Shaken, not stirred

That’s right folks… Line up behind me for some. 🙂

I make a damn good martini

Now this is a way to end a rainy Friday night!

Sometimes all you need

…is a nice beer to ease your day’s problems

Grab one from the fridge!

Care to join me??

Bring on 29 baby!

Whoever said turning 28 was bad just didn’t know what they’re talking about! This has got to be one of the best birthdays I have ever had.

Devina just made me my absolute favorite dinner and got me a gift certificate to Best Buy. My family got me even more gift certificates to my mecca. Karen got me an awesome textbook that is being used at the Culinary Institute of America. Steph got me a kick ass sake set and some strawberry ink scented pens from her most recent trip to Taiwan. I got tons of e-cards from all of my close friends. The Simpons’s 300th episode and Married with Children’s reunion show are on TV tonight and finally…

The almighty Jebus has seen it fit to give me 1-2 FEET of thick luscious snow which means I’m not going in to work tomorrow and staying in bed with Devina.

I am indeed one happy man this 28th year of my life.

Ashi Tashi Hah! Part Deux

So, so tired.

I’m pleased and damn proud to say that there is now one more black belt in the Tiger Schulman’s karate school. 🙂 Devina passed her test today and she’s quite the happy (though in lots of pain) camper. 🙂

This time around, one of the highlights of her sparring tests was that she kicked her opponent into the table where the judges were at and almost knocked it over. Hehe… That’s right, my baby showed no mercy. 😉

Completely off the subject here, after reading about it on Lisa’s site, I also submitted a photo of my desk to the True Desktop Project. I hope it gets submitted because it looks like a very cool site. It’s kind of interesting to see the desktops of people around the world.

In case you are wondering, here are the machines you see. Plucky is sitting on my newly built Redhat Linux box I keep at Devina’s. The machine that Curious George is sitting on (yes I keep stuffed animals… hmmph!) is the Dell I got myself this past Christmas. The specs in that are as follows:

Pentium 4 2.4GHz with 512MB PC2700 RAM
16X DVD, 40/12/52 CD-RW
120GB drive space
Audigy sound card connected to the 5.1 Creative speakers ya see on my desk
Crappy 64MB GeForce4 card that I’m gonna upgrade to a Radeon 9700 Pro on my birthday later this month.
