This past saturday, I played paintball with a bunch of guys from work. I had forgotten how much fun that sport is! Earlier this year I had bought a paintball gun (marker) from a buddy of mine and I finally got to use it. The last time I played I had to rent a gun. Which turned out to be a single shot, pump action type. This time, I was fully armed with a semi-auto, paintball spraying machine. haha In the course of 4 hours of play, I shot over a 1000 rounds (1 case)! But having the semi-auto gun definatly increased my number of tags. Be sure to check the pictures on my site of the paintball battle!

It's finally friday! Although Im here at work and its just past 7am, at least its the end of the week. Not a whole lot of excitement as of late. Thanksgiving at the Thorpe house went smooth. I ate all I could. Then, like the Grinch who stole Thanksgiving, I snuck away with most of the families leftovers from the big meal. Ah yes, I was eating good for the next few days.
Its actually starting to get cold here in Texas. Lately our nights have been getting down to the uppper 20's (F), and the days have barely been topping off at 50. I laugh because when i was living in the Chicagoland area, those temperatures would have been reason to put on the swim shorts and hit the beach! Instead, my friends up north are just hoping each daytime high will get UP TO 20 degrees. My friend Dan in California emailed me the other day to taunt me with the 70 degree temps they are getting. (note to self, be sure to laugh at dan after next large cali earthquake.) See, life all balances out. hehe
