Competition Sunday

Today is pretty much a day of some type of competition. Ive done a bit more of that editing thing on Premiere. But the majority has been watching NFL games, killing people in various types of mutiplayer online games and getting ready for my soccer game tonight. Which the league has so nicely put at 10:30pm. These late games are never all that fun. Especially when they put us on the Sunday match. This is my teams last game going into the championship match. We have a 7-0 record and are playing the 3rd place team tonight. Id like for us to beat them and go into the final undefeated. If we lose, i wont feel good about facing a tough second place team in the championship game next week. CRAP!! Im watching the NFL game highlights. The Bills just scored an overtime touchdown to beat my Bears. That is.... upsetting.
Why is it the Ken Burn Civil War series is so hypnotic to watch? Bummed that my team lost, I changed channel and stoped on this historical series. Now, I cant touch the remote!
WOOO WHOOOO! Just got in from my late night soccer game. The other team didnt have enough players to start. We won by default. As ugly as that is, it gives us a perfect 8-0 regular season record. In just over a week we face our the second place team in the finals. Even though the league champion only wins a T-shirt saying "Champion", i'll take it! I can always use a new T-shirt.

Saturday Night not-Live

Today wasnt the most action packed day of my life. It started out with so much potential, then took a real potential killing turn. Nine A.M. im up and being a productive member of society. Cleaning my apartment, working on projects ive put off... then i figure i'll take a break and watch some TV. That was the mistake. I lay down on the couch with my drink. Next thing I know, Im waking up and its 3pm!! Being that I had told my parents I would stop by their place at 1pm, I went into turbo mode to get caught up. I was there by 4. Did a late bday celebration, at some good food and relaxed a bit. Now its just me on this not so live saturday night. On the upbeat side, i went out and bought a book on Adobe Premiere. Ive been wanting to learn that program. So ive spent the evening going thru the tutorials and editing some video. Pretty coolio. Yes, i lead the life of a Hollywood high roller i tell ya!

The 7 Habits from Hell

Here I am, on lunch from my 3 day torture session AKA 7 habits. This thing is wearing me out. uugg Today's assignment was for us all to write a mission statement about our lives. Umm.. yeah, let me whip that up in 15 minutes. It was at that moment I almost considered writing out the motivational words of Tyler Durden. I figured, hey if he motivated those guys to create an underground fist fighting cult, it should easily sound just as good as my uplifting life's mission statement. Maybe i could talk the class into shaving our heads and carrying out covert operations between the hours of 8am and 5pm? Naa, they wouldnt go for it. I'll just be happy with my free coke and granola bar.

Learning to blog!

Well through some trial and error im figuring out more and more about the world of blogging. Has anyone ever played the video game Medal of Honor? This has to be one of the most addicting online multiplayer games EVER. If you are into that stuff and havent tried it yet. Do so! You wont regret it! Wow, that sounded nerdy.
Today Im at work and they've sent a bunch of us to a class called 7 habbits of highly effective people. What a whipping. This class uses corperate motivational terms like "synergy" and "think win-win". uugg And to make it worse, this class lasts for 3 days. Im not sure if i can last that long. Well my break is almost up. I havent been brainwashed yet, but im starting to feel "proactive". Id better go.
Well I couldnt sleep so I thought, hey I'll start a blog! Now... my evil thoughts and plans to rule the world can be documented step by step for all the public to see!!! hahahahahahahahah (Evil laugh) Oh... wait. On a not so sinister note, ive found out im worth $1,852,144.00. This is according to my "site of the week" link to I wonder what could increase my value? Perhaps an extra toe or maybe flip-top head. Always nice for getting to those hard to reach mollars! ha!
