Another Year

Well, another year has passed, and I am now 26 (as of November 9th). That's kind of weird when I think about it. 4 years till 30! Not that 30 is old...because it's not. Anyway, I had a great weekend. My girlfriend, Jamey, and I took the day off Friday. We went to the St. Louis Zoo that afternoon, and then we stopped by my mom and dad's house for dinner. Mom made a special dinner (by my request)...her chicken-pot pie, sautéed green beans, mashed potatoes, and her yellow cake that I like so much. She did all that in addition to working a full day. I love my mom. :) Saturday, Jamey and I took a trip to the St. Louis Science Center to see the Body Worlds 3 exhibit. It was so good...very enlightening. It will be there till March of 2008 (I think), so go get tickets. Later that night, Jamey treated me to dinner at Travenas. If you're hungry, and in the area, I highly recommend it. We've now eaten there twice...and been thoroughly impressed each time. The atmosphere is nice-casual, but the food is outstanding. May I suggest the Aegean Salmon, New York Strip Steak, or the Fettucine con Pollo?

7th Annual Thanskgiving LAN (Nerd Fest)

So, pwnage anyone? Need I say more? Yes. It is that time of the year again, and we're approaching the annual Thanksgiving fact, this will be our 7th annual get-together. Hosted ever so graciously by Andrew and Katie Reiter, deep in the heart of Herculaneum, Missouri, it's sure to be another hit. This year we will be playing Team Fortress 2 and Quake Wars: Enemy Territory. I've been playing TF2 for a couple weeks now, and it is a total blast. I can't wait to melt some faces. QW:ET is a different story. I'm sure it's fun, but I haven't had much exposure to it simply because I can't seem to put TF2 down. I'm bound to get severely owned if I don't put some time into it. For those of you out of the loop, this party is always the weekend before Thanksgiving, where bunch of us old friends from college get together for a very unhealthy dose of computer gaming. As nerdy as it sounds (trust me, it's a nerd fest), the best part is not the gaming. It's the camaraderie. Ok, I'm done geeking-out for now.
