More photos. I arranged things a bit, and uploaded albums from our housewarming party and tooling around today.

Thanks to everyone who came to the party. It was a bit insane. I wasn't ignoring you, really.

Happy (first) 29th birthday, Amy.

And happy birthday to Pat Robertson too!

E-mail from a friend:
(as an aside, my spell check program keeps asking me if "Pacholski" should be "Peaches"!! I think from now on I shall refer to Luke as "Peaches" . . .)
I like it. I think.

So...the big plan for the weekend was to get the dining room painted, or at the very least ready to be painted. didn't happen. Well, Amy got a little more wallpaper glue off, but other than that, nothing. But yet I feel really good. As I already mentioned, the stove is finally back in the kitchen. The dining room table is back. We've got some (temporary) furniture in the living room, and more stuff is out of the front porch. And we even got some new curtains for the living room. Sure, I wish we would have gotten more done, and there's a lot yet to do, but it feels like we're actually making progress. Hopefully it continues.

The stove is finally back in the kitchen (and hooked up!). Ahh.

First, bless Russ for attempting to censure the president. I *really* hope other Democrats are holding off on this for the right reasons, specifically because they want to be sure of the legal issues involved. If that's not it, though, and they are simply interested in attracting "swing voters" come November, FUCK THEM. One of the biggest reasons the Republicans have the power they do today is because Democrats are really afriad that the majority of people agree with Republicans and don't want to somehow disturb them. GROW SPINES. You're not going to get back into power by being nothing more than Republican-lite.

Of course, Republicans today are a total joke. If we keep saying it over and over...:
Frist, a Tennessee Republican, called the measure "a political stunt that is addressed at attacking the president of the United States of America when we're at war."

He criticized Feingold for introducing the censure resolution "at the same time we have terrorists right now intending to attack Western civilization and the people of our homeland."
The vice president asserted that Americans "agree with the president, and our administration's position is clear -- If there are individuals inside our country talking with al Qaeda overseas, we want to know about it."
Do you think Cheney really believes the crap that comes out of his mouth? Bush's overall approval rating continues to hover under 40%, only 28% of Americans support having their phone tapped, while only 41% think the Bush administration should be able to wiretap without a court order. *Who* agrees with our president, exactly?

It looks like "North American Lottery Corporation" is also doing "business" as "Skyline Gaming Group". Somebody e-mailed me to let me know a friend of theirs got pretty much the same pitch from them. Look out people! WHOIS details in the comments page.

Heh. A Google search for "North American Lottery Corporation" has my site as the first result. I rock.

The Simpsons Archive

Vital stats:
DOB 2/16/79. I'm a web developer at the Wisconsin Department of Corrections. I like lots of old music, including The Who. I spend a lot of time working with computers. And my favorite TV show (when I actually decide to watch TV, that is), obviously, is The Simpsons.

In May 2002 I officially graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a BS in computer science. In 1997 (man that seems like a long time ago) I graduated from Washington Park HS. Yes, I know, that site isn't very impressive, and no, I haven't touched it for several years.

One of the best experiences I have ever had was on a trip called Western Field Studies. This is a 33 day adventure throughout the western United States. Students travel on a school bus to national parks, monuments, forests, and places of historical interest and camp out (in tents or under the stars). I was a part of trip 25, which took place in the summer of 1996. A first for WFS was we took along a laptop computer and kept up a web site. That link will take you to the 1996 site, where there is a link to the current site.
