There's been a flurry of activity on our street lately. So far:
- us: moved in last December, had a new roof put on
- people across the street: moved in a few months ago, currently ripping down aluminum siding
- Mike and Kirstin (two houses down across the street): moved in a few weeks ago, already got a new roof, getting new siding
- people three houses down across the street: moved in a few months ago, painted the wood siding, getting dormers and a new roof
- house down the block on our side (don't know who bought it): sold a few weeks ago, removed the screening from the porch, getting a new roof and removing the (asbestos?) siding
Busy, busy, busy...

Well that's nice to know:
Air conditioners: why leave off for three minutes?

Dear LukPac.org readers, I have a game for you. Well, it's probably not that much fun, so let's call it a challenge. I've discovered that I have a way of saying *exactly* the same thing multiple times. It could be within the context of an IM conversation, message board postings, or even things I wrote in high school. Take the following example.
Recently I've become reacquainted with a friend of mine from high school/college. Compare what I wrote to her in an e-mail the other day:
"Why am I having memories of Band I with Mr. Lanning? :)"
With what I wrote on her senior picture, May 1997:
"These last 4 years have been fun. I still remember band with Mr. Lanning! Was that fun or what. :)"
Right down to the damn smiley face.
So, yes, I implore you, dear readers, to find such highly amusing cases of déjà vu here on LukPac.org. Or, just have another beer. I know you will.
On second thought, have the beer, but help me out. "Déjà vu" doesn't seem to fit here. Yet I can't think of a better term. Dear readers, what would you label this phenomena? Other than "strange"?

You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant

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. Education:
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.
