Rita update and some good news!

Just in case anyone reading this might be worried, James and I will be heading to Austin this weekend to get out of the way of Rita. Not that I'm too worried about lots of destruction this far north, but this whole area is in a flood plain and we'll just be erring on the side of caution.

And if by Monday the Woodlands hasn't been blown away, I will be employed! Monday morning I start work for Maersk Seaward in the Woodlands, right down the street from here actually. I'll be working in the Documents dept, and will let you all know more as I find I out.

Avast ye scurvy chum-guzzlers!

You are The Cap'n!

Some men are born great, some achieve greatness and some slit the throats of any man that stands between them and the mantle of power. You never met a man you couldn't eviscerate. Not that mindless violence is the only avenue open to you - but why take an avenue when you have complete freeway access? You are the definitive Man of Action. You are James Bond in a blousy shirt and drawstring-fly pants. Your swash was buckled long ago and you have never been so sure of anything in your life as in your ability to bend everyone to your will. You will call anyone out and cut off their head if they show any sign of taking you on or backing down. You cannot be saddled with tedious underlings, but if one of your lieutenants shows an overly developed sense of ambition he may find more suitable accommodations in Davy Jones' locker. That is, of course, IF you notice him. You tend to be self absorbed - a weakness that may keep you from seeing enemies where they are and imagining them where they are not.

So I'm making stew and...

I start thinking, "I REALLY want to have some friends over."

So far, Jessica has been the only one of my friends to see the place. And then I realized that all of my bestest of friends live waywayway away. *sigh*

But I WILL have friends over. In fact, mark your calendar now for Sunday March 5, 2006! That is the date of the 78th annual Academy Awards and I will be hosting my (In my own world)famous FIESTA DE OSCAR!! Themed Osca party, the theme to be announced later! Alla youse who live far away I will understand if you cannot make it, but if you can, I really hope you will come. So, put it in your date books and PDA's, OK? Ok.

And hey, If you wanna come over before then as well, I won't turn ya away. I might even cook.

Speaking of which...back to being barefoot in the kitchen...

Join my evil sponge monkey haids!

Catch 27 is a fun and addictive online game/meeting space/blog spot/whatever that turns you into a playing card. Yes, YOU are the card! And ANYONE can own you. And YOU can own anyone! (that should appeal to you doms out there)

Here is my card as an example:

Daniel's card

Here's what the offical site has to say:

Catch27.com: It's a game. A social scene. An un-lame way to meet people.

All you have to do is create your personal trading card and start your pack.

Then you COLLECT friends . . . TRADE friends . . . . and BUY friends ......Just like baseball cards.

Yes, it's heartless.

Yes, it's cruel.

But your social life is a game anyway. Why not PLAY it?

So what are you waiting for? Click here to get caught! You know you want to be owned by me ;)

Monkey haided stream of consciousness style rambling updates...

So I'm sitting here at home watching home improvement shows on TV and saying "Oooo.. Bamboo floors would look so good in the greatroom" when I suddenly realize that I truly feel "at home" here. It doesn't feel like I'm James's perpetual houseguest anymore. Sweet! :) Now we just need to fill it with stuff!
I joined a gym. Not that I want to ge all buff (although more definition would be sweet). I just want more energy. I'm tired of being so tired all the time. Hopefully this will make me feel better and give me something to do out of the house. Also, my New Year's resolution included Big Sexy Arms and Pectoral Muscles....
I absolutely HATE these new commercials featuring children in clothes too old for them doing pop-and-lock hip=hop dance routines selling clothes. It irritates the hell out of me. And what about the back to school commercial with the "Baby Got Backpacks" song? Why the FUCK does an eight year old need a cell phone pocket on his backpack?
James ordered us City of VIllains! (yay!) Today they were supposed to send out the bonus preorder disk with the Beta test. I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO psyched! I can't wait! Now if only there was a way to make my villain fight with ElectriCub...hmmmmm....
TRF rehearsals are in full swing and things are going well. I was a little unsure about this year's Commedia troupe, but I am much more confident that we will ROCK. Although, i think I am ready for something else next year. I Have been Pest going on five years now, and I am starting to get burned out. I'd like something less complicated, maybe something more brutish. Well, I'd at least like to fight.
Speaking of which, it's been raining every day. Not bad, not long. But FUCK that needs to stop before Faire. I SOOOOOOO don't want a wet season. Especially because choking humidity soon follows these storms.
...That is all for now...more later
