Ok where to begin... it started off like any other day... about 8am I started feeling ill... then really ill... I had a fever that was obvious amongst other symptoms... I decided to bail and go home... on the way home I'm feeling a bit urpy so I pull over and hurl in the grass... nice... now I got that "stink" all in my mouth and nose... hey there is a Whataburger I'll whip in and get something to drink... I feel a little better maybe the DC will do me good... shit the line at the drive in is tooooo long I'll just hop out and get it... OK I'm in the store for maybe 3 minutes 5 tops! One person in line ahead of me ... I order and get my drink and then ... someone comes in through the door and says "someone is stealing a black Dodge truck!" OH SHIT! I run outside and there is my truck both doors wide ass open alarm wailing away... right away I can see pieces sticking out of the dash... they popped the door lock(s) then crow barred the dash appart and started trying to jack the stereo... face plate to stereo is gone and so is my new shoulder bag for work... crap! my PDA poof... plus some other unreplaceable items... crapola... it could have been worse. I could have been in it and shot dead!
Anyway on to the insurance and so on still sick 102 fever when I get home finally just don't care sleep... next day still sick but feeling better fever is down to 100 and with Tylenol I break it down to 98! ok let's F with this car insurance thing... turns out State Farm is using some company called CCS so handle the car stereo business, well apparently they are tight as hell... they want to ship me a radio and have me install it!Furthermore they don't make my badd ass Alpine anymore so they want to give me the equivelant Jensen radio! WTF!!!!! are they high! I'm going round and round with them when I go my buddy's body shop in Baytown... anyway he knows the guy who wrote my insurance policy so a quick phone call later and screwwww CCS! Good riddance! What a cluster... by the time I get home I am feeling crappy again fever is back up to 100 and I'm starting to get the dizzy delerium feeling... let me tell you what watching the Matrix while feeling like this is freaking cool... I guess I'll blog later to let you know how it turns out...
When it rains it pours... just this weekend Angie, Dade and I were out shopping and I found this lemon yellow dress shirt I wanted... problem was they didn't have my size... well the store, Express Men has a deal where if another store has it they will ship right to you... cool! The next day(sunday) my sister and me and others get in this nice long discussion about sensor tags and how to cut them off and how people steal with the tags on and stuff... zoom to yesterday, I get a package ... cool my shirt and guess what!!! still has the damn tag on it! and it's the kind that is hard to cut off... the very nice young lady at Palais Royal helped me take it off... geeze!
Now I do not want anyone to think damn and feel sorry for me because you know the way I look at this ... I have big lows and big highs! all this BS is nothing more than another cool story in the 'ol gun belt!

Remember I was talking about MobyDock in a previous blog entry... ack! I tried it and it ate my machine so buyer beware. Try ObjectDock instead, but... my HOSS of a machine could not handle it so... check it...
You know my POS truck is about to eclipse the benefit of actually owning the vehicle... so I've been preparing for what I'd get... what do you think...
Scion tc $16K
Infinity G35 Coupe $33K
...the thing is if I got the Scion I could throw a few bucks at customizing the crap out of... Navigator stereo system and lots cool bling... only in a geeked out way of course... but the G35 sure is sweet looking... tough choice... I am planning on keeping the truck until it melts down though so maybe I won't have to decide for awhile...

I went to an event this morning that I thought was going to be cool, but I had no idea! The HAAG 2004 Arcade EXPO!!!!!!
was freaking awesome... I'd swear I was 10 again! There were tons of video and pinball games there most from the 80s all on free play or so full of credits it didn't matter. They had the room lights turned down low and loud music playing mostly 80s and techno. There I was playing Dragon's Layer jamming to some U2 and I realized I was smiling so hard my teeth had dried out. The realization almost brought a tear to my eye. It was further enhanced by the fact that Dade was there and he was digging it too... I played Tempest, Asteroids, Space Invaders, Robotron, Berzerk, Tron, Moon Patrol, Crazy Climber!!!!, Donkey Kong, Track and Field... the list goes on... it was so good... I did not want to leave... My friend G was there allong with J & J kis kids... to great, V.COOL! i.am.samu.80s.geek.and.I.love.it!
On a sad note I just heard that Ronald Reagan has died. As I watch some of the news coverage they are rehashing the legacy of his Presidency... this has got to be bad news for the Dems. It's obvious that he was bad ass, his policies were bad ass, everything he did worked. He started with sky high inflation complete flip by his 8th year. The air traffic controllers threatened to strike ... what did he do? Fire their ass! Good! I mean come on he ended the cold war! President Reagan thank you for everything, you will be missed!
