Man, plenty good stuff since my last post. Went to Houston last weekend, Star Pizza is still really good, got my first look at Brooks and I still don’t believe it (OK maybe I do), went to Alfred’s crawfish boil, rocked The Pope room at Buca di Beppo for Zack and Dad’s birthday bash, then drove back to Austin for Ashley’s costume birthday party.

Last night, got a change to play some 42. Why is that game good for the soul? I did not play well and fucked up when my partner splashed. In my defense, I have not played too much 42 when splash is bid.

The other news, looks like foursquare is the new dodgeball.

Getting settled

Posted by geeseven | misc | Tuesday 10 March 2009 10:47 pm

So I have been in Austin for about a month now and things are getting settled. I am all but out of moving boxes and the fish tank is up and running with fish! Had some major head aches with AT&T’s U-verse service, never ever EVER EVER get U-verse. Customer “support” is atrocious. You will never get the same response to a question twice and they will break every promise they make. I still have not a promised call about my first credit more or less the second credit, both times they were the ones that brought it up in the first place! *eye roll*

I have seemed to pick up the “lay of the land” quicker than I did with San Antonio, it also helps having a GPS even if the maps are acouple years old. I have not made it our to any shows yet, but have hit a few good restaurants and hand full of bars. Looks like Nomad Bar will be the work happy hour joint. I think I am going to like it here.

FYI, heading to Houston this weekend!

Off to Austin

Posted by geeseven | misc | Monday 9 February 2009 11:22 pm

So the movers are coming tomorrow and all most all of my stuff is packed. My mood is surprisingly subdued.

Much like Ramble On with the San Antonio move, I seem to be drawn to Ball And Chain over the past few days.

Take away this ball and chain.

Austin update

Posted by geeseven | misc | Monday 2 February 2009 11:42 am

I am still getting all the details worked out, but it looks like I will be in Austin by the 16th! Due to some issues with my current apartment complex, it will be easier to transfer to one of their Austin locations. This is not ideal, but will be good enough to get my foot in the door.

While I am excited, it is smothered with worry about all the details. The more details that get shorted out the more excited I get.

Austin bound

In the not too distanced future I will be moving to Austin. Alot of the details are still up in the air, but its time for me to pack up my stuff!

tilt shift photography

Posted by geeseven | misc | Sunday 11 January 2009 5:40 pm

While I am no shutterbug, I have been getting into the cool stuff that can be done with tilt shift photography. Stuff like this and this and this and even cooler video stuff.

Since I don’t have a fancy camera I got playing with and made the following:




Long time, no nothing

Posted by geeseven | moblog | Wednesday 31 December 2008 1:48 am

So its time to fire up the magic internet machine and get this blog thing going again. I have to admit that my interest in documenting events in my life has diminished since moving to San Antonio. So let me hit this site with same defibrillator that Groening used to bring Futurama back to life (kinda) much like my attempts to update this site with some kind of regularity.

2008 has been [insert witty adjective] kind of year. Its seem to fly by and take forever all at the same time. It started with the departure of three co-workers that I hold high opinions of, both professionally and personally. But I did get a chance to sneak away for some skiing in Santa Fe. Then time seemed to drag till the summer with the excitement from getting a promotion, seeing a company go public, the Olympics only to get derailed along with the economy and the 2008 Presidential election.

Other highlights included Makers Faire (I only took a few pictures) , buying and using new camping gear, eating Indian food regularly, new site, hardware failures, Wii bowling making me want to bowl for real, discovery of Explosions in the Sky and upping my sys-admin skills and over all nerd cred.

Thats all for now. more later?

day = bad, shell = bad, rackers = GREAT

Posted by geeseven | misc | Saturday 3 November 2007 9:43 am

Today I really felt that the 2nd shift Rackers showed their true colors. I was not having a good day, as I could not asleep last night (last time I looked at the clock it was 8:30 AM) so I was tired and cranky. One of finer monitoring techs, let me know that one of my tires was running low. So I go out to check and low and behold, I got a staple in one of my tires. I got the jack out and got the lug nuts removed, but the rim was stuck on and would not budge. After some banging and pulling, I decided to walk to the Shell Station to get some WD40.

I was happy to find that the Shell did have WD40, but the cashier insisted I paid with a $10 when infact I handed him a $20. He told me there was nothing he could do and that I could talk with the manager tomorrow, all the while making me out to be a thief. A very UNfanatical experience to say the least and I left ANGRY and insulted.

I get back and WD40′d the crap out of the stuck wheel and let it sit for awhile. After while there is a handful of rackers from different departments helping me get the tire off. After a fair amount of “dude sweat” we got the tire free and the spare installed.

8 Rackers from four different departments came to my aid, making sure that I was “squared away”. As angry as I am with that Shell station, I feel fortunate to work with Rackers that take care of their own. Big thanks to all the Rackers that helped me in my time of need.

so yesterday me and Hart went to the Ranch for the day. It was perectly timed as work is getting crazy and I was having a rough day on Saturday. It was a typical ranch trip, shooting, 4-wheelin’, beers and the weather was awesome.

The picutre is a elk rack that was shead by the bull elk. Not its sitting on a king size bed.


Its a real meal
