Well today I'm gonna pick up my drug test form from my part-time job after work. Then I'm not sure what I have planned, either work on my new layout or play halo. This semester is almost over it just flown by. I'm still not sure weather or not to take summer courses, one of the reason why I don't want to take is that it meets 2-3 times per week; and I prefer meeting once a week. Most likely I won't be taking it, unless there are other ways to bypass my preference, such as online courses? etc. Also today I made an appointment to see a counselor so that I can get my Certificate for my Web Design & Development, and also to go over my Computer Graphic Associate degree, which I'm not sure how many courses I have left. So I would like to organize everything so I don't end up taking classes I don't need and waste my time & money on the wrong courses.
I think I'm just very tired today from yesterday, I worked till 4:30 and drove to college and got home at 10:30ish 11, and went to bed late. When I get home from college, I still have to eat my dinner, as if classes aren't late enough I eat my dinner late. So Monday's suck. Thank god only 2 more weeks left YaY! -=o]
Last Weekend of April 2002
Well, lets see Friday, after work, I had decided to mow the lawn, because I originally wanted to do it like on wed or Thursday, but I was busy and rained. So I got home changed cloths and got to mow the lawn. I did a bang up job, I wanted to take a before and after picture, but the idea came to me after I finished the job, so there was no before picture, maybe next time.
After mowing, trimming, edging, & blowing. I was extremely tired and decided to go get a 6-pack to relax. After dinner I was watching "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" I had a corona, and I was so tired I kind of passed out watching the movie.
Saturday, I had to wake up early and go to an interview at PepBoy's for a part-time job. After the interview, I got the "we'll call you line", so I'm like ok/whatever. Saturday afternoonish/evening they called me and told me to come in and pick up a drug test form, so I'm assuming I got the job. Rest of the Saturday, My cousins and I played Halo over the Internet through the x-box. It's awesome and addicting, so addicting; I even played it for few hours on Sunday. Sunday I didn't really do much went out shopping and came home and played some more Halo.
That was the end of my weekend, as you can see from my weekends. I can use a part-time job, not to mention I can use that extra cash mainly for my car.
P.s. I'm still working on the new layout; I still haven't progressed to anything.
P.s., p.s., after looking back at this blog, I'm starting to notice I really suck at blogging. No wonder I'm not getting any hits or comments, -=ol. Maybe I ought to quit and just concentrate more on other things?
Well this week is flying, yesterday I thought it was Tuesday, but it was Wednesday, and today it feels like Wednesday, but its Thursday. Which is good in a way. I just hope the weekend does fly by.
I would like to update on few things. (while I was in the middle of this blog) I took a trip to the bathroom. I just noticed my hair. Keep in mind, I'm at work; my hair is four inches high up from my forehead (I measured it with a ruler), not to mentioned its spiked up. This does not look appropriate for work, I'm gonna have to trip it down, I need a haircut anyway; I was thinking of getting a cut this weekend.
Now about the site, I haven't really decided on a new layout yet, but I'm still thinking and maybe something different then what I had for the last two layouts. So I'm not sure when that's gonna happen.
Lately it's been slow at werk (ahem).. and so I found these few games to keep my self busy.
Game-Description (note: none of these games are download, you can play them on your browser.)
Collapse- Score points by clicking and thus detonating unassuming like-colored blocks that are in clusters
Mini-Golf- 18-hole miniature golf, you have to use mathematical, calculation, angels, and projectory, etc and what not to get the ball in the hole.
Dart- Another 3-D flash based dart game, I only played this twice, I'm not sure as to how you win, I mean.. well try it and you'll see. (or maybe I just don't know how to play it)
Arcade Grand Prix- F-1 Racing game, i haven't tried this one yet, but i will.
HitchHikers- Text based game, its weird; you have to type in stuff for your action and stuff. I didn't really like it.
Well, that's all for now.
A $103,000 speeding ticket?
A guy in Finland, got a speeding ticket for $103,000. I was shocked when i 1st read it, and i just got as to why its that much. Well in Finland your fine is based not just on the severity of the offense, but on the offender's income. Vanjoki is a senior executive of Nokia, the world's largest cell-phone maker, and his fine was assessed on a 1999 income of $5.2 million.
..and in the News
What if.... there were no Pennies?
Japan builds world's fastest supercomputer
I suppose its time for another update, let me re-cap my boring life (weekend).
(Note: if you're into import cars then read, if not; then skip this paragraph)
Well let's see Friday I got my car slammed. Slammed to the f-ing ground, 2inch Eibach drop. So as you can see from the picture, I can't pull up the driveway, so I'll be parking on the side street. If that wasn't bad enough, when it rains (insert pix of rain) the area that I'll be parking in tends to overflow with extreme amount of water (insert pix of water flowing), which could lead to flooding in my car, which is now closer to ground. So the car looks hotter, but I have to watch out for few things, such as what I just explained, and not scraping it while I drive; which is a good thing, because now I can drive slowly and not drive like a maniac. Which reminds me, now that it's dropped, the handling is so good, I could prolly take a 50mph turns, hehz. I should take that out of my head, because when the time comes, I'm prolly gonna try that, and I shouldn't; I don't want to beat my car. I want it to last.
