Hit and Run

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

No, I’m not talking about the old Simpson’s video game either, but rather a bit of life that finally hit me this week (pun intended). I don’t think I’ve ever had this happen before, but some less honest person hit the front hood of my car, leaving a rather nasty dent and scratches. No note, phone call, or anything. I found the damage this morning. Some people out there are just dishonest nuts.

There. I felt like getting that off my chest, so the whole world can know about it. Part of having a blog I guess. I’m sure there are enough folks out there that have this kind of thing happen, and I feel for you folks too.

Other than that, this has been a costly week for my car, but I’m still grateful for having one. I had to pay for lots of overdue maintenance and brake replacements. Only down side for now, I may have to put off getting some electronic stuff for next years MGC show. Just a fact. Priorities, priorities.

Summer 2009…

Monday, July 20th, 2009

It is almost halfway through Summer ’09, and honestly, time is flying by. I have to admit that I’ve done little for the UC ’09 display. I’ve been thinking a lot about it, but have not done much else. I’m debating on bringing the N64 this year. I also can’t decide on doing Quake again or not. I’d also like to get some extra hardware for the Apple II, but am holding back for the moment. This hardware would really help with the old IIgs and IIe, in replacing hard drives and floppies with an SD card!

Hope to get more in the swing of this soon (but probably later). I’ve got painting to do still, and school starts in just over a month!

On the side, my brother-in-law Greg bought a Wii recently!!! It sure helped with my buying a graduation gift for my niece Kayla. Actually, it’ll probably help with gifts now for the rest of the year (B-days and Xmas)! 🙂
