Okay, okay...

It's been brought to my attention by several people now that I haven't updated in a while, so let's see what I can remember since July 17th...

I guess my finger is mostly healed from it's crushing.  My new fingernail has a dent in it though from where it regrew.  Wes continued to bring us a lot of food fromt he college throughout the summer, until he started running a coffee station instead.  Played quite a bit of Halo 2 throughout the summer.  Firemen's Festival and Ben's birthday were both July 30th.  Towards the end of July Nate and I also moved from Baker over here to the lake.  Nate went to British Columbia for two weeks soon after.

I've been going over to my grandparents quite a bit this summer doing chores for them and helping out.  Still in need of a job.  Recently applied for jobs at LCC, MSUFCU, and another but no reaponses.  But I've been working on various computers for people.  Last weekend my Aunt Pam and Uncle Shawn's went back tot hem.  This week I worked on Wayne's.  This weekend I worked on my cousin Meagan's.

Bought some DVD's recently... The Day the Earth Stood Still, Identity, 28 Days Later, etc.  Watched the TV series Firefly finally since Serenity was coming out.  It's too bad it was cancelled, I love the series.  And I wonder how I missed it when it was actually on the air originally.  Been watching a lot of anime.  And playing a lot of WoW.  :P

I've also taken quite a few pictures this summer.  Most of the good ones I uploaded to DeviantArt two weeks ago or so after I attended a Lansing DA meet.  Met Jacob from Jackson that I knew online already, and some other cool people.  We met at the MSU Union and spent the late afternoon/early evening wandering around the botanical gardens and Grand River.  Ended up stopping at a bar so some of the people could get something to eat and drink.  Ended up reading Trivial Pursuit cards for a while.  :P  Was fun stuff.  For all the pics though (I really do recommend the ones on my DA though)... just browse through August and September in here.

Wes and I also went tot he Highland Fling weekend of the Michigan Ren Fest.  Spent all Saturday afternoon wandering around.  Bought a lot of Honey Sticks.  :D  But I didn't take any pictures I guess.  More recently, tookt hge swimming platform out of the lake that last warm day last week.  Pontoon is still in the water for now though.  Mom put up Halloween decorations last night and the night before.  I hung lights on the porch.

Let's see, some other random things... bought a cool new odometer/tachometer for my bike.  $30 or so at Tony's uncle's bike store.  The other night Wes and I found an asian store near the mall that carries cool foods.  I bought pearl tapioca to make bubble tea, and a bunch of pocky... boxes of pocky only 75 cents!  Instead of like $3-4 at Suncoast and other places.  :P  No Kasugai gummies though.  :|  I bought a DVD burner a while back as well... Toshiba DVD+-R/RW DL... is sweet.  Been going to Meijer a lot... Kayle (sp?  I never remember... Khale maybe...) works there now, so we go bug him.  August 20th I went up to Grand Rapids for my friend Matt's wedding.  Was a beautiful ceremony at the Chapel on GVSU's campus, and a cool reception in a coference room at Celebration Cinema.  Instead of regular cake for everyone, they had individual cheesecakes at each table.  :D  I spent a lot of time talking to Eva and her husband, Eva was Sarah's (the bride) German teacher in high school.  I took off around 9:30 I think... because it was also Mom's 50th birthday.  Poor mom.  :D  Nate's birthday was a week ago or so.  I got him Fight Club on DVD, two 2-liters of MD, a bag of mini reese's cups, two things of snack pack snickers, etc.  He asked for it.  :P

Mom and Dad came home with a motorhome one night.  I think it's a 28 foot Class A... then a week or so later, they left for 10 days to visit friends in Maine.  So they were gone for a while, and also have gone on weekend trips with it.  Nicole has a job with CISD working with autistic kids in a classroom.  I've been to her school twice I think... helped take stuff there before the school year started, and also one day when she locked herself out of her car while Mom and Dad were gone on their week trip.

There's probably more, but I'm starting to draw a blank, so I'll just add it later if it's important.
