Random sight of the day

So, I was sitting on my couch watching Wall*E's bonus features when I looked over and saw this sight. It's my new Arc mouse's shadow cause by the bright blue LED on my computer speakers.

Happy Thanksgiving All!

Take time today to think of all that you are thankful for...I know I have!

Oh, and turkey day bonus...I was all dressed up with quarters in hand to go buy today's Washington Post, when I opened my door this morning and saw a paper right in front of my door! Now that's customer service (take note, I'm only a Sunday subscriber).

Mumbai, India


Times like these makes me want to be back in the uniform...and somehow helping out all those innocent and helpless people.

007 Rocks (of course)!

So yeah, I won't spoil too much; but "Quantum of Solace" was great. I will admit it is interesting to have a Bond flick that actually continues the storyline of the previous film (minus the old S.P.E.C.T.R.E. continuity of some of the older films).

On a side note, they had a trailer for the new "Star Trek" movie by JJ Abrams. Actually looks good...and I may actually see it. Haven't seen anything Trek-related since I left home (Dad's kind of a, not so much).

Hey Steve Jobs...

I bought your movie today...not on iTunes...and not on DVD. On that format you seem to think is dead, Blu-Ray. Oh, and guess waht, for 5 bucks more I got a digital copy. There's no way I'll be buying movies via downloading until I have a MUCH faster internet connection. Oh, and I find it funny that the Pixar Blu-Rays are some of the most highly-rated discs out there. LOL

That's the number of ticket requests that Senator Webb's office has fielded so far. Wow.

C'mon c'mon!

Just put myself on Senator Webb's waiting list for inaugural tickets.

*crosses fingers*

Wow...I am the suck

So, here's something for you. I'm 30 years old, been around the world, and survived a tour of duty in Iraq...and I was so nervous to call the girl back from Friday night. Well, I finally got over myself and gave her a call just now...but got the voice mail. Which is like a blessing and a curse, well, more like a curse. My life acting like a TV show continues yet again, with me leaving a slightly stumbling around message. Gah! I'm stoked I called though; and would be even more so if she calls me back. Oh, and I almost pussed out by just sending her a text message...

Then there's this other girl I kind of like my question is where are they coming from all of the sudden?

What a weekend

So, now that Bobby is officially single again, it's been a bit harder to stay in on the weekends. Although after the great week I (and the country) had last week, I was down for a bit of celebrating this weekend. Needless to say I went out both nights...and I have been tired ever since. I plan on recouping some sleep tonight/tomorrow. That being said, I won't get in to too much detail about what transpired...although shy Mikey has reared it's ugly head, and as I type this out I'm currently too nervous to call this girl I met on Friday night! I mean, heck, I'm 30 years old...this should not even be an issue.

So tomorrow is Veteran's Day...and I have it off. I actually only have on thing planned and that is to head over to Air Force Memorial just up the hill from me and take some time to reflect.

Finally, "Quantum of Solace" comes out this weekend! Already have a group all set to go on Saturday night...I'll be sure to post up here with my full opinions.

Street View!

After spying my GTI sitting in front of my old apartment in Yorktown a few months ago, I yearned for Google to update their maps with Street View around Northern VA/D.C.  Well, it's up now...sweet.

End of the night...and I can't sleep...

...because I'm so excited! I actually went up to my roof after Barack's acceptance speech to let out a yell or two and just let it all in (being so close to D.C. and all) . I'm not even going to touch the cell phone picture to keep the rawness of it.

That being said, for all those who don't think so, I love and respect John McCain. In fact, he was a favorite of mine way back in 2000 for the GOP nomination. He has done great things for our country and it's a shame his party turned him into something he wasn't not too long ago (and his not-so-great running mate). I think we all saw the real John during his concession speech. He's more of a man than I can ever aspire to be! Here's to him continuing to serve our great country.

Now, as for Barack, I just hope everyone takes his speech to heart. Because even if you didn't vote for him, we all need to come together as a country. We have made history tonight America, and we need to chart a new course to get us out of the messes we are in.

I love my country!

PS. Peep my "I voted in Arlington" sticker in the picture above. :D

PS PS. Congrats again to Sen. Mark Warner as well! Wish I kept that invite to his HQ/party...but alas, mikey wanted a date and couldn't find one (at least locally). Haha

Still holding out hope that NoVA with pull through and swing my beloved state to Obama.

Election Night 08 #1

Damn blind voters.

Something besides the election & halloween.

Just finished reading this touching's a long read, but well worth the time:

On a side note, I was saddened to see Barack's grandmother won't live to see her grandson become the president of our great country. Stay strong Obama family! :(

Halloween 2008

You know the strangest thing? I can't even remember the last time I dressed up for Halloween. I think I may have been in costume 7 years ago in Korea; if not, it's been since I was a young child. Anyways, this costume required me to drive deep into Maryland and also let my hair grow out. Speaking of that hair, I'm currently wrestling with the idea of letting it grow out even more. Heck, at this point this is the longest it's been since that time between high school and the Air Force.

Halloween 2008

Click above for all the pictures (I should be adding more soon as my friends post others). I'm dressed as Dr. John (J.D.) Dorian from one of my favorite TV shows, "Scrubs". Anyways, it was a great night, and I saw a lot of awesome costumes. I think this may be a new thing for was great getting the costume together and keeping it secret from my friends until they saw me last night. :D
