I HATE THIS GAME! I wish that someone would ]injected with a lethal
I married a gamer, I knew my husband was a gamer when we were dating, and often times we'd play games together during our dating phase. MIND YOU, not once in this 2 year period did I ever hear about a game called THE WORLD OF WARCRAFT. Until we found out I was pregnant then suddenly The World of Warcraft was a common household name. I watched my husband lose touch with "reality" as we know it. while I ate my ice cream and ate ice cream

At first it didn't bother me, in fact, I was glad he found something to do besides talking to my belly all the tiem. When I was pregnant I hardly ever left the house and I was clear to me that my husband spent more than 50 % of the day W.O.Wanted to stay home most of the time and as long as I had ice cream I was content watching him play. If I called out for him, he would make me wait until he was at a "stopping point" It's surprising that I even made it to the hospital the day I went into labor.

This game has sucked the sole out of my husband and now all his attention I soon read about This game has literally been known to destroy marriages... it literally stole my husband.

When this game first came out, I went down to the local game store to buy it but they had stopped shipping it, Maybe God was protecting me from getting sucked in.

liquid cooling not included

darn it, I opened the box of the case to check it out (still no parts yet as I am stingy and like to hunt for good deals for making computer) and it turns out that the giant thermaltake box came with:

NO Waterblock
NO radiator
NO hoses
NO special liquid cooling stuff

Checking the desc it says this but in the small print, looking at froogle the cheapest one that actually comes with the liquid cooling kit cost over $50 more. I'm not feelin that.

Turns out it was just a case, a giant gaint case. The thing was way bigger than I expected, it was as tall as Abagail. Luckily has a 30 day return policy so I'm ok there. I am deff going to use a different case though for new system, that was was too expensive and too bulky, it looked cool yeah but holding it... not so much. Save such a thing for you guys making servers.

My Hero

Today I was steaming up some chai tea mix + soy milk and saw something skurry across the counter. Normally if something travels across the counter it is an ant that I have to squish with my finger (they come in packs) but there came a great creature.

I know spiders can't speak but if this one could I'm sure it would say it is here to rid my kitchen of evil ants.

On tuesday I forced myself to go down town and spend hours studying, it was a major victory for me as you can tell by the previous post. I saw a couple three people that I knew too in the engineering lab so that was fun.

Worst student EVER

For my physics class it is a mon/wed/friday class but because I work nights back half of the week going to class on friday is like going to lecture at midnight for me. So I don't go it is just not worth it unless there was a test or an assignment due. It sucks because this is the only time this year this class is offered. Having no selection bugs me.

Anyway, last week I was going to due my homework while I took my car in to get fixed because I didn't really have anything else planned but that and community group.

Didn't happen

I hurt my ankle that night too so I didn't want to walk on it wednesday so much because I have to stay on my feet alot for work so I didn't go to class. I figured I could do that homework that I put off

Didn't happen.

So today I got up early and worked on the homework that I put off, turns out that while I was gone they assigned another homework assignment that is due in about 15 mins. I tried to work on it for a while but it is about xray defraction and though I was in some of the lectures and read the notes it looks like jibberish to me. The homework isn't graded but there is a test on wednesday and if I don't understand the concepts if there is a test question that isn't just plug in numbers to an equation I'm so sunk.

God's people care

So after spending some time thinking last night when we were at la fugata I was talking to Justin about the below post. One of the things that a guy there who helps out with the projuction really has a servant's heart. His name is Tori and when I was back stressing out about people being mad at me, he asked me

"Paul how much do you get paid?" I answered "Nothing" To which he replied, "You are working for the Lord"

Maybe at that moment it didn't sink in but what he said was really wise. And was really a blessing to me.

Today at Mount Olivet the guy I normally work with for sound wasn't there. He tends to work the board and I set up the stage. Now he was gone, didn't tell me told someone else but I never heard of it. So I hadn't ever set up the board before because he always does it. I've seen it done a couple times but never did it myself.

So I tried, but we had monitors but no house speakers. We meet at south ridge high school so the setup is a bit weird, they have the stage all wired, it leads back to the south booth / lighting booth up above the auditorium, so we take those leads snake them down to our own board and plug in our board into the their board and use their amp and speakers. Turns out that there was a couple leads labled output on our board and I pluged in above the lable, but it should have been below. Spent an hour of a half trying to get house speakers working and nothing :(

They just turned the monitors around facing the crowd and cranked them up so everyone could hear. After the service it took my friend Leno 5 mins to see the problem, switch the plugs and all the of mics worked.

Not so annoying

Well after pondering what could happen, I first thought that maybe the connection melted down and was all dead like the right headlight a few months after I got it. But the plug seemed fine. And no Wes, I didn't use solder I used splices that you connect with a crimper they are much easier.

Anywho, clutch is starting to slip worse so I know that I need to replace it. I went to Basset auto (they were good to me last time I was there several years ago for new wieldshield) and the guy said yeah, clutch is going out, that can be replaced with a normal one for 880 or high performance racing one for 1087, seeing that my car is only worth $3000 and something I'm going to go with the later.

But before that I tested out the headlight plug with the old fixture and there was nothing, I know it worked before. What got me thinking was that both the high beams and the low beams went out. So I thought there might have been a short or something. Sure enough, there is a belt near where the wires (which with the new lights are way longer than they need to be) the wires were rubbing up against it probally. The metal was showing.

The mechanic said he'd fix it for $70, and that there were 2 fuses blown. For some reason I had it stuck in my mind that I needed a multi-meter to check if a fuse was blown. The desk dude said originally that they can't sell me fuses because they are not a part store but then changed his mind because I was for sure going to get the clutch fixed. I was worried about identifying it but on the back of the panel there was a little schematic about which slots went to which so it was really easy to just look and take out the fuse, sure enough it was black in the middle and the zig had burnt out, didn't need a multimeter to test that. So I taped up the wires round each other a bit and to towards the front with electrical tape (no more exposed metal) and replaced the blown fuses. So now I no longer am one light louie.

Sunday night I went to a party with some people from church an Dammy saw that there was some strange creature pirched on the edge of the couch. He asked if this was real or some kind of a joke. It was perfectly still so I blew on it and it moved! John took it out side so it could be back in nature. I haven't seen on of these babies in years!
