Happy New Years and other shnitz

Walked over to Wal-Mart today to exchange the pants I gotten for Xmas. There was one, I repeat, just one pair of pants my size there. Luckily it was just what I wanted. Picked up a new pair of sneakers since the ones I wear now are just a bit long in the tooth. Bought a pair of pants for my mom for her to use at work. Headed over to the electronics section but didn't see any CDs that I really wanted right now. I grabbed a box of Age of Empires II and debated whether I should get it or not... for about 3 seconds. ;o)

I had moved my room around about 3 days ago, made much easier now that I have a normal bed rather than a waterbed. I'm not sure I'm liking this configuration that I thought was ok then. I'll probably try something different soon. I reiterated my intention to get rid of my aquarium to my mom but I wondered what I was going to do with the tank since there's no place to store it here in the apartment. Mom mentioned someone at work was thinking of getting one but she couldn't remember who, but she'd ask around.

My QuakeScope for this week...

"Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 21): Disappointments regarding partners will be subject to the way you react to their personal comments. You will have an inaccurate assessment of your status in society. Investments will not be as they appear this week. Don't let someone talk you into parting with your cash unless you can truly see the benefits of doing so. Your best game day this week will be Friday. If you've recently upgraded your hardware but your game seems to be suffering from the experience, don't lose faith! You'll be fragging to new heights once you get used to your new setup or net connection. Your best weapon this week will be the Railgun for Q2, Plasma for Q3A or sizzle 'em up with the Lightning Gun in Q1. Check out some new maps to add some spice to your gaming life!"
