Friday... mowed half the yard during the afternoon. Talked to a guyt hat works with Dad about getting his work address book downloaded and imported here at home. Goofed off. Around 7PM, M& D sent me in to Eaton Theater to buy tickets for the 9:30PM show of Hulk. Stopped by BK to see if Keith was working but he wasn't so I went back home. Sat around for an hour until Mom and Dad got up. Then we went to Dairy Queen and got ice cream... mmm, Cherry Cheesecake Blizzard. Then we went to see Hulk, which I thought was good, on par with Spiderman. Not great mind you, but good. :P Dad wants to buy the DVD when it comes out. Mom didn't care for it though. Then I spent most of the evening/night playing old games... Where in the USA is Carmen Sandiego? The Incredible Machine 2. King's Quest 5, 6, and 7... etc. Hooray for VDMSound and other programs that make it possible to play old games on XP as they should be played.

Saturday, I think I got up around 11AM or so. Cleaned up a bit. Mom gave me a shirt she bought me earlier that morning that was really cool so I wore it. Went to my cousin Tiffany's Open House with M&D at 1:45PM. Talked to a bunch of relatives. Got my good pair of rollerblades out of myc ar while I was there, left my old ones in it. They had a 250lb pig they had BBQ'd... yum for BBQ pork. :P Left there shortly after 3PM. I did a few things here, then left at 3:45PM or so with mom's car and went over to Keith's to give him Office XP and the Guestbook program I made him to use for his open house. Messed with his computer to try to free up space for OfficeXP. Tony got there shortly after that. Then we watched a DVD Keith's cousin and friends at U of M made. Was really cool, I want access to the resources they used to make it. Some of the video effects were just awesome. :P Then I left and went to Lansing to go to Sam's Open House. Got there about 5:10PM or so. Sat barefoot in the grass and talked to Sam and her friends for about a half hour. Then drove back home and got here at 6:05PM. Then M&D and I went to Keith's for his open house.

Great time at Keith's... sat around and talked to people, drank plenty of pop, ate food, played frisbee a ton... I took my new blue imperial frisbee, and they had a yellow one there already. Hooray for decent frisbees. We also kicked around a soccer ball for hours. Eventually most people left. Mom and dad left me there. Was still Keith, Jenni, Tony, Keith's sisters Kara and Amelia, Karl, Chris, Ben, and myself there. We fought over the hammock several times. :P Dumped ice water from the cooler on people. Eventually went inside and watched the DVD again, but I got to see the end this time. :P I think Kara said it was the 4th time she'd seen it. :P Around 11PM I think, Nate came and picked up. Mom and Dad had been riding the bike around and it had stalled for some reason so Nate went to jump them, then came to get me. Got back here and Nicole, Laura, Russell and Juan were unloading Nicole's and Laura's crap from the truck and trailer from Nicole and Laura moving home from college. I played The 11th Hour for a bit, but didn't do much else after that.

Got up this morning. Dad had left for his annual 3-day golf outing. Nicole and Laura were unpacking things more. Did some random chores (took salt for the softener downstairs, moved M&D's bike so it wasn't in the way, took a box of dishes downstairs for Nicole, took the trailer out of the garage, etc. Took a really hot bath to soak my left knee which has been giving me problems increasingly. Bad knees is something that runs in my dad's side of the family. Two of my uncles, and my cousin Jess have all had surgery on their knees. I think something to do with the kneecap not staying in place. Of course, I've had a recurring sprained ankle since 6th grade too. :P But Saturday running around so much, I strained my knee, and at times I can't even walk on it. Bending it just about doubles me over half the time. Oof. Little more relaxed now though. Need to get a new bike before the summer is over or ride the stationary downstairs to build up the muscles around it again so it goes away again. After my soaking though, I put boxers on and have been enjoying the breeze since. Watched Loaded on Fuse (formerly MuchMusic USA, formerly MuchMusic :P... I miss actual MuchMusic. :| ). Watched Scrooged. Over the week I watched Planet of the Apes and Beneth the Planet of the Apes. Saw Conquest of the Planet of the Apes was on one day too but I missed it. Just been sitting her randomly since Scrooged got off. Need to rund own to my neighbors house soon to let their dog out to go potty, and lock their chicken coop for the night. Whee!

Stole this from Kira... just for fun, someone took the Top 100 movies off IMDB's Top 250 Movies and asks people to pass ont he list, and hightlight the movies you've seen. I translated a few more of the titles that they hadn't... like Spirited Away, Run Lola Run, Life is Beautiful, etc. I noticed several of the movies have changed positions since whoever started this copied the list, but eh, here's the movies I've seen.

Just went over to Wes' to see if he was still alive. He had food poisoning and allergies at once, not good at all, so he missed Keith's open house yesterday. Was talking online with Wes' sister and a few other people and she said Keith and Tony were both over there so I went over there too. :P

And that is that for now.


Just as an aside - I always did love the Incredible MAchine series. Quite fun.


Yeah, it's great. :)

If you want TIM2, I found it and grabbed it from... http://www.oldgames.org/download.php?id=156

Didn't see, or really look for TIM or TIM3 though, but I'll worry about them after I finish TIM2. :D


Try http://www.the-underdogs.org/ if you're looking for old games. They have a pretty good selection of old abandonware stuff, and if it's still being sold somewhere, they have links to where you can get it.

You ever played System Shock 2 or Master of Magic? (The former is an FPS from Irrational Games, the latter a turn-based fantasy strategy from Microprose.)


system shock 2 is awesome!


Quite. :)

I've been playing games a long time, and that still rates as one of the better games I've ever had the good fortune to play.


Actually, I was at Underdogs the other day looking at http://www.the-underdogs.org/guidedos.php when I was trying to get King's Quest and such working in XP. :D

I think I have played SS2, but I can't remember where, because I'm pretty sure I don't have it myself... I'll have to download it now. :P


Ooo, maybe I won't download it.... 260M, ouch. :P Particularly since our 56K modem has only been connecting at 21.6 for weeks now. :P


It's also still sold as a CD, and is worth the price of admission. Make sure to get the patch, when you've gotten it at last, and be forewarned that the multiplayer function is both unsupported and was kind of an afterthought - the game's meant for single player.


you HAVEN'T seen some of the best movies ever dude!


I'm working on it... slowly. :P If I had seen them, they would have all been bold. :P Welcome back to living again by the way. ;)