Weekend was pretty good, not so bad didn't do anything, wow I have a pretty boring life. So Saturday I went to a Computer show. Which even sucked more, cuz it was wack, too small, no good deals, and the prices were way high, I was looking for memory 256sdram, they were going for $54. 512 for $100+. I could very well get those memory at Best Buys or CompUSA, for 256=$45, and 512=$80 (at least, of couse with mail in rebates). One thing did catch my eye, those small minis CD-ROM. Which I was tempted to get, but I would have paid too much. Though now I'll have to look for them. (My Thought: would the mini CD-ROM work, if I burnt songs on it.. and played it in my car?. Would the car CD player accept the mini CDs? If so I'm converting my entire car CDs to mini CDs (leave your opinion in the comment area)).
Finally Sunday, was kind of a good day. Usually on Sunday I get this headache and I hate Sunday, I think I posted that on one of the post last week or so. But this Sunday was different. I didn't get a headache, (wait I did have a headache but it was on Saturday). Ok so Sunday woke up early don't know why, well early then usually like 9:30ish I think. And the day went very slow, and it wasn't bad cuz I didn't have a headache. Only thing was that I was bored all day.
Game Played: (on X-box)
p.s. I think I'm going to change the layout again.. nothing is going for this one. Usually I upgrade/update the existing layout, but this one it just not working. So I'm in the process of a new one.
I hate the fact that where I work, or actually most of the places I've worked at, crank up the AC in the building, and it starts to freeze. When you actually walk in to the building, you can feel as if you walked into a refrigerator. I don't mind if it's nice and cool, but freezing, and especially when you come from outside when it's like 80-90 degree. It's like walking out of an oven and walking straight into the refrigerator. In the evening I usually get this headache and it's from going back and forth with hot and cold. Worst part is that the car I bring to work doesn't have AC so the windows are down; and I hate the hot humid air blowing, that's even worst then the heat; and I can't close the window or turn the AC on, it blows warm air, not to mention my back and everything gets all semi-wet. It’s the worst feeling in the world.
Blah. I'm done.. about to go home..
Tips on How to stay cool this summer:
Drink, drink, drink. When it's really steamy, you should be consuming a pint of water every 90 minutes or so. Note: Opinions on that number vary, but be sure to drink enough water so that your urine is clear and odor free. Clean and clear, never fear. Yellow and stinky, drinky, drinky, drinky! If you have a hard time drinking enough fluid, invest in a water bladder with a hose so you can drink on the go.
Eat. Keep salty and revitalizing snacks -- like nuts, dried fruit and energy bars -- handy to replenish what you lose as you sweat.
Keep clean. If you have the option of jumping into a lake, river or the ocean for a quick dip, do it. It'll unclog your pores so you can continue to sweat effectively. Plus it feels sooooo good.
Wear long sleeves. If it's hot and dry, go with a long-sleeve cotton shirt. Hot and humid? Wear a synthetic shirt with good venting. Either way, white or another light color absorbs less heat than dark ones. This goes for all apparel.
Wear a hat. Turn a regular baseball cap into a bona fide desert hat by placing a bandana underneath it to protect your ears and back of neck from sunburn. Better yet, soak that bandanna in cool water before placing it under your hat. It's almost as good as eating an ice cream cone.
Seek shady spots. We shake our heads as tourists stand talking on baking asphalt when it's 15 degrees cooler under a tree 3 feet away.
Pop your underwear in the freezer for a half-hour before dressing. Pajamas work the same.
Take a cool shower before bed. Those without air conditioning -- or modesty -- don't towel off, sleep bare and turn on a fan.
Wear loose-fitting cotton. Anyone in a wool suit or pantyhose when the thermometer passes 90 deserves to be miserable.
Eat a bit of Gulukand (rose petal jam) each hot afternoon. This product is found in Indian groceries.
Run cold water over your inside wrists.
Set a bowl of ice or cold water in front of a moving fan.
Dampen your clothing.
Use a wet washcloth on your forehead. Move it often to help release heat.
Put your feet in a basin of cool (not cold) water.
Lie on the floor, preferably hard surfaced.
Be lazy. When the temperature soars, sit.
Wear loose, light - colored, cotton clothing.
Drink water, and plenty of it. It's cheap preventative medicine.
Avoid caffeine, alcohol and stress.
Eat light, as in fruits and raw vegetables. Go easy on protein; it increases your body's heat production.
Daydream - snowstorm, cool rain, the North Pole. Cheap relief!
I aim the fan right at the bed or couch while I lie there and mist myself with a spray bottle of water.
A college roommate from India gave me this idea. She sprinkled her cotton sheets with water before she went to bed on hot nights.
If the heat becomes unbearable, go to the moivies or the mall. Practically every public space has air conditioning which you can access for little or no cost
Now there's no excuse not to do it! Grab a blob and claim him for your own
This is where i got the blob from, there are some other cool things to check out, i.e.
I don't feel like blogging, so here's a joke.
Lulu was a prostitute, but she didn't want her grandma to know. One day, the
police raided a whole group of prostitutes at a sex party in a hotel, and
Lulu was among them.
