4.0

Wow. It's been quite a while. I've been quite the busy bee as of lately. I decided to rewrite the current Winamp.com to make it prettier. It was quite the undertaking. Infact, you're probably reading this .plan on it right now.

The new site, Winamp.com 4.0 is still a ways off. I'd say at least a few more months. This site was just a interim solution for a lot of little annoying bugs that we had with it's predecessor. At first, it was kinda a pleasure to do all that HTML work, however, two weeks into constant HTML coding, it was proving to be quite the nightmare. Fortunately, it's "done" It's not actually done. I'll have to go back after we come back from xmas and go through a whole bunch of pages that I merely hacked together in order to reach this deadline. *sigh*

My friends are going to drive up tomorrow afternoon. I'm kinda of excited actually. I haven't seen them for quite a while and it'll be nice to have some of my old LA friends around so have some fun. We're going to do the whole tourist thing. In fact, I've been living here for more than a year and I haven't even done the whole tourist thing. It's going to be a lot of fun, I hope.

I've been speaking with Erin a lot. I miss her. She's a fun person to have around and I wish that she were here at times. It's kinda sad to talk to someone on the phone and expect them to be simply a minute away, when you know it's not the case. Telephones are deceitful like that. I'll be going to visit her in the months ahead. I think it'll be a fun experience, although she seems to tell me that I'm going to be bored out of my mind in Rochester, we'll see about that.

I feel as though I've changed in that past fewmonths. I can't quite put my finger on it, however, I feel a little different. I feel perhaps a little bit older. I feel perhaps a bit more stressed out. Maybe I'm just crazy. Who knows. I'm just a freak like that.

I've started to play chess again. I love chess. It's an incredible game. Your brain buzzes, your heart pounds. It's a bit of so many ideas and concepts wrapped up into little plastic pieces and a cardboard game board. If you don't play chess, learn. It'll teach you more than you can ever learn.

We had our office holiday party. That was quite the site. We celebrated the evening at a local bar/club called the Tongue and Groove. It's an interesting name, wouldn't you say? The company rented out the place from 6:00PM till 2:00AM and maintained an open bar for the entirety of the evening. I don't remember much of the evening, however, this bits I do remember were not things to be proud of. I was told that after 5 shots of Tequila, 2 or maybe 3 Rum and Cokes and a glass of whiskey, I was passed out on the sidewalk in front of the club. It
was not very flattering, that's for sure.

I remember eating a white chocolate cookie of sorts. I recall it tasting quite good. I was told that Denny lost control of his social skills and picked up a block of cheese and consumed it in large mouth watering bites. He was smashed at the party, along with everyone else.

What lesson have I learned from the evenings events? Jose Cuervo is absolutely not your friend. That is all.
