eBay phishing scam

January 24, 2005 at 10:19 PM

I just received my first half-decent phishing attempt in an email. I've received several of them from PayPal before but never actually believed any of those for a minute. I don't know why, maybe I just wasn't paying very close attention, but I actually fell for this one at first and had to read it closely before I realized it was a fake. If I had actually read the thing, I would've known right away... Continue reading

Grande sucks

January 18, 2005 at 01:28 PM

I'm not sure if I've mentioned it before, but Grande Communications sucks. We've had one difficulty after another with them since moving up here to Dallas in June. We wanted to get Dish Network or DirecTV, but because our balcony doesn't face the right direction we couldn't get either of those. Then we called Comcast in hopes that somehow we could use them instead, but as expected we were told that Grande was our only... Continue reading

New Year's Resolutions

January 03, 2005 at 07:03 PM

Rather than making a single post with all of my New Year's Resolutions that I'll forget about in two months, I've decided to set some goals for myself and actually focus on attaining them. They might be short term or long term, easy or hard, serious or silly, but they're all legitimate goals that I have. I've added a brand new Goals category to the Doing section of my site to keep track of everything.... Continue reading

I'm sick and bored

December 28, 2004 at 10:58 AM

I've got a nasty cold. I just feel like crap all over, I've been nauseous for much of the last two days. Plus I think the Tylenol Cold is just making me feel worse. And to add to all of that, it looks like the entire web is on vacation. All my daily reads are dormant, I've never seen the web design community so quiet. Plus the updates at Engadget, Gizmodo, and Orangebloods have all... Continue reading

Christmas 2004

December 24, 2004 at 10:19 PM

Reesey was a good puppy all weekend long. She played non-stop and slept the rest of the time, pretty much staying out of trouble. Her grandma even gave her tons of presents. She's got enough treats to survive a nuclear war. Pictures of Christina and me having our Christmas, my family opening presents after church on Christmas Eve, and of course little Reesey causing trouble. Check out the photoset or view the slideshow on... Continue reading

It's snowing!!!

December 22, 2004 at 03:17 PM

It's snowing like crazy here right now. It snowed pretty hard briefly this morning, but now it's been really coming down for about an hour. There's at least an inch of snow on the roofs around here. Check out some camera phone shots here and photos from around the apartment here and here.... Continue reading

School holidays kick ass!

December 20, 2004 at 08:45 AM

My five mile drive to work this morning took only 10 minutes, or approximately 15 minutes less than normal. Apparently about 75% of the 234,000 people that live in Plano are stay-at-home moms, because there was absolutely no one on the road this morning. Add that to the fact that none of the three school zones I have to deal with on a daily basis were active. It was smooth sailing. I love school... Continue reading

I love Christmas bonuses

December 16, 2004 at 03:41 PM

Woohooo! We got our Christmas bonuses at work today during our luncheon. Score! I wasn't expecting much, last year they had a big party but then got crappy gift cards. This year, a simple lunch in the office and got a nice chunk of cash. Bonuses rock! I have this urge to spend it on something stupid and frivolous, but then again I already own all the frivolous crap I wanted. I guess I... Continue reading

Reesey is sick

November 29, 2004 at 11:23 PM

We had to take Reesey to the emergency clinic tonight. She's been a little sick (but still peppy) since we got back into town and when we took her in she was dehydrated and something wrong with the concentration of her blood. Both are temporary things that should be cleared up soon. Not overly serious, but she did need to stay overnight and get hooked up to an IV to fix both her blood issue... Continue reading

Reesey misses me

November 27, 2004 at 10:24 PM

Christina took this perfect shot of Reesey staring out the window wondering where I went. She just stood there on her tiptoes waiting for me to come back home. Christina said she was there for at least five whole minutes. I think this may be my favorite photo of Reesey ever. There's some really great ones of her running around or with her big toungue hanging out, but this one really captures her personality.... Continue reading

Shit that bothers me: Weight lifting gloves

November 27, 2004 at 08:28 PM

Okay, so I understand that some of those big `ol dudes that lift all day every day need them. They're lifting a ton of weight and doing it every damn day. But what really gets to me is the fact that I was at the gym the other day and every last jackass had them on, literally. And there was at max two guys who were doing enough weight to justify not being kicked in... Continue reading

Headed home...

October 22, 2004 at 11:54 AM

Wow, it's been a long time since I've been home to New Braunfels. In fact, I haven't been since we moved up here to Dallas in early June. Over four months, definitely the longest I've ever been gone. I can't stand spending my precious weekends driving, I'd much rather sit on my ass and watch 48 hours of football. Now it's not like I'm neglecting my family or have run away never to return again,... Continue reading