The police took them outside and had all the prostitutes line up along the
driveway when suddenly; Lulu's grandma came by and saw her granddaughter.
Grandma asked, "Why are you standing in line here, dear?"
Not willing to let her grandmother know the truth, Lulu told her grandmother
that the policemen
were there passing out free oranges and she was just lining up for some.
"Why, that's awfully nice of them. I think I'll get some for myself," and
she proceeded to the back of the line.
A policeman was going down the line asking for information from all of the
When he got to Grandma, he was bewildered and exclaimed, "Wow, still going
at it at your age? How do you do it?
"Grandma replied, "Oh, it's easy, dear. I just take my dentures out, rip the
skin back and suck them dry."
........The policeman fainted
Thank god it's Friday.. I'm very excited. I'm going to Central Jersey(i'm in south Jersey near philly) after work today, and hopefully tomorrow i'm getting my Eibach 2 inch drop(srpings,coilovers..etc) installed on my car. Along with Side markers & Foggies. Crossing my fingers, because technically i wanted to get it done last week and i didn't.
Wow, i never realized blogging can be so hard, when i first started i used to babbling on about everything, but recently i noticed i haven't done that (well till today) and that for my past few post are just either pictures or some news i got from somewhere.
When i started blogging, I kinda did it to vent and well i haven't been able to do that. Not only because i'm not sure weather to share personal information and other related information that i would like to keep to my self. I guess i can continue what I've been doing and see how things work out.
MuLTi ShApEs Cd-RoMs, They look pretty nice.

* D - Damn good
* E - Enormous
* F - Fake
* G - GOOD GOD
* H - Heavy
I just read this story - I don't know if it's true, but it certainly is funny.
This is a true story about a recent wedding that took place at Clemson University. This was a huge wedding with over 300 guests. After the wedding at the reception, the groom got up on stage and took the microphone to talk to the crowd. He said that he wanted to thank everyone for coming, many from long distances, to support them at their wedding. He especially wanted to thank the bride's and groom's families for coming and to thank his new father-in-law for providing such a fabulous reception. To thank everyone for coming and bringing gifts and everything, he said he wanted to give everyone a special gift from just him. Taped to the bottom of everyone's chair (even the chairs of the wedding party) was a manila envelope. He said that was his gift to everyone, and told everyone to open their envelopes.
Inside each manila envelope was an 8x10 picture of his best man having sex with the bride. He had gotten suspicious of the two of them and hired a private detective to trail them weeks prior to the wedding. After he stood there and watched the people's reactions for a couple of minutes, he turned to the best man and said ''F*ck you'' he then turned to the bride and said ''F*ck you" and then he turned to the dumbfounded crowd and said.....''Thanks, I'm out of here.''
He had the marriage annulled first thing that Monday morning. While most of us would have broken off the engagement immediately after finding out about the affair, this guy goes through with it anyway as if nothing was wrong.
His revenge: 1) Making the bride's parents pay over $32,000 for a 300 guest wedding and reception. 2) Letting everyone know exactly what did happen. 3) And best of all, trashing the bride's and best man's reputations in front of all of their friends, their parents, brothers, sisters, grandparents, nieces and nephews, etc.... Ya gotta love this guy.
Winner of the X-Box give away (me)
Roughly about a month ago, I got a letter from SJI, Fulfillment Co, or Inc. / Taco Bell. At 1st I was going to throw it out thinking it was junk mail. But I always tend to open my mail; I look at it and then throw it out. So I'm reading and the letter states I "May" be a winner for the X-box give away. So I'm thinking to my self… Hmmm I didn't really remember applying but I do remember hearing something about the X-box give away. If you remember, those ads were everywhere. "Taco bell & X-box give away". So it turns out I was qualified in the 2nd drawing, and I had 10 days to notarize and reply back to the mail. At the time I wasn't sure as to what to expect. Coincidentally my GF had just gotten her Notary permission, so we sent the letter out, not to mention it was late. Still we sent it out, hoping we had nothing to lose and maybe get something out of it?
So today I get phone call from my dad around 11:15.
Me: Jay speaking may I help you.
Dad: what did u order?
Dad: you got a package
Me: I didn't order anything
Dad: Well I just signed for a package on your name.
Me: confused, hmm where is it from?
Dad: you're telling me not to get stuff, and you're ordering stuff for you car. (My dad and me are both e-bay addict)
Me: what are you talking about, I didn't order anything.
Dad: It's from SJI, Fulfillment
Me: hmm thinking sounds familiar (at the time I didn't know what it was), so I said open it.
Dad: (opening the package) it’s an X-box
Dad: You ordered an X-box
Me: no, I won it.
Dad: oh you won it?
Dad: ok good, bye.
Me: bye (screaming in my head, Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, I freakin won)
Well all those taco bell food finally paid off; I just ate taco bell yesterday. By the way Taco Bell is my favorite food.
p.s. come back later tonight, i will add pic of the new X-box

Time for a new layoutI was working on a blog last night, but couldn't get the (ahem) Ftp to work. So there are no updates, but I just had a brilliant idea, and will be working on a new layout.
