What thats supposed to mean I really don’t know. It was hot. I dislike hot. Sorry.

Before I get into everything, I apologize for leaving you guys out of the loop so to speak. I’ve just had a lot on my mind and I didn’t really want to talk about any of it. I would much rather bottle it up and deal with it later, per my usually habit.

My grandfather is still unresponsive. The swelling in his brain has gone down and now everyone is on watch for signs of recovery. I’m not there so I can’t say anything first hand but apparently he’s at least opened his eyes once or twice. I hate waiting like this and the “no news is good news” bullcrap that my parents are shoveling isn’t helping. I am pretty close to my grandfather although not so much in the past few years. I’ve been “away” for quite some time obviously with first school and now life here in Texas. That’s no ones fault, just a point of fact. So, we continue to play the waiting game.

Work, well, is interesting. I know Jason will hate me but I’m afraid I still can’t really talk about it. Let’s just say that it’s material for that book I’ve yet to write. Hell, it’s probably at least a trilogy of books at this point. I’ll pay a quick homage to Jack Kerouac and call it the “Legend of DePear” or something. For those who aren’t good at mindless trivia, Jack’s books follow the lives of him and his friends and although he never formally published it as a collection under this title while he was alive he did refer to them as the Legend of Duluoz. End English lesson. Back to talking about work. In un-situation-ish work we’re gearing up for the pageant at the end of the month. I get to spend a whole week (8.5 days actually) in the human torture chamber know as Laredo TX. It’s apparently hot there, so I’ve been told.

On a more person level, Lauren and I have been able to kick back a little a relax a bit this week. We had a chance to check out Shrek 2 which was probably on par with it’s predecessor. We also got to see an Astros game against the Cubbies. Let me be the first to say that I really dislike Minute Maid Park. We sat somewhere in the middle along the first base line and we were at such an unparalleled angle to the field that we felt like we were going to fall out of our seats. It also didn’t help that we asked 3 (!) different official ballpark employees where our seats were and none of them had a clue. It took us 20 minutes and multiple wrong turns before we sat down. But hey, the tickets were free and the game was good, so what else can you ask for right?

Let’s see, what else… oh yeah, Full Spectrum Warrior comes out on Tuesday. That’ll be fun and time consuming. I borrowed 007:Everything or Nothing from my boss and I’m playing through that right now as a time killer between games of Desert Combat. I also got my Sony Clie up and working again and I’m going to be passing it off to Lauren would could really use a PDA for work. There’s so many notes and phone numbers and such that she needs I figured it would be more helpful for her than for me. I was only really using it for Bejeweled, Insainiquarium and to balance my checkbook anyway.

That’s pretty much it guys. I’m gonna go set up Blade Runner in the DVD player and grab some dinner.

Matt out.
