". Other memorable skits are "Doug & Dad", "The Popes-a Visit", "Hormones", and "Louie & The Last Supper". Unfortunately the volume levels are all over the place for the skits, but they're still well worth watching.
